I’m scared to tell him how I feel. // How could she ever feel the same for me? // I wish I knew what he was thinking. // If only I could see inside her mind. // Does he think about me as much as I think about him? // I didn’t know it was humanly possible to think about one girl so much.
I’m really glad I have someone like you to talk to. // It sucks that you’re going through this too, but also kind of reassuring.
I’m so lucky to have you. // I’m so happy you exist.
The journals were created by an English husband and wife team of book binders in the early twentieth century. The original purpose of the twin diaries was to make the couple feel connected when the husband went to fight in World War I. After three years of the husband and wife writing to each other, the husband came home and the journals were put away in their attic. After the couple passed away, the journals were sold in an estate sale to a traveller who purchased them for her niece. The niece and her best friend wrote in them until the late sixties when they were lost in a park in D.C. From there, both journals were picked up by an old man who brought them back to his home in Australia for his wife to write in. They were used by the wife until she passed away, and were then hidden in her son’s attic until they were sold in a garage sale by the son. By this time, it was September of the year 2013. The first journal, originally belonging to the English wife, was purchased for three dollars by a young girl, who thought it would be the perfect gift for her best friend’s seventeenth birthday. The second journal, which belonged to the English husband, was purchased by a worried mother who thought her son, also seventeen, needed somewhere to vent his thoughts.
Of course, these journals were not ordinary. They’ve been written in since 1915, but appear blank each time someone new opened the cover. The only words that ever remained were the ones penned on the inside cover by the original owners.
Distant or close, near or far;
We shall be together,
Wherever we are.
Early or late, young or old;
I will always be yours,
To have and to hold.
Now, almost a hundred years later, their original purpose is being renewed—to bring two people closer.
An AU in which old spirits love playing matchmaker, journals rewrite themselves, and people discover that no one truly knows anyone.

If you've read my stories before, you'd know I have a bad habit of starting stories then not finishing them and starting others.
As you can see, by this new story, it's a habit I have yet to break.
Long story short, I went away to a family reunion thing and had no wifi, so this happened.
I don't know what I think of it yet or if I even like it yet so I just thought I'd post it to see what you think.
