Not What it Appears

This story was inspired by a picture prompt from the WriYe DreamWidth.  Now that I’ve got my NaNo goal, I can get back to doing these… I saw the picture and wondered, “What would my magic kids think if they saw this dog?”

Lyall did a double-take when he saw the dog trotting through the courtyard.  He turned to Henry with a scowl.  “Does that dog have pink and blue stripes?” he asked.7b93124f1cbd770990f1fa4406f21640

Henry looked at the dog speculatively for a moment and then shook his head.  “Purple, blue and green,” he said, nodding.  Tilting his head to the other side, he added, “Possibly yellow as well, near his tail and the tail is almost certainly pink.”

Lyall rolled his eyes.  “How did the dog get to be rainbow colored?” he asked, shaking his head.  “I don’t know any spell that does that.”

“Chalk,” Caius said, coming up behind them.  He grinned at Lyall and shrugged.  “Someone was coloring on the sidewalk with it and the dog lay down on their rainbow: rainbow colored dog.”

Lyall blinked and then chuckled at his own foolishness.  “That makes far more sense than a spell,” he said, nodding.
