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.


4. Why Do You Hate Me?



I don’t have any classes today so I guess I should clean this place. It’s a bit of a mess since last night.

Starting in the kitchen I did the dishes and even threw away some old food that wasn’t going to be eaten any time soon

The lounge. All that needed to be done was straightening the couches, and vacuum the popcorn from last night.

The hall way was simple. I picked up a few stray clothes and that was about it.

Bathroom was the same. A few clothes which I chucked into the washing machine in the laundry and a wipe down of the sink.

My room was clean; I always kept it clean so there wasn’t anything to do in there.

Should I go into Ruby’s room? I guess I should. There was no turning back anyway; before I knew it I had already taken five steps into her room. It was not how I pictured her room to look like.

A blackboard wall behind her bed with a giant tree drawn on to it on the side of her window, on the other side was a couple quotes. My favourite must have been To die would be the best adventure of all. -Peter Pan. Never thought she would be a peter pan fan. Haha that rhymed.

Her bed was made apart from four books that sat on the corner.

Cracked Up To Be- Courtney Summers

All The Rage- Courtney Summers

The Shadow Thief- Alexandra Adornetto

And finally

Boys Don’t Cry- Malorie Blackman

Girly books probably. I walked over to her desk picking up random clothing that was sprawled across the floor on my way. Her favourite top sat over the chair, I knew it was her favourite because I had questioned why she wore it once during the first week we lived together. She simply replied “Why shouldn’t I wear my favourite top, I need to be confident and comfortable if I’m to make any friends or get a job.”

I still remember what she was wearing. Mainly because whenever she meets new people she wears just about the same outfit, every job interview or when she goes to meet Annie’s new boyfriends (who had a fling with Niall hmm I wonder if they ever met…)

You’re probably wondering why Ruby hates me because I listen to her, clean up the apartment when she is out and well I’m just an amazing guy ;) honestly I haven’t a clue as to why she hates me. Maybe something happened to her in the past to do with a guy? I dunno and I don’t think I’ll be asking anytime soon unless I want my he-

“What’s that?”I whispered. On her desk away from her art work, photos and books was an envelope. The only thing on it was her name, looked like a guy wrote it too. I picked It up and turned it around. The envelope was still sealed and I noticed the dust that had stuck itself to the paper and the perfect rectangle shape that bwas left on the desk from me picking it up. 

"HARREHHHHH" I heard a shout and then the slam of the door. It's safe to say I screamed. Dropped the envelope. And jumped round to see Louis gasping for air on the ground -_- 

"What are you doing here?" I asked kicking Louis' side while he still lay on the ground laughing at me. 


Louis' POV 

I wiped the tears that were forming in my eyes from laughing and stood up.

"The question is...what are YOU doing in HERE?" I asked looking around. My guess is this is Ruby's room. 

"Don't you two sleep in the same bed or something?" Harry looked down his eyes darting to an envelope on the ground then back up to me. 

"We haven't been dating for that long." He answered. Hmmmmm interesting. 

"She's not your girlfriend is she Haz?" To be honest ever since she came out to help Harry with the popcorn I had my doubts. Firstly the way she answered the door, she seemed pissed off that he had even knocked. 

Secondly, she flinched when he grabbed her waist. Girlfriends don't usually do that. 

And last but not least, she called him Harry. Nobody who is even remotely close to Harry ever calls him by his actual name. Usually it's hazza, Haz, Harold, and don't girlfriends have those random nicknames for their boyfriends? El calls me boo and dani calls Liam li li. 

Hazza walked out of the room and into the kitchen. I followed him, Harry's never lied to me so why is he now?? 

"C'mon curly tell me the truth." 

"She hates my guts" he whispered. Oh no. I knew that look. Harry liked her. 

"Hate is a strong word Haz." I patted his shoulder, leaning against the counter next to him. 

"No she really hates me Lou. I don't know why though I mean I've been nice to her. I listen to her when she rants. I ask her about her day but she just shrugs me off and hides in her room. She hates me and I've done absolutely nothing to her!" He held his head in his hands and sighed. He really likes her. 

"Why did you lie about her being your girlfriend though?" I asked. 

"You guys were all teasing me about getting my ins with her when we first moved in and then a month ago Niall asked why I hadn't snatched her up yet because she was 'smoking' and I felt jealous. I didn't want anyone but me to have her so I lied and said I she was mine. Sorry" 


Ruby's POV

stupid Harry and his stupid charm. Never falling for that again I said. Why do I lie to myself? My phone vibrated in my pocket indicating I had a text. 

'Why do you hate me?'

It was Harry. What do I say? 'A month before we moved in together you slept with me, never called and never even learnt my name why the fuck do you think I hate you'? No that seems a bit mean. Maybe ill just leave I have to reply. 

'I have my reasons'


he never replied. Typical. Well I'm home now so maybe he'll talk to me...

A note sat on the bench. 

Gone shopping be back later


Or not... 

What to do now? I could go for a run. Haven't done that in a while, hmm yea lets go for a run. I got changed into a sports bra and shorts. Put my running shoes on and plugged in my iPod. 

Cher Lloyd's want u back started playing and I was off.
