Only one week until the release of It Rained All Night. I’m excited, are you excited?
In my story, Henrik needs to see Mikko at once, but they live 1500 kilometers apart (that’s 932 miles for you Americans) so he talks to his dad about using the family’s private plane to go and see him. It’s an unusual thing for Henrik, so unusual his father doesn’t even question why he’s calling in the middle of the night.
Would you buy your own plane if you were a gazillionaire?
“And the sweatpants you wore when you arrived are extremely ratty for a gazillionaire.”
“They’re comfy! They’re my favorite pair.”
“They’re a hundred years old.”
I chuckle. “Nah. Only ten.”
“I bet they’re not even a fancy brand.”
“Let me tell you a little gazillionaire secret; branded sweatpants are just regular sweatpants but ridiculously more expensive.”Quote from It Rained All Night
Today’s song doesn’t have rain in the title, but it rains in the actual song, so it qualifies. Also Jim Morrisson 😀
Riders on the storm
Into this house, we’re born
Into this world, we’re thrown
Like a dog without a bone
More to come tomorrow, don’t forget to come back.
Can a chance meeting in the rain change someone’s life?
Meeting someone who can make him stop going is an eye-opener for Henrik. The man, Mikko, is his complete opposite, a steady rock in the wild rainstorm that is Henrik’s life, but the connection between them is both unexpected and instantaneous. Their encounter only lasts a few minutes, but before they part, they exchange phone numbers.
They live far away from each other, but soon they text and call daily, until Mikko is Henrik’s dearest friend and most trusted person. But a late-night question on the phone has Henrik re-evaluating his feelings. It’s impossible to love someone you’ve only met in person once…right?
Is the connection Henrik and Mikko forged long distance enough to sustain them when they meet again? And will their love be strong enough to give them the happily ever after they deserve?
