Chapter 4 (The Relationship)
Troy got home and called Gabriella to tell her the good news. She was so happy. So Troy asked her to go out for dinner in a fancy Italian restaurant called Molto Bella. Troy was going to pick her up in 1 hour at 8:00. After they hung up Troy got ready he put on nice black pants and a baby blue button down shirt. He jelled his hair perfectly and ran around the room. He didn't know why but he was really nervous, it wasn't like he never went out with her before.
Back at Gabriella's home she was getting dressed to, she put on a knee length dress that was light pink, it was strapless and had a beautiful flower design right across the top of the dress and on the bottom. Unlike Troy she wasn't nervous at all, she was excited and couldn't wait. She put her make-up on and did her hair in a beautiful bun. She waited around for Troy to pick her up then.
He arrived at exactly 8:00 and honked the horn and she ran out.
She smiled and said "Hi, this is so great."
Troy kissed her on the cheek as she sat down and said "Hey, I know right."
"Yeah, lets go I am starving."
Troy laughed and said "Alright." He then pulled out of her driveway and drove to the restaurant. When they got there the table was ready right away.
They sat down and the woman that brought them to the table said "Your waiter tonight will be Chloe, she will be out in a minute."
"Ok, thanks." Gabriella said softly.
Chloe walked over and said "What can I..." She paused and looked at Troy and screamed "Troy! Its me Chloe your old girlfriend."
"Um yeah, hi Chloe, sorry I am here on a date with my girlfriend." Gabriella gave Chloe a dirty look and just listened to the conversation.
Chloe snapped "Excuse me, your suppose to be with me."
"Actually, I broke up with you last summer because you were a snotty..." Troy couldn't find the word he was looking for.
Chloe said "snotty what, a brat."
"Yeah, being nice that is." Troy said frustrated.
Gabriella asked "What is going on Troy?"
"Look Chloe was my old girlfriend, I broke up with her over the summer, before I met you because she was mean, I am over her, but apparently she's not over me." Troy said as he tried to calm down. Gabriella was still confused.
"What? I can't believe you, just moving on so quickly, you were suppose to be disappointed and come back for me." Chloe yelled. The whole restaurant was now staring and Chloe said "Forget it, what can I get you to drink?"
Gabriella spoke nervously "just water."
"I will have a coke." Troy said still very mad. Chloe walked away.
"Look, I am not mad, I couldn't expect you to have no other girlfriends in your life." Gabriella said before Troy could even open his mouth.
"Ok, I am really sorry, I promise I will take you out to dinner another night to a different restaurant. Lets just get through this dinner first though." Troy said looking really upset. Chloe came back with the drinks and dropped them onto the table.
"What do you want to eat?" She said glaring at them both.
"I'll have Penny Ala Vodka." Troy and Gabriella said at the same time. They smiled and laughed at it.
"Haha, how funny." Chloe said as she walked away. A few seconds later Troy went to go take a sip of his soda and as he did he felt something in his mouth, he spit it out back into the cup and when he looked in the cup he realized there were ants in his cup.
He showed Gabriella and she said "Gross, tell the waiter."
"The waiter! She did it on purpose because she's jealous." Troy said excited. Chloe walked past and Troy stopped her and told her about the soda, she rolled her eyes and took the soda back to get a new one.
Gabriella then took a sip of her water and spit it out all over Troy because it was salty. "Oh my gosh, I am so sorry its salty and it was just a reaction."
"It's ok, I'm just going to go to the mens room quick to clean my self up." Troy said. He got up and went to the bathroom.
Chloe came back with the soda and put it down on th table, then as she walked away she turned around and said "Oops, I forgot a straw and went to place the straw on the table when she did that she "accidently" knocked the soda down and it went all over Gabriella. Chloe walked away without even helping.
Troy got back and saw Gabriella soaked he asked "What happen?" She told him what happened and then went to the bathroom. Gabriella came back and now they both looked like they just got out of a sewer. Chloe then brought the food out. They were both afraid to eat it after all she did but they were both really hungry. They decided to just get the check and they would stop for burger king on the way home.
Troy got the check and payed as they left Chloe tripped Gabriella and she fell flat on her face and her nose started to bleed they got her up and ran to Troy's car and they got tissues
"I feel horrible, I am so sorry." Troy said
"Its fine, really." Gabriella said holding her nose. Troy drove to burger king's drive through and ordered two Hamburgers. He parked in the back of the lot and they ate.
Gabriella and Troy were very quite. Then out of know where Gabriella started to cry.
"What's wrong? Are you hurt?" Troy said nervously.
"No, no my nose stopped and I'm fine its just..." She paused and started to cry more.
"What's wrong? You can tell me anything?" Troy said.
"Well, I have to move back to my hometown." She started to cry more and even louder "my mom got fired from her new job and needs her old one back."
Troy was also crying now to but just little tears. "Well we can still stay in touch right?"
"Yeah, it will be hard but we can." Gabriella said as she wiped her tears."
"Yeah, but we will make it work." Troy smiled.
They drove home and Gabriella gave Troy one final kiss before she moved away. She was moving tomorrow morning. They both cried and they agreed to email each other everyday, write letters with updated pictured once a month, Instant message when ever possible and visit each other whenever they could.
The next morning Gabriella left and Troy spent his day alone. They both thought about each other nonstop the whole day.
The days went by and both of their lives worked out nicely with emails, letters and what not. The letters and emails had everything they did in their lives in them. They didn't see each other until the summer, but it was worth the wait. The relationship worked out for a long time.
