"Woohoo! Hot damn! That boy can sing!" April proclaimed as she made her way back out.
"Now, this next performer is adorable. He's awkward and one 'a' he isn't is an asshole...oh, wait that's 2...ah well. But his name does have 2 'M's and that's not including his middle name: it's Mitchell Mason!" April then said before heading back off again.

After this year, Mitchell is glad that everything has come full circle. Even with the whole thing with Finn, Quinn, Michelle and Rachel and then the whole rumors thing with the Muckraker. But finally things felt like they were going back to normal: he was back with Quinn and he felt better that ever.
He was getting the feeling that many couples weren't feeling positive about the benefit. But Mitchell was. With every day passing as the benefit approached, Mitchell could feel the adrenaline levels pumping through his veins increase. After Nationals, Mitchell had never been so happy even though they lost. He got to go to New York and see everything that amazing city had to offer. He knew they deserved to at least get through to the Top 10 but hey, there was always senior year to fight back

Quinn had been quite adamant about Mitchell telling her his song choice but the brunette would just smile and keep it a secret. It was probably not the first song you would expect Mitchell to sing but hey, it was a guilty favorite and he loved the song as it describes him to a tee.

When the scary blonde woman walked off, Mitchell took her place. He wore a white buttoned up shirt with blue jeans and bright white sneakers. He smiled to the audience before speaking into the microphone.
"Hello, people of the audience. I'm Mitchell Marcus Mason and I'll be singing 'Boy Falls From The Sky' from the Broadway musical Spider-man: Turn Off The Dark...did I sound like Rachel for a second?" he asked to which the audience laughed at and nodded to. Mitchell only smiled back before hearing the guitar introduction to which Mitchell countered with as he sang the opening words.

You can change your mind
But you cannot change your heart

When he heard the drums, he snapped the microphone off of the stand and took a step forward to be in front of the microphone stand.

Your heart knows what you're hiding
Your heart knows where you are

I'd be myself if I knew who I'd become
You don't have to fly too high
To get too close to the sun

See the boy fall from the sky

He then began to walk to the right hand side of the stage, making sure every word of the song grabbed his audience and to distract them from his probability of falling flat on his face.

You will always be in front of me
Even as I disappear from view
For I have not a single thing
Without the thought of you

He then began to walk to the other side of the stage, the power of his voice soaring throughout the theatre.

But no, not here, not now, no way
I'm not ready to give up the fight
If I can use a single thread to cross the sky
Then why is the eye of the needle
Still your heart tonight

See how the boy falls from the sky

As the guitar solo ripped through Mitchell's ears, he bopped his head in rhythm, a triumphant smile upon his face. He had never felt so free in his life. He then went back to the stand and clicked the microphone back into place as he sang "Oh!" before looking to Quinn and smiling as it was just him and an acoustic guitar.

The city conducts a symphony
I'll search through the trash for a melody
That might lead us back to dignity
In this junkyard of humanity
To let you go without regret
I will forever hold you always in my heart inside
Over the screams and the siren's wail
The only thing not up for sale

He watched Quinn smile with pride before he looked back out onto the audience. His voice escalating to match the gritty rock notes.

Are lovers like lights on a midnight train
Hearts like thunder with no sign of rain
Lightning splits the sky, kisses your face
Yours is the sacrifice, yours is the grace

He then closed his eyes briefly before reopening them, this time seeing only his girlfriend sat in the very middle seat of the seating area. He kept his eyes focused on her as he drove the song towards it's crescendo.

I hear your voice inside my head
I wil listen to nobody, not to no one else
From the bridge where we both stood and stole the view
I saw the you in me and the me in you
These are the threads that bind
The ones we have to weave
They will hold us true, I believe
I believe
Believe, believe, believe, believe
Believe, believe
Ow!

He then let the outro of the song rip through him before hearing the rapturous applause of the audience. He smiled at the standing ovation before bowing and heading offstage but not before wishing good luck to the next performer as April headed back out.

"Whew. I'm getting tired from all of this walking backwards and forwards. I feel like a pinball. I should get one of them motorized wheelchairs or them things...what they called? Ah, it'll come to me. Anyways, you've seen one half. Now it's time for the other half. She's blonde, she's pretty and she's Miss Quinn Fabray." April said before heading back offstage again.

Quinn had never felt this happy in a long time. Even after all of the drama in junior year, she had finally decided where she was happiest: with Mitchell. She's quite happy they had their little talk in New York after Santana told Mitchell that she was depressed after what happened with Finn at Jean's funeral and it was Mr. Mason to the rescue. Quinn even said to Santana and Brittany "I just want somebody to love me" and apparently they knew what they had to do and they talked to Mitchell and then Mitchell and Quinn talked and they made up just after their Nationals performance. Even though the New Directions ended up losing Nationals, she didn't really care that much anymore now that she had Mitchell back.

As for the benefit, she hadn't been spending as much time with Mitchell as she wanted to because they were both practicing but Mitchell's performance turned out to be amazing and Quinn could only hope to follow in her boyfriend's footsteps. Also, with Shelby's return and bringing Beth back, Quinn had to spend time with her daughter. And surprisingly enough, Mitchell was okay with that and the couple couldn't be better than ever.

Quinn stepped out in a navy blue sundress with a black cardigan over the top and black high heels, smiling out to the applauding audience before she spoke into the microphone.
"Hey, everyone. My name is Quinn Fabray and I'll be singing 'Can't Fight The Moonlight' by LeAnn Rimes." she said before hearing the electric guitar introduction. When it was her cue, she sang softly with a smile on her face.

Under a lovers' sky
Gonna be with you
And noone's gonna be around
If you think that you won't fall
Well just wait until
Til the sun goes down

Underneath the starlight - starlight
There's a magical feeling - so right
It'll steal your heart tonight

Her more soulful, gritty voice came through as she went into the chorus, her smile now turned into her HBIC smirk.

You can try to resist
Try to hide from my kiss
But you know
But you know that you can't fight the moonlight
Deep in the dark
You'll surrender your heart
But you know
But you know that you can't fight the moonlight
No, you can't fight it
It's gonna get to your heart

There's no escape from love
Once a gentle breeze
Weaves it's spell upon your heart
No matter what you think
It won't be too long
Til your in my arms
Underneath the starlight - starlight
We'll be lost in the rhythm - so right
Feel it steal your heart tonight

You can try to resist
Try to hide from my kiss
But you know
But you know that you can't fight the moonlight
Deep in the dark
You'll surrender your heart
But you know
But you know that you can't fight the moonlight
No you can't fight it
No matter what you do
The night is gonna get to you

When Quinn sang this, she pointed to Mitchell who could only smile and shake his head before clapping along to the song.

Don't try then
You're never gonna win

Underneath the starlight - starlight
There's a magical feeling - so right
It will steal your heart tonight

Quinn belted out the key change perfectly, gaining applause from the audience as she smiled before carrying on with the song.

You can try to resist
Try to hide from my kiss
But you know
But you know that you can't fight the moonlight
Deep in the dark
You'll surrender your heart
But you know
But you know that you can't fight the moonlight
No, you can't fight it

You can try to resist
Try to hide from my kiss
But you know
Don't you know that you can't fight the moonlight
Deep in the dark
You'll surrender your heart
But you know
But you know that you can't fight the moonlight
No, you can't fight it
It's gonna get to your heart

As Quinn's voice faded out, it was replaced with loud applause and Quinn smiled, bowed before heading offstage.

Songs used are 'Boy Falls From The Sky' from Spider-man: Turn Off The Dark and 'Can't Fight The Moonlight' by LeAnn Rimes.

So the couple is Quitchell! I do love the couple because it's the awkward boy meets the elegant girl and usually that type of coupling end up in heartbreak but at the end of ZeroBen's story 'A Different Point Of View', they're happily in love and that's something you don't really see in many fanfictions or any kind of story really.

The next chapter includes adults, a duet and a solo :)

Until then, see you!
