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?


49. You aren't cheating again?


.:~Riley’s PoV~:.


I have been living here with the guys, El and Dani for six months now and I love it. Zayn and I worked basically the same hours, so he would almost always pick me up from work. We all had today off, so Dani and Liam went to the beach, El and Louis went shopping and you, Zayn, Harry and Niall were all just chilling at home.

I was sitting in the living room, trying to write a song for my debut album and the other boys were god knows where. Niall was probably in the kitchen, I think Haz was taking a shower and Zayn was in his room. I quietly strummed my guitar,

It's our original love, 'cause no one gets me like you, I can't get enough 'Cause I light up when I see you, Original love, You're the bee's knees, sweetie, Our own kind of love-”

I was cut off by the doorbell ringing. I stood up and walked to the door,

“Who is it?” I asked

“Delivery for, um, Riley Campbell.”

“Oh yay!” I said, knowing it was probably the rest of my stuff from New Jersey. I opened the door to see a man holding a big box that covered his face,

“Oh here, let me take that.” I said and took the box out of his arms and set it down. Then I looked up at the delivery guy and a huge smile crossed my face,

“Hey Ry Ry!” he said and hugged me.

“What are you going here?” I asked excitedly. Before John could reply, Zayn came down,

“Hey babe who’s at the do- John? What are you doing here man?” Zayn asked happily and went and ‘bro-hugged’ him. I laughed,

“Since when are you two all buddy-buddy?”

“Since he finally caved and let me have you.” Zayn joked and put his arm around me. We all laughed.

“Anyways, I’m here because I got a scholarship to London University.” John said

“Oh that’s awesome!” Zayn said, “Are you busy right now? Riley and I have nothing to do today and we would love to show you around.”

“Yea sure, my classes don’t start until September, so I have nothing to do.”
“Alright, let’s go!” I said

“Oh and Riley?” Zayn called


“Amazing song love. Is it about me?”

“Maybe…” I said cockily and kissed him. We walked hand in hand out the door and drove to into the main part of London.

We showed him Big Ben, some of the malls, and all of the amazing places that you could see here. It was around 3PM and we were hungry, but not so hungry that we wanted a meal. I pointed out a Starbucks.

We all walked in, ordered our drinks and sat down,

“So John, how are you liking London so far?” Zayn asked

“It is an amazing place. I am so happy to be here with you guys, I’m especially glad that you and I don’t hate each other, because that would’ve been awkward.”

We all laughed, “Defiantly.” I said.

We continued to talk and laugh when I got a text from Simon,

<From Simon: Hi Riley, I need you and Zayn to come down to the studio for a meeting. Don’t worry; it’s not anything bad J >

I looked up at Zayn and John,

“Um, Simon needs you and me at the studio for a meeting?”
“Who me?” John asked, a little confused.

“No, Zayn.”

“What is it?” Zayn asked

“I don’t know, but he said it’s nothing bad. We need to go now though. I’m really sorry John. We can continue the tour later. You can head to your apartment and unpack, we will come get you later.”

“Um, okay. Sounds good.”

We all stood up and walked out. Then I noticed Zayn look at something and he froze.

“Zayn, what is it?” I asked. I followed his gaze and saw Perrie walking towards us. When she saw us she froze too. Finally she took a deep breath and walked to us,

“Hi Zayn.”
“Hello Perrie.” Zayn said and he gave her a hug and a kiss on the cheek, “How are you?”

“I’m fine thanks, just going to get a coffee.”
“Oh that’s nice.”

“Yea, um, Zayn could you go get my coffee for me, I’d like to talk to Riley.” She said. I was a little freaked out. I was scared she would flip at me for taking Zayn. I looked over at Zayn and nodded, telling him it was okay to go. He took John with him and once they were both in the Starbucks, Perrie looked at me. I winced, ready for yelling, but was shocked when I felt her arms wrap around me. Reluctantly, I wrapped my arms around her too. Then she finally pulled away and gave me a happy smile,

“As much as it had hurt me to give Zayn up, I have never seen him so happy before you. He really loves you Riley.”

“I really love him.”
“Good. He loves you.”
“Do you still have feelings for him?” I asked, honestly wanting to know.

She laughed, “Well, let me just put it this way; is that other guy you were with single?”

I laughed, “Yup, he his.”
“Then I’m over Zayn.” She joked

Just then, John and Zayn came out. He handed Perrie her drink.

“Well Zayn, we should go, but John, Perrie here offered to continue to give you a tour.” I said, looking at Perrie. Her face lit up,

“Yea! I’d love to finish showing you around.”

John smiled, “Okay, let’s go.”

They walked off and Zayn and I walked to our car. We drove to the studio, and all Simon had to say was that he wants us to do a duet and he talked about the 2014 Grammys, even though they were over six months away. Once we finished, we headed back to the town square where we told John and Perrie we would meet them. We looked around and when I finally saw them I smiled and tapped Zayn on the shoulder, then pointed to John and Perrie making out in the middle of the square. Zayn smiled,

“I have to say they do look good together.”
“Yea, the minute you two walked back into Starbucks, she told me she thought he was cute.”

We walked up to them,

“Well excuse me for interrupting your little… whatever this is, but Zayn and I are going to head home.” I said, making them pull apart, “Are you two going to hang out here for a while?”

They looked at each other and intertwined hands,

“Yea. I think I might take Perrie here out to dinner.” John replied happily.

“Okay then, we will just leave you to it then. Let’s go babe.” Zayn said and we walked home hand in hand.

When we got home, we heard everyone talking inside and like me; Zayn didn’t want our alone time to end.

“Do you want to go sit in the park?” he asked

“Sure.” I said. Zayn grabbed my hand and led me across the street to the park. We sat down on a little bench swing,

“Is everything alright Zayn?” I asked, as he had been acting kind of weird all day.

“Yea, I just have a question for you.”
“Yea Zayn?” I asked, wondering what it could possibly be.

“I’m going back to Bradford in two months, can you get off work and come with me?”

“Um, yea, of course I can.”
“Good.” Zayn said happily and sat back in the chair.

I was really confused, but he seemed very pleased that I had agreed to this trip, so I was happy too,

“Riley, I love you more than anything, and I really hope you know that.”

“You aren’t cheating on me again, right?” I joked

“No, I never would ever again.” He replied seriously with a hint of a smirk on his face.

“Good, and I love you too.” I said and we shared a long kiss.
