Old Friends New Life (Completed)

Hello, my name is Ruby. I was best friends with Liam all throughout secondary school. Yes, THE Liam Payne. When he left at the end of year 11 to audition for X-Factor again I supported him fully. We stayed in contact for a while but in the end just kind of drifted. We haven't contacted in a year and let alone seen each other in nearly 2. Fancy running into him on the night I ran away of all nights. You see my dad died of cancer but I never told Liam. My mum was depressed and when Anthony came along he was really nice. Mum was so masked by their 'love' that she didn't listen when I told her of all the abuse he gave me. Things didn't help when he got her pregnant. I decided to run away in the end. That was enough, I couldn't cope with anything anymore. I went to the river and was standing on the bridge, about to jump...


2. Meeting The Boys

The stares were kind of creepy but I didn't mind too much since I had Liam. Louis had gone to sit next to the curly haired boy I had met earlier when trying to leave, and then on another couch sat the other two boys. One had blond hair spike up a little and the other had black hair put up into a quiff. They were all handsome but not like Liam was. They appeared to be wearing what they would wear for bed, seeming as it was now 1am. Louis wearing a onesie for some reason, the blonde one in a wite T- shirt and boxers, the black haired one in just pajama bottoms and the curly haired one in just boxers. They all seemed to snap out of it and turned their attention to my face instead of my legs and arms. Then, one by one, they started to introduce themselves.

"Hello, my name is Harry. It's nice to meet you." The curly haired boy intruduced himself. He looked around 18/19 like Liam, and stuck his hand out to shake, but instead I got up and pulled him into a light hug. He was shocked at first but I felt him smile and gently wrap his own arms around my slight body.

"Ruby." I said quietly, turning a little shy again. We both smiled at each other and I sat on Liam's lap, gaining confidence now.

"My name is Zayn. It is a pleasure to meet you love." The guy with the black quiff said. I gave him a small hug and his arms were replaced by the blonde haired boy. I giggled a little and he squeezed me gently, picking me up and spinning me around in a small circle. I started to laugh properly for the first time in ages and he finally put me down with a big grin plastered on his face.

"Niall." he said and pinted to himself. We both burst out laughing and the other boys just looked at us confused. I think me and him were going to be good friends. Niall had a slight Irish accent that really suited him. When we calmed down I sat back down next to Liam and rested my head on his shoulder, letting a yawn escape me. Liam chuckled and turned around to face me.

"Tired?" I nodded. "We're going to bed, you know where your rooms are. Night guys." We said good night to all the boys and Liam carried me upstairs and into his room. He had a double bed and laid me down on it, sliding the covers over my body. He was about to walk away but I caught his wrist as he turned.

"Stay. Please?" His expression softened and he nodded at me, sliding in next to me under the covers. I turned and put my head on his chest and he wrapped his arms around my waist. We layed there silent for a minute and I kept moving around in his arms so he started to sing gently to calm me down. My breathing slowed and he kissed my forhead and carried on.

"Your hand fits in mine like it's made just for me

But bear this in mind it was meant to be

And I'm joining up the dots with the freckles on your cheeks

And it all makes sense to me


I know you've never loved the crinkles by your eyes

When you smile you've never loved your stomach or your thighs

The dimples in your back at the bottom of your spine

But I love them endlessly"

And with that I fell into a deep peaceful sleep for a long time in ages. I had my best friend back and everything was going to be okay. If only he knew how I really felt...


Liam's P.O.V.

Ruby was laying in my arms, snoring lightly after I sung her to sleep. Seeing her face as she slept she looked so peaceful and happy. Such a contrast to just a few hours earlier she was going to take her own life. It killed me to know she was going to do that. If I hadn't have come back when I had, If I hadn't have decided to take a walk to get away from the boys for a while, she wouldn't be here. My heart literally broke at the thought of a world without my best friend.

I lay in bed looking at the ceiling thinking, feeling her warmth safe in my arms. It was like she belonged there. We hadn't actually contacted in like 2 years. I knew it was my fault. I had been put with the boys in the band and my life just went crazy. I was always doing something and any free moment I called and texted my family. I felt bad that I had completely forgotten to my best friend who I had left behind to cope with the bullies on her own and was always there for me. She was the one that actually encouraged me to go for it. How could I have been such a dic*? When I got my new number I took it as an opportunity to finally text her more, but she never replied. I kept trying but she just ignored me. I hated that I had lost my best friend I had ever had, just because I couldn't take 5 seconds out of my bust schedule every day to send her a text.

When we caught up and she told me everything I was so shocked. I never knew her dad had died of cancer a few months after I left. Hell I didn't even know he HAD cancer. Then the fact that her mum found a new man so soon must have driven her absolutely mad. And I wasn't there to help her. She told me all about Anthony and how he would beat her up. I had cried at that, I couldn't help it, and what made it so much worse was that the proof was all over her body, and some of it would never go away. Every day I would have to see the scars written all over her and know that I was the reason that they happened. The worst part was yet to come though. Anthony took her virginity and I was disgusted, out raged. The basta** took something that could never be returned. And forcefully. More tears pricked my eyes at the thought.

Her family was so nice. Her mum was so loving and listened to her every word. Her father was jolly man who was always cheerful and so protective of his daughter. She doesn't know this but once her father told me to look after her and that if she was ever to be with anyone then it should be me. At that time I thought it was weird but now the thought of being with her.... It sounded amazing. Wonderful.

To hold her in my arms like this every night.

To be able to kiss her on the lips whenever I wanted.

To be protect her and keep her safe.

To say 'I Love You' and hear her say it back.

To take her to premiers and show her off as my girlfriend.

To care for her and be the one she always came to.

My heart skiped a beat and I involuntarily kissed her hair. She smiled in her sleep and I grinned. I wanted her to be mine so badly. I had fancied her before I left and was going to ask her to prom but unfortunately I was busy with the boys. Which is hardly much of an excuse. I had this big plan thought up in my head. I was going to take her to the milkshake shop and buy her favourite, sitting in our usual spot. I was going to ask her to prom and she was going to say yes. Then on the night I was going to turn up in a suit and her in a dress looking beautiful, as always, and I would give her a red rose. We would get into a hired limo and we would rock it out to school. Then once we got there I would take her hand as she got out and guide her to the hall, stopping for the hired papp's for the school photos, and we would get a drink. The n it would come towards the end of the night and we would be slow dancing. It would be all romantic with the lights down and I would ask her to be my girlfriend. She would say yes and we would kiss and dance the night away. Perfect.

But I never got to do any of that. All because I left to join a stupid band. Don't get me wrong, I absolutely LOVE 1D but I just need some to myself sometimes you know? Be with my other friends. More specifically my best friend. Ruby was everything to me. I think I actually...love her. But all we were friends. And that's all we would ever be. If only she knew how I really felt...
