OriginEdit

Frank Hayostek was a WWII veteran who gained the media’s attention for throwing overboard a message in a bottle. This traveled from New York harbor for eight months until it reached Breda O’Sullivan, an 18 year old in Ireland. They quickly became friends and wrote many letters back and forth over the years. When he traveled to finally meet her, the media followed his every move and tried to force some romance. The attempt failed and Hayostek returned to the United States by himself two weeks later.

EffectsEdit

The bottle fosters newfound friendship between the two strangers who activate the bottle. Their friendship will quickly grow as they get to know each other either in person or by mail. However, this relationship is vulnerable to others’ interference and can be easily stopped.
