Sending Out an SOS

Today’s Daily Prompt: You’re at the beach, lounging on your towel, when a glistening object at the water’s edge catches your eye. It’s a bottle — and yes, it contains a message. What does it say?

Forgive me for romanticizing everything, but I can’t help but imagine the possibilities that lurk before us.

As I open the bottle, I notice familiar handwriting. Not because I had received anything with his handwriting before, but had always imagined and wished for something from him. The message was simple, yet powerful: “I am here. He was right. Look behind you.”

I’m not sure how he managed to get that bottle into the water, let alone have it catch my eye out of everyone on this beach, but this time, I don’t question a thing. I look behind me, and there he is. He walks closer to me, smiling, and says “You’re exactly how He showed me.” With those words, I crumble, blissfully to the sand. He manages to catch me mid-fall. “Let’s start from the beginning – your beginning. I missed out on a lot, haven’t I?”
