This week on Adam and the Ants:
"It's not okay!" she sobbed. "You have always been a friend to me, and I've been such a bitch to you. I just... I don't know what I was thinking. I guess I thought that I was growing up and maturing and I hadn't seen you so I didn't consider that you were growing up and maturing too and..." She stopped to take a sobbing breath. "Can you forgive me? I promise I'll talk to the El- I mean, um, the kids at Tito's and get the teasing to stop." A tear ran down her cheek, cleaning a tiny trail through the sooty smudge.
I reached up with my thumb and wiped the tear way, smearing more soot onto her face in the process. "How could I stay mad at a face like this?" I asked. We gazed into each other's eyes– Just like that day last summer–
This week's songs are After the Fire by Roger Daltrey and Solsbury Hill by Peter Gabriel. The Adam and the Ants 'soundtrack' is available for free listening on Spotify at http://bit.ly/13U48s1
