Title: (First) Kiss
Author: heartsasmagnets  
Rating: G
Pairing: Kurt/Blaine
Word Count: 300
Spoilers: Blaine exists.
Summary: Kurt's first kiss.
Notes: Thanks to colfer . 
 

He’s trembling; breathing deep and slow. His eyelids take on an inexplicable weight the moment he starts to close them. A few anxious seconds pass before their lips meet for the first time. His heart pounds wildly in his chest. A million thoughts race through his brain, or rather a million permutations of the same thought: he’s kissing me.

A (first) kiss is a huge deal. You don’t kiss just anybody – especially not the way he’s being kissed. Hugging, hand holding and cuddling are all things he’s done at some point with one or more of his friends. They can mean everything or nothing. This isn’t nothing.

In his mind, kissing is the only innocent thing that separates friends from lovers.

That is, until Blaine carefully cups his face in his hand and laboriously brushes his thumb across his cheek. It’s then that he realizes the power of the smallest touch: the hand that timidly journeys up from thigh to waist, a pair of long eyelashes brushing against his face. He sub-consciously reaches out to do some touching of his own – natural – like a reflex memory for something he’s never even known.

His hand meets the resistance of a solid shoulder, before quickly moving flat against his chest. No matter what happens now, he knows that this is the only time in his life he’s ever felt this full or happy.

The lips against his own are smooth and taste slightly of peppermint. He can’t help but smile a little, because he loves peppermint.

It’s the perfect first kiss, chaste and gentle.

“You don’t know how long I wanted to do that,” Blaine whispers against his lips. He does know.

 In the months that follow, Kurt will learn that he likes to kiss, but love is found in the smallest touch.

You! Ugh, I don't even know what to do with you. ♥ *cuddles*

Writing fic is kind of intensely emotional for me, in that, it's rarely any good unless I make myself feel the things my characters are feeling.

And I don't deserve a drop of thanks, this was all you.

Oh, you. Get up, you silly thing! I'm glad it resonated well, though. As usual, I was worried.

That was so beautiful! In real time, it probably couldn't have been more than a few seconds, but you captured the moment with such detail and elegance and sweetness. It was so simple and truthful and just... wow.

And that last line was just the icing on this immensely awesome cake.

Keep up the great work! I LOVED THIS!

"– natural – like a reflex memory for something he’s never even known."

I love the way this line plays across so many meanings for memory and of knowledge. It's a lovely haunting instant for us to breath and reflect--just like Kurt does--before plunging back into the sensation of the moment.

Incidentally, I didn't read the summary (I just see you post and I read) and thought it was rather clever the way your first two paragraphs kept the perspective a mystery. I was trying to figure out who was kissing whom. I know, now, that you had a point of view in mind, but I still adore the possible ambiguity because it says so much about what might bring them to this point.

I love you. I hope I always write things worthy of this kind of implicit trust. ♥

MOST BEAUTIFUL KISS EVER!!!

And no matter how it happens on the show, this is officially what's running through Kurt's mind for me.

*bows down to your greatness*
