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...


38. Whirlpool of weird

"What." The word escapes my lips before I can stop it.

"What?" Niall repeats, looking hurt. "Nothing Mia. Nothing." He says, answering his own question.

"No-Niall- I-" I stutter.

I try to explain myself but the words won't come out.

Suddenly my throat closes and my mouth turns to rubber. I want to say something. I want to be able to make the sad look on his face disappear but I can't. The only other guy that's ever told me he loved me was Jake. But he ended up hitting me multiple times so don't really think that counted.

"I-I have to go." I manage to say before spinning on my heel and bolting out the door, slamming it closed behind me.

As soon as I had stepped out of my apartment the tears start to fall and I get a twist of nausea and guilt in the pit of my stomach. I run down the flights of stairs until I reach the door of the apartment building. I step outside when I suddenly see Jake's familiar figure walking down the street.

Relieved that he hadn't seen me, and not wanting to see him, I turn quickly and run back up the stairs and pound on the door of the only place I can think off.

"Mia. What are you-" Liam starts, standing in the doorway looking very confused.

"Can I come in?" I ask.

"Yeah, of course." He says, closing the door behind me as I step inside and sit down.

He sits next to me and caresses my cheek, wiping away my tears. "Mia what happened?" He asks thoughtfully.

I lose it at the sound of his calm voice. I break to pieces and fall apart right in front of him. The tears flow down my cheeks like waterworks and he pulls me in for a hug.

I hug him back and sob into his shirt, just like I had with Niall the night before. But this was different. Because it was Liam holding me. Liam whispering in my ear that it would be alright and telling me to breathe deeply and calm down.

Once I was all cried out I straighten up and compose myself.

"I'm sorry." I tell him.

"It's ok." He says, "do you want to talk about it?" He asks.

His words remind me of what Niall had said. About me putting up a wall and not wanting to talk to him about things and here I was about to pour my heart out to Liam.

"We had a fight." I tell him.

"You and Niall?" He asks and I nod in reply.

"And he told me he loved me." I tell him. At my words his face changed into- jealousy? 

"Anyway, we were fighting and yelling at each other and then he calls me the woman that he loves and I freak out and because I'm an idiot I say what and then he gets mad but I don't even think he was mad I think he was sad and I saw the look of hurt on his face and it hurt me and I feel terrible and I had to leave so I came here and I don't even know why I'm here but I know that I-"

He cuts off my rant by pressing his soft lips to mine, taking me by surprise.

I almost start to kiss him back but then I come to my senses, pushing him away and standing up.

"Mia I'm sorry I don't know what came over me I-" he says but I cut him off.

"I have to go." I say for the second time that morning and rush out the door.

Once I was out of Liam's apartment I lean against the door frame and take a few minutes to think.

This has been a very chaotic morning and I needed time and space to breathe. 'This has just been a whirlpool of weird.' I think to myself, pulling out my phone and texting the one person that I know will listen and won't try to shut me up by kissing me.
