Rain Delays

The rain was coming down so hard, that Madison thought she was going to drown. Or freeze to death. She pulled her arms tighter around her chest, trying to stay warm. Not that it helped any. She closed her eyes and looked up in to the sky, silently asking it to stop the rain. It didn't listen to her. The rain continued to drive right into her bones, like millions of needles. She lowered her looked down again and rubbed her stinging eyes with one hand. The only good thing about her situation was the fact that she never wore make up. She couldn't afford it. As lightening flashed across the sky, Madison began to laugh bitterly.
