The Styles Project

Ashton Peterson, your average sixteen year old girl, but she's moving half way across the world! She likes her new neighbor Niall, but starts falling for Harry Styles, and their worst enemy Zayn. Here's the question, will she fall in love, get hurt or will something unexplained happen?


9. Class

Ashton's P.O.V.


Well after lunch I had reading, which was boring but me and Niall passed notes back and forth the whole time. Then P.E. wasn't so bad. We ran the whole time conditioning for running for the 3 miles test and Niall was beside me the whole time. Math seemed easy. I sat by Zayn and Liam. Zayn gave me his number and told me to call him after school. Harry seemed to be distant from everybody after lunch. I don't know what his deal was, but I felt kinda bad.

I was now on my way to social studies. Niall helped me find out where my class was. As we walked in, there was posters everywhere. Guns, WWI, presidents, etc. It seemed pretty up beat. But I'm not a very big fan of social studies though.

"Hello class. Please take a seat." said a tall bald man who was probably the teacher. I went to go sit down by Niall then I heard the teacher go," We seemed to have a new student. Ashton Peterson. Please come up here." I did as he said. "Hello, I'm Mr. Bradley. Class say 'hello'."

"Hi" said the whole class. I waved back.

"Ok you can take a seat right there between Harry and Tabi." He said pointing. I nodded and went over there and sat down. Harry looked at me and smiled. He sat on my right and Tabi sat on my left.

"Social Studies shouldn't be so boring anymore with you here." Harry said winking at me. I blushed and smiled at him.

"Alrighty, well today we are going to be learning about WWI guns." Mr. Bradley said.

I looked down at my note book and saw at the corner of my desk I had a note. I opened it and it read:

Nice to meet you Ashton! I'm Tabi! So. I see you and Niall know each other really well. See, I like him, like, ALOT. If you wouldn't mind, do you think you could get us to.. you know... become more than friends? Thanks!

I looked at her and she smiled. I smiled back. She had long brown hair and bright blue eyes with a hint of green around her pupil. She also had some freckles. I gave her back the note and I had wrote my number on there and told her to call me after school.

Sooner than you knew it the bell rang. Tabi and I passed notes half the time. It was boring in there. I got up and Harry was waiting for me by my desk. I looked back at Tabi and she looked at me and said, "What do you have next?"

"I have Drama."

"Oh, well I have art." She said. I looked at her and I guess she knew what I was thinking and she went, "I know! I have it with Niall!" She squealed. I looked past her and saw Niall starring at someone behind me. I turned around saw Harry starring down Niall. They wouldn't even budge. Then they finally stopped starring once I got all of my stuff.

Harry looked at me and said, "Here I'll show you where drama is." He grabbed my hand and just like that we were out the door.

We made it to Drama in the nick-of-time before the bell rang. It was clear across the freaking school! Harry didn't really say much. You could tell something was on his mind. He was practically dragging my there. Well, not really. I mean, we were side-by-side, but he was.. holding my hand. It felt awkward because he was walking really fast with a serious look on his face and it was hard tryin to keep up the boy.

He sat me down next to him. "What the hell was that for?" I whispered.

"What are you talking about?" he said.

I starred at him blankly then said, "You. You practically dragged me here! And that whole starring Niall down thing. What the hell's going on Harry?!" I was practically shouting now. 

"What the fuck Ashton!" Harry yelled at me making me jump. Luckily no one heard. My eyes got really big. It shocked me that he really just said that to me. Nobody has ever talked to me like that before.. Ever. I could feel my eyes getting puffy and my eyes were watery. Harry's face softened. "No Ashton, I didn't mean it. I swear." He pulled me into a soft, warm hug and he smelt very good. "I'm sorry." He pulled me off of him and looked at me right in the eyes. " No, please don't cry." He said with his eyes going red and puffy to.

"I won't." I said and wiped a tear that ran down my face.

"I really am sorry. I didn't mean to yell at you or hurt you."

"No, it's fine." I said and smiled at him. I couldn't stay mad at him. I mean, look at the guy!

Harry smiled and pulled me into another hug. "Thank you." Was all he said when the teacher came in.

"Hello class!"

"Hello Mrs. Nichols." They all said at the same time.

"Sorry I'm late. I got stuck down in a meeting." Mrs. Nichols said, "and Ashton Peterson please raise your hand." I raised my hand high so she could see me in the back row. "Everybody, that's Ashton."

Everybody looked at me then turned around.

"Anyway, we are going to be working on a skill where you stand directly in front of someone and mirror their actions. Jessica, come here and let us do an example." A girl walked up there and stood in front of her. Mrs. Nichols moved her right hand up slowly enough to where Jessica could move it right by the side. The she moved her arm out straight out then all the way up with Jessica still following her lead. They both stopped. "Does everybody understand?" People nodded their heads up and down. "Ok partner up and stand anywhere in the room."

Harry grabbed my hand and we went over to a corner where nobody could see us. To be honest, the room was really big. Probably your average learning room times two.

Harry and I decided to start out with our hands right by each other to where our arms looked like a field goal. "So about earlier," He said our hands still moving in rhythm, " Um. I just, I don't know how to explain."

"Explain what?" I asked looking into his eyes. Our faces were about ,maybe shorter, a good arms length away. If I put my arm in front of him and my hand on his chest. That's how far apart we were.

He thought for a moment. He took a deep breath and said, "Do you fancy Niall?"

"Huh?" I said.

Harry rolled his eyes. "Do you like him. As in like like him?"

Why was he asking me this? "Oh... I don't know. He's my neighbor." I said.

Harry looked confused. "It's a simple question. Yes or no." He said scooting a little closer to me.

"Well. I know another girl who likes him. So.." I thought for a second. Do I really like Niall? I mean, I don't want to get to close to him. He's my neighbor. And plus Tabi liked him. I couldn't do that to her. "No." I said.

Harry smirked looking down. " So who do you like?" he said as he got really close to me. Close enough to where I could smell his cologne type of close. Like If you put you hand in front of your face and your arm in the shape of an 'L' close. I actually kinda liked it.

I looked up at him. His eyes sparkled. His skin looked so soft. Sooner than I knew it our hands were touching and he intertwined our fingers together. He leaned in slowly our lips only a few inches away. I could feel his breath on my neck. This is it, I thought, we're really going to kiss. Do I really want to do it? We both closed our eyes almost close enough to touch then,


The bell rang and me and Harry jumped away from each other. He looked at me and smiled. I smiled back blushing and looked down. We were so close to kissing each other! Ugh! Stupid bell!

Harry cleared his throat. I looked up at him, "Shall we go?" He said, " We can walk to my house. Its just a couple blocks away."

"Then why did Niall give you a ride this morning?"

"Oh I stayed with him last night."

"Oh," I said. "Sure."

And out the door we went straight to my locker.
