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?


12. I Can't Lose You


.:~Riley’s PoV~:.

Zayn and I were sitting on the couch at my house watching a movie, well I was and he was sleeping beside me. Our date was amazing. I wasn’t in the best mood, but Zayn seemed really happy about something, which made me happy. I looked over at him. He looked like a five year old when he slept. I was going to miss him terribly. I played with his hair while he slept. It was around one in the morning when my parents came home,

“Hey mom and dad.” I whispered and acknowledged Zayn so that they would see he was sleeping.

“Hello sweetheart.” My mom whispered. She had a huge smile on her face.

“You look happy.” I laughed. She walked towards the kitchen with my dad and signaled for me to follow. I gently placed Zayn’s head on the couch and followed my mom.

When I walked in, I saw my mom’s smile was even bigger than I thought.

“What’s going on mom?”

“Well sweetheart, before we went to dinner, we went to grandma’s to tell her the news about us moving…” my mom started

“Yea… so?” I asked

“Well,” my dad continued, “Because no one would be here to take care of her, she has to move to a retirement home, which she was totally against.”

I wasn’t surprised. My grandma was able to take care of herself, but there were times when she would need some help sometimes, which normally our family did.

“So, well we are trying to convince her to go to a home, she asked about how you were taking the move and your dad and I told her that you didn’t want to because of Zayn and your life here in general. And after we said that, your grandmother had an idea.” My mom said with a smile.

“And the idea was…?” I asked, confused.

“Well, if it was okay with you, your grandma would come live here… with you.”

I smiled, “Wait, so if I agree to take care of grandma, I can stay here and live with her?”

My parents nodded.

“What about money?”
“Well first, your grandma is incredibly rich. Grandpa left behind a couple million dollars, so you should be good and we will send you money too and care for the bills. And the house is entirely paid for.” My dad said, “So how does that sound?”

“It sounds great! Thank you guys!!!!” I cheered quietly and hugged them.

“Yes, but we want to see you at least once a month for a week and we will rotate. We will fly here one month and you will fly to New Jersey the next etc.”

“Okay” I agreed

“And during the summer, you must spend one month over in New Jersey with us.”

“Well then, everything sounds good.”

“So I guess I’ll just finish my school year here, and then move out to New Jersey with you guys right after.”
“Yep, well we are going to bed, goodnight sweetheart.” My dad said and kissed my forehead. I went back in to join Zayn. The couch was really big, so I decided I would crash beside him.

I woke up. It took me a minute to realize I was on Riley’s couch. I look at my phone, 1:15AM. I heard talking from the kitchen,

“So I guess I’ll just finish my school year here, and then move out to New Jersey with you guys right after.”
“Yep, well we are going to bed, goodnight sweetheart.”

Wait… what? Riley is moving to New Jersey with her parents? She was leaving? I can’t believe it. I heard her come back in, so I pretended to still be asleep. She came and wrapped herself in my arms. I breathed her scent in deeply. I want to savor every moment we had left. I was hoping she wouldn’t realize I was awake, but I forgot she was smarter than that.

“Zayn, don’t pretend to be asleep. I know you heard, let’s talk.” She whispered

“I just can’t believe it.” I sighed, sitting up.

“Why not?” she asked

“I’m losing you. I can’t lose you… I-I need you but now you are moving across the ocean.”

“Wait… what? Ohhhhh.” She started to laugh, “Zayn, I’m not moving. My parents are.”
“But you just said-”

“I said move out to New Jersey as in TEMPORARILY!” she was still laughing, “I will stay here, in this house, with my grandmother. Just after grad, I am going to move to New Jersey for a month with my parents.”

I have never felt so relieved, “Oh, okay good. Because I cannot lose you.”
“I can’t loose you either Zayn.” She smiled and kissed me, “Now go back to sleep.”

We fell asleep in each other’s arms. This was perfect.
