Second Chance

Disclaimer: I don't own Glee. It belongs to jerk face Ryan Murphy. If I owned Glee, then Finn, Rachel and Kurt would not be leaving after this season.

Finn and Rachel have started dating again after "New York". Will their second chance at love bring them closer together or further apart?

Chapter 1-Senior Portrait

"Just a little to the left, Miss Berry" the photographer signaled to Rachel. Today, she was getting her pictures done for her final year at William McKinley.

"That's it. Can you smile big for me?"


"Mom, is my football jersey ready?" Finn Hudson asked his mother.

"Here you are, all nice and clean for your senior portrait this afternoon" Carole Hummel replied as she handed her son his jersey.

"Thanks, Mom" and Finn raced out the door to meet his photographer for his photo.


"I think they turned out really good. My eyes really stand out in this one." Rachel Berry pointed at the photos that were spread out all across her dining room table.

"You look beautiful in every single one" Finn told her. "I love you." And he leaned in for a kiss from his girlfriend.

"I love you too" and she handed Finn his favorite picture, one of her standing under the stars holding a microphone.

"Rachel Barbra Berry, my shining star" he wrote on the back of the photograph.

"This one is for you" and Finn handed Rachel his senior portrait. He was standing under the bleachers in his football uniform down on one knee holding a football.


Finn's alarm clock buzzed 7am. It was way too early to be up, but today was the first day of his final year of high school.

He grabbed his jacket and backpack before grabbing a pop tart and heading out the door.

When he arrived at school, he noticed that Rachel wasn't near her locker. He tried calling her phone, but she didn't answer. This wasn't like Rachel to not answer the phone. She was so excited to be a senior this year, so he knew that she couldn't have overslept. Maybe his brother, Kurt would know where she was.

"Hey, bro, do you happen to know where Rachel is? She isn't by her locker and she didn't answer the phone this morning. I'm worried about her"

"Finn, I don't know where Rachel is, but I'm sure she's fine. Just go to class." And with that, Kurt left Finn standing in the hallway still curious as to where Rachel was.


"Are you sure you're ready for this?" Finn asked Rachel for the thousandth time.

"Yes, I'm sure" Rachel replied before taking off her blouse.

"I just don't want to hurt you."

"Finn, I'll be fine. Now take off your shirt."

End of Flashback

"Finn? Finn?" Kurt nudged his brother. "Are you coming or not?"

"Yeah. I'll be right there."


The clock flickered 3:30 and school was out. Rachel hadn't been at school all day and this was something she never did. Finn was really worried about her and decided to go visit her.

He arrived at her door and she answered it.

"Finn, what are you doing here?" Rachel asked him.

"I was just wondering why you weren't at school today?"

"I wasn't feeling well, so I stayed home. I know that it very un-Rachel Berry-like, but I felt so sick. What's that?" she asked, pointing at a folder.

"Oh, this is just some of the homework that I got for you. So tell me, why haven't you felt well?"

Rachel signaled for Finn to sit on the bed. He walked closer to the bed and sat down.

"Do you remember a few weeks ago when I told you I was ready to have sexual intercourse with you?"

Finn shook his head "yes."

"I'm late, Finn"

"Late for what?" Finn asked confused

"No, I mean I'm late" Rachel said again.

Finn just sat there sitting on the bed trying to soak in the news that he had just heard.

AU: Cliffhanger! I will post another chapter tomorrow as it is summer vacation and there is nothing else to do. Reviews are greatly appreciated. Much love, Stephanie
