100 Word Song – Lucretia MacEvil

She sat on the floor, sweat dripping down her back. She hadn’t even known her aunt Lu existed until the lawyer called about the will.

This dingy little apartment looked like it might have been homey. She sunk into a reverie about what life would have been like in the French Quarter 40 years ago, over this old Jazz Club that had seen everything.

She was flipping through a photo album when she paused. Who was this happy family? The lawyer said she never married. Chills crawled up her spine as realization dawned: the pieces of Lu’s life toppled into place.

  • […] This week I had the honor of choosing the song for my good friend Lance’s 100 Word Song Meme over at My Blog Can Beat Up Your Blog and one of my partners at Raised on the Radio. I chose Lyle Lovett’s Her First Mistake because, well – there isn’t a Lyle Lovett song that doesn’t fit the soundtrack of my life. So I thought it was time he became part of the soundtrack of the, yet un-named, story of Lu and Cici. Cici discovered she had been living a life based on a lie told 20 years ago when she was summoned to New Orleans for a will reading. You can see how the story began here. […]ReplyCancel
