It was a hot, humid day and they were exhausted. The air felt thick but the rain seemed determined to just threaten. They went inside a restaurant to get a drink and some cooling.

They were almost cold inside after the heat outside. “I can’t believe how long that took. And who gets married in the hottest part of the year?”

She laughed. “I think someone who has to plan around a school schedule.”

“Fair. But still,” he shrugged.

“Let’s get back to the car and go home. I think we’ve earned that bottle of wine.” She stood up just as there was a huge crash of thunder. She dropped her purse out of shock. They both turned to the window to see the skies had opened up and rain was pouring down.

She picked up her purse and sat back down. “Or maybe we should just order some food.” He laughed and picked up the menu.

  1. It’s nice to be in a cozy room when there is such a downpour outside the window. Especially with a loved one. And you can also eat here.
