Larz, Zeph, and their human friend Sam were playing outside when suddenly, out of nowhere all the clouds in the sky became extremely dark and rain began pouring down on them. Well, the three friends weren't going to let a little rain put a damper on their day, so they quickly ran inside to escape the sudden storm and enjoy a little of Sam's and Larz's favorite rainy day pastime: coloring! Zeph usually tended to have more interest in physical activities, but today even he agreed that some downtime during the downpour might be good, and he happily joined in on the fun.
The three looked through one of Sam's coloring books, and they each took out a page to color. Zeph decided to get one of outer space because it reminded him of home. The artsy Larz went for one of a museum, since he loves being around art. Sam picked an outdoor picture with hills because he loves the sky and nature. Sam opened his box of crayons and distributed them around - few for Zeph's space picture and some for Larz's museum. But, Sam didn't know what crayon to use for the sky in his picture because the blue crayon was missing! Luckily, Larz and Zeph had just the solution.
The Zee Zees took their crayons and some more out of the box. 'Look!' The two said at the same time. Larz and Zeph began beautifully coloring the sky with just about every color Sam had! Sam was so excited that he decided to begin doing it himself - layers of purple, orange, pink, red. He was impressed that he could make the sky so stunning without his favorite color!
'You don't need to feel blue with the many amazing colors of the rainbow!' Larz said. Sam couldn't agree more. He preferred the newfound option of being able to color the sky with any combination he pleased.
Just as the three were about to finish their creations, the dark clouds parted and the rain finally stopped. A tiny sun beam shone through the window and illuminated a spot under the table. 'Hey, there's the blue crayon!' said Larz. Sam reached down and picked it up and added a few final strokes of brilliant blue to his masterpiece. As he did, Zeph pointed out the window and before their very eyes, a bright, gorgeous rainbow appeared. As the three friends looked out on the glorious ribbon of color in the sky, Sam told Larz and Zeph that he was happy they had spent the rainy day coloring together, because he discovered that there's good to come out of every situation. Now, the entire rainbow is his favorite color!
