100 Word Song – Ho Hey

CiCi’s world began to spin. This didn’t fit. This wasn’t what she was told. She began to tear frantically through the photos – one after another, happy family; Mom, Dad, Baby Girl. Mom, Dad, Baby Girl. Folded in half at the end of the album was a letter. Worn, creased, discolored.

Lu, I love you. I will always love you. I am sorry.  You were never supposed to know. I thought we could be together forever. It was a foolish dream. Our paths crossed and my life changed forever. Please make sure Cecilia knows I will always love her.


This post was written for 100 word song. A meme where you have 7 days to write something, anything inspired by a specific song in 100 words or less. My story is a continuation of the post from last week. It’s fun to not be in control of where the story will go. I let the song take me where it shall. To read last weeks post, and the first installment of this story click here. I can’t thank Lance at My Blog Can Beat Up Your Blog enough, for pushing this writer to write. If you’d like a push too, all are warmly welcomed!

This weeks episode was based on the song “Ho Hey” by the Lumineers. Somewhat stuck in the 70’s I am often surprised by music in this decade that I find pleasing. Another good reason to play along.

Thank you my sweet. It has been a scary ride writing fiction on my blog…but I love it so much, I’m gonna keep on keeping on. Great. Now the Brady Bunch is singing in my head.

Hey Kate-It’s a totally fun way to write. It’s such a challenge to tell a whole story in 100 words!
