Prompt : I didn’t believe in soulmates until I met you
BTW : I couldn’t help it I had to do a soulmate au at some point, and in this au the first thing your soulmate says to you and vise versa
The words on your wrist had appeared on your 16th birthday and every day since you had read them over and over, trying to make sense of what they meant.
“Observe good faith and justice toward all nations. Cultivate peace and harmony with all.” It was a beautiful quote, sure, but in your mind, you did not believe that just because there was a (very poetic) quote adorning your skin, that you would have to marry this man (much to your mother’s dismay). Your mother tried to get you out of the house as much as possible to try to find your soulmate if that meant getting the newspaper, going to the market or basically anything else.
Today was one of those days in which your mother was trying to get you out, sending you to the market for apples, bread, and cheese. You walked slowly through the wooden stalls of the market, not wanting to go home just yet. As you walked your eyes were drawn to a man, probably just a year older than you, rushing past the market obviously in a hurry. He was wearing a general’s uniform, which caught your eyes as well (it also did not go unnoticed by you, how good he looked in it) he gave a small smile at you, or you thought it was at you, as he raced towards somewhere.
After a longer than it should have been trip to the market you strolled home with images of the quite handsome man still in your mind causing you to smile. You pushed open the heavy oak door to your home and walked past the sitting room when you heard an unfamiliar voice speak
“Observe good faith and justice toward all nations. Cultivate peace and harmony with all, that’s all I wanted to say, sir. I will be going now,” the voice said causing your heart to skip a beat and stopped dead in you dead in your tracks. You tried to contain your surprise and compose yourself, but excitement got the better of you forcing you to race into the sitting room where, of course, you saw the man who walked past you at the market. You stood in the middle of the room dumbfounded staring at the man in front of you.
“Oh- (Y/N), this is General Washington, we were just finishing up some business, is there anything I can help you with dear.” you father asked
“Please, you can call me George, It’s a pleasure to meet you,” he told you kissing your hand.
“There is dirt on your epaulets,”you rambled not knowing what to say.
His face grew into a huge smile, “ (Y/N), may I look at your wrist,” he asked causing you to nod. he slowly pushed back your sleeve and now it was his turn to be stunned, “you’re my soulmate.”
Time Jump To Many Months Later
You walked through the grass and flower-filled park with George on a beautiful spring day.
‘(Y/N), I never believed in soulmates until I met you, I believed that I would find someone one day, but it would not be because of the writing on my wrist. I didn’t believe I could love someone so much, or that someone could love me back. Until I met you of course. (Y/N), you are the harmony and peace in my life and I could not imagine spending my life with anyone else. Will you marry me?”
