Chapter 8

Pretending

Finn's P.O.V

"All you've wanted is for us to be together and now I'm practically begging for you and suddenly you're not interested," I inquired angrily, trying to ignore how absolutely stunning she looked in her costume.

Her brown hair fell on her shoulders perfectly and with those big brown eyes looking at me, it took all of my restraint not to just kiss her right there.

"I am interested. More than interested actually, but I'm leaving Finn. I'm leaving and I'm never coming back. And I'm not going to let anyone get in the way of my dreams," she paused and looked at me sadly, like she was about to cry and added weakly, "I love you."

She smiled at me and turned to get back in her place. I stood there dumbly staring at her until someone yelled, "You're onstage in 5."

I shook my head and ran over to my place.

I heard the beginning strains of music and I sang, Face to face and heart to heart.

We're so close yet so far apart.

I knew how closely this song related to us and Rachel did too. She was singing with me and her beautiful voice drove me insane.

I close my eyes, I look away. That's just because I'm not okay.

I caught Rachel's eye as we did our signature circling move and smiled.

Screw New York and screw Lima.

I was going to be with Rachel no matter what. I loved her and I'd follow her to New York if I had to.

She smiled hesitantly back as we backed away from each other slowly, still singing the chorus.

Out of the corner of my eye, I saw Jesse St. Jackass in the front row, smiling at Rachel. He'd have to kill me before I ever let him screw with Rachel again.

Finally, the song ended and Rachel and I just stared at each other for what felt like an hour. I would've given anything to kiss her again. Throwing caution to the wind, I bent down and kissed her.

Rachel was shocked at first, but slowly she shut her eyes and placed her hand on my chest.

I didn't care who was watching or what anyone was thinking. I didn't care what she thought or about any of our prior history.

I wasn't going to let anything come between us ever again.

I was done pretending like we were perfect for each other or that I didn't love her.

I was done pretending.

I'm Not Letting You Go

Rachel's P.O.V

After rehearsal, my phone vibrated and I checked it.

It was a message from Finn that read, Go outside into the taxi. He knows what to do.

I frowned lightly and wondered what that meant.

I stepped outside of the theater and saw a taxi outside, and the driver was holding a sign with my name on it in Finn's writing.

"Rachel Berry? You're boyfriend has a surprise for you. I'm taking you home to change," he stated gruffly, like he couldn't believe he was doing this.

I looked down at my jeans and t-shirt and shrugged, feeling a twinge of excitement as I hopped into the taxi.

As promised he drove up to my apartment and told me to hurry. I nodded, muttering a quick thanks before running up to our apartment.

I quickly scanned my closet, looking for a nice dress to wear when I spotted my light blue dress. Finn loved it because it reminded him of the one I wore in New York during that competition.

It had a scoop neck and a flowy bottom that went to my knee. I smiled and quickly pulled it on, before going to the bathroom to fix my hair. I put it into the nicest bun that I could in under a minute and ran back downstairs in my black heels.

I got into the cab again and, without saying a word he drove me to the second location.

I glanced out the window in the hope of figuring out where we were going.

I quickly recognized the bridge Finn and I had met on when we were younger. I smiled at the memories that it brought back.

The cab stopped suddenly and the driver called out, "End of the line."

I smiled widely and stepped out looking for any signs of Finn, but I found none.

Suddenly, I paused at the sight of Finn, in tux holding a bouquet of flowers. He looked so much like he did back then that I paused to make sure he was real.

As if sensing my presence, he turned to me and smiled widely. Hesitantly I approached him, but it didn't take long until he was jogging to meet me in the middle. He bent down to peck me on the cheek and held out the bouquet of flowers, proclaiming, "These are for you, Rach."

I grabbed them and smiled widely.

"Thank you, Finn. I love them. What's with all of the secrets?" I inquired curiously.

Finn looked nervous. Really nervous. I noticed that he had candles on the edge of the bridge and I heard soft strains of Faithfully playing.

I looked back at Finn to see him on his knee holding a ring box in front of me.

I gasped and immediately tears began to fall.

"Rachel Berry, I love you so much. I've never love anyone like how I love you. I can't imagine my life without you and I don't want to. We've been together for 8 years and I want to stay together until the day I die. Please, say you'll marry me," he said softly, standing up to look at me.

"Yes! Yes! A million time yes! I love you so much!"

Finn's entire face broke into a smile and he picked up the ring and slid it on my finger.

I laughed out sheer happiness and he picked me up and spun me around.

He enveloped me in a huge hug and whispered, "I don't ever wanna let you go."

"You don't have to," I replied with a huge smile.

We'll Always Be Together

Finn's P.O.V

He watched as Rachel walked down the aisle in the most stunning dress he'd ever seen. She was beautiful.

She was his angel. She smiled at him widely and winked. He smiled back and tried not to laugh.

With her father's on each arm, she slowly came closer and Finn felt his heartbeat speed up.

He couldn't believe that he was marrying Rachel Berry. Rachel was way out of his league but she never seemed to realize.

He felt Puck pat his back and he smiled back at him.

When Rachel finally reached him, her father's lifted her veil and handed her to him.

Leroy whispered in his ear, "Take good care of our baby."

He nodded and replied, "I will."

They smiled at him and quickly took their seats.

The rest of the ceremony seemed to drag on as he waited for the moment when they could say the 'I do's.

Finally, the priest turned to him and asked him if he took Rachel as his wife and he replied quickly, "I do."

Rachel smiled at him, tears rolling down her cheeks. Then the priest turned to her and asked her the same question, to which she replied, "I do."

"With the power vested in me, I pronounce you husband and wife. You may kiss the bride," he proclaimed.

Finn didn't need to be asked twice before tilting Rachel back and kissing her. He quickly pulled away before it took a turn to the inappropriate side and whispered to her, "I love you."

She pulled him into a hug and answered, "I love you too."

"We'll always be together, Rach," he whispered again.

"I can't wait," she replied.

"Me neither."

A/N: I know the last one got a little sloppy and I get it if you hate it, but I kinda dig the first two. Well, there it is. The end. This story is over. Please review one last time and keep a look out for any other stories I might do. Thanks again! You guys are epicness!
