Summary: in which you a am incomplete tattoo which completes itself once you meet your soulmate
you’ve always thought of yourself as a free spirit even when you were little
dreamed of going everywhere and having adventures
you’d rather travel the world then live in one place
and so with the incomplete mark of half a bird on your wrist
it represented your desire to go where you wanted
but it was incomplete
even more than wanting to go on grand adventures
you wanted someone to be there with you a
and have adventures with you
your parents were supportive of you deciding to try to find your soulmate whoever they were
but they knew the chances were slim
so they let you take a break for a year from college
o just travel the world exploring
like you always wanted to
maybe on your travels, you’d meet someone
and then your bird on your wrist might finally have a chance at soaring
your first stop: England
then France, Germany, Italy, Hong Kong, South Korea, Japan
you knew you had to be very careful, the bird mark could complete itself once you met your soulmate but if you weren’t paying attention, they might be lost to the crowd
you talked to many people in Europe, your multi-culture studies over the years paying off since you were such a polyglot
so by the time you had set down in Seoul
your hopes were down
how ridiculous to think you could find your soulmate this easily
might as well just enjoy the rest of your vacation without worrying about it
and the number one priority no matter where you travel to
try all the food
eat as much as possible
so after buying some steaming fish cake on a stick
you start strolling down the city street
someone bumps into you and you drop your change
he says in Korean and bends down to pick up the change and hand it back to you with a small smile
"it’s ok” you answer back a bit awkwardly in your basic Korean and return the smile
he laughs gently and drops his board and starts pedaling away
you look down at your watch to check the time when
on your wrist is a completed mark of a soaring bird
you call louder trying to see if you can spot the guy on the skateboard amongst the crowd of people
you start running
maybe staying in shape should have been one of your goals, you think to yourself as you sprint
this was not going to be literally "the one who got away"
not because of you not running fast enough
but then you see him
he’s pedaling towards you as fast as he can on his board
staring at disbelief at his wrist
while people leap out of the way
you both stop right in front of each other
huge goofy grins on both your faces
and without even saying anything
he wraps his arms around your waist as he lifts you up into a hug
whirling the both of you around much to a passerby’s staring
and you both laugh amazed and incredibly happy
and you both walk towards a near-by park to escape the crowds
“my name’s Minghao."
names are exchanged and you get to talk about stuff
"I’ve never been on a skateboard before."
"Really? Here let me show you! I love being on a board, I feel like I can go anywhere"
you laugh that’s how you always wanted to feel
he places both hands lightly on your waist as you stand on the skateboard all wobbly
"Just try to keep your balance…” he says right as you feel yourself moving forward and slipping
the board flies from under you rolling about ten feet away
you however land
in Minghao’s arms
he laughs, his whole face lighting up
both your faces inches away from the other's
you laugh too and thank him as he helps you up
“welp you fell for the first time, that’s progress. Necessary for the learning process. Should we go get something to eat?“
"I wanna buy a board first"
you drag him into a skate shop near the park and buy yourself a similar board to Minghao's
he bravely takes your hand when you’re walking out of the shop carrying your board
one of his arms secured around his skateboard
and his other hand in yours
as he shows you some of his favorite places to skate and hang out and eat
you learn that he’s in an idol group called seventeen
"Wait you’re an idol?"
"So you sing and dance?"
"And martial arts and skateboard yes"
"You’ve traveled the world though"
you both laugh finding more things in common in your personalities
Minghao was so sweet, cute, and good looking
swooning, you couldn’t believe he was your soulmate
multi-talented as he was, you felt boring in comparison
"I’ve always wanted to see the world, since there’s so much to explore and so many possibilities. My stage name The8 means infinite possibilities. I think you’re incredible to have gone on adventures like that"
you’re so surprised but happy to know he didn’t find you boring at all
"Let’s go on adventures together in the future"
“deal” you both smile at each other and round the final corner before reaching your goal
a convenience store
ramyeon is a must
you both start to walk up to the store when the store doors open
twelve guys walk out holding bags of snacks and munching happily
“Oh no…” Minghao looks at them eyes widening
“Who are they?"
"My group members” he says right as they look up at you two
“Isn’t that Minghao?"
"Is that a girl with him?"
“He’s gone for like two hours and gets himself a girl?"
"YAH MINGHAO WHAT ARE YOU DOING?"
Minghao starts laughing and pulls your arm, putting down his board telling you to put your board down too
"Before they catch us hurry!"
you hear the twelve boys start running after you and Minghao
you drop your board
"But I still don’t know how to ride!” \
“it’s ok you have me here nothing will happen to you” he smiles at you and takes your hand
you both pedal on your boards away listening to his band mates throwing snacks at you both trying to get your attention
“MINGHAO YOU BETTER EXPLAIN THIS WHEN WE SEE YOU LATER”
“SHE’S MY SOULMATE” he yells back at them
and then you’re both riding away
eventually you both come to a stop at a park
sitting on the bench, hand in hand, you both stare up at the sky
and maybe at each other
“Can I get your number?” you say, after mustering up the courage
and chuckles and you both exchange phones for a moment
you notice his background is a picture of all his members holding a trophy
“when was this?"
"ah, that was when we won 1st place on a music show for the first time, i was very happy that day"
your eyes scan each and every member, noticing some were a little puffy eyed
but then your eyes settled on his face
he showed the same exact bright smile as he had when he meet you
it warmed your heart
"so can I listen to a song?"
and so you sat there, him explaining each and every song
to the title songs, the performance team songs, to his own duet with his fellow Chinese member
and then he let’s you listen to highlight, and you say to let you guess his parts
when the song’s over you giggle
"i’m like a bird?"
he laughs and wraps his arms around you happily, resting his head on your shoulder
Basilique Notre-Dame de Montreal / Notre Dame Basilica
The church’s Gothic Revival architecture is among the most dramatic in the world; its interior is grand and colourful, its ceiling is coloured deep blue and decorated with golden stars, and the rest of the sanctuary is a polychrome of blues, azures, reds, purples, silver, and gold. It is filled with hundreds of intricate wooden carvings and several religious statues. Unusual for a church, thestained glass windows along the walls of the sanctuary do not depict biblical scenes, but rather scenes from the religious history of Montreal. It also has a Casavant Frères pipe organ, dated 1891, which comprises four keyboards, 92 stops using electropneumatic action and an adjustable combination system, 7000 individual pipes and a pedal board.
