    Summary

    “ You were right; I don’t love you, you don’t love me.
    We’re just two lonely people trying to hate ourselves a little less.
    Maybe that’s all we’ve ever going to be. Maybe that’s all we ever were.”

    Summary

    burned.

    He decided to go to Riley's place, because Riley's place had always offered him some sort of comfort and the bay window he'd sat with her at a million times before, the window he'd climbed into more times than he could count, held a respect and a warm feeling that he missed whenever he left the room.

    It was empty; decorations were all still up and it was the same as it always had been save for the dust. Farkle leaned on the window glass and tugged slightly to see if it would open, though he knew it was locked.

    It had been locked exactly two years ago when she'd found a boy and ran away and shut everyone—every single person that meant anything at all to her—out of her life.

    or

    In which Riley runs away and those closest to her are left to face the aftermath.

    Summary

    This is a series of Joshaya one-shots completely led by the readers. I only write if a reader submits a prompt/story idea. Occasionally, I might write my own but I'm saving my ideas for my current Joshaya story- Valentine's Day (check it out!). If you have a prompt/idea, feel free to send my way. Just write a comment with the prompt in one of my chapters.

    Summary

    "But what if I'm not--"

    "What if you're perfect for them?" he retaliates, searching her expression. "What if your tiny quirks--your being a light sleeper, your sarcasm, the way you make funny voices when you're anxious or scared or sad, what if those are exactly what your soulmate needs? That's the whole soulmate deal, Maya--you're perfect for your soulmate and your soulmate is perfect for you. There's no disappointing anyone."

    She stares at him, her chest rising and falling heavily, blue eyes too close for him to focus after his rant. Her gaze flutters over his face like she's seeing him for the first time, and she whispers something he can't hear before speaking, her voice laced with wind and longing. "Would you wait?"

    "What?"

    "For m--your soulmate, if you had to. Would you wait?" She catches herself as soon as she notices her slip, but she's dazed and she isn't focused on her own words as much as she might have been before he'd spoken.

    He doesn't miss it.

    (Joshaya Soulmate AU where there are different ways to find out who your soulmate is--the main one being where anything written in ink onto your skin is immediately transferred onto your soulmate's.)

    Summary

    Her mother used to tell her the origin of soulmates as a bedtime story. They used to be common, back in the ancient times, those creatures who sported four arms, four legs, a head with two faces. As time went on, the Gods grew jealous, and out of fear of the soulmates rising up and destroying them, they ripped the soulmates apart, one soul forced into two different bodies. Creatures with one face, two arms, and two legs. Forced to wander the earth alone, the soulmates cried out to their goddess of love, to plead with her to give them a sign, anything to lead them to their other half, for they were not meant to wander the earth alone. The goddess eventually took pity on the lost souls, and branded each fated pair with a matching identical mark upon their wrists.

    Summary

    They were at a standstill in the middle of a burning bridge. He knew what he needed to do, and so did she but they just stood looking straight through each other. The armour was gone, lying in fragments around them, no longer lying to themselves and each other.

    Maya didn't know where to go from here. She and Lucas just couldn't seem to build up the courage to take that one step and finally after years of ‘will they, won't they, they can’t’ enter into the relationship they both longed for.
