Okay, so he wasn’t alone, he was on a beach with two hundred other people. He wasn’t alone. He had lost his friends in the crowd though, and he had little hope of finding them again.
‘Just great,’ he sighed. He scanned the crowd again and took another pull from the beer in his hand.
It was his third already, and the buzz was just starting to hit him. He felt like he needed the liquid courage though, for one very important reason.
00:00:08:12 the numbers on his arm read.
Eight more minutes left until he met his soulmate.
Fuck he was nervous.
Chris downed the last of the warm beer in one go and started to push his way through the crowd. He still wasn’t sure what he was expecting; his soulmate was supposed to be his perfect match, but what did that mean?
Chris knew it would turn out fine, but that didn’t stop him from freaking out, just a little.
He’d meet the person he would spend the rest of his life with tonight. Anyone in their right mind would be nervous about that.
Got my helix re pierced today! After 2 years of having to have taken it out because of my mum flicking it when we were carrying on. So much better the second time round. Seriously if you want piercings go to forevermore tattoo parlour in Glasgow. They’re the best man :)
