Our Song

Our Song

I was riding shotgun with my hair undone

In the front seat of his carHe's got a one-hand feel on the steering wheelThe other on my heart

"This was so much Fun!" a happy Rachel said to her boyfriend of three years, Sam Evans. The two had been together ever since January of 2012, when Finn inevitably cheated on her and Sam ended up consoling her. At the time Sam, had been trying to move on Mercedes and luckily with each other's help, the two moved on

"I'm glad you like it" Sam said and grabbed her hand. He kissed it lightly and then turned on his truck and started driving with one hand out of the park where they had just celebrated their anniversary.

"He is the best boyfriend ever!" She thought happily as she turned on the radio to listen to some music.

I look around, turn the radio down

He says, "Baby is something wrong?"I say, "Nothing, I was just thinkingHow we don't have a song."

They are halfway back to her house when she gets a sudden thought. It automatically diminishes the happiness she had been feeling a few seconds ago. She looks around look around the truck and then turn the radio down. I really want to think clearly and music will just distract me. Sam glances at her, with a worried look on his beautiful face.

"Baby, are you OK? Is something wrong" He asks.

"It's nothing." I say nonchalantly.

" Rach, we've been dating for a long time, you know you can't fool me that easily.: the self proclaimed Blonde Bieber says and kisses her cheek when they stop at a red light.

" That's just it Sammy, we've been dating since our Senior year and yet we still don't have a couple song!" I sigh sadly.

He laughs and shakes his head.

"Is that all you're worried about?" He says with his trademark half grin.

And he says,"Our song is the slamming screen doorSneakin' out late, tapping on your window.When we're on the phone and you talk real slow'Cause it's late and your daddy don't know."

"This is a serious matter Samuel Evans and it isn't a laughing matter!" I say angrily.

"Rach, we do have a song" He says.

"No we don't." I say and pout.

"Yes we do." He shoots right back.

"Oh yeah?" I ask sarcastically.

"Yeah!" he says and grins.

"Prove it." I tell him angrily and cross my arms.

All of a sudden he kisses her, catching her by surprise. The kiss is oh so passionate. His lips mashing with hers, even after all this years, the sparks are still present. She could even argue that their stronger then ever! But to date, this is the best kiss yet! He then breaks the kiss and clears his throat to speak.

"Look feel this." He tells the petite brunette in front of him and grabs her hand to lay it on his heart.

For once in her life, she stays quiet and to her surprise she starts hearing Sam's heart beating. She can practically feel it as her hand remains firmly planted on his check.

"Is that normal?" She asks referring to his irregular heartbeat a few second ago. Then she hears more in succession and panics, her mind automatically going to the worst case scenario.

"Relax, it only happens when I'm with you." Sam says and gives her the smile she has come to love so much.

"I do that to you?" Rachel is astonished at the news. In her 21 years on this earth, she had only been with four men. She has heard countless of times that one must never regrets their decision that were made in the past. However, if she could go back in time, she'd rather loose her virginity to Sam instead of Finn. Every time she is with Sam sexually, she can't help but notice that he is a better lover. He's caring, loving and very attentive. Something Finn lacked, which frustrated her to no end.

"Yea, you Rachel Barbara Berry drive me fucking crazy." Sam says and gives her a peck on the lips.

"You know what else is part of our song?" He breaths in my ear.

"N-no what?" I say nervously.

"When I tapped your window, so I can sneak into your room and then sneaking out late because time flies when I'm with you. Then there's our late night phone conversations that we have and you talking in a whisper since your dads don't know a thing." He says.

I am surprised to say the least. Sam has never been with words. Yet right now, he has spoken more about his feelings then in all the time I've known him combined.

"Wow" Is all she can say at his revelation and it seems Sam has accomplished the inevitable cause he has just left Rachel Berry speechless for once in her life.

Our song is the way you laugh

The first date man, I didn't kiss her and I should haveAnd when I got home, 'fore I said amenAsking God if he could play it again

"There's more though." He whispers in her other ear. Their drive back home long forgotten.

"Oh my god, really?" I ask still surprised.

"Yup, you remember our first official date, right?" he asks as we are cuddling in his truck.

"How could I forget it! She exclaims, loving the fact that he still remembers the even before there was love, they were once really good friends.

"Well, the thing I love the most that day was hearing you laugh at my stupid jokes." He confesses.

"Why my laugh?" I ask.

"Because it just made me want to kiss you more." Sam confesses, red already forming in his cheeks.

"What! Then how come you didn't go for it and actually kiss me." At this point she is kind of scolding him cause they have been together much quicker if he had made the first.

" I don't even know what I was thinking either. All I know is I was wimp for not kissing you on our date." there he goes again, with the dam smile that just keeps getting brighter and brighter.

"We've been doing that a lot today" I thought seeing his lovely smile.

"You know, I never been that religious, but it all changed after I got back home." Sam says bashfully.

"What made you be more devoted to god then?" I asked really wanting to know the answer.

"I loved our date so much, that I basically prayed to god to let me relive it again and again." He says and looks down.

"My only thought was how I should have kissed you!" he continues.

I was walking up the front porch steps

After everything that dayHad gone all wrong or been trampled onAnd lost and thrown away

"That was my favorite day too, but I will never forget when we went searching for you snd we find out you been working as a stripper in Kentucky. " She can't help but smirk at the memory and to this day, she's glad that no one but her can see those abs of his.

"Why?" He asked oh so cutely.

"Because I seriously thought we were going to loose Sectionals and let's not forget that Quinn was set on destroying Shelby. " I answered.

"And that makes you happy?" He asked confused.

"Even though everything seemed to have been going wrong that day, New Directions managed to pull through. I loved hearing you sing Man in the Mirror with the rest of the guys. That was the moment where u finally shined and was no longer just another member. Although your days in the Justin Bieber Experience come close." Rachel says, fill with happiness.

"Yeah, the was wicked. I'm guessing you also enjoyed my little dance then?" Sam teases, knowing full well that she had been looking at him the entire time. It makes him so happy that she didn't even spare Finn a second glance. The thought of it made Sam that much more happy, so he just ended kissing her again.

A groan escaped his lips when she pulled away after only a few seconds to keep talking.

"And that was also the day I realized that the reason why I had missed you so much was because I was in love with you." She lowers her head, a bit embarrass to admit it, but Sam just bring her head back and looks directly into those chocolate brown orbs/

"I still love you Rach, and I don't care how weird it sounds but there's never a time when I'm not thinking about you! " He exclaimed and did his trademark half grin.

"I love you too Sam. Always have always will." I told him and kissed him passionately.

Got to the hallway, well, on my way

To my lovin' bedI almost didn't notice all the rosesAnd the note that said

A few minutes later we got out of the truck and made our way to our apartment. Not once breaking the kiss.

"Wait" Sam said.


"I have a surprise for you Rae."


"What is it?" I asked intrigued.

"Close your eyes" He ordered and she obeyed immediately.

Sam covered her eyes with a blindfold, making sure she could not see and helped her walked to a destination that he has yet to inform her of.

The sound of the door being opened did not escape her ears and for a few seconds, silence enveloped her. Then, she literally felt when Sam walked into the room. Which helped eased her worries that he had just ditched her in the middle of nowhere.

He took the blindfold off and then once Rachel eyes adjusted, she was a bit shocked.

There in front of of the Jewish American Princess (a nickname that had stuck with her even after all this years) was Samuel Evans on one knee!

"What are you doing?" She asked in a panicked voice.

He ignored the question and as brave as he could said: "Rachel Barbra Berry, will you marry me?"

She couldn't help to tear up and then nodded her head frantically.

"Y-yes, Sam, nothing could make me happier then being with you for the rest of my life. Not even a Tony or meeting Barbara Streissand could amount to how happy you've just made. " She stuttered out as he placed the simple yet beautiful diamond ring on her ring finger.

"Mrs. Rachel Evans has a nice ring to it, don't you think?" He asked and smiled

Rachel Barbra Evans does sound nice...

Our song is the way you laugh

The first date man, I didn't kiss her and I should haveAnd when I got home, 'fore I said amenAsking God if He could play it again

"Do you Samuel Evans, take Rachel Barbra Berry as your wedded wife? To have and to hold. In health and richness. Till death do you part?" asked the priest.

"Hell Yes!" he exclaimed, making the people who attended their wedding laugh.

The priest also let out a quiet chuckle at Sam's outburst and then continued with the ceremony.

"Do you Rachel Barbra Berry take Sam Evans as you husband? To have and to hold. In health or richness. Till death do you part?" repeated the priest but this time to Rachel, his soon to be wife.

"Yes!" She exclaimed happily.

From the first two rows the whole Glee Club plus Mrs. Pillsbury, April Rhodes and Mrs. Holliday cheered. While Mrs Evans began crying with tears of joy along with both of Rachel's dads. They were all happy to see that those two had finally made it.

And from the distance, Shelby Corcoran was watching her eldest daughter getting married.

"You see that Beth? That's your Big sister!" She told the little girl in her arms.

She had received an invitation to the Wedding but found herself not being able to attend. Stopping herself at the door of the church.

"She is happy now. No reason for me to ruin that." Shelby said to herself and got back in the taxicab.

"Back to the airport please." She informed the driver.

"Crashing a wedding?" asked the nosy driver.

"No, it was my eldest daughter's wedding" She said and smiled.

Good Luck with your new life with Sam at your side Rachel. I'll always have a special part of my heart for you. Maybe someday I'll pay you a visit to finally be the mother that you have always wanted.

I've heard every album, listened to the radio

Waited for something to come along

That was as good as our song

"What god has bonded in this church, may no man ever break it. You may now kiss the bride." said the priest.

"Finally!" said Sam and kissed Rachel with everything he had.

"Congrats guys!" said the best man, Puck and the maid of honor, Santana Lopez.

It's safe to say that now, no single trace of the animosity that plagued throughout high school existed. She even consider the Latina, who used to be one of her main tormentors, her closest friend.

The newly weds walked together side by side and along with everyone got outside the church.

There they posed for some pictures and then got into a limo with a gold star on the back.

"I never pictured myself getting married so young but I got to admit, I always saw you next to me." Rachel confessed once they were inside the limo.

"Wow, your officially mine! And I can finally call you my wife." Sam whispered, his tone lingering on lustful.

" I was always yours Sammy." and kissed him once more.

"I love you so freaking much, Rachel Barbra Evans." he mused, thinking that it's never going to get old saying that.

Cause our song is the slamming screen door

Sneakin' out late, tapping on his windowWhen we're on the phone and he talks real slow'Cause it's late and his mama don't know

"I always knew those two kids would go on to have babies." Said Sue Sylvester to Becky Johnson. She was seeing the picture of the couple with two children. A boy and a girl of about 2 and 4 years old.

"How did you know?" asked the blonde.

"Because the way they looked at each other was beyond my comprehension at that time. But in a way, they balanced out each other quite nicely. He mellowed her out and she made him work harder for the things he wanted in life."

"So that's why finally gave the Glee club your blessing when they made it to Nationals their senior year." Becky stated as she understood what had puzzled her all those years ago.

"Yes,I never really hated them. I think I was mostly jealous of the fact that they were singing their hearts out. Meanwhile, I was just a bitter woman with crushed dreams

"You do have heart Mrs. Sylvester, I knew it all along." He sister said and smiled.

Our song is the way he laughs

The first date man, I didn't kiss him and I should have

And when I got home, 'fore I said amen

Asking God if He could play it againPlay it again, oh, yeah, oh, oh, yeah

"Rachel?" said a voice of man.

She turned around and was surprised to see her ex-boyfriend.

"What are you doing here Finn." She spat venomously.

"How have been?" He asked.

" Good happily married and a proud mom of two." She said happily and unconsciously rubbed placed on her hands on her stomach.

"You're married and with kids?"Finn asked, completely shocked, with his facial expression bordering on stupid.

"Yes, Hudson, I am. What's it to you?" She said annoyed.

She had been auditoning for a role on Les Mis here in New York City when she bumped into him.

" I thought you loved me?" He said a bit torned.

"See, I don't think I ever did. You treated me like crap and never stood up for me. Frankly, you were a incompetent boyfriend that had a tendency to behave like a caveman.

"Oh, just one question. Who did you marry?" He asked almost sure of the answer.

"Sam." She said and walked out.

"Hey, what took you so long?" asked her husband worriedly.

"I bumped into someone." She stated.

"Really? Someone from Glee?" He asked.

"Nope, it was nobody important." She said and got inside the car to be greeted by her two lovely kids sitting in the back watching a DVD of The Smurfs.

Sam got inside but noticed the face of his old rival on the other side of the glass door.

Surprisingly, he had no anger or jealousy in his body.

Because at the end of the day, he got the girl.

I was riding shotgun with my hair undone

In the front seat of his carI grabbed a pen and an old napkinAnd I wrote down our song

"Even after all this years, I still love you, if not more then when I was the geeky Trouty Mouth." Said a 40 year old Sam, who still had his abs from his teenage years.

"Yeah me too, babe, me too. You saw me and loved me for my knee high socks, unique beauty, short skirts and argyle animal sweaters." She said and grinned as he enveloped her in a hug.

The happy couple went to their bed and made love with as much passion as they had the first time they had all those years back.
