FanFiction - Casey & Zeke - Soulmates

Re-post of a comment_fic, originally written here. But I guess it's about time to share it with all of you.

The prompt of the day was: any fandom / any character / soul mark AU where the last words your soulmate will say to you are on your skin at birth [pronoun] has "Don't forget the milk" wrapped around their wrist.

Please notice, that I've changed the prompt slightly, and the mark is only visible after the death of the soulmate.

Title: Soulmates
Fandom: The Faculty
Character: Zeke & Casey
Rating: G
Word Count: 440
Disclaimer: Of course, I don't own The Faculty nor the character :( - I'm just borrowing them for some fun



Zeke noticed his pale face and his reddened eyes the moment he entered the school.

"Hey, what's wrong?"

The boy just shrugged and tried to escape him, not willing to talk. But Zeke was determined to stick to his guns. He grabbed for his arm and he noticed it.

The mark! 'Don't forget the milk.' As strange as Casey was but the answer for his behaviour lately. He had lost his soulmate. Casey had had a soulmate? Hard to believe. Zeke had always been sure that the boy was as alone as he was, not willing to share his life, his fate with someone else.

"I'm sorry," he murmured.

Casey jerked his hand away and tried to hide it; annoyed he stared at Zeke.
"Why do you care? That's none of your business!"
Tears were sparkling in his eyes and though Zeke usually wasn't a very compassionate guy, he couldn't help it. He pulled Casey into his arms.

"Hey, it's okay. I understand, it's always hard to lose someone who was so close to you, but it will get better. I promise."

"What do you know," Casey sniffed.
"You never had a soulmate. My grandma, she was the only one who was able to understand. She did love me just like a was. I always was a loner, I never had friends, even my parents don't care much about me. My dad called my the 'biggest disappointment of his life' once.

My grammy, though, there was this special bond between us. With her, I felt strong. Now I'm lost. I don't even know how to fulfil her last wish."

"The milk?"

"Where do you ..."
Casey looked surprised first, then he remembered.
"Oh, the mark. The milk is for the kitties. She had three of them. My mom hates cats, she won't allow me to bring them home."

He sniffed again. And suddenly everything fell into place as if this was the moment Zeke had always waited for.

"I like kitties," he said.

Casey frowned.
"What do you mean?"

Zeke smiled at him.
"I will take care of them. I also will have a look at you now and then if you let this happen."

"Why should you? You care about no one but yourself."

"Don't ask me about this."
Zeke grabbed for Casey's arm and pulled him to the parking lot.
"C'mon, let us have a look at the kitties. I guess, they are already waiting for their milk."

He knew, it was too early to tell him the truth: that Casey was the one he had always been waiting for. The only one who could be his soulmate.

Oh I looooove this!!! What a wonderful story.
Zeke is more understanding that Casey expects... I'm sure they will love the kitties and take very good care of them (and of each other, too).

Thank you. It seems as if Casey's future won't as dark as he thinks it will be. Losing a soulmate is hard but it doesn't mean that there is no hope that one day you will find another one.

Aw, this is so sweet. Love it!

Thanks. Poor Casey, he has to go through some hard times but with Zeke's help he will be able to move on.

This made me very happy. Poor Casey, he's sad now, but Zeke will be able to help him heal from his loss.

A loss like this is always hard, but Zeke will find a way to make Casey happy again.
