NOTE: Set during the first season

As little raindrops collided with the ground beneath them, a black car pulled into Cherrypick Road, one of the more expensive streets in Lima, stopping outside quite a big house, almost like a manor. And as the left car door opened, someone sat on the front seat inside the car spoke up.

"Wait..." it said and the passenger looked back, bright blue eyes lit with curiosity as they locked with brown.

"Can I...walk you to your door?" a velvety smooth voice asked and a pearly smile lit up the car, a head feverishly nodding as blonde locks bounced upon her crown. The one sat in the front then opened their door getting out as the blonde did and they jogged towards the front door, laughing at how ridiculous they would look. Once outside the painted blue wooden door, the two beings looked to each other, eyes meeting once again.

"Has anyone ever told you that you look pretty when rain falls from your hair?" the blonde asked. The brown eyed girl could only look down, trying to hide a giddy smile with her cascading ebony mane. She then looked up, back into pools of blue and she almost forgets herself for a second before managing to utter: "I had a great time tonight, Britt."

Brittany smiled once more before taking a tanned hand into her own. "Me too, San." she whispered and they continued to stare before Santana broke eye contact.

"I'll see you tomorrow at school, okay? Do you remember how to unlock your door seeing as you had a problem with your keys when we left?" Santana asked the girl opposite her, who nodded.

"I should. But if I don't, I can just get Lord Tubbington to do it. He always knows how to unlock stuff: doors, safes, anything." Brittany replied. Santana let out a laugh before realizing her hand was still intertwined with Brittany's. She slowly pulled away before beginning to walk away. Brittany watched her friend walk away before retrieving her keys, unlocking her door and closing it behind her. She went upstairs to her room, knowing her mom should be back from working at the jazz club soon. She went over to her iPod dock and pressed play, grinning at the song that started through her speakers. The ukulele, guitar and drums sending her into flashbacks of events occurring just hours beforehand as she sang along to the words.

TWO HOURS BEFORE...

Giving herself one more once over before Santana got here, Brittany checked her appearance before heading over to her mirror table and checked her makeup before spraying on her Britney Spears perfume. If she was going to do one thing related to Britney Spears, it would be wearing her perfume seeing as it smelled like roses and cotton.

This was her first date with Santana. In fact her first date ever since the only time she was with anyone would either be in her bed or in the janitor's closet or sometimes at a house party but Santana had actually asked her out. On a date. She didn't say it was a date but since they were going to see a movie and have food at BreadstiX, her mom called that a date so it's a date. Also, it would be the first time she would see Santana in normal clothes...unless she's wearing her uniform on the date because that would be awkward. Or would she be wearing pajamas because she's seen Santana in pyjamas too.

A doorbell was heard and a she let out a breath she didn't even know she was holding in. She could hear Santana talking to her mom as she headed out her bedroom door and started making her way down the staircase. She carefully watched for a short white, red and black Cheerios uniform but she never saw one. Instead she saw navy skinny jeans which shaped the Latinas gorgeous legs, a t-shirt with weird names and a hat which didn't stop her black hair from falling past her shoulders. She smiled as Santana continued talking to her mom although Brittany could tell that Santana was trying hard to keep up. She understood, her mom does tend to ramble.

Brittany just stopped halfway down the stairs and stood up straight. "Hey." she said to Santana, who stopped and looked to Brittany. Brittany knew that Santana was staring and Brittany couldn't blame her, she knew she looked hot but she just smiled and headed down the rest of the stairs. "You ready to go?" the blonde asked which seems to put her out of her trance and she just nodded.

"Y-Y-Yeah. Yeah, I'm ready." Santana stuttered, Brittany giggling before striding past and opening the door. Santana looked to Brittany's shoes. "Are you sure you'll be alright in those heels? It has just been raining, you know." Santana commented. Brittany turned to face Santana and gave her appearance a once over as her blue eyes scanned Santana's clothes. "Is that why you chose to wear a t-shirt?" the paler girl asked and Santana smiled before Brittany looked to her mom.

"I'll be back before 12." she said before both of the girls headed out, closing the door behind them.

There's somethin' 'bout the way

The street looks when it's just rained

There's a glow off the pavement

you walk me to the car

Stopping at the 2007 Ford Mustang, Brittany looked impressed.

"I didn't know you had a car." she said. Santana let out a laugh.

"It's not. I told my older brother Julio that if I didn't let him borrow it, I'd tell him about how he was caught smoking pot in college." the Latina replied, making Brittany laugh.

"I didn't know smoking clay could get you in trouble." Brittany commented. Santana laughed before opening the passenger car door and Brittany smiled about to go in before looking to Santana.

And you know I wanna ask you to dance right there

In the middle of the parking lot

Yeah

"Maybe next time, Britt." Santana said, knowing what she was about to ask. Brittany shrugged, content with the answer before getting into the car.

Oh yeah

We're drivin' down the road

I wonder if you know

I'm tryin' so hard not to get caught up now

"What movie are we going to see?" Brittany asked, before looking to Santana.

"Apparently, there's this one showing of this movie at the American Mall Stadium called 'Imagine Me & You'. And it was the closest to a RomCom as you can get and I know how much you like them since that's all you ever bring to everyone of our sleepovers. Except Disney movies but they weren't showing any." Santana said and Brittany grinned, her heart fluttering at how much Santana really knew her. She was excited about this movie even though she had never heard of it but going with Santana made it all the more fun.

But you're just so cool

Run your hands through your hair

Absent mindedly makin' me want you

Walking up to the ticket booth, Santana stood at the kiosk and looked to the young man behind the counter.

"Two tickets for 'Imagine Me & You'." Santana said.

"Aren't you going to say please?" Brittany asked. Santana looked to Brittany with a raised eyebrow but Brittany pouted her lips and created her puppy dog face that Santana just could not resist.

"Alright fine. Just because that face is so damn adorable." she said before turning back to the ticket seller.

"Two tickets to 'Imagine Me & You'...please." Santana said, putting dragged out emphasis on the word 'please', which Brittany giggled at. The man smiled and printed off their tickets.

"Alright. That's $4.89." the young man said. It was both of the girl's turn to raise an eyebrow.

"That's the price for one ticket." Santana pointed out. The young man looked to Santana, then to Brittany then back to Santana.

"You didn't know? It's a two for one offer for couples only for today." the kiosk man explained. Brittany's eyes widened.

"Oh, we're-"

"Grateful that you accept two girls being a couple in public. Especially in this cow town." Santana jumped in. Brittany looked to Santana. The young man nodded.

"Love is love and race, gender, disability or anything shouldn't be used as barriers." the man said and Santana smiled.

"Thank you so much." she said, handing the man a five dollar bill. Once receiving the change and the tickets, Santana walked into the screen room with Brittany following. There weren't that many people inside the theater. There were 4 couples and them so it must not be a weel-known movie, Brittany thought.

"What was that about?" Brittany asked as they walked up the stairs to find the row where their seats were. Santana only scoffed.

"Please, I'll find anyway to save money on anything. The Lopez method is to get something cheaper or completely free." Santana said as they walked along the row.

"Oh, that reminds me. Mama brought her own popcorn because I ain'ts paying those high prices for buttered popcorn that ain't even that well buttered." Santana said as they both sat down.

"I've always wondered how they spread the popcorn on the butter and not get it sticky." Brittany thought aloud. Santana could only smile before running a hand through her thick black mane. Brittany couldn't help but look to her side and just witness how beautiful Santana really was. It was like her body was sculpted by one of those angels who live in France and play with stone and clay but then make it human. She was then brought out of her trance when the movie began.

Halfway through the film, Brittany reached for the popcorn while keeping her eyes glued to the movie screen but instead of feeling weird, bumpy popcorn pieces, she felt something warm and smooth. She looked to see her hand rubbing against Santana's and was about to pull it away when Santana gripped it gently, moving it so their fingers interlocked. Brittany grinned, her eyes flicking to Santana who looked unsure but Brittany leaned in and pressed a soft peck to Santana's cheek, letting her know that what she was doing was perfect. Santana grinned before both girls looked back to the screen, but Brittany found it hard to concentrate with Santana's thumb gently running over her own hand.

And I don't know how it gets better than this

You take my hand and drag me head first

Fearless

And I don't know why but with you I'd dance in a storm in my best dress

Fearless

Walking out of the theater, the girls were laughing about moments in the theater.

"I have to say, that dance mat scene was awesome. They're nearly as good as me." Brittany said and Santana continued to laugh.

"Seriously though, don't tell anyone I said this but I'm a sucker for happy endings. I'm glad they got together." Santana said. Brittany smiled as they walked towards the doors before seeing rain pouring down once again. Santana just looked to Brittany and put her hand out.

"Are you ready?" the Latina asked. Brittany could only smile and take Santana's hand before they both ran towards the car, Santana pulling Brittany as they screamed and giggled as the rain hit them.

So baby drive slow

'til we run out of road in this one horse town

I wanna stay right here in this passenger's seat

You put your eyes on me

In this moment now capture it, remember it

"Oh my god. This rain is just horrible." Santana let out between laughs as they made it back to the car. Once inside, they were both laughing at each other and at themselves before Brittany noticed something.

"Are you sure you want to go to BreadstiX with your t-shirt going all seethroughy?" Brittany asked and Santana looked down, seeing that her t-shirt was wet but not exactly transparent. Brittany could only laugh once again before Santana playfully slapped Brittany's shoulder.

"Shut up! Were you just wishing that it was seethrough so you could see my bra?" Santana asked.

"Well..." Brittany admitted innocently yet truthfully. Santana's jaw dropped before laughing.

"Come on, we'd better get to BreadstiX before we miss our reservation." Santana then said once the girls had calmed down and she started the car before driving away.

Cause I don't know how it gets better than this

You take my hand and drag me head first

Fearless

And I don't know why but with you I'd dance in a storm in my best dress

Fearless

Sat down at BreadstiX, both girls were eating their food when Brittany decided to speak.

"San?" the blonde asked the dark haired girl who looked up from her Angel Hair pasta.

"Yeah, Britt?" she asked, brown eyes showing that Brittany now has her full potential.

"You know you said when you asked me out that it wasn't a date?" Brittany asked. Santana let out a nervous laugh.

"Britt, you know I didn't 'ask you out' because it's not a date. People only ask others out on dates." Santana said.

"I know and I thought that but then I told my mom and she said that it definitely was a date." Brittany said. Santana's eyes darkened with worry and...anger?

"You told your mom? Brittany, how could you do that? I told you not to tell anyone." Santana whispered.

"Santana, she's my mom. We tell each other everything. I'm not going to keep this a secret from her." Brittany replied.

"Why not? I've done a good job so far!" Santana said.

"Why are you being like this? I've enjoyed today and...I like you, Santana. And I want the world to know how awesome you and I are together, as friends or...something more" Brittany said and Santana's eyes widened, becoming misty.

"I like you too, Britt. I really do, it's just...I'm not brave enough right now." Santana replied and Brittany sighed, accepting her answer.

"Maybe I can show our awesomeness off another time?" Brittany asked and Santana showed a wobbly smile, nodding.

"Yeah, just...not right now. Okay?" the Puerto Rican woman asked and Brittany nodded.

After finishing their meal, the girls just gazed at each other before leaving and paying the bill at Brittany's request although Santana wanted otherwise, but she just couldn't resist the puppy dog face.

0000000000

Brittany was brough out of her flashback by a knock at the door. She looked at her clock, her mom wasn't due back for another half an hour so she headed downstairs and opened the door to see a trembling, soaking Santana.

Well you stood there with me in the doorway

My hands shake

I'm not usually this way but

"I've been stood in your driveway for 5 minutes deciding on whether I should properly finish the date or not." she shakily said, arms wrapped around herself. Brittany was shaking too, from the cold and from Santana's words. The dancer's eyes widened, begging Santana to go on.

You pull me in and I'm a little more brave

"And I...I just..." Santana tried before stepping forward and brought her lips to Brittany's.

It's the first kiss,

It's flawless,

Really something,

It's fearless

People say that when people who love each other kiss, fireworks explode in their heads. Well, they're wrong. It's better. It's like fireworks that are painted in gasoline and set on fire exploding. It's powerful, it's exciting but at the same time, it's relieving to know that you have found someone who truly feels the same way about you.

Oh yeah

Cause' I don't know how it gets better than this

You take my hand and drag me head first

Fearless

And I don't know why but with you I'd dance in a storm in my best dress

Fearless

Brittany at first held onto Santana's waist while they're lips continuously connected before Brittany took Santana's arms and gently wrapped around Brittany's neck with their lips still pressed against each other's. Santana's hold strengthened, pulling them as close as humanly possible before they finally broke it.

"Wow." Brittany whispered. Santana nodded.

"Yeah, me too." the tanned girl replied before both girls smiled to each other and Santana opened her mouth to speak.

"Maybe I feel more brave when I'm with you." Santana whispered. Brittany giggled before taking Santana's hand.

"Feel brave enough to go rain dancing?" she asked and Santana giggled before both girls jumped out into the night and just laughed about in the rain: splashing about, spinning each other around and doing silly dance moves while enjoying each other's company.

Cuz I don't know how it gets better than this

You take my hand and drag me head first

Fearless

And I don't know why but with you I'd dance in a storm in my best dress

Fearless

They held each other close in the rain under a single streetlamp's glow before Santana leaned in once again, hands around Brittany's waist as she tilted her face upwards to connect her lips with Brittany's. Brittany returned the kiss, their tongues delicately dancing with each others before Santana broke it and rested her forehead against the dancer's.

"Happy Valentine's Day, Brittany Susan Pierce." she said. Brittany smiled before kissing Santana's forehead and leaning down to rub her nose with Santana's.

"Happy Valentine's Day, Santana Maribel Lopez." the blonde replied before kissing her best friend again.

Oh-oh

Oh yeah
