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...


48. "Why can't my life be an 80's movie..."

Mia's P.O.V 

After we had gotten sick of Pretty Little Liars Alex and I flicked through t.v channels when we came across 'The breakfast club' 

It was getting to the end when Judd Nelson was thrusting his fist into the air when Alex mutes it and turns to me. 

"Why can't my life be an 80's movie?" She asks me, daydreaming. 

"Well I'm sure Harry would be more than happy to sit through a Saturday detention if you were there. And he would certainly thrust his first in the air in triumph at the end of the day." I say, earning a laugh. 

"You know what I mean," she says, "The whole concept of an 80's movie, the cheesy story line, the happy ending. It's sweet."  

"Yeah but this is the 21st century." I tell her, "The guys are stupider, the clothes are sluttier and the happy ending doesn't exist." 

"I think happy endings exist." Alex says, "I mean, its not the cliche fairy tale, riding off into the sunset on his white horse and then living happily ever after in his castle but its still possible to create your own happy ending. I mean isn't that what every girl wants? To find the right guy and create your own fairy tale? There's a reason why 80's movies are so popular, they're classics. And even now chick flicks and stupid romantic comedies are so successful even though the story line is almost non-existent everyone wants to have a chance at their happy ending."

"I guess." I admit, "I mean, I'd be lying if I said that I hadn't pictured John Cusack holding a boombox outside my window, or Judd Nelson thrusting his fist in the air because he knows he got me." I say. 

"Told ya!" Alex says, happily.

"Well, maybe one day." I say, before we both turn back to the T.V. 

Alex's P.O.V

We sit around watching T.V and playing on our phones when I get a text from Harry (Harry - H Alex - A)

H - Hey babe, what u up 2?

A - Not much, hanging with Mia u?

H - Niall just left. I'm lonely :( 

A - Naww sorry babe, maybe I'll come by later? If that's ok...

H - Of course its ok! I'm so bored come over nowwwwwww

A - Haha can't sorry.

H - I'm sure Mia can survive without u

A - Maybe not...

H - What happened with all that anyway? Did she tell you?

A - No, I think I can take a guess though...

H - What? Tell me. 

A - Later.  

H - Fineee. I spoke to Niall...

A - What's he so upset about anyway?

H - Long story, I'll tell u 2night.

A - K, ttyl

H - ttyl 

I then put my phone away and spent the rest of the afternoon chilling with Mia and daydreaming about Harry.

Mia's P.O.V 

"Sorry Mia, but I should probably go." Alex says to me.

"Yeah, that's fine." I say, "Thanks for spending the day with me, I know it couldn't have been easy hanging out with this neurotic hot mess." I say, making her laugh. 

"Well...." She trails off.

"Shut up! You're not supposed to agree with me" I say, nudging her, making her laugh.

"Seeya later!"She says, standing up and walking out the door, closing it behind her. 

I sit by myself for a moment, thinking. 

This is so not how I wanted things to turn out.
