From "A Little Rain" (p. 10)

by David P. Langlinais

Early the third morning, the rain paused, and Luke followed his parents outside, each holding a mug steaming with coffee. The water had overtaken the citrus orchard and was nearing the patio. They assessed the bayou that stretched from where they stood clear across to the backdoor steps of the houses on the other side of the river, looking a mile wide, looking like a shipping channel and not a bayou that, normally, was hardly wide enough for a tugboat to push a barge laden with shell.

“I still say it ain’t nuttin’ but a little rain,” his father said, the denial still in his voice, but no longer sounding so certain anymore.
