Prologue: The Decision

She stared at her frail silhouette, taking deep, appreciative breaths. Sharpay Evans had been dreaming of this day for years now, and today was the day. She spent months in preparation on meticulous details for this day, and here it was. She bought the gorgeous, pearl white, Vera Wang wedding dress, was able to book the cathedral-vaulted church, have George Raymond, an up-and coming florist to aide her in her desire to have the pure white with striking red stamen flowers, the Casablanca Lilies, and hire Bobby Flay to cater the wedding. She should have been ecstatic that this day had finally come. But she wasn't.

Her mascara fell down her delicate porcelain skin as she shed tears. She could not help but feel guilty that she could possible be making the biggest mistake of her life. Sure, she cared for Chad, but she just could not get over him. she tried to erase him from her life, but her efforts were futile. No matter what, he still found a way into Sharpay's heart, and she hated him for that.

She fiddled with her transparent, sheer white veil, embedded with 2 carat diamonds in a certain pattern. She hoped to herself that she was doing the right thing, getting married to Chad. Chad Danforth was a handsome, young man, any woman would kill to marry him. Sharpay remembered a time when she used to feel like that, that was until she met Troy Bolton. God, how did he do it? How was he able to touch her in a way, that would make her legs go weak, and her body to tense up. She hated how he has left a strong, uncontrollable impact on her once determined life.

She glanced at the clock, hung on one of the walls on the dressing room. "10 minutes till the wedding?" she thought to herself. She gazed her agile reflection, and realized that she had to go through with this. She had to man up for her actions, it would break her heart if she embarrassed Chad by refusing to marry him. She snatched a white chenille cloth, and dabbed her face, knowing that today she had to make the decision, not knowing what that was exactly.

Chad Danforth peered at the people seated at the church pews, their eyes fixated on him. Everyone he knew was there… except for him. He could not believe that his own best friend was not there. He took a look at his best man, the blonde man that took the place of his once best friend. He pondered on what once was their friendship, knowing that they used to be so close, it seemed as if they were attached by the abdomen. Chad always followed Troy wherever life took them, and the two supported each other on everything. The had the same taste in everything: hobbies, style, life… women. One certain blonde to be exact.

How did it come to this, the two permanently damaging their friendship all because of a woman, but she was worth it.

Chad was released from his thoughts, as he heard the pianist begin to play the song that signaled the wedding ceremony had begun. Chad saw her, looking as radiant as ever, the sun's rays shining from the large stained-glass windows shining on the golden goddess. She was a breathtaking sight indeed, everyone smiling. Chad's apprehension slowly faded, knowing that this was right, or was it?

Sharpay Evans seemed to glide along the marble floor, as she made her way to the alter. She continued to take deep low breaths, trying to hide her little antic, hoping no one saw her true nervous state that she was currently going through. She only saw one person eying her, knowing the truth… Gabriella Montez. She saw past Sharpay's façade, and only shook her head in disappointment. After all, she was one of the few who knew the truth.

After what almost an eternity, she finally reached the alter, plastering on a smile. Chad took her hand, as the priest began the sermon.

"We are gathered here today, to join these two in holy matrimony. If anyone has any objections, speak now or forever hold your peace." As the priest recited these words, the church door opened, a man barging in, running through the aisles. Chad and Sharpay widened their eyes in horror, as the man came in.

"Stop, now! Sharpay you cannot do this. Don't marry him!" the man shouted. Gabriella Montez sprouted from her pew, wearing her black Chanel gown.

"Troy! You better get the hell out of here!" she commanded in a venomous manner. Troy only ignored her demand.

"Sharpay please. Come with me!" Troy pleaded, tears streaming down his sculpted face. Sharpay felt lost, not knowing what to do. Who was she supposed to choose… Chad or Troy?

"Troy, get out of here or I will kick your ass!" Chad spit out.

"I can't Chad! I love her!" Troy exclaimed.

"She won't go to you. She's going to marry me, right Sharpay." Chad turned to face her. Sharpay could feel everyone's eyes on her, anticipating to see what her decision was. She was dumbfounded at how it came to this moment, having to choose between two men who she loved ever so dearly.

"Well, Sharpay? Who" Chad asked.

"Yeah Sharpay, who?" Troy replied.

"I… I…" Silence filled the room, as everyone was ready to hear her answer.

A/N: That is all for now. What did you think of it? I hope you guys liked it! Very dramatic I know, but this part takes much later in the story. I just felt that it was right to start it off with a bang. Next chapter, I will go into more detail on this, and it will be the true beginning.
