Ruby's point of view
We just lounge around together in my room all night. I never even considered getting reattached to him but as soon as he said it, I knew I wanted to. It was seeing him again, seeing him actually there, I couldn't resist having him be mine again. I couldn't say no to that. Him being here is also helping block that negativity that the thoughts of Jason bring and I'm so glad for that.
"You should come out and stay with me in England for a while one day." I suggest, tracing circles on his chest. His bare chest, might I add.
"Yeah." he agrees, gently running his hand up and down my arm. "Soon."
I nod. "Really soon."
He smiles and then it fades slightly. "Rubes?"
"How are you... how are you dealing with what happened with Jason?"
I pause for a moment. "I'm okay. In England it's pretty easy to just not think about it. That's why I've been so reluctant to come back here."
He sighs, kissing my cheek. "God, it's selfish of me to want you to come back."
I smile a little. "That's not selfish."
"It kind of is." he says. "I'm still so sorry about it all."
"Stop apologising." I sit up and smile at him.
He looks at me, just a small smile on his face. "Ruby, I know when we argued I said some horrible things but I am still worried about some of the things I said. You are sure you're really dealing with it aren't you? Like, you're not just avoiding it."
"I'm sure." I reassure him.
He smiles properly. "It does really seem like you are loving England."
"I am!" I say, enthusiastically. "Oh my god, I love it so much. I can't wait for you to come out to visit."
"Me neither. We'll have to figure out an excuse to tell Jonas though."
"We'll figure it out. You can come and stay for like a week." I say, smiling as I imagine it. "And we don't have to be so quiet. And I can take you to all the shops and there's this big mall called Meadowhall and we can just spend all day together."
"I'd stay for two weeks." he winks.
"Maybe I'll just stay for a month."
"Or maybe a year."
We both laugh and I lie back down, pulling him down with me. He kisses me and then turns the light out.
"I love you, Ruby." he whispers again and that's when I know I've made the right decision.
"I love you." I whisper back.
