44. For all the Gleeks
Lea rushed up on stage nervously. She was about to accept an award and talk about her former fiancé, Cory. He had passed not to long ago, it was still very fresh and painful in her mind. The fans, friends, family and cast members were all super supportive, but it still hurt; Cory was the most special thing to her.
She got up on stage and walked to the microphone, smiling at the massive crowd as she talked. “Thank you, guys. Thank you.” She started, heart pounding, words quick. “I just wanted to be here today to personally thank all of you and tell everyone out there how all your love and support has meant to me; over these very past few difficult weeks.” She continues, smiling and pushing the hair off her shoulder. “Thank you. Not that I had any doubt before, but you guys are most certainly the greatest fans in the world and I wanted to dedicate this award to Cory.” She glances over her shoulder, getting plenty of encouragement to go on, even though her words are fast and she is clearly on the verge of tears. “For all of you out there, who loved and admired Cory as much as I did, I promise, that with your love we will get through this together.” She takes a deep, steadying breathe before continuing her speech. “He was very special to me and also to the world and we were very lucky to witness his incredible talent. His handsome smile. And his beautiful, beautiful heart.” Her breathe is short as she smiles, remembering it all so well. “So, whether you knew him personally, or just as Finn Hudson, Cory reached out and he became a part of all of our hearts and that’s where he’ll stay forever; so thank you guys, so much, thank you.” She finished in a hurry, the tears brimming as she smiled sadly. If she were to look behind her at that moment though, she would see her lost dream. Cory. Right behind her, listening to her heart-warming speech with his own tears. Knowing she was in pain, wishing he could make it better, but knowing he could not. She turned just a second to late, racing off stage with the surfboard and fresh fallen tears.
