The First Step

Disclaimer: I don't own anything.

There they were, the pair of the night, the guests of honour were missing from their own party down in the gym.

They just sat there on the bench, one biting her lip and the other rubbing the back of his neck.

They had crossed the lines of friendship in the gym and they were paying the price now, awkward silences and small coughing fits.

What were they supposed to do now?

The young boy turned his head towards the girl. He spoke her name softly as not wanting to disturb her intense concentration of the stars.

She looked at him, waiting for something, anything that would make her less self-conscious of herself.

"Do you mind if I kissed you?"

At that moment underneath the stars he had wrecked their platonic friendship but he had made the first step to becoming Troy and Gabriella.

Small drabble oneshot. I didn't really like the ending that much but it was the best I could do.
