100 Word Song – The Only Exception


My work travel is dying down a touch so I will be paying more attention to the blog and it’s organization. 100 word song is staying on Tuesday mornings from here until we tire of its existence. Tell a friend or 50.

Today’s 100 word song was chosen by Susan aka @TooieNairn of www.polysyllabicprofundities.com . She’s been a loyal 100 word song player and she wanted The Only Exception by Paramore.

For my 100 we go back to Silas and Olive, our 19-year-old lovers on the run in 1989 Florida. I’m going to try to pick up the story with two more entries this week and aim for an “end” to this tale by April 1.

Last time: https://lancemyblogcanbeatupyourblog.wordpress.com/2014/02/19/100-word-song-you-better-run/

Silas lost control of his legs slumping to the grass. His head bumped the quarter panel of the Cutlass. Olive waited for Bart to slam the screen door shut.  She joined him, cross-legged, on the ground.

“They found his body.”

Realizing she meant her dead ex-boyfriend in Georgia, his heart beat a bit faster  and he struggled to get words out.

“So…what…does that…”

She interrupted him with a kiss.

No one in Georgia knows it was us, but in Florida, Zola and Bart do. They’re the only exception to our rule about our lives being about us and only us.

  1. Of all the folks I’d want to know my secrets, these two aren’t them.
    Re. Paramore- I’d written them off as teeny pop music (Avril L. style), but I caught a show at Voodoo and let me say, they fracking kicked ass! Totally converted.

  2. “She interrupted him with a kiss” is such a power line. Perhaps because it’s an image one can instantly conjure. Regardless, I think it sets the tone of this excerpt. Well done as always.
