"According to Elizabeth Kubler-Ross, when we are dying or have suffered a catastrophic loss, we all move through five distinct stages of grief. We go into denial, because the loss is so unthinkable, we can't imagine it's true. We become angry with everyone - angry with survivors, angry with ourselves. Then we bargain. We offer everything we have. We offer up our souls in exchange for just one more day. When the bargaining has failed and the anger is too hard to maintain, we fall into depression, despair, until finally we have to accept that we have done everything we can. We let go. We let go and move into acceptance."
- Meredith Grey, Grey's Anatomy

@SaraIndixo Hi. Sorry but this is not about Grey's Anatomy. I just used a quote from GA for the summary.

@refresh thanks for the review! I wanted to but I run out of idea when I was writing this. Maybe I'll edit it sometime. :)

This is a nice start. It gives the reader what is/has happened, but you could have described what happened, where they were when she shared her umbrella with him. Good story 4/5 for this chapie
