Diminishing Hate, Growing Love (One Direction Fanfic)

CREDIT TO MY FRIEND EMILY for writing this introduction kinda into the story because I was having difficulties :P

And also this story is inspired by a fan fic called Hired For Styles written by one of my favorite authors, @fanficsforbabes. My story is a different take on being hired to date Harry so you all should check hers out!

Since the first day of school, Emma has been dreaming of attending a world ranked college. For twelve long years, she has poured her heart into her studies to insure her spot at Harvard College in Cambridge but one obstacle stands in the way. Her parents have no way to pay for such a prestigious college. Emma runs out of hope.
Just when she thinks all is lost, she finds herself outside a One Direction concert at her high school. Everything about them makes her seethe with hatred: how they flaunt their money, feed their egos, even simply doing what they're paid to do. Who would've guessed that just sitting against that lonesome brick wall would chang


11. Jealous and Unfair Friends

~Chapter 10- Jealous and Unfair Friends~
"Hi. So I invited you guys over because I really needed someone to talk to." My voice nervously trembled when I spoke the words to Jade and Alyssa. I didn't want to break but unfortunately enough, I was close to that point. 

Jade wasn't looking at me. She was concentrated towards her phone instead of giving me her attention. I could tell she was listening though because she wasn't actually texting or doing anything with her fingers.

After running out on Alyssa and I the other day all mad, she finally came around and apologized. Although, when she did it was almost like she was holding something back like it could have been a fake apology or even an only half sincere one. I let it go though, thankful to have her back. 

Alyssa on the other hand had her eyes intently focused on my face, waiting anxiously for me to continue. 

I let a sigh out. It was for two reasons: 1) Jade had become so distanced and spacey recently and I was starting to get worried. And 2), everything new that was going on in my life had started to wear me down. I had started losing sleep over the past few days. Nothing but talking with my friends could help me with that. And of course dealing with... Harry. 

I continued. "Harry and I almost kissed." Both Alyssa and Jade let in a gasp. My eyes flew to Jade, she most likely didn't mean that to come out. Her eyes were still on her phone. 

Going on I said slowly, "It wasn't the first time though. We almost kissed at Disneyland but I pulled away, the same thing happening at the beach two days ago as well."

Two days had passed since the beach and I kept making excuses to Olivia that I had family things planned and couldn't go on a date with Harry. 

Coming back to the story, I went on. "I couldn't I just couldn't kiss him. On top of Gabriella being hurt, I didn't want to be hurt myself if I ended up falling for him." After finishing my ramble, Alyssa decided to speak. 

"Emma, I am going to he honest here, okay?" I nodded. 

"I think those were good decisions. I don't want you hurt either or I would personally have to kick his you know what and I would rather not having to do that. He seems dangerous..." She trailed off. 

"I just-it-I- It was so romantic... I wanted to but thinking about it now, I'm not sure why. I think I got caught up in the moment." 

"HOW COULD YOU?! HOW COULD YOU DO THAT TO GABRIELLA?!" Jade threw her hands up, her phone releasing from her grip only to fly out of my room. She was infuriated, absolutely pissed. "HOW COULD YOU THINK OF HAVING FEELINGS FOR THE GUY THAT BROKE HER HEART?!" She paced back and forth, yelling. 

Cautiously, I got up. "Where is this coming from Jade? I came to you guys for help and I was hoping not to be yelled at... I know it's not right. That's why I need you guys to be there with me..." Tears started to roll down my cheeks and my throat hitched. 

"Try thinking things out before you do them next time, Emma. Maybe you will hurt less people that way." With that, Jade stormed out of my room and forcefully slammed the door shut behind her. 

That took me over the edge. I released sob after sob and collapsed onto my bed while Alyssa quietly rubbed my back. 

"Emma, it will be okay. I think she might be having issues. Some of what she said was right, though; You have to understand that. What you are doing isn't okay."

I wiped my eyes. "Well if you are on her side then you can get out of my room and out of my house! Leave, Alyssa." 

She was taken aback. "You don't really mean that do you?" Her voice rose questioningly. 

"Ya, I think I do." I couldn't look at her when I told this. How could she be on Jade's side in this? I needed help and she was making me feel worse! My finger pointed to the door as I stared out my bedroom window.

Clouds gathered menacingly outside in dark grey packs, mirroring my emotions. The sun was no where near visible and droplets of rain started pelleting down on the cement outside my house. As they hit our pool, ringlets formed around them and vibrated outwards, almost as if sending a signal to the rest of the pool that it's raining. 

I felt the bed release as she got up and silently gathered her things. She paused. I could tell she was speaking at my direction as she said this but my back was still facing her:

"Just so you know, I'm not on Jade's side. I'm just trying to help you through this which is what you wanted. When you want help because you have realized you are in over your head with this and that I am right, just be careful when you come crawling back to me because I might not be so forgiving." Her words dripped with disgust but at the same time hurt. 

As soon as she walked out the door, I regretted it. I still felt she was being unfair but I know I shouldn't have blown up like that. 

Letting out a deep sigh, I combed my fingers through my hair. As my back fell onto the bed, I rolled to my side as tears dribbled out of my eyes. I drifted off to sleep thinking about the whole situation. 

~Author's Note~ 

Hey guys so I know I kinda suck for not updating for two weeks. It's not much of an excuse but I've been super busy having water polo practices twice a day which causes me to be exhausted and all. It's also not a particularly long chapter but I needed to update for you guys. 

One other thing. I'm not sure if they are just rumors or not but something very disturbing happened yesterday having to do with a documentary called Crazy About One Direction that appeared on Channel 4 in the UK. It portrayed us directioners as psycho people and it particularly hit Larry shippers. It is rumored that a handful of Larry Shippers did suicide for being bullied and that is absolutely not okay. People should be allowed to have any opinions they want to. I want to say if you ever feel unneeded, unwanted, or hurt/threatened, you can talk to me. I know I may not personally know you but I don't want anyone committing or attempting suicide for being bullied. 

Now that I got that rant out, tell me what you think about the chapter!!

Luv ya mah peeps!
