The rain pounded down on the roof of the apartment building's top floor. Carrie was on her back on the bed, staring at the glow-in-the-dark stars above her on the ceiling. A ringtone sounded from the side of the bed on the nightstand, softly playing Aerosmith's "I Don't Wanna Miss A Thing." Carrie reached over and flipped it open, turning off the alarm and sitting up, wrapped in her blanket. She looked at the clock.

11:11, she thought to herself, trying to resist the urge to cry. She closed her eyes and made a wish to no one in particular, whispering the words to the empty air.

"I wish I could kiss you in the middle of the street on the rainiest day of the year." As she said the words she repeated every night before sleeping, the tears she had fought so hard to keep back welled up and spilled out of her cloudy greyish eyes.
