Ever since he was a child, Ignis had a curious mind. He was always seeking knowledge, always curious to know minute facts about seemingly insignificant things. He wanted to know about the geography of Eos, the traditions of the Lucian royal line, the tales of Ramuh and Shiva. He loved hearing those stories, loved falling asleep to his mother’s voice, telling him about the might of the Archaean.
But Ignis’ favourite bedtime story by far was the one about soulmates.
“It’s said that everyone has a soulmate,” she’d told him one night, running her slim fingers through his tawny hair. “The Astrals created life on Eos. Creatures that walked on four legs with four arms and two heads. They had two hearts, two brains, and two souls. The gods were so afraid of their power that they split them in two, and humans have been wandering Eos in search of their missing halves ever since.”
Look around and appreciate, the earth had been around for 4.6 million years and somehow we exist at the same time as Harry Potter, Newt Scamander, Percy Jackson, Sam and Dean Winchester, Castiel, Middle Earth, Marvel Universe...Just take some time and appreciate these miracles.
