Tied Up To This Feeling (M)
~2,350 words. Inspired by Shakira’s song Underneath Your Clothes. The title is from the song as well, and this is basically just an ode to all the love Blaine and Kurt have for each other and how safe and loved they feel together.
The apartment is quiet when Blaine finally gets home. It’s a stark contrast to what the place looked like just a few days ago when they had their house-warming party, with all of their friends gathered in the small flat, laughing and singing and getting drunk, the noise so much that at some point Blaine could swear he heard the walls shaking with it. Kurt’s cheeks became flushed right after he finished his first drink, and Blaine remembers dancing with him in their new living room, in their new apartment, arms wrapped around each other and bodies pressed close, Kurt’s radiant smile the only thing Blaine could focus on.

As every voice is hanging from the silence
Lamps are hanging from the ceiling
Like a lady tied to her manners
I’m tied up to this feeling
