    Summary

    “I, uh, I had a mate--a soulmate,” he muttered quietly, and suddenly the room fell silent. No one seemed to even take an inhale after his little confession. “It’s obviously been a long time since then. It was back before the- back then.” He felt a burning behind his fifth rib, and tried not to remember the loving feeling of fire that came with it. (He could still remember how to drown. But the burning from the ice was never quite the same.)

    or the one where Steve had a soulmate and then didn't but kinda always did

    Summary

    Harry sighs happily as he falls silent, glancing across the street to watch pedestrians come and go. They fly past, consumed with their own lives, either coming home from work late or walking their dogs. There's a couple hovering in the alley, making out shamelessly in the middle of the afternoon. It makes Louis feel nauseous.

    "That's so cute." Harry comments. His eyes are sparkling in the way they do when he's being earnest, and there isn't a hint of sarcasm in his voice. "Wouldn't it be nice to be able to do that with someone?"

    Louis' heartbeat seems to pick up at that, refusing to settle down even after a moment has passed. He frowns down at his paper bag, still full with food, placing it back up on the dashboard with sweaty hands.

    "Yeah," He breathes out, feeling his chest tighten. "Would be nice."

     

    or

     

    Harry gives Louis head with no strings attached. They fall in love.

    Summary

    “Don’t- I know what you’re going to ask, and I… Harry, I can’t,” he said, his voice cracking. “Please. You know that I can’t.”

    Louis had his six siblings and his old house with its falling-apart porch to take care of. This town was where people still approached him, 8 years after high school graduation, to tell him that they loved him as Danny in Grease. This town was where he had his pick of suitors, where he had his first kiss, where he took his first steps, where his mama lived, died, and was buried, and he couldn’t leave just to follow some man that he loved.

    Harry, for now, seemed to understand that.

    “Okay, baby,” Harry sighed, rubbing his eyes. “Okay.”

    Summary

    Louis cannot remember his life before Harry. He had one- Harry is, after all, two years younger than he is- but he cannot pull up even one memory that is not somehow intertwined with Harry.

     

    the one where they are bonded, but it's not like that and they have to pretend like it is
