I'm Half A Heart Without You

Ruby isn't popular. She's not blond, or particularly skinny. And yet it seems, out of hundreds of girls, Liam Payne has fallen for her. But he's not the only one...


4. Chapter 4

I stared in the mirror at my reflection.

"Girl, you look good." Sienna stood behind me, admiring her handiwork.

I laughed, but I had to admit she was semi-right. My hair, usually in a bun on the top of my head, was floating gracefully around my shoulders. I was wearing black skinny jeans with a purple tank top and black and white Converse high-tops. I was even wearing the tiniest amount of makeup; purple eyeshadow and pale pink lip gloss.

I checked my phone. It was already 4:45.

"Let's go." Sienna picked up her car keys. "Address?" She asked me.

"Um... 269 Greenland street." I said.

Ten minutes later I was standing in front of a huge house with a ginormous pool.

"Wow." I looked behind me and waved goodbye to CiCi. She waved back and drove off. I walked up the steps nervously and rang the doorbell. I immediately heard footsteps and took a deep breath. A minute later, Liam opened the door and stared at me.

"Ruby... Wow." He said.

I blushed. "Can I come in, or what?!"

He laughed and opened the door wider.

"Shit." I looked around. This place was huge.

Liam laughed again and said "Follow me."

He brought me up to what I guess was his bedroom. I sat on his bed.

"So... Should we start on this project?" I smiled.

Liam had already set up his laptop on his desk, so I went over to have a look. He had already written a few ideas down.

I heard my phone beep. I pulled it out of my purse and opened it.

"It's Teresa." I said. I read the message aloud. "'Sorry rubes, be about another half-hour, me & zayn r having coffee.'"

I smiled and looked at Liam.

He shrugged. "I guess we have thirty minutes to kill."

"Yeah." I looked at his computer again.

We sat there in silence, until Liam said something.

"Hey Ruby, can I ask you a question?"

"You just did." I laughed. "Sure, ask away."

"Umm... Do you..." He looked at his feet.

I walked over to him. "Yeah?"

"Do you... Do you wanna be my girlfriend?" He blurted out.

I stared at him. I couldn't believe it. Liam Payne had just asked me out. Liam Payne wanted to be my boyfriend.

**cue another heart attack**

"Well?" Liam looked at me.

I smiled and leaned forward. "Yes." I whispered, before pulling him close to kiss him.
