Drabble: Blaine takes part in the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge
Blaine rubbed his hands together in anticipation, jogging on the spot for a few steps as Kurt finished filling the bucket with cold water in the kitchen. He was on the roof of the loft, having decided he wanted more room to do the challenge. The fire escape wasn’t practical and the street below had too many pedestrians passing by for his liking.
Kurt was carrying a bucket of water, filled almost two thirds of the way, in one hand with a bag of ice in the other. When he caught Blaine’s eye, he gave him a wry smile before placing the bucket down.
“Are you sure you don’t want to put a t-shirt on?” Kurt asked. He ripped over the bag with his fingers and began pouring the ice into the bucket. Blaine was wearing a black vest and a pair of loose yoga pants, which was the outfit he usually worn on their lazy Sundays together. Despite Kurt’s question, Blaine didn’t miss the way Kurt’s eyes hungrily swept over his chest and his bare arms, appreciating the way the vest was a little snug now.
“I’m fine in this,” Blaine said, giving Kurt a playful smile.
The Ice Bucket Challenge had seemingly come out of nowhere, sweeping across the celebrity world and filling Kurt’s Twitter and Facebook feeds up with men and women crying out or swearing as they had cold water tipped over their heads in the name of charity. The challenge had somehow found itself on the NYADA blogs, with students nominating each other. A friend of Elliott who was a senior at NYADA had nominated Elliott, who in turn had nominated Blaine.
