General Notes: Skipping ahead a little, Puckleberry found a place and moved in together.
The feeling was insane really. They had signed the papers a while ago and had been slowly but surely moving their stuff in over the past couple of weeks but now they were officially living together. Never had Puck had a relationship as serious as the one he had with Rachel. And that was saying something considering his last ex adopted his kid and the one before that had his kid. Everything felt good, their album was finished and coming out soon, Rachel was doing amazing in her show, they were in love and they were living together. It didn’t get much better than this. It was weird, comparing the life he had now to how he was before Rachel. Since her the tabloids had less shit to dish out about him, he was a part of his daughters life, he drank less and his concerts were more popular. He was just overall happier. She really did bring out the best in him.
Speaking of her, he made his way through the new place and into the kitchen where she was making dinner. Which was perfect because he was starving. Wrapping his arms around her from behind, he smiled and leaned in to kiss her cheek. “Hey baby” he hummed before letting her go and leaning on the counter next to her. “So what’s cooking and how can I help? We have a new kitchen might as well learn to use it a little” he chuckled. He really didn’t know much about cooking. He would most likely still be eating take out all the time if she hadn’t come into his life. Yet another reason he was thankful for having her. “Then we can pop in a movie or something, relax and enjoy our new place” he suggested with a light shrug, hoping she was as pumped about living together as he was.
There were times Rachel missed her old life, hearing Sam’s impressions, having girl time with Kurt and even time with Santana, of course she’d still see them but it wasn’t quite the same any more. There was no popping across the hall and bugging one of them when she wanted company, but her life was different now. Rachel had graduated from college, she’d finished her run in the off Broadway production of Spring Awakening which had not only given her a good friend in the star Jesse St James, but had opened the doorway for her. On top of that her and Puck had done their album and people seemed to know her now. Between work, interviews, graduation and everything else, Rachel still can’t believe they found the time to move in together. And that was thanks to Quinn and her amazing ability at real estate. To Rachel their home was perfect. Huge, but perfect.
Beth had her own room, decorated just how she wanted it, Noah still had his music room and they also had a small studio so they could work on music together or just mess around. There was somewhere for them to work out, space for Rachel to train and practice her dancing. And so much more. Rachel felt guilty that Noah had paid for almost the whole house and everything in it, but he didn’t seem to care, as long as they were together and happy, he didn’t care what things cost. Not that Rachel was greedy, she was good with money and made their house a home without spending insane amounts of money. Right now she found herself in the kitchen, she was taking a week off before getting back to auditioning and everything else and it suited her fine. When he felt his arms around her, Rachel relaxed back against his arms, smiling to herself as she did. “Hey,” she whispered, setting down the knife she’d been using to chop up some salad, then turning so she could kiss him. “We’re having homemade pizza with salad, and I’m doing you some fries too.” Yes, he’d been eating healthier ever since they’d been together, but Rachel never forced her healthy lifestyle on him, hence her cooking him fries, or never stopping him from eating meat or dairy.
The moan that he got out of her brought a grin to his face, she was so hot and she was all his. Soon her whole body was pressed up against his and he couldn’t ask for anything better. “Well I know what I want to eat” he whispered huskily in her ear “but I’ll get you anything you want baby” he added before putting his lips back to hers, getting up from the chair and holding her up to him so he could still keep their lips locked.
He took them through the door and into the sound booth. One, because it was sound proof and this could get loud. And two, because nobody could see them if they walked passed the door. He set Rachel down on the piano, but he was tall enough so he was still standing between her legs. “Fuck I love you” he told her as their make out session began to get much more heated “I can’t wait ‘till we find a place together” he gruffed grabbing the edge of his shirt and peeling it off his body.
A small smile tugged at the edge of her lips as he tugged off his shirts, her eyes taking in his bare chest. How many woman wished they were here? How many wanted to just see him or touch him, they had no idea what it was like being with him. Reaching out she curled her fingers around the loops on his jeans and tugged him forward. “Maybe I should make you wait until we’re married,” she whispered against his lips, “Isn’t that what a good girl would do?” Her hand lowered and she started to stroke him through his jeans, “I could make you wait for everything,” she said softly and pulled her hand back, smirking as she wiggled back from him and knelt on the middle of the piano.
Slowly she shook her head, “Because, Mr Goodfellow, you’re not having me on this piano.” Rachel had her head set on them having sex on his white piano, and no other. She’d wanted that since the first time she’d seen his music room.
Puck grinned and accepted her with open arms as she sat him down on the chair and took a seat in his lap. He chuckled when she mentioned them not having much time and Holly being back soon to catch them, which in her defence was probably all true. But he wanted her. He’d never been this way with any other girl he went out with, but when he wanted her, he wanted her. She was all he thought about sometimes. He figured that was just what love did to a guy. Either way, he didn’t care who walked in.
“Yeah I guess she could be back soon…” he shrugged, licking his lips as he looked into her eyes “or I could always be a generous man and give her an extended lunch break” he smirked, reaching for his phone to send Holly the message. Chuckling, he put his lips back to hers and deepened their kisses. “What can I say? You’re fucking irresistible” he told her putting his hands on her ass so she could feel his growing hard on. He just couldn’t wait until they moved in together.
She couldn’t help but laugh when he reached for his cell and told Holly to take an extended lunch. “You have a one track mind Mr Puckerman,” she said softly and leaned forward to kiss him softly on the lips. “But what about us? What exactly are we going to eat? I don’t think you’d want me to end up starving now would you?”
When he pressed his hands to her ass and pushed her down against him, her eyes went a little wide and she couldn’t stop herself from letting out a soft moan. “Fuck Noah,” she muttered and kissed him hard, her arms wrapping around him as she pressed her whole body against his.
“No you’re not” he told her, shaking his head “I already told you I didn’t want you near him baby” he reminded her, even if she’d argue. “How about I kick his ass, then have my wicked way with you” he smirked “over and over” he added between kisses. Puck knew Rachel wanted him to handle this in a different way, but when it came to his old man he didn’t know if he could keep himself together around him. Things could go violent pretty fast.
He pulled her body closer to his, continuing to kiss her rapidly heating skin. He knew he was getting her going, but he didn’t want to stop. When she mentioned how they could be caught he smirked, “Yeah?” he raised a brow stepping away from her to slowly close the door. Never taking his eyes off her, before making his way back over to her. “I can already see it in the headlines” he said putting his lips back to her neck as their hips pressed against each others “Puck caught making his beautiful girlfriend feel so so good” he teased.
She laughed softly and shook her head, “But it would be more amusing if I kicked his ass. Few men enjoy being brought down to Earth by the opposite sex, but I think you’d enjoy watching men verbally abuse him.” She laughed softly, remembering his reaction when everything went a little sour with Rex. Leaning in she brushed her nose against his, smirking just a little against his lips.
Laughing she shook her head, pushing him back from her until he was sitting in the chair she’d been in moments before he’d walked back into the room. Climbing into his lap she leaned down and pressed her lips against his, her hands pressing flat against his chest as she did. “Do you honestly think we have time? Holly will be back soon and I don’t think she wants to catch us in the throws of passion.”
He knew Rachel would know how to make him feel instantly better the moment he walked in, and that’s exactly what she did. Puck kept his arms around her, holding her close as always as she teased him. “You’re so sexy” he mumbled against her lips. He pulled back a little to lean his forehead against hers, “it was my dad pissing me off, one of those conversations I’d rather forget” he told her, shaking it off. “I’d rather focus on you” he smirked leaning in to kiss her again, teeth grazing her bottom lip.
All he wanted to do was be with his girl, push aside everyone else for now and just spend time with her. He continued to kiss her, wanting nothing more than to surround himself with nothing but her. “I love you baby” he whispered to her as his lips moved down from her jaw to the soft skin on her neck.
She laughed against his lips when he said he’d rather focus on her than the conversation he had with his father. “You should have let me give him a piece of my mind again,” she joked, grinning at him, “It did get you pretty hot last time.” Her fingers curled into the loops of his jeans, tugging him closer to her, “One day I’m going to meet your father face to face and tell him what for, and you’re going to watch, then you’ll drag me home and have your wicked way with me.” Brushing her lips against his, “How good does that sound?”
When he kissed her again, she curled her arms around him, laughing softly as his lips found her neck, hitting that spot she loved so much. “I love you too,” she whispered and pulled back to look into his eyes, “We’re going to get caught!”
Puck looked at his girlfriend through the glass with sad eyes, he wanted to live a life without the stress of his ruined childhood following close behind him. He didn’t even wanna have a conversation with his father, he didn’t want to know what he’d been up to, he didn’t want to have a friendly chat and catch up. No. None of it. He’d adapted since then and if anybody had asked Puck about his father, he’d respond with ‘I never had one.’ He basically wanted the same thing, to meet up somewhere to talk. “Tomorrow night, the hotel I’m staying at has a gourmet restaurant. Bring that girl of yours, she’s a feisty one I like her spunk” his father chuckled and Puck saw red.
“Listen, you’ll be lucky if I show up. But if I do you better fucking believe that I’m showing up alone. You’re never going to even breath the same air as her because she’s too good to even be around people like you” he spat angrily. The conversation ended there. He shoved his phone back into his pocket and his fist hit the wall before he could think. Not hard enough to do any real damage, if it had he’d have paid for it. He took a moment to try and compose himself before making his way back to her and bringing her up from the chair to pull her right back into a searing kiss. He needed her. She could always make him feel better without even trying.
She smiled when he looked at her, and then laid back on the chair with closed eyes. Humming softly she words on one of the songs they’d been recording in her head, figuring out some harmonies in her head. Her fingers tapped against the arms of the chair. Hearing the click of the door, Rachel looked over and smiled at him as he walked over, her eyes sparkling as he stood before her. “Hello handsome” she whispered as he pulled her up and kissed her, a soft whimper coming from her lips as her arms wound around him and she pressed her body against his.
"Who was that?" she asked as she pulled back, her fingers teasing the back of his head, "A new women in your life I should be jealous of?" Pushing herself up on her toes, Rachel brushed her lips against his, teasing his lower lip with her teeth before looking deeply into his eyes with a smile on her face, "Because if it was I’m going to have to remind you just what you’re missing out on when you’re with your fancy lady."
Turns out working with Rachel was a dream come true. They were about two hours in and still laughing and fooling around with each other. Even Holly joked around with them, she was starting to warm up to Rachel believe it or not. She kind of had to, he’d already broken the news that him and Rachel wanted to move in together and she freaked out because she needed the perfect time to release that to the press. They’d recorded a couple of duets, do far just rough drafts that were gonna be edited. He was thinking of putting musical soulmate on there somewhere and probably have Rachel do a track by herself because he really wanted to showcase her voice. He hoped that having her around would let her get used to recording and the kind of work he did. If he was planning on marrying her one day -which he was- then he wanted her to know what his lifestyle was like in and out. Though she was no stranger to the music business, her career was leaning towards Broadway. So they would be united two different worlds.
They were on break for now, most people went out to get lunch but him and Rachel stayed behind. The only thing they had their mouths on were each other. Since both their passions were in music, singing together was pretty intimate when it came to them. Puck had his hands all over her and his lips on hers before the sound of his phone made him groan in irritation. He let it ring a couple of times until he finally took his lips off her, his eyes narrowing and his grin dimming when he saw who it was. His father, like there was anyone worse who could ruin his day. He looked up at his girlfriend before looking back down at the phone and answering as he made his way into the sound booth so she didn’t have to hear him. “Y’know I have a fucking life, you don’t get to call me whenever the hell you feel like it”
This was the first day in a long time that Rachel had the day off from school and didn’t have to go to the theatre until an hour before curtain up, so until then she was all Noah’s. And that was how she found herself in the studio working on their album. With Rex fired, Rachel felt comfortable enough to go back to the studio. Working with Noah was a dream, not only did they get along because they were in love, but he was so easy to work with too, everything they were doing came naturally to them.
Right now they were having a much needed break, which seemed to result in the two of them having a major make out session. Rachel’s arms were around him, her fingers teasing the hair at the back of his head, or at least she was until his cell went off. With a groan she pulled away, licking her swollen lips slowly as he walked out of the room to take the call. Sitting down on a chair, Rachel waited for him, knowing he didn’t want her to hear the conversation.
