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?


27. The Trip

*Two Weeks Later*

It's been two weeks since Harry's gotten out of the hospital. Well, almost. Today is Thrusday. The day of the field trip.

Harry hasn't talked to me at all since I dropped him off at his house a couple weeks ago. Niall hasn't even been talking to me either. Him and Tabi are always up each others butts 24/7. It honestly, gets really annoying. Especially at lunch. Don't even get me started on that. Liam, Louis and their girlfriends are really the only ones who ever talk to me. It's kind of nice though because they don't eat each others faces or talk all baby talk to them. They just act like regular friends. Zayn on the other hand, has seemed to be getting more and more distant from me. I don't know what he's up to. But I don't like it.

The class bell rings, signaling for everyone to go to first period. We are going to an art museum for the trip. You know what that means?! Completely boring stuff for hours! Yay! Kill me now... But I actually like art. It's very peaceful and everything. My dad used to make art.... but since then I just haven't had the feeling for ever loving art again...

"Ashton!" yells a familiar voice.

I turn around and see Louis running toward me. He is right by my side now and looking down at me breathing kinda hard. "Yes?" I say.

Louis gasped for air. "Do you, do you want to sit by me, Liam, Sian, and Peyton on the bus?"

"Er, sure. Not like those were my plans any way!" I say laughing.

Louis joined me. "Ha! Exactly! Well, see you then."

He is just about to turn around when I grab his arm, "What about Niall and Tabi?"

He looked at me. "Oh, they probably will be too busy. If ya know what I mean." he said giving me a wink.

I hit his arm. "Louis!"

Louis laughed and grabbed his arm. "You know its true!" he said, slowly walking away.

I laughed myself. "Yeah, I know." he smiled at me and ran off.

I turned around and walked into the class room and found everybody up and talking. I found Tabi with Niall sitting on his desk and her in between his legs standing up. They were talking to each other and Niall was playing with her hair. They need to get a room. For real.

I laughed at my thoughts and was walking over towards my seat when I turned to see Zayn sitting on his desk when he looked at me. He stopped me.

"Ashton! What's up, baby?" he said getting up and walking over towards me then embracing me with a warm hug.

I looked back at him. "Nothing. Just waiting to get on the bus and away from this hell hole."

Zayn laughed. "I know what you mean by that." he walked in closer towards me, grabbed my waist, and was about to kiss me while sliding his hands down before he touched my butt when we heard,

"Alright class! Everybody sit down!" said Mrs. Stewart.

We pulled back from each other and looked at me. "I'll finish later." Zayn said winking at me.

I blushed and took my seat to see Harry with nothing around his chest and a slang for his shoulder and a brace for his wrist. His curls were covering up his scratch from the accident. He looked tired, but maybe it's just me.

"AH! Louis! Put me down!" screamed Sian. Louis had picked her up bridal style and was carrying her to the bus.

"Never! Not until I get a true loves kiss from my beauty." he said while looking at her.

She playfully rolled her eyes and grabbed his cheeks pulling him into a kiss.

They pulled apart from each other and Louis put her down. "Maybe I should do that more often." he said smirking.

All of us laughed and got onto the bus. Liam and Peyton sat together, Louis and Sian sat together, and me? I sat all by myself. They were all talking when I looked up and Zayn was staring at me.

He mouthed 'what are you doing?'

I looked back at Louis, Liam, Sian and Peyton, then back at him. 'I'm sitting with them.' I mouthed back.

Zayn made a what-the face. 'Why?'

I rolled my eyes. 'I'll sit with you on the way back.'

Zayn sighed then smirked. 'I'm not finished with you yet.' he mouthed with a wink.

I smirked back then turned to look at Louis and them, but saw that they were already staring at me. "What?" I asked.

"What were you doing?" said Liam chuckling.

"Mouth talking to Zayn." I replied.

They all got quite and the bus started moving.

After a little bit of silence, Louis decided to say something. "Do you actually like Zayn?"

My eyes got big and it kind of shocked me that he would ask me that. Kind of... I looked at him. "Yes.. Why?"

They all looked at one another. Peyton looked at me. "Well... You see.. we uh.. we, oh someone tell her! I don't like being the bar barrier of bad news!"

Liam put his arm around her and looked at me. "What she is trying to say is that, we just don't trust him. That's all." I looked at them. "We don't think that he's right for you, I mean, he's a player, all he wants to do is get into girls pants, he-"

All the words were making my anger boil inside of me. Yet I was disappointed that they weren't giving him a chance. But then it hit me. "Did Harry put you up to this?" I asked.

Liam and Louis looked at each other. It felt like a thousand knifes just went into my heart. "He did didn't he?" I asked.

Louis looked at me. "No he didn't love, we promise. We just want what's best for you." he said wiping a tear off my cheek.

Wait. I was crying? I put my hands on my cheeks and felt wetness everywhere. The tears were just coming down like a waterfall. Ashton pull yourself together.

Sian and Peyton came and sat in my seat as they pulled me into one big hug.

"Babe don't cry." said Sian.

"Ashton, I'm sorry." apologized Peyton.

We pulled out of the hug and I looked at everyone. "There's no need to apologize. If I get hurt. I get hurt. That's my problem. Not yours." I said with a smile. "I love you guys." I pulled them all into a group hug.

Louis squirmed around. "Your-killing-me!" We all let go and Louis caught his breath back. "Few! I thought I was about to suffocate!"

Once we got to the art museum, Liam had Peyton's hand and Louis had Sian's. I am such a loner. I couldn't see Harry, Zayn, Niall, or Tabi anywhere. Great.

We started walking around inside with our personal guidance. It wasn't half bad. There was beautiful painting's everywhere! Flowers, landscapes, people. It really made me change my mind about things. I could actually open my mind back up. But memories start flooding through my mind again and then I block everything out. I can't stand this.

"Hey." said a calm voice.

I jumped. Startled from the presence. I turned around and was shocked. Harry was standing right in front of me smiling. He then pointed. "Your falling behind. Might wanna catch up." he said. I smiled back. He talks really slow... but it's kinda.. attract- Be quite!

I nodded. "Yes, I should."

I started walking and Harry was by my side. We were pretty far behind. I didn't realize how long I was standing at the picture. Harry looked at me. "Everything all right?"


Harry's P.O.V.


I walked by her side the whole time when we tried catching up with the class. Why am I being so nice to her after she completely friend zoned me? Because I lov- No, I mean, that's because I'm such a great friend. I can't love someone who doesn't love you back right? I don't know.

I turned to my left and looked down at Ashton's face. Her cheeks were flushed with pink and there was a tear rolling down it. "Everything all right?" I asked.

She looked at me with tear stained eyes. "What?" she sniffled. "Yeah, I'm fine." she said as she looked back in front of her.

I laid my hand on her shoulder. "Do you wanna talk about it?" I know there's something on her mind, I just don't know what..

"Maybe later." she said, wiping her nose with her sleeve.

I pulled her in close to me and hugged her. "I'm here when you need me. I'll always be here."


Ashton's P.O.V.


It felt good to actually being able to hug him again. It was so nice, so warm. So right...

I looked back up at him. "We should go."

He nodded and we got back to trying to find the line.

A little while later Niall had slipped in between us. "Hey guys! What are you doing? Harry can I talk to you?" He said while pulling Harry away from my side. We were now with the group and everybody looked bored.

Tabi looked at me smiling. I looked back at her. "What?" I asked laughing.

She looked at me. Then she looked around and pulled me off to the side. "Me and Niall...."

I waited for her to continue. "Yes?" I asked.

She squealed. "We went to third base!"

"What?!" I screamed.

She covered my mouth and pulled me away from the group. We were by the janitors closet now. "He said he would get a homerun sometime. Ya know.. All the way with me." she confessed.

My mouth dropped. "What?! No way!"

She nodded and Niall came back. "Hey come on!" he said wrapping his arm around her.

They started walking away without me. I was about to walk with them when a pair of hands went around my waist, and I was pulled into a dark space. The door slammed shut and I was shoved up against the wall. A soft pair of warm lips were on mine and their tongue was trying to gain access into my mouth. I pulled away and was about to hit them when he said, "What's the matter baby?"

I searched for the light and turned it on. Zayn was standing in the middle of the closet.

"What the heck?" I asked.

He smirked and said, "I told you I wasn't finished yet." Zayn stepped closer towards me and started to kiss me again.

"Zayn," I said through our kisses, "Not here, not now." He wouldn't stop. "Zayn stop." He ignored me once again. I pushed him off of me.

Zayn looked at me. "What the fuck was that for?"

I looked at him dumbfounded. "I told you to stop?" I said more of a question.

"I said I wasn't finished." he said in a serious tone.

Tears started to sting my eyes. "Well I guess you won't finish here." I said, storming out of the closet.

I ran through the exhibit and found the restrooms. Zayn had lost me through the twist and turns I took. I was about to walk into the girls bathroom, when Harry walked out of the boys restroom. He looked at me with sad eyes. "What's wrong?" he said, placing his hand on my shoulder.

Not knowing what to say, I shook my head and covered my mouth with my hand while shutting my eyes. Harry pulled me into a hug and put his chin on my head and started to stroke my hair when he said, "Sh, sh. It's okay babe.. It's okay."

Honestly, when someone taller than you hugs you, like Harry, and you put your head on their chest... It feels really, protective and warm. Like, damn, if this is not the greatest feeling in the world. I feel safe around him.


Harry's P.O.V.


I laid my chin on her head. Being the taller person and resting your chin on their head is so comforting because you feel like their protector. It's like they need you and you feel wanted for a moment. I like that feeling when I'm with Ashton.

I pulled her away and looked at her in the eyes. I wiped a tear away from her gorgeous face. "You want to go talk?" I held my arm out for her to grab it. She did and wrapped her arm around my arm. We linked arms and she laid her head on my shoulder. "Let's go for a walk."
