and maybe you’re right, maybe it is a contest.
The easy way that Blaine says that. “You’re gonna wake up and realize ‘I don’t love him anymore.’” He just shrugs, like it’s an inevitability. Like this is something he’s thought about so often, he’s desensitized to it.
And yet there are tears in his eyes. Because no matter how often he thinks about it, it still scares him so much. And he’s scared that now that he’s finally said it out loud, it’ll become reality.
Then Kurt comes in and says, “Never.” Such a definitive answer. He didn’t just say, “Of course not.” He said “Never.” And then he added, “I’m always gonna love you.” Always. This is all Blaine has ever wanted to hear since they broke up, and now he’s heard it.
Let’s hope they can move on from this now and be happy together without always fighting about petty things.
I would much rather be running this race with you than against you.
Could this be the Freshman Fifteen?
