Moral of the story:

“Home is a shelter from storms - all sorts of storms.” - William J. Bennett

00:00 - 01:06: The girl was sitting on the bench while the weather was rainy, thinking about her future. She wanted to find the best place for her, and then the music started playing. Girl tried to recognize where do the sounds come, but nothing was around her except a strange thing on the floor. She looked at it and found the instructions. That mechanism was a teleport machine, that can get you anywhere you want. She thought about the best place she could imagine, and pressed the button nervously.

01:07 - 02:05: She wasn't anywhere in another world. She was right next to the bench she was sitting before. Girl thought that someone did a little trolling and decided to press the button last time, thinking about the autumn forest...

02:06 - 03:04: Well, the machine worked. She was in the forest full of orange and yellow leaves falling from the sky. Girl wanted to be happy, but she felt like something is missing, so she thought autumn is not her piece of cake, so tried once again...

03:05 - 04:04: Girl really liked nature, so she thought about river and birds. Well, she touched the water, and it was cold. She enjoyed birds' songs firstly. but after some time she found their melodies annoying. Maybe summer beach would be a better place...

05:03 - 06:01: The was at the graveyard. Well, she felt really uncomfortable and didn't like this place, and then heard some voices. She tapped the button without thinking about the place, just to go away from there...

06:02 - 06:31: She was at an empty world, where she realized the wanted to teleport back home. Forest, river, beach were good places, but she wanted exactly back on the bench. She tapped the button with those thoughts and...

06:31 - 07:08: Girl is home. She is happy. She doesn't need anything more. Travelling was a perfect experience for her to get the point of it.

Update: Remade some transitions and graveyard part, and if you see some samples break at the end of them it is most likely a rendering problem, my PC is not that good and I idk how to fix it
