Chapter 9

Rachel and Santana were sitting in the living room chatting with Liam when Kurt and Adam got back to Liam's apartment.

After everyone said "Hello" to each other, Kurt said, "Before we head to Kurt, I have some new information about Blaine to share. Adam and I think we all need to discuss it before we head to court so we can decide how we want to proceed with the restraining order."

"What is it, Kurt?" Rachel asked.

"Blaine's brother Cooper called me this morning looking for Blaine," Kurt replied. "Coop told me that Blaine has a personality disorder, and hasn't taken his meds at all since he left Lima last week. His family doesn't think that Blaine has taken his meds regularly since I moved to New York."

"I always knew there was something wrong with that bastard," Santana said. "The way he just needed everyone to love and admire him was really creepy. One time, he wouldn't let me get into my car after school until I told him how nice he looked in those hideous red flood pants that he loved to wear. And what was with the bowties and vests? He dressed like his mother would dress a three year old to go to church on Easter Sunday."

Kurt shuddered a bit as Santana ripped into Blaine.

"And don't get me started on the hair gel," Santana continued.

"Santana, please let it go," Adam said. "Please show some sensitivity for Kurt here. He dated Blaine for a year and a half. And some compassion for Blaine, too. Clearly he has issues that are beyond his control."

"Thanks, sweetie," Kurt said, with a grateful look towards Adam. "Anyways, with this information, I think we need to be even more cautious of Blaine. Who knows what he is capable of? I'm sorry to involve all of you in this. I don't want any of you to get hurt, nor do I want to get Blaine to get hurt."

"Your safety is most important to me, love," Adam said. "I don't want you to get hurt."

Liam said, "You are welcome to stay here as long as you need to, kids."

Kurt said, "Liam, you have been a so kind and supportive to us. I appreciate you giving us a place to stay, but I think we need to get home to Bushwick. I would like to go home tonight. I was bullied for two years in high school. I lived in fear, and didn't feel safe in my own school. I'm not going to let Blaine make me feel uncomfortable in my home."

"You didn't tell me that you were bullied, Kurt," Adam said. "I really wish that you would stay here or at my apartment until we know what's going on with Blaine, but I'll support your decision if you want to go home."

"I just feel like it's what I need to do, Adam," Kurt said.

"I want to go back to Bushwick, too," Rachel said. "It's great here, but the loft is our home."

Liam said, "Well, remember the offer is open for you to come back here any time, kids. It's been nice having so much activity here this weekend."

"Thanks, Liam," Kurt said.

"I just hope he'll leave us alone when we have the restraining order," Rachel said.

"Hopefully Cooper will find him and get him into treatment," Kurt said. "Should we head to court now?"

"Yes, let's go," Adam replied.

They went to the courthouse, and all of them were able to get emergency restraining orders against Blaine.

When Kurt checked his phone when they got out of the courthouse, in addition to the string of calls from Blaine, he also had a message from Cooper.

"Kurt, this is Cooper Anderson," the message said. "I am at the airport, and I need your address. I really want to find Blaine and get him home. I'm going to hop in a cab as soon as I hear from you. Please call me."

Kurt said, "Cooper called. He's at the airport. He wants to stop by the loft, and he wants to find Blaine and bring him back to Ohio."

"Are you all right with seeing him, Kurt?" Adam asked.

"Yeah," Kurt replied. "I would like to do what I can to help him find Blaine so that he can get him home and in treatment for his issues."

"OK, let's go back to Bushwick, then," Adam said.

Kurt called Cooper as they walked towards the Bushwick loft, and gave him the address to the Bushwick loft.

Rachel said, "Is anyone else looking around for Blaine? I'm just waiting for him to pop out of a doorway or from behind a parked car."

"It's smart to be alert," Adam said. "Though he hasn't gotten violent towards any of you, we know that he is mentally unstable, and anything can make him snap."

"I don't think he'll hurt us," Kurt said.

"I'll go all Lima Heights on him if he tries anything," Santana snapped.

When they got to the loft, they noticed that the door to their apartment was ajar.

"Do you think Blaine's in there?" Rachel asked.

"He could be," Kurt replied. He peeked through the door and said, "Oh my god."

"What is it, love?" Adam asked.

"He's in there, but it doesn't even look like him," Kurt said. He slowly slid the door open so everyone can see Blaine.

Blaine was sitting on the couch strumming a guitar. He looked and smelled like he hadn't showered in a week. His normally perfectly gelled hair was unkempt and dirty, with his frizzy curls messy and in his eyes. He was wearing the same clothes he had been wearing when he was in the apartment last week. The floor of the apartment was littered with Coke cans, pop tart wrappers, candy wrappers, and crumbs.

Adam said, "Rachel, Santana, why don't you go wait outside? And please call 911."

"You can Kurt should come too," Rachel said. "He doesn't look stable at all."

"I'm not going anywhere," Kurt said. "I need to make sure he stays here until Cooper gets here. I don't want him to run so we can't find him. We need to make sure that he goes with Cooper so that he can get treatment, and hopefully leave us alone. He doesn't even seem to realize we're here."

"I'm not leaving you alone with him," Adam said. He took Kurt's hand.

Kurt squeezed Adam's hand and said, "Thank you."

"I'm not letting that crazy ass gel boy get anywhere near Kurt," Santana snapped.

Blaine looked up and saw them all standing there. He said, "Kurt, baby, you've come back to me. I knew you would."

Kurt said, "Blaine, your brother is on your way here to see you. He wants you to go home."

"My home is with you, Kurt," Blaine said. "You know it. I know it. Everyone knows it."

"We aren't together anymore, Blaine," Kurt said. "You need help."

Adam whispered, "Rachel, Santana, please call 911 and go downstairs to wait for the police. I don't want to risk you two getting hurt."

"I'm staying with you and Kurt," Rachel said, as she dialed 911 on her cell phone.

"I'm here to stay too, Dr. Who," Santana said.

Blaine said, "Why are you holding his hand, Kurt? You should only hold my hand."

Kurt looked at Adam and said, "I don't want to agitate him. I'm going to let go of your hand."

"OK," Adam replied.

Kurt squeezed Adam's hand and then let go of it. He said, "Blaine, you know we broke up months ago. I'm with Adam now."

Blaine said, "We're meant to be together forever, Kurt. You know that. I've been practicing a song to sing for you all weekend long. Do you want to hear it?"

Kurt didn't say anything.

"Listen," Blaine said. He started to strum the guitar, and sang:

"Every breath you take

Every move you make

Every bond you break

Every step you take

I'll be watching you

"Every single day

Every word you say

Every game you play

Every night you stay

I'll be watching you

"Oh can't you see

You belong to me

How my poor heart aches

With every step you take

"Every move you make

Every vow you break

Every smile you fake

Every claim you stake

I'll be watching you."

Kurt said, "Blaine, please stop singing." He shuddered a bit, clearly getting more frightened, as his eyes welled with tears.

Adam gently rubbed Kurt's back.

Blaine continued to singing:

"Since you've gone I've been lost without a trace

I dream at night, I can only see your face

I look around but it's you I can't replace

I feel so cold and I long for your embrace

I keep calling baby baby please

"Oh can't you see

You belong to me

How my poor heart aches

With every step you take."

"What the hell is going on here?"

Everyone turned and saw Cooper standing behind them.

Kurt said, "Coop."

Blaine said, "Cooper, I'm singing to Kurt. Kurt likes when I sing to him."

Cooper slowly approached Blaine and said, "Blaine, brother, you and Kurt broke up months ago. You need to come home with me."

"This is my home," Blaine said. "I'm going to live here with Kurt. We belong together. Just me and Kurt."

Cooper said, "Blaine, we need to get you home. Mom and dad are worried about you. And you need to take your medication."

"No," Blaine said. "Kurt will take care of me, and I will take care of him."

"We aren't together anymore, Blaine," Kurt said. "You need to go home with Cooper. You don't belong here. I am with Adam." He took Adam's hand.

"No, you aren't with him," Blaine snapped. "You are with me. We are supposed to be together. And you need to keep your hands off my man, bastard." He darted at Adam and punched him in the face

Adam fell back against the wall from the force of Blaine's punch, slamming his head against the brick wall. He fell to the ground and Blaine jumped on him.

"Blaine, stop it," Kurt shouted.

Cooper grabbed Blaine and pulled him away from Adam.

Kurt knelt down beside Adam, and said, "Adam, are you OK, honey?"

"I will be fine, Kurt" Adam said. "I'm just a bit dizzy." He winced as he felt the bump on the back of his head.

"Rachel, can you get some ice for Adam's head, please?" Kurt asked.

Rachel walked into the loft, leave a lot of the space around Cooper and Blaine. Cooper was struggling to keep Blaine pinned to the ground.

Blaine was shouting, "Let me go, Coop. That bastard is trying to come between me and Kurt. Let me at him. I need to protect Kurt from him. He is evil. He needs to die."

"Calm down, Blaine," Cooper said. "Calm down, brother. We need to get you home to Ohio."

Rachel came into the room with the ice pack, and handed it to Adam.

Two police officers walked into the loft. One of them drew his gun, and said, "Get off him, and keep your hands where we can see them."

Cooper said, "I'm trying to restrain him. He's my brother. He has a personality disorder, and hasn't taken his meds."

"I said get off of him," the officer repeated. "And you on the ground. You stay still."

Cooper stood up.

Blaine ran at Adam again, and tried to punch him again, but Santana tackled him before he could get to Adam. Blaine was screaming, "Let me go. Let me go. I'm going to kill him. Let me go."

Two more officers walked into the loft.

The second officer said, "Bates, Morelli, handcuff and subdue that man on the floor."

The two officers subdued Blaine.

The first officer said, "We need to take this man into custody. What's his name?"

"His name is Blaine Anderson," Cooper said. "He's my brother. He has a personality disorder, and he needs to get medical attention."

The first officer said, "Harris, call for an ambulance. Let's get this young man to the hospital for evaluation."

Blaine was still screaming, "Kurt and I are perfect together. We're endgame. We belong together. That bastard needs to die."

"That him out to the cruiser," the first officer said.

"Officer, please, can I go with him?" Cooper said. "He's my brother. He needs help. Please."

"OK," the first officer said.

Cooper followed the two officers carrying Blaine to the cruiser.

"OK," the officer said. "I will need to see photo ID from the four of you, and we need statements."

Kurt said, "Officer, Blaine is my ex-boyfriend, and he has been stalking and harassing us. We just got restraining orders against him. I have the paperwork in my bag." He held out his bag.

The officer took the bag from Kurt, and opened it. He took out the paperwork from the court, and read it. He said, "OK. This looks in order. We will just need to get statements from all of you."

Kurt, Adam, Rachel, and Santana gave their statements to the officers.
