Seventh Prompt Request :: Anonymous Requested : Kurt finds a puppy one night caroling and calls the number on the tag to a Blaine Anderson.
If you ignore the fact that it's not Christmas, I thought this prompt came out really really cute. I simply cannot resist cuteness, can anybody? I didn't think so.
This one isn't too short but it's not that long either but hope you still enjoy :)
.: Puppy :.
"All right, we all have our parts and arrangements. Are there any questions?" Rachel Berry asked in her instructive voice on Christmas Eve, outside in the snow, while it is still snowing. Kurt Hummel sighed and spoke.
"Yeah, why are we caroling? And more importantly, why are you here? You don't celebrate Christmas," Kurt asked in a tired albeit curious voice. Rachel sighed before giving a brief glance to Finn. Kurt rolled his eyes.
Finn and Rachel broke-up, again. He didn't know all the details but Rachel did something to piss Finn off and rather than talk about it, he just broke-up with her. Either way, they weren't together anymore and it seemed like Rachel was doing everything she could to spend time with him. Kurt stopped trying to understand his step-brother's and his on again off again relationship with one, Rachel Berry.
"Call it dedication, Kurt. Obviously caroling was not a good idea for in between classes, but people love carolers on Christmas Eve. So, let's do this. Santana you'll start off..." Kurt watched everybody roll their eyes and walk away from Rachel. Kurt walked behind as the New Directions started singing Winter Wonderland – that wasn't his favorite one.
Truth be told, Kurt wasn't really that into Christmas anymore. It was cute when he was younger but now that he was older, it wasn't as special. He loved his dad and step-mother and, he won't admit it out loud just yet, but he loved his step-brother. It was going to be their first Christmas and he was sure it was going to be a nice one but he just wasn't feeling the Christmas spirit.
He heard Rachel start singing some other Christmas song – what song it was he wasn't sure, he wasn't paying attention anymore. Maybe it was a good thing they were in a neighborhood where nobody knew them. Kurt heard a light cry further down the sidewalk. Kurt stopped for a moment and he heard it again. He looked forward to see a dog, a puppy actually. He was whimpering as it walked down the sidewalk toward Kurt. He couldn't tell what kind of puppy it was but it was just too cute.
Kurt bent down and held out his hand to the little one. The puppy stopped whimpering and jogged over to him and started licking Kurt's hand. It was wearing a bright pink collar and a tag. At least it's a sign that the little thing belonged to someone.
"Hey there, are you lost?" Kurt said sweetly to the puppy. He gently picked up the puppy from the cold sidewalk and stood on his feet. The puppy started licking Kurt's face frantically. Normally this would not do but the little thing was just too cute and adorable. Kurt took a look at the tag and read the writing.
"Chloe," Kurt read, "that's a cute name. But I bet someone misses you." The puppy made some sort of noise before Kurt turned the tag over and read the rest of the writing.
If found, please, please, call Blaine Anderson.
Kurt read the phone number before he released the tag and pulled out his phone to call this Blaine Anderson. He dialed the number, while Chloe continued to lick his cheek, and pressed the call button. After the second ring, there was frantic voice on the other line.
"Um...hi, Blaine Anderson?" Kurt asked into his phone.
"Yes! Yes! This is Blaine Anderson!" The boy sounded almost relieved.
"This is Kurt. I found Chloe," Kurt said happily. There was a loud sigh and a bit of chuckling on the other end.
"Oh my God! Thank you so much! I swear I turned around for one second and she just wanders off. I've only had her for a few weeks and she's my baby!" That was too cute.
"She's adorable. Well she can't have wandered off too far. I'm not really familiar with this neighborhood," Kurt admitted into the phone and started walking forward.
"Oh. If I can ask, what are you doing in a neighborhood you're not familiar with?" the boy asked curiously.
"I was with a group of friends. We are a glee club and I guess to kind of show that we aren't entirely despised, our supposed leader thought it would be a good idea to go caroling in a place nobody knows us," Kurt answered. Chloe started licking one of her paws.
"Oh wow! I think I just heard them not too long ago. A group of kids and one of them was a brunette, kind of bossy sounding," Blaine asked. Kurt laughed lightly.
"That would be them," Kurt answered. He looked further down the road and New Directions was completely out of sight.
"They were here not too long ago. Do you sing too or did you just tag along?" Blaine asked. "Oh! My house is the one at the very end of the road. I think we are the only ones with very little Christmas lighting." Kurt kept that in mind and thought he saw the house he described.
"I sing too, though I don't get to really showcase my talent as much as bossy brunette girl," Kurt joked. Blaine laughed lightly. Kurt liked that sound.
"Why don't you do it now?" Blaine suggested. Kurt had stopped walking. He looked down at Chloe who just looked at him with adorable puppy eyes.
"You're not serious?" Kurt responded.
"Totally. And if you want, I'll even sing with you. I'm in a glee club at my school too. And the way you sound...I think you would sound really nice," is it possible to flirt over the phone.
"I'm a guy, just so you know," Kurt didn't know why he said that but Blaine chuckled lightly.
"I know you are. So, come on, sing. Chloe loves hearing people sing, be aware, she'll keep kissing you." Kurt laughed and continued to walk down the sidewalk. He looked around and saw that he was the only one outside. Kurt took a deep breath and thought of the first Christmas song that popped up.
Kurt sang into the phone in a low melodic voice.
All is calm...
All is bright...
Blaine sang the next part. Kurt hadn't expected that but the boy on the other side of the phone sounded...incredible. After he sang the last part, Kurt joined him.
Round yon virgin mother and child...
Holy infant so tender and mild...
Kurt was getting closer and closer to the house at the end of the street. It had started to snow again. He could feel Chloe give him a few more licks but she was starting to feel cold. He was singing with a boy he was about to meet for the first time. He didn't know why he started with that song but he did and Blaine was singing with him.
He still didn't see his friends but that was okay. He came across a big house with very little lighting and there was someone peaking out the window. He didn't get a good look at it but Chloe seemed to be getting excited when she saw the familiar house.
Sleep in heavenly peace...
Sleep in heavenly peace...
Both boys said at the same time in different ranges as the front door opened and closed. Kurt saw Blaine Anderson, with a coat and a red and blue scarf around his neck. The phone was attached to his ear and Chloe immediately saw him and struggled from Kurt's grasp. Kurt ended the call first and put Chloe on the ground and watched her try to run to Blaine. The sidewalk was a little icy so the little dog nearly slid to Blaine.
"Chloe! Oh I was so worried!" Blaine bent down and picked up the excited puppy. Kurt laughed lightly as the puppy licked Blaine's face. The boy was...quite handsome. He walked closer to Blaine and saw that he was a little shorter than Kurt and had curly hair.
"I think she's glad to be home," Kurt said. Blaine looked at the boy as he held onto Chloe.
"And I'm so glad she is home," Blaine cooed to the puppy. "And by the way, you sound amazing. Next time I see your friends, I'll give them hell for not letting you showcase more," Blaine added. Kurt's cheeks flushed.
"Thanks, you sound really good too," Kurt responded. Blaine smiled as he continued to pet Chloe on the head.
"Thank you. I can't say thank you enough for finding Chloe. I have wanted a dog for so long and when I get one, I lose her the first few weeks I have her," Blaine gave Chloe a kiss on the head.
"I think she'll forgive you for it," Kurt gave the dog a light stroke on her fur. Blaine looked at Kurt and paused before he spoke again.
"I would really like to take you for coffee or something. There's a shop down the road that is still open at this hour and they like Chloe so she can come," did this count as being asked out?
"Oh, you don't have to do that," Kurt said, because that's what people say when someone tries to thank them right? Even though the idea of going out with the really cute boy with the really cute dog was...rather exciting, it was the polite thing wasn't it?
"I insist. Please," Blaine pleaded. Well, how can someone say no to now two pairs of puppy eyes look at Kurt like that? Kurt just laughed and let out a breath.
"Okay," Kurt said.
"Great! And this place has the best cookies ever. They give Chloe a little doggie treat too," Blaine said as he took a hold of Kurt's arm without realizing what he was doing. The two boys walked further down the sidewalk with Blaine holding onto Chloe.
"I could definitely go for some cookies," Kurt remarked. Blaine smiled.
"So, tell me about yourself Kurt," Blaine started the conversation. Kurt smiled. Christmas was suddenly not so bad anymore.
Told you it was cute and fluffy :)
