A/N: in light of the storms that have been hitting the southeast US the past couple of days, I thought this was a fitting story to edit and re-post.

It began as a typical afternoon at the Hudson-Hummel house. As usual, Blaine was over at after school to spend time with his boyfriend without fear of judgment and to work on homework with him. The two teenagers were making their way through some biology homework when the sky suddenly turned dark. Since this time of year was usually full of thunderstorms, neither Kurt nor Blaine thought anything of it. While looking for the answer for some question about cell division, the boys were startled by a sudden, loud clap of thunder.
“Was it supposed to storm today?” Blaine asked, looking towards the window.
“No, but I guess it’s going to,” Kurt responded nonchalantly. “Have you figured out the answer to number 4 yet?”
“I think so,” Blaine answered, flipping through his textbook to where the answer was. “Look at the second paragraph on page 53 and see if that makes any sense.”
They continued doing their homework, feet linked as the storm grew worse. Thunderstorms at this particular time of year were always unpleasant, usually even severe. The boys knew what to do if anything bad should happen, but being home by themselves was just a little unnerving. They were both hopeful that it was just a small storm that would quickly pass over them and be over.
Then the power went off.
