Loved You First

Zayn Malik was new to his school and was bullied like crazy, but when he meets Riley, the sister of one of the bullies, they become the closest friends. But when they both realize what their dreams are, will it tear them apart? or will they do everything to keep their once in a lifetime friendship alive?

.:~Riley’s PoV~:.


I swear that carrot totally jinxed it. It was two in the morning three weeks ago when we got the call. My grandmother had a heart attack and died shortly after. I hated myself for having left her, but now we were moving back home. We leave tomorrow.


As I was finishing up packing my room, I noticed some old photo albums. I went and picked one up labeled “Riley and Grandma”. I opened it up and it was all pictures of gran and me. I felt the tears in tears in the corner of my eyes as I flipped through the pictures, remembering all the good times. After I had enough of the tears, I decided to watch some TV, but that didn’t make me feel much better because of all the things that could be on TV, what was currently on was a promotion for One Direction’s new world tour. I hadn’t been paying much attention to them, I mean I did have their album and have seen all of their music videos. I wanted to be a huge fan and support them, but Zayn killed me too much. I just want to find him and talk to him. Maybe going back to Bradford will give me that chance. The newscaster pulled me out of my deep thought when he said,

“And in one month, One Direction will be performing here in New York City for their Up All Night World Tour.”

Great, I thought, if only I could be here for another month… but whom am I kidding? I’m pretty sure he had a girlfriend now, Perrie or something like that. I’m probably the last thing on his mind. I looked over at my clock, it was 11PM, my flight leaves tomorrow morning, so I got already for bed and cried myself to sleep.


The next morning, we got up really early. Everyone came to say goodbye.

First, I gave Russell I hug, “Take care of Alyssa, okay?”

“Will do,” he replied, “I’m going to miss you.”

“I’m gonna miss too Russ.”

Next was Andrew and Mary-Kate, I wasn’t very close to him, but he was still pretty cool. Mary-Kate and I were pretty close. Andrew and Mary-Kate were engaged, and I was one of the bridesmaids, so I would come back then.

“Stay safe in Bradford.” Andrew said

“You stay safe here. I’ll see you in three months for the wedding. I’m so happy for you two.” I said as I gave them a hug.

I said a quick goodbye to Matt and Nikki, because I wasn’t very close with either of them. Next I went to hug Patrick, and he may be big and tough, but he was also a huge softie. He had tears in the corner of his eyes,

“Aw Pat, don’t cry. I’m gonna cry.”

“Wh-what? I’m not crying… I’m just sweating through my eyes.”

“Uh-huh, sure.” I said and pulled him into a hug. Then I moved on to Alyssa,

“You are such an amazing friend. I am going to miss you so much.”
“I’m going to miss you too.” She said. Now I was crying, especially because I had saved John, my best friend here, for last.

“I’m really gonna miss you. I love you like a sister and I’m so sad you’re leaving. Can we please just leave it at this?” he said with tears brimming his eyes.

“Okay,” I nodded and pulled him in for a hug.


I said a final goodbye to all of them and my parents and I drove to the airport. It was a really long flight.

When we finally landed, we grabbed our luggage quickly. My parents had to go do something quickly, so I just stayed put. I looked around at my surroundings and realized that I was where Zayn and I had said goodbye the first time I went to New Jersey. I felt the tears in the corner of my eyes. As much as I hate him, I still love him and want to be with him. As I stood there basically bawling, I heard a voice that was way to familiar call my name,


I turned to where the voice was coming from, shocked at who I saw,


**One Month later**

.:~Liam’s PoV~:.


The guys and I left on our very first world tour five weeks ago. We started in the USA and now we are in New York City. We had just arrived. This was my first time in the United States ever. When we landed at JFK, fans instantly mobbed us. I was really surprised we had fans over the ocean. Our new manager/bodyguard Paul came up and protected us as he led us to away from the fans to the car.


When we got to our hotel and settled in, I told the lads I would run outside to do a coffee run. When I got there, the fans saw me, despite my attempt at a disguise. At first it was just a few, so I happily signed some autographs. When I got to the front counter, a bunch of fans had finally seen me. I got prepared to be mobbed, until I felt someone pull me into a closet or something like that. I freaked out for a sec, but then I looked down to see a short girl with brown hair looking up at me. She was wearing a Starbucks hat, so she must’ve worked here,

“Um, thanks.” I said shyly

“No problem. Didn’t want you to get killed by your fans.”

“So you aren’t going to kill me?” I joked

“Not yet.” She replied, laughing, “Oh and here is your order.” She added, handing me a tray of coffees.

“Thank you.”
“No problem, you can sneak out the back.”

“Wait, before I go, I’m Liam.”
“I know who you are. I’m Taylor.”

“Well Taylor, I owe you for saving me, so could I take you out to dinner?”
“You don’t have to.”
“I know… I want to.”

“Really? Most guys don’t want to go out with me.”

“Then most guys are stupid. I’ll pick you up here, tonight at eight.”

“Okay, sounds good. Thank you Liam.”
“Please, I should be saying thanks to you. I’ll see you tonight.” I handed her the money for the coffee and snuck out the back door.



I walked up to the coffee shop and saw Taylor dressed up all pretty waiting out front. I walked up to her,

“You look stunning.” I said and kissed her on the cheek. She blushed and smiled,

“Thank you.”


(There is other stuff I want to write about, so I am going to skip the entire date, you guys can make up what happens, but they both had a great time.)


“I had a really nice time.” Taylor said as I dropped her off at her house.

“I’m glad. I did too.” I replied, “I’m here for three more days. Come to the concert tomorrow and then Thursday we could go out again.”

“I’d like that.” She said with a beautiful smile. She was so stunning. I couldn’t help myself. I leaned in and gave her a kiss, and to my surprise, she kissed back. I smiled, gave her a small kiss on the cheek and then went home.

By the time I got home, the guys were already out cold, so I just headed off to bed.


**Two days later**

.:~Zayn’s PoV~:.


I got up at 9AM this morning; because I had to sneak out before the boys could find me. We didn’t get home until 3AM yesterday because we had our concert. I know it’s wrong, I know I have a girlfriend. Don’t get me wrong, I love Perrie so so so much, but my heart will forever belong to Riley, and even if she’s with John, she needs to know how sorry I am, and how much I love her, even if she doesn’t love me. Just as I was about to leave and take a cab to New Jersey because I can’t drive, I heard some ask,

“Zayn, where are you going?”

I turned around to see Lou, “Out.” I replied

“Are you going to New Jersey?”


“Zayn…” he sighed

“Look, Lou. She needs to know that I love her and how sorry I am.”

“She knows you love her. And she loves you.”

“But she’s with John. And she hates me.”

“She isn’t with John. And she may hate you… but her love for you is so much stronger.”

“All the more reason I need to go talk to her.”

“What about Perrie? Don’t you love her?”
“I do… I’m just really confused. Please just let me go and figure it out.”

Louis let out a huge sigh, “Okay Zayn, but, just be careful.”

I nodded and left. I had to go find Riley.
