Ruby ღ

I'm not a bitch,
I'm not a slut,
I'm not a whore,
And I sure as hell ain't yours.
So go ahead and do yourself a favour:
Don't believe the rumours you hear about me.

Survival 101 - You're as good as dead if you try to get into my pants.

(Sequel to 'Red ♥')
Many thanks to: J.K Pansear (Kammy), kelsea (Briella), Musical Megster (Megan) - Love you all guys, thank you ♥ xoxo ~Patch


19. Pool Party

"You're a real problem child, Ruby."

"I know," I sighed "but I couldn't tell him the truth. I wiped his memory for a reason."

I heard Niall 'hmmph'.

"About that, you can't see him. Something might trigger his memory, and we don't want him going through all that."

I allowed myself one selfish thought:

What about the things I'm going through? Don't I matter?


"I'm here. But, Niall. . . I want to see him. He doesn't have to know it's me and I guarentee he won't recognise me! Please, Niall. We've been through too much to be apart."

And it was true, we had been through far too much. Which was why things were as they were. But I wanted to see him, to satisfy my own selfish needs. I wanted to watch him from a distance, make sure he was happy whoever he was with. Yes, I'd be jealous. I'd probably breaking something I would be so riled up, but all that mattered was Harry. As long as he was happy. And I didn't think he would want a drained, slightly confused girlfriend after I had sucked all the metal energy out of her. Besides, those days were over. Hopefully.

"Fine. I'll pretend to be your boyfriend." Niall murmered, defeated. I faught back the urge to yelp with joy, thinking that he would take it the wrong way.

However, I did smack a kiss onto the phone, and he chuckled.

"Thank you so much! You're brilliant, Niall, truly brilliant!" I shrieked with happiness and did a little dance on my bed. I know it was my fault he didn't remember me, and I still stick to keeping that the way it is, but it won't hurt if I see him undercover, will it? Surely he'd be fine. And he'd move on - unlike me.

"Ruby? We're having a pool party in one of the courtyside houses, if you wanted to come, you could. Being my girlfriend 'nd all, it'd be better if you came."

"Don't you mean mansion? House is a little underexaggerated. It's practically a castle."

He laughed, a cute little laugh.

"I wouldn't go that far. So, are you coming or not?"

"Well, yes. I wouldn't pass up an oppertunity to go to a sexy mansion with a huge pool in the back yard! I'll be there in fifteen minutes. Ten if I don't wear those bloody sandals."

And with that, I hung up.

After changing into jean shorts and a pink crop-top (with a blue bikini underneath), I slipped on a pair of trainers and sped out my house. Not to see Niall. Or the pool.

Just to see Harry.




Harry's P.O.V:

"I'm not going in." Zayn pouted, his lower lip jutting out mockingly. I rolled my eyes from behind his, splayed a hand on his back and shoved him into the pool, the rest of the boys barking with laughter. I grinned and cannon-balled into the pool, splashing them as I did. They joined me soon after, along with Briella, Kammy and Red. Liam and Briella were dating, as were Kammy and Louis. It was the same with Zayn and Red. We sat in the pool together, laughing and chatting and eating pizza Niall had ordered. The sky was a perfect pastel blue, free of clouds and the sun was blazing onto the countryside.

When Niall's phone buzzed, he climbed out of the water, the sun beaming onto his back making the droplets look like crystals. Then he ran inside, and I heard a door open. Seconds later, the back door opened and Alex stepped out in shorts and a shirt, cropped short so you could see her tanned, flat belly.

"Nice legs." Zayn yelled, and Alex blushed, grinning.

"You never used to wear shorts." Niall commented. Alex shrugged and said she fancied a change. Besides, it was summer.

"Want some pizza?" Louis offered. She nodded, before unbuttoning her shorts and slipping them off revealing a tuquoise bikini underneath. Then she took off her top and, well, I'll just say the boys could've easily dumped any girl for the size of her chest. And she had curves in all the right places. She glanced at Red, her eyes widening. Red did look pretty run-down. Her eyes were not so sparkling, no longer sparked with mischief. Her face was slightly pale, not a sign of the dimples Zayn seemed to adore. She had told us about her miscarriage, and Zayn reacted the worst. He wouldn't eat or sleep or do anything anymore. He simple functioned on a day-to-day basis. Red was the same. But now, a little bright light seemed to go on in Red's mind, and Alex smiled shyly at her.

"Hey, Red." she murmered, before sliding elegantly into the pool, running a hand through her soft straight hair.

"Alex?" I had finally found my voice, and in doing so, I was extremely pissed off. How could she not tell me?! How could Niall not tell me?!

"Oh, um. Hey, Harry."

"So you're Niall's girlfriend, Ruby, and you're Cafe Girl Alex too? Care to explain?"

She started to speak, but Niall cut in, quick as a flash.

"It's her nickname. Ruby, I mean. Because her surname is Ruby. Alex Ruby."

Sounded plausable. I nodded and noticed the tension leave the atmosphere immediately. After ten minutes of swimming about, Liam turned the music on and turned it up loud. Because there were no neighbours, we didn't have to worry about the volume. So, with Sean Paul playing loud on the CD Player, we began to chat to eachother animatedly, scoffing down pizza and laughing and splashing eachother.

After a while of mingling, we all gathered in a big circle in the pool, baking under the sun. Liam's arms were slightly burnt and Zayn had put on his 'sexy shades'.

"So, how did you and Alex meet?" I asked Niall, folding my arms behind my head. The air didn't stiffen, and we were still in the same relaxed positions.

"Well, it was pretty cute actually. R- Alex was working in a cafe and I was eating their, as per usual. She came over with a cup of coffe and spilt it all over my crotch. It burnt like hell." He smiled indulgently at Alex and she smiled tightly.

"It was love at first sight." Alex sighed, but never smiled. Like it was something she'd rehursed too many times.

"Yep." Niall agreed, grabbing a bottle of beer from behind him on the ledge of the pool and taking a swig.

"Anyone fancy getting pissed? I know I do." Red got another ice cold pack of beer from the edges of the pool and shared them out, Alex taking one gratefully. I couldn't take my eyes off her.

"Alex?" I asked, and she turned, smiling.

"Yes, Harry?" There it was again. My name, so soft and so rare on her lips.

"Tell me something. . ." I didn't know if I should even ask her. All Hell could break loose if I did. On the other hand, I'd satisfy my burning curiosity.

"Alright. Anything." She looked so earnest, so happy that I was talking to her.

I wish I would have recorded her reaction on camera, because I've never seen so much fear in a girls eyes.

"Why is my name tattooed on your foot?"










A.N: Okay, okay, my heart is racing! By some miracle, this idea came to me that he should find the tattoo. It's Chapter 19, people! And the first Movella 'Red' ended at Chapter 20. Vote if in the comments if you'd like it to continue past Chapter 20 (because I didn't ask you when I wrote 'Red'). Love you guys, thanks for everything :) xoxo ~ Patch
