Chapter 8
Quinns pov:
I rang Rachels doorbell and she opened it.

"Hey baby whats up?" I asked her.

"Hi." She said.

I looked at her and there were tears in her eyes,

"Whats wrong?" I asked coming closer to her.

"We have to break up." She said crying.

"What, why what happened?" I asked her.

"Quinn, we arent ready to be together yet. You just admitted to yourself a couple of days ago you're gay and thats huge and as much as I like you I know you're going to need time to talk to everyone to get use to it." She told me.

"Rachel I don't understand where is this coming from?" I asked her.

"I'm sorry I just, I don't think you're ready." She told me.

"For what?" I asked her.

"To be a couple. Quinn this whole thing is a lot to take in all at once and as much as I care about you I don't want you to come out and regret I want you to do it the right way and when you're ready." She said.

"And we can just be together till I'm ready , I mean I really like you and I do want to be with you." I said.

"I'm sorry, but you deserve better and so do I." She said and shut the door in my face.

I held myself feeling all broken up inside. Was Rachel right? Was I ready to come out? Was I ready to lose everything I worked for? I love my life but I love Rachel more. Wait, did I just admit I love Rachel. Yeah I love Rachel. I thought to myself. Now I just need to prove to her I do and I think I have the perfect way.

(3 days later)
I walked into glee club and saw Rachel sitting there talking to Finn. I sat down in the back fiddling with my hands.

"Okay everyone so this weeks assignment was to sing something to someone to show them how you feel. So does anyone have a song to sing?" Mr. Shue asked us.

I bit my lip and said,

"I do."

"Okay great." He said and I sat on the stool and said,

"There's something I've been hiding for awhile now and recently I admitted to myself and now I'm ready to say it the world despite the consequences because I want the one that I love to know I'm not afraid to admit it no matter what." I said and started :
(Quinn)
She says I smell like safety and home
I named both of her eyes "Forever" and "Please don't go"
I could be a morning sunrise all the time, all the time yeah
This could be good, this could be good

And I can't change, even if I tried
Even if I wanted to
And I can't change, even if I tried
Even if I wanted to
My love, my love, my love, my love
She keeps me warm, she keeps me warm

What's your middle name?
Do you hate your job?
Do you fall in love too easily?
What's your favorite word?
You like kissing girls?
Can I call you baby?
Yeah, yeah

She says that people stare 'cuz we look so good together
Yeah, yeah, yeah
(Rachel has tears in her eyes)
And I can't change, even if I tried
Even if I wanted to
And I can't change, even if I tried
Even if I wanted to
My love, my love, my love, my love
She keeps me warm, she keeps me warm [x2]

I'm not crying on Sundays, I'm not crying on Sundays [x2]
Love is patient, love is kind [x4]
My love, my love, my love, my love
(Goes to Rachel and bends down)
She keeps me warm, she keeps me warm
(End of song)
I leaned in and kissed her passionately and said ,

"I love you Rachel and I don't care who knows." I told her smiling.

"I love you too Quinn." She said with tears in my eyes and we hugged as everyone clapped.
