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.


7. Sorry won't cut it



Harry's POV

I didn't mean to. It was right there. Never opened and covered in dust. I shouldn't have I know but it was just so tempting. She's going to kill me. 


Ruby's POV

I'm going to kill that son of a bitch if he read this letter seriously I will rip his- 

"I'm sorry" I fling around and Harry stood in my door way. His head hung low and his hands in his pockets. 

"You're sorry? YOU'RE SORRY?? SORRY ISN'T GOING TO CHANGE THE FACT YOU READ IT IS IT?! NO!!" I screamed. I cannot believe this. Seriously this is so low I mean I haven't even read it and its from James, my dead best friend. How could he?

"I wanted to know what was so special about it. Why it hadn't been open. I'm sorry okay I didn't mean to" he looked up and seemed generally sorry. But that doesn't cut it. I was still angry and hurt and it was all his fault. 

"I haven't even read it Harry. It's the last thing I have from him" I mumbled tears fell forms my eyes as I started to sob. Harry didn't do anything though, he just stood there with a dumb look on his face like he didn't know what to do. 

"ITS ALL I HAVE LEFT OF HIM HARRY!!" I screamed. There was another figure in the doorway now, standing behind Harry stood Zayn. 

"Is everything okay?" He asked. I looked at Harry and saw a tear escape down his cheek. Why the fuck is he crying HE HASN'T JUST FOUND OUT THE ONE THING HE HAS LEFT FROM HIS DEAD BEST FRIEND WAS READ BY HIS IDIOTIC ROOMMATE!!!!! 

"Everything is not alright actually." I said looking back at Zayn. He looked generally concerned. And that's when it hit me. I was right. He is soda. Zayn is soda. I'll kill him. 

"YOU!!" I screamed pointing at Zayn. He looked scared. 

"DOES HARRY KNOW?!" Harry's head shot up. 

"Does harry know what?" He asked. Zayn looked at Harry and then back at me. He didn't know what to say. 

"Wait do you two know each other?" Harry questioned looking between the two of us. Zayn spoke before I had a chance. Faggot. 

"Ruby and I went to school together." He answered. Went to school together? Really? That's all he's going to say? Well fuck you then. 

"Get out" I whispered. My voice quiet from the yelling before hand. 

"What?" The two asked in unison. Fuck sake. 

"GETOUT SO I CAN READ THE LETTER ALONE OKAY" I screamed one last time. In a matter of seconds they were gone and I was left alone. I sat on the floor at the end of my bed and carefully took the letter out of the envelope and unfolded the paper. 


Harry's POV

I stormed into the lounge and Zayn followed calmly behind me. 

"YOU WENT TO SCHOOL WITH RUBY??!" I screamed at him. They fucking know each other! Know or knew? I don't know but still neither of them told me. 

"Yea. It's no big deal though, I only figured it out when we all meet her" he said sitting down on the couch. How is calm? Ruby and Zayn went to school together. She hates my guts because I read the letter and she's probably going to move out and ill never see her again... You can see why I'm freaking the freak out!!!

I sat down next to Zayn and held my head in my hands. 

"I fucked up. I really fucked up." I kept mumbling over and over again. I seriously fucked up. 

"No you didn't. I mean yeah you read the letter that was from her best friend who committed in senior year. But she'll get over that eventually. She talked to me." I looked at him dumbfounded. She'll get over it? James committed? She talked to him? 

"We were friends with benefits for a while towards the end of senior year. Ya know after James and after ruby changed. Long story short I was a horrie friend and person in general, I asked this girl Abigail to the formal and then tried to get ruby to come home with me. She was really angry to say the least. But yea she hasn't spoken to me since basically" Zayn sighed. I nodded gently and drummed my fingers on the coffee table, so ruby slept with both of us...interesting. 

"If its any consolation ruby and I have slept toge-" I was stopped mid sentence by a loud sob, ruby. 

"You and ruby slept together?" Zayn asked practically ignoring Ruby's loud sobs. Me however, i was on my feet in seconds and making my way to Ruby's room. 

"Twice, ill tell ya later" I said now running to her room. The door was shut and I heard Zayn call out a quick 'see ya round'

Should I go in?


But she's mad at me

That doesn't matter you idiot she's crying go and comfort her!

Maybe I should...

I reached for the handle and gripped it, turning the nod I started to have second thoughts about if I really should go in. 

Eh YOLO (I hate YOLO but whatever) 

There she sat. On the floor, her back leaned up against her bed with things scattered around her like she had gotten angry and thrown things across the room. I ran to her side and wrapped my arms around her. 

"Go away Harry" she mumbled but I kept my ground, pulling her closer and shhhing into her hair. I let her cry for a bit still holding her, not planning on letting go. 

"I'm not leaving you" I whispered. Her answer surprised me. 

"You promise?" Ruby looked up, her eyes puffing and cheeks covered in tears. She look so vulnerable I just wanted to hide her from the world so nothing could hurt her again, so i pulled her onto my lap and kissed her temple. 

"I promise" I whispered against her skin.
