Sonny with a Chance

Do You Chad? Do You Really?

Chapter 2: Underacts


"I'm not here."

"Yes you are. We can see you."

"Nobody's home."

"Oh yeah? Who else wears Hello Kitty socks?"

Tawni came in her bedroom with Nico, Grady and Zora behind her. They all smiled at her with support. Zora was holding a balloon with 'We're Sorry' written on it.

"Look, we're so sorry for what we did before." Nico said quietly.

"Yeah, even if you had a crush on the enemy, it's okay." replied Zora.

"Really? I mean, not that I really DO like him or anything." remarked Sonny.

"Sonny, I'm sorry and I admit, I was wr…rrr…wrooo…"

"Rebellious? Richter scale? Related to a hippo?" asked Grady.

Tawni gave Grady a glare and glance back at Sonny with a brave face.

"Wrrrong. I was wrong. YOU are in charge of your life. I'm not. Though, I am so in charge of your wardrobe from now on." she said.

"Aw. Group hug!" sighed Sonny.

Everyone gathered around her and tightly wrapped their arms around her. Soon, they heard a little yelp from inside the circle.

"Uh….guys? I…can't…breath…"


The next morning, Sonny picked up her ringing cell phone and answered it with a bubbly greeting.


"Hey, Sonny."

"Ch-Chad? Is that you? Your voice seems a little too high and girly today." she replied.

"Really? Ahem, how's this?" the voice answered.

It had lowered completely, and almost sounded like Chad.

"Uh, yeah. What's up?" she asked.

Chad sounded a bit nervous, which was almost too unlike him.

"Um, I need you to get down into Chad's--I mean, our set. Now. I need to tell you something." he said.

Sonny bit her lip and grinned.

"Sure! Okay, I'll be right down!"

She hung up and squealed to herself. Then she put on her best clothes and went downstairs to bolt to Stage 2, where Mackenzie Falls was. Before she opened the doors, she took a breathe and fixed her hair.

"Okay, Sonny. This is it. He going to tell me that he love-"

The doors opened as a swarm of Mackenzie actors came out, narrowing their eyes at Sonny and continuing their way. She shrugged with embarrassment and entered.

"Chad? Chad are you here? Hello?"

When she reached the set, her eyes widened with shock as she spotted Chad sitting on a chair. That wasn't what shocked her. Chloe, a fellow cast mate, had her lips all over his.


He didn't seem to notice, and still had his lips locked. Chad looked a bit red and surprised, though Chloe looked totally pleasant. Sonny backed away slowly, feeling tears in the corner of her eyes. Then, she ran away, covering her face with the sleeve of her jacket. She stopped when she reached the seat to her dressing table. Her body seemed weak and motionless, and just slumped onto the table. After a few minutes, she looked up and saw that her tears had fallen onto the photo of Chad, the one he'd signed when he'd planned to take over the Prop House.

To my biggest fan,

I'm sorry.

From TV's Chad Dylan C--

Sonny couldn't bare to read anymore as she felt more tears fill up her eyes. Tawni came in without noticing that Sonny was crying.

"Oh hey, Sonny, what's up?"

Sonny sniffed and turned around. Tawni screamed when she saw the runny mascara down her cheeks.

"Girl, what happened to you?" she said softly as she rushed to her.

"H-how c-could h-he?" she choked.

"Who? Who did this to you?" she asked.

Sonny sobbed some more as she elbowed Chad's picture to the floor, making the glass cover shatter into many pieces. Tawni looked worried, and for the first time, she took pity on Sonny. She knelt down to the broken ornament and picked it up.

"Chad…" she said quietly.

"CH-CHAAADDDDDD!!!!!!" wailed Sonny.

Tawni handed her a tissue, and grimaced when she loudly blew her nose, which seemed to take ages.

"Dank you, Dawni." she said with a blocked nose.

"Don't worry, Sonny. I'm going to show that little Mackenzie what he's messing with!"

"Dawni, I don'd doe wad I'd doo widout thou." murmured Sonny.

Tawni blinked twice and cocked her head to the side.

"Um…I don't have a clue what you've just said, but I'll do my best." she said.


Chad was laughing along with rest of his friends at their cafeteria table, which was posh and neat as always. Well, until Tawni pushed the dishes over to lean and glare at Chad.

"What did you do to Sonny?!" she exclaimed.

The Mackenzie cast looked horrified, but Chad was putting on a brave face.

"What are you talking about?" he asked.

"Don't give me that! She's moping and sobbing her eyes out as we speak, all because of something you did." she snapped.

"Whoa, whoa! First, stop leaning on our table. The linen will get ruined. And second of all, I have no idea what you're talking about." he said.

Tawni huffed, and grabbed his tie and dragged him out.

"Mind if I borrow him for a minute?" she asked.

"No! I do NOT!" exclaimed a girl.

Tawni turned around and recognised this girl as Chloe. She seemed pretty mad about her dragging Chad away, but Tawni didn't seem to care.

"Look here, posh girl! Some girls are just too important than anything right now! Well, except for me, of course!"

She continued to drag Chad out, while he cried out for help. When they'd finally reached Sonny and Tawni's dress room, they heard a wailing noise.

"Um, did you forget to feed your dog or something?" he asked awkwardly.

Without a word, Tawni opened the door, revealing Sonny cuddling herself on the floor, crying uncontrollably. Chad immediately ran beside her, but all that did was cry even more.

"Sonny! Sonny? Are you alright?" he asked.

Sonny just kept crying looking down at the floor so that her hair would hide her swollen eyes, pale face, runny mascara and bright red and sore nose.

"Is she alright? IS SHE ALRIGHT? What do you think, doof brain?" exclaimed Tawni.

"Look, Sonny. I have no idea of what I did, but I'm really sorry." he said softly, stroking her back.

Suddenly, she stopped crying. But she didn't look up. She took a sniff and wiped her nose and eyes.

"Why Chad? How could you?" she whispered.

"What did I do?" he breathed back.

She looked up, her face retrieving its colour and her blocked nose had come clear. Her eyes had somehow become less puffier.



Chloe had found where Tawni had taken him, and looked jealous that he was with another girl. He shut his eyes tight, expecting more tears from Sonny, but instead she stood up and clenched her fists.

"Her! Chad, h-how could you?"

"What?! Chloe?"

"YOU KISSED HER!" she exclaimed.

"What no I didn't!"

Tawni looked confused, whilst Chloe looked sly. Chad was even more confused and Sonny was hurt that he wouldn't admit it.

"Chad, just say it. I thought we had something. That night on Lookout Mountain. I thought that…you actually liked me. But, when you called me over to your set, all you wanted me to see was you with Chloe. I get it. It was just an act. And I fell for it. I just can't-"

"No, Sonny! I do like you! I would never do that to you, never! Chloe kissed me because she liked me, but I told her that it couldn't work, because I was in love with you. She set you up. She set US up." explained Chad.

Chloe looked shocked, then guilty.

"Y-you don't deserve someone like Chad, Munroe. I swear, he deserves someone like me. A Mackenzie." she said bravely.

"Well, maybe someday. But now, he's already got someone, BUSTER!" snapped Tawni as she pushed Chloe out, following her and shutting the door after her.

Chad and Sonny heard some screaming and shouted shortly afterwards, then they laughed.

"So, you really do like me?" asked Sonny.

"Well, I guess so. Do you want me to like you?"

"I don't know Chad. Do you Chad? Do you really?"

Chad stared right through her eyes, getting lost and seeking through the shadows. Sonny couldn't help but to smile and grasp his hand.

"Yes, really." he said softly.

They embraced as his lips found hers. Once again, they were back to where they'd always been. Together.
