prompts - klaine's first i love you after they got back together or the first time kurt said i love you first :)
Blaine was bound and determined to wait Kurt out, this time.
They’d been back together for 2 hours and 37 minutes and everything within him was dying to spin Kurt around, kissing him senseless as he told him just how much he loved him. But he’d said it first the first time, back in the Lima Bean, and though they’d said they love each other a couple times during their time apart, it hadn’t been the same kind of “I love yous.” Though Blaine felt confident that Kurt was fully onboard with their reunion, he didn’t want to push his luck. He’d let Kurt make that next move.
"You look a little—" Kurt began, before pulling his face into an exaggerated pout. They were walking, hand-in-hand once more, through the halls of McKinley. They were headed toward Blaine’s locker, where they were going to grab Blaine’s things and head out to spend the rest of the day together.
"No, I’m good," Blaine said, smiling broadly. Kurt smiled in return. "Where to first?"
"Lima Bean," Kurt said with an assured nod of his head. "I need some coffee to counterbalance all that lemonade."
They drove to the Lima Bean together in Blaine’s car, just like old times. Blaine couldn’t keep himself from singing along with every song on the radio at the top of his lungs, making Kurt laugh Blaine’s favorite of Kurt’s laughs. They strolled into the Lima Bean and got into line. When they reached the front, Kurt immediately placed their order without even a glance at Blaine.
"You know my coffee order," Blaine said, and Kurt just smiled his teasing, flirty smile.
They grabbed their drinks and Kurt led them to a table in the center of the floor. Blaine held out Kurt’s chair for him before taking his seat. They sat for a few seconds, just grinning at each other, before Blaine took a sip of his medium drip.
"I love you," Kurt said as soon as the cup hit Blaine’s lips. Blaine startled, holding a gulp of hot coffee in his mouth as he tried not to inhale it instead. He swallowed and looked up at Kurt, who was grinning like a fox.
"You did that on purpose," Blaine said, and Kurt laughed.
"I’ve always wanted to get you back for that," Kurt replied. "Saying I love you for the first time when I was taking a sip of coffee."
"You’re terrible," Blaine replied, and Kurt nodded.
"I am," Kurt said. "But you love me."
"I do," Blaine said. "And you love me."
Kurt reached out to take Blaine’s hand in his. “I do.”
