Usually she is more fond of rain. She loves the sound of it falling. She loves the feeling of it hitting her skin. She loves the smell of the wet earth after it's stops. She loves the birds slowly taking up their song again. She loves walking across the wet grass or around a town with no umbrella. She usually loves it.
But today is a bit different.
Today rain reminds her of tears. Tears so raw, so fresh, so near that it hurts to watch the sky cry. It's too soon after so many tears fell from her own eyes; from the eyes of those she loves.
The whole world seems to be mourning today. One month.
