Mrs. Duck counted her little ducklings again.  They were still nine.  She couldn't believe her eyes.  All ten ducklings were there a few minutes ago, as she counted them before they swam across the river.  She made sure she was right behind her ducklings as they swam across and she only looked away once as she heard a big splash behind her.  She looked back to see what it was and when she saw that it was a couple of boys splashing rocks in the water, she continued to swim keeping a keen eye on her little ones.

But now, one was missing.  It was the youngest of her ducklings and she was so worried.  What could have happened to him.  She looked up and down the river but she could see him nowhere. 

At that very moment the little duckling realized that he was lost.  He couldn't understand how this had happened since he had only gotten distracted for what seemed like a moment.  He had run into some playful fish and followed them for just a moment.  Now he could not see his mother or the other ducklings. 
It seems that the current had carried him far downstream and now as the little duckling climbed up on the river bank, he needed to find a way back to his family.   So he...

... tried to walk back from the way he came from. After walking for quite a while, he became very tired. So he took a short rest. He continued walking up the bank after the rest. At last, he reached the place where he thought his family were. But they were not there. He started to cry out for his mother.

Across the bank, Mother duck heard him and came crossing the river to get him. The little duckling was so relieved to find the family again that he started sobbing.
