Write a story which involves a mistake in the sending or receiving of a message.

David felt his past intertwining with the present, as the city around him transformed into a tapestry of memories. Time was fleeting, and the sun was painting the sky in shades of yearning. This was a second chance, as if the cosmos had conspired to bring the brothers back to where the roots of their kinship had been sown.
