    Hope you enjoy!

    Story of our Souls

    Soulmates
    Are they real?
    Are they just our fantasy?
    Well, in the normal old world, perhaps.
    But here, in this not so normal world,
    Our lives are dictated by them.

    We are but normal things as children:
    Playing, laughing, living.
    At twenty, everything just
    Stops.
    Our age stays the same,
    Never to change.
    Until we meet
    The one.

    It's an ideal life,
    But not for everyone.
    Some of us just stop and wait.
    Wait for the person who will never come.
    Others will try and live forever,
    But age anyway.
    Some will kill their lovers,
    Just to stay alive.

    This is the story of our souls.
    Because it is what shapes us,
    And it is what controls us.
    We are enslaved by our souls.
    Not so romantic now,
    Is it?
    Natasha
    That's who we'll start with.
    With a courageous heart
    But a crueler mind
    She fits perfectly for this role
    She kills to live
    Kills for immortality
    All those lovers
    They are all gone

    She's lived for centuries
    So long she's lost count
    A bold woman who always kills
    Because she has no love
    For a lover

    But secretly she does
    That's what a soulmate is
    Someone apart of her soul
    She kills her soul
    Every generation
    Because all she wants
    Is to live
    Tobias
    That's who is next.
    In a few months,
    He'll meet that fateful age.
    He's nervous
    Like we'd all be.
    Unsure what sort of life
    He will live.
    Grow old with his love?
    Kill his lovers for immortality?
    Never meet his love and just keep
    Living?

    Questions like this fill everyone's minds.
    No one knows.
    Because we don't have a choice.
    But of course the human race
    Wants that choice.
    Technology is growing,
    It's hunting for lovers,
    And Tobias is hunting too.
    Before he even gets to stop
    He's already moving.

    That's when the fateful age
    Hits.
    Everything slows,
    Quite literally as well.
    Everyone experiences it differently.
    But they all know,
    That they won't start.
    Not for a while anyway.

    'Immortal'
    He gasps out,
    Collapsing to the ground.
    A small hand outstretches in front
    Of him.
    Above is a girl,
    Obviously she has surpassed twenty.
    For all he knows,
    She could be thousands of years old.
    Instead, she looks so young,
    It hurts
    Laura
    That's her name.
    A small smile is framed
    upon her face
    As she helps up Tobias
    'Welcome to immortality,'
    She says,
    The smile
    Fading
    'It sucks, if you're
    Like me.'

    What she says
    Is true.
    She's been alive
    For hundreds
    And hundreds
    Of years.
    She laughs it
    Off.
    And says,
    'I don't
    need love,
    I can live
    without
    It.'

    But of course
    It's a lie.
    Living without
    it,
    Means living
    alone.
    No one can
    stand that.
    The loneliness
    Eats us all up
    And spits out
    An unloving husk
    That was once
    Human.

    Thank you!
    I wish, I write a lot of stuff but I doubt I'll actually become a writer.
