It was a moderately windy day in Frieda's town when a bit of fluff from a cattail released from the mother plant and was blown into a canal. "EEEEK" said Seed, since everyone knows seeds prefer to fall in dirt, not water.
Luckily a Momma duck and her ducklings were paddling by and Seed managed to grab onto one of the ducklings. Seed clung desperately to a baby duckling's fluffy feathers as it went for a ride with the duck family up and down the canal. It was finally able to let go in a park while the ducks were being fed lunch scraps by a lovely blonde girl with a limp. Seed hoped to attach to the lovely girl since she seemed so nice and it prayed for a favorable breeze carry itself the few feet to her. She looked like someone that apreciated nature and thus plants and stuff... but fate was not to bring them together quite so easily. Just then the wind kicked up and Seed was instead blown away, again over the water.
This time Seed blew onto the deck of a water taxi, where it was picked up on the cuff of a tourist's pants. At first Seed was pretty dissapointed and pined for the pretty blonde girl. The tourist was loud, kind of smelly, and seemed rather crude at times. However the tourist unknowingly took Seed to a museum, a stage play, a hash bar, and a strip club, which was pretty exciting and not something seeds usualy got the oportunity to do. Seed decided that maybe hanging out with a tourist was pretty cool, till the tourist went to a hole in the wall bar recomended by a taxi driver...whereupon the taxi driver's friends pummeled the hapless visitor for rudely mispronouncing a dutch word that came out sounding like "P*ssy". They stole his watch and his cash and tossed him sensless out into an alley next to the bar. Seed decided it would very much not like to hang out with tourists after all...at least unless it could find one who learned to pronounce local dialects better.
A stray cat making her rounds decided to utilize the insensate bit of warmth the alley provided and she curled up againsts the tourist's warm legs. Seed took the oportunity offered and transfer'd to the cat's fur in a safe spot right behind it's neck where the cat couldn't get at it. Unfortunately, Seed hadn't counted on getting stuck there. The fur was so matted from lack of brushing that it acted like velcro, trapping Seed in place.
The cat, and her passenger Seed, spent a bedraggled week together on her tour of favorite garbage cans, gardens, sunny decks and porches. Seed got tantalizing views of soft dirt in various gardens and flower pots. One of those sunny decks on Cat's rounds turned out to belong to the pretty blonde girl with the limp. Seed spotted the pretty blonde girl through the doors of the porch. It was a lovely deck full of well tended flowerpots and Seed just knew it would be happy there if only it could get off of Cat. But Seed was very stuck and could not get itself free. But fate was kind to seed, and one day while sunning herself on pretty blonde girl's deck. the cat was startled by the pretty blonde girl herself opening the balcony door on her way out to water her plants. Seed was dislodged as the cat brushed against a shrubbery on its way off the balcony, and the seed happily fell loose into the dirt of a flower pot where it remained unnoticed till Frieda's watering eventualy transformed the happy seed into a much apreciated cattail...and it lived happily ever after.
The end, till another windy day.
