Chapter 10

The day after Finn revealed his plan for this week's glee assignment and Kurt and Blaine had performed 'Perfect' by P!nk, Rachel raises her hand during glee.

"Rachel?" Mr Schue prompts.

As she moves to the front of the choir room she catches Quinn's eyes and doesn't break the contact as she addresses the room.

"So most of you know me as the girl who never breaks the rules, especially in glee but this song doesn't quite meet the brief because although it's sung to a girl it's originally performed by a guy. However, I have rearranged the song, giving it a more slow, acoustic sound so hopefully it'll still be okay for this assignment. Also, it's very suitable for the current situation." Rachel says, making sure Quinn knew she was talking to her.

The brunette had texted Quinn the night before, telling her that she was singing this song for her and although a lot of the words weren't true yet, she sure hoped they would be soon.

"So this is for you…" Rachel continues, finally tearing her eyes away from Quinn and landing them on the girl next to her. "…Santana."

"When I need motivation
My one solution is my queen
'Cause she stay strong (yeah yeah)
She is always in my corner
Right there when I want her
All these other girls are tempting
But I'm empty when you're gone
And they say"

"Do you need me?
Do you think I'm pretty?
Do I make you feel like cheating?
And I'm like no, not really cause"

"Oh I think that I found myself a cheerleader
She is always right there when I need her
Oh I think that I found myself a cheerleader
She is always right there when I need her"

"She walks like a model
She grants my wishes like a genie in a bottle (yeah yeah)
Cause I'm the wizard of love
And I got the magic wand
All these other girls are tempting
But I'm empty when you're gone
And they say"

"Do you need me?
Do you think I'm pretty?
Do I make you feel like cheating?
And I'm like no, not really cause"

"Oh I think that I found myself a cheerleader
She is always right there when I need her
Oh I think that I found myself a cheerleader
She is always right there when I need her"

"She gives me love and affection
Baby did I mention, you're the only girl for me
No I don't need a next one
Mama loves you too, she thinks I made the right selection
Now all that's left to do
Is just for me to pop the question"

"Oh I think that I found myself a cheerleader
She is always right there when I need her
Oh I think that I found myself a cheerleader
She is always right there when I need her."

"My place, after school." Quinn mutters into Rachel's ear as everyone moves to the front to praise her on her arrangement.

The girls walk in Quinn's bedroom and the blonde sits nervously on the edge of her bed as Rachel's eyes scan the room.

"Doesn't feel so good when the shoe's on the other foot does it?" Rachel teases, thinking back to the time when Quinn scanned her bedroom after waking up.

She then wanders towards the ensuite. "Ooh I remember what happened in here." She winks and Quinn smirks as she remembers the feeling of the diva's fingers in her hair.

Suddenly, Rachel gasps. "Quinn! I didn't know you had a pull up bar!"

"Yeah." The blonde blushes. "And?"

Rachel doesn't bother to reply, she just raises an eyebrow and jumps, catching her weight by grabbing the bar. Quinn's mouth falls open as she watches the girl do several pull ups without any struggle or hesitation.

"Wow Rach, who knew you were so ripped."

"Yeah... well... I am light." She responds between reps.

Quinn chuckles and gets up, moving to stand in the doorway, inches away from Rachel.

As the brunette lowers herself, she wraps her legs around the other girl's waist and let's Quinn take her weight before releasing the bar and resting her hands on the blonde's shoulders.

"Hmm, you are light." Quinn teases, tilting her head back so she's looking up into the deep brown eyes that she constantly gets lost in.

"Told you." Rachel smirks. "Can I kiss you?"

"Like you even need to ask."

The brunette's smirk turns into a full blown smile as she lowers her head towards Quinn's lips.


Quinn drops Rachel, surprised at hearing her mother's voice.

"Ouch, Quinn!" The singer whines but her complaint falls on deaf ears as Quinn is still frozen in shock.

She huffs as she climbs up off the floor which grabs the blonde's attention.

"Shit, sorry Rach. Um, so my mum's home."

"I can tell." Rachel mutters, still annoyed that she was dropped.

"Do you mind climbing out the window?"


Rachel assumes that Quinn is joking until she sees her apologetic look.

"Are you serious right now Quinn?"

"I… well… the last my mother heard, I bullied you. I need time to tell her that we're friends now before I even tell her that we're more than friends…"

"Quinnie?" Judy Fabray calls again. "I'm not home for long I just want to talk to you about something."

"There see you don't even have to leave, just hide please." Quinn begs as she hears her mother climbing the stairs.

"Fine." Rachel grumbles, before entering Quinn's walk-in wardrobe.

As soon as the wardrobe door is shut, Judy enters the room.

"There you are, did you not hear me calling you?"

"Um yeah sorry Mum, I was doing homework."

Judy scans the room but sees no evidence of her daughter's homework. She chooses to ignore it for now.

"So I'm going out for dinner."

"Okay." Quinn shrugs, not seeing how this was different to usual, her mother was hardly ever home for dinner.

"But um, with a guy."

"Oh you mean a date?"


Quinn smiles. "Well as long as he's better than Dad I really don't care, thanks for telling me though."

"Thanks Quinnie. Have fun with your friend." Judy chuckles.


"I can see their shadow through the slats in the wardrobe door sweetie, but as long as it isn't a boy I don't mind."

Rachel, who could hear everything, felt her heart rate quicken then drop when Judy mentioned it being a boy. How was she going to react when she knew the truth?

"I guess you can come out now." She hears Quinn sigh.

Judy watches with a shocked expression as the girl her daughter used to bully emerged from the wardrobe.

"Oh, Rachel right?"

"Yes, Mrs Fabray."

"Please, call me Judy, I haven't been a Fabray for years."

"Yes, of course, Judy."

"Well, have a nice evening and I'll talk to you tomorrow Quinnie."

Quinn blushes as her mother kisses her on the cheek before finally leaving, and a few minutes later the girls hear the front door open and close.

"Maybe I should've climbed out the window." Rachel jokes.

"What am I going to do?"


"You saw her face Rachel, and she wants to talk tomorrow. I'm pretty sure she knows what's going on."

"How could she know? She said 'as long as it's not a boy' she thinks you're straight."

"I guess." Quinn sighs, collapsing onto her bed, lying on her back and covering her face with her hands.

Rachel decides to distract her and climbs over the blonde, straddling her hips.

"I believe you owe me a kiss, plus a couple others for dropping me."

Quinn smirks up at the girl. "That I can do."

Rachel can't help but smile at the irony of singing 'I Kissed a Girl' later in the week, however she's jealous that she has to dance with Santana and Brittany whilst Sugar and Tina got to dance with Quinn, plus she had to sing the line 'hope my boyfriend don't mind it' and she didn't miss the optimistic look in Finn's eyes as she did so.

Quinn didn't miss it either.

As soon as the song finishes, Finn gets up to talk to Rachel but Quinn has other ideas and pulls the girl into a hug, causing Finn to take a step back in surprise.

"Listen up." Quinn announces releasing Rachel from the hug but keeping hold of her hand.

Rachel meanwhile, was panicking over what Quinn was about to reveal.

"Rachel and I are friends now, if anyone has a problem with that or is confused, I don't care, get over it." The blonde finishes and Rachel relaxes, she should've known Quinn wouldn't tell everyone without talking to her first.

As Quinn leads Rachel out of the room, Santana turns to Brittany.

"Right they're 'friends' now." She smirks, using finger quotes around the word friends.

"What? You think there's more to it?" Puck asks from behind them.

Santana instantly panics, not realising the boy had been that close.

"Um, no, I just think Quinn may be using her." The Latina lies, causing Puck to shrug and walk away.

Unfortunately, Santana's lie was about to cause more problems than it solved as Puck wasn't the only one close enough to hear them.

Standing a few feet away was Kurt, and he was now very concerned for his friend.

Oh Rachel, what have you gotten yourself into?

Song: Cheerleader (Felix Jaehn Remix) by Omi but I've pictured it stripped back and slower like Rachel described.
