Imagine your OTP
Just a snippet of a soulmates AU
Not many believed soulmates were actually real, but legend says that when you and your soulmate are in the same room time momentarily froze around you, giving a moment of privacy to meet.
So there I was in the small coffee shop on the corner, everything frozen around me. Being a bit of a romantic I realised what was happening in an instant, my heart leaping with joy. Wondering what they were like, I sipped my frappuccino as my eyes eagerly searched the room for my other half. At first I couldn’t see them, there was not sign of movement and a spike of doubt shot through me.
Wouldn’t it just be my luck this is all just some mistake and I don’t actually have a soulmate, I thought to myself.
However, I endeavoured to search for them.
Somewhere behind me I heard something though, a sound of a page turning. Spinning around in my seat, I saw someone peacefully reading, clearly too immersed in their book to notice the situation. Their eyes gently scanning the words on the page as I stared at them, taking them in, this person was my soulmate. A smile spread across my face, but I’m not a patient person. I coughed quite loudly into my hand in an attempt to catch their attention. It almost worked, they looked up from their book but not at me.
A panic look crossed their face, that the morphed into confusion, quickly followed by excitement.
Sitting a little taller in their seat, their eyes began quickly flickering around the room. Realising they were now looking for me I could no longer contain my emotions. I had then meant to give them a small wave but I fear it mostly look at is I was flailing my arm in the air. Well, it definitely caught their attention.
At last our eyes met. And time started once again.
