"Wait, so let me get this straight…" Blaine started.
He and Kurt were sitting at a booth in the restaurant Breadstix. Kurt was very familiar with it, having gone here several times, while Blaine had only gone there a couple of times. He had visited the spot when singing Silly Love Songs and he had also gone on a date with Kurt there. There weren't too many people dining tonight, since it was a weekday.
"We are going on a double date with a couple that isn't dating."
Kurt breathed in deeply. "Well, they aren't dating, but they've always sort of been involved."
Blaine furrowed his eyebrows and squinted his eyes. He put his elbow on the table and rested his chin in his palm. The look of confusion on his face made Kurt realize he had to explain the matter further.
"They're friends with benefits, who truly love each other."
"But they're both dating guys." Blaine said slowly.
"Yes. Although, Santana told me she's only dating Karofsky to get Brittany jealous and to, um, help him and her at the same time. This whole thing where they're dating each other kills down most of the rumors that have popped up about Santana's sexuality."
"Santana is a lesbian?"
"And Brittany is dating a guy because she loves him?"
"Yes, Artie isn't her beard or anything." Kurt said. "Oh, here they come."
"Hello boys." Santana said. Brittany sat down first, followed by Santana. Santana was wearing a knee length red skirt, a black top and black high heels. Brittany was a little more brightly dressed than her. She was wearing light blue shorts and a striped sweater.
Kurt, however, was wearing black skinny jeans and a nicely fitting black and red top. He also wore a belt and a beetle broach to complete his outfit. Blaine was just wearing a plain brown cardigan, a white v-neck underneath and dark blue jeans.
"Sorry we're late. A little problem came up." Santana said.
"Lord Tubbington hid my sweater." Brittany explained.
Blaine tilted his head and smiled slightly. "Lord Tubbington?"
"He's my cat. He got mad at me because I didn't want to give him more cheese."
"Oh, I see." Blaine said, smiling. "Nick and Jeff hide my hairgel all the time."
"Yeah, you wear way too much of that. And I thought Schue overused that." Santana said. Blaine turned to give her a look but turned back to Brittany very quickly.
"Are they your pets?"
"They're dolphins." Kurt added, smiling sweetly. Blaine gave him a confused look but didn't ask.
"Are many dolphins in Dalton?" Brittany asked. Blaine decided he didn't understand the conversation and probably never would, so he just sat back and watched Kurt lovingly. He was being way too cute discussing dolphins with the blonde.
"Dalton is not full with dolphins but yes, there are quite a few of them there. It could easily be mistaken for a dolphin school, but it's not." Kurt said.
A waitress came up to them and took their orders. She assumed Kurt and Brittany were dating and Santana and Blaine were dating and complimented them, telling them they were a cute couple. Before anyone could correct her, Brittany thanked the waitress.
"Do you know you look like a hobbit?" Santana asked Blaine.
"Yes. I get that a lot."
"No, I mean, you really look like a hobbit. Kurt, if he has really hairy feet, I think it's safe to assume you'll live in a hole in the ground for the rest of your life."
"Artie's feet's are hairy." Brittany commented.
"How are things going with him?" Kurt asked. Santana looked very interested in her glass of water and Brittany frowned.
"We broke up. He called me stupid." She said in a small voice.
"If it means anything to you, I don't think you're stupid." Blaine said. Brittany's face lit up.
"Thank you, dolphin hobbit. If it means anything to you, I like your eyebrows." She leaned in closer to Blaine and whispered loudly. "If I were you, I'd use them to cheat in math exams."
Blaine just smiled and whispered loudly back. "I'll keep that in mind. In fact, I think that's why Wes scored so high on his last math exam."
"Is Wes from Mars?" Brittany asked.
"No, Britts, he's from Earth. Is this the same Wes Mike was talking about last week?" Santana said.
"Mike knows Wes?" Kurt asked.
"The Asian community is very tight. Ugh, where is the waitress with our food. I wants to get my eating on." Santana said.
"Santana, we're not supposed to talk about that in public." Brittany said. Santana looked uncomfortable while Kurt tried to hide a smirk. Blaine just looked awkward.
The waitress put their food down and quickly left, sensing the awkward air that surrounded the table. After a few minutes of eating their food in silence, Kurt finally spoke up.
"Since Brittany isn't dating anyone then why aren't you two dating?" Kurt asked. Santana looked very uncomfortable and fidget around in her seat a little, before facing Kurt.
"It's just not that easy, okay, Kurt? I'm dating Dave and I…" She seemed at loss for words and turned her head slightly to her right, trying to keep up the attitude. "I'm not…" she said, her voice shaking slightly. "I'm not ready yet."
"Santana…" Brittany said softly. "I understand that and all but you're so strong. If anyone said anything bad about you, you'd go all Lima Heights on them."
Santana laughed and smiled at Brittany.
"Look, Santana, you should come by Dalton sometimes." Blaine said. Santana raised her eyebrows at him.
"What, so I can be surrounded by gay? I kind of am right now."
Blaine smiled, but Kurt spoke up. "No, so you can be surrounded by people who don't judge you. It could do some good for you. I know Dalton is not the real world but it's nice to escape every now and then to a place where everyone cares for you, accepts you and loves you."
"But Dalton is a school for boys. Santana isn't a boy, Kurt." Brittany said.
"I think Kurt meant that she could just come and visit sometimes. You can come too, Brittany. I'm sure you and James would get along swimmingly." Blaine said.
"You have a pool? Oh, that's so cool! Santana, can we please go?" Brittany pleaded. Santana rolled her eyes and muttered a 'yes'.
Okay, so this chapter was supposed to be a good, Klaine centered one but I didn't get any good ideas for it, so this is what happened. Sorry. And sorry for not updating so often anymore. I have more time now, although. Oh and I tried to keep them all in character, I hope I didn't fail on that.
