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!)


5. "This will only hurt a little..."


I walked off stage to find Eleanor and Ruby chatting as if they had been great friends for years. They both had massive smiles plastered across their faces along with cups of coffee in their hands. I walked on by- they were really getting on and they didn’t need me interrupting them.

I crept past but I obviously wasn’t quiet enough because as soon as I thought I was out of Ruby’s and Eleanor’s range of hearing I was embraced from behind. It was Ruby. “Don’t you try running away from me Niall Horan,” She said with a giggle.

“I wasn’t running away,” I replied, “I was creeping away.”

Ruby pulled a sarcastic face at me, “I’m going to forgive you because you were so amazing tonight,”

“Really?” I asked and she just nodded.

A few moments later the rest of the boys came along, “Hey El, Ruby,” Liam called, “Are you coming to Nandos for a bite to eat?” They both nodded, “I’m not even going to ask you Niall, let’s go.”

I was about to follow until I let out a massive yawn, “actually guys,” I said, “I think I’m going to stay here and get some rest.”

Ruby was immediately worried about me, “Are you ok? It’s not like you to deny a chance to go to Nandos,”

Ruby then offered to go back to the hotel with me instead of Nandos but I denied it. Just because I was tired didn’t mean that I should ruin someone else’s night.

I closed the door of the Hotel room that Ruby and I were staying in. It was fairly big, it had pastel blue walls and wooden flooring. It was one of the nicest rooms I’d ever been given in this hotel; I was certainly asking for double rooms more often.

I got undressed and went to have a shower. The water warmed up almost immediately and I started washing myself. The room was filled with the scent of limes and lemons as I rinsed off my body. I stepped out of the shower and pulled a green towel around my waist. I was about to start brushing my teeth until I heard a loud bang coming from the bedroom. “Ruby is that you?” I called but there was no answer, just silence. Just at that second, the rooms went cold and all the lights went off. “Boys, is that you?” I shouted genuinely starting to get worried now, “if this is a joke this isn’t a very funny one.” But yet again there was no answer.  I heard a click and whizzed around, the bathroom door had been opened and now the lamp in the bedroom had been turned on. I grabbed the nearest weapon I could find which in this case, happened to be Ruby’s hairdryer. I neared the door; it was so quiet you could have heard a pin drop.

I opened the door “show yourself,” I shouted. I must have looked pretty stupid- I was standing there wearing only a towel and had a hairdryer in my hands however at that moment in time I didn’t care, I was in so scared to not care about anything other than the fear growing inside me like a monster, poisoning every part of my body.

I looked around and noticed a broken vase in the middle of the floor, apart from that no one was there. “Show yourself,” I shouted again desperately hoping that it just would be someone I knew playing a joke on me but yet again there was no answer. No movement. Nothing.

All of a sudden the lamp went off, my heart was thundering in my chest, the fear was eating me up from the inside out and I couldn’t take it anymore as it all went black…

The next thing I could remember was coming back to my senses about an hour later. It was just gone half past twelve.  I was hoping that I had just dreamt all the scary events of before up but as I was lying on the floor in the middle of the floor wearing a towel and with a hairdryer next to me a seriously doubted it….

I carried on with my night and got into bed just before 1am. I think I could remember Ruby coming but I seriously couldn’t tell.

I woke up with a gasp. It was so cold, I felt as if my feet had turned to ice. I got up and went to get a hot water bottle. I was waiting for the kettle the boil when I saw something though the shiny worktop. It was a person, a person standing right over my shoulder. I grabbed a knife and spun around but there was no one behind me. I looked back in the worktop and there he was again. It was now that I first noticed this boy did not look normal at all, his skin was like the purest snow in winter and his eyes were scarlet red. I was frozen with fear.

The next few seconds of my life went all in slow motion. I was grabbed from behind as someone put a sack over my head and I was plunged into deep darkness. I tried to scream but nothing but a wimped came out of my mouth. I was dragged over to the sofa as the sack was taken off my head. I blinked to adjust my eyes to the bright lights. It was at this moment I found myself able to escape. I ran towards the front door but it was locked along with the bedroom and bathroom door too. The boy spoke for the first time, “there is no way for you to escape.” He said in a hoarse voice. I turned around and saw that he had cornered me, there was no way for me to escape, I was going to die amd I knew it. I braced myself as he produced a small dagger out of thin air. “This will only hurt a little and after this your whole miserable life will be over…”
