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?


24. Going Back To School

(A/N-- I know I haven't updated in a while but I will update this one the most now because I want to wrap it up and finish my other movellas. If you would like to read them, go ahead! I would love that!:) Thank you guys so much! xoxo)


Ashton's P.O.V.


Harry's been in the hospital for almost a week now. He has a fractured rib, broken collar bone, and chipped wrist. Luckily, what I saw on his head was not fractured or broken. He just hit his head really hard and split open the skin. Thank God. I really don't want to lose him.

Today is Friday. It happened almost exactly a week ago. Saturday. I just feel so bad for him. Thankfully, he gets out on Sunday.

Our school field trip is on Thursday, and we get Friday off for no school. I really hope that he can go.

Everyday, I replay on what happened Saturday. I cry myself to sleep every night just remembering on what happened.

I always tell myself that it was all because of me. If I would've just went with it when he kissed me. The sparks. Fireworks everywhere. I don't feel that with Zayn.

I sighed. I really need to stop thinking about Harry like that.... I have Zayn.

A tear rolled down my cheek. I wiped it and sniffled.


The school bell screamed.

I got up from my seat and headed out the door. Someone yelled my name but I ignored them. I really didn't feel like talking to anyone.

Just when I got out of the class room and down the hall, there was a hand that pulled my arm back. I got spun around and saw a worried Tabi and Niall.

"Babe, what's wrong?" said Tabi, pulling me closer to her. She hugged me. "You've been like this all week."

I sobbed in her shoulder. "It's all my fault though."

Niall looked at me from behind Tabi. "Is this about Harry?"

Just the name I wanted to hear. I shook my head and closed my eyes tightly while I put my head in Tabi's shoulder. I tried pushing the memory out but I couldn't. He's always been there.

Tabi sighed. "Niall, can you but my books in my bag please? My combination is, well. You know." I looked up and Niall nodded.

Niall looked at me. "Do you want me to put your stuff in your locker too?"

I sniffed and nodded. I got all the stuff I needed and put it back in my shoulder school bag. "Put those in my locker. 143, combo is 05, 17, 01."

Niall nodded and took my books. I thanked him and looked back at Tabi. "We need to get you to the bathroom. Like now."

Tabi dragged me into the bathroom. We were the only ones in there. Thank. Gosh.

I looked like a train wreck. My cheeks were red, my eyes were red and puffy, and my mascara was running. Crap.

Tabi handed me a paper towel. "Thanks." I said.

I wiped all the mascara off my face and stopped crying.

"Here," Tabi said handing me some mascara. "It's waterproof by the way."

I looked at her and laughed. "Thanks, just what I wanted." I said sarcastically.

She laughed to. "Okay. Well, you can give that back to me anytime. Are you gonna be okay here? Do you need a ride?"

I opened the mascara and was about to apply it when I answered her. "Yes, I will be fine. And no, Zayn's taking me home."

Tabi made a fake cough. "How can you like him." she shivered.

I gave her an are-you-kidding-me-right-now look. "Okay, he is kind of cute, but he's a jerk." Tabi said.

I finished applying on the mascara and handed it back to her. "Whelp, he hasn't been a jerk since we've started dating." I replied.

Tabi let out a sigh. "Well now that your done, lets go back and find Niall and... well.. Zayn."

I rolled my eyes playfully and walked out with her.

We started walking down the hall together. I guess we were the only students there because nobody was in the hall way.

Tabi and I turned a corner and saw Niall and.... Zayn? They were both talking to each other, but in front of my locker with my locker open?!

As we approached them Zayn whispered something to him and they turned towards us.

"What are you doing?" I asked.

Niall looked at the open locker. "Oh." he said closing my locker quick. "Nothing." Niall put a smile on his face and so did Zayn.

"Okay then. Well let's go." I said.

We all walked towards the front entrance and I said goodbye to Tabi and Niall. It was almost like Zayn was waiting forever to ask me this. He immediately wrapped his arm around my waist and pulled me closer to him. "What's wrong." he demanded.

I was kind of startled by the way he said that. Zayn looked at me. "I'm sorry if that came out kind of harsh." he said as we got to his car. He wrapped his arms around my waist while I was up against the car door. "I just want to know what's wrong with my baby."

I looked at him. "It's nothing." I said backing away from him and getting into the car.

He got in on the other side. He sat down and looked at me and started the car. I continued to look out the window. "Okay, fine, whatever!" he exclaimed making me jump.

We pulled out of the school and were stopped at a stop light a couple blocks down.

"Is this about Harry." Zayn said.

"N-no." I lied.

"Ashton don't lie to me!" he said hitting the top of the steering wheel.

I looked at him and his face was red, but he was focused on the road. His jaw was clenched shut and his grip was extremely strong on the wheel. His knuckles were white and he kept grinding the wheel with his hands. He then bit the bottom of his lip and hit the gas pedal.

The rest of the drive was quite. We pulled up to my house and I was about to get out when he stopped me.

I looked at him. His eyes were red and puffy. He opened his mouth to say something, but it never came out. I looked at him opened my door.

"No wait!" Zayn said.

I closed the door and looked back at him.

"I'm sorry. It's just.. I don't want to lose you. I-I" Zayn grabbed my hand and looked at me right in my eyes. "I love you."

I was shocked. He just. Did he just say that? I was dumbfounded. "I, I, Zayn." I stuttered.

He looked down. "I.. I'm sorry. I'll leave." he looked back up away from me and a tear slid down his cheek.

"Wha- No! Zayn don't. Don't! Don't." I said. "Don't."

He just sat there and stared at me. "Because, I love you too." I finally said.

He smiled. Zayn licked his bottom lip and then bit it. We both leaned in and kissed each other.

We pulled apart. "I'll see you later?"

I nodded. "Yes." I said.

I got out and looked at him as he drove down the road. I saw him smirk as he left.

There was a ring in my pocket. I got out my phone and it was from Niall.

Niall: Everything okay?

I replied,

Me: Yeah... Why?

I sighed and was about to walk inside when my phone went off.

Niall: Just wondering.. I didn't know if you needed help with Zayn.

What? I turned around and looked at Niall's house across the street. I glanced up at the windows and found him waving in one of the top windows. I laughed and so did he.

Me: You're such a stalker lol dork!

Niall replied back.

Niall: Just watching out for a friend :)

I looked back at the window and smiled. Niall smiled back and I waved 'bye' as he did the same.

I turned around and walked inside. My car keys were laying on the counter next to a note.

I picked it up and read:

Hi Sweetie!

I have to go out and pick up groceries!

Be back around 5.


Hm. I set it down and looked at my keys for the longest time.

No. Don't. A tear slid down my cheek.

I couldn't help my self. I grabbed my keys and ran out the door.
