A/N: Okay, so who in their right mind would start yet ANOTHER story when they already have 5 stories to take care of? Well, I'll tell you who: ME! Yes yes, I know- I'm insane.
This story was inspired by my crazy thinking... I'm actaully starting to believe it, too. And by the movie "Ever After". Remember when the prince was talking to DaVinchi? (whatever, I can't spell it) The prince was talking about two people made for eachother and about being struck by lightning and other confusing stuff... So I came up with this. Enjoy! (Jeez... that's starting to sound like something for food.)

Soul Mates
By: Jey4eva

Chapter 1: Soul Mates (yeah, I know, its the title too)

Soul mates...

Two small words that most people find amazing. How in a world with gazillion different people that speak, act, and do things differently... That in that gazillion there are two... Two people that are meant for eachother...

Some people believe in soul mates, others think its just a bunch of B.S.- Natalie Thorton didn't believe either...

I sighed thinking it was going to be a normal boring day.

You go to school, chat with your friends, spend useless hours that teachers use to try to cram just a 'tiny bit' of knowledge into your brain (of course, it doesn't work), then you come home, do the homework that was assigned to you. After that you do whatever you want- Maybe go to lessons, or practice, or just plain watch tv. Then you eat dinner, do whatever you want to do again, then you go to sleep... Then, the next day... The whole stupid routine starts over again. And y'know what? I was sick of it.

Yup, I was just plain sick of it. Other kids, well, to them, they were having the time of their lives. I mean, HELL! They're kids- They have no worries, not much responsibility, and to them they better live their lives at the fullest cause' in a few years or less for some, they weren't going to be kids anymore...

But ME! Well, I was a different story.

I mean, I usually woke up groaning and thinking this was SURELY going to be the stupidest day of life. While other kids at my high school went to games and the movies and hung out with friends- I spent the time either watching tv or going online and doing absoulutely nothing.

Then there was this talk... I heard it in the girls' bathroom as I was washing my hands. A few of the most popular girls in school walked in and started to doing their make-up.

Corinne McKee, bragged to her friends about her boyfriend and their date last night:

"Oh, I swear! He is the hottest guy ALIVE!" She raved. "He's cute, sweet, funny, and POPULAR! We spend hours on end talking about stuff! We must be soul mates!"

Soul mates? I snorted thinking about it as I drove to school. I mean, who was she kidding? She's only 17 years old and she thought the guy- Who she only went out with ONCE, is her soul mate? Uhhh, no.

You wanna know what I believe in?

I believe that people DO have soul mates, and they're out there... somewhere. They could be smack down right in front of your nose- Or they could be in a town, city, state, even in a different COUNTRY! My question is... Do you always end up with them?

I mean, SERIOUSLY... I think it pretty crazy for two people to suddenly find eachother and just KNOW that he or she is the one. There's just no way. And I think there's one in a gazillion chance that you'll end up with your soul mate.

My guess is that your soul mate is out there... But then something crazy happens, like you meet someone. And they're totally what you've been dreaming of. They're perfect. They fit up to your ideals and better yet- They seem to think the same of you... So now what happens to the soul mate? Probably the same thing.

So actually, I'm changing my mind... I don't really think there's a such thing as soul mates- Or you'd end up with them, wouldn't you. Confused? So am I.

Now THAT'S what I think. Am I right? Not likely.

I mean, the majority of people don't believe that. They believe that there is a such thing as soul mates, and you end up with them. PERIOD.

Well, FINE! They can believe whatever they want to, and I'll stick to my theory.

I sighed as I parked in my usual spot at the high school. Then I back-tracked. Okay, so what the HELL was someone else doing in MY spot? Okay, so TECHNICALLY its not my spot. But, I've been parking in it ever since I had gotten my license, and I WAS NOT about to give it up.

The ass hole that had taken my spot was still in his car. A nice car in fact- a BMW. Nice. Lovely. But that NICE car was in MY spot.

I turned off the ignition, parking my car right in back of it- Blocking its way. I got out of the car, boiling mad.

"Hey!" I shouted. The guy was in the car looking over some homework and didn't seem to hear me. I rolled my eyes. Of COURSE, how silly of me, I thought sarcastically. I stomped over to the front door and tapped on the window.

"Hey!" I shouted louder this time.

The guy turned and jumped. He pushed on a button and rolled down the window.

"Hey," he said, grinning up at me.

I didn't grin back. Sure, I was tempted to. The guy was cute, but I was intent on getting my spot back.

"You're in my spot," I said, calmly.

"Oh, I am?" He asked. He looked around, "I don't see your name on it."

I gave a sarcastic laugh, "Very funny," I said, smiling sarcastically. "But, you see- I've been parking in this spot since I got my license, and I happen to REALLY like it. So, do me a favor and MOVE?"

The guy laughed, apparently amused. "No can do, sister."

"Sister?" I asked, raising an eyebrow. What? Did this guy think I was one of those chicks that just think he's 'dreamy'? Uh-uh.

He chuckled softly, "Well, you see- In the past few minutes that I've been in this spot, I've gone quite attached to it."

I laughed sarcastically again, "You just are SO funny!" I exclaimed.

"I know," he said.

I stopped laughing and sighed, "Look, its not a big deal. I mean, can't you just go to another spot?"

"If its not a big deal, then why do you care so much?" He asked.

"I just want to keep my spot, okay?" I said.

"Even if I WANTED to, I can't," he said.

"Why not?" I demanded.

"Well, there aren't any more parking spaces open since you've wasted yours and my time. Now I've got to go," he said getting out of his car and slinging his backpack on one shoulder. "Cause' the bell's about to ring."

I opened my mouth to yell at him, but he was gone... Already making his way to the front door.

I groaned and got back in my car. I had to circle the parking lot for 10 minutes till' I could find a space... All the way in the back. So I had to run to the front doors. All the kids had already gone to their homeroom classes. I was already 20 minutes late.

I quickly got my books and rushed to homeroom class. Everyone looked up as I walked in.

"Ah, Natalie- So glad you could make the last 10 minutes of homeroom," Mr. Bakersaid, brightly. "Detention after school today. See you there."

I sighed and took a seat in the back of the room. My long-time friend, Annie gave me a sympathetic smile as I passed her.

I shook my head at her and mouthed 'I'll tell you later'.

"Awww, poor Natalie," a whisper hissed in my ear.

I turned around, 'YOU!' I mouthed.

He smiled, "Have fun at detention," he whispered.

Before I could reply the bell rang.

And it was probably just as well. I didn't think I could hold back the urge to strangle that idiot for long...

A/N: I think this is the first story that I REALLY like! Hopefully you all liked it too! Please review!
