"Caleb, this will be our only contact. I am neither hungry for answers nor starved for attention."
I looked around the isolated parking deck, experienced a moment of zen, and asked my first question.
"How long will you live?"
Lucas smirked and replied.
"I am a hybrid. I will be well over 100 years when I expire."
*blogger's note* - This is another episode of the story I am writing. The other ones are here:
20) Shut Your Eyes
21) Lone Justice
This is in the form of 100 words for the great 100 word challenge at @velvetverbosity 's http://www.velvetverbosity.com/ The one word prompt is STARVED.
Today's song is what has been playing in my head all day. The first lines are awesome: "There must be something we can eat. Should find another lover? Should I fly to Los Angeles, find my asshole brother."
Gavin Rossdale wrote this song about his new age philosophy spouting friend Perry Farrell (then of Jane's Addiction). To me, for this story entry, the song represents Caleb's exasperation with logical answers being hard to find and grasping the bigger truth. Here's Bush's Everything Zen...break out your best air grunge guitar.
