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...


18. meeting the lads....again

*a few hours later*

Mia's P.O.V

'Babe, you ready to go?' Niall asks,

'Yeah, i'll just get changed.' I tell him,

'Babe, you look fine,'

'That's sweet but i'm changing,' I say.

He laughs, shaking his head and then runs his hands through his hair.

I emerge from my room, about 5 minutes later, with my hair tied back, wearing my dark skinny jeans, the same green flowy top and my old converses. 

'Ready?' I ask

'Yeah,' He replies and i grab my phone and keys and we walk out my door and knock on Liam's door, he answers.

Liam's P.O.V 

Mia and Niall arrive, and I answered the door.

'Hey' I say.

What happened to your eye?' She asks. 

Crap. I had totally forgotten about my black eye. 

'I ran into a pole,' I say. God, i'm a terrible liar. 

She raises her eyebrows.

'Guess the pole fought back,' She says.

Thank god she let it go, she went into the living room to greet Louis and Zayn and Niall and I stood at the door,

'Thanks,' he said. 

"That's ok, sorry i'm a terrible liar.' I reply.

"Well she seems to have bought it or if she didn't she's letting it go."

We walk into the living room, where Mia and Zayn are laughing at something Louis said.

Niall goes and sits next to Mia and I sit near Zayn.

'Where's Harry?" Zayn asks.

"He said he's on his way and he's bringing some chick" Louis replies.

'But apparently she isn't just some chick' Niall says, putting air quotes around 'some chick'. 

'ohhhhh...' Louis coo's. 

just then we hear a knock at the door...

Mia's P.O.V

Liam opens the door and Harry and a girl come in, the girl has brown hair, dip-dyed red at the ends and deep blue eyes. She was just standing there, as Harry and Liam had a conversation, so I stood up and went over to her, 

'Hey, I'm Mia," I say, 

'Hi, i'm Alex," She says, smiling.

"maybe you can help me with a bit of a gender balance," I say

She laughs.

'Seeing as Harry and Liam are wrapped up in their conversation I'll introduce you to the others,' I say,

"This is Louis," I say pointing at him, Louis smiled and waved.

"That's Zayn," 

"Hello love," He says.

"And this is Niall," I say sitting down next to them, 

"Hi," He says, 

"Nice to meet you," She says to them, smiling.

Alex and I then spent the next hour, kicking the guys asses at video games. 

'Hell yeah!" We scream, high five-ing over our victory.

'Not fair!" The guys moan. 

"you beat us at every game!" Louis exclaims 'Every game."

"Pure talent." Alex says and we both laugh.

'I'm gonna get a drink," I say "Anyone want anything?"

"Beer please," Zayn, Niall, Harry and Louis say.

"Just a coke, please" Liam says,

"Same." Alex says, getting up. "I'll help" she says, and follows me into the kitchen.

Harry's P.O.V.

After the girls had disappeared into the kitchen, Louis turns to me, "Wow, you did good mate," 

I chuckle.

"Seriously, she's like, wow." He says.

"She seems nice," Liam says.

"Cute," Zayn says.

"Amazing." Niall says.

"What was that Niall?" Mia asks, coming into the room, carrying a few beers. Alex follows her, carrying two cans of coke, she hands one of them to Liam and sits down next to me.

Mia hands Louis, Zayn, Niall and I our beers, sits down next to Niall and opens one for herself.

"Nothing, it's not important." Niall answers.

"Ok..." She says, raising her eyebrows.

"Hey guys, there's a new club opening on Thursday, I was thinking we could go check it out." Louis says, grinning.

"Yeah, sure." Zayn says. 

"I'm in." Mia agrees.

"Yeah." Niall nods.

"cool." I say,

"I'll pass." Alex says. 

I try to hide my disappointment. 

Alex is great, she's smart, funny, great personality and she's gorgeous. Plus sh's a really fun person to be around.

"Ohhh" Mia whines, "How come?" She asks.

"Well, I doubt they'd let me in." Alex says, "And if they ask for identification, i'm screwed."

"Who says they'll ask for identification?" Mia says, grinning mischievously.

"What do you mean?" Niall asks.

"Relax, I got this covered, just come by my apartment and we'll get ready together, believe me, no one will question you." Mia says.

Niall's P.O.V

For the short time I've known her I've discovered a few things about Mia.

1. Mia's great at making friends. She's beautiful, she's friendly, she's charming and she's a genuinely nice person. 

2. She's kind, sweet, funny and will go out of her way to help others.

3. She's a very private person. She's very stubborn, but she's tough. She can handle herself and is very hard to read. You can never really tell what she's thinking.

We spent the next few hours at Liam's, and Mia and Alex got on really well. I'm glad because I don't think Mia has many friends in London. She hasn't told me much about her past. All I know is that she moved to London when she was 18, she used to service cars and that she had a sister called Ella, who died of Leukemia. 

Just as I was thinking all this Harry said something that caught my attention,

"Mia, nice tat" he said.

"Oh, right," Mia said, suddenly becoming self conscious. "Thanks"

"How many have you got?" Liam asks.

"4" Mia says, blushing an even deeper shade of crimson.

"I don't know why your blushing," Louis says, "They're cool."

"So what have you got?" Harry asks.

"Um, I have a love heart on my hip, 'everything that is or was, started with a dream,' tattooed around my wrist," She says, showing us. "I also have um, my sisters name," She says, lifting her shirt up to reveal the font that read 'Ella' on her hip.

"I thought you said you had 4?" Liam says.

"Well, I also have an infinity sign but that's somewhere-"

"somewhere we shouldn't be looking." Louis finishes for her. 

"Exactly." She grins.

For some reason at the mention of her tatoos, Mia became quite tense. 

About an hour later, we left Liam's and Mia and I went back to her apartment.

She locked the door behind her as she came in and turned to me.

She looked disappointed.

'You little shit." She says, clenching her jaw.
