Soul Mate

Everyone believes that someone out there holds the key to their happiness. Most would consider this person as a boyfriend or a girl friend, husband or wife.. what have you. But my soul mate is something totally different. This is a love story, but not the kind you'd think.

They met when they were 5 years old, going on 6. She wore a mighty ducks hat backwards, baggy jeans and new kids on the block t-shirts, just your typical tom boy. You messed with her and she'd kick your ass. He was quiet, dressed "normal" and didn't dare try and stand up for himself. Complete opposites but became the best of friends. He saw something in her that no one else ever could, that only he could explain. Little did she know that he would become what she considered a soul mate.

He is her best friend. He has seen her go through everything, from her first of many heart breaks to when she finally learned to ride her bike without training wheels. There was no one that could compare or know her quite like him. She is very hard to handle and hold onto. The minute she feels like she isn't in control she will run and not look back. With him though she knows she's okay and will never be replaced. They hold a special place in each other's hearts and that is all the comfort in the world to her. She's complex, very unpredictable but he knows she's twisted and dark, he knows she acts on impulse and gets hurt more than she should but through it all he has loved her anyway.

He is her soul mate because he is her better half. They will never be more than best friends but that's why she can still believe in this concept of one person having that key. No one will be good enough for her just like no girl will ever be good enough for him. As they grow up they can still see the little kids in each other and to him she'll always be that little tom boy with her backwards mighty duck hat that he will always care for and protect.
