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.

Chris' point of view

All I want to do is mope around now that she's gone. I don't even really see the point in going to Jonas' anymore which sounds mean because he is still my best friend and I like spending time with him but just the thought of Ruby not being in her room is depressing. 

It's been a week now and I told her to let me know when she'd settled in or if she needed any help but she hasn't yet. I don't know if that's a good thing or a bad thing but I finally send her a message, just in case. We're not together anymore, we're not a pair, but I still care about her even if she's forgetting about me. 

Hey Rubes. How are you settling in? I haven't heard from you in a while, hope it's all going okay x 

She apparently isn't too busy because she replies straight away:

Hey :) It's all going good thank you, I love England, my classes are going well, it's good. How are you? X

I sigh when I read that. We're back to just being all polite and formal now. Never the less, I send her a message back: 

Glad to hear it :) I'm good thanks x

I hesitate, considering the next message when I tell myself to just do it. I send:

I miss you x 

She doesn't reply for a couple of minutes and then sends back:

I miss you too. I've gotta go and grab something to eat before I go to bed, I've got class early tomorrow, nice talking to you x

I tell her goodbye before lying face down on my bed. I don't even know what to do about this. It's not like it's this huge problem that I can really talk to her about and sort out. She's living her life, I'm living mine. We're drifting and that's how it's meant to be, whether I like it or not.
