The voice you’re reading this text in right now is probably your own, but, what if it wasn’t? What if it was your soulmate’s?
Everyone has a voice in their head they hear when they read anything; books, texts, emails, tumblr posts, etc.
They know the voice isn’t their own.
Even though science can’t explain it, the voice ends up being someone’s love of their love, or as it’s been put, soulmate.
What’s even more curious is when someone’s soulmate can’t speak, they don’t hear a voice when they speak, but see images.
These images are usually along the lines of sign language.
Every word is perfectly translated, not just to any sign language, but their soulmate’s sign language. All the shortcuts, and they can feel their facial expressions because they make them on their own face when they read.
The voice in their head is the same voice their soulmate will have when they meet them.
After they meet them, the voice in their head will change with their soulmate’s.
There are sometimes, when someone just can’t read, the words mix up, because they don’t really understand what’s going with their head when it comes to their soulmate’s ‘voice’.
Lucky for those people, once they meet their soulmate, their soulmate recognizes them by their voice and helps them understand their own ‘voice’.
Now, just imagine person A doesn’t hear a voice but instead they see hand gestures.
Everyone was telling A that the voice they heard when they read was their soulmate’s voice, but since their wasn’t a voice and no told them how deaf or mute people’s soulmate’s read A thought that the hand gestures meant they just weren’t meant to have a soulmate.
A studied the hand gestures until they became a second language to them.
Person B was deaf and because of that they thought the voice in their head was their own or something along those lines, because in the town B grew up in believed deaf people didn’t have soulmates.
B’s family moved to the city, the one A lived in.
It was in the first few weeks when A and B were put together for a partner project with C.
B signed to A and C that he was deaf and was sorry for the interrupter and before his interrupter could even translate A signed, “That’s alright and there’s no need to be sorry.”
B is shocked at this and signs excitedly and the two started a long conversation where is C would have stopped if it hadn’t been adorable. Besides, C knew they were soulmates and that’s what they thought they were talking about.
A few years pass and A and B have become inseparable with C still as one of their other friends.
A’s voice changes a bit and so does B’s head voice but, B already feels like a crazy outsider because of their ears, they keep quiet not wanting to be more of one.
A, B and C are together at one of their houses and C starts to talk excitedly because the new kid in their school is their soulmate.
A looks sad and B looks angry about C’s chatter. C signs what’s wrong and after a few minutes of both explaining their side C looks at them in disbelief.
After C explains how deaf people find their soulmate and makes it clear that A and B are soulmates they leave to give them some privacy.
A and B look at each other and B just breaks down. After being told all their life a soulmate was impossible for them they finally understand. They finally know that it’s possible and it’s already happened.
Once B, and A cause they’ve been telling themselves a soulmate couldn’t happen for them, stop the tears A signs, “Does it suck that you’ll hear one voice for your entire life?”
B let out a silent laugh and signs, “It doesn’t suck at all because it’s your voice and that’s the only voice I ever want to hear.”

Shipping is basically standing in the middle of a moving roundabout because at first you thought it would be funny to jump on and enjoy the ride but now it’s been five minutes, the world is spinning, your vision is blurry, you can taste sounds and there’s nothing to be done except accept the fall into the lifeless black void
