(12) Missing Klaine Scenes: Prom Queen
A/N: I know I haven't updates in a while it's cuz I was working on two other stories and then I was working on the missing scenes from on my way which I won't be posting until I have completed the prior ones so... Here it is! Prom Queen! (One of my favorite episodes!) And a little brotherly Furt!
Blaine walked into Breadstix. Kurt had told him to meet him there for something important. He smiled when he saw his boyfriend (He absolutely LOVED calling Kurt that) sitting in a booth and went to sit with him.
"Take my hand." said Kurt, holding out his hand towards Blaine. Smiling, Blaine took his hand. "Blaine Warbler," Blaine laughed lightly at the nickname the New Directions! had given him. "Will you go to Junior Prom with me? It'll be the social event of the season!" a horrible thought struck Kurt when Blaine didn't answer. "You don't want to go to Prom with me?"
"No! No!" said Blaine. "it's just... Fwew... Prom..."
"What about Prom, Blaine?"
If it were under different circumstances, Blaine would've laughed at his 'Pretty In Pink' reference. "It's just, at my old school we had this Sadie Hawkins dance. I had just come out. I asked a friend of mine, the only other out kid at my school. While we were waiting for his dad to pick us up, these three guys came and... beat the living crap out of us."
"I'm so sorry."
"I'm out. And I'm proud, but it's just a bit of a sore spot for me."
"This is perfect," said Kurt. "You couldn't face the bullies at your old school, so you can face them at my school." Blaine laughed lightly at his boyfriends slightly twisted logic. "We can do it together... But I have to say, if it makes you uncomfortable at all, we'll forget about prom. We'll catch a movie instead."
Blaine hated hearing the disappointment in Kurt's voice. He could tell how much it would mean to him if he went. "I am crazy about you." he said.
"Sooo, I'll take that as a yes?" Blaine heard the excitement and hope in Kurt's voice and couldn't help but cave.
"Yes. You and I are going to Prom." Kurt squealed with delight and Blaine smiled as saw how much this meant to him.
After Kurt calmed down, he said "Just so you know, I'm crazy about you too."
"Is that so?" asked Blaine mischievously. "How crazy are you?"
"Hmm." said Kurt with a smile. "On a scale from one to ten... Fourteen."
"Have I ever told you how adorable you are?" asked Blaine.
"Many times." said Kurt with a smile.
Blaine was at Kurt's house, in the living room, talking about Prom while Kurt was trying on his outfit.
Finn and Burt were there. Finn had already gotten used to the idea of his little brother (who was actually three months older than him) having a boyfriend, but that didn't mean he was cool with it. Kurt was still his little brother and Finn knew that dating meant possibly getting hurt, and after what Kurt had been through with Karofsky, Finn had promised himself that he'd do whatever it took to make sure Kurt was never hurt like that again. Which is why he was taking his sweet time trusting Blaine.
Blaine sensed the tension between him and Finn, so he decided to maybe try a little icebreaker. "So, you think it'll be cool if I jam with you guys at Prom?" Blaine asked nervously. Finns approval would really mean a lot to him. And to Kurt, which Blaine hoped would help his chances with getting on Finn's good side.
"Yeah." Finn said. "Totally." the only reason Finn had agreed was because the Warblers weren't technically competition anymore, and because it would mean so much to Kurt. But he really didn't like the idea of it.
Burt had just finished telling the boys that a friend of his would give the boys half off their suits, when Kurt stepped out of his room in his Prom outfit.
"Dude, that rocks! It's like gay Braveheart!" said Finn supportively.
To Finn's shock, Burt, who had always been so supportive of his son, said "I don't like it."
"Well of course you don't!" exclaimed Kurt. "It's not finished yet. I still think it needs some beads or a sash."
"I'm not gonna stop you from wearing it," said Burt. "but, I gotta be honest, I think that you're just trying to stir the pot a little bit. I think you're trying to get some attention. Now I want you to be yourself, but I also want you to be practical. There are a lot of mean people and they're a lot worse than this Karofsky kid."
"I'm with your dad on this one." said Blaine.
Kurt gave him a look. "Now, Blaine I understand that after what you've been through, you'd be hesitant to go... But I am wearing this suit, I worked hard on it and you're welcome to join me." with that, Kurt walked back into his room.
"Well," said Burt. "I think I'm going to the garage..." he got up and left, obviously sensing the tension in the room.
Finn was giving Blaine a stare-down. Blaine felt Finn's eyes burn through him. Finally, Finn spoke. "Wow..." he said shaking his head. "I can't believe that you're not behind Kurt on this one... I'm honestly disappointed in you. I expected more from you. Now, I don't know what you've been through, but I thought that being gay and all, and being his... Boyfriend... you'd understand how important it for Kurt to be able express himself. Something that he's been denied most of his life." Blaine was partially scared of Finn right now, being protective of Kurt, and impressed that when it came to protecting Kurt, his vocabulary improved slightly. "Kurt has taken a lot of crap from a lot of people, including me, for being who he is and trying to show it. Is it really too much for me to ask for him to be able to be himself for just ONE night, without having to take crap from any ignorant assholes?" Finn was clearly upset now. "It's- it's just... It's not fair! Kurt has never been mean or- or cruel to anybody. I mean even though he was all over me last year, he was just clueless, never mean. He didn't deserve what I called him or the blanket or the lamp... What did he do to deserve this? What did he do?" Finn was looking at Blaine now, obviously puzzled by the injustices of the world.
Instead of answering Finns question, Blaine just shook his head, got up and walked to Kurt's room. He knocked on the already open door. Kurt was on the bed, facing away from the door. He brought his sleeve up to his face, like he was wiping away tears. Blaine sat next to Kurt. Kurt quickly pulled him in a hug.
"I'm sorry," said Kurt. "you weren't comfortable with this and I shouldn't have pushed you into it."
Blaine pulled away from the hug, looked Kurt in the eyes and ran his hand from his hair to the side of his face repeatedly in a caressing motion. "Stop it." Blaine said, shaking his head. "I'm your boyfriend." Kurt smiled at this. "I should support you no matter what. If you want to wear the suit then wear it. Not that you need my approval." Blaine added quickly. He smiled at his boyfriend. "I think it makes you look beautiful and handsome."
Kurt's smile widened. "That's kind of a paradox, don't you think?"
Blaine shrugged. "You make it work." Blaine smiled. He leaned in and kissed Kurt. Kurt angled his head to deepen the kiss. He would never get tired of Blaine, the taste of him, the way he made him feel, the smell of him.
Blaine cupped Kurt's face with the palm of his hand. He could do this for hours. He could sit there forever and just let the rest of the world disappear...
A voice interrupted them. "Uh, guys?" said Finn. They flew apart faster than lighting could strike a pole.
"Finn!" squeaked Kurt. "Ever heard of knocking?"
"The door was open..." he pointed out. "I was wondering if I could give Blaine a ride home. You know, so we could like, bond or something..."
"Sure." said Blaine, clearly embarrassed as he grabbed his stuff. He gave Kurt a quick hug. "I'll see you on Friday." he whispered on his ear. Kurt was smiling uncontrollably as Blaine and Finn walked out the door.
Blaine and Finn were driving to Westerville when Teenage Dream came on the radio.
"I LOVE this song!" exclaimed Blaine. "It uh, it's the song I sang during a Warblers impromptu performance the day I met Kurt." Blaine smiled fondly at the memory. He shook his head. "God, he was such a terrible spy."
"So," said Finn. "Are you serious about my brother?" he elaborated when he saw Blaine's puzzled look. "You really like him? You're not just... Using him?"
"I would never use Kurt. I love him." Blaine was shocked at himself as the words just slipped out. "Could you, uh not mention that to Kurt?" Blaine asked sheepishly. "I- I don't wanna freak him out..."
Finn ignored that last part. "Good." he said. "Because I love Kurt too. Well, not like... That... But you know what I mean. He's my baby brother now."
"But he's three months older than you." Blaine pointed out.
"That's besides the point... And if I EVER find out that you hurt my brother... I, along with the rest of the guys in Glee Club, and probably most of the girls, will kill you."
Blaine gulped at the thought. He had taken self defense classes, but Finn alone had a good ten inches on him, and he was sure that there was no way he could take all of the Glee club guys... Or girls for that matter. "Duly noted." he said nervously.
They arrived at Blaine's house. Blaine got off and walked towards the gate. As Blaine was opening the gate, Finn called after him. "Hey, Blaine!" he called. Blaine turned around wondering if the left anything in the car or something. Finn gave Blaine the same 'eye on you' gesture Burt had given him the day Kurt told him about them. Blaine nodded and quickly walked inside, wondering what it was with Kurt's family threatening him using that gesture.
Kurt and Blaine were in the gym dancing to 'Friday'. The song ended and everybody started cheering. Rachel was up next, she was singing 'Jar of Hearts'.
"I uh, I'm kind of tired," said Blaine nervously. "Maybe we should sit this one out..." Kurt nodded, understanding that this was about more than being tired.
"It's amazing how inclusive the Prom is this year." said Kurt.
"There's someone for everyone." replied Blaine.
"Even if it's a lie." he said looking towards Santana and Karofsky.
"Look, Kurt," sighed Blaine. "I know you wanted to slow dance or something, and believe me, I do too! Like I said, I'm crazy about you..." he smiled at Kurt "But I just... I don't want to give anybody a reason to cause trouble..."
Kurt looked at Blaine lovingly. "I understand. It was a lot to ask of you to just come to this. Just you being here," Kurt smiled. "That's enough for me."
Blaine smiled. "Thank you." 'Jar of Hearts' ended and the crowd applauded. "Well, that's my cue, I'm up next." he smiled and left to the stage. An upbeat tune started and Blaine started singing.
You are the girl! That I've been dreaming of
Ever since I was I was a little girl!
I'm biting my tongue
He's kissing on you
Oh why can't you see?
One! Two! Three! Four!
Kurt was watching his boyfriend dance dorkily around the stage. He was so dorky, it was cute. He smiled when Blaine gave him a wink.
"Figures a queer guy would sing a song about being a queer girl." Kurt's face flamed at this comment and he twirled around to face two jocks from the hockey team.
"That QUEER you seem to be talking about happens to be my boyfriend! And he will be twice the man that you will NEVER be!" he spat.
"You better watch your mouth, Lady Face!" the first yelled, holding up his fist. "Before I punch it in!"
"Well, I guess you're more stupid than I thought, threatening me with violence with so many chaperones around."
The first jock lunged towards him, but the second held him back. "He's not worth it, Marcus." he said. Then he mumbled something that sounded like "This fag will get what's coming to him later on tonight..." but it was inaudible to Kurt's ears.
They walked away and Kurt spun around to see Jessie and Finn shoving each other. Finn finally threw a punch at Jessie, who ducked and avoided the punch. Coach Sylvester broke the two up and escorted them out. What the hell was going on? Kurt walked over to Rachel. "What the hell just happened?" he asked.
"Jessie and Finn! They- they" she seemed flustered. She crossed her arms across her chest. "They got in a fight!"
Kurt tried to comfort her. "Calm down!" he said. She was just freaking out.
Blaine appeared by his side, as the song had ended. The hecticness continued until Principal Figgins came on the mic. "Will all the candidates for Prom Queen and King please step on the stage." all the candidates stepped on the stage. "Your 2010-2011 Prom King is... David Karofsky!"
Kurt couldn't help but smile. He was so proud of David and how far he'd come. He was genuinely becoming a better person and Kurt forgot, for a moment, the old Dave and marveled with pride at the new one.
"And your 2010-2011 McKinley high Prom Queen is... With an overwhelming number of write-in votes..." Principal Figgins face fell. "Kurt Hummel..."
Blaine looked at his boyfriend as the smile disappeared from his face. What was going on?
Kurt's heart sunk. He felt the heat of everyone's gaze burn through him. Everybody was staring him. This couldn't be happening. This was a nightmare. He felt tears welling up in his eyes. 'Stop it!' he thought to himself. Nothing was going to stop the tears now. He ran out of the room. If he was going to cry, he wasn't going to give these people the satisfaction of seeing him do it. The thing that hurt the most, though, was that Kurt thought it was just the jocks who felt that way about him. It meant the rest of the school either hated him or just didn't give a damn.
Blaine ran after Kurt, "Kurt! Kurt! Stop! Come back! Kurt!" they were in the hallway now.
"I've never been so humiliated." cried Kurt.
Blaine was still chasing after Kurt. "Kurt! Come on! Stop! Kurt!" He finally stopped in the hallway.
"Don't you get how stupid we were? We thought that because nobody was teasing us or beating us up that nobody cared! Like some sort of progress had been made! But it's still the same..."
"it's just a stupid joke." Blaine tried to comfort him.
Kurt shook his head. "No it's not. All that hate. They were just afraid to say it out loud! So they did it by secret ballot! I'm one big anonymous practical joke... I can't go back In there..."
Blaine was sitting against the lockers now. "Would you at least sit down?" Kurt's pacing was making him nervous. "Do you wanna go? We don't have to go back in there..."
Kurt shook his head. "Wasn't this Prom supposed to be about redemption? About taking away that lump in your throat from running away? If we leave now all it's gonna do is give me a lump too."
"So what are you gonna do?"
"I'm gonna go back in there, and I'm gonna get coordinated. I'm going to show them that it doesn't matter if they are yelling at me or whispering behind my back. That they. Can't. Touch. Me. They can't touch us. Or what we have."
Kurt was kneeling next to Blaine. He leaned forward, placed his hand on the back of Kurt's neck, and looked deeply into his eyes. "You are the bravest person I know. I am so proud to be with you." He pulled Kurt's head towards his and kissed him.
They eventually pulled away. Kurt smiled as he said, "Well, someone very close to me once told me to have courage."
Blaine laughed fondly at the memory. He stood up and offered Kurt his hand. "You ready for this?" he asked. Kurt nodded and they walked back into the gym, then parted as Blaine went into the crowd and Kurt went up the stage.
"Eat your heart out Kate Middleton." Kurt said. A huge smile came across Blaine's face and he started clapping at about the same time Rachel did. The clapping spread and everybody, with the exception of a few jocks, was applauding loudly.
"And now," said Principal Figgins "The tradition of the King and Queen's first dance."
Santana and Mercedes started singing 'Dancing Queen' as Kurt and Karofsky walked down to the floor.
"Now's your chance." said Kurt. "Come out. Make a difference."
The only thing Blaine heard Karofsky say as he left the dance floor was "I can't." which was perfectly fine with him. He really wasn't too comfortable with Kurt dancing with Karofsky anyways.
Kurt was left on the dance floor all alone. This was Blaine's chance. If only for one night, he could be Kurt's night in shining armor. He walked up to Kurt and held out his hand. "Excuse me." Kurt whirled around to face Blaine. "May I have this dance?"
"Yes. Yes you may." Kurt placed his hand in Blaine's and Blaine pulled him in closely and held him as they danced. "You didn't have to do this..." whispered Kurt.
"No, but I wanted to." replied Blaine as he twirled Kurt. Kurt laughed as he spun around and landed in Blaine's arms.
They spent the rest of the night wrapped in each other's arms, never tearing their gaze from each others eyes.
A/N: I know! Cheesy ending! But I couldn't resist! Like I said I'm sorry for the wait I was working on some other fanfictions and then I got a mad case of writers block. So I sat down and watched reruns of Glee on Netflix, which cured it!
