Chapter Two: Who’d Have Believed
Let me start by saying, Happy New Year. I’m not quite sure why I’m up so early today. Maybe it has something to do with Troy Bolton. He said he was going to call me, but I’m not really a sit around and wait for my phone to ring kind of girl, so I’m going to be searching the lodge and waiting for the phone to ring instead. I can’t wait to see him today. I’m not sure that we’ll be hitting up any karaoke spots, but I’d really like to get to
know some more about him. We only talked for a little while last night, and that conversation was pretty much monopolized by our singing together, so it’ll be kind of cool to get to know him on more of a personal level. I just wish mom would wake up so we could go to breakfast already.
He didn’t call, and I didn’t find him. I searched everywhere too. My mom asked me what I was looking for all day, so I told her I lost my book. It’s not really a lie; it’s more of an omission.
actually kind of disappointed that I didn’t get to see
How can I miss someone I only knew for a few hours? And why can’t I get him out of my head? My mom thinks I’m moping around because we’re leaving tomorrow for New Mexico, and I feel really bad not telling her the truth, but how do I tell her that I miss a boy I only knew for a few moments, more than I’ll ever miss the people I went to school with for over a year?
As far as leaving my old school, well it wasn’t really that hard to do. I didn’t have any friends to speak of, so saying goodbye was pretty easy. My math teacher Mrs. Sullivan cried though. She was really sweet and I am going to miss her, but that’s about it.
School starts tomorrow so I should probably go to bed. I really hope things go okay for me here. I don’t want the same thing to happen here as it did in my old school. One way I can make sure that doesn’t happen is by not answering every single question or correcting my teacher’s mistakes. This time, I’m just going to be a normal girl…that gets straight A’s of course.
Oh and he still hasn’t called me. I should’ve known that he wouldn’t, but I still hoped.
is so unbelievable, I got detention on my very first day of school, but the
reason for it was oh so worth it: Troy Bolton. That’s right. The very same
Usually when I start at a new school I’m sick to my stomach, and I was this morning, for all of about ten minutes, and then his face popped up on my phone and all of my nerves went away. One moment I was petrified about being at a new school and the next minute I felt like my best friend was there to help me through it.
When we met up in the hallway we both started to ramble on about how unbelievable it all was. We just kept rambling on and…as a matter of fact; we actually finished each other’s sentences. How cool is that????
He walked me down the hall and welcomed me to his school, and we even joked about the school’s musical. Auditions are being held tomorrow for them, but I told him that I wasn’t going to try out. That would be too weird. I mean… I just couldn’t. I’d freak. Unless of course he wanted to audition with me, then I think I could do anything.
so while we were talking this exceptionally perky blond girl interrupted us,
and I could tell that I wasn’t welcomed anymore. Not by
also met a really nice girl named
I so can’t wait until homeroom tomorrow.
Today was probably the best day I’ve ever had at any school ever!
I was so excited about going to school this morning that I had my mom drop me off early. I don’t even remember saying goodbye to her; I just ran out of the car and headed off to my locker.
There was about 30 minutes until homeroom started and it was the longest 30 minutes of my life. Naturally I spent 15 of those 30 minutes standing outside of the classroom, until Ms. Darbus opened the door. “Early bird catches the worm Miss. Montez. I do hope you left your cell phone home today.” That woman is seriously…odd.
Ms. Darbus reminded us about the auditions that were going on for the school musical, and I couldn’t help but wonder if Troy was going to show East High the real him and go for it. Probably not, I thought, but I just may check out the auditions anyway. I am soooooo glad I did too because who do you think I found lurking behind a mop and a bucket? That’s right. Mr. Basketball star himself.
I told myself that I was only going to the auditions to see if he was there, but deep inside I knew it wasn’t the real truth. I seriously wanted to try out, but the thought of singing in front of all of those people… ugh. I asked him if he was going to audition, but he said no and when he asked me if I were going to try out, I said no too. There was no way I could admit to him how frightened I was, but he totally took me by surprise when he commented on how “harsh” Ms. Darbus was to the people that were auditioning and then I realized that he was scared too. I asked him if he were afraid and at first he tried to play it cool and said no, but then he said he was a little scared. “Me too,” I blurted out. Now that I think of it, it was kind of funny when Ms. Darbus started talking and we both ducked behind the cleaning cart. We were just a couple of chickens in hiding.
Ryan and Sharpay, the girl who signs her name with stars (weird), started their
they were done Ms. Darbus called for any last minute sign ups and
not sure what it was that made me say I wanted to audition. Maybe it was
because everyone had left the theater, or that Ms. Darbus shut the light off
and started to head out, but I suddenly found myself saying that I wanted to
audition. Of course Ms. Darbus had to lecture me on punctuality, the single
auditions had ended long ago and there was no one to do a pairs audition with
me. My heart almost burst when
of us were kind of bummed about it, and then we saw that poor little girl,
Kelsi, trip and her music flew all over the stage. We ran up there to help her
and I couldn’t believe how sweet
When we were done with the duet, Ms. Darbus popped out from around the wall and told us that we had a callback. A callback! Can you believe it? She told Kelsi to give us the song from the second act and to work on it with us. Kelsi was pretty happy about that because she offered to rehearse with us every waking minute of everyday. She really is sweet.
Can you tell I was totally thrilled to get the callback? That meant that I got to sing with Troy again. Troy on the other hand was a little weirded out by it. The look of shock on his face was a little surprising to say the least. I’m sure he’s worried about what his friends will think when they find out, but I know he won’t back out on me. Boy, are his friends in for quite a shock.
