Chuck and Blair walked out of the bathroom about an hour later. Chuck was smoothing out his carelessly thrown on shirt, a smug smirk on his face. Blair was trying to quickly fix herself up before they walked into the main room.
They were greeted with an almost empty room, the only people there were the other Chuck and Blair, deep in conversation. They sat down across from them and were met with knowing looks.
“You two are lucky that we gave Nate and Serena the charming idea of going out to lunch,” Blair began, trying not to laugh.
“Oh definitely, I mean with how long you two were in there it wouldn’t take a genius to figure it out,” Chuck joined in.
“Ugh, why do I have to keep hearing about this?” the younger Blair whined.
“Because you obviously can’t stay away from me,” the younger Chuck answered.
She took a minute before giving in, “Fine, but it doesn’t leave this room,” she glared at everybody. At Chuck’s confused, almost angry look she finished, “If anybody found out about this I’d be ruined.”
The older two quickly shared a look before the older Chuck stated, “It’ll be a lot worse for everyone if you don’t tell.”
“Like how?” Blair asked suspiciously.
“Like you sleeping with and getting back together with Nathaniel, then me telling Gossip Girl that you slept with both me and Nate. You humiliated by your minions, and dumped by Nate. Then when you come to me I turn you down because of how much you hurt me.”
“It was really bad, I almost ran away,” Blair chipped in at the end, holding Chuck’s hand for comfort.
There was silence for a moment before Blair meekly stated, “But it’s different now, that might not happen.”
“Do you really believe that?” Chuck asked from beside her, their gaze locking.
Right then they were interrupted by a knock on the door, then both Nate’s and Serena’s walked into the room. Nate awkwardly avoided Blair by placing himself at the bar, while Serena attempted to make eye contact with Blair.
Immediately though, Blair stood up, “I should be going, I still need to change. I’ll see you later.” She ran out the door. After she was gone Serena placed herself on the couch glaring at Chuck.
“What?” he asked.
She hadn’t known what to do, she had wanted to stay with Chuck, but Nate and Serena came and things got too awkward. So she went to visit Eric, he didn’t ask her why her hair was so messed up, or why her dress was all wrinkled, instead they just talked.
Blair was just standing up to leave when a knock came on the door followed by someone walking in. Blair froze as she now found herself face to face with Chuck, who broke into a grin the minute he saw her.
“Fancy seeing you here,” he drawled out, stepping closer to her.
“Hi Chuck,” Blair stated.
“Listen…” he tried to begin.
“We should talk,” Blair cut him off, giving him a small smile.
“I knew it!” Eric suddenly called from his place on the bed. “You two are together!”
Blair laughed a little as she began walking towards the door. “I’ll leave you two to talk about that. Bye Eric.”
After she had left Eric quickly turned to Chuck, “So what happened?”
Blair walked into her penthouse, almost collapsing against the wall, she was so tired. But she immediately straightened when she saw the suitcases in the hall. She saw her dad come around the corner, freezing when he saw her.
“Daddy. What’s going on?” She asked softly.
“Nothing for you to worry about, Blair. I’m just…”
“He’s leaving us,” Eleanor appeared, cutting him off, her eyes red from crying. “He’s moving to Paris.”
“With Roman?” Blair asked quietly, her eyes filling with tears.
“How did you know about that?” Harold asked before he began placing his bags in the elevator. “Just… I’m so sorry, Blair Bear.” And with that he walked into the elevator and out of Blair’s life.
Blair stood staring at the doors before looking back at her mother. “And where have you been? Look at you, your hair is a mess, and your dress is just… ugh!” Eleanor stated before rushing back to her bedroom.
Blair walked to the kitchen in a trance, pulling out as much food as she could she ate it all before running off to her bathroom.
Serena walked out of the Palace not looking where she was going, her mind going a million miles an hour. She immediately ran into someone.
“Oh my god, I’m so sorry.”
“No, it’s fine,” the guy answered as he picked up the fliers that had spread across the ground.
When they both had stood up Serena finally noticed who it was. “Hey, you’re Dan Humphrey right.”
“Um… Yes, yes that would be me. We keep running into each other, literally.”
Serena laughed and was about to answer when her mother walked up. “Serena, I need to talk to you. I got you a dress that I was hoping you’d wear to an important dinner tonight. I’ve got some news to announce,” she stated, not noticing the boy standing next to Serena.
“No!” Lily’s eyebrows raised at Serena’s insistence. “I mean, I already have plans with… Dan here.”
“Me?” He stated, shocked. “I mean yeah of course. We’re going to a concert.” He held up the flier as evidence.
“Well then I guess I’ll just tell you now,” Lily sighed as she led Serena a bit away from Dan. “Look, I am seeing somebody and I just thought that since you’ll be seeing him around a lot I’d tell you who he is. It’s Bart Bass.”
Serena stood still for a moment before. “What! Ugh, you have got to be kidding me. Bart Bass? I was hoping this wouldn’t actually happen,” she whispered the last part. Lily was about to argue when Serena’s phone rang, she picked it up and said a few words before telling her mom she had to go and running off.
“Blair?” Serena called into Blair’s room. She heard a soft whimper from the bathroom and she walked in to see Blair sitting against the wall. Immediately she walked over, sitting down and giving her a hug.
Blair sniffled, “He left me.”
Serena didn’t need to ask who she was talking about. Dorota had mentioned Harold’s departure and she could hear the sobs from Eleanor’s room on the way up. “I’m so sorry, Blair. I’m so sorry for everything. Are you ok?” Serena said softly.
She stayed silent for a minute before answering, “Well, putting aside the fact that my father now is moving to France with a 21 year old male model, yeah I am. Nate and I are done…” she trailed off, her mind obviously elsewhere.
After a few minutes of Blair thinking, Serena cut in, “So guess who most probably will be Chuck’s new stepsister.” When Blair turned her head and raised an eyebrow Serena continued. “Yep, my mom is dating Bart Bass. Can you believe it? I mean Chuck. Chuck,” Serena said, discreetly trying to get Blair to admit to something.
“Well yes, Chuck is Bart’s son so that would make sense,” Blair said, both confused and entertained by Serena’s actions.
“Look Blair, I’m not sure how else to say this but I saw you and Chuck,” Serena said.
Blair looked down, shaking her head. “None of this was supposed to happen.” When Serena opened her mouth to say something Blair cut her off. “But I’m glad it did,” she practically whispered.
Serena’s mouth dropped open, “What?”
“You heard me. And anyway he’s really not so bad,” Blair tried to defend herself.
“Yeah, older him isn’t so bad. But this is the younger one we’re dealing with. The ‘never actually liked a girl, sleeps with everyone’ one.”
Blair stood up, “You just don’t know him, S.” And with that she walked out of the room.
“Chuck,” Blair called into his suite, the door had been left open so she walked in. “Chuck, we really need to talk about what happened.”
Blair froze as she walked into the room. Her gaze immediately locked with Chuck’s, but she then looked to see Nate sitting on the couch next to him. “What happened?” Nate asked, looking between the two.
The older four that were sitting on the opposite couch froze, almost preparing themselves for what might happen.
Chuck stood up, moving slightly toward Blair trying to think. “Oh nothing, Nathaniel, just…”
“I slept with Chuck,” Blair cut him off as she looked directly at Nate, avoiding Chuck’s surprised expression.
“… You what?” Nate asked again, standing up.
“Chuck and I slept together… twice actually.”
Nate looked at Chuck for confirmation and when he didn’t say anything to deny it Nate pushed him against the wall. “You son of a bitch!”
“Nate!” Blair screamed pulling him off Chuck.
“You two were over anyway,” Chuck defended.
“Oh and that makes screwing Blair for sport ok,” Nate continued yelling.
“It wasn’t for sport. She needed someone and I was there. I still am.”
“Ugh, just stay away from me Chuck,” Nate said angrily as he slammed the door behind him.
The room was filled with silence after he was gone before the older Chuck spoke. “Can’t say I didn’t see that one coming.”
