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...


56. Long time no see

Mia's P.O.V

After we had pulled away from our pretty heated make-out session, we went out for breakfast, deciding that it was safer that way. 

Incredibly, we weren't mobbed, which was a good thing. 

Then after breakfast I asked Niall to drop me off at my apartment and not to come in. 

He was hesitant at first but then agreed, and after he had driven off, I made my way up the stairs to my apartment. The happiness I had felt moments ago had drifted away and been replaced with nausea, as I knew what I would have to do next and I was dreading it. 

I approach Liam's door and knock lightly. He answers it with a sympathetic smile. 

"Hey Mia, funny to see you here. Actually I just ran into your friend in the lobby and invited him upstairs to hang out, he seems like a pretty cool guy." Liam tells me. 

"Friend? What friend?" I ask and that's when I see him. 

"Hey babe, long time no see." Jake says, walking over to me and dragging me into a hug. 

"Not long enough." I say, pushing him away with force.

"Mia, what's your problem? Jake seems like a nice guy, he said you were friends and you go way back." Liam says and Jake beams at him. 

"Oh we go way back alright." I tell him, "But you don't know the son of a bitch like I do." I say, gritting my teeth. 

"Mia, calm down, Jake, what's she talking about?" Liam asks him, making me angry. 

"Oh that's what she called me in high school, like a nickname, son of a bitch, fat whore. That sort of thing." Jake says, charmingly but Liam looks like he finds this whole situation very strange. 

"What has he told you?" I ask Liam, crossing my arms across my chest. 

"He said you guys were together and when you broke up with him to move to London he was gutted so he followed you out here. And honestly, after talking to him for a while I think you should give him another chance." Liam says, that sympathetic look in his eye. 

"Thanks man." Jake says, smiling at him. 

"WHAT?!" I ask angrily. 

"Yeah, I mean, I've been thinking, and you and I weren't meant to be together and I get that now, and you've been acting so weird around me and going back and forth between me and Niall because you were trying to fill a void in your heart. Because you're still not over Jake, and that's ok." Liam tells me, looking at me the way you look at a blind, 3 legged puppy at the pound. 

"Liam, I'm not sure what Jake has told you, but it's all bullshit." I tell him.

"Mia, stop fighting it, you know Liam's right." Jake says, snaking his arm around my waist again. 

I turn to him and smile cheekily.

"You know what? Maybe he is." I say, wrapping my arms around Jake's neck and placing a light kiss on his lips. 

He starts to kiss back and it felt disgusting and wrong, but I kept up the act, then when his hand had reached the bottom of my shirt, about to pull it up, I clip his ear lobe, and dig my nails into it. 

He detaches himself from me and cries out in pain and surprise. I drag him by his ear and take him out into the hallway, where I run into a shocked looking Zayn. I suppose that's understandable, I mean its not every day you see a girl like me dragging a tall muscular guy out of an apartment by his ear lobe. 

Zayn was standing outside my apartment door, leaning against the door frame, looking at me in surprise. 

"Mia?" He starts, "I came by to see how you were and well-" Then his eyes shift from me to Jake. 

"Um Mia, who is that?" Zayn asks, concerned. 

"Zayn, Jake, Jake, Zayn. Now that we're all acquainted, I'm going to go push him in front of a moving car." I threaten. 

Zayn looks to Liam, who is standing in the doorway, also in shock, and the two of them follow me, my nails still firmly digging into Jake's earlobe, as I start to make my way down the stairs. 

Once I reach the ground floor and am in the lobby of the apartment building, Jake twists out of my grip, pinning me against the wall. 

I cry out in pain as he pushes his arm against my neck, holding me there so that I am unable to move and it all comes rushing back to me. 

The feeling of his hot breath against my neck as he talks, the way he gripped my wrist and then Ella's, the sound of Ella's voice screaming my name. 

And that's when I blacked out.
