20. Tell him I love him


Loved You First ~ Ch. XVI


.:~Riley’s PoV~:.


I got off the plane at 3PM, which meant it was nine pm in England, so the boys would’ve just finished their performance. Only moments after I turned on my phone, it rang. I was hesitant, wondering who was calling, but I decided to pick up,

“Hello?” I asked hesitantly
“Riley, it’s me…” The voice on the other line said. It was Zayn. I was about to hang up, but he stopped me by saying “please don’t hang up.”

“What do you want Zayn?” I asked, a little agitated.

“I know I haven’t tried to call. I just thought you wanted you space to cool down.”

“I wanted you to fight for me. I wanted you to prove to me that you still love me.” I said almost in tears

“I do still love you.” When he said that, I wanted to forgive him, but I knew I shouldn’t, so all I said was,

“I gotta go Zayn. I’m sorry.”

“Wait… please… all I want is you. Do you still love me?” he begged

I replied to him honestly “Yeah.”

“Can you give me another chance?”

I thought about it. I want to give him another chance, but then again, I’m all the way in New Jersey. My head was saying don’t do it, let him go. My heart, on the other hand, was saying that I only want to be with him. He needed an answer now; I had no time to think about it,


And I hung up the phone. I couldn’t hold the tears back anymore. As I walked through the airport, I was bawling. Then I heard a familiar voice call my name,


I looked up to see John. He was smiling for a split second, but when he saw that I had been crying. He came up to me and gave me a bear hug. Reminds me of Niall’s hugs.

“What happened?” he asked stroking my hair, “Your parents said you were coming here to stay and I wanted to pick you up, but they didn’t say there was a problem. Was it Zayn?”

All I could do was nod against his chest. John’s grip tightened around me,

“I am going to kill him dead if I ever catch him in this town.”

I couldn’t help but laugh a little.

“What did he do?”
“He cheated on me with some skimpy little redhead named Marlee.”

“Oh.” John said, seeming speechless, “Well lets go home and do something fun, get your mind of things. What do you want to do?” he asked, returning to his happy sound.

“Let’s go to a hair salon.” I said, remembering what I had said to Zayn the night we started going out.

“Why?” he asked laughing.

“Because it’ll help me admit to myself that it is over.”

“By going to a hair salon?”

“I told Zayn when we started going out that I would wash out my dye and let my hair be brown again when I knew him and I were officially over.”

“Ohhhhh. Well then, let’s go to a hair salon.” John said as he grabbed my hand and pulled me out of the airport


When my hair went back to it’s normal color, I almost didn’t recognize myself. I preferred it blonde though, but I had to make it brown, so I left a few blonde streaks in my hair. I actually was feeling better.

When John finally brought me home and gave me a kiss on the cheek goodbye, the tears came back. I miss Zayn and I want him back. I couldn’t fight it anymore; I sat diwn on my cold front steps, picked up my phone and dialed his number. It rang twice then someone picked up,

“Riley? Why are you calling him… at two in the morning?” It was Harry

“Haz? Why are you answering Zayn’s phone?”
“Because Zayn is sleeping. Why are you calling him?”

“Because I want him back. I miss him… I know he fucked up, but I still love him.”

“Look Ry, you two need some space. He is devastated about what happened, yea, but he does need to learn that there are consequences. You can’t just run back to him.”
“But I love him.”
“And he loves you. That’s why he let you go. You need to let him go too, give him time to think about what he did.”
“You’re right.”

“Yea, now I need to sleep. Bye Riley.”
“Bye Harry… wait… Harry?”
“I watched you guys on YouTube tonight. You were amazing.”
“Thanks babe. Love you.”
“Love you too Harry. A little later down the road… tell Zayn that at this moment, I did love him.”
“Will do.”

I hung up then walked into the house. My parents weren’t home yet, so I walked up to my room and slammed the door, lay on my bed and cried myself to sleep.
