Kurt holds Blaine tight, rubbing over his back and waiting until Blaine’s ready to pull away with a sniffle, his eyes red, teeth digging into his lip nervously. It breaks Kurt’s heart to see him this way - sometimes he forgets that Blaine is younger, that he can be so heartbreakingly insecure because he hasn’t built himself a tough exterior to deal with the world in the same way Kurt has.
"Hey," Kurt says softly, sweetly, cupping Blaine’s face between his hands and watching Blaine’s mouth twitch with a smile when he rubs away the tears on Blaine’s cheeks with his thumbs. "Come to bed with me?"
Blaine heaves out a shaky sigh. “Kurt, I don’t know—”
"Trust me, sweetie," Kurt says, and then Blaine’s nodding, fingering squeezing gratefully at Kurt’s as Kurt leads them into the bedroom.
AU: Blaine and Elliott have been close friends ever since they were both bitten and turned several hundred years ago. After a recent move to New York, they both befriend Kurt Hummel. Blaine’s relationship with the human quickly grows serious, but the more time he spends with Kurt and the stronger their bond grows, the more worried he becomes of his secret slipping. Little does he know that Kurt already has his suspicions about Blaine and Elliott’s secret (because, really, there’s only so many songs about vampires one can write before people start to suspect something, right?).
