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

8. Tired Of Playing Games

"Ruby? You awake?"

I blinked a few times before finally being able to see my room.

"Hey there, sleeping beauty."

Red smiled down at me, a smile reserved for Zayn, and stroked my fringe away from my face, kissing my forehead.

"Red patched you up."

I saw Harry in the corner, his face even paler, his eyes wide and worried. The very sight of it tugged on my heart.

Oh Harry. I'm so sorry.

I wanted so very badly to say those words, but somehow they died before they reached my lips. Collapsed on my tongue and slid away.

"Thanks." I muttered, attempting to sit up. Pain shot up my arm and I gasped, falling back down.

"Ow." I whimpered, looking down at my arm.

Red laughed.

"A Cassidy saying 'ow'. Holy shit, I think I've passed out and gone to a different planet."

I tried to laugh, but it hurt my chest.

"Where the fuck did I get shot?" I remembered some of last night. Just cos' I'm a telepath, doesn't mean I  have a good memory.

I looked down at my body, and Red pulled back the blanket to reveal a bandage on my right calf, some sort of tourniquet on my thigh and another bandage on the top of my right arm.

"What the. . . ?"

Harry sighed. I noticed he was sitting on the edge of my rocking chair with his legs spread wide, his elbows propped up on his thighs and his hands clasped together between his knees.

The shadows beneath his eyes had darkened.

"He stayed up all night to see if you were okay. So did I. And to re-do the bandages."

"Thanks. I mean it. You didn't have to do-"

Harry cut me off, his face twisted into an angry expression.

"Yes, we did! Don't you see, Ruby? I had to stay up all night, I had to keep an eye on you, and I had to make sure you were okay! Do you want to know why?"

I didn't say anything.

He flew into a rage.

"Because we got shot at last night! You nearly died! I bet you just don't care. Or maybe you enjoyed putting our lives at risk because that's what you do! You destroy people, Ruby! You wear them down, bring their hopes up them kick them to the dirt by putting their lives in danger! If you hadn't've interupted that night, I would've killed him! None of this would've happened! I WOULDN'T HAVE MET YOU!"

Those last words tore through me. Each word like a dagger in my heart. Red's hand flew to her mouth and then she composed herself and growled with fury, knashing her teeth at Harry. She reminded me of a dog.

And a very pissed off one at that.

"Harry! GET OUT. NOW." she hissed, her fists clenched. I looked up at him and watched as he scowled at the both of us and marched out the room. I watched him leave, torn and broken. Angry and hurt.

Well I was too.

I bit my trembling lower lip and took a deep breath.

And then, for the first time since I was merely a child, I cried.
