I Won't Give Up
"I'm not going to stand around and watch you ruin your life by marrying Finn Hudson!"
Quinn's words echos in the room as she stares at Rachel. It was too much. Everything was too much. Why did she think that Rachel would come to her senses and call off this wedding? Quinn was at the end of her tether. She couldn't let Rachel go through with this.
But Rachel was just standing there staring at her with that same stubborn look. The look that said "I can hear you but I'm not listening."
"Why can't you just be happy for me?" Rachel says softly and Quinn's heart breaks a little more. "I thought you were my friend."
"I am your friend," Quinn assures her. "And as your friend, I refuse to let you make the biggest mistake of your life. You are so much more than this, Rachel." She takes a step forward trying to reach her. Trying but always failing. "Why can't you see that?" She manages to hold Rachel's gaze. And then Quinn sees it. That tiny flicker in Rachel's eyes and she breathes a sigh of relief.
But just as quickly, Rachel looks down and takes a deep breath of her own. "Quinn, I think you should leave."
Quinn takes a step back as if someone shoved her. "What?"
"If you can't support me and my marriage to Finn, you can't come to my wedding."
"Please leave, the other girls need their fitting done." And she turns her back to Quinn.
Quinn swallows, not quite sure of what to do. She makes her way to the door and turns to Rachel one last time. Rachel can see her through the reflection of the mirror.
"You're the one person who never gave up on me, Rachel," she says so quietly that Rachel almost didn't hear her. "Don't think for a second I'll ever give up on you."
With one final look, Quinn opens the door and leaves.
