((omg I am so sorry about the WAY TOO LONG WAIT!!! I'm finishing the story now …hope you like it))

When the night falls on you, you don't know what to do,
Nothing you confess can make me love you less
I'll stand by you, I'll stand by you, I won't let nobody hurt you,
I'll stand by you.
So, if you're mad get mad, don't hold it all inside,
Come on and talk to me now.

And hey, what you got to hide? I get angry too
Well I'm alot like you.
When you're standing at the crossroads, don't know which path to choose,
Let me come along, cause even if your wrong
I'll stand by you, I'll stand by you, I won't let nobody hurt you,
I'll stand by you.
Take me in into your darkest hour, and I'll never desert you.
I'll stand by you.


"Mommy, tell us the story about the basketball player and the singer," one of Gabriella's children begged. "It's our favorite."

Gabriella sighed. She felt as if she was constantly retelling this story nightly. "Once upon a time there was an extremely sexy basketball player who was the fairest man in all the land. He was engaged to a complete witch, you see, enchanted by her. She waved her bleach blonde hairy hands over his heart and he was lovestruck. But, you see, there was a homely singer who had been in love with him for the past ten years."

"She wasn't ugly, mama," her daughter chimed. "According to daddy, she was the most beautiful girl on earth. Every time she walked into a room, the ground froze and silence swept over, and every person's eye was on her."

"Well that's daddy's version," Gabriella laughed. "Anyways, after ten long years, the two stars crossed paths once again by order of a twisted fate. You see, not many people knew that the basketball man was also a highly talented singer, and he was due to record some duets on the singer's latest album. During their recording sessions, sparks began to rekindle into flames, and the two starstruck lovers began to love each other once again. This love was so strong, that it began to dominate over the evil witch's spell. As the evil witch began to frantically cling onto the basketball player, his love for the singer grew even stronger until he could not deny it anymore. He and the singer declared their love for each other and lived happily ever after."

"I love that story," her daughter sighed.

"And I love you," Gabriella replied kissing her daughter on the forehead. "Now it is time for bed."

"Tell it one more time," her daughter begged.

"Good night." Gabriella turned off the light and shut the door, stopping once to look back at her sleepy daughter before she did so. She was truly living her happily ever after.

Troy and Gabriella eventually married each other within six months, and they sold both their houses and bought an entirely new one together. They recorded numerous albums together through the years. They had four kids: Chad, Taylor, Sharpay, and Zeke. They all lived happily ever after.
