The Girl Next Door

Mia has just moved into a new apartment in London and her neighbor happens to be Liam Payne. She thinks she has fallen for his friend Niall, until Liam gets involved and things get complicated.
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...


31. Confession

Alex's P.O.V

Harry and I got to Liam's apartment before the others so it gave me the chance to get to know Liam a bit better.

Harry, Liam and I hung around and talk and then when Harry went to the bathroom I pounced. (metaphorically of course, I'm not interested in literally pouncing on Liam, Harry however....)

When Harry was safely out of the room I moved where he was sitting, next to Liam. 

"So, you have a thing for Mia don't you?" I ask him.

"What?" Liam says, turning a dark shade of red.

"I'll take that as a yes." I say.

"Woah-woah-woah. Hang on a minute. I do NOT have a thing for Mia." He says, putting emphasis on the word not.

 I raised my eyebrows at him. "I don't." He says, making me raise my eyebrows again.

"Stop looking at me like that. I don't." He says, looking down. 

"Liars look down Liam." I tell him, making him look up.

"How did you know?" He asks me.

"I saw the way you looked at her last night." I tell him sadly.

"You didn't tell Harry did you?" He asks, concerned.

"Nope. I haven't told anyone." 

"So Mia doesn't know?" 

"Not that I know of and I haven't told her."

"Ok can you please keep it that way?" 

"Your secrets safe with me." I confirm. 

"Thank you." He says, hugging me. 

"No problem." 

"Hey, what's going on in here?" Harry asks, walking into the room. 

"Um, nothing." I say, quickly, pulling away from the hug.

"What's with the hug, did someone die?" He asks, sarcastically. 

"No, uh, I just told Liam that I'd do him a favor." I tell Harry. 

"Oh, ok, what's the favor?" Harry asks.

"I'm uh, setting him up with a friend." I say, getting a death stare from Liam. 

"Ohhhhh" Harry coos.

"Shut up." Liam tells him. 

"So-rry." Harry says in a sassy way. 

"Harry cut it out." I tell him, "And don't mention it to the others ok? We're trying to keep it private in case it doesn't work out." 

"Ok, ok. I won't mention it. Promise." Harry agrees. 

Conventionally the doorbell rings and Harry goes to answer it. 

Liam turns to me, "I'm sorry! It was the first thing that popped into my head!" I say, apologetically. 

"It's fine." He says, "You're not actually going to set me up are you?"

"No, not unless you want me to?" I ask, cheekily.

"No! No, um, i'm good. Just please don't tell Mia."

"Tell me what?"
