Can we fast-forward to go down on me?

It only takes one kiss to turn the world upside down.

For Quinn, kissing Rachel is worth it. Kissing Rachel and having Rachel kissing her is worth having the whole world tilted on its axis.

Usually Quinn wouldn't let herself do this. Let herself weave fingers though a pretty girls hair and let the world explode. But that was the Quinn she used to be. Before she was the kind of girl to dye her hair pink and pierce her nose and tattoo angel wings across her knuckles. Before she was the kind of girl who stopped caring.

If she was thinking logically - which Quinn wasn't - she'd realise Rachel was trying to bring her out of her downwards spiral. Trying to bring the girl who Rachel had loved back.

Stop there and let me correct it

"Quinn." Rachel pulled away, looking messier than Quinn had ever seen her before. Rachel traced a finger over her lips carefully.

"I'm not going to forget that." Quinn told her firmly, although it was more of a promise.

"I know." Rachel ran her fingers though her hair. She was looking anywhere but Quinn's eyes. "I need you to come back."

"You're still talking about glee club?" Quinn asked. "That's so boring."

"Not to me." Rachel crossed her arms. It wasn't very intimating, given that Rachel was wearing three kinds of pink on her sweater. "We need you."

"I don't want the group to need me." Quinn said. "I want you to need me."

"I do." Rachel took a step closer to Quinn. "Of course, I need you Quinn. You're an amazing singer."

Quinn pulled away angrily. "This is why you came over here? To try and seduce me into singing with your little group of losers?"

"I didn't mean for this to get so out of hand." Rachel uncrossed her arms and reached out for Quinn's hand. The girl pulled away.

"Is this just a game to you?" Quinn yelled, blinking away hot tears. "My life falls about and you think a kiss will change things?"

"Of course not Quinn-"

"It's not a game to me!" Quinn shouted, her voice already hoarse. She had been doing so much shouting recently. "I have been in love with you for as long as I can remember and afraid."

"Quinn, please, Quinn-" Rachel tried again, reaching once more for the other girls hand.

"Leave me alone. It's clear you don't care anyway." Quinn stormed off, leaving Rachel underneath the bleachers by herself.

Quinn was crying, leaving large blotches of black make up running down her cheeks. Her lips still tasted like Rachel's lipgloss.

One kiss to turn the world upside down. One kiss to break Quinn's heart. One kiss to ruin everything.

I wanna live a life from a new perspective

"Quinn!" She didn't even hesitate for a second. Rachel could run as fast as she wanted. It wasn't going to change what she had said. "Quinn stop!"

Quinn didn't stop, even though she had already passed her classroom.

Rachel pushed past students as she ran to catch up with Quinn, chasing a glimpse of pink hair. "Quinn, please."

Rachel finally reached out and grabbed Quinn's elbow, pulling the taller girl around so she'd look at her. "I know you don't want to listen to me but I've finally found the right words to say to you." Quinn didn't interrupt. She didn't do anything but stare down at her converses. "I'm sorry."
