A/N: So, guess who finally updated. Yeah, I’m sorry about the horribly long wait, but I’m not going to lie, I had absolutely NO IDEA what to write. So, after nghề viết văn this chapter I have decided:
THIS IS THE LAST CHAPTER OF THIS STORY!!!!!! I like how it ends, and if I even try to write more, I’d just be leaving bạn all with increasing longer breaks in between chapters.
Plus, I’m thinking of nghề viết văn stories for my newest obsession, James and Lily (Harry Potter), cause I have tons of ideas for them.
THANK bạn ALL FOR đọc THIS STORY!! Hope bạn enjoy this chapter!!!
P.S. The first part of this is just a little something I was thinking of for awhile as a drabble but thought it was cute in the beginning of this story.
“Ugh, not again,” Serena grumbled as she threw her ringing phone onto the bed. She turned to walk into the bathroom.
“Avoiding someone?” Chuck asked, causing Serena to scream and jump.
“What are bạn doing in my bathroom?” She yelled.
Chuck took a drag of the cigarette he was holding, “Well if I lit up in my bathroom, the folks would know it was me, sis.”
“First thing, let’s get one thing straight. I am not your sister. I do not share any of your DNA, nor do I ever wish too. Now get out,” she pulled on his arm slightly, right as he caught sight of another girl walking into the bathroom.
“You might not wish too, but I know someone who might,” he smirked as he grabbed Blair to give her a, much too long for Serena’s liking, kiss.
“Ummm… what are bạn two doing in Serena’s bathroom?” Blair asked once Chuck had released her.
“I am trying to take a shower,” Serena hissed, glaring at Chuck.
“And she’s avoiding someone,” Chuck countered, knowing that this would distract Blair.
“Who?” Blair immediately snapped, while grabbing Chuck’s cigarette and snuffing it out, ignoring his angry look.
“No one…” Serena tried to seem serious, but upon Blair’s ‘I know you’re lying’ look, gave in. “Ok, I’m avoiding Dan.”
“But I thought that bạn two…” Blair trailed off, trying to explain what she thought happened between Serena and Dan.
“We were,” Serena started, then sighed, “But then I heard my mom and Dan’s dad talking about… it. And it was just too weird so I decided to end things. Luckily it was right as Dan’s old friend came back trang chủ so I’ve been using that as an excuse, but he won’t stop calling.”
Blair was just about to respond when someone called for Serena from downstairs. “Ugh, not thêm wedding planning,” she grumbled as she glared at Chuck before walking out of the bathroom.
Chuck laughed underneath his breath as he picked up a new joint. “I wasn’t expecting to see bạn today,” he smirked at Blair.
“I wasn’t expecting to come over today, but Eleanor has just returned from her first business trip since…” she trailed off.
Chuck just nodded as he got down from where he was sitting, wrapping his arm around her shoulders and kissing her head. “And instead bạn chose to grace the wedding planners with your presence. I know they loved bạn the last time bạn were here.” He paused then, turning to her with a serious look on his face, “unless bạn came for another reason.” At this he couldn’t stop the smirk that lit up his face.
Blair ignored his bình luận as they walked into the dining room, greeted with the whole family at the table. Lily was simultaneously shouting orders to the various planners running around, while lecturing Serena about the importance of hygiene.
“Charles,” Bart greeted him, Chuck automatically taking a ghế, chỗ ngồi as though ordered. “Blair,” he đã đưa ý kiến unsurely, almost as though he hadn’t expected her to be there even though his face showed no sign of this.
“Mr. Bass,” she acknowledged as she sat down and started helping herself to the thực phẩm on the table.
During the tiếp theo lull in Lily’s talk, Bart turned to Chuck, “As Best Man, I expect bạn to keep everything going smooth before the wedding.”
Chuck, who had just been about to take a drink, froze. Then after a slight nudge from Blair he started again, “Uh… of course, father.”
His dad nodded his head before returning to his newspaper. Chuck looked down at his plate, before turning to look at Blair, who was beaming at him, not able to help a small smile from gracing his face.
“Ugh, I’m just going to go throw up now,” Serena đã đưa ý kiến upon seeing her Những người bạn display of affection.
“Maybe bạn should just take a vòi hoa sen instead,” Eric đã bình luận right before she left the room.
“She’s freaking out,” Serena practically yelled as she pulled Blair aside, earning an angry look from Chuck, who Blair was talking to.
“So thus you’re freaking out?” Blair looked at her skeptically. “It’s her wedding, she’s done this before and she’s always freaked out. She’ll forget it the một phút she starts walking down the aisle. Now why did bạn actually pull me over here?”
Serena looked around quickly before sighing, “He’s here. Why is he here?”
“Hmm…” Blair took a một phút to think. “No idea why, but this is the perfect opportunity for bạn to talk to him.”
Serena hissed, “And tell him what, Blair? ‘I’ve been avoiding bạn because in a few years we’re going to be siblings and that would be awkward.’ He’d think I’m crazy.”
“Maybe bạn should introduce him to them. Eric took it better then we thought he would,” Blair put on a small smile when Serena slightly pushed her, letting out a laugh. “Talk to him. Now I’m going to go back over there.”
“I wonder why,” Serena called out as Blair began walking away, laughing at the glare she received.
“Sorry about that… wedding crisis,” Blair smiled as she moved in front of Chuck, reaching for his bowtie.
“Does it involve Brooklyn?” When Blair looked up at him in surprise he nodded his head in the direction of Dan Humphrey and a girl Blair didn’t know whose arm was on Nate’s. Blair froze. “That was my reaction too.”
“But what about… everything,” she whispered.
“Well Nathaniel didn’t like ‘everything.’ đã đưa ý kiến he wanted a break from it all.”
“And that break was in Brooklyn?” Blair exclaimed, earning a laugh from Chuck.
“It’s where the Captain’s rehab is.” After a một phút he began digging in his pocket, taking out a bunch of note cards.
“Speech going that well,” Blair teased, trying to reach for them, but finding Chuck holding them out of her reach.
“You’ll hear it soon enough, Blair,” he smiled as she put on a pout. “Now I’m off to fulfill my Best Man duties.” He kissed her on the cheek before walking toward his father who’s just arrived.
It was a whole giờ before Lily even took her first step down the aisle, during which time Blair was introduced and forced to be polite to Nate’s date, who’s name was Vanessa and apparently was Dan’s best friend. Meanwhile, Serena was forced to make up wedding emergencies so as to avoid ever being alone with Dan.
After the ceremony everyone moved inside, Blair watching Chuck the whole time, she didn’t think she’d ever seen him so happy. When he got up for his speech everyone in the dining room stopped their chatter.
“One thing I’ve learned from my father’s courtship of Lily is the importance of perseverance. In the face of true tình yêu bạn don’t just give up, even if the object of your affection is begging bạn to. Because no matter what bạn do, bạn will find your way back to each other, and that’s something worth fighting for. To the happy couple.”
Serena had run out back outside to where the ceremony had been held, holding her head in her hands she tried to think through what was going to happen. Right then someone else sat down tiếp theo to her, “I know you’ve been avoiding me.”
Serena looked up, “No, I haven’t.”
“Serena, I’m an expert on people trying to avoid me. I just don’t get why. I mean, I thought bạn actually liked me, I guess,” Dan said, trying and failing to not seem awkward.
“I do like you, Dan. It’s just…”
“Our parents?” When he had seen the confirmation on Serena’s face he continued, “Yeah, I understand. I guess I just thought with her marrying Bart…”
Serena looked over at Dan sadly, before grabbing his hand, “Maybe we should just be friends.”
He looked down at their hands before answering, “I think I could be ok with that.” They both sat for a few phút in silence before Dan got up, “I’m going to go look for Vanessa, tell her I’m going back.”
Serena immediately stood up too, trying to find something to say, instead she just hugged him, “I’m sorry, Dan.”
She wasn’t looking as she entered the ballroom, running straight into Nate. But right before she could apologize the wedding photographer rushed over, pushing them together for a dance. Neither really looked into each other’s eyes as they began swaying.
“Where’s Vanessa?” Serena finally asked.
“She went trang chủ with Dan after I found out my dad has fled the country,” Nate đã đưa ý kiến in a monotone, but Serena caught the underlying sadness.
They both simultaneously pulled each other closer as they danced to the song. Neither paying any attention to anything around them, until they saw a tearful Blair run past. While Serena turned to watch Blair run off, Nate looked back to see Chuck, standing Nữ hoàng băng giá with a very shocked and scared look on his face. Both Serena and Nate turned to look at each other before Serena wordlessly began running off after Blair.
“Blair?” Serena called as she entered Blair’s room, sitting down tiếp theo to her figure on the bed.
“Go away, Serena.”
“What happened?” Serena said, ignoring her complaints.
“I’m stupid. That’s what happened.”
“Ummm….” Serena was very confused.
Blair huffed as she sat up, her makeup slightly smudged she started ranting, “We were dancing and he đã đưa ý kiến that he wanted me to come to Tuscany with him. Then for some reason I đã đưa ý kiến it! I đã đưa ý kiến the three words,” She flung herself back on the giường before mumbling, “And he didn’t say anything back. Just stood there…”
Serena sat there shocked for a một phút before saying softly, “Well, maybe it was a little too soon for him.”
“I know that, S! But he was asking me to go to Tuscany with him, how much thêm official can bạn get.”
“Well, bạn are going with him right?” Serena questioned slowly.
“I don’t know… I just ruined everything,” Blair was sitting up at this point, looking down at her hands.
“No, bạn have to go. This is Chuck Bass, bạn know how he is with that sort of thing… tình yêu and everything.”
Blair sat silently for a minute, “We could travel from there to see Daddy and Roman.”
“Great! Now let’s start packing!” Serena proclaimed as she jumped off the bed.
He sat alone in his room, a glass clenched in his hand, still staring off with that shocked look on his face from earlier. Even when he heard the door open he didn’t di chuyển a muscle. When the three people now in the room came and sat tiếp theo to him he still didn’t move.
“Chuck, you’re going to have to tell us what happened,” Nate đã đưa ý kiến softly as he sat tiếp theo to his friend.
He didn’t look up as he mumbled what happened into his glass. The older Chuck and Blair threw confused looks at Nate, asking what happened.
He awkwardly cleared his throat and told them, “Blair đã đưa ý kiến ‘I tình yêu you’.” All of them caught the slight twitch Chuck made when he heard the words again.
“And bạn didn’t say it back,” the older Blair said, thêm as a statement then a question. They all took Chuck lowering his head as confirmation. “Well, that’s consistent. Did bạn still invite her to Tuscany?”
Chuck raised his head, eyebrows raised in surprise as he wordlessly nodded.
“You really should start packing then,” Blair commented, getting a small laugh from the older Chuck who had to hold her back from running around the room.
“She’s not going to come now,” Chuck đã đưa ý kiến the first words since they’d arrived.
“I wouldn’t be so sure about that man,” Nate said, moved bởi his friend’s helplessness, using this as an unspoken peace treaty between the two.
“Nate’s right, if memory serves correctly you’re the one that has some problems hiển thị up,” Blair said, with a slight edge of past bitterness in her voice.
“You want to go with her?” the older Chuck asked, already knowing the answer before he got a nod. “Then go, because if bạn don’t you’re going to start a long and painful process.”
Ten phút late. There’s no need to worry, it’s only 10 minutes, Blair thought to herself as she sat opening and closing her phone, checking the time. When she heard the limo pull up she forced herself not to turn around and look. She didn’t turn around until he touched her shoulder.
She looked into his eyes then quickly looked away, right at the bouquet he was holding, smirking at her. She opened and closed her mouth twice, trying to think of something to say. Then he put his hand on her chin and kissed her. He pulled back, smiling, as he said, “You know, we can visit your dad in France after our trip if bạn want.”
Blair beamed as she grabbed the roses, “I’d tình yêu to.”
