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...


30. Time for the truth...well part of it...

Mia's P.O.V

"Um, Niall I need to tell you something." I tell him, laying my head on his chest.

"Yeah?" He asks.

"Promise me you won't get mad." I tell him.

"uh-oh. You didn't make out with another one of my friends did you?" 

"That's not funny." I tell him.

"I'm sorry. What is it?"

"Well, remember that day you called me and told me not to check my twitter because of hate?" I ask him, lifting my head and sitting up straighter. 

"Yeah, and you told me you didn't care about those peoples opinions." He replies. 

"Yeah, well that's true. But when I looked at those tweets most of them were rumors about me."

"Yeah but there's always rumors." He tells me.

"I know and I get that, I totally get that and you know I trust you and if I hear stuff about you I won't believe it unless you tell me yourself right?"

"Yeah I know that, I trust you too. Mia, what's this about?" He asks, sitting up straighter

"Well, this morning Zayn and I didn't just get mobbed by fans. We got mobbed by paps as well and I just thought that I should tell you that there will probably be some photos out tomorrow and based on the photos, I know there's going to be rumors and I-"

He cuts me off with a light kiss.

"I think we've already established that that's a sure-fire way to shut me up. But seriously this is important." I tell him. 

"Look Mia, I trust you and believe me I know not to listen to the press. What are you so worried about?"

"I kissed Zayn!" I exclaim, frustrated.

"I'm sorry what?" Niall says, surprised. 

"Ok, that came out wrong. Basically what happened was, after Zayn and I ran away from the paps we were talking and then I hugged him and kissed him on the cheek. Just a friendly hug and a kiss, it didn't mean anything I swear." I explain as he sits and listens.

"Mia, that's fine. Why would I get mad about something like that?" He asks me. 

"I don't know. I just- I don't know. I guess I thought- I don't even know what I thought. I just-"

"Mia, relax." He says, cutting me off. "I don't have a problem with any of that and I'm sorry if I made you think that I would. I really like you Mia and I don't want to lose you, I trust you and I trust my friends. You might have kissed Liam, but I think I know you well enough to know that you wouldn't hurt me like that. And besides its not like you and Zayn have feelings for each other."

"You're incredible." I tell him, engulfing him in a hug and burying my head in the crook of his neck.

"No I'm not." He says, hugging me back.

"Yes you are." I tell him, pulling out of the hug and looking him in the eyes, "You don't give yourself enough credit." As I say this I could have sworn his cheeks went pink. 

"Naww babe, are you blushing?" I say, pinching his cheeks. 

"No!" He says quickly, pulling away.

"I think you are! I think wittle Niall is a wittle embarrassed." I say to him in baby talk. 

"I am not!" He says.

"Are you sure? Because I think wittle Niall doesn't know how perfect he is." I say in baby talk, pinching his cheeks again.

"Ok, that's it." Niall says, launching forward and pinning me to the couch so that he's lying on top of me. He then leans down and kisses me passionately on the lips. I kiss him back and when he pulls away I'm silent. 

"What's wrong Wittle Mia? Cat got your tongue?" He says to me in the same baby voice I had used on him. 

I grab his neck and pull his face down onto mine, kissing him again. 

We were happily making out, him lying on top of me, when suddenly Niall's phone rings. 

When he tries to pull away I wrap my arms around his neck, pulling him back down.

"Hold that thought." He says, moving my arms and climbing off of me.

I sit up, and sigh as he answers the phone. 

"Hey Harry what's up?" He asks.

I zone out as he continues his conversation with Harry and decide to text Zayn: (M - Mia Z - Zayn)

M - Hey I just spoke to Niall

Z - ...

M - Don't worry, all good, I told him the truth :)

Z - So you told him about your abusive boyfriend, who hit u last night?

M - Ex-boyfriend and no not exactly...

Z - ?

M - He still believes that me hitting myself with the blush brush is true but I told him about how we were mobbed by paps and that they got pictures of us talking and hugging and me kissing u on the cheek and not to believe any rumors he might hear. 

Z - Oh so that version of the truth...

M - Hey! Don't judge. And u promised u wouldn't tell and that u would back me up!

Z - I'm not judging, and i will back u up, u know i will and i wont tell.

M - Thanks :)

Z - anyways, did u tell him why u kissed me on the cheek?

M - No, he didn't ask, i just said that after we ran away from the paps we were talking and then I hugged u and kissed u on the cheek & that it was just a friendly hug and a kiss, and that it didn't mean anything, 

Z - didnt mean anything?

M - Well, it meant something, but it didnt mean anything, mean anything

Z - Wut?

M - It meant that u were being a good friend and i was grateful but it didnt mean anything romantic.

Z - K cool, just checking ur understanding was the same as mine. 

M - yeah, all good x

Z - cool :) cya @ Liam's yeah?

M - Yeah, we'll be there :)

Z -  cool

M - yeah, cool. Thanks again :)

After I send the last message, Niall had finished on the phone and came and sat next to me.

"So what did Harry want?" I ask.

"He told me about his night."

"Ohhhhh" I say, cooing.

"Yeah, he really likes Alex, its cute." He tells me.

"Yeah, she's really nice. I think we're gonna become good friends." I say.

"Yeah, um, Mia, about that..." Niall trails off.

"Yeah?" I ask confused.

"Um, do you have any other friends in London?" He asks. 

"Uh, not really." I say, embarrassed, "I just moved here, and the first person I met was Liam. And then you. I was kind of a loner but I would have made friends eventually."

"Well I'm very glad my car broke down and Liam wasn't home. And I'm also very glad you are so good at fixing engines." He says, making me giggle. 

He drops a light kiss on my forehead and we sit and talk for the next few hours until we had to go to Liam's.
