Later that day, Gabriella went into the bedroom where her husband Troy was lying in their bed, and asked,

"How are you feeling?"

"I haven't thrown up in a while and my stomach barely hurts," Troy answered.

"That's good," Gabriella said. "Stomach viruses usually go away quickly." She went over to him and kissed his


"Can I have more?" Troy asked Gabriella, looking pleadingly into her brown eyes just like she did when she

really wanted something and was too sweet to tell him to do something or ask in case she would sound mean.

Gabriella kissed Troy's cheeks a few more times, and then his forehead, which still felt warm. "Better?" she


"Thanks," Troy said to Gabriella, kissing her nose. "Your nose is so cute."

"Aw, you're so sweet," Gabriella said.

"Well that's because I love you. Very much."

"Love you, too. Now I have to go check on the kids." Gabriella kissed Troy's cheek one more time before she

left the room and went into the kids' room to check on them. When she went in, she saw they were both asleep, so

she left the room and went back to her husband Troy. "Guess what?" she asked. "The kids are sleeping so I get to

spend more time with you!"

"Do you wanna get in bed next to me?" Troy asked.

"Sure," Gabriella agreed, climbing onto the bed and immediately snuggling up to Troy.

"You know, you're really cute when you snuggle," Troy told Gabriella as he wrapped his arms around her and

kissed her cheek.

"Really?" Gabriella asked, snuggling further into Troy and smiling.

"Yes," Troy replied, cuddling Gabriella in his arms and kissing her cheek again.

"Remember when we first got married and we were jumping on the beds and stuff and then someone from the

hotel called and said there were complaints so then we had to settle down and wait till we got home to be loud?"

Gabriella asked.

"Yeah," Troy said.

"That was funny," Gabriella said. "Well it wasn't funny then but it's funny now." She laughed.

Troy started laughing, too. "I know." He gently stroked Gabriella's hair.

"Do you want some Jell-o?" Gabriella asked. "It's ready."

"If you wanna get me some that's fine," Troy told Gabriella. "But I don't wanna make you. I'm happy with


Just then, one of the babies started crying. "Well we'll have to stop snuggling now," Gabriella told Troy as she

slid out of his arms and went into the babies' room. Brie was crying. She got a bottle ready and fed her, then put

her back in bed. Then, looking at the clock and seeing it was one in the afternoon, she decided to wake her son

Troy up for his medicine. She gave it to him and he started crying. "I know it tastes bad," Gabriella said, "But

you have to have it." She got a bottle ready for him and gave it to him.

"Is everything okay?" the adult Troy asked from the bedroom.

"Yeah," Gabriella answered. "I gave Troy his medicine and now I'm giving him a bottle."


After Troy drank all he wanted from his bottle, Gabriella put him back in his crib and went into the kitchen to

get Jell-o for the other Troy. Then she went into the bedroom and gave it to him. "Here, Wildcat," she said.

"Since I was up, I decided to get you Jell-o."

"Thanks," Troy said, taking the bowl from Gabriella and sitting up so he could eat.

Gabriella put her hand on Troy's forehead and said, "You don't feel as warm now. You still feel a little warm,

but not a lot."

"I'm glad I'm getting better," Troy said.

"Me, too." Gabriella kissed Troy's forehead as she took her hand away from it.

"I love you," Troy told Gabriella.

"Love you, too," Gabriella said back.

"I hope both the kids get better," Troy commented.

"Yeah, me, too," Gabriella agreed. "And I hope you get completely better."

"You're so sweet," Troy told her.

At that moment, one of the babies started crying. "I'll be back, Wildcat," Gabriella said.

Troy quickly kissed Gabriella's cheek before she walked out of the room. "Okay."

Gabriella went into the babies' room and picked up Brie, who was the one crying. She held her, trying to get

her to stop crying. She had already had a bottle and her diaper changed, so she didn't know why she was crying.

"It's okay," she told her.

Brie kept crying.

Gabriella put her daughter back in her crib, went into the bathroom, grabbed a tissue, and went back into the

babies' room. She thought maybe Brie had to have her nose wiped. She picked her up again and used the tissue to

gently and carefully wipe her nose. Then she put her back in her crib, threw out the tissue, and went back to her

and Troy's room. "She needed her nose wiped," Gabriella said.

"Is she okay?" Troy asked.

"Yeah," Gabriella replied.

"You are so good with the kids," Troy told Gabriella.

"You are, too," Gabriella said.

"Well what help am I giving? I'm being lazy."

"No, you're sick. You're not being lazy. You have to get better, and I'm not mad at you at all."

"I know, but I just feel bad."

"Well try not to. I'm doing fine taking care of both you and the babies."

"You are so sweet."

"Thanks, Wildcat. You're really sweet, too."

"I love you."

"Love you, too. Now I'm gonna go and put some stuff in the washing machine, okay?"


Gabriella left the room, grabbed clothes that had to be washed, and put them in the washing machine. After

she got that started, she heard her phone ring. She answered it. "Hello?"

"Hi, Gabriella." It was Sharpay.

"Oh, hi Sharpay."

"So, how are you doing? Did you have your babies yet?"

"Yeah, they were born on Thanksgiving."

"Really? Can you send me pictures? I'm sure they're really cute!"

"Alright; I'll e-mail you some pictures of them soon," Gabriella said.

"Do they more like you or Troy?" Sharpay asked.

"Well Brie-that's our daughter's nickname so no one gets too confused-has my color eyes and Troy has Troy's

color eyes. Though Brie's eyes look more like Troy's, but just with my color. Troy has my nose and his dad's hair

color-we don't know if it's gonna be curly or straight yet. Brie has about my color-just a tiny bit lighter. I don't

know if she's gonna get curls like me or not yet," Gabriella replied.

"How are they doing?" Sharpay asked.

"Well both of them and my husband Troy are sick-they all have fevers, the baby Troy has an ear infection, the

other Troy is just getting over a stomach virus, so I'm the only one who's not sick."

"Wow, you must be busy."

"Yeah. I had to call my mom over to help with the babies once."

"If I lived up there I would help."

"Yeah, that would be nice. Troy and I are taking off college until after Christmas break. Then my mom is

gonna be watching the kids while we're at college and work and if she can't we'll have to get a babysitter,"

Gabriella said.

"So you took off work, too?"


"I hope you all get better," Sharpay said. "Oh, and guess what else I called about?"


"Zeke and I just got engaged last night!" Sharpay said excitedly.

"Really?" Gabriella asked.

"Yes!" Sharpay said.

"That's so great! Then when you have kids, our kids can play when we visit each other!"

"I know! I'm so excited! Though the wedding won't be until August and we're not planning to have kids right

away. You and Troy moved really fast with everything. You got engaged, got married six months later, and had

two kids in your first year of being married."

"Yeah, we did go pretty fast. So, where are you having your wedding?"

"At Lava Springs probably; I can get it for free there. I already looked at dresses, and I'm gonna have pink be

the wedding color and have a hot pink dress instead of a wedding dress."

"Is it gonna bo a big wedding or a small one?"

"In the middle. It's gonna be a more formal one, though, like dressing up formal."

"It's really great you got engaged, though."

"I know; I'm so excited! And you and Troy are invited to the wedding. You can bring the twins, too if you


"I might get my mom to watch them; I don't know how they would be at a wedding since they wouldn't even

be a year old yet. But you can see them sometime." Then she had an idea. "I know! Troy wanted to take me to

Hawaii for our first anniversary. We'll be leaving December 30. Would you like to come to our house and stay

there and watch the babies while Troy and I are on our vacation? We want it to just be us because we need some

alone time."

"I would love that!" Sharpay said enthusiastically.

"And Zeke can come, too if he wants. It would be December 30 till January 6."

"That sounds great!"

"And they do wake up during the night a lot, and they're a lot of work. Once Troy and I didn't sleep for two

days because of them."

"Well it'll be fine."

"Okay, are you sure you want to do it that long or do you want me to get my mom to watch them for some of

the time?"

"I can do it. College doesn't start until the tenth or something like that after break, so I'll be fine. It'll give me

practice for when I have babies."

"Though they're double the work," Gabriella reminded her friend.

"Yeah, I know. I should be fine," Sharpay said.

Just then, Gabriella heard one of the babies crying. "I'm sorry, but I have to go. One of the kids is crying. I'll

call you back tomorrow and we can talk more about you watching the kids, okay?"

"Okay. I'll talk to you tomorrow. Bye."

"Bye." After hanging up her phone, Gabriella went into the babies' room. Troy was crying, so she changed his

diaper and put him back in his crib. The, she went to see her husband Troy. "Wildcat, guess what?" Gabriella


"What?" Troy asked.

"Well Sharpay just called and her and Zeke got engaged last night," Gabriella told Troy.

"Really? I'll have to call Zeke and ask him about it sometime."

"Yeah. We're all getting married slowly. But you and me were the first ones to."

"I know. That's because we were the most in love," Troy told Gabriella.

"Yeah," Gabriella agreed. "And she invited us to the wedding already, which is in August."

"Did you say we would go?"

"Yeah, of course. Oh, and is it okay if her and Zeke come to watch the kids while we're in Hawaii?"

"Yeah, that sounds great."

"I love you, Wildcat."

"Love you, too."

"You know, I'm so happy that we're together. I'm so happy we have kids and I'm so happy we got married

when we did," Gabriella commented.

"Me, too," Troy agreed.

Both Troy and Gabriella knew that they would love each other forever-beyond forever actually. They had

promised to take care of each other at their wedding, and they would keep that promise. In the eleven months

they had been married, they had never once regretted it. And now they saw that their friends were also starting to

get married. They weren't upset anymore that they were getting older, because it didn't matter as long as they had

each other.

Take my hand, take a breath

Pull me close and take one step

Keep your eyes locked on mine,

And let the music be your guide

We'll keep dancing (to keep dancing) wherever we go next

It's like catching lightning the chances of finding someone like you

It's one in a million, the chances of feeling the way we do

And with every step together, we just keep on getting better

So can I have this dance (can I have this dance)

Can I have this dance

Take my hand, I'll take the lead

And every turn will be safe with me

Don't be afraid, afraid to fall

You know I'll catch you through it all

And you can't keep us apart (even a thousand miles, can't keep us apart)

'Cause my heart is (cause my heart is) wherever you are

It's like catching lightning the chances of finding someone like you

It's one in a million, the chances of feeling the way we do

And with every step together, we just keep on getting better

So can I have this dance (can I have this dance)

Can I have this dance

Oh no mountains too high enough, oceans too wide

'Cause together or not, our dance won't stop

Let it rain, let it pour

What we have is worth fighting for

You know I believe, that we were meant to be

It's like catching lightning the chances of finding someone like you (like you)

It's one in a million, the chances of feeling the way we do (way we do)

And with every step together, we just keep on getting better

So can I have this dance (can I have this dance)

Can I have this dance

Can I have this dance

Can I have this dance


Okay. The ending was really bad and the Can I Have This Dance thing was really random. I was gonna

end it when they all got better (don't worry-they got better after about a week), but then I decided it would

make it too long. I always hate the endings to my stories for some reason. But anyway, hope the ending

didn't disappoint you too much. This, as you probably know, is the end of this story. HSM7 will start after

a couple more stories-the prequel to Never Been Loved and a chapter story I didn't title yet. Here's the

summary for the prequel: No one likes Gabriella. Her mom doesn't like her and forces her to do

everything around the house, no one at school likes her, and she always gets made fun of. How does she put

up with it? Will she ever be able to leave her home? And here's the summary of the chapter story-if

anyone has title suggestions PLEASE tell me: After a tornado destroys their town, Gabriella and her mom

have to find somewhere to live. Troy's parents offered to let a few people who lost their homes stay at their

house and Gabriella and her mom go there since they have nowhere else to go. When Gabriella sees Troy,

she starts to get a crush on him. But he's always on the phone or around his girlfriend Sharpay and only

talks to her when necessary. Will he ever like her?
