Sorry for taking so long to update! My computer has a virus and most of my chapters got erased. =( My computer is temporarily down and I am posting this through my sister's (PlatonicallyYours9612) computer. Thank you to Sheechiibii for being a wonderful beta; Eshizzle for being so understanding for me being so slow in betaing hir awesome stories; Jjake09 for betaing for Eshizzle when I can't; and to all of my readers who have patiently been waiting for this new chapter!


Jesse came to see me right before our last performance of the night. I didn't think that things could get any more strenuous. First Santana sings a very…suggestive song to Brittany, and then Brittany's father passes out! Thankfully the new school nurse was here to take care of it. Then when Jesse started to trash Noah, Kurt threatened him in such a crude way that Santana backed him up! Oh my. I was very shocked when Mercedes said that Jesse was outside waiting for me; Finn wanted to kick his…butt. I had a better idea, one that involved me showing off my superior vocal talent.

I'm going to say good by to Jesse St. James for the last time in a way that he is sure to understand. There's this young singer named Shiloh that I recently heard of. I was looking up songs that had Goodbye in the title. It was a glee assignment to accompany last year's Hello assignment. I fill everyone in on the lyrics and some simple choreography. Mercedes finds an old boom box and Puck finds some speakers that we could hook it up to. They brought the equipment out side once we connected them with extension cords.

Everyone walks out before me and forms a semi-circle around the door, that way Jesse won't be able to see me once I walk out. I take a deep breath and compose myself before I walk outside. I can hear Jesse ask where I am. I wait a few seconds before I speak.

"I'm right here."

Finn and Puck separate to let me through. They take a new formation behind me. Half of them separate into pairs; Quinn and Finn, Puck and Santana, Tina and Artie. The rest of them spread out amongst the remaining cars behind Jesse.

"What is this Rachel?"

"This Jesse, is me saying goodbye to you in a way that you won't soon forget."

I walk over to the well concealed boom box and press play. As the first piano notes start, I walk back in front of the pairs. I turn to Puck and Santana for the first verse.

"You're like the guy on the phone in his Lamborghini

Talking with the male while his wife's on the other line

He will never say that really, really, truly loves her

He just doesn't have time"

Santana mouths the words to Puck while looking pointedly at Kurt. They are trying not to laugh as Kurt pulls out his phone and calls Puck. He answers as he puts a hand up as to stop Santana from speaking and starts talking to Kurt.

I stare right at Jesse for the next part.

"You're like the friend that was more like an enemy

An evil smile that will get you anything you need

No one will ever really know that they just don't have time

There's only so much abuse that I'm gonna take

You're wasting all my time!"

At first he looks confused, but then he starts looking affronted. Everyone joins in for the chorus, while staring at Jesse.

"Goodbye, you suck!

Never really liked you

No more "What's up?"

'Cause I don't care anymore

Goodbye, you suck

Said I never liked you S

o long, good luck!

Goodbye, you suck!"

I take a little liberty with the next verse; I change the she's to he's. I still look right at him.

"You're like the bully in my high school down the street

Living with the pain that is so damn hard to beat

He will never say that he's really, really, truly sorry he will never shine"

I turn to Tina and Artie for the next part. Their break-up was so sudden that it shocked most of us. I think this verse is good for him to tell her that he's not going to follow her like a love sick puppy anymore.

"You're like the phone call that I always seem to get

20 times a day, just convincing me to place a bet

But I'm not gonna answer, I'm not gonna answer

There's only so much abuse that I'm gonna take

You're wasting all my time!"

The second chorus comes on and we're all back to staring at Jesse.

"Goodbye, you suck!

Never really liked you

No more "What's up?"

'Cause I don't care anymore

Goodbye, you suck

Said I never liked you

So long, good luck!

Goodbye, you suck!

Goodbye, you suck!

Never really liked you

No more "What's up?"

'Cause I don't care anymore

Goodbye, you suck

Said I never liked you

So long, good luck!

Goodbye, you suck!

Goodbye, you suck!"

The girls sing the yeah, yeah, yeah's in the background.

"Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah"

Quinn looks at Finn for the last verse and I keep staring at Jesse. I walk straight up to him and sing it right in his face, poking him in the chest as I sing overrated.

"You were so overrated anyway

Way to perfect for my taste

I wish I could've seen this long ago

The happy ending's seeing you alone"

Kurt takes the last part of the verse as the rest of us jump into the chorus.

"There's only so much of this that I'm gonna take

You're wasting all my time!"

All the pairs split up and everyone stands right behind me.

"Goodbye, you suck!

Never really liked you

No more "What's up?"

'Cause I don't care anymore

Goodbye, you suck

Said I never liked you"

Jesse tries to speak.

"Baby I'm sorry; Baby I'm sor-"

We cut him off and continue singing,

"Goodbye, you suck!

Goodbye, you suck!

Never really liked you

No more "What's up?"

'Cause I don't care anymore"

The girls break off into the yeah, yeah, yeah's again as I finish the song by myself.

"Goodbye, you suck

Said I never liked you

So long, good luck!

Goodbye, you suck!

Goodbye, you suck!

Goodbye, you suck!

Goodbye, you suck!

Goodbye, you suck!

Goodbye, you suck!"

As the last chords ring out Jesse stares at us completely dumbfounded. I smile in triumph as realization dawns on his face.

"You're really over me."

It isn't a question.

"Yes I am. You were mean, underhanded, a backstabber, and a complete and utter…utter…"

I trail off as I can't think of the right word for him. Out of nowhere Brittany pops in and supplies a word for me.

"Whoremonger!"

We all stare at her for a second before I speak.

"Well no, but I guess that could work. Thank you Brittany. You were a complete and utter whoremonger."

Brittney beams and my praise, and Jesse scowls.

"I am not a whoremonger, that would better describe Puck."

Puck's indignant protest and Kurt's threats go seemingly unheard by Jesse, who is trying to glare me down.

"Calling you that really angers you, doesn't it?" I ask.

"What do you think!" He yells; we must have really gotten under his skin.

"I think she picked the right word if it makes you this mad. It may be childish to resort to name calling, but so was egging me."

With that said we all turn to depart, leaving an angry and confused Jesse St. James in our wake.
