Kurt sat with Blaine on the dock, sitting indian style as his hand lightly brushed against Blaine's fin.
"I'm so sorry, Blaine, for everything, I truly am." He said softly. Blaine smiled and reached over to put his hand on top of Kurt's, squeezing it lightly. "If I had just figured it out a little sooner, you could've gotten your voice back, you could've stayed human, we could've been together."
Blaine gave Kurt a look.
"Okay, so technically I never figured it out... don't rub it in." Blaine smiled. "I just wish there was something I could do."
"Are you sure you can't talk? I was sure that when you smashed that necklace your voice would come back." Blaine shook his head and shrugged.
"But it doesn't make any sense, the bright light, it went right to your mouth, to your throat... I thought for sure it was your voice." He sighed. "I'm so angry with myself, if I had just kissed you when I wanted to..." His voice trailed off and he saw Blaine raise his eyebrows.
"Well... I suppose there's nothing stopping me from kissing you now..." he said softly before leaning in and pressing his lips to Blaine's.
Blaine blinked once in surprise before smiling against Kurt's lips.
Kurt's eyes widened a bit. "Blaine!"
"Oh my gosh... I spoke, my voice... it's back!" Blaine said happily before tackling Kurt in a hug.
Kurt laughed and wrapped his arms around Blaine's waist. "That's amazing!" He said in response before pulling away. "But how did that happen? I thought your voice was gone forever... what made it come back?"
"Well, my deal with the sea witch was that my voice would come back when you kissed me... I guess there was no deadline on that part of the deal."
Kurt smiled even more. "I'm glad that you have your voice back, at least we managed to get things back to the way they were."
Blaine frowned. "But, I don't want things to be the way they were..."
"I don't either. But I don't see how we can be together now that you're a merman again, and we're certainly not going to any more sea witches for favors."
"I wish there was something we could do." Blaine said softly as he squeezed Kurt's hand. "I don't want to say goodbye."
"Hey, I'm never saying goodbye to you, remember?" Kurt said quietly. "We'll figure something out... we'll still be in each others lives."
"But it won't be the same, because we won't be together."
Kurt sighed and looked down at the broken pieces of the necklace in Blaine's hand. "You know, you really should do something with that. Get rid of it or something, it freaks me out."
"Yeah, it freaks me out too, to think that all her power was in this tiny little necklace, that she could be destroyed so easily."
"Throw it in the water or something, I don't want to look at it anymore."
"Maybe I should smash it into smaller pieces, make sure it's completely destroyed, you know?"
"That's not a bad idea..."
"Can you hand me that rock?"
"Sure." Kurt said, reaching over and grabbing the rock before handing it to Blaine, watching as he smashed the shells into even smaller tiny little pieces.
Suddenly, as the rock came in contact with part of the necklace, the blinding bright light returned, Kurt having to cover his eyes with his hands as Blaine fell back and rolled off the dock and into the water.
Kurt gasped before crawling over to the edge of the dock and looking over it.
"Blaine! Are you okay?" He asked as Blaine popped his head above the water.
"I'm alright." He responded, looking a bit surprised.
"What's wrong?" he asked.
"Can you do me a favor?"
"Sure, what is it?"
"You said you had an extra pair of swim trunks, right?"
Kurt tilted his head a bit in confusion. "Yeah, why?"
"Because... I think I need them."
Kurt's eyes widened a bit and he smiled slightly.
"She did say my voice and legs were trapped in that necklace."
"So when you smashed it..."
"So... about that bathing suit?"
Kurt smiled even more. "Be right back!" He said before running off to get it.
When he came back, he tossed it into the water, helping Blaine back up onto the dock once he had the swimsuit on.
Blaine clung to Kurt, causing him to laugh as he toppled on top of him.
"I'm human!" He said happily as his body rested on top of Kurt's.
"You're heavy!" Kurt responded with a laugh.
Blaine turned slightly and looked at his feet, smiling widely.
"I have a scar on my foot! On my foot, Kurt! I have feet!"
"Why do you have a scar on your foot?"
"The hook, remember? When you found me I had a fishing hook in my fin... just because my fin turned into legs doesn't mean the scar disappeared."
"I can't believe that was a year ago."
"I can't believe I have legs again! I'm human!"
"So I've heard!" Kurt said as he continued to laugh before leaning up and kissing Blaine again.
"This means we can stay together!" Blaine said with a smile. "We'll be together forever! Forever and ever and ever!"
"Boy, I forgot how much you talk." Kurt teased before Blaine suddenly pulled away and hopped up, running off.
"Where are you going?" Kurt asked between laughs as he sat himself up.
"I have to go ask Finn what a dude is!" Blaine said as he turned back to look at Kurt before continuing to run off as Kurt burst into laughter.
