Leeroy computed the data from the past’s posts, especially the late entries from Cameron and Carrie and seemed to really admire the directions so many of you took. She Talks To Angels by The Black Crowes is about a Goth girl who loved her heroin yet so many of you turned your interpretations toward reflection, remembrance, love and heartbreak. k picked a really good song to write for. Thank you k. Leeroy liked Angela’s piece over at Tread Softly called Addicted http://www.angelaamman.com/2012/07/addicted-100-word-song.html She showed someone who had given up. So when Angela aka @angelaamman on the twitter was asked to pick this week’s song I wondered if Call Me Maybe or something suspect was on its way. But instead she chose the polar opposite of her 100, #1 Crush by Garbage. I think it’s a really tough but meaningful love song about absolute feelings in spite of everything.
For my 100 we revisit Jake Hanna in his hospital room in my short story Soul To Body.
Violet was asleep in the chair at the foot of the bed. Jake tried to toss the crisp white sheets away to walk to the bathroom.
Violet woke and jumped to her feet, sliding on the linoleum in her tri-colored socks, to his side.
“I’m fine baby.”
Violet ignored him and held his right arm as he stood.
“Mom may have told you to move on but she told me I had to be your number one girl for a while. I’m not ready to stop being that.”
Jake pulled her into his chest and whispered.
“You are my number one.”
