Long, long ago there was a young woman who lived by the sea. In a quaint chalet she lived by herself, The waves kept her company. Sometimes they would roar quite loud, but other times they were gentle when kissing the shore.
She never grew tired of walking along the shore and watching the dazzling display of colors as the sun would set over the sea.
In the morning the sea would glisten like sapphires when the rising sun shined down upon it.
She had learned to enjoy her solitary life. Each day was usually the same but she liked it that way. She kept a journal, recording all her thoughts and writing down memories of the life she had left behind. Sometimes the memories would tug at her heart, but for the most part she had learned to be content. Then one day, what the tide brougbt in changed all that!
She was taking her usual evening stroll by the sea when something washed up on the shore, lying right at her feet.
It was a bottle witb a message inside. She didn’t know what to think. She sat down, sinking into the sand, and opened the bottle.
Pulling out the message she began to read.”Dear Annalise, I have no idea if you will ever receive this but I want you to know its safe to come home now., she died. Come home sweet Anna, to where you belong.” Your loving Aunt.
Annalise re-read the short note 3x, letting it sink in. She could go home. No more fear needed, it was safe to return home. She pondered the news as she gazed out on the turquoise blue sea.
