"You would never make this decision! You would say to wait, let this house go, try again in a year when we had the money. That’s what you’d say to do. I wasn’t going to do that!" Kurt wanted to break something, he was so frustrated. His hands itched at his sides. "I allowed for us to get our home ahead of when it was possible. That’s all I did."
Blaine nodded slowly “Good for you. You heard nothing that I said.” Blaine moved back to the bed “I’m tired. And I’m going to bed.. please leave.” He sat down on the bed. “Kurt, I hold your opinion very high and if you and I talk about this and this decision and you thought it was best.. I probably would have said yes. Shows how much you know me.” Blaine got into bed and laid on his side.
Kurt curled his head to his knees and held his hands in his hair, perched at the end of their bed. He wasn’t wrong. Blaine was being irrational. It wasn’t a big deal. What’d he’d done was generous and selfless. His dad was happy to do it. It was just Blaine’s big ego in the way, that’s all. Kurt huffed and got up from the bed, storming to the guest room and knocking on the door. “Blaine, I’m not going to apologize. I did this for our family even when I didn’t really want to. My dad was happy to help and it was the best thing for our family. You just want the house to be something we did on our own. That wasn’t going to happen and you know it. So suck it up.”
"You’re missing the point to why I am angry. What do you see me as? You made decision.. for our family.. by yourself. You didn’t even think about asking me about this choice." Blaine took a deep breath. "We should make decisions together. I don’t make decision for our family by myself, I always ask you and I always want to talk to about what to do as a family. You didn’t do that. You lied and you thought, I’m too proud. I am proud. That’s true. And yeah, I wanted to get the house on our own, mainly because I’m an adult. I have job, I get a lot money for my job. I saved money for this house when we were broken up. I had it and I used it to help me get better for my family." Blaine sat up and finally looked at Kurt. "I want to be treated as equal in this relationship. I never want to have thing hidden from me. I never want thing hidden from you. I never want to go behind each other backs, for whatever reason, no matter how noble we think it is." Blaine moved over to him and looked him in the eye. "I don’t hide things from you. And I would like it if you didn’t hide things from me. I’m your husband and I honor that we are one. That we are together in decision making and everything else. There are personal decision that we will have to make, but I will always talk to you about them before making my decision. I hope that you would to.. That’s all I have to say. Good night"
Kurt stomped his foot in anger. He’d done this to make Blaine happy. He did this to see his kids run around in a big yard and be happy. Kurt didn’t do this for himself. Kurt didn’t want to live anywhere but an apartment in the city. This was Blaine’sfantasy life, not his. And now Blaine is getting mad because Kurt made that happen? “Why the fuck does it matter, Blaine?! We have the house you wanted! It’s going to be ours as soon as he have money to spend. It’s not a big deal!” Kurt shouted after him, watching him leave. He grunted with anger and picked up the remote next to him and hurled it at the door.
Blaine turned around and looked at him “Because you lied. I would be happy to live in a cardboard box with you. I wanted the house, yeah, I did. Thank you for treating me like a child. Instead of like your partner.” Blaine closed his eyes as he heard the remote hit the door. He closed the door of the guest room and laid on the bed, trying to cool off.
Kurt kept pushing himself closer. “I lied to keep you happy! I wanted you to be happy. We’re going to pay him back for the mortgage. We are. And the loan and everything. Every cent we will pay back. No, I did have to do this. I did.” Kurt shook his head. “What I did was for you. For the kids. It could’ve been forever until we got that loan.”
"You lied! I don’t care why you lied, you lied" Blaine moved further back. "I would never lie to you and about something this big? Really? You could have told me, we could have talked about it, and agreed on something as a couple! But no you had to go behind my back and lie to my face about getting the loan!” Blaine grabbed his pillow and walked over to the door. “Don’t look at me and tell me that had to lie to me. You think you know me so well. If you did, then you wouldn’t have lied.” Blaine said sadly as he walked out of the room.
If he did it for my happiness, then he wouldn’t have taken the money, or he would have told me. He lied and no matter how much I have forgotten, I haven’t forgotten that I hate being lied to. I don’t lie to Kurt, I shouldn’t be lied to for any reason.
Kurt’s face immediately dropped as Blaine started yelling. Blaine must’ve picked up the receiver and heard his and his father’s conversation. Kurt got up as well and pulled Blaine to face him. “No, Blaine. I was going to tell you as soon as we had the money to pay for it. We couldn’t. With you out of work and me an actor there was no way of getting the loan. My dad had to. Please don’t be mad.”
Blaine moved away from him. “Don’t touch me. You lied. You told me got the loan. That we had the house. This isn’t our house! This is your dad’s house. He owns it!” Blaine ran his hands through his hair “I had the money for the house, I had it. And I used it. I had it.” Blaine bit his lip. “I.. I.. Damn it, Kurt. You’re dad didn’t have to do anything. You could have told me we didn’t get the loan. I could have saved.”
OOC: It’s just a tag.
Kurt sat up quizzically, quickly worried that Blaine’s depression was being bad. “Are you okay, baby?” Kurt moved behind him and wrapped his arms around his shoulders. “Is it the depression again?”
Blaine pulled his shoulder away and got up. He rubbed his face and looked at him angry and hurt. “Were you ever going to tell me?! Or do you just think I’m some idiot that would never find out!? Huh!?” Blaine voice was a little raised. The raged that was filling him was coming out. “God damn it!”
Kurt turned back to the book in his lap and read until Blaine came in. When his husband got in bed, Kurt set the book down and cuddled up behind him. He kissed the back of his neck and rubbed his side.
Blaine pulled away from Kurt, moving his head aways as Kurt kissed him. He moved his leg over the edge of the bed and sat up, looking down at the ground. He didn’t even want to really be in the bedroom, so much was going on in his head. He knew that Kurt was never going to tell him about the house. And it pissed him off.
Burt nodded. “That’s up to you, bud. This was your idea. I’m not getting in the way of your marriage stuff. I’m just helping you because I know it means a lot to you.” Kurt nodded and rubbed his face. “Thanks, Daddy. I’ll call you when we starting getting more income to let you know I’ll be sending you money for the house.” Burt chuckled. “I love you, Kurt.” Kurt smiled. “And I love you, too. Bye,” Kurt said as he hung up the phone.
Blaine swallowed thickly as he finished the few plates in the sink and slowly walked back to the bedroom. He was quiet as he sat down on the bed, he didn’t look at Kurt as he got under the covers or when he rolled on side, his back facing Kurt, he stay quiet as he looked at the wall.
Kurt heard the phone ringing and quickly picked it up. His father’s voice greeted him on the other end and he smiled at it’s familiar tone. He didn’t see his dad much, so every call was a blessing. Kurt worried. “What’s up, Dad?” Kurt greeted. His father cleared his throat. “Just wanted to check up on the house situation with you guys. I’m happy to keep paying what I am, but I know you don’t like it.” Kurt nodded. “Blaine’s actually thinking about going back to the album soon, so when that income comes in, I should be able to start paying the mortgage. Don’t know how I’ll tell Blaine, though…” Kurt muttered.
Blaine closed his eyes as he listened to Kurt and Burt talk, he knew that he should have hung up but he couldn’t seem to move. Krut lied to him, he lied. The house they were living in wasn’t theirs, it was Burt’s. Blaine gently hung up the phone so Kurt wouldn’t hear it. And then he stood in the kitchen and looked at the corner top, rubbing his forehead. He looked around the kitchen and started to do the dishes, do anything to keep the fact that his home was not his home but his father-in-law’s home.
Blaine walked from the bedroom to the kitchen to get a drink when the phone rang, he quickly picked it up hoping it wouldn’t wake the babies up. Bay hadn’t been sleeping well and Blaine finally got him to sleep. He didn’t know it but the phone was picked up before he even got to it. Blaine was going to say hello when hear his father-in-law’s voice and he was about to hang up the phone when Burt said something that caught his attention, the house loan.
