This is my first oneshot…it could possibly become a full story. I just wanted to know what you guys thought of it. I didn't want to make a trailer because I think that trailers don't give you enough information the way I write them. Lol! So…please tell me what you think. And if I do choose to make this a full story…it won't be until I finish one or two of my other ones…which two are coming to and end soon. So please review and tell me what you think!

Looks Are Deceiving


A very shy brunette walked through the doors of the intimidatingly (word?) big school called East High.

She watched as the people some called 'jocks' walked past her acting as if she didn't even exist.

She however…didn't realize a certain so called 'jock' looking intently at her.

"Dude, look at the cute chick over there! I'm so gonna hit up on that during French." The young jock heard a fellow 'friend' of his say to his soccer teammate. The young man greatly despised some other jocks. Well, most other jocks. In fact, the only ones he didn't, were his own teammates.

The young blue eyed boy pulled his best mate away from where his team was holding a conversation.

"What's up dude?" The brown eyed friend asked him.

"You know that new girl?" he asked his friend.

He nodded. "Warn everyone that if they go near her, they're going to have their worst nightmare." He said sneaking yet another glance at the beautiful brunette who's head was low as if she was afraid someone was going to jump on her any moment.

"You got it. And may I say…nice pick dude." He agreed.

Before the school knew it…Gabriella Montez was in the eyes of Troy Bolton. The East High god. And when Troy wanted someone….he got them.

Unbeknownst to Gabriella, she has nothing to fear because whenever Troy wants a certain girl…which doesn't happen to most girls…he goes out of his way to personally make sure that they come into absolutely no harm.

Gabriella finally found her homeroom and took a seat beside a small girl writing furiously in a notebook. The girl looked up and saw a new and nervous girl shaking slightly because of receiving glares from some girls. She gently tapped her on the shoulder which made Gabriella jump.

"Oh…I'm sorry. I just wanted to introduce myself. I'm Kelsi." She said quietly.

"Nice to meet you. I'm Gabriella. But please, call me Gabbi," she answered feeling more comfortable to the feeling that she knows someone nice in the school.

"Wait, are you Gabriella Montez?" Kelsi asked her. Gabriella nodded.

"Girl, you have nothing to be scared about." She said.

"What do you mean? I'm already receiving glares and stares from girls I don't even know." She said.

"You haven't heard have you?" Kelsi asked her. Gabriella shook her head.

"Heard what?" she asked.

"Do you know who Troy Bolton is?" Kelsi asked her. She shook her head again.

"Should I?" she asked her.

"Well, yeah, it would be good to know him because he kind of…well…'called' you." She answered trying to find the right words to put it.

"What do you mean he 'called' me?" she asked.

"Basically, you have caught Troy's attention. And that's an honor. Because he rarely is interested in girls. But I haven't seen him as interested in a girl as he is in you." She explained.

"So, who is this Troy Bolton you're talking about?" Gabriella asked. Kelsi pointed towards a group of guys sitting around some desks talking.

Troy looked up at Gabriella when he saw her look up and over at him and decided that now was as good as ever to make a move.

"Excuse me guys." He said.

Troy Bolton was not a bully. It's just that, when he wanted something, or rather someone, he got it no matter what it took. He was never violent unless he was really riled up by someone or something.

"Oh my. He's coming over here." Kelsi said. She went back to working on what she was writing in her notebook as Troy finally reached Gabriella.

Before Gabriella and Troy got a chance to say one word to each other…the bell rang before Troy was even halfway there.

Gabriella walked out into the hallway and continued walking glancing at the room signs looking for her science class when she felt a gentle hand on her arm. She turned around and for the first time saw the bluest eyes she had ever seen in her entire life.

"Hi." She said.

"Hi, I'm Troy Bolton." He said.

So this is the guy that 'called' me. He ain't bad looking…that's for sure. Wait…what?! She thought.

"Gabriella Montez." She said.

"Need help getting to your next class?" Troy asked sweetly.

"Um…yes actually." She said welcoming his offer.

"Where are you going?" he asked her gently taking her schedule out of her hands.

"Science." She said.

"Me too. Are you in regular science?" he asked her.

"No, advanced placement." She said looking down at her shoes. She was always picked on for being so intelligent and forced and threatened to do homework for a lot of people.

"Me too." He answered.

"It's right this way." He added.

He's in advanced placement too! He might be more than I thought he was! She thought.

They walked into their science class and Gabriella received countless stares and glares from girls left and right. She was going to take the usual forgotten seat in the back when a familiar hand pulled her down gently into the seat next to him.

"Why do you always sit in the back?" he asked her.

She shrugged looking down at her hands.

Before another word could be stated…class began.

Gabriella absorbed what she had just learned in science class like a dry sponge. Before she knew it…the bell rang. She stood up wondering whether or not she really wanted to leave. Whether she had the need to stay because of Troy or just because she always hated her first days of school she didn't know.

"What's your next class?" he asked her when he caught up to her in the hallway.

"Drama." She said.

"I don't have that class next…but I know who does." He said.

"Hey Taylor!" he called across the hallway to a dark skinned, friendly looking girl.

"Gabriella, this is Taylor, Taylor, this is Gabriella." He introduced them.

"Nice to meet you." Taylor said shaking Gabriella's hand.

"You too." Gabriella answered.

"Can you show her to Drama class? I don't have it next." He said.

"Absolutely. Come on!" Taylor exclaimed.

"So, how do you know Troy?" Gabriella asked curiously after walking in silence for a few moments.

"I'm Chad's girlfriend. Gosh it feels good to say that!" she squealed.

Gabriella and Taylor laughed as they walked into Drama.

"So, there's this party tonight, everyone's going. You should come." Taylor offered.

"I don't know, I mean, I just got here today." Gabriella said.

"Troy will be there. And as long as he's there, nobody and I repeat…nobody will touch you. You have caught the attention of Troy Bolton girl." She said.

Why do I feel oddly okay with that? Gabriella thought to herself.

"I'll think about it." She said as she saw Taylor's eyes shoot to the doorway. Gabriella turned around to find a bushy haired guy walking towards them.

Probably Chad. She thought. Her thoughts were confirmed when Taylor gave him a peck on the lips.

"Oh, Chad, this is Gabriella, Gabriella, Chad." Taylor introduced them.

"Ah…so this is the famous Gabriella Montez?" Chad asked.

Gabriella nodded and looked down. She didn't like it that everyone knew her name right now. Afraid of what could happen.

Miss Darbus summoned the class and everyone sat in their rightful places as she took attendance.

At lunch an hour later….

"Oh…you have to sit with me!" Taylor exclaimed to Gabriella who was grabbing her lunch from her locker. She shut her locker door and turned to Taylor.

"Sounds great! You know…I never made as many friends as I have here ever in my entire life." Gabriella sated as they started for the lunch room.

"Oh really? Why's that?" Taylor asked.

"My mom's work transferred her everywhere. But she made her company promise that they can't transfer her ever again." Gabriella explained as they sat down. She didn't even realize who was sitting on the other side of her.

"Please come to the party!" Taylor exclaimed trying to get Gabriella to go. "We can even go shopping and do each other's make up and other stuff!" she tried to convince her more.

"Okay fine!" Gabriella sort of shouted which got some of the surrounding tables to turn around and look at her. But the all turned around once the saw who it was ans who she was sitting with not wanting to start anything.

Meanwhile...Troy was only paying half of his attention to the conversation him and his mates were having because he was too busy eavesdropping on the girls' conversation and felt like jumping up and down at the thought of Gabriella going to the party tonight.

The girls walked triumphantly through Gabriella's front door arms filled with shopping bags. They were very successful in finding their outfits for later that night. (Outfits in profile…) Gabriella's mom wasn't home. But her big sister…Tara….was visiting for a little while. Just their luck…she was a fantastic hairdresser.

"Tara?! You here?" Gabriella called through the house.

"I'm right here, you don't need to scream!" Tara said walking out from the kitchen.

"Tara! Can you do our hair! We're going to a party tonight…and I want to make a good impression and-" she was cut off by Taylor.

"…and I can't do my hair to save my life." Taylor finished for her.

"Well…let's get started! When does the party start?" Tara asked them.

"Two hours." Gabriella said.

"Plenty of time. Let's go!" Tara ushered them upstairs.

An hour and forty-five minutes later…

"Wow! You guys look awesome! I knew you inherited my oh so wonderful shopping skills sis!" Tara exclaimed hugging Gabriella.

"Thanks for your help!" Gabriella called as she walked out the door.

The arrived at the house and the arty was in full swing.

"Ooh! There's Chad and Troy! Come on." Taylor said. Gabriella happily obliged and allowed Taylor to carefully pull her through the crowd.

Troy and Gabriella got to know each other a lot better after they snuck out onto the back deck.

"Do you have any siblings?" Troy asked her. They were sitting comfortably on a bench. Gabriella's head on his shoulder and his arm draped across her shoulders.

"One older sister who is actually visiting." Gabriella explained.

"You?" she asked him as she gazed up at the starry sky.

"A little sister whom I love to death. I don't know what I'd do without her." He said. Gabriella smiled.

"What's her name?" Gabriella asked him.

"Skye Joanne Bolton." He said.

"Aw! I love that name!" she exclaimed. Troy chuckled.

"What's your sister's name?" he asked her.

"Tara Maria Montez." She answered.

Taylor was looking out the window watching the scene unfold before her. She smiled as she saw Gabriella snuggle up to Troy more. Gabriella trusted him. And to Taylor, that's what was the most important thing in a relationship.

Taylor gasped slightly as she saw them share a kiss with each other and when they broke apart. She saw Troy's mouth moving. That was later followed by a nod from Gabriella who placed her head back on his shoulder. Taylor walked away from the window smiling.

(A/N: Just so you know…that little scene that you just 'witnessed' was Troy asking Gabriella that special little question…..)

Gabriella and Troy walked back in hand in hand and over to Taylor and Chad.

Taylor pulled Gabriella aside and began to ask.

"Did he…?" he asked her.

"Yes." Gabriela squealed quietly. "I-I have never felt so sure about something in my entire life! I mean…wow." She said.

"I'm happy for you." Taylor said as she smiled genuinely. Troy and Chad were holding a similar conversation, but less girly.

Troy walked Gabriella home an gave her another kiss at her door. Tara was peering through the window on the door and smiled unbelievingly wide as she jumped onto the rolling chair and it slid across the floor back to the computer and she made herself look busied on the computer even though she just witnessed something that she knew made her little sister extremely happy.

"Hey Tara!" Gabriella said as she ran up the stairs grinning like an idiot.

"Hi sis!" she called back to her. Gabriella had the best night of her life. Well, the best day of her life. She fell asleep a few hours later extremely excited for what her new life would bring her.
