Chapter Title: Hummled
Disclaimer: Fox owns the Glee money making machine and RBI came up with the original show idea. Still not mine.
Pairing/Characters: Quinn/Rachel, Santana/Brittany, others mentioned.
When/Where: AU. Post Opening night (by several weeks).
Note: Still AU season 3 (and now 4). I'm finding it harder to do these long form ficlets for this story. This one has too much introspective Quinn in it. Yes, I've fallen behind. I'll try to catch up before NaNoWriMo starts but no promises.
Word Count: 1,307 (3 of ?)

When/Where: AU. The day after V-Day.

"Thanks," Karofksy said gruffly, placing a small vase of wildflowers on her desk.

"For?" Quinn asked, surprised.

"Nigel loved Berry's show last night," he said, happily. "Meeting Nigel's old boss and her girlfriend afterward at the party was a surprise but apparently Berry knows them."

"I'm glad," Quinn said. "Rachel seems to know a lot of people. Her high school craziness really works for her now."

Karofsky snorted. "How did the roommate thing happen anyway?" he asked idly, while putting away his things. "The two of you were like oil and water back in Lima."

Quinn paused for a second, trying to think of a simple way to explain the rather convoluted relationships that connected her life to Rachel's. "It's a little complicated," she said finally. "How much do you remember about me in high school?"

"Cheerleader. Got pregnant. Glee. Hated Rachel," he said. "Had my own issues. Didn't pay too much attention to everyone else."

"Except the bullying," Quinn said.

Karofsky grimaced. "Except the bullying."

"Rachel's mother adopted my baby," Quinn said. "I got to know her after high school. She heard that Rachel needed a roommate, and recommended me. Rachel was desperate and agreed to share an apartment."




Notes: I originally planned for several scenes at the theater with Rachel, Dave, Miranda, Nigel, and Andy but I couldn't make them work. Hence the vague references in #76 and #77

"Are you going to open it?" Karofsky asked, clearly amused. The star encrusted bag had sat on her desk, unopened, for most of lunch. She'd gone down to the break room to grab a soda, but that had been her only concession to hunger.

"Maybe?" Quinn said, looking up from the report she was reading. Being a historian in the city's Public Works department wasn't the most exciting career she could have chosen but it had its moments, documenting things engineers like Karofsky found in the vast underground tunnel system. Sighing, she put down the report and opened the bag.

Quinn carefully removed the contents. A cloth napkin, one of Rachel's carefully guarded pomegranate juice boxes, that she claimed protected her voice from the city smog, and a carefully wrapped sandwich and a note.

"To Microwave," Quinn read, "To Eat Cold."

"She gave you instructions?" Karofsky said, laughing. "What is it?"

"A spicy soy lamb bacon sandwich wrap?" Quinn said, wondering how Rachel had decided on that combination. Unwrapping the sandwich, she put aside half for later. She didn't have time to microwave it. She'd eat it cold.

Quinn moaned as the flavors from the first bite hit her tongue.

"What's that?" Karofsky asked, pointing at the gold star encrusted object on her desk.

"Lunch," Quinn said, making no move to open it in the vain hope it would disappear on its own.

"It has stars on it," he said.

"Yes."

"Gold stars," he muttered, looking down at something on his desk.

"And your point would be?" she asked, glaring at him. She'd been shocked to find herself sharing an office with him, not having seen him since high school, but somehow he'd managed to grow up, losing his anger at the world somewhere along the way.

"High school flashback," he said, grimacing, looking back up.

"Ah," Quinn said. "This flashback wouldn't be a who?" she asked, guessing that Berry's gold stars had been embedded in the memories of a generation of McKinley graduates.

"From Whoville?" he said.

"No, more like an off-Broadway who," Quinn said, trying not to laugh at his comment.

"She's really not bad," Karofsky unexpectedly said.

"You wouldn't be saying that, if you were handed this," Quinn grumbled, poking the bag.

"By who?" Karofsky asked.

"Roommate," Quinn admitted, sighing.

"No!" Karofsky said, laughing, taking out his own lunch.

"Yes," Quinn said, poking the bag again.
