"Mamma. What's a mate?"
"Liam, honey. Where did you heard that?"
Five year old Liam said hugging a book half his size. He went to his mother's side with his hazel eyes sparkling with curiousity.
"I read it here." He said hugging the book tighter. His mom just smiled lovingly at him.
"Honey.." His mom called and carried him to her lap.
"Mate's don't exist anymore."
"I know, but what are them?"
"Well.. Mate's are the people who were destined for you. They will the person you love with all you're being. You'll feel their pain, sadness but that's good too because you can also feel their joy.. their love. Your mate will be the most important one in your heart. In your life. You'll end up not getting enough. You'll end up being overly possesive but that's good too. You need to protect someone you cared for. He/she will be your soulmate."
Liam end up just speechless. His mom knows that her intelligent son understood her. That's why she smiled at her son's amazement filled eyes.
"I'll find my mate momma!"
She laughed at his enthusiastic reply.
"Liam, honey. Mate's don't exist anymore. I'm sorry."
