Have you ever had one of those days when it seemed liked nothing was going your way? That's exactly how my day was going. First, I woke up this morning to find that there was a leak in my bedroom ceiling that was leaking cold rain water all over my face. Secondly, at my job at the hospital, a patient threw their lunch all over my uniform just because they didn't have their green jello. And last, but not least, my car broke down in the middle of traffic...Yeah, not the best day I've ever had.

Why is a young woman, such as yourself, sitting outside on a night like this?” “I-I'm fine. I like the night air. It smells better out here than in there.” I replied with a smile. He replied with his own smile but it didn't seem to reach his eyes.
“Are you waiting for someone?”
