Only two thêm to go after this! I hope bạn enjoy the ending of the fic!
Thank bạn so much to all those who have reviewed, it really means the world to me and it makes the nghề viết văn worth it, knowing that people are đọc and liking what they read enough to take their time and leave a comment!
Here goes, this is where the action begins! This was going to be part one of two chapter as the finale but i chẻ, phân chia, split it into 3...so there are two thêm to go!
Blair was đọc in giường when she heard the door to her bedroom creek open, she had that stupid feeling of hoping that maybe it was Chuck. Every time she felt someone walk up behind her, hoặc come in to the house, hoặc every time her phone rang she had a feeling that it could be Chuck, but of course it never was. She thought he might have at least wanted to pick a fight after her awful interview, but obviously he no longer wanted anything to do with her.
She looked up towards her door and saw Marcus walk right in, he smiled at her and she returned the smile, closing her book and putting it down on the giường beside her. She had that uneasy feeling consume her again, the same feeling that had been consuming her for a long time now since Marcus had tried to make a di chuyển on her at the bữa tối, bữa ăn tối party, even though it had been a long time since then it seemed as though he was always trying to get close to her.
He was sometimes so subtle and remorseful about his sudden Kiss at that dinner, that she would always allow it to pass and not make a big deal about it, but that didn't stop her from feeling nervous around him. He walked up to her giường and invited himself to sit down on it, "hey, you're in giường early," he said.
"Yeah, I was just going to read this book for a while." she replied, picking up the book to hiển thị him, he took it from her hands and studied the cover for a while before handing it back to her.
"So, I was thinking...have bạn checked out the Cypher lately, I remember Nate saying something about how Chuck would turn on the portal tracker sometimes. Maybe we could check it out, it would cheer bạn up?" he suggested excitedly.
"Urm, I don't think so, Chuck didn't really like anyone using it other than him." she replied, she knew Chuck would be pissed off if she let Marcus go anywhere near it and even though Chuck wasn't around any thêm she still felt some sort of allegiance to him.
"Come on Blair," he đã đưa ý kiến whilst sliding closer to her, "it'll be fun, we could just see if there are any portals around," he tried to convince her.
"I don't know, we should just leave it, there's no point besides I don't even know how to use the tracker." she lied, she had seen Chuck using it many times and knew she would be able to figure it out after a few tries but she couldn't let Marcus just use the Cypher without Chuck's permission.
He knew he wasn't getting anywhere with his curiosity tactic so he attempted a different way to convince her, "look Blair, Chuck doesn't even care about you, if he did he wouldn't have left you, bạn don't exist to him anymore," he saw the hurt in her eyes and immediately knew it was working, "why do bạn even care about what he thinks, he doesn't care about bạn the way that....the way that I do," he emphasised and she looked at him suspiciously, "I would never treat bạn the way he did, he doesn't even care, why don't bạn just trust me?" he explained whilst stroking her cheek lovingly.
"But...how can I trust you...I haven't known bạn for very long." she tried to argue. Sure he was a gentleman and a fairly nice guy, he took good care of her and was a good friend to her, but she had never considered him as anything more.
"Blair, bạn know bạn can trust me, I've always liked you, we have that special connection, it means we don't even have to know each other completely to know that we can trust each other," he had some sort of effect on her because she hadn't pushed him away as he moved closer to her so he tried to touch a nerve as his final attempt t win her over completely, "I'm willing to commit to bạn unlike him, he'll never tình yêu you, I can..." she let out a breath she had been holding and he took the opportunity to lean in and capture her lips with his. He began climbing towards her as close as he could get whilst kissing her passionately, he knew he had won her over, all he needed was to trick her into falling for him fully and then he would be able to convince her to unlock the an toàn, két an toàn and allow him access to the Cypher, then he would finally be able to find a portal and escape from this world taking the Cypher with him to find a world that would be perfect for him.
Yes it was selfish, but it was selfish of Blair and her Những người bạn to keep the Cypher to themselves, besides, he had been searching for an opportunity like this since he had been sent here with the promise of being found and brought back to the trang chủ that he had left. He had waited years all bởi himself, confused and alone not knowing where he was hoặc who he was and not knowing if he would ever be saved. Finding Blair was like a miracle for him and especially seeing as they had possession of the Cypher he knew he had to get close enough to be able to get his hands on it. He had rummaged this bedroom before but found that the an toàn, két an toàn was securely locked and could only be opened with Blair hoặc Chuck's fingerprints so he knew that Blair was his only hope in getting the Cypher so that he could escape the life he had been force to live for the past few years. He would seduce her into trusting him and and then he would get her to hiển thị him how to use the portal tracker and then when he got the perfect opportunity he would escape with the Cypher and go into hiding until he located a portal.
He was almost there as his hand roamed her smooth body earning a moan from her as he came closer to her centre. She gasped at how far his hands delved up her negligee, he knew she was enjoying this, he could feel himself getting closer to his goal.
Blair couldn't believe how far she had let this go, the truth was she was afraid of him and didn't want to risk rejecting him because she was all alone and he could have his way with her and she would have no where to run. She remembered who she was suddenly, she wasn't weak, she didn't get used, she had been in wars fighting people and man made fighter machines, she had fought some tough opponents in other worlds and Marcus was no match for them. Realising that she had no reason to be afraid of him she pushed him off her and regained her breath but he was on her once again and she began pushing at him demanding that he get off her.
"Marcus! What are bạn doing!" she yelled at him trying to get free of him.
"Blair, just stop struggling, bạn want this, bạn need this." He tried to reason whilst clinging on to her and trying to Kiss her again but was instead met bởi a hard slap on his face. His anger got the better of him and he lashed out at her taking a lung lay, swing at her face without realising what he was doing, he hit her right across the head and she fell to the floor. She cried out in pain as she hit the floor begging him to stop, but he came towards her again shouting obscenities. He grabbed her bởi the wrists as she tried to tug her hands away from him. The tiếp theo thing she knew she was being dragged across the room towards the safe,
"You had to make things difficult didn't you!" he growled whilst pushing her hand towards the finger recognition was so close now, any một giây now and the door would open and the Cypher would be in his sight, he would finally be able to escape this world. He had waited for this moment for so long, trying to win Blair over so that she would open the an toàn, két an toàn willingly and then he could manipulate her into hiển thị him how it works. Having Chuck out of the picture just made it all the thêm easier, but of course the little chó cái, bitch wouldn't co-opertae so he would just have to take it from her the hard way.
"You wont get away with this Marcus! bạn cant take it! It doesn't belong to you!" she yelled as the an toàn, két an toàn door clicked open, there was nothing she could do to stop him now. He would take the Cypher and she would never see him again. How on earth was she going to explain things to the others, to Chuck. He was going to be so furious, he would blame er for this, he would think it was what she wanted, to get rid of the Cypher so that none of them could ever leave this world. hoặc maybe he would think she did it out of spite because she knew how much the Cypher meant to him.
"Oh I'll get away with it, do bạn have any idea how long I've waited for this! bạn should have listened to poor old Chuck....thanks for making him leave the house bởi the way, it made this all the thêm easier." he laughed darkly whilst grabbing her body and throwing her back across the room. Now that the door had opened he didn't need her. Blair went flying onto the floor hitting her back painfully against the hard floor. She cried out in agony and couldn't believe this was happening, he was taking the Cypher, what if he wanted to take her too? When he realised he wont be able to use the Cypher he'll nee her to hiển thị him. The thought of being kidnapped bởi him scared the life out of her. Noticing that he was in the an toàn, két an toàn and not bothering to pay attention to her, she saw it as her opportunity to escape. She got to her feet and raced out of the room tumbling down the stairs in an attempt to get out of the house. She fell onto the floor and scampered to her feet as fast as she could, and she was pretty slow seeing as all she could feel was pain every time she tried to move. Afraid that he would be following her, she continued to run through the mansion until she reached the front door and literally flew out of the front door, once thêm crashing to the ground. She suddenly Mất tích the will to di chuyển and she began sobbing hard onto the concrete ground outside the house praying that it was all just a sick dream. The air left her lungs as she heard hard footsteps running towards her and then she felt his hands drag her to her feet and tighten their grip around her body, she screamed in retaliation and tried to force him off her but all she heard was his voice telling her to be quite.
"Sssh Blair....look at me! Just look at me!" he demanded shaking her as she closed her eyes tightly shut not willing to look her attacker in the eye.
She finally opened her eyes and began to cry at the realisation, "Chuck!" she choked out, "Chuck" she repeated and fell into his arms as he began to soothe her.
"It's ok, it's me, you're safe." he whispered into her hair, glad that he had made it in time.
She clung onto him, trembling and sobbing half believing that it was all a dream because there was no way that Chuck could have known that she needed help. This had to be some fairytale dream where her prince had come to save her from an evil monster who attacked her, but all she could think of right now was how good it felt to finally feel Chucks arms around her and his breath on her neck as he whispered soft comforting words to her. She wanted him to pick her up and take her away and make tình yêu to her and promise her that everything would be ok. But he didn't, instead he lifted her head up and looked at her seriously, "where is he?" he asked and she pointed towards the house not able to say any words., "go to my limo, lock yourself in and don't come out until I come and get you." then he raced towards the house without even taking a look back at her. She was so confused right now, she had no idea how he turned up here and the fact that he had been right about Marcus this whole time made her stomach churn, she felt safe, and all of a sudden she found the will to di chuyển bởi herself as she reached the limousine hurriedly and the driver helped her in, locking the door behind her. She was safe.
Chuck knew that leaving the Cypher in the "Bass" house would be taking a huge risk, but it was just a part of his plan to try and catch Marcus out if Marcus was just a fraud. Chuck had planted cameras in the house to keep an eye on everything and to make sure that he knew exactly when to strike, it was also useful for making sure that Blair would be an toàn, két an toàn and luckily it had come in handy. He raced in to the bedroom and looked around frantically searching for him. He noticed the an toàn, két an toàn was open and he rushed towards it finding it empty. Marcus was gone. He did a quick tìm kiếm of the most obvious places in the house before leaving and going back for Blair. She was still safely locked in the limousine and he reached her as fast as he could. She unlocked the door and he pulled her out as she sobbed onto him and he held her tightly thanking his lucky stars that she was ok. Nothing mattered to him right now other than the fact that she was an toàn, két an toàn and in his arms out of harms way.
She looked up at him with tear filled eyes, "Chuck....i'm so sorry...you were right about everything." she cried as he stroked her cheek adoringly.
He smirked at her in an attempt to lighten the mood, "Well, of course, I'm Chuck Bass." he chuckled softly. She closed her eyes at the sound of his laugh, God, she had missed that laugh and that voice.
"I missed you." she whispered, not realising she had đã đưa ý kiến it out loud. Her eyes were still closed when she felt hot lips invade her mouth with a heated kiss. She clung onto him desperately and kissed him back with as much desperation. They pulled apart finally after what seemed like forever and gazed into each others eyes, Blair was still in tears, even as she forced a warm smile at him.
"I can't believe everything that's happened Chuck...I was so stupid." she sobbed.
"I'm just glad that you're an toàn, két an toàn Blair. I don't know what I'd do if bạn got hurt because of me." he whispered onto her cheek whilst stroking her face with his.
"Because of you? This isn't your fault!" she defended. How could he blame himself when he had been the one to save her.
"Blair...I distanced myself from bạn on purpose ever since the ngày I left our home...I did it so that bạn would get close to Marcus... I knew he was after something...I just didn't know what it was but I was sure that he needed bạn on his side to carry out whatever he had planned....and now we know that all he needed was for bạn to trust him enough to open the an toàn, két an toàn for him." he explained trying to get her to understand. She blinked up at him suspiciously, finally piecing things together...he had forced her out of his life just to play her right into Marcus's hands...all to prove to her that Marcus was using her for the Cypher.
She looked into his eyes and realised that he had only done it to help, " i'm going to ignore the fact that bạn went behind my back and put me at risk and focus on the fact that you're here and bạn saved me from Marcus, for all I know he could have planned on taking me with him!" she sighed in relief.
Chuck reached out and pulled her towards him, looking down at her teasingly, "oh, and what would bạn have done if he had kidnapped bạn and taken bạn away...you could never survive without me," he whispered the last part onto her lips before she frowned at his smug smirk.
"Ugh Chuck....I was doing pretty fine without bạn actually!" she scoffed whilst looking at him angrily.
He smiled at her mockingly and nodded, "mmmhmmm, is that so?" he whispered before brushing his lips over hers. She leaned into his Kiss and accidentally moaned too loudly as he deepened the Kiss savouring the taste of her mouth. She wrapped her hands around his neck, twisting his hair between her fingers and rubbing her hips onto his. He began to feel aroused at her sudden movements and began grinding his hips against hers looking for some sort of release. They pulled back for air but then immediately crashed their lips together again, forgetting all about their games and revenge and the heartbreak and the pain, forgetting about all the fighting and the cheating and the hatred. They were back to bliss and back to feeling that strong connection again. Nothing else mattered right now except the fact that he had come back for her and clearly seemed to have forgiven her for everything and of course the fact that she was kissing him so hungrily as if she had forgiven him for everything too. They were both aware of the fact that they would have to talk about everything one ngày but right now all that mattered was that they were finally on the same page again. That's until they were interrupted bởi a cough coming from behind their limo.
Chuck broke away form Blair after a third cough came from their intruder, he looked at her lovingly before looking past the limo at their new arrival. He smiled seeing that it was Nate and stepped away from Blair, feeling a sudden chill as his body departed hers.
"Chuck, Blair....everything all right, bạn sent me an SOS?" đã đưa ý kiến Nate as he walked toward them, "it seems bạn two have been....catching up?" he smiled as he reflected on the fact that he had caught his two best Những người bạn in a heated kiss.
Blair looked down at her feet, blushing in embarrassment as Chuck looked at her and let out an amused laugh. He dragged his arm over her shoulder and pulled her to his side and she let herself fall against him.
"Well what can I say...we were just reacquainting ourselves with each other." he teased whilst looking down into Blair's embarrassed eyes, "weren't we?" he prodded.
She could have killed him right there for embarrassing her in front of Nate, but that sweet adorable look on Chuck's face softened her and she smiled at Nate before changing the subject, "Nate, what are bạn doing here?" she asked.
"Chuck called me over a couple of days ago...something about Marcus...looks like he was on to something all along." đã đưa ý kiến Nate, as the mood changed to a thêm serious tone.
"Yeah...the fucker has taken off...with the Cypher." added Chuck as Blair looked down in shame. She knew this was all her fault, if she hadn't trusted him into their trang chủ this would never have happened.
Chuck looked at her and tightened his grip on her as if he knew what she was thinking, "it's not your fault Blair....besides we need to fix this...I have it all planned out," he reassured her before turning to Nate, "we need Serena....now." he đã đưa ý kiến to Nate and Nate nodded in understanding before pulling out his phone and calling Serena. She was in New Jersey so It wouldn't take long for her to get to Blair's house.
"Let's go inside and i'll explain everything once Serena gets here. We should eat and get some rest tonight." explained Chuck as he walked Blair inside, Nate followed closely behind whilst talking to Serena on the phone.
After having something to eat Chuck told Blair that she should get some rest whilst they waited for Serena to get here, it would be at least a couple of hours before she got the the city and Chuck and Nate needed to rest too.
Blair avoided asking các câu hỏi about Chuck's supposed plan and decided that she did need rest and she desperately wanted to sleep in Chuck's arms after being away from him for so long. She had also began feeling slight pain in her back and her jaw after her encounter with Marcus so Chuck helped her to her giường and tucked her in. As he was about to leave she grabbed hold of him and begged him to stay with her. He couldn't refuse her pleading eyes so he removed his extra clothing and climbed into giường beside her, relishing in the warmth that radiated between them. How had he managed to be without her for so long. He looked her in the eyes and kissed her passionately before saying goodnight and watching her drift off to sleep before falling asleep himself.
It was morning when Chuck finally awoke, safely nestled into Blair's side. She looked so adorable whilst sleeping and it only made him realise how much he had missed her. He cuddled closer to her and then noticed her di chuyển and breathe out loudly, she was waking up. After a couple of minuted she opened her eyes and took in her surroundings, then she suddenly turned to him as if it were that moment she realised that he was in giường with her. A happy smile broke on to her face and he immediately captured it with his lips, swallowing her smile and making sure her happiness spread into him. He couldn't be thêm happy having her here with him.
"mmmm," she murmured as he released her lips, she smiled at him sweetly, "good morning...Mr. Bass." she giggled teasingly.
He smiled back at her and held her tighter in his arms, "Fuck, you're so sexy...Mrs. Bass." he emphasised, laughing on the inside at the fact that they were supposed to be getting a divorce.
She shied away slightly at his compliment and then kissed him on the lips, she just couldn't get enough of his kisses.
"I missed you...husband." she whispered against his lips. It just felt so good to have him back, she never thought she would ever refer to him as her husband again and for some reason, this morning she felt like repeating it over and over just to make sure that this was really happening.
"I missed bạn too....wife who wishes to divorce me." he joked. She gave him a playful frown before pouting at him.
"You asked for it." she defended, "you left me," she added for good measure.
"You made me leave," he smirked, trying to keep it light between them, "not only that, but bạn totally ruined me with the whole public humiliation thing." he finished, raising an eyebrow at her whilst she ducked her eyes away from his.
She looked up at him after a moment and he saw the regret in her eyes, "I thought bạn were going to...ruin me with your interview..." she looked at him hopefully, wishing he would let it go.
"So bạn thought you'd ruin me before I could ruin you?" he asked seriously.
"You made it seem as though bạn were going to tell the world lies about me and Marcus..." she defended.
"Come on Blair...as if I would ever publicly humiliate you," he whispered to her whilst stroking her cheek, "is it that hard to believe that I actually care about you....a lot." he finished.
She had to admit she was rather shocked bởi his confession, no one had ever shown such emotion towards her before. She had always felt different, like an outcast, abnormal even. She had never imagined that someone like Chuck would ever care. She looked into his eyes and tried her best to believe him, "uuhh...I-I guess bạn never really...made that very clear," she responded not sure if that was actually the case. She couldn't remember a time where he had ever explicitly told her that he cared about her even though she was sure that he had shown her he cared on many occasions, before their break-up.
"Blair, you're my best friend, my soul-mate....we've known each other since we were practically babies...how could bạn ever think that I don't care....," he sighed, he thought she would know how important she was to him, they had been Những người bạn since forever. "I get that i'm not always open about my feelings and sometimes I can be rather indifferent, but I assumed that bạn always knew how I felt." he explained. He knew he had never directly told her how he felt about her and he wasn't sure if now was the right time to bring it up, especially when he had so much to do today.
"I...just never thought you...thought of me that way..." she defended, glad that she was finally getting things out in the open.
"But...before things went...bad...we were happy...we were sleeping together and stuff....why would bạn doubt me after all that?" he questioned, surprised that she had truly believed that he would publicly humiliate her and ruin her.
She went over all the reason in her head, thinking of the right thing to say, but only one explanation stood out to her, "I thought it was just sex to you....just part of our agreement...after bạn left....I thought that bạn ....hated me." she winced, it killed her to even suggest that he would ever hate her, because she had truly believed that he did and that it was the reason he had left.
He was truly bewildered now, how could she ever think that he would hate her, "Blair I could never hate you, even after bạn told the world I cheated on bạn and cost me my most important business deals and potentially ruined my career and all my future prospects in the business world," he smirked softly, "but even after all that I could never actually hate you...for someone so stuck up bạn sure have low self worth..." he chuckled teasingly whilst stroking her cheek.
She looked at him in utter admiration and then realised that he had actually added an insult, "I am not stuck up!" she pouted whilst smacking his arm playfully, "and about the whole ruining your career thing....i'm sorry," she pouted again and he looked back at her smiling sweetly.
"But bạn deserved it after rejecting me the ngày I came to your office!" she scolded, remembering the effort she had put in to seducing him that evening.
"What? The time bạn came to me dressed like a hooker?" he teased jokingly. Her mouth formed a shocked O before she whacked him again on the arm and he laughed at her in response.
"How dare bạn Chuck!" she yelled at him.
"What? bạn looked hot. Like a really hot, sexy, beautiful, classy, hooker." he laughed again. She pouted at him for the hundredth time and he smiled at how much her lips had an affect on him, her pout made him want to maul her lips until she could no longer tease him with them.
"You turned me down!" she reminded him, secretly hoping that he did it to get back at her and not because he actually didn't want her, which is what she had thought.
"I turned bạn down because bạn were the one who wanted me out of your life remember? Turning bạn down that evening was the hardest thing I ever had to do...you totally had me wrapped around your little finger until I realised I couldn't let bạn win..." he đã đưa ý kiến whilst holding her tightly, she moved a leg between his as they lay on their sides joined together in the middle of the bed, "otherwise I would have fucked bạn good and proper right on my desk, my chair, my office floor, the walls; all four and then I would have carried bạn trang chủ over my shoulder and fucked bạn all over again." he growled as she blushed away in embarrassment at his crude choice of words. She giggled quietly as he rubbed his thigh between her legs and stroked his nose against her face lovingly.
"I cant believe I almost Mất tích you," she suddenly đã đưa ý kiến seriously. She looked at him with sad regretful eyes, thinking of all the horrible things that had gone on between them and how much she wished they could go back and do things differently.
"And I almost Mất tích you...but forget that...it's in the past. I'm here now." he reminded her and she smiled in relief.
"You are." she đã đưa ý kiến proudly and snuggled into him, "and bạn smell so good." she giggled.
He laughed at her silly compliment before adding one of his own, "and your breasts are bigger."
She cocked her head up to look at him weirdly, before laughing at him and he laughed back at her before kissing her and rubbing his hands over her chest to xác nhận his trước đó compliment. She moaned in approval as he continued to pleasure her.
Then the door knocked....
Ok...so what do bạn think will happen next.....?
Please review...pretty, pretty please.....it's nearly over now so I would tình yêu to hear your thoughts! How did bạn find Chuck's heroic side? Saving and getting the girl...aaw! And how about the little Chair conversations....you want more? Who do bạn think is at the door...? its obvious really!
