Hey! So sorry for not updating... again! Writers block is really annoying! Anyway, happy new year everyone :-) Please keep sending your ideas in for this story, they're all really helpful. Hope you like this chapter and I promise I will have the next chapter up soon. ENJOY!

Gabriella's entire body was shaking. Her tears had stopped a short while ago and now fear had taken over her. She was no longer in the car. Now, she was in a room by herself. There was no light but her eyes were slowly adjusting to the darkness and she could make out a few things like a chair in the corner of the room and an old looking radiator that looked like it was broken. She had no idea how long she had been in here for. It felt like hours, but maybe it had only been a few minutes. She didn't have a clue. Her hands were still tied, as were her feet and the gag was wrapped tightly around her mouth. She hadn't tried to escape. She was too scared of what might happen to her if Max or one of her other kidnappers caught her. She was already scared to death about what she knew Max was planning. Her stomach churned whenever she thought about it. Please God, don't let this happen. Anything but this... Gabriella thought to herself. She was one of the only girls in her year at East High who had still saved their virginity, and she did not want to lose it this way. She remembered back to the night of her sixteenth birthday, when she almost did exactly that...


Gabriella and Troy had been sitting in her bedroom for the past half hour talking, while the party continued downstairs in her living room.

"So, how does it feel finally being sixteen?" Troy grinned.

"Hmm..." Gabriella pretended to think, "Pretty much the same as it did being Fifteen."

She and Troy laughed, and then a short comfortable silence fell between them.

Troy gently took Gabriella's hand kissed it, then looked into her eyes.

"You look beautiful tonight." He said, almost in a whisper.

Gabriella blushed and turned her face away so that he wouldn't notice. However, she felt his hand on her chin and he gently turned her back round to face him. He ran his thumb softly over Gabriella's bottom lip, before bringing her closer to him and joining their lips. Gabriella kissed him back and wrapped her arms around his neck. Troy wrapped his own arms around her waist and brought her even closer to him again. Gabriella smiled against Troy's lips as she felt him deepen the kiss. After few minutes into the kiss, Gabriella felt herself being lowered onto her back so that she was now lying on her bed. This made her feel slightly uncomfortable, but she said nothing. But then she felt Troy's hand move up her top and she gasped, pushing his hand away.

"No, Troy please don't."

Troy moved his hand away immediatley.

"Baby what's wrong?" He asked.

"Troy, I know I'm sixteen now, b-but I'm still not ready. Not yet anyway." Gabriella replied quietly, lowering her head so that she didn't have to look at him.

"I'm s-sorry. I just..." She was about to try and explain, when Troy cut her off.

"Gabi baby, you don't have to explain anything to me. I totally understand and respect the fact that you still want to wait. I will never force you into doing anything that you don't want to do. We don't have to do anything until you're sure you want to."

Gabriella smiled warmly at him. She knew he meant what he had said and it was comforting knowing that he respected her desicions.

"Well my lovely, it seems we've both forgotten all about a certain party downstairs that's yours so we should probably be getting back." Troy grinned, before picking up Gabriella, bridal style and carrying her back downstairs to join everyone else at the party.

End Flashback

Since that night, Gabriella had known that when the time did come, she wanted to share it with Troy. He was the right person that she had been saving it for. But now Troy was dead, and Gabriella was in a real life nightmare. She still couldn't believe that she was never going to see him again, even if by some miricale she escaped. Just then, there was a creak and Gabriella snapped her head round to the door. Max was there. He quietly shut the door behind him and locked it, then moved over to the bed and sat down on it infront of Gabriella.

"Still upset about your boyfriend sweetheart?" He asked quietly.

Gabriella did nothing. A single tear fell from her eye. Max's rough thumb wiped it away.

"Don't worry," Max whispered.

The next thing she knew, Gabriella felt Max's lips on her neck as he began kissing and sucking it. Gabriella whimpered in disgust but was frozen in fear so she didn't even struggle.

"I'll make you forget all about him." Max mumbled against her neck.

His hands began to move all over her body, and then she did try to get him away. But it was no use.

"I really wouldn't do that if I were you Gabriella." Max said, his eyes shifting to the chair in the corner of the room.

Gabriella squinted her eyes, and realised there was a gun on the chair.

"It'll take me no time to get that gun if you don't stop struggling." Max threatened.

"I had no problem with killing your boyfriend, but I really would hate to put a hole in that pretty little head of yours. You won't make me do that will you?"

Gabriella kept her eyes on the gun for a few seconds, before lowering her gaze and closing her eyes.

"Good girl."

And with that, Max began taking off his shirt and trousers. Then he began undressing Gabriella. All through him doing this, and then the horrible event that followed, Gabriella cried and tried to imagine she was somewhere else. With Troy.

And there is chapter eight. I will try and have the next one up soon. I know this chapter was kinda horrible cause of what happened to Gabriella so I added a little troyella flashback lol. Keep sending ideas and... REVIEW! xXx

Oh, and for everyone who has read my other story 'Goodbye' I think I'm gonna make it longer than just a one-shot cause so many people have said I should continue it, but I need your help. I have two ideas of how I will continue it and I need you to decide for me!

1: Just a cute little reunion where either Troy goes to Paris and finds Gabriella and discovers something (I know what it'll be but I don't want to give it away! hehe it's something sad though, that's your only clue!) that helps him bring her back to Albuquerque with him.

2: Troy goes to London on a school trip with Chad, Taylor, Sharpay etc, and he discovers that Gabriella is now living there cause her mum got transfered (again!). However, he also discovers that she has a new boyfriend, but he hits her and doesn't treat her properly. Troy is only in London for a week and only has that amount of time to save Gabriella.

Idea 1 will mean the story will just have one more chapter. Idea 2 will probably make the story a bit longer. Vote which idea you want, but do it in a review in 'Goodbye' and not this story if you get what I mean lol. I'll count the votes when I get enough in and the winning idea will get written.
