It's raining outside as her teacher talks about ancient humans, and how they lived in caves. She listens to the sound of rain on the roof, and imagines a time before people discovered caves, when they must have been half-ape, living in trees as the rain fell on them. After school she walks through the rain into the public park where her family has been secretly living since they lost their house.
