101: ‘Temporary Home’ by Carrie Underwood

Home. A word that usually brings feelings of belonging. Not always though. Here are six stories about temporary homes:

Story 1
Will often had conflicts with his mother. When he was six, it got so bad, he was temporarily taken away from her. He had to grow up quickly as he was passed from house to house, family to family, school to school. He eventually learned to see that these places were just temporary homes. He didn’t belong there and would soon move on.

Story 2
Sara’s parents had big expectations to their children. This was partly due to their mother once not having a job and had nowhere to go. She was alone with Sara’s big sister, who was just a baby at the time. She wished for a time where she and her baby can find a place in this world, instead of more temporary homes. This shaped her outlook on life.

Story 3
A very old man lies dying in his bed. He’s surrounded by all his loved ones, amongst which an equally very old woman. He tells them not to cry for him. He’ll see them all someday after all. He looks up and says: “I can see Gods face”. This life was his temporary home. And now he’s going to his real home.

30: ‘Underneath Your Clothes’ by Shakira

The Leader, privately known as Shakira, is in a loving relationship with a man, whom she calls Honey. He’s a song written by the hands of God and doesn’t understand how she could love him as much as she does.

With him, the most private of her thoughts are safe and hidden. They can be themselves.

Because of him, she forgot the smart ways to keep her operation at Them a secret. And because of him, she is losing the insecurity, that lead her to begin the organisation in the first place.

They belong to each other trough good and bad.

She loves him more than all that’s on the planet, and so much she has to remind herself to move, walk, talk and breath. They’re so connected, they speak with silence. She’s tied up to this love, like a lady is tied to her manners.

She can see an endless story, an entire life, with him. She chooses him over Them and calls him her territory. And she feels, she deserves him, because of that.

I usually (read: have been for about a month or so) link to the beginning of the current story arc, but I’ve realised, I can’t tell exactly where that is until a few chapters/posts in, so that makes no sense. Instead, I’ll suggest a tag for you to click on to get the gist and a place to start reading to understand the context. This week, it’s ”They”.

And I’ll work a reference tool, you can look at, if you don’t have time to read trough the whole thing and/or just wants to get caught up real quick.
