Flash Fiction: Sky of Hearts

Mommy, why do we this, send all our heart balloons into the sky at the same time every year?

Little one, this is our tradition of finding soul mates: if two balloons meet and pop together, that means the two people have been chosen for each other by Father Sky and then they are to spend their lives together; just like I met your father.

But mommy, what if my balloon pops with another girl’s balloon, or if it pops along with multiple balloons, or if it pops alone in the air; what does that mean?
