Message of Love

Last time with Helene Troy:

Helene continued to admire her father’s 1981 record album cover. Ramona’s long, weathered fingers nudged strands of damp brown hair away from Helene’s face.

“Your dad’s no more full of shit than anyone else. He probably felt disconnected from his music. I’ll look at my old stuff and it seems foreign.”

Helene tilted her head into Ramona’s touch. She felt warm and safe, despite being soaked from the rain. Ramona pointed to a dresser.

“Open the bottom drawer and take whatever.”

Helene bent down and picked through bundled t-shirts. She settled on something white with black lettering that spelled out “Pretenders”.

This is my response to Velvet Verbosity’s 100 challenge around the word BUNDLE –

This is also a new Helene Troy story episode. You can find the story, so far, here:

Today’s song has to be from Helene and Ramona’s hero, Chrissie Hynde and The Pretenders. Message of Love fits what’s going on in this piece so….

  1. I get that feeling of disconnect from the old music, too. I listen to it later and either feel rocked to my core by it or completely flabbergasted that it ever held a place in my heart. Well-said.
