Rain

tap.



The rain falls.

tap.

And falls.

tap. tap. tap.

It is an incessant sound, unrelenting.

tap. tap. tap. tap. tap.

My curtains are drawn tightly, and the room is shrouded with black shadows, despite the approaching morning. Even after being awake for hours, my eyes have yet to adjust. I throw off my covers, and stand, squinting into the room. Maybe I will make some tea for myself....

In fact, the sun was beginning to rise. The sound of rain hitting the skylight is sharp and unyielding. I sigh, all pretenses of sleep floating away with it. The raining, the harsh tapping, has been going for hours.

tap. tap. tap tap tap.

I go into the kitchen, when I suddenly feel a sense of unease. The sun. It is rising.

tap. tap. tap. tap. tap.

I head back to the bedroom and open the window. The sky is blue behind my dark curtains....

tap tap tap tap tap tap.

I walk slowly towards the skylight.

tap. tap. tap. tap tap.

The skylight throws an odd looking shadow onto my carpet.

taptaptaptap.

Slowly.

tap.

It isn't raining.

tap. tap. tap. tap.tap.

Rain doesn't fall in groups of five.

apalmer3: This book seems pretty well thought out. However, it is plagued with grammar mistakes and misspellings. A bit of proofreading before releasing a chapter would make the reading experience better.

aanyaahmdd: I really enjoyed this story as I felt it was different. Many mafia stories often linger between showing the real darkness of that world or not. But this one did no disappoint and kept me interested.

Raychillgray : This book has a lot of potential and I really followed along well. Definitely wouldn’t put it in the thriller category though. There were moments that I could see an amazing plot structure while other times the plot seemed a little secondary to the story.

Rhiannon Clarke: Oh my gosh this book was so amazing! Their love was realistic the plot was enjoyable and just the way the book flowed was magnificent! The anticipation was real ladies and gents I gotta tell ya.
