The Velvet Verbosity 100 Word Challenge is back from the brink and ready to take on all comers. This week's word is "Myth", and my story is called, "No Myth"
I had to time it just right, starting the song just as she started up the hill, so I'd be singing the right part when she got up to me. I was playing acoustic guitar, trying to stay in practice before I had to go do my grownup work. I didn't know her name, only the swinging rhythm of her walk, her caramel skin and long black hair. I looked at her, and as she looked away I sang-
"What if I were Romeo in black jeans-
What if I were Heathcliff, it's no myth-"
(The above lyric used without permission is from Michael Penn's "No Myth", a criminally underrated song from 1989. The video is included below for your amusement.)
