"The search for a scapegoat is the easiest of all hunting expeditions" – Dwight D. Eisenhower

I pulled my shawl tighter around my shoulders and smoothed down my wig as its strands were scattered because of the strong winds outside.

"Shay," I heard my name and automatically turned around, stuffing my hands in the pocket of the black hoodie I was wearing.

Rain, as usual, looked completely unfazed by the crazy winds she had just faced. Her plaid skirt was neatly in place, as was every strand of the shiny red bob on her head; she was wearing knee-length socks and a white silk blouse.

She looked like the perfect school girl.

I smiled. "Hey"

Rain smiled and hooked her arm through mine. I sighed and glanced at her with a smile, loving the familiar feel of her next to me. I had missed the company of Angel and Rain more than I knew.

Together, we walked down the hallway towards her next class.

She laughed softly, shaking her head with a smile.

Naturally, that only caused my cheeks to flush a deeper shade of red.

"Shut up" I muttered, which only earned me a chuckle from her.

We were quiet as I walked her to her next class, Rain smiling quietly to herself but I was thinking deeply about what she had just said.
