2018, Chapter 41: ‘Human’ by Christina Perri (nr.153)

Chainsmoker is the leader of an army. She controls her troops with magic, and it’s weighing on her.

But she believes in her cause and gladly carries this burden. She can fake a smile, force a laugh and generally pretend she is okay and be the strong leader if it frees her people.

But she is only human. And one day she’s had enough. One day she is listening to her demons and suddenly it feels like she has knives in her heart. She falls apart…

10: ‘A Thousand Years’ by Christina Perri

Pink and the Old Flame are getting married.

As she stands ready to walk up to his side, Pink’s doubt emerges. How could she promise to love him forever, when every relationship thus far has failed? And won’t her fear lead this relationship to fail too?

But she dares to walk closer and sees him standing there, all alone and waiting for her. Her doubts wither away.

She walks up to him. Time stands still, as they promise each other love as eternal as the love that led them here. They promise each other that nothing will take away the bond they share. It has taken them years to here, and nothing will ever keep them apart again.
