Rachel, Mercedes and Kurt sat in the choir room, waiting for Glee club to start. They, or rather Mercedes and Kurt, were loudly discussing which song fitted the Rachel/Finn/Quinn triangle the best. One of the songs were The boy is mine, despite the fact that Mercedes and Santana had been singing it a few months before, when they were fighting over Puck. The other song was Jar of Hearts by Christina Perri.

Rachel sat there in silence, only huffing every now and then. After a while, she didn't even keep track on what they agreed to. No, Rachel's thought were somewhere else, with someone else. Ever since the scene in the toilets, she hadn't really been able to stop thinking about Quinn. It was weird, she thought, because even though she was pretty much obsessed with Finn back in the days, she didn't think about him the way she thought about Quinn now. Back then, it was more about becoming something, and Finn was her way to get that. She was tired of being down in the dirt all the time, and Finn, well, he was the quarterback, so he would assure her status. But with Quinn, it was about being herself with someone. To trust someone so much that she could let all of her guards down for this one human being. It was about being something to someone, to her, to Quinn.

So now, that beautiful but vulnerable, blond goddess was all that was on Rachel's mind.

"Don't you agree, Rach?" She was abruptly thrown out of her day dreaming and back into real life. "Huh?" She didn't get any response, because Will Shuester walked into class.

"Hey, guys." He said, giving his famous and kind smile. He walked over to the whiteboard and wrote with big red letters; Heartbreak.

"Okay. So I guess you can guess what your assignments for this week will be?

"Oh, oh I know, I know! Its heartbreak, isn't it? I know it is." Brittany interjected. The whole club but Santana stared at her in disbelief. But that was Brittany though, not the sharpest tool in the shed. Santana loved that about her. Not that she wasn't as bright as everyone else; she didn't even notice that fact. No, she loved the childlikeness of Brittany, her pureness and innocence. Santana took Brittany's hand and smiled at her. "That's right baby, you're right."

Britt's face lit up. Oh how Santana loved that smile of hers. It was the highlight of her day, to see that smile. She leant in and placed a soft kiss on Britt's cheek. This made the blond girls face light up even more. "I love you" she whispered into her ear, letting her breath settle on the Latina's skin. "I love you to, sweetie", the tall dark temptress answered with a huge genuine smile on her face.

Rachel witnessed the entire thing and felt her heart soar in awe. She wanted that, what they had. As of right now, that was all she needed, and she knew exactly who she needed it with.

Will Shuester just smiled at Brittany and Santana before continuing. "Yes, Brittany is correct. This week's assignment will be to find a song about heartbreak and perform it here in Glee club. I think this should be an easy one, considering everyone, correct me if I'm wrong, have experienced heartbreak, in some kind of form." All the student's faces dropped a little bit. Most of them thinking back to a hurtful and heartbreaking episode of their life. "So if anyone wants' to give it a go right now, you are very welcome to do that." No one signed up, but some of them turned their heads towards Rachel. The teacher continued; "okay, well then here is an example." He walked over to the pianist and whispered something in his ear, before taking place on a chair in the middle of the room.

The music started playing.

A hundred days have made me older
Since the last time that I saw your pretty face
A thousand lies have made me colder
And I don't think I can look at this the same
But all the miles that separate
Disappear now when I'm dreaming of your face

His voice was soft and carrying. Some of the students joined him on her chorus, but Rachel's thoughts and eyes stayed on Quinn. My god, Rachel thought, all soaked up in the taller girl sitting a few chairs away from her. She really was one of the most beautiful girls she had seen her entire life. Perhaps the most beautiful girl in the world, she though. Her heart was yet again soaring, but broke again, when she heard the lyrics of the song, realizing she was without her.

I'm here without you baby
But you're still on my lonely mind
I think about you baby
And I dream about you all the time

I'm here without you baby
But you're still with me in my dreams
And tonight it's only you and me, yeah

When the song ended, the students stood up and applauded him.

"Okay, so I think you've got a pretty good idea of the assignment, so I guess I see you on Thursday. Have a good day everybody."

A thousand lies have made me colder
And I don't think I can look at this the same
But all the miles that separate
Disappear now when I'm dreaming of your face

Quinn sat all the way in the back of the choir room, listening to her teacher sing one of her favorite songs. And this time too, did the lyrics pull on her strings. Word by word they slowly broke her apart.

But you're still on my lonely mind
I think about you baby
And I dream about you all the time

A tear rolled down previously the HIBC, Quinn Fabray's cheek. This song was the song she used to sing in her bed, late at night, to the picture of her Beth. Just thinking about it tore her into a million pieces, and another tear rolled down from her now damp and red eyes. The air got tighter, and she had a hard time breathing. She could feel the panic inside her rising, and she started almost started hyperventilating.

"Have a good day everybody." Quinn didn't move. As everyone else stormed out, she stayed behind, and just when she thought she was alone, she broke down. She fell to the ground, crying her heart out, thinking no one would know. But she was wrong. Suddenly she felt her body swept up from the floor and into someone's arms. They were short, but comfortably familiar, so she didn't even care about stopping herself. She just leant into the embrace, letting it all out.

She didn't know how long the two sat there, but she found herself waking up in the choir room, not really knowing what she did there, until she felt someone holding her like never before. She looked around, only to find that the arms belonged to one Rachel Berry, whom had also fallen asleep. Quinn panicked again for a short second. What was she doing in Rachel Berry's arms, and why was Rachel even in there? Had she seen Q's breakdown? A numerous of thoughts went through her head at that moment. What freaked Quinn out the most was why the hell she enjoyed being in the short, brunettes arms so much. Much more than she should. And this was the second time Rachel had swept in, like her own personal knight in shining armor, protecting her, comforting her, keeping her safe.

"Quinn? Are you okay?" A voice said. She flipped her head to the side, only to be met by two beautiful chocolate brown anchors, belonging to Rachel Berry. There was an awkward silence as they sat there staring into each others' eyes, completely and literally wrapped up in each other. Her heart began beating faster. It was like beat really fast right now. So was Rachel's, but Quinn didn't know that. If her own heart hadn't been beating like that, she might've been able to feel it, but that wasn't the case right now.

Quinn was the first one to break the stare. "Um, yeah, so we should probably get going now." The other girl nodded in agreement, as she let go of the blond goddess.

They both walked out of the choir room, out through the main entrance and out to the parking lot, before Quinn eventually stopped. "Hey, um, thank you. Again" She laughed a short and embarrassed laugh. Rachel took Q's hand and anchored her eyes in Quinn's. "Anytime."

Her heart took a leap. "Really?" The ex-cheerios stared at the diva in slight disbelief, but was met with a reassuring smile. "Yes, anytime you like." She dug through her purse, pulled out a pen and wrote down some numbers on Quinn's hand.

"Here; it's my cell phone number and my home number. If you ever need anything, call me. Okay?"

Quinn hesitated for a bit. "Why do you always save me?" She uttered abruptly, leaving Rachel with a confused and surprised look on her face. She didn't quite know what to say, so she fell silent. That was actually a good question. How come she was always the one to pick up the pieces when Quinn broke down? Of course it had a lot to do with timing, and her being around when Quinn did fall.

"I guess.." Rachel hesitated. "I guess I just happen to be around when you need someone. And I know what it feels like, needing someone, but no one really comes. I don't want that for you. I don't want that for anyone." Yeah, that sounded good, Rachel thought. Not filled with emotions, so she can't tell how I feel.

"Oh." Quinn was a bit disappointed. She had a small hope that it would be about more than that. That it had something to do with her and not just about being alone. Rachel noticed the expression on the other girls face, but didn't quite know what it meant, so she shrugged it off, just as quickly as the thought popped up in her head.

"Thank you." Quinn said, thinking how that had become a habit of hers to say. They exchanged a hug that should've lasted longer than it did, a smile and went their separate ways.
