Klaine AU! After months of nothing Kurt gives up the hope of Blaine asking him out and starts dating Sam instead. What he doesn’t know is that Blaine had just gathered up the courage to admit his real feelings towards him
Blaine usually doesn’t get calls from Kurt at 2 in the morning.
“Mm ‘lo?” He mumbles, his eyes still closed and his face still pressed into the pillow.
There’s a pause on the other end of the line, Blaine waiting for Kurt to say something. It isn’t until he hears a small snuffle, followed by a whimper, that he sits up, his forehead creasing with concern.
“Kurt?” He asks. And then it hits him - it was the night of Kurt’s date with Sam. So obviously something didn’t go as planned.
“It’s nothing,” Kurt mumbles, his voice sounding congested. ”It’s just - it was going fine and then when he brought me home he looked at me and said ‘Kurt, look, I don’t think this is going to work.’” Blaine chuckles a little at Kurt’s Sam voice, but he remains silent and lets Kurt finish.
“And then when I asked why, he said - he said there was ‘something in the way.”
Blaine opens his mouth to say something, but nothing comes out.
“And I just - I don’t know what he’s talking about and -“
“Kurt?” Blaine interrupts him, because he can’t let Kurt beat himself up like that.
“I need to tell you that…” Blaine trails off and takes a deep breath. ”Sam asked me if it was okay to ask you out,” he said. ”And I - he said it didn’t sound like I was sure.”
Kurt’s silent, so Blaine goes on. It’s now or never, he thinks.
“And that’s why I’ve been so withdrawn the past couple of days, becasue - God, Kurt, I’ve wanted to ask you out since forever but I’m just so fucking shy all the time and - and I’d finally gotten the courage and then Sam asked me and - and he’s so different from me and he’s worth your time and -“
“Wait,” Kurt interrupts him. ”You - I - what?”
“I like you, Kurt,” Blaine whispers, and he isn’t even sure if Kurt can hear him. ”I like you, but it’s too late now.”
Blaine goes to hang up the phone, hoping that he hasn’t just screwed everything up.
“Blaine wait!” Kurt all but yells through the phone, as if he knows that Blaine was about to disconnect. ”I - I’m coming over.”
“Kurt it’s two in the morning -“
“No, this is important. I’m coming over.”
What Blaine doesn’t expect, though, is that the first thing Kurt does when he sees him is press a soft kiss to his lips, telling him that he’s liked him since forever too.
