But I think I'll be alright

The Beginning

So I had an odd theory that we had already met Blaine's chief tormentor on Glee and that he didn't actually go to 'Westerville High' before moving to Dalton. I wasn't sure how to convey this theory but then this happened.

Disclaimer: I do not own Glee or any of the characters therein

Blaine's face stung as he was punched yet again "S-s-stop please leave me alone."

His tormentor grinned "not likely, we can't have fairies like you running around the place." The bully kicked Blaine in the stomach laughing as his fellow Glee club members watched in amusement. "And stop perving on our rehearsals Queer it puts me off my groove" Jesse St James added before sauntering off in the direction of the showers.

Blaine woke with a start, memories of that awful day fresh in his mind. Admittedly it hadn't been the worst occasion in which he was beaten up but the curly-haired boy was trying to block the 'Sadie Hawkins' dance from his memory. Jesse had really gone to town on him that time, bruised ribs, a broken arm, a shattered ankle and covered in cuts and bruises. After the dance Blaine's father had been forced to take action against Blaine's bullying and enrol him at Dalton Academy for boys.

This is where Blaine presently found himself, all his books and his bags were packed to move into the dorms of Dalton and to say that Blaine was terrified would be an understatement. He took his time getting ready to face the day, the Dalton uniform had arrived a few days previously and Blaine had cringed at how formal the uniform looked. Who on earth wore a blazer all day? For the first time in his short life, Blaine gelled his hair down; his father had told him that a gelled back European look would be more befitting with the uniform than letting his hair go free.

The sophomore…no he was a freshman again now, found it hard to stomach the boiled egg that his mother had lovingly prepared for him. Was it normal for Blaine to feel so scared at the prospect of starting his new school?

The Sadie Hawkins dance had caused Blaine to miss 3 months of school and even before that Blaine had avoided going to Carmel everyday so that he could avoid seeing Jesse St. James and his cronies. It was therefore felt necessary to hold Blaine back a year when he enrolled at Dalton, the former sophomore was to repeat his freshman year because they thought that the work would be considered too academically challenging for Blaine to cope with.

As he walked through the marble hallways of Dalton academy Blaine was filled with dread. He could only hope that the people here were nicer than those at his last school.
