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?


28. Rather be with You


**A few days later** .:~Riley’s PoV~:.   Tonight I had my date with Jake. I was actually pretty excited. He was drop dead gorgeous and now he seems so sweet now. We were going out on a romantic date tonight and I was really excited. I curled my brown hair into loose ringlets and put on a white strapless dress with a black bow on it. Just as I was doing the final touch ups on my makeup, my doorbell rang. I finished up and ran downstairs. My parents had already opened the door and let Jake in. They were sitting in our living room talking when I walked in. Jake looked up at me, “Wow. You look beautiful.” He said “You don’t look so bad yourself.” I responded. Jake laughed as he took my hand and we went out to dinner. Our date was amazing. He took me to this little restaurant in the city, it was fancy and the food was so good. Near the end of the date I told Jake that we should do this again. “I agree.” He said, “but I’m going out of town for a few days, I have some work in Spain for a few days, and I leave tomorrow.” “Awe, I’ll be all alone. Oh well.” I joked.   When he dropped me off at home, we shared a long kiss on my porch. Then he looked at me, “I always thought I had lost my chance with you when Zayn came around. I thought you two would be together forever.” I was in a good mood until he said that, “Yea… so did I, but I guess you have your chance with me now.” “And I know not to mess it up. Goodnight Riley.” “Goodnight Jake.” I said and gave him a kiss on the cheek. I walked into my house quietly, just incase my parents were sleeping. When I walked in, I heard my mother’s voice coming from the living room. She was on the phone, “No she isn’t home… she’s on a date… I don’t think you’d want to know… you sure?... Jake… Yes, Jake Carl… I don’t think that’d be a good idea, I think you should leave her alone… honestly, I don’t know what will happen in two months… okay… see you then if you decide to come… bye…” I walked in, “Hey mum, who was on the phone?” “Um, no one.” “Okay, but why were you talking about my date with Jake?” I asked. “No reason. But sweetheart, there is something we need to talk about.” “What?” “Sweetie, you are almost 19 years old… what are you going to do with your life? Are you thinking about any universities?” “No.” “And why not?” “Because I don’t want to go to university.” “Why not?” “Because I want to be a singer mom.” “Sweetheart, being a singer isn’t a steady job.” “Well look at Zayn… he’s doing well.” “I know but still.” “Please mom, just let me try. There is a show in America called The Voice. Auditions are in July in San Francisco. Can I go, and if I don’t make it, I will try so get into some second semester classes?” “Well, I’ve always supported your dreams and you are very talented. I will give you a chance sweetie. But even if you do go on to this show and even win, could you still maybe take the occasional class, just so that you have some experience?” “Okay. Thanks mum. I will start filling out an application for the show tomorrow. Good night mum.” “Good night Riley.”   When I woke up the next morning I heard voices downstairs. One of the voices was my mom and another was my dad, but there were a few other voices that were familiar, but the faces that they belonged to wouldn’t come to mind. I got all dressed and did my hair and makeup and went downstairs. When I walked into the kitchen, four pairs of arms wrapped around me. At first I screamed, but then started to laugh when I opened my eyes to see Liam, Louis, Niall and Harry. “GUYS!? What are you doing here?” I asked, surprised to see them in my kitchen. “We leave to go back on tour tomorrow and we didn’t see you ONCE… so we decided to all fly up to Bradford and spend the day with you.” Harry smiled “H-he didn’t come, right?” I asked, knowing that they knew whom exactly I was talking about. “Nope. We called and asked him to though. Sorry love.” Liam replied “No, I’m actually kinda glad he didn’t come.”  “Why?” Harry asked. “Um, well there was this guy who used to bully Zayn, and he was a real jerk, but when I came home, I ran into him at the airport and I told him what happened and he comforted me…” “Before you carry on, can you please tell me that it is not Jake Carl… because Zayn hates that guy, Jake was horrible to Zayn.” Niall said “Well…” “Riley… are you sure you aren’t dating this boy to get back at Zayn?” Liam asked. “No, and we aren’t even official yet. It was one date. But I had a good time, and you guys can’t expect me to be hung up on Zayn forever.” I argued “Oh come on! Look Riley, I hate Zayn for hurting you and shit, but you shouldn’t date his archenemy.” Louis yelled “That was three years ago Lou! I’m almost 19 years old; I can make my own freaking decisions. I can date whomever I want! You aren’t in charge of me!” Louis opened his mouth to reply, but Liam stopped him, “Look, we are here for 24 hours, I don’t want to spend it with you two fighting. Can we please just go enjoy ourselves?” I let out a huge sigh, “Li is right. I’m sorry Lou, I know you just didn’t want me to get hurt, nor your best mate.” “No problem. I’m sorry too. It’s just that you are like my sister and Zayn is my best friend. Zayn made Jake sound like a huge douche. And I just don’t want you getting hurt, but Zayn does deserve seeing you with his archenemy… maybe it’ll show him that he’d rather be with you.” Louis said as he pulled me in for a hug. “Well I honestly don’t want to be with him anymore.” When I said that, all of the guys faces looked kinda depressed, but Liam quickly changed his expression and we went out.   We spent the day doing all kinds of random stuff. We went shopping, to the arcade, the park, you name it. Around 8PM, we had done almost everything, but Louis suggested one idea, “Let’s go to a bar!” “Sounds good to me.” Harry added “Sure, why not?” I smiled. I’m not a heavy drinker, so I said I would be the designated driver, and if I drank too much, I would get us a cab.    Thank god I didn’t have any really big secrets on my chest, because when I am drunk, I say everything on my mind. As Louis and I were dancing, What Makes You Beautiful came on the speakers. When Zayn’s solo came, I burst into tears. “What is it love?” Louis slurred, a little drunk “I lied.” I replied All of the drunkenness seemed to disappear from Louis, “What did you lie about?” he asked. “I’d rather be with Zayn.”   [A/N] sorry this chapter kinda sucked, it was a bit of a filler. But I do hope you guys liked. Who do you think Riley's mom was on the phone with? The next chapter will skip a head a little and we will learn a little more about Jake and Riley's relationship and *SPOILER ALERT* some drama may be there too ~Kenny Tomlinson <3
