Wow…it's been a looong time…months…I am sooo sorry…I just…felt completely drained of inspiration and creativity…but I knew that I just had to put something up…As usual…it's kinda on the short side…I'll try and make it up to you guys, I promise…I won't bother you with the 'schoolwork' excuse. You know how it is…

"Tay," Chad said. "I think you should take a look at this." Reluctantly, she turned around, and gasped slightly. Tyler's nose was all bloody, and his shirt was pretty bloody too.

"What do you think happened?" Ryan asked, as Chad's phone began to ring.

"Talk to me." Chad answered. "Troy? What? Calm down, man…you did what?!" Silence, then "Okay, I'll let them know." He shut his phone, and the others looked at him expectantly. "Troy beat up Tyler." He said, his face showing no obvious expression. The others blinked at him as if they hadn't quite heard what he said.

Taylor was the first to respond. "I don't believe you."

"It's true…he told me so himself." Chad replied.

"Why would he do that?" Sharpay asked.

"I don't know, but I can't help but think that Tyler planned it…"

End of recap

Troy ran. He didn't know why he didn't just follow Tyler and try to explain everything to everyone. The only problem was the fact that he didn't actually have anything to say that would make what he did okay. Because it wasn't okay, not really, not at all. What he did was wrong, and he shouldn't have let Tyler get to him. He could hear the surprise in Chad's voice when he had told him what happened. Troy Bolton didn't beat people up. Until now. Troy slowed down to a walk; even star athletes get out of breath.

He was mad, but not at Tyler like other people would be. He was mad at himself. Tyler would have probably told everyone about it now. Would people believe him though? Probably. He was one of those kinds of guys that could make you believe anything. Heck, that's why he could get Troy so mad…

People began to whisper things to each other, some crowding round Tyler to find out what had happened.

"Who did this to him?"

"Hey, isn't that the new guy?"

"He looks pretty bad."

Tyler hushed the crowd. Everyone quietened down, eagerly waiting to hear what he had to say.

"I bet you're all wondering why I'm in this state. Well, you might not believe me, but, the person who did this…it was someone you all know pretty well…" he paused for effect. You could practically hear everyone's breathing. He smiled; he was going to enjoy this. "It was Troy. Bolton." Gasps echoed around the cafeteria as whispering took over the cafeteria once more. Except this time, it was much louder, and the volume was steadily increasing. Everyone was talking about one thing. Troy.

The only silent people were the four friends, who could only think about how badly this was going to affect Troy's reputation. And how much they hated Tyler Anderson. The said person turned to face them, and, something that seemed to go unnoticed by everyone else, was smiling triumphantly.

Well…there you go…this story will be on hiatus for a bit longer (it's practically already been on hiatus for the past TWO months), unless someone can suggest something that REALLY spark some creativity in me…Thanks to anyone who is still reading…hope you don't hate me…
