Lost in my confusing thoughts, I wandered along the ocean shore. A tiny flash of light caught my eye as the sun reflected off some glass. A little bottle was lodged in the sand and I stooped over to pick it up.
Rubbing the sand off, the glass was dark blue and I unscrewed the lid. Inside was a tiny rolled up note. It read, “for a time IN 2230.” Okay. I had no idea what to make of it. Turning the bottle over into my hand, a small key fell out-like one of those tiny diary keys.
I had no idea how to figure out what any of this meant. I rolled the message up and tucked it with the key back into the bottle. Throwing as hard as I could, I pitched it back into the ocean and walked on. It wasn’t meant for me and it’d wash back up for some other person to find.
Little did I know, I would see it again.
