Case No: 187, Portman Natalie
It was raining bucket loads as Ms Portman stared through the glass panel in the library door, her flatmate Claire had offered to give her a lift home due to the obscene weather outside. However it was twenty minutes since Claire had gone to fetch her car from the car park. It was almost pitch lack outside, Natalie had been at the library all day as she had a lot of work to catch up on after taking time out from her studies to film Attack of the Clones.
Slowly she opened the heavy door and stepped out onto the step just under the cover of the awning above the doorway. The sound of the driving rain was almost deafening as it beat the steps that lay in front of her. She was about to step out into the storm when she had remembered she had paid one hundred and fifty dollars for her haircut. However it wasn’t a weekly celebrity indulgence she had had her hair cut especially for her end of year university ball the following day. To prevent the hard rain ruining it she removed her coat and held it gently over her head. She then darted out into the storm beginning the seemingly simple journey back to her apartment.
Natalie had been walking across campus for a few minutes when she stopped for a moment. She turned round looking down the long footpath she had just navigated but the wind and rain made impossible to see more than a few yards from her face. As she turned back around a large clap of thunder made her jump so vigorously that her black coat fell from her hands and onto the wet floor she looked down at her now soaked coat. A flash of lighting then startled her once more and without even picking up her coat Ms Portman began to continue her journey but at a slightly increased pace.
