This is my first Glee Fanfic. I hope you enjoy it please review. If you have any suggestions for next songs let me know. :)

I don't remember when I noticed the sad Rachel Berry. Maybe it was after I saw her come into school with a black eye. Followed by Jesse who looked pissed off. I remember being enraged she didn't deserve that. Not Rachel, not anyone.

When your tears are spent on your last pretense
And your tired eyes refuse to close and sleep in your defense.
When it's in your spine like you've walked for miles
And the only thing you want is just to be still for a while

Maybe it was the times I saw her cry. The first time I found her sitting on a bench outside school. Tears cascading down her cheeks and her small hands trying to cover her face but failing. I didn't know how to react to Rachel Berry breaking down. She was the girl made of stone walls. I guess Jesse had been trying to tear them down. She looked so broken. So hurt. I stood there not able to do much more than watch her continue to come undone.

If your heart wears thin I will hold you up
And I will hide you when it gets too much
I'll be right beside you
I am right be right beside you

The next time I saw Rachel Berry cry was right after I slushied her. I expected her to get pissed off. To slap me or yell at me. Yet before I knew what was happening she was crying and looking right into my eyes. Windows right into her soul. Hurt. Agony. Fear. Finally the one that chilled me the most. Acceptance. Before I could stop her she turned and went into the Girls bathroom and without a thought or care. I followed her.

When you're overwhelmed and you've lost your breath
When the space between the things you know is blurry nonetheless.
When you try to speak but you make no sound
And the words you want are out of reach but they've never been so loud

Her sobs weren't quiet. They were loud and full of emotion. She was trying to get the blue slushy from her beautiful long hair. I took the cloth from her hand and ran it under water again before putting it to her cheek. Doing my best to wipe away the tear marks. 'I'm sorry' I said. As I continued to help her remove the cold and staining drink from her cloths and hair. She only nodded, her eyes numb from all emotion. For a second though I thought I saw a Spark of hope. I will save Rachel Berry.

If your heart wears thin I will hold you up
And I will hide you when it gets too much
I'll be right beside you
I am right be right beside you

Today was the worst of it. We had been going out a few month now, Jesse finally gone. I loved her. More than Quinn and my casual whatever with Santana. More than anyone. Yet she still needed fixing. Jesse came back. I caught him pinning her to a locker. I got there to late only in time for the last punch. Rachel was black and blue a long cut on her cheek. My Star was hurt. I threw him off her in rage not being able to contain myself. I knocked him out cold and then in the next breath she was in my arms. Sobbing into my shoulder.

I will stay.
Nobody will break you,
Yeah.

Her face needed Stitches. Of course she called for the plastic surgeon. I held her hand while she winced. They were taking her for head scans next. They didn't think anything was wrong but me being as over protective as I am pushed for them. She hated hospitals and doctors. Her dads were away and so that meant it was my job. My job to fix her again. Not that I would have it any other way

Trust in me, trust in me.
Don't pull away
Trust in me, trust in me.
I'm just trying to keep this together, because I could do worse and you could do better

Tears are spent on your last pretense
And your tired eyes refuse to close and sleep in your defense.

If your heart wears thin I will hold you up
And I will hide you when it gets too much
I'll be right beside you
Nobody will break you

I watched as she tried to sleep. Making sure she had no nightmares from today's events. Her form small compared to my king sized bed. She was incredible. So strong. She didn't ever really lose herself. In all the pain and tears she still knew who she was and where she was going. I would make sure she always did.
If your heart wears thin I will hold you up
And I will hide you when it gets too much
I'll be right beside you
Nobody will break you.
