POWERS AT PLAY
Kelvin M. Knight
He hated it in there. He would rather be out here. So what if the rain was dripping through the trees. Rain was cold and refreshing. Rain made him feel alive. Being in there with them, them and their silly songs, their nonsensical stories, was living hell.
Why on earth he agreed to this team building weekend escaped him. Before it had even begun he needed time out to recharge his thoughts, power down his emotions.
Emotions which could easily spiral. Sitting down on one of the benches in the quadrangle, he looked heavenward. Stars shimmered through gaps in the clouds. They were strangely beautiful. Up there, everything was beautiful. Why were things so ugly down here?
Burying his head in his hands, he watched rain pouring off his hood like unconstrained tears. Tears he no longer shed. For her. For him. For any of them.
Only smiling worked now.
