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...


5. The Secret Room Part 2

Liam's P.O.V.

I had spent the whole day preparing for taking Ruby out tonight. I felt bad about leaving her and I was really worried something would happen or she would do something, but I knew I had to trust her. Still, she did try to take her own life just a couple of days ago. That scared me. Surely a person couldn't change that quickly could they? Go from being so depressed they want to end their life one day to so happy they can be left alone in a house for hours just wondering around and being safe, could they?

I wasn't just going to ask Ruby to be my girlfriend tonight. I was going to ask her to come on tour with us in a couple of days time. I had had a call from Simon telling us that the world tour was to be started for TMH a few weeks early. (A/N I know nothing about the TMH world tour so any place they go and when probably won't be right so don't hold it against me please. Thanks) First we were to fly out to America then Canada and then we are to fly all the way to Australia and New Zealand working our way back round to Europe and finally England again. It will be a gruelling 10 months but worth it for the fans. Anyway, I want Ruby to come and Simon said it was fine, because hopefully for one, she will be my girlfriend, and also because I can't leave her. Not only because I don't fully trust her and I don't think she will cope wihout me, but because I don't think I will cope without her. I never realised until now how much I really did miss her. I guess I just pushed the feeling away and got on with things but not anymore. I have her back. Finally.

I am so nervous yet in a weird way I am so excited as well. I have been waiting forever to do this. Well, you get the gist. I arrived back home and couldn't find Rub's anywhere. All the boys went off to do whatever as I went upstairs. I looked in the bathroom where the door was ajar, and she wasn't there.  Next I checked ours, and all the boys rooms before comind to a stop outside of the wooden door in the corner. They boys had never gone in there, it was kind of an unspoken agreement between us. They live in my house and make themselves at home for free, they just don't go in that room. I could hear slight sobbing coming from behind the door and opened it quietly to see Ruby with her back turned to me. She appeared to be laughing and crying at the same time at all the pictures covering the wall.

When I had first moved into this house, I had spent several weeks sleeping in this room. I had printed out and found lots of photographs of Ruby and Ruby and me, and had stuck them all to the wall. A massive collage. There was one that her friend had sent me whilst I was on tour with the boys for X-Factor, where Ruby is in her prom dress. For the prom that I was supposed to be taking her to.



I was stood back stage, freaking out about my first live show after the X-Factor. Me and the boys had become really close, best friends in fact. Of course, not as close as me and Ruby ever were. Tonight was the night of the prom as well. I had asked Ruby's friend to take a picture of her in her dress and send it to me.

"5 minutes boys!" a man wearing a headset, holding a clipboard, called to us. We all nodded nervously and started warming up our voices. I stopped midway as my phone buzzed in my back pocket. I typed in my password and I unlocked it to revcieve a message from and uknown number. It said it was a media message. I clicked 'open' and the screen filled with the beautiful image of Ruby in her prom dress. She was in a light blue, floor length gown with sparkly bits on the top half and little silver high-heeled shoes. Over the top she wore a light white cardigan of some sort. Weird. I could swear I could make out little marks on her neckline... bruises?, bus ignored it as I looked at her perfect dark brown curls, clipped back and up a  bit. Her make-up was flawless - not that she needed it of course - and she looked... beautiful... breathtaking... stunning.

My eyes widened at the picture on the phone and I longed to be back home and have her on my arm where she was supposed to belong, take her to prom, and kiss her as we slow-danced. It was all ruined. I was brought back to reality by Louis who clapped a hand on my shoulder, looking over me to see my phone. He whistled quietly and said,

"She's hot mate. A certain keeper. C'mon she'll be waiting when we get back." I had told them about Ruby but not the full story. They presumed that she was my girlfriend even though she wasn't, from when I told them I fancied her. I wanted to be with her so bad. I prayed to God that Louis was right though. I hoped she would be waiting for me. I just smiled at Louis, took one last look at my phone before putting back in my pocket, and took my position before running out on stage...

*End Of Flashback*


I walked up behind her and wrapped my arms around her waist. She jumped a little before I whispered in her ear,

"You weren't supposed to find this room." Complete lie. "You like it though? I did it myself." Not a complete lie. She nodded, her dark brown curls bouncing up and down with her head, turning in my arms to face me. I grinned at her adorable smile that made my knees melt. We both leaned in closer and I gently pressed my lips against hers. Sparks flew from all around and I never wanted to leave that moment. She snaked her arms around my neck and we pulled eachother closer. Our body's molded closer and it was like we were made for the other. Like two puzzle pieces fitting perfectly into one. I was going to ask her tonight, for real, and it was going to be perfect, and I was finally going to make her mine. Once and for all.... as creepy as that sounds... We both smiled and there was just one single thought running through my brain over and over. Ruby.
