This is the Story:
Dry. Once the rains stopped, it was as if there would never again be water. She arrived on the wind, dancing as only she could. She whirled and leapt; each step, a drumbeat of desperation. Still there was no rain. She gritted her teeth, refusing to ask for help. He came regardless. Relentless. Determined. Without so much as a glance in her direction, he spoke the Words and the clouds formed. The first droplets fell as they departed. Together. Separate. Elemental.
