AN: This was inspired by part of the lyrics from "Not Alone" by Danny Jones for a Drabble Challenge I do on facebook. I don't write drabbles often (I've got a handful now for the group) and this is the first one I'm posting here but I really liked this one so here it is. Please let me know what you think.
Finn stood in front of the mirror in his old bedroom for the last time, the bow tie hanging untied from his shoulders. Getting it tied right was a lost cause. Finn felt like he had no clue what he was doing, which to the teenager seemed to be the story of his life recently. When did things get so complicated? Was marriage only going to complicate things further? He had a sudden wish that he was a freshman again.
There was a soft knock at the door. Finn looked over his shoulder as Kurt walked into the room.
"You ready? Dad's ready to leave so we can get you to the church on time."
Finn picked up the two ends of the silk material that was supposed to form a bow tie. "Except for this stupid tie . . ." he muttered, his fingers fumbling through what he thought were the steps again.
And then Kurt was standing in between Finn and the mirror. "Here let me," Kurt said, taking the silk out of Finn's hand and expertly forming a perfect bow with it. "There you go. Elegant and stylish, and ready to go make the biggest mistake of your life."
Finn sighed. Kurt still hadn't changed his mind about his upcoming marriage to Rachel. "If you still think that then why did you agree to be my best man?"
"Because Finn, no matter what I think, it's your life. You're free to do what you want with it and while I refuse to stand by and watch you make mistakes without attempting to stop you, as your brother, I'm always going to be there for you no matter what. I've had my say, you've made your choice, and now it's time for me to be the supportive brother and stand by your side even if I do think you're making a mistake," Kurt told him. "I'm just surprised you still asked me?"
"Kurt, you and I haven't seen eye to eye over a lot of things these last few years," Finn told him, reaching out and resting his hands on Kurt's shoulders. "Despite that I feel like you're the only one that sees me for who I really am and not just the fake image we portray to society."
"Why Finn Hudson, I do believe that is the most profound thing I've ever heard you say."
Sharing a laugh, Finn enveloped his stepbrother in a hug. No matter how hard life got, Finn took strength in knowing this brotherly bond would always stay strong.
