Part 2

Author's Note: Yeah, I thought this fanfic was complete, too. :P But, wow, here's another chapter! This was prompted in a review by jetsonastro24, so here you go! I'm not sure whether I will continue with a bunch of them…it depends on how much you guys like them, I guess. Feel free to prompt, and if it eats me up like the last one, then I might write it. But, there's also the thing that they will all start to sound kinda the same…but, if you guys don't mind, then neither do I.

Oh! And, if you like Klaine and Cooper and general wonderfulness, you HAVE to read this fanfic called "Brothers" by hopewithfeathers. It's so wonderful and it's one of my favorite fanfictions of all time, so go read it!

On with the story...

Ring ring…ring ring…ring ring…ring ring…

"Hey there, you've reached the voicemail of the one and only Cooper Anderson. Leave a message and I'll get back to you ASAP…unless I don't like you. Then I'll ignore your message. Have a great day!" beeeep

"Oh, um…hey, Coop. It's Blaine. Um…you know what, never mind. You don't need to call me back, it's okay. You're busy, so…yeah. Bye."

Ring ring…ring-

"Hello?"

"Hey, Blaine. Sorry I didn't answer! I got your message and you sounded upset, kiddo. What's wrong?"

"I can hear lots of voices and music, are you at a party?"

"Yeah, sorry. Just wait; I'll go somewhere where we can hear each-other better, 'kay?"

"No, Coop, please don't bother over me. I'm fine—"

"You don't sound fine, Blaine. I know the voice of someone who's been crying."

"…"

"There. Now I can hear myself think. What's up, little bro?"

"Where are you?"

"Jeremy's 25th birthday party. It's getting kind of crazy. But, don't worry, I'm a designated driver, so you don't have to listen to any drunken ramblings...this time."

"Oh yeah, like last month when you called me."

"Yeah…sorry about that."

"Naw, it was okay. You mostly just went on and on about how short I am…but also that you love me, so…"

"I do love you, Squirt."

"Yeah, I know… But when I asked where you were, I didn't mean Who's party are you attending?, I meant Where is this quiet spot you've found?. Just out of curiosity."

"Oh! I'm in the bathroom."

"That's pleasant."

"Naw, it's okay. No-one's barfed in here yet."

"Charming."

"Now, quit stalling, mister. You're trying to do what you always do; change the subject so that I'll forget the fact that you called me sounding kind of worked up about something."

"I'm sorry for spilling all my problems to you."

"When has it ever bothered me, Blaine?"

"Well, you've never said—"

"Shush. You know I don't mind. Now, what happened?"

"…it's Kurt."

"Of course it's Kurt."

"…"

"Come on, kiddo, you're worrying me. Just tell me what's wrong."

"…You know how Kurt's NYADA callback is coming up?"

"Mhm."

"That means…that means he'll be going to New York soon, Coop. He'll be going to New York, to a new life with new people…and I'll be stuck in Lima! In a school that I switched to only for him. I've always said that McKinley is where my heart is…where Kurt is…and now my heart's gonna go far away and I can't follow! H-he's the love of my life, Coop, and I don't want to lose him, but I am losing him! And I just want us to—"

"Woah, woah, slow down, B. Calm down, buddy, don't cry."

"I'm sorry."

"Don't be sorry. Have you told Kurt how you're feeling?"

"…no."

"Well, maybe you—"

"That's not all of it."

"What?"

"That's not the whole reason why I'm upset…well, it was at first, but then…"

"You don't have to say it all at once, kiddo, take a breath, calm down a little."

"…"

"Is that better? A little easier to speak now, right?"

"Cooper…Kurt cheated on me."

"…"

"…Coop?"

"He did what?"

"Well, I- …It's complicated."

"You'd better explain before I fly down there and—"

"Cooper, please don't…"

"…You're right. I'm sorry, Blaine. It doesn't do anyone any good for me to get angry. Tell me what happened, Squirt. Get it off your chest."

"Okay, so, um…well, I was so worked up about thinking of Kurt's impending move to New York that I—…well, I started to distance myself from him. You know, prepare myself for when I didn't have him anymore."

"Oh, Blaine…"

"And then Kurt, he met this guy at a music store…and they hit it off, I guess. Exchanged numbers. And, I didn't know anything about it."

"Kurt was seeing this guy behind your back?"

"Well, yeah, kinda, I mean… Well, he wasn't, like, going on dates with him and stuff…"

"I know I've only met the guy once, but Kurt didn't seem like the cheating type to me. I'm kind of disappointed in him, actually. No, I'm pissed, but…okay, I'm calm now. What was he doing with this guy, then?"

"Well, one night we were hanging out and his phone kept going off while he was out of the room. And I didn't know who was texting him so many times, and I was kinda worried that maybe someone was in trouble or something…but it was just messages from this guy…Chandler."

"Chandler. What a stupid name."

"Cooper…"

"Yeah, yeah, I know. Keep going."

"Well, this guy had been sending Kurt dozens of flirty texts for days…and Kurt hadn't done anything to get him to stop…"

"What kind of flirty texts?"

"Mostly just stupid puns."

"Stupid."

"And then…uh, Kurt came back and I confronted him about this Chandler…and Kurt said that the reason why he hadn't told him off is because he likes the way Chandler makes him feel. I'm not enough for him, anymore, I guess."

"Hey, none of that. You're perfect, B. You know that, right?"

"I-I guess…"

"Okay, is that all that happened, or— Will you please stop knocking! This bathroom is obviously occupied right now! Find another one to puke in! …Sorry about that, B."

"It's okay…um, so Kurt and I argued. And, uh, we're doing Whitney Houston in glee this week, so I sang 'It's Not Right but It's Okay' to him glee club today."

"Snap."

"Yeah…except it didn't make me feel any better, Coop. It just made me feel even more alone… And that's…that's the story, I guess."

"Well…it wasn't as bad as I expected."

"Really?"

"Yeah, I mean, of course it's bad and you're obviously hurting, Blaine, I'm not undermining that. But…I think you guys just need to talk it out."

"I tried to tell him that!"

"Yeah, but have you spoken to him since the argument?"

"…not really."

"Blaine, I know you. When you feel really upset about something, you try to distance yourself from it. But that won't make it go away. Which is why I'm really glad that you talk about your feelings because, if you didn't, you'd probably explode. And that would make a mess."

"You're right…"

"Listen, like I've told you a million times before, you just need to tell Kurt how you feel. …And also accept that you're a tiny bit at fault here, as well."

"What? But I didn't—"

"Did you ever think that maybe you distancing yourself could have hurt Kurt a little? I'm not saying that him finding this Chandler was justified, but it's not because you're not enough for him. It's because you've been pulling away."

"Yeah…I guess… And I used to text and call Sebastian a lot before; I shouldn't really throw stones…"

"Seeing both sides really takes maturity, Blaine. But you are also completely right to feel hurt and wronged, okay? You guys need to talk about it. Because, you want to get over this fight and get back together, right?"

"Of course! I just don't know if we can—"

"Just talk to him, Blaine. Get it all out in the open. And then see what happens. That's all you can do. But keeping secrets is what got you both in trouble in the first place. Remember that."

"Cooper, when did you get so wise?"

"Oh, I'm not— Yes! This bathroom is occupied! God… Ugh, fine! Yeah, okay? Just wait a second, will you? Hey, listen B, I gotta go, I'm sorry."

"No, that's okay. You go back to your party, I don't mind. You've already helped a lot, anyway."

"Okay…just, call me, alright? Let me know how everything goes. I'm here for you, no matter what."

"Okay, I will. Love you, Coop."

"Love you too, Squirt."

Author's Second Note: I do realize that I'm making Cooper sound like a therapist in these things, and he might be OOC, sorry about that. But I picture Blaine as being someone who always wants to talk with someone when he has problems, to distract him and also for the person to help and make him feel better. His parents won't listen so he usually talks to Kurt, but when he has problems about Kurt he talks to his brother. So, I hope you just accept my version of Blaine and, in turn, my version of a reasonable, comforting Cooper.

Also, I really like the use of an ellipsis, don't I?

Anyway, this A/N is wayyy too long. Review?

Take care.
