Yay! It's finally up! I can't wait to work on this all summer! I hope you all enjoy this chapter!



Audrey groaned at her vibrating phone that was sitting on her side table. She turned over to grab it, it read Hayley calling.

Audrey answered in a sleepy voice, "Hello?"

"Hey! I need help choosing an outfit!" said Hayley in an enthusiastic tone.

Audrey rubbed her eyes and pulled out her hair tie that held up her messy bun as she let her wavy brown hair down. "Sure, what are the choices?"

"Ok so outfit one is skinny jeans, a loose pink shirt, and silver ballet flats. Outfit two is just my floral dress, you know the one I got for my birthday last year?"

"Go with the dress you look great in that plus Scott would love you in it too," said Audrey as she stood up from her bed.

"Thanks, anything from Luke? It's weird how he hasn't texted you all last month," said Hayley.

"Yeah he actually called me last night and he said he's giving me a ride to school today."

"Awesome, I can't believe it Audrey we're finally seniors! Seniors! It feels like yesterday when I got that slushy in the face!"

Audrey laughed, "Yeah then I took the other slushy and threw it in the football player's face!"

The two of them continued to laugh, "Alright I better get going," said Audrey.

"Yeah me too," said Hayley.


"Bye!" Hayley said as Audrey hung up. She walked over to her desk and looked at the pictures on it. One with her and her friends at her sweet sixteen, another with her and Lily at Lily's third birthday party. Another with her and her Mom and Dad, one from when she and Hayley went to the Statue of Liberty back when they were fourteen. There was also one with her and Luke, Audrey's boyfriend. Audrey smiled at the photos, she had a pretty great life.

Audrey quickly hopped in the shower, brushed her teeth, and put on her makeup. The night before she picked out her outfit, white denim skirt, brown belt, and a basic purple top. She put her hair in a relaxed side ponytail and looked in her mirror. She had grown up so much since she had moved from New York. This was her senior year and she wanted to make the most of it.


"Lily! Come over and eat breakfast!" said Rachel calling for Lily who was watching TV in the living room. Lily came running over in her pink night gown as her little pigtails flopped up and down with her stuffed animal bunny in hand.

"Hi Mommy!" Lily said as she hugged her Mothers leg.

"Hi baby! What do you want for breakfast? I made French Toast," said Rachel as she got down to Lily's level.

Lily nodded her head in response as Finn came into the kitchen. "Hey babe," Finn said as he grabbed Rachel by the waist and placed a kiss on her neck.

Rachel smiled, "Morning."

Finn then let go and picked up Lily, "Morning Lily Pad!"

Lily giggled, "Morning Daddy!" Finn placed a kiss on her cheek and put her in her booster seat to eat breakfast and soon Audrey came down.

"Sissy!" said Lily getting Audrey's attention.

"Hey Lil! Morning!" she said as she placed a kiss on Lily's head. Audrey went to the stove to get herself some French toast.

"First day as a senior!" said Finn.

"I can't believe our baby is a senior in high school! Remember when she wouldn't let us go when we dropped her off on her first day of Kindergarten?" said Rachel as she got Lily her breakfast.

Audrey smiled, "Hey! That teacher scared me! Plus I didn't want to leave you guys."Rachel, Finn, and Audrey laughed as she heard Luke honk the car horn twice to let her know he was ready.

"Shoot!" said Audrey as she ate a little faster.

"That's Luke! Thanks for breakfast! Love ya!" said Audrey as she gave both her Mom and her Dad a kiss and hug goodbye. She grabbed her backpack and quickly ran out the door.

"There she goes," said Finn as him and Rachel watched her get into Luke's car.

Rachel started to cry, "She just grew up so fast."


"Hey babe!" said Luke as Audrey got into his car.

Audrey smiled, "Hey!" He then kissed her on the lips.

"How come you didn't text me all last month?" Audrey asked.

"Well when I was on vacation in the Florida Keys I forgot my phone back at home, I'm sorry babe," said Luke.

Audrey smiled again, "No it's fine."

Soon enough Luke pulled into a parking space at McKinley. Audrey was so happy to be back she really missed school and especially the glee club. Luke and Audrey walked in together hand in hand down the halls of McKinley, then Audrey and Hayley saw each other.

The two screamed, "Hey! You look great!" said Audrey.

"You too! Hey Luke" responded Hayley!

"Hey Hayley, alright I better get to class," said Luke as he gave another kiss to Audrey.

"Ok bye!" said Audrey as Luke left the two girls alone.

"I really can't believe we're seniors!" said Hayley.

"I know! How was California with Beth?"

"It was amazing! California is so warm and just amazing! It was great to get away from Lima for a month," said Hayley.

Audrey laughed, "Where's Scott?"

"He's already in homeroom and we better get there as well," said Hayley as the two made their way down the hall.


"Welcome back everyone!" said Mr. Shue as he came in the choir room. Everyone settled down and headed to their seats. Scott and Hayley sat next to each other and Audrey sat on the other side of her. Luke wasn't into show choir and performing like Audrey was. Which was the only thing Audrey didn't really like about Luke, he was more into sports.

"Alright now I have an important announcement that you all need to hear," said Mr. Shue as he pulled a stool over for him to sit on.

"I have thought about this for a while now and I think it's time for me to retire," said Mr. Shue. Gasps filled the room and everyone started talking.

"But Mr. Shue you can't retire!" said Nicole.

"Why are you retiring Mr. Shue?" asked James.

"Ok you guys calm down! The end of the school year is when I'm retiring and I chose this because I feel like it's my time. I have been doing glee club for a long time now and I need to move on," said Mr. Shue.

Everyone was silent, "Now I'm not going to assign anything this week but I do want you to focus on the main goal this year, Nationals. Now I know we haven't been able to get there but this year we will. I want you all to put in everything you have into getting there this year and I know you all can do it," again said Mr. Shue.

Everyone nodded and Mr. Shue dismissed them. Audrey was upset with the news, Mr. Shue was one of her favorite teachers and she loved him teaching glee club. It was what he was best at.

Audrey made her way to her locker as Luke met up with her, "Audrey I need to talk to you."

"Sure! What is it?" Audrey asked as Luke took her hands into his.

"Remember how we said we would always be honest with each other, no secrets?"

"Yeah I remember! Why?" Audrey asked.

"Well I didn't exactly leave my phone at my house when I went on vacation. I…I met someone while I was in Florida," said Luke.

Audrey was shocked and didn't know what to say, "What? Did you two do anything?"

Luke was silent and didn't know what to say. Audrey shoved his hands away, "Did you have a relationship with her because before you left I told you I wasn't ready to have sex with you?"

Luke again was silent and didn't know what to say, "You ass hole!"

"Audrey baby please wait!"

"Audrey quickly turned around, "Don't call me baby! Don't touch me, don't call me, don't come near me, and don't ever talk to me again!" Audrey shouted as she ran out of the school doors in tears.


"Mommy look at the picture I drew!" said Lily as she held up a picture of a flower to Rachel.

"It's beautiful Lily!" said Rachel as Lily smiled.

Audrey came though the front door in anger and in tears, "Audrey what happened?" Rachel asked.

Audrey looked at her then at Lily and she quickly ran upstairs, "Lily Pad I'll be right back," said Rachel as she headed up stairs to talk to Audrey.

Audrey was sitting on her bed with her head in her hands, "Audrey what happened," again asked Rachel as she sat down next to her daughter and put her hand on her shoulder. Audrey didn't respond.

"Audrey you know you can always talk to me," said Rachel.

"Luke had sex with another girl while he was in Florida. That's why he didn't text me all last month. In July he wanted to do it but I said I wasn't ready and he got pissed," said Audrey.

Rachel was in shock as well but she knew exactly what her daughter was going through. She put her arms around her daughter to comfort her.

"It's his loss. If he couldn't wait for you then he doesn't deserve you sweetheart," said Rachel as Audrey wiped off her tears.

"Thanks Mom," responded Audrey.

"You know what we should do?" Rachel asked.


"How about we invite Quinn, Hayley, and Sydney over for an all girls slumber party?"

Audrey smiled at the idea, "Yeah I guess."


The next night Quinn, Hayley, and Sydney came over for the slumber party. Finn went out to hang with Sam and Sydney and Lily were doing their own thing up in Lily's room. Audrey, Hayley, Rachel, and Quinn were in the living room talking about Audrey's break up.

"Ugh that's just terrible what he did to you!" said Hayley as she took a handful of popcorn from the bowl.

"He didn't even tell you until yesterday?" asked Quinn.

"Yeah," Audrey said sadly. She liked Luke, she really did but there was always something about him that was off.

The radio was on and the song 'Man I Feel Like a Woman' came on. "I love this song!" said Quinn as she went to turn the volume up.

Mom this song is so old!" said Hayley. "

Let's go girls!

Audrey, Hayley, and Rachel laughed at how Quinn said the words along with the song. The four of them started dancing and singing around the living room.

I'm going out tonight-I'm feelin' alright
Gonna let it all hang out
Wanna make some noise-really raise my voice
Yeah, I wanna scream and shout
No inhibitions-make no conditions
Get a little outta line
I ain't gonna act politically correct
I only wanna have a good time

The best thing about being a woman
Is the prerogative to have a little fun

Oh, oh, oh, go totally crazy-forget I'm a lady
Men's shirts-short skirts
Oh, oh, oh, really go wild-yeah, doin' it in style
Oh, oh, oh, get in the action-feel the attraction
Color my hair-do what I dare
Oh, oh, oh, I wanna be free-yeah, to feel the way I feel
Man! I feel like a woman!

The girls need a break-tonight we're gonna take
The chance to get out on the town
We don't need romance-we only wanna dance
We're gonna let our hair hang down

The best thing about being a woman
Is the prerogative to have a little fun

Sydney and Lily heard all of the singing from upstairs and decided to come down to see what was going on. Soon the two girls joined in on the dancing and singing.

Oh, oh, oh, go totally crazy-forget I'm a lady
Men's shirts-short skirts
Oh, oh, oh, really go wild-yeah, doin' it in style
Oh, oh, oh, get in the action-feel the attraction
Color my hair-do what I dare
Oh, oh, oh, I wanna be free-yeah, to feel the way I feel
Man! I feel like a woman!

The best thing about being a woman
Is the prerogative to have a little fun (fun, fun)

Oh, oh, oh, go totally crazy-forget I'm a lady
Men's shirts-short skirts
Oh, oh, oh, really go wild-yeah, doin' it in style
Oh, oh, oh, get in the action-feel the attraction
Color my hair-do what I dare
Oh, oh, oh, I wanna be free-yeah, to feel the way I feel
Man! I feel like a woman!

I get totally crazy
Can you feel it
Come, come, come on baby
I feel like a woman

The four of them collapsed on the couch and laughed at the fun they just had.

Later that night as Hayley was asleep, Audrey was awake in bed. After the whole show in the living room earlier that night she was in a better mood and a lot happier. She didn't need Luke to be happy, being around her friends and family gave her the happiness that she needed.
