In the fluffy white clouds, up in the atmosphere, there once was a water molecule named Drip-drop. Drip-drop has been with other molecules for as long as he could remember. They are happily contented with just lying on their backs, soaking up the warm sunlight.
Sometimes Drip-drop would sigh and hope for an adventure to come his way. “I wish there’s something else to do here,” he sometimes muttered to himself. Nothing seems to bother their simple and comfortable lives up there in the heavens until one day.

“They’re going to be fine. It’s just evaporation. Look, they can fly now,” said Droplet and pointed to the water molecules that became air
