She is 11 and she is in a swimming class at 4 p.m. There is rain, and the grey clouds are not helping her any. She dreads these swimming classes because she is uncomfortable in a swimsuit. She thinks she feels this way because her classmates look very comfortable in theirs. She sits on the far side and wishes that no one will notice her lack of participation. She wishes it so hard that years have passed, and still no one's paying attention to her. She's always thanking the rain and grey clouds on that fateful swimming class day.
