Title: A Gentleman Never Takes Advantage
Author: [info]heartsasmagnets 
Rating: PG-13
Word Count: 1,100
Spoilers: Through 2.10 "A Very Glee Christmas"
Summary: A possible scenario of what happens after BICO.
Note: This isn't necessarily what I think should happen after BICO, but it's what came out when I started writing.
 

Their travel plans for winter break fall through, but everyone else manages to get home safely. To make light of the matter, they share a cheeky rendition of “Baby it’s Cold Outside” with the empty halls of Dalton.

Yes, Blaine is shocked by how flirty Kurt acts as he glides around the room. And yes, he wants to kiss Kurt at many points during their impromptu performance - but he doesn’t.

They collapse side-by-side on the couch in front of the roaring fire as the final notes of the Christmas classic turn to laughter. He can hardly remember Dalton before Kurt arrived. Even though he’s only been here a few weeks, Kurt’s presence has brought a new life to the long echoing halls and his own special brand of joy to Blaine himself.

“We sound good together,” Kurt murmurs as he rests his head on Blaine’s shoulder and stares into the fire. Blaine tenses slightly, startled by the sudden intimacy. He hopes Kurt doesn’t notice. It isn’t an unwelcome move; it simply caught him off-guard.

“I think so, too,” Blaine agrees with a contented smile.  

At some point – Blaine isn’t exactly sure how many hours of conversation later – they decide that it’s long past time for bed and head back to the dormitory.

---

“My hands are freezing,” Kurt complains on the way, rubbing his glove-less palms together. It’s lightly snowing and there’s a decent breeze swirling around campus, nothing out of the ordinary for Ohio this time of year.

“It’s winter. You’re supposed to wear gloves, Kurt,” Blaine replies. Stopping in front of Kurt, he takes both his bare hands in his own gloved ones and huffs warm breath over them, looking up at Kurt whose eyes suddenly seem more intense than ever.

“Thanks,” Kurt replies. He can’t help but notice the awkward quaver in Kurt’s voice. Their hands brush a few times as they continued to walk. The third time it happens, Blaine laces his fingers through Kurt’s and brushes his thumb across the back of Kurt’s hand.

He has gloves and Kurt doesn’t; he figures it’s only polite to share.

Out of the corner of his eye, Blaine can see a small bashful smile light up Kurt’s face. It calms the wobbly butterflies in his stomach and the nagging voice in his head that keeps warning him of how bad an idea this could be. They don’t say a word until they reach Kurt’s door.

“Well, goodnight,” Blaine mumbles, quickly letting go of his hand.

“Wait,” Kurt grabs his hand again. “Carole sent some cocoa --”

“Cocoa sounds good,” he interrupts, perhaps a bit too excitedly, finally making eye contact with Kurt since he first took his hand. Kurt is smiling wider than Blaine has ever seen. Cocoa does sound delicious, and he won’t turn it down, but secretly Blaine is hoping that Kurt wants more than cocoa.

Kurt unlocks his door and tugs Blaine inside, quickly discarding his jacket.

---

Blaine desperately fights the heaviness of his eyelids. He presses a few light kisses into the nape of Kurt’s neck and tightens the arm he has wrapped his waist to keep them fitted together. Even if it was light enough in the room to see Kurt, he’s facing the other way. Blaine is suddenly incredibly anxious about what just happened. It all happened so quickly.

It’s been at least twenty minutes since Kurt spoke and he wonders if Kurt has given in to the sleep that is threatening to keep Blaine from this particular moment. In the darkness, there’s nothing but the reality of skin on skin and the soft sounds of their synchronous breathing.

“Kurt,” he whispers into the silence. He feels Kurt breathe in especially deeply and turn to face him. “Are you okay?”

“Scared,” Kurt replies frankly.

He gets it. He really does. Half-naked under the covers of Kurt’s bed is not where Blaine expected to be tonight, either.

“Me too,” he answers, surprising himself. “But this is good scary, right? At least, I think it’s good.”

“Fast,” Kurt mumbles sleepily. “Really, really fast.”

Realistically, they’d only made out, minus a few articles of clothing – but it did feel like a big deal. Clearly Kurt felt they’d gone too far, and the last thing he wants is to make Kurt any more uncomfortable than he already has. “I’ll go then,” Blaine says, rising up from the bed.

“No. Please. No,” Kurt begs, fumbling for Blaine’s arm to pull him back down to the bed. “That’s not what I meant.” Kurt curls into his chest once he’s back down on the bed. “Please don’t go,” he whispers. “That would be so much worse. It’s just new.”

Blaine wraps his arms back around Kurt, stroking his back reassuringly. “I didn’t expect this to happen, but I’d be lying if I said I regret it,” he says, kissing the crown of Kurt’s head. “I’m sorry if that scares you.”

“I just never thought you’d ---” Kurt begins but stops with a sigh.

“Of course, Kurt,” he says, answering the unfinished sentence. “From the very beginning, and even more since. You’re the best thing that’s ever happened to me. Don’t ever think any differently. I just didn’t want to push you into anything. I thought about it all night tonight, but a gentleman never takes advantage.”

Without another word, Kurt moves toward him, their lips meeting timidly as if for the first time. One of Blaine’s hands slides down Kurt’s bare side, grasping clumsily at his hip. Kurt parts his lips and he enjoys the sensation of their tongues against each other – rough and fleeting.

“You’re beautiful,” Blaine whispers between kisses, cupping Kurt’s face with his other hand.

“You can’t even see me,” Kurt laughs quietly, nudging Blaine’s nose with his own. His eyelashes brush against his face.

“I don’t have to,” Blaine replies, burying his head against Kurt’s neck in what he can only describe as a horizontal hug. Their most sensual embrace yet.

Eventually, it all begins to feel a little less new and Kurt kisses him one last time before returning to his position as the little spoon. This time, neither of them fights sleep. As Blaine drifts off, he’s keenly aware of the unspoken responsibility he’s taken on tonight.

Kurt has entrusted him with his heart and he can never ever break it.  Lucky for Kurt, gentlemen never do.

I have the cutest mental image of this. It might have made me flail a little.

Really sweet story. Adored it.

This was sweet. I like how it deals with Blaine/Kurt in a certain realistic light that everyone has more or less been ignoring for now. We're all hoping and praying that Kurt and Blaine are going to suddenly become boyfriends overnight, but Kurt has *never* experienced anything like this, so of course he would be incredibly overwhelmed.

Even though I enjoy it immensely, everyone's been throwing these two together in all kinds of sexy situations and it's just not realistic. My prediction for next Tuesday's ep before the break is that these two will become closer, maybe even do some flirting (because let's face it, Kurt is a flirt, but he's never had a receptive audience before), but that's about it. I don't expect a kiss (though I'd pay big bucks for it), and I still believe we'll be dealing the Karofsky and those issues.

But hey, these are just my thoughts. Didn't mean to ramble your ear off, but it's what this fic made me ponder. Thanks for writing such good Klaine stories!
