90 On the Radio

They were driving when it happened.  “Wait,” Smurf said, cranking the volume up with the radio dial.  “What was that?”

“What was—?” Marie began, but he shushed her. 

After a moment’s listening, they identified the song at the same time.  “Holy shit!” Smurf half-shouted.

“That’s you,” Marie yelped back.  “Oh my God, that’s you.”

In unison, they began to sing along to the lyrics of “Anywhere,” the latest single by Wrecked.  He was a drummer in the band he and his friend had started in high school.  Hearing their song on the radio was everything they’d been working for. 

Marie Wilson and Smurf.  Original characters.
