The thunder was almost constant, every crash echoing back from the far side of the valley until it was impossible to distinguish one from the next. Staccato flashes of lightning only served to illuminate the torrential cascade of rain that had turned the hillsides into waterfalls, and the valley bottom to a white-water river.
A lone figure stood beneath a rocky overhang as nature’s fury raged around her. Water streamed down her face, the droplets sliding around the curve of a triumphant smile.
This was nature at its most primal, savage, elemental level.
Just the way Helen Cutter liked it.
