The piece of paper is frayed and worn thin in places where fingerprints have smeared the ink into blue-black bruises. Fold lines cross like rivers and roads on the page like a map, cutting words into half and crinkling some illegibly in others. Unsure hands shake as the note is pulled from a back pocket for the thousandth time—for the last time. There has been careful work put into this small piece of paper; careful, attentive consideration put into every word.

Another tear slips from Kurt’s eye as he stands over the bed. He looks at Blaine’s peaceful, sleeping form, reaches out a hand to stroke back loose hair fallen over his forehead; Blaine sighs, shifts, and his lips move up into something like a ghost of a smile. Kurt knows this is for the best, knows all the pain he’s caused Blaine and knows that it needs to stop before it balloons into something greater and irrevocable.
(Though it could be argued that what he’s about to do is so much worse.)
