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


13. Shocking Realizations

~Chapter 12-Shocking Discoveries~

-Nightmare Flashback-

My hand hesitated in front of the door. Second thoughts were running through my mind. Maybe I should wait a little longer... Another couple days maybe a week wouldn't hurt, would it? My mind battled itself. NO, I told myself. I'm doing this now. No more procrastinating. 

Knock, knock, knock. I tapped my toes and fidgeted my hands while waiting for someone to answer the door. Footsteps echoed in the hall inside their house, becoming louder as they approached the door. It opened with a creak. 

"Oh, hi Bryn. Nice to see you again." Gabriella's mom spoke awkwardly, not making complete eye contact. She was at a medium height, 5'4", but even standing on the step inside the house didn't make her taller than my 5'9" stature. She had blonde hair like her daughter but instead of curls, it was styled in a short bob. Whenever I visited Gabriella's house, I always remembered where she got her stunning looks from. 

"Mrs. Lenon, I want to apologize. I know I haven't been here or to visit Gabriella in the hospital since she..." My voice traveled off. I didn't really want to say the word in front of her mom, afraid it would pain her too much. I started again. 

"It's just that I went through a bit of denial after I found out. I didn't know how I could miss her being depressed or acting depressed and I just felt like such a horrible friend. And I figured Gabriella wouldn't want a horrible friend like that visiting her at the hospital or even when she got out. But I realized I had to do something, anything, because not visiting at all after these two weeks would make me an even worse friend. I felt so guilty. So I'm here to say I'm sorry and I hope you and Gabriella can find some way to forgive me." 

Mrs. Lenon's face was a little more relaxed and easygoing after I finished what I had come to say but not so easygoing as she would let my screwup slip. 

"Thank you for your apology, Emma, but I'm not sure Gabriella should have you here." My heart fell and I looked at my feet, only to be interrupted and have my eyes snap to the top of the stairs inside the house. 

"Please let her in mum, I'd like to talk to her." Gabriella's voice begged for her mom to step aside and invite me in, which she did just a little less willingly. 

My feet led me up the stairs and into her room behind her as tears threatened to drop from my eyes. 

"Gabriella, I don't know how many times I can say sorry. Really I am." The tears puddled up and started flowing. "Oh I'm so stupid. Here you are the one supposed to be getting better yet I'm the one crying." I took several very deep breaths and wiped my eyes.

"Bryn, it's alright. I forgive you. You wouldn't have known anyways. I need to tell you what happened." 

"Really? You forgive me?" I sniffled. Jeez I sound like such a baby. 

"Ya," she nodded with a slight smile. 

"AH I LOVE U FOREVER!" I attacked her in a massive hug and when finished, I went on to say, "Okay, go ahead."

"So, the day before I attempted 'it'... Harry well... He broke up with me. And for no reason at all. He just broke it off randomly, he didn't even tell me in person. He texted me it. I was in love with him and thought he loved me too." Her face was hard when she said this. 

"I know you are going to say I told you so because I know you told me he was bad news all along. But it just felt so right at the time..."

"I wasn't going to say that." I replied. I wrapped her in my arms again, giving her a big bear hug. "I'm sorry this happened to you. I'm really really really sorry, Gabriella. It's not fair I know. But when life gets you down, it's your job to get back up again." 

Harry. This all came back to Harry. I swear I will get that boy one day. He broke my friend. Ill break him.

Telling her these things and hearing her say she loved Harry and thought he loved her too made me think about my relationship with Will as I consoled her the rest of the day.

-End of Nightmare/Flashback-

I lay in bed. This nightmare had been a new one. I normally had the same recurring nightmares from London, but not this one. I thought about my relationship with Will once again.

I told myself I loved him and would hear myself say he loved me too. He had been acting a little weird after everyone got news of Gabriella's attempt. I always played it off and told myself him, like I, was still recovering from our best friend being hurt. Will had gotten to be good friends with Gabriella too when I started dating him. 

If only I had known at that time why he'd been acting strange.

And when I looked at Gabriella's eyes what was shown in them was surprising. If only I'd payed more attention to why her eyes showed glints of remorse and guilt I would have saved myself from a lot of pain and hardship. 

Sorry bout the cliffhanger ;) 

WHO SAW THIS IS US??!! COMMENT IF YOU HAVE AND TELL ME YOUR FAVORITE PART and the saddest part for you. I would love to know! The saddest part for me was when Liam's dad talked about him being the only lad in the house and how he missed Liam along with Zayn talking to his mum on the phone about the new house. I CRIED.
