Part Ten

A/N This is the final chapter of this fic. I am working on other fics. I hope you like it. Thanks for sticking with me. I have a one shot I will be posting soon. Then I am working on a BaM (from All My Children) Faberry crossover.

"I'm nervous, Rach," Quinn said sitting in the car in the school parking lot.

"It is okay. We don't have to do this."

"Yes we do. I need to. I don't want to hide." She smiled at Rachel. "I just need you to give me a kiss to give me courage."

"That, I can definitely do." Rachel leaned over and captured Quinn's lips in a sweet kiss. "Are you ready?"

"As ready as I will ever be."

"Okay. Just remember we can do this."

Quinn smiled. "Yea, we can."

The two girls got out of the car. Quinn grabbed Rachel's hand and interlocked their fingers. She took a deep breath. She could do this. Santana looked at Quinn & Rachel. She smirked. "Good job, midget. Landing the head cheerleader is no small feat."

Rachel replied. "Well Quinn is certainly a wonderful cheerleader, what I like about her runs much deeper than…"

She was cut off. "It was a compliment, dwarf. Take it."

"Oh well thank you Santana. You look lovely today."

Santana shook her head and went to walk off as Brittany came running up. "Rach, you look awesome today."

"Thanks Brittany. So do you, as always."

A football player that Rachel had never really noticed before looked at Quinn & Rachel. With a sneer he muttered, "Dykes."

"What the fuck did you call them!" Santana yelled as Brittany wrapped her arms around Santana's waist trying to hold her back. "I can destroy you! Let me go B."

Quinn & Rachel each tried to help Brittany hold Santana back, but as strong as Brittany was, Santana had more strength when she was angry. If it wasn't for Mercedes and Sam walking up just then and grabbing on to Santana, she may have broke lose.

"You BETTER run! Fores I kick your ass!" Santana yelled at the retreating football player.

They all finally let go of Santana as soon as the football player was out of sight. "Thanks, San," Quinn said. "I appreciate it, but you don't need to get yourself expelled for me."

Santana shook her head. She wasn't going to let tears spill in front of people. She hugged Quinn and whispered in her ear. "I thought I lost you once. I won't lose you again."

Quinn looked at Rachel. "You okay?"

Rachel smiled. "Of course I am sweetie. Are you?"

Quinn pulled Rachel into a hug. "I will be," she whispered.

"Berry, we need to talk," Santana stated.

Rachel nodded. "Okay. We can talk Santana. Where would you…"

"This way." She pulled Rachel away from the others while Mercedes & Sam inquired what happened. "Did you push her to do this?" Santana asked softly.

"No, I would never. In fact, I repeatedly asked if she was sure. She said she needed to do this. That it is an important…"

"Shut up, Berry. I believe you. Just keep a close eye on her."

Rachel looked over at Quinn with a soft smile. She turned to Santana. "You don't need to worry about that." She walked back over to Quinn and took her hand.

"What was that about?" she asked looking between the two of them.

"Just wanted to get something straight with Berry," Santana said.

"But what…"

"Honey, don't worry about it. Are you ready to face the rest of the school?"

Quinn grinned when Rachel called her honey. "Yes. Definitely."

Quinn knew she could make it through the day. The football player may have gave her pause but she had good friends to support her. Her mother supported her. Her girlfriend. How she loved how Rachel looked out for her. She wasn't afraid because she had Rachel. Most of the day went without a hitch. Quinn & Rachel almost got slushied but Puck stopped the guys just in time. "What the fuck do you think you are doing?"

The guys might not have cowered if they hadn't seen Santana coming. Puck wasn't nearly as scary as Santana. "You best take off fores I RUIN you!" She yelled.

Quinn just laughed and pulled Rachel with her. She suddenly stopped and turned around. "I am still the Head Bitch in Charge here so don't even try to fuck with me or my girlfriend!" She smirked. "I can end you."
