J sent me his favourite film today. It's so funny. I wonder what other films I've missed out on, that aren't on The Infinity's harddrive.  

I tried to make cake today, but I couldn't find any of the ingredients in stores. Then I scratched my leg when I was crawling out. Unlucky day, I guess!  

There's a weird noise in the air conditioning unit. I keep thinking it's footsteps. 

Anyway, here's a fic I wrote today.

Soulmates [248 words, Jayden/Lyra]

Fandom: Loch & Ness (2042) Relationship: Lyra Loch/Jayden Ness

Tags: soulmates AU

Summary: First meeting.

Lyra had been writing letters to her soulmate since she was sixteen, but they had never met. Jayden was older than Lyra, and lived a long way away, so they had only been able to stay in touch by email.

When she came of age, her soulmark had been entered into the international database and come up as a match with Jayden. They both had a black crow-shaped birthmark on their inner elbows which was unique to everyone else's in the world. It meant they were soulmates, the perfect romantic match for each other. They were destined to be together.

They had got to know each other slowly, through funny anecdotes and late-night emotional conversations, and it had been lovely. But after nearly a year of just messages, Lyra was desperate to meet her soulmate in person.

She stood at the airport, shifting nervously from foot to foot, her palms sweating as she held up the sign she'd carefully crafted which read "MY SOULMATE", surrounded by sparkling glitter.

The passengers at Arrivals slowly filtered through customs, dragging heavy suitcases behind them. Lyra's eyes flitted from person to person, trying to spot the one she was waiting for.

And then, appearing right in front of her by magic, was Jayden, face split in a huge smile, eyes twinkling with happiness.

"Lyra," he breathed out, staring so hard at her that he didn't even dare to blink. She reached out and pulled him into a hug.

She was home.
