Rain

She stood beside the half-open window, staring outside as the gentle droplets fell into the misty lap of the winter-ground. The wind striking her face had a soft coolness in it, as the rain neutralized the harshness of the cold. Oh, how she loved this weather! She didn't like downpours -- too intense, too loud. But drizzle was perfect -- delicate and quiet, as someone would later tell her, just like she was herself. She had always enjoyed the rain, let her thoughts roam as the winds played with her hair; but this time, all she could think about was him. Her thoughts kept revolving around the meagre memories she had of him, the fragments of glimpses she had stolen, the golden smiles, the shine in his warm eyes... yes, the eyes, she could feel something melting inside her. Her breathing became slighlty deeper and she noticed that the window-pane had become foggy by the exhaled vapours. Without thinking, she lifted her finger and drew a heart, and traced the words, 'I love him'. She looked at what she had written, and a smile appeared out of nowhere on her lips. And suddenly, a strange panic gripped her heart. 'What have you written!' someone screamed inside, and with a violent movement of her hand she wiped the window-pane clean, and ran out of the room, her heart thumping wildly...

I'd prefer writing about a love that is reciprocated, rather than reluctant and hidden, for Valentine's day. ;)

Btw, this was inspired by the actual emotions of a real girl, so this is not just the sort of stuff which appears in digests alone.
