Blaine had just seen his last patient for the night. He clocked out and was on his way home.
“Wait up Anderson!” shouted Santana.
Blaine turned around and saw he running towards him.
“What is it San?” Blaine asked, looking dead tired.
She handed him a piece of paper. “This is the place that Brittany and I are taking you tonight. They have a dress code. So dress nice.”
“I already told you-” he started, but Santana just shook her head.
“Nope, you're going, even if we have to drag you there.”
Blaine shook his head as he stuffed the paper in his pocket and turned towards the door.
“I'll see you soon.” Santana yelled after him as she went in the opposite direction.
Blaine took the bus home and made his way to his apartment. He slipped his shoes off and dropped his bag on one of the dining room chairs. He then plopped down on the couch, grabbed the remote, turned on the TV and started to flip through the channels looking for nothing in particular.
Before he could decide on a certain channel, Blaine felt his phone vibrate in his pocket. He reached in and saw that it was Santana. He wanted to ignore her, but he if he did she would keep calling.
“Hello?” he answered.
“You better be getting ready to go.” she ordered.
Blaine rolled his eyes. “Where is this place anyway?”
“It's at a friend's place. Don't worry about it. There's going to be a lot of people there. And hey you might even meet someone.” Santana explained.
Blaine sighed. “If I go will you promise to stop getting me to meet someone? I told you, I'll meet someone when I'm ready.”
Santana rolled her eyes. She had heard her friend say this a thousand times before. “Ok. If you go out tonight I promise I won't bug you the rest of the weekend.”
“And you promise to stop getting me to meet someone?” he repeated.
Santana bit her lip. “Ok. I promise.”
Blaine laughed. “Good. But I'll meet you there.”
“Why?” she asked.
“Because I need to reapply my hair gel after I take my shower and that can take a while.” Blaine admitted.
Santana laughed. “I don't think you should gel your hair. You should let it flow. But that's just my opinion. See you later buddy.”
Blaine laughed as he said goodbye to his friend and hung up his phone.
After having dinner with his family, Kurt started to do the dishes.
“Aren't you going to get ready to go out?” asked Rachel.
Kurt shrugged his shoulders. “I thought I would wait until after I put the kids to bed.”
Rachel shook her head. “Here. This is the address of my friend that's having a party tonight. If she says anything, just say that you know me. It'll be fine.” she explained as she handed Kurt a piece of paper.
Kurt looked down at it. The address written on it wasn't that far. He thought, if anything happened he could get back quickly.
“But there is a dress code. So you need to go change.” Rachel added.
Kurt looked at her wide-eyed. “A dress code? Rachel come on. I've been working all day and now I have to dress up?”
“Come on Kurt, it's only for a few hours.” Rachel whined.
Kurt sighed. “Fine. But can you please help get the kids ready for bed?”
An hour an half later, Blaine was dressed and ready to go. He grabbed his wallet, phone and keys and headed out of the door. He checked the address on the paper Santana had given him and started to make his way there. On his way there, he passed by a liquor store. Blaine didn't normally drink, but he thought that since he was going to a party he should bring something. He walked into the store and started to browse.
After Kurt had showered and changed, he had come back downstairs. Rachel was on the couch reading Lila and Cory a bedtime story. Rachel turned around and saw how nice Kurt looked.
“Hey, you look really nice Kurt.” Rachel admired.
“Really? Not too much?” Kurt blushed.
Rachel shook her head. “No. You really look great.”
“You look handsome daddy.” said Lila.
“Daddy pretty.” said Cory.
Kurt smiled and walked up to them. “Thank you.” he kissed both of them goodnight. “Now I want you two to be good for your aunt Rachel tonight. I'll be back after you go to bed.”
“Where you going?” Cory asked.
“I'm just going out for a little while.” Kurt answered as simply as he could.
“Will you be here when we wake up in the morning?” Lila asked.
“Of course I will honey.” Kurt replied, hugging his daughter tightly. “I'll always be here when you wake up.” Kurt looked at Rachel sympathetically. He started to think that she was thinking when his ex-husband left all those years ago.
Rachel knew what Kurt was thinking. She quickly mouthed the word 'go.' Kurt kissed Lila and Cory one more time and Kurt was out the door.
Blaine had finally made it to the designated address. He rang the doorbell and waited for someone to answer. A few seconds later, a young woman, answered the door.
“Yes?” she asked.
“Hi, I'm Blaine. I'm Santana's friend.” Blaine started.
“Oh, right. The doctor. Come on in.” she replied, opening the door wider to let Blaine in. “I'm Dani.”
“Nice to meet you. Oh, this is for you.” Blaine replied, handing her the bottle of wine that he had bought earlier.
“Oh thanks.” Dani replied, as she walked off to the kitchen.
“Blaine!” he heard someone call his name. He turned around and saw Brittany coming towards him grabbing him in a hug.
“Hey Brittany.” he stated.
“I've missed you.” she admitted.
“I've missed you too.” Blaine said.
“Don't mind her Blaine.” Santana said, coming to the rescue, swinging one of Brittany's arms over her shoulder. “She's had a little bit too much to drink.”
“Already?” Blaine asked.
“Only two glasses of wine are her limit.” Santana admitted, as she dragged Brittany away.
“Can somebody get that?” Dani called.
Blaine looked around. He saw that no one had eagerly volunteered, so he decided to be a nice guest and answer the door. He wasn't expecting to see who he did when he opened the door.
Both men felt that time stood still.
Kurt shook his head out of his thoughts. “Hi. I'm looking for Dani. Does she live here?”
Blaine blinked a few times. “Uh..yeah. Sorry. Come on in. I'm Blaine.” he extended his hand for Kurt to shake.
Kurt walked in and smiled. He then shook Blaine's hand. “I'm Kurt.”
“Nice to meet you Kurt.” said Blaine.
The two men stood like that for a few minutes, as if they were the only two people in the world.
“Um...Can I get you something to drink Kurt?” Blaine offered.
“Oh..sure.” Kurt replied, as he followed Blaine into the kitchen, where everyone else seemed to be hanging out.
Blaine grabbed a two plastic cups and a bottle of wine. “Come on. It's a little crowded in here. Why don't we go out back?”
Kurt nodded and followed.
Blaine and Kurt went out to the back porch and sat down on the two patio chairs. Blaine popped open the bottle of wine and poured Kurt and himself a cup.
“Thank you.” smile Kurt.
“You're welcome.” Blaine replied. “Here's to meeting new people.” he said raising he cup and clinking it with Kurt's.
“To meeting new people.” Kurt repeated and taking a sip.
“So, how did you get talked into coming here?” Blaine blurted out.
Kurt nearly choked on his drink. “Excuse me?”
“Oh, I'm sorry. Do you know Dani personally?” Blaine apologized.
Kurt laughed. “No. Actually my friend gave me her address. Said I needed to get out more.”
Blaine laughed. “Yeah. My friend said the same thing. Isn't that how it all starts?”
“How all what starts?” Kurt asks, taking another sip of wine.
“Having a friend saying you need to get out more. Then you do, you end up having a great time and then your friend says I told you so.”
Blaine looks over at Kurt. “What? It's true. You just wait and see.”
Kurt rolled his eyes. “No, not Rachel. She wouldn't do something like that. At least I hope not.”
Blaine nodded and took another sip of wine.
Blaine and Kurt continued to talk for what seemed like the entire rest of the party. They didn't even notice that everyone else had left.
“Hey guys.” Dani said, interrupting them.
Blaine and Kurt turned around.
“I hate to interrupt, but the party's been over for like an hour.” she admitted.
Blaine and Kurt looked at their phones.
Kurt's eyes widened. “Oh my god.”
“I guess we talked all night.” Blaine admitted.
“Yeah you did.” Dani stated.
“It was really nice to meet you Blaine, but I have to go.” Kurt said quickly, as he got up and ran out of the house.
“Kurt, wait.” Blaine said, but it was to late. Kurt was gone.
“Please tell me you at least got his phone number?” Dani teased.
Blaine shook his head sadly.
Dani sighed. “Sorry Blaine. Maybe you'll see him again someday.” she said sympathetically, patting him on the shoulder.
