Nicky and Joe were never particularly concerned about what their forged papers said, beyond having to memorize the biographical details about whatever their current assumed identity was. For the vast majority of their lives they had never actually known their ‘real’ dates of birth anyway.
[an AU where your soulmate’s mark appears on your body once a year, on the day they were born]
For most people, the Sentence on the back of your neck is the first thing your soulmate will ever say to you. However, for an unlucky few, those words will actually be spoken by your worst enemy. Nicolo's Sentence is in Arabic letters. Yusuf's Sentence is written with Latin letters. What were they supposed to think?
There, in black ink, stood a name in clean, tall Latin letters.
Yusuf swallowed. The name felt heavy on his tongue, and his heart skipped a beat.
“Ah,” Yusuf’s baba said solemnly. “I think it is safe to assume that your worst enemy goes by the name of Nicolò. I will pray to Allah that he may merely be someone you meet on a trade trip across the sea, and that this name does not forebode anything more sinister.”
Yusuf nodded, and he let his baba turn over his right arm carefully towards the light, so they could read the name written there.
“Now, my son,” Yusuf’s baba said in a joyful tone, “let us see if we know your beautiful soulmate already, or if you will have to be patient a little longer.”
The rosy light of dawn crept through the windows, and neither his baba nor Yusuf had any trouble reading his Mark. For on Yusuf’s right arm, in the same bold black letters, stood the name again.
Or, Yusuf is confused by the soulmarks on his arm. He is even more confused when he notices Nicolò's arms.
