Half A Heart 2

sequel to "I'm Half A Heart Without You"


3. Chapter 2

"Ruby... Ruby wake up." Liam gently shook my shoulder.

"Mm?" I rose my head slightly.

"We..." He took a deep breath. "We... have to start packing."

I sat up immediately. "Really?"

He nodded sadly. We were interrupted by Ali's crying. I grudgingly stood up and walked the three metres to her room, where she was lying in her cot, wailing loudly.

"Hey, hey, it's okay sweetie." I picked her up gently and patted her back. She quietly whimpered as I hugged her. "Sshh. It's okay."

Liam came into her room, smiling sadly at me. "Should we start?" I nodded.

I placed Ali back in her cot and left the room with Liam. I walked into the kitchen to make some breakfast. "Eggs?" I asked, looking into the fridge.

"Sounds good." He smiled gently at me.

I cracked an egg into the frypan and watched as it transformed. Five minutes later, I served up two eggs and two pieces of toast to Liam and one egg for myself.

After I finished, I walked back to Ali's room with a tin of baby food. "Sweetie, breakfast time." I sung quietly. I opened the tin and dug the spoon inside. "Here you are darling." I held out the spoon to her.



I sighed as I packed away the photos on our mantelpiece. I stared at the last one intently. It was a picture of me and Ruby on our trip to Disneyland. We both looked so happy... I smiled lightly and placed it into the box with the others. I closed the box and taped it with duct tape.

Ruby walked in with Ali in her arms. "Hey babe, how's the packing going?" She asked.

"Great." I smiled sadly at her.

She sighed and walked out of the room, jiggling our baby. She came back in by herself, smiling lightly. She walked over, arms stretched out for a hug. I embraced her tightly. She lent back and kissed me softly.

"I love you." She smiled.

"And I love you." I told her.

It was time. Time to ask.

I lent down on one knee and brought out a red velvet box. "Ruby... I love you so much and I can't imagine my life without you. Will... will you marry me?" I smiled.

She looked so shocked. "Yes! YES!!!" She squealed pulling me onto my feet and kissing me. She watched as I placed the gold ring on her finger.

She smiled and gave me a tight hug.


I looked at my ring in the light again, smiling. Liam had left the room to take a shower and I was currently placing my clothes in a duffel bag. His phone buzzed and I looked around. Liam was still in the shower, so I quickly picked it up and looked at the message. My eyes widened as I read it.

Hailey: hey babe! thx for my ring. it's absolutely gorg! love ya xxx

There was a picture of a beautiful ring, that looked almost exactly like mine.

Tears filling my eyes, I threw his phone on the floor. I sat on the bed, head in my hands. How could I be so stupid?! He obviously didn't love me. He's a world-famous pop star! Why would he want me?!

Liam walked into my room, towel around his waist. "Hey babe." He said, smiling. He noticed my glum face and frowned. "Umm, what's wrong?" He asked me.

I sobbed, looking away from him. I grabbed the phone off the floor and threw it at him. He opened it and read the message.

"Oh... Ruby... I'm so sorry. I can explain." He said, walking over to me.

"No!" I yelled, suddenly furious. I pushed past him to Ali's room. I quickly picked her up and cradled her in my arms. Liam came in, still naked.

"Babe, can't we talk about this? I need to tell you about it." He began.

"No. I don't care. Piss off. I want nothing to do with you. Leave me and Ali alone!" I yelled, running past him.

I left our apartment, sobbing. After running down the stairs, I stood outside, wiping my tears away and hugging Ali.

"Where will we go?" I whispered to myself and Ali, trying to shield us from the rain.

I had an idea. There was someone I was extremely close to, who I knew could keep my secret.
