Blaine for Dinner
The Hudmel Friday night Dinner plus Blaine, note Blaine is not on the menu as the title may suggest. Set some time after regionals and before Night of Neglect.
Not long till season 3 yay yay yay yay yay yay yay yay yay yay!
"Dad?" He asked walking into the room and curling up on the sofa.
"I wanted to tell you something"
"Are you alright?, no ones hurting you are they?" Burt scrutinized his son's face but was unable to see any trace of- well what he was hoping to find exactly he didn't know.
"No, no its a good thing actually" Kurt said trying to keep his excitement out of his voice
"well spit it out, deadliest catch is on"
Burt raised his eyebrow ( Kurt had to have got it from somewhere)
"Blaine and I are together now"
"as in boyfriends?"
"Just before regionals"
That was over a week ago, Burt wondered why it had taken so long for his son to tell him. A question he vocalized when he next spoke.
"why didn't you tell me?"
"I didn't want to jinx it and I was still hoping that it wasn't a dream"
The older Hummel smiled. "well invite him for dinner on Friday then, I want to meet him officially."
Kurt blanched this had the potential of going horribly wrong. " But Dad, you've already met Blaine a couple of times."
"Yes...but he wasn't your boyfriend then. Now scram I've missed enough if this program already, go call Mercedes or something."
So that's exactly what Kurt did, he sprinted out of the living room dialing his BFF's number as he went. The next hour was spent agonizing over what outfit to wear that Friday causing Burt to reconsider his advice as he was the one who paid Kurt's phone bill.
Friday came far too soon for Burt's liking. As far as first impressions go, Blaine had done a rather measly job, not only had Burt once found him hung-over in Kurt's bed but then less than a week later the boy had the nerve to tell him to give Kurt 'the talk'. Yet Blaine was essentially a good kid and he made Kurt happy, any fool could tell that, when Kurt came home from a date or even after school he had a massive grin plastered on his face.
Burt was helping Finn set the table when the doorbell rang. Kurt was in the kitchen making dinner with Carol but he dropped everything when he heard the chiming of the bell .
"I'll get it"
On opening the door, he revealed the short curly haired boy holding a massive bunch of flowers.
"Hi Blaine." he managed to stammer before being pulled into a passionate kiss .
"Hi" Blaine ventured breathlessly holding out a single red rose. "Red means courage."
"I brought these," he said pointing to the flowers "for Carole, you said lilies were her favorite right?"
Blaine was right, The two boys walked hand in hand into the dining room and Carole was immediately entranced by the flowers, putting them in he best vase and placing the lilies in the center of the table. "I like this guy already" she nudged Burt who laughed at his wife's antics.
Dinner could have gone a lot worse Kurt reasoned. Blaine seemed to get on well with Burt and Finn and was able to maintain a conversation about football (what they were talking about with all the rules and regulations was totally going over Kurt's head ) and lots of other sports that had Kurt quickly zoning out of the conversation.
"I used to play on the college team you know, before I did my knee in"
"Oh really Mr Hummel, I was always considered too small to be on the team at my old school and there isn't a football team at Dalton"
"Where was your old school," Finn asked "why did you leave?"
Warning bells were sounding in Kurt's head and he made a throat cutting gesture in Finn's direction pleading with him to stop.
"It's ok Kurt, it's kind of common knowledge these days, I mean I didn't really talk when I first got to Dalton but with friends like Wes and David it soon came out." Blaine paused and surveyed the eager anticipating faces sat around the table. Kurt leaned over and whispered "courage" into his ear and this fueled Blaine to go on.
"Finn, I transferred fro pretty much the same reason as Kurt did. I used to go to Westerville High but they didn't take to me being gay very well and whereas in McKinley its slushie facials and dumpster tosses, I generally got locked into small spaces, lockers, store cupboards, bathroom stalls you name it."
"I'm sorry" Kurt sighed squeezing his boyfriend's hand
"Don't be, if it weren't for the bullies I had never have got to go to Dalton and met a ridiculously bad spy."
Kurt turned away blushing and Burt couldn't help but laugh. Kurt did not blend in well full stop never mind trying to conceal himself to creep around and spy.
"That's true Mr Hummel, he's always trying to adapt the uniform to make himself look unique."
The Hudmel clan , apart from Kurt all laughed
"That's my boy," Burt said ruffling his son's hair earning a death glare from the latter boy "and you can call me Burt son, I hope you'll be joining us for many more Friday night dinners."
"I'd be honored sir...I mean Burt, that is if Kurt will still have me"
"Well I don't know, if you keep making jokes at my expense, we may have to rethink things."
Blaine pouted and looked at Kurt with his puppy dog eyes
"oh get a room you two" Finn snapped
"Dad can we go up to my room?"
"Fine but leave the door open."
The two boys didn't need more assurance than this and made their way upstairs.
Blaine of course being a gentleman could not leave without asking Carole if she wanted them to clear up for her. Upon hearing that they didn't have to help he thanked her for a lovely meal and followed Kurt to his room.
Later that evening Burt and Carole could be found doing the washing up .This had initially been Finn's job but Quinn had rung thus excusing him from his chores and Burt couldn't help but think that this was not accidental.
"He's a lovely boy that Blaine, I think he'd be good for Kurt"
"As long as he doesn't pressurize my son, I'm sure we'll get on fine"
"Burt, I think this guy is going to be around for a while"
"I hope so, Kurt deserves to be happy after all that crap he's been through recently"
"Now we just need to find someone for Finn..."
"Yeah I don't really see him and Quinn lasting he's too in love with Rachel"
"oh, our boys what can you do with them?"
"I just don't know, but I wouldn't trade them for the world"
"I love you Burt"
"I love you too Carole" Burt said pulling her close and kissing his wife tenderly.
