So prom is tomorrow and I have been busy handing out pens, cupcakes, and flyers to everyone. I’m so excited, this is how it was suppose to always be. Finn and I at prom together winning king and queen.

Santana is running for prom queen too with Karofsky. How petty. I was taking down all of her posters. Don't worry it was during class so nobody was in the halls. Well I thought nobody would be, that is until I saw him. Puck.

He was walking towards me. I stopped and stood in the middle of the hall waiting for him to come talk to me. He didn't. He walked past me! I turned around and yelled,

“Hey!” He stopped and turned around,

“Oh I thought you were still mad at me.”

“It's whatever I'm over it.” He walked closer to me,

“So you're going to stop calling me Noah.”


“Good because I prefer Puck.”

“Well good luck tonight.” I said to break the awkwardness.

“Thanks. Between you and me I don't want to win this. It would totally bring down my reputation. So I’m going to spike the punch.” I shook my head.

“Well good luck with that.” I knew he never wanted to be king. Then why did he agree to it to Lauren? So I asked,

“So then why did you agree to it with Lauren?”

“Because she is my girlfriend.”

“Well when I asked you last year you said no.” I was a little angry.

“Well I was less mature last year. Honestly do you ever remember me having a girlfriend, one that I would flaunt around and hold hands with in public.” He has gotten mature.

"You used to hold my hand."

"Well we were never official because it would have ruined your reputation."He made me sound like I was a monster.

We sat there is silence until I said,

“Good for you Puck. I'm glad you found someone.”

“Yeah well others don't understand that I am just growing up. They all think Lauren wears the pants in our relationship. Which isn't true at all!”

“Well I don't think that.” He smiled.

“Well I should be going.”

“Yeah me too.”

“Good luck tonight. I'm voting for you.” He smirked and walked away.

Well that's one vote down.


So It's prom night and I'm in my room getting ready. I'm wearing a gorgeous blue dress that shows off my figure. While waiting for Finn I decided to try on some of the crowns I have in my room just to practice how to smile with it on.

My mom yelled from downstairs that Finn was here. I walked down the staircase and saw Finn. He was so handsome with a blue tie to match me. He said I was the most gorgeous girl he'd had ever seen. Eat your heart out Rachel. Anyway he gave me this cute wrist corsage that had a tiny light green ribbon that matched my eyes. It was perfect. This night was going to be perfect!

When we got to the prom it was everything I was dreaming it would look like. Finn and I danced. Until Finn decided to go over to Rachel and Jessie to tell them to keep it clean because I guess they were kissing.

They got into a fight! A fight! And Mrs. Sylvester intervened and threw them out! This ruined my prom night! The only thing that would save this night was if I won prom queen.

When they announced the king of prom Puck was up there looking uninterested but he looked great in his white suit. He really stood out.

So Karofsky won. Which I didn't care about since Finn obviously couldn't win.

Here it is Prom Queen.

"And the Prom Queen goes to....Kurt Hummel!"

KURT?! Is this some kind of joke!? He is a man!? This was humiliating! I ran into the bathroom.

Rachel met me in there and said some crap about how she was sorry Finn got kicked out blah blah blah. I was just pissed off so I slapped her. Hard. I apologized. And started crying. She said it was okay and that it was kind of life revealing getting slapped. She would.

So she told me that I should just go show everyone that it didn't hurt me that I didn't won that even though it meant a lot to me show people that it didn't. She was right so I went out to the dance floor and danced the night away with Puck, Rachel, Sam, Mercedes, and Lauren.

It was a lot of fun and I had it all without a crown. And I was happy for Kurt although I think it was a joke he embraced it. I’ll just have to work harder for next year.


I didn't have a ride home after prom because Finn just left without even telling me. It was really late and I was so tired. I sat outside the school trying to call my mom but she didn't answer she probably fell asleep. So I sat there not knowing how to get back home. I called everyone; Finn, Rachel, Kurt, Santana, Brittany, Artie, Mike, and Tina. They all left before me. I stayed to the very end.

There was one person I hadn't called and I don't know why I didn't. I just thought he would of been with Lauren, that this night would have been the night they finally did it so I didn't want to interrupt.

I don't know how I was going to get home I guess I could walk, until my mom picked up but this is a designer dress and heels!

So I gave in and called him. It was ringing. And then I heard another ringing from a cell phone behind me coming out of the school. I turned around and it was him. I said extremely happy,

“Oh my God! Thank God you're here. I need a ride home Finn left without me and I called everyone else and nobody answered!”

“I was the last one you called? You should have called me first.” He came closer.

“I know I just thought you would have been with Lauren, you know doing it for the first time.”

“First of all on prom night? How cheesy. And secondly she went home along time ago, said she was tired.”

“Oh I'm sorry.”

“It's cool. So you ready?” He helped me up. We started walking to his car when he said,

“You look absolutely stunning.” He looked me up and down. I blushed.

“Why thank you. You look very handsome as well.” He smiled.

We reached his car. He went over to the passengers seat and opened it for me. What a gentleman. He went to the other side and got in. He started the car. I said,

“So did you spike the punch bowl?”

“Sorta didn't work out as planned.”

“Yeah my night didn't either.”

“What you didn't plan me driving you home?” He said sarcastically.

“No not really it wasn't in my prom to do book.”

“You actually had one of those?” He laughed.

“Yes! And nowhere did it say Finn gets in a fight and gets kicked out. And it definitely didn't say I didn't win.”

“So what if you didn't win. It's only prom queen.” ONLY prom queen!?

“Being prom queen is all I have to look forward to. I’m not going to go anywhere after high school. I'm going to be a nobody.” For some reason tears started fallen down my face. “I used to have this image of Finn and I raising a family here while he worked at Kurt’s dads auto shop as I stayed home with our kids. But recently I can't picture that image anymore.” Puck looked puzzled

“Who do you imagine it with?”

“Nobody. It's all a big blur. My future is a big blur.” Puck pulled into my driveway. He turned to me and wiped my tears off my face. He looked me in the eyes and said

“Quinn you don't need a man to complete you. You're smart, beautiful, and very likable.” I smiled and bit my lip.

“I can see your future Quinn…” He pulled me closer to him. “I see you in a great college, then having an amazing family, four kids and a loving husband who will always be by your side.” I smiled while I wiped my eyes. “See you don't need to worry.” Then he kissed the top of my head and it felt warm and sweet. I sniffled and said,

“There is only one problem with that future.”

“What is that?”

“You're not in it.” We both smiled.

“I’ll always be there for you Quinn.”

I leaned in and kissed him on the lips. It was just a reaction he was being so sweet. But he kissed me back.

He back away looking shocked.

“I’m sorry Puck it was just…” He cut me off.

“It’s okay just… please don't tell anyone.” He looked confused

“Yeah I won't. I'm sorry again. Night.” I unbuckled my seatbelt and opened my door. Puck grabbed my hand and pulled me towards him and kissed me. It was a passionate kiss. It was better than when I saw fireworks with Finn it was something so much more. He let go,

“Okay don't tell anyone about that one either.” He gave me that smirk and I got out of the car and watched him drive away.

I quickly ran upstairs so my mother didn't notice me being out so late. I changed and got into bed. What just happened!? I kissed Puck and then he gave me the best kiss I have ever had! I obviously can't tell anyone it would ruin my relationship with Finn, if we even have one still after that stunt he pulled at the prom, but also it would ruin Puck and Lauren’s relationship, and he seems so happy with her. Well if he seemed happy with her why did he kiss me? Why is he always there when I need someone? Can't he just not care about me for one day? God I’m not getting any sleep tonight.
