Day 16.  A song that you used to love, but now hate.

I don’t really have too many songs that I used to love and now HATE, so much as I have songs that I used to love, but now just find tolerable.  To select today’s candidate, I had to dig way back through my journals with lists of songs in them to find this . . .

"Meant to Live" by Switchfoot. 

I used to really, really like this song, back when I heard it on the radio all the time.  Now, not so much.

29 The Kindness (or not) of Strangers

It’s hard for him to remember that she was once a stranger to him.  Everyone he’s ever met started out that way, but it seems harder to believe considering how closely he feels towards her now. 

Not too many people would have considered saving his life, not in a crappy neighborhood like the one he was living in then.  Few would have dared to frighten a group of vengeful gang members, and even fewer would have stayed to stop the bleeding.  Then again, he suspects that her kindness is what made her his friend, and not just a Good Samaritan.

He wants her to pretend.  That’s what annoys her the most.  Her first legitimate . . . anything, in years, or ever, depending upon how she looks at it, and her boss of all people wants her to pretend it isn’t happening. 

It would piss Naomi off beyond all reasoning if it doesn’t scare her more.  She knows that if she doesn’t pretend, all it will take is one slip-up, one mistake, and he could disappear.  Her worries for James all but overpower everything else, because she knows that she will never be able to prove he’s insignificant to her.

27 Significant

The significant people in Marie’s life are many.  There are her parents, no matter how much they drive her crazy.  There are her siblings and the four cousins she spends all her time with.  There were her work girls, who have been replaced by her band mates in Redemption, and have become her good friends.

In spite of all these important people, there is one person, a man, who matters more.  As Marie looks over at Smurf, her boyfriend of two years, she knows that he will continue to be a significant part of her life for a long time.

Marie Wilson.  Original character.

Day 15:  A song that describes you.

I don’t know of too many songs that perfectly describe me now, but there are a couple that describe my outlook on relationships, or what have you.  One that did describe me, for awhile at least, was . . .

"Where Are You Now?" by Michelle Branch.

26 Heat

The bedroom door shut with a slam, as Anna and Jason went toppling towards the bed.  “Don’t you think,” Anna said, trying to speak between urgent kisses, “that it’s a little too hot for this?”

Lips working their way down her throat, Jason breathed, “Is it ever?” against her skin.

She laughed, working his t-shirt over his head.  “It’s ninety degrees.  And the air conditioner isn’t working.”

“So what?”  His hands fumbled with her bra, having already relegated the shirt to the floor. 

“We’re going to burn up,” she pointed out, her voice dropping.

His eyes smoldered.  “Yes, we are.”

Anna Foster and Jason Vilnas.  Original characters.

25 The last time you loved

If Naomi was being honest with herself, she’d been in love twice.  The first had been a royal disaster, a mess in the making, and a blow-up waiting to happen.  She’d just been too blind to see it coming.

The second had been practically nonexistent.  A touch here, a flirty comment there, and one last night that was forever burned into her brain.  She’d just been too afraid to let it happen. 

When Naomi was being honest, she admitted to having been in love twice.  The only difference between the two romances was that the second time had been genuine.
