"No? Are you okay?" William Schuester asked his student, Rachel Berry. She was known for volunteering to sing every second she got. She would talk her mouth off, but she hadn't said a single word.

Rachel nodded, looking at the floor.

Quinn Fabray watched the small girl. She had noticed that Rachel had changed a lot. She no longer wore those horrid clothes, but she had been wearing dark clothes. She seemed to lose herself, and Quinn hated it.

"Quinnie, what's wrong with Rachel?" Brittany Pearce asked, worried.

"I don't know Britt," Quinn muttered, not taking her eyes off the small brunette.

"Anyone want to sing?" the teacher asked his students.

Quinn raised her hand. Once the teacher nodded, she walked to the musicians and gave told them her song choice.

She stood in the middle of the class, staring at her teammates, her friends. She looked at her two best friends, smiling, telling them she was going to do it.

She had been in love with someone since the first day of school, and she was going to show case it. She didn't want to keep a secret. She was done with secrets.

(Quinn, Santana and Brittany)

Da da da da da
Da da da da da
Da da da da da

Quinn stood there, looking at her friends, her family. They gave her everything, and helped her when she thought everything was over.

I'm tugging at my hair
I'm pulling at my clothes
I'm trying to keep my cool
I know it shows

I'm staring at my feet
My cheeks are turning red
I'm searching for the words inside my head

She did everything the lyrics said. She was nervous, and suddenly regret doing the song. She couldn't go threw it, but one look at her friends, and she knew it was now or never.

Cause I'm feeling nervous
Trying to be so perfect
Cause I know you're worth it
You're worth it
Yeah

She stared at Rachel, as she said that. Rachel just stared back. She was in love with the Rachel Berry that annoyed the hell out of her.

If I could say what I want to say
I'd say I wanna blow you... away
Be with you every night
Am I squeezing you too tight

She wrapped her arms around herself, wishing Rachel was in her arms.

If I could say what I want to see
I want to see you go down
On one knee
Marry me today
Guess, I'm wishing my life away
With these things I'll never say

She smiled softly, as she got on one knee in front of Rachel. She took her hand.

It don't do me any good
It's just a waste of time
What use is it to you
What's on my mind
If it ain't coming out
We're not going anywhere
So why can't I just tell you that I care

She stood up, with Rachel's hand in tact. She pulled the girl in front of the others with her.

Cause I'm feeling nervous
Trying to be so perfect
Cause I know you're worth it
You're worth it
Yeah

She looked into the other girl's eyes and smiled. She gently touched her cheek.

If I could say what I want to say
I'd say I wanna blow you... away
Be with you every night
Am I squeezing you too tight

She squeezed Rachel's hand, as she faced the rest of Glee Club.

If I could say what I want to see
I want to see you go down
On one knee
Marry me today
Guess, I'm wishing my life away
With these things I'll never say

Quinn smiled, happy she was able to tell the other girl what she was feeling. Santana Lopez and Brittany jumped up and mimicked the two girls.

What is wrong with my tongue
What's wrong with my tongue
These words keep slipping away

I stutter, I stumble
I stutter, I stumble
Like I've got nothing to say

Santana and Brittany sang background to the song. Quinn looked to the ground, suddenly shy.

Cause I'm feeling nervous
Trying to be so perfect
Cause I know you're worth it
You're worth it
Yeah

Quinn was getting into the song, as was her back up. She was smiling, and so happy.

Da da da da
Da da da da
Da da da da
Da da da da

She smiled at the others in the club. She wanted to show them what she felt, and she was proud of it.

Guess I'm wishing my life away with these things I'll never say
If I could say what I want to say
I'd say I wanna blow you...away
Be with you every night
Am I squeezing you too tight
If I could say what I want to see
I want to see you go down
On one knee
Marry me today
Guess, I'm wishing my life away
With these things I'll never say
These things I'll never say

She stayed standing there, not moving.

No one said anything, as they realized the song was for Rachel.

Rachel had tears in her eyes, as she stared at the blond girl in front of her. She didn't know what to say, what to do. She just walked out the room.

Quinn watched her leave, her heart breaking.

"Okay, I guess that's it for Glee," the teacher said, awkwardly.

Quinn got her bag and exited the room, tears stinging in her eyes.

"Quinn! Quinn, wait!" she heard Santana Lopez call for her. She didn't stop. Santana reached her, and pulled her, turning her over. "Quinn."

"I sang her the song. I opened up to her! And for what? To be humiliated and rejected by her in front of everyone!" Quinn shouted, hurt and tears running down her face.

"Quinn, Rachel isn't herself," Brittany told her blond friend.

"Yeah, Quinn, maybe it was too much for the Midget," Santana added. "No one can resist you."

Quinn shook her head. She knew it was more than that. Rachel was hiding something, and it was up to her to find out what.

Mourn8220House: When first reading "Avarice," I thought it would be another fairytale but I was taken back the author's approach and choice of ending.

Alex Rushmer: This was not what I expected, but I enjoyed it a lot Malfoy was always one of the characters that I liked a lot, so I like that a lot of this happens between him and Colette.

MelanyFrey: This story is just so realistic and so amazingly written that I felt I was a part of it.

Alex Reltin: This is a great story! I love how well you go into detail and emotions of Capri, and Mel. You have amazing dialogue and overall it's just a thrill to read!The only critique I could find is that some of the paragraphs should be separated. For example:-"If Nia would have just let me take the car an...

LouiseJ2: I enjoyed the detail you went into with regards to the case. It made the UNSUB appear believable. The crisis in the middle of the story was my favorite part, very dramatic but not over the top.

263Adder: Okay so I adore this story. I only knocked one star off plot for historical inaccuracies because I'm a bit of a stickler for that. The ending broke my heart though, considering you already changed history couldn't you (SPOILER) change it a bit more and have them together!!!! I want an alternative...

GeorgeS: The author has a VERY refreshingly direct writing style. Sometimes being punched in the gut (or nose, as the case may be) can be an excellent thing, indeed. Whatever may be lacking in subtlety is more than made up for in the diamond clarity of character development. I look forward to MORE. I c...
