Temptation of the Best Kind- Chapter Eight
What was the best way to destroy Nate? The thought had raced through her mind continuously for the last twelve hours and Blair still didn’t have an answer to it. But the time had come for Nate to be absolutely humiliated in front of all his friends and to essentially be destroyed. She didn’t care what the consequences where to her actions anymore, he could try to ruin her if he wanted.
She had lost everything because of him and his stupid ultimatum. Nothing was more important than Chuck and Nate had made sure that she lost him forever. That had to be remedied immediately. All the fight had gone out of her and she was left only with the most powerful feeling of revenge. Nate had cost her the man that she loved and her only alternative now was to get even with him. It didn’t matter what he did to her anymore, the only thing that she cared about was making sure that he got what was coming to him.
A knock sounded on her bedroom door and she went to go see who was there. It had to be Serena; no one else would dare come here. Especially with the mood that she was in right now. She wrenched the door opened with an annoyed expression on her face and was shocked to see that Chuck was on the other side.
“Chuck? What are you doing here?”
He made his way past the door and went into her room. He always seemed to invade her personal space but she didn’t mind. Especially now since any second that she could spend with him was great and she would jump at the chance.
“I just wanted to make sure you were okay, Blair.”
“Okay with what?”
He frowned. “Do you have a concussion?”
She shook her head.
He walked over to her and she scooted further back until she hit the wall. “You seem to be forgetting the other day when you were in the hospital and had to get stitches.”
“Oh, that. I’ve had a lot worse believe me.”
“So then, you’re okay with everything? You haven’t had any bad reactions?”
Chuck’s concern for her made everything even more difficult than it already was. She just wanted to be with him and forget about everything else except how he made her feel. She pushed her face closer to his but did not answer his question.
“Blair, are you okay?” Chuck asked again.
She placed a hand on his shoulder. “I’m fine.” She whispered before bringing her lips down to his. A shocked breath of air escaped his lips before he broke the kiss.
“Don’t do this to me again.” He whispered against her forehead as he placed a hand on her waist.
“I can’t do this again. Don’t make me want you and then leave me again.” There was a desperate plea in his voice.
Blair looked him right in the eyes before saying, “I won’t.” Her lips crashed against his and this time Chuck didn’t resist her. Her lips parted underneath his and he slid his tongue inside of her mouth. It was like coming home after a long stay away. Nothing could ever taste better than her mouth. His tongue continued to glide inside of her mouth and memorize every crevice and part of it, in case this was never to happen again.
Blair moaned into his mouth and that only sent him even more over the edge. He wanted her and nothing was going to make him stop this time. Especially if it was the last time that he would ever have her. His hands traveled down her back until they landed on her ass. He hoisted her up and she wrapped her legs around him. His mind started to go into overdrive and he knew what was going to happen if he continued this. But for once, he wasn’t going to stop Blair. Nate’s face popped into his mind but he quickly pushed it away. Fuck Nate.
It had been much too long since the night he had taken her virginity and he needed to be inside her now. He moved his mouth away from hers and let his lips travel down her neck. All the while he was tearing her clothes off and scattering them on the floor. When she was down to her bra and panties, she stopped him.
His name snapped him out of the trance that he had been in and he knew that she was going to stop him now. She had just been toying with him, as usual.
He focused his eyes on her. “What?” He snapped.
Blair smiled. “You have way too many clothes on.”
He chuckled and began removing his clothes. In the back of his mind, the voice was going off and telling him that this was wrong. But for this once, he just wanted to give in to Blair and be happy with her. Because in an instant it could be gone again.
He had to ask one time at least though. “Are you sure?” His eyes never left her face.
“Yes. If I wasn’t sure, I would have stopped you a long time ago.”
That was all he needed to hear. His mouth sought hers and they both tumbled backwards on her bed. Chuck moved his body over hers and caressed every inch of her body that he could touch. She moaned with pleasure and he knew that he wasn’t going to be able to hold out much longer. He had never been able to resist Blair.
He removed his boxers and positioned himself near her entrance. “I want you so bad, Blair.” He whispered on a breathy moan, as he moved against her and felt her desire for him.
She fisted her hands in his hair and wanted to say the words back to him but knew that was impossible in her current situation. “Then take me.”
He growled with passion and slid his length slowly into her willing body. He tried to go gentle because of the fact that she was so tight but he found that he couldn’t. Once he felt the wet heat that gripped him like a glove, he was lost. Blair held onto him as he started to move gently at first and then like he was possessed.
“Oh, Chuck. I’ve been waiting for this for a long time.”
Her words set him off even more and then he felt Blair grip his buttocks and he completely lost it. He started to pound into her, and tried to get her to orgasm before he did. One of his hands traveled down to her clit and that did it, she came screaming his name.
“Chuck!” She buried her face in his neck.
Hearing her say his name with such sated desire set him off. He thrusted into her one more time. “I love you, Blair.” He whispered as he came even though he knew that she couldn’t hear him. He wasn’t sure that he had even spoken the words as much as he mouthed them. But it didn’t matter because they were true.
They collapsed into each other’s arms. Blair snuggled onto his chest and he wrapped an arm around her. No words were spoken but they weren’t necessary. Soon he heard Blair’s light snores and he knew that she was asleep. The happiness that he was feeling was so unexpected and he just wanted to hold on to it for as long as he could.
But minutes later the happiness started to fade as Chuck realized something. Blair hadn’t broken up with Nate and like she said, he was all just a game to her. Then it came to him what this had been. Blair had just given him a pity fuck. The anger came back to him and it was stronger than ever. He had to get out of here before she woke up because if he could help it, he never wanted to see Blair Waldorf again.
Blair woke up from the comfort of her sheets hours later and she reached for Chuck. But all her hand caught was a wisp of air. She bolted up in the bed and brushed her hair out of her eyes, while she wildly looked around for Chuck. After seeing that he wasn’t in bed, she went to go check the bathroom only to return without finding him there either. Her shoulders slumped as she returned to the bed. Chuck had left. Nothing had changed, she realized. Everything was the same as before and she couldn’t bear the thought of having to face Chuck and pretend like this hadn’t happened. But it hadn’t meant anything to him obviously or he would have never left her all alone. They just couldn’t get it right no matter how many times they tried too. Maybe they just weren’t destined for each other like she had originally thought.
The plan was about to be set in motion and hopefully it would help set her life back on it’s course. Blair walked swiftly over to the usual lunch table and noticed everyone was there, including, Nate, Serena, all of Nate’s friends, the girls, and most importantly Chuck. Blair tried to catch his Chuck’s eye but his attention was focused on anything but her. She would guarantee that in a matter of minutes, he would be looking at her quite differently.
She took her seat by Nate and he moved an arm around her but she immediately pushed him away. “Don’t touch me.” She hissed.
Everyone at the table heard her and everyone exchanged glances. Nate had a very irritated face on. “Blair! What the hell do you think you’re doing?” He whispered in fury.
She glanced at Chuck who was still not looking at her before turning back to Nate. “Just wait. You’re about to get it, Nate.”
Blair stood up and cleared her throat. “I have a little something to say and I really need everyone to listen to me because I’m only going to say this once. It’s very important to me though.” All eyes turned to her, even Chuck’s. She continued, “I know that I have been giving everybody mixed signals lately about who I am. But it’s time to finally set the record straight about everything.”
Nate tugged on her hand. “Sit down, Blair. Now!”
“No.” She pulled her hand free from his grasp. “First off, I would like to address the girls.” She motioned to Penelope, Isobel, and Hazel. “I wasn’t lying the first time when I said that I hated all of you. You three are just mean, manipulative bitches and I can’t stand you. I’m sorry for not being clear before but that was because of a certain someone at this table who was making me do something that I didn’t want t do.”
The girls stared back at her in horror but other than that they said nothing. They were too shocked by her outburst.
Blair turned to Nate and put a hand on his shoulder. “Now on to my dear boyfriend who I basically hate.” Chuck looked at her in shock but all of her attention was focused on Nate. She had been waiting for this for so long. “You disgust me and I wasn’t lying before when I said that I never felt anything for you. And I know you never felt the way you should have felt for me, you were too busy fucking Serena. Which I heard wasn’t a onetime thing. That doesn’t matter though anymore because all I want to do is humiliate you I in the worst way. What you made me do is absolutely inexcusable when you know that it would make me unhappy. I can never forgive you for that and if I never see you again it will be much too soon. And the thing that you told me before about how you would destroy me? Bring it.”
“What the hell are you talking about, Blair? Why would Nate destroy you?” Chuck asked when he could no longer hold his tongue.
“I don’t think you know your best friend as well as you think you do, Chuck. It’s best to ask him about it.”
Everyone had the same dumbstruck expression on their faces except Nate who looked about ready to kill someone.
Blair continued, “I’m not finished yet. I just want to say that the Blair Waldorf that you know is not the real me and I’m about to prove it. There are two people in my life and at this very table that I care about. One is my best friend.” She swept her hand towards Serena. “Serena, you know I love you. You are one of the people that have been there for me in my life whenever I needed you, except a couple times. Even though you still don’t know a lot about me I know that you understand where I’m coming from. You’re everything that I could ask for in a best friend except of course the whole sleeping with this piece of shit.” She pointed at Nate and everyone had a chuckle at his expense.
Blair took a deep breath before continuing and she saw Serena smile encouragingly at her. “Now onto the other person that I care about. This person has turned into everything for me. I never thought that I would care about him like this but he’s the person that gets me the best. The man that I love, Chuck Bass.” All around the table there were shocked gasps and Chuck looked like he was about to keel over with shock and surprise. She turned to face him. “I never thought that I would wind up loving you Chuck but I have. I wasn’t lying to everyone when I told you that you were it for me. I still feel that way and it’s never going to change for me.”
He looked like he was about to open his mouth and argue but she waved her hand. “Let me finish. You were the one person that I could always rely on no matter what. It wasn’t my parents, my best friend, or even my boyfriend. You were the only person that has always been there for me no matter what. But that’s not the reason that I love you. We share this unbreakable bond that no matter what happens between us is always going to be there. And even though you act like nothing bothers you and you seem to have this hard shell to protect yourself from everyone, I know that I have gotten through to your defenses and I’m thankful for that. I do love you Chuck, and that is never going to be a lie.”
Blair decided to say one more thing to the whole table in general. “And to all of you who think it’s funny that I’m in love with Chuck Bass, I have only one thing to say to you. Fuck You. I don’t care what anyone thinks of me except Serena and Chuck. Those are the only two people that I need to have in my life. I’m done here.”
Blair left and as soon as she did, everyone began murmuring about her. It was going to be the talk of the entire school.
As soon as she stepped into the hallway, a hand grabbed hers and forced her into an abandoned classroom. Of course it was Chuck, of that she was sure. As soon as the door was shut he rounded on her.
“What the fuck was that?” The anger vibrated off his body in waves.
Blair moved closer to him. “It was the truth, Chuck. The whole truth. And why did you leave me last night after we made love?”
“Because I realized what it was to you. It was only a pity fuck and don’t pretend like it was anything more.”
She gently touched his face. “How can you think that after what I just said in front of everyone?” Her voice was surprisingly soft.
Chuck slapped her hand away from his and moved over to one of the desks and leaned against it. “How can I think that? Simple, nothing ever changes with you, Blair. This is all just a game to you still. You have to stop fucking with me, it’s gone far enough. The little stunt outside went a little overboard. Did you and Nate do that on purpose to embarrass me?”
His words started to annoy her, he should know better than that. “How many times do I have to tell you that it wasn’t a stunt? What I just said outside was the truth, all of it.”
“I don’t believe you. But I can tell you that I am so fucking sick of all this shit you’re putting me though. You know and that’s why you’re doing it. Only to get to me.”
“What do I know?”
“You made me fall in love with you and know you’re using it against me! I’ve had enough. I’m done.”
“You love me?” She managed to squeak out. The elation started to seep through her body.
He brought his face right against hers. “Let me clarify something. I love the Blair that I went skydiving with that day and the one that went camping. But that’s not who you really are, you’re just the same Blair Waldorf as always. I miss that free spirited woman who was not afraid of anything and who had such an amazing spirit. That’s who I love but that’s not you.” He sneered, “You’re just the same bitch that you’ve always been. Controlling, an ice princess, and above all a schemer. I am tired of these games with you. One day you want me and the next you tell me that I was just a bet. I can’t do it anymore, Blair. It has gone beyond the call of a game to me and I hate that you make me feel this way. You’ve changed me and all I want is that girl that was so amazing. But she doesn’t exist, does she?”
A tear ran down her face at his harsh words. “She’s standing right in front of you.”
He shook his head sadly. “That’s what I thought but you’re not the Blair that I want. And I don’t know what kind of game you’re playing with Nate but all of this has to stop. And I’m prepared to put a definite stop to it. You don’t have to decide anymore who you’re going to play. I’m out. I don’t want anything to do with you, Waldorf.” As soon as he proclaimed that he took one last look at her before walking out the door.
Blair let him go and as soon as the door closed again, she collapsed on top of the desk. She had thought that by doing all of this that it would bring them closer together and it would make everything better. The exact opposite had happened; it just had torn them further apart than ever. Chuck had walked out of her life. Again.
After she had composed herself enough to walk, she opened the door and prepared to walk away from everything that was her life. When the door was opened, it revealed a grim faced Serena who had overheard her whole conversation with Chuck. Blair threw herself into her best friend’s arms and planned on never letting go.
Chuck took another sip of the amber liquid that was a bottle of scotch before realizing that it was completely empty. It was the second bottle that he had gone through and he had a quite pleasant buzz going on. That was interrupted when he heard a knock on the door. He stood up on shaky legs and opened his door to find an obviously upset Serena.
“I’m not in the mood, Serena.” He tried to growl it but his words came out slurred.
She pushed past him. “You’re going to want to hear this, trust me.”
He looked at his watch but he couldn’t even see the numbers because of his bleary eyes. “You have five minutes before I’m kicking you out.”
“Gee thanks, Chuck.” The sarcasm rolled off her in waves. “I just have to tell you something, but it’s something that I shouldn’t probably be telling you. But I can’t stand to see Blair so upset.”
“Blair? What the fuck has she got to do with any of this?”
Serena took a seat on the couch. “Take it easy and let me explain before you fly off the handle.” She took a deep breath before saying, “What Blair said at lunch today wasn’t a lie, Chuck. She really does love you.”
“Bullshit.” Came his response.
Serena forced him to sit down next to her. “It most certainly isn’t bullshit. She does love you and there’s a reason why she called it off with you.”
“I know, I know, the two of you made some stupid bet and I was the bait for it.” He drawled in a bored voice, although he was anything but bored.
“Wrong again. Blair hates Nate and loves you. The reason that she broke up with you is because of the fact that Nate is blackmailing her. She’s been trying to protect you, Chuck. That’s the only reason for any of this. Nate.
