How Rainbows Were Made

So, I had to write this for school and thought it was postable. Enjoy!

This is the story of how rainbows were made. This tale takes place in a far off time. It was much simpler and happier, especially for the unicorns. Back then they weren’t in hiding. They were able to frolic as they pleased. You see, they still exist; they just have to file their horns to blend in. That’s the reason why some horses have spots on their foreheads. Horn nubs.

            The unicorns were planning a huge festival to celebrate the summer solstice. They had been planning since mid December. The summer solstice was a very important event. It was the day where all the unicorns shed their horns and grew new ones. Every year they elected a head of the committee. This year it was Marigold. She was still young, but very talented.

            The week before the solstice Marigold was stepping out of her stable, getting ready to go pick up some supplies. Her fellow planners were meeting her at the field. The sun struck her caramel mane, highlighting the red streaks. She started to trot over to the field when something hit her side, pushing her off balance. As soon as she got up, she noticed her friend, Skylar, shaking herself off.

“Sky! Whatever are you doing?”

She was shocked to see Sky, as she was in charge of making sure the weather was perfect for the festivities.

“I finished early. I needed to talk to you, so here you are!”

“Well, I need to get to the main field, so talk while we trot.”


            They started walking towards the field. Skylar was picking at her blue coat with her hooves, getting splotches of mud off of it.

“So, we need to get something for the sky.”

“What type of something? More clouds? More birds? We don’t have time to place an order.”

“No. Not clouds or birds. We need something colorful.”

            Marigold stopped in a huff. She was very busy and didn’t have time for Sky’s games.

“Colorful? Like confetti?”

“No. Something big. Confetti is to small and messy.”

“Let’s ask the others. Maybe they can think of something.”

The resumed their trot to the field. Skylar thinking of what colors their big thing should be and Marigold thinking of what their big thing would be. As they reached the field they spotted the rest of the committee. They were all standing in a semicircle around the front of a large stage. The stage was for the performances on the solstice. It was fully decorated in streamers and sparkles.


Marigold started galloping towards the stage, a look of glee on her face. The other unicorns turned towards her and smiled.

“I’m glad you like it. It took all week to finish.”

That was Flora. She was in charge of the decorations. Next to her was Brilee. Brilee was in charge of the performances and scheduling. Next to her was Hannah-Beth. Hannah-Beth was in charge of the food for the day. All of them had been chosen for different reasons, the most important of which being they all had amazing creativity.

“It’s amazing. Give me the report girls. We have a week to pull this together.”

“Well, as you can see, the stage is set. We have some different bands coming to perform. Also, Hannah-Beth has found some people to do the cooking from some of her recipes. We are all good.”
