Back on my familiar bed, I tell my friends about all the adventures I had. I told them about going into the ground, then a lake, then an animal, then up into the clouds, and lastly, back home. We were all so excited to see each other again that we didn't notice ourselves slowly becoming smaller and less icy. I was the first to notice. "NO! NOT AGAIN!" I yelled out. I didn't want to leave again! I couldn't do anything to stay. I ended up flowing into a river. At least I had my friends with me that time.
In the river, there is a strong current that pulls us forward. We have no choice but to follow it. We talk some more, and come to the conclusion that we are now in the runoff stage, and will be collected into an ocean or a lake. We keep going for what seems like hours. We all miss home. I want to go back there soon.
The river ended up leading us into an ocean. It's not as scary as it would have been before, now that I'm getting used to moving around so much. I'm actually starting to enjoy the process, because I know that I will almost always be able to visit home. We spend some time in the ocean, exploring things, until we start to evaporate. I fell the familiar warm sensation as the heat energy from the sun makes us gas. We go higher and higher up into the sky.
As we get higher, I once again feel colder and transform into water again. My friends are new to all of this so I have to assure them that it is all a part of the process. They ask me when we'll get home, and I tell them I don't know. After becoming a cloud and having a good night's sleep, we grow heavier, and by night time, we fall as snow onto a glacier, just as I had before.
Now I'm home again, enjoying dinner with my family. I tell them about my adventure through the water cycle. Thankfully, I don't start melting again like I did last time. I told them that the water cycle isn't as scary once you get used to it, and that it actually becomes fun.
When I go back to school, our teacher tells us to make a comic strip about an adventure a waterdrop might have while going through the water cycle. She said to make it from the waterdrop's point of view. I know exactly what I'm going to write about. And it is what you are reading right now.
