Bells ring over the door of a diner and people rush inside. Some crying because their skin is melting off from the rain. Others are doing their best to wipe away the water before it harms them more.
Sally looks around and finds two of her friends, Carrie and Kelly. But Susan and Chelsea are still missing. She hurries to the window, watching as some of the people fall, their skin melted, their faces missing, and their lives gone.
Sally hits the window, yelling for those outside to run. She sees a flash of red hair and spots Chelsea covering her face with blood seeping through her boney fingers. Behind her, Susan has already succumbed to her injuries.
Sally shakes her head, watching Chelsea collapse next to Susan. She bangs on the window, crying.
Behind her, she hears a commotion and turns to see people panicking. Carrie and Kelly are holding hands, trying to shrink into the corner where they are hiding. A fight breaks out and Sally moves away just as two men tumble out of the window.
The wind picks up and pushes the rain into the diner. Thunder pounds in the sky and lightning slams into the ground in the town square.
Sally tries to push out of the way, but the others won’t budge. She can feel the rain eating at her clothes and skin. A hand snakes between the people and snatch her wrist, pulling her away from the broken window.
Sally looks through her hair as clumps of her black hair falls off. She smiles, or so she thinks, her lips smearing down her thinning cheeks. The rainwater clings to her. Carrie screams and let’s go of Sally. Sally sees a clump of her wrist fall away and land in Carrie’s hand.
Carrie drops the bloody mess and she and Kelly back away from Sally. Sally tries to talk to them, call to them, but the water slips into her mouth. She can feel the rain eat away at her tongue, throat, and vocal cords.
Sally’s knees buckle and she falls, blood gurgling in what is left of her throat.
Carrie and Kelly push their way out of the dying people, only to be pushed outside into the rain through the back door of the diner. They and those pushed outside with them, scream and fall in a puddle of rainwater and their blood.
The storm passes after an hour. The streets are full of water, ripped tents, broken items, and bodies. The storm rolls on, heading towards the town just on the other side of the mountains.
