Chapter 1- Goodbye


Gabriella was in the car with Troy who was driving her to the airport where she would be taken to her new house, in Pennsylvania. She and Troy had been going strong for two years and they loved each other so much that words couldn't describe. He parked in the parking lot and opened the door for Gabriella. She wiped away a tear hoping that Troy didn't see her tearing up. But he did. He engulfed her into a hug and she started bawling uncontrollably. "S-S-She lied t-to me." She managed to get out. When she first arrived in Albuquerque, she promised that she made her company promise that they wouldn't transfer her until Gabriella gradated. No matter how much Gabriella pleaded to stay with Taylor or to just not move, her mom said no. "Sshhhh, it's ok, it's ok." Troy said trying to comfort her as best as he could. "You know I will always love you." He whispered as he brought her head up and kissed her. Neither of them never wanted it to end.

After she stopped crying, Troy grabbed her bags and put her arm around her waist. Her mom was already in Pennsylvania because she let Gabriella stay for another week with Troy and his parents. So she could say goodbye to all of her friends and spend time with Troy.


Without Gabriella knowing, Ben (Troy's dad.) and Anne (Troy's mother.) invited Gabriella's closest friends to throw her a 'goodbye' party. The doorbell rang and there stood Chad, Taylor, Sharpay, Zeke, Ryan, Kelsi, and the whole basketball team. "Ok guys, now remember, Troy is out with her for the morning and afternoon, we need to get everything ready by then." Ben told everyone. They all worked very hard. Everyone did their part. Sharpay's job was to get food. So she and Zeke spent the whole day together before making Gabriella's favorite snacks. Ryan and Kelsi's job was to get decorations and Chad and Taylor's job was to fins music.

After everything was ready, they saw Troy's car pull up to the house. "They're here!" Sharpay whisper-yelled as she tried her best to run to the backyard in her heels.

"Thanks for everything Troy, I really had the best day of my life." Gabriela said as he helped her out of his car. "I'm glad to see you had fun." He said giving her a quick peck on the lips. He unlocked the door to see everyone in the back scrambling to get to their places. He quickly shut the door and turned around to Gabriella. "What's wrong?" she asked him. "Errrr…nothing. I just remembered I forgot my cell in my car." He said. "I'll be right back." He said. He ran to the car and pretended to get his cell phone. He took his time getting back on to the door. "Did you find it?" Gabriela asked. "Yeah." He said. He opened the door and let Gabriella go in first. He closed the door and covered her eyes. She started to giggle. "Troy, what the heck are you doing?" she said. "Keep your eyes closed, I have a surprise for you." He said. He took his hands off of her eyes and led her to his backyard. "Open your eyes." Just as she did she looked around to see all of her friends and Troy's parents in the backyard screaming…"WE'LL MISS YOU!!!" she started to tear up as Troy's mom ran up to her and engulfed her In a hug. "We'll miss you." She whispered to her. "I'll miss you too." She said. Ben and Anne were like family to Gabriella. Ben came u p and hugged her and she said "I'll miss you Mr. Bolton." She said. "Remember, you are always welcome back here." He said. She nodded as she smiled at Troy who put his arm around her. They walked to where all of her friends were. After many, many, MANY hugs and 'I'll miss you's' later they started the party. Troy's basketball team was like brothers to Gabriella. Especially Chad. When she was sitting next to him he whispered…"Any time you need me, I'm only a phone cal laway." He whispered. She gave Chad another hug and she started enjoying herself.
