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.
