A/N: So yeah I’m a horrible updater I know. But I got his finished before school starts. Which actually is tomorrow and I’m using Schreiben this as a way to get my mind off it. I was going to end it farther along in the story but I thought this was such a perfect ending place.
So yeah, thank Du so much for Lesen and reviewing!!!!!!!
“Are Du sure you’re ok. Du haven’t asked me to walk to school with Du in years.” Eric sagte as he walked Weiter to Serena.
“Well it was a hard weekend, but I’m ok. And anyway is it too hard to think that a girl just wants to spend some time with her only brother?” Serena joked.
“Yes, it is,” Eric laughed. Then he continued seriously, “Normally you’re too busy.”
“I’m never too busy for Du Eric,” she stated sincerely. “And if Du ever need to talk to me about anything, I’ll be here.”
“I know,” he whispered then paused, taking awhile to think before he put on a fake smile and said, “We should hurry oder you’re going to be late.” He hurried off down the sidewalk with a worried Serena trailing behind.
Chuck walked into the courtyard and scanned the tables, his eyes coming to rest on one in particular. He felt himself getting angry as he began walking towards the tabelle where Blair and Nate were sitting, hands intertwined despite the obviously fake smile on Blair’s face and the empty look on Nate’s.
“What is this?” He sagte harshly as he arrived Weiter to the table.
“What do Du mean? Nate and I were just talking and enjoying the Tag until Du showed up.” Blair sagte cheerfully, trying not to let her carefully constructed mask fall.
“Are Du serious, Blair?” Chuck practically yelled at her. “You’re really going to pretend this weekend didn’t happen. Get it through your head…this isn’t supposed to happen.”
“I’m not pretending anything,” Blair snapped.
“Blair-“ Nate broke in.
“No, Nate. I am not giving up on my life just because of some freak occurrence. I Liebe you,” she stated as if that was that.
At this Chuck quickly got up and without a word walked off. Blair sat staring down at her hands, eyes tearing up.
“Look Blair. Maybe Chuck’s right, maybe this isn’t supposed to happen…” He looked up to see Blair staring at him with an unreadable expression on her face.
“I’ve got to get to class,” she sagte quickly as she ran off.
The rest of the Tag continued awkwardly. Both Chuck and Nate, and Serena and Blair had attempted friendly conversation but found little to talk about as all four of them were still processing what they’d just been through. Chuck Von the end of the Tag was so sickened and angry at Blair for pretending her and Nate were perfect that as soon as school was over he headed off to the nearest bar.
“So, I was thinking we could go out to abendessen in a few hours, talk about everything,” Blair sagte hopefully to Nate. He didn’t seem to notice though, and as she turned to see what he was staring at she froze. His gaze was fixed directly on Serena, who was talking to some of the guys from the swim team.
“Nate!” She sagte to grab his attention. When he looked at her expectantly she stuttered,” Um… I… I think I’m just going to go Home and think.” He just nodded, his gaze immediately going back to Serena as Blair stood up and left.
That night while Serena was sitting alone at Home she heard a knock on the door. “Nate? What are Du doing here?” Serena said, her mouth dropping open in surprise.
“Can I come in?” He sagte quietly. Walking into the room as soon as Serena gestured him in, sitting down on the couch.
“Why are Du here, Nate? Where’s Blair?” Serena asked again as she took a Minute before deciding to sit Weiter to him on the couch.
“She’s at home, thinking. Du know, about everything.”
Serena nodded. “Yeah, we all have a lot of thinking to do.”
Nate nodded too, still keeping his gaze on the floor he continued. “Have Du thought about it?”
“Of course. I mean that was a lot of information, how could I not.”
“I don’t mean about all of it. I mean...” Nate took a deep breath before continuing. “I mean about us.” He looked up at this and looked straight into Serena’s surprised, and pained face.
“Nate. Look Blair is-“ Serena stuttered.
“Blair is trying not to think about everything. But I’ve thought about it. And I can’t stop thinking about us.”
“Nate. We can’t-“ Serena attempted to get out before Nate cut her off with a kiss. Without thinking Serena returned the KISS allowing him to push her back onto the couch.
Nate cleared his throat. “Where’s Serena?”
“I don’t know. I haven’t seen her all day. She wasn’t in any of her classes,” Blair said, not really caring.
“Damn it. Where could she be?” He said, nervous and annoyed.
“Probably had a little too much to drink last night. Don’t worry about it,” she threatened Nate before she stood up and headed out of the school. She paused when she felt someone staring at her. She turned to see Chuck leaning against the wall, a pained, slightly hopeful look in his eyes as he watched her.
“What are Du doing?” Blair sagte awkwardly, suddenly feeling embarrassed.
“Still waiting,” he drawled out as he walked closer to her. Her feet suddenly felt like they were glued to the ground. “Unless you’re finally going to embrace your destiny,” he smirked as he got within touching range of her.
It took her a Minute to respond before she softly got out, “Never.” And she walked away leaving Chuck staring at her retreating form.
For the rest of the week nothing really happened. Serena had not shown up to school oder called anyone. Everyday Nate would mainly avoid Blair except for the customary, Where’s Serena, conversation. At first Blair wasn’t even worried, but after awhile with no call oder text she started to get concerned. Chuck had stayed in the shadows, every once and awhile trying to convince Blair to think about everything, always getting the same answer and going off to spend the night drinking to cover up his pain.
It was Saturday night when Blair decided to go find Serena. She hadn’t had anything to do last night oder all of today because of Nate’s sudden detachment. She quickly called Serena’s house again getting the message machine, which was now programmed saying something about Lily going off with another boyfriend. Of course, Blair thought as she grabbed her mantel and headed into the elevator.
When she arrived at Serena’s house she found the door unlocked and walked in. She headed straight for Serena’s room and looked around, finding the closet and dresser empty. Panicking Blair quickly tried to think, Eric! He’ll know where she is.
“Eric!” She called out as she moved towards his room. Looking around she didn’t see anything out of place, that is until she caught sight of the bathroom door that was slightly open, its light pouring out into the room. “Eric?” she whispered as she pushed the door open. “Oh my god,” she sagte in shock as she quickly bent down to the floor and pulled out her phone, calling 911, tears streaming down her face.
