(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.


31. Clocks and Rocks

Harry's POV
My mates were helping me and Niall get something for Ashalee and Jay. The holidays were coming up fast.

Niall is going to ask Jay out anytime now, I caught him talking to Ashalee asking what is something that Jay wants for Christmas. She wants this perfume from this department store so Niall begged Zayn and Liam to go help him look for it. Ash had given Louis some ideas to 'suggest' to me that she wanted for the upcoming holiday.

A giant clock in the middle of the mall read: 3 more days until Christmas.

I wonder if Ash has seen the clock, it was crimson and a dark, inviting green. Golden ribbons dressed the clock and at the top lay a neat bow as if the clock was a present in itself.

I pulled out my phone and snapped a quick picture of it, maybe Ash had seen it before but I still wanted her to witness its beauty. I really liked it.

Louis told me that what Ashalee really wanted for Christmas was strange, she wanted rocks and paint. Not just any rocks though, in this gardening store they had these special rocks that were like 'mini rainbows' or at least that's how Louis said Ash called them; then she wanted paint. I've seen her paintings before they were quite good. I was going to find those rocks she wanted then go into this arts and crafts store I've seen once.

"Louis are you sure she wanted 'rainbow rocks'?"

"Yeah, she said it was like for, a jar."

"A jar?"

"Yeah, something about a jar being full."

I gave him this look, like: what the hell mate?

"I'm serious," he said holding his hands up like he had been just caught in a crime.

When we came into the store I asked the sales lady if she had any 'rainbow rocks'. I didn't want to spend all day searching for them and then having no time to get her the paints.

"Yes, I'll guide you to them."

The way her voice sounded so happy, reminded me of Miles. I gave a quick sniff, and wiped a fresh, glistening tear from my eye. Louis looked at me now it was his turn to give me the: 'what the hell mate?' look. I shook him off and followed the lady.

The rocks were like pebbles. Smooth and they seemed alive. I don't know. The lights of the store reflected the shimmering pebbles. They weren't like I had expected. Instead of like cheesy rainbow rocks that looked artifical they looked more purple-blue with little specks of red if you held them up. I grabbed a handful and smiled.

"She'll love them," I breathed.

The lady looked at me, smile lines, showing. I looked at her name tag: Samantha.

Samantha spoke up in her Miles voice, "They are $2.50 a pound, which is one standard size bag."

She pulled out a plastic bag, "Normally older people, like me, come in here looking for these here rocks to add em' to bird baths or gardens. Now what do you two young men want em' for?"

She smiled again, she didn't look like Miles, but her smile and voice made me feel like Miles was still here with me.

"My girlfriend." I responded, I pulled out my wallet, "I'll take a pound then."

She took out a little shovel from her apron which was caked with dirt, I guess she spend a lot of time in the plant section. She scooped a pound and then took it to the tell. She pulled out a scale and measured the rocks, the scale read exactly 1 pound.

"I measure it perfectly every single time." She took my money and handed me Ash's rocks.

"Most girls want other things like jewelry or trendy things for this season."

I looked at Mil-

I mean Samantha, "My girl is far from other girls mam' she is far different."

"People don't talk like that anymore son. Especially not teenagers like yourself."

"Well they should." Louis replied back to her, those were the same words I was going to say.


"Now let's go get Ash that paint." I told Louis.

I was giddy, I was extremely happy. Like I couldn't wait for Ash to open her gift from her and see it.

"Thanks man." I hugged Louis.

He peeled away from me, "Hey she hinted at me what to get her. I'm getting half of the credit for this stuff."

We met up with Niall, Zayn, and Liam in the food court.

"Boys, today was a successful."

We all laughed and joked and for the first time since I've been with Ash I felt like she was going to be nothing but happy and it will be because of me 100% all the way.
