VI \\ Mash-Off

230 15 2

Emilia and Santana were sat curled together watching a movie on the tv in the living room with the rest of Emilia's family and Blaine and Rachel. Once a week, Burt had arranged for them to get together and have some family time, and if they wanted to, they could bring their partners. So that is how Emilia found herself and Santana sitting close to each other to seem as though they were friends, but not close enough to raise any suspicion just so that Rachel would not find out.

Rachel looked at the watch on her wrist, her eyes widening when she saw the time. "I should get going now. My dads will start to get worried." She said, standing up.

"But the movie has just started." Finn protested.

"No, it's fine. I have seen it before." Rachel said with a smile. "I'll see you at school." She pecked Finn on the lips before she walked out. "Thank you so much for dinner."

As soon as Rachel left, Emilia curled into Santana's side, smiling as she felt Santana wrap her arms around her and pulling her closer so that she was almost sitting in her lap.

A commercial appeared on the tv for Coach Sylvester's congress campaign. Emilia frowned as she saw what was happening. It was attacking Burt. She felt Santana tense up beside her and take hold of her hand under the blanket they were sharing.

"Burt Hummel he's running for Congress." Coach Sylvester said as a voiceover for the commercial. "last year, he had a heart attack. He might have had a heart transplant. And he might have got it from a baboon." A herd of baboons ran across the screen, as a transition for the next scene of baboons in the wild. "Baboons are dangerous killers who throw their own feces when they're not tearing off people's faces or admiring their own weird butts. Congress is bad enough. If Burt Hummel thinks what Washington needs is more baboon parts, then he needs a brain transplant." The screen showed an animation of Burt's head opening and his brain being removed and replaced with a new one. Emilia wrinkled her nose in disgust as her mouth dropped open in surprise. "Watch out, baboons. Burt Hummel and his baboon heart." The screen showed an image of Burt in front of an American flag. "Wrong on issues, wrong for Ohio. I'm Sue Sylvester. I have a human heart, and I approve this mes-" Emilia reached over and switched off the TV.

"Is she allowed to do this?" She asked the room. Finn, Kurt and Blaine shrugged while Carole looked at Burt in horror.

"I'm not entirely sure." Burt said, looking slightly upset. "But it's going to ruin the campaign."

Emilia sighed and stood up, leaving the room angrily. She had had enough of Coach Sylvester and her silly little ploys to constantly ruin everyone's life. It just wasn't fair. Her dad deserved this more than she did.

She stormed up to her room and harshly shut the door, sitting down on her bed and glaring at the wall.

"Hey, are you okay?" Santana asked, leaning against the door frame. Emilia turned at the sound of her voice.

"The man had angioplasty! She's telling lies! She's playing dirty and she's getting away with it!" Emilia exclaimed angrily. She picked up a stuffed animal from her bed and threw it across the room.

"Okay." Santana walked towards Emilia and knelt down in front of her. "Princesa, breathe deep, breathe deep, breathe deep." Emilia took some deep breaths to calm herself down. "We have to play nice. Because if you win by fighting dirty, it's not really winning."

The Trouble Tones made their way to the auditorium after Shelby had told them she had something to show them. As they stepped onto the stage, they realized they were not alone. Emilia looked around in confusion as they met with the New Directions.
