Feel the Beating of Your Heartache Drum
Thanks @toofunnytohear for the idea! <3
Bellarke Soulmates AU where they feel each other’s pain.
And childhood friends because that’s just how I roll.
When Bellamy is seven, he feels his soulmate for the first time.
Octavia is too busy crying, his mother isn’t there, and he nearly misses it, how his knee starts stinging out of nowhere, light pain that almost feels like a butterfly kiss.
He doesn’t know it then because soulmates are rare and most people are just happy to find someone they can call their own, with or without the universe’s interference.
But Bellamy reads a lot, so much that the old Miss Sinclair told him that he’s going to read his weight in books, and therefore, he knows things.
He knows about soulmates and how no science could ever explain them and by the time the second wave of pain comes, he is pressing his lips sealed. Even though there are tears in the corners of his eyes, he is happy.
Yes, indeed, Bellamy Blake is a very, very happy child.
