I’ll see you tomorrow
I’m not sure why I feel that need to post what I have been writing lately but here I am with another drabble that I wrote in resonse to phansexual-neko prompt.
Summary: basically the prompt
Warnings: a bit angsty
Dan was seven and looking had the words stamped on his wrist. He didn’t know what they meant but he knew they made him sad. When he asked his mom she said they meant remember happy times and thinking of sad ending. Not that her words helped. He nodded his head and pretended to know what that meant.
Dan was twelve and was mesmerized by the phrase on his wrist. He now knew why they were supposed to make him sad. He would only know who his soulmate was after their time was through. He didn’t believe in soulmates though so he still wasn’t sure why the words made him ache. How could he believe in soulmates when he wouldn’t know who they were till they were dead?
Phil was 22 and everything Dan had ever wanted in a best friend. He knew that the words on Phil’s hip made him sad like the words on his own wrist made himself sad. The difference was that Phil knew why they made him sad. He believed in soulmates. He knew that the word “goodbye” written on his hip really did mean goodbye. Goodbye to the person he was meant to spend his life with.
Dan was 22 and still didn’t believe in soulmates, but he did believe in love. What else could the way his heart leapt and stomach turning mean. He was in love and he wanted it to stop. How could he love his best friend? The one who wouldn’t let him say goodbye. It was always “see you tomorrow”. Why did those words make him sad? Why did the 28 year old man child make him remember the best and dread the worst.
Dan was 23 and he hated the words on his wrist. They were mocking him. Dan was all alone in the flat he had shared with his best friend crying. That’s not true, he was balling. It was his fault, he had to tell his best friend goodbye. What had Phil responded with? He had said the words that had made him sad when he was seven. He had mumbled “Ill see you tomorrow”. Dan now knew why they mad him sad. They meant a promise that couldn’t be kept. How could Phil keep his promise in a casket? But after all that Dan still didn’t know what his mom had meant.
Dan was 28, the same age as Phil when he had died. He knew what his mom meant now that it had been five years. Dan saw his best friends name on his grave stone and remembered the good times. But he also thought of the sad ending. Dan now believed in soulmates. What else could his best friend have be. You’re supposed to love your soulmate forever and Dan would. He still loved Phil even after he had broken his promise.
I don’t really like this but maybe you will. I really wish I could get myself to write longer stories.
