37. Arguments and confessions

Mia's P.O.V

I wake up and squint at the sun that's streaming through my bedroom window. As I go to get up and close them I notice the protective arms around me and suddenly the events of last night come rushing back to me. I can feel the flush in my cheeks as the embarrassment returns. I let my guard down and I couldn't be more ashamed. 

I rest my head back down on his chest and look up, watching him sleep peacefully. I slowly try to slip out of his strong grip without waking him but I fail when he wakes up with a jolt. 

"Are you ok?" He asks me, quickly and panicked, still half asleep with his hair sticking up in all different directions. 

"Yeah, I'm fine." I tell him, sitting up and turning to face him. 

"Are you sure?" He asks, looking concerned.

"Yeah, thanks." I reply, seeing the stress on his face made me feel guilty. 

"Anytime." He says, pulling me in for a hug and kissing me on the forehead.

I hug him back and the guilt turns into gratefulness. 

"I'm gonna go shower." I say, getting up quickly and take refuge from the awkwardness by hiding in my bathroom.

I lock the door behind me, strip and then get in the shower. Sobbing softly to myself I let the water run over me and wash away all the dread, horror and other multiple negative emotions that come with my daunting past. 

When I'm finally finished I turn off the water and dry myself off. I splash some water on my face and secretly hope that Niall won't be there when I come out. 

I change and inhale deeply before opening the door and walking into my kitchen. 

"Morning!" 

"Jesus!" I say, turning around, Niall's voice startling me. 

"No but I've been told the resemblance is uncanny." He replies cheekily. 

"Haha." I say sarcastically, biting back a smile, "I didn't know you read that."

"I just watched the movie but only heard that line because I was making out with Liam." He tells me. 

"I'm sorry," I say, taken aback, "What?"

"I'm just kidding" He says, laughing, "But the look on your face was priceless."

I shake my head at him but can't help laughing.

"So...last night..." He starts to say, trailing off, suddenly turning serious. 

"Stop." I say, cutting him off before he can start talking again and he raises his eyebrow at me. 

"I'm sorry." I tell him, "I'm so embarrassed I-" 

"No, you stop." He says, cutting me off. "I just want to make sure you're ok."

"I'm fine Niall it was just a dream." I say, trying to make him stop. 

"It didn't sound like it was just a dream." He says.

"Well it was. It's really no big deal. Can you just drop it?!" I snap, yelling at him. 

"Fine. You know, I don't get you Mia. I try to get close to you and you keep pushing me away! I don't see why it's so hard for you to understand that I care about you!" He yells. 

"I'm sorry! But I don't see why its so hard for you to understand that I don't want to talk about it." 

"Damn it Mia! I understand that, really I do but you never want to talk! It's always no big deal and I'm sick off it. I've known you for a little over a month now and it doesn't take a genius to figure out that you've put this emotional wall up and whenever I try to break through it you slam the door in my face!" He yells back in reply. 

"Oh don't you dare accuse me of that! You have no idea what I've been through so don't you ever make it seem like I'm the bad guy just because I have boundaries." I say sternly. 

"Boundaries? That's what you're calling it? That doesn't even begin to explain-" He starts to say but I cut him off. 

"SHUT UP!" I scream at him "YOU HAVE NO IDEA HOW I FEEL SO DON'T GO JUMPING TO FUCKING CONCLUSIONS JUST BECAUSE I'M NOT IN THE MOOD TO TALK!" 

"WELL I'M TRYING TO FIND OUT HOW YOU FEEL! I'M NOT A MIND READER BUT JUST BECAUSE YOU HAVE TRUST ISSUES DOESN'T MEAN YOU CAN PUSH ME AWAY AND TREAT ME LIKE AN IDIOT!" He screams back in reply. 

"JUST BECAUSE I MAY HAVE DIFFICULTY TRUSTING PEOPLE SOMETIMES IT DOES NOT MEAN I HAVE TRUST ISSUES!" I scream defensively.

"THAT'S EXACTLY WHAT IT MEANS!"

"NO IT DOESN'T YOU HAVE NO FUCKING IDEA SO STOP ACTING LIKE YOU HAVE A CLUE WHEN YOU DON'T." 

"THAT'S RIGHT I HAVE NO FUCKING IDEA BECAUSE YOU WON'T LET ME HELP YOU!"

"I DON'T NEED HELP!"

"YOU NEED TO GET IT THROUGH YOUR STUBBORN HEAD THAT ITS NOT GOOD TO KEEP ALL YOUR EMOTIONS TO YOURSELF! YOU NEED TO REALIZE THAT I DON'T CARE ABOUT ANY OF THIS SHIT I JUST CARE ABOUT YOU AND I WANT TO BE ABLE TO GET CLOSE TO THE WOMAN I LOVE!" He yells at me. 

My eyes widen and I freeze at his words. 

"The woman you what?" I ask softly. 

His facial expression turns soft and he looks me in the eyes and replies softly, 

"The woman I love." He says. "I love you Mia." 

I stand there in shock for a few minutes, not knowing what to say. 

"Mia?" He asks, standing closer to me. "Mia please say something."

And it was then that I stated the one word that was going through my head when he told me he loved me. 

And it was probably one of the worst things I could have said at that moment. 

"What."

(A/N I just finished reading City of Bones from the mortal instruments series which is why I included the quote:

"Jesus!"

"No but I've been told the resemblance is uncanny."
