Blink And You'll Miss It @queendiannaagron
Chapter 14

AN: So I'm now writing three stories a the same time which I never want to do so I've paused with Say You'll Be Mine until I've finished Heartbeat Song which will be about 5 chapter long.

Also I've just bought a Nintendo Switch so hopefully that won't distract me too much but it's why this chapter is short which I didn't want to do with this story but I've kind of taken to updating on Mondays so I'll try to work harder on the next one.

Read and review :)

Chapter 14

"I need to tell you something…"

The words were still echoing around the room, the silence stretching out before them, neither girl brave enough to break it.

They were both panicking but for different reasons, Quinn was worried about how Rachel would react to what she was about to reveal whereas Rachel was going through every possible outcome in her mind, focusing on the worst case scenarios.

Finally, Rachel lifts her head from where it was resting on Quinn's shoulder to look her in the eyes, hovering slightly above the blonde.

Quinn sighs, knowing it's now or never.

"Monday night… after our fight, I locked myself in my room, like my mom said, except, I wasn't alone."

Rachel frowns and moves away from Quinn, sitting upright next to her instead.

Quinn runs her hands over her face, trying to find the courage to continue.

"I called Puck and asked him to sneak in through my bedroom window, which he did." The blonde risks taking a look at Rachel and her heart sinks when she sees hurt in those brown eyes. "Nothing happened though, well we kissed for a while but when I realised what I was doing, and that I only wanted you I stopped it and we just cuddled."

The girl's hazel eyes had never left Rachel's face, scanning every inch, looking for a sign that she needed to leave. When the brunette doesn't respond for a few minutes, Quinn sits up and moves to climb out of the bed until a hand on her bare thigh stops her.

Quinn gulps at the feeling. Why did I let Rachel give me shorts to sleep in? She wonders.

"Where are you going?"

"Um, well you were silent for a long time so I guessed you'd want me to leave."

"What? No, Quinn I'm just processing."

"So you're not mad?"

"Mad, no. Upset, maybe slightly but really I only have myself to blame. I was the one who pushed you away and into his arms. But the fact that you stopped because you were thinking about me is actually sexy, plus you were honest, that's all that really matters."

Quinn is trying very hard to concentrate on what Rachel is saying but the brunette never took her hand off Quinn's thigh and it's extremely distracting.

"Quinn?"

"Hmm?" The blonde looks up, tearing her gaze away from the small hand, moving it to Rachel's smirking face.

"Were you listening?"

"Yes, you said it was sexy, though I don't really see it."

"Well everyone has their own opinions." Rachel shrugs. "Was that all you wanted to say?"

"Well technically this isn't my secret to tell but I feel like you should know that Puck slept with Shelby."

"Ew, what?" The brunette scrunches her nose up in disgust. "So not only am I dating the girl who gave her daughter to my mom but now my mom is sleeping with the father of said baby. We should have our own reality show." She chuckles.

However Quinn didn't hear anything after 'dating'.

"I… we… dating?"

"Oh, well yeah I'd consider tonight a date wouldn't you?" Rachel blushes, previously unaware that she'd said the word dating.

"So, what is this? You and me."

"Something new."

Quinn wakes up in absolute bliss. She doesn't even remember falling asleep but suddenly sunlight was coming in through the windows and she was being pulled out of her dreams. Though for once she didn't mind, as her reality was better than her dreams.

Rachel was lying half on top of Quinn, her left arm around the blonde's waist, left leg tucked between Quinn's.

Quinn's left arm was wrapped around Rachel's back, hand resting on the girl's hip. She begins moving her hand until she feels the brunette start to wake up.

"Sorry, I didn't mean to wake you." She whispers once Rachel is awake fully.

"That's fine, it was a perfectly amazing way to wake up."

Quinn grins as Rachel lifts herself up to hover above her, leaning down to plant a soft kiss on her lips before sitting up fully.

The blonde pouts at the loss of contact.

Rachel giggles. "Sorry beautiful but I have morning breath and also I want breakfast, we didn't eat much last night."

"I'm so glad you said that because I can smell bacon."

"Well then you definitely aren't getting anymore kisses until you've brushed your teeth, thoroughly."

"Yes Miss." Quinn grins cheekily.

The girls rush downstairs, still in their sleepwear to find the two Berry men in the kitchen, Hiram was chopping fruit whilst LeRoy was cooking eggs and bacon at the stove.

Quinn accepts the glass of juice Rachel hands her and sits at the table, her offer of help rejected.

"How did you girls sleep?" Hiram asks.

"Should we be glad Rachel's room is soundproof?" LeRoy adds with a wink.

"We slept well thank you Dad, and that's all we did Daddy, for now anyway."

Quinn chokes on her orange juice. "Rachel!" She squeals.

"What? It's true, and we're very open in this household so I'd get used to that if I were you." The brunette smirks, patting Quinn on the back to ease the coughing.

"What are your plans for today?" Hiram questions, taking the attention off Quinn.

"Well I was hoping I could take Rachel somewhere, but I'll need to swing by my house as I don't have anything suitable to wear."

"Where are we going?" Rachel asks.

"It's a surprise."

"Quinn…" The singer whines. "I hate surprises."

"Yeah well after you took me to a gay bar I think you owe me this one."

"She took you where?" LeRoy intersects.

"Oh, um, seems you're not that open after all." Quinn blushes.

"You took her where Rachel?"

"Okay, I took Quinn to Scandals, we didn't drink though, well Quinn had one cider but I was driving."

Hiram sighs. "Well I suppose that's okay, just don't make a habit of it."

"Yes Dad."

"Yes Sir." Quinn adds when the man turns his stare towards her.

After a delicious breakfast, in Quinn's opinion, the girls head back upstairs and Rachel gets changed into something warm under Quinn's instructions whilst the blonde brushes her teeth.

As Rachel emerges from her ensuite she finds Quinn sat on her bed grinning.

"What?"

"I brushed my teeth, I used the bathroom down the hall to save time." The blonde winks.

"Hmm, is that so?"

"Yep, all traces of bacon removed, just for you. That spare toothbrush of yours is a life saver."

"What is it you want with your newly clean teeth?" Rachel teases.

Quinn rolls her eyes, crosses the room before Rachel can blink and pulls the girl into a kiss. After the initial shock, Rachel returns the kiss, opening her mouth to allow their tongues to meet.

"Mmm." Quinn hums as she pulls away. "As much as I'd like to do that all day, we're going to be late."

"Late? For what?"

"You'll see." The blonde winks, grabbing her things from last night before moving downstairs, hearing Rachel follow her.

They shout a quick goodbye to Rachel's dads before making the short drive to Quinn's house.

Rachel makes small talk with Judy while Quinn changes.

The blonde also makes sure to pack a small bag of clothes to keep at Rachel's so they wouldn't have to do this again anytime soon before the girls are on the road again.

"Rach, I know you'd probably like this to be asked in a more romantic way but will you be my girlfriend?" Quinn asks as she parks the car, hoping to distract Rachel enough that she doesn't notice where they are.

The brunette whips her head round to face Quinn, shock evident on her face.

"Well?" The blonde chuckles after a few moments of silence.

"Quinn, I'd love to be your girlfriend." Rachel grins.
