"Don't you realize that we're soulmates?" Richard brushed his hand against Renee's cheek.

"What does that mean?"

"That we share the same soul!" Rick grinned, "If we're not within a 3 mile radius of each other, one of us will die!"

Renee rolled her eyes. "Are you high?!" She stepped outside the boundary.

"Don't do it!" Richard screamed.

Renee began to feel faint, and collapsed. She felt pains in her chest.

Rick ran up to Renee, and grabbed her. "Baby! Now, do you believe me?"

Renee sank to her knees, and sobbed. "I don't want this! This is a curse! I'm scared! I don't understand."

"Shhh," Richard draped his arm around her. "It's O.K. I'm preparing a place for you. It will be ready in the morning. Just sleep in the tent I set up for you, under my window. Don't be scared. My brother will watch over you tonight. Please, take my hand."

Renee hesitated briefly.

"We've been together in every life." Images flashed through Renee's mind. "We were brother-in-arms during Hiroshima. We fought side by side in the Delta Force. We even did covert operations together during the Cold War. You were even my daughter in one life. Isn't that beautiful?"

Renee's eyes flooded with tears. "Welcome home, soul partner!"
