A/N: Yes, I have started yet another story. This idea came to me weeks lalu and it will not leave me alone, so I have to write. It follows the tunjuk entirely, but my idea is to just give some deleted scenes that we haven’t seen before. Not all will be C/B, but all characters will be included eventually. Each chapter will cover two episodes. Enjoy!
Blair smoothed her black koktel dress down her legs which was still ruffled from the harried way that she had been trying to get Nate to finally meterai the deal with her. That is until Serena had barged in at her party and disrupted everything- just like always.
She paced around her room, looking for a way to get her former best friend out of her mind, but she was unsuccessful. She finally turned around to look at her boyfriend, who looked like he would rather be anywhere than where he currently was.
“I can’t believe that she had the nerve to come to my party and bail a minit later. Why is she even back here? We’ve been fine for the last tahun without her. Why does she have to ruin everything now?”
A frown appeared between Nate’s brows, but he didn’t say anything.
Blair put a hand on her hip and asked, “Are anda even listening to me, Nate?”
“Of course,” he rushed to placate her. “I’m just a little Lost as to why anda aren’t happy that Serena is back. You’re best friends, Blair. Why wouldn’t anda be happy that she’s obviously back?”
Was he really asking her that? Did he not even remember what had happened since Serena has been gone? Didn’t her own boyfriend even care what she had been going through and how much turmoil there had been in her life?
“You can’t be serious,” She looked into Nate’s face and knew that he was though. He had a bored and blank look radiating from his face, like he could care less what this conversation was about atau where it was heading. “You are though, aren’t you?” Blair whispered, as though if she didn’t say the words, that she could fool herself into believing that Nate cared enough to know how much Serena being back would upset her.
Nate shrugged his shoulders, as if he didn’t care.
Her voice took on a pleading tone. “Nate, how could anda think that Serena and I would ever be best Friends again?”
“Why can’t you? I just want things to go back to normal, Blair.” Nate remarked on a huff of annoyance.
“Well, they can’t,” she practically screamed. “Serena left and she didn’t even tell me that she was leaving! What kind of a best friend does that?” When she didn’t get an answer from Nate, she plowed on. “I was having a crisis when she left. My father had just left my mother for another man, and that was around the time we started to have problems, Nate.” Blair mentioned with a pointed look at him. “She didn’t even care enough to be around. I can never forgive that.”
She noticed that indifferent stance that Nate had taken and he looked like this wasn’t any of his concern and that it should be something that she should talk to Serena about.
She walked quietly and quickly over to Nate and looked deeply into his eyes. She couldn’t read him anymore. “Why have things been different between us lately? Ever since Serena went over to boarding school, you’ve been distant and Berlakon like anda don’t care anything about me.”
Nate rolled his eyes toward the heavens and sighed. “This is just because you’re pissed about Serena, Blair!” his voice started to rise. “You want to blame everything on her and that includes our problems.”
She shook her head and let a tear slide down her cheek that had been wanting to escape for the last several minutes. “That’s not true. I just want my boyfriend back. The boyfriend who used to be loving and caring.”
He laid an arm gently on her shoulder and even seemed hesitant to touch her. “Nothing is different, Blair. We’re working out our problems and that’s that.”
“Are anda sure?”
“Oka..,” she noticed his hand on the door knob and stopped what she had been saying. “Where are anda going?”
“Uh, I figured I would try and catch up with Serena. I haven’t seen her in a tahun and I’m anxious to see her and find out how she’s been.”
“Now?” Her voice came out as merely a whisper.
Nate pushed a lock of his hair back and gently kissed Blair on the cheek. “Yeah, I’ll find anda later.”
He opened the door and a saat later it clicked softly behind him. Blair didn’t try to keep the tears at bay any longer. Her party had been ruined, Serena was back, and obviously, Nate didn’t care about her. She threw herself on her katil and clutched a bantal while she continued to cry. Everyone preferred Serena over her. It was common knowledge. Her boyfriend had just left to go be with her. What would Gossip Girl have to say about this?
The Wild Brunch
As Dan took off in a hurry after finding out that Serena had slept with Nate, Blair found herself aimlessly wandering around the brunch. She finally found herself in a deserted hallway and she crumbled to the floor. What was it going to take to get Nate to stay away from Serena? She had caught them together, yet again. She didn’t believe either one of their excuses either, especially Nate’s. He always wanted to see Serena and she couldn’t stop him any longer. She felt the tears building up in her eyes again, but she refused to shed anymore tears over her former best friend and her boyfriend. If this is what they wanted, then fine.
She felt a figure looming over her and she slowly looked up into the dark, cynical eyes of Chuck Bass. She placed a hand over her head and asked, “What do anda want?”
“You’re the one that is outside of my room, sweetheart.” His tone was indignant, but also full of humor which was unusual for Chuck.
“Oh,” she berkata in a small voice. She was embarrassed. She picked herself up off the floor and dusted the imaginary dust speckles from her white eyelet dress. She started to make her way back down the hallway, when he called out to her.
“Blair, wait.” She turned back around and saw that Chuck was advancing towards her. He met her and placed both of his hands on her shoulders. His breath whispered across her face as he said, “You still have my key, don’t you?”
Fuck. She had forgotten about that. The key that Chuck had telah diberi her to jump Nate in his suite. The key that had brought Serena and Nate together again. The key that had ruined her life even more.
She nodded her head once and he held out his hand for the key. She searched for it in her dompet, beg tangan and dropped it in his hand.
Chuck didn’t drop his hand from her shoulders, but instead said, “Come with me for a minute.”
Blair heaved a sigh, but followed him anyways. He inserted the key into the lock and the door opened soundlessly. She followed him inside his suite.
She looked at his black eye and tried to stifle a laugh. “You’re losing your touch, Bass. How could anda let Humphrey throw anda into a meja, jadual and punch you?”
She could tell that Chuck’s ire was rising as he glared at her. “He’s got nothing on me, Waldorf.” He snarled. “I could destroy him if I wanted to. I fucking hate him.”
Blair collapsed on bahagian, atas of his spacious bed. “I hate Serena.” She muttered.
She knew that she appeared desolate, but she couldn’t help herself. She heard his footsteps rather than saw them. “Are anda alright, Blair?”
“No,” she cried a minit before he was beside her and gently wrapping an arm around her shoulders. “Why does he want Serena? Why her?”
Chuck sighed heavily and cradled her against his chest. “I don’t know Blair, but he’s always been fascinated sejak Serena.”
She had just been about to rest her head on his chest when it all came roaring back to her. “You!” she berkata as she came to a sitting position. “You knew about them and never told me.”
“Why would I tell you?” he asked her curiously and she was still fighting him, but he moved her head to his chest again. “Nate is my best friend and I would never do anything to betray that.”
“You’re right,” she hiccupped against his chest. “No one ever thinks that I’m important enough to tell anything.”
“Blair,” he admonished. “I’m not good at this.” When she gave him a questioning look, he explained further, “I’m not good at comforting someone, but anda know that you’re much better than Serena in every way. She has nothing on you.”
“Do anda really think so?” Blair asked in a small voice, as the tears still were streaming down her face.
“You know that I do.”
“I just don’t understand why he doesn’t want me.”
“It’s his loss, Blair. He’ll come to his senses and everything will be fine between you. That’s how it’s always been.” She was silent for a few minit and Chuck finally asked, “Blair?”
He glanced down at her and noticed that she had fallen asleep. He grinned at the thought. A few minit later he had moved his body to a sleeping position and was closing his eyes seterusnya to hers, and drifting off to sleep.
Hours later, he awoke and the first thing he noted was that Blair was gone. He could still see the indentation on the pillow, so she hadn’t been gone long. He closed his eyes and smiled. She had gone back to Nate. Just like she always would. That was the way it was supposed to be. He wondered why he didn’t feel lebih relieved sejak that.
