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...


27. Mornings after and awkward texting

Mia's P.O.V

*The next morning* 

I wake up confused and light-headed. Rolling onto my side, I see Niall asleep next to me and the memories from last night come flashing back. 

After the laughing spaz and teasing Zayn about Perrie (which mainly consisted of Louis and Harry singing "Here comes the bride" with some uh-lets just say interesting- lyric changes) We spent the rest of the night dancing, drinking and talking, and luckily not running into you-know-who (thank god). Then we all got into separate cabs (Me, Niall and Liam in one, Harry and Alex in one and Zayn and Louis in one) and went home. Niall decided to stay at my apartment and we stayed up for the majority of the night, talking, drinking and joking around (and some pretty heavy make-out sessions). And then I remember the both of us passing out (I guess we had more beer than we'd thought)

I get out of bed slowly, careful not to wake Niall and head to the kitchen, taking two nurofens with some water, hoping to clear the headache and foggyness that was the result of one to many beers. 

I check my phone and see the time reading 11:36am and am surprised to see that I have 3 new messages, 2 from Alex and 1 from Zayn. 

Curious, I unlock my phone and read them:

From: Alex 

Time: 9:35am 

Hey, so I just wanted 2 thank u again for the make-over and for just being a good friend. I have soooo much to tell you so I guess I'll seeya tonight at Liam's again?

From: Alex

Time: 9:37am 

Hey, my phone keeps stuffing up, not sure if u got my last message? Anyways thanks again for last night I have so much to tell u! Cya tonight yeah?

From: Zayn

Time: 11:34am

Hey, not sure if u and Niall r up yet but I'm going to stop by Liam's and I was wondering if I could talk to you? Text me back, Zayn x

Great. I reply to Alex's messages with a simple: Sure, no problem, seeya tonight :)

And then hesitate before replying to Zayn's. Perfect. Now he needs an explanation. 

"Yeah that's fine,Text me when you get here. Niall's still asleep." I text back. 

What am I supposed to tell him?

I jump as my phone vibrates in my hand. 

From: Zayn

Time: Now

Actually I'm here now is that ok? Wanna go for coffee or something?

"Sure." I type back "Give me 5 minutes."

I quickly press send and then go get dressed. When I'm done I leave Niall a note on the bench telling him that I've gone out for coffee and will be back later. 

I quickly grab my purse, phone and keys and run out the door, locking it behind me. 

And I run straight into Zayn, knocking us both to the ground.


"Sorry." I tell him, straightening up.

"No problem." He says, standing up and running his hands through his hair, "You ready?" He asks. 

"Yeah." I reply and we walk down the stairs together making polite chit chat.

But I know it won't be long before we stop the small talk and start the explanation. 

We decide to walk to a little coffee shop down the street. We get there and sit in silence. 

I inhale deeply.

Here goes nothing.
