Thanks for reviews! Here is the last chapter! Let me just tell you that the musical is about two people who fall in love and it's the start of something new for both of them. I'm not going to show them in the musical. Just the song.
Troy woke up at 12:00 p.m. He couldn't believe he slept in that late. Yes! No school today! Wait - it's the musical. With Sharpay. He didn't know if he should be mad a Gabriella. I mean, she should come to watch him, unless she really does have a cold. He had to be at East High at 3:00. The Musical was at 4:30, so everyone would have time to get ready. He got up and took a shower, then got in his sweats to practice some basketball. He practiced for about 2 hours. Then he and his parents went out to lunch.
"I know you'll do great, Troy." His mom said.
"Yeah, we're very proud of you, even if it's not about basketball." His dad told him.
"Thanks. It won't be as fun though, since Gabriella won't be in it." Troy said.
"Oh. I'm sure it'll be great. We can't wait to come and see it." Mrs. Bolton said to her son.
Then the food came and they all ate. Troy couldn't stop thinking about Gabriella and Sharpay. This whole situation is making him sick. At least his girlfriend wasn't breaking up with him over it.
Gabriella was having a really hard time deciding whether she should go to the musical. Of course she wanted to go but something in her was holding her back. It was like she had two sides of her.
Side 1: You should go. Troy is your boyfriend.
Side 2: Do you want to see Troy kiss another girl? You shouldn't go.
Side 1: Who cares? He would do it for you.
Side 2: No, he wouldn't. Do you think he wants to see his girlfriend kiss another guy?
Side 1: Gabriella, you'll look like a wimp if you don't go. Be strong.
Side 2: Don't listen to Side 1, Gabriella. You're just going to run out, crying. Better to save tears when your not there. Less embarrassing.
"Uuuugggghhhh! Leave me alone!" Gabriella shouted.
"Honey, are you okay?" Gabriella's mom came into her room.
"No! I'm not." Gabriella put her head into her pillow.
"What's going on? Is this about Troy?" Her mom asked. Gabriella nodded.
"Honey, It's not your fault, that you broke your foot."
"I know, but I suddenly feel bad for Troy. I mean, if the bike rider didn't hit me then he wouldn't have to kiss Sharpay." Gabriella said, feeling guilty. "I feel like it's my fault."
"Yeah, but you know it's not." Her mom said hugging her. "Are you going to go anyway?"
Gabriella hadn't really decided yet. She thought about it.
"No. I don't think I feel well." She said grasping he throat.
"Okay. Well, you should get some rest. I have to go to work, so call me on my cell phone if you need anything." Her mom kissed her forehead and left her in bed, all alone.
It was 2:45. Troy's mom gave him a ride to the school.
"I'll be back with your dad in time for the musical, okay?" His mom said.
"Yeah." He shut the car door and started walking up to school. It was so deserted. It was creepy being at school, when there was no school. He did see a few people around the halls. Costume designers, set designers, and more people in the musical.
"Troy!" Kelsi yelled to him. He started walking towards her.
"If your looking for your dressing room, it's over there." She pointed down the hall.
"Thanks." He started walking down the hall. Before he could open the door, Sharpay appeared outside of her dressing room.
"Are you nervous at all?" Sharpay asked.
"A little." He was about to open his door.
"Me too. I'm mostly excited though." She smiled.
"Yeah." He walked into his dressing room. There was a rack of clothing, a makeup stand, and a table with some fruits and a complimentary water bottle. 'This school must be rich.' Thought Troy. He got dressed and since he had about a half an hour until it started, he decided to eat some fruit and drink out of the water bottle. After all it was free. He called Gabriella.
"Hello?" She answered.
"Hey!" He said.
"Oh, hi. What are you doing?" She asked him.
"I'm in my dressing room, eating free stuff." They both laughed.
"So are you coming?" A sound of hope in his voice.
"No. I'm sorry, Troy. I just don't feel well." She sighed.
"Oh. Okay." He was truly sad. "Well, I have to go. I'll be on soon, so I have to get ready some more." He said.
"Okay. Bye. I love you." She told him, but there was just a dial tone at the other end. Gabriella felt really bad that she wouldn't come but it was for the best.
Before Troy knew it, it was time to go on. The lights turned on, on the stage and Sharpay and him were on.
Gabriella lay on her bed, staring at the ceiling. She looked at the time. 4:37. It started. Suddenly her phone rang. Who could that be?
"Hello?" She answered.
"Gabriella? Are you coming?" It was Taylor.
"No. I'm sick." She said.
"Oh. Well, me and Chad are going so if you change your mind, find us there in the audience, okay?" Taylor asked.
"Yeah. I will." She coughed.
"You know, Troy is really hurting that you're not coming."
"Yeah. Well I'm in the bathroom, so I have to get back to the musical. Bye." They hung up. Gabriella tried to fall asleep after that but she couldn't. Soon she did though. She fell into a dream.
"Sharpay Evans, do you take this man as your husband? To honor and to hold, till' death do you part?"
"I do." Sharpay said sternly.
"Troy Bolton, do you take this woman to be your wife? To honor and to hold, till' death do you part?"
"I do." Troy said, looking into Sharpay's eyes.
"You may kiss the bride." Troy and Sharpay leaned in.
"Noooooo!" Gabriella screamed but they didn't hear. They broke apart. Everyone in the audience was applauding.
"Don't they make a great couple?" Her mom said to her in the front row. Gabriella couldn't believe what was happening.
"Troy, how could you get married to her? I thought you loved me!" Gabriella screamed.
"You couldn't make the musical, so I love Sharpay now." Troy said as Sharpay and him got into a car that said, 'Just Married!' They we're laughing and giggling.
Gabriella woke up, sweating and panting.
"I can't let that happen!" She said to herself. She looked at the clock. It was 5:20 p.m. It ended at 5:35. She quickly got up and got dressed. If only her foot wasn't broken. This would be much easier. She pulled on a light blue sweat suit and pulled her hair in a ponytail. She left the house on her crutches. She was walking and she was tired. A car pulled up next to her.
"Gabriella?" The person rolled their window down.
"Mr. Bolton?" She was confused.
"Are you heading down to the school?" He asked her. She nodded.
"Get in. I'll take you there." She hopped into his car and they were on their way. She was so happy she didn't have to walk that whole way.
"I thought you were at the musical?" Gabriella said.
"I had to run home and get the camera. I can't believe I forgot it. I have good timing." They both laughed.
When they got there, she got out of the car, and hopped up the stairs to the school. She stood in the hallway. She almost forgot where the auditorium was. She had to stop that kiss. She could hear them singing.
"... And now, looking in your eyes,..." Gabriella had to get backstage. She was hopping the fastest she's ever hopped. She burst through the backstage doors.
"...I feel in my heart..."
"Gabriella? What are you doing here?" Kelsi was surprised. Gabriella ignored her. She had to get to the main doors to the stage.
"The Start Of Something New..." She could hear them both sing in unison. What if they kissed and she said no and they didn't hear her. It would be like in her dream. Troy looked into Sharpay's eyes and they both leaned in and touched lips.
"Wait! Stop!" Gabriella yelled. The couple broke apart and looked over at Gabriella.
"What are you doing here?" Troy asked her, puzzled.
"Yeah, what are you doing here?" Sharpay screamed.
"I had to stop you guys from kissing. Troy, I lied. I'm not sick. I just didn't want to see you guys here, together. I had a dream that you were getting married and you basically told me I was too late because I didn't come." She looked at him. He came up to her.
"That would never happen." He kissed Gabriella on the lips. The audience was applauding. They obviously thought that this was part of the musical.
Sharpay screamed and stormed off.
After everybody left, Troy and Gabriella were in his dressing room.
"Are you going to come to the after party dinner with me?" Troy asked her.
"Yeah, sure why not. I'm going to wait in the hall for you." She said, since Troy had to take his musical clothes and put on regular ones.
Gabriella walked out of his room, into the school hallway. It was empty. She then saw Sharpay huddled up in the corner, whimpering. Gabriella felt bad so she went over to her.
"I'm really sorry. I didn't mean for you to get so upset."
"Yes you did. Theater is the only thing that I'm really good at. It's my passion and you ruined it." She was sobbing.
"I didn't mean to ruin it. Well I did but that's because I'm jealous of you. It seems like you get everything you want. Nice clothes, money, and boys." Gabriella said to her.
"Well that's not true. I'm jealous of you. You have everything." Sharpay said.
"So this whole time, we've been jealous of each other when we could have been friends." Gabriella said.
"I guess. I've never thought of it like that." They both smiled.
"Friends?" Gabriella asked.
"Friends." Sharpay said.
"So are you coming to the after party dinner?" Gabriella asked.
"Yeah, are you coming?"
"Yeah. You know, you were really good tonight." Gabriella said.
"Thanks." They hugged.
"Are you guys ready to go to dinner?" Troy asked coming out of his dressing room. They smiled.
"Yeah." They all walked out of the building to dinner with everybody else.
During dinner, everybody talked and laughed.
"I didn't know you were in the script, Gabriella." Chad laughed.
Sharpay pulled Troy aside.
"Troy, I'm really, really sorry." She said.
"Me too, but you know that were just friends now. Middle School is over." He said.
"I know. I was trying to be Gabriella and I know that's something I shouldn't have done."
"You should always be yourself. Once somebody gets to know you, you really are a nice person. You just come on a little strong." Troy said.
"Thanks Troy." They hugged and sat back down for dinner.
After dinner, Troy and Gabriella were outside her house.
"I'm glad you came." They both laughed of how she came in an odd way.
"Me too." She smiled.
"I want you to know that there is only one person for me." He said softly.
"Yep. And that's you."
