Fic: Rachel Needs Some Action
Chapter 12: Meet (all) the Parents
Disclaimer: I do not own Glee.
Summary: Tina thinks that Rachel needs to get some action. Rachel's just been busy. But when Santana comes into the picture, Rachel seems to be less busy.
They aren't sure whose bright idea it was to drive back to Lima for the Fabray's summer pool party (four of the five passengers are pointing their finger at Tina). Granted they did land in Cleveland, Ohio (instead of somewhere closer to Lima) and there are only like three more hours of drive time. But these passengers are New Yorkers now...
"I am pretty sure you can drive just a little bit faster Tina." Mike cautiously suggests.
"Mike. The speed limit is 65 mph." says Tina.
Quinn notes out loud, "but you're driving 60 mph."
Tina shouts, "Hey! No back seat drivers."
Santana mumbles, "I am not going to say anything about Asian drivers." (Mike throws his empty Doritos bag at her. But it hits Rachel.)
Rachel (after removing chip crumbs from her shirt) says, "Tina, you should drive a bit faster. At this rate we will be at least 30 minutes behind schedule and that doesn't include any rest stops that we may have to take. Which is likely since Quinn just finished her Slurpee. Which! I am appalled that you actually like to drink."
"It's grape though." Quinn demurely says.
Santana reaches over Rachel and punches Quinn in the arm. Quinn flicks Santana on the nose.
Rachel shouts, "Tina! Speed it up, before these two kill each other."
Tina calmly says, "Look I just passed a sign that said: Speed Enforced by Aircraft." (They can practically hear Santana roll her eyes). Tina continues to say, "I don't want a helicopter to land on this rental car and give me a ticket!"
Quinn says, "I will represent you in court if that happens."
Tina says, "You aren't a lawyer yet. And! I am the only one in this car that has a perfect driving record so! I get to drive the way I want."
"If you do not speed up this vehicle I will go ALL Lima Heights on your ass." (That was Santana).
"Your threats mean nothing. Rachel would never let you hurt me." Tina says confidently.
Quinn mumbles, "Whipped." (Santana glares at Quinn).
Rachel shouts, "I will do the irritable bowel syndrome commercial if you drive 80 mph!"
"Oh my good Lord and baby Jesus." says Quinn.
Santana laughs, "Holy shit. Quinn. You're Mom is crazy."
They finally arrive at the Fabray's home (on time actually). The house is covered in balloons and streamers and there is a sign in the front yard that says: Happy Birthday Baby Girl!
(It's no ones birthday).
They park and there is music blaring from the backyard of the Fabray's home. Children are running in and out of the house. Some stop and say hi to Quinn as they recognize their neighbor.
Mike is unloading the bags and somehow takes all of the bags into the house. The girls slowly follow him in.
Judy Fabray is running down the hall welcoming the group and shouting, "My Baby Girl!"
And then tons of people (Quinn's neighbors) are crowding around and saying hello and cheering the New Yorkers' arrival.
Santana is laughing her head off.
That is until Mrs. Lopez is seen running down the hall shouting, "Santana! Mi niña!"
Everyone is hugging and kissing and it's just, chaos. Even Tina and Mike's parents are there. It's just a full house.
Rachel is stunned. She is being kissed by Mrs. Fabray and Mrs. Lopez and even Mrs. Cohen-Chang and Mrs. Chang.
Mrs. Fabray is ushering everyone outside.
Rachel holds back and Mike reappears. "You okay Rachie?"
"Yes, I am ok. Thank you for bringing in our bags. This is just, a lot of people!"
"I know what you mean, it gets claustrophobic at times." Mike smiles and guides her to the cigar room.
Mike's dad is shooting the breeze with Mr. Cohen-Chang, Mr. Lopez and her dads. She smiles at Mike because he knew that she would need her dads.
"Hi sweet pea! How was the drive?" says Hiram as he hugs his daughter tight.
"Hello everyone! We made it alive."
Leroy turns to Mr. Lopez and says, "This is our Rachel."
Mr. Lopez stands up to hug Rachel and says, "Hello, Ms. Berry. Maribel tells me wonderful things about you. Santana just repeats that she thinks you're muy bonita."
Everyone laughs. Rachel blushes.
Santana is walking the hall and she's shouting for Rachel. She's looking for her girlfriend.
Mr. Lopez laughs and says, "Sounds like my baby is looking for you Rachel."
Santana pops her head in the room and smiles and says, "Rachel! Papi!" (more hugs).
Santana asks, "What are you guys doing in here? Mom wants to start the piñata."
Mr. Lopez is rolling his eyes. Rachel gets that Santana takes after her dad.
Mike is blindfolded and trying to hit the piñata (Leroy and Maribel are controlling it). All the neighborhood kids are cheering him on.
Santana and Rachel changed into their bathing suits and are lounging on the grassy knoll next to the pool. Tina has appointed herself as the bartender for this event.
Rachel is watching Hiram bbq with Mr. Lopez. Everyone looks like they are getting along.
Quinn sits next to Rachel and Santana. She has white sunblock on her nose and big black sunglasses, "I didn't know that this was going to be a huge get together."
Santana laughs, "This isn't huge. This is normal compared to my family get togethers."
Rachel smiles, "It is certainly not what I thought. The entire block is in attendance and I just wonder at all the preparation and planning that went into it on Mrs. Fabray's behalf. I am pleased though that my parents are getting along with Santana's. I was going to propose a quiet family introduction at a nice restaurant. But this appears to be a good alternative."
"Is it something in Lima's air that makes you use paragraphs instead of sentences to explain thing?" asks Quinn.
Santana punches Quinn.
Someone found a guitar.
Mr. Lopez is playing Selena's I Could Fall in Love. All the mothers are practically swooning (again Rachel can tell that Santana is definitely her father's daughter).
Soon after, Santana and her mom join in song with Mr. Lopez. They all sound so good together.
Hiram and Leroy walk up to Rachel.
Leroy says, "Look, they sing together like we do!"
Hiram adds, "A family that sings together, stays together."
Rachel happily sighs, "I concur."
"So, Mom. What's with the Happy Birthday Baby Girl sign?" asks Quinn.
"Oh well, I went shopping with Maribel, to get the piñata and the birthday section was having a sale! So I just had to get it!" says Mrs. Fabray.
"Great idea Mrs. Fabray! I loved the party! The chicken wings are delicioso!" Tina shouts.
"Tina! Wonderful pronunciation!" says Maribel.
The neighbors are gone and now it's just the "immediate" family hanging around Mrs. Fabray's kitchen. Santana is holding Rachel from behind as Rachel is mixing cookie dough from scratch. Quinn is sitting on the counter stealing the chocolate chips from Rachel's mix (every once in awhile Santana slaps Quinn).
In the living room, Mike and Mrs. Chang are teaching Hiram how to do the dougie. Mr. Chang is sitting on the couch just smirking.
Mr. Lopez is eating chicken wings with Tina at the kitchen island. Maribel and Judy are washing dishes.
The Cohen-Chang's and Hiram are sitting by the grand piano and singing All I Ask of You from the Phantom of the Opera.
Somehow, Judy gets Quinn to sing Ain't No Mountain High Enough as she plays piano accompaniment.
Santana has to literally hold Rachel back as she goes into crazy hyper excited mode and starts a sign-up sheet for an impromptu talent show.
Mr. Lopez is the second to sign-up (after Rachel of-course) and Rachel just gives him the biggest smile.
Everyone goes back to their respected homes. It's almost like Santana is a highschooler when she asks for permission to go over to Rachel's house. Mr. Lopez laughs and just kisses his daughters forehead and winks at Rachel. Rachel really likes him.
"Ok, so what I love about this scene is that you can get the full emotion from just the close up on her eyes." Hiram explains.
Rachel and Santana are sitting on the couch with Hiram and Leroy. They are watching Cats.
Hiram is explaining it to Santana.
Rachel is just smiling the whole time because she knows Santana is just being a good sport. Leroy passes Santana a beer.
Santana thanks Leroy with full emotion in her eyes.
Rachel shows off her room to Santana. Vanna White style: sashaying her arms and displaying her ribbon's wall and her playbill collection.
Santana nods and takes it all in. Then she tackle hugs Rachel.
"I thought we'd never get a moment alone!"
"Santana, you're going to bruise me with your aggressiveness!"
Santana just laughs. Rachel knows the dirty thoughts in Santana's mind and just slaps her.
"So...where is your bed?" asks Santana. Rachel just shakes her head, because it's obvious where the bed is. Rachel playfully drags her to the bed and they both snuggle together.
Once they are relaxed Rachel says, "My Dads really love you."
"My parents love you too. I've never seen my Dad show off so much. He must have wanted to impress you."
"Because he knows I like you a lot."
Rachel doesn't know how to respond with words. So she just kisses Santana. Santana smiles and happily sighs.
"I hope I get the part." Rachel whispers.
"You'll get it. You killed the audition."
"Thanks for supporting me."
"Hey, you support me when you come to my gigs. We'z gotz to stick together. You're my girl."
Rachel walks Santana to her front door.
"I wish I could stay." says Santana.
"You should." teases Rachel.
"But my curfew!" jokes Santana.
"Go home then sneak back into my room!" jokes Rachel.
"Ok, no seriously if you keep your window open I will sneak in." says Santana (seriously).
Rachel laughs. "I don't doubt it. But I'll meet up with you and your family for breakfast. Promise. My Dads just want to spend a little time with me right now."
"Can I call you tonight?"
They kiss on the porch. Rachel massages Santana's back and Santana is caressing Rachel's neck. Rachel thinks that her knees are going to give out just about the time Santana starts kissing her neck. Rachel kneads her hands into Santana's lower back and Santana just growls into Rachel's neck. When Santana makes her way back to Rachel's lips, Rachel just invites it. Rachel finds that she likes gently biting Santana's lower lip then sucking and massaging it with her tongue. Rachel can feel Santana move her hands down her neck and slowly making it to her chest. Rachel really wants Santana to touch her. Really bad.
The porch lights flicker.
Rachel shouts, "Oh come on!"
A/N: I couldn't resist.
FYI - I got finals coming up so...I'll be busy.
Happy Pezberry Week! Thank you for all your lovely reviews. You are all so sweet :D
