Title: Dueting with You
Characters: Quinn and Puck
Summary: What if Puck was around during 2.04, "Duets," and he sung a duet with Quinn, instead of Quinn singing with Sam?
Disclaimer: I don't own Glee or the characters. If I did, it would be filled with Quick and Finchel fluff! And Quinn would've kept her baby.
Note: Starts off with a little Kurt, Mercedes, Santana, and Sam, but then dives into Quick! :) Oh, and let's just say that Sam already knows about the baby drama from the year before (since there won't be him trying to kiss Quinn.) And Shelby still adopted Beth, just clarifying. This should be around three chapters long. Read and Review please! :)
Chapter 1: Picking Partners
"This week we will be doing duets!" Mr. Schue announced, "And the winners will get dinner, one me, at Breadstix!"
The Glee Club started cheering.
"They are legally forbidden to stop bringing you Breadsticks," Santana whispered to Mercedes.
Mercedes rolled her eyes at Santana's comment, knowing that she wanted to duet with her, I mean, she had an amazing voice and they totally blew the Glee clubbers out of the water when they sang, "The Boy is Mine," last school year, but she was going to sing with Kurt.
"Kurt, I—," she began.
"Hey, Mercedes, I am so sorry. I'm going to—I'm going to go ask Sam if he wants to duet," he told her and scattered out of the room after the blonde boy.
Santana looked at her.
"Fine," mumbled the chocolate skinned diva.
Quinn was standing in the hallway when Puck came up to her.
"So, Fabray, my baby mama, want to sing?"
She turned to face him.
"A duet? With you?" she snorted.
He nodded. She realized the look in his eyes had changed. It was no longer his usual cocky look. It was a loving look. She remembered it.
"Oh My God!" Quinn said, startled.
Puck came running into their room, equipped with a spatula.
"God, Puck, put the spatula down. I'm fine," Quinn rolled her eyes.
"Then why'd you scream?"
"Because the baby just kicked. I mean I had felt her a little bit before, but it has become more noticeable now."
"Can I—can I feel her kick?" he asked, quietly.
She thought about it for a second, and then nodded. He looked so excited. He dropped the pancake batter covered spatula on the floor (he had been trying to learn to make them, because Quinn had been craving them recently, and he didn't want her to have those crappy drive thru ones) and quickly sat down next to her, placing his hand tenderly on her stomach.
"I felt it!" he said, smiling. She saw a loving look in his eyes. That is when she thanked God for letting the truth about her, Puck, and the baby come out. She knew she was supposed to be with him.
"Huh? Oh, okay, sure," she replied.
"Great, meet me in the choir room at 3:15, tomorrow," his eyes sparkled.
"Oh, and Puckerman?"
He spun back around, "Huh?"
"Don't call me 'baby mama', I am the mother of your child. Use the proper term," she stated before walking away.
The next morning, Sam Evans came up to her, "Quinn? It's Quinn, right?"
"So, I was wondering, will you duet with me?"
"I thought you were singing with Kurt," she replied.
He shook his head 'no'.
"I'm sorry, I can't."
"Why? Because of Puckerman? You know, just because you had a baby with him last year, doesn't mean you have to stay with him. I mean, you gave your kid up to Berry's biological mother. So, technically, you're not a mother anymore, you didn't keep the kid, you don't have to stay with him."
She spun back around and gave him a withering look, "I am a mother. I will always be a mother. I like Puck. I want to sing with him. And I will say this one more and you better get this through your head, I'm sorry, but I already have a partner," she snapped. Then she spun on her heals and started down the hallway towards Mercedes and Kurt.
Note #2 (on Flashback): So, I don't really remember how far along Quinn was when she admitted that Puck was the father, but it couldn't have been that far, because a few episodes before, you could barely tell that she was pregnant. The first time I think I saw that she was noticeably pregnant, was, "Hairography," (though she looked pretty skinny in the episode after, "Mattress"), but anyway, let's just say that Beth started kicking, more noticeably, when Quinn moved in with Puck.
Sorry, that Sam is out of character (about the whole "Puck" and "Beth" comment), since, usually, he's fairly kind.
