The long dry season hit all regions. The sun's heat makes all the land dry, including a small lake at the edge of the forest. At that time all animals felt alarmed if one day they would run out of lake water and would not rain. They began to think of his death to them.
So little water that almost all aquatic animals gather and share a place. They are forced to struggle to widen their lives.
"Wow, at this rate we can die here," said the golden fish.
"Yes, but we can't find a way to bring water," said the cork fish.
"So what do we do now? Do we just wait for death without doing anything?" said catfish.
"We must ask the Rain God to immediately rain." replied the crab.
"But maybe the Rain God has forgotten us."
Then we can call together. "
"How?"
"We sing songs and dance together. We hope that God will send water to us."
Once agreed upon, they sang songs praising the Rain God and asked for water to be brought immediately.
When they were dancing from the sky, there was an eagle watching the movements of animals that were snaking. Eagles know it's a dry lake where food sources for carnivores like him. He immediately swooped in the direction the fish were dancing.
"Look! The messenger of god has come,"said the golden fish.
"Yes, we did it," said the catfish.
almost all fish believe that eagle is the messenger of the Rain God. Only crabs don't believe. but he can't say it to all his friends. He was afraid that it would cause new problems.
"Hey, what are you doing here?" asked the eagle with a sharp look. He counted the number of fish. "It could be enough for a few weeks," he thought.
"We are calling the God of Rain," answered the catfish.

"Congratulations, your calls have been heard. The rain god sent me to save you."
"But why don't you bring rain?" Asked the crab. "I do not believe!" he continued.
"Crab, don't you have the idea to invite the God of Rain? Now you don't even trust the messenger"
Almost all animals think crabs are not sincere and want to let them die in the near future.
"I was only tasked to bring you te a place full of fresh water." said the eagle
Hearing the explanation of the eagle almost all the fish scramble to immediately be taken to the eagle to that place.
"I will choose you one by one. The first one I will bring is a gold fish. I'm afraid that her fat body will dry up and die here."
Golden fish and their families immediately lined up to be moved. Crab can't hold them.
the eagle immediately holds the golden fish with its claws. He tried to look like he would never hurt. of ten golden fish he is able to carry four gold fish. The eagle immediately shot to the sky. While in the sky, I saw a wide rock. He immediately dropped the golden fish on the stone. The fish can't do anything. They fall and are then eaten by eagles. only the thorn left by the eagle on the stone.

The eagle immediately returns to the lake and asks the other golden fish to get ready.
"I'm coming too!" said the crab that was already suspicious of the eagle.
"I can't bring you if I invite a golden fish"
"You don't need to hold me. I'll depend on your neck,"
"Alright if you insist"
Four golden fish carried by eagles. When you are on a wide stone crab see a lot of thorns. His suspicion is even greater. He immediately tightened the claws on the eagle's neck. The severity of crab claws makes the eagle unable to breathe.
"Take off your claws"
I will not let go before you save us. "
"What do you mean?"
"Now return us to our lake."
The eagle immediately turns to the lake. Gold fish released to the lake.
"I will not let you go, before you fill this lake with lots of water," said the crab while still tightening his claws.
Finally the eagle was asked to bring a container to transport the water so that the lake was full again. After full of crabs keep their promises. Crabs release their claws and ask the eagle to never bother them.
The crabs returned together with all the animals in the lake, rejoicing. they thank you for crab services. They also apologized for having thought badly of him. They can return to life happily until the rainy season arrives. They no longer lack water.
