Well no one told me about her how many people cried
But it's too late to say you're sorry
How would I know why should I care
Please don't bother tryin' to find her
She's not there
It had been a year since Finn found Rachel on that curve standing in the rain. She really had been a girl that wasn't there. No one could see her but him, and in doing so they had gone on a journey that changed both of them. Rachel was a girl that finally did exist. She was known at McKinley as Burt's niece, whose parents were killed in an accident while on vacation.
She was known as Finn Hudson's fiancée. After Mr. Schue had explained the unexplainable to Burt and Carole, they slowly came to believe the story, and when Finn wanted to propose, Carole agreed, as long as the marriage happened after high school graduation. She had given Finn the engagement ring his father had proposed to her with, and that ring was now proudly displayed on Rachel's left ring finger.
Rachel was also human again, no longer a succubus that had to rely on Finn to live, but she did rely on him to make her feel alive. She believed she had never felt so open and happy before, even though she couldn't remember her life before Finn found her.
Finn had changed too. He was physically back to his normal self. Rachel didn't need him to live, but Finn truly couldn't think of a life without the small brunette by his side, and by his side she was. Finn had changed his classes so that he would be with her, even if that meant taking AP classes and really having to study, like all the damn time, but it was worth it. He found out he really wasn't dumb, just uninspired to push himself, and after having Rachel in his life, he really was inspired.
One thing that remained even after the two becoming normal again, is that the two could communicate with each other even when they weren't talking. There were no secrets between them because of this. Finn would admit it caused him to get slapped a couple of times for being crud, but he was still a teenage boy. He had also noticed that when they made love, there was a subtle glow around them.
Finn and Rachel admittingly kept a wary eye on Mr. Schue and Coach Sylvester after everything that had transpired. Because no matter what, they had set everything good and bad that had happened in motion. Finn and Rachel still didn't know what was so important about them to have all of those things happen to them, but they knew that as long as they were together, then they would be able to handle it. Because if push ever came to shove, Please don't bother tryin' to find her
she's not there.
Again, thanks for all the reviews, alerts and favorites. They have so made this story for me. I even had Hannah-jennifer say that this was one of the best stories she had read. That made me grin ear to ear while dealing with another child home from school due to the stupid stomach bug.
I don't know when inspiration will strike me again. Probably while lifting weights and running at the Y again.
