Save You Tonight

Ruby has never been popular, she had been bullied all her life until one night she decided she just couldn't take it anymore. Sitting on the riverside, She held a knife to her wrist for one last time as the depression took over. She stood up, blood dripping from her final cuts, ready to jump, but that's when Niall Horan came into her life. Can he save her before it is too late? This story is 12+

Update: as you know, in my about me section it states how I normally wrote gothic horror stories, well this may only seem like a fan-fic to you at first but really what it is is a gothic horror story with One direction in it (because I love them so much!)


13. It will be okay in the end


I ran excitedly down the hospital corridor down towards the ward where Louis, Eleanor and Amy where waiting, alive and well.

“Slow down” I heard Niall call breathlessly from behind me, but I wasn't slowing down, that was the last thing I was going to do right now, I wanted to see my friends, sooner rather than later, was that really a sin?

I walked straight up to the young nurse I had caught smoking before and started asking to see Louis, Eleanor and Amy.

“They're just getting checked over by the doctors at this moment in time,” she said. My face dropped and my smile faded and just at that moment, Niall finally caught up with me,

“Can we see them?” he asked doubtfully, obviously seeing my disappointment. My eyes looked blankly at the floor as I shook my head and he sighed.

“You'll be able to see them soon,” the nurse added on reassuringly, “but it's totally out of my power.” Just as I started loosing hope, a doctor in his white uniform stepped out into the corridor. I suddenly became more alert and so did Niall as we realised that maybe he was looking for us.

“Are you here for Louis Tomlinson?” He asked in a deep voice, we nodded before he lead us down a separate corridor and started explaining the situation to us. “Your friend is very ill,” he started as all my hopes were flushed away. How could I have been so gullible to believe that now everything was going to be ok? That Louis and Eleanor would have been home this afternoon and would have been able to spend the night together like most couples do on Valentines day? How could I have been so stupid?

“Are you still with us?” The doctor asked me, interrupting my thoughts.

“Yes,” I replied, “but please just tell me, is he ok?”

“Well,” the doctor continued, “we're sure you know that he woke up before, in that time he got to have a short conversation with Eleanor but then he crashed again and after much deliberation we decided that it was for the best that we put him back to sleep and back on life support.” The doctor stopped as I stood there speechless. After everything had seemed ok, he was now in just as bad a state as before, if not worse. I was about to reply but the doctor gave me no time to. I'm sorry I had to break this news to you.”

Then the doctor stood up and walked away, leaving us open-mouthed. I looked at Niall, tears welling up in both of our eyes.

“What are we going to do?” I asked when I could catch my breath.

Niall shook his head, “I don't know.” We stared into each others eyes for just a while longer before I fell into his arms. We just sat there holding each other, tight, for what felt like the whole of eternity.

Some time passed before I came to my senses again, still holding onto a weeping Niall, not planning to let go anytime soon. A tear fell from one of his blue orbs and landed on my neck before I removed it. I glanced at the tiny droplet on my fingertip and on doing so, in the background, I saw a pure white feather fall from the sky and landing on the frosty ground in the hospital courtyard. I looked out of the window on the other side of the corridor for a while longer. Everything was caked in a pure blanket of white, unusual for this time of year in the UK, but somehow it gave me hope. I saw snow differently than I had ever seen it before in my whole entire life, before snow meant cold, it meant higher heating bills, it meant getting stuck in traffic but now, in the whole gloom of the moment, I suddenly had a whole new view on it, a more optimistic view. It no longer meant any of the bad things I had ever thought of it and instead it brought me a new found hope. I looked at how the delicate flakes, each one unique and with their own features, swirled gracefully and landed softly on the pure white blanket of snow which covered everything in my sight. I watched as a lonely robin, its chest a ruby red shade, perched on a nearby branch and then flew off again into the distance, not fazed at all by the snowflakes pelting down harshly on its carefully crafted wings. I marvelled at how icy cold water trickled off the end of perfectly formed icicles and almost bounced off the carpeted ground. I watched as a soft, white feather looped in and out of everything in its way and then landed on a birdbath, which was coated in icing sugar. All of a sudden I had a new found hope in life. Everything that had once seemed so dark suddenly seemed so much brighter and in my discovery, I found myself smiling. I was now seeing life at a much more optimistic view, Louis wasn't going to die, he'd be home soon and even if Valentines day had been ruined this year, next year him and Eleanor would be having an extra special Valentines day and making up for missing out today.

I looked up at Niall, who was still crying pitifully, and at that same time he looked down at me. In his eyes I saw that he had lost all hope, all the happiness we had before had now disappeared. I wiped a tear that was rolling down his cheek and dried his beautiful blue eyes.

“Everything will be okay in the end,” I whispered softly in his ear, “if everything isn't okay, then it isn't the end.”
