Soulmates: Krystin and Derrick's Story

Prologue

Falling in Love.

If you really get think about it, it's a strange word. I mean, how do you really know that you love someone? So many people throughout history have thought that they were in love, but in the end it turns out that it was nothing but a crush. I mean, about 99% of the time, the love of our life, that guy that we believe that we love, turns out to be nothing.

In one scenario you find out that he has a girlfriend, and you are devastated. You swear to your friend that you will never love again. You scream and cry on the phone with your best friend, yelling about how you hate him, and how he destroyed you.

One week goes by. You find that you're crushing on the new kid in your science class. This is a never-ending cycle, it just repeats itself numerous times, and there is no end in sight.

Once in a great while, the never ending cycle of pain, lust, hurt, and betrayal does change. You may find yourself becoming extremely lucky and then you find that special someone who you are meant to be with, and your view on love changes drastically. I would even go so far as to say you find your soulmate. And you find that love is suddenly worth all of the work.

For the longest time, I have tried to figure out if I am truly in love with a man. I have asked my best friend, I would even go so far to say my only friend, how she feels about her love(I use the word love loosely) and when she described the way she felt about him, how she got all giddy and sappy when he walked past her, I ruled out love. Nah, my friend isn't in love with him.

I was getting desperate, so I asked my parents how they knew that they were in love with each other. My mother told me about how she felt happy when my father was around, and about how she only felt alive when he was near. She also told me that she felt like she was electrocuted when he touched her. Everything then clicked.

I am in love. Love doesn't seem like a big enough word for it. I do feel all of that when my, I'll use the word, LOVE walks by. I need him, and I will get him. I have too. I know, I know, I sound obsessive.

My name is Krystin Yvette Sheetta. I am 17 years old. My best friends name is Alyiah, and she is 18 years old. Krysti is the nickname that she gave me.

I am in love with Derrick Durston.

This is my story. It's not the happiest story in the world, but it does have a happy ending. My story can be dark at times, but through the whole story I never give up, I never loose faith. And you know what? The funny thing is, Derrick doesn't know what hit him!

All of this starts when I go to a party that my friend Alyiah threw. I find a book in the attic, and when I said an incantation, I become bound to Derrick. It's weird, but hey, it's the way of life....

A/N: How do you guys like it so far? I know the plot is kinda used often, but I want to try this. I'm only doing this for fun, and I'm not really expecting my story to go anywhere, but hey, I thought that I'd try just for the hell of it. The only thing that I feel that I should add is that Krystin is the class freak in school. Just about everyone hates her, and her only friends are Alyiah. Krystin does have one other friend, but he'll be introduced in the next chapter. Oh, and starting at the next chapter, you can pick what you want to happen in the chapters that come.
