Ah, it's the end : ( This might be my last story for awhile since I'm going back to school at the end of the month, but I just wanted to say how much I've enjoyed writing these characters for you, especially my OTP Rachel and Finn. Thank you all so much for reading, and take comfort in the fact that in a month and a half you'll be seeing these characters in action for real. Toodles!
"Oh my goodness, look at how cute you guys are!" Carole beamed. Finn and Rachel were all decked out in their sectionals costumes and killing some time backstage with the parents. "Honey do you see how cute they are?"
"So, are you guys nervous?" Mr. Hudson said.
"Mr. Hudson I once landed a toe-touch basket toss off a legally blind base during a benefit for handicapable male cheerleaders, I can handle anything" Rachel insisted.
"I pretty much just sing" Finn shrugged.
"Honey, I just wanted to say how proud I am of you. I know you're going to do great" Leroy said.
"Thank you daddy"
"And I know you're going to do great too Finn" Leroy continued, offering a friendly handshake.
"Thanks Mr. Berry."
"Okay. We're going to go take our seats. Good luck out there." Mr. Hudson said before starting off with Mrs. Hudson and Leroy.
As the parents left the backstage area Rachel made sure that nobody was looking before grabbing Finn's tie and leading him out of view of the others.
"Rachel what are you doin—
Before Finn could finish Rachel surprised him with a long kiss, he still wasn't quite used to the fact that he could kiss Rachel Berry any time he wanted but he tried not to let his nervousness get to him.
"Rach what are you doing?" he said as she finally let him up for air.
"What? It calms my nerves" she shrugged.
"I thought you weren't nervous" he teased.
"It came on all of a sudden" she continued.
Finn raised his eyebrows skeptically.
"Would you shut up and take advantage already?"
"Yes ma'am" He said pressing his lips to hers. He grabbed her around the waist and hoisted her up, allowing her to wrap her legs around him for support.
"Really glad you decided to be nervous" he said, gasping for breath as she pulled away.
"Where do you think they are?" Artie said as Tina helped him with his make-up.
"Probably somewhere making out" She shrugged.
"Hey, they stole our idea" Artie said.
"Well, curtains in five" Will said. Puck, Quinn could you go find Finn and Rachel?
Puck and Quinn groaned before starting off together.
"I swear to god if we can't go on because of them—
"Wait, are you actually worried that you won't get to perform?" Quinn interrupted.
"What? I don't want all of the hard work I put in to be for nothing. If I have to be in this stupid club at least I can get a trophy out of it" Puck said.
"Wow, Puck I have to say you might actually be growing up a little."
"So, does that mean…
"Puck, we're not keeping it" she interrupted, having gone through the same conversation with him countless times.
"I'm just saying, check us out. Our kid's going to be diaper commercial cute, giving her up is just money down the drain."
"Okay, maybe you haven't grown up as much as I thought" Quinn teased.
Before he could respond they spotted Rachel and Finn in the middle of what looked like a pretty intense makeout session.
"Do you losers want to get a move on?" Puck said, startling the two amorous teenagers. Rachel quickly jumped out of Finn's arms and pulled down the hem of her dress while Finn nervously adjusted his tie.
"Oh, yea—of course. Um, shall we Finn?" Rachel stammered.
"Totally" Finn agreed.
They rejoined the group just in the nick of time. As they took their places outside the curtain, ready to go on, Finn and Rachel approached each other for one final moment before the show.
"Break a leg" Finn said
"I love you" Rachel responded.
The End (for real this time)
