Lightning crackled through the air. The first drops hit Darryl on the head just as he ducked under a shop awning.
And then it rained. It would have been the perfect downpour for putting out fires if there were any.
The wind almost made the rain go sideways. The people under the awning pressed up against the wall of the building, each secretly praying it would end as quickly as it started.
Darryl definitely didn’t want to be there too long. The lobster on display had been sitting out for too long and was starting to turn.
He peeked around the corner to see if he could make a run to another spot. The wind and rain stung his face. A sign showing a recent dinosaur movie flew by.
He quickly retreated back to the safety of the bodega. The lobster was going bad, but it was definitely better than being out there.
