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?


22. He still loves you


Loved You First ~ Ch. XVIII


.:~Louis’ PoV~:.

When I finally arrived in New Jersey, I quickly got off the plane and called Zayn. As the phone was ringing, I heard Zayn’s ringtone to my left. I looked over and saw Zayn answering his phone with his back to me,

“Hello?” he said

“Hey Zayn, it’s Lou.”
“Hey Louis. Where are you?” he asked, sounding really sad.

“Are you okay Zayn? You sound sad.”

“Um yea, I’ll explain when I see you face to face.” Zayn replied

“Well then turn around.”
Zayn turned around and I saw his sad face look at me. He looked like he had been crying. I walked up to him and hugged him,

“Zayn? What happened?”

“John took her before I could.”


“Yea… why are you here?” Zayn asked

“Um, I came down here because I wanted to make sure you were okay.”

“Yea… well I guess if Riley is with John, he will take a lot better care of her than I did.”


.:~Riley’s PoV~:.


I pulled away from John and I’s kiss and looked up to him. The sparkle he used to have when he looked at me was gone. I honestly felt nothing in that kiss and I could tell he didn’t either.

“Well…” he started

“Um… yea.” I said nervously

“Can I be honest with you Riley?” he asked

“Of course, you can always be honest with me John.”

“I have never kissed anyone and felt absolutely nothing… until now.”

I laughed at his comment, “Agreed.”

We both laughed while sitting in the snow, “It’s kinda weird to think I wanted to be with you for so long and then when it happened…”

“I know. But I think we were just meant to be besties. It felt like I was kissing my brother.”

“Agreed. And we tell NO ONE about this.”

“I think that’s a good idea.”

Zayn and I talked for a little while longer and he told me the whole story, when his flight back to Bradford was announced.

“Well I gotta go, do you want to fly back with me bro?”

“Um, actually I might go talk to Riley, if that’s okay with you.”
“Yea, sure, whatever, I can’t stop you from talking to her. Just tell her I love her and that I’m sorry.”

“I will. I won’t go until tomorrow though, because it’s late.”
“Okay, later man.” Zayn said as he gave me a hug.


**The Next Afternoon**

The cab dropped me off at a café in Little Egg Harbor. When I walked in, everyone looked up at me, either because I was Louis Tomlinson from One Direction or a stranger in this little town. One of the workers behind the counter looked up at me first confused, but then something seemed to hit him. He walked out from behind the counter and up to me,

“Are you Louis Tomlinson?”
“Um, yea.”
“Is Zayn Malik with you?”
“No, he went home.”
“Okay… why are you here now that he is gone?”
“Do you know Riley Campbell?”
“Yea, her and my sister are really good friends, why?”

“Because I need to talk to her… do you know where I can find her?”

“Um, I’m not sure, she was in here about ten minutes ago, so she is either at home or she went for a walk. I’ll call Alyssa and ask.”

“Okay, thank you.” I said as he pulled his phone out, dialed a number and put it up against his ear. He stood there silently until someone must’ve picked up,

“Hey Lyssie it’s Russell… I’m just at work… Yea… Uh-huh I’ll remember to pick that up on my way home… yes… anyways, do you know where Riley is?... Okay thanks sis, bye.” Russell, I’m guessing his name was, hung up the phone and turned to me, “She is going to call her and call me back. Do you want coffee?”

“Um, sure, I’ll have two creams and two sugars.”
“Okay, I’ll get you that.”

About 2 minutes later he came back with a coffee. I took out my wallet, but he stopped me,

“It’s on the house.”

“Oh thank you.” I said and then I heard a phone ring. It was Russell’s, he pulled it out of his pocket,

“Hello?... Hey Lyss… So you know where she is?... Where?... Oh really? Awesome! Thanks… Why?... Oh because someone wants to talk to her… um, it’s Zayn’s friend Louis… No he isn’t with him, he went home… okay bye… No I’m going to take him there, my shift is over… kk I will, see you!... bye.” And he hung up the phone.

“She’s at the park, I’ll take you there.”

He led me to the park. There weren’t many people there probably because it was the middle of winter. He led me down towards a pond where there was a brunette sitting on a bench with her back to us. Russell pointed at her,

“There she is.”
“I thought Riley had blonde hair.” I said

“Yea, it was dyed blonde, she washed out the dye… she is a naturel brunette.”

“Oh, okay, well thanks Russell.”

“No problem.” He said as he walked away. I walked towards Riley and without saying a word, I sat on the bench. I didn’t look at her, but out of the corner of my eye, I saw her look at me and when she realized who I was, shock crossed her face,

“Louis? What are you doing here?”

“I came to talk to you.”

“He isn’t with you, right?”
“No… he went home.”

“Wait he was here?”
Oh shit. I forgot she didn’t know. I wasn’t supposed to tell her. Oh well too late now,

“Um, yea… he was.”
“Well why didn’t he come see me?”

I told her the entire story about how Zayn had come here to win her back because he loves her, but then left because he saw her with John.

“Wait, so he came here to fight for me? But left when he saw me kiss John?” she asked

“Yep. He was going to talk to you, but when he saw you and John kiss, he thought that maybe John will take better care of you than he ever had.”

She didn’t respond.

“So are you happy with John?”

She was quiet for another minute then a smirk came across her face as she finally spoke up, “There is no John and I. The kiss didn’t feel right. I kissed him out of spite. John and I are just going to stay friends.”

“Zayn probably will feel like an idiot when he hears that.” I said.

“Then don’t tell him. Just don’t talk about John and I at all. You guys are going to be famous and tour the world plus you guys will always be in Britain and I’m here.”

“Then come back. Live with your grandmother.”
“But I like it here. I want to come back, but my family is here.” She said sadly.

“Is there any chance that you will ever come back?”

“Maybe. My parents said that when my grandma passes, we will go back to Bradford…”

“He’ll wait for you.”

“Don’t let him. Make sure he moves on… I think you should go now.” Riley said as she stood up to walk away.

“He wanted me to tell you he loves you.”

She froze dead in her tracks. She turned back to me, “Tell him I’m sorry.” And she walked away
