*This is like a double Cinderella story. Klaine and Puckleberry :) I will most likely be using songs from Roger and Hammerstein's Cinderella because I love that movie and I figured that Kurt and Rachel would like to sing. I changed some songs so that they both sing them instead of like the Prince and Cinderella. You'll understand when you get to that part!
And don't believe what sensible people say
And because these daft and dewy-eyed dopes
Kurt and Rachel gazed at each other, their rags having been replaced with beautiful cloth, which felt unnatural against their abused skin. Rachel was in a light blue dress, giggling as she twirled around. Kurt was laughing softly at her and secretly admiring his own outfit, that was a dark blue to compliment his eyes.
"I still think that Noah and Blaine finding us once again and falling in love is unlikely" Santana rolled her eyes at Kurt.
"Trust yourself, Porcelain" Kurt eyed her at the nickname, but she simply smiled. "You never know what could happen."
"But it's impossible"
Santana grinned at this. "I was hoping you would say that"
"What?" Kurt and Rachel questioned her at the same time. She simply smirked and then cleared her throat a little, when she opened her mouth again, she didn't speak, but she did sing.
Impossible, for a plain yellow pumpkin to become a golden carriage.
As she sang this in a beautiful voice, she pointed at a large pumpkin, Rachel and Kurt watching in awe as sparks flew from her fingertips and hit the pumpkin, turning it into a beautiful carriage right before their eyes.
She then up behind Kurt and Rachel, gesturing towards them as she sang the next part of her little song
Impossible, for a plain country bumpkin and a prince to join in marriage,
And four white mice will never be four white horses!
At this line, Santana pointed to the three mice that were scrambling around the front lawn, looking for small scraps of food. The sparks flew out of her fingers once again and the mice turned into horses, causing Rachel to squeal with excitement as she ran over to the closet horse and started to pet it.
Such fol-der-ol and fid-dle-di dee of courses
Santana walked up to Kurt, placing an arm on his bicep, smiling softly. He was shocked to find himself grinning back at her as she continued to sing.
But the world is full of zanies and fools
Kurt chuckled and simply nodded at this, knowing it was true. His sister laughed as well as she continued to pet the horses, a content smile on her face.
Who don't believe in sensible rules
And won't believe what sensible people say.
And because these daft and dewy-eyed dopes keep building up impossible hopes,
Impossible things are happening every day.
Santana then made another gesture with her hand to Kurt, and he took this as a sign to start singing.
Rachel looked up from the horse as she heard her brother sing. She grinned when he did because she knew he was finally getting comfortable with the whole idea of having a fairy godmother.
Santana then repeated Kurt.
Santana then gestured to Rachel who grinned wildly and sang out 4 syllables perfectly.
Santana repeated this again, and then Kurt got it to sing again and after he sang out the word, Rachel did too, and then the three of them all sang out the word together.
Impossible!Santana quickly grabbed their hands and then dragged them over to the carriage, the horses following behind. Kurt got in first and slid in, taking his sister's hand to help her with her large dress as she got into the carriage. Rachel giggled as she sat across from him, continuing to clutch his hand. Kurt then took the time to sing out one line of the song softly, knowing their godmother would hear them.
It's possible! For a plain yellow pumpkin to become a golden carriage!
Rachel giggled and then sang the next line, grinning as their fairy godmother stood outside of the small window that was in their carriage. She was grinning and then started to float with them as the carriage started to move towards the castle.
It's possible! For a plain country bumpkin and a prince to join in marriage!Santana sang the next part, silvery sparks flying around her as she kept up to speed with the carriage.
And four white mice are easily turned to horses!
Such fol-der-ol and fid-dle-di dee of course, is
Quite Possible! It's possible!
Kurt: For the world is full of zanies and fools Rachel: Who don't believe in sensible rules
Impossible things are happening every day!Rachel: It's Possible!Kurt: It's Possible!Santana: It's Possible!Rachel: It's Possible!Santana: It's Possible!Kurt: It's Possible!All three: It's possible
Rachel: Who don't believe in sensible rulesSantana: And won't believe what sensible people sayAll three: And because these daft and dewy-eyed dopes keep building up impossible hopes
Kurt and Rachel's nerves began to grow as they saw the palace in their view. Rachel was still clutching at Kurt's hand and Santana then appeared inside the carriage, alarming the two siblings. "I forgot to tell you something very important!" Kurt and Rachel both looked at her, clearly confused. "I know I said I was trying not to be cliché" Kurt snorted at this and Santana rolled her eyes "But, the magic really does wear off at midnight"
"I should've known" Kurt muttered and Santana smiled.
"You still have 2 hours until that though" Santana grinned as they pulled up to the palace "So, go get your princes, before someone else catches their eye!" Santana snickered "but I'm fairly sure that they would leave any normal commoner for you two lovelies" Santana winked "I'll come by tomorrow to see how it went" And with that, she disappeared.
"I can't do this" Rachel whispered to her brother as they stood at the top of the stairs. Her hands were smoothing down the front of her dress and Kurt rolled his eyes and grasped her hands, tugging her closer. "Kurt, don't. This was a stupid idea"
"I know I don't know Santana very well, but I know that she would be angry at you if you just left now. She put a lot of work into this" Rachel sighed and leaned against a wall, breathing in deeply.
"I know, but what if they don't remember us? Then we'll just look like fools"
"Rach, it was only a week ago. They'll remember us." And then Kurt smiled, placing a hand on her shoulder. "This isn't actually Cinderella, where everyone seems to forget what everybody looks like" Kurt's smiled as he watches his sister laugh. "Now, are you ready to do this?" Rachel nodded and straightened up and they walked towards the stairs. As they descended them, everyone's eyes locked on them, causing Rachel to nudge Kurt and then speak to him quietly.
"Why are they staring at us?"
"Because we're fashionably late and we look incredible" Rachel giggled again and then her eyes locked onto a moving figure in the sea of motionless people. "Oh my!" Kurt gasped from besides her, taking another step. "Is that-"
Rachel said nothing as she held her breath, watching the man that was walking towards them. Kurt nudged her but she ignored him as they reached the bottom of stairs, just as the man stopped a few feet from the stairs. Rachel smiled shyly as she realized that this man really was Noah. Noah smiled back and then bowed, and then he grasped her hand and kissed the top.
"I was starting to think you wouldn't come" Rachel's breath caught in her throat and she was brought out of her thoughts by Kurt nudging her once more.
"We almost didn't." Noah arched an eyebrow at her. "It's a long story" She smiled softly, in a shy nature.
"Well then tell it to me as we dance" Rachel quickly looked at Kurt, obviously saddened by the thought of being separated from her brother, leaving him all alone.
"I'll be fine, Rach, go" Kurt smiled, squeezing her arm.
"Yes, Rachel, he'll be fine, especially since I just saw Blaine as I was making my way over to the two of you. I'm sure he'll find you in no time" Noah smiled politely at Kurt, who smiled back, but it faltered slightly as he looked at his sister.
"I don't care if you're a prince or not, you hurt my little sister, I'll hurt you" Rachel let out a gasp and slapped her brother softly, secretly flattered that her brother would say that, especially since he was mad at her mere hours ago.
"Kurt!" Rachel breathed and Noah simply chuckle and squeezed her hand.
"It's quite alright, I understand completely" He then turned back to Kurt with a smile "And I wouldn't possibly hurt her"
Kurt smiled and then waved them off. "Go have fun you two,"
"You go find Blaine, he's been upset all night, and I know that seeing you will cheer him up" Kurt chuckled and nodded as they went their separate ways. Kurt looked back at the young couple just in time to catch Rachel's nervous eye. He gave her a reassuring look, which caused her to grin in response.
He turned back around and before he knew what was happening, he was bumping into someone. He fell down and then he looked up, his eyes apologetic. "I'm terribly sor-" He was not expecting the person he ran into to be Blaine. Blaine had his beautiful hazel eyes on him, a bright smile on his face. Kurt threw him a shy smile and took the hand that was offered to him. Blaine pulled him to his feet the bright smile that plastered his face, never leaving.
"Boy, am I glad to see you" Blaine breathed out and Kurt couldn't help the flames that flared in Kurt's cheeks. Blaine's eyes flickered around and then darted back to Kurt's. "Come on, I don't like people staring at me" Kurt nodded quickly, not liking all of the attention either. Blaine clutched his hand tightly and pulled him through the crowd, Kurt not making any eye contact with anyone, especially when he saw his step family's eyes on him. Would they recognize him?
He couldn't worry about it too much because before he could give it another concerned thought, Blaine had pulled him into the crisp night air. Kurt shivered a little, but he knew that it had nothing to do with the temperature. Blaine smiled at him and then pulled him over by a large fountain. They sat down on the edge and Kurt watched as men and women twirled around inside, obviously getting over the two new arrivals.
"What are you thinking about?" Blaine questioned him, drawing random patterns on Kurt's palm.
"I've never been to a ball before" Blaine looked at him in shock. "Don't seem so shocked, you sort of met my step-mother."
"Why didn't you just sneak out?" Blaine questioned, his head tilting to the side and Kurt couldn't help but think of a small puppy as he did so.
"We never really knew about the balls" Kurt sighed "And when we did, there was a possibility that we could've snuck put, but we wouldn't have had anything to wear. We've been wearing the same rags for years"
"And where'd you get the clothes that you two are wearing right now?" Kurt looked down at his blue tuxedo and smiled to himself before turning to Blaine, a twinkle in his eye as he responded with a witty remark.
"Magic" Blaine raised an eyebrow "God, that was so clever, I just wish you knew what I meant" Blaine kept his eyebrow raised, clearly still confused "I would tell you right now, but you'd think I was crazy…because I'm pretty sure I'm still dreaming" Blaine still didn't get it and Kurt went to open his mouth again but he was cut off by a very familiar voice breaking through the soft silence of the night.
"I don't get why he was so drawn to her" His step sister Sugar drawled and Kurt looked at Blaine, panicking. Blaine understood and grasped his hands, running off to duck behind some bushes that would conceal them. Kurt breathed a sigh of relief as the two of them poked their heads over the top of the bush, wondering if they noticed the rush of movement. Kurt rolled his eyes as he realized they couldn't. Because frankly they're too stupid. "Sure, her dress is pretty, but she isn't worth the prince's time" Kurt scoffed and then felt Blaine pat his back.
"You know, she looks awfully familiar!" Harmony exclaimed and Kurt rolled his eyes. How daft could one person be? "I've seen her weird lips before"
Kurt sunk down, not wanting to even look at them anymore, and apparently Blaine had the same idea because he sunk down into the grass at the same time, bumping into each other at the same time. They both chuckled softly as they murmured their apologies. Then, Kurt turned his head to look at the man sitting beside him and realized how close they were. Kurt's breath caught in his throat as Blaine's eyes flickered to his eyes and then his lips. He silently asked Kurt if it would be okay and Kurt nodded wordlessly. And he felt his heart beat quicken as Blaine leaned closer, only centimeters away from his lips…
"Oh! There you are Kurt-" Kurt groaned as he looked up and saw Rachel and Noah standing above them. Rachel had her hands on her hips, a sly smirk on her face. "Wow, I'm surprised you guys are just now starting to kiss" Kurt huffed and Blaine stood up, holding out a hand to Kurt so he could pull him up for the second time tonight.
"What are you doing out here Rachel?" Kurt glared
"I saw you come out here, and I really need to talk to you" Kurt sighed.
"Well, I was talking to Noah about how we've got nothing but rags, and then he asked how I got this dress…" Rachel gave her brother a look. "Should we tell them…? I mean, it's a little out there-"
Kurt snorted and walked away from the grass and onto the pavement. "It's a little out there? Rach, I still don't completely believe it" Kurt ignored the stares of confusion to the two other men. "And besides, are we even allowed to tell?"
"She didn't say-"
"I'm not telling them, you are" Kurt said sternly.
"Why do I have to?"
"Because you probably care more about it. I'm still apprehensive."
"You're just saying that because you're trying to seem less crazy!" Kurt shrugged "Give me another reason of why I should tell them?" Rachel questioned "Because you're last one was trash" Kurt's eyes darkened as he stared at his little sister. This caused Rachel to shiver under his gaze and take a step towards Noah. "Why are you looking at me like that?"
Blaine placed a hand on Kurt's shoulder, but he didn't ease up. "Calm down Kurt, Noah and I really don't need to know where you got the clothes. It's fine" Noah nodded and then wrapped an arm around Rachel's waist. Kurt continued to stare her down, knowing she was bound to figure it out sooner or later.
"I don't care about that. She's pretty much telling me that she owes me nothing, when she owes me everything"
"Kurt-" Rachel's eyes widened when she finally understood. "Y-you said that we were okay. You sang with me! You hugged me!"
"That doesn't mean I'm not still upset, Rachel"
"Kurt" Rachel said her voice cracking. "I'm so sorry, I-"
"Let's just spend some time apart tonight…I need time to think" Rachel stared at him, big brown eyes filled with tears, but she nodded anyway. She grasped Noah's hand and they started towards the palace again, but Rachel stopped in her tracks, right before they got into the castle.
"I'll see you at 5 'til 12," Kurt nodded and then turned towards Blaine, knowing his sister was now gone.
"I'm sorry. Me and Rachel fight a lot. I blame it on the fact that we really only have each other" Kurt then smiled. "I am sorry though, you know, that you have had to witness it so much, even though we've really only seen each other twice"
"Don't be sorry. I understand. Noah and I are just cousins and we fight pretty often. We don't get out much though, so we really only have each other to talk to"
Kurt frowned. "God, it was like you just described my life" Blaine smiled sadly at him and clasped his hand tightly. "Please don't look at me like that, it's not like it's your fault that me and Rach have had a couple not-so-fun moments in the past"
"Kurt, you're a servant to your own family"
"Step family" Kurt corrected, forcing a smile. "And it's not that bad…" Blaine gave him a look, causing Kurt to raise an eyebrow at him in confusion. "What?"
"You're lying" Kurt let out a huff and Blaine chuckled. "I know you are, so don't lie"
"Fine" Kurt sighed "It sucks, but me and Rachel manage, we're pretty tough"
"Oh, I don't doubt that" Kurt smiled "So, if I'm not overstepping, may I ask why you're mad at Rachel?"
"You're not overstepping, I'd just rather not talk about it…besides Rachel and Noah kind of interrupted us" Blaine grinned and wrapped his arms around Kurt's waist.
"And what did they interrupt?"
"I think you know…"
Blaine hummed softly. "Mmm…I might have an idea…"
"Are you alright?" Noah asked Rachel softly.
Rachel forced a smile and nodded. "Fine. Why?"
"Rachel, I would appreciate it if you didn't lie to me…"
Rachel sighed. "I'm sorry…I just hate when Kurt's mad at me. I feel like I'm disappointing him whenever he gives me that look. He practically had to raise me, being the older sibling, and sometimes I think he blames himself for not like…doing a better job…"
"I'm sure, it's not like that. You guys just spend a lot of time together and probably get one each other's last nerve. Blaine and I do that all the time." Noah wrapped his around her thin waist, pulling her close. "It'll all turn out okay; Kurt probably just needs to cool down." Rachel sighed and leaned into him.
"I guess you're right" Rachel bit her lip softly, "But what if he stays mad at me? I did something really bad and-"
Noah hugged her tightly, cutting her off. "Rachel, it'll be okay. He's your brother, the only real family you have left. You guys will be fine. I promise."
