I'm at home in my lake. In a stage of collection. Here, I have friends and family that I never want to leave. My life as a waterdrop is pretty much perfect. I hope it's like this forever! I stay in the lake, and I couldn't be happier.
Noo! My friends and family betrayed me! Now, they're forcing me to stay in the lake. I must leave! But how? I feel myself being pulled down. Thank goodness for gravity! I'm becoming groundwater! Gravity is pulling me down and I'll be becoming groundwater!
I'm in the ground, now. Gravity has pulled me into the ground. Now I'm groundwater, water underground, that's slowly moving. I'm a little scared, but it's better than back home at the lake. I felt lonely, until I made friends with a water droplet I met down here. It made things much less lonely. We stay here for a while until we start to move. We're filtering through as discharge. I look at my friend and it says we're going to a river. Yay! I've always wanted to see a river.
Here is an example of collection. Where water collects. Now, I notice it's starting to feel warmer. I've been in the river for a few hours, and I have a feeling I'm going to start evaporating. It's getting warmer and warmer and now it's hot. I look to my friend, who is also freaking out. I can't evaporate and go to the clouds! Now it's happening. My friend and I are evaporating!
Here we are, in the sky. It's nicer than I thought up here. It's colder up here, and I feel myself condensing and turning back to a water droplet. Wow! I'm a cloud! I look to my friend and smile. I like it up here. Sadly, it's not for long. I still need my revenge on my so-called "friends and family" I feel myself falling. I'm going to the ocean! The ocean is closer to the lake. I look at my friend. They're falling with me! I'm going down in precipitation.
Wow! I'm in the ocean now. A huge place of collection. My friend reveals they always wanted to be in the ocean. It's nice here, but I know I need to go to the lake. I must get revenge. But, I feel warmer now. I feel myself evaporating. Not again! I'll be so far away from the ocean! I look at my friend. They're not evaporating. We say our sad goodbyes as I head to the skies.
