____________________________________________________________

My name is India Wilson and I’m from Chelsea, West London, England. I have no idea why I’m in this hole-in-the-wall school in this little Podunk town, USA. To be honest, as conceited as it sounds, I’m too good to be here. I’m rich. I could buy any of these kids’ houses if I wanted. But why would I even want them? I don’t even wanna be here. But, if I’m stuck, I might as well make the most of it.

I guess that this school needs a new Queen Bee and I’m just the girl to make it happen. I’m the girl that whenever she walks down the hall, every head turns. But I don’t acknowledge them. They should be looking at me. It’s the least they can do in the presence of my greatness.

I got money. I got the looks. I make straight A’s. I have the talent. I am the only fitting candidate for Queen Bee. But see, that’s not a title you earn or even get handed to you. You have to reach out and take it.

I’m a girl who is used to getting what she wants, one way or the other.

Principal Figgins handed the paperwork to India.

“Looks like everything is in order, Miss Wilson. Welcome to McKinley High. You may go see Ms. Pillsbury in her office and she will give you your schedule.”

“Thanks,” India said, not very sincerely. “Can I go now?”

Principal Figgins nodded. “Yes, you may.”

I slung my backpack over my shoulder and tossed my hair. My mission to become the Queen Bee would require a lot of work. First, I needed a popular guy to get a little cozy with. I’d date him to build my reputation and popularity up a bit then dump him flat on his face.

That’s when I saw him. He was dressed nice. He definitely had the money. And he looked good except for the hideous scar over his eye. So what? He wasn’t the best looking. I just need to leech off his popularity for a little while. Just until I could build up my own and then it was over. Despite his obvious flaw, he seemed to be very popular judging from the size of the crowd of people surrounding him. I needed to get closer to him, feel him out a bit. Figure out how to win him over.

“I’ll see you in Glee Club,” Miles said as he gave five to Jaxon.

The other boy was tall, blonde, and seemed to be a straight up fruitcake.

“Bye, Miles,” Jaxon said as he walked off.

Glee Club, huh? Could this be a three-for-the-price-of-one? Glee Club could get me closer to Miles, allow me to showcase my undeniable talent, and possibly give me a popularity boost. Okay, it was settled. I would figure out how to audition for Glee Club and set my plan into action.

“Excuse me,” India said in a very pronounced British accent. “I couldn’t help but notice you talking about Glee Club. Where could I possibly audition?”

“Actually, auditions ended Thursday afternoon, but maybe you could talk to Mr. Schuester.”

“Where might I be able to find him?” India asked, batting her eyes.

“He teaches Spanish as well so you can try the Spanish classroom or the choir room.”

“I have no idea where that is,” India said coyly. “Could you maybe show me?”

“I would but I’m meeting someone here. Actually, just go down the second corridor on your right when enter the main hallway. The Spanish classroom is the third door on your left.”

“Thanks,” India said, not at all happy that her plan had been ruined.

That had NOT went the way I planned, which really ticked me off because I’m the type of girl who always gets her way. Obviously, Miles was a tougher cookie. I’d have to turn up the heat to break him.

And turn up the heat was exactly what I was about to do.

________________________________________________________

Miles waited patiently for Bella to show up. Finally, after what seemed like forever, she appeared.

“Hey,” she said with a smile.

“You made it,” Miles said.

“I had to help Hallie with something this morning and it made me run late.”

“We’ve gotten to know each other really well, Bella. And we’ve hung out a lot…so, I was wondering if maybe you wanted to go out with me?”

“We’ve went out plenty of times, Miles,” Bella said.

“I mean like, do you wanna be my girlfriend?”

Bella bit her bottom lip apprehensively. “I don’t know, Miles. You’re a great friend.”

“But that’s all I’ll ever be, right?”

“I’m just really confused right now, Miles. I mean, yes, I do have feelings for you. But I’d be lying if I said that I didn’t also have feelings for Hallie. Right now, I don’t know what I’m looking for…guy, girl, friends, love. I just don’t know.”

“Oh. I understand,” Miles said, his spirit sinking a little bit.

“Miles, I don’t wanna hurt you, believe me. I just need some time to think it over.”

________________________________________________________

India opened the door to the Spanish classroom and walked in. Will was grading papers. He looked up, trying to figure out of he knew the girl.

“Excuse me,” he said. “Can I help you.”

“The question is, can I help you,” India said.

Will raised an eyebrow and pushed his papers aside. “Is that so? What’s your angle? What do you want?”

“I hear that you run the Glee Club.”

“And you want in? Sorry but auditions ended yesterday--”

“I can pay you,” India offered.

“Your money is of no interest to me. However, if you’re talented enough, I might consider letting you in. I have the thirteen members I need, but the more the merrier…if you can sing.”

“Please, I can sing.”

“Excuse me for having my doubts, but you remind me of a student who once tried to join New Directions. Her name was Sugar Motta and she was terrible. Her singing was so bad, I’m still going to therapy.”

“The way I see it, I’m a Godsend to your Glee Club.”

Will raised an eyebrow and crossed his arms. “That confidence could be a gift. But it could just as easily be a curse. Let’s hear what you got. See if you can walk the walk after talking the talk.”

India smiled. “Oh, I can.”

India looked to the back of the room and saw a dusty purple piano. She pointed to it.

“May I tickle the old ivories?”

Will nodded. “Be my guest.”

India walked over to the piano cracked her knuckles. She began to play Vanessa Carlton’s “A Thousand Miles.”

“Making my way downtown,” India sang softly and beautifully as she played in time. “Walking fast, faces pass and I’m homebound. Staring blankly ahead, just making my way, making my way through the crowd. And I need you. And I miss you. And I wonder. If I could fall into the sky, do you think time would pass me by? ’Cause you know I’d walk a thousand miles if I could just see you tonight.”

India stopped playing and looked up at Will, who smiled.

“You play beautifully. And you sing beautifully, too,” he said.

“I’m classically trained with both my voice and the piano.”

“It shows. We could use your talent and training.”

“So, what will it be, Mr. Schuester?”

Will nodded. “Okay. You’re in. The first meeting for you will be this afternoon. Show up or you’re out.”

India smiled mischievously. “Oh, I will Mr. Schuester. Thank you.”

So, I had managed to weasel my way into Glee Club. McKinley High had no idea just what would be in store for them.

Jaxon sighed as he shut his locker. He started to walk toward his classroom, but stopped dead in his tracks when he saw James standing there.

“Hey,” James said.

“Hi,” Jaxon said, smiling shyly.

“You wanna cut class? Head down to the auditorium?”

Jaxon raised an eyebrow. “Why?”

James stuck his hands in his pockets and shrugged. “If I told you, it wouldn’t be a surprise.”

“What makes you think I like surprises?” Jaxon asked.

“Just do it. Please. For me.”

“Okay,” Jaxon said. “But do you know how much trouble we’d be in if we got caught?”

James smiled. “We’re not gonna get caught.”

________________________________________________________

James held the door open for Jaxon. They both walked in and took a look around. James took Jaxon’s hand, much to Jaxon’s surprise, and led him down to the stage.

“I know you believe that I think I’m better than you or that I think I’m cooler than everyone,” James said.

“What makes you say that?” Jaxon asked.

“I heard you singing ‘Cooler Than Me’ right before Azimio slushied you. It doesn’t take a genius to know who you were singing it about.”

Jaxon blushed. “You heard, huh?”

“Jaxon, your pipes are hard to ignore,” James said with a laugh.

“I’m sorry.”

“Don’t be. The truth is, I really like you, too. I’m just afraid. So I don’t always know how to act around you. That’s all.”

“I thought you were out?” Jaxon asked.

“I am. It’s not about my sexuality. It’s just that I’ve only dated one other guy and I was head over heels for him, but he really hurt me. And I’m so scared of letting anyone else in. I’m afraid of being hurt again.”

“I didn’t know,” Jaxon said.

“His name is Archie Carmichael. He was in Vocal Adrenaline with me. He’s now their main soloist since I transferred.”

“I’m not like other guys,” Jaxon said.

“I know. That’s why I asked you here. Since you sang a song for me, I thought maybe I could sing one for you.”

“You didn’t have to do that,” Jaxon said, blushing.

James handed some music to Brad, who was seated at the piano.

“Don’t worry,” he said. “Brad won’t tell on us. He never talks.”

Jaxon chuckled. “Okay.”

“Remember, Jaxon. I mean every word of it.”

The curtain came up, revealing a couple of James’s friends from the school band. One had a saxophone in his hand and the other sat at a drum set. Jaxon looked a little puzzled.

“I’ve never been good with sharing my feelings,” James said as he walked up onstage. “Thankfully, I found a song by one of my idols, Madonna, that says everything perfectly for me.”

“All this for me?” Jaxon asked, in awe as the music began to play.

“Swaying room as the music starts,” James sang. “Strangers making the most of the dark. Two by two their bodies become one. I see you through the smoky air. Can't you feel the weight of my stare? You're so close but still a world away. What I'm dying to say, is that I'm crazy for you. Touch me once and you'll know it's true. I never wanted anyone like this, it's all brand new. You'll feel it in my kiss. I'm crazy for you.”

James took Jaxon’s hand and pulled him up the steps and onto the stage. The lights dimmed around them as James led Jaxon over to the microphone. The spotlight came on and shined down on the two of them. James held onto Jaxon’s hand as he grabbed the microphone stand with the other.

“Trying hard to control my heart, I walk over to where you are. Eye to eye we need no words at all. Slowly now we begin to move. Every breath I'm deeper into you. Soon we two are standing still in time. If you read my mind, you'll see that I'm crazy for you. Touch me once and you'll know it's true. I never wanted anyone like this, it's all brand new. You'll feel it in my kiss. I'm crazy for you. It's all brand new, I'm crazy for you. And you know it's true. I'm crazy, crazy for you.”

Jaxon stood there, unable to move as James leaned in for a kiss. He was taken aback at first, but soon relented, kissing him back. James gently cupped Jaxon’s cheek before breaking the kiss.

“Wow,” Jaxon said.

James smiled. “That was amazing.”

The two of them looked up, startled as the auditorium door opened and Will walked in, looking not very pleased.

“Busted,” Jaxon whispered.

“You two are supposed to be in class,” Will said. “Figgins is looking everywhere for you. You’re lucky I found you first because I’m gonna cover for you. But don’t pull something like this again. you hear me?”

“Yes, sir,” James said.

“We won’t,” Jaxon answered.

“The two of you can make it up to me by coming to my newly reinstated Booty Camp after school for the rest of the week. You both could use the help. And your song, which I could hear in the hallway and led me to you, has inspired me. I’m making this week 80’s week in Glee Club. Now get to class and I’ll cover for you with Figgins and your teacher.”

“Thanks, Mr. Schue,” Jaxon said.

“Like I said, you’re both very lucky.”

________________________________________________________

Hallie sat silently in Emma’s office, staring blankly ahead.

“Do you have anything you want to talk about?” Emma asked her.

Hallie shook her head.

“High school can be difficult for teenage girls. All the pressures and hassles of being a girl. I know it must get you down.”

“I’m alright,” Hallie answered.

“My job is to help you if you need it or want it.”

“I’m fine,” Hallie said, a little more assertive.

“Well, you know where to find me if you want to talk or need any help. There are some pamphlets by the door. Some of them may be of help if you’re not ready to talk to me just yet.”

“Thanks, Ms. Pillsbury” Hallie said as she got up and walked toward the door. She glanced over at one of the pamphlets. One caught her eye. So You Are An Unwed Teenage Mother. She thought about grabbing it, but ultimately kept walking.

Bella saw Hallie rushing from Emma’s office. She picked up her pace, catching up with her.

“What’s wrong?” Bella asked. “You practically burned rubber out of there.”

“I think they know,” Hallie said.

“Know what?”

“About Eva and Ethan. She knew something and kept trying to get me to talk.”

“Maybe it would help to talk to someone other than me,” Bella said.

Hallie shook her head. “No. I can’t. I’m not ready for everyone to know. I’ll be called the school slut and I’m not ready for that label.”

“You’re not a slut. Hallie, you were raped. People would understand that.”

“I’m not ready to deal with this. I can’t face this again. Not right now.”

Hallie raised her arm and wiped her tears with the sleeve of her sweater.

“It must be hard raising two babies on your own,” Bella said.

“I’m a lesbian with twin babies. You have any idea how difficult that is? Most girls won’t even go out with me again after they find out. You can imagine how differently everyone else would treat me afterwards.”

“You can’t hide it forever, Hallie. The truth will come out eventually.”

Hallie nodded. “And I’ll cross that bridge when I get to it. But I’m not ready right now. I already had to transfer schools just to get away from all the whispers and the stares. My number was on the stalls with ‘for a good time call Hallie’ written above it. Nuns ‘prayed’ for me and told me to repent. They tried to get me to put my children up for adoption. They called me a jezebel. I will not go through that again!”

Bella sighed. “Hallie, you won’t No one in Glee Club is like that.”

Hallie shook her head. “I’ve been in Glee Club for all of a few days. I don’t know what any of them are capable of.”

Will took out his dry erase marker and walked over to the board. He scribbled on it and stepped aside. The 80’s

“The eighties was a great era for music. Perhaps even the best to many people, myself included. I would like to thank James for this idea. He was my inspiration. Your assignment: I want everyone to pick a song from the 80’s and perform it. You can do it solo, as a duet, or as a group. I’ve also chose a song which I found very fitting for you all to perform as a group. ‘We Built This City’ by a little group named Starship, also formerly Jefferson Starship and Jefferson Airplane. You guys will perform it in two days, so you have a little while to work on it in addition to your own songs.”

Evan raised his hand. Will pointed to him.

“So like, we can perform any song from the eighties, right? Even like a song from a movie? And we can perform it as a group?”

Will nodded. “Yep. As long as it’s from the eighties.”

“You know what I’m thinking?” Evan asked?

The Goonies!” Lucas and John exclaimed in unison, giving each other a high five.

“That’s fine,” Will said. “I’m glad to see you excited about the lesson plan. I was hoping that it would inspire you guys before heading into Invitationals. Which, by the way, Invitationals is not a competition. It is a showcase. However, it is mandatory in order to qualify for Sectionals and thus Regionals and Nationals. And you can bet that there will be people from Vocal Adrenaline, The Warblers, and Aural Intensity as well as our other competition there to see how good we are. So, we have to bring our ‘A’ game. Which reminds me, we have some Glee Club business to discuss.”

“Who won ‘The Battle of the Sexes?’ Do you know?” Breezy asked.

“As a matter of fact, I do,” Will said. “I just finished counting the votes during free period this morning. And the winner is…drum roll please!”

Evan began drumming on the empty seat next to him.

“With twice as many votes as the competition,” Will continued. “The girls! Great job, ladies!”

“What?” John exclaimed. “We rocked!”

“Sorry,” Honey said. “That’s how the cookie crumbles.”

“I wanna crumble her cookie,” Nicole whispered to Rose. Rose chuckled.

“Now ladies, I want you to decide on a song for you to perform at Invitationals. I want you to take a couple of days to think it over before you decide. Make sure that it’s what you really want and can agree on before making the decision. Also, I’d like to bring in our newest member. I know we already have all thirteen members we need, but I have never turned away someone who was really talented. This girl is classically trained and can play piano, so she’ll be an asset. Come on in, India.”

India walked in the door and flipped her hair as she started walking past all the boys. Their mouths dropped open.

“You can sit beside me,” Honey said.

“Don’t talk to me unless I talk to you first,” India said icily as she begrudgingly took a seat beside Honey.

“I think I’m in love,” Evan said. Will rolled his eyes.

“Okay guys, I’m also gonna be reinstating my Booty Camp after school every day. I saw your dancing at ‘The Battle of the Sexes’ and you all could use some work. We can’t show any flaws or weaknesses at Invitationals or our competition will be training to exploit them.”

“So now we have Glee Club after school, Booty Camp, and football practice?” John asked. “That’s a lot, Mr. Schue.”

“It’s okay. I promised Coach Beiste to have you guys finished by 5pm for your training,” Will replied. “Your first Booty Camp will be tomorrow. Be there, all of you.”

________________________________________________________

India stood in the door of Sue Sylvester’s office. Sue looked up from her journal.

“Do you have an appointment?” Sue asked.

“No. I want to be a Cheerio. I was a cheerleader at my old school in West London.”

“And you think that makes you good enough to be a Cheerio?”

“I’m rich. Allowing me onto the Cheerios promises you a much bigger cheerleading budget. I did some research and I heard that since Coach Beiste has started here, your budget has been drastically cut. My parents can restore the Cheerio’s former budget…and then some. You can return the Cheerios to their former glory, Coach Sylvester.”

Sue smiled. “I like your way of thinking, Romania.”

“India,” she corrected.

“Welcome aboard.”

________________________________________________________

The next day at Glee Club, Jaxon was ready to perform his 80’s song. He was in full on glam gear, dressed up to look just like the leader singer of Dead or Alive. He adjusted his eye patch before walking into the choir room, a portable disco ball in hand.

“Woah,” Honey said. “Jaxon, you look amazing!”

“What the hell are you supposed to be?” John asked.

“Pete Burns, the lead singer of Dead or Alive. It’s what I’m performing today. Most of you may not know this song, but it’s the song that Flo Rida ripped off for his hit, ‘Right Round’ featuring Kesha. ”

Will looked Jaxon’s outfit over. “Very impressed that you took the next step and dressed up for your performance.”

“Ready, Mr. Schue?” Jaxon asked.

Will nodded. “Go ahead.”

“James will be doing backing vocals,” Jaxon said as James got up and joined him.

Jaxon walked over and turned off the lights. He sat the disco ball on top of the piano and turned it on. The choir room was filled with spinning flashes of light. Jaxon gave the band their cue and took his place.

“Yeah I, I get to know your name,” Jaxon sang, grabbing the microphone and dipping it forward slightly. “Well, and I could trace your private number baby. All I know is that to me, you look like you're lots of fun. Open up your lovin' arms, I want some.”

“Want some,” James sang.

“Well I, I set my sights on you,” Jaxon sang.

“And no one else will do,” sang James. “And I, I've got to have my way now, baby.” “And no one else will do.” “And I, I've got to have my way now, baby. All I know is that to me, you look like you're havin' fun. Open up your lovin' arms. Watch out, here I come.”

“I want your love, I want your love,” James sang.

“You spin me right 'round, baby, right 'round. Like a record, baby, right 'round, 'round, 'round. You spin me right 'round, baby, right 'round. Like a record, baby, right 'round, 'round, 'round.”

“I want your love,” James sang.

“You spin me right 'round, baby, right 'round. Like a record, baby, right 'round, 'round, 'round. You spin me right 'round, baby, right 'round. Like a record, baby, right 'round, 'round, 'round.”

The music ended and the choir room erupted with cheers. Bella and Miles stood up and gave a standing ovation. India rolled her eyes, unimpressed.

“Very good, guys,” Will said. “Who’s next?”

Breezy stood up. “Me, Nicole, and Rose have been working on a song, Mr. Schuester. ‘Shake Your Love’ by Debbie Gibson. We found that she was totally relatable and her bubblegum pop was quite infectious.”

“Plus, the girl had style,” Rose said.

“Alright, ladies,” Will said. “Take it away.”

“Take what away?” Kevin asked.

Will looked puzzled. “Hmm. Déjà vu.”

“Shake your love,” all three girls sang. “I just can’t shake your love. Shake your love. I just can’t shake, your love. Shake your love. I just can’t shake, shake your love. I just can’t shake your love.”

“I'm under a spell again,” Breezy sang. “Boy, I'm wondering why. This is not a game of love, but an emotional tie. I'm trying to figure out my heart. But I can’t offer you proof of why we should never be apart. And that is the, that is the truth.”

“Shake your love. I just can’t shake your love. Shake your love. I just can’t shake, your love. Shake your love. I just can’t shake, shake your love. I just can’t shake your love.”

Do you know why I stop and stare?” Nicole sang. “And smile when you walk by? And how I call you up at night, I hang up the phone and I cry. If I never got to know you so well, maybe I would be fine. Baby, you know that I can’t tell. Why you should be, you should be mine.”

“Shake your love. I just can’t shake your love. Shake your love. I just can’t shake, your love. Shake your love. I just can’t shake, shake your love. I just can’t shake your love.”

“Ooh, I know what you're thinking,” Rose sang. “I see it in your eyes. You want to give our love another try. I'm so glad you realized I can't shake your love. I just cant shake your love.”

“Shake your love. I just can’t shake your love. Shake your love. I just can’t shake, your love. Shake your love. I just can’t shake, shake your love. I just can’t shake your love.”

The auditorium burst into applause as Will stood up from his seat.

“Excellent work, girls. Great chemistry.”

“Not as great as James and Jaxon’s chemistry,” India said. “Must be something going on there.”

“Why don’t you butt out, Ice Queen?” James asked.

Jaxon grabbed James’ shoulder. “It isn’t worth it, James.”

“Enough, everyone,” Will said. “Let’s get down to the auditorium for Booty Camp, alright?”

Everyone groaned.

________________________________________________________

No one in Glee Club was happy right now. The look on everyone’s faces confirmed that much.

“Five, six, seven, eight!” Will exclaimed.

Nicole went to do a pirouette and fell right on her butt. Rose helped her back up.

‘This is whack, Mr. Schue,” Evan said.

“Guys, enough. You all need help with your dancing or everyone at Invitationals is gonna see your weakness. If that happens, you can kiss a victory at Sectionals goodbye. Now, back into position!”

“I’m not gonna do this!” India exclaimed.

Will put his hands on his hips and glared at India. “You don’t have a choice. Guys, we’ll never win if we don’t apply ourselves. You all have a lot of work to do. I said, back into positions. Now!”

India exhaled. “So lame.”

“Five, six, seven, eight,” Will counted.

________________________________________________________

The next day, Jaxon and James slowly entered the auditorium.

“I have achy muscles that I didn’t know could ache,” James said.

Jaxon stuck his tongue out. “Blech.”

“These Booty Camp sessions are murder,” James added.

“Is it true?” Bella asked as she approached James and Jaxon.

“Is what true?” Jaxon asked.

“The whole school is buzzing about how you two are the hot new item.”

“What?” James asked. “We just made it official. How could the whole school know?”

India stood up from her seat. “Oh, come on. Like it wasn’t obvious. You two reeked of sexual chemistry during your performance of that horrendous eighties’ song.”

“You told?” Jaxon asked, raising an eyebrow.

“I didn’t have anything else better to do,” India said with a smirk.

James balled his fists up, his nostrils flaring. Jaxon grabbed him.

“Don’t let her get to you,” he said.

“It wasn’t her business to tell. I may be openly gay, but that doesn’t mean I make a point of going around announcing my relationships to everyone.”

“What the hell, man?” Evan asked as he approached James. “What do you think you’re doing stealing my man?”

“Excuse me?” Jaxon asked, repulsed. “Not even! No, never!”

“Jaxon doesn’t like you,” James said,

“Piece of Vocal Adrenaline trash,” Evan said, angry. “Go back to Carmel so we can kick your ass during Regionals.”

“Hey!” Jaxon said. “Lay off, Evan!”

“What is going on here?” Bella asked, confused.

“Somewhere between the choir room and the auditorium, we managed to find the deep end and went completely off it,” James replied.

Evan glared at James. “He’ll come running to me, Face it, I’m way hotter.”

“It’s not all about looks,” Jaxon retorted.

Evan shook his head. “Obviously. What do you even see in that former Vocal Adrenaline jerk?”

“He’s not a jerk,” Jaxon asserted.

“Everyone from Vocal Adrenaline is a jerk. They’re trained to think they’re better than everyone else.”

“Well, I’m not like that, obviously,” James replied. “I transferred away from that place.”

“Just watch your back, Holland,” Evan said as he glared at James.

Seeing how heated it was getting, Bella safely retreated and took her place on stage.

“Whatever the problem is put it aside,” Will said, appearing between Evan and James, “In Glee Club, we’re a family. I expect to see you two acting like brothers when you perform or it’s detention for you both.”

“He started it,” James protested.

“I don’t care who started it! We are a team! We are a family! Act like it! All our hard work is starting to unravel and it will cost us everything! This week has been nothing but bickering and laziness! That will not get New Directions another national title. It won’t even get us through Sectionals! Now suck it up, put your problems aside, and get out there and perform this song like a team. No ifs, ands, or buts! Got it?”

“Yes, Mr. Schue,” James answered.

Evan nodded silently.

“Places!” Will shouted.

Evan, James, and Jaxon reluctantly took their places as the music began.

“We built this city,” New Directions sang. “We built this city on rock and roll. Built this city. We built this city on rock and roll.”

“Say you don't know me,” John sang. “Well, recognize my face. Say you don't care who goes to that kind of place. Knee deep in the hoop-la, sinking in your fight. Too many runaways eating up the night.”

“Marconi plays the mamba,” Kevin and Hallie sang together. “Listen to the radio. Don't you remember?”

“We built this city,” Kevin sang. “We built this city on rock 'n' roll.” “We built this city. We built this city on rock and roll. Built this city. We built this city on rock and roll.”

“Someone's always playing corporation games,” sang India. “Who cares they're always changing corporation names.”

“We just want to dance here but someone stole the stage,” Honey sang.

“They call us irresponsible,” Evan and India sang. “Write us off the page." "Marconi plays the mamba. Listen to the radio.”

“It's just another Sunday in a tired old street,” Evan sang. “The police have got choke hold and we just lost the beat. Who counts the money underneath the bar? Who rides the wrecking ball into our guitars?”

“Don't tell us you need us," Honey sang.

“’Cause we're the ship of fools,” John and Honey sang. “Looking for America crawling through your schools.”

“Don't you remember?” Kevin and Hallie sang. “Marconi plays the mamba.” “Listen to the radio,” Hallie sang.

“We built this city. We built this city on rock and roll. Built this city. We built this city on rock and roll.”

The music came to an end and Will looked impressed.

“Good job guys. You gotta do that again at Invitationals if you wanna intimidate our future competition.”

“We’re seriously not gonna do this song, are we?” Rose asked.

“No offense, Mr. Schue, but it’s kind of really old fashioned,” Breezy added.

“I have something a little more modern and upbeat for you guys to perform as your entire group number at Invitationals, but I will not reveal it until Monday.”

“Thank God,” Nicole said. “This song is good, but it’s not gonna intimidate our competition.”

“I chose this song to remind you guys of what you all have built so you won’t let personal conflicts tear it down. Sometimes music has a lesson to be learned.”

“Mr. Schue?” Evan asked, raising his hand. “I would like for my group to perform our eighties’ song now. It has recently kinda taken on a new meaning and I can’t wait to share it with the club.”

“The stage is all yours, Evan,” Will replied.

Evan nodded at the band, who began to play Cyndi Lauper’s “The Goonies ‘R’ Good Enough.” John and Lucas joined Evan in the front of the stage. Evan tossed them their headset microphones. They put them on their head, adjusted them, and turned them on.

Evan looked at James and Jaxon. “Note the sarcasm.”

Will rolled his eyes.

“Here we are hanging on to strains of greed and blues,” Evan sang as he looked Jaxon in the eyes. “Break the chain, then we break down. Oh, it’s not real if you don’t feel it. Unspoken expectations, ideals you used to play with. They’ve finally taken shape for us.”

“What’s good enough for you, is good enough for me,” Evan, John, and Lucas sang. “It’s good enough, it’s good enough for me. Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah.” “Now you say you’re starting to feel,” John sang. “The push and pull of what could be and never can. You mirror me stumbling through those old fashioned superstitions. I find too hard to break. Oh, maybe you’re out of place.”

“What’s good enough for you, is good enough for me. It’s good enough, it’s good enough for me. Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah. Good enough for you is good enough for me. It’s good, good enough, it’s good enough for me.”

“Old fashioned superstitions, I find too hard to break,” Lucas sang. “Oh, maybe you’re out of place.”

“What’s good enough for you, is good enough for me. It’s good enough, it’s good enough for me. Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah. Good enough for you is good enough for me. It’s good, good enough, it’s good enough for me.”

“Wo-wo-woah,” Lucas vocalized. “Ah ha. Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah.”

Jaxon shook his head in disbelief as James considered whether or not to be offended. The rest of New Directions stood up and applauded.

James stopped by Jaxon’s locker as Jaxon was getting his books. Jaxon looked up and smiled.

“You have a habit of surprising me,” Jaxon noted.

James smiled. “I’m full of surprises. I was wondering if you would do me honor of coming by my house tonight. My parents will be out, therefore we will be all alone. We can maybe watch a movie and I will cook a romantic candlelight dinner for us.”

Jaxon smiled, impressed. “I would be honored. Six o’clock be alright?”

“Perfect,” James said, placing a kiss on Jaxon’s cheek.

“Aww,” Jaxon said.

“I just slipped a piece of paper in your pocket,” James said. “It’s got my address.”

Jaxon smiled to himself as James walked off, unable to believe he had such an amazing boyfriend. He was the kind you always dreamed about but never managed to find. And yet, he found him.

“I am so lucky,” Jaxon said with a smile.

As Bella started to walk away from her locker, Miles caught up with her. He grabbed her books out of her arms.

“Let me carry those. A gentleman always carries the books for a girl.”

Bella smiled. “Why thank you, gentleman.”

“I was wondering if maybe I could come over this afternoon and we could talk. About what’s going on in our lives, ourselves, each other. I mean. we’re both going through a lot and you’re really confused and maybe we can work it all out. Or at least try.”

“Okay,” Bella said. “But be there no later than 6. My mom gets home at eight and she’ll freak if she knows I had a boy over.”

Miles nodded. “Okay, then. You know, Bella, I just want you to know that whoever or whatever you choose in life, I’m still going be your friend. I will support you no matter what.”

“I appreciate that, Miles. You’re not like most guys.”

“I have my moments when I am. I am a guy after all,” Miles said with a smile.

Bella returned the smile. “You’re still light years ahead of the rest of the male species.”

________________________________________________________

Jaxon looked up at the large, fancy house that James lived in. It was practically a mansion. And here we was, this normal All-American boy-next-door with the simple two story house.

The front door opened and James cleared his throat. “Are you stand on my porch all day or are you going to come in?”

Jaxon laughed nervously. “I was just admiring your house.”

“It’s nothing special. Just a big house to me,” James replied.

“It’s amazing.”

James took Jaxon’s hand. “Can I show you my bedroom?”

Jaxon swallowed a nervous lump in his throat. “Yeah, sure.”

James lead Jaxon up the staircase and to his room. It was pretty big. There were posters of bands, singers, and movies all over the walls. The walls were a light bluish grey. The curtains and carpet were a blood red and all the furniture was jet black. All of the Twilight memorabilia pointed to hints at the reason for the color scheme.

“Let me hear your heartbeat,” Jaxon sang. “Let me feel your heartbeat. Let me touch your heartbeat cuz I can change your heartbeat.”

James smiled at Jaxon as they shut the door behind them.

“Children behave, that's what they say when we're together,” Jaxon sang. “And watch how they play, they don't understand. And so we're running just as fast as we can, holding on to one another’s hands. Trying to get away into the night and then you put your arms around me and we tumble to the ground and then you say I think we're alone now, there doesn't seem to be anyone around. I think we're alone now, the beating of our hearts is the only sound. Look at the way we gotta hide what we're doing. Cause what would they say if they ever knew? And so we're running just as fast as we can, holding on to one another’s hands. Trying to get away into the night and then you put your arms around me and we tumble to the ground and then you say I think we're alone now, there doesn't seem to be anyone around. I think we're alone now, the beating of our hearts is the only sound. I think we're alone now, there doesn't seem to be anyone around. I think we're alone now, the beating of our hearts is the only sound.”

James laughed as Jaxon began to do the Tiffany dance. He smiled, so endeared to Jaxon at this moment.

“Running just as fast as we can, holding on to one another hands. Trying to get away into the night and then you put your arms around me and we tumble to the ground and then you say I think we're alone now, there doesn't seem to be anyone around. I think we're alone now, the beating of our hearts is the only sound. I think we're alone now, there doesn't seem to be anyone around. I think we're alone now, the beating of our hearts is the only sound. I think we're alone now, there doesn't seem to be anyone around.

Let me hear your heartbeat. Let me feel your heartbeat. Let me touch your heartbeat cuz I can change your heartbeat.”

James took a seat on the bed. Jaxon followed. James reached up and lifted Jaxon’s head and began to kiss him. After a moment, he broke the kiss.

“I think we should maybe take the next step,” James said.

“I’ve never done this before,” Jaxon replied.

“Me either,” James said. “But they say it should only be with someone you truly love. Jaxon, you are the one for me. I could never love anyone like I love you.”

James leaned back in for a kiss, Jaxon meeting him halfway. Jaxon began to wrestle with the buttons on James’ shirt. James ran his hands up Jaxon’s shirt, feeling his abs.

Then all of a sudden, they both stopped.

“I can’t do this,” they both said.

“I’m too scared,” James said.

“It’s too soon,” Jaxon added.

“I’m sorry, Jaxon.”

“Look, James, I feel like if we do this now, you’ll get hurt. You’re still fragile from how Archie hurt you. I made a promise to you that I’d never hurt you. And I will keep that promise.”

James smiled. “You really do love me.”

“More than you’ll ever know. So, maybe we should stick to letting the only magic we make together be a duet for right now.”

James nodded. “I like that idea.”

________________________________________________________

Miles looked around Bella’s room. It was unnaturally girly. Pink, pink, and more pink. Twilight plastered on every wall. Ponies, Barbies, and Justin Beiber.

“Well, I’m glad we could talk about things,” Bella said.

“Me, too. I mean, I understand how you feel, Bella.”

“I was wondering if you’d join me in a duet?” Bella asked

Miles nodded. “I’d love to.”

Bella walked over to her stereo system and pressed the play button. “Two of Hearts” by Stacey Q began to play.

“I never said I wasn't gonna tell nobody,” Bella sang.

“No baby,” Miles sang.

“But desperate lover, I can't keep it to myself. Oh no.”

“When we're together,” Miles sang. “It's like hot coals in a fire."

“Hot baby,” Bella sang.

“My body's burning so come on heat my desire. Come on, come on.”

“Two of hearts," they sang together. “Two hearts that beat as one. Two of hearts. I need you, I need you. Two of hearts. Two hearts that beat as one. Two of hearts. Come on, come on.”

________________________________________________________

James walked from his dresser to his bed and grabbed Jaxon’s hand and pulled him up. He looked him in the eyes.

"People get jealous cuz we always stay together,” James sang.

Yeah, baby,” sang Jaxon.

“I guess they really want a love like yours and mine.”

“Together forever,” Jaxon sang.

“I never thought that I could ever be this happy.”

“Yeah, baby.” “My prayers were answered, boy you came in the nick of time,” James sang. “Whoa, whoa, whoa.”

“I got this feeling that you're going to stay,” Jaxon sang. “I never knew that it could happen this way. Before I met you I was falling apart. But now at last I really know we're made of.”

“Two of hearts,” they both sang. “Two hearts that beat as one. Two of hearts. I need you, I need you. Two of hearts. Two hearts that beat as one. Two of hearts. Come on, come on.”


Two of hearts,” all four sang in their separate locations. “Two hearts that beat as one. Two of hearts. I need you, I need you. Two of hearts. Two hearts that beat as one. Two of hearts. Come on, come on.”

________________________________________________________

The next morning at school, Jaxon and James held hands as they walked down the hallway.

“Everyone knows anyway,” James said. “Not that I wanted to keep you a secret. I just don’t think our love is anyone’s business but our own.”

“Well, well, well,” Azimio said, appearing. He had two slushies, one red and one pink. “I thought Valentine’s Day should come a little bit early for the new lovebirds. And since pink and red are the colors for Valentine’s Day, I thought I’d get a little festive.”

“Azimio, you don’t have to do this,” James said.

“Yeah, we’re teammates,” Jaxon added.

“Happy Valentine’s Day, loverboys!” Azimio exclaimed as the threw the slushies into James and Jaxon’s faces.
