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 is brilliant! I love this! It combines music and writing and imagination and creativity and holy crap this is awesome. *ahem* composing myself now. You do the coolest things on your blog. I’m going to skip over to Lance’s and check this out, but I’ll probably be too chicken to try. But you rock!
I love you, you’re so good for my ego ❤
Beautiful mama, I nominated you for an award. http://taoofpoop.blogspot.com/2013/04/beautiful-mama.html
I always hope that I have some eccentric rich relative hiding in the woodwork somewhere who leaves me a cool million or two. 😉
Nice storyline! Now I’m all intrigued about Aunt Lu’s hidden past.
Thank you Renee! I’ve been wanting to delve into fiction….this one really spoke to me. We’ll see if I can keep it up!
I’m intrigued too. Great setting. Old New Orleans, the jazz club and the missing pieces about Aunt Lu. Was she a jazz singer? A musician? Can’t wait to read more!
