Blaine was walking quickly under the late October rain. He was meeting Kurt at a coffee place two blocks away from his work. They really needed to talk: they could barely be alone together and they hadn't had sex in months. Blaine wondered how they could have let their relationship crumble to pieces like this. He kept asking himself this question, and the only answer he came up with was that maybe he didn't want to save this relationship. Maybe he'd waited until it was too late to save it.
He was so caught up in his thoughts that he almost passed by the coffee shop without noticing it. He went in, and Kurt was already at a table, waiting for him with two cups.

"Medium drip," Kurt offered as Blaine sat down in front of him.

Blaine was hit by a wave of memories. He saw Kurt and himself, back in high school. He remembered first loves, coffee orders, and all the good times they had, at a table just like this one. For a minute, he just stared at Kurt, unable to speak, wondering if he could really say goodbye to all of this.

"You wanted to talk?"

Kurt spoke and Blaine looked at him – really looked at him – for the first time in weeks. He realized he didn't recognize him anymore. He wasn't that boy he had madly fallen in love with three years ago.

"Kurt, it's not working. I don't even know you anymore."

Kurt nodded, on the verge of tears.

"I don't think we can fix us anymore. But I think you deserve the truth."

Kurt looked up, surprised and curious.

"Last year, when I was still in Lima, Finn and I had a – a thing. I mean, we slept together."

Kurt looked stunned.

"Finn?"
Blaine nodded and kept explaining. "It was just a one-time thing. I tried to get over him, to give you and me a chance... But the truth is... I'm in love with Finn."

Blaine had never admitted this to anyone, not even himself, but he knew right then and there that it was true.

"I still love you, Kurt. But I'm not in love with you. I don't think we can stay together like this."

Kurt nodded, and he was crying, but he looked at Blaine, and he smiled through his tears.

"Blaine, I have to tell you the truth too. I slept with Rachel. I mean, we were drunk, but I think I'm in love with her."

Blaine was crying too, now, but they were tears of relief. He had been so afraid to hurt Kurt, but actually he just set him free to be with the one he really loved. He leaned in and pulled Kurt into a hug. They cried like this for a long time, finally feeling safe into each other's arms.

"I hope you'll be happy with her, Kurt."

"And I hope we can stay friends. And I ask that in a totally non-cliché way."

They laughed through their tears, and Blaine kissed him on the cheek.

"Of course we can."

***

Kurt had been nursing the same drink for an hour now. He didn't feel like getting drunk tonight, and Rachel understood, even though she had proposed a night out to take his mind off the break-up.

"Do you wanna talk about it?" she asked gently. "Why did you guys break up?"

He sighed and shrugged. "It just wasn't working anymore. We fell out of love, I guess."

Rachel took a sip of her drink and tried to ignore this strange feeling of hope rising in her chest. Kurt was distractedly playing with the straw in his cocktail. It didn't seem like he had anything else to say so she pulled him to his feet.

"Come on, let's dance!"

He followed her, dragging his feet at first, but he let himself enjoy it after a little while. Rachel prided herself for that: she always got told her enthusiasm was contagious.

They weren't drunk, this time, and Kurt needed some time to heal from the break-up. As much as she wanted to press up against him as they danced, she made sure to keep a reasonable distance from him.
It was going quite well, but then she noticed him staring at her, not once taking his eyed off her.
She held his gaze and could feel the sexual tension rising around them. He ran his hands down her arms, resting them lightly on her hips. He wasn't pulling her closer, but she was irresistibly attracted towards him. They were soon pressed together, and if she leaned in, she could just...

He leaned in and pressed their lips together. She parted her lips to deepen the kiss and let out a breathless moan. A moan that sufficed to express all the longing, the repressed feelings, everything she had been craving all these months. He broke the kiss, and she felt like she was drowning, but he kept her close, whispering in her ear.

"Do you wanna get out of here?"

Rachel nodded and followed him out of the club. Kurt spoke up as soon as they got out.

"Rachel, we need to talk."

Rachel stopped in her tracks, worried by the tone of his voice, but he took her hand and pulled her along as he continued talking.

"There's another reason Blaine and I broke up. I'm in love with you, Rachel; I have been ever since that night, on New Year's Eve."

Rachel's jaw dropped and she couldn't speak – her mind went completely blank. Kurt stopped to face her. Looking worried, he took her hands between his.

"Look, I'm sorry I just dropped this on you. I just needed to be honest with you - and with myself. I'd understand if – “

Rachel finally snapped out of her stupor.

"I love you too," she said quickly, relieved that she finally let go of that burden.

Kurt was looking at her like he couldn't believe what was happening. She hated to crush him when he looked so happy, but she had to tell him the truth – even if she felt like she was about to burst from all her mixed emotions.

"But I can't just break up with Finn," she continued. "I love him, and it would kill him, he just got here in New York..."

"I think he'll be fine..."

"Kurt, he basically left everything behind just for me. He has nothing else, here."

"Rachel, there's something you need to know. Blaine was the one who initiated the break-up. Because he cheated on me... With Finn."

Rachel couldn't believe it. She was mad at him for cheating, even though she had done the same. She also couldn't figure out how they had managed to stay this long in a relationship when both of them were obviously unhappy in it. But a small part of her mind insisted on pointing out how perfect it would be if Finn and Blaine got together – then she could be with Kurt.

"Was it a one-time thing?" She cursed herself for asking, but she needed to know.

"Yes, but Blaine said he's in love with Finn."

Rachel couldn't stop the little smile that crept on her face.

"Alright, I'll talk to Finn," she finally said.

"Great." Kurt's smile was brighter than ever before.

He pulled her closer and rested his hands on her hips. Shivers ran down her spine as he closed the distance between them. Their lips met, and for the first time in months, she felt happy.
