A boy with a past. A girl with a past. Can they help each other? Can they learn from each other along the way? Along the road which is paved with tricks, dirty words and hard luck, can they survive together?
Well I I hope you like A Dirty Game people.
Ruby forced a smile on her face as Jake kissed her. The truth was, she was bored of him. He had long ceased to excite, or make her smile or laugh. The fun had disappeared. Like a cat with a mouse, Ruby was bored, and she wanted a new toy. Jake sat down opposite her. They were meeting before she left – she’d tried to leave it for as long as she could. He was so delicate. He smiled at her, but it faded as he saw how serious she was. Straight backed and tight lipped.
"What's wrong?" he asked, leaning forward to touch her hand.
"Jake, I don't want to do this anymore" she answered simply.
He blinked. "Do what?" he laughed, half whined.
"Be with you."
"Because to be brutally honest: I'm bored. And anyway, I'm moving today. You knew that. I don't want to be attached to anyone. Sorry. But that's how it is" she sighed.
Jake stared at her, unable to say anything. What would he say? What could he? All of a sudden he knew. He stood up and angrily stepped towards her.
"You are a heartless bitch. You think anyone wants to be with because you're funny, or smart, or kind? No! It's because you've got a nice figure and money! No one is sad to see the back of you, in every sense! So you can go, because no one CARES!" he shouted and stormed out. Ruby raised an eyebrow. Wow, Jake had always been so dramatic.
Lithely, she unfolded her long limbs from the table and stood up. When she stretched, she was very aware that the bus boys had stopped working and instead were ogling her. Like a flower under the sun, she stood up straighter and beamed at them. Startled, one of them dropped all the plates and Ruby left laughing. Her pocket buzzed, and she pulled her iPhone out of her Apple Bottom jeans. Checking the caller I.D., she tutted, but answered it.
"How many times have I told you not to call me that?" she muttered. Her brother Taylor laughed.
"A thousand time baby sister! The trucks are all packed up, mum's sitting in the car and she wants you to hurry your skinny ass over."
Ruby laughed and started walking home. Taylor was her adopted brother but she loved him like he was her blood himself. She checked her watch; 12 am. Not bad.
"She said to be back by one!"
"Well, the truck drivers have something different in mind! I'm just waiting for you to all to go so I can throw a wild party. I’ve been waiting ages" he joked.
Ruby rolled her eyes. "I told mum not to leave you alone. But apparently you have 'matured' enough to be allowed the responsibility. Matured my left bum cheek!" she snorted as she crossed the road.
Taylor was now laughing at her which annoyed her so Ruby hung up. She wasn't sure how she felt about moving from London all the way up to where her unknown cousin's sister lived. She hadn’t even bothered to ask the name of her new home. But she was looking forward to seeing Rachel again. They had some interesting unfinished business between them. She wasn’t sad to leave behind her school and her ‘friends’. To her, the word didn’t exist. It would be the second time they’d moved in the last three years, and she’d long since abandoned the process of attachment.
Smiling, she pulled her sunglasses down over her face and pushed her earphones into her ears. The walk home wasn’t long, but she needed the distraction. Jake’s words were rattling around in her head, and if she wasn’t careful, she would start comparing them to the other words she’d ever been called. Not that it would upset her. But still. No one liked airing their past for a regulation visit.
