A rainy day some say is always the most beautiful. For our little pal Val, a 17 year old high school graduate. A rainy day brings him the most joy out of all the days.
Val is a simple kid, Latin, fluent in English and Spanish. Plus quite short for being Latin, clocking in at 5'8. Val had a special place he would go to. Called it his escape.
Where he dreamt of himself being what he wanted and who he wanted. No more money problems in his family, actual friends, complete power. He feels lonely almost all the time.
Staying up night late at night even grabbing bottles of hard liquor out of his dads personal stash. The kid didn't care, he had nothing much to live for anyway.
No one really liked him a whole lot.
So there he sat one day on top of a building, covered only by an umbrella while his legs leaned over the side of the building, the rain hitting hard on the umbrella as he thought of just..
jumping away. Maybe he will live again he would think, maybe just maybe he can live another life where he was someone else for a change.
