Blink And You'll Miss It @queendiannaagron
Chapter 29

AN: So when I first started writing this I pictured finishing it after graduation and maybe having an epilogue after college (see, I'm learning) but several twists and turns later, I decided to give you these chapters set over summer, as I mentioned in the last AN, that will be filled with sunshine and rainbows (not to mention, smut) to make up for all the angst I've put you through.

Shoutout to Pyrolee - your reviews every week never fail to make me smile and I apologise for making you late and forcing you to control your emotions on the bus!

Read and review :)

Chapter 29

"Left a bit." Rachel comments.

"Your left or mine?"


Quinn sighs and moves slightly to her right, Rachel's left.

"Okay try it now."

As Quinn lowers herself Rachel waits patiently.

"No, it's still not working." The brunette huffs, getting impatient.

"Dammit Rachel, do you want to do it?"

"Well no I'd much prefer it if you could do it, seems pointless to just do it myself."

The blonde growls lowly. "Fine, how about I say down there and you can shift left and right until I'm in the right place?"

Rachel tilts her head to the side in thought. "That could work, that way I'm fully in charge."

Quinn disappears from her line of sight once more and Rachel shifts slightly to her left, then back to the right.

"Oh my God, that's perfect. Just keep it there… yes Quinn!"

As Rachel finally snaps the picture she kicks her feet until Quinn surfaces.

"You know, if anyone heard us just then they'd be very confused about what was happening." The blonde jokes. "Let me see it then."

The diva blushes as she realises how their conversation must've sounded to anyone who could overhear, handing her girlfriend the camera.

Quinn looks over the picture, her legs sticking out the top of the pool water, her feet at the perfect angle so it looks like the setting sun is resting on her soles.

"Okay that was totally worth it." She giggles.

"You don't think your mom heard do you?"

Quinn laughs. "No, I was just teasing you."

She rests her head in Rachel's lap who is sat on the edge of her pool.

"Ew Quinn, you're making me all wet."

"Oh am I now?" The blonde smirks, an eyebrow raised.

"You know what I meant."

"I definitely do."

Quinn runs her nose along Rachel's bikini bottoms, causing the girl to whimper above her.

"Are you trying to get us in trouble?"

"I already said my mom can't hear us."

"But she can see us."

"She can see you, and only if she looks."

Rachel gives in at that point, the feeling of Quinn's nose rubbing her was too much to handle.

"Fine, but be quick."

The blonde grins, pulling aside the bright orange fabric and running her tongue along the girl's core, earning a moan.

Fingers lace in Quinn's hair as strong arms pull Rachel's hips closer to the edge of the pool, closer to her mouth.

"I'm so close already baby…" The singer moans.

Smirking against the girl's centre, Quinn slips her hands under Rachel and ducks down under the water before pushing up with her arms, causing Rachel to fall into the water behind her.

As the brunette splutters to the surface, Quinn leans against the pool wall, giggling.

"Quinn! What was that for?!"

"I couldn't resist." The blonde shrugs.

"Well good luck getting any tonight."

Quinn chuckles before helping her girlfriend out of the pool. "Oh, I'm not worried about that, after what I have planned, you'll definitely want me."

"Is that so? What, pray tell, do you have planned?"

"You'll see."

Half an hour later, Rachel is sat in Quinn's den, waiting for her to return.

She takes the time to look around the space, having never really spent any time in this room. She notices a large television, a huge stack of DVDs, an even bigger book case and the most beautiful piano she had ever seen. She reckoned this was the piano that Quinn had used when learning to play. She flashes back to the last time she heard Quinn play, right before she said those glorious three words that initially made her panic but soon made her realise that Quinn was all she'd ever want. Yes, she'd doubted this since but now they were back on the right track and although they were heading in two different directions, quite literally, in a few weeks, right now she didn't care. They were living in the moment. Sure the next three years were going to be insanely difficult, and leaving New York for a year after that may seem counterintuitive but it was worth it. Quinn was worth it.

As Quinn walks back into the room, Rachel stood to give her a long, deep kiss.

"Mmm…" Quinn moans, pulling away reluctantly, to catch her breath. "What was that for?"

"Just because I love you."

"I love you too, and I'm glad you are no longer mad at me."

"Only because I want to see what you have planned, you know how much I hate surprises and yet continue to plan them so I assume it must be a good one."

"I hope so."

"You hope so? You don't know?"

"Nope, it's actually more down to you, but first…" Quinn guides Rachel until she's sat back down on the couch. She then moves to sit at the piano stool.

"You're going to sing for me again?" The brunette grins.

"Yep. Now shh."

After taking a moment to collect herself, Quinn begins to play, humming along and after the introduction, joins in singing.

"How long will I love you?
As long as stars are above you,
And longer if I can.
How long will I need you?
As long as the seasons need to,
Follow their plan.

"How long will I be with you?
As long as the sea is bound to,
Wash up on the sand.

"How long will I want you?
As long as you want me to,
And longer by far.
How long will I hold you?
As long as your father told you,
As long as you can.

"How long will I give to you?
As long as I live through you,
However long you stay.
How long will I love you?
As long as stars are about you,
And longer if I may."

During the instrumental break, Quinn risks a glance at Rachel, who is staring with tears in her eyes.

"How long will I love you?
As long as stars are above you."

As soon as the last note rings out, Rachel is up out of her seat and landing in Quinn's lap.

"I'm the luckiest girl alive."

"Oh yeah?" Quinn smiles. "Why's that?"

"Because I get to call you my girlfriend."

"Well I've been thinking and… what if you called me your wife?"

Yes it's short but… cliff-hangers are like my thing now :D
