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?


25. You really have matured


.:~Riley’s PoV~:.


“Jake?” I said, a little shocked, what was he doing here.

“Hey.” He said kinda shyly. He looked so grown up and mature after a year and a half.

“What are you doing here?”

“Well my family was just on vacation in New Zealand for two weeks. I had school so I stayed home, but I finished yesterday so I am here picking up my family at the airport.”
“Ah cool.”

“Yea, what about you?”

“Um, I am moving back to Doncaster.”

“Oh yea, I had heard you moved away. Is pretty-boy here to pick you up?”

When he said that, I could instantly feel my expression drop… and Jake noticed,

“Oh… you guys, um…”
“Yea. We-we broke up.” I stuttered

“Do you mind me asking what happened?”

“Um, well he auditioned for XFactor and got really far. I came to surprise him and instead I caught him with someone else.” I said and felt the tears streaming down my face. Then Jake did something I never thought he’d do… he hugged me, and I hugged him back. He stroked my hair with his hand and whispered in my ear,

“Look, I know you and I never really got along, but I do know how much you loved him. I’m so sorry it didn’t work out, but I do know that if I were him, I would’ve never let you go.” He said, looking me dead in the eye. I knew he was serious. The next thing I knew, he was slowly leaning in, and unlike that time in eighth grade, so was I. Once our lips finally pulled away, I looked up at Jake,

“I’m sorry.”
“For what?”
“I’m not sure if I kissed you out of spite for Zayn or because I actually wanted to.”

“Well I really want to be with you. So I will wait, and if you ever need me, I will be at my house with a shoulder to cry on.”
“Thanks Jake, you really have matured.”

“I only ever acted so dumb and stupid because I liked you.”

Before I could respond, my parents called me over. I looked up at Jake, gave him a smile and walked away

“Yes silly! I came here to surprise you!” she said

“I thought you were busy with Little Mix?”

“I was. But I love New York and I knew you were here. Plus you have next week off and because your family will be in Africa next week, you don’t need to head back to Bradford, so I thought we could go to Florida or something like that for a week.”

I wanted to go back to Bradford for Rylie, but I can’t tell Perrie that.

“Um, well I can’t see a reason why not.”

“Awesome!” she said happily, “Well how about tonight we go out for dinner?”

“Sounds good.” I replied

“Well I am going to go back to my hotel, maybe do a little shopping and whatever. I’m staying at the Sheraton, room 637. Pick me up at 7:30.”

“Okay doll.”
“Bye Zayn.” Perrie said and she gave me a kiss on the cheek

“Bye Perrie.” I said and once she was out of hearing range, I let out a huge sigh and trudged upstairs to my room. When I walked in, Louis was hanging up the phone.

“Who were you on the phone with?” I asked

“Um, Rylie.”

“Oh wow, you and Riley talk a lot, is there something going on between you two?”

“Well Zayn, now that you are bringing it up…” Lou started. I instantly started to freak out and Lou could see that, because he instantly burst into laughter,

“Man chill, I’m just kidding! She is like my best friend, my sister. She’s always gonna be yours man.”

“Oh shit bro, you scared me.” I replied

“Okay… seriously Zayn, you gotta make a choice now. Because doing this isn’t fair to Perrie.”

“What isn’t fair to Perrie?”
“Perrie is your girlfriend, yet when she isn’t around, you always talk about Riley and how much you love her.”
“I know. I just don’t know. I want to be with Riley, but if she has moved on, then I don’t want to hurt Perrie.”

“Well I guess you will figure it out when you fly out to Bradford in two days. She will pick you up at the airport at 8AM England ti-”


“When I called Riley, I told her you had gone to New Jersey to see her and that when you weren’t there, you planned on going to Bradford. She wants to fix things too.”
“Louis, I’m not going to Bradford for our week off.”
“Wait… what?”

“I’m not going back to Bradford… because my parents are in Africa, so according to Perrie, who doesn’t know about Riley, I don’t need to go back to Bradford so instead we are going to Florida.”

Louis all of a sudden looked pretty angry, “Seriously man? You are going to blow off Riley, the girl of your dreams, because of Perrie, just so that you won’t hurt her?”

“Why do you care so much?”

“Because Lottie doesn’t let me in, so I don’t have a sister to stick up for. Lottie and I are more like friends than family, but Riley is my family, and I’m going to be there for her. And didn’t you promise Tyler that you would always be there for her? Well, here you are breaking a promise to someone who is no longer alive. I really thought you loved Riley more than that.”

“Louis, I know Riley is like your sister, and that you would beat the shit out of me for hurting her, but I’m sorry man.”

All Louis did was give me a dirty look and say, “Have fun in Florida. See you when the rest of us get home from the UK after visiting our friends and families.” And he stormed off into his room.
