(A/N: Last chapter everyone...man I had fun writing this and I enjoyed reading everyone's reviews. You guys had me laughing the whole way through. Thank you to all my faithful reviewers who reviewed for every chapter. Keep an eye out for the sequel, which I have a name for already but you're gonna have to wait for that. It's 12 midnight and it's been two weeks since this came out.)

Chapter 19

Friday May 26, 2006

It's been almost a week since I woke out of that coma and I feel a whole lot better. I was let out of the hospital on Tuesday and I was told to rest for the rest of the week. But today is the Junior Prom and I couldn't miss out on finding out if I was Prom King. I also wanted to know if Gabriella was Prom Queen. Yeah the student body made her a Prom Queen candidate since they found out that Gabriella was meant for that bullet and the fact that the entire student body knew I was in love with her.

Right now I'm sitting in my room, bored as hell waiting for Chad to come. A knock came to my door and I turned my head.

"Come in" the door opened and in walked Gabriella. "Hey Gabi what are you doing here?"

"I came to see how you were doing." I smiled and patted the space next to me. She walked over to my bed and sat down beside me. "So how are you doing?"

"Better since you walked in the room." she smiled and I gave her a soft kiss.

"Are you picking me up?"

"Sadly no. Me and the guys have something to do before we get there so Taylor's gonna pick you up."

"But it's not special if the guy doesn't pick up the girl."

"Gabi relax it's just Junior Prom we have next year to make it special and I promise it will be."

"But I want this one to be special too."

"It will be just wait and see."

"Promise?" I kissed her again and smiled.

"Promise" she smiled and leaned towards me. I met her the rest of the way and there started our make-out session.

"Yo Troy." came Chad's loud voice and my door opened. "Oops sorry" me and Gabriella parted and she stood up.

"I'll see you later Troy" I nodded and watched her leave. "Bye Chad"

"Later Gabs" she walked out of my room and Chad smiled at me.

"What?"

"Does your parents know you have girls up in your room?"

"Not girls just Gabi" he chuckled and sat down. "So is it ready?"

"Yep. I went to the school earlier and told the DJ about our plans."

"Good and Gabriella doesn't suspect a thing." Chad smiled and stood up.

"I gotta go and get ready. Then I gotta call Jason and Zeke."

"See ya."

"Later" he left my room and I sighed. I looked at the clock and it read 5:00 p.m. Just two more hours left to go.

At seven I showered, changed and grabbed my acoustic guitar. I put my guitar in my trunk and left to the school. I parked my car and looked around for someone. When I spotted the person I was looking for I waved. The red haired girl standing at the doorway smiled and walked over.

"Hey Troy."

"Hey. You look nice" I said slyly and she blushed. "Jason's gonna be drooling over you."

"Thanks"

"So is everything set?"

"Yep. Everything's ready. Jason and the others are already here and they've set up."

"Great thanks Kels."

"It's nothing Troy. You're like a brother to me. I have to make sure nothing goes wrong in your life."

"Too bad things already have."

"Yeah well you can't change the past. You have your acoustic?"

"Yeah it's in my trunk." I led her over to my car and popped the trunk. I pulled out my guitar and handed it to her. "Thanks Kels" I kissed her cheek, in a brotherly sisterly way and she nodded.

"You're welcome. I'll see you inside." she walked away and I closed my trunk.

"So is that why you couldn't bring me?" came Gabriella's voice, anger dripping through every word. I turned around and came face to face with an angry Gabriella.

"What? No. She's just a friend that's all."

"Yeah right. How long have you been doing her?"

"Gabriella I'm telling the truth."

"I don't have time to deal with you." she walked away but I grabbed her arm.

"Gabi I'm not lying to you."

"Just leave me alone." she pulled out of my grasp and walked away.

"Shit." I ran inside and went to find Chad. I found him on the stage built in the gym for this occasion. "Chad we have a problem."

"What's up?"

"Gabriella saw me give Kelsi and friendly kiss on the cheek and she wigged out. Now she won't talk to me."

"Damn that girl has trust issues."

"What do you expect? After trusting Chris I would find it hard to trust a guy again too." Jason commented.

"Look we're gonna have to move this performance up."

"To when?"

"Probably after they announce King and Queen."

"Okay no problem."

"Thanks guys"

"You're always welcome Troy." Zeke said as he set up the amplifiers. I just hoped this would work.

"Okay everyone it's that time. Time to announce Junior Prom King and Queen." (A/N: I don't know if they have this in some schools, I know mines doesn't but I've heard of schools having a Junior Prom I'm just not sure if they pick a king and queen so don't trust my word on this) the DJ said and I looked over at Gabriella. She kept her eyes ahead of her, refusing to look at me. I sighed and prayed to God that this worked. "And the winner for Prom King goes to..." there was a drum roll and the DJ pulled out the results from the envelop. "Troy Bolton"(no surprise there) the whole gym broke out into cheers and I walked on stage with a forced smile. Kelsi placed the crown on my head. My eyes wandered over to Gabriella but she was talking to Taylor. "And the lucky lady for Prom Queen is...Gabriella Montez" the look on Gabriella's face was pure shock. She walked on stage slowly, trying to contemplate what just happened. They handed me the crown and I walked over to Gabriella. She glared at me and turned around. I gently placed the crown on her head and let my hands linger at the base of her neck.

"Gabi..." she turned around and gave me one more hard glare before walking off stage.

"Now it's time for the King and Queen to have their first dance." I grabbed the microphone from him and faced the crowd.

"I know usually the King and Queen have to dance together but...I have something else in mind." Kelsi came over to me with a stool and my acoustic. She put a microphone stand in front of me and I put the mic on it. "I made this song a few weeks ago and I just finished it earlier this month. I made it for a special girl in my life, the first girl I've loved since middle school. She is the only thing in this world that makes me feel important. She is my world and without her I doubt I would still be here today." I looked over at Gabriella who was staring at me with a confused look. "This is for not only my queen but my angel. This is for you Gabriella Montez."

With my angel staring back at me, I started the song that was made for her and only her. I closed my eyes and got lost in the words.

When I see your smile

Tears roll down my face

I can't replace

And now that I'm strong

I have figured out

How this world turns cold

And it breaks through my soul

And I know I'll find deep inside me

I can be the one.

Every word was coming from my heart. She was the only one who made me feel this way. She was the only one I could ever feel this way about.

I will never let you fall

I'll stand up with you forever

I'll be there for you through it all

Even if saving you sends me to heaven

I was once at that road but I needed to be with her one last time before I would go that far. She knew it was true. She was there when it happened.

It's okay

It's okay

It's okay

Seasons are changing

And waves are crashing

And stars are falling all for us

Days grow longer

And nights grow shorter

I can show you

I'll be the one

Ever since she stepped into my life, I found my days becoming longer and my nights growing shorter just so I could see her more. I wanted to be the only one for her, I would do anything for her.

I will never let you fall

I'll stand up with you forever

I' ll be there for you through it all

Even if saving you sends me to heaven

Gabi you're the only one for me. You're the one I wanna be with. You're the one I wanna spend my life with. You're the one I would die for.

Cuz you're my

You're my

My, my true love

My whole heart

Please don't throw that away

Cuz I'm here for you

Please don't walk away and

The spotlight opened wider and Chad, Zeke and Jason began playing behind me. I didn't even notice though because my mind was stuck on wondering what Gabriella was thinking at that moment.

Please tell me you'll stay, stay

Use me as you will

Pull my strings just for a thrill

And I know I'll be okay

Though my skies are turning gray

I will never let you fall

I'll stand up with you forever

I'll be there for you through it all

Even if saving you sends me to heaven

I will never let you fall

I'll stand up with you forever

I'll be there for you through it all

Even if saving you sends me to heaven

We ended the song and the crowd broke out in applause. My eyes caught sight of Gabriella and she had tears in her eyes. I set aside my acoustic and stood up. She ran up the stage stairs and into my awaiting arms. I wrapped my arms around her, never wanting to let go.

"I love you Troy Bolton." she whispered.

"I love you too, Gabriella Montez and I always will." I brought her face up to mine and planted a soft kiss on her lips. She returned it and wrapped her arms around my neck. This is how I wanted to spend my life, in the arms of someone I loved and loved me back. That's exactly what I planned to do. I planned to spend my life with the woman in front of me. "Gabi" she looked into my eyes, her brown orbs gleaming with life. "There's something I wanna ask you."

"What?"

"I know we're young but...will you marry me?" she looked at me, surprised at my question. "There's no other woman I would want to spend my life with than you." she smiled and kissed me.

"Of course I will." I smiled and brought her into a passionate kiss. I didn't want this moment to end, this perfect moment in my life was where I wanted to be...with the woman I loved with everything I am. She was my happy ending and I was her guardian angel, watching over her, protecting her, loving her with every ounce of my being never stopping until time itself stopped.

I will be there to protect her, even if saving her sends me to heaven.

(A/N: The End...for now. I know that last part was kind of corny but I found it sweet. Please visit my youtube account, link found on my profile page.
