Half Hearted

Mia is still living in the past. She fell in love with the perfect guy and she knew he was the one. Until she found he'd been cheating on her with Victoria Paxon, the local slut on the corner of my street. Now that Brenden broke her heart and took half of it with him, Mia's not sure if she will ever fall in love again. But one day a new boy moves in across the street. His name is Adam Madison, and he quickly falls for his new neighbor. But he knows that her past had scarred her, he just wasn't sure what happened. Adam will have to find a crack in her wall she's built to see what's inside, but he might not be too satisfied with what he finds. Half of a heart doesn't love as a whole heart does.


11. This Guy

Mia's POV~

   I changed into the boxers and t-shirt he gave me and put my wet hair into a pony tail. I felt so much better after I took a shower and was in dry clothes. Adam was so sweet. I can't believe I just barged into his house and kissed him. I didn't know what I was doing. I guess I was in shock from everything.

   I leaned against the door and sighed. It hurt, my heart. I couldn't go out there just yet, I needed to straighten things out in my head.

   Okay, Brenden was over. Never, ever, ever, ever again. But where was I? What would I do now? And Adam? Who is he to me now? Just a friend, or more? I wouldn't know.

  Finally, I walked out of the bathroom to see Adam asleep on his bed. Was I in there that long? I looked at the time. 11:52. I guess it was kind of late. He was probably just bored out of his mind. I should go home. I gathered my stuff and quietly walked over to Adam. I lightly kissed him on his cheek. Suddenly, his hand grabbed mine and pulled me closer.

   "Don't leave," he whispered quietly.

   "Adam," I groaned. "I need to go home."

   "You can go in the morning when you're better," he whispered, his eyes still closed. He pulled me into his arms and rested his chin on the top of my head. I sighed and layed my head on his chest, qickly falling asleep. Why did he have to be so sweet?

Adam's POV~

   I slowly woke up and opened my eyes. There in my arms was Mia. I smiled. I finally had a chance to win her heart. But I had to be careful, because I knew it was broken.

   I carefully lifted my head to look at the time, careful not to wake up Mia. 9:32. I quietly lifted Mia's arm off of me and carefully got up. Mia just groaned and turned over on her side. I smiled. She was so cute when she slept.

   Walking over to the door, I slowly opened it and walked downstairs. Pancakes and bacon were my specialty. I got out two big pans and all the ingrediants. Before I knew it, Mia was walking down the stairs and I had three pancakes ready.

   "Hey beautiful," I said.

Mia's POV~

   I liked that better than sexy. It made me feel like I was perfect and not someone's toy.

   "Hey," I said, grabbing a piece of bacon and sitting on the counter.

   "Good?" he asked, flipping three panckes onto a plate and holding it out for me.

   "Great!" I said, taking the plate. We ate our breakfast, talking about ourselves and other memories we have.

   "So, your parents aren't home?" I asked, awkwardly looking around. I had totally forgotten his parents might be home.

   "Nah, my mom is visiting my grandma in Chicago."

   "And your dad?" Adam just laughed and looked at the ground. "Oh my god. I'm sorry."

   "It's alright. He . . . he-"

   "You don't have to tell me if you don't want to," I said.

   He considered this then said, "No. I want to." He told me about how his father abused his mother and threatened to kill her a couple of times. He was the one who forced her to tell the athorities and get a divorce. That was why they moved here.

   "I'm sorry," I said when he was done. We had moved to the living room, he was sitting on the couch and I was sitting on the rocking chair.

   "It's alright," he said. "Come here." He opened his arms for me to climb into. Once I was in his grasp and laid my head on his shoulder and sighed. "So, can I ask you a question?"
