Now I Can't Remember

Work Text:

It was the most ridiculous thing. I couldn't remember the song. There was a little riff in it that would stick in my head, but no words.

I found it, weeks afterwards. It was the strangest thing. My big brother had it, taped off the radio when he was maybe a year younger than I am now. It's that old.

'Can I have it?' I said.

He smiled, and gave it to me, without asking me why. He's all right, is my brother.

I carry the tape in my handbag. If I see her again, I'll give it to her.
