Chris' point of view
I have no idea what's happening with Ruby. We've been home from Barbados for two weeks now and she hasn't even looked at me. Jonas says that she just stays in her room, that she doesn't really eat anything. He seemed worried at first but now he's saying that his mom is saying it's just a phase that girls that age tend to go through. Jonas and I and all of the others have started back at college now but Ruby's grade doesn't start for another few weeks.
I don't know what made her break up with me but it feels terrible. I thought we were so happy together, she never seemed unhappy or upset with me. I miss her. I can't concentrate in class, I can't keep up with conversations, I can't have fun when my friends and I all go out at weekends, I can't do anything at night but lie there and wonder about her.
I go to Jonas' and I'm shocked to see Ruby sitting at the kitchen table when Jonas and I go in to get a drink. I go to say hi but I can't do it. We look at each other for the briefest moment. She looks tired and sad and I'm sure she can see I look the same way. She gets up and leaves and Jonas seems oblivious to all of this. I don't know what to think. None of it makes any sense.
Ruby's started to keep her bedroom door open at night but she still doesn't leave. I'm worried about her. Whatever 'phase' she's going through can't be healthy. She just seems down and I've never seen her like this. I've never seen anybody like this. I can see her from Jonas' room and I keep an eye on her every now and again and she just lies there on her side, staring into space.
