Jealousy, turning saints into the seas

By Laura Bishop

Chapter 1

(I can't explain the feeling's plain to me, so can't you see?...how can I tell you about my loved one?...

Ah, you gave me more, you gave it all to me, so can't you see... how can I tell you about my loved one?)

You'd think that people would have had enough of silly love songs

But I look around me and I see it isn't so

Some people wanna fill the world with silly love songs

And what's wrong with that?

I'd like to know, 'cause here I go again

(bab bab bab ba baa bab)

I love you (I love)

I love you (I love)

I can't explain the feeling's plain to me, so can't you see?

Ah, she gave me more, she gave it all to me, now can't you see

Love doesn't come in a minute (doesn't come in a minute)

Sometimes it doesn't come at all (doesn't come at all)

I only know that when I'm in it (only know when I'm in it)

It isn't silly (at all), no it isn't silly (at all), love isn't silly at all, not at all

(bab bab bab ba baa bab bab ba baa bab...)

I love you

I can't explain the feeling's plain to me, so can't you see?

Ah, you gave me more, you gave it all to me (how can I tell you about my loved one?) so can't you see

I can't explain the feeling's plain to me, so can't you see? (how can I tell you about my loved one?)

(bab bab bab ba baa bab bab ba baa bab...)

You'd think that people would have had enough of silly love songs

But I look around me and I see it isn't so, oh no

Some people wanna fill the world with silly love songs

And what's wrong with that?

I'd like to know, 'cause here I go again (bab bab bab ba bab ba)

I love you (I love)

I love you (I love)

I can't explain the feeling's plain to me, so can't you see?

Ah, she gave me more, she gave it all to me, now can't you see

I can't explain the feeling's plain to me, how can I tell you about my loved one?

The Warblers finished the song and I looked out to see all my friends and the patrons of Breadsticks applauding us with smiles on their face. It was no surprise to me as Blaine had been doing on his numerous solos. I looked at my best girl friends Rachel and Mercedes to see them smiling at me. I blew them both a kiss. I really appreciated most of the New Directions coming out to support me. It was good of them to support a rival glee club that they would be facing at Regionals in a month or so. The only people from New Directions who weren't here were Finn and Quinn. Mercedes had quickly filled me in that both had mono and that there was a rumour Quinn was cheating on Sam with Finn. I hadn't been home that day since a late Warbler rehearsal, getting coffee with Blaine then deciding to perform at Breadsticks so I would have talk to Finn when we had one of our regular lady chats with the hot milk I always gave him before bed. My mind cringed when I thought of the Lima Bean with Blaine earlier. I felt like such an idiot! I couldn't believe I told him I thought he was going to sing to me. I hated that I had made it all up in my head. I had been through all that before with Finn and briefly with Sam so hated that I had done that with the first gay boy I knew. I hated that Blaine was so touchy feely and flirted without knowing it. I was stupid to over think everything as usual. Watching chick-flick movies with Mercedes or Broadway movies with Rachel hadn't helped at all. In those types of films flirting meant they were in love with each other. The touching of fingertips was romantic and sexy. I knew I had to put this behind me. I had to see Blaine as a friend; the same as how he saw me. Blaine Anderson would never be my Teenage Dream. It was just a coincidence that I decided to be an 'endearing spy' when the Warblers did a random performance for the rest of the school to watch. I stepped off the stage and was greeted by Rachel. I saw Wes and David talking to Santana whereas Blaine was talking to Artie and Brittany. I heard the word 'dolphin' used a couple of times which made me chuckle.

Rachel pulled me into a hug. "That was amazing Kurt. It was a brilliant song for Valentine's Day too. I really liked your speech for single people and about it being our year."

"It is our year honey." I pulled away from the hug and smiled back at her. "You know how much I love Paul McCartney so I'm honoured to perform one of his songs. It means a lot to me that you came to see me sing."

"Oh Kurt of course I wanted to come to see you sing. I wouldn't miss it for the world. I miss you and I fighting for solos in glee club." Rachel replied, giggling a little at the end.

I couldn't help but laugh too. I really missed my old glee club. At least they respected me as an individual. I appreciated that Dalton Academy was safe for me and I was grateful to have been given a place in the Warblers but it was very much everyone was the same. I missed my designer wardrobe and choosing what to wear to school every day. Even though Rachel mainly got the solos I wanted such as 'Defying Gravity' I enjoyed every bit of my time with the New Directions.

"Me too Rachel." I leaned in and kissed her cheek, "Love you diva."

"Love you too. Now I better be heading home. Daddy's making me a vegan lasagne for dinner."

I waved goodbye to Rachel and sat down in one of the booths. Everyone seemed busy or had already left. I glanced around to see if I could find Blaine but to no avail. Mike and Tina had left; probably to have dinner with Mike's mother, Artie and Brittany were eating spaghetti like the two dogs did in 'The Lady and the Tramp', I spotted Sam and Santana leaving together, Mercedes was chatting to Wes and I had lost sight of the others. I sighed and took a deep breath before standing up. I turned around and bumped into someone.

"Oh my God, I'm sorry!"

The boy smiled at me, "That's all right. I was trying to pluck up the courage to talk to you anyway. I wanted to tell you how amazing you were when you were performing 'Silly Love Songs'."

I smiled back at the stranger. He was blonde-haired with green eyes, taller than me by a couple of inches, well-dressed and extremely attractive. I felt flattered that he had taken interest in singling me out and talking to me.

"My name is Martin Granger." Martin smiled at me again, staring into my eyes. I could feel myself quickly getting lost in his eyes. I smiled at him, "Nice to meet you. I'm Kurt Hummel."

"I was wondering, Kurt Hummel, if you'd do me the honour of being my Valentine tonight and getting dinner with me? Sorry I know that was forward but I couldn't feel help myself." Martin glanced down, looking slightly flustered. I couldn't believe that someone like him wanted to have dinner with him.

"I'd like that very much Martin," This caused Martin to look up into my eyes again. His eyes were the most beautiful green. "Are we staying here or...?"

"I thought here would be nice...unless you don't want to, we can always..."

I put my hand on Martin's arm quickly to calm him down. Instead his eyes widened and he looked down at my hand with a smile. "Breadsticks is perfect."

Martin smiled at me and he gestured to the booth that I had just stood up from and then bumped into him. We both slid into the seats on either side of the table. The waitress quickly came over and gives them a menu each. After deciding on a simple pasta dish and giving my order to the waitress, I glanced around while Martin was ordering his. It seemed as if all of the Warblers and New Directions had left. I hadn't thought it had been that long since I started talking to Martin. I suddenly spotted Artie and Brittany still eating their spaghetti and meatballs. It seemed that after the public performance, everyone had just left. I felt angry for a second as Blaine was supposed to be giving me a lift back to Dalton as the Navigator was at home. I guessed that I would be sleeping at home tonight and driving to Dalton tomorrow in my Navigator. I saw the waitress walk past meaning Martin had ordered. I turned back to him and he was just looking at me, smiling. I blushed at the stare and his smile grew.

Martin cleared his throat, "So Kurt Hummel, tell me about yourself?"

I chuckled at his words, "Ok, I'm Kurt Hummel, I'm 17, I go to Dalton Academy, I like fashion, musicals and singing. Your turn?"

Martin laughed at that and reached over and took my hand, completely surprising me, "Oh Kurt you amaze me. I'm Martin Granger, I'm 17, I go to Carmel High School, I do like singing but I'm tone-deaf, I like football and art.

"So I'm guessing you're not in Vocal Adrenaline then?" My mind quickly flew back to Jesse St. James and what he did to Rachel.

Martin laughed even louder this time, "I can ensure you I am not. They take it to the extreme. Even if I could sing I could never do that. It doesn't look fun with Vocal Adrenaline. I'm guessing you've encountered the group before?"

I sighed, "One of my best friends and the lead singer of New Directions Rachel dated Jesse St. James...do you know him?" Martin simply nodded. "Well he convinced her she was in love with him, came to McKinley and joined our group and everything, then last minute went back to Carmel, broke her heart and threw eggs at her when she's vegan!"

Martin shook his head at that, "I always remember Jesse as a jerk. I hope your friend was okay. Hang on...I thought you were in the Warblers at Dalton. Your uniform speaks for itself. You mentioned the New Directions and McKinley. Did you go there?"

"Yeah I did until a couple of months ago. Some ignorant Neanderthal wanted to make my life living hell and threatened my life." I shuddered at my memory. Martin squeezed my hand.

"Oh my god Kurt! Didn't the school do anything?" Martin looked like he was in shock

"He was expelled but the school board allowed him back so I left. Simple."

It felt weird with Martin. I felt like I got trust him and tell him anything. I hadn't hesitated when telling him about what Karofsky had done to me; excluding the kiss as I didn't believe in outing people. Our food arrived and Martin and I spent the rest of the evening talking. I learnt a lot about him and him about me. I even got him quietly to sing a song. He chose the Beatles' 'Can't Buy Me Love'. Martin had been right; he was truly awful. I praised him after he sang the chorus but he saw right through it and burst out laughing, making me laugh too. Martin was horrified I didn't like football but was extremely impressed when I said how about I was a kicker in the first game McKinley had won in ages. I explained the whole Single Ladies situation which caused him to laugh. He was also extremely interested when I mentioned I used to be a Cheerio. Everyone in Ohio knew what a Cheerio was due to their popularity. After we had finished our meals, Martin asked for the bill as he insisted he was the one who asked me out. My phone buzzed in my pocket, signifying it was late. Martin stood up and came over to my side of the booth and offered his hand. I immediately took it and we walked hand in hand out of the restaurant.

"Do you need a lift somewhere, or is your car here, or is someone collecting you?" Martin looked generally nervous and he just looked even more attractive in my eyes.

"Would it be okay to have a lift Martin? It's literally ten minutes away from here." There was no way I could ask Martin to drive me to Dalton as it was two hours away. Dad wouldn't mind me coming home tonight. He often said how much he missed me around the house.

"Of course I can give you a lift Kurt."

I walked alongside Martin, hand in hand, to his car. I wasn't surprised when seeing an expensive car parked in front of me. From previous experience any Carmel student I had seen seemed to drive an expensive car. To my delight and which also caused me to blush, Martin opened the door for me. I smiled at him and quickly said, "Thank you". Martin quickly jumped in the driver's seat and started the engine and drove off, which also started the radio. Lady Gaga's 'Bad Romance' filled the car.

"I love Lady Gaga!" I practically squealed as I informed Martin of my love for this artist.

Martin smiled and nodded his head, "She's such an amazing artist. Her songs are brilliant."

"Where have you been all my life?" Martin and I both laughed at my comment and smiled at my comment. We continued talking about music as Martin drove; with me occasionally giving directions.

"It's just here on the left."

Martin signalled left and pulled up next to my house. Suddenly there was an awkward tension in the car. I took a deep breath and turned to Martin and smiled, "Thank you so much for tonight Martin. I had a wonderful time."

Martin took my hand again, "Thank you for being my Valentine Kurt. I would offer to walk you in but I'm parked on a double yellow line."

I smiled at him, "Martin it's really okay. You've been amazing tonight."

"Thank you Kurt. You are amazing. Would you want to do this again? I mean..go out with me again?" Martin had that flustered look again.

I squeezed Martin's hand this time, "Of course I would love to go out with you again Martin. We need to swap numbers."

Martin gave me his iPhone to add my number to. I gave it back when I had submitted my number.

"I'll text you so you have my number."

"Thanks."

Martin pulled me into a hug and whispered in my ear, "I had such an amazing time tonight". I hugged him back and whispered back, "Me too".

As we pulled back from the hug our faces ended up right next to one another. I saw Martin leaning forward slightly and I tilted my own head forwards; knowing what was going to happen. Our lips met in a soft, short and sweet kiss. We pulled apart and smiled at one another.

I glanced at the clock on the dashboard. It now read 22:33. "I had better get inside. Thank you so much Martin". I leaned in and kissed Martin's cheek. "Goodnight".

"Goodnight Kurt Hummel."

I got out of the car and waved as Martin drove off. I walked up to my front door humming as I did. I got out my keys and unlocked the front door. No one was downstairs, suggesting that they were all asleep or that they were just upstairs. Finn was probably asleep as I remembered what I had been told about him having mono. I tiptoed up to my room and pulled my blazer off. I glanced at myself in the mirror and smiled. My lips looked slightly swollen but I looked happy. I grabbed my phone from the pocket of my blazer and saw I had 8 messages and 4 missed calls. I decided to answer to those after I was in my pyjamas and I had done my quicker version of my moisturising routine.

Eventually this was completed so I grabbed my iPhone and unlocked it. The missed calls were from Blaine. The first message of course was from Blaine Anderson.

From Blaine 20:25:

Kurt I'm so sorry I forgot you. Please text me back asap! Blaine xxx

I quickly skipped onto the next text

From David 20:47:

Hey Kurt Blaine's freaking out at the moment which is freaking the rest of us out. Please call us to let us know you're ok. Hope you aren't pissed off. David x

I pressed next on my phone

From Mercedes 21:16:

Hey white boy sorry I didn't say goodbye to you after the performance. I got distracted by your hot friends ;) Feel like I haven't seen you in forever. Probably didn't help that I didn't talk to you much. Sorry anyway. Night boo xxx

I sighed as I read the text. I could feel Mercedes and myself drifting apart. I felt closer to Rachel than Mercedes; which is something I never thought I'd say in my lifetime. I pressed next again

From Blaine 21:30:

Kurt it's been over an hour since I first text you. You haven't replied or answered my calls. I hope it's because you're busy and not mad at me. I'm sorry I'm such a horrible friend. I didn't mean to forget about you. Who could forget Kurt Hummel? Blaine xxx

From Blaine 21:50:

Okay I'm trying not to panic now! What's happening with you? I rang your house phone and no one answered it. Kurt I'm so sorry! I'll make it up to you I swear! Blaine xxx

From Blaine 22:02:

I feel so terrible. What if something's happened to you? What if you had to walk back to Dalton and your phone has died? What happens if you get attacked? Sorry if you're reading this and you are walking back. Kurt please text me back or answer my calls. I'm so sorry. Your idiotic friend Blaine xxx

From Blaine 22:19:

KURT! PLEASE REPLY OR CALL! I'm so sorry! Your worried friend Blaine xxx

From Blaine 22:30:

I feel like I should call the police and get them to find out whether you're alright. I'm going to stop texting now as it's disturbing my roommate with the light from my phone and the sound it's making. I just pray to God that you're okay and well and not too mad at me. Please text me or call me. Blaine xxx

I sighed and pressed the reply button to get Blaine to stop worrying when my phone signified a text being received. I pressed back on my phone and opened the text

From Unknown 22:44

Hey Kurt it's Martin. Thank you for being my Valentine it means a great deal to me; especially since it's an amazing and sexy guy like yourself. I'd really love it if we could go out again? Are you free for coffee tomorrow? Martin 3 xx

I smiled to myself; Blaine's reply going completely out of my mind. I added Martin's number to my contacts before hitting the reply button.

From Kurt 22:45

Hey Martin :) Thank you for being my Valentine too. Ooo Mr Granger I'm flattered. You're amazing and sexy too. I would love that too. I'm free for coffee tomorrow after Warbler's practice so Lima Bean at 6? Kurt 3 xx

I pressed send and waited for a nanosecond before receiving a reply.

From Martin 22:46

It's a date ;) Martin 3 xx
