Chapter 1: Verse 1
I don't think that passenger's seat
Has ever looked this good to me
He tells me about his night
And I count the colors in his eyes
He'll never fall in love he swears
As he runs his fingers through his hair
I'm laughing 'cause I hope he's wrong
I don't think it ever crossed his mind
He tells a joke, I fake a smile
That I know all his favorite songs
Ashley Tisdale was sitting on a bus bench just thinking. Thinking if she was taking the bus or just walking home, if she was going to call her mother when she gets home and mostly thinking of him. His amazing smile was enough to make a girl swoon, but God had to give him his bright blonde hair and shining blue eyes. God, she really likes him, anybody could see that, except him of course.
As she was thinking all of this, a shiny new black Mercedes Benz Roadster pulled up in front of her and the driver rolled down the window. She didn't notice him at first but then he called out to her with the voice that could make her cry and laugh at the same time.
"Hey Ash! Like my new car?"
She looked up and her face immediately brightened. She got u and walked over to the car.
"My my, Mr. Lucas Grabeel, haven't you traded up?"
"Well, my Oldsmobile broke down in the middle of the road the other day, so I decided it a time to get a new one. Wanna be my first passenger?"
She looked from the empty passenger's set to his expectant eyes. He looked at her as if he was pleading to her. She said nothing and turned her back to him and walked back to the bench. For a split second he thought she was going to take the bus, but he saw that she was just getting her things and he chuckled in amusement. A minute later, she got in the car, inhaled deeply and looked up to see him staring at her with confused eyes.
"What? You didn't think I was going to pass off an opportunity to ride in a new Roadster and not inhale the new car smell, did ya?" Ashley said as if it were the most obvious thing in the world.
Lucas laughed quietly at her crazy antics and said, "I have such a weird best friend."
Ashley snorted "You realize that now? I realized that about you a long time ago!"
She watched his reaction and laughed.
"What were you doing there anyway? You never take the bus!" Lucas exclaimed.
"Hey, I take the bus! Well, not recently. Anyway, I was there thinking because Jared and I broke up."
"Well, good for you! I knew you would come to your senses!" Lucas proudly said.
"Actually, he broke up with me."
"Oh… Why? Did he tell you?" he asked, curious.
"I think he did, but everything was a blur. There was all this fighting and yelling…"
She trailed off, yet she could distinctly hear a voice in her head, saying,
She and Jared didn't really have a fight, nor did they yell. It was a calm and understanding break-up, and she even remembers the reason Jared broke up with her, as if he just uttered it to her.
It was because of him, it always has been because of him.
"Well," His handsome voice interrupted her thoughts, "I hope you're happy Ashley. Anyway, I for one am never falling in love."
She whips her head to him and looks at him with disbelief, as he runs his fingers through his hair.
"Really? You don't want to fall in love? Ever?"
"Nope. I swear on my precious, brand new, unharmed Mercedes Benz Roadster, that I, Lucas Grabeel, am never falling in love."
He turns to her and smiles. Ashley turns her head back to the road and shouts, just in time.
"Luke! Watch Out!"
Lucas turns his attention back to the road and quickly swerved to miss a little boy on his bike and crashed right into a lamp post.
Groggily, he turns to Ashley, "Ash? Are you okay?"
"Yeah, I'm fine. Just a little dizzy."
They both got out of the wreck former known as a car and Lucas checked the damages while Ashley leaned against it and watched him as he did so.
"Oh man! The car is wrecked! Well, that's what you have insurance for!"
Ashley laughed. Lucas laughed along with her. He thought that she laughed at his omnipresent optimistic attitude, but she was laughing at the fact that he swore on his brand new, UNHARMED Benz. He might just actually fall in love, but with whom? Lucas took out his phone and called a local car shop an asked for a tow truck. After the phone call, Ashley took out her I-pod, stuck one earphone in her ear and handed the other one to Lucas.
"Ooh, could you play--"
"I'd Lie? Of course!"
She knew all of his latest favorite songs and every word in every line. As Taylor Swift's voice was heard, she closed her eyes. After the first verse, she realized that it was kind of her song to him. She heard him softly singing along, smiled and closed her eyes.
As the chorus played, she realized that she could sing this for him, with a few changes.
And I could tell you favorite color's blue,
He loves to sing his songs, born on the twenty third
His sister's beautiful, he has his father's eyes
And if you asked me if I love him, I'd Lie
