It's a rainy morning in old, new, big, small, dirty, always changing New York City. Kurt comes out of a Coffee shop on the way to school. His phone vibrates.
A text from Mercedes: "Hey qurl, wanna meet up after school? When do you have off?"
As he tries to balance his coffee, hurry to school and answer Mercedes someone bumps into him. He almost shouts "God, could you please look where you walk?" and tries not to be too obvious about the pain of his coffee having landed on his hand, running over it, over the street and over his jacket.
"THIS is a BRAND NEW Hilfiger jacket; I just bought it last day! Look what happened! Ouch! You know what? I don't have time for this, just… just never mind!"
As Kurt tries to storm off dramatically, as he does best, he realizes the guy who bumped into him hasn't said a single word. He's a dark-haired guy using way too much gel, being carelessly colorful in his choice of clothes and has a bowtie on top. God, what Kurt could do for him if he just did a makeover on him.
While Kurt considers the possibilities, what he could change about this boys' outfit he says
"I am so sorry, so sorry. I barely even saw you there; I was just in such a hurry! Could I maybe get you a new cup of coffee or something? Let me make it up to you, I'm usually not like this. This may be New York, but this has neve-",
Kurt interrupts "You know, this is so lovely of you, but I REALLY don't have the time to get a new coffee, wait in line or whatever, I accept the apology, guess I'll have to bring this to the cleaners anyway."
Just as tries to storm off a second time, the dark-haired guy holds Kurt up.
he says and holds a tiny, white card in his hand, offering Kurt to take it
"This is my business card, so if you want me to make it up to you somehow, just give me a call."
Kurt says, takes the card that reads Blaine Anderson on a business card with a bow tie in the one corner with all information one needs to contact him.
"Hum, well, thank you…",
he checks the card again "…Blaine." he then says,
holds the card up as a gesture of thanking him for at least trying, puts the card into his pocket and hurries to school.
This time he drinks the coffee and waits until he is at school before he answers the text of Mercedes.
"I'm off around 2 P.M. Meet you at the coffee shop that is on my way home? I just got to drink half of mine, long story, I'll tell you later! XO"
After school in the coffee shop Kurt sits with his hot Grande non-fat mocha and waits for Mercedes to come around, impatiently he texts her:
"When are you coming? I'm waiting, should I pick up a Grande non-fat mocha for you, too?"
Just as he sends the texts, Mercedes walks by the window and takes out her phone. As she walks in the shop, arms up, ready to hug Kurt, she says
"Oh gurl, what a coincidence! I was just around the corner!"
They hug, and as Mercedes goes over to stand in line, waiting to order her coffee, Kurt comes over and begins to tell her.
"So you know the story that I wanted to talk to you about?"
"Yeah, you said something with only getting to drink half of your coffee or somethin'?" They moved closer to the counter.
"Well yes, so I was just there, getting your text and wanted to multitask. You know I'm actually good at that, even down the streets of New York City instead of Lima, right?" Mercedes nods.
"Yeah, sure I know that, Kurt."
"Okay, alright, because then BAM! This guy walks right into me, he was having one weird taste when it comes to fashion, a color-block on two feet honestly, but he was cute, I could make something out of him. But he walks right into me, coffee all over my hand, the street and my new Hilfiger jacket."
"Oh god, Kurt, I'm SO sorry about that. We'll get it to the cleaners soon."
"Yeah anyway, I ramble away and get really upset, but he wants to make up for it, but I was late so I didn't have time right?" Mercedes nods again,
"So, are you two going on like a date? Do you know if he's playing for your team?"
"Right, I'll get to that, but then he gives me his 'business card', you know contact information so that he might buy me a cup of coffee or make up, you know."
"Oh, oh! I smell a date comin' at you."
"Hey Mercedes", says the guy at the counter
"Oh hi Raquel, you know my usual order?"
"Of course, honey, give me a sec I'll be right back with it."
Mercedes gets the money out of her bag and says
"Kurt, really I think you should give this guy a chance, maybe try to let him make up for it, you know? Maybe have a cute little date." She suggests with a smirk on her lips.
"Oh no, Mercedes! Don't you get it? He was a color-block on two feet! He may have been cute with other clothes but lords, also the amounts of gel or wax or whatever it was he was having up in his hair."
Mercedes gets her coffee and they both sit down.
"Don't be so superficial, Kurt, I've never even seen you like that!"
"I'd rather go out with Raquel than with that guy, here look at his contact information!"
Kurt gives Mercedes the card.
"Well, you know the bowtie is cute, what if that's his trademark, Kurt? Oh, I already like the guy by this card, you SHOULD so have a date!" she says giggling a bit.
"Oh Mercedes, let's just head home, are you up for a full-facial tonight?"
"Yeah sure, but still", she says with a teasing smile on her lips,
"I think you should go on that apology-date with that Anderson-kid!"
