INT. EAST HIGH CLASSROOM – DAY

A class full of kids sit waiting patiently for the bell to go so they can leave school, SHARPAY EVANS, 17, sits in front of her twin brother RYAN EVANS, 17, twirling her long blonde hair between her middle and index finger, She smiles pretending to listen to what their teacher is saying, Sharpay sighs as she looks to her left at the young man in the front row, TROY BOLTON, 18, yawns desperately trying to keep his head up and his eyes open as the teacher refuses to relent on her non stop rabble about her childhood days, Troy turns his attention to the back of the room where his close friend GABRIELLA MONTEZ, 17, smiles back at him.

"Hey Man what are we doing after school"

CHAD DANFORTH, 18, Troy's best friend since childhood says leaning forward awakening Troy from his near sleep state, Troy shook his head attempting to wake himself up as the teacher continued to droll on about subjects that would put an Insomniac to sleep, TAYLOR MCKESSIE, 18, looked down at her wrist watch waiting patiently for 3:30.

"I gotta get some food"

Chad said softly to Troy hoping that he would not catch the attention of the teacher who seemed totally oblivious to the fact that not only was no one listening but most people had dozed off or were just about to, Troy opened his mouth to reply but before he had the chance to put any sentence together a loud buzzing sound echoed through the school signalling the end of the school day.

Troy-

Another day down

A new one to be found

Things are looking up

No longer stuck in this rut

Gonna do my way

From here on out

Gabriella-

Im ready for the good times

Ready for some fun

Now that school is at an end

Can't help but wonder what's in store

Can't wait to see what's around the bend

Taylor-

Time for fun

Shout it out

Were number one

Be proud of it

All-

Never look back on what's just happened

Keep looking forward

Til the days end

And even then

We will stay positive

Cause we have it all

When were together

We have everything we need

For a good time…

Sharpay-

Time for fun

Credit cards

Shopping sprees

Brand new purses

All for me

Ryan-

A time for fun

Time to chill

And relax in the sun

Do what I will

Enjoy this life

Cause there's only one

Taylor-

Time for fun

Shout it out

Were number one

Be proud of it

All-

Never look back on what's just happened

Keep looking forward

Til the days end

And even then

We will stay positive

Cause we have it all

When were together

We have everything we need

For a good time…

CUT TO

INT. EAST HALL HALLWAY - DAY

All the Kids pilled out of their classrooms into the hallway Troy left with Gabriella, Taylor & Chad they all headed towards the exit as Sharpay stood and watched on as they all laughed and enjoyed themselves.

"Something wrong?"

Her brother Ryan asked as he emerged from the classroom with KELSI NEILSON, 17, by his side.

"No Nothing what would be wrong"

Was Sharpays defensive response as she tried to hide the loneliness that she felt as she watched everyone else with their friends and she was stuck with her brother.

"Sharpay here is the arrangement you wanted from me"

Kelsi said handing Sharpay a folder containing an arrangement for a song which Kelsi had written, the song had originally been intended for Kelsi's close friend Gabriella but Sharpay using her powers as the Co-head of the Drama club ordered Kelsi to transfer it into her Key and give it to her to perform at the annual East High winter musical.

"You see that wasn't so hard was it? Shall we go practice then"

Sharpay said as she began to walk towards the East high Music room.

"Actually, I can't"

Kelsi replied Nervously as Sharpay turned to the smaller girl and glared down at her.

"Excuse you?"

She said as Kelsi began to sweat under Sharpays gaze.

"It just I have somewhere to be"

"And where might that be?"

"Troy and.."

Kelsi had begun to explain to Sharpay where she was headed but as soon as Sharpay had heards Troy's name she knew it Kelsi had been invited along with the others the others who Sharpay had wished would invite her.

"Well fine whatever just go"

Sharpay said as she turned away from Kelsi and stormed off down the hallway.

"Come on Ryan!"

She commanded grabbing hold of her twins hand, Sharpay found herself unable to move her brother she turned to see Ryan who was standing in the same spot beside Kelsi.

"Actually sis I was kinda invited as well"

Sharpay at that moment felt an inch tall it seemed she was the only one excluded, She looked over at her brother and felt a rage inside of her like she had never felt before she clenched her fist and was ready to throw her body weight into the two people in front of her but instead she sighed and turned away believing it to be the only reasonable thing she could do.

"Fine then just go"

She said as Ryan and Kelsi slowly and cautiously left Sharpay alone in the hallway.

Sharpay-

This is not how it was meant to be

They are all off having fun

But what about me?

Everything im feeling inside

Lonely and lost

I just want to hide

I want to get off this rollercoaster ride

Maybe ill try

Another day

Maybe ill find

Another way

Maybe they'll see

That I can be real

And accept

The way that I feel

Someday they will understand

That I am who I am

I hope that they learn to see

That I am who I am

Everyday I try to be

Be what I just can't be

But I cannot be

What they need

What they want to see

What im not…

Suddenly I want to cry

Fall to my knees and let it all out

My tears hey will fall on their own

This is a side im yet to show

Nothing I do

Can change this now

I want them all to see

All that I am

I need them to feel it through

Think it to

Cause

I am who I am

Im just trying to fit in

I cant seem to get it right

Ill try just once

One more time

This time I know ill get it right

Maybe ill try

Another day

Maybe ill find

Another way

Maybe they'll see

That I can be real

And accept

The way that I feel

Someday they will understand

That I am who I am

I hope that they learn to see

That I am who I am

Sharpay entered the Girls Bathroom and looked at her reflection as a single tear rolled down her cheek.
