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?


24. Thank you... John


Loved You First ~ Ch. XX


.:~Zayn’s PoV~:.


As soon as I arrived at Riley’s house, I paid the cab driver and jumped out of the car. I ran up quickly to her door, knocked and waited…

And waited…

And waited…

I peeked through the window of the house and it kinda looked like no one lived there. But I was 100% sure this was Riley’s house, so I continued to knock until a voice stopped me,

“They aren’t home.”

I turned around to talk to the guy, but no words came out when I realized who it was. John.

His facial expression was the same as mine, complete and other shock. Him and I have been enemies without even knowing each other.

“What the hell are you doing here?” he asked coldly.

“I’m here to see Riley.” I responded in the same tone

“Well she is gone, and she isn’t coming back.”

“Where did she go?”
“Why do you care?” he replied coldly, “You cheated on her and left her all alone when she needed you most. She’s a lot better off without you, so just leave her alone.” he said and gave me a dirty look then started to walk away. Being cold to him wasn’t going to help. I ran up to him,

“I hate myself for what I did to her and I wouldn’t be surprised if you wanted to punch me right now.” I said and soon enough, I was doubled over in pain, “shit.” I mumbled. I looked up at John, who shrugged,

“Sorry man, I did want to punch you for hurting her. But may I say, you sure got some abs, that kinda hurt my hand.” He laughed, but then the tone got serious, “Anyways…”

“Look, I know I did all those things and I know she is better off without me, but right now, I’m trying desperately to fix things with her. I know you love her and want to be with her, but can you just tell me where she went?”

John sighed, “You sure do love her, don’t you?”

“More than anything. She is my world. But I know she is with you… so all I want to do is apologize to her.” I said sadly

“When she kissed me,” John started, “I looked into her eyes and saw that she didn’t love me, she loved you… and she still does.”

“So will you tell me where she is?”

“Promise me you will never hurt her again?”

“I would die before I did that.”

“Zayn, as I’m sure you know, when Louis Tomlinson was here, she told him that her family would be returning to Bradford when Riley’s grandma passed… well about two months ago, right after you started your tour, she passed away and last month they moved back to Bradford.”
I was a little dumbstruck… I never thought she would go back. I had a break off of my tour next week. I could go home and go talk to her, plus I could spend all my time with her, because my parents will be in Africa.

“Thank you John.” I said

“No problem… you should probably get back to New York now.”

“Yea. I’ll see you around.” I said and called a cab, which pulled up a few minutes later.


When I got back to the hotel, I bumped into Louis,

“Hey, how’d it go?” he asked, seeming a little nervous

“She isn’t there, she moved back to Bradford. When we are off next week, I’m going home to fix things.” I said happily. Louis looked a little upset, as if he was sorry for me,

“What is it Lou?” I asked

“Look, please don’t take this the wrong way, but I was kind of hoping she would horribly reject you. Not because I don’t want you two to end up together. I do, it’s just-”

Louis was cut off by a familiar high-pitched voice,

“ZAYN! There you are! I was wondering where you were. SURPRISE I’M HERE!”

I was in total shock. When I felt her arms wrap around me, all I managed to say was,
