~890 words of domestic schmoop inspired by some accessories I saw recently. <3 PG-ish except for a swear and a sexual reference.
Kurt could honestly say he’d never imagined that the first place he and Blaine would rent as a married couple would be a boring apartment in Lima, but if he had to choose between that apartment or the horrendous silence of the loft in the months after Blaine had moved out, he would pick the basic condo with Blaine every time.
“Remember,” he said when they moved in, “we’re not really gonna decorate this place, since we’re moving back to New York in two months anyways. This is just a place to come back to before we find our real home in the city.”
“Somehow I don’t think I’m the one who’ll have to remember this,” Blaine teased, leaning in for a quick kiss. “I can’t believe you gave up the loft, though.”
“It was never your home. I get that now,” Kurt said. “We need a place where both of us feel comfortable, and we need a place where I haven’t already stamped my mark so much that there isn’t room for you. A new apartment is the only way to get that, even if it’s guaranteed to be the size of my closet back at Dad’s.”
“So…how many listings do you already have bookmarked?”
“Six,” Kurt admitted. “And I plan to show them to you once we’ve finished settling in here.”
“I can hardly wait,” Blaine said, voice soft and sincere. “Shall we get to it?”
