When I Fell

Falling in love is tricky. There are so many movies and books that make it seem so easy and passionate and right but in the real word it's confusing and exciting and fun and frustrating and in the real world, things get in the way.

Ruby's point of view

It's seven in the morning on the day I'm going back to England. I'm going home in half an hour, I barely have time to be here but I made an excuse to go out so I could meet Chris on the beach. It's cold at this time in the morning and he's sat on the sand in his jeans and a large hoodie when I get there. He notices me and stands up, brushing the sand off of himself. He looks sad. I look sad. There's a moment where I'm just walking towards him but then he rushes towards me, pulling me into a tight hug. 

"Don't go." he whispers. 

"Come with me." I whisper back even though I know he can't. Just like he knows I can't stay.

He sighs, not letting go of me. I don't want him to. "I'll be there one day. When I have the money."

"But for how long?" I ask, dismayed as I pull away from him. "A week or two? I'm going to be there for three years. Maybe I shouldn't go back, maybe I should-"

"Don't even suggest it." he shakes his head. "Don't be silly, Rubes, we'll figure it all out."

I nod, taking his hands. "I've gotta go."

He pulls me into another hug and takes a deep breath before kissing me, resting his forehead on mine.

"Go before I start crying." he smiles. 

I laugh a little but it feels like I'm gonna cry. "Bye then."

"See you." he kisses me softly and then I'm walking away from him, hoping that he isn't seeing me cry.
