83: ‘Girls like girls’ by Hayley Kiyoko

Fergie makes a friend while partying with Will. A little more than a friend, actually. Trouble is, she is married. Luckily, her husband is often away, so they have a chance to grow close. While Fergie likes men too, right now she doesn’t feel like being with one. She just wants to be with this woman.

But then the husband starts being home more and notices how much the two women go out together and that they sometimes kiss.

He confronts Fergie, and she has no problem admitting that she intends to steal his wife from him. So he best watch out.

73: ‘Stay’ by Sugarland

A couple lays in bed. All seems well, but small signs show that they are not. The man seems content, but the woman keeps looking from looking lovingly at her lover, absent-mindedly looking at the wall and pain filled glancing at the clock.

The problem is not the situation as it is. The problem is the fact it will end as soon as his wife calls. The woman is silently praying she won’t.

She knows that when that happens she’ll be begging him not to leave. And she’ll be left alone and crying. This has happened so many times now. She feels like she is dying.

She doesn’t want to do that again. So she wonders what she can do to make him realise that she can give him everything his wife can – and more.

So this time she begins the begging before the call: “Why don’t you stay? I’m down on my knees. I’m so tired of being lonely. Don’t I give you what you need? When she calls you to go. There is one thing you should know. We don’t have to live this way. Baby, why don’t you stay?”

He tries to go into the usual spiel about planning to leave his wife. But she is starting to doubt him and feels used. She is tired of living like this when they don’t have to.

He is deaf to her pleas. And she has had enough. She realises that if this is hurting her so much, she doesn’t have to live this way. So she lets him know that he shouldn’t come by anymore.

62: The end (and what’s new in 2017)

‘Need You Now’ by Lady Antebellum

While Dre fell head-first in love with Pink solely based on her helpless, his big declaration does not have the same effect on her.

But Dre and Slim help her lie down. She is at her last hour now – and her mind flashes back to Brad, the husband she left after she found out that he had been keeping big, horrible secrets from her.Memories scatter trough her mind, as it has many times before. She reaches out for him in her mind. She wonders if he still thinks of her, many years later. Now she needs him to be there and help her heal.

Brad, still looking for Pink, after she faked her own death and disappeared, is sitting in a rented room drinking, missing her. He wishes she would come sweeping in like she did when they were together.

Both are in pain. But both also realise that at least it means their relationship actually mattered to them.

NEW IN 2017!

Because the main plot has become, to repeat myself, comic-book-complicated, I’m shifting focus. I’m still in the same universe, but I will find a new main character to develop for the next year (don’t know who yet, depends on the song). I might return to Steven and Pink once in a while, but their story seems pretty final, so probably not (but then again, it wouldn’t be the first time, I killed Pink).

Chapter 60: ‘Space Bound’ by Eminem

Steven and Natasha are stuck in a loveless marriage. Or rather that is how Natasha sees it. This is how Steven sees it:

He loves her so much. But after the break-up with Pink years ago, he had difficulties showing his feelings. He had trouble trusting and believed love to be evil.

That belief changed when he met Natasha in Vegas. When they touched, he felt a rush, they both did. With a clutch they sealed a promise of what could be. At first it’s just torturous lust.

Lust turned to love. He starts out by warning her, that he could become dangerous, if she broke up with him, because he has been hurt before. She either didn’t take it seriously or forgot – possibly both.

He was so sweet at first. He told her in complete honesty that she took his breath away.

He would do anything for her. He loved her endlessly and feels weak around her. She felt the same, but held back at first in an attempt to not scare him away. But as she became more and more expressive of her love, his difficulties with showing emotion caused him to draw back.

This was when Natasha stopped believing he ever loved her. And by then he was too withdrawn to argue against it.

So she cut herself loose.  They were now married in name only.

He can stand this for one year and six months. He finds the strength to finally pour his heart out to her.

But by then she no longer wants him. And she no longer wants to talk. She tries to leave. In an act of desperation, he grabs her and chokes her. He ends up snapping her neck.

Tears steaming down his cheeks, he puts a gun to his temple and tells her once more how he much he loves her.

52: ‘Blow me (one last kiss)’ by P!nk

Children don’t see the full truth about their parents’ lives. Gaga and Rachel, Natasha’s daughters, didn’t see the tears, that were a big part of Natasha’s dreaming away. They only saw her mother’s mental absence.

Gaga and Rachel, Natasha’s daughters, don’t see the tears, that are a big part of Natasha’s dreaming away. They only see her mother’s mental absence.

But the tears are there, burning up her eyes. They are there along with milky-white knuckles  and sweaty palms from desperately hanging on to the life she and her husband, Steven, who is also the father of her two daughters,  has had, however little love there has been in it.

And there is still something to cling onto. Or at least so it seems. Steven still reaches out for her at night. But Natasha has begun rejecting his advances by excusing it with headaches. So he clenches his jaw and sleeps with his back to her. And after holding on for a long time, she realises that there is nothing to hold onto  – so she lets go.

Finally, she has had enough. She has done enough thinking and dreaming of better worlds. This is it for their marriage.

Finally, she longer has to deal with his telling her, she is too serious. Her head is spinning from his many words of criticism.Their days are awful, because of this charade and she has had enough. She wants her ignorance of his lack of feeling back because there was bliss in it.

So she tells him to blow her one last kiss. While they are still married, she starts living her own life, completely giving up on behaving like a married woman.

She won’t miss him and all the fights they always had and never let their daughters see.
She will no longer fight, no longer look for something that isn’t there. Instead, she will dress nice, go dancing alone, laugh, get drunk and take somebody home.

Now she’s going to do as she pleases, anything she wants. She will breathe freely at last and not worry about a thing.

And he’ll be sorry for how he treated her.

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.

48: ‘ My Mamma Said’ by Aqua

Despite the unhappiness that infects Steven and Natasha’s marriage, Natasha stays for the sake of their children. She gives up her life so that they can have a happier life.

Gaga, the older daughter, notices her mother becoming more and more unhappy. And she wants to do something about it. She thanks her for doing it but asks her to leave.

Natasha shakes off her concern. She tells her that  the best thing in life was getting Gaga and loving her higher than anything else in this world, and the worst thing in life is getting used to loving somebody higher than anything else in this world, knowing you’re going to lose it all in time. So she wants to do this for her.

It doesn’t get easier, when Rachel, the younger daughter, is actively working with Gaga. Rachel begs for Natasha to not leave.

Natasha stays. She stays and dies a slow death. Her mind wanders to all that way her life could have turned out. She becomes passive and spends most of her time lying around – and Gaga can’t look at her without crying.

Rachel, however, keeps holding on to her mother, begging her not to leave and run away from her mind and life. To release herself from her imagination and be with her family.

Both daughters circle their mother begging her to listen to them.
