SUMMARY: Relationships & friendships flourish & falter amidst the pressures & challenges of life. A hopefully original take of senior year. All characters; TxG CxT

DISCLAIMER: I do not claim to be responsible for the creation of this brilliant set of characters. I just play with them. And make them act out my kinky fantasies.

AUTHOR'S NOTE: Okay as promised... here is a bit of a retarded preview... I was going to write it a bit more effectively like a book jacket but copped out and just copied some sentences from what I've already written/planned to write. Haha.

A PREVIEW...

... ... ... ... ... ...

Summer is drawing to an end, and our favourite Wildcat crew are facing the prospect of beginnig their senior year of high school.

"We are seniors. The home stretch is here. In nine months we'll be graduating. At school assemblies we get to sit at the back. We can go OFF CAMPUS for lunch. We have a half day on Thursdays," Chad said.

... ... ... ... ... ...

The life of a seventeen year old is dramatic enough, dealing with siblings, friends, relationships and parents.

... ... ...

"I don't think I could physically get through this year without you with me," Troy responded softly. He leaned over and pressed his lips softly to hers. "I wish I could change everything that happened over summer but I can't."

"We can just learn from it," Gabriella said quietly. "And... I think it all turned out for the best. Because now I know just how much I need you."

... ... ...

"Hey Tay?" Chad asked softly.

"Yeah?"

"You know how you told me that you didn't want me to act like Troy? And that you wanted me to act like Chad?"

"Yeah?"

"Would you find it inappropriate if, as Chad, I wanted to kiss you right now?"

... ... ...

"I'm so glad we started hanging out," Gabriella commented to Ryan. "It seems so silly that we hardly talked last year."

"I don't know if Troy would agree," Ryan remarked.

Gabriella made a face. "Ry, if I can tolerate the girls at school fawning all over him; and if I can tolerate him being really close friends with people like Paula – then I think he should be fine with you and I being friends."

... ... ...

"I miss this. You and me. Rehearsing together. Hanging together. I don't think we've sat in the same room alone for longer than five minutes in... in over a month," Ryan said.

"Well YOU'RE the one who is never around," Sharpay said haughtily.

"Sharpay, it's nothing personal against you," Ryan said, trying to reason with her.

"Well if feels personal, okay?"

... ... ... ... ... ...

While coping with the stresses of their personal lives, there are added challenges instrinsic to senior year, with extra curricular activities, college applications and teachers.

... ... ...

"Gabriella, this scholarship is a once in a lifetime opportunity!" Taylor exclaimed.

... ... ...

Kelsi was becoming desperate, turning to Gabriella. "Please tell me you're going to audition."

Gabriella bit her lip. "Ummm, well, I was thinking I wanted to. But, umm..."

"Without Troy she doesn't want to," Chad finished the sentence.

Gabriella sighed. "That is a very simplistic way of expressing it but... I guess."

Kelsi was looking close to tears. "I spent half my freaking summer writing this script for you guys!"

... ... ...

"How would you feel if I nominated you for class president?" Gabriella asked, crossing her fingers.

... ... ...

"The playoffs are just weeks away, and here you are flunking out of school and getting yourself banned from basketball? What the hell is wrong with you?" Coach Bolton exclaimed.

... ... ... ... ... ...

Not to mention...

... ... ...

"Gabriella you keep talking about what Troy is thinking and feeling – how do you feel about it?"

Gabriella bit her lip. "How do you know when you're ready?"

Taylor thought for a moment. "You just... feel it. I can't explain it in any other way. It feels right."

Gabriella nodded. "I think... I think it's right. I mean… I'm not ready to go all the way, not just yet. But maybe soon. When we're together and he's kissing me… I always want more. Yesterday, I really really really wanted more.

... ... ...

The make out session afterwards was pretty hot," Troy added slyly. "But her mom walked in on it."

"Ouch."

"Yeah. It could have been worse. She didn't throw me out. She invited me to stay for dinner actually. I think she just wanted us to come downstairs," Troy mused.

"You reckon it would have gone further if she hadn't walked in?"

Troy shrugged. "Dunno."

"Would you have tried something?

"Dunno."

Chad rolled his eyes. "You're hopeless."

If this sounds like it's up your alley and you want to motivate me to just start posting the damn thing instead of talking about it, I suggest that some reviewing loving might do the trick. I'm such a review whore. Speaking of reviews, my Chad/Taylor one shot went up so if you haven't already, go check it out and review please :-P
