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...


23. The voice

Mia's P.O.V 

As soon as I heard his voice I knew.

He was back. 

But I didn't care. 

I grasp Alex and Liam's arms tightly, ushering them through the door. 

"Keep walking." I say through gritted teeth. 

They don't protest and we get through the door without being followed.

We spot Niall, Harry and Louis immediately. 

We walk up to them and their jaws drop. 

"Alex?" Harry asks, confused.

She laughs. "Yeah." She says. 

"You look- you - you look - wow." He stutters, then he turns to me "Good job." He says.

"Told ya." I say smirking. 

For the next half an hour Alex, Harry, Niall and I tear up the dance floor.

Dancing romantically in the slow songs and being idiots in the fast ones. 

People were watching us krumping and twerking, but we didn't care.

I felt free and relaxed. Something I hadn't felt in a while. 

 Niall and I stop dancing long enough to go get some beers and sit down at a table with Liam and Louis. 

"where's Zayn?" I ask curiously.

"Chatting up some girl at the bar." Louis tells me.

We were sitting at the table, talking and laughing for about half an hour when I excused my self to go to the bathroom. 

"Be back in a sec." I tell the lads, and hurry off, pretending not to notice them staring at my ass as I walked away.

I was approaching the bathroom door when I feel a tug on my arm.

"Let go of-" I say, turning around. "Me." I finish, seeing the last person I wanted to see. 

"Hey Mia." He says, his deep voice as cool and clear as I remember.

"Hey, Jake." I say, releasing my arm from his tight grip. 

"You didn't hear me before?" He asks

"No." I say, folding my arms across my chest. 

"Really?" He says. "Just like you didn't receive my emails or voice mails?" 

"I lost my phone and got a new number." I tell him. 

"And the emails?" He asks.

"Look, I don't need to explain myself to you." I say.

"No, but I think it's best that you cooperate." He says to me.

"You can't treat me like that anymore." I say to him. 

"Oh, I think I can." He says, raising his arm, ready to hit me.

"No, you can't" I say, "You're not my boyfriend anymore and even if you were, how I handle my personal life is none of your god damn business." I say.

He raises his hand and slaps me across the face.

"You d*ck!" I say, through gritted teeth.

He slaps me again. 

This time I retaliate, grabbing his hand and twisting it behind his back, making him cry out in pain. 

"Leave. Me. Alone." I tell him. 

"Useless." He says to me, struggling out of my grip and pushing me to the floor. "Just like your pathetic little sister." He says.

I quickly get up.

"Don't you EVER talk about her." I tell him.

"I'll talk about whoever I want to however I want to." He says to me.

He takes a step closer to me and whispers huskily in my ear.

"See you around, Mia" 

He walks away and leaves me standing there, shivering. 

I slide down the wall and sit on the floor for a moment, trying to regain my strength. 

I hug my legs as a tear streams down my face. 


I can't hide anymore. He's found me and I have to accept that. 

But I don't want to accept that. 

Because the thought of it scares me.
