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?


50. You won't, I promise


.:~Eleanor’s PoV~:.

Riley and Zayn had just gotten home, told us about John and Perrie. I was pretty shocked, but they’ve only known each other for for a few hours, so who knows what’ll happen. Just then, Zayn asked all the guys to meet him in the kitchen. They all went in, and I turned to Riley and Dani,

“So what do you think they are talking about in there?”
“Who knows? Did something happen with you and Zayn, Riley?” Dani asked

“Um, not really. He asked me if I wanted to go home to Bradford with him in two months, which I found kinda weird that he was planning so far ahead, but I’m not really bugging about it.”

“Ohhhhhh.” Danielle and I said in union, looking at one another. Just then the guys walked back out,


.:~Riley’s PoV~:.

“Hey girls, we have to head to the arena now. We will see you at the concert in an hour.” Louis said and he gave El a quick kiss. I had totally forgot about the concert tonight. The guys left and the rest of us went to get ready.

“I’m going to hop in the shower!” Eleanor yelled from the bathroom. A smile crossed Dani’s face. We heard the water turn on and Eleanor get in. Then all of a sudden, Dani pulled me into my room,

“I have something I HAVE to tell you, but you can’t say anything.” She said happily, as if she was about to let a huge secret off her chest.

“What is it?” I asked, sharing her excitement even though I didn’t know what it was.

“Tonight… at the concert, during Louis’ solo for Back For You, he is going to pull El up on stage and when it’s over… Louis is going to propose.” Dani cheered, but not so loudly that El could hear.

“OH MY GOD SERIOUSLY!?” I yell whispered


I gave Dani a big hug.

“This is going to be amazing. But you can’t tell Eleanor.”
“I won’t. Now let’s get ready.”


**At the Concert**

The music for Back For You came on. Dani and I started silently freaking out. When Louis solo came on, he came and grabbed Eleanor and signaled for us to follow. We ran onstage. When Louis solo finished, the music continued to play, and Zayn, Niall, Liam and Harry were singing quietly as Louis lead Eleanor to the front of the stage. When he got down on one knee, Eleanor threw her hands over her mouth and Louis spoke into the mic,

“El, I love you so much and thanks to Riley here, I got the courage to show you that love, and now I want to show it even more. Everytime I’m away, I’m promise I’ll come back for you. But to make sure you know that I am always thinking about you, will you marry me?”


**Two months later**
I loved thinking about that moment. Lou the crazy, immature, 5-year-old-trapped-in-a-21-year-old’s-body had been so kind and grown up at that moment, I wasn’t surprised she said yes. They didn’t want to plan a big wedding, it wasn’t their style. So, believe it or not, in a month and a half, they planed a simple yet perfect wedding and they were currently on their honeymoon in New Zealand.

As for Zayn and I, we were driving to Bradford for the weekend and he seemed nervous. It was really weird, but I just brushed it off my shoulder.

When we arrived, Zayn dropped me off at my house so I could spend some time with my parents and he could spend some time with his.

I ate dinner with my family, and they seemed a little odd too. After dinner, I decided to go see Tyler. When I pulled up at the cemetery, I walked over to his tombstone and sat down,

“Hey Ty. I’m sorry I haven’t come to visit you in, I don’t know, almost two years. A lot has been going on. Zayn and I are together, just like you told Jake. I’m also a big celeb now.”
I continued to tell Tyler the events of the past two years; the only response I ever got was silence. When I finished, I went home and straight to bed, because I was really tired.

When I woke up in the morning, I had a text message on my phone from Zayn,

<From My Bradford Bad Boy <3: Hey baby, meet me at our primary school>

I smiled at the text. It has been more than seven years since I’ve been there. I looked at the date, September 14, 2013. It has been around 13 years since I met Zayn. A lot has happened in those years, and I wouldn’t change a single one of them. That boy is my world, and I really hope him and I will be together forever.

I got all ready and drove to the school. It was a Saturday, so no students were there, but a few teachers were. I looked around the front for Zayn when someone called my name,

“Riley? Riley Campbell?”

I looked to my left and saw my third grade teacher, Mrs. Gavins

“Oh my god! Mrs. Gavins? How are you?” I said cheerfully as I gave her a hug.

“I’m fine thanks love. My husband, children and I watched you all the time on the Voice. We were so proud of you when you won. And when you and Zayn kissed, I almost cried, because I always knew you two would end up together… you are still together, right?”

“Yes of course.”
“Good, because he told me if I saw you, he told me to tell you he is at the playground.”

“Oh, well then I should go see him. It was very nice to see you Mrs. G.”

“It was nice to see you too Riley.”

I smiled and walked over to the playground. I couldn’t see Zayn, but I did notice a familiar shadow coming from underneath the slide. I smiled, walked over and crouched down beside him. He didn’t notice me, so I placed my hand on his back. He jumped,

“It’s okay, I’m not going to hurt you.” I said, quoting what I had said to him around thirteen years ago today. Zayn looked at me and smiled, obviously remembering what I had said all those years ago.

“Hey babe.” Zayn said and kissed me.

“Hey. Why did you want me to meet you here?” I asked

“Well, remember when we were 11?”

“Remember how we were talking about how I would propose to someone? I said I would want to propose to her in the exact spot I met her?”

“I remember.” I said smiling, knowing what was coming up.

“Well, around 13 years ago today, a really nice eight year old girl came up and asked me to be her friend, right in this very spot… her and I became the best of friends and at that time, I didn’t know that girl would be the love of my life. Riley, I’ve known from the moment I first saw you with Sean, that you are the woman I want to spend everyday of the rest of my life with.” He said, I could see the happy tears forming in the corners of his eyes, “So, Riley Jessica Campbell, best friend, faithful companion, love of my life, will you marry me?”

I felt happy tears streaming down my cheeks as I nodded, “Of course Zayn. There is no one else I would rather be with.”

The biggest smile I have ever seen crossed his face, “Really?”
“Yes you idiot.” I said. He placed the ring on my finger and we shared a long kiss under the slide. When I was eight years old, I never would have imagined this.

“I love you so much Riley. I don’t want to lose you ever again.” Zayn cried as he hugged me,

“Don’t worry Zayn, you won’t. I promise.”
