Hey guys, I'm avoiding my homework, so here's another chapter! I hope you like it! Hey alchemistic, I updated before you even asked me!!! Hehehe. Please review!
Before she could even think about whether to turn around or to join them she felt a hand on her arm gripping her tightly.
"Where to you think you're going?" Bordy asked her as she turned to face him. He looked angry as his eyes darted towards the sons of Ipswich.
"I-I was looking for you," Ruby stuttered. She thought it would be best to lie since she didn't want a repeat of the other night. After all this time her bruise was still in the process of healing.
"Good!" said Bordy and he steered her towards the bar to get himself another drink, he was already on his second one. Neither Ruby nor Bordy noticed that Tyler was watching them or that he somehow managed to summon the strength to break his cue stick in half as he saw them walk away together.
"Come on, let's go find Aaron," he said as he took a sip of his beer.
She let him lead her towards another room as she downed her drink in one gulp and put the glass down on the nearest table. She felt her anger rise as he placed his hand at the small of her back to guide her. The anger was directed more towards herself than to him, she didn't like how she was acting like a doormat. She was sick of being a pushover. She should be able to hang out with who she wanted and she shouldn't be scared of Bordy. But she was. She couldn't deny it. As the days passed he was beginning to remind her more and more of Josh and his pathetic followers. As they made their way over to the couch that Aaron and his mates were sitting on, Ruby decided to take control. In one quick movement she stepped away from Bordy determined to do what she wanted.
"I'm going to find Hannah!" she said firmly and then whipped around and walked quickly out of the room. Bordy stared after her angrily but didn't follow her. On her way to find Hannah and the gang, she bumped into a girl she had never met before. She was tall, with long wavy red hair and she was dressed to kill. Short skirt, tight top, tall boots and thick eyeliner. Practically every guy was looking her way and Ruby wondered what it was that made her dress like this. The girl was just asking to be treated like a prostitute. Not that Ruby wasn't guilty of wearing revealing clothes sometimes, but that was just so people's eyes would drawn to her top half and not to the part that she felt made her look like a cow.
"Oh sorry," she began to apologise.
"Watch where you're going!" snapped the red haired girl. She looked Ruby up and down as if she were not worthy of her time. "You know honey if you lay off the ice-cream, you'd actually be able to judge the distance between you and another person more accurately."
Ruby swallowed hard and felt the tears begin to form in her eyes. She looked around and saw that a few people were looking at them. She began to think that things were never going to change, no one would stick up for her and she was going to end up just like she was back home. The fat loser that everyone would pick on.
Suddenly she felt a warm hand on her shoulder.
"Is there a problem here?" Hannah asked. "You're not being rude to my friend here, are you Kira?" Ruby turned around and looked at Hannah in surprise. She couldn't believe that someone was actually defending her. She saw that the rest of the group were standing behind Hannah, a few of them had their arms crossed and were glaring at this girl whose name was apparently Kira.
And that was all she needed to be confident enough to stick up for herself.
"No Han, she was just showing me the latest fashion for hookers, she was about to tell me which street corner she would be walking later on tonight." Ruby smirked and saw Kira's eyes narrow.
"Why you little bitch!" Kira stepped forward until there was no space between them. "Stay out of my way Tubby; I could make life hell for you here if I wanted." She spoke in a dangerously low tone. But Ruby wasn't afraid; in fact she was sick of people trying to push her around. She took a step backwards and made a face as if she was disgusted.
"You know Kira; you might consider a breath mint." The people around them laughed. "What is your problem anyway?" But she didn't give Kira a chance to answer. "Oh I see what's going on here. It's ok Kira I've had to deal with this kind of thing a lot, and you know, I'm flattered and everything, but you're just not my type." The people around them continued to laugh.
Kira's cheeks went red. "I am not a lesbian," she spat out. "And if I were, do you seriously think I would go for a girl who is best friends with her refrigerator?"
Ruby felt her cheeks go red also.
"Well do you seriously think that I would be intimidated by someone who can't even afford a whole dress? What are you trying to do? Get raped? Its girls like you who give us women a bad name. Some of us actually respect ourselves enough to -"
But she was cut off as Kira lunged at her knocking her to the ground. She felt a sharp sting across her cheek as Kira slapped her.
"You stupid bitch!" Kira yelled and grabbed Ruby's hair.
"Oh my God, Kira what is wrong with you!" Hannah tried to pull Kira off. Ruby surprised them all by hitting Kira back.
"Get off me you whore!" Ruby couldn't contain her anger, she let all the negative feelings she had experienced since moving to Ipswich envelop her and she took it out on the bitch who dared insult her over something as trivial as accidently bumping into her. Things went blurry as she let the rage course through her veins, all she saw was Kira. They rolled around on the floor hitting and pulling and punching and grabbing. Ruby didn't notice when the music stopped, she didn't notice when Tyler and his gang entered the room and she didn't notice when some random drunk guy called to his friend to come watch them.
"Hey dude, check it out! Cat fight!"
It all stopped when Aaron entered the room and pulled Kira off his little sister.
"Kira, what the hell do you think you're doing?"
"Teaching this little cow a lesson! What's wrong baby?" asked Kira confused. Aaron would never usually care if she acted this way.
Aaron's eyes became two little slits and Kira took a step backwards, she was surprised and scared at his anger.
"That's my sister you're talking about," he practically growled. Kira's eyes widened in surprise. "Apologise to her right now!"
"I'm sorry," Kira said quickly to Ruby.
Ruby didn't answer; in fact Ruby wasn't even looking at Kira. She was staring at Aaron wide eyed.
"She's you're girlfriend?" she asked her brother. Her eyes moved to Bordy who was standing next to Aaron. "He's your friend," she then looked at Kira. "And she's your girlfriend." Her eyes then drifted to Tyler who was staring at her and then back to Aaron.
"He was right," she said. "Judging by the people you surround yourself with, you're an asshole!"
Her brother's mouth flew open in surprise. A couple of the people watching gasped. No one ever talked to Aaron like that unless they wanted a beating.
He stepped forward, but she stepped backwards quickly and raised her hand.
"Don't touch me! Don't talk to me and don't follow me!" she whipped around and pushed her way through the shocked crowd of people. As she made her way to the front door, she passed the stereo and turned it back on. The music began pumping loudly once more.
"Don't worry Aaron, I'll make sure she's safe and I'll drive her back to the dorms," said Hannah and she left to get her keys. Aaron nodded and turned to glare at Kira and then walked away. She followed him.
Reid turned to his best friend. "Is it wrong that that cat fight totally turned me on?"
Tyler rolled his eyes. "Come on let's go make sure she's ok."
