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?


45. Not Like This


.:~Zayn’s PoV~:.


I can’t even describe Riley’s face when Carson said her name. It was so happy. She gave Emma a quick hug and then threw her arms around me. I pulled her in,

“I’m so proud of you.”

“Thanks Zayn. I love you.”

“I love you too.” I said, and then I kissed her, in front of millions of people. The whole crowd went silent for a moment, but the cheers started up again right away. When we pulled away, she looked up at me and smiled,

“Well I guess Ziley is out in the open.”
“It is. Congratulations Riley. You have won a recording contract with Universal Records in Hollywood!” Carson cheered.

I forgot… Universal Records is in Hollywood. So Riley wasn’t going to come back to London with me. I was going to lose her again. I all of a sudden got sad, but I kept a happy face on for Riley, because I am incredibly proud of her. I wondered if any of this has come to Riley’s mind. This is her night and I don’t want to ruin it.


Then the show ended. We all walked off stage and went back to the hotel. The guys, Terry and Riley all came up to our room and we celebrated. We invited Emma, but she just acted all bitchy and rejected us, not that we actually wanted her there. Around midnight, we decided to all go to bed. Riley was going to leave to go to her own room when I stopped her,

“Riley, where are you going? Why don’t you just stay here?”

“I just want to be alone.” she replied, she sounded like she was about to cry. I turned her so she faced me

“Ry, what’s wrong love?”

She took a deep sigh then spoke, “Zayn, I am so happy I won this, but Universal Records is in Hollywood and you… you’re in London. Zayn I have lost you so many times, I can’t lose you again.”
“What are you saying?”
“I’m saying I’m not taking the record deal. Zayn I’m not letting you go again.”

“Riley you can’t give up something as big as this. It’s an incredible opportunity and I can’t let you pass this up.”
“But Zayn, we promised we wouldn’t let each other go again.”

“Riley, we aren’t letting each other go, we are just, um, working.”
“You will be an 11-hour plane ride away. You have a tour coming up. Zayn, almost a year ago, when I left you there at the airport, do know how long it took me to realize that I want to be with you?”
“No, how long did it take?”
“About 10 seconds. The minute I walked away from you, I wanted to run back into your arms and kiss you and tell you I loved you. I’m not going to take that chance again.”

“Riley, everything’s going to be okay. But I can’t let you throw this away; this is a once in a lifetime chance. You can’t give it up… I won’t let you.”

“But Zayn…”
“But nothing. Come on Riley, let’s go to sleep.” I said as I took her hand and led her into my bedroom. I handed her some sweats and a t-shirt and she went into the washroom to change. While she did that, I went back out into the kitchen where Harry, Niall, Liam and Louis were all sitting having a glass of water.

“Hey Zayn! What’s up?” Louis asked, acknowledging my presence.

“I have to talk to you guys about Riley.”
“What is it?”
“She is thinking of giving up the record deal because of me.”

“She can’t do that! This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity!” Liam yell/whispered

“I know, and that’s why I have a plan…”


**The Next Morning**

.:~Riley’s PoV~:.

I woke up to the sound of a door closing.

I recalled having this dream that seemed so lifelike, it was about Zayn, he had come out of the bathroom, kissed me on the forehead, told me he loved me and then said goodbye.

Once I was fully awake, I felt no one in the bed next to me, instead my hand touched a piece of paper. I picked it up and when my eyes finally adjusted to the light, I read it,

Riley, this is a once in a lifetime opportunity and I’m not going to let you pass it up because of me. I will always love you, and that’s why I have to let you go and let you do this. I am yours forever, I promise. I love you –Zayn

I instantly shot up out of bed. I wasn’t going to let Zayn go. He came way before my carrier. I ran into the main room yelling his name, but there was no answer. I looked in all of the lads’ rooms, but they were all empty. They were gone. I missed my chance.

No, I wasn’t letting him get away that easily. I quickly brushed my hair, threw on some clothes and drove to the airport. It wasn’t ending, not like this.


[A/N] Sorry for the shorter chapter. So originally I said there would only be about one to three more chapters, but now there will be a few more, probably about 45-50 chapters total in the end, so I will write about 6-11 more chapters. Also, as always, like, comment and fav, as well as follow me on IG and twitter, @kenny_tomlinson
