53. I have to ask..

Liam's P.O.V

What. The. Fuck. 

She kisses me in the middle of the street, clearly into it, not caring who walks past and sees and then she pulls away, says "I can't do this again" and runs off. AGAIN. I'm so confused. 

Still. 

Niall's P.O.V 

Relief hit me like a ton of bricks when Mia told me she loved me. I felt as thought the half of my heart had been filled in and the pain was instantly gone. 

After standing in my doorway making out and hugging for about 5 minutes, I invite her in and we sit, hands intertwined as she tells me how miserable she's been for the past few days and I have to admit, I was feeling pretty happy about that. Not that she was miserable, but that she wasn't having a great time sleeping around or anything. I was relieved that she hadn't forgotten me that quickly. 

"Mia, I was wondering.." I trail off. 

"Yeah?" She asks. 

"Well um, this is a weird question but considering the circumstances I have to ask, do you love Liam?" I ask her, nervous to hear her answer. 

Because the truth is, I was still confused. 

"Yes." She says. 

What.

"Uh, um, ok, well." I stammer, I was just about to ask her if she loves Liam then why is she here, when she cuts me off.

"I love Liam like a best friend, he's like the older brother I never had and I feel safe around him." She tells me and I breathe a sigh of relief. 

"Plus he's a really good kisser." She says with a wink, knowing that it will annoy me. 

I then ask her the next question that had popped into my head. 

"Do you love me like a best friend? Or like a brother?" I ask her awkwardly. 

"No you idiot." She says, rolling her eyes at me. "I just love you. I love you more than I've ever loved anyone before, I love you so much it hurts. I'm in love with you, dummy." She says and it takes me a minute to register her words. 

I was seriously fighting the urge to jump up and start happy dancing. I lean in towards her so that our foreheads are touching. 

"You have no idea how glad I am to hear that." I tell her before leaning in and pressing my lips to hers. Not forceful with something to prove, like I had a few minutes earlier when she showed up at my door asking to kiss her. But sweet and warm and safe. 

We stayed there for a moment, engaged in the kiss. I didn't want to remove my lips from hers but I did eventually. Because there was one more thought on my mind that I wanted to get out in the open. 

"Mia, I know we only met about a month and a half ago but I feel like its been so much longer than that." I tell her and she nods in agreement. 

"Now, I've been thinking and I know it might be totally out of line and its completely fine if you say no but I was maybe wondering if you wanted to move in with me?" I ask her hopefully. 

The truth is I've been thinking about this since the first time I stayed over at her apartment. Because the next day I struggled to bring myself to leave. 

She looks surprised and raises her eyebrows at me. After about a minutes silence she nods. "Ok." She says, looking up at me. "I would love to." She says, grinning at me. But within seconds her face changes. 

"Are you ok?" I ask her, concerned about the grim expression she is now wearing. 

"I'm fine. And I'm happy to move in with you. But I have some conditions." She says and I nod. She continues, "I need to know that you're not asking me to move in with you so that I no longer live near Liam." 

Honestly, the idea hadn't even occurred to me. 

"No, of course not Mia. Liam's my best friend and I trust you both completely. I mean, I can move into your apartment if you want, its not a problem." I tell her truthfully. 

"Ok, one other thing." She says. 

"Anything."

"I'm not selling my apartment.' She says. 

I'll admit that hurt a little bit. I worried that she needed the apartment as a back up in case we break up. Does she think we might break up?

As though reading my mind she quickly says, "Not as a back up or anything, but I want to use it as an office. I recently lost my job and I'm thinking of starting up my own company. I would still be a child psychologist but now instead of working for a certain clinic I would have my own." She explains. 

"Mia that's great." I tell her, "Seriously. But when did you lose your job?" I ask her. 

"3 days ago." She says. 

"Well that sucks." I tell her and she agrees. 

"So that's it? You'll move in?" I ask again. 

"I would love to." She says, engulfing me in a hug she lunges forward so that she is now lying on top of me on the couch. 

She then presses her lips to mine and removes the little space between us. 

And well....as they say....one thing led to another....

And I think you can imagine what happened next...
