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...


8. Chapter 8

Later that day, I was sitting at home, on my couch, watching Pretty Little Liars on my laptop.

I had snuck out of the house while Liam slept. I still felt bad, even though I had cried for literally an hour.

I sighed and reached in the bag for another corn chip. I heard my phone ring in my bag, so I reached over and grabbed it. Not surprisingly, it was a text from Liam.

'Where r u? I'm worried :( xx'

I felt even worst after reading those two sentences, if it was possible. I lay back on the couch, tears forming in my eyes and stared at the ceiling.


"Where is she?!" I exclaimed frantically.

"Who?" Harry asked, walking into my bedroom.

"Ruby. Last thing I remember, she was in the bathroom. I think she was crying, but she told me to go away."



Ruby was crying because of me.

I'm the reason.

I should tell Liam.

But he'll hate me...

I sighed. "Liam, mate, there's something I need to tell you. Promise me you won't freak out."

Liam looked at me strangely and nodded.

I took a deep breath. "I kissed Ruby."

"WHAT?!" Liam yelled.

"I'm sorry... I just... Mate, you KNOW how I feel about her." I mumbled.

"But that doesn't mean you can kiss her while we're dating!" Liam shouted.

"Dude, I'm sorry." I said, then walked back into my room. I felt horrible. I needed to talk to Ruby. I walked into Niall's room and picked up his iPhone. I went into his contacts and scrolled down until I found 'Ruby'.

I grinned as I wrote her number down. "0403 658 693." I repeated aloud.

Niall came in. "Harry? What're you doing?"

I quickly looked up. "Oh, um nothing."

Niall looked unconvinced, but shrugged anyway and left.


My phone rung, the screen showing it was a call from an unknown number.

I sighed and picked it up. "Hello?"


"No, no, NO!" I almost screamed.

"Woah, calm down." Harry reassured me.

"WHY?! Why should I calm down?!" I yelled. "You might've ruined my relationship!"

"Ruby, I'm really sorry. I've told Liam." He said quietly.

"You WHAT?!" I screamed.

"I told Liam. I told him it was all my fault." Harry said.

I couldn't stand it anymore. I hung up.
