Glee: The Next Generation Season 2, Episode #7: "Yee-Haw"Edit

So here’s what you missed on Glee: The Next Generation:

Hallie asked for one week to make her decision between Lana and Bella and time’s just about up. Who is she gonna choose? Breezy has eyes for newly single womanizer Miles but she’s been hurt in the past, which was her biggest fear about dating in the first place. James hasn’t been himself. He’s been dressing like James Dean, hanging with Aldy’s friends, and partaking in some potentially dangerous activities. Jaxon’s worried about him because after all, he really does love him. India’s been up to no good. She’s got big plans to sabotage Lana from possibly joining New Directions in the future to be closer to Hallie. Speaking of Lana, rumors are she got expelled from her old school, but no one knows why, but the speculation is bugging Lana. And meanwhile, Nicole and Dillon got back together but now Nicole has a secret admirer. What is she gonna do?

And that’s what you missed on Glee!

India smiled to herself as she walked down the hall, handing out flyers. Bella took notice, uneasy about what India could be up to now.

“Hey Bella, would you like a flyer?” India asked, shoving a flyer towards Bella.

“What is this about?” Bella asked, uneasily taking the flyer.

“Read it,” India said.

Bella looked down at the flyer and began to read it. “Students, beware. There is a dangerous criminal in your midst. Lana Addison was expelled from her last school for starting a riot and trying to get them to attack the principal. You aren’t safe. Petition to have her removed from McKinley. India, what the hell?”

“I have you to thank. You helped me find out what school she used to go to and that she was expelled,” India replied.

“I did that so maybe you could find out the truth and stop spreading vicious rumors. I never planned for you to do this.”

“Well, the truth is she did cause a riot and she was expelled. The rest I made up, but who cares? The resulting petition will get her thrown out of here so fast her head will spin.”

Bella crumpled up the flyer and threw it in a nearby trashcan. “You are a horrible person. When everyone finds out what you’ve done--”

“They won’t be finding out what I’ve done,” India said with a sly smile. “This is all on you.”

“What are you saying?” Bella asked.

“I signed into the school computers using your name and password. This document is saved to your school account. It was printed off under your name. Everything traces back to you. I’m just the poor, innocent girl you coerced and or possibly blackmailed into helping you.”

Bella narrowed her eyes. “You are an evil bitch.”

“That’s what you get for befriending my enemies, Bella,” India said. “I thought you were smarter than that. I know you and Lana don’t still hate each other. I saw her take that slushie for you. I heard your little talk about faking the mash-ups assignment. Lana is trying to take Hallie from you and you should hate her as much as I do. I thought we were allies in this and you proved me wrong.”

“That’s the thing, India,” Bella said. “No matter how much we have in common, I could never align myself with you.”

Jaxon sighed as he walked into the choir room and took his seat besides James. James looked over, smiled, and took Jaxon’s hand. Will smiled as he walked into the choir room and looked at everyone.

“Hey, guys,” Will said.

“Hello, Mr. Schue,” they said in unison.

“As you know, Sectionals is next week and I want us to work on finding something unique to do. Country music is a very underappreciated genre that has a lot of good songs we could do.”

“Country is so lame,” Evan said. “It’s all a bunch of people with thick accents whining about they’re alcoholics, their wife died, their husband cheated, and their dog ran away. It’s depressing.”

Aldy rolled his eyes. “That’s kind of offensive.”

Evan sighed. “You’re missing my point.”

“R&B can be the same way,” Aldy said. “Just with pianos instead of banjos.”

“Guys, let’s not argue,” Will said. “We’re doing country week this week. And Evan, we’ll work in an R&B week before Regionals.”

“Thanks, Mr. Schue,” Evan said.

Will walked over to the dry erase board.

YEE-HAW

“No other word better captures the spirit of country music. So, your assignment this week, find a country music song that speaks to you and perform it in Glee Club. Then, we'll work on picking out a group number that will become a contender for Sectionals.”

“Sounds awesome,” Hallie said.

“So how was everyone’s Halloween?” Will asked.

“It was good,” James said. “I rolled a few lawns, egged a few people.”

“Yeah, bro,” Aldy said, bumping knuckles with James. “It was epic.”

Jaxon rolled his eyes. “I took my little brother trick or treating and nearly got ran over by some fools in a Mustang.”

“Sorry,” Aldy said. “I didn’t know that was you.”

“So you would have ran over a complete stranger?” Jaxon asked.

“I took Eva and Ethan trick or treating,” Hallie said. “They were so cute and got a lot of candy. I got to eat most of it because they can’t. And I’ve been planning my fundraiser.”

Bella looked at Hallie, a small smile crossing her face.

____________________________________________________________

Hallie smiled as she stuck her landing. She took a moment to catch her breath.

“Great job, guys,” Hallie said. “We’ll win Cheerleading Sectionals for sure.”

Hallie looked to her left and saw Lana and Miles walking toward her. She smiled, her eyes lighting up.

“Give me a second, guys,” Hallie said, jogging off to meet Lana.

“Hey,” Lana said. “The week is up so that means I can interfere now.”

Hallie laughed. “Yea, it does.”

“Miles said that you guys are doing a country music week so I thought I should sing my feelings in form of a country song.”

Hallie smiled. “You never cease to amaze me.”

“Jaxon’s in position,” Miles said.

“What position?” Hallie asked.

Lana pointed up to the announcer’s box. Jaxon waved.

“You ready, Miles?” Lana asked.

Miles nodded. “Ready to go, Lana.”

Lana gave Jaxon a signal and Taylor Swift’s “You Belong With Me” began to play over the loudspeakers. Hallie blushed as she looked down for a second.

“You're on the phone with your girlfriend, she's upset,” Lana sang. “She's going off about something that you said 'cause she doesn't get your humor like I do. I'm in my room, it's a typical Tuesday night. I'm listening to the kind of music she doesn't like. She'll never know your story like I do. But she wears short skirts, I wear t-shirts. You’re cheer captain and I'm on the bleachers. Dreaming about the day when you wake up and find that what you're looking for has been here the whole time.”

The Cheerios looked at one another and on Rose’s signal, they began to dance around Lana, Miles, and Hallie. India stood off to the side, her arms grossed and a glare on her face.

“If you could see that I'm the one who understands you,”Lana and Miles sang. “Been here all along so why can't you see you belong with me? You belong with me.”

“Walking the streets with you and your worn out jeans,”Lana sang. “I can't help thinking this is how it ought to be. Laughing on a park bench, thinking to myself, ‘hey, isn't this easy?’ And you've got a smile that could light up this whole town. I haven't seen it in a while since she brought you down. You say you're fine, I know you better than that. Hey, what you doing with a girl like that? She wears high heels, I wear sneakers. You’re cheer captain and I'm on the bleachers. Dreaming about the day when you wake up and find that what you're looking for has been here the whole time.”

“If you could see that I'm the one who understands you,”Lana and Miles sang. “Been here all along so why can't you see you belong with me? You belong with me.”

“Oh, I remember you were driving to my house in the middle of the night,” Lana sang. “I'm the one who makes you laugh when you know you're about to cry. I know your favorite songs, and you tell me about your dreams. Think I know where you belong, think I know it's with me. Can't you see that I'm the one who understands you? Been here all along, so why can't you see you belong with me?”

“Standing by you, waiting at your backdoor,” Lana and Miles sang. “All this time how could you not know, baby, you belong with me? You belong with me.”

“You belong with me,” Lana sang. “Have you ever thought just maybe you belong with me? You belong with me.”

Hallie laughed. “That was just perfect, but I’m confused. Why are you singing it too, Miles?”

“Cuz you’re one of the few girls I don’t stand a chance with. Nah, I’m just kidding. I’m here to support Lana.”

“I really hope you consider that, Hallie. I mean every word,” Lana said.

“I know,” Hallie said, stepping forward.

Hallie leaned into toward Lana, pressing her lips gently to hers. Lana was surprised at first, but didn’t pull away. Hallie finally broke the kiss and smiled.

“God, this is so hot,” Miles said.

“I thought that you said two kisses isn’t an accident?” Lana asked, confused.

“Exactly,” Hallie said as she walked away to rejoin the Cheerios.

India glared at Lana, thinking about her next move.

____________________________________________________________

Lana walked briskly through the halls, feeling as she was on cloud nine. She didn’t notice all the looks, the glares, the utter sense of repulsion that had permeated the halls.

“That’s the riot girl,” a pretty blonde whispered to her friend.

“The one who got expelled from Thurston High School,” her friend added.

Lana looked bewildered.

Has my secret been outed? If so, there is only one person to blame. India Wilson. It seems like something she would do. How did she find out?

“I heard that she started a riot, convinced them they were zombies and tried to get them to eat the principal,” a boy said.

“That’s not true,” Lana said. “Do you realize how dumb you sound even saying that?”

Jaxon appeared beside Lana, clutching a piece of paper. He handed it to Lana.

“Think you should see this,” Jaxon said.

Lana grabbed the paper and began to read it. She looked shocked.

“This is what this is all about,” Lana said. “India did this.”

Jaxon shook his head. “I had Nicole look into it. It was done by Bella. Her school computer account was used to create and print this.”

“Bella? Why would she do that to me? We settled all our problems.”

“I don’t know,” Jaxon said. “I just know what I saw with my own eyes.”

“I’m fixing to handle this,” Lana said. “I guess she’s mad about the kiss Hallie and I just shared. I’m sure India told her.”

“These flyers have been floating around since this morning,” Jaxon said. “Wait a minute. What?! You kissed Hallie again?”

“Actually, she kissed me.”

“God, I’m so out of the loop,” Jaxon mused.

“I’ll see you later, okay?” Lana asked as she took off down the hallway.

Jaxon sighed as he tossed the flyer into a trashcan. His attitude didn’t improve upon seeing James walking toward him, flanked by Aldy and Taylor.

“Hey, Jaxon,” Aldy said.

“Hey, Jaxon replied, not too enthused.

“I will see you guys later,” James said to Taylor.

Taylor smiled at Jaxon. “Bye, cutie.”

Jaxon rolled his eyes as Aldy and Taylor left.

“Decided to ditch the Thunderbirds?” Jaxon asked.

“Lighten up,” James said. “You’re way too harsh on them.”

“I just don’t like what they are turning you into, James.”

James cracked his neck as he opened his locker and took out a pack of cigarettes and stuffed them into his jacket pocket. Jaxon’s eyes widened.

“Oh, so now you’re smoking, too?” Jaxon asked.

“Deal with it, babe,” James said.

Jaxon rolled his eyes as James leaned forward and kissed Jaxon. Jaxon pulled away as soon as the kiss was broken.

“You taste like an ashtray, James.”

“How after school, how about we find some place to go where we can go and be romantic and intimate,” James whispered in Jaxon’s ear.

“Not right now,” Jaxon said. “I don’t like how you’re behaving.”

“Then screw you!” James said, storming off.

Jaxon sighed, leaning up against his locker and burying his face in his hands.

____________________________________________________________

Hallie stood in the middle of the choir room, feeling uneasy. She looked at Bella for a second before she adjusted the microphone stand.

“Um, as I promised, I would make my decision after one week,” Hallie said. “Well, time’s up and I’ve made my decision. Bella, this song is for you.”

Hallie nodded at the band and they began to play.

“Every time I turn the conversation to something deeper than the weather, I can feel you always shutting down,”Hallie sang, watching to gauge Bella’s reaction. “And when I need an explanation for the silence, you just tell me you don't wanna talk about it now. What you're not saying is coming in loud and clear. We're at a crossroads here.”

Bella lowered her heart, her heart sinking.

“If I'm not the one thing you can't stand to lose. If I'm not that arrow to the heart of you. If you don't get drunk on my kiss. If you think you can do better than this, then I guess we're done, let's not drag this on. Consider me gone. With you I've always been wide open, like a window or an ocean. There is nothing I've ever tried to hide. So when you leave me not knowing where you're going. I start thinking that we're looking, we're looking at goodbye. How about a strong shot of honesty? Don't you owe that to me? If I'm not the one thing you can't stand to lose. If I'm not that arrow to the heart of you. If you don't get drunk on my kiss. If you think you can do better than this, then I guess we're done, let's not drag this on. Consider me gone.”

Hallie fought back tears as she sang, watching Bella, who was also trying to stay strong.

“Consider me a memory, consider me the past. Consider me a smile in an old photograph. Someone who used to make you laugh. If I'm not the one thing you can't stand to lose. If I'm not that arrow to the heart of you. If you don't get drunk on my kiss. If you think you can do better than this, then I guess we're done, let's not drag this on. Consider me gone.”

Hallie put the microphone back into the stand and walked over to hug Bella.

“Bella, I’m sorry, Hallie said. “You’re my best friend. I just think that spark isn’t there anymore. We confused our strong feelings of friendship for love. I hope we can still be friends.”

Bella nodded. “We made a promise as kids to always be friends. I’m never going back on that promise. You deserve to be happy. And Lana is a great girl.”

“Then why did you do that to her?” Jaxon asked.

“Do what?” Bella asked.

“The flyers you handed out, petitioning to get Lana kicked out of McKinley,” Nicole said.

“I didn’t do that, I swear. I helped India find out were Lana went to school because I was hoping she would find out the truth and stop spreading all those vicious rumors. I had no idea she would do that. Or that she would frame me for it. She hacked into my account, you guys have to believe me.”

“That does sound like something India would do,” Will said.

“But why?” Lucas asked.

“Because she’s mean,” Bella answered.

____________________________________________________________

Bella walked down the hallway, zoned in on India, who stood at her locker. Jaxon, Nicole, and Rose walked behind her. Jaxon had his guitar in hand and Nicole had her violin. Jaxon and Nicole began to play their instruments as Rose clapped and sang backing vocals with the other two.

“You, with your words like knives and swords and weapons that you use against me,” Bella sang to India, circling her. “You have knocked me off my feet again, got me feeling like I'm nothing. You, with your voice like nails on a chalkboard calling me out when I'm wounded. You, picking on the weaker man. Well you can take me down with just one single blow but you don't know, what you don't know. Someday I'll be living in a big ol' city and all you're ever gonna be is mean. Someday I'll be big enough so you can't hit me and all you're ever gonna be is mean. Why you gotta be so mean?”

India rolled her eyes, threw her head back, and started to walk away.

“You, with your switching sides and your wildfire lies and your humiliation,” Bella sang, following India. “You have pointed out my flaws again as if I don't already see them. I walk with my head down trying to block you out 'cause I'll never impress you. I just wanna feel okay again. I bet you got pushed around. Somebody made you cold, but the cycle ends right now cause you can't lead me down that road and you don't know, what you don't know. Someday I'll be living in a big ol' city and all you're ever gonna be is mean. Someday I'll be big enough so you can't hit me and all you're ever gonna be is mean. Why you gotta be so mean? And I can see you years from now in a bar, talking over a football game with that same big loud opinion but nobody's listening. Washed up and ranting about the same old bitter things. Drunk and grumbling on about how I can't sing but all you are is mean. All you are is mean and a liar, and pathetic, and alone in life and mean, and mean, and mean, and mean. But someday I'll be living in a big ol' city and all you're ever gonna be is mean, yeah. Someday I'll be big enough so you can't hit me and all you're ever gonna be is mean Why you gotta be so? Someday I'll be living in a big ol' city. Why you gotta be so? And all you're ever gonna be is mean, yeah. Why you gotta be so? Someday I'll be big enough so you can't hit me. Why you gotta be so? And all you're ever gonna be is mean.Why you gotta be so mean?”

“What the crap is this about?” India asked, whipping around to face Bella and her friends.

“About how you framed me,” Bella replied.

“You have no proof,” India said with a smile.

“You think that everyone is gonna believe you over Bella?” Nicole asked. “You have quite a track record when it comes to doing mean things at this school. You’re always the first suspect. The student body is like an angry lynch mob ready to burn you at the stake for the slightest thing just because most likely, it was you who did it. Face it, you have a bad reputation, India, and it’s one that is well deserved.”

“You all hate me,” India said.

“Because you always treat us like dirt,” Jaxon said. “You were nice for half a school year and as soon as your popularity was in the crapper, you threw us all under the bus again, betrayed us, and used us. I don’t hate you, but I’m very disappointed in you.”

“Well, you see,” India said. “Come Sectionals, you’ll see who the real person to be hated will be.”

India turned around and stormed off.

“What does that mean?” Rose asked.

“I’m scared to find out,” Bella said.

____________________________________________________________

James stood on stage, surrounded by simulated fire. He was dressed in an vintage t-shirt, torn blue jeans, motorcycle jacket, and motorcycle boots.

Jaxon shook his head in disbelief. “James, James, James.”

“I'm waiting on the sun to set cause yesterday ain’t over yet,” James sang. “I started smoking cigarettes there's nothing else to do I guess. Dusty roads ain’t made for walking, spinning tires ain’t made for stopping. I'm giving up on love cause love's given up on me. I gave it everything I had and everything I got was bad. Life aint hard but it's too long to live it like some country song. Trade the truth in for a lie, cheating really ain’t a crime.”

“You don’t reckon he cheated, do you?” Honey asked Jaxon.

Jaxon shook his head. “I don’t think James would do something like that. He did start smoking, though.”

“I'm giving up on love cause love's given up on me,” James sang. “Forget your high society, I'm soaking it in Kerosene. Light 'em up and watch them burn, teach them what they need to learn, ha! Dirty hands ain’t made for shaking, ain’t a rule that ain’t worth breaking. Well I'm giving up on love cause love's given up on me. Now I don't hate the one who left. You can't hate someone who's dead. He's out there holding on to someone, I'm holding up my smoking gun. I'll find somewhere to lay my blame the day he changes his last name. Well I'm giving up on love ‘cause love's given up on me. Well I'm giving up on love, hey, love's given up on me.”

Aldy stood up and applauded. “Way to go, bro. Badass, song.”

“Jeez,” Jaxon said to Aldy. “Why do you keep having to encourage this behavior out of him?”

“He’s happy, Jaxon. Let him be happy for once.”

“I try very hard to let him be happy, Aldy. Have you any idea what’s he been through? I’ve been the one person there for him through it all.”

“Including when you cheated on him?” Aldy asked.

“That’s in the past, Aldy.”

“Doesn’t mean it still doesn’t hurt.”

“I’ve done everything I can to make it up to him, to be there for him. I would give my life for James,” Jaxon said, standing up to Aldy, getting in his face. “You still feel so big and bad now, huh?”

Aldy stared Jaxon down. “Bring it, QB. Think I’m scared?”

Jaxon clenched his fists. “It’s taking all I have not to punch you.”

Aldy pushed Jaxon, sending him backwards. Jaxon got up and started after Aldy but Miles and Evan grabbed him, holding him back. Seeing that Aldy was going after Jaxon, Kevin and Lucas grabbed Aldy.

“Enough!” Will said, getting between them. “Aldy, go to the principal’s office! Jaxon, you too!”

“He pushed me,” Jaxon said.

“I don’t care, you started it. Now go!”

Jaxon glared at Aldy as he walked out the door.

____________________________________________________________

The next afternoon, Nicole looked around the lunchroom, sizing up all of the guys. Honey and Rose sat on one side of her, Lana and Breezy on the other.

“It’s not Jaxon or James,” Lana said. “They’re gay and taken.”

“Evan and Lucas are taken,” Honey added.

“Miles is single and a known womanizer,” Rose suggested. Breezy rolled her eyes.

“I’ve never been on Miles’ radar until India dolled me up like Barbie,” Nicole responded. “And now that I’m back to normal, I’m pretty sure I’m once again safely off his radar.”

“The issue is, we’re playing ‘The Usual Suspects’ here,” Rose said. “It’s most likely gonna be someone who we would never suspect.”

“Well that makes things easier,” Breezy said. “How about that reporter guy?”

Nicole shivered. “Eww. No, just no.”

“How about Adam?” Honey asked, watching Adam carry his tray to a distant table.

“Adam’s gay, isn’t he?” Nicole asked.

“To be honest, I don’t even know,” Lana said.

“Maybe he’s just one of those sweet, feminine straight guys,” Rose said. “Or he’s bi?”

“Maybe it’s kind of rude to label him,” Breezy said. “Just a thought.”

“Hey,” Jaxon said, joining the group at the table.

“How did your visit to Principal Figgins go?” Honey asked, licking the yogurt off her soon.

“Two weeks detention and luckily I talked him out of suspending us from Sectionals,” Jaxon said, setting his books down and taking a seat. “What’s up?”

“We’re trying to decide who Nicole’s secret admirer might be,” Lana said.

“Aren’t you and Dillon still dating?” Jaxon asked.

“Excuse my curiosity,” Nicole joked. “Besides, when a girl is admired, she’d like to know who by.”

“I say it’s Adam,” Honey said. “But they think he’s gay.”

“He’s not gay,” Jaxon said. “He does not register on my super accurate gaydar. But you know who does?”

“Who?” Nicole and Rose asked at the same time.

Jaxon grabbed his books and stood up. “Wouldn’t you guys like to know?”

Jaxon chuckled as he walked away, leaving the girls to gossip over the possibilities.

____________________________________________________________

Jaxon sat on a stool in the middle of the choir room as the music began to play. He looked directly at James as he began to sing.

“Love takes the patience of Job, that's what my Mama always said,” Jaxon sang. “Faith is the belief in something more than what you know, that's what the good book says. You gotta play the cards you got. Who knows what fate is holding? At times you gotta go without knowing where you're going. That's why I keep on lovin' you, I keep on lovin' you. Through the baby-don't-leave-mes, and never-will-agains, and I-promise-tos, I keep on lovin' you.”

Jaxon closed his eyes and in his mind, he was transported to the stage in the April Rhodes Civic Pavilion, sitting on a stool in the spotlight.

“Lord knows we've had our share of fights, our sleepless nights, our ups and downs. We've had plenty and then some of baby-I'm-gones and turnarounds. Sometimes I swear it might be easier to throw in the towel. Someday we're gonna look back and say look at us now.”

James stood in the aisles, watching Jaxon pour his heart out on stage, a tear rolling down his cheek.

“That's why I keep on lovin' you, I keep on lovin' you. Through the baby-don't-leave-mes, and never-will-agains, and I-promise-tos. I keep on lovin' you, keep on lovin' you. Through the I-take-it-backs, I-didn't-mean-it-like-that’s, I'd-never-hurt-yous, oh, I keep on lovin' you.”

Jaxon opened his eyes and was back in the choir room, looking into the eyes of his true love.

“I keep on lovin' you, I keep on lovin' you. Through the baby-don't-leave-mes, and never-will-agains, and I-promise-tos. I keep on lovin' you, I keep on lovin' you. Through the I-take-it-backs, I-didn't-mean-it-like-that’s, I'd-never-hurt-yous, oh, I keep on lovin' you. I keep on lovin' you, I keep on lovin' you.”

James wiped a tear from his eyes as he got up and walked over to Jaxon. He threw his arms around Jaxon, holding him tightly.

“I’m so sorry for the things I said,” James said. “I never wanna lose you. You are the greatest thing that has ever happened to me.”

Jaxon wrapped his arms around James. “I will never leave you. I will never forsake you or let you down. I will always be here to catch you when you fall, no matter what. I promise you that.”

Honey smiled as she got up and walked over and joined the hug. “I love you, my almost brother.”

Sue paced back and forth in front of the Femme Fatales, megaphone in hand.

“As you know, we’re short a few members to qualify for Sectionals,” Sue said. “So the rest of the Femme Fatales will be comprised of some of my Cheerios. I may or may not have blackmailed them to join. You have no proof.”

Karina and Jennifer traded a confused glance.

“New Directions is going to be a tough adversary, but I am confident I can beat them. I lost to them at Regionals years before because I tried to tailor my performance around the judges. I was far too easy on them. But not this year ladies, and Biebs,” Sue added, looking at Adam. “This year, Sue Sylvester is gonna give them hell. You’re gonna live up to your name, Femme Fatales. Now, into position and let’s see what you got.”

Lana, Natasha, and India took the three microphone stands in the front as the rest of the Femme Fatales stood in the back.

“I'm hell on heels, say what you will,” the Femme Fatales sang. “I done made the devil a deal.”

“He made me pretty,”Natasha sang.

“He made me smart,” Lana sang.

“And I'm gonna break me a million hearts,” India sang.

“I'm hell on heels,” the Femme Fatales sang. “Baby, I'm coming for you.”

“This diamond ring on my hand's the only good thing that came from that woman,” Natasha sang. “Got a G.T.O. from one named Jo and a big piece of land down in Mexico. I'm hell on heels, baby, I'm coming for you.”

“I got a pink guitar, a Lincoln town car from ol' what's her name I met at a bar,” Lana sang. “Got a high rise flat in Hollywood from a married gal, wasn't up to no good. I'm hell on heels, baby, I'm coming for you.”

“Then there's Jim, I almost forgot I ran him off but I took the yacht,” India sang. “Poor ol' Billy, bless his heart, I'm still using his credit card. I'm hell on heels. Sugar daddy, I'm coming for you.”

“I'm hell on heels, say what you will,” the Femme Fatales sang. “I done made the devil a deal.”

“He made me pretty,”Natasha sang.

“He made me smart,” Lana sang.

“And I'm gonna break me a million hearts,” India sang.

“I'm hell on heels,” the Femme Fatales sang. “Baby, I'm coming for you.”

“I'm hell on heels, say what you will,” the Femme Fatales sang. “I done made the devil a deal.”

“He made me pretty,”Natasha sang.

“He made me smart,” Lana sang.

“And I'm gonna break me a million hearts,” India sang.

“I'm hell on heels,” the Femme Fatales sang. “New Directions, we’re coming for you.”

As the lights went down and the Femme Fatales felt motionless, Sue smiled, confident that New Directions had met their match.

____________________________________________________________

Hallie stood outside McKinley, handing out balloons to passing kids, a huge smile on her face. As Lana, Jaxon, James, Nicole, Honey, and Rose approached, her face lit up.

“Hello guys,” Hallie said. “Thanks for coming out to support the fundraiser. Ever since what Mr. Schue did at the Halloween festival last year, I thought it would be a great idea to have an annual fundraiser in the fall to raise money for charities.”

“You’ve done an excellent job,” Lana said, hugging Hallie. “It looks wonderful.”

“Yeah if only we could get India in the dunking booth,” Hallie said with a laugh, handing a small boy a balloon.

“So, is your family here?” Lana asked, looking around.

“Yeah, my mom took Eva and Ethan to get their faces painted by Coach Beiste. You guys want a drink? We have hot apple cider and cold tea.”

“Some cider, please,” Jaxon said.

“I’m good,” Lana said.

Hallie poured Jaxon a cup of cider and handed it to him. He eagerly took a sip and smiled.

“This is really good,” Jaxon said.

“Thank you,” Hallie said.

Bella walked over to join her friends, hugging Jaxon.

“Glad you guys made it,” Bella said.

“We just made like a hundred dollars over at the dunking booth,” a blonde teenage boy said, appearing at Hallie’s side. “Everyone wants to dunk Coach Sylvester!”

Bella watched the boy, unable to take her eyes off him.

His eyes, that smile, Bella thought.

“Hey Lana,” the boy said.

“Hey, Reece,” Lana said, giving a half-hearted wave.

“You two know each other?” Hallie asked, looking at Reece, then back at Lana.

“Lana used to go to my school,” Reece said. “Thurston High.”

Lana looked uncomfortable. Jaxon looked at Lana, raising an eyebrow.

“The one you got expelled from?” Bella asked.

“Yes, I got expelled,” Lana said. “But it wasn’t for the reasons everyone said. Thurston is a really homophobic school.”

“Was,” Reece corrected. “We just got a new principal and things have changed.”

“Anyway,” Lana continued. “A kid was gay bashed when I was there and he was put into a coma. The kid who did it got off with hardly anything. He didn’t even get charged with a hate crime. So, I protested and the principal felt I was an instigator. We didn’t see eye to eye on policies and I got expelled for so-called mutiny.”

“That’s horrible,” Rose said.

“It is,” Reece said.

“Are you homophobic?” Jaxon asked, crossing his arms.

“No, I’m not,” Reece said. “Hallie and I were close growing up and besides, that kid who got put in the coma, he was one of my best friends. He’s just now walking again.”

“I’m sorry,” Jaxon said.

“Hey guys,” Hallie’s mom said, walking up, Eva and Ethan in her arms. “Just in time to get your faces painted.”

“Hey Aunt Miranda,” Reece said. “Let me take one of them. You’ve got your hands full.”

“Such a sweet boy,” Miranda said, handing over Eva. “I’ll see you kids around. Ethan needs to potty. Come on, big boy.”

“Potty training,” Hallie said, with a sigh. “Fun, fun , fun.”

“The whole situation with your friend sounds like my friend, Lucas,” Rose said.

“Did you know Chad is getting out soon?” Jaxon said. “It makes me mad. Lucas gets bruised organs, internal bleeding, and broken ribs and he gets off without charged with a hate crime He serves seven months and then released back into society. That’s it.”

“That’s the system for you,” Hallie said.

“Guys, it was nice meeting you, but I’m going to take Eva to the moon bounce. See you later. Nice seeing you again, Lana.”

“What’s he doing here?” Lana asked. “Seems like a little ways away from Thurston.”

“His parents are going through a lot and just can’t deal with trying to keep him right now so he’s staying with us,” Hallie said. “We have no idea how long for, so he’s still attending Thurston High in case it’s just a short time.”

Bella watched Reece as he walked away.

“Hey guys,” Evan said, walking with Lucas and up to Hallie. “Hope we made it in time.”

“There goes India,” James said. “We should get her. We’re out of school, so they can’t do anything about it. This is a freebie.

“That’s the first thing you’ve said since you started this bad boy phase that I agree with,” Jaxon said.

“What do you have in mind?” Nicole asked.

James pointed over at the slushie kiosk with a big smile on his face. Honey smiled in return.

“I like what you’re thinking,” Honey said.

“Righteous,” Evan said.

India shoved her change into her purse and pulled on the handmade bracelet that had caught her eye. She smiled as she held her hand out and admired it.

“India,” Evan said. “You look thirsty.”

India turned around, her hand on her hips. “I’m fine, thank you.”

India screamed as a multicolored swirl of slushie flew straight toward her face. The entire crowd stopped what they were doing and looked at India. India furiously wiped slush off her face, glaring at the perpetrators.

“You are all so dead!” India fumed. “You’ll regret the day you messed with India Ariella Wilson! I will make you wish you had never been born!”

India turned angrily around and started to storm off, but her heel sunk into soft dirt and she fell forward. Everyone laughed as India struggled to get up, grass sticking to her.

“Now,” Lana said. “We’re even.”

The next day, Breezy stood in the choir room, surrounded by New Directions. She mouthed a few words to the band and smiled at Miles as the music began.

“Got my eyes on a boy, he's eyeing me back,” Breezy sang. “It's lookin' real good, this could be it. And I know that all of you girls would love to steal him away.”

As Breezy sang the last line, she glared at Lana, who looked confused.

“He bought me a drink I thanked him real sweet. It's always so nice when you first meet. And I know that all of you women would love to steal him away. So I'm warning you. Better keep your hands off my, better keep your hands off my, better keep your hands off my potential new boyfriend. Building up an appetite you can look but you can't bite. Better keep your hands off my potential new boyfriend.”

Lana looked at Miles, then at Hallie, mouthing someone no one could quite make out.

“Pretty as a picture, coming on so strong. He's twisted my ignition key, turned my motor on. Anyone can see all his attention's on me ,give us some privacy. Better keep your hands off my, better keep your hands off my, better keep your hands off my potential new boyfriend. Better keep your hands off my, it’s a welcome time to try. Better keep your hands off my potential new boyfriend. Leave us alone tonight, if it don't work out right, he's all yours. But till then better keep your hands off my, better keep your hands off my, better keep your hands off my potential new boyfriend. I feel you crowding in on me hovering suspiciously. Better keep your hands off my potential new boyfriend. Better keep your hands off my, better keep your hands off my, better keep your hands off my potential new boyfriend. Building up an appetite you can look but you can't bite. Better keep your hands off my potential new boyfriend. Better keep your hands off my, better keep your hands off my, better keep your hands off my potential new boyfriend.”

“Okay,” Lana said. “First thing, why am I here in New Directions? I’m a Femme Fatale.”

“Because Breezy requested you be here and I would also like to talk to you,” Will said.

“Second thing, do you think there is something going on between me and Miles?” Lana asked. “Are you daft?”

“You’re a girl and Miles is obviously attached at the hip to you,” Breezy said.

“But I’m a lesbian,” Lana said. “And I’m dating Hallie now. Or did you miss that whole thing?”

“You could bisexual,” Breezy said.

“Oh god no I couldn’t,” Lana said, turning her nose up in disgust.

“If you’re done, can I talk to you guys now?” Will asked, his hands on his hips. “Look, I saw what you guys did to India.”

“To be fair,” Aldy said. “Kevin, Miles, and I were not in on that.”

“Then ignore me,” Will said. “Look, I’m so disappointed in you. You guys know how humiliating and all the experience of being slushied is and still, you did that to India. She used to be one of us, and still kinda of is.”

“But, Mr. Schue,” Honey said. “She’s been really mean and vicious here lately. He tried to petition to get Lana thrown out, she broke up Nicole and Dillon, and she tried to frame Bella.”

“Still,” Will said. “Did you have to sink to her level? I have never been so disappointed in my life. This is not what we’re about. I want a promise here and now. No New Directions member will never slushie another person. Ever. You break it, you’re out of New Directions. We will not become the very people who bully us. Got it?”

Everyone nodded silently.

Bella banged the gavel. “I now call this meeting of the Celibacy Club to order. Please welcome our new member, Lana Addison.”

Lana waved, feeling a bit uncomfortable. “Look, I may be a lady lover, but I’m one of those people who won't ‘do it’ unless I am in love with that girl.”

Honey nodded. “I had sex with Declan. But we’re madly in love. I’m still in the club because I feel sex should only be with someone you are totally in love with.”

“I’m glad you feel that way,” Rose said, taking Kevin’s hand. “Kevin and I made an attempt last year to lose our virginity. Ultimately, we decided we weren’t ready. But now, we’re both seventeen and a whole lot more mature. We think we’re ready.”

“This is a big step,” Bella said.

“It could change your life forever,” Hallie added.

“I know,” Kevin said. “But we think we’re ready. We’re so in love, we wanna take the next step.”

“I caution you to think about what you’re deciding to do,” Nicole said. “Rose, you’re my best friend, I just don’t want you to regret what you’re doing.”

“We’ll be careful. We took Sex Ed, Nicole,” Rose said. “As far as regrets go, I have none with Kevin. He’s my true love.”

Nicole nodded. “If you’re sure. Just be careful? Use protection.”

Rose nodded as he hugged Nicole.

New Directions stood on stage, wearing the same outfits New Directions had worn at their first Invitationals with April Rhodes. Will had dug them out, dusted them off, and washed them. They fit like gloves.

“Down a back road,” Miles sang. “Long, hot summer, a couple kids running loose and wild. He kissed her, she said mister, take an inch and I'll give you a mile.”

“I ain't here to do anything half-way,” Miles, Bella, Nicole, and Jaxon sang. “Don't give a damn what anyone might say. I just wanna free fall for a while.”

“That rebel moon is shining,” New Directions sang. “Those stars burn like diamonds. Hell bent on chasing down that crazy spark. I'll follow you where you're leading, to the first sweet taste of freedom. You got me running baby, wild at heart.”

“About midnight, he tells her,” Kevin sang. “I ain't got no come-on lines.”

“Well I love you, or I'll try to,” Rose sang. “We got nothing to lose but time.”

“Stick your hand into my back pocket,” Kevin sang. “Light me up like a bottle rocket.”

“I just wanna free fall for a while,” Hallie sang.

“That rebel moon is shining,” New Directions sang. “Those stars burn like diamonds. Hell bent on chasing down that crazy spark. I'll follow you where you're leading, to the first sweet taste of freedom. You got me running baby, wild at heart.”

“O-oh, alright,” Hallie sang. “Tonight is telling us we're way too young.”

“O-oh, that's alright,” Miles sang. “I've got forever on the tip of my tongue.”

“That rebel moon is shining,” New Directions sang. “Those stars burn like diamonds. Hell bent on chasing down that crazy spark. I'll follow you where you're leading, to the first sweet taste of freedom. You got me running baby, wild at heart.”

“That rebel moon is shining,” New Directions sang. “Those stars burn like diamonds. Hell bent on chasing down that crazy spark. I'll follow you where you're leading, to the first sweet taste of freedom. You got me running baby, wild at heart. O-oh, alright.”

Will rose from his seat in the auditorium, clapping. “I think we have another Sectionals contender. Great job, guys.”

New Directions laughed amongst themselves as they hugged one another. Will looked on, both happy and proud.

Hallie looked up and toward the door. Lana stepped forward and closed the door. Hallie smiled as she left the group and walked down the steps to join Lana. Lana took Hallie’s hand and they walked hand in hand toward the exit.
