Out Of My Element



Gabriella stretched slightly. Sitting in a chair for two hours was not something she enjoyed doing. Groaning she threw down her pencil and stood up and silently thanked God that all her homework was finished. Gabriella picked up her phone and turned it on. Seeing how many calls she'd missed, she winced and then shrugged. If he wanted to talk then he was going to have to do it in person. Gabriella threw her phone onto her bed and threw open her balcony doors. She suddenly felt very giddy, and a small giggle escaped her. Gabriella spun around, still laughing and then stopped suddenly when she heard his voice.

"Whoa, you have really unpredictable mood swings." Gabriella spun to glare at the person who had spoken.

Troy Bolton stood, leaning against the doorframe, watching his girlfriend of six months spin around like a six year old at a party, in amusement.

"How long have you been standing there?" Gabriella demanded heatedly. Although she was mad at him, she had to admit he looked good, dressed in a pair of faded blue jeans and a white wife beater; he had the ability to make any girl forget exactly why they were mad at him. Gabriella herself was having trouble remembering why she was mad at him at the moment.

"Hmmm let me think, since you finished your homework." Troy replied easily slipping into the room and walking towards her, wearing a sly grin that he knew drove Gabriella crazy.

"You've been standing there for that long!? God, Troy……how come you were so quiet?" Gabriella suddenly went from mad to curious as he came to stop in front of her.

"Cause, Miss Montez, I am quite aware that you're furious with me and I knew you'd be madder at me if I distracted you from finishing your homework. Seeing as you're a nerd and all." Troy instantly regretted his words when Gabriella flared up again.

"Oh, I'm a nerd. Then what would you be Mr Bolton? Hmm, let me think. Oh I know a stupid, infuriating athlete who doesn't think school works important, mainly because he has absolutely no idea how to do it." Gabriella snapped back folding her arms tightly around her body and continuing to glare at him.

"Okay, you just told me I was stupid twice." Troy said easily, he loved toying with her and watching her grow more furious by the second. Gabriella continued to glare at him, not ready to let him get to her the way he had in the past.

"So? I really don't care." Gabriella threw her hands in the air and rolled her eyes at him.

They were both silent for a moment, as Troy studied his girlfriend. He could tell she wasn't willing to get into another argument. That was pretty obvious. He could also tell she didn't want to be in the position she was right now and sighed, wishing he had been more careful when he had spoken to her.

"Gabs," he started and Gabriella looked up at him "Look; I know you're not happy about what I said and I'm sorry that I said that, for both times, in the gym and just now. I wasn't thinking." Troy finished and Gabriella sighed.

"I know, I'm sorry I blew up on you." she replied and Troy grinned pulling her into his arms.

"Hey, if you hadn't blown up I would have rushed you to the emergency room in a complete panic." He said cheekily and Gabriella grinned in spite of herself.

"Ha ha, you're such a jerk." She replied and Troy laughed as Gabriella looked up at him, her chin resting on his chest.

"I know, but you love me anyway." Troy said and Gabriella hit him.

"Another thing Montez, you have to stop hitting me! In the six months we've been together, you've probably bruised every part of my body just because you have absolutely no comebacks. And don't you dare hit me again because I just said that." Troy warned when he saw the look on Gabriella's face.

"Or what?" she asked innocently and Troy raised his eyebrows at her, recognizing the look on her face.

"Or else," he grinned and Gabriella smiled innocently and hit him on the arm. In one swift moment Troy bent down and grabbed Gabriella's legs and threw her over his shoulder.

"OH MY GOD! Troy! Put me down! I'm in a skirt!" She squealed and he laughed, before throwing her down on her bed.

"I told you you'd be punished." He pointed out crawling on top of her and starting to kiss her neck. Gabriella laughed.

"Yeah great punishment Bolton, throwing me on my bed." Gabriella said sarcastically as he moved up and kissed her mouth. Troy pulled away from her and grinned.

"Did I or did I not pick you up in a skirt when I knew your neighbor was looking?" Troy asked and Gabriella went bright red. Pushing Troy off her she jumped up and ran out to her balcony, squinting she searched for her neighbors face in the house. Troy came behind her and slipt his arms around her waist.

"You're such a jerk." Gabriella informed him, still searching for her neighbor, she felt Troy push her tumbling brown curls to one side and begin to kiss the back of her neck.

"I know. It's one of the only things you say to me." He reminded her and Gabriella shrugged.

"So? It's true. Where is Mrs Haliday?" Gabriella asked desperately and then she heard Troy chuckle.

"Gabs, no-one saw anything, I just said that as part of your punishment." Troy said and Gabriella turned, a furious look on her face, before she could say anything Troy kissed her firmly.

"Mmm-hmm……okay……maybe I……can…forgive……you…for……doing……that." Gabriella muttered as they continued to kiss. Troy suddenly pulled back from Gabriella and stared at her.

"What?" she asked and as his blue eyes looked at her worriedly, Gabriella could feel his hand on her forehead and began to wonder what she'd done wrong.

"Troy, what's wrong?" Gabriella asked as he continued to look at her worriedly. She didn't like the look on his face.

"You've got no temperature, you're not pale and I'm pretty sure you haven't been feeling sick at all." He said wonderingly and Gabriella began to feel worried.

"Troy, what'd I do?" Gabriella asked as he pulled away from her completely, looking at her up and down.

"You forgave me." Troy said and then burst into laughter as Gabriella went bright red, incredibly pale and then picked up a stuffed animal from her bed and threw it at him.

"You're such a jerk!" she exclaimed as Troy dodged the stuffed animal and continued to grin at her.

"Hey, you love me anyway. I've got to go. So I'll see you later." Before Gabriella could so much as protest he leaned in and kissed her quickly and then disappeared out the door dodging a flying cat as he did so.

"You're a jerk!" Gabriella yelled as the door shut and the stuffed cat bounced off the shut door. She heard Troy burst into laughter again and grinned in spite herself, at least he knew he was a jerk.

A/N: So that's the first chapter! I hope you all liked it! Because that was a lot of fun to write! I'll try and get the next chapter up soon! I have a half formed plot for this one and have to figure it out! But normally I just sit and type so the plot shouldn't be too much of a problem!
