“Do you two, like…color coordinate your outfits?” asked Rachel, taking a sip of her coffee. Blaine and Kurt sent her identical glares. She smirked into her coffee. Boyfriends.
“Is it weird that I’m nervous?” asked Kurt.
“I’m nervous, and it’s not even my first day,” said Blaine.
Rachel smiled at the countertenor. “There’s nothing to worry about, Kurt,” she said. “You and I are going to outshine everyone there.”
“Meanwhile, Finn and I will be sitting in our apartment, pretending we don’t exist,” said Blaine, mournfully. His expression was belied by the fistbump that passed between the two boys.
“Please don’t set anything on fire,” said Kurt. “Neither of us are going to be home until late.”
“What?” said Finn.
“I have an audition,” said Rachel, smiling.
“What, already?” asked Finn.
“I know, right? And you don’t even have a job, Finn,” said Blaine, chuckling.
“He’s working on it,” said Rachel. Finn shook his head behind her. She turned, and he smiled sweetly at her. She rolled her eyes at him, kissing his cheek and sliding out of her chair. “Kurt, we’ve gotta go.”
“Bye, babe,” said Blaine, kissing his boyfriend’s cheek. “Go be fabulous.”
Kurt and Rachel exited the cafe, leaving Finn and Blaine sitting at the table. The two boys sat in companionable silence for a few minutes.
“Call of Duty marathon?” suggested Finn.
“Absolutely,” said Blaine.
