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...


28. Paparazzi and Promises

Zayn's P.O.V 

"So..." I say awkwardly. We had exhausted lame chit chat and small talk and judging by the look on Mia's face she was waiting for me to get to the point. 

"So.." She repeats, "Look I-" She starts but is then cut off by the waitress that comes over to our table.

"What can I get yo-OH MY GOD!" The waitress says, interrupting herself. "You're Zayn Malik!" She exclaims excitedly. 

"Yeah." I say, hoping she wasn't overheard. I wasn't in the mood to be mobbed, all I wanted was to talk to Mia. 

"Well can I get you anything?" The waitress says, batting her eyelashes at me while she stands up straighter and attempts to make her breasts look bigger.  

"Um, no i'm fine thanks." I tell her and then turn to Mia.

"I'm good." Mia says, nodding and earning the waitresses attention. 

"Oh sorry I didn't see you there." The waitress says to her, "You're the girl everyone's talking about right? The one dating Niall?" She asks Mia. 

"Um, yeah. I guess so." Mia replys, awkwardly.

"Well. I'll give you two a minute then." She says, flashing Mia a scowl as she walks away. 

"Skank." I overhear the waitress mutter under her breath as she walks away. I ignore it though, hoping Mia didn't hear.

Mia and I sit in awkward silence for about 5 minutes until Mia finally says something, and it wasn't at all what I was expecting. 

"Mother Shitting F*ck" She says, loud and clear. 

"What? What's wrong?" I ask her, concerned. 

"I think we should go. Now. Quick." She tells me. 

"Why?" I ask, confused.

"Well i'm not in the mood to be blinded by cameras and I don't think you are either." She says, pointing behind me, causing me to turn and see a stampede of fans and cameramen from various entertainment channels running towards us. 

"Good point." I say, quickly getting up.

I take her hand in mine and we run through the cafe, hoping to escape through the back when we are suddenly face to face with the same waitress as before who was blocking the back exit.

"Are you two leaving? So soon?" She says, innocently, batting her eyelashes at me.

"Yeah." Mia says to her, running through the side door of the cafe and dragging me along with her. 

"Come back soon!" The waitress says smiling sweetly. 

"I highly doubt it!" Mia yells behind us.

We run down the side street until we were sure we had lost them. We stop to catch our breath and sit on the steps of an old school building. 

"Sorry." I say to her.

"No need to apologise. It's not your fault." She replies. 

"Thanks, you're too nice about it." I tell her, making her smile.

"Well. I owe you an explanation for last night, don't I?" She asks, looking up at me like she already knows the answer.

"Um, not exactly." I say, causing her to raise her eyebrows at me.

"An explanation would be nice though." I add, causing her to chuckle softly. 

"Ok." She says "But I need you to keep it a secret. Can you do that?" 

"I can keep a secret." I tell her. 

"You can't tell anyone, not even the boys and definitely not Niall. Ok? Can you do that?"

"Hey, I don't tell them everything and half the time they don't even know where I am."

"Zayn this is serious. Promise me you won't tell them." She pleads.

"I promise." I tell her.

"Thank you." She says, leaning over and engulfing me in a hug.

I wrap my arms tightly around her and when she pulls away she gives me a light kiss on the cheek. 

I was just about to ask her when I would be getting that explanation when her head turns sharply to the right. I look in the same direction, confused as to what alarmed her when I saw the flash of camera.
