Sara, a 5-year-old girl, was going to the park with her grandparents to feed ducks. But when they arrived there, something terrible had happened - there was no water in the pond. So, all the ducks were also gone. Sara's grandparents were shocked, and they didn't know what had happened, so they didn't have a good explanation for Sara.
"Sara, there are no ducks at the park today because the pond dried up. Unfortunately, we don't know what happened."
"No! No! No!" Sara cried. "It's not fair. I want my ducks!"
Then they looked around and found a man who looked like he was in his early 20s. He was sitting on the ground with his head down and he didn't seem to notice them at all.
"Excuse me," Sara's grandfather said. "Do you know what happened?"
The man lifted his head and they realized that he had been crying.
"I'm sorry," he said softly. "I saw the pond dry up and I couldn't do anything about it because I didn't have a hose."
Sara's grandfather patted him on the shoulder and told him it was going to be okay, but the man only cried harder.
"I'm sorry," he said again before getting up and walking away without saying another word.
Sara's grandfather turned back to her: "Don't worry, Sara, we'll go home and make you some hot chocolate with extra marshmallows to cheer you up."
Sara knew her grandfather was trying to cheer her up, but she still felt sad.
"Grandpa, I want my ducks. Let's go back to the park."
"But Sara, there's no water in the pond. There is no point in going back."
"Please, please, please!" Sara begged. "I just want my ducks."
Her grandfather sighed and looked at her with soft eyes. "Alright, Sara. We'll go back to the park."
The next day when they got to the park, they found out that somebody had put water in the pond! All of the ducks were back too!
Sara was so happy to see her ducks again, but she was even happier when she found out that somebody had put water in the pond.
"Duck! Duck!" she shouted, running to her grandparents. "I'm so happy we came back! I'm so happy there's water here!"
"Who put water in the pond?" Sara asked.
"We don't know, but we think it has something to do with the young man there. What do you think we should say to him?". The grandparents and Sara saw the same young man they met the day earlier.
Sara thought for a moment before saying, "I think we should tell him thank you."
"Thank you!" Sara said as she ran to the man and gave him a hug.
"It's my pleasure, Sara," he said as he hugged her back. "I'm glad I could help."
"Yeah, me too," Sara's grandfather agreed. "How did you do it?"
"I found a hose, but I didn't have any water to fill it with," the man explained. "So, I went to my house and filled up a bucket with water from the faucet."
"What an effort," Sara's grandfather said. "You know, if you ever need any help or if you want to talk about anything, we're here for you."
The man smiled and nodded his head.
"Thank you for helping the ducks!" Sara said.
"The ducks are lucky to have you!", the man waved at Sara and walked away.
