I hold my umbrella tentatively, perhaps even with a touch of disdain, for I certainly don't wish to use it on such a glamorous night as tonight.
Of course, I had taken the path of caution and purchased this confection of a thing when I chose my gown – for my day-to-day umbrella just would not do – but I would look so much more elegant if I had no need to carry it!
I open the French doors, bracing myself to step out into the night, and look up to see thunderclouds as black as the lace of my gown. I wonder if I might be lucky, if they could melt away into the sky, just for tonight, or, if not that, if they might hold back their fury for just a few hours.
So, do you think it's going to rain?
