Night. The roof. A teenage girl is standing on the very edge, holding on to the fence, frozen in thoughtfulness. She stood there for a very long time and finally made a decision, she lifted one leg to the lower crossbar of the fence.
Suddenly she heard a sharp male voice. "Stop!"
Startled, the girl looked around, ready to be outraged. Only she has the right to decide what to do with her own life.
There was a man at the entrance to the roof, his face was covered in shadow.
"I'm not going to let you do what you want to do here."
"Why is that?"
"This is my roof, if you want to do such a stupid thing, you'll have to find another one."
"And what am I allowed to do on YOUR roof?" She asked with a mockery.
"Relax..." He seemed to grin.
He raised his head to the sky, she did the same... It started to rain and the girl immediately forgot about her intention, calming down and, it seems, understanding what the stranger was talking about.

A few days later. The apartment of the guy. He had no clothes on, except pants and his hair was wet.He was talking to a woman with a short blond hair in a dark blue business suit.
"You were on the roof again?" She threw him a towel. "Look, you'll get sick."
The guy did not answer, drying his hair. Somebody came to the door and he went to open it. It was the girl. She walked in silently, he closed the door behind her without a word. The girl went straight to the roof.
"Who is this?" The woman asked him, putting food in the fridge.
"I do not know." The guy shrugged and continued to wipe himself.
"Do you at least know her name?"
"No, she does not say, I do not ask questions."
"Does she also goes to the roof?"
The guy nodded. The woman only shook her head. He smiled imperceptibly.
"Do not let her catch a cold." She said seriously before leaving, then immediately sighed, realizing that it was usless.
