Kurt quickly whipped through the in-class work Mr. Schuester assigned in Spanish, but was left with ten more minutes of the class period. He glanced over at Blaine sitting next to him and flashed a subtle smile when he was he was done too. Apparently there was a strong Spanish program at his old school.
Kurt tore out a corner of his notebook and scribble on it before sliding it across the table to Blaine.
Blaine playfully rolled his eyes at the note before writing a response.
Hi :) –B
You should come over after school today. My dad took another shift and won't be home until 6 ;) –K
Blaine blushed a little while reading the note, quickly writing a reply and sliding it back.
Way to be subtle. –B
Well I guess its a good thing nobody can hear us then. -K
What ever shall we do in these fine hours of solitude? –B
Kurt was about to reply with a witty remark but was interrupted by the bell ringing. He gathered his things and when briefly passing by Blaine on his way out whispered, "I guess you'll just have to wait and see."
Kurt smirked at him before heading his way out of the class.
"Kurt, can I talk to you for a minute?" Kurt turned on his heel and marched back towards his teacher who called for him. He tucked the note away in his back pocket before answering.
"Is there anything I can help you with?"
"Actually yes," Mr. Schuester answered. "Kurt, you are the best student in my class, so I was hoping that maybe you could tutor a student in another class who's struggling with this section. I'm willing to offer extra credit, although you don't even need it."
"I'd be happy too!" Kurt replied enthusiastically.
"Thank you so much. I'll set you up with the classroom tomorrow after school, is that alright?"
"That's fine with me. I'll be here," he told his teacher before heading off to his next class.
After school, Kurt headed home, tidying up his hair and clothes a bit before Blaine arrived. He knew that Blaine didn't care if his hair and clothing was perfect or not, and if Kurt had any say in how the afternoon went, he'd be fixing his hair again before his father got home.
Kurt popped some sugar cookies in the oven while he waited for Blaine. It wasn't much, just some slice and bake cookies, but they were pretty good and it gave him something to keep himself occupied, since he didn't feel like doing homework yet.
He was sitting in the living room, flipping through the latest issue of Vogue, his mouth watering at the smell of sugar cookies baking in the oven, when Blaine knocked on the door. Kurt quickly hopped up from the couch opening the door to Blaine's smiling face. "Hey Blaine!"
Blaine walked through the door, "Hi, Kurt!" The house smelled of delicious cookies when he walked into the living room, "What are you making, Kurt? It smells delicious!"
"Oh, just some cookies. I was bored and decided to make them to pass the time." Kurt shrugged it off, it wasn't a big deal, it was just a store bought dough.
"Well the smell scrumptious, and I know if you made them, they're bound to be good!" Blaine smiled, taking Kurt's hands in his own and kissing Kurt's cheek. "So, are you going to tell me what your plans are to take advantage of this solitude?" He asked, raising an eyebrow at Kurt.
"Oh, you'll see!" Kurt answered with a wink, pulling away from his boyfriend and walking towards the kitchen as the timer on the oven went off. "Why don't you have a seat and I'll bring us some cookies and milk."
Blaine smirked, sitting himself down on the couch. He wondered what Kurt was up to. He sure was acting cheeky.
Kurt came back out with a plate of cookies and two mugs of milk. He sat the plate of cookies down on the coffee table in front of Blaine before handing the other boy one of the mugs. "Eat up!" he said, sitting next to his boyfriend. He grabbed a cookie for himself, dunked it in the milk and took a bite.
Blaine picked up one of the cookies and took a large bite of it. "Mmm, these are really good, Kurt!" Blaine said around a mouth full of cookie.
Kurt glanced over at the other boy, "Uh thanks, I think." Kurt wasn't sure what he saw in Blaine, but somehow he looked quite adorable, even if he was talking with his mouth full.
Kurt finished up his cookie, watching as Blaine shoved the rest of his own cookie in his mouth and took a large gulp of milk.
"What? It was really good!" Blaine defended himself when he saw that Kurt was staring at him.
"I can see that! I just don't understand how one person could shove that much food in their mouth at one time."
"It wasn't that much, Kurt! That cookie wasn't too terribly big! Maybe you just have an unusually small mouth!" He pouted
Kurt shot Blaine a look, "Okay, Blaine, whatever helps you sleep at night!"
"Yes, I sleep quite well at night knowing that my mouth is of average size and yours is unusually small." He joked.
"So," Blaine nudged at Kurt's shoulder, "As wonderful as these cookies are, I can't help but think this wasn't the reason you invited me over and specifically stated that your father wouldn't be home until late."
Kurt raised an eyebrow, "Maybe it was! Maybe I just didn't want to share my cookies with him."
Blaine looked over towards Kurt, giving him a look that told Kurt he knew he was lying.
"Fine!" Kurt laughed, "You caught me! It's not every day you have the house to yourself for a few hours to do whatever you want."
Blaine quirked an eyebrow, "Whatever you want?" he asked curiously, "And do you have anything specific in mind?"
"I don't know, maybe." Kurt smirked. Of course he had a lot of things in mind. He just wasn't sure how many of those ideas Blaine would be okay with. They had only started recently dating and he didn't want his overactive teenage hormones to drive Blaine away.
Blaine looked up at Kurt with his best puppy dog eyes, and tracing patterns against the boy's chest through his shirt. "Well, are you going to tell me? Or do I have to guess?"
"I.. I could tell you, but I think it'd be more f..fun for you to guess." Kurt stuttered, the feel of Blaine's finger making his skin tingle. He wanted to tell Blaine exactly what he had in mind. How he wanted to push Blaine against the couch and feel their warm bodies together and their tongues battling for dominance. He wanted to tell Blaine how much he wanted to run his fingers through his soft curls, and how much he wanted to suck at Blaine's beautiful neck, and leave a small mark right above his collar, just enough to tell everyone that Blaine was his, and only his.
"Oh, so you're going to be that way, hu?" Blaine smirked, "I'd like to think I'm a pretty good guesser though."
Blaine leaned over, pressing a light kiss to Kurt's neck. "We can turn this into a game of hot or cold." Blaine whispered against Kurt's ear, quickly sucking at the skin right below Kurt's ear, his hand reaching around the boy to cup his cheek.
"W…warmer…" Kurt half moaned. He'd never meant for his voice to come out like that, but goodness did Blaine's lips feel good against his skin.
Blaine hummed his acknowledgment against Kurt's skin, softly stroking his hand up and down the boy's side, and just breathing in everything Kurt. He didn't know how one person could smell so delicious. He moved his lips to Kurt's, tentatively pressing their lips together.
"Warmer…" Kurt mumbled, returning the kiss, his tongue flicking out to lick at Blaine's bottom lip. He couldn't believe how cliché this whole situation was, making out on the couch while his father was away. He wasn't the type of person to do this kind of thing.
Blaine deepened the kiss, sucking the boy's tongue gently into his own mouth, and tentatively slid his hand under the back of Kurt's shirt, stroking his palm against the bare skin. He didn't want to push Kurt too far so fast, but he just wanted to touch and feel closer to Kurt.
"Hot.. very hot…" Kurt mumbled into the kiss when he felt Blaine's hand slide up under his shirt. He'd never expected things to accelerate this fast.
Suddenly Kurt heard keys fumbling in the front door, he glanced at the clock on the wall, it was already 6:30. When did that happen? Kurt pushed Blaine off him, causing the shorter boy to fall to the floor between the couch and the coffee table. He quickly switched on the TV and helped Blaine back up onto the couch.
"Hey Kurt! Hey Blaine!" Burt greeted as he saw the boys sitting together on the couch. He glanced at the TV as the credits to 'American Pie' played. He glanced back at the boys, "Good movie?"
"Yes! It was quite thrilling!" Kurt answered.
"Okay" Burt said, walking towards the kitchen.
Blaine nudged Kurt, gesturing towards the TV, and Kurt blushed when he realized what his father thought they had been watching.
They both collapsed in a fit of laughter.
The next day passed rather uneventfully. Kurt went to his classes and met up with Blaine in the hallways during breaks. They shared a lunch together and enjoyed each other's company. What they didn't notice during lunch, were the eyes that followed their every movements.
From one end of the cafeteria, Mercedes glared at the two of them. She tried to be happy for Kurt, but she still felt the loss of her first boyfriend. She really loved him and couldn't believe Kurt lied to her for so long. She probably should have realized he was gay after he didn't want to do anything with her. But as they say, love is blind. Mercedes felt a little bad about outing Kurt to everyone, but besides the bullying, he looked much happier. Mostly because he had Blaine. Mercedes wanted him to be happy, but was still bitter inside.
From the other end of the cafeteria, Karofsky watched Kurt and Blaine eat together with a glare. They shouldn't allow them to do that. To be like that. Here in the school. It was wrong and unnatural. And as his dad said, they should get rid of those damn homosexuals. They pollute the Earth. Karofsky glared at them and made sure he knew where they were at all times. He would have to plan something to get back at them.
Lunch ended and Kurt and Blaine walked happily to their next classes. Near the end of the day, both boys had a spare. Kurt had his tutoring session when classes ended but the boys had a good half hour before that started. They entered the empty Spanish classroom and closed the door. They moved away from the door and finally had a second alone.
"How much time do we have?" Blaine asked.
"At least 20 minutes. That will give us enough time for us to calm down and for you to leave before I have to tutor someone in Spanish," Kurt responded .
"Sounds like just enough time," Blaine said.
Blaine grabbed Kurt in a kiss and the two boys kissed each other passionately. They had only been together for a short amount of time but it felt like forever to them. They were invincible and nothing could stop them.
Kurt brought his hand under Blaine's shirt and slowly traced a pattern on Blaine's stomach. They didn't really have time for much but they didn't want to go too far this early in the relationship either.
Blaine responded to Kurt's wandering hand by kissing Kurt's neck with fervour. He sucked on a spot there causing Kurt to moan in pleasure. Blaine knew Kurt would disapprove of what he was doing but at the moment Kurt was too preoccupied to care. But, there would definitely be a mark there after.
Kurt tilted his head back to give Blaine better access to his neck and Blaine began licking the spot he sucked before, as if he was truly marking Kurt as his. They knew they shouldn't be doing this in an open classroom, still during school hours, but they couldn't help it. Everything about this relationship was new and exciting and both boys were not going to let an opportunity slip through their fingers.
Kurt brought their mouths back together and they resumed kissing. In their passion for each other, they both missed the sound of the school bell ringing and classes letting out. Most students ran out into the corridors and left the school as much as possible, not turning back t o the classrooms at all. They wanted to get out as fast as possible. As the hallways thinned out, one student made his way to the Spanish classroom for his tutoring lesson.
Kurt sucked on Blaine's lip, begging for entrance when the door to the classroom burst open and both boys heard someone say, "What the fuck?"
Kurt and Blaine whipped their heads to face the intruder and their faces paled in shock and fear as they saw it was Karofsky.
All three boys started at each other for a moment before Karofsky said, "What the heck are you two homos doing in here? I don't want you gaying up the place."
Kurt and Blaine slowly separated and stood up tall together to look more intimidating.
"Um, I'm supposed to be tutoring someone now," Kurt got out, upset at how he didn't sound very confident.
Karofsky looked appalled then said, "Seriously? You are supposed to teach me Spanish? I rather fail."
Blaine winced and pulled away as Kurt got his bitch face on and said, "Look, you need a tutor? I was sent here. If you don't want to get help, be my guest. The door is right behind you."
"What I don't need is to see you two sucking face here. It's wrong. You shouldn't do it. You shouldn't want to. It's not right," Karofsky said.
As he said that, Blaine looked thoughtful. That didn't sound exactly like Karofsky believed what he was saying. More like he was trying to convince himself of that. Because if that was true that would mean...
"You don't get a say in how I live my life, Karofsky!" Kurt exclaimed angrily.
"Yeah? Well maybe if you two weren't sucking each other's faces off it wouldn't bother me that much," Karofsky said.
At that moment, someone tapped their foot and cleared their throat at the door of the classroom. Kurt was about to respond to Karofsky before Blaine's eyes went wide and he let out a huge gasp, staring at the door.
That got all three boys' attention and they turned to face the man standing there.
"Well, Blaine. I knew you were getting into trouble, but I didn't expect for you to be this big of a fag. Probably this one's fault. Isn't it. He just screams fairy. Looks too weak to even be able to do anything for himself," the man said motioning to Kurt.
"Excuse me? Who are you to talk to us like that?" Kurt asked before Blaine quickly shushed him.
"What are you doing here, Dad?" Blaine asked.
That caused both Kurt and Karofsky to gasp.
"That's your dad?" Kurt asked.
Karofsky looked between them and tried to hide in the corner. He looked like he wanted to be anywhere but there.
"I've had enough of this foolishness. You said you had a girlfriend, Blaine the last time we talked. What happened to her. Or was she all a lie to hide your disgusting nature. Tell me the truth now," Blaine's Dad asked menacingly.
Blaine looked like he wanted to lie but he looked back at Kurt for a moment and saw Kurt's hurt look. He didn't know if it was from what Blaine's Dad was saying or if he thought this would scare Blaine off and make them break up.
Blaine decided what he had to do and looked his father in the eye.
"Dad. I've wanted to say this to you for a while, but I know what you think so I didn't. As much as you don't want to admit it, you have known for a while too. Dad, I'm gay. And this is my boyfriend, Kurt. And I don't like girls and never will. And there is nothing you can do to change that," Blaine said.
Blaine's Dad looked like he was contemplating all that when his hand stuck out and hit Blaine on the side of his face, a ring cutting into Blaine's cheek. Blaine wasn't prepared for the impact and fell to the floor.
Kurt looked horrified and kneeled beside Blaine asking, "Are you okay, Blaine?"
Then Kurt looked up at Blaine's father and said, "How dare you do that to your son? There is nothing wrong with him. This is who he is. And he was brave enough to come out and tell you. There is no reason for you to hate him!"
Blaine's father looked menacingly at Kurt and said, "You are the one who turned him gay!"
Then Blaine's father raised his arm as if he were to hit Kurt. Kurt closed his eyes and braced for the impact but it never came. He opened his eyes and was completely shocked at the turn of events.
Karofsky was standing in between them and had blocked Kurt from getting hit. Kurt's mouth fell open in shock and he looked to Karofsky who also looked like he was completely shocked he defended the two of them.
Blaine's Dad looked at Karofsky and said, "What do you want? Get out of the way. Just need to teach these girls a lesson."
"No," Karofsky said.
Everyone looked at him shocked.
"No?" Blaine's Dad asked.
Karofsky looked unsure but stood his ground.
"You won't hurt them. I've done that enough and it's time for it to stop," Karofsky said.
Blaine's Dad scoffed and said, "Oh really. And why do you care about those fags so much?"
Karofsky flinched at the word and then said without thinking, "Because I'm one of them!"
The room was silent as everyone processed what was said. Blaine's Dad looked disgusted while Kurt and Blaine looked shocked. They looked at each other then to Karofsky then back to each other as if they couldn't comprehend what just happened. Did Karofsky just come out to them? That couldn't have happened.
Karofsky looked the most shocked out of all of them. His eyes moved quickly looking everywhere but the people in the room. He opened his mouth as if he were going to back track or something but didn't know what he could say to rectify the situation. He hadn't even realized it fully himself. It was the way he looked at Kurt in the halls. Or the way he looked at Kurt and Blaine together. It wasn't that he hated them. It was that he was jealous of them. He was jealous of what they had and what they could be. He wanted that for himself, and his brain said it out loud to others before he even knew himself.
Blaine's Dad looked between the three of them and glared.
"You are all disgusting. You shouldn't be allowed to exist. Blaine, you will come home right now and we will move. I will send you back to that camp. We will fix it. It worked for a while last time," Blaine's Dad said.
"No it didn't!" Blaine yelled then said, "You just thought it did. You can't "ungay" someone. You are either gay or you are not."
"I will not put up with this insolence," Blaine's Dad said went to grab Blaine but Karofsky blocked them once more.
"No, see. I think I'm starting to understand. All this right and wrong stuff. That's what my dad always said too. But it can't be true," Karofsky pondered out loud.
Then he looked at Kurt and Blaine and his eyes softened, "Can't you see how happy together they are? How wrong can it be?"
Blaine's Dad just looked even more disgusted and Karofsky turned to face him once more.
"I think you should leave," Karofsky said, standing up straighter to bring himself to his full height.
Karofsky was pretty impressive standing there in front of Blaine's dad. He wasn't a football player for nothing.
Blaine's Dad looked as if he were contemplating what to do before he seemed to make a decision and said, "Fine. Have your fun. You better be back home tonight, Blaine. Because I think it's time to have another "family talk."
Blaine's Dad laughed a little and raised his eyebrow menacingly. Then he turned around and left the room.
Blaine and Kurt let out the breath they were holding and collapsed against each other on the floor.
"Let me see your cheek, Blaine. Are you okay? Does that happen often?" Kurt asked.
"I'm fine," Blaine said, wincing as Kurt looked at his face.
Then Kurt turned to Karofsky who was still standing in the middle of the classroom unmoving.
"That was really brave of you. I never knew you were gay, but thank you so much for defending us. You didn't have to at all," Kurt said.
Suddenly, Karofsky's guard was back up and he glared at Blaine and Kurt, seemingly wiping away a tear that may have fallen down his face.
"It didn't mean anything. I was just saying that," Karofsky tried.
"Dave, it's okay. I know how hard it is to hide something like that. I did for many years," Kurt said.
Dave looked at them before he said, "Yeah, whatever. You won't tell anyone about this, okay? And your dad better not either."
"Don't worry. I don't think he wants to associate himself with any more gay people anyway," Blaine said dejectedly.
"Right, so, I'm leaving. I'll just get a new tutor later," Dave said before he left the classroom.
Kurt looked over to Blaine who looked back at Kurt.
"I don't even know what just happened," Kurt said.
"Yeah. Karofsky, who'd have thought," Blaine said, trying to forget about everything that happened with his dad.
"We should probably get out of here," Kurt said.
"Yeah, " Blaine nodded.
Then, Blaine paused and looked at Kurt.
"Hey, Kurt? Do you think I could come over to your place? I just want to let my dad cool down," Blaine said.
"What? Of course! If you think I'm letting you go back to your place right now you are insane! Now, come with me, and we can look over your cheek when we get home. And if both myself and my dad have anything to say about it, we won't let you go back to your father when he is like that," Kurt said.
"Kurt, I couldn't impose," Blaine said.
"It's nothing. I, I really like you , Blaine. And I know we haven't been together for long, but I don't want to see you hurt. And sending you back home now? That would just get you hurt. My dad will understand," Kurt said.
The two boys looked at each other for a moment before Blaine pressed a chaste kiss to Kurt's lips.
"Come on," Kurt said, getting up and offering his hand to Blaine's.
Blaine grabbed Kurt's hand and the two boys walked outside together to the parking lot.
On the way out, Kurt tired to lighten the mood and said, "Maybe we can find some ice cream at my place again. This time, I'm thinking Rocky Road."
Blaine let out a short laugh and the two boys walked out of the school together, moods slightly lifted with the promise of ice cream.
