2018, chapter 44: ‘So What’ by P!nk (nr. 156)

A marriage has ended. And the wife is ecstatic, even though he was the one to leave. She feels free from him. She’s a rock star. She doesn’t need him. She’ll have more fun without him. She’s gonna go out, get in trouble and start a fight.  She’s alright, just fine, and he’s just a tool anyway…

She goes out. She’s supposed to have a table, but they gave it away to Jessica Simps. No matter. She’ll sit with her long-time friend, Eminem, whom she lovingly calls Drum Boy.

She wonders if her ex will hear her sing about him on the radio and react violently. He might even kill someone. She’d certainly be in trouble. They’re all gonna get in a fight!

She’s not worried though. She can handle him.

She sinks into sadness, thinking about how he was never there. How did she not notice that earlier? She gave him life, her all… He wanted everything for nothing.

But so what? She’s just fine and neither wants nor needs him tonight.

2018, chapter 32: ‘America’s Sweetheart’ by Elle King (nr. 144)

Bruno is a Heathen. He bonds with his recruiter. Her hometown said she was too loud and she’d never be the poster type. But she wasn’t going to change for anyone. So she lit a match and burned it down.

She’s coarse and likes it. She drinks too much and wears old boots. She’s got bad tattoos and a chip in her front teeth. She is cold-hearted and breaks the hearts of every man she’s been with (causing them to say that she has no soul).

She’s still loud. She still likes blowing things up and getting her hands dirty – and now she can do it for a cause.

Bruno comments on her behaviour after he has won her respect.

She replies cheerily: “what do you want from me? I’m not America’s sweetheart. You love me anyway.”

2018, chapter 24: ‘Heathens’ by Twenty One Pilots (nr. 136)

It took a little convincing, but a movement began. A movement that wanted nothing to do with society and its priorities. No attachment, financial or romantic, allowed. That’s how you get swallowed and happily follow whatever rules society sets up.

That sort of movement attracts weird types. People who don’t just want to be left alone by society, but to hurt it like it abused them. And over time these people would gain enough foothold to change the movement to an actual destructive force. They call themselves heathens.

A new recruit has shown interest. The person introducing them to the movement isn’t convinced that they fit in. The recruit is too timid and has trouble trusting these strange types. So the introducer warns them to take it slow, don’t make any sudden moves and wait for people to ask them, who told them about this place.

And people here are scary. Murderers and psychopaths work side by side. And sometimes love happens, but it gets docked away in a room in the mind. Whatever needs you have, you have people around to take care of.

Newcomers are less welcome now. It’s said that they have a different smell. Some even claim that they can smell if their intentions are good or bad.

The introducer has some doubts that the new recruit can handle it. But when the new recruit joins on a mission, against their recommendation, and is able to stay calm even when it goes sideways, and the authorities are outside, ready to bust them, the introducer has to admit, that it looks like the recruit is one of them.

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.
