I am now working on two High School Musical stories. So updates on this and Lost Your Mind could come a little slow, but I like this idea. So here we go.
"Gabi!" Troy ran off the stage, toward his girlfriend. Gabriella, clad in her graduation robes, rushed into his arms and grinned into his shoulder as he spun her around.
"Yay." She laughed as he set her down. "I am so excited! I can't believe we got into the same college!"
"I know! And who knew I'd get into Harvard? I mean, a dummy like me?"
"Oh, shut up, Troy!" Gabriella playfully hit her boyfriend on the chest. Then she reached out and gave him another hug. "I'm so proud of you. Really."
"You too." Troy gave Gabriella a quick kiss, then began to walk with her. "I really wish my parents could have been here, though." He frowned. "Where do you think they are, anyway? I mean… they were supposed to come."
"I don't know. They're fine, though. Don't worry."
"Yeah. You're right."
Hand in hand, the happy couple walked over to their friends and Gabriella's mom. Everybody hugged, and then began to talk and laugh.
About a half hour later, Chad was telling a hilarious story that had everyone doubled over with laughter. He began to add onto it, but stopped short.
"Um… Troy? Isn't that Nicole?"
"Nicole?" Troy turned around and was shocked to see that his ten year old sister was walking beside a solemn-looking police officer.
"Troy Bolton?" yelled the officer. "Where is Troy Bolton?"
"That's me!" shouted Troy, waving an arm above his head.
Nicole turned her head, and Troy saw that her face was tear stained. She left the police officer's side and ran to her older brother, flinging herself into his arms.
"Nicole… Nicole, what's happened?" he asked, returning everybody's confused stares. As the policeman came over to them, Troy said, "Sir? Sir, what's wrong?"
"It's Mom and Dad," sobbed Nicole, her voice muffled by Troy's shirt. "They… they…"
"There was a car wreck," cut in the cop. "They're in the hospital, barely hanging on."
Ooh, cliffy. Sorry. The more reviews I get, though, the more likely I am to update soon!!
