2018, chapter 9: ‘See You Again’ by Carrie Underwood (nr. 121)

Taylor has done something so horrifying on her revenge mission against her ex that it has made Perry, the man who loves her and has followed along, rethink his choice to do so. And Taylor can see that. So she tells him that he is free to leave, tells him goodbye and turns around.

And he’s gone, fading away into the setting sun. It breaks her heart, but she carries on and doesn’t cry. Because she’s not doing this for him, or her ex for that matter. She is doing this so she can see her child. And she will see it again, whatever she has to do for that to happen.

The child is the stars and light she follows. She carries her child with her in her heart and mind, until she sees it again. And thus she never feels lonely in the shadows.

At night she listens to the echoes in the wind calling her back to the time where they lived near the water and was a happy family. Where she had her child with her. She smiles at the thought.

She will do whatever it takes – even if it means losing another man she has loved.

2018, chapter 5: ‘Don’t Forget To Remember Me’ by Carrie Underwood (nr. 117)

This is a flashback to when Taylor was an innocent 18-old, moving out from her parents’ house. She grew up in a religious home celebrating The Lord by praying and reading the Bible. Taylor loved her parents, but by now she needed to get out and be on her own. Still, the departure was teary for both mother and daughter.

Her mum kept on talking in an attempt to put off their goodbye. She took her hands and said: “Baby, don’t forget; Before you hit the highway, you better stop for gas. There’s a 50 in the ashtray, in case you run short on cash. Here’s a map and here’s a Bible, if you ever lose your way. Just one more thing before you leave; Don’t forget to remember me.”

Taylor moved into a downtown apartment. It was lonely, there were bills on the counter and she missed home.

She called her mother every Sunday. She always told her, she was alright, even when she wasn’t. She ended one call by saying: “Hey momma, don’t forget to tell my baby sister that I’ll see her in the fall. And tell Memaw that I miss her… Yeah, I should give her a call. And make sure you tell Daddy that I’m still his little girl… Yeah, I still feel like I’m where I’m supposed to be. Don’t forget to remember me.”

One night she felt alone by herself. So she did something she hadn’t done in a while; she leaned by the bed and prayed to The Lord: “Lord, I feel so small sometimes in this big ol’ place… Yeah, I know there are more important things, but don’t forget to remember me.”

Also, I’m very sorry for the delay. My life has been a bit crazy the last few days.

101: ‘Temporary Home’ by Carrie Underwood

Home. A word that usually brings feelings of belonging. Not always though. Here are six stories about temporary homes:

Story 1
Will often had conflicts with his mother. When he was six, it got so bad, he was temporarily taken away from her. He had to grow up quickly as he was passed from house to house, family to family, school to school. He eventually learned to see that these places were just temporary homes. He didn’t belong there and would soon move on.

Story 2
Sara’s parents had big expectations to their children. This was partly due to their mother once not having a job and had nowhere to go. She was alone with Sara’s big sister, who was just a baby at the time. She wished for a time where she and her baby can find a place in this world, instead of more temporary homes. This shaped her outlook on life.

Story 3
A very old man lies dying in his bed. He’s surrounded by all his loved ones, amongst which an equally very old woman. He tells them not to cry for him. He’ll see them all someday after all. He looks up and says: “I can see Gods face”. This life was his temporary home. And now he’s going to his real home.

94: ‘Two Black Cadillacs’ by Carrie Underwood

It had been a long time since Sara kicked out her married lover.

One day she gets a call from his wife, Evanescence. The wife who apparently doesn’t know that he had cheated on her, which he had led Sara to believe.

Evanescence is shocked to find out. She herself has been flirting with someone else and hidden that, but couldn’t bear the thought of him having an actual, real affair. Sara assures her, that he need not know anything about her flirting. Not yet, anyhow. She should wait for the exact right time to tell him.

Two months later they finally meet each other at the husband’s funeral. both the preacher and his brother have good things to say about him, but the two women don’t even cry. They do all things you’re supposed to do: put a rose down and throw a handful of dirt in the grave, but all with dry eyes. But Evanescence also throws down a letter telling him everything. She has not said anything to him while he was alive.

Sara sees her do it. They smile knowingly and both walk away.

13: ‘Remind Me’ by Brad Paisley f. Carrie Underwood

Married life turned out to not be as romantic as The Old Flame, whose name was Brad, thought it would be. They longer made out in public for so long, that people told them to get a room. Brad began to worry, that it meant something was wrong. It felt like they were settling for a good relationship and missing out on a great relationship. He missed the way, he used to feel about Pink and wanted to feel that way again.

He used to kiss her neck, now he didn’t. Pink understood, what he meant and, to do something about his mood, asked him to remind her by doing that again.

They used to be so in love, they couldn’t get enough of each other. Once he dropped her off at the airport and their goodbye kiss dragged so much out, she missed her flight. They didn’t care much. That just meant, they would have one more night in each other’s arms. She used to make him late for work and sleep in his old t-shirts. Their relationship was passionate and they looked each other with love in their eyes.

They now both wanted to feel like that again, once again hold each other close. By now they just turned off the light and went to sleep. So they promised each other to keep reminding each other of their love. They once again did all the things, they used to do, and that made Pink fall in love with Brad in the first place.
