The Worthless Gem30 May, 2016 03:37 AM
(I'm a guy so just imagine that is is happening in a Steven Universe episode but this actually happened)
It all started a long time ago in a school at HomeWorld. The gem named Ruby (me but not my real name) entered the first period classroom. He was a shy gem and rather wanted to work alone. His usual seat was the back corner of the classroom, which was kinda sad for everyone, but they didn't seem to care at all. Ruby was getting ready for class to start until he met...the most beautiful gem (person) he has ever seen!! She sat at the front of the room, which was kinda of a bummer for Ruby since he sat at the back. But he noticed that the new gem was a nerd too!!! Just like him!!! He would say to himself that at Lunch, he will talk to the new gem.
Lunch came. Every table was full except for the table in the corner of the cafeteria. Ruby was about to sit until he saw the new gem sitting at the table!! His hands were starting to sweat, he had butterflies in his stomach, he was blushing like crazy!!! He sat next to the gem and greeted her. "H-Hello...", Ruby said with some awkwardness. "...Hi..." The new gem said. "I'm Ruby...w-what's your name?" "Sapphire...", The new gem said in a shaky voice. Ruby was feeling kinda awkward about the situation. "Soooo....d-do you wanna hang out....", Ruby said in a nervous tone. "S-sure...I like that." Sapphire smiled shyly and got up to throw away the trash. Ruby was thinking that this was going well.
After school, Ruby and Sapphire were walking home together, until Sapphire asked "....R-Ruby...?" "Hmmm?" Ruby replied. "D-did you ever had a girlfriend before...?" Ruby blushed madly about the question, but replied anyway. "*sigh* Never...I'm just not good enough for any girl." Sapphire just looked at him, and grabbed his hand. "Don't say that...y-you are worth it..." And with that said, she kissed Ruby. He never had a first kiss before, but this...was something special. He wrapped his arms around her waist and kissed her back. "You're just perfect to me.." Sapphire said. And with that. Ruby slept happily.
A year passed. Ruby was texting to Sapphire about Steven and Peridot dating (Hey I ship it XD) and she texted back, "They look so cuuuute together!!!" Ruby laughed so hard and replied with a lol. When Ruby went outside his home, he saw something that had changed him forever. He saw...his girlfriend...kissing another gem (boy)..... "S-Sapphire....?" Ruby said with tears in his eyes. "R-Ruby!!! T-This is not what it looks like!!!" "....I can't believe it....I actually thought that...I could find true love...now I know...that I'm meaningless..." Ruby ran back to his house, shut the door and started crying.
A few months had passed. Sapphire did not recieve any replies from Ruby on Kik. Heck, she did not even seem him at school today. She asked his only friend if he has seen Ruby. "Sorry girl, haven't seen him today. He looked horrible!!! Slits, bruises,..." He was about to tear up and Sapphire ran to Ruby's house. "Ruby!!!!" She knocked on the door as hard as she could, but no answer. Sapphire broke the window, opened the door, and ran to Ruby's door until she found a note.
"To whom it may concern (nobody),
....I have had it with all of the bullshit in this world. Getting rejected, bullied...maybe everyone is right....even the girl of my dreams....I am worthless...I've always have been....but do not worry for me...all of you will be happy without me...
Ruby The Worthless Nerd..."
Sapphire had tears falling down. "R-Ruby...?" She opened the door....only finding the body of the poor nerd hanging on the ceiling. Slits, bruises, and a traced broken heart on his chest covered in stab marks and blood. She was paralized in fear and guilt. She fell on her knees and started crying loudly. "I'm sorry Ruby!!! Please forgive me!!!" But what she did not see was the corpse of the nerd smiling sadly, like he was saying, "I'm free...free from the darkness...now I can make everyone happy...by not existing..."
