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?


7. He's going to pay


**December, 2009**

.:~Riley’s PoV~:.

Sean and I have been together for almost two amazing years now. I really love him. He is so kind and sweet and considerate. I feel sort of bad though. For the past month I haven’t been spending much time with Zayn and now I’m going to Chicago. for two weeks and leaving him alone. I hadn’t even told Zayn and I leave tomorrow. I have to go over to his place and talk to him.


.:~Zayn’s PoV~:.

At first I hated Sean. I hated that he got Riley before I did. Then I started to hate Sean less. I love to see Riley happy, and he defiantly makes that happen. I haven’t seen her that happy since Tyler passed. He would always buy her flowers and presents “just because”. Whenever I see her smile, I can’t help but smile back. The only problem is since the beginning of June, I have barely seen Riley. She was always busy with work, school or Sean. Now even at lunch, Sean would invite her to sit with him and the popular kids and she would say yes most of the time. I can’t believe I’m losing her.

My parents were away for the weekend and we are now off of school for the winter break. I was sitting in my room, looking through old photo albums of Riley, Tyler and myself when I heard my doorbell ring. I ran downstairs and opened the door. When I opened it, I couldn’t see a person, but instead a pillow, popcorn bags, sodas, junk food on my porch,

“What the hell?” I mumbled and then yelped when someone jumped out in front me. Riley.

“Hey Zayn!”

“Oh… Hi Riley.” I said coldly.

“Zayn, I’m so sorry… I know I haven’t been there for you since I started dating Sean but I promise that is going to change from here on out, I promise. I swear on Tyler’s grave that from now on, Zayn, you come before Sean.” She said, sincerely. I knew it was sincere because she swore on her brother’s grave and that meant a lot.

“But what is Sean doesn’t like that? What if he is jealous?” I said, still trying to be mad, but I was failing.

“Well then,” she smiled, “I guess if that’s how Sean felt, then he wouldn’t be worth my time. We are only friends and that’s all we will ever be and Sean needs to understand that if he wants to be with me.”

That last sentence kind of hurt, but still I couldn’t help but smile, “Really?”

“Really.” She replied. I smiled and pulled her into a big hug and she wrapped her arms around me. I missed her hugs so much. “So what is all this for?” I asked, pulling away and acknowledging the pillows and junk food on my porch.

“Oh right,” she laughed, “we are having a sleepover/movie night. Don’t worry I checked with your mom, she’s good with it.”

“Is Sean?” I asked.

“I don’t care.” She replied with a smile.


We spent most of our Friday night watching movies. We were watching Dear John and Riley was crying, so I put my arm around her. If only I could do this all the time. Put my arm around her, call her mine. The last thing I remembered were my eyes falling shut.


I woke up in the morning on the couch; my head was on someone’s lap. I looked up to see Riley sleeping. Her eyes fluttered open, she looked so beautiful,

“Hey Zayn… OH MY GOD! What time is it?”

“Um,” I looked at my watch, “8AM.”
“Shit!” she yelled and jumped up. I sat up quickly so she wouldn’t knock me off the couch.

“What is it?” I asked.

“Um, well, I’m sorry I didn’t tell you this before but… um Zayn I leave for Chicago today… in like, four hours.” She sounded sad that she hadn’t told me. I was kind of freaking out, was she moving there? I stopped worrying myself and decided I would asked her first, “How long will you be gone for?”

“Just two weeks.” She replied

“Good. I was scared you were moving.” I said, relieved

No. Never would I move and leave you and Sean behind… Shit. I gotta go. I’ll see you in a few weeks.” She gave me a quick kiss on the cheek, a hug, and then was out the door.


A few hours later, I was bored so I decided to go for a walk in the park. I walked over to the pond where Riley and I used to feed the ducks when we were kids. As I was sitting there, listening to Torn by Natalie Imbruglia, something really weird caught my eye. It was a boy and a girl sitting on a bench making out, but the guy looked REALLY familiar. When they pulled away, I finally realized who the guy was and saw that the girl was not who it should be. He was going to pay.
