So here we go, the epilogue for I'll Always Be There... Enjoy!


The year is 2017. Kurt turns to look at the man sitting beside him, smiling as Blaine drove the car down a familiar road for both of them. It had been the best day of their lives. After Ohio had announced marriage equality to all the year before, a date had been set. That date was today, and the boys had just been married in an actual ceremony, legally, just like any other couple. It was the happiest day of their lives. Kurt watched Blaine and knew that without a doubt there was no one he would rather spend the rest of his life with.

Everyone had been in attendance. The New Directions, including the also recently married Mrs. And Mrs. Santana Lopez, The Warblers, Burt and Carole, and Blaine's Brother Cooper, who had flown in four years previously for another brief visit and never left. Also in the audience was Blaine's mother. The two were trying to build up some sort of relationship, and although Blaine would never fully get the trust back that he had once had in Cindy, he had admitted that he still wanted her in his life. Not there however, was Blaine's father, who was still rotting away in the state prison on numerous charges including attempted murder and child abuse. Blaine hadn't missed him being there once, as Burt had become his true father. Burt was more of a father to Blaine than Daniel Anderson had been in his son's entire life.

The ceremony had been wonderful, perfectly planned by Kurt, as if Blaine had expected anything less. Santana and Brittney had sang a touching number, then the whole group had surprised them by singing Perfect to the boys for their first dance, planned in secret by Finn.

Kurt squeezed Blaine's hand across the center console as they pulled up in front of Dalton Academy for Boys, shooting him a confused look.

"Dalton? This is the surprise?" Blaine just laughed and kissed Kurt on his cheek.

"No silly. Stop guessing. Just come on." Blaine led Kurt into the school and they held hands, walking through the familiar halls and rooms. Memories bombarded them each as they remembered the times they had shared here.

Blaine catching Kurt doodling their names in a notebook, then pretending he hadn't seen

Kurt singing Blackbird

Blaine telling Kurt for the first time about his bullies

Kurt felt Blaine stop, jerking him from his thoughts. He felt Blaine cover his eyes before he had a chance to take in his surroundings.

"Close your eyes Kurt. Don't open them until you hear it." Kurt closed his eyes and felt Blaine's hand slip from his. He instantly missed the warmth and familiarness, and felt the uncertainty set in. Kurt breathed in deeply, waiting for Blaine to reappear when he felt a set of lips press softly to his cheek, and a guitar strumming. Kurt opened his eyes and met Blaine's. Blaine was below him, strumming softly a tune that sounded familiar, but he couldn't place where it was from. But when Blaine opened his mouth, Kurt smiled.

I think you're pretty
Without any makeup on
I think you're funny
When you tell the punchline wrong
I knew you got me
So you let your walls come down, down

Before you met me
I was alright, but things
Were kinda heavy
You brought me to life
Now every February
You'll be my Valentine, Valentine

Let's just talk all through the night
There's no need to rush
We can dance, until we die
You and I, will be young forever

Kurt smiled at the change of lyrics. Hearing Blaine sing it without his backup Warblers made it that much more special, turning it from the first song Kurt had heard Blaine sing to something even more special. Blaine's voice rang out and Kurt smiled at his husband. Oh, how it felt so good to be able to call Blaine his husband, finally, after all these years.

You make me feel
Like I'm livin' a
Teenage dream
The way you turn me on
I can't sleep
Let's run away and
Don't ever look back,
Don't ever look back

My heart stops
When you look at me
Just one touch
Now baby I believe
This is real
So take a chance and
Don't ever look back,
Don't ever look back

When you're around me,
Life's like a movie scene
I wasn't happy,
Until you became my queen
I finally found you,
My missing puzzle piece
I'm complete

Kurt finally took his eyes from Blaine and looked around him, gasping as he figured it out. They were on the staircase leading towards the senior commons. This was the place where they had first met. Kurt smiled, knowing how much thought Blaine had put into this. This was the place where Kurt had reached out and tapped a random shoulder, not realizing that it would lead to his soul mate. But Kurt thanked the fates for allowing him to call the beautiful boy in front of him his, legally, rightfully, and forever.

Let's just talk all through the night
There's no need to rush
We can dance, until we die
You and I, will be young forever

You make me feel
Like I'm livin' a
Teenage dream
The way you turn me on
I can't sleep
Let's run away and
Don't ever look back,
Don't ever look back

My heart stops
When you look at me
Just one touch
Now baby I believe
This is real
So take a chance and
Don't ever look back,
Don't ever look back

I'mma get your heart racing
If that's what you need,
In this teenage dream tonight
Let you rest your head on me,
If that's what you need,
In this teenage dream tonight, tonight, tonight
Tonight

Yoooouuu
You make me feel
Like I'm livin' a
Teenage dream
The way you turn me on
I can't sleep
Let's run away and
Don't ever look back,
Don't ever look back

And my heart stops
When you look at me
Just one touch
Now baby I believe
This is real
So take a chance and
Don't ever look back,
Don't ever look back

I'mma get your heart racing
If that's what you need,
In this teenage dream tonight
Let you rest your head on me,
If that's what you need,
In this teenage dream tonight, tonight, tonight.

By the end, Kurt had tears racing down his cheeks and he pulled Blaine into his arms, pressing his lips firmly against his husband's. When they pulled apart, Kurt nodded.

"I love you. So much Blaine. Thank you for never letting me go." Kurt laid his head on Blaine's shoulder, his arms still wrapped snuggly around his husband's neck.

"I wouldn't dare. You are my everything." Blaine replied simply.

"Forever?" Kurt asked, holding Blaine's cheeks in between his hands.

"And ever." Blaine promised, kissing Kurt's lips again softly, both boys hearing the applause behind them as they were joined by all of Dalton, cheering them on for fighting for the equality they deserved, and for the love they knew was worth the fight.


AHHHH! It's over! I'm actually decently sad now. Which is why I'll be updating a few other things pretty soon. I'm already halfway finished with a new oneshot, and I've got notes down for the new part in Kurt Says Goodbye.

Onto a special something-or-another! The winner of my challenge last chapter to find the ChrisColfer line was Writing Memories! I will be messaging you soon to get details for your story. Congrats and keep writing!

I love all of you and it's been a pleasure writing for you!

Always Remember to Smile!
