A Stormy Day, A Stormy Life

Rain pounds away and the thunder pounds louder still.
-click-
I sit on a an old wooden chair staring out the window in an empty room.
-click-
I cringe. I yearn for the storm to cease. The walls are pulsating and it's getting harder to breath.
-click-
Three. Calm down, I think to myself. How many were there? Eight? I hope I find what I'm looking for before I reach eight.
-click-
Perhaps not. I suppose that such luck would be expected. Maybe this time will be different. Maybe--
-bang-
Freedom.
