Melina is a lonely girl who loved the rain. On cloudy days she liked to go on walks in the forest together with her father. She would lie down under her favorite tree, listening to the raindrops falling and smelling the wet grass.

Until one day she heard something from the top of the plane tree! It was the scary rain monster! The creature from the stories and fairytales which were being told by the villagers. It really did exist! But, just a moment...

It wasn’t large like a rock, but small and furry. It wasn’t growling in a loud voice, but it spoke normally. It wasn’t angry and wild... It seemed sad, because like Melina, it was also lonely.

A story on acceptance and friendship. Sometimes things aren’t always how they seem. You just need to close your eyes and listen...
