The Girl Next Door

Niall or Liam? Niall or Liam?
Will she end up with one of them or none?
Will she be able to escape her past and have a chance at romance?
Or will she stay 'just The Girl Next Door...

Vicki's P.O.V

'Shit." I pant, as I climb the last flight of stairs carrying a big box of office supplies (with everything from post it notes to a coffee machine). I try to balance the large box under one arm as I knock on the door. When there's no answer I pull out the spare key Mia gave me and attempt to unlock the door, still balancing the huge box. 

"You need a hand?" asks a guy coming out of the apartment next to Mia's (which had been remodeled so that it wasn't an apartment anymore, but now a temporary office).

"No thanks, I got it." I tell the guy. So of course, after I say this I stumble under the weight of the box and fall back, luckily the guy caught me. 

"You still got it?" He asks, biting back a laugh. 

"Guess not." I tell him, trying not to laugh.

He then takes the box from me and carries it as I unlock the door and he follows me inside. He puts the box down on the desk that I point to, indicating that it's mine.

"I'm Liam by the way." He tells me, smiling. 

'Vicki." I reply, "nice to meet you."

"So you work with Mia?" He asks me. 

"No I just happen to have a large box of office supplies and keys to her old apartment." I say sarcastically and he laughs. 

"Well I'll probably see you around. I live next door." He tells me. 

"Cool. I think Mia mentioned you actually." I tell him and his eyes light up.

"Really? What did she say?"

"That if I run into a David Beckham look alike hanging around the office not to worry because it was just her friend Liam." I tell him, recalling my conversation with Mia a few hours ago. 

He was about to say something but was cut off by Mia's entrance. She was carrying a folder and a pile of business cards. 

"Hey Vicki, I see you've met Liam." She says, dumping the business cards and folder on her desk and then walking over to us. 

"Yeah." I tell her, "He saved me from my own clumsiness." 

"Funny." She says, "That's how we met actually, he prevented me from tripping down the stairs with a huge box twice my size." She explains and I laugh. 

How ironic. 

"Uh Vicki, so maybe do you want to come by my apartment tonight? You could meet some of our friends?" He asks nervously and Mia swoops in to help. 

"Yeah, Niall and I will be there and so will Alex and I'm sure you'll get along great with the others." 

"um ok? Sure." I say, earning huge smiles from them both. 

"Cool. Seeya then." Liam says before leaving.

"I think he's into you." Mia says after he's left. 

"I think you're crazy." I tell her, perfectly aware that she was trying to set us up. 

"Well don't dismiss him too quickly, he's a good kisser." Mia says, winking cheekily. 

"You've kissed him?" I ask her. 

"Yeah, it's a long story. But nothing serious happened between us, just a few kisses. But seriously he's a great guy and I think he likes you." Mia tells me. 

"Ok." I say in return, turning back to my desk, shifting around papers to make it look like I was busy. 

I would be lying if I said I didn't like Liam and that I wasn't attracted to him. And I'm sure he's make a great boyfriend. 

"Yay!" Mia says, running over and hugging me.

"Oh crap, did I say that out loud?" I ask and she nods in reply. 

Eventually she drops the conversation of Liam and shows me the new business cards. They had our office phone and fax number and Mia's name as well as the company name and motto:

ELLA -  Entrusting, Living, Loving, Adapting.
