It was a winter morning. The Glee Club went on a field trip to a lake. The lake was frozen and everyone had brought ice skates. As they got off the bus, Will took Emma's hand in his.
"You know there's nothing nicer than winter," Emma smiled.
"Well there's you," Will added.
Emma giggled and Will hugged her.
"So what do you say? Want to go ice skating?" He asked.
"I don't know... It looks fun, but I'm scared," Emma admitted.
"There's nothing to be afraid of, I'll be there with you," Will replied.
"Okay, let's go," She smiled.
Will and Emma joined the students on the ice. Everyone was laughing and smiling. Emma took one step and nearly fell. Will caught her and smiled.
"Take my hands," He offered.
She took his hands and as she ice skated, he made sure she was okay.
There was then a crack and a splash.
"Rachel!" Finn shouted.
Will looked at the ice where Rachel had been. Finn instantly dived in. Will ran to the scene and waited. A minute later Finn's head broke the surface, gasping. Rachel's body was in his arms.
Rachel was pale white, her eyes were closed and her body completely limp. Will grabbed her body and set it down on solid ice. Sam and Puck pulled Finn out of the water.
Will lay Rachel on her back and felt for a pulse. He let out a deep relieved sigh when he managed to find a pulse, but it was very faint.
"Emma, call 911," Will ordered.
The Glee club gathered round. Will growing extremely concerned when he realised Rachel wasn't breathing.
"Is she okay?" Finn asked shivering.
Will didn't reply. He was trying to remember his first aid training. Taking drastic action, he tilted her head back, pinched her nose; he opened Rachel's mouth, took a breath and breathed in to her.
They all waited as their teacher tried to save her. Emma was now beside the students.
Will continued with mouth to mouth. For a few minutes nothing happened, but then Rachel convulsed. She spat out gallons of water. Will rolled her on her side, making it easier for her.
Rachel was spluttering, coughing and gasping. Will looked around at the sound of sirens. He saw two paramedics running towards him.
"Over here!" Will shouted.
"What happened?" The paramedic man asked.
"The ice broke and she nearly drown. She stopped breathing, but she's breathing now," Will announced.
"Okay, let's get her in the ambulance," The paramedic woman said.
They got Rachel on a stretcher and put her in the ambulance. The ambulance sped off to Lima's only hospital.
"Everyone back on the bus," Will ordered.
The Glee Club piled on the bus and followed the speeding ambulance.
"Will," Emma said.
"Yes," He smiled.
"You're a hero," She whispered.
She kissed him and he pulled her close.
At the hospital Will was the first to see her.
"Rachel?" He asked entering.
"Mr Schue, thanks for saving my life," Rachel smiled.
She still looked pale and weak as she lay in the hospital.
"It's okay, you should thank Finn as well," Will smiled.
"I'll see you later," Will said before leaving.
Finn got up and went to see Rachel as his teacher left.
Will sat with Emma.
"I'm glad she's okay," Will told her.
"Me too, just next time the Glee club goes on a field trip, you should take them somewhere else," Emma advised.
Will nodded "I will,".
Emma kissed Will and rested her head on his shoulder.
