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?


26. Just another memory


**Two days later**

.:~Louis’ PoV~:.

The lads and I, minus Zayn, had just landed in London. Once we all got of the plane, we said our goodbyes and right before I got on my flight back to Doncaster, I heard the PA System say “Flight 958 to Bradford is now boarding.”
Shit. I never called Riley. She will be at the airport waiting for Zayn. I’m such an idiot, but it was too late now. As I was on my flight, my mind wandered off and started thinking about people, when Eleanor came to mind. I really like her, and next time I see her, I am going to tell her that. Her and I talk all the time, she is like the Riley who isn’t like my sister. Plus when Riley and Zayn stuff got on my nerves, I could talk to her, because she was just so easy to talk to. I started making up a scenario in my head where El decided to come meet me at the airport, but like that would happen.


**Two Hours Later**

.:~Zayn’s PoV~:.

Perrie and I were waiting at JFK to be called to board our flight when I heard the PA System call a flight to London. I so badly wanted to tell Perrie about Riley and go to Bradford to fix things, but I knew there was no point. The lads had probably just landed back in London and were now heading back to visit their friends and families. I felt like such a jerk, plus I don’t think Louis called Riley… so she will be at the airport, so right now, my flight to Bradford should be landing… and I’m not on it.

“Zayn? You coming?” Perrie said, snapping me out of my thoughts.

“What?” I asked stupidly

“They just called our flight.”

“Oh right. Yea. Let’s go.” I said as I took her hand and we walked onto the plane. Normally when I held hands with Perrie, it didn’t feel perfect, but it felt right… and all of a sudden, it didn’t.


.:~Riley’s PoV~:.

Zayn was coming back to talk to me. Maybe him and Perrie broke up. I can’t believe he went all the way to Little Egg Harbor to try to fix things, and now he was coming back to Bradford to make sure things got fixed. I couldn’t help but smile. I was waiting right by the thing where people would pick up their luggage when I heard the PA system say,

“Flight 958 from London has landed. You can pick up your luggage at station number 8.”

I walked over to station number eight and waited. Soon enough, people started coming out and so did luggage. There were lots of people, so I figured it might take me a few minutes to find Zayn.

After about ten minutes, the heard had mostly cleared out and I still didn’t see Zayn. Suddenly my phone rang.


.:~Louis’ PoV~:.

When I got off my flight to Doncaster, I heard a familiar voice call me,


I looked up to see Eleanor. I ran up to her and gave her a hug, “El, what are you doing here?”

“Harry told me you were coming home, and I don’t want to sound creepy, but I really wanted to see you.”

“Can I let you in on a secret?” I asked with a smirk

“Sure…” she responded a little confused

“I really wanted to see you too. I really like you Eleanor.”

“Really? Because I thought that you wouldn’t because you are you, and I am me.”

“That’s why I like you. Because you are you.” I said then pulled her close and kissed her. I saw cameras flashing everywhere but I didn’t care.

“You sure being with me won’t hurt your rep?” she asked

“Even if it did, I don’t care.” I said to her, “El, will you be my girlfriend?”

All she did was nod and we kissed again.

As we were walking out of the airport, hand in hand, El spoke up,

“So what did Zayn do? Did he go to Florida or did he do the SMART thing and go back to Bradford?”

“Shit. I have to call Riley.”

“Really? I honestly thought he would go back.”

“That’s what we all thought… but I guess not.” I said as I dialed Riley’s number and held the phone up to my ear.


.:~Riley’s PoV~:.

I pulled my phone and looked at the caller ID, it was Louis calling. I picked up,

“He’s not coming… is he?” I said, feeling the tears in the corner of my eyes

“I’m so sorry Riley.” Louis spoke on the other side.

“No, it’s okay. I should’ve known he would pick Perrie over me.”

“No you shouldn’t have known that, because we all thought he’d pick you over Perrie.”

“Yea well he didn’t!” I snapped. I didn’t have to see Louis to know that he had a bit of a hurt expression after I snapped, “I’m sorry Boo Bear. I didn’t mean to freak.”

“It’s okay.” He responded

“Well, it’s late, I should head home.” I sighed

“Wait! Before you hang up…”

“Yea Lou?”

“I took your advice and told Eleanor how I felt.”

“And?” I asked, already knowing the answer from his cheery tone.

“She’s my girlfriend now.”

“She isn’t your girlfriend until she gets my approval.” I joked

“Well then, I guess you will have to meet her soon!” then Louis spoke, I was guessing to El, “I’m sorry El, you can’t be my girlfriend until I get Riley’s approval!” then I heard a faint voice, I’m guessing Eleanor, laugh and say, “Aw darn.”

I laughed really hard then said, “I guess I will have to meet her quick because she seems pretty upset.”

“No shit.” Lou laughed

“Well I gotta go, thanks for putting me in a better mood Lou.”

“Call me later, okay?”

“Will do.”

“Bye, love you.”

“Love you too.” I said and hung up the phone. Almost as soon as I hung up, my phone rang again. This time, it was Zayn. I hesitantly picked up the phone,

“What?” I said coldly

“Riley I’m so sor-”

“No, you know what? Fuck you Malik. I really thought you wanted to fix things.”

“I did.”

“No you didn’t, because if you really wanted to fix things, you would be here in Bradford and not in Florida.”


I hung up before he could finish his sentence. Zayn Malik and I were officially over. No longer boyfriend, no longer best friend… but just an old memory.
