The “Messenger” has to find a way to deliver. Unable to drive as a result of his alcoholism, he uses various modes of transportation to get around. This leads to frequent encounters with the strange and interesting people that populate buses and trains and drive taxis of the unlicensed variety. Everyday and every delivery is a struggle to avoid being found out by his colleagues. Not to mention the hangovers. But in the process he might just manage to impress one fellow courier in particular.
Messenger in a Bottle is an episodic fiction blog (more widely known as a web serial). This is not autobiographical, and any similarity between people, places, and things is purely coincidental.
