GRADUATION!!! I'm graduating. You think today would be great and exciting but so far it's just been very exhausting.

Me and Jake woke up late because we forgot to set the alarm so we had to shower and get dressed in record time.


Then we had to hunt down the graduation robes that we had some how managed to misplace. We ran out the door forgetting to grab breakfast. We raced to the school and just barley got there in time.

I was currently sitting in my ugly white robe between two people that I honestly don't know there names. One was in the math team and the other I think was really into sports. I wish they mixed the boys and the girls so I could be next to Andrew. but they like to put girls on one side and the boys on the other.

I wipe my hands onto my robe. It's so hot in the gym. It's raining so we had to have it inside.

The principal was making a very long and boring speech about what a great class we were and what a honor it was to be are principal the usual stuff he says every year.

Ten minutes later the first row of people stand up as names get called off.


"Andrew James."


"Maggie James."


"Jake Mathews."


"Jenna Palmer."


After the last names get called off the principal says another couple of sentences and then we all throw are hats into the air.

"WWWOOOOOOHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!" All the graduates yell while all the people in the bleachers clap. They play the traditional graduation march and we all in a single file line leave the gym.

I look around trying to find Jake when i'm hugged from behind.

I turn in their arms and look into blue eyes. I smile and kiss Jake's lips.

"Were free Mags!!!" Jake smiles.

I laugh. "We've been free for two weeks."

"Yes but now it's official."

Jake kisses me again then puts his forehead on mine.

"I love you Mags."

"I love you too Jake."

Andrew finds us in the crowd dragging Jenna along behind him. Jenna runs over and hugs us both and then Andrew does the same.

"My babies are all grown up!!!" We all turn to see my mother running towards us. She grabs me Jake and Andrew in one hug squishing us together.


My parents ended up dragging us all to lunch and the whole time they bragged to the waiter about how well raised we all were. We didn't actually get to relax until after we had said goodbye to my parents and we were lounging by the pool. Andrew and Jenna were splashing each other in the water and me and Jake laid down in the hammock.

I trace my fingers over his bare chest warm from the sun.

"Jake what do you think would have happened if you had never become friends with Andrew?"

"I'd be dating you."

I look up at him the tips of his hair still wet.

"But you wouldn't really know me because you wouldn't be friends with Andrew."

"Doesn't matter your my soul mate."

I flip that over in my mind. Soul mate?

"What do you mean?"

"Well your my soul mate so i'll find you in all of my lives."

"So does that mean you believe in reincarnation?"

"Yup. Don't you?"

"Yes. How did you know that?"

"Know what?"

"That I believed in reincarnation?"

"You told me all about your beliefs when I took care of you after you broke your leg. I hadn't believed in anything really until you told me your beliefs. I liked the thought of it though having many lives to love you."

I smiled.

"I love you Jake."

"I love you too."


later that night after Jenna and Andrew left Jake made love to me.

Afterwards we laid in each others arms trying to catch are breathe and when i was finally able to think coherent thoughts again i couldn't help but think about what Jake said by the pool. I'm not sure i could live a life without Jake. I was almost raped a few weeks ago and yet this is the happiest i've ever been. I feel whole when Jake is with me and I feel completely put together when we come together.

Jake nuzzles into my neck.

"Are you ready Mags?"

"For what?" I say confused.

Were holding are hands up in comparison his hand making mine look child like.

"To finally start are lives?"

"What do you mean?"

"Well were finally out of high school. This is the start of are adult lives."

I look over at Jake his blue eyes boring into mine.

"Yes i'm ready."

As long as Jake is there with me then i'm ready for anything.
