Just a quick Puck/Blaine drabble

Song: Leave out all the rest- Linkin Park


Puck kept his eyes low as the spotlight illuminated him. He stood alone in the center of the stage, the other members of New Directions watching him anxiously from the wings. He kept his head down during the instrumental opening, lifting it slowly as he began to sing:

"I dreamed I was missing, you were so scared, but no-one would listen, 'cause no one else cared."

His eyes quickly skimmed the crowd anxiously, searching for one person in particular.

"After my dreaming, I woke with this fear; what am I leaving when I'm done here?"

He quickly spotted the person he was searching for. Lost in amongst a sea of navy blazers.

His eyes locked with the Warbler, who sat with a curious look on his face, staring up at Puck.

"So if you're asking me I want you to know..."

The stage lights lifted to illuminate the entire stage as the other members of New Directions slowly filed in behind him, softly humming the accompaniment as they created two rows across the back of the stage.

"When my time comes, forget the wrong that I've done. Help me leave behind some, reasons to be missed. Don't resent me and when you're feeling empty. Keep me in your memory. Leave out all the rest. Leave out all the rest."

Puck slowly stepped forwards, standing right at the front of the stage. Singing directly at his curly-haired opponent, an almost apologetic look on his face.

"Don't be afraid. Of taking my beating. I've shed but I'm me. 'm strong on the surface, not all the way through. I've never been perfect..."

He smirked and winked towards the older boy.

"but neither have you."

"So if you're asking me I want you to know..."

The entire Glee club joined in with the chorus, the complex harmonies complimenting Pucks voice perfectly without overpowering him:

"When my time comes, forget the wrong that I've done. Help me leave behind some, reasons to be missed. Don't resent me and when you're feeling empty. Keep me in your memory. Leave out all the rest. Leave out all the rest."

Puck slowly moved back to the center of the stage as his team mates moved around him, creating a wide semi circle around the boy.

"Forgetting, all the hurt the hurt inside you've learned to hide so well. Pretending, someone else can come and save me from myself. I cant be who you are..."

Puck belted out his lyrics for the final chorus, meaning every word of it as he looked into his lovers eyes.

"When my time comes, forget the wrong that I've done. Help me leave behind some, reasons to be missed. Don't resent me and when you're feeling empty. Keep me in your memory. Leave out all the rest. Leave out all the rest."

His voice faltered for the last verse leaving him sounding more vulnerable than he'd intended. He closed his eyes tightly, his hand curled into small fists at his sides:

"Forgetting, all the hurt the hurt inside you've learned to hide so well. Pretending, someone else can come and save me from myself. I cant be who you are..."

He looked up, watching for Blaine's reaction as he whispered the closing line:

"...I cant be who you are..."
