(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.


44. He's Gay

Harry's POV
I hated Brent. The way he was all over her bed eating cookies, the way she didn't move away from him. He kept staring at me, and I just wanted to...Ugh, I don't know.

Ashalee was annoyed by me I could tell. In school she's been distant and not exactly talking to me. But she is always laughing and giggling with Brent. He's always hugging her and playfully brushing his lips on her cheek. Whenever me and Ash are together he'll look at me. Stare at me, and I just want to ask him: What the hell are you looking at?

 She was upset by my confrontation but I didn't push it anymore I didn't want to upset her more. Not until she cooled down, I just hinted every now and again if she was taking her medication which was always answered with a huff and a yes.

Dawn had informed me that he was friends with some guys over at another high school and they invited him to a party. Of course, it was the traditional: parents are out of town for the weekend and so as soon as they leave down the street it's time to party kind of parties.

I was gonna to make it up to Ash and we were going to have fun.

I couldn't believe when I asked her I didn't have to convince her, but her only condition was that Jay and Brent could come. I saw this coming, it was like a bad sitcom.

Of course I said yes to make her happy but inside it was like hell.


The car ride there was awkward. Brent and Jay quietly talked in the back with Ash joining in. I was left out sitting there driving, I mean I wasn't going to join in any conversation with this bozo. I caught Brent looking at me in my rearview mirrors every now and again.

When we pulled up the heavy bass of the music could be heard thumping through the walls. Sweaty, intoxicated teenagers were hanging outside and pouring inside. I'd give this party two hours tops before the cops show up due to noise complaints from neighbors.

I grabbed Ash's hand pulling her close to me, I brushed my lips on top of her head making sure Brent saw. His eyes moved over to Jay, but Niall had a thing out for her. This guy wasn't going to stop. I called to Jay,

"How's Niall been?" I tried to sound as casual as possible.

"He's dreamy," Jay began, "holy shit did I just say that out loud?"

A slow redness began to engulf her cheeks. Ash reached out and poked Jay in the stomach. Brent laughed and draped an arm around Jay's shoulders and pulled her into a headlock ruffling her hair.

"Someone's hopped up on puppy love," Brent teased.

I tensed up, Ash looked at me feeling the muscles in my arms contract.

Inside the house we saw Dawn, sitting down next to some guys I haven't seen before.

Brent scanned them over. I had let go of Ash's hand and Brent reached out to squeeze it. He whispered something in her ear, she giggled and playfully bumped his hip with hers. He pressed his lips to a quick peck on her head.

"Dude," I called to him.

Brent looked over me, I flicked my head motioning for him to come over to me. Jay and Ashalee began talking to Dawn asking when the next football game was.

Brent stood in front of me, he was a bit shorter than my by a few inches. I rebelled in this extra height.

"Hey Harry what's up?"

"Lay off Ashalee." I bluntly stated.

Brent began laughing, this bastard thought this was funny? "Ashalee said you were jealous of me but no need, I'm-"

He didn't finish, I wasn't about to let him say, I'm just a friend.

My fist connected with his face and he fell letting out a girlish squeal.

Everyone stopped, the bodies grinding around us stopped, Ashalee screamed and Jay ran to aid Brent. Dawn looked me in the eye, he mouthed, "What?"

Every thing stood still except for the sound of the bass thumping under out feet.


Ashalee joined Brent on the floor her cupping his face. His nose was bleeding.

"He was hitting on you, he kissed you on the forehead. His moves weren't obvious but they were there. Your my girlfriend!" I explained.

"Harry, Brent is gay. He'd rather have a boyfriend. He doesn't want me or any girl. I tried to tell you."

That's what Brent was going to say, not I'm just a friend, but I'm gay.

Ashalee clenched her fists and looked down back a Brent.
