"Shall we?", Alex opens the and waits for me to pass before pulling out a sheet,the suited man has already started cleaning the room for the next unfortunate teens.
Being under 18 I still have 3 months of freedom before I am assigned a house with Alex and expected to take up permanent residence, he seems as happy as me about this.
For some reason I feel a lot more calmer now that it's all over and done with, he seems a nice enough boy and now that were out in the light it's apparent that he's quite a looker too.
"So for the next 3 months we've been assigned to meet every Wednesday and Friday, that sounds ok to me", he seems to have cheered up and gained his tongue.
"Do you think that's ok Clover?", he smiles softly.
"Yeah, I suppose it's better than I thought, at least we have time to get to know each other before were stuck for life", I say laughing, he look at me with his arms folded.
"So you don't want to be stuck with me?, fine, run along, bye bye", he stomps of in the opposite direction we came in.
"Alex come back!" I shout, a camera turns to face me from one of the doors, that must have been a little loud.
pulling on his arm, he turns around, eyes shining with laughter, "I'm a great actor aren't I", he laughs and I punch him, "your going to be a piece of work that's for sure".
"Anyway, we're going to try to be friends aren't we?, that would make the situation easier for both of us and we do have matching personalities remember", he winks and I can't help but laugh, "that's what they say".
When your born, a sample of blood is taken and stored away until pairing day, it is then tested and marked against all the others In your group, leaving you with the closest match to your personal data, this is where the "soulmate" theory came from.
"Do you believe that shit?", I role my eyes.
"I'd like to", he smiles.
We exchange phone numbers and part.
"I'll see you at the Solom building Wednesday then, text me if you like", he waves as I leave.
"Hey Alex..", I turn back to face him, "yeah?" He looks confused.
"Call me Clove".
