Chapter 7

This is a little bit of a sad chapter.

Puck was waiting for the dude to answer and when he didn't answer automatically, he was about to punch him when he felt Lauren slide her hand into his. That made him calm down and Lauren walked them over to sit by Sam and Rachel. Rachel was crying and Sam was holding her as tightly as he could, he knew that she didn't need to be upset and was protecting her.

They sat in the waiting room for three hours when the doctor finally comes out. He is covered in blood and had a sad expression on his face.

Dr, The family of Quinn Fabrey?
Lauren, "I am her step sister. How is she?"

Dr. I am sorry she died and we tried everything that we could to save her. She had internal bleeding and blood in her brain. There was nothing for us to do.

After the doctor said that Lauren fell to the floor crying. Puck stood there shocked, he didn't know what to feel. Sam held onto Rachel more tightly now. Puck bent down to Lauren and whispered something to Lauren and helped her stand.

Lauren, "I would like to see my sister" crying and holding onto Puck as tight as she could

The Dr. lead Puck and Lauren to Quinn's room. As they stood there crying, Rachel and Sam told the others the news. No one could believe that she was dead until Lauren walked back in. Puck was doing his best to hold his girlfriend up and he knew she needed to get out of there. He walked them over to Mr. Shue and took Beth and told them that he was taking his girls home.

Sam, " I am taking Rachel home also. She needs to rest for the baby."

That night Puck wouldn't let Beth or Lauren out of her sight and Sam was the same way with Rachel. Sam was going crazy because all Rachel wanted to do was cry and Sam didn't understand why. He knew how Quinn treated her and but yet his sweet Rachel forgave her and she felt sorry for Quinn.

Sam, " baby?"
Rachel, " what Sam?"
Sam, " how can I help you?"
Rachel, " will you sing for me?"

Sam thought for a moment and he thought of the perfect song to sing.

I was walking home from school on a cold winter's day
Took a shortcut through the woods and I lost my way
It was getting late and I was scared and alone
Then a kind old man took my hand and led me home
Mama couldn't see him, but he was standing there
But I knew in my heart, he was the answer to my prayers

Oh I believe there are angels among us
Sent down to us from somewhere up above
They come to you and me in our darkest hours
To show us how to live
To teach us how to give
To guide us with a light of love

When life dealt troubled times and had me down on my knees
There's always been someone there to come along and comfort me
A kind word from a stranger to lend a helping hand
A phone call from a friend just to say I understand
Ain't it kind of funny at the dark end of the road
Someone lights the way with just a single ray of hope

Oh I believe there are angels among us
Sent down to us from somewhere up above
They come to you and me in our darkest hours
To show us how to live
To teach us how to give
To guide us with a light of love

They wear so many faces
Show up in the strangest places
Grace us with thier mercy
In our time of need

Oh I believe there are angels among us
Sent down to us from somewhere up above
They come to you and me in our darkest hours
To show us how to live
To teach us how to give
To guide us with a light of love

When he was singing he laid down by her and they both cried for the friend that they wished that they had but also cried because the world would never know how nice and caring Quinn Fabrey could have been.

Over the next week they had to plan and go to a funeral and everyone was worried about Lauren and Rachel. Lauren was eating, wrestling and Rachel refused to sing. Puck did all he could and he just had to wait for Lauren to talk to him and Sam was doing the same.

It was a three weeks after Quinn's funeral that Lauren walked up to Rachel and smiled softly at her.

Rachel, " hey"

Lauren, " how are you and the baby?"
Rachel, " Sam is making sure that I don't forget to eat. How are you? "
Lauren, " I am dealing. I know that I need to grieve and move on. Noah and Beth need me to be strong and I am trying to get where I can help Noah like he helped me."
Rachel, "Lauren, you don't have to be the strong one all the time."
Lauren, " I know. Puck has done everything for me. He has watched Beth, helped me pack up some stuff of Quinn's for Beth. I need to let him know that he can grieve now for the person he loved. I want to sing a song for him to show him how much I am greatful and how much I love him"

Rachel, " Can I sing it with you for Sam"

They thought hard and long for a song and finally Lauren came up with a perfect one.

They walked into Glee smiling for the first time since the accident and when Puck and Sam saw this they smiled.
Puck, " You ok baby girl?"
Lauren, Yah. I have a song Rachel and I will sing for you to show you how much I love you and appreciate everything that you have done for me.

Everyone was anxious as to what the girls would sing. Lauren started it and Rachel did the chorus.

I wanna wake up each morning
With you for the rest of my life
I wanna feel your heart beating
And just get lost in your eyes
You can tell me your secrets
You can let me feel your pain
You can show me your weakness
And never be ashamed

Hold on to me when your world's turnin' cold
When it feels like your life's spinnin' out of control
You're hopin', prayin', tryin' so hard to believe
Hold on to me when there's no middle ground
And every emotion is comin' unwound
And you don't know if you can hold on to your dreams
Baby you can hold on to me

I wanna lay down each evenin'
With you right here by my side
I wanna get drunk on your laughter
And wipe all the tears when you cry
You can scare me with your darkness
You can blind me with your light
Throw your worries out the window baby
On your wildest night

Hold on to me when your world's turnin' cold
When it feels like your life's spinnin' out of control
You're hopin', prayin', tryin' so hard to believe
Hold on to me when there's no middle ground
And every emotion is comin' unwound
And you don't know if you can hold on to your dreams
Baby you can hold on to me

Hold on to me when there's no middle ground
And every emotion is comin' unwound
And you don't know if you can hold on to your dreams
Baby you can hold on I said
Baby you can hold on I said
Baby you can hold on to me

Puck and Sam walked up to their girlfriends and hugged them. Sam kissed Rachel and Finn looked on jealous but he knew in his heart that Rachel deserved to be happy.

Sam, " Now that you two sung, it is mine and Puck's turn.

When a man loves a woman
Can't keep his mind on nothing else
He'll trade the world
For the good thing he's found
If she's bad he can't see it
She can do no wrong
Turn his back on his best friend
If he put her down

When a man loves a woman
Spend his very last dime
Tryin' to hold on to what he needs
He'd give up all his comfort
Sleep out in the rain
If she said that's the way it ought to be

Well, this man loves a woman
I gave you everything I had
Tryin' to hold on to your precious love
Baby, please don't treat me bad

When a man loves a woman
Down deep in his soul
She can bring him such misery
If she plays him for a fool
He's the last one to know
Lovin' eyes can't ever see

When a man loves a woman
He can do no wrong
He can never own some other girl
Yes when a man loves a woman
I know exactly how he feels
'Cause baby, baby, baby, you're my world

When a man loves a woman...

Everyone in class clapped. They knew that their group would get stronger because of the pain that they just had to go through. No one would believe what would happen to make Sam and Rachel fight.
