(it is my headcanon that Blaine and I have the same birthday. whaaat)
Blaine and Kurt are sitting across from each other in the Dalton common room. Blaine face is buried in a book, his head perched on his hand. Kurt’s pretending to study as well, but mostly just sneaking glances across the table at Blaine. “You got a new watch,” he notices, not entirely sure if he meant to do so out loud.
"Hmm? Oh yeah." Blaine lifts his gaze and smiles softly as he presents his wrist. "My brother sent it to me. For my birthday."
Kurt’s head tilts at the word and his eyes brighten a little. “Your birthday? When is it?”
"Um… it was sort of… yesterday," Blaine admits, his cheeks flushing pink as he chews on his lip.
Kurt’s eyes widen at the news and he feels kind of horrible that he didn’t know that already. He’s in love with the boy and he doesn’t even know his birthday. “Oh. I didn’t know. I mean, I would’ve… you should’ve told me.”
Blaine just tries to shrug it off. “I didn’t wanna make a big deal of it or anything. I haven’t really told anyone around here.” But then, he’s fully aware that Kurt’s not just anyone.
Kurt just nods as if he understands. Which he does, but that doesn’t mean he’s just going to let it go.
The next day when classes are over, Blaine heads to his dorm. He doesn’t notice the envelope laying on his bed until he’s finished tossing his blazer over the back of his chair. His name’s written on it and he recognizes the handwriting immediately, smiling as he takes a seat on his bed.
Blaine rips the envelope open, catching the plastic card with the bean on it as it falls out. He opens the card, smile plastered on his face as he reads.
I wanted to make up for missing your birthday and get you the one thing you love the most. All I could think of was biscotti and a medium drip. It seems a little lame, but I hope you like it.
Blaine sighs as he sets the card down on the bed, turning the plastic over between his fingers. One of these days he’ll have to tell Kurt that he already had what he loved most on his birthday. He spent it with Kurt.
