Snow Man continued hustling.
“Helloooo?!” Ronny screamed as loud as he could.
Snow Man continued his snow shooting. Ronny walked closer to him and tapped him on the leg. Snow Man jumped and looked down at him.
“Who are YOU?!”
“I’m…uh…Ronny! Who are YOU?”
Snow Man shook his head and stomped over several yards away to send more snow down below.
“Hey! Thanks for giving us the snow! We haven’t ever gotten snow ever!”
The giant paused and looked at the boy. “I came here last year.”
Ronny shook his head and giggled. “No you didn’t!”
“I don’t have time for this. I have to be in Philadelphia in the morning.” He continued to send snow down.
Ronny scrunched his face. “Phideliphia? Where’s that?”
Snow Man stopped. “Uhhhh…” he scratched his head. “Like, only 200 clouds that way,” and he pointed to the left in the distance.
“I don’t think so,” Ronny chuckled. “We’re in the Virgin Islands! No Phil…Philgeldia here!”
The giant stopped. “Philadelphia! It’s right over–”
“200 clouds that way is ocean!” Ronny giggled but stopped himself thinking maybe he shouldn’t. He started to chew his coat sleeve again.
Snow Man shook his head. He stared at the boy and poked his head under the clouds and looked in the direction he expected to see Philadelphia.
“Do you see it? All the ocean!” Ronny said, gingerly.
Snow Man lifted his head from the clouds and shook his head. “Ugh, not again!” He stomped past Ronny and walked in circles, playing back his journey in his head aloud. “I have to leave. I have to get out of here,” the giant announced. He plopped down on a cloud and contemplated a plan.
Ronny sat next to him. “You know, I got lost one time, too. When I was little, like five, I was at the mall and I saw this cool Star Wars game in the window and I went in the store and there was a Darth Vader statue,” he said and gestured with his arms to show how tall it was. “And oh my gosh, it was so big and I was like, ‘Wow! I’ve never seen anything like that!’ and…” he took a deep breath. “And then I turned to the door and my mom wasn’t there and I cried and the nice mall ranger took me and bought me a donut and we found my mommy.” He paused and gazed ahead, reliving the frightful event again in his head.
Ronny looked up at Snow Man who exchanged a blank stare. “You know what I mean?” the boy asked.
Snow Man covered his snowy face with his hands. “I need to get out of here!”
“No, don’t leave yet! I want more sn…” the boy’s eyes grew wide and he stopped mid-sentence from the sight of what approached them. Snow Man turned around and grunted.
The figure floated through the clouds towards them. “Ohhhhh will you look who it is!” she said when she arrived a few yards away.
Ronny’s jaw dropped. This thing was about the same size as Snow Man. She was just a glob of water and dripped into her cloud.
Snow Man dropped his head. “Go away.”
“I’m actually impressed how you even made it here! Did a gust of your own snow blow you this many thousands of clouds this way? ”
Snow Man looked at Ronny. “I’m just gonna go.”
“But…but…you don’t even know where you’re going!” Ronny turned to the rain creature. He named her “Rain” in his head. “What direction is…” he paused, concentrating to remember the name of the city. “Phigelephia?”
Rain cackled at him. “Oh, this is priceless.”
“Don’t bother,” Snow Man said to Ronny and started to walk away.
“Phidelphelia? No. Phidephlelia? Phil–”
Snow Man turned around. “Philadelphia.”
“Philadelphia! He needs to go to Phil-a-del-phi-a!” Ronny jumped to Snow Man and grabbed on to his arm.
“Well, are ya gonna tell him?” Ronny looked at her with wide eyes.
Rain stared down at the boy. “Where did you even come from?”
Ronny thought for a second. “Well, I climbed the snow all the way up, up, up to the clouds!”
Rain rolled her eyes and shook her head. “It’s always something up here. Oh, this is good,” she laughed. “I can’t wait to tell Hail later. He is going to really get a kick out of this. I mean, really? This far away?” She took a deep breath and sighed. “Well, thanks for the break; I didn’t feel like working this week anyway. You two carry on.” With a gust of wind, she started to float away on her cloud.
