Chapter 1

No one's POV/ Song Lyrics /Gabriella's POV

Gabriella unlocked the door to my flat. Tossing the keys on the coffee table, she looked at herself in the mirror.

God, I looked a state.

Hair messed up, forehead covered in sweat, no make up whatsoever.

Mind you, what's the point in dressing up for work when you are supposed to be saving lives?

Gabriella left medical school a few years ago and had become a doctor at St Joseph's Hospital. She was living her dream job and loved the fact that she walked into work every day to make a difference for the better.

However, after having a very long shift and having Peter Williams, her lung cancer patient for the last couple of months, die on the operating table a few minutes before she was due to leave, she didn't really feel all that great.

Gabriella looked at the clock in the kitchen. 3am. Taylor was asleep in her room. Taylor was her best friend since high school. They went through college together, medical school together, worked at the same hospital and shared the same flat. Gabriella was there for her when Taylor's high school boyfriend dumped her a week before she graduated college. And Taylor was there for Gabriella when her high school boyfriend dumped her on graduation day. Basically, she didn't know what she'd do if she didn't have Taylor.

Gabriella and Taylor hadn't seen Troy or Chad since college but they did see the rest of their high school gang whenever they had a day off from work. Sharpay and Ryan had fulfilled their dreams and had become actors on Broadway. Kelsi was also in show business but wrote the music for productions. Zeke ran a very successful restaurant, which was known to always be booked up for weeks in advance, but he always made allowances for his friends. He even had a cake named after his girlfriend, the "Sharpay Tower Gateau ". Jason owned the sport store "Cross" which had everything from basketballs to canoe oars.

Jason and Zeke were the only two out of the group who ever kept in touch with Chad and Troy since they had all been on the basketball team at school and even then it was a phone call once a month. That's how everyone knew both boys had become pretty famous basketball players for the NBA. However, since Jason was the only one who was interested in sports these days, no one really paid much attention to the sport, or them.

Gabriella looked in the kitchen once more and saw a large amount of dishes in the sink. She sighed. It was Taylor's turn to do the washing up but knowing Taylor, Gabriella knew that if she didn't do it herself, it would never get done. She started to fill the sink with water and tried to find her Ipod. Whenever she was cleaning, she listened to music. Since everyone in her building was probably sleeping, she thought it was best to listen to it quietly. When she found it, she put the earphones in her ears. She turned the first song she saw on. It was Who Knew by Pink.

You took my hand, you showed me how

You promised me you'd be around

Uh huh, that's right

I took your words and I believed

In everything you said to me

Yeah huh, that's right

As Gabriella listened, she began to mouth the words and sway a little. Memories started coming back.

If someone said three years from now

You'd be long gone

I'd stand up and punch them out

'Cos they're all wrong

I know, better

'Cos you said forever

And ever

Who knew?

Remember when we were such fools

And so convinced and just too cool

Oh no, no no

I wish I could touch you again

I wish I could still call you friend

I'd give, anything

Gabriella remembered when Troy took her hand. She remembered when Troy did promise he would always be there. She remembered when they did act like complete idiots with the rest of the gang. She remembered when Troy said he'd love her. Forever and Ever.

When someone said count your blessings now

'Fore they're long gone

I guess I just didn't know how

I was all wrong

But they knew, better

Still you said forever

And ever

Who knew?

Small tears began to roll down Gabriella's cheeks

I'll keep you locked in my head

Until we meet again

Until we, until we meet again

And I wont forget you my friend

What happened?

If someone said three years from now

You'd be long gone

I'd stand up and punch them out

Cause they're all wrong

That last kiss

I'll cherish

Until we meet again

And time makes it harder

I wish I could remember

But I'll keep

Your memory

You visit me in my sleep

My darling

Who knew?

My darling, I miss you

My darling

Who knew?

Gabriella's eyes were so blurred now that she put down the plate she was washing and sat down. Every word of that song was true to her. Well okay, if someone had said she and Troy would be over in three years, she probably wouldn't have punched them. Probably said something back.

And actually, no one ever said they wouldn't last. They were the perfect couple. They looked destined to be together. Well, who knew?

Gabriella did miss him, she did dream about him, she did cherish their last kiss, and she did wish she could see him again. But she couldn't. For the good of her feelings, she knew she couldn't.

Gabriella wiped her eyes. She got irritated with herself.

Why did I get so upset about something that happened years and years ago? God, you are such an idiot!

She gave up on the washing up and slumped to her room. After all, who knew the perfect couple wouldn't last. Who knew that after Gabriella hugged Troy after graduation, she would say those dreaded words in a relationship "We need to talk".

Gabriella sighed and told herself the thing her friends always told her to make her feel better after all these years.

I am probably better off without him anyway.
