Misplaced Hope

Shane plugged the address into his Samsung and tossed it onto the Camaro’s leather bucket seat. Calling WesLea’s was a good idea. He knew she’d give Clara up. She was weak and  had a soft spot for him. Of course Clara would eventually reach out to family, and she did.

He’d persuade her, bring her back with  flowers, candy, promises, whatever the hell she wanted. He still thought they were just two fools in love.

He muttered,  “God, I miss the honky tonks. Milk shakes at Dairy Queen, and 7-Eleven’s Doritos.”

580hp roared onto the highway,

“I must be crazy.”

A new installment written with the 100 Word Song prompt at My Blog Can Beat Up Your Blog. The song this week is (Nothing but) Flowers by The Talking Heads. Lots of material to work with in this song.

This installment finds Clara’s sister WesLea is creating issues for Clara consorting with Shane.

    oh Deb, I love a good story…but this one feels too contrived.
    Don’t go back Clara, he’s just looking to break your heart all over again.

    loved the interpretation of the song and his thoughts. Good job.
