Once Blaine was showered and in clean hospital robes, he got back in the bed and the Nurse left the room.
"Feel better?" Kurt asked with a smile, tousling Blaine's wet curls. Blaine smirked
"Yeah, I do." Kurt wanted to talk to him about what had happened. Why he had kissed him, but he couldn't bring himself to do that, what if it just stressed Blaine out? What if he regretted it? Kurt was so screwed. He almost didn't notice Blaine looking at him, he gave a small smile.
"C'mere." Blaine said and Kurt complied. Blaine squinted his eyes and made his voice hoarse as he gestured with his index finger "Closer" he wheezed, Kurt rolled his eyes and jokingly put a hand beside Blaine's head and hovered over him.
"Much." Blaine smiled, he reached up and placed a hand on Kurt's cheek, all joking suddenly gone. Kurt's heart began to race, he wasn't sure he wanted to do this, not that he didn't want to kiss Blaine, just not while he was so hurt. But he thought that turning him down now would be even worse, so he leaned down when Blaine sat up and they met somewhere in the middle. This was exactly what Kurt had imagined it would be like, maybe even better. Blaine's lips were soft and warm, the kiss was nothing hot and heavy, but it didn't need to be, it was sweet. Blaine pulled away slightly, and Kurt rested his forehead against Blaine's.
"Blaine…" Kurt said as he sat back in the chair, Blaine looked over at him warily, like he was afraid Kurt would shoot him down. "I like you…a lot, like, more than a lot…but I'm not sure now is the right time to do this." Blaine frowned "you're so hurt," Kurt continued "it'd feel like I was-"
"Taking advantage of me." Blaine finished the sentence before Kurt could. But he looked amused rather than hurt "Kurt, I need you. I've needed you from the moment I met you, I don't even know how I survived before you came into my life. And right now is probably the best time for us to be together, I couldn't imagine going through this with anyone else by my side, I love you, and I need you right here with me." Kurt was stunned silent…Blaine had just told Kurt he loved him.
"This isn't necessary." Blaine grumbled as Kurt wheeled him out of the hospital
"Oh yes it is," Kurt giggled "it's hospital policy"
"So…I'm getting out of the hospital bed…just so I can go home and not be able to leave my bed, why does this make sense?"
"Because, snuggling in your bed is going to be so much more comfortable" Blaine laughed
"That may be the only good thing about this." Kurt helped Blaine into the passenger seat of his car and began to drive to his house. He pulled into the driveway, his parents were at work, therefore their cars were absent, but Katie's little car was parked on the street. Kurt helped Blaine out of the car and into the house, despite his grumbling. Katie opened the door for them and Kurt led Blaine to the staircase, which he looked at warily.
"oh dear God…" he sighed and began to climb the stairs, leaning heavily on the railing "Why do we have to have such a big house?" he groaned.
Once he was finally in bed, Kurt crawled right in next to him and smiled up at the boy
"Got all your stuff?" he asked, Blaine glanced over to the array of pills that Kurt had arranged on his nightstand and sighed
"Yup," he made a face, Kurt laughed
"You need to learn how to take pills" he chuckled
"No!" Blaine argued "I always choke. They make me gag" Kurt leaned up to kiss his cheek
"poor baby" he put on a pout and looked up to notice Katie leaning against the doorframe.
"Isn't this just precious" she cooed and came over to sit on the bed on the other side of Blaine. "You too are too cute for your own good." She said and kissed each of them on the forehead. She pushed Blaine's hair out of his eyes
"The bruises are almost gone," she commented "you can be handsome again!" Blaine rolled his eyes
"I'm never not handsome" he joked, frowning at his sister
"I second that" Kurt said, being completely serious.
"Get a room" Katie pretended to gag, Blaine lifted an eyebrow
"Uh, we have a room, it's my room, if you can't stand our love, you are free to leave." Katie held up her hands in a surrender
"Fine, fine. I'll be back later to make sure you actually swallow your pills this time" Blaine stuck his tongue out at her as she left the room. Kurt laughed and ran his hands through Blaine's hair
"This is why I love you."
