In a gloomy city there was a happy girl named Addie. She loved to draw, but was never allowed to use color. Her parents were artists, but since they lived in the city, all that her parents drew was nature with no color, they never thought about the beauty of color because they always use to think shading was more important than colors in their childhood.

Addie thought differently though. She always thought color was beautiful. Every time she went to her art class, all the art pieces around her were colorful. Her teacher used to persuade her to use color, but she always said no.
Then one day, Addie and her parents went on vacation out into the countryside. Addie was so excited! She could finally see things that she has never seen before in the city. As she jumped into the car with excitement.
A few hours later she woke up and saw blurry colors on the window. She rubbed her eyes, and rubbed them again. She saw a color bomb in the sky! It was so bright and the colors were shining at her. She drew it in her sketchbook without colors and went back to sleep. She did not say anything to her parents, not even one word.
When she came back from vacation, she really wanted to ask her art teacher about the color bomb! During reading time at school, her teacher Ms. Courtney decided to read Noah's Ark to the class, and how Noah saved all the animals from the flood and a rainbow appeared! “So that is what that color bomb is called, a rainbow!” Addie said aloud. Everyone stared at her. Addie just smiled.
Moments later when Addie had art class, she showed her art teacher Ms. Alla her drawing of a rainbow. “Wow! What a beautiful rainbow! But why didn't you use color?”
“Because…'' Addie hesitated, “It's a rainbow! You can use color!” Addie didn't answer and walked back to her table. “I'm gonna draw a rainbow with colors!” she said to herself.
As the school day finished she ran back home, with her rainbow drawing behind her back, she was extremely excited to show her parents what she did in art class.
“Mom, Dad, come here! I want to show you something!” Her mom and dad walked leisurely to her, as Addie smiled brighter than a field full of sunflowers, Addie slowly took out the drawing behind her back, the colors hit them in the eyes. They had never seen so much color before!
“That… that… that's beautiful! That's the most beautiful drawing I have ever seen!” Mom said, and they hugged each other with all their might. “I'm so sorry Addie, I will let you use any color you wish for!” as the sun beamed a rainbow and smiled at Addie.
As she went to sleep that night, it was the cosiest she had ever been. Her eyes closed with the biggest smile, as the moon said goodnight.
