Louis' pov: I looked at her and started to laugh. "Really? If she was here, you wouldn't call me. You are very, very stupid, Ruby" I chuckled before walking off. I made my way downstairs to see Elizabeth standing there looking at me. "H-hi" I stuttered. "Can I speak to you?"She asked. Why do you want to speak to me?
"Sure, sure," I said walking out the door and slamming it behind me. Elizabeth looked at me and sat down on my porch steps. "Why did you say those things," She said looking back at me. I walked down the steps and felt my bare feet on the concrete. She looked at me and wiped her eyes. "We were best friends since we were little and now you've turned into such a....jerk!"She yelled. I walked close to her and grabbed her arm; She tried to pull her arm away from me, but she couldn't.
"Is your mom home?"I asked. She sniffled and shook her head. "My mom went somewhere and Melanie went to sleep over at her boyfriend's house," She said. I let her arm go and held her hand. "I'll tell you when we get to your house," I said
As we crossed the street, Ruby yelled my name. "What!"I yelled turning around. Ruby laughed and fixed the dress she was wearing. "I'll be on a date with someone special! take care of that bitch" She yelled. Elizabeth let my hand go and walked away. I turned around to see her running to her door.
"Take care of your boy toy to, Ruby" I yelled back before running to Elizabeth. She opened the door and walked inside. I closed the door behind me and looked at her looking back at me. "Over summer vacation, my mom met a man and then she married him. The man she met was Ruby's father which makes Ruby my step-sister. He keeps saying rude things to me every single day and then I ended up punching you in school because I suddenly lost it. Tate and Landon don't want to be friends..they want me to bully you" I said.
"You could have told me this before school started, Louis," She said. I grabbed her by the waist and pulled her towards me. "I am so fucking sorry, Elizabeth. I should have told you before, but the boys just popped out of the blue"I said. She shrugged and nodded. "Just ignore me in school, ok?"She said, frowning. "I'll ignore you in school but not out of school. I just don't want you to get hurt by them even though I hurt you the most today" I said. She looked at me with her beautiful ocean blue eyes and started to cry.
"I miss you, Louis. I miss your warm and comforting hugs. I miss your laughter...i miss everything" She cried. I looked at her and frowned. I am so sorry, Elizabeth.
"Elizabeth" I whispered while opening my arms. She looked at me before running into my arms. I wrapped my arms around her and rubbed her back. "I won't be ignoring you, Elizabeth. I hope you know not be trust Ruby, Landon, and Tate. Tate with always be on the lookout with Landon" I whispered. Even though i had hurt her, I don't want her to be hurt by Ruby or the boys. I unwrapped my arms from around her and watched her wiped her eyes.
"Can I stay here tonight?"I asked. As she was about to say something, there was a knock on the door. "If Alexandra lets you"She smiled
