summary: After going through a rough breakup with Kurt, Blaine just wants to convince everyone that he’s fine. Which turns into him convincing Sebastian to be his fake boyfriend. The problem is, the longer they date, it occurs to both of them that their feelings for one another aren’t fake at all.
Part four of four. (Part one , two & and three)
A week goes by, snow falls, a funeral is planned.
He gets texts from Sebastian; at least he’s reading these ones. For a while he couldn’t bear to; it’s selfish, he knows that, and Sebastian doesn’t deserve it either. The texts are innocent, warm in a way that makes his heart feel like a cinder block. That kind of weight that feels tight in the confines of his ribcage.
He misses him but he…he just can’t.
And soon Sebastian seems to understand that he’s being ignored because the texts stop coming. Blaine doesn’t know whether he’s relieved or disappointed by the silence.
“Haven’t seen Sebastian in a while.” His mother hovers in his doorway and he pauses the movie he’s watching so that he can pay attention. Once he meets her gaze though he has to look away and plays with the strings fraying in his one blanket. Maybe he should have kept the film going for background noise.
“Yeah,” He says softly, shrugging his shoulder. “He’s busy.”
His mother hesitates far too long for his liking but instead of leaving down the hall like he thinks she might she comes into his room and sits beside him on his bed. “Too busy to come see you when you’re hurting?” She asks skeptically. “I doubt it.”
“I’m fine.” He says, all too quickly.
She says nothing to that. He is. He’s fine.
