She walked out the building, looking up at the sky. 'I better hurry home before the rain starts,' she thought to herself, looking at the grey clouds.

She walked over to where she usually parked her bike. It wasn't there. She started to panic - 'Gone? But where? And by whom?' -and suddenly, she remembered. She had used public transportation that morning. 'Damn that laziness of mine,' she cursed to herself.

She started walking towardds the station as she looked through her purse. Where was the coins she had this morning? She looked back on her day - The lunch break. She had used it for a bit extra for lunch.

She took off her wet clothes and hanged them to dry. She wrapped a towel around her hair and put on a rope. She made herself a cup of hot cocoa, went to the living room, turned on the TV, and leaned back, enjoying her cocoa.
