2018, chapter 22: ‘Told You So’ by Paramore (nr. 134)

Two girls have gone to a bar. One of them, who calls herself Chainsmoker, is meeting one of the bartenders. She is completely smitten with the bartender. She tells to the other girl, who calls herself Little Mix, that this might become an actual relationship.

Little Mix is not impressed. This is exactly what they decided to leave behind some years ago, and now Chainsmoker has given up, and just like everyone in this world is following the norms.

Chainsmoker argues that one relationship doesn’t make for a betrayal of all of their ideals. She reminds Little Mix that she has slipped up many times before, and Chainsmoker helped her out of it.

Little Mix reminds her that she at least took the criticism into consideration and tried to be cool about it, even when Chainsmoker seemed to enjoy being right when Little Mix was wrong. Even now, when the roles have been reversed, she is trying to be calm and Chainsmoker is too passionate to listen to reason.

2018, chapter 20: ‘Delicate’ by Taylor Swift (nr. 132)

This happens while Little Mix is fighting of a pushy guy and is the reason they went to that bar in the first place.

See, Chainsmoker is dating one of the bartenders. It’s very new and delicate, but Chainsmoker is smitten. She thinks about the bartender sometimes when she should be sleeping. When she looks into the bartender’s eyes, she sometimes pretends they could be a couple all the time.

And it really isn’t for the best. Her reputation has never been worse. But that just means that the bartender must like her for her.

This particular night, the bartender has invited her to this dive bar on the east side. And so she and Little Mix go there.

It’s an informal place, so the bartender is dressed in dark jeans and blue Nikes – a very attractive look. The bartender makes her a drink at the bar at the very back of the room.

The couple goes across town to the west side.

Here they talk about their relationship. Chainsmoker lets her lover know, how much she likes and wants them. They’re is in her head. She knows the couple can’t make any promises yet. She asks if it’s okay, that she admits all of that this early (the couple isn’t even monogamous yet).

It is.

They spend the evening entangled. She asks her lover to stay here. The couple stays for the night. Chainsmoker watches her lover sleep and wonders if they’re dreaming of her.

2018, chapter 11: ‘I’m Yours’ by Alessia Cara (nr. 123)

Taylor has made her ex her slave through magic. She did this because he had tricked her into being docile by being jealous and buying her love. He had controlled her, and when that no longer worked, he had kicked her out and kept her away from their child.

Now she has their child back. And she controls him completely.

Problem is that her enslavement involves him being completely and utterly in love with her and constantly trying to charm her. And damn is that man charming. She falls right back in love with him. She chooses to remove her control over him. And shockingly, he still wants her back. He still calls her beautiful.

And it pisses her off that he has still this effect on her. Melting her heart of iron and tearing down her walls of rudeness. She was so used to boys using her in the past and reacted to that by manipulating them. But Will was always real with her. When they first met, she felt lonely. He made her happy. So happy, she spent their time apart daydreaming about their life together.

So she’ll give him a chance. But he has to handle her with caution. Few have made her feel this way or pushed her as far as he has. The thought of falling for him again scares her, but if he promises to catch her, it okay. If he does that, she’s his. It still pisses her off, though.
