there was a time whne he was afraid of rain.
his mother knew it was an irrational fear, but she tried to protect him from the drops.
when he was older, he'd laugh at this childhood malady.
when did it start?
he couldn't remember. his mother didn't recall.
janet liked him, but something was holding her back.
maybe at the farmers market. maybe there she could finally talk to him.
maybe one day they'd be together.
it was harder than she thought.
she was afraid of rain.
just like he was, but she was real about it.
not in childhood, but now.
they could run through summer showers or oicnic in the sprinkles.
yet, they would be in love, deeply, one day.
