After the Twinkle Towne, Gabriella and Troy stayed just friends. They both wanted to be more, but Troy didn't think she loved him the way he did. But boy was he wrong. She loved him so much, but she was tired of waiting for him. She knew he loved her too, so she never let go. But gee, was he stubborn. She left so many hints for him.


Gabriella was singing in her room. Not knowing anyone was watching, she pretended she was at her concert.

She grabbed her brush, "Thank you for coming to my concert! Now this one goes out to the one who has my heart forever...

If ever you wondered if you touched my soul yes you do

Since I met you I'm not the same

You bring life to everything I do

Just the way you say hello

With one touch I can't let go

Never thought I'd fall in love with you...

Because of you, my life has changed, thank you for the love and joy you bring

Because of you, I feel no shame, I'll tell the world it's because of yo--"

"How come I wasn't invited to your concert. This hurts Montez.. I thought you were my best friend." He placed his hand on his heart to create more effect. "So, who is this guy?"

"He's just the most greatest person with beautiful blue eyes and talent that will knock you off your feet. He's real sweet too. I think i love him."

Troy frowned and asked stupidly, "Do I know him? He sounds a lot like me."

Gabriella just rolled her eyes. And they continued to talk.

End flashback.

If that wasn't enough, she tried another way. Trying to be more obvious.


Troy was gathering his books from his locker when he noticed his best friend pop up. She had something in her hands.

"Hey, what's that?" he asked. She gave it to him while saying, "It's for you. My grandma told me to give it to the one I love. And I can honestly say I think you should have it."

Troy thinking it was just a friendship gift, gratefully took it and thanked her. They were in the middle of a hug when he said, "Not that I don't love it, but why didn't you just give it to Taylor?"

She let go and said, "Because, I love you." He was surprised but shrugged it off and said, "Cool." That disappointed her.

End flashback.

She was still determined to make him realize what she's been doing.

"I don't know Tay, maybe I was wrong. Maybe he really doesn't feel the same. Maybe he loves someone else. Maybe we're not meant to be. May-"

"Gabi! Get a hold of yourself. Do you hear what you're saying? MAYBE. That means your just thinking things. Ask everyone we all know it," Taylor said as they was walking down the hall.

"But I can't help but feel that this is all wrong. He never made a move, nothing. Just a bunch of mixed signals," Gabriella reasoned. Sharpay walked by with Kelsi and joined the two.

"Is she still thinking what i think she's thinking?" Sharpay questioned.

"As confusing as that was, yes." Taylor replied. "GABRIELLA. STOP! WE KNOW YOU LOVE HIM, AND HE LOVES YOU! WHY DON'T YOU MAKE THE MOVE INSTEAD?! Sheesh, people these days!" Kelsi yelled.

The other three girls stopped with mouthes open with shock. "See, its that obvious that Kelsi is tired of it, but hey! Quiet girl has a good idea," Sharpay said sneakily.

Taylor nodded knowing what she was thinking, and Kelsi glared at her with the fact that she still called her quiet girl.

"And Shar, what idea would this be?..." Gabriella wondered.

"Simple. You make the moves."

Gabriella was unsure of what was going to happen now.

Okay. Hm... Tell me what you think. Even if its harsh. It's all good in the neighborhood. If you have ideas for what should happen, just let me know! I am more than delighted to hear them. :) Oh yeah! and the song she sang was "Because of You" by Keith Martin.
