Remember My Name

The sun was out and shining on that bright Monday morning. The light streamed through the huge waiting room, where almost a hundred kids were sitting down on plastic chairs, nervously glancing at their papers. They were all there to audition for Jean Arts Academy.

Jean Arts Academy, often referred only as JAA was one of the most prestigious performing arts schools in the country. It was started by a woman named Sue Sylvester who was also the Dean of the school. JAA wasn’t a high school and you had to be over eighteen to audition. Every June, the lobby outside the auditorium would be converted into a waiting room, filled with hopeful men and women, all eager to show the school the talent they possessed.

Most were busy rehearsing their dance moves or practicing their scales. Others were strumming their guitars and whispering lyrics to themselves.

Quinn Fabray wasn’t one of them. She was clutching her sheet music in one hand, the other tapping a nervous tattoo on her knee. A blonde boy next to her was playing a small melody on his acoustic guitar, frequently glancing at the clock.

After a few minutes he turned his body and stuck out his hand.

"My name’s Sam Evans."

Quinn smiled, thankful for any distraction and shook his hand. “Quinn Fabray.”

"First time auditioning?" Sam asked.

She nodded and he smiled. “It’s my third. I made it past the first round last year but they wouldn’t let me pass for the third audition. I tried to get in for the past few years but they never accepted me. Hopefully, this time they will.”

Quinn smiled and decided to be asked him something that had been eating away at her. “What’s it like?”

He thought for a bit than answered, “Well, it depends on who’s watching you. Usually it’s only Schuester and Pillsbury, but sometimes Sylvester decides to join and that’s when it gets scary.”

"Was she the blonde women in the video about this place?"

Sam chuckled and nodded. “I know she may seem mean in the video but trust me, she’s much worse in real life. She recognized me from one of my earlier auditions and called me Guppy.

"Guppy?"

"Yeah," Sam replied, pointing to his lips. Quinn hadn’t noticed them before but now saw how large they actually were.

"Oh." Quinn said, smiling.

"It’s alright, I’ve been called worse. So, how old are you?"

Quinn, at first was taken aback by Sam’s friendliness but he quickly grew on her. There was something about him that made her feel at ease.

"Eighteen, you?"

"Twenty one next month. Getting in would be the best birthday present ever. Is this your first time in Ohio?"

Quinn nodded. “I live in Detroit but I’ve always wanted to perform in this auditorium. While most kids wanted to go to New York or LA I wanted to go to Ohio.”

"Well, I’ve lived in here my whole life and it’s pretty boring around most parts. Lima’s the only big town we have and it’s thanks to the school. I mean, the only reason there are ever tourists in Ohio, is because of this place."

Their conversation was cut short when, thin, red-haired women walked out, a clipboard in her hand. She was dressed like a 50’s house wife and her eyes were large, giving the impression that she was always surprised.

"Samuel Evans?" she said, looking around the large room. Sam stood up and waved. He grabbed his guitar and maneuvered his way around the chairs.

"Good luck." Quinn said to her new found friend. He looked over his shoulder and wished her the same.

Quinn went back to listening to her iPod until someone poked her on the shoulder. She turned around to see a scruffy, bohemian looking boy with curly hair was smiling at her. He was wearing sandals and he reminded her of a puppy. His prescription glasses sat at the bridge of his nose as he looked down at his clipboard.

"Quinn Fabray?" he asked. She nodded and he smiled.

"You’re up."

Quinn goes to college in New York. Not because she wants to, or because it’s the best place for her, but because she’s waiting for that moment they bump into each other on the subway or in a coffee shop and start the rest of their lives together.

It looks like they’re skyping. like rachel had twins and took the broadway-loving, outgoing/excitable one with her on a business trip while quinn kept the studious, book-loving, shy one at home with her.

DON’T EVEN SAY THAT.
