I walked towards the side door to the auditorium to go play the piano, something I did when I was at boarding school. When I got to the door, I heard voices talking so I opened it quietly to figure out who it was, where they were, if it looked like they would be there long, etc. When I looked around the room, my eyes stopped on the two figures standing on the stage. After a few seconds I recognized them to be Finn and Quinn, but they didn't see me. I couldn't hear what they were saying but they seemed to be in their own world, before he reached out and closed the distance between them. Shocked, I slowly and quietly closed the door and leaned my forehead against the door jam. I wasn't sure what to do, Quinn is cheating on Sam, one of my first friends at McKinley. I heard the sound of them leaving through other doors, luckily, and finally walked into the room fully. I walked up the steps to the stage, and walked over to the piano. I set my bag down next to the bench and lifted the cover off of the keys, playing a few notes to check the sound and everything. Then I took a deep breath and played the intro to one of my favorite songs to play, and to sing. As I play the intro to the song, I smile before taking a deep breath and singing.

Waking up I see that everything is OK

The first time in my life and now it's so great

Slowing down I look around and I am so amazed

I think about the little things that make life great

I wouldn't change a thing about it

This is the best feeling

[Chorus]

This innocence is brilliant

I hope that it will stay

This moment is perfect

Please don't go away

I need you now

And I'll hold on to it

Don't you let it pass you by

I felt someone sitting next to me and looked over to see Dave smiling at me, and I returned it before singing the next line, slightly to him.

I found a place so safe, not a single tear

The first time in my life and now it's so clear

Feel calm, I belong, I'm so happy here

It's so strong and now I let myself be sincere

I wouldn't change a thing about it

This is the best feeling

This innocence is brilliant

I hope that it will stay

This moment is perfect

Please don't go away

I need you now

And I'll hold on to it

Don't you let it pass you by

It's a state of bliss, you think you're dreaming

It's the happiness inside that you're feeling

It's so beautiful it makes you wanna cry

It's a state of bliss, you think you're dreaming

It's the happiness inside that you're feeling

It's so beautiful it makes you wanna cry

It's so beautiful it makes you wanna cry

This innocence is brilliant

Makes you wanna cry

This innocence is brilliance

Please don't go away

Cause I need you now

And I'll hold on to it

Don't you let it pass you by

This innocence is brilliant

I hope that it will stay

This moment is perfect

Please don't go away

I need you now

And I'll hold on to it

Don't you let it pass you by

I finished playing the last notes and turned to Dave and smiled when he told me that he heard me singing, and came to investigate. I decided to ask him for advice on the Sam/Quinn situation, just to help me figure out what I am going to do about it.

"Hey, what would you do if you know your friend's SO is cheating on them, would you tell them or like confront the person cheating?" I looked at him and he looked at the piano thoughtfully, before replying.

"Well, confrontation doesn't always end well, but people don't usually want to believe that the person they're in a relationship with is cheating on them. Telling the truth usually ends better than confrontation though, so telling them the truth is probably the better of the two options. Why?" He looked back at me in curiosity, and I sighed before looking back at him.

"Don't tell anyone, but its Quinn and Finn, she's cheating on Sam, and he's been super nice to me since I got here and I don't want to hurt him by telling him the truth. But if he finds out that I knew, and I didn't tell him, he could get mad at me anyway. I don't know what to do." He nodded before reaching over to put my hands back on the keys and nodding towards the piano, letting me know he wanted me to play something. I did, and he smiled before telling me not to worry, I'll know what to do when the time comes, before standing up and walking out of the auditorium, through the door backstage. I turned back to the piano and continued playing instrumental piano versions of different songs, before I started playing another song that I wanted to sing to. Just before I started singing, I heard the door open and someone walked in. When I looked up to see who it is, I saw Sam walking towards me smiling, before sitting down in the spot Dave just left and singing with me.

Me:

You're the light, you're the night

You're the color of my blood

You're the cure, you're the pain

You're the only thing I wanna touch

Never knew that it could mean so much, so much

Sam:

You're the fear, I don't care

'Cause I've never been so high

Follow me through the dark

Let me take you past our satellites

You can see the world you brought to life, to life

Both:

So love me like you do, lo-lo-love me like you do

Love me like you do, lo-lo-love me like you do

Touch me like you do, to-to-touch me like you do

What are you waiting for?

Both:

Fading in, fading out

On the edge of paradise

Every inch of your skin is a holy grail I've got to find

Sam:

Only you can set my heart on fire, on fire

Me:

Yeah, I'll let you set the pace

'Cause I'm not thinking straight

My head's spinning around I can't see clear no more

What are you waiting for?

Both:

Love me like you do, lo-lo-love me like you do (like you do)

Love me like you do, lo-lo-love me like you do

Touch me like you do, to-to-touch me like you do

What are you waiting for?

Love me like you do, lo-lo-love me like you do (like you do)

Love me like you do, lo-lo-love me like you do (yeah)

Touch me like you do, to-to-touch me like you do

What are you waiting for?

Sam:

I'll let you set the pace

Me:

'Cause I'm not thinking straight

Both:

My head's spinning around I can't see clear no more

me

What are you waiting for?

Both:

Love me like you do, lo-lo-love me like you do (like you do)

Love me like you do, lo-lo-love me like you do (yeah)

Touch me like you do, to-to-touch me like you do

What are you waiting for?

Love me like you do, lo-lo-love me like you do (like you do)

Love me like you do, lo-lo-love me like you do (oh)

Touch me like you do, to-to-touch me like you do

Both:

What are you waiting for?

He smiled at me before joining me playing piano, and we continued to sing together for a while before we just played and talked. We sat and talked for a while, just playing different instrumental versions of songs, before he had to leave to meet up with Quinn. It took everything in me not to say anything other than goodbye and to have a good day, before grabbing my stuff and going back to school when my free period is over.
