The Power Of Love
These are Hc’s based on the song: ‘Power Of Love’ by Huey Lewis & The News for @letshearitforthe-boy , I hope you like them!!
~Richie first became aware of the fact that love wasn’t simply one straight up feeling, but a mixture of about 20 emotions when he was sixteen.
~As a child, he just thought that one day he’d simply feel the magic feeling with some girl when the moment was right.
~Richie came to realize that falling in love was different for some people. It made some people incredibly happy while others became upset or angry. He didn’t quite understand how anyone could be upset about falling in love until he fell in love for himself.
~With a boy, who was also his friend. Love wasn’t fair, he decided. But damn, it was strong.
~He couldn’t stop thinking about Eddie and it was simultaneously the best and worst thing.
~He was simply planning to ignore the feeling and die with it. But one day, Eddie made a move and he felt that tidal wave of love. It was so powerful, it knocked him over. Literally. Meaning, Eddie kissed him and he was so shell shocked, he tripped over the curb outside Bill’s house.
~Eddie laughed for about ten minutes on and off, that cute little infectious giggle that Richie wants to hear for the rest of his life.
~They make a date for Friday and Richie is over the moon.
~Friday rolls around and Richie is in his car parked outside on Eddie’s curb five minutes early. He is changing the station over and over until he lands on a damn good song.
~’The power of love is a curious thing. Make a one man weep, make another man sing. Change a heart to a little white dove. More than a feeling, that’s the power of love…..’
~Richie starts singing along, drumming hard on the steering wheel and having the time of his life.
~’ Don’t need money, don’t take fame, Don’t need no credit card to ride this train. It’s strong and it’s sudden and it’s cruel sometimes But it might just save your life. That’s the power of love, That’s the power of love….’
~Eddie suddenly throws the car door open with a smug smile but instead of being embarrassed, Richie keeps going but is now trying to serenade Eddie.
~Eddie thinks he is the biggest dork he has ever met and he loves it with all his heart.
~So they end up singing Huey Lewis & The News the whole car ride there. It is one of Richie and Eddie’s favorite memories together.
