"Seven years ago, my best friend and I were taken from our homes. We never thought we were going to see our families again. Whenever we wanted to give up, we would just think of our families and friends. You guys gave us hope. You gave a reason to not give up, to keep on fighting. We fought for our futures, because I would never let Mike become valedictorian. I'm way better than him," Quinn said, smirking. She grinned at the male dancer. "We did it, and we are all together."

Everyone clapped, as Quinn blushed. She smiled and moved away from the podium. She grinned when she stared at Rachel. Mike was grinning as well. They were all sitting there, ready for the performance they were asked to do. Their lives had hanged, and they were more comfortable singing on stage. Rachel had become more confident when starting their senior year, and started to get the solos.

The speeches were all done, and it was time for their performance. Finn and Sam started to play their guitars with the band and Puck.

Rachel started the song, as the other glee graduates sang harmonized behind her.

Everyone sang with Rachel as the lead.

Finn ended the song.

I'm glad you have been my friendin the time of our lives

Everyone cheered when they finished. Marley was in the audience cheering the loudest. Her sisters and her boyfriend were up there, and she was proud.

The kids finished their graduation, and threw their caps in the air.

Glee

Marley grinned as Finn wrapped his arms around her. They were in the choir room, and Mr. Schue wanted have a dinner with the whole club to celebrate their accomplishment. He wanted everyone to talk about their futures, and what they were going to do.

They all sat down, with their friends, or their significant other. He wanted them to start.

"I'm going to release an album, and tour the world. My first concert will be sold out, but I'll save a ticket for each and every one of you," Mercedes started, as she smiled at her friend and boyfriend. Everyone cheered, as they grinned.

"I'm going to release a fashion line. I'm also going to be on Broadway with Rachel and Blaine. We're going to make it big," Kurt announced, kissing his boyfriend on the cheek.

"I'm going to be a teacher. I'm going to teach kids what you taught us Mr. Shue. I 'm going to to make a difference in their lives, and I'll follow Marley wherever she goes," Finn said, wrapping his arm around his girlfriend.

"I'm to write a movie. I'll get my boy Artie to film it, and you Broadway friends to star in it," Puck grinned, as he laughed.

"I'm going to make a movie, maybe Puck's. I want to see my kids take their first step."

" I'm going to dance in Carnegie Hall," Mike announced, a smile on his face.

"I'm going to stop Lord Tubbington's smoking addiction," Brittany told everyone.

They giggled.

"I'm going to be a doctor. I want to help people," Santana said, shocking everyone. "I hated feeling helpless, and want to make a difference."

"I'm going to be to be a male model," Sam told them, taking the attention from Santana. Quinn caught the eye of her best friend, and smiled.

"I'm going to be an actress," Tina told everyone, surprising them as well. They were hearing things they had never heard before.

Lauren looked at her teammates, and her long time friends. "I'm going to be a badass wrestler."

Everyone cheered, grinning at her.

"I'm going to create a glee club back home," Rory said, half joking, half not.

"I'm going to create a Sex in the City 3," Sugar told everyone. It caused the rest of the club to giggle.

"I'm going to play for the Ohio State Bobcats," Matt told his friends. He had returned for his friend. He was finishing his first year of OSU.

"Broadway," was all Brody said. He was going to NYADA, and had also returned for the graduation.

"We're going to will Sectional, Regionals, and Nationals for you guys," Marley said on behalf of the juniors. Bree and Katie wanted to more spend time with their boyfriends, that they joined the club.

Rachel and Quinn were the last ones. Quinn smiled at Rachel, telling her to go first.

"I'm going to win a tony. I'm going to watch Quinn graduate at the top of her class. I'm going to start a foundation for kids and families that have lost a their child, like we lost Beth," Rachel told everyone, as she gripped Quinn's hand.

"I don't know what I want to do. I don't know where I'm going to end up. All I know is that I want Rachel to marry me," Quinn said, as she stood up. She pulled Rachel up to her feet, as she got down on one knee. She reached in her pocket and pulled out a small box. "Rachel, I've been in love with you since I first set my eyes on you thirteen years ago. You light up my life. You make me feel unstoppable. Will you do me the honor of becoming my wife?"

Rachel burst into tears, as she nodded. She pulled Quinn up and kissed her. Everyone cheered at the newly engaged couple. Santana, Marley, Sam, and Puck were the only ones who knew that Quinn wanted to propose, but they didn't tell anyone.

"The only thing I know about my future, is that you're always going to be in it," Quinn muttered, as she put the ring on Rachel's finger and kissed her again.

"I'm going to barf!" Santana exclaimed, laughing.

Both girls smirked and sat down. All the occupants ate, laughed, and joked around before having to leave to school in a month or so.

Glee

"I knew I would find you here," a voice said.

Quinn turned and saw Santana walking up to her.

"What are you doing here?" Quinn asked, as she smiled at her best friend.

"Brittany wanted to have a best friends' day. So everyone's with their best friends. No boyfriend, no girlfriend, no fiancée."

Quinn smiled and nodded. "Who are the best friends?"

"Britt and Rachel. Kurt and Mercedes. Finn, Puck, Sam, and Mike. Jake and Marley. Kitty, Ryder, and Unique. Tina and Artie. Rory and Blaine. The rest are just hanging out with each other. And lastly, you're stuck with me," Santana said, grinning.

Quinn rolled her eyes. "What do you want to do?"

"I just want to talk. We haven't hung out in a while, not since the engagement."

"Talk about what?"

"Have you visited your father?"

"No."

"Why? Do you forgive him?"

"I do."

"Why?"

"He's my dad. Even if he tried to…shoot Rachel. He's still my dad. As messed up as it was, he was trying to look out for me. He was trying to protect me from what he thought was wrong."

"If he had hurt Rachel, would you have forgave him?"

"No."

"So why is this different?"

"Because I don't want to spend my time holding a grudge. I don't want to spend my life hating my father. He may have hurt me, he may have abused me, and a screwed up as it sounds, he helped me. You know, for a year, Marvin would hurt me, and only me? I made this deal, that I would do whatever if he never hit Rachel. I would take her punishment. And I did. My dad trained me to take it."

"That's sad."

Quinn smiled. "It is, but it made me stronger. I forgive my dad, but I'm not letting him get close to me or Rachel."

"The restraining order."

"Yup, that."

"How about him?"

"I don't know. He killed Beth. He hurt Rachel. He tried take her away."

"I get it."

"No you don't. You didn't go through what we did. You didn't lose your daughter before you could hold her. You didn't watch as men raped the love of your life. You don't understand," Quinn snapped.

"I'm sorry," Santana whispered.

"It's suppose to be a fun day. Lets go do something."

"Ice cream, I'm buying."

Quinn nodded and followed Santana before taking one step towards Santana. She looked at the where she was before and frowned at the name; Marvin Eric Ryans.

Glee

"How does it feel to be engaged?" Brittany asked, as she sat across from Rachel. They were at an ice cream parlor.

"Amazing. It's not really different. I mean, we were dating before we made it official. We act engaged, even if we weren't. We just haven't done it."

"It what?"

"It."

"Oh, you haven't had sex yet?"

Rachel blushed and nodded. "I think I'm ready. But I don't know if Quinn is. We haven't talked about."

"Talk to her. Find out if she is. If you do take the next step, just forget everything. Just concentrate on each other."

"Britt?"

"Yeah?"

"You're really smart."

"I know."

Rachel laughed and Brittany laughed with her.

Glee

It was a week before Quinn went to Yale, and Rachel left for NYADA. There were in their room, sitting next to each other.

"Hiram and LeRoy went to dinner together," Quinn whispered.

"Marley is on a date with Finn. And she's going to sleep over at Kitty's house."

"Puck is with Sam and Mike."

"Judy and Millie are in a cooking class."

"We're alone," Quinn said, nervously.

"Are you sure you want to do this?" Rachel questioned, her eyes full of concern.

Quinn didn't answer instead she kissed Rachel on the lips. They moved to lie down the bed, their mouths still connected. Quinn slowly moved to take Rachel's shirt off.

Glee

After their night together, the two of them felt even more connected. They took the next step, and were happy they did.

"Stay with Kurt and Santana," Quinn told Rachel "They'll take care of you."

"I can take care of myself."

"I know. I just feel comfortable if you're with them."

"What about you?"

"I'll be fine."

"Promise you'll take care of yourself."

"I do. I love you. I'll call every day, and visit as much as possible."

Rachel kissed Quinn one last time before she left onto the bus. Kurt, Santana, and Brittany were behind her. The bus started to leave, while Rachel waved. She couldn't wait for the weekend to come. She turned around followed her friends to the apartment they had rented. Their lives were finally looking up.
