Near to You

I've always kinda been rooting for Rachel and Finn, but after last week's episode I'm not a big Finn fan. So I am now in the Rachel and Puck camp-yeah, I know they'll never get together on the show but they both got screwed with the whole Quinn pregnancy. So here is my little Rachel/Puck fantasy (please bear with me, it's been a while since I've done any writing so I'm a bit rusty to say the least). The title comes from Near to You by A Fine Frenzy. I hope you enjoy and I would love to know what you think!

Chapter 1

As the lights went out Rachel was filled with a high from performing, but felt lower then she normally feels after her daily Slurpy Facials. Find her someone to love? No, she already had someone to love. It was more like someone to love her.

As both the stage and house lights came back on she pasted her smile back on, she had always been a good actor. But as soon as the curtain dropped and everyone began to celebrate, she slipped off to the wings and ran back to the choir room. She grabbed her tote bag filled with her clothes and purse and ran out to the student parking lot. It wasn't until she was unlocking her car that she finally let the tears drop.

She was back in Glee, back being the star, but at what cost? She knew that Finn had Quinn, but she thought that she might still have a chance, after all Quinn was an uber-bitch and it was only a matter of time until he saw that. Little did Rachel know that there is no chance what-so-ever. Quinn is now knocked up with Finn's baby, and Finn is doing anything to protect them, even if that means playing her. How was it possible to hate him so much for that, but still want him so badly?

Rachel was really not looking forward to Monday, but at least no one saw her run out of there like she did. She'll just think of something to tell them if they ask, which they probably won't. They'll just figure she had one of her diva fits and never have a second thought about it. After all, everyone thought Rachel Berry was just the Glee freak prone to Diva fits who had a knack wearing plaid skirts and a smile, not that she could possibly ever feel a real emotion.

As the curtain dropped he turned to his right to see Finn and Quinn hugging and turned away in disgust. What was he suppose to do? It was his kid and he was ready to man up and accept the consequences, only Quinn wouldn't let him. And it's not like he could talk to anyone, it was his friend's girl who he knocked up. Yeah, that totally made him an ass, but Finn had been doing the Glee thing and Puck had seen the way he had been looking at Rachel. He was so caught up in his thoughts he almost missed her running out. What was with that girl and all of her freak-outs?

So Chapter 1 was a short little intro into what I'm thinking. I hope you liked it! I should have Chapter 2 later.
