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.
Ruby Taswatt
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.


11. See You In Three Days

Ruby’s POV

Quarter past three what the hell I just want to get this over and done with already. Right lets make a plan…run back home to Amy and never ever think about going back to Bradford ever again…? No I’m already here I have to do this.

Okay. I’ll get there in time for dinner, which will be a big thing with all of the family, just great. Hopefully mum doesn’t try to set me up with anyone because I will completely explode if she does I swear you watch me…I just told myself to watch me rage at my mum WTH. Anyway, I’ll spend all my time with Taylor and his best friend Andrew who will probably be over because he practically lives there I’m not even kidding. Then bam three days as been and I wouldn’t of seen anybody which I’m fine with and I’ll be back home to face fucking Harry Styles.

YUSSS my bus has arrived. I’m off to see Taylor my little brother Taylor. Haha wizard of Oz reference.


Harry’s POV

As I drove I saw the dark blue bus 3 cars ahead of me, I had to catch her before she left or I don’t know what I would do. The traffic was backed up and soon enough I was behind the bus by maybe 5 or 8 cars.


Pulling over I saw Ruby throwing her luggage into the bus. I pulled and pulled at my seatbelt until finally it came off and I jumped out. Being about 10 metres away from the bus stop I ran over to the group of people, my eyes glued to her.

“RUBY!” I called. A few people looked my way but none of them were her. She wore her black bum pants with a jersey that looked to be mine…in fact it was. The jersey was grey with a black collar and black ribbing, it hung down her thighs nearly at her knees but she still looked beautiful.

“Excuse me sir I need to see your ticket.” The bus driver stopped me before I could get on; she had her headphones in and was looking down at her lap, probably playing games on her iPod.

“No you don’t understand I have to just get this girl, she’s not supposed to be on the bus please just let me on I’ll leave after please I’m begging you.” I pleaded to the driver but he just shook his head at me.

“Sorry mate, I’m leaving now and you can’t come on unless you have a ticket.” He sighed letting the last few people onto the bus. FUCK! This is ridiculous.

“Fine, whatever thanks.” I mumbled walking away with my hands resting over me head. I turned and watched her as the bus’s engine started. Ruby looked up as it was pulling away, her eyebrows knotted together in confusion when she saw me. My eyes widened, she saw me but the bus is moving NO. My phone started ringing in my pocket, I got it out and saw her name flash on my screen.

“Uh-hey” I answered watching her in the bus as it waited for traffic, which happened to be backed up so they weren’t moving anytime soon.

“What the fuck are you doing here? No actually how did you know I was here? Harry what are you doing here?” She asked resting her head on her hand she raised her eyebrows at me waiting for me to explain why I was here.

“Um erm well I wanted to apologize for everything and Amy told me that you were here. I had to come okay I’m sick of you ignoring me! I’m sorry I forgot you, I was drunk, it was a rebound one night stand and I’m sorry; I’m sorry I read James’s letter, I am, really I was curious that’s all. Look I really like you, I told everyone that I lied about you being my girlfriend and guess what they said.” I paused my rant.

“What?” She asked softly; clear in her voice that she wasn’t annoyed with me anymore but just curious as to what my friends said and what I’ll say.

“They said that they honestly believe that you were my girlfriend because we looked that good together and that it looked as though we both did have feelings for each other. I do have feelings for you and I know you have this giant wall up but I don’t care. I also know that I have no chance with you because you hate me for what I’ve done but I don’t want you living at Amy’s anymore, your home is at our apartment; go see your family, go do whatever you have to do in Bradford, go see James, go see your friends I don’t know but I’ll be a phone call away” I stopped to catch my breath, looking at her she had tears in her eyes. The bus started moving forward but I kept walking along next to it. “and when you come back just know that I’ll be waiting with pasta and your favourite books at the apartment because for now that’s where you belong.”  I finished.

“Okay. I’ll see you in three days okay, promise?” She whispered. I couldn’t see her anymore. The bus was driving down the road while I stood at the stop with my phone pressed against my ear.

“Promise.” I whispered back.

“See you round Harry.” She said, I could tell she had a smile on now. When she first moved in, one morning Ruby was about to go to school when she stopped and said good bye to me. I remember I told her to never say goodbye because goodbye means forever and I’ll be seeing her for dinner later that night. She’s never said goodbye to me again and I’m grateful for that.

“See you in three days Ruby.” I smiled to myself. Hanging up I got back into the car, driving back to Lou’s to tell him and El that I’ve almost got my Ruby back where she belongs, with me.
