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?


43. Getting Ready

"HAPPY BIRHDAY ASHTON!" screamed a load of guys and girls running towards my locker through the hallway like maniacs with silly string, confetti, hats, etc., fuck, they even had a cupcake for me.

They came towards me out of breath making a semi-circle around me, leaving me trapped against the lockers. Louis and Sian pulled out one of those birthday horns that you put in your mouth and when you blow, the thing unrolls and it makes a weird noise and another one like it, but it was like a cone with strings at the end. Are you lost? Oh. okay..

Louis and Sian blew theirs and Harry and Niall had an actual horn, which they then pressed the button and off it went. Everybody looked at them like they were crazy. "What?" asked Niall. "Too soon?"

Everybody looked at each other and smirked. "Surprise!" exclaimed Liam while extending his hand and letting confetti fly everywhere. That made everybody else do the same while Harry got the silly string out and started spraying me with orange colored silly string. Niall did the same but with green and everybody else also with different colors.

I screamed in excitement and felt hands wrap around my waist and turn me around, making me face Harry who was laughing hysterically. He pulled me closer to him and was looking into my eyes. "Harry just kiss the damn girl already!" Louis yelled while he had an arm around Sian.

Harry looked back at me and leaned forwards to kiss me. I was expecting a joke but got an actual kiss. We pulled back and Tabi and Peyton came into view to start singing Happy Birthday. God I love these guys so much. Harry wrapped his arm around me while singing and I swear. His voice was so peaceful and amazing I almost died. After that Harry grabbed the cupcake and said, "Make a wish." and smiled, showing off his famous dimples.

I closed my eyes and wished. Wished for something I can't even say. (Remember that because it will be in Senior Year With Harry) I took in a deep breath and blew out the candle. I opened back up my eyes and everybody clapped. "What'd ya wish for Ash?" asked Niall.

I smiled. "Nothing special." I lied. It's totally special what the hell am I saying? I want that and that only. Along with other wishes but still. Just that.

Harry took out the candle and handed me the cupcake. "Eat up!" he smirked. "Oh and one more thing." Harry pulled out a Birthday Girl ribbon and put it on the left side of my chest. "There, now eat it!" he smiled.

I smile while unwrapping the wrapper around it and held it to my mouth. "Wow, chocolate! My-" and before I knew it, the cupcake was directly in my face. There was snickering and laughing coming from the boys. I chuckled and wiped my face off with the back off my hand. "Just be lucky were in school you guys." I licked my lips and the flavor of chocolate and icing came in my mouth. "Mm," I groaned, "Who made this?"

"Harry did." said Liam.

I looked at Harry whose face was red from laughing and he came over to me. "Yeah I did." he looked at me for a moment and said, "Awe I'm sorry baby I shouldn't have done that." he wrapped me up in his arms and held me.

"No it's fine." I insisted. "But you'll have payback!" I screamed, pulling out of the hug and smacking his face with leftover cupcake in my hand. I smeared it all over his face, with it getting in his hair.

Harry smiled and blew a puff of air out making his curls jump. He opened his eyes. "Okay I deserved it." We all laughed and Liam got out a hand towel and tossed it to us. Harry caught it with one hand and wiped his face off. He gave it to me to wipe my face off as the bell rang.

"Shit guys, we gotta go." I giggled, knowing we were going to get into trouble for being late AND looking like we got into a food fight ,with confetti also.

I walked into builders club with Harry, Tabi, and Niall as I just had gotten everything off my face and all of us were desperately trying to get confetti out of our hair and silly string off of us.

Niall ran his hands through his hair and Mrs. Stewart stopped talking mid sentence. She looked at us with a confused yet mad expression. Her jaw was moving up and down when she finally said something. "What were you- You know what? I don't even want to know. Go get cleaned up." she waved her hands towards the door.

"Yes ma'am." Harry said shaking his head, making confetti go everywhere. There were snickers here and there from people, including us as we walked out the door. But out of the corner of my eye I saw him.

Zayn. Zayn was smirking at me. Once I made direct eye contact with him he mouthed, 'Happy Birthday', winked then bit his lip and checked me out. I hid my face as we walked out and my smile vanished.

Harry pulled my chin up to look at him once we got to the bathrooms. "Babe what's wrong?" he asked gently while Niall and Tabi went into the bathrooms to get cleaned up.

"Nothing." I snapped, smacking his hand away from my chin and trying to walk into the girls bathroom.

"Hey," he growled grabbing my wrist and spinning me back around to face him. "I know that's a lie Ash. Come on. Tell me." he said with tears in his eyes. "I don't like seeing you like this. Please." Harry begged. "Please tell me."

I sighed as a tear rolled down my cheek. This shouldn't bother me at all but it does. Zayn has a girlfriend and he did that to me? Hell even did it when we were dating. "Zayn." I said.

"What'd he do Ash? Tell me." he said as calm as he could.

"This will probably sound stupid but he told me happy birthday." I replied trying to walk back into the bathroom.

But of course, Harry pulled me back. "There's more I know."

"Okay, fine. Promise you won't get mad?"

"Depends on what's being said." Harry said, crossing his arms.

"Ugh, okay he.... he winked and checked me out." I rolled my eyes just thinking about it again. This is stupid. Why couldn't I have just ignored it?

Harry tensed up. "How could that not get me mad!" he exclaimed.

Shit Ashton say something. "Hey! Just be glad I'm yours. And he knows that. I won't let him get to me okay?"

Harry let go and sighed. "Alright, well. Go get cleaned up." he smirked while smacking my butt.

I laughed and walked into the girls bathroom to see Tabi just getting finished cleaned up.

(Tabi's P.O.V.)


"Guys!" Louis screamed half way across the room, "Hurry up with the decorations! Ash should be here in two hours!"

I turned around and looked at Louis who was sitting down in a chair drinking tea and giving orders. "Why don't you get up and help lazy ass." I tell him while laughing.

"Oh god no! I'm totally fine with being a lazy ass cause this lazy ass isn't going anywhere." Louis said reclining back and taking a sip of tea.

"Um, yes you will." said a voice from the next room. "Your helping me, NOW!" Sian laughed.

Louis shot up and put down his tea. "Yes darling!" he said running off.

I laughed to myself as I started unwrapping the letters for the banner we were going to hang up on the stair case. Then there were hands wrapped around my waist and I immediately knew who it was. "Hello love." said a sweet irish voice. "What are you doing?"

"Trying to unwrap these." I told Niall.

"Oh, well-"

Niall got cut off from laughter coming from the kitchen. "Liam get off me!" screamed Peyton.

"No! This is what you get for tickling me!" Liam yelled.

More screaming and laughing came from the room. "Ni-Niall! Hel-Help me-me!" Peyton screamed with laughter.

Niall sighed and kissed my cheek. "I'll be back." and he ran off in Peyton's direction. Why Niall you may ask? Well, Peyton and him are actually cousins. Yup. Mind blown. BOOM.

Louis came back into view and took a sip of tea. "Do you need help with that?" he asked.

"Nah, I got it." I said and walked up the stairs to tie the banner to the posts when the door swung open.

There stood a dark tan guy with beers in his hands and a ton of people behind him.  "What up couz!"

(Back to Ashton's P.O.V.)


"Why are we here again?" I asked for the hundredth time already.

Harry sighed. "To find an outfit for tonight."

We walked into a really expensive looking store at the mall that Harry dragged me to. There were dresses everywhere. But one that popped out was a little black dress. (see what I did there ;) no? okay....) "Harry why do I have to dress fancy?" I asked.

"Because, you are almost an adult and plus, you want to have a good first impression on the college students also." he said while looking at the dress I was looking at earlier.

"What is that suppose to mean?"

"Well, when Louis cousin found out that we were dating, he said he wanted to meet you. But only at the party. Because his kind of parties, will make you the most popular kid, ever. Legit." he smirked.

I rolled my eyes. "I don't care if I'm popular or not Harry," I told him. "All I care is about being with you."

He smiled. "And that's why I love you."

"And I love you." I said back. I thought about kissing him, but we were in the mall and people were staring at us now. "So how about that dress?" I asked pointing to the black one.

Harry smiled. "Perfect."

Love you all! :*
