Gotta Stay With You

Summary: Troy stops Gabriella from leaving. Picks up from right after Gabriella breaks up with Troy, so right after she sings "Gotta Go My Own Way."

Troy Bolton knew that if he let Gabriella get in that van, he would regret it for possibly the rest of his life. He ran across the bridge and right to Gabriella. "Gabriella! Wait!" He shouted and she turned around. He ran to her.

"What is it, Troy?"
"Look, I know I've been a jerk. A big jerk. But I can't let you leave."

"Give me one good reason why I should stay."
Troy took a deep breath. "Because… because I love you."
Gabriella's jaw dropped. Then she started to cry. Troy held her close and kissed the top of her head. "I'm so sorry, Gabby. I never meant to hurt you. I didn't want you to cry. I just wanted you to know before you left."

Gabriella moved away from Troy and wiped her tears. "You really love me?"

"More than anything in the world. Please Gabby, take me back. Don't leave. I'll go back to my cooking job, I'll do anything to get you back."
"Anything. Whatever you want. I'll do it. Just name it."

"Apologize to the gang."
"Done. Anything else?"
"Yeah. Kiss me like I've never been kissed before."
"I can do that."
Troy pulled her closer and kissed her with everything he had. Gabriella returned it with everything she had. They walked hand in hand back inside, suddenly knowing everything would be okay.
