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...


19. Personal Drama

Ruby's P.O.V.


"I HOPPED OFF THE PLANE AT LAX!" I was awoken at goodness knows what hour, by Louis singing in my ear. I tried to swat him away but failed miserably. He continued to sing... "AND THE JAY-Z SONG WAS ON! SO I PUT MY HANDS UP!" urgh, I was going to kill him. I checked the clock and it read 5am. Louis should know better than to wake a 19 weeks pregnant woman up, let alone at 5am! "MOVING MY HIPS LIKE YEAH!" Liam rolled over and threw a pillow at him but he just dodged it and carried on. At this point I was at the brink of tears. Stupid hormones. "IT'S A PARTY IN THE USA!" And at this point I broke down. Sobs racked my body and immediately Liam sat up and gathered me in his arms, rocking me gently

"You twat Louis! Look what you did!" Louis was silent as Liam yelled at him and I scrambled out of his grip and down the tour bus stairs to find Zayn. He was in the kitchen making cereal. I went up to him and buried myself in his chest with my arms around him.

"Woah, what's wrong munchkin?" He asked using his nickname he gave me, and wrapping his arms around me after the initial shock. I smiled a little but just shook my head as I cried into his pajama top. "Is it just the early time?" I shrugged my shoudlers and he sighed before rocking side to side, spinning me around at one point. I giggled a little and wiped my face with my free hand. He then proceeded to sing and we swirled around the tiny kitchen, both of us laughing. As we came to a stop, we saw Liam and Louis watching us from the doorway, Louis looked amused and Liam slightly amazed. I went over to Louis and gave him a hug. He immediately returned it.

"I'm sorry" we both said at the same time and laughed. Liam just shook his head and started to make some coffee and hot chocolate. The hot chocolate for me as I wasn't supposed to have a lot of coffee.

"So the plane is in like an hour so we have to leave in half an hour as it wil take around 15 minutes to get through security and stuff." We all just nodded, sipping on our drinks and making our way to the living area. Around 10 minutes past and everyone was up and downstairs, if a little tired. I decided I should go and get dressed as it would take me longer, so Liam helped me up the bus' stairs and lead me over to the closet. I picked out some sweats and a flowy top that was comfy for a 12 hour plane flight. Liam helped get them on and chose some sweats and a short sleeved white shirt for himself before we both slipped on a pair of TOMS. "Are we going to find out the sex of the baby next week?" Liam asked as he helped me back down the stairs.

"I personally don't want to..." I whispered as we sat down with Louis and Zayn as we waited for everyone else.

"So then we don't." Liam smiled at me and kissed me lightly on the lips. He then placed a hand on my bump and one around my waist as I leant my head on his shoulder. "Around half way." He murmered and I smiled. As soon as everyone was ready and hyped up from coffee, we made our way through security and sat in the waiting chairs in the private part of the airport, waiting for our plane to be called. My head was resting on Liam's shoulder and I had Bella next to me with Niall next to her, and opposite was Shelby with Louis next to her, facing Bella and on her other side was Harry then finally Zayn was sat on the end oppsoite Niall. We were all laughing about something Louis said when I felt something in my stomach. My hand flew to my bump from Liam's grasp and an 'Ooh' sound escaped my lips. "You okay? What's wrong?" Liam turned to face me and it happened again. I smiled as a realisation hit me.

"The baby kicked." I smiled and took Liam's hand in mine, placing it where I felt it kick. It happened again and a huge frin formed on his face, like a 5 year old on Christmas day. His other hand moved so they were both on my stomach and he knelt in front of me as everyone else watched. I put one of my hands on his and we waited. "It kicked more when you said something." I told Liam and he smiled even wider - if that were possible.

"Hey baby, you going to be a footballer when you grow up?" He asked my bump and it kicked twice more. "Oh my gosh, I can't believe it kicked!" At that point, everyone crowded round and started to feel my belly. Liam returned to his seat and the baby kicked for everyone. Show off, I thought. I told Liam and he laughed, agreeing with me. Finally our flight was called and me and Liam held hands as we walked down the hallway. My phone buzzed in my pocket so I fished it out and opened it. A picture message from an unknown number...

I stopped and opened the message as Liam stopped and looked at me confused. All of a sudden a picture of a new born baby popped up and filled the screen with the caption underneath reading,

"You new little sister - Mum xx"

I nearly fainted. I couldn't believe it. For starters how had she got my number? Had I really been gone that long as well? The baby looked quite small. Maybe it's premature? Why would mum tell me?All these thought ran through my mind and my balance became shaky as I rocked back and forth on my feet. Liam noticed just in time and caught me under the arms as I went backwards.

"Hey, hey. C'mon it's okay. Stand up babe c'mon. I found my footing but Liam still kept his arm firmly around my waist as we slowly made our way on the plane. I was in auto-pilot (No pun intended) and everything I did was just automatic. I wasn't really thinking straight. All that was in my mind was the picture of the baby and the fact that it was my sister. I was a big sister. Had the idiot of a father stayed put? Was the baby safe? "What happened? What was that message?" Liam asked we took our seats in first class. Instead of answering him I just handed him my phone. He unlocked it and looked at the message. I heard him take a sharp intake of breath put I just looked down at my stomach, stroking my bump with my hands to stop myself crying. Liam tried to take my hands but I pulled away.

"No Liam." I said and went to swap seats with Harry so I could sit next to Zayn. Fortunately he agreed and kissed my head on the way past me, giving me a hug. I sat down and put my seat belt on as the sign flashed and Zayn took my hand in his as the plane took off. When the sign turned off and we were flying straight, I took the belt off as it was rubbing mt stomach, making it sore.

"What happened with Liam?" Zayn asked as we both turned to face each other. So I told him everything that happened from when I nearly fainted to now. He looked a little stunned but gave me a big hug, putting the armrest down so he could, and kissed my head like Harry had done. "And how do you feel about this?" He asked me as we pulled away.

"I don't know." I answered honestly. "I can't exactly hate a little baby. It wasn't her fault anyway." Zayn nodded and I broke down in tears. Why did this have to happen to me? The only thing keeping me going right now is my baby. If I wasn't pregnant I would be gone. I can't cope anymore. In fact, maybe the baby would be better off unborn anyway, it wouldn't have to suffer by never having a true home. Constantly travelling, constantly in the public eye. "I have to go to the loo, I'll be back soon." I told Zayn. He nodded and I picked up my carry on bag, making my way to the toilet at the front, passing Liam on the way.

I sat on the lid and rubbed my stomach. I couldn't do it anymore. It kicked on my hand and tears welled in my eyes, one getting free and making its way down my cheek. I wiped it away quickly and dug around in my bag for my nail scissors. I didn't deserve to be here. I was messing up so many people's lives.

I stopped because the blood was running down my arms. I quickly snagged some toilet paper and dabbed them then gave up and stood up and just ran them under the cold water in the sink waiting for them to scab over. I watched the blood swirl around to the drain and realisation hit me. What had I just done? Why had I just done that? I panicked and my breathing became rapid. There was a banging on the door and Liam's voice.

"Ruby? Ruby?! Are you in there?! Let me in Ruby!" Liam's voice became frantic and sobs racked my body. I reached for the lock and undid it. Liam quickly came in and saw me with tears streaming down my face and virtually unable to breathe. He then saw the cuts and his eyes widened with tears prickling them. He stayed strong though and gathered me in his arms. "Okay, deep breaths Rubs, come one deep breaths." I tried to follow his instructions.

"I didn't mean to Liam. I don't know what happened I just-"

"It's okay Ruby. What's done is done. It's over yeah? Just breathe baby." He rubbed soothing circles on my back and I wrapped my arms around him, clinging for dear life. "Shhhhh." I started to breathe more normally and he let me go as he grabbed the bottle of water from my bag anf made me sit down on the toilet seat and drink it. He knelt in front of me and brushed a piece of hair back from my face. he had blood all over his white shirt and I thought about what had just happened and started to hyperventilate again. "Hey, it's okay. It won't happen again." He took off his shirt and started to dab my arms as the bleeding began to stop. "Shi* Ruby. These are deep." It was rare for Liam to swear but I wasn't concentrating on that, I was looking up and down his toned chest which I could call mine. He chuckled as he noticed me staring and stood up, kissing my forehead.

"Hey is everything oka-" Louis cut himself off as he looked in and stared at my arms and Liam's blood stained shirt.

"Louis can you get my spare shirt from my carry on bag mate?" Louis just nodded and went to get Liam's shirt. But instead just came back with the whole bag. "Thanks mate, we're fine now thanks." Louis nodded again and walked away, giving me a small smile. Liam then dug in his bag and came up with a spare navy T-shirt. "Right, I think I have a mini first aid kit in here somewhere. Ah! Got it." He wiped my arms with anit-bacterial gel and I hissed but he just carried on, kissing my head afterwards. He knelt back down and started to wrap my arms in gauze. He doesn't deserve to do this. He deserves better than me. He is probably only sticking around because I am carrying his baby. I looked at the floor like it was the most interesting thing in the world.

"Why don't you just leave, Liam?" I whispered. He was silent and I thought he hadn't heard me until he replied a couple of minutes later.

"Because you mean the world to me. I love you more than anyone in the world and I want to fix you. I think you are beautiful. Millions of girls throw themselves at me but I only see you. You are amazing and to top it off we are having a baby together. I stick around because I want to. I should be the one worrying that you will leave me. I don't deserve you. You are better than me. You deserve more than me and yet you choose me. I am the luckiest guy in the world. He finished my smashing his lips onto mine and I quickly began to kiss back. "I love you Ruby." He said as he pulled away, both of us breathing heavily. In response I just kissed him again. When we pulled away he stood up and took my hand. "Come on. Just 10 hourse left." I smiled weakly and he picked up our bags and made sure there was no trace of anything having happened before leading me back to our seats.

"I was just gonna go back to Zayn." Harry said. Liam thanked him and sat back in his seat as Harry picked up his bag and phone and went back to his seat. He saw my arms but didn't say anything, just wrapped his arms tightly around me. "I love you so much Ruby. You are like a little sister to me." I nodded and hugged him back before sitting back down in my seat next to Liam. He had put the arm rest up so I swung my legs into his lap and he wrapped an arm around my waist as I leant my head on his shoulder, facing sideways towards him. His other hand rubbed my stomach gently and the baby kicked, causing him to smile and kiss my head. My eyes began to droop and Liam threw a blanket over us before we fell asleep.
