Sam/ConnorIntervention or Revelation
Will Schuester watched his Glee kids flourish and grow with each obstacle overcome and each new member that joined their ranks. He was incredibly proud of what the kids had accomplished during their two years in the club- three sectional titles, one regional title, and a placement at nationals. If Will suspected right then they would be bagging another regional title this time round too. For a Glee Club in their third year it was doing incredibly well at getting its footing.
Will would always worry about members of the club as if they were his own children- he would worry that he indulged Rachel a little too much- worry about Santana and how she was coping with her sexuality now it was publicly known- and more recently taken to worrying about Sam. He was happy to have Sam back in their ranks but it seemed this Sam had changed significantly since he had left. He had returned to Lima with a boyfriend a year older and a more realistic if not cynical view on the world.
Will had only met Sam’s boyfriend, Connor, in passing a few times. The teen had seemed sullen and silent at all times, staying by Sam’s side and talking to no-one unless asked a direct question- and even then the answer was short and terse. Will tried at first not to judge- Sam had just figured out he was bisexual and his family was okay with it and allowed both to come to Lima and live together. It seemed a little odd but it was okay. Sam was happy and everything was okay.
Will then saw Connor beat up some jocks which had decided to try and intimidate him because he was in a relationship with Sam. Connor was quick and efficient in his fighting and had the jocks on the ground within seconds. Connor, who was smaller and thinner than Sam, had taken down jocks who were bigger than Sam easily and Will found himself worrying about Sam…
Sam was strong in many ways but Connor was obviously dangerous and knew how to fit- what types of things was Sam being exposed to or being taught by Connor? Worried Will had gone to talk to Emma about his concerns.
“I know Sam’s parents allowed it but I don’t know if Connor is safe for Sam,” Will stated with concern.
“I think we should trust Sam’s parents about this Will, they obviously weren’t concerned and from I understand Connor was practically living with them back in Cleveland. I admit he seems a little odd and has an air of danger but have you heard any concerns from the kids about Sam being bruised or anything which would make it seem as if he is unhappy?” Emma replied with a sweet smile on her face as she clasped her hands in front of her. She always wanted to see the best in people and often when Will’s mind ran away with him she brought him back to reality with a few well placed words.
“I still think I should talk to him about it all. Even if just to let him know that there is someone who he can talk to that’s an adult,” Will said with a grim smile.
It wasn’t until a few days later that Will had the time to talk to Sam- even though that meant going over to the apartment that Sam lived in. But catching one member of the Glee Club alone was difficult to do without the others eavesdropping outside the door.
Sam let Will into the apartment with a tired smile. The lights were on low and curtains drawn despite the early hour. Will couldn’t see Connor anywhere.
“What’s the matter Mister Schue?” Sam asked while rubbing the back of his neck.
“I just wanted to make sure everything was okay, since you and Connor are here on your own and everything,” Will asked while looking around the small living room/dinning room. There wasn’t anything unusual except the first aid kit (a rather large one) lying on the sofa.
“Sam?” Will questioned with worry while nodding at the first aid kit.
“I’m fine,” Sam answered with a sheepish grin but there was a tinge of worry in his eyes.
“And Connor?” Will pressed. Sam shot him a surprised look as if the other was surprised that Connor had being asked after.
“He’s fine- will be fine,” Sam nodded towards the bedroom door which was open. Will could just about make out a lump in the darkened room on the bed.
“What happened?” Will asked with concern.
“We were out food shopping and these guys started harassing us- one pulled a knife and Connor stepped in front of it. They were aiming for me Mr Schue,” Sam stuttered out with a teary expression.
Will pulled the other into a hug and thanked his stars that one of his kids was unharmed. They broke apart when a rustle was heard from the bedroom and Sam shot towards the room with Will following behind.
Will looked in to see Connor laid under the sheets on his side- his arm was bandaged up and there was sweat on his forehead and bare chest. Sam walked around to behind Connor and laced his fingers into the other teens and pressed a kiss on the wet brow.
“Hey there,” Sam whispered with a smile.
“You okay?” Connor asked with a croak.
“I’m fine thanks to you,” Sam replied, “Mr Schue is here.”
Will gave a smile and half-wave as blue eyes darted to his form.
“I was just coming to check everything is okay, you have my number Sam. I’ll leave you both to it. It’s seems you have everything well handled,” Will nodded to them and let himself out.
It seemed all his worries were for nothing. Sam was perfectly safe with Connor.
