Flirting with danger
A reunion at the club turns into a nightmare for Ruby!
Attending Martin’s high school reunion at E20 with him and Stacey is the perfect way for her old friend Ruby to celebrate her return to Walford for the rst time in 12 years. With the drinks and laughter owing, Ruby soon acquaints and irts with Martin’s schoolmates Matt, Glenn and Ross, taking a particular shine to
Ross. Eager to pursue him, Ruby stays on at the club after Martin and Stacey have left…
The next morning, Stacey catches up with Ruby, keen to know how her girlfriend’s night with the guys ended. Ruby doesn’t say much – but Stacey gets suspicious when she sees her buying the morning-after pill at the chemist! Sensing Ruby’s sheepishness, Stacey encourages her to tell all and is stunned when Ruby admits that although she willingly slept with Ross, when she woke up later Matt was having sex with her!
Berating herself for being drunk and not knowing what was going on, Ruby is in tears as Stacey comforts her, assuring she’s done nothing wrong as she was raped! Meanwhile, Martin gets the guys’ version of events over breakfast, but worries when they assure him that everything that happened was completely consensual.
Stacey seeks police advice and urges Ruby to go to the sexual health clinic and get checked before it’s too late. Stacey has also been a victim of rape in the past and doesn’t want to see Ruby go through the same hell. She has to tell the cops what Matt did to her!
