The night was dark and stormy, with a downpour of rain pouring down upon the earth. The wind was howling, and the trees were bent over as if they were trying to escape the torrent of rain. A lone traveler, drenched and shivering, stumbled upon an old abandoned castle.

Once inside, he was met with a deluge of water pouring from the roof, drenching him even further.
