100 Word Song: "Crossroads"

The once and future King of England, Lance, whose blog will get a 5 minute fighting major when it encounters your blog, has renewed the one hundred word song story challenge, this week featuring Oh Land and their song "White Nights". This story is called "Crossroads".

I loved him, but he scared me. We were sitting at an intersection, staring up at a green light. Somewhere, a siren wailed. He was listening intently, his head cocked like a dog. I watched him.

"Where are we going?," I asked softly.

"Follow the sirens," he said, making a right turn and accelerating. "That's where the action is."

I could feel the sweat pooling on my lower back as he accelerated through the night.

"Why do you keep doing this?," I said against the rushing air.

"It makes me feel alive," he said. I hoped he was right.


  1. the guy a personal injury lawyer or does he just get his kicks from seeing people hurt?

  2. interesting to think about, what if he isn't right?

    (hey michael, would you consider taking off the word verification? with the change blogger's made, it's impossible to get it right! ack.)

  3. I love when I can actually "hear" the dialogue being spoken - great job!

  4. Yeah I heard this dialogue also. I find this is an interesting take on the song what with the ambulance chaser and all.
