Storms brewed in her eyes, clouds shifting, building to a crescendo, stirring the waters deep in her soul. She felt restless as lightning flashed through her forced smile and thunder rolled through her thoughts.
A reckoning coming, a crossroads decision in which she could take the next step toward her destiny, or stay frozen marking time until the clock ran down to its end.
She felt the first hard drops of rain crashing against her mind, slipping over to wash her eyes clean, and a ghost of a smile touched her lips. Too many times her storms had threatened her safety, ripped her from her moorings and set her adrift for days.
This time she met it head on. This time she would dance through the rain.
