Kurt and Blaine meet at a swimming pool as kids, and then they seemingly can’t get rid of it. In other words, eight years in life, two boys, one pool. PG-13, also on AO3.
The first time Blaine visits the Lima swimming pool, he’s the only boy there. It’s a Sunday and his mom had promised him the day before that she would take him, but when she fell asleep after lunch he didn’t have the heart to wake her. His dad wasn’t home.
It’s almost eight in the evening and he swims laps like he was taught in preschool while his mom sits in a lounge chair by the pool and a small group of teenage girls keeps practicing synchronized swimming in the far left corner.
