It was raining for the fourth day in a row, and Roderick was sitting beneath a tree next to the he entrance of the front yard, half-way through a plump peach he'd snatched out of the cafeteria.

Something about the rain had always appealed to him.. Something about the consistent ambiance of the droplets hitting the ground made him feel at ease. No one else was in the yard, and it was rare that a car drove by in such a remote location, so it was just him and the steady drone of the rainstorm.

"Oh, for the love of - " a voice said angrily nearby. A dark-skinned girl with wild curly hair pulled back into a ponytail matched with an English accent was dragging along a suitcase. The rain soaked through her clothes as she desperately tried to find the entrance to the building. "Ohhhhh!" she cried, frustrated.

Then, in an almost cartoon-like fashion, a miniature grey cloud appeared just above her head. It proceeded to pour more rain on her.

"NOT HELPING!" she screeched at it. A miniature bolt of lightning zapped her in response, to which she only gritted her teeth and sat, defeated.

And just like that, frustrated screeching cut into the relative peace, and a girl marched through the front gates, a suitcase in tow.

There was a miniature rain cloud gathered just above her head, following her closely as she trudged down the courtyard pathway. In the midst of her angered crooning, a tiny bolt of lightning jumped out of the cloud and connected squarely with the top of her head.

Roderick took a sizeable bite out of his peach, craned his neck to get a better look at the newcomer from where he was slouched, and then called out, "I'd suggest an umbrella, but that seems doubly unsafe for you."

She squinted through the rain at him, curious at the boy sitting in the rain eating a peach. Although she wasn't one to judge as she was currently doing the same thing, minus the peach.

Not by choice, she thought. She wondered if she should go over and talk to him.

"Tell him to fuck off." As if by magic, a miniature figure appeared on her right shoulder in a cloud of red smoke. It seemed to be a small version of the girl herself, except with devil horns, a spiked tail, and a pitch fork.

"You can't respond with aggression!" Similarly, another miniature figure materialized on her left shoulder in a cloud of gold smoke; it was also a smaller version of the girl, but with a halo, wings, and a harp. "You'll never make friends that way!"

"Who said I wanted to make friends?" she mumbled.

"That's right, no friends, only enemies." The devil leaned into the crook of her neck. The girl sighed, then stood. The miniature devil figure latched onto her hair to steady herself. "The hell are you doing?"

The girl flicked the figure of her shoulder and it disappeared in a puff of red smoke before it could hit the ground. The angel smiled triumphantly before disappearing herself.

She walked a few paces over to the boy. "Do you go here? To this school, I mean."

He bit into something hard.

"Go here?" Roderick mumbled around a mouthful of fruit, gesturing towards the school. A second later, a large, penny-sized seed went sailing out of his mouth and into the dampened grass next to him. "Yeah, I go into it occasionally. I go everywhere. Rosebury, the lake.." What kind of question was that? He was squinting quizzically up at the girl as if she'd asked him what the answer to 1 + 1 was. ".. Why?"

She made a look of disgust at the peach pit, then slowly dragged her attention back to him. She fidgeted at his question, feeling stupid. "I only meant. . . I was just wondering if you were enrolled at Beata Academy. I'm from London, so I don't exactly know anyone here." By now the rain cloud above her head had dispersed, offering her some relief despite the regular rain still continuing. ". . .I was hoping maybe you could show me the way in, help me get out of this rain?"

There was a saying that people from London always had rain clouds following them around, and this girl was providing quite a literal example of that. Peculiar.

"Oh! Yeah, I'm enrolled. Why didn't you just ask?" He chuckled lightly. With a grunt of effort, Roderick pulled himself up onto his feet and tossed the gnawed peach core behind him. He rolled his shoulders and started along the mud-dappled pathway, giving no mind to the rain that immediately began pelting him as he left the cover of the tree's leaves.

"I did, I - " She shook her head. "Never mind." She thought him curious, but didn't comment on it. She caught up with him and matched his stride, moving a piece of hair that was plastered to her face from blocking her vision as she walked. "I'm Leah Bellamy. What about you?"

He didn't answer her question, focusing instead on swiping creeping raindrops away from his eyes. Feeling well didn't always go hand-in-hand with thinking straight, unfortunately. Roderick had been in high spirits all morning, but it was as if there was a selective filter somewhere between his ear and brain, only allowing certain words to be heard, and others discarded.

"People say April showers bring May flowers, but I'm seeing all rain and no flowers. April 'ought to let up, hey?" He smiled and combed his hair, now sopping wet, black tendrils, out of his face. It wasn't like he was a stranger to lots of rain, having lived in New Zealand for seventeen years, but wasn't America supposed to be sunny this time of year?
