Only a sick bastard wouldn’t reblog this.
These are the words that appeared on Annabeth Chase’s skin when she was just over one month old, and have remained there ever since. It’s safe to say that her parents were not best pleased; already developing an opinion of the person their daughter was going to spend her life with years before they would meet him. Her step-mother wrangled a Band-Aid onto the skin on the inside of Annabeth’s wrist, covering the two not-so-innocent words, every morning until Annabeth was thirteen and blank-point refused to let her. Her step-mother only gave up arguing when Annabeth confessed that she had been removing the Band-Aid as soon as she got to school since she was seven.
They are her soul mate’s first words to her, she has always insisted, she shouldn’t have to hide them.
And okay, they’re not the grandest of first words, but she could be far worse off. Like Justin Kelly, whose words (Do you have change for a dollar?) disappeared in seventh grade and he was left with nothing but a blank patch of skin; or Holly Abbott, who had been born with a blank wrist. Or even the many people Annabeth had met with the words Hi, Hello, or Hey on their wrist. Like, how many people do you meet for the first time and say hello to? At least hers narrows it down; she’ll definitely know when she meets her soul mate.
But it hasn’t happened yet.
