100 Word Song – Fall at Your Feet

5 comments

This week I am continuing the story of Lu and Cici 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’m feeling pretty cool, because I got to choose the song, “Fall at Your Feet” by Crowded House. I am amazed at how effortlessly this story flows with only a song to push it along.  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.

This is the third chapter in which we begin seeing things from Lu’s point of view over 20 years ago. When we left them Lu had raced out of the door after Jimmy tried to get to know her better.

“Hey, I don’t know what just happened there.” Perplexed didn’t even begin to describe his feelings.

Her eyes were dark with pain, “It’s just – I came here to move on.”

Leaning against the brick wall he stared back, “OK. That doesn’t mean you can’t make a friend does it?”

“No.” Something changed, she turned away from him.

“Look, I’m here. Right now, I don’t believe in chance. Maybe we met for a reason? Maybe I can be here if you need me?”

The first drops of rain fell just in time to hide that loan tear sliding down her cheek.

  1. First, THANKS for the song pick. As soon as I saw it go up I did a little happy dance!
    Enjoying reading along as you develop this story. You have a ton of room to let us get to know them. It should be a fun ride!

  2. Great song choice Jen. I love Crowded House. That’s so true that the story just flows with the song prompt to move it along and each week the songs have fit perfectly into my story as they have for yours. That last line is gorgeous. I feel that apprehension with her; the fear of going back to a bad place when she’s ready to move on.
