Lying is the Most Fun...

Chapter 2

Sharpay looked around. She had nothing much to do now. Her room was dark. She heard a faint tapping sound on her door. She got comfortable in her window seat. "Come in." she said, faintly, staring out the window at the moon light and the stars. They were so much brighter here than in New Mexico. She sighed and turned her head towards the door. Meena proceeded towards her with a cup of hot chocolate in her direction. Sharpay smiled and took it. "What are you doing up? Making hot chocolate at 11 p.m?" Sharpay asked Meena. Meena shrugged. She really didn't know herself. Maybe the reason why was because she was eager to find out what'd happened during Newt and Sharpay's date.

"I was just wondering what happened during your date tonight?" Meena questioned, sitting on the windowseat next to Sharpay. Sharpay shrugged and pulled the hot chocolate cup away from her lips. It was perfect. Just chocolate-y enough but yet not too sweet or hot.

"Nothing much. We just went to the Liberry, had smoothies, went to his house, and then his limo driver dropped me off here." Sharpay told Meena. Meena sighed and rubbed one of her temples, holding the cup of her own hot chocolate in her other hand.

"You're not really going to do this are you? You're going to make him believe that you're just...Rich? When he'll find out you're not?" Meena asked, her Bahavian accent slipping through in spots. Sharpay shrugged. She didn't care too much about that. "I don't care. Look, Meena. He'll find out eventually about me and by then, he won't care." she sighed.

"Well, there is this big ball coming up at the White House. He might ask you to that. Make sure he finds out that you're not rich after that. That way at least you'll be able to say you went with a senator's son to a ball." Meena laughed. Sharpay spit out the hot chocolate in her mouth, resulting in a disgusted look from Meena as she looked down at her now wet blue pajamas.

"HE'S THE SENATOR'S SON?! AS IN THE LIVINGSTONS?!" Sharpay yelled. Meena nodded, almost forgetting about her pajamas.

"Yeah. He is. But he's not like most senator's sons. You know. You spent a whole night with him. Which I STILL want to know details about tomorrow during the limo ride to school in the morning." Meena said, standing up. "Good night, Sharpay. Don't let the cockroaches bite." Meena smiled.

"Isn't it bedbugs?" Sharpay asked, cocking her eyebrow.

"In Bahavia, it's cockroaches." Meena laughed and closed the door as she walked out. Sharpay laughed a little as she stared absentmindedly out the window and saw the stars twinkling. Maybe Washington, D.C. would be better than she thought.

XOXO

Sharpay woke up to the sound of Meena's voice. "Sharpay! Wake up!" she said. Sharpay looked over at her new friend. She groaned. "What do you want?" she asked groggily as she looked over at the clock. It was 2 a.m now. Great, Sharpay thought. Sharpay looked over at her with a glare.

"I couldn't sleep. Tell me about your date with Newt." Meena said, sitting on the edge of Sharpay's bed. Sharpay shrugged. "Not much happened." Sharpay informed her. Meena gave her a 'I-Know-You're-Lying' look. Sharpay sighed.

"Fine...Look, he took me to his house and...we made out. A LOT! And then his parents came home, so as soon as they went in their room I snuck out to the limo and left. Newt wanted to come with but I told him not to. And I felt like an idiot too!" Sharpay sighed, laying down in the bed. Meena felt sorry for her in a way.

"Why don't you just tell him? He really won't make a big deal out of it. I told you." Meena said.

"Never. If he finds out..." Sharpay sighed, "I don't know what I'll do." Sharpay shook her head and reached over for the cup of hot chocolate she'd been drinking earlier. It was still warn, since she'd warmed it up a while since she'd last fallen asleep.

"You really like him don't you?" Meena asked. Sharpay looked up at her and nodded.

"I really really do, Meena. He's the first guy that's ever felt the same way I felt about him." Sharpay said. Meena smiled.

"I'm glad that you're happy. I'll leave you alone now. But....how much did you guys make out?" Meena asked, curiously.

"A lot." Sharpay giggled. Meena laughed and walked out the door once more. "AND DON'T COME BACK!" Sharpay said, loudly as she shut the door.

XOXO

Sharpay giggled as she saw Newt that morning. She walked up to him and ruffled his light blonde hair. He smiled as he turned around. "Long time no see," he teased and leaned down to place a hard kiss on her lips. He pulled away with a smile that she returned. "So, how was your night? Did you sleep well? Think about a certain someone?" Newt muttered, getting close to her ear and gently placed a few small kisses near her ear and jaw. She giggled in excitement.

"Of course I did." she smiled. He smiled back and intertwined their fingers and walked ahead of her towards Science.

XOXO

Sharpay smirked. She was looking down at her science book--yes, hers; not the teachers--and wrote down a few words on a piece of paper. She gave it to Meena who gave it to Newt. He read the words on the small sheet and looked at her. It had said, 'Watch this.' Sharpay raised her hand. The teacher came over to her. She whispered something to him and he nodded. "Okay. I'm going to go over sexual reproduction again." the teacher said. Sharpay looked over at him and winked. He rolled his eyes at her, but kept a smirk on his face. He scribbled on a piece of paper something and sent it to her via Meena. She tried not to giggle as she read, 'Trying to tell me something, evans? wanna get freaky after school or something?' with a small smiley face with a tongue sticking out. She wrote under his writing. 'Only if you'll let me.' and sent it to him again. He looked over at her again and chuckled to himself. "We'll talk." he mouthed to her. She giggled a little and the teacher gave her a look.

"Sorry." she said, then looked back towards Newt and starting playing with her hair, absentmindedly, wondering if he was serious.

XOXO

Sharpay smiled. "Hurry up." she smiled and looked at him from the corner of her eye. "I don't have all day. I really have somewhere to go...Unless there's a distraction that I need to busy myself with?" she asked, looking at Newt again. She leaned over and kissed right where his neck and jaw met by his ear. He looked at her with a grin spread across his face.

"Well, no." he said, fixing the collar of his blue and green plaid button up shirt that was worn on top of a plain white long sleeve shirt. She frowned, but quickly changed it into a smile.

"Okay. God. How long does it take to get a book out of your locker?" she sighed, examining her nails. He glared at her teasingly and said quietly, "I'll show you...." He smirked and picked up Sharpay bridal style. He spun around a few times and she held him tight. She giggled and his name was briefly said, with small squeels around it. He set her down and she started to laugh less. "Fine." Sharpay said. "Take as long as you'd like." she smiled and leaned in for another kiss. He pulled her closer by grabbing onto her waist. She wrapped her arms around his neck and her fingers found their way to his blonde hair. She pulled away after a few seconds. "I think we have to get to class." she said with a small smile. He nodded and grabbed her hand as she walked with him to their next class.

XOXO

Sharpay looked around the Quad. There was not much to do right then. She was just sitting there when Newt sat next to her and ran his fingers through her long blonde hair. "Hey," he said and kept his arm resting on her back as he continued to run his fingers through the soft curls of blonde hair. "Look...I was wondering. There's some ball-y thing-y at the White House Friday and my parents want me to bring someone. Would you like to come with me?" Newt asked, raising an eyebrow curiously. She nodded and kissed him hard on the lips. They seperated at the sound of someone clearing their throat. Sharpay looked up to see Jason Stickler looking down at her.

"Uhh....Who the hell is he?" Sharpay muttered into Newt's ear. Newt sighed as he turned around and Sharpay did the same thing.
"Sharpay meet Jason Stickler. Don't bother telling him anything about you. He probably already knows everything." Newt muttered under his breath and wrapped his arm around her shoulders again. She rested her head against his shoulder.

"Why does he know everything about me?" Sharpay asked, wrapping her arms around his torso and burying her head into his chest. Stickler decided to take a chance and start to explain himself, instead of letting Newt do it.

"My dad runs the C.I.A. Agent Double-Oh-One." He said, with a smirk. Sharpay nodded, with a fake, yet polite smile drawn acrossed her face.

"That's great. I think Meena wants to meet me outside of school. BYE!" she said and quickly grabbed her purse and stood up. She leaned down and gave Newt another hard kiss. After a few seconds she pulled away with a smile that Newt couldn't help but return.

"Bye," Newt said, quietly as she walked away. Jason sat next to Newt.

"How'd you get her to...be your girlfriend?" Stickler said, in awe that Newt had gotten Sharpay to even consider him.

"Well, for one, I don't use gel that makes my hair look horrible and for two, no offense, but I'm like twenty times hotter than you." Newt said, grabbing his guitar case and swinging it over his left shoulder as he walked away from Jason.

XOXO

okay so there's supposed to be more of the story here but i can't think well, so this is the END of the chapter. the next one will be longer, but this chapter is sort of important since he asked her to the ball thing and because she meets Stickler who will play a HUGE role in the story, even though i didn't even seee this coming until a few weeks ago!
