I, Laela (pronounced Lay-La) Marthson, was soaking wet. My regularly silky brown hair was sodden with rain and it drooped in halfhearted curls aroung my dripping face. My shoes were soaked and I could feel the icy splash of rainwater around my feet every step I took. My chest ached and my heart pounded, for I had been running for what seemed like hours but had probably been only minutes. I blinked, trying to get rainwater out of my eyes and off of my lashes, but it was no use; the rain flew in to my eyes regardless of what I did. The sky shook with an ear-splitting crack of thunder, followed by a flash of lightning. The lightning was brief, quickly illuminating my surroundings before the sky went black once more. However, I still had enough time to see the thing the stopped me in my tracks. My body heaved for air as I waited for another flash of light to make sure that it wasn't an illusion. When the lightning came, I found that it had indeed been real and I was face to face with a very important choice. Before me stood a pinstriped tent. White and red in color like that of one belonging to a circus (which was ironic considering I was running away from home.) It was small but seemed like a cozy place, one that might be good shelter from the storm. It had a small truck next to it, but from my distance I couldn't make out if it said anything on it's side. Hesitently I took a step forward, then I stopped. 'Stupid,' I thought, 'what am I doing? I'm just going to waltz up to the tent, hope someone's inside and ask for shelter? Yeah...someone's going to help me.' I thought of what I looked like to others, wet, tired, muddy, real attractive for people who like that sort of thing, not most normal humans. Then a thought crossed my mind, if it was a circus then they would take me in, wouldn't they? I stood in place for five long, wet minutes before I made up my mind. Cautiously I began to walk towards the tent, trying to see if anyone was there through the sheets of rain. My foot made contact with a puddle and I fell down, covering myself in an unwelcome layer of mud. Flustered I stood up and continued towards the tent. Finally, after anouther round of five, painful minutes, I reached the tent. Unsure what to do, I stood there waiting for someone to find me. Fortunatley luck was on my side. Before to long the tent flap opened and a young man stepped out into the rain. Overcome by fatigue and surprise that someone was actually there, I did the "honorable" thing, and fainted at his feet.
