The Waves of ChangeFor seven days it had rained. Day and night, there was no relenting. The grey sky dampened the spirit of Donnchadh. He sat alone in the corner of his room searching his mind for the reason for the rain. He probed his memories of Congresss studies about Éireann. The planet had the more oceanic life than any other colony. Biologists still had no answer as to why this occurred. There was only one ocean, the Dáire, and it was only 1000 kilometers across. The water cycle had puzzled scientists. Unlike earth, the water appeared to stay put. It had never rained before.The menacing rain bombed the dry earth.
