They have been together for 50 years now and one day Gilbert return home to a empty house and a note saying “find me” with a red tread attached to it. It leads to the kitchen, then the living room, then their room, the study, then outside, pass the garden and into the quiet woods behind their house. night is falling and fireflies are flickering and he still follow the tread.
He find Matthew waiting for him making figures with the red tread in his hand and smiling brightly.
This is a bit sappy but the fate and soul mates prompts is the best for that.XD
I was thinking how I would be the perfect American president based upon my skill set, dance ability, and bloodlust. All men are at least 30% attracted to me. My mother cried the day I was born because she knew she would never be better than me. At any given moment, I’m thinking about one thing: Richard Dreyfuss hunkered over eating dog food. I feel like I’m the Paris of people. I’m exquisite.
I love the idea of the red string of fate, and somewhere I read about an idea where some people can see/alter red strings. So Gilbert is a string mage that can cut strings and Matthew can attach them. Gilbert has cut many strings though he could never bring himself to cut his own but Matthew gets tired of watching other people fall in love and decides to get his cut so he can find a partner for himself. Lucky for him, he doesn’t need to go that far and finds the string mage he’s gone to is actually his soulmate.
