97: ‘Hurt’ by Christina Aguilera

Will lost his mother to suicide. This is not a recent thing. What is recent, is him learning what made her commit suicide. He learns that his grandmother had mental problems. Apparently, his mother inherited them.

This makes Will see his mother in a different light.

She was not easy to be around as a child. She was demanding and they would often have conflicts and hurt each other. Now that memory hurts.

He now misses her voice. He wonders if she is looking down upon him. Would she be proud of him? He wishes he could go back in time and spend just one more day with her, hold her in his arms, take the pain away, thank her for everything and forgive all of her mistakes. But it’s dangerous to think like that…

65: Mother Mary

‘Scotland’ by The Lumineers

The Creator Of It All is known to her worshippers as Mother Mary.

They hold on to her, because they need something to hold on to, when society gives them hell. She inspires the living and cares for the dead. She is in control of everything and everyone by the power of her words.

A man named Steven, a devoid worshipper, has just killed his wife and is about to kill himself. So she appears before him and inspires him to live on, to not give up on life.

She is powerful and difficult to understand, having little mythos surrounding her. But worshippers feels her immense power and gets strength from that.

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.
