the smile on julian's face

Kurt is awoken the following morning by Sebastian’s arm snaked around his waist, the heavy down comforter clumsily wrapped around them both (since they had made love burrito-ed inside it and then just sort of shifted it at the end to cover whatever body parts could feel the chill), and Julian’s devious face smiling at him through a crack in the tent door flap.

He appears completely dressed, though Kurt can only see the broad shoulders and long neck of him, but his electric eyes are brimming with unleashed sarcastic commentary.
