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...


34. Meanwhile, in the other room....

Mia's P.O.V

"He needs Ice." I hear Harry mutter under his breath, 'The bastard needs ice." 

Niall and the others are engaged in conversation so I was the only one to hear Harry's mumbling. 

"So how are things between you and Alex?" I ask, getting up and sitting down next to him.  

"Alright." He replies sadly.

"Just alright?" I ask with raised eyebrows.

"Well, I haven't know her for very long, I mean I only met her a few weeks ago and yeah, she's great but I'm not sure whether or not things are going to work out." Harry says nervously. 

"That's bullshit." I tell him, staring into his eyes. 

"Excuse me?" He asks, looking surprised. 

"I said that's bullshit." I say again, "I know you like her and I know that things are going to work out. You're just denying it because you're scared that things aren't going to work out and that she'll leave you for someone, particularly Liam. You want to break things off before you get too attached." I explain. 

"Wha- How did you know that?" He asks, confused.

"Harry, I'm a child psychologist." I state obviously.

"But I didn't even know that that was how I felt but you did and now it makes sense." He says, looking over to the others to see if they were eavesdropping and then turning back to me when he was satisfied that they weren't and were still engrossed in their conversation.

"It's my job. I deal with confused kids and moody teenagers all the time. They're very similar to you." 

"Thanks." He says, sarcastically, making me giggle. 

"So Doc, what do I do?" He asks me.

"Well that depends. Do you want my professional opinion or my personal opinion?" I ask him.

"What's the difference?" He asks.

"Well in my professional opinion I would say that I can't dictate your choices for you and it's up to you to what you make of the situation and its all about your outlook on the situation..blah blah blah.. and other random psycho-analysis crap but in my personal opinion I think you should just grow a pair." I tell him. 

"Excuse me?" He says, looking shocked.

"Yeah. Grow a pair of balls and stop hiding your feelings from yourself. You like her and you know it, so stop lying to yourself because you think it will save you heartbreak later because it won't and will probably just make things worse. You need to admit to yourself that you're an idiot that's falling for this girl and that that's ok. Alex is great and she's not going to leave you for anyone, especially not your best friend. If you want to have a future with her, which I know you do, you have to trust her. Nothing is going on with her and Liam, they're just friends and you're being a jealous prick by assuming that they're something more than that. " I lecture him. 

"Look I-" He starts and then stops. He rests his head in his hands and runs his finger through his hair. 

'I'm sorry." I apologise to him, softening a bit "I can be a bit of a bitch sometimes and that was wrong of me to say that and you're not-" 

He cuts me off.

"No, you were right." He says.

"What?" I ask, now I'm the one that's confused. 

"You were right. It's like you just unlocked the door to my head and a whole lot of weird fell out. You're right and Alex is great and I am just being jealous and I am lying to myself." He admits. 

"And you're not a bitch sometimes." He adds, "You're not a bitch ever."

"That's sweet. But I am sorry." I say again.

"Don't be, I had to hear it." He says, smiling at me and then pulling me into a warm hug. 

I pull away when I hear footsteps and assume its Liam and Alex coming back from the kitchen. I get up and go back to where I was sitting before and watch as Alex sits down next to Harry who immediately embraces her in his arms.

"You guys are so cute." I tell them, and meaning it. 

They turn to look at each other and then Harry impulsively kisses her, taking her by surprise. 

They were engaged in the kiss for a while that even Niall, Louis and Zayn had finished their conversation and were staring at them. And well, because I'm me I had to ruin their moment by wolf whistling, making them pull out of the kiss and stare at me. 

"Not bad." I mouth to Alex, flashing her a wink. 

"So what were you guys talking about?" Alex asks.

"Ahhh..." Harry trails off, struggling for an answer. 

"We were just about to change the subject." I say quickly, saving Harry. "Because we were getting to the point where if I had to hear one more example about chicken sex I was going to kill myself." I say, making Alex laugh.

'Thank you.' I see Harry mouth to me.

"No problem." I mouth back, grinning.
