So, for the sake of creativity, here is 1 of the 24 rejected stories in a 100 word format..

He nods his head towards the rainbow that touches the field a few short meters from them. “That your r-ride?”
She casts a sly glance towards the rainbow and smiles, flicking her forked tongue from her mouth as she does.
