The Meaning Of

During a discussion about the meaning of life with my friend, we somehow began writing this story. I would write an installment, and then she would, completely making it up as we went. This is the result. Basically, for 70 some years, my friend searches for the grand question and answer to the meaning of life. Finally, after all that time, we come in contact again.

I couldn't believe it. What was happening? I didn't know how, but somehow I felt as though this was all Carmen's fault. Were they kidnapped because someone knew we were going to talk to them? That we were searching for Carmen? Or maybe it was all just a coincidence. I didn't believe that though. Coincidences didn't exist. I believed that everything happened for a reason. I looked at Sam. She met my gaze. Without saying a word, we came to an understanding. People didn't kidnap elderly people for no reason. Silently, we left our food uneaten and climbed back into our car. We continued on our way to where we were going to meet Bianca and Emily. Perhaps we could find some clues. We couldn't think of anything else to do. Carmen had never been particularly close with anyone, and now that she basically cut ties with everyone, it was as though she had never existed at all.
