 I was walking wearily back from work to the bus stop to go back home. With my coffee in one hand, and newspaper in the other, I strolled towards the bus stop; and suddenly a drop of water fell on my nose.

 I looked at the sky. The evil black clouds were luring in, covering everything like a blanket. It was much too dark to be seven in the evening. Then the black clouds attacked its helpless victimes.
 The clouds must have been absolutely furious, because it rained quiet hard. I shielded my face from the fury of the black heap. I was still quite far away from the bus stop so I ran. That was quite a foolish move because I fell instantly,   The rain put it's fangs into me, making me the next victim.
 Though I could not care too much about my clothes as they were already drenched, my phone was more important. This time I half-ran, half-walked, very cautiously, throught the flooded street. As I was doing so I noticed the cars all rushing by, as if they were in a race with the rain. Probably tired businessmen and women going home from work. The shopkeepers were closing down the shops and rushing along themselves. 
 I see a cab almost about to get out of my reach but I screamed as loud as I could. i first thought it would escape but instead it stopped at the end of the road. I ran, tripping alot, and sat in the vehicle, relieved.
 The cab driver asked me, "Where do you want to go?"
 I smiled and said, "Anywhere." I was just thankful to escape the wrath of the mighty black cloud. I was feeling cosy in that warm cab. I opened the window and smelled the smell I love, he earth when it was wet. "The rain is not that bad after all," I thought. Then I smiled at seeing the sun smiling upon us, as if it agreed.
