The rain was unexpected. Edmund heard it falling softly on the roof. He went out to tend the livestock with a light heart. He remembered hearing reports of terrible storms from travellers arriving from the south - wind and rain and hail as had never been seen before. His brow furrowed as he thought the storm may venture further north. For now he threw grain to the hens and opened the shelter door for the sheep to venture out into the small yard. He would keep them close to the cottage today, just in case. He continued about his chores, happy.
