"Alright ladies and gentle men, this is it. This is said to be the night that Troy Bolton does it all. Leading his team to a victory. Now we have watched Troy play for awhile now, since college. He is a very good player. Then he had the accident a few years ago that sent him back, but he over came it. For a 25 year old he is unstopable." The sports announcer told the folks at home.
"Thats right Ted. Every game he plays, he amazes me more and more. This kid is probably the best player I have seen in a long time." The other announcer said. It was the last game of the regular season. This game will have them set for there ranks for next year.
"Alright guys. 30 seconds left. We can do this. We still have a lot of time." Troy told his team on the court. He looked over at Chad who was next to him. After Troys first year he introduced them to Chad, and they signed him right away. The dream of being in the NBA together finally came true.
"Alright men lets do this." Chad clapped his hands and ran back out on the court ready for the final play.
Gabriella and Taylor stood in the stands, the nervous wifes they were. Chad and Taylor married just a few months ago. Of course Gabriella was the maid of honor and Troy the best man. The same exact wedding party as Troy and Gabriellas wedding. They decided to do that for all the weddings. It was now a tradition. Gabriella was a lot more nervous then Taylor was. The last time they played a final game, or for college it was the championships, Troy got hurt. She wasnt there. She hasnt missed a game since. She was also excited because tomorrow morning they leave for New Mexico. They live there in the off season.
"15 seconds left. Can they do it people?" The annoucer came over the auditorium.
"Come on Troy." Gabriella whispered under her breath.
"10 MORE SECONDS PEOPLE. DANFORTH PASSES TO BOLTON. BOLTON BACK TO DANFORTH. 5 SECONDS PEOPLE." The annoucer shouted.
"BOLTON HAS THE BALL. HE SHOOTS." The ball flew threw the air and landed gently in the basket. "LAKERS WIN LA WINS!!" The team came running from the bench to the caption and the coach. Gabriella and Talyor tried to make their way through the crowd of excited people in the stands to make their way down. They finally got to the sercurety guard at the end of the steps. Since it was family they had the VIP badges that they showed and he let both the girls through. Gabriella and Talyor ran through the crowd on the floor. People going crazy. Gabriella couldnt even think with all the noise.
"TROY!" She yelled through the mob of people. She pushed through and finally spotted number 18. She touched his shoulder so he knew she was there. He turned around and pulled her towards him.
"Look at you, you're all sweaty." Gabriella said running her hands down Troys huge muscles. She smiled and looked back up at him. "You did so well babe, Im so proud of you. Come here." She grabbed his jersey and pulled him into her. The team whooped and cheered as they had their little make out secssion.
"Alright. Shows over." Troy told his team and they all headed back to the locker room. Troy turned back to his wife.
"Im going to be really quick I promise. Plus you know I have to celebrate with my girl." Troy whispered into her ear. She put her arms around his neck.
"Well you know what else needs to be celebrated dont you?" Gabriella looked back at Troy.
"Of course how could i forget. Its our 2 year anniversery." Troy told his wife. Gabriella giggled.
"I dont know how any one can." She told him flirtasioulsly.
"Well when you put it that way." He leaned down and kissed her again. "10 minutes I promise."
"Im holding you to that." Gabriella called back to him. He turned around and smiled.
Troy had made reservations for 10:30 at their favorite restruant in LA. Gabriella found in last year when they first moved there. They now had two homes. In LA they just decided to get a little appartment. It was just the two of them, then they had the huge house in New Mexico, which was their real home.
They were seated right away and got looking at the menu. Gabriella already memorized the menu since she had been here so many times. It was her favorite place to come, when she could find the time, she was usually working. After they got married, they were in New Mexcio and got the house ready the way they wanted it, then flew out to LA and look for a little cheap appartment that they only had to live in for a few months at a time. And since Gabriella had her LA job before she moved back home, she worked there when she was in LA, and that the Alberquerqe one when they were home. Gabriella loved that Troy was persuing his dream, but she wished that they could just stay in New Mexico, it would be just a solid place for them to live, no traveling.
"Babe?" Gabriella came back from her day dream.
"What do you want to drink?" Troy asked her. She looked at the back of the menu at the wines they had. She loved Luna de Luna (dont own) They had that wine at her wedding and that was her favorite drink ever since.
"Can we get Luna de Luna?" She asked.
"I knew you were going to say that." The waitor came over and took their order then left. Just Troy and Gabriella. It was slow for a Saturday night at 10:30.
"So, you excited to go back home?" Troy asked.
"You have no idea. I miss my mom. Actually I havent talked to her in a while. Few days. Its kinda wierd." Gabriella said looking at her phone to see if she had any missed calls. The only ones where the ones from Sharpay on her wedding details. Her and Zeke were getting married next month and Gabriella made the mistake of telling her that she would help plan.
"You worry to much. Hey," Troy said reaching over taking away her I phone. "None of that. No work, no family, no friends, just you and me ok?" Troy asked. Gabriella smiled. Her and Troy havent had a night together in a long time. He has been busy with basket ball, her with work, it was hard to juggle their marriage, but of course they made it work.
"So what else are we going to do tonight?" Troy asked taking a sip of his wine that the waitor had dropped off at the table.
"Well, I dont know. Maybe something dirty." Gabriella told Troy winking at him.
"Oh dont tease me Gabriella." He joked with her.
"Im being dead serious. I dont even remeber the last time we..."
"Stop it." Troy told her.
"What I am being real here. Honestly when was it?" She asked him. He couldnt even remember. He gave her a blank stare.
"You see exactly." Gabriella said pointing a finger at his face. They both laughed.
"Hey Troy?" She asked.
"Yeah." He looked her in the eyes.
"What is the next faze for us?" She asked him. This question had been floating in her head for a long time now, and she wanted a answer.
"Well I dont know. I mean we have our jobs and stuff. What are you trying to get at here?" He asked her. He was now confused.
"Nothing. Nevermind. Forget I brought it up." She took a sip of wine and looked around the restrauant aimlessly. She opened the door, now it was not going to get closed for a long time.
"Gabriella." Troy started off. He knew something was bothering her. She just looked at him.
"Its nothing Troy. Oh look foods here." Saved. They ate their food in silence. This was not the night Gabriella imagined it. She should have never opened her mouth in the first place.
After dinner they headed out and walked back to their appartment which was only a few blocks down. Troy reached for Gabriellas hand and she took his. She put her head on his shoulder as they walked back. When they finally got back to the appartment Troy closed the door and leaned Gabriella against it.
"I love you." He told her.
"I love you to." She told him. Lips touching his, she wrapped her legs around his waist and he walked her back to the little bedroom. He leaned her gently onto the bed and they started to throw each others clothes off.
Troy laid next to Gabriella in bed under the covers. He gently rubbed her arms. It was a long night and Gabriella wanted to sleep, but because she opened her mouth she knew that that question was going to come back up.
"Can you tell me what is going on with you?" Troy asked her softly. Gabriella rolled over to face Troy then pulled her body against his. She put both of her hands of his bare back and rested her head on his chest. He engulfed her body by putting his arms around her to. She felt so safe in his arms. Nothing could break or hurt her.
"What do see us doing next year?" She asked him. She looked up into his big blue eyes.
"I see us both fuffuling our dreams completely. Me and You being happy together. Why what do you see?" He asked her.
"I see those things and something else." She squeezed her eyes shut. This was not going to go over well. She just had a bad feeling about it.
"And that would be..."
"Its something tiny. has little hands and feet." She whispered.
"Gabriella..." Troy sat up and turned the light on. Gabriella pushed the fly ways out of her face and sat up facing Troy. She pulled the sheets around her body. She just looked at him.
"Why?" Was all he asked.
"I have this empty feeling in my heart. And only that thing can fill it. Troy we have everything. We have the fame, a nice house, great friends, theres just that one thing missing." Gabriella explained. Troy took a deep breath. He didnt say anything.
"Come on, say something." She nugged him.
"What do you want me to say?" He asked. This thing that was missing, he didnt think would happen for another year or two.
"I want you to tell me what you think of all this." Gabriella started to get upset.
"Gabs, our lives are crazy right now. Do you really want to bring a baby into all of this?" He asked looking into her chocolate brown eyes.
"Troy. We are 25 years old. I know you just as well as the next person. I know you want this too..." Gabriella told him. Troy got up out of bed and put some boxers on and walked out of the room.
"Hey wait a minute." Gabriella got out and threw on a baggy t-shirt. "Troy. Where the hell are you going?" She followed him out to the living room. Their suitcases were all packed up and ready to go for a early flight. Troy went over and opened one of his suitcases and pulled something out and handed it to Gabriella.
A baby LA Laker Jersey. She turned it around. Number 18. Gabriella laughed and looked back up at Troy.
"Where did you find this?" She asked. She ran her fingers down the yellow gold and purple jersey.
"A few days ago. I didnt even know my number was on the back of these things." Gabriella laughed. "I had to buy it."
Gabriella looked back up to Troy.
"I love it Troy." She told him looking into his eyes. Troy walked towards her and pulled her into a hug.
"I want the same thing to, but the timing right now is not that great." Troy told her.
"Not that great? Troy we are going to be home for half a year. Its the perfect time." She pulled out of his grip and started walking back to the bedroom.
"Gabs. Are careers are are just taking off right now. I really dont need a baby messing that up for me!" He said to her.
Gabriella turned around with tears in her eyes. Troy knew that he shouldnt have said that.
"Where are you going?" Troy asked helplessly.
"To bed!" She slammed the door while Troy made himself comfortable on the couch not even bothering to go and try to fix what he said. He knew she wouldnt buy it. Not for a second. He did want a baby. Just not right now. His career is just taking off and everything and he didnt want to have to think about being a parent. Maybe it was just something that he could sleep on and worry about in the morning.
Gabriella stirred around in her bed. She leaned over to the nightstand. 6:30. She groned and rolled out of bed. Troy was in the shower so she just threw her hair up in a messy bun and threw on some sweats. Their plane was leaving at 9:00 so they had to leave soon anyway. She wasnt in the mood to try and pick out a nice outfit. Troy came out of the bathroom with a towel around his waist.
"Hey." He said as he walked over to the dresser.
She didnt say anything. He sighed and got dressed. Gabriella called Taylor and Chad and told them that they will meet them there in a half hour. They got their things and put them in the taxi. The ride there was silence.
"Are you going to talk to me?" Troy asked.
"God I dont know. You think a kid is a bad thing and well I think it will bring us closer so yeah maybe I will talk to you." Gabriella threw the cab door open and got her bags out of the trunk and walked through the automatic doors to find Taylor and Chad, without waiting for Troy.
"Gabriella!" She heard a voice and turned around to find Taylor and Chad waiting for them in the rows of seats by the window.
"Hey." Gabriella put her bags on the ground and took a seat in front of them. She pushed the fly aways out of her hair.
"How did the dinner go last night?" Chad asked looking at the sports page drinking coffee.
"Perfect." Gabriella said scarcastically. Just then Troy came over and sat down.
"Thanks for waiting for me babe." He said finall able to eat the beagle in his hand.
"Anytime honey." She said scarcastically again. Taylor and Chad just looked at each other and they knew something was up. They were fine when they left them last night. What could have possibly happen in 15 hours?
"First call for flight 49 to New Mexico now boarding." The announcer called. The four friends stood up and walked to the gate. Gabriella had her carry on bag and checked her other bags. Troy did the same. They got into first class seats and Gabriella looked out the window. Troy put his hand on top of hers but she pulled it away.
"Gabriella what I said last night." Gabriella cut him off.
"Honestly, I really dont want to hear it." Gabriella pulled her hands inside her long sleeve shirt. She always did this when she was upset.
"I do want a baby." He told her.
"Well last night it didnt seem that way." She snapped. Chad noticed that Gabriella looked upset so he tapped Troy on the shoulder and mouthed. Whats wrong. Troy mouthed back not now.
"I do. I was just being selfish. I wasnt thinking. I didnt think this would happen for another year or so."
"Troy Im not saying Im having a baby right now. I just have this place inside my heart that needs one." She looked into those big blue eyes again.
"I really dont feel like fighting with you right now. Lets just deal with this when we get home." Gabriella was tired and wasnt up to putting up with this. She just layed her head on Troys shoulder and tried to fall asleep.
