You sit in the middle of the black leather couch, tense figures on either side of you. You sip from the cup of coffee you've brought in with you; it's overly sweet and only lukewarm, the syrup of the flavour shot coating the inside of your cheeks.

"A pair of golden carp is used in several cultures to symbolize love, partnership, renewal, and abundance,"

The red-sweatered man in front of you pushes up his glasses, tapping away at the keyboard in front of him,

"Yet it's nearly unheard of to have three people within a soulmate partnership."

You never imagined you'd have to actually go to soulmate counselling, yet here you sit.

"But you're sure my tattoo matches with both of theirs?"

The three of you place your left wrists on the table once more, but he hardly gives a glance before responding,

"I've seen cases of three soulmates before, but there has never been a case of a tattoo split in half like this, yet matching another perfectly when put together. I'm still astonished the three of you found each other in the first place."

You've seen the markings thousands of times, but there's no denying it-- putting Tanaka's and Yamamoto's tattoos together creates the image of a carp exactly like yours, down to every scale and minute detail.

You've constantly been advised that tattoos between soulmate pairs are so distinctly different, that there's no chance of you ever finding someone with a marking that resembles anything close to yours-- unless they were your soulmate, of course.

Taketora sees your knitted eyebrows and frustrated pout, and gives you a quick elbow to snap you out of it,

"Yo, (Y/N). No sweat, we'll get to the bottom of this. Okay?"

You look up, suddenly wondering why you were even worried in the first place. Maybe not so much worried as you are curious, but concerned, nonetheless. Would your friends see you as weird? And what about your parents?

On your other side, Tanaka squeezes your hand in reassurance.

It's going to be okay, you think, as long as I've got these two.

"I've... I've seen a similar case happen before, though the tattoos formed an evenly dispersed group of three. However, a different theory comes to mind. And it's not a very rational one, either."

The three of you lean forward in anticipation, taking one last shot at visiting a "soulmate expert"-- you have no idea what degree you need to get to become one, honestly-- but your friend recommended him, at least. The abundance of strange plants, hopefully fake skulls, and mystic decorations against saffron walls in the room don't help your skepticism, however.

"Some otherworldly theories propose... the reincarnation of soulmates. Those that find each other lifetime, after lifetime, though they may never realize it."

Your eyebrows furrow and you grit your teeth in thought. Is he implying that the three of you have experienced this in before? You shake your head. Now you're believing in his weird, supernatural theories.

"And there may be times where a soul splits."

You glance between the two boys, now noting their similarities more than ever-- you can't believe you're actually considering this guy's words, but oddly enough, it's the most plausible theory you've encountered so far.

Your eyes go wide,

"Y-you're not saying what I think you're saying, are you?!"

"Dude, are we..."

"... the same person?"

The two high-five with a resounding cheer, and relief washes over you like a tidal wave in the form of an ear-to-ear grin. Even the counsellor in front of you joins in with a slight laugh, and he says something about his theory not necessarily being completely true, but at this point, you don't care.

Somehow, you start to believe that some things are just meant to happen.

Sure, there are times that you doubt whether you belong in this relationship.

"Ryu, pass me the damn screws."
"Huuuuuh? You literally asked for them a second ago."
"And I gave them back to you!"

And you always wonder if you're the odd one out.

"Did... did we just build the whole thing upside down?"
"Goddamit, Take! I literally told you we shouldn't have started from there!"
"No, I told you it was a bad idea to buy an Ikea chair in the first place!"

Is a relationship so rare even possible?

"Boys... you know you just have to flip it so it's right side up, right?"
"(Y/N), you're the best!"
"(Y/N), I don't know what we'd do without you!"
"... I know."

But at the end of the day, something tells you that you simply belong.

As part of my Flavour Requests.

I will admit this was difficult to write, so thank you for requesting as it really made me think! I struggled to come up with a theme and I think most of it is reader being a bit anxious having two soulmates (even though it's technically one) and feeling like their tattoos match and hers doesn't as much but slowly she comes to terms with it the more she realizes they're both there for her and the kind of people she wants in her life! The flavour themes were a little more difficult to place in there so it's more the feelings I got from both if that makes sense? Molasses being slow and sweet, and saffron being rare and valuable?

Anyway, let me know what you think.

Enjoy! <3

Come On, City Boys
