'The Girl Made of Colors' by Allison Renner

Once upon a time there was a girl with colors on her skin. Pictures and patterns raced up and down her arms and legs.

Some people smiled at the vivid images, walked away from the encounter wondering what pictures might show up on their own skin if they had her confidence.

Others gave her a disgusted look, wondering why she would go out in public like that, thinking she should cover herself with garments that prevented her from being seen.

But the girl was oblivious to these reactions. She went through her days in a blissful blur of color, thinking only of how much she loved her skin and what she would draw the next day, after it all washed off in the bath.
