Introduce A Love Making Scene:
Rain can act as a prelude to a love making scene. The conservative heroine may not have even dreamt of a pre marital affair. But when the rain starts, the hero and the heroine get caught in some close by hut, if possible with a fireplace. With the sudden thunder and lightning, the heroine gets scared and clings to the body of the hero. Both of them get carried away after that moment.
