(This movella is set as if One Direction isn't famous.)
Ashalee York was always one to try and hide away, she only showed who she really was to her one friend Jay. Ashalee is shy, and a good girl (who sometimes likes to bend the rules) and she is insecure about herself. Ashalee is your average girl in every way on the outside. But on the inside she deals with the constant struggle, the rage on inside of her mind, she's bipolar. It may be fate, chance, destiny, or whatever you call it but she finds herself mixed up with Harry Styles who wants to show her that she doesn't have to close people out. But he doesn't know about the mental war the wages deep within her mind and maybe if he did know he would leave her and label her as a freak like the rest of society.


34. A Gift to You

Harry's POV

I watched Ash as her hands tore at the presents I got her, I mean the presents me and Louis got her. Her eyes lit up as her hands grazed the rocks.

"Harry, what is this?"

"Louis said something about how you wanted some rainbow rocks."

I ran a hand through my curls and smiled uncontrollably. I wanted her to explain what theses rocks were for but I didn't want to rush the moment so I kept my thoughts to myself.

"I can add these to my jar." She giggled like an excited little girl. I grabbed her hand an intertwined our fingers. That noise so desperately adorable. I put my lips on her palm, it wasn't a kiss I just brushed my lips across her hand making her giggle even more. I've begun to cherish each of these moments. I don't ever want them to end but what if they do, I'll have memories.

Ash looked up at me, "I guess you probably don't know what my 'jar' is."

I nodded in confirmation.

"Well," she explained, "I have this 'happiness jar' and every time I feel happy I add some pebbles to it."

I wanted to know more, "Is it full?"


I looked at her and then I realized we weren't the only ones in the room. Louis was looking at us,

"Lovebirds." He joked.

Zayn tagged along, "Ashalee and Harry kissin' in a tree, K-I-S-S-I-N-G,"

Ash put her head down in embarrassment.

"What are you seven?" I teased him back.

I shoved a second present into Ash's arms. I mean she was still in awe over the first one but I wanted to see that reaction over again, the one of childish delight.

"This must be present number three then?" She asked. I nodded.

Her hands were a little more gentle, soft fingertips maneuvered under the creases of my terrible gift wrapping. She lifted the folds and squealed.

"New paint!"

I had done it. She was elated.

"Oh my gosh, my other paint was okay but this is grade A stuff right here."

I didn't see a difference, but the sales guy who helped me find it told me it was the kind of stuff professionals used and I got it for a steal. For the holidays everything is discounted so I got it for 75% off.

She shifted to give me a quick kiss. Jay and Niall were no where to be found.

"Where is Ni and Jay?" Ash asked while reaching for the rocks again looking at them with a permanent smile.

"They went for a romantic stroll in the snow covered park not to far from here." answered Liam.

I groaned, "So has Niall asked her out yet or what?"

"Not yet mate, maybe he'll do it in the park." Liam shrugged.

My attention went back to Ash, she looked at me and gave this little chuckled and turned to a plate of cookies sitting there abandoned on the coffee table.
