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. This week the song is (Just Like) Starting Over by John Lennon. 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 fourth chapter in which we begin seeing things from Lu’s point of view over 20 years ago. When we left them Lu had just revealed that she was running away from something.
“Come on,” John reached for her hand, “Let’s get out of this rain. Is there somewhere we can go? Let’s just get out of here, even if it’s just for a minute.”
Tugging a little at her hand, “Look at me,” he waited, “Look at me.”
Lu turned, her eyes were softer now.
Dropping her hand to run his fingers through his hair, “This is crazy, I know. You don’t have to tell me. I’m crazy! I’ve known you for five minutes!” Ugh! He was so confused! “All I know is when I’m with you I feel like I’m flying.”
In Lance’s words: As always, you have 7 days from NOW (Wednesday), to write 100 words inspired by John Lennon “Starting Over”. Make sure to link up to the green Mr. Linky button, then use the medias that are social to tell a friend or 50. Thanks for playing.
