From the porch of their grandmother’s house, Sarah and Alexandra watched as the rain storm gradually came to an end.
They loved playing soccer in the front yard. Alexandra played goalie between the two front yard trees, which served as posts for their net, while Sarah practiced shooting.
“The grass is still too wet to play,” Sarah said. “Let’s wait a while.”
“Yeah,” Alexandra agreed. They sat back in their chairs and watched as the grey clouds made way for blue sky. The sun came out.
“Look, a rainbow’s forming!” Sarah shouted.
“Cool!” Alexandra exclaimed.
“Did you know that it’s impossible to find the end of a rainbow?” said Sarah.
“That can’t be right.” Alexandra replied. “Look,” she continued, pointing far into the distance, “you can see that the rainbow comes to an end somewhere over there.”
“That’s just an optical illusion. It doesn’t actually end, I think,” Sarah replied.
“Only one way to find out!” Alexandra said, as she leaped down and began running across the front yard. Sarah jumped off her chair to run after her sister.
