Lauren's heard raced within her chest as she ran down the dark streets lit by dim street lights. Rain clogged the spaces around her, drowning her in her sadness. It started first as a single drop, just like the single drop that had begun it's sluggish trail down her face. Then it too picked up speed till the dark gray clouds above wept and sobbed. Their cries thundering throughout the valley. Lauren stopped and wrapped her arms around herself. There was no where to hide out here where she could escape even nature. So instead of trying to hide she allowed it to wash over her. Soon her small, trembling frame dripped from the wet.
