2018, chapter 31: ‘Grenade’ by Bruno Mars (nr. 143)

People become heathens for different reasons. Bruno became one after having been abused by his girlfriend.

He loved her more than anything. He would catch a grenade for her, throw his hand on a blade for her, jump in front of a train for her, take a bullet for her. And he just wants her to love him just as much.

She doesn’t. She does say, that she loves him, but she’s lying. She wouldn’t do the same for him. In fact, she beats him and damages his car. She takes all she can because she knows that she can easily lose it.

He should have known. He remembers, how she had her eyes open for their first kiss.

But he still loves her and would still go through all that pain, even die for her, even though he knows she won’t do the same for him.

95: ‘That’s What I Like’ by Bruno Mars

Will has come into money. Lots of money. And now he wants to spend it on Taylor, his girlfriend. Anything she wants. And if she doesn’t know what to ask for, he has suggestions:

Coming to his recently acquired condo in Manhattan
Or renting a beach house in Miami
lobster tail for dinner
Or his new assistant, Julio, can get her scampi
money
a ride in his new Cadillac
Gold jewelry
strawberry champagne
Silk sheets
white diamonds
trips to Puerto Rico
shopping sprees in Paris

Whatever she wants, it’s hers. And he’ll enjoy giving it to her. He likes to see her smile and promises she will never have a reason not to anymore.

34: ‘The Lazy Song’ by Bruno Mars

Ink was a young, uneducated man, before the met Harmony. He was unmotivated and mostly just laid around.

Most of his days looked like this:

He would just lay in his bed, ignoring his phone entirely. Kick his feet up, stare at the fan.

He would be lounging on the couch, just chilling in his snuggie. He would click to MTV, so they could teach him how to dougie. There was no one around to tell him, he couldn’t.

In summary, he would spend his day in bed watching television.

Occasionally he switched it up. He would do some P90X, pick up a girl and have some really nice sex (for her as well).

He always said he might get a college degree and make his father proud.

Now he has Harmony. He can still have a lazy day. Days, where he’ll strut around in his birthday suit with unkempt hair and everything hanging loose, doing nothing at all.
