Every day I make the climb. There’s no way I’m getting into THAT elevator. It’s what horror movies are made of. Besides I see the headline now. Stuck in Elevator Woman Starves!

No one understands why I come. I can no longer perform, not since my vocal cord paralysis. I miss it terribly. It’s a yearning that haunts  ………Tom’s the only one that reminds me.

Sinking into the old worn couch I take my place, front row. He closes his eyes; crooning love to the microphone. In his reflection I too am reminded of love’s soulful sound. My throat aches.

Word Count: 100


P.S. Please make sure to read the others.

I wasn’t sure what to write this week. Then I saw a tweet from a comic illustrator I follow. “Pick up the closest book to you, read the first sentence on page 18. now: why did you do that?” The books closest to me was none other then This That And Sometimes the Other by our very own FF host Rochelle Wisoff-Fields. And the first line on page 18? “He makes love to the microphone as he closes his eyes and croons.” I had my story. I guess inspiration is the answer to why I did it.

Here’s a little accompaniment.

Fallin’ ~ Alicia Keys 

You Are So Beautiful ~ Joe Cocker 

Fever ~ Peggy Lee 

Witchcraft ~ Frank Sinatra 

At Last ~ Etta James
