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...


45. Good friends.

Mia's P.O.V 

I am pathetic. 

I am sitting in bed thinking about how many cats I should buy and what's a better name, buttons or prince fuzzybutt when I hear the familiar text tone and lunge across the room to reach my phone. 

Yep, I'm pathetic. 

I smile as I see the text from Alex:

Just heard what happened, I'm on my way over, bringing Ice cream. Stay put x

I quickly get up out of bed and run to my bathroom. I splash some cold water on my face and then go get changed. I put on some foundation and a little mascara so that I look presentable and then I sit down playing iPhone games while I wait for Alex. 

I hear the knock at my door a few minutes later and I open it to see Alex, carrying a bag of pretty much every type of crisps, chocolate and lollies that you can think of, as well as Ice Cream and the first season of Pretty Little Liars. 

She comes in and puts all the stuff on the coffee table as I lock the door behind her. 

"You're the best Alex." I tell her, engulfing her in a hug. 

"It's no problem." She says, hugging me back. 

We pull away and sit down on the sofa. 

"So do you want to talk about it?" She asks lightly. 

"Not really." I admit, trying to push the whole issue out of my head.

"OK well then we'll sit, watch Pretty Little Liars and eat junk until we feel like throwing up." She states, making me laugh. 

"Thanks Alex. I'm really glad I met you." I tell her. 

Because its true. 

Alex is the only real friend I've made since moving to London, besides the boys that is. 

And I'm extremely grateful.

Niall's P.O.V

I'm sort of grateful that Alex left. 
Don't get me wrong, shes great but I really need to talk to Harry and I know that her and Mia have become close, and I know I might just be paranoid but I don't want her telling Mia what I've been saying. 
"What happened?" Harry asks, genuinely concerned.

"I think I just broke up with Mia." I tell him, not entirely sure if that's what happened. 

"What?" Harry said, looking shocked. 

"And I also told her I loved her." I tell him. 

"WHAT?" He says again.

"Yeah." I say, nodding my head. 

"I am so confused. How do those to events even go together? Mia, I think we should break up. I love you. Like, what?" He says, looking at me like I was crazy.

"Ok I know it sounds weird, but let me explain." I tell him. 


I tell Harry everything that Mia had told me, making him swear not to tell anyone I told him, not even Alex or the other guys. I then told him about what I said to her, about needing time and how she needed to make her decision. 

"Don't you think that was a bit mean Niall?" He asks once I had finished. "I mean she just told you her biggest secrets, even admitted that she had kissed Liam and then you just break up with her and storm out." He says. 

"You don't get it. It's more complicated than that, I just want her to make up her mind. I'm so sick of this. She's with me yet she keeps kissing Liam, if she wants to be with him then fine, dump me and be with him but at least give me a chance first. I told her that I loved her, I've never told any girl outside my family that I've loved them. I've said it 3 times, It's her turn!" I rant to him. 

"Niall, I do get that, I really do. But at least she admitted that she kissed Liam, I mean, what other girl would do that?" 

"I don't know." I admit to him, "What do I do Harry?" I ask, helpless and out of ideas. 

"Well there's nothing for you to do now. You can't make someone love you, you need to let her make her decision and you have to respect it, whatever it may be, whether its you or Liam, as long as it makes her happy then you have to be ok. If you love someone let them go, and if its meant to be, then they'll come back to you." He says, wisely. 

"When did you get so smart?" I ask him and he grins at me. 

"Thanks man," I say.

"no problem." he says.

"So, Alex, you kinda like her hey?" I say, changing the subject. 

"I think I kinda love her." He tells me and I grin. 

"Can I give you some advice?" I ask and he nods. 

"Don't tell her." I say, "Unless you're confident that she loves you back."
