The Message – 100 words

Frank stands in the watchtower waiting for the signal from the east. Waiting to relay the signal to the west. The signal hour is almost up. He was sure the message would come today. He was sure the message would come yesterday. Maybe it will come tomorrow.

No news is good news they say. Not knowing is worse thinks Frank. If the news is war then there are things to do. No more sitting around 23 hours a day, waiting. If the news is peace Frank can go home. See his family once again.

Maybe the message will come tomorrow.
