This Is Why I Hate Uni

My best friend is gone. He has left me to live without him.
“Excuse me miss, this was found. Its for you” I stood in the doorway of his room while they bagged his body downstairs. I could hear the cries of his mum, and sisters. The paramedic handed me the letter.

It read. I can’t read this. If I read it then that means he is really gone.

1 Year later
He’s annoying, a giant flirt and above all a little smart ass. However I need a place to stay and there is no way I can stay at home, there are to many memories, I’m surprised I made it through the second half of senior year without him. Still haven’t read the letter though. It could be worse, I could have a ditsy blonde bimbo slut as a roommate instead of this ladies man. Well I guess this is how I’ll live while at Universaty. Without my best friend, living with someone who brings home a different girl every second night. Great.


3. Love, Actually


I was back in Bradford, at the field. James sat on the grass, crossed legged and reading his book ‘Lord Of The Rings’. I don’t know how many times he has read that book yet he refuses to watch the movies.

“Ruby hey” he looked up. Suddenly I was right next to him sitting on the grass.

“Have you read my letter yet?” He asked continuing to read and avoiding looking up at me again.

“No I haven’t.” What was happening?

“You really should, I hate seeing you like this.” He responded. All of a sudden my vision went blurry and once everything was in focus again James was gone from my side and I was standing in front of my English class. I looked around and nobody was here except Soda. Why?

The teacher looked at me and nodded. I looked down at my hands and saw my speech in my hands. Looking back up I saw Soda; his eyes were glued to my phone, which sat beside him on the desk. It was ringing like mad but he didn’t do anything about it but stare at it. ‘PICK IT UP YOU BASTARD!’ I tried to shout but nothing came out. Somehow I couldn’t move, my feet stuck like glue and I couldn’t do anything to get away.

In a sudden flash Soda was in front of me, my phone in his hands. It was exactly like before. Same setting. Same sweaty air and ink filled smell. The same look of fear in Soda’s eyes. I looked at him shocked.

“James” He said before fading away.

“James? WHAT ABOUT JAMES NO SODA COME BACK!!!” I yelled but it was to late, he was gone.

Everything was pitch black I couldn’t see a thing. Nothing surrounded me. I couldn’t feel anything but space. Empty, black space.

“I hate seeing you like this” I heard James whisper. Where was he?

“James? James where are you?” I shouted however nothing happened. I was alone, he was gone, James was gone.

“Read the letter Ruby.” He whispered again. This time when he spoke a light shone not far ahead of me. The light lit up a desk, his desk. On the old wooden desk lay a white envelope.

Was all it said.

My eyes shot open. Not again. I had had that nightmare numerous amounts of times before but never so vivid. I jumped out of bed. Distraction I have to find a distraction from that nightmare. The TV!

I walked out of my room and down the hall, quietly opening the door to the lounge. If anything Harry and his friends would of fallen asleep in there as usual. Much to my surprise I stepped into the room only to see four people left. Liam, Danielle, Zayn and Niall lay spread out across the two couches, Harry was no where to be seen, he probably went to bed. I turned around, I guess watching TV wasn’t going to be an option this time. Walking back down the hall way back to my room I stopped outside Harold’s door. I don’t know why, he does have a TV in there… hmmm, a light seems to be on. Knock knock. I heard some shuffling around and then a small bang. What was he doing? Actually scrap that I don’t want to know.


“Ruby what are you doing up?” He asked opening the door. His voice crackled from disuse. He looked me up and down. I was still in my bum pants and white LA oversized t-shirt so there wasn’t much to see. Suddenly Harry pulled me into a death hug. Well a normal hug but it caught me off guard and scared the living daylight out of me.

“You okay?” He asked pulling back and whipping his thumb over my cheek. SHIT I must have been crying because of that nightmare, oh yea the nightmare.

“Uh yea I’m fine, um what are you doing?” I asked changing the subject. He looked surprised I don’t know whether it was because he had just seen his roommate cry or the fact that I said something that indicated that I might actually care about him. Either or I can understand.

“Uh I was watching a movie, I though you were asleep?” He answered scratching the back of his neck. Harry looked nervous…I’d only seen him nervous once before, he was taking this girl out on an actual date and wouldn’t stop panicking about what he should say, wear, and do. It was really annoying to say the least.

“Uh I was but I woke up and can’t get back to sleep. What movie are you watching?” Should I tell him about my nightmare? Nah he doesn’t need to know. Like I always say, what they don’t know won’t kill them…unless you’re a spy then it might.

“Uh it just finished but we could watch another one?” Well that was weird, Harrys is acting as though I’ve just walked in on him with a girl, or him watching a chick flick hahaha that would be funny. I walked into his room and looked at the tv which sat opposite his bed. A picture of the menu for Love, Actually showed. Oh my gosh. I burst out laughing, arms clutching my sides as I dramatically pretended to wipe a tear from my eye. Harry just stared at me un amused and a little bit embarrassed. But this was priceless. HARRY IS WATCHING LOVE, ACTUALLY!! Phahaha oh my this just, makes my night.

“Yea haha I was watching a chick flick, shut up will you.” He got back into bed and sat there with a pout. Naw he looks like an angry puppy. Ew did I just say that? Ugh

“Are you going to get in or just stand there with a cute look on your face?” That smirk ugh why?! Like I said a while ago I hate him yes but he is also very good looking. You can see why he gets all the girls. Luscious brown curls that sit perfectly over his face, bright green orbs which you cant seem to tear your eyes away from. A body that makes me want to puke but ride him like there is no tomorrow all the same.

“get in loser” he winked pulling the covers back, I got in to the bed hesitantly but none the less. Damn you and your mean girls reference.

Can we just take a break here though and think this through. This morning I would of punched Harry in the face if he told me to get into bed with him let alone pretend to be his girlfriend. Now…now I’m not only his fake girlfriend but also am about to hop into the same bed as someone I loath entirely.

What am I even doing here?

“Ya know I’m just going to uh” I stuttered, help awkwardness I’ve missed you.

“Go?” He asked. I nodded quickly and walked back to my room. I wonder what Annie is doing… Its about 3am so she’ll be awake.
