Title: (Best Thing That's Ever Been) Mine
Rating: G
Pairing: Kurt/Blaine
Word Count: ~400
Summary: Kurt contemplates his feelings for Blaine.
Notes: This is apparently what results when I watch Darren talk about why Kurt and Blaine are so great for each other and then I listen to the radio. I don't know how to feel. I think I like it. I hope you do, too.

---


Kurt doesn’t normally approve of referring to other people as if they were property.

But this morning, he couldn’t resist singing along with the dulcet tones of Taylor Swift as they bounced around the inside of his car. Nor could he restrain himself from feeling an unexpectedly deep connection to the words: He is the best thing that’s ever been mine

Kurt pulled into one of the last free parking spaces at McKinley and removed the key from the ignition. He reached for his phone to write a text, quickly selecting Blaine’s name from the list of possible recipients.

Thank you.

He stared at the words for a moment, contemplating if more were needed. He smiled. No this was all that needed to be said. He pressed send, staring out through his windshield at the bright blue morning sky.

For a long time, Kurt had been alone. Sure, he had his dad and Mercedes who were both understanding and supportive in their own ways, but they couldn’t ever give him exactly what needed so desperately. They could try to understand what it was like to be a gay boy in a school full of intolerant Neanderthals, but they would never be able to feel the pain he’d felt.  

Blaine did.  

He’d been through it all. The internal – doubts and fears, and the external – bullying and isolation.

His phone vibrated in his hand and he pressed the screen to open the message.

No, Kurt. Thank you.

As usual, Blaine managed to understand Kurt perfectly.

Kurt wasn’t sure where their relationship was headed. He knew he cared for Blaine in a way he’d never cared for anyone before, and maybe that meant there would be more to them than just friendship, but he didn’t know. For once in his life, he was going to do his best not to get worked up about it and just let nature take its course.

Blaine would have no problem with Kurt referring to him as ‘his’. If two people
were lucky enough to find one another and share something as intimate as they had, a part of each would always belong to the other.

Without reservation, he could say that Blaine was in fact – his.

His confidant.
His best friend.
And if it was in the cards, maybe…his lover.

You did a great job showing how they are so intimately connected with that little txt exchange. By leaving the referent out of kurt's txt, I felt the point you were making about trying to understand but being blocked from that interior kurt. I didn't get the text; but Blaine did. You enact in that exchange exactly what you are describing. Another great short piece!

Yay! Oh my gosh. You don't know how happy I am to see your reply! I hope you're feeling better. It felt like I'd lost my only assured audience which was making me super sad-face.

I am glad Kurt doesn't have it all figured out, either. I thought it was time to portray them as all figured out. Sometimes figured out is good, but I think Kurt likes to overthink and figure things out and its nice to think that maybe with Blaine he wouldn't feel the need to.
