Adventure time again!

Sorry for any mistakes in this; I'm currently on a train to Chicago and it's early!

"Hey Z...?" Kurt asked quietly, head still resting limply on Zisteau's shoulder.

"Hm?" Zisteau hummed quietly, gaze cast out on the rain that still fell from the cloudy sky, though not as heavy as the day before.

"Tell me more about your brother."

"....Okay?" He said slightly confused.

"I mean... If you're willing to, that is..."

He couldn't help but chuckle lightly. "Of course I'm willing to silly."

"I just didn't know if it was a touchy subject..."

"Of course it's a touchy subject, but talking about it helps I suppose." He paused briefly, pulling the old picture from his pocket. "My brother and I used to be close. Really close. He was like my best friend; I used to tell him everything. He was the first person I came out to; and he accepted me without even questing it. He told me 'Zisteau, you liking guys doesn't bug me; so don't let any of the haters get to you. They're all judgemental assholes.'"

"He sounds like a great guy."

"He was. He really was. He really helped shape who I am."

"You miss him?"

"Of course I do. But, he's gone and I know he is. There's nothing I can do about it."

"Have you visited his grave recently?"

He shook his head sadly. "No, not since I was kicked out of my town."

"Are you gonna go back home?"

"I probably should at some point, but I'm not sure. They probably won't want me back, honestly."

"It's worth trying though, right?"

"I suppose so." He paused briefly, a thought coming to mind. "Are you ever gonna go back home?"

Kurt froze. "I-I." He lets out a deep breath. "I guess I'll have to at some point... But I don't know what's left there for me."



"I know you're still hurting Kurt... You try to hide it, but it's easy to tell."

Kurt simply sighs, moving back from Zisteau slightly; just enough to meet his eyes. "I only try to hide it so I seem stronger than I actually am, I guess."

"But you are strong Kurt. And showing your feelings makes you even stronger."

"You've said that before...."

"Because it's true."

Kurt sighs again. "You know I don't believe it."

"I know, and I'm determined to find a way to make you believe that you are."

"You're persistent."

"Of course I am! Did you expect any less of me?" He teased with a goofy smile.

A smile spread across Kurt's perfect lips as he laughed softly. "I expected more, to be honest." He replied snarkily.

"Oh did you now?" He smirked slightly, mischief burning in his blue-green eyes.

"I did indeed."

His smirk grew as his fingers found their way into Kurt's soft brown hair. He leaned in, pressing his lips to Kurt's; which were far softer than he'd ever imagined. Kurt kissed back slowly, his hands moving to rest on Zisteau's shoulders.

"That closer to what you expected?" He asked after their lips had parted, eyes finally opening again.

"I-I'm not sure." Kurt stuttered out, his cheeks red, and an undeniably adorable smile gracing his lips.

He let out a breath of laughter, the air teasing Kurt's lips. A thought grasped his attention. "Was that your first kiss?"

Kurt nodded, looking slightly embarrassed. "Y-yeah..."

He placed a kiss on Kurt's nose. "I think that's adorable."

Kurt's cheeks instantly became a few shades darker as he laughed nervously.

"You know, you're one of the cutest people I've ever met."


"You just are beautiful, you just are."

He placed a kiss on Kurt's head before standing up and walking towards the small balcony and pushing the doors open gently. He stepped out onto the damp wood and looked out at the dull world. The sky had started lighting up; becoming a pale grey instead of a sickly green. The rain had stopped falling at some point during the movie they'd been watching. He took in a deep breath; smelling the acidic rain that had fallen and now rested in puddles littering the dead grass.

"We should be able to leave today." He commented, walking back into the room; eyeing the man who still sat amongst the nest of blankets and pillows on the floor.

"Okay." Was the man's answer as he stood up slowly.

He helped get the blankets back on the bed and straightened up the room before grabbing his satchel and heading for the door. He started down the stairs slowly, helping Kurt along the way so he wouldn't falling from his lack of depth perception.

"You guys leaving?" Beef asked from behind the bar.

He nodded. "Yeah, if we want it to Goodneighbor by tonight then we have to go within the hour."

"I see." Beef comments, wiping a glass. "Well it was good seeing you Z; it had been too long."

That made a smile tug at his chapped lips. "It was good seeing you too."

"And Kurt; it was nice meeting you. Glad things worked out for the two of you."

"It was nice meeting you too, Beef." Kurt said with a small smile, shaking the hand that was held out to him.

Beef and Zisteau shared a quick hug. "Where's Pause?"

Beef shrugs. "Said something about hunting as he left about thirty minutes ago."

"Ah, well tell him it was great seeing him again for me."

"I'll make sure he knows." Beef said; that kind and warm smile spread across his lips.

"We'll be off then; see you later Beef."

"See ya Z, Kurt."

He held out his hand for Kurt to take and the two headed hand in hand out into the humid mid-afternoon air. He kept his shotgun in hand as they walked; knowing that he'd eventually have to use it. But; mostly because he would protect Kurt over anything else, including himself; for the little time he'd known Kurt, the shy man had become one of the most important things in this cruel, cruel world.
