48. Banner no. 48
Joyce stared at the blank Word document on the computer screen. She had to do this. She just had to. Otherwise she'd flunk English. But why was this one CAT so hard?! She grit her teeth and pulled at her hair in frustration.
Then her phone made a sound, and she looked at it in surprise. Who on earth would be texting her at this hour? She reached for it, and saw that is was only a 'Telstra_Thx' message. She rolled her eyes and put her phone down.
That's when she caught sight of her iriver. She tilted her head, staring at the little white object. She reached for it and pressed the earbuds into her ears. She turned it on and scrolled through her music. She came to the 'K' folder, and opened it. The first song was "Kalafina - Lacrimosa" and she smiled a little and pressed 'play.' The gothic music traveled through the tiny wires and into her ears, filling her head. She let the Japanese lyrics sink into her brain, and looked up at her computer.
All at once, a little story idea came floating into her head.
This, my good readers, is practically my life story. No, my name is NOT Joyce. Just sayin'. But, y'know, listening to music is how my stories come to me. You should try it sometime, the lyrics really get to ya! Trust me!
