Ryan Likes Who?
Chapter 1: Remembering
In the School Cafeteria
Ryan looked at her from across the table, only to find her making-out with her boyfriend, Chad. He knew it wasn't the right thing to want, but he couldn't help himself. Ryan Evans was in love with Taylor McKessie, and no one, not even Sharpay, knew about it.
He woke up once again the night before from a dream that he had been having since he started liking Taylor. In the dream, they were the prefect couple at East High. Everyone was either jealous of Taylor or of Ryan.
"Ryan, can't you get people to stop staring at us? It scares me out when they do," Taylor said.
"I know sweetie, but there is nothing I can do about it," I responded.
"Hey Taylor, hi Ryan. So Taylor, are you busy tonight?" Chad came up and asked.
"As a matter of fact, I am Chad. Why do you ask?" Taylor snapped.
"You know why I'm asking," Chad said.
"Well, Mr. Let's-Get-the-Girlfriend-of-the-Most-Popular-Guy-in-School-to-go-Out-with-Me, why don't you rethink your plans for tonight, and ask someone else out on a date!" Taylor always said.
After remembering the reoccurring dream, Ryan realized that the entire table was looking at him, including Taylor and Chad.
"What?" Ryan asked everyone.
"What do you mean 'what'? You looked out into space and then started drooling. Eww," Sharpay said.
"Yeah, I actually agree with Sharpay on that one, eww. Anyway Ryan, what were you thinking about that made you drool so much?" asked Gabriella.
"Nothing," Ryan muttered, hoping no one would hear him, but to his dismay someone did, and who else could it be but Taylor.
"Ryan, you can tell us what it was. We won't laugh. Wait, the rest of us won't laugh, but Sharpay might," Taylor said to reassure him.
"What was that supposed to mean, Miss Smarty-Pants?" Sharpay pouted.
"Never mind, go on Ryan, tell us," prompted Taylor.
"Um, I'd rather not," Ryan said.
"What are you, a scaredy-cat?" Sharpay teased her brother.
"No. Actually, if you all must know so badly, I'll tell you. I was thinking about food, but not just any food. Homemade food, like green bean casserole, fried chicken, spaghetti, steak, tri-tip, and macaroni and cheese. There, now will you please leave me alone?" asked Ryan angrily.
"Fine, for now the subject is dropped, but not for long," Sharpay agreed.
"Thank you," Ryan said smiling.
Later that day; at the Evans' Mansion
"So, Ryan, are you going to tell me the real reason why you were drooling so much today at lunch?" Sharpay asked of her twin brother.
"No," was Ryan's oh-so-simple response.
"And why not?" inquired Sharpay.
"Because, it is none of your business what I was thinking about that made me drool," huffed Ryan.
"You know that I will figure it out sooner or later, right?" asked the blonde Drama Queen.
"Yeah I do, but I can tell you this right now, it will be later rather than sooner because no one, but me, knows what it was," continued Ryan.
"Whatever Ryan," huffed Sharpay in turn.
