Their final year in elementary school. Puck and Matt were in their first year in Lima Middle School. Rachel looked around and smiled at her best friend who was on the other side of the classroom. The teacher made the. sit in alphabetical order. Rachel sat next to Mike. Lauren sat in the back of the class, much to her pleasure. Quinn sat next to Sam, which Sam was happy about. Finn, Santana, Brittany, and Rory were in the classroom across of them. Mercedes, Artie, Tina were down the hall. Kurt and Sugar were in a class in the middle of the hallway. The kids weren't happy to be split that much, but had to deal with it.
Quinn was raising her hand. She was staring at the equation on the chalkboard in front of her. It was bothering her, and she had to say something before she exploded. "Miss?"
"Yes, is something wrong Lu- I mean Quinn?" she asked, correcting herself when she was about to call the girl by her first name. The girl's mother had told her about Quinn's name. She heard about her past. What had happened the year before, and how she hated the name Lucy.
There was an equation on the board, 6x7+8-4. The teacher wrote 44 as the answer, but Quinn knew it was wrong.
"Th-the answer is 46, n-not 44," she answered, still shy around teachers.
She looked at her student, then at the equation. She blushed, as a girl 1/4 her age corrected her. "You're right," she admitted, giving the blond girl a smile.
Quinn grinned. The last time she correct an adult, she got punished. She learned to never correct her father again. Her back still hurt, but she told no one. Her mother was out with Sam, getting a few school supplies he forgot he needed. Frannie was with her friends, shopping for clothes.
Quinn shook the memory out of her head and started to help Sam in his work. Rachel had been watching her. Rachel saw as Quinn remembered about her pain. Rachel frowned, but continued with her work.
It was soon recess, and all the children were out playing. Most of the group was out, but were waiting for Kurt and Sugar. They were going to play kickball, and wanted to have the team captains, Mike and Brittany, to choose. Soon, Kurt and Sugar walked to them with two other kids. One was a girl, she was brunette, and the other, a boy, had dreadlocks
"Hey guys, these are Joseph Hart and Harmony Pearce. Our teacher made us get in groups of four, and they are pretty cool," Sugar told the other members of the group.
"Hey," Harmony said, as she smiled at them. Her eyes lingered a little on Finn, but the boy didn't notice. She wanted to get his attention.
"Sup, call me Joe," Joe said, grinning, but staring at Quinn, who felt weirded out. She frowned at him, but he didn't notice.
"It's a pleasure to meet you two. I am Rachel Berry, these are my friends, Quinn Fabray, Santana Lopez," she started, as she pointed to the people next to her.
"We're not friends," Santana said, sticking her tongue out at Rachel. Quinn, staring back at Joe, just grabbed her hand.
"That Brittany Pierce," Rachel continued as she rolled her eyes at Santana's statement.
"We have the same last name," Brittany said, smiling at Harmony who smiled back and nodded.
"Sam Fabray, Quinn's twin," Sam glared at Joe for staring at his sister, "Mercedes Jones, Artie Abrams, Tina Cohen-Chang, Mike Chang, they are not related. Rory Flanigan, Lauren Zizes, and Finn Hudson."
"Hey," Finn said, giving the two a grin. "There are two more, but they left. Puck, Rachel's big brother, and Matt Rutherford, Mike's friend."
Joe nodded. Harmony just stared at Finn who smiled back. Quinn frowned as she watched the girl stare at one of her best friends.
"Can we play now?" Sam whined, not wanting to waste anymore time. He knew that recess would end soon, and there wouldn't be enough time to finish the game. He also wanted the boy with the dreadlocks to quite staring at his twin.
Brittany decided to go first. "San." No matter what, she picked her best friend.
Mike went next, "Sam."
No one said anything. "Britt, you can't choosce yourself," Santana told her. Brittany frowned but nodded.
"The girl with the long hair," Brittany said as she pointed at Joe.
"So I get Harmony," Mike said, not wanting to laugh at what his blond friend called Joe.
They started to play. They couldn't finish because of the time they wasted before.
They were going to finish in lunch.
"Finn!" Rachel shouted as she ran to him. Quinn was talking to Santana and Brittany.
Harmony watched as the two talked. She saw Finn grin and nodded, then hugged Rachel. She clenched her fists.
"I think Quinn is cute," Joe told his friend, as he stared at the blond.
"Finn is cute too, but Rachel is hugging him," Harmony said, all jealous.
"Can we invite them to your house?" Joe asked, as Quinn hugged Rachel.
"Just those two?" Harmony questioned, looking at her childhood friend.
"We'll try, but if not, we'll have to invite all of them," Joe said, glaring at the guy who was talking to his crush, Mike.
Harmony nodded and went to class with her friend.
"Hey Quinn!" she heard someone say. She turned and saw the guy with dreadlocks running after her. She wished she didn't have to go to the restroom. The guy creeped her out a bit.
"Hey, uh Joe was it? Are you in need of anything?" the blond said, looking around.
"Do you and uh, Finn want to go to Harmony's house this Friday?" he asked, looking hopeful.
"M-my mom doesn't let me go anywhere without Sam or Rachel. And we had already planned a sleepover with San, Britt, and Finn. Sorry," she told him, not really sorry, but only to be polite.
Joe nodded, disappointed.
"I uh, I have to go back to class. She'll think I was roaming the halls," Quinn said as she walked away.
Joe stood there confused, 'roaming' what's that?
"I don't like him," Rachel told Quinn, after she had heard about what had happened in the hallway. "I should have gone with you."
"He stared too much. It makes me uncomfortable. And I've noticed Harmony stare at Finn, but I don't know if she's like Joe or not," Quinn said, as they walked to the courtyard. It was lunch, and the kids were going to play again. "Speak of the devil," Quinn muttered, but smiled at the boy that was walking towards her.
"Hey, Quinn, having a fun lunch?" he asked, smiling at her, but ignoring Rachel.
"Rude," Rachel whispered as she watched the guy flirt with her best friend. She was not happy.
"Well it's barely began, but I was enjoying the time I had to talk to my best friend, before we were rudely interrupted," she said, crossing her arms in front of her chest.
"Why do you talk like that?" he asked, tilting his head in a way he thought was cute.
"Cause I have a bigger vocabulary than you, and I know how to incorporate them in a sentence," she said, as if it were obvious.
Rachel had to cover her mouth to keep from laughing.
Joe frowned, feeling like he was being mocked.
"Now, if you'll excuse me, I have to talk to my brother," she said, as she turned, Rachel smirking at the shocked boy.
"That was awesome," Rachel commented, laughing, as the walked to their group.
"For once, I'm thankful for my daddy's lessons," she said, smiling in return.
Rachel nodded, grabbing her hand.
"Sammy!" Quinn shouted, knowing Santana, Brittany, and Finn would follow. They'll six knew that when someone said a nickname, something was up. Sam was Sammy, Quinn was Quinnie, Rachel was Rachie, Brittany was Britt-Britt, Finn as Finny, and Santana, was Santy.
"What's up," he asked, as the six made a circle.
"I don't like Joe. He's creeping me out," Quinn told him, as Rachel nodded.
"He's always staring at you," Sam added, agreeing with the two girls.
"Like he is now?" Brittany asked, causing all of them to look. "He looks like those, uh, cereal killers. I'm not letting him near my Lucky Charms, and I'm going to tell Rory to keep him away from the rainbow."
Finn looked at his two friends, then at the boy. "What are we going to do about it?" He asked, looking at Santana.
"I have an idea," she said, smirking.
"No, you can't hurt anyone," Quinn told her, staring at Santana.
"Fine, for you, I have nothing," Santana said.
"Why don't we speak with the others. See how they feel about this," Sam suggested, looking at his five friends.
Quinn and Rachel nodded at the same time. Finn agreed, then Brittany.
"Fine, lets do it the boring way," Santana said, pouting at them.
"What did you want to talk to us about?" Kurt asked, as the sixteen children, even Puck and Matt, sat in a circle in the basement of the Berry house.
"Harmony and Joe. What do you guys think of him?" Rachel asked the group.
"Joe's creepy," Quinn said first, "I don't know about Harmony."
"He's a cereal killer. She can be his side kick."
"I don't like them. This is enough people," Santana said.
"Maybe we should stop," Artie said, looking around.
"What do you mean?" Finn asked, frowning.
"Maybe we should make other friends," he clarified.
"Why? You don't want to be our friend?" Brittany asked, tears welling up in her eyes.
"No! It's just, it's always us, not with other people," he told them.
"We're not stopping you. If you don't want to be friends with us, then you can go," Quinn told him, glaring. The kids were shocked. They didn't expect Quinn to say anything like that before.
"Th-that's not what I meant!" Artie tried to defend himself.
"No, you want to disband our friendship. We just friends, we are a family! If it weren't for you guys, I wouldn't have been the person I am, I would have been mean, like my sister. I wouldn't have any friends," she told them, glaring at Artie.
"I would have probably repeated a grade, if it weren't for the help you guys gave me in my school work," Sam admitted.
"I probably wouldn't have friends. Dave and Azimo would have probably bullied me," Rachel told the group.
"You guys helped me deal with my mom's death," Kurt said.
"I don't want to not be friends with you guys," Mercedes said as she grabbed Kurt and Tina's hand.
"I'm sorry," Artie whispered to the people. "I didn't notice how you guys felt. I'm happy being your friends."
"So we're all going to be friends forever?" Finn asked, smiling at the group.
Everyone nodded. "You guys can talk to other people. We don't have to be together twenty four-seven," Quinn told her friends.
"So Joe and Harmony can be your friends, but they are not ours," Rachel added, pointing to the Faberrson and Brittana.
The others nodded, coming to a closing.
"You guys can go if you want, or you can stay. My mom is coming soon with ice cream," Sam announced, causing all of them to stay in the basement.
They each went into their little groups to talk.
"That was fun," Santana stated, when they were in their own circle. "Q has balls."
"You're a guy?" Finn asked, staring at Quinn.
"No! It's a figure of speech," Quinn answered, but noticed Finn's confused face, "she's joking."
"Oh, we could have been twin brothers," Finn said, frowning.
"I thought we were already twins?" Quinn asked, trying to make her tall friend smile.
"Yup, me and Sam and Puck are here to protect you and Rach, and Santana, and Britt," he said, causing the other two boys the nod and the four girls to smile.
"Yeah, nothing will happen to you guys as long as we are here," Puck added, fist bumping his two bros.
