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?


14. This is a Life Line


.:~Riley’s PoV~:.


I go home in three days and I can’t wait, but I do have to admit that I am really going to miss John, Russell, Alyssa, Andrew, Nikki, Mary-Kate, Matt and Patrick. We took pictures everyday and posted them on Facebook so we would always have memories. We all get along so well and it is nice to for once have more than one friend, but then again I would pick Zayn over all of them any day.  I was so excited to see him again and I wondered what his surprise was. There is only one problem though; I haven’t gotten any word from Zayn in two weeks. I couldn’t help but wonder if it was because of all the pictures. I think that because in most of them, John’s arm is around me, or something like that. I decided to send Zayn a quick message,

‘Hey Zayn. I haven’t heard from you in a few weeks and I just want to know… is everything all right? You won’t answer any of my calls, messages, tweets or emails and I’m a little worried. Anyways, I’ll be home in three days, we can talk then. I love you and I hope you know that. –Ry’

Then I hit send. My parents were at a meeting so I was home all-alone. I sat around for a while, looking at pictures when there was a knock on my door. I ran downstairs and opened it to see John.

“Oh hey John! What’s up?”

“I was wondering if you wanted to hang out?”

“Um, sure. Are we going to meet the others?”

“Um, no, just you and me… if that’s okay with you.” He stuttered.

“Sure. I guess I kinda like hanging out with you.” I joked. He laughed then we went out. We were sitting on a dock in the harbor eating bagels from the bakery. We were sitting in silence for awhile, then John broke it,

“So, are you excited to see Zayn?”
“Yes. I haven’t heard from him in a while so I’m worried.”

“Yea. I’m really scared. He promised to call or message me every day and I haven’t heard from him in weeks. What if he has met someone else and is ignoring me so he doesn’t have to tell me?”
“Well then, if that is true, which I doubt it is, then he is letting go of something pretty amazing.”

“Thanks John, you are the best.” I whispered, turning to him. The next thing I knew he pressed his lips against mine. I was about to kiss him back, but then I stopped myself and pulled away,

“John, I’m sorry.”

“No, I am. I know you really love this Zayn guy and I really hope he never hurts you. If he ever does I will kick his sorry ass.”
“Thank you.” I said sincerely.

“Well I should go. I’m heading to Orlando tomorrow, so I won’t see you for a while. When will you be back?”

I did the quick math in my head; “I will be back for a week in September.”

“Okay, cool. I’ll see you then.” He smiled. I stood up and gave him a hug and a small kiss on the cheek.

“See you then.” I replied

All those pictures drove me nuts. I mean, I know they shouldn’t, because I trust Riley, but I don’t trust John… at all. They way he looks at her in all those pictures, it’s just, it’s the way I look at her.

Today we would find out who would continue on to the Judges’ Houses. I was so nervous as we all walked on stage. There were lots of people on this stage who were more talented then I.

Simon started to call names and every time my name wasn’t called, my heart dropped more and more.

“And the final person to make it to the judges’ house is…” my heart dropped. My name wasn’t called. I was done. I walked off stage feeling like I was about to cry. But Riley will be home soon and if she still loves me, I will be happy again.


I was just about to leave when I heard someone call,

“Can Niall Horan, Liam Payne, Harry Styles, Louis Tomlinson and Zayn Malik please follow me?”

I followed the man along with the four other boys who must be Niall, Liam, Harry and Louis. When we walked on stage, a group of girls were coming on from the other side,

“Hello.” Nicole said

“Heyyy.” We all said sadly, we were all still crying too

“Thank you so much for coming back,” Nicole carried on, “I know that, judging by some of your faces that this is really hard. We’ve thought long and hard about it and thought of each of you as individuals.”
I was freaking out, like everyone else probably was, wondering what Nicole has to say.

“We just feel you are too talented to let go of.” She said with a smile.

My eyes went wide. I can’t believe it.

“We think it would be a great idea… to have two separate groups.”

We all stood there, dumbstruck. Nicole handed the microphone to Simon and he held it up to his mouth to speak,

“We have decided to put you through.”

I freaked out and so did the rest of the lads. Simon and Nicole smiled. The lads and I group hugged, which was funny because we still didn’t know each other’s names. Then we all pulled away when Simon started to talk,

“This is a life line people. You now need to practice 10, 12, 14 hours a day and take this opportunity… you got a real shot here guys.”

We walked off stage, freaking out. Then we all turned to each other,

“Well,” the one with the curly hair said, “We should probably all get to know each other a little.”
“That’d be smart.” The Irish one said, “I’m Niall Horan, I’m 16 and I am from Mullingar, Ireland.”

“I’m Liam Payne, I’m 16 and I’m from Wolverhampton.” Said the blonde/brunette with brown eyes

“Oh yea, I remember, you were on the show in 2008. My friend and I loved you.” I said.

“Thank you.” He replied

“Anyways, I’m Zayn Malik, I’m 17 and I’m from Bradford.”

“Hello Zayn. I’m Louis “The Tommo” Tomlinson. I’m 18 and I’m from Doncaster.” Said the brunette with blue eyes.

“Well I guess that makes me Harry. I’m 16 and I’m from a little town called Holmes Chappel.”

“Oh yea, I met you in the bathroom!” Louis laughed. We continued to talk and get to know each other better. I had a very strong feeling that the five of us would get along just fine.
