Chapter 1

"TROY!" Gabriella screamed and Troy came running down the stairs.

"What happened?" He asked only to find his girlfriend since high school staring at her computer excitement on her face.

"WE GOT THE JOB, AND SO DID TAYLOR,CHAD,ZEKE,SHARPAY,RYAN, AND KELSI" Gabriella yelled and Troy read the email over her shoulder.

"Brie stop yelling, I know you're excited but calm down!" Troy said grinning. "And I'm guessing you already have the tickets booked back home?" Troy asked. Gabriella nodded. "Come on Brie we need to pack our stuff, we're leaving tomorrow."

The two spent the rest of the day and night packing everything, they gave all the furniture, seeing as Sharpay already set up their houses, complete with furniture. The next morning they left for the airport and landed in Albuquerque three and a half hours later. They stepped out of the airplane, got their bags, and stepped out the airport only to be tackled in a huge hug. Gabriella instantly hugged the person back as Zeke came over to greet them.

"SHAR!" Gabriella screamed matching the blonde's enthusiasm.

"GABS"

Gabriella let go of Sharpay to give Zeke a quick hug as Sharpay hugged Troy.

"How have you been?" Troy asked as they put the luggage in the trunk of Sharpay's car. "And why did you bring two cars?"

"Good and the other's so that we have enough place for Taylor, Chad, Ryan and Kelsi." Zeke replied and Taylor and Chad walked out of the airport. Gabriella and Sharpay tackled Taylor into a hug. Troy and Zeke greeted Chad and Kelsi and Ryan soon followed them. Once the entire gang arrived, they drove off to their alma mater, East High, Home of the Wildcats. It was a Friday, they would start on Monday but decided to talk with and see a few of their old teachers. Not even Sharpay and Zeke, who had been in Albuquerque all along. Stepping through the doors of the place they considered once considered their second home, they stepped into the office of Dave Matsui. He looked up when they entered and beamed.

"Ahh, I see that the gang is back together." He said smiling.

"Yes sir, we're here about those job offers?" Troy said.

"Yes, we could use some help from the people who boosted east High into the clouds. So I take it that you accept?" Dave asked and they nodded. "Great, you'll start on Monday, you can go take a tour if you would like, the day's almost over."

The gang nodded and wandered the halls before coming to a stop in front of the auditorium doors. They all glanced at one other and opened the doors finding the auditorium completely empty. this wasn't the East High they knew. The East High they knew was full of school spirit and many voices and sounds no matter the time. This East High seemed empty. Troy and Gabriella ran towards the stage the other six following closely behind.

"Once more, for old time's sake?" Troy called and everyone agreed. "Kels!" Kelsi headed to the piano, playing the song they knew well. Everyday.

Troy started with Gabriella joining him, and the rest of them on chorus. The dance was imprinted into their minds, if asked they could easily pull of any of their musicals in a matter of a week.

When they finished, Gabriella and Troy were left center stage with their foreheads pressed together and you would have to be blind not to see the love in their eyes. Suddenly they heard claps and looked to the doors to see standing there, clapping.

"Bravo , , . Bravo!" She said beaming. Behind her were about 20 students filing into the auditorium.

" , how are you?" Gabriella asked.

"Just fine, , and I believe you are the new teachers?" asked and they nodded. "Glad to see it, East high hasn't been the same since you left. I do wonder have you seen you're photos literally everywhere, i have to say you were quite the legends. Especially that stunt during the fall musicale callbacks during your Junior year." She said winking and they all laughed.

"Were we interrupting anything, ?" Taylor asked.

"Oh no, , not at all. In fact I could use some help. I cannot seem to get any spirit into these students, and Dave has tried EVERYTHING to get some spirit back into East High." said nodding to the students who were just milling around.

Guys?" Sharpay asked and they all nodded.

"We got it, Mrs.D" Chad said as Sharpay rattled off the instructions.

"Troy, Gabi, work with the leads. Ryan, choreography. Kelsi, piano. Chad and Taylor, you're helping me with these students. Come on people let's get to work." Sharpay said and bounced up and down. They all laughed, the queen of theatre was back.

"Attention students. Today I will not be teaching you, your rehearsals will be done today by these eight people. I trust you know them. Please do as they say. Carlos and Lina please follow and . The rest of you come up on the stage." The gang got to work, but it was at a loss. The leads weren't in tune, the rest of the cast didn't seem interested, it was falling apart.

"Mrs.D" Chad called and she looked up. "You need to hold auditions again. The leads aren't working together, the rest of the cast looked like me when I first started, expect they don't even seem to like it at all."

"I was thinking of that, , but no one else seems interested." said frustration written on her face.

"Why am I getting a case of deja-vu here?" Gabriella muttered and Troy chuckled.

"Probably cause that's what's gonna happen" He replied and she shook her head.

"Ok is it just me or is East High really gone downhill?" Zeke said as they headed back to principal Matsui's office. He looked up at their grim faces and sighed.

"I HAVE TRIED EVERYTHING!" He said in frustration. "there's no more pep in East High."

"Leave that pep to us" Taylor said and dave smiled.

"Glad to hear that. I'll see you Monday."
