Bottle without message

January 2, 2016

She set a bottle free on the water’s surface, watched it float away. She had wanted to put a message inside it, something short, something directing the person who found it to reach out to her, but when it came time to put words to the paper, she had none to spare.

A boy down the river fished out the bottle, turned it over in his hands. He had long been looking for a message, something that would explain the world he saw around himself, but once again, there were no answers, just echoes from within the hollow glass.
