"Everyone in the grade- heck, everyone in Ferryport Landing High knew that Sabrina and Puck were sworn enemies." Not even the school play could dissolve their tension.

Man, I have missed you guys! I haven't updated in three weeks!
This chapter is dedicated to Crystalfeather12, because she is my absolute motivation. She's probably one of the nicest reviewers I've ever met, and she is currently staying up with me at midnight while I type up this chapter. You can all thank her- if she hadn't coaxed me, you most likely wouldn't be getting an update. So anyway, this chapter is for you girl.
Also, you guys might wanna refer to the very end of the last chapter in case you don't remember what's going on.
Finally, I'll be splitting the Point of Views. At first it will start off as Puck's POV, and then it will be Sabrina's. Hopefully you'll be able to tell where it switches.
"I don't want to do this."
"You have to."
"You have to!"
"Fine," Puck grumbled, crossing his arms over his chest childishly. "But does it have to be in front of the entire lunch room?"
Scarlett smirked at him, taking another bite of her salad. "What, are you nervous?"
Puck shook his head. "Nope. I don't get nervous."
Scarlett shook her head. "Yeah right."
"No, seriously." Puck said, all traces of joking gone. "I don't know how to be nervous."
"Well that's… okay whatever just get up there and do what we rehearsed!" Scarlett said impatiently.
Scarlett and Puck had spent the previous night coming up with a grand plan for Sabrina to forgive Puck. They had thought of everything from writing letters to having an apology written in the sky with an airplane- though the latter seemed less likely. Finally, they had agreed on Puck apologizing to Sabrina in front of the school cafeteria.
"And you're sure this is going to work?" Puck questioned.
"If it doesn't work I give you permission to tell everyone that I'm in love with you." Scarlett said after a moments hesitation.
Puck raised an eyebrow. "You sure? I mean that's a pretty big-"
"Just shut up and do it!" Scarlett exclaimed. "Don't doubt me! I'm a teenage girl, meaning that I know the way teenage girl's minds work- including Sabrina! If I say she will forgive you, then she will! I'm right. I'm always right!"
"One, Grimm is not a teenage girl. She is anything but." Puck explained. "And secondly, I can think of many instances where you have been wrong."
Scarlett gave him a deathly glare. "Get up on that table and give your speech or so help me I will-"
Puck quickly stood up on one of the cafeteria tables, making sure that everyone in the room had full view of him. "Yo! Can I have everyone's attention for a second?" He shouted, cupping his hands around his mouth.
Puck gave Scarlett a charmingly boyish grin when seemingly everyone in the room quieted down at his words. Scarlett crossed her arms over her chest, glowering up at him. He was too cocky for his own good- even when giving a speech in front of a room packed with high school students.
Puck searched around the now-quite lunch room until his eyes landed on Sabrina. Then he began his speech.
As soon as Sabrina had seen Puck get up on the cafeteria table, she knew something wasn't right.
"What is that idiot doing?" Sabrina questioned, talking more to herself than anyone else. No one else seemed to notice the 4,000 year old fairy disguised as a teenager standing randomly on a table.
"Yo! Can I have everyone's attention for a second?" Puck shouted to his "audience". Everyone immediately stopped talking.
"What's going on?" Rachel whispered in Sabrina's ear.
"I think Goodfellow is about to make a fool out of himself." Jeff said with a smirk from across the table. "This should be good."
Sabrina couldn't stop the sinking feeling she had in her stomach. Why did she feel like something horrible was about to happen?
The entire lunchroom was completely quiet. Even the lunch ladies were looking at Puck in confusion.
It looked as though Puck was looking for someone. His eyes swept around the room until they landed on Sabrina.
Sabrina shuddered, despite herself. His bright green eyes wouldn't look away from hers.
This better not be a prank.
Suddenly, Puck began to speak to the students in the room. "Hi, I guess. In case you don't know me, my names Robin Goodfellow. Now, you're probably wondering why I'm standing on a table. It's because I'm about to apologize to someone who's really important to me."
All of the girls 'awed' loudly, while the boys in the room began to clap at Puck's bravery. After the room had quieted down, Puck began speaking again.
He. Did. Not. Just. Say. My. Name.
"Oh my gosh… Sabrina, that's you!" Adrienne exclaimed. All eyes were on Sabrina at that moment.
"I met Sabrina Grimm when I was 11 years old. The day that I met her, many things happened: I was pushed into a pool, adopted by her family, and I made a friend. In case you haven't realized it, Sabrina was that friend that I made."
Laughter was heard from around the room.
Sabrina was still frozen, not taking her eyes off of Puck. Surprisingly, he hadn't taken his eyes away from her either.
"That is too cute Sabrina!" Rachel said.
"From day one, Sabrina and I had a love/hate relationship." Puck explained. "I would constantly pull pranks on her, and she would scream in my face and threaten bodily harm. It was pretty fun."
More laughter was heard from around the room. Most of the students in the cafeteria could remember years ago when Sabrina would show up to school with puke green hair- all thanks to Puck's pranking.
"Sabrina was also my first kiss." Puck confessed. "I kissed her when I was eleven. As soon as the kiss ended, she punched me in my stomach."
Jordan grinned widely at Sabrina. "Is that true?"
Sabrina could only nod- she was still in shock that Puck was giving a speech about her.
"As the years went on, Sabrina and I became closer and closer." Puck continued. "After three years of knowing each other, I asked her to go out with me. Surprisingly enough, she said yes."
"AWE!" Girls around the room said. Adrienne and Rachel were the loudest. Sabrina turned bright red- she didn't fail to notice the blush that was covering Puck's cheeks as well.
"So, Sabrina and I dated for awhile. I can honestly say that that was one of the happiest times of my life. I'm guessing that she was happy too- I mean, who wouldn't be? I'm freaking handsome." Puck said with a shrug.
Sabrina couldn't help but laugh. One thing that never changed about Puck was his ego.
As if Puck was telling a story, everyone in the room hung onto his every word.
"But soon enough, something happened that broke me and Sabrina apart. Sabrina had a friend named Mark. Mark was a pretty nice kid- until I caught him checking out my girlfriend. I warned him a couple times to lay off, but he didn't listen. One day, I caught him trying to kiss Sabrina. I beat the kid up right in front of her."
Cheers were heard from around the room. Sabrina winced, remembering how much bloodshed there had been- and it hadn't been Puck's blood.
"The truth is I did more than beat the kid up." Puck confessed. "…He was in the hospital for three months."
The room suddenly became incredibly quiet.
"Sabrina thought I was drunk when I beat him up. She thought that was the only excuse for me to hurt someone that badly. But I can assure you, I was completely sober at the time. I knew exactly what I was doing."
Sabrina put her head in her hands. She didn't consider even glancing at her friends to see their reactions.
"But what Sabrina doesn't know, is why I beat the kid up." Puck said. "The day before, I had overheard Mark and his friends talking about Sabrina. He had come up with a plan to seduce her."
Everyone gasped, and Sabrina snapped her head up to look at Puck. What plan? How come he hadn't told her this before?
"And at that moment, I heard some of the most sexually disturbing things I have ever heard in my entire life, and I still remember them to this day. The fact that someone could say something so… disgusting that involved my girlfriend made me furious. I could barely control my anger. So when I saw Mark trying to kiss Sabrina, I completely lost it."
Sabrina's eyes were wide, as was everyone else's in the room. She couldn't believe what she was hearing.
"I didn't want Sabrina to know that Mark and his friends had been talking about her in such a disgusting way, so I just never told her. For the past two years, she's thought that I beat up Mark because he was hitting on her." Puck continued.
"Why didn't you tell me?" Sabrina questioned, speaking up. "You should have told me."
"I would never tell you what the boys said, not for all the money in the world." Puck said quietly. "It would only make you feel violated."
Sabrina nodded, swallowing hard. She was shocked.
"So," Puck continued. "Sabrina hated me for the wrong reasons. And up until this moment, she still has. That's why we haven't been friends for two years. That's why we broke up."
Everyone nodded in understanding. Finally, things were making sense!
"But I'm not saying that this is Sabrina's fault." Puck said. "If anything, it's completely mine. After Sabrina broke up with me, I became a completely different person- a total jerk. I was always mean to her, and I stopped acting like myself because I hated the fact that Sabrina hated me. I became someone that I'm not. I think that's what she hates the most about me. For the past few weeks though, I've been trying to be a different person- just for Sabrina. But that's pretty hard to do when Sabrina Grimm hates you for all the wrong reasons." Puck said with a smirk. "You're too stubborn for your own good, Grimm."
Sabrina smiled, ducking her head. Her friends chuckled at her reaction.
"So, the whole point of this incredibly long speech was to apologize to Sabrina Grimm." Puck said. "Grimm, I'm sorry for every single time that I've hurt you over the past years. I'm sorry for turning into someone that I'm not, and I'm sorry for constantly being a jerk to you, okay? I'm sorry for every time I said I hated you, because truthfully, I never have and never will. But most of all, I'm sorry for being late."
"Late for what?" Sabrina asked. Her eyes were now watering.
"Late for apologizing to you." Puck said with a crooked smile. "I should've done this two years ago."
Loud cheers and claps were heard from around the room as Puck got down from the table.
"So, how was that?" Puck asked Scarlett.
"That's the most beautiful thing I've ever heard you say." Scarlett admitted, wiping tears from her eyes.
"Wait… are you crying?" Puck asked incredulously.
"Don't be stupid, I've been crying for five minutes straight." Scarlett admitted. "And I'm not the only one."
Puck looked around the room to find that other girls were wiping tears from their eyes. "What…?"
Scarlett smirked at his confusion. "Every single thing you said you truly meant. That's why Sabrina is going to forgive you."
"You really think she's going to forgive me?" Puck asked.
Scarlett gave him a strange look. "You're a moron, you know that? Of course she's going to forgive you! In fact, she already has."
Before Puck could say anything else, the bell rang.
As soon as the three o'clock bell rang, Sabrina dragged Rachel down the hallway towards the Little Theatre where practice was being held.
"What's going on?" Rachel protested.
"We have to get a good seat in the theatre, away from Robin." Sabrina insisted.
Rachel glared at her friend. "You're joking, right? He just poured his heart out to you, and now you're trying to avoid him?"
Sabrina rolled her eyes. "Of course not. I just don't want to be forced to talk to him while I'm around all of you guys. I'll talk to him when we're alone after practice."
Rachel smiled. "Good."
The two girls took their seats in the front of the theatre. Ten minutes later, everyone had filed into the room. Mrs. Burden immediately took her place on the stage.
"It's great to see you all! Today we're going to be practicing scenes 4 and 5, and then we'll begin on Act 2. Up on the stage I'll need Romeo, Benvolio, Mercutio, the five Maskers, the torchbearer, and the boy with the drum."
Puck and a group of nine other boys made their way to the stage. Sabrina immediately tuned them out, putting her headphones into her ears. She was lost in thought when someone suddenly tapped her on her shoulder. Sabrina turned around to find a depressed looking Adrienne.
"What's wrong with you?" Sabrina asked.
"I'm sick." Adrienne muttered. To prove her point she coughed loudly, grabbing the attention of people nearby.
"You seemed fine earlier." Rachel insisted.
"I know, I just started feeling like this during seventh period." Adrienne explained. "I feel like I'm going to die."
Rachel and Sabrina shared similar looks. "Don't get me sick!" They said in unison.
Adrienne rolled her eyes. "Glad to know that I have great friends who care so much about me."
"Okay okay, sorry. Come over later and I'll make you soup or something." Rachel said.
"Alright. So can someone explain to me what exactly happened with Robin Goodfellow earlier?" Adrienne questioned, looking purposefully at Sabrina.
"I'm pretty sure he explained the entire story." Sabrina joked.
"You know what I mean." Adrienne said seriously. "How come you never told us about this Mark kid? I would've knocked some sense into him…"
Sabrina and Rachel glanced at each other; they both knew that given the chance, Adrienne would do no such thing.
"I just didn't like to talk about it." Sabrina said with a shrug.
"Guys, I think we can leave…" Rachel trailed off, noticing that they were pretty much the only people left in the theatre. They had been so wrapped up in their conversation, that they hadn't noticed everyone had left.
"Oh crap!" Sabrina exclaimed. "I have to go find Robin! Wish me luck, guys."
"Good luck!" The two girls called after her as Sabrina raced out of the building.
Sabrina ran down the street, hoping that Puck hadn't taken the bus. The wind whipped at her hair and skin as she continued to run farther and farther away from the school. If Puck had taken the bus, she would look incredibly stupid.
Sabrina soon spotted Puck up ahead- his green hoody was hard to miss. She quickly ran up to him, and nearly bumped into his back.
Puck turned around, confused, until he saw it was Sabrina who had nearly managed to knock him over. "…"
"Hi." Sabrina said quietly.
"I'm an idiot." Sabrina said abruptly, stopping in her tracks.
"You're just now realizing this?" Puck said jokingly.
"No, seriously." Sabrina whispered. "I've been so mean to you for the past two years, and this whole time it was for no reason. I can't believe I would do something like that."
Puck didn't know what to say. To be honest, it hurt to see her that upset with herself.
"... It was my fault too." He said after a moment.
"I'm so sorry Puck." She whispered, her voice quavering. "I didn't know that…"
"Of course you didn't know that Mark was a psychotic ass hole who was trying to take advantage of you." Puck said quietly. "I didn't want you to know."
"But I've been so mean, and-"
"If I forgive you, will you stop crying?" Puck asked her softly. Puck had never been good with crying girls. Especially crying girls who were Sabrina.
Sabrina wiped at her eyes, noticing that she had in fact, been crying. "Yeah."
"Good. Now let's get home- I'm hungry." Puck complained.
"You're always hungry." Sabrina said pointedly.
"Thus the reason that we should get home quicker."
YAY! Puck & Sabrina don't hate each other anymore! FINALLY.
This chapter was so hard to write, especially Puck's confession- but I did it!
QotD: I'm working on a new fanfic for Sisters Grimm! It's actually going to be very unique. It's about everyone in the world turning into cannibalistic zombies, and Sabrina has to fend them off. Then she finds Puck, who is unzombiefied, and together they search for survivors. It's going to be a depressing story, but there will be Puckabrina. And no, I'm not joking. I'm seriously considering writing a fic like this. The question is, would you read this story? IF YOU'VE EVER SEEN THE MOVIE I AM LEGEND, THEN YOU'LL KNOW WHAT I MEAN. THIS STORY IS BASED OFF OF THE MOVIE/BOOK I Am Legend.
And now it's 3:30 in the morning, and I'm exhausted. So PEACE.
