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.

112: ‘Me Too’ by Meghan Trainor

Fergie has led a double-life, but now the secret is out.

Luckily, it only elevates her fame. From being a bit of an outlier, she becomes a celebrity. Everyone wants to be her. And finally, she is happy with herself. She thanks God every day that she can wake up loving herself.

Fame brings admiration, VIP rooms with her friends and free drinks.

She is accepted and happy. She longer needs Will‘s friendship or Evanescence‘s love.

Lyrics

Another year has gone by, Another story over, a new one can begin.

To newcomers: I start out every year with a fresh start. A new story with a new focus. It’s in the same universe and has connections to the previous ones, but it’s easier to understand because the backstory is limited to the bare necessities. Will I reuse the same characters? Will it be completely new? We’ll see.

Merry Christmas, happy new year and any other holiday taking place in the immediate future or recent past.

70: ‘A Song About an Anglerfish’ by Hank Green

Some people aren’t burdened with worry. One of these is Hank, who has found his peace from observing the life of a anglerfish.

He is bald and horribly lonely. His life has been a strife. He has been burned and spurned. He had misfortune in the world of love.

But then he found out about the angler fish.

It lives in the deep of the ocean and lives exclusively of fish. Like him, it is bald and friendless. It procreates by the male biting onto and melting into her skin, so the male is literally always by the female’s side until both die.

But since this is the only life they know, they have to be happy, because what else could they be?

This has kept him content for years. Because if he is in pain all the time, can he really call it pain? You simply don’t feel what is always there.

51: ‘Bleeding Love’ by Leona Lewis

Ink and Harmony got married years ago.

As Harmony predicted, no one believed in their ability to last. And to be fair, Harmony wasn’t a fan of long-term commitment when they met. She had closed herself off from love because she didn’t need the pain from heartbreak. She has tried that once or twice, and it didn’t do her any good. And as time passed, her heart froze.

But with Ink, for the first time, she has found something true. Her heart melted completely.

Everyone thought she had gone crazy when she accepted Ink’s proposal. But she didn’t care. She was in love with him, They tried to get her to back out, so she wouldn’t get herself hurt, but they didn’t understand. It’s not easy for her to open up and they work for it every day for it to work, but it’s worth it.

She loved him so much, she was bleeding love.

They still try to make her doubt, talking so loudly, she has to listen, doubt herself.

But in the end, nothing’s greater than the rush that comes with being in his embrace. His is the face she sees in a world of loneliness.

So she would keep working on keeping the cold from reentering her heart and the doubt to reach her mind.

They would be married, no matter what anyone said.

29: ‘Funhouse’ by P!nk

After having rekindled the flame in their marriage, Pink and Brad’s house and life became a fun house. They loved each other and were happy with their life, their home and lake. They even had a dog.

Pink didn’t find out about Brad’s secret, and what he had done to keep it before they had been married for a long while and not before it was too late. Not before They were in the house, dressed as clowns in order to be disguised.

They came at different times, while Brad wasn’t there, slowly torturing Pink with information about what Brad had done, echoing voices laughing from behind locked doors.

Their campaign began working. Slowly, like a tickle turns into a rash, Pink began hating Brad. She felt haunted by the evil clowns. One day it became too much. She was all alone. She danced around, watching the photos depicting the lie, she had been living, suddenly noticing a taunting smirk on Brad’s face. This home was already a museum full of ash, so she decided to burn it down. She would rather live out on the street than continue living in this haunted memory of their happy life. She moved out her stuff with the help of her dance crew (known as Movers and Maids) and broke everything else: tore down the photos, mangled the key, tore down the drapes and broke the plates. She counted down and laughed as she dropped the match: ”9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1, fun”.

She would find a new place to live, while Brad would think she died in the flames.
