It’s a normal, lazy, afternoon at the Hummel’s when Blaine stops and stares at Kurt. He has these moments sometimes, when he is overwhelmed by how much he loves Kurt - and how much Kurt has done for him. Both knowingly and unknowingly.
“Thanks,” Blaine blurts out. Kurt looks back at him curiously.
Blaine gulps. He hadn’t meant to say anything. “For everything,” he says. “I don’t think I’ve ever told you that you saved me.” Blaine smiles, and Kurt does too - although it’s obvious he’s still confused.
“I love you,” Blaine says. “I’ll explain later, I promise, but for now I just wanted to say thank you.”
