She needed air and answers. Remembering an old drugstore/soda fountain downstairs, she grabbed the keys and tested the creaky stairs. The Louisiana afternoon slammed into her. She breathed the humid air deep into her lungs to acclimate. Two doors down she stepped into a store frozen in time. The bell on the door tinkled; dust swirled and sparkled in the sun’s rays that had forced themselves through the holes in the awning. A rumbling, kind voice said, “How can I help you today ma’am?” She raised her head to respond, and watched his face transform. He was seeing a ghost.
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 will. To read were the story of CiCi started 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 week’s song is “Sweethearts” by Camper Van Beethoven. I really encourage you to play. It is so much fun once you get started!

I love seeing how your story is unfolding according to the music backdrop. And cannot wait to read more now!! 🙂
Thank you so much Janine! This is definitely a post I do for the love of it!
“The Louisiana afternoon slammed into her.” – LOVE it!
Thank you so much Tracy! 100 words is way less than you think.
So many great lines in this piece and you paint such a vivid picture with your words. That last line is excellent and I’m intrigued. Can’t wait to see where you take us next.
Thank you Linda! I am seriously considering using this as a storyboard to write a “real” book. We’ll see!
Awesome. So vivid. And wow, I haven’t listened to Camper Van Beethoven in YEARS. I am having a total flashback right now. Good stuff…
Thank you Stephanie! I never listened to them, that’s why I love this meme! It exposes me, and forces me to listen to, music I never would have heard!
Love watching this journey as it unfolds! Although I secretly wish you could write more than 100 words! Keep up the good work.
Thank’s Miss! I secretly wish that too, and kind of secretly am 🙂
