" "This," I say slowly, as I follow my blood's desire and go even closer to him. Ignoring the disgust and revulsion that ripples through my mind at even touching him. "Means," I whisper as I tilt my face up and he tilts his down. Disbelief written all over his face. I doubt a girl has ever made the first move.
"Nothing." And I roll on to my tip-toes and kiss him, wrapping my arms around his broad frame and up to his neck, bringing him down closer to me.
And holy shit is he a great kisser. "
Juliette and her family are different. Very different. Each of them have powers - curses - and a soul mate out there, somewhere in the world. Nobody in Juliette's family have found their soul mate, but Juliette's not giving up hope.
Heath and his family are different too, different just like Juliette's. He thinks his family are full of monsters, but with his curse, he thinks he's the biggest monster of all.
Heath and Jules have hated each other their whole lives, their families being bitter, old enemies, so when they find themselves in the same town, going to the same school, they think the world will end. That is, until they find out who their soul mates are...
This part is a little dramatic, but explains a lot and if you find it confusing, don't worry, it's explained later on. I wanted to write a book with an unrealistic storyline but realistic characters that I hope you either love or hate. As you'll realise love and hate are key to this story.
Hope you enjoy! :)
The Blood Clanns were created in the Beginning. Four families of sorts. They were created before names were invented. There was no specific reason as to why we created them, no purpose or divine occupation, but they were created anyway.
As time passed they were eventually given names. The Warrens. The Cross'. The Hayes'. The Sorens. The first Warrens were all exceptionally tall, lean people. With black hair and grey eyes. But over time they're blood diluted, features changing and yet remaining the same. The Cross' were a red haired family, a huge Clann with relatives everywhere and the largest Clann. The Hayes' were designed purely for our amusement. To see what it would be like to see blood that colour. To see the effect it could have, and it had a very big effect. The Hayes' were a dark haired Clann, every generation was, and they were all twisted in their own ways. All having dark aura's and personalities. And the Soren's were their counterparts. We wanted to see what it would be like to have blood so light. To see a family, a Clann, made in light. The Sorens were all golden skinned males - always males - with golden hair and blue eyes. It didn't matter what colour their mother's eyes or hair were, the boys were always born with blonde hair and blue eyes. They were all made to be good and bright. The complete opposites to the Hayes. And they were always boys, which was why, eventually, they came to be known as the Brotherhood.
The Clanns were forbidden from coming together, a law passed by the first Bloods. It was seen as incest to even consider being with another person from a Clann, even though they weren't related. If you were in a Clann, you couldn't be romantic with anybody else in a Clann, and why would you want to be? We had given them their fates.
They're Blood Bounds.
Every Blood had a type of blood, a special kind, different from the humans. And then they were given a destiny. They were destined to be with somebody. A soul mate. And it had always been someone who was not in a Clann. But there was something darker to the Blood Clanns. Something else we had given them. Wondering if the small part of humanity that was inside of them could deal with what we had given them. We had cursed them with super-human abilities.
But we had told the first Bloods that the Clanns would bind together one day. The first Bloods were panicked, deciding to split up, be free of the other Clanns to keep themselves pure. They passed down the warning. That a boy and girl from each Clann would be Bound to another Clann, that their soul mate would be someone from another Clann, but as the Sorens were all male, the Clanns eventually forgot about our warning. Eventually, the warning became a story and then the whispers started fading, the story no longer being told from father to son, or only on rare occasions. They had forgotten about the Binding of the Clanns, as it was impossible, their soul mates, their Blood Bounds, were always isolated people. People with human families and human lives, but who were special and didn't know it, until they found their Blood Bound. They eventually forgot about the Binding of the Clanns.
And about us.
And so the Clanns all grew up and multiplied, keeping in contact with each other over the millenia. As a Blood died their curse was taken from them and given to a Blood baby, waiting for their soul mate. Over the centuries the Blood Clanns were given many names. Demigods. Demons. Angels. Witches. Superheroes. Anything thought of by the humans.
The Clanns were all amiable, but all harbored mistrust towards the Hayes Clann. Always whispering of them and designing songs and lullabies. But there was one, one that was spread like wildfire throughout all the Clanns about every Clann.
"Cut a Cross and see it thick,
Wound a Warren and the blood'll be slick,
Hack a Hayes and writhe in Darkness...
Slash a Soren and witness Brightness."
