Kid!Rane for (the oh so glorious) Rane week.
It was Reed's first day at his new nursery, and he was terribly nervous. He had recently moved house, and didn't know anybody else. But still, he put on a brave face, trying to talk to the other children. He met two nice boys, Kurt and Blaine, who let him play with them. So, all in all, it had been a pretty good day.
But, being Reed, his clumsiness had to go and ruin it.
"Owww!" Reed cried, scraping his hands as he fell over. Kurt and Blaine had already left, so he was all alone. Or so he thought. Quick as a flash, a boy with messy black hair ran towards him, kneeling on the ground next to him.
"You OK?" The other boy asked.
Reed sniffled. "My hands hurt," he pouted.
"I'll make it better." The other boy said enthusiastically. The boy held Reed's hands in his own, pressing a wet kiss to each palm, before pulling Reed into a hug.
"A little bit. What's your name?"
"Shane. 'M big brother is Blaine."
"I met Blaine. He's my friend."
"Can I be your friend too?"
"...Sure. We can be friends."
Shane grinned, pulling Reed off the ground. He pressed a messy kiss to Reed's cheek before running off to find his brother, to tell him all about his new friend.
