Ficlet: Let Me In

"Hey," Kurt said, leaning in the doorway to Blaine’s bedroom, a hot stripe of embarrassment burning across his cheeks.

Blaine didn’t respond, just nodded from where he was sitting cross-legged at the foot of his bed pretending to read from a textbook.

"I’m sorry," Kurt added after a moment, not moving from his position of straddling the line between the casual safety of the hallway and the intimate sanctuary of Blaine’s bedroom.

"Yeah…" Blaine trailed off, fingers plucking at the corner of his book, rippling the pages as he sighed. "It’s not exactly a reaction I’m unused to." Kurt bit his bottom lip and entered the room, no longer willing to wait for an invitation, and shut the door behind him.

"I was shocked. I just…" he paused as he settled in next to Blaine on the mattress, making sure not to actually touch until he got a signal that Blaine wanted him to. "I’ve drooled over those commercials in front of you before. It’s not exactly a secret that I find him attractive and once the shock wore off…" He raked his fingers through his hair, not caring what a mess he was making of it, and turned to face Blaine. "I’m just so sorry. For the way I reacted. For making those comments in the past. If I’d known, Blaine, I never would have-“

"I know, Kurt. I know…" Blaine said with a sigh, still not looking at Kurt and still fiddling with his book, the corners starting to curl from his irritated fingers. "I’ve just lived under Cooper’s shadow my entire life and hearing my boyfriend describe him as the best-looking man in North America was just…"

Kurt swallowed down the urge to vomit and grabbed Blaine’s hand, stilling his assault on the book and gripping hard.

"Cooper might be the best-looking man on the continent but you’re the best-looking man in the world," he said. Blaine scoffed and rolled his eyes, trying to pull his hand away to no avail.

"Kurt, you don’t have to say-"

"Of course I don’t. When have I ever said anything I don’t want to say?"

Blaine smiled despite himself and finally looked at Kurt.

"You’re so…" Blaine trailed off.

"Witty? Charming?" Kurt teased before sobering. "Sorry? Madly in love with you?"

"I love you too." Kurt sighed in relief and pressed his lips lightly against Blaine’s.

"Want to have really loud make up sex?" Kurt asked, lips curling up in a smile as his fingers reached for the hem of Blaine’s sweater.

"I think you actually have to have a fight in order to make up," Blaine laughed. "And isn’t Cooper just down in the living room watching TV?"

"So how about it?" Blaine shook his head and grinned as he kissed Kurt, which was all the affirmative response he needed.
