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?


31. I gave my heart away


:~Zayn’s PoV~:.


We kissed for a long time, but the abruptly pulled away and instantly covered her mouth with her hand in shock, realizing what she had done. She started to cry, and I hated that.
“Riley, Riley, please don’t cry. It’s my fault. I’m sorry; I shouldn’t have kissed you. I just haven’t done it in almost two years and I couldn’t help myself.”

“That’s not why I’m crying… I’m crying because I have a boyfriend who I love. But I loved that kiss so much more. I’m such a bad person.” She bawled

“I’m an idiot for doing this.” I mumbled

“You aren’t… I’m sorry Zayn. I need to get back to Jake.”

“No you don’t.” A voice said. Riley looked up and her facial expression would’ve made you think she just saw a ghost. I turned around to see Jake standing there.

“Jake,” Riley started

“Don’t even Riley.” Jake responded, shutting her up. He marched up to me, “You dick. You just had to come back and steal my girlfriend from me. Having the singer wasn’t good enough, you had to have the childhood friend too?”

“Jake, come on man. I’m sorry, go ahead and hate me. Please just forgive Riley.”

The next thing I new, I received a huge punch in the face.

“Okay, I deserved that.” I admitted. I looked over to see Riley with complete shock and fear on her face, “Riley. I’m sorry. I’ll go now.” And I started to walk away

“Zayn.” She called, but I just continued walking. I possibly just ruined that girl’s life. I hated myself more than anything right now. For once, I was worse than Jake.

I go to London tomorrow and I would just leave Riley alone. I didn’t want to, but I also didn’t want to risk fucking up her life even more. I love her, and because I do, I have to let her go


.:~Riley’s PoV~:.

“Jake…” I started once Zayn was gone. Thank god it was really late and the movie theatre was basically empty, because people would have been so freaked.

“Don’t want to talk about it Riley.” He said, calming down

“Please, that kiss was a mistake. I love you.”

“But you love him more.” Jake said, looking me dead in the eye

I didn’t have a response for that. Well I did, he just wouldn’t like it, “Jake, I’m sorry.”

“No, I should’ve known. Tyler knew it was coming from the moment you stood up to us for Zayn. I did too and honestly, as much as I wanted to be with you, I thought you two were made for each other.”

I felt tears after Jake said that. Not just because he was right, but because I now realize he has matured a lot and he isn’t the same person he was ten years ago. And even though I didn’t love him like I loved Zayn, I was crying because I knew where this speech was going.

“Jake, you have matured so much and became a great man. You are so kind and gentle and your future wife will be the luckiest woman ever, but she’s not me. Truth is, I gave my heart away a long time ago, and I never got it back. You are amazing and I do love you, but not that way.”

“I know.” Jake sighed

“You are so kind and calm about all this. Why weren’t you like this five minutes ago?” I asked, semi-joking, semi-honestly wanting to know

“Because I knew you were going to leave me for him.”

“Well I’m not going to run after him right now; maybe not for a while. I need to think for a while, plus I am leaving in a few weeks for San Francisco.”
“Well then, good luck there. Call me, because I do want to come say goodbye.”
“Actually Jake, right now is goodbye.”
“I think I’m going to head back to New Jersey tomorrow.”

He looked down at his feet, “I should’ve known. You were always so happy there.”

I nodded, “Well I should go look at flights and pack. Thanks for being there for me Jake.”

“No problem.”

As he was about to leave, I pulled him back, “Hey Jake?”

“Yea Riley?”
“One last kiss, for old times sake?”

He smiled and then gave me a long kiss. When we pulled away, I gave him a hug and we went our separate ways.
