Glee fic: Make This Place Our Home - Roderick, Jane, Mason, Madison
A quick reaction fic with our sapling of a Glee club bonding a bit. ~600 words, G.
Roderick’s not quite sure how it happens, but he ends up on the sidelines at the Homecoming bonfire with Jane. He has his headphones down, but he’d really be more comfortable with them on, the level of noise and people is overwhelming. He can’t help flinching at some of the loud noises.
“So, you’re Roderick, huh?” He hears, and realises Jane is talking to him.
He tries to smile and does an awkward wave, “Yeah, I am. And you’re Jane?” He hates how much that sounds like a question, she’ll just think he’s forgotten him name already.
Instead, she smiles brightly, “Well, I’m new here, so I’m going to need some friends.”
A prickle of awkwardness runs up his spine, “Well, I’m sort of the bottom of the social pyramid here; I haven’t made any friends yet.”
He is shocked to hear a sudden noise, and turns to see Mason and Madison standing there making the sound of screeching brakes along with a mime. “Hey, didn’t we just sing together?” Mason says.
