What if I told you that...
In the future, the government got overruled by the Royals
The Royals enforced the 'Soulmate Law'.
The law stated that on every teenagers eighteenth birthday, they had to take a test and on their nineteenth birthday, they received a unique pendant, but only half of it. That nineteen year old had a soulmate who received the other half of the pendant on the same day, even if they were older.
The Royals hosted an annual themed soulmate ball for those who received a pendant that year in the hopes that more people would find their soulmate quicker.
Would you believe me?
