Quinn Fabray was in a wheelchair. It was her fault and she accepted that but it didn't change the facts; she was texting while driving and now she can't walk.
Artie had been great. He helped her learn how to cope with life in a chair and she was dealing but who she wanted to be hit her in the face as she rolled down the hallways.
"Quinn?" Finn Hudson asked as he grabbed her chair.
"What?" the blonde said looking up at him.
"Are you alright? I told you I'd run with you."
"I'm fine. I just want to win," she said.
"Is winning going to make you feel...normal?" he asked.
"No, I don't know. It'll make me feel like my four years here and all the shit I've been through wasn't for nothing," Quinn said with a weak smile. "Prom queens are happier people."
"I believe you and I'm here to help," Finn said with a boyish smile. She returned his smile and he pushed her down the hallway and into an empty classroom.
"What are you doing?"
"I wanted to say some stuff to you."
"What stuff?" she asked.
"I know that since we broke up last year, I haven't really been the best friend to you I could be," he said.
"Finn, it's not a big deal."
"No, it is. I got so wrapped up in me and Rachel that I neglected our friendship, Quinn."
"Ok, so what?"
"I want you to have something," he said reaching into his backpack and pulled out two small ornaments. A sliver tiara with moss green stones and the number five. It was white and trimmed in red.
"Are those ornaments?" Quinn asked taking them from him.
"Yeah they are," Finn said smiling brightly. "They represent you and me," he said pointing to each one.
"I don't understand." she said. "Look, the tiara is clearly you. And I'm the five," he said. He took a deep breathe and continued. "Check this out." Finn took the ornaments from her. He placed the tiara on top of the five. "The five supports the tiara."
"Oh," Quinn said taking them back from him.
"I'm gonna always support you Quinn. I know that I haven't done a good job of that lately but I'm back to supporting you like I should," he said.
"Listen, I know I just want you to have these. They're just a reminder."
"That no matter where we are, I'm always gonna be supporting you," he said as he leaned down and hugged her tightly. Finn held her as he felt her tears fall to his shoulder.
"Thank you Finn," Quinn said as he pulled away.
"I love you," Finn said wiping the tears from her eyes.
"I love you too," Quinn said. Finn gave gave her a boyish smile.
