True Story – Chapter Eleven

Rayne was getting ready for her first tour.

As she packed her suitcase and wrapped her favorite orange scarf around her neck, she thought back to the story her adopted parents had told her about how they met.

She thought about her father, and how he could have been the mythical man and her mother looking through that battered screen door waiting for him to arrive.

She thought about the stained glass in the church where she was born, and the little bird that she had saved and let fly away to find its own mother.

She was moving on to another life and hoped that this one would be filled with the love that her mother was never able to give her.

With forgiveness in her heart, she smiled, picked up her suitcase, and walked out the front door, as the rain started to fall.


Happy For You – Chapter Ten

Rayne was angry that her father never wanted her.

She searched the orphanage for clues about him.

When she finally found him, he was married and had new children and a different life.

There was no room for Rayne.

She felt abandoned and stormed out of his life forever.




Love Me Again – Chapter Nine

After meeting with the nuns from the orphanage, Rayne now understood where she came from.

The nuns told her about the night a beautiful young woman burst through the door pregnant, wet from the rain, and very ill,

who eventually died after giving birth to a little girl who sang.

Rayne knew deep in her heart that she was the little girl that was born that rainy night.

They told her how her mother ran away from a loveless marriage in an attempt to give her daughter a better life.




You Say I Love A Rainy Day – Chapter Eight

As she walked closer to the church, memories flooded her mind.

Memories of another time when she was just a little girl.

She asked herself: “Why would I remember this place? I have never been to this city before.”

She looked to the sky and even the clouds looked familiar.

She walked up the stony stairs and looked into the stained glass windows to a familiar sight.

The colors through the glass made her feel like singing. She didn’t know why but soon she would find out.





Long Pauses – Chapter Seven

Just a little peace and quiet was all she was looking for.

She hoped to get a break soon from her grueling schedule.

Performances, interviews, recording sessions, it was all about the music.

Rayne was taking the world by storm with her incredible voice.

She loved performing but was growing tired of the endless travelling and work.

She wanted to get away from it all and go back to her quiet life.

There were endless streams of paparazzi taking her picture day and night and no matter how hard she tried, she couldn’t escape it.

Her life had changed forever but inside she still felt like that tiny baby bird with a broken wing.
