It was a cold but pleasant day in Albuquerque, New Mexico. The wind blew harshly against people's faces, leaving reddened skins behind. Couples stood under the dark sky, waiting for the New Year's Day fireworks to start. They all held hands and kissed occasionally to show how much they love one another. Sharpay Evans walked to the bench hand in hand with Troy Bolton, her boyfriend of one year. They had gotten together after Gabriella Montez had mysteriously broken up with Troy after their summer at Lava Springs. She had gotten together with Ryan Evans, Sharpay's twin brother. Afterwards, Troy confessed his feelings to Sharpay.

"Isn't it a great night, Troy?" Sharpay asked as she snuggled with him. She put her arms around him for warmth and put her head under his chin. She loved him in every way. She knew she couldn't deny her feelings for him. They haven't said "I love you" to each other yet, but she knew she wants to. But she just isn't sure if he's ready. All she knew was that he was the right one for her. He changed her personality, melting the ice in her. She had become a fun-loving person whom everyone loved, especially Troy. He helped her become a better person.

Troy nodded in response, wrapping his arms around her small waist. "It's a very special night," he agreed. "We're starting a new year. It's gonna be a great one, too." He looked at her, smiling brightly. Even in the dark night, he could see her brown eyes sparkling with delight and love for him. He knew what his feelings were for her; he just didn't know the right time to tell her. All of his friends have started dating and have passed the "I love you" stage after weeks of dating. But Sharpay was different. He loved her so much; he never wanted to let go of her the moment she was in his arms.

"Why is it gonna be great?" she asked. "We're almost becoming seniors, we have lots of exams when we get back to school, and lots of things to take care of for when we think about college." She looked at him. She couldn't help but smile when she saw him grinning at her.

"Well, I have you with me through the entire year, don't I?" he asked, kissing her head softly. "That's all I need to know that it's gonna be awesome." He looked up at the dark sky and saw multiple stars shining brightly. "I didn't get a chance to say you look beautiful today," he added.

She blushed slightly. "Thank you, baby." After a year of dating, he still had an effect on her. He's always had the power of making her smile and laugh whenever he wants to. "You look pretty stunning yourself," she said, kissing his cheek soundly.

He smiled down at her and leant his head down to capture her soft, pink lips in a passionate kiss. She wrapped her arms around his neck as he pulled her onto his lap to make it easier to kiss her. They poured their emotions into that one kiss. They shared their feelings through it, telling each other how they felt. Love and passion was something they've always had and known they've always had. Lust was never there, but Troy has thought to himself that if he would make love to someone, it would definitely be Sharpay. Sharpay ran her hands through his hair swiftly, loving the feeling of him so close to her. She ran her hands over his cheeks, down to his chest, and wrapped her arms around his abdomen to pull him even closer. He broke away from the kiss, but crushed his lips onto hers once again after a take of a huge breath. Sure he needed some oxygen, but when it came to Sharpay, he didn't care about breathing; he can't stay away from her.

Sharpay pulled away softly, pecking his lips a couple of times before laying her forehead on top of his. "You amaze me, Troy Bolton," she whispered into the air between them.

He kissed her nose. "I know," he whispered back teasingly. He smiled as she playfully punched his chest before resting her small hands on it.

"Look," she said, pointing to the sky. "The fireworks are starting!" Sharpay shifted on Troy's lap, turning around to look at the now bright sky. Troy wrapped his arms around her waist and pulled her closer to his chest. He watched her as her eyes lit up more and more when she saw more fireworks appear in the sky. She looked like a little girl who has never been happy before. It made him so happy to see her so content in her entire life, and it was all because of him.

He entered her life when he had spent time with her at Lava Springs. His friends thought that he hated Sharpay. He never did. The more time he spent time with her, the more he loved her. When he was with Gabriella, people thought it was definitely love. But they were obviously wrong. His relationship with Gabriella was a high school fling; puppy love. With Sharpay, it was the real thing. It was truly love for him. Everyone could see it in his eyes. Every time he saw her, it was like she was the only thing he could see. She lit up the room every time he sees her. She was special.

"Troy?" Sharpay poked his nose gently, giggling at her boyfriend's face. "Are you alright?"

He nodded and grinned at her. Troy looked at his watch and back at Sharpay's amused face. "It's time for the countdown," he told her. She clapped her hands happily and laid her head on his chest and wrapped his arms around him. He kissed her forehead before tucking her head under his chin.

Every couple held hands and started counting down to the New Year they anticipated.

"10….9….8…." Troy looked at Sharpay who had a big smile on her face. Her cheeks were red and her lips still looked soft even in the cold weather. Her hair blew behind her shoulders, and she sometimes grabbed them and put them behind her ears.

"7…6….5…." Sharpay looked at the wonderful image in the sky. It was filled with bright colors to illuminate the dark, gloomy sky. Her year had been wonderful. She had become friends with the Wildcats, become one of the most loved people at East High, but mostly, she won Troy's heart. That was all she needed to make her year a wonderful one.

"4…3…2…." Troy grabbed Sharpay's face gently and brought her lips to his. She turned around and wrapped her legs around his waist. He held her tightly, letting her warmth comfort him.

"1… Happy New Year!" Everyone cheered as the New Year began. Couples hugged and kissed happily. They screamed and shrieked about what's happened so far in the past year, happy to forget about all of it.

Troy and Sharpay were still kissing on the bench under the now starlit sky. Sharpay broke away from the kiss and smiled at him, panting heavily. "Troy," she began, stroking his hair away from his face. "I love you." She took in a huge breath as she waited for him to respond.

His face was shocked. His mouth was slightly open and his eyes were wide, staring right into hers to see if she was lying to him. "Really?" he squeaked out. He cleared his throat and whispered, "You love me?"

She nodded, still smiling at him. "Troy, it's a new year, and I decided it's time for you to know my true feelings for you. I've loved you ever since we got together, even before that. The point is that I love you." She kissed him lightly, waiting for his response.

He did respond to her light kiss, turning it into a loving kiss. "I love you, too," he whispered before burying his face in her blonde locks. "You mean the world to me, and I never want to let you go," he said quietly into her hair before kissing it.

Sharpay pulled her head away from his chest to kiss him. He deepened the kiss, forcing her mouth to open and let their tongues fight for dominance. He won.

"I love you," they whispered at the same time. Then, they wrapped their arms around each other tightly as they watched the sky fill with luminance again. They couldn't be happier than they were now. They had confessed their feelings and had felt the same way. What a wonderful New Year's Day it was for Troy and Sharpay.
