How Do I Love Thee? (part 1)
Bucky Barnes X Reader
People know that existence of a soulmate, but only about 1% of the population
meet theirs. Most people don’t even try to find their soulmate and settle for
someone they love, but will never fully love. Some people spend their entire
life searching the earth for that one person they are made for, some even go
mad along the way. But when someone does find their soulmate, my god, it’s the
most magical thing a human can ever experience.
Adelaide is a biomedical engineer that gets hired by Stark industries and finds herself diving head first in the lives of the Avengers. She meets a traumatized Bucky Barnes and realizes that she has found her soulmate, but being the soulmate of Bucky Barnes is extremely complicated and she is not sure if she’s strong enough the handle his demons.
Author’s notes: This is just an introductions. There is nothing exciting that happens in this chapter. It’s just a set up for the rest of the story.
According to Greek Mythology, humans were created with four arms, four legs, two heads, and one heart. Afraid of their power, Zeus sent down lightning bolts and separated each human into two, leaving each one with two arms, two legs, one head, and a piece of each other’s heart. The separation left both sides with a desperate yearning to be reunited and because they shared the same soul, humans were condemned to spend their lives searching for the other half of their soul.
The moment a person is born, society bombards them with the idea of finding their soulmate. It has become such a dominant part of everyday life that everywhere you turn, people seem to be obsessed with finding their other half. Yet only about 1% of the world’s population finds their soulmate and everyone else settles for second best. But that’s never stopped humans from trying to come up with algorithms and methods of find “the one”.
A soulmate is such a powerful entity, at the age of 5 a person starts to feel their soulmates’ presence, they get visions of what their soulmate sees and occasionally feel waves of their emotions. When two soulmates find each other, the ground beneath them shakes and a bolt of lightning strikes, causing the veins on their forearm to pulse a beautiful light blue, it’s like Zeus himself is sending them a message.
