From the Paper:

"As red eyes continued to overflow with salty tears, so did the clouds continue to pour forth a ceaseless torrent of rain upon the ground, smashing straight as stair rods onto the soil, making it little more than a reflection of how I felt: damaged. Staring hopelessly out a small window, smudge marks not quite marring the depressing sight of dark forbidding clouds, I felt empty and alone. In order to relieve myself of boredom I had pulled my little address book off the shelf and started to read it. It contained the numbers and addresses of all the places and friends I had left behind when I had moved. Suddenly I realized that I would not be able to see my dear friends for a long time, and so clutching the tiny book tightly in my hands, firmly holding it against my chest, I wept. Having just moved, I knew no one but my family, and so I let tears flow at the dismal prospect of having to sit indoors alone, without a friend close by."
