My beautiful Ruby (2/7)

Jessica was heartbroken when she found a letter to a girl in her boyfriend’s blazer.

Jessica read the words with tears in her eyes and pain in her heart, even though the letter was just a few lines long. How could JP do this to her? After they’d been together nearly six months!

My beautiful Ruby. That’s how the letter began. My beautiful Ruby. And just who was this Ruby? There was no Ruby at school, or among the Matrics! So where did JP know her from? And how long had he been sending her letters like this one? My beautiful Ruby, We only shared one night together. But one night is all it takes to fall in love forever. One night is all it takes to change your life for all time! There will never be anyone else . . .

Every word was like a knife stabbing into Jessica’s chest. She pulled her school tie off her head and stuffed it into her pocket. This was not what life was all about: finding love letters that your boyfriend was writing to someone else!

JP came back into the room with two glasses of Coke. But Jessica turned and ran out of his house, out of his gate. She could hear him calling her name, but she went on running. Tears were burning their way down her cheeks.
