Thank you, Rain dear. What would we ever do without you?
Finally, Rain got the water! Amazing!
A Few Days Later
Let's go home. There is not enough water for us anyways.
Oh no! Are you able to stand up straight? Come on. let us go home after collecting water.
Mom, I think I am falling sick. I feel feverish and light-headed. I think it is because I do not have water.
I am not sure but we will figure it out. Do not worry. I know you are sick but push through it.
But we do not have anymore fresh, clean water. What will we do?
Mom, look! There is Rain. Can we ask her for water?
Few Weeks Later
No, honey. She does not give water to people anymore. She keeps it all for herself.
Rain walks from to the river, which is five miles away, and back and holds buckets to get water. She is the main reason for plants, animals, and other people are healthy. Everyone distributes the water with one another, and whenever Rain comes back with buckets, smiles are placed on everyone's faces. They thank her with their entire hearts, so grateful for her help.
The Next Day
Honey, could you please give me some water? I am too old and I can barely walk. Please, I am suffering.
I have to endure so much pain in bringing clean water every single day and you old fools are not even thankful! Why would I ever do something for you? Suffer!
And do not bother me ever again! Leave!
As the days went on, water became less and less available. It was harder to keep on finding lots of clean water. Rain, however, kept her share of the water the same, even though the quantity had become less. People, of all ages, began to become sick. People are not as grateful, for she is not doing her duty correctly, which upset Rain very much.
Yes, our lives are in debt for the great actions that you took. How thankful we are.
Many weeks had past, and no one was appreciative towards Rain anymore because she only brought fresh water for herself. She was able to see children, adults, and seniors suffer while she lived on luxuriously.
Finally, Zeus, the king of the Greek gods who lived in Mount Olympus, came down to see why some many people were suffering. He realized that Rain was the main cause of everything. He decided to put her on a test, by disguising himself as a old man, to see whether she is giving to the helpless. Rain failed the test, and Zeus though it was time to teach Rain a lesson that she will always remember.
Suddenly, Zeus turns back into his true form to show Rain the mistake she made. His punishment or consequence for Rain's actions were to turn her into the clouds and water. This way, everyone could have clean water distributed to their homes, instead of walking five miles. Rain shall never forget the way she mistreated everyone. The whole village was bursting with happiness.
Thank you so much! The whole village is extremely greatful!
The clouds and rain helps water be distributed everywhere. If Rain had just been giving to others, she would not have to suffer. Being greedy was not the wisest choice Rain could have made. It might have helped her in the moment, but in the long run she will and is suffering.
What a mistake I made! I suppose this is the best punishment for my actions.
