Summary: Enchanted by the mysterious transfer student to Dalton Academy, Blaine doesn’t think he can manage to introduce himself, let alone befriend, the fiercely independent Kurt Hummel. Then a chance meeting sparks a lasting friendship that has Kurt and Blaine instantly inseparable. Kurt’s research into Westerville’s past brings his attention to the mysterious death of a Dalton student some twenty years previous, and before Blaine can move beyond contemplating whether his friendship with Kurt is something more, they find themselves dealing with bullies who know more than they should and the threat of a much deadlier foe.
