Rachel shot up from the chair with Finn grabbing her gently by the
arm and saying, "Be calm, Rach." Rachel responded, "How can I, look at that!"
She pointed at Santana; Santana was heading over to the table and her nostrils
were flaring in anger and her mouth was in a snarl. Santana slammed her hands
on the table and hissed, "Where the fuck is Brittany, Berry?" Two bodyguards
were watching the club, keeping an eye for Brittany and Rachel was shivering
in fright stuttering, "I-I-I-I-I d-d-don't kn-kn-know, sh-sh-sh-…" Finn finished the
sentence for his girlfriend, "She disappeared San, we were watching her but
somehow she slipped away while she was dancing with this chick named Tiffany."
Both Rachel and Finn could see Santana's dark eyes pop out of its sockets even
even behind her sunglasses and she growled through clenched teeth, "Why did
you even let her fucking dance with that tramp?!" Rachel gulped and said, "What
more could I do, physically restrain her? We are not the babysitters here, we were
just keeping her company!" Santana flipped over the table sending Rachel and
Finn scurrying away and looking at Santana with horrified looks on their faces.
Santana screamed, "IF I CAN'T FIND MY BABY SOON I WILL FIRE BOTH OF YOUR
ASSES, DO YOU FUCKIN' GET IT?!" Before Santana could get a response, a
bodyguard said to Santana as he pointed to the beach, "Ms. Lopez, look! Santana
looked at his direction and was horrified by what she saw. Brittany was heading
towards the water in the nude with Tiffany following behind her. Santana ran
across the beach, punching Tiffany hard across the face sending her sprawling
across the sand. Santana grabbed Brittany and carried her bridal style towards
the hotel club and Brittany started to cry, "I'm so sorry, so sorry!" Santana
silenced Brittany with a hard kiss on the lips. Santana whispered in Brittany's
ear, "Shhhhhhh I am here to take care of you baby, we are going back to the
suite." Brittany passed out in Santana's arms and Santana hissed at Rachel
and Finn, "Both of you, come along now!" Rachel and Finn followed behind
Santana and as they were heading back, Tiffany came running after Santana.
Santana spun around, kicked Tiffany away shouting, "FUCK OFF, BITCH!"
After the calamity outdoors, Santana put Brittany to bed, making sure
that she was bundled up and comfortable while she was knocked out. Santana
kissed Brittany on the forehead and then met with Rachel and Finn out in the
doorway of the suite. Santana snapped, "I am not going to fire you two
however I wished you two kept a better eye on Britt!" Rachel sighed, "We did
the best that we've could of done and I am sorry that she drank so much."
Santana hissed, "You could've prevented it, I mean why did she even drink to
begin with?" Finn answered, "She wanted to have drinks with us and to hang
with us at the club, she seemed to be having a great time and was carefree."
Santana put her hand in her hair and started to cry, "Oh fuck what am I going to
do? I love her so much, so fuckin' much and I don't want to lose her." Rachel
placed her hand on Santana's shoulder and said, "You won't lose her, she just
needs help and I think therapy will help her." Santana wept, "I am sorry I
screamed at you two, I was just so worried and upset." Finn said, "I understand
and remember, Brittany loves you." Santana nodded through her tears and said
softly, "I know she does." Rachel hugged Santana and said, "Things will work
out and I'll handle the press so you won't have to." Santana hugged Rachel back
and said, "Thank you so much, I think we are going to stay in a few days before
we do anything else. I want her to heal and for us to talk." Rachel said, "Of course,
I'll talk to you in a few then." Finn said as he grabbed Rachel's hand, "See ya soon
and please tell Brittany we are so sorry." Rachel and Finn went to the elevator and
Santana went back into the suite, closing the door behind her and wiping the tears
from her eyes.
In the middle of the night, Brittany woke up violently ill and rushed to the
bathroom, closing the door behind her and vomiting in the toilet. Santana woke
up immediately when she heard the bathroom door close and she got up from the
bed, slipping on a white robe and entered the bathroom. Santana said softly, "Oh
my poor Britt-Britt!" Brittany flushed the toilet, wiped her mouth and leaned
against the wall. Brittany started to cry, "I am so sorry for whatever I've done to
you, I am so fuckin' sorry." Santana got down next to Brittany and stroked her
sweaty blonde hair and said softly, "Don't cry baby, everything will be alright.
You just had too much to drink and some slut tried to take advantage of you."
Brittany sobbed, "Do you know what you've got yourself into, do you really want
this? You can turn back." Santana started to cry again and she took Brittany's
face in her hands and said in a quivering voice, "I will never walk away again, not
like I did before. I love you and I need to be with you. I'll love you throughout the
good times and bad times. I love you unconditionally." Brittany fell into Santana's
arms and cried her heart out and Santana cried with her, holding Brittany firmly
in her arms and kissing her on the forehead. Santana whispered, "We are
together for life, you and me. You are my soul mate." Brittany said through her
sobs, "You are my soul mate too and the love of my life. I can't live without you."
Santana replied, "You are the love of my life too and can't live without you too so
let's not, ok?" Brittany nodded her head and Santana helped her up from the floor
and Santana said, "Let me get you some water that should help you." Santana
poured Brittany a glass of water and Brittany drank it down, and then Santana led
her back to bed, spooning behind Brittany and pulling the covers over them.
Santana kissed Brittany softly on the shoulder and said, "Get some sleep my
The next day Brittany woke up with a massive headache and Santana
awake, reading the newspaper. Brittany groaned, "What time is it, babe?"
Santana replied as she sat the newspaper down, "It's noon and I ordered coffee
ya." Brittany smiled weakly as she sat up in bed, "Thanks, you are so good to me,
even if I don't deserve it." Santana said as she got out of bed, "Now don't start
that shit with me, I love you regardless!" Santana poured Brittany a cup of coffee
and some aspirin for her to take. Brittany replied as she sipped on her coffee,
"You are my lifesaver and my love, I love you too!" Santana sat on the edge of the
bed and said, "And we are still going to get married." Santana took a black velvet
box out of her robe pocket and opened it. Brittany gasped, "Oh my god, it's
beautiful!" In the box was a diamond ring with gold hearts embroidered on the
ring and Santana said, "Regardless of our weaknesses, I still need and want you
to be my wife. Brittany, will you marry me?" Tears formed in Brittany's blue eyes
and she cried, "Of course I will still marry you." Santana slipped the ring on
Brittany's left finger, kissing it softly and then taking Brittany in her arms, giving
her a soft kiss on the lips. Santana smiled sweetly at Brittany and said, "Why
don't we take a few days to relax and talk." Brittany replied, "That sounds perfect,
being in your arms and having you to myself is what I need." Santana explained,
"You realize that it can't all be about sex right? We do need to talk." Brittany
replied, "I do and I am sorry for being a bitch in heat!" Santana sighed, "And quit
apologizing too, I am just to blame as you are. I was a bitch in heat too and my
temper has been nasty as well!" Brittany replied, "Well it is a perfect time to get
our shit together so how do we do it?" Santana answered, "Well we are talking
however how do you feel about going to therapy when we get home?"
To be continued… (Thank you so much for the comments and the encouragement,
I greatly appreciate it. And I agree Santana needs to realize that fucking isn't the
solution to resolve things so there will be more talking in the next chapter.)
