Is Rachel just using him? Does he mind?

A Puck/Rachel fanfiction

Don't own anything


He was watching her sing again, he couldn't turn away and he caught himself doing that a lot. He had left his guitar in the auditorium and was going to go in a retrieve it when he heard that voice. That beautifully amazing voice. She was practicing her rendition of 'Defying Gravity' for what the Gleeks called a "diva-off" against Kurt. He couldn't see how she could lose; she was pouring her heart and soul into this song, as she did with every song she sang. Sure they had broken up. Rachel was in love with Finn, and Rachel assumed that he was in love with Quinn. Wrong. Noah Puckerman wasn't in love with Quinn at all; he was in love with the baby she was carrying inside of her. His baby. And unfortunately, he was also in love with that short-skirt, high-sock wearing know-it-all Gleek on that stage.

As he watched Rachel sing from backstage, he saw his guitar leaning against the railing. He reached out to grab it and just at that moment, Rachel had hit the most amazing note. He stared at her in awe. She was amazing. That was also the exact moment his guitar hit the floor with a deafening sound.

Rachel stopped singing and looker over at Noah.

"Sorry" Noah said picking up his guitar "I didn't want to disturb you. Just forgot my guitar Berry."

Rachel sighed. She looked a little stressed. "It's ok Puck. I was finished practicing anyways. I know this song like the back of my hand."

"Ok, well… If it means anything, you sounded really good. I mean, I doubt that Kurt could do better."

Rachel walked over to her backpack, pulling out her sweater. "Wont matter. Kurt is more popular than me. He'll win."

"Maybe not." Noah said, "umm, are you heading out?" He asked her. She nodded. "I'll walk you to your car. Not like I have football practice or anything."

Rachel nodded in understanding. Coach Tanaka had asked the guys to come back but Puck had refused. "ok thanks."

Together they walked out of the auditorium. "Don't you have to stop by your locker?" Rachel asked him.

"Why would I have to go to my locker?"

"Don't you have a bag? You know, with books and homework in it?"

"I'm not really a books and homework kind of guy Berry. You know that."

"But you're not playing football anymore. Have you thought about what you're going to do after highschool?"

Noah wasn't really sure if Rachel was just making small talk, or if she was really concerned about it. For now, he was going to go with the latter. "I dunno. I haven't really thought about it."

"well, you really should."

Together they made their way to the parking lot, "which one is your car?" He asked.

"Umm, its at the back. You really don't have to walk me, its fine." Rachel said.

Puck raised an eyebrow and continued to walk to the back of the parking lot. He stopped short. He knew exactly what can was hers. Her white car had been completely stained with purple, blue and pink slushie.

"What the hell?" Noah said, walking over to the car. "Who did this?" Sure he had thrown slushies in Rachels face, but he had never known what car was hers.

Rachel opened her trunk, watching slushie drip from it. She looked over to the football field. The football team, including Finn were all watching and laughing. Normally, Rachel would never cry over anything slushie related but Finn knew which car was hers. He had done this to her. And that hurt her more than anything.

"I'm going to kill him." She heard Noah mutter.

Rachel chased after him, "Noah, please. It's not worth it. Lets just get out of here. Please." She whispered to him, "please, get me out of here."

Noah smiled to himself. Finn had just done him a huge favor.


So, that's kind of the teaser first chapter. Let me know what you think.
