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?


18. How Could I?


Loved You First ~ Ch. XIV


**December 2010**

.:~Riley’s PoV~:.


I sat up in my bed smiling up at the ceiling. I was thinking about the last time I had seen Zayn. A few days after the judges houses, Zayn and I had gone home. We spent time catching up and just hanging like old times. We would cuddle for hours and hours on end. When he left, I was heartbroken. I was going to miss him so much and was always worried he would meet someone prettier and smarter than I was. He knew I worried about that, so he left his hoodie that I loved and told me “As long as you have this, you are mine and I am yours.” I was so proud of him. He was doing so well on the XFactor. Him and the others have made it into the top three that happens next week. I am supposed to head down on Tuesday so I can watch his performance. Then my phone beeped, it was a text from Lou. I was always texting with the guys. I think they like me and I like them too, so the one thing that I was worried about was out of the way. Out of all the guys, other than Zayn, I was closest with Louis, probably because he reminded me of Tyler. The text said,

<From BooBear: Hey hey Ry Ry>
<To BooBear: Hey Lou! Haven’t heard from you in a while! What’s up?>

<From BooBear: Nothing much, love. So I know how you aren’t supposed to come down until Monday, but we all miss you… me the most, duh! No I’m kidding, Zayn misses you the most, but anyways, could you come down early? He wants to see you and we want to surprise him>

<To BooBear: Sure. When do you want me to come down? I’m good whenever. My grandma is away visiting her friend>
<From BooBear: Well if you are good whenever…>

I was a little confused by the text until I heard a honk outside. I quickly gazed out my window, and then a huge smile appeared on my face when I saw Lou leaning on a car right outside my house. I quickly threw on my jacket and uggs then ran outside and gave Louis a big hug,

“Hey BooBear!” I said happily

“Hey Rylie! How are you doing?”

“I’m fine thanks! I can’t believe you drove four hours down here!”

“Well honestly, Zayn would kill me if I let you drive four hours through this weather.” He laughed, “Zayn was going to surprise you by picking you up Sunday night, but we want to surprise him instead. He’s always sneaking off to be alone and I think he misses you like hell.”

“Okay, well let me go throw a bag together and we can head out! Here, come on in.”


I lead Louis inside my house and offered him a drink as I ran to pack a bag. I was done quickly, so I threw on Zayn’s sweater and ran downstairs. We were out the door quickly.


We were about halfway there. Louis and I had been talking and laughing the whole ride. We had been silent for the past five minutes. I glanced up at Louis, and though he was concentrating on the road, I could see in his eyes that he was thinking of someone. I quietly laughed then spoke up,

“Who’s on your mind Lou?”

“What… no-no one is on my mind? Why would you say that?” he said, obviously hiding something

“Bitch please,” I said laughing, “You can see it in your eyes and with your eyes, she must be pretty special. What’s her name?” I asked

We just stopped at a red light. Louis looked down at his feet then smiled,

“Her name is Eleanor.”

“Ahh, where did you meet her?”
“One of Harry’s friends who worked at the bakery with him knew El. I went with Haz once when he went to visit her and El was there too. It was like love at first sight, well at least for me.”

“Well then you should go for her.” I said as the light turned green and we continued to drive.

“I’m too shy.”

“Louis? Shy? Really?”
“When it comes to girls I’m sweet on, I’m really shy.”

“Well, here is a secret. Girls think guys who are shy are cute. You should go for it.”
“Eh, I’ll think about it.”


We still had an hour of driving left, I decided to close my eyes and sleep for the rest of the way.


The next thing I knew, I was being gently shaken awake,

“Rylie, we are here, Zayn is somewhere around here. You should be able to find him somewhere around here.”

“Okay,” I said happily as I got out of the car.


We walked around for a while, looking for Zayn. Lou had texted the guys asking if they knew where he was, but they had no idea. I was starting to loose hope, wondering if I should just text him and tell him I was here. Just as I was about to text him, I looked up and what I saw made my heart drop. Louis looked over at me,

“What’s wrong?” he asked

“N-nothing,” I stuttered, but he knew I was lying, because me gaze hadn’t moved from what was breaking my heart. I just couldn’t seem to pull my eyes away. Louis followed my gaze, then his expression dropped when he saw his bandmate holding hands and making out with some little red head.

“Rylie… I’m so sorry.”

“Yea… I’m sorry too.” I said and quickly turned around and ran. Louis ran after me and grabbed me around the waist.

“Please put me down, I want to be alone.” I cried

“No, you are coming back to the hotel and we will talk to the guys.”
I caved and let Louis carry me to the hotel. When we walked in, Liam, Harry and Niall were all in the boys’ room.

“RYYYYYY!” Harry said happily as I walked in.

“Hey Hazza.” I said sadly.

“What happened?” he asked, instantly catching on the fact that something was wrong. Louis was about to speak when we saw Liam look at his phone then his face dropped.

“What is it Li?” Niall asked

“I know what’s wrong.” He said as he showed us his phone. Zayn had been tagged in a tweet that had a picture attached. The picture was of with Zayn and the redhead kissing and when you looked closely in the background, you saw Louis and me with shocked faces. I broke down into tears again. The boys all came around and hugged me. I cried for a moment, and then just shook them off. I walked into Zayn’s room and looked down at the hoodie that was keeping me warm as his words rang through my head,

“As long as you have this, you are mine and I am yours.”

Fighting back tears, I took off the hoodie and threw it on his bed as I whispered,

“I guess you aren’t mine anymore.” Then I walked out and turned to the guys,

“Can one of you drive me to the train station?” They all looked like they wanted to protest, but they knew it was what I wanted. Lou spoke up,

“I will.”

I hugged the boys and said sadly, “I think this will be the last time I see you.”

They opened their mouths to protest, but no words came out. I smiled sadly then Louis and I walked out the door.


**A few hours later**

.:~Zayn’s PoV~:.

I had just gotten back from my date with Marlee. I don’t know why I did it… I was just so lonely without Riley. I noticed I had been tagged in a tweet. SHIT Marlee posted the picture on Twitter. I quickly untagged myself before Riley could see. As I walked into our hotel room, I saw Liam, Harry, Niall and Louis sitting on the couch. When they saw me, a trace of anger flashed across their faces.

“Hey lads, I’m going to take a shower.”

None of them replied. Something must be wrong. I wonder if they knew I was out with another girl. I hoped they hadn’t told Riley, because I love Riley so much and didn’t want to lose her. As I walked into my room, something on my bed caught my eye. It was my hoodie… the hoodie I had given to Riley. I quickly grabbed it,

“No, no, no!” I whisper yelled. Then I ran out to the guys to ask if she was still here, but as if they read my mind, Liam spoke up,
“You’re too late mate.”

Louis looked up at me angrily, “HOW COULD YOU?” he yelled then stormed off to his room. He was right… How could I?
