Forever, My Guardian Angel
Disclaimer: I do not own HSM though I wish I did
(A/N: here is the awaited first chapter of the sequel to 'Your Guardian Angel.' I'm posting this now because I will probably forget to do it tomorrow with SAT's fresh on my brain. Anyway Enjoy)
I never thought my life could change so much in the span of five months but it did...and it changed in a way I would never forget. Not only was I voted Junior Prom Queen but my sweet and charming boyfriend asked me to marry him. I know it's a big jump but I love him and he loves me. We were like a fairy tale happy ending. But happy endings can't last forever.
Friday June 2, 2006
It had been two weeks since me and Troy were announced Junior Prom King and Queen and since Troy proposed to me. He didn't have a ring for me yet but I could care less about the ring all I wanted was to be with him for the rest of my life.
"Hey babe" he whispered in my ear as I stood at my locker. I smiled and turned to him.
"Hey" I said before he leaned down and placed a kiss on my lips. "How was your night?"
"Good. Could have been better if you were sleeping next to me."
"Did you tell your mom yet?"
"About you and me getting married? No."
"And why not?"
"Because I'm afraid of what she'll say." I turned back to my locker and he placed his hands on my waist, pulling me closer to him.
"You'll have to tell her before you're eighteen birthday. I do plan to make you my wife once we're both eighteen." his said into my ear, making me smile.
That's what we agreed on. We were to be married once we were both eighteen. I was okay with it. He was okay with it. Even his parents were okay with it. Now all we needed was my mother's approval.
"I know. I know I'm just...scared of what she'll think. I don't want her to say no."
"How do you know she will?"
"How do you know she won't?"
"Touché, my love, touché. But you'll have to tell her sometime."
"But what if she says no?"
"I'll marry you anyway." he whispered and I turned to him, looking into his sky blue eyes for any sign of lying but I found none. He was telling the truth. He didn't care if my mother didn't approve, he just wanted to be with me. I smiled and kissed him, letting my lips linger on his until the bell rung. "Come on." he said and I closed my locker. I took his hand and we walked to homeroom.
Of course our schedules were against us. We only had homeroom and History class together, other than that free period and lunch were the only times we could see each other. So we made the best of what we had.
During free period, we went up to the rooftop garden and sat there, not saying one word. We were comfortable being in each other company. We sat on the bench wrapped up in each other's arms. He was leaning against the arm of the bench and I was leaning against his chest.
"Gabi?" Troy said as he played with my fingers.
"Have you ever thought of what your life might be like in the future?"
"Not until I met you" I said and looked up at him.
"Same here" he said and kissed the top of my head. "You're the only thing I see in my future" I smiled and snuggled into his chest. The bell rung minutes later and I stood up.
"Let's go lover boy" I outstretched my hand to him and he smirked. He took my hand and I tried to pull him up but instead, he pulled me down and kissed me. "Troy" I laughed out. "Come on we need to go before we're late"
"Kay" I pushed myself off of him and helped him up. He took my hand and we walked downstairs.
School ended faster than I anticipated it to. I was nervous because at lunch I promised Troy I would tell my mother about our engagement. I took the books out of my locker that I needed and put the books that I didn't, back.
"Hey" Troy said as he leaned against the locker next to mine. "Ready to go?"
"Yeah" I said and closed my locker. I took his hand and we left the school building. He led me to his car and I climbed into the passenger seat. We pulled out of the student parking lot and minutes later pulled up to my house. My heart was beating wildly and my palms were sweating. I didn't know what my mother would say and that's what made me most nervous.
"Come on Gabs you promised" Troy said and I nodded. I got out of the car and slowly made my way to my front door. I took a deep breath before opening the door. Troy followed me inside and closed the door behind him.
"Mom you home?" I called
"In the kitchen" she called back and I made my way to the kitchen.
"Mom there's something I need to..." I stopped when a familiar figure caught my eye "...tell you." The person sitting at the table stood up and smiled at me. "D-dad?"
"Hi Gabriella" he said. "Hello" he said to someone behind me and that's when I remembered that Troy was with me.
"Um...dad this Troy, my boyfriend. Troy this is my father."
"Nice to meet you Mr. Montez"
"Same here Troy."
"Gabi what was it you wanted to tell me?" my mother asked.
"Never mind. It's not important." I knew Troy was giving me a weird look but I couldn't tell my mother, not with my father in the room.
"Oh okay. It's nice to see you again Troy."
"Nice to see you again too Ms. Montez" Troy said.
"Um we're gonna be in my room. Call me if you need me." I said and grabbed Troy's hand, dragging him up to my room.
"Keep the door open" my mother said
"Okay" I yelled and closed my door till only a crack was left.
"Gabi why didn't you tell her?" Troy asked and I sat on my bed.
"I can't...not with him here"
"Why not?" he sat next to me and pushed a strand of hair out of my face.
"Just trust me on this Troy. Telling her now would be the wrong thing to do. I'm gonna wait until he leaves...then I'll tell her."
"Promise" he smiled then kissed me. When we parted, he leaned his forehead against mine and stared into my eyes.
"You're so beautiful" he whispered.
"You're not so bad yourself" he chuckled and kissed the tip of my nose.
"I better go" I nodded and kissed him once more. "I'll see you Monday"
"Kay" he stood up and left. I sighed and looked around my room. This room was different now. Usually I felt warm in this room, in this house, but now...it didn't feel the same and I knew why. Things were gonna be different now that my father was back. I just hoped he wasn't planning on staying. If he did...nothing would be the same.
