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


5. My Sanctuary

~Chapter 5- My Sanctuary~

8:00. My clock read 8:00. I slammed my hand onto the top of the clock, stopping it from beeping once more to signal me that my alarm had gone off. I rolled my feet to the side of me and off the bed, my body following soon after.

I dressed myself in light washed denim shorts, green high top converse, and a short see-through blue navy shirt with polka dots that tied above my shorts.

I needed time to think; a place to think. It came to my mind then, why hadn't I thought of it before?

Content with my outfit, my fingers grasped the keys located above my light switch and I left the house soon after.


My foot pressed on the gas pedal of my family's old, roofless, dirty blue jeep. I hoped to get it out of the house and back before my parents woke up. They tended to go downstairs at about 10 in the morning for coffee and breakfast which left me about an hour and 45 minutes.

I reached the hill and parked the Jeep. Before I left, I threw a couple towels in the back so I could sit on the grass and weeds up here without getting a rash.

I laid down on the towels, propping my head up by folding my arms. I gazed out over the hills and the city behind them.

The Oak trees covered the hills in green tufts. They always reminded my of broccoli from far away for some reason, although I never knew why.

(A/N if anyone thinks trees on hills far away look like broccoli too inbox me or comment cuz I literally want to make sure I'm not weird lol. I love feedback :P)

The sounds of nature filled my ears, enough to succumb anyone to peace. Inhaling deeply, I took it all in.

The bushes and plants dotted in between the trees gave the ground color. Violets sprouted here and there while in other places, California poppies added orange to the mix.

Bluebirds and swallows chirped endlessly, new songs and tweets bursting from their beaks.

Hawks played predator and circled above the hills looking for their prey to make a tasty dinner for the night. They glided effortlessly upon the shafts of air, their wings catching the shafts so perfectly all they had to do was hold their wings out.

Below them, squirrels pranced between the trees, searching for nuts to eat making squeaks here and there.

And even smaller were the insects. Ants scurried and scuttled between the grains of dirt and twigs, heading to their Queen to bring her food and water.

This place... This is my sanctuary. This is where I come when I WANT to get lost in nature. I succumbed willingly to its powers and let my thoughts wash over my brain.

I wanted to forget about the nightmare I had and the situation I was in.

My time here ended too soon though and I made my way back to our Jeep, but not before a text interrupted my steps.

The ID showed Olivia.

"You will have to do better than that," It read. My stomach churned as I opened the attachments that came with the text. They were all from the front page of magazines, and all about Harry and I.

One showed me holding hands with Harry and read, "Does Harry have a new girl to keep? Or is she just another toy he will throw away?"

My fingers scrolled through the several pictures as I came to the last one. There were two pictures side by side. One was of us holding hands walking in to the restaraunt together, smiling, and the second was me storming out without him.

Okay Olivia, I thought to myself. You are right; I guess I will have to do better than that.
