BOTTLES by P.S. Joshi
Grandma Fig collected frosted bottles of all shapes and sizes. Before dying, she asked for her granddaughter, Amaseena.
“Amaseena,” she whispered, “don’t take lids off the bottles. If there’s a serious drought, you can remove the lid of the large blue bottle.
Since then, Amaseena had been afraid of the bottles. The contents were murky, but at night eyes seemed to be peering out, except for the large, mysterious blue bottle.
A year came when there was a great drought. Amaseena took courage and got down the blue bottle. She carefully removed the lid, and it rained for one month.
