The Story About Quinn @queendiannaagron
Chapter 7

AN: She returns! Exams are over so I can finally get back to posting. Say You'll Be Mine will also be updated very soon (hopefully!).


Chapter 6

"How was last night?" Brittany asked, breaking the awkward silence hanging over the foursome.

"It was good Britt, and the company wasn't half bad." Quinn smirked at Rachel.

"So I assume this little spark is staying between us four?" Santana asked, gesturing between Quinn and Rachel.

"Spark?" Rachel questioned.

"Yeah, they're really flying between the two of you." Santana chuckled, of course they were oblivious. "What exactly happened last night?"

"We had dinner." Quinn explained.

"And…?" The Latina prompted, looking towards Rachel, knowing she would be the one to crack.

"I'm not one to kiss and tell Santana." The brunette said, before realising what she'd just given away. "Dammit."

Quinn buried her face in her hands, anticipating the teasing that was to come but when Santana stayed silent, she risked a glance at her best friend who was just grinning at her.

"What, no comment?" She asked.

The head cheerleader simply shrugged. "I'm happy for you Q."

It was then that the blonde's phone started to ring so she answered it, a smile on her face having caught a glance of the caller ID.

"Hey Mouse!" She said into the receiver. "I've been thinking about you, I miss you."

As Quinn laughed at the mysterious person's response, Rachel frowned.

Who's mouse and why is she so excited right now? The brunette thought, her overthinking nature kicking in.

Santana noticed the look on Rachel's face as Quinn wandered off to take the rest of the call in private.

"Relax shrimp, she's crazy about you, that much is clear." The Latina said to reassure the diva.

"Do you know who that is?"

"No, but I'm sure it's nothing to worry about."

Rachel wasn't so sure, there was something about the way Quinn lit up when she answered the phone, and the nickname didn't sit right with her. Of course, she shouldn't jump to conclusions but jealousy was rearing it's ugly head and she was determined to show Quinn that she should pick her.

"Excuse me, I have to practise a song I want to sing in glee later." Rachel announced, standing and walking away from the other two girls.

"What was that all about?" Brittany asked.

"I don't know but I have a feeling Berry is about to make a claim on Blondie."


That afternoon in glee club, Rachel was running over lyrics in her head when Quinn walked in and sat next to her.

"Hey, sorry about lunch. I came back but you'd gone off somewhere and Santana said she didn't ask where you were going because she didn't care." The blonde explained, laughing lightly.

"It's fine. I had something to do."

Quinn frowned at the cold nature Rachel was giving off, had she done something wrong already?

"Are you okay?"

"Fine thank you." Rachel responded, still concentrating on lyrics.

As soon as Mr Schuester walked in, the brunette jumped up and requested to sing, knowing if she didn't get this out now, she might explode.

The music started up and Santana smirked, she was so taking credit for this.

"The way you move is like a full on rainstorm,
And I'm a house of cards.
You're the kind of reckless,
That should send me running,
But I kinda know that I won't get far.
And you stood there in front of me,
Just close enough to touch,
Close enough to hope you couldn't see,
What I was thinking of.

"Drop everything now,
Meet me in the pouring rain,
Kiss me on the sidewalk,
Take away the pain,
Cause I see sparks fly, whenever you smile.
Get me with those green eyes, baby, as the lights go down,
Give me something that'll haunt me when you're not around,
Cause I see sparks fly, whenever you smile."

The majority of the glee club was only half paying attention, it wasn't uncommon for Rachel to sing a love song and they were all, quite frankly, fed up with her on-again-off-again relationship with Finn. However Quinn was on the edge of her seat, hanging on to every word whilst Finn was silently steaming, he didn't have green eyes.

"My mind forgets to remind me,
You're a bad idea.
You touch me once and it's really something,
You find I'm even better than you imagined I would be,
I'm on my guard for the rest of the world,
But with you I know it's no good,
And I could wait patiently but I really wish you would.

"Drop everything now,
Meet me in the pouring rain,
Kiss me on the sidewalk,
Take away the pain,
Cause I see sparks fly, whenever you smile.
Get me with those green eyes, baby, as the lights go down,
Give me something that'll haunt me when you're not around,
Cause I see sparks fly, whenever you smile.

"I run my fingers thought your hair and watch the lights go wild.
Just keep on keeping your eyes on me,
It's just wrong enough to make it feel right.
And lead me up the staircase,
Won't you whisper soft and slow?
I'm captivated by you, baby, like a firework show.

"Drop everything now,
Meet me in the pouring rain,
Kiss me on the sidewalk,
Take away the pain,
Cause I see sparks fly, whenever you smile.
Get me with those green eyes, baby, as the lights go down,
Give me something that'll haunt me when you're not around,
Cause I see sparks fly, whenever you smile.

"And the sparks fly,
Oh, baby, smile,
And the sparks fly."

As soon as Rachel finished the last note, Quinn was ready to jump out of her seat and kiss her when Santana's hand landed on her shoulder.

"You're not alone." The Latina whispered in her ear. "By the way, I told you there were sparks."

Quinn turned her attention back to the front of the room to find Finn hovering over Rachel, she and Santana instantly stormed over.

"Who were you singing about?" They heard Finn demand.

The rest of the New Directions perked up at hearing a conflict brewing, Mr Schue remained oblivious, leaning over some sheet music in his office.

Santana rolled her eyes at their director and moved to stand next to Rachel.

"That's none of your business." She told him.

"I was talking to Rachel." He snarled.

"Well now you're talking to me, leave her alone."

Finn noticed Quinn standing a short distance away and glared at her. It was then that he noticed her eyes. They weren't exactly green but hazel was a lot closer than brown.

"HER?" He practically shouted, causing even Santana to jump.

Quinn had to clench her fists to stop herself from giving him the same fate as Karofsky. Judy had told her she needed to work on her anger issues and she was right, she couldn't rely on beating people up when they made her angry for the rest of her life. Even if she really wanted to.

"Finn, please, it's doesn't affect you who I'm interested in." Rachel tried to reason, fully aware of all the ears listening in.

"I love you Rach, that means it affects me." He argued.

"I need you to move on. I'm not sure you really love me, you just can't handle being alone so please, find someone else. I have."

"But you're straight."

"Finn Hudson you listen to me." Rachel demanded, raising her voice. "You have no right dictating who I have feelings for, or what my sexuality is. That's for me to figure out."

Quinn finally gained some confidence having seen the panic settling behind Rachel's eyes so she stepped between her and Finn. Judy told her about not resulting to violence but that didn't mean she couldn't show him a lesson, she was going to be so proud of Quinn.

"Finn, this is her world, her life, people should feel safe doing what they love. Being in love with someone is being more than just a boyfriend."

"Who the hell do you think you are?! Do you even know anything about Rachel or are you just using her?" Finn asked.

Mr Schuster had finally registered that there was a commotion in the choir room and wandered in, clapping his hands in an excited way, but everyone ignored him.

"Alright, I'll make you a deal, if I can name three things about Rachel that you don't know, you sit the fuck down and act like a gentleman for once."

"Guys!" Mr Schue said, trying and failing to gain back control.

"I want to hear this and then we can go back to planning for Invitationals." Rachel told the director, causing him to sigh and let it happen.

"One, Rachel has a fake leather skirt that she doesn't bring to school, for obvious reasons aside from the fact she doesn't want it ruined by a slushie. Two, she loves baseball, specifically the New York Yankees and her favourite player is Derek Jeter. Three, she loves this glee club and wouldn't ever defect and was virtually heartbroken when Shelby left because someone was being selfish." Quinn finished, glancing at Mr Schuester briefly to make sure he caught on to that last part before turning her gaze back to Finn who looked beyond shocked.

"All of them are true." Rachel added, unable to contain her grin at the fact Quinn listened to her.

"It just doesn't make sense, you hang out with Santana and Brittany, and Santana's a loner, she hates everyone, especially Rachel. Where did you even come from? You just turned up out of nowhere, are you an orphan or something?" Finn ranted.

"Finn!"

Quinn raised her hand to stop Rachel's protests, training her thoughts on Judy's lie to avoid spilling too much of the truth. "I'll have you know Finn I am an orphan. I watched from my bedroom window as my family pulled out of the driveway and drove a little way down the road only to get hit by some fucker in a stupidly big red car who didn't check before pulling out of a junction. I didn't even get to say goodbye properly. I was in a mental hospital because of it and so if anyone wants to pass that around, make sure you get your facts right." She yelled, turning to the rest of the club during the last part, tears in her eyes yet satisfied at the look of horror on Finn's face as he realised what he'd just said. Rachel began to run her hand up and down the blonde's back, comforting her and Santana wrapped an arm around her waist.

"I'd just like to add that Berry may be annoying, but I don't hate her, sure she bothers me sometimes but she gave me the benefit of the doubt at Sectionals last year and I won't ever forget that." The Latina said. "Also, I have my reasons for being a 'loner'."

"Look Quinn, I'm sorry for saying that, I didn't know but even so, it wasn't cool. It's just weird that you make her so happy when for so long that was my job." Finn admitted, looking directly into Quinn's eyes so she knew he was telling the truth but Rachel could tell it was honest anyway.

They shared a nod and the room descended into silence.

"Everyone please take your seats." Mr Schue announced, clapping Finn on the shoulder and waiting for everyone to settle down. "I've finalised the set list for Invitationals."

As he droned on, Quinn and Rachel sat panicking. The club knew their secret and soon, it would spread around the whole school along with the news about Quinn's family. Their eyes met and they knew they were thinking the same thing.

'What do we do now?'


Song: Sparks Fly by Taylor Swift

AN: Just to update you on my life, because, why not? I thought I'd put this at the end for those of you who don't want to read it can just skip to the next chapter (if/when there is one) rather than having to scroll past it if I'd put it at the beginning. Anyway, I've finished my Undergraduate course now (yay) but have applied for a Masters because I feel like punishing myself, no but seriously I need a Masters for the job I want so that was fun news.

It's nice to be out of lockdown too so I'm fully free and fully jabbed up ready to face the summer aha.

Hope everyone is okay :)
