Hey. Family life is all sorted, kind of, but I now have a little bit more time on my hands to write. I've recently developed a little bit of a crush on Dijon Talton who plays Matt so I started this fan fic.
Disclaimer- I only own my Glee soundtrack.
I Like The Feelin' You're
Just Hold Me Baby And I'm
Oh I'll Be Workin' From Nine
To Buy You Things To Keep
You By My Side
I Never Felt So In Love Before
Just Promise Baby, You'll
Love Me Forevermore
I Swear I'm Keepin' You
'Cause You're The One For Me
It was three months after sectionals and we watched the six boys dance around with Puck and Finn singing versus to one of Michael Jackson's best songs. We girls sat on the chairs clapping and laughing as Mike and Matt pulled out all the Jackson dance moves. Brittany burst into a fit of uncontrollable giggles as Puck, came in front of her serenading her with the words and thrusting his hips. Puck had made it public knowledge that he had a crush on the ditzy blonde a month after sectionals but was still failing in her attempts to woo her. Puck had realised his feelings for Quinn weren't real but more to do with his love for his unborn daughter who he now was being allowed to be involved with. Finn was trying not to laugh as he sang his eyes flickering repeatedly to the back corner.
Quinn admitted to me that she was shocked that Finn and I hadn't gotten together. To be honest I wasn't. They day Quinn and Puck announced they weren't entering a relationship; Finn and I kissed and it felt awkward. Like kissing a sibling and we both agreed to keep things platonic. After the whole sectionals drama Quinn and I had become friends and even closer when it became apparent I wasn't going after Finn anymore. Even though she didn't have those feelings for him anymore she did at the time. I had also became strangely close to Brittany; where her lack of knowledge could be considered dumb she knew the things that mattered to her and those she loved and she was actually rather funny. Mercedes and Kurt were still their diva selves with Mercedes being considerably colder towards me as months passed; Quinn advised me to ignore it; so that is what I did. Kurt was the one in Glee club that had changed dramatically since sectionals; at the sectionals after party Kurt met Jesse St. James; vocal adrenalines main star. They had been dating ever since; we didn't trust Jesse but he made Kurt happy so we let them be.
"That was amazing guys." Mr. Shue exclaimed as the boy's performance came to halt. We all clapped along with him, the boys did really well with this week's assignment.
"I'll see you tomorrow" Mr. Shue dismissed us and Quinn and I headed to the mall.
"Rachel you have to buy that. It will drive the males in McKinley crazy." Quinn said indicating to the Red and black skirt and camisole combo I currently had on.
"I don't know Q." I took in my reflection in the mirror.
"Damn Rachel you look good." Two voices said from behind us. Turning we sat Matt and Mike leaning against the wall with identical looks of innocence on their faces. Quinn blushed as she saw Mike and I smirked knowing of her crush on the Asian dancer. My eyes settled on Matt who was smiling at me shyly with a reddish tinge to his dark skin. Matt was the quiet one out of the group and being a jock that surprised me. But then again he wasn't your stereotypical jock.
"Hi guys." We greeted walking towards them. Quinn's hands were resting self consciously on her belly. Quinn didn't want to approach Mike with her feelings because she didn't think he would accept her little girl now that Quinn has decided to keep her along with the help from Puck and Mr. Shuester. Quinn had moved into Mr. Shuester's spare bedroom after he legally adopted her last month. Quinn had been handed papers from her parents in the middle of Glee rehearsal that revoked all their parental rights to her, luckily she found an excellent Father in Mr. Shue.
"Quinn, Rachel, bump." Mike greeted us laughing as he bent down to greet Quinn's baby bump. Quinn giggled and patted her stomach affectionately and entered a conversation with Mike when he asked about her pregnancy.
"What are you doing here?" I asked Matt after a moments silence he was staring at his feet but his head shot up when I spoke.
"Oh it's my sister's birthday on Friday. Mike and I were looking for a gift." I nodded.
"Do you require some assistance?" He nodded enthusiastically. "I'll just go change." When I was back in my pink plaid skirt and white jumper I met with Matt again who was where I left him.
"Quinn was craving ice cream so Mike took her to get some." Matt and I shopped in compatible silence as we shopped for his sister's birthday present. Matt repeatedly opened his mouth to say something but every time he just shook his head and a downcast look would enter his eyes.
We finally found a gift for his sister; it was a rare album of her favourite band. We could see Quinn and Mike waving at us from the front of the ice cream booth so we made our way towards them.
"Are you okay Matt?" I asked as we walked towards them. Matt stopped and turned to face me a look of determination on his face.
"Will you go out with me sometime?" He said in a rush. I just stood there staring at him. I had never been more shocked in my life. Matt had never given any indication that he held romantic feelings for me. As I looked at him Matt's face started to slip into a mask of hurt and embarrassment. "Shit. I'm sorry, forget I said anything. I'll see you at school tomorrow Rachel." He muttered before walking away and out of the mall. I vaguely saw Mike go after him shouting a goodbye as we went. I was still too shocked.
"What just happened?" Quinn's voice said from beside me.
"I have absolutely no idea."
Quinn and I had headed over to my place after the events at the mall. Once we were situated in my bedroom I filled her in on what Matt had said.
"You didn't know?" She blurted out, I dropped the clean laundry I was holding an stared at her.
She had a sheepish grin on her face. "Everyone knew Matt's had a thing for you since he saw you perform Push It." I grimaced at the memory. "At first he thought it was just lust but then he joined Glee Club and as he spent more and more time around you he realised his feelings were more than lust. You can see it in his eyes when he looks at you. When you speak, he just smiles you know? His whole attention is dedicated to you. It's just so obvious." Now I felt so bad.
"Q. You should have seen his face, he was so hurt. What do I do?"
"Well think about it? If you hadn't been so shocked what would you have said?"
I thought about Matt for a moment. Matt was sweet and kind, charming and hilarious, talented and gorgeous. I just don't know why I had never noticed that before.
"I would have said yes."
So that's the first chapter. Let me know if I should continue
