Since Marlin was so curious, he decided to walk up to the gate. But when he got too close and put his hand on it, another water droplet came up from the ground and said,
"You sir, had just evaporated, how does it feel?"
"What are you talking about?" Marlin asked very confused.
"Never mind that, why do you dare to cross the gate?" The guy muttered.
"I just got here, I don't know anything about this place."
"Oh... you don't, okay well, let's make this quick. In 1 minute, you are going to precipitate down to a lake."
"Um... okay." Marlin said confused.
"That means you are going to fall down in
the shape you are in now, or many others."
"Sure..." Marlin said still very confused.
"And to precipitate means you are going to gain
so much weight that you are going just drop
somewhere," The Guy Said, "that is all."
One Minute Later!
Marlin began to fall. He was not happy because he had already fell from the ostrich.But he was also happy because, he saw the lake coming up to him really fast.
Once Marlin hit the lake, he saw a moose coming down to take a drink right next to him. With the force of the gravity from the fall he was still moving, and he was moving right in the direction of the moose. He knew he was going to get slurped up and peed out again so the only thing he could say was: "not again!"
So that process went over again and he ended up in the same area as last time. Except, this time, Marlin got peed out and then went and infiltrated the ground instead.
But as soon as Marlin dropped down and infiltrated the groundwater flow, he started to move extremely fast. He then realized he was going down a runoff. There was multiple ways to go with big signs saying which way to go. Marlin being Marlin decided to go the ocean because his family told of treasures to good to be true belong there.... and his grandma lives there. Marlin goes up the the door and knocks. Bang! Bang! Baaaaaaaang! She Didn't Answer.
He was just about to knock on the door again when he started to rise up again. He felt the burning too. But, time passed and he got to the clouds again. Marlin realized that he was evaporating once again. Once he got up there, he saw the guy who sent him down to the lake.
Marlin went to talk to the guy and he asked Marlin how he got there again. Marlin told him about the runoff and everything, the other guy forced Marlin to precipitate down to the ocean and to stay there for 600 years. So he did that and Marlin was forced to grow old.
So, over the course of those 600 years, Marlin had gotten a beard and was starting to evaporate to the clouds for his final stages of being a water droplet. While he was rising, he didn't feel any pain from the burning. Once he got there, Marlin looked for the guy who had sent him down and saw that there was a new guy. So, being the only person to talk to, Marlin went to go talk to the guy to realize that is was his old friend Lynx. So they had their discussions about their beards and whatnot until Lynx broke the news.
"I believe your time is near "
"Oh...I know that, I've realized that as I grow old." Marlin calmly replied.
"I shall send you down to a river to stay there for 12 hours, and then infiltrate to the groundwater flow where you will stay for the end." Lynx said in his old water droplet voice.
Marlin was happy. He felt himself dropping so he said "thank you!" to Lynx. So as soon as he said that, he dropped, and he felt that hard plop on the river. He was super tired because he was old so he slept in the river until it was the last minute. He woke just in time to see himself start to infiltrate the groundwater flow. Once he was down, he found a resting place and started to go to sleep.
