Colours like to work in strange ways. Your world doesn’t just expand to a million hues once you make eye contact with your soulmate. Instead, colours fade in (or out) one by one as your relationship with your soulmate strengthens (or weakens) until you can see all the colours of the world. For now though, Alexei can only see one. Sometimes, when he’s lucky, he catches a glimpse of another, but that comes and goes and he’s yet to find out who triggers it.
