You Never Know
When I was a kid, we did a school project where we wrote messages and put them in bottles and threw them in the ocean. I think I was in fourth grade. You were supposed to put your name and the address of the school and ask whoever found it to write back. I added a note on mine that I hoped my bottle would go very far.
I had completely forgotten about all of this until today, when I was walking on the beach and saw an old bottle sticking out of the sand. I picked it up and opened it, and my fourth grade message was inside, with another message written below it. “Hello, Bobby,” it said. “Your bottle went very far indeed. We’re coming for you.”
It’s night now and I’m in my bed and I can’t sleep. I hear wet thumping noises downstairs and the house reeks of salt water. I wish I’d never sent that bottle.
