A/N: Happy New Year and I hope you enjoy this chapter. But I want to make a few things clear first:
They are all about 22 right now, Blair is working with her mom and Chuck at Bass Industries (Obviously). Serena and Nate aren't married, they are just engaged.
P.S. Please read the A/N at the bottom when you're finished.
"What? How can you not have told him, it's been almost a month," Serena shouted, Blair shushing her furiously and glancing at the stairs to make sure her husband was still asleep. Her husband... Blair sighed blissfully. "Snap out of it," Serena scolded, flicking Blair's arm.
Blair laughed but silenced when Serena turned serious and looked deeply into Blair's eyes ,"Are you absolutely sure you're pregnant?" Blair scoffed, "Well unless 26 pregnancy tests lie, then I'm pretty sure." Serena gaped and shock her head incredulously. "How the hell did you manage to take 26 pregnancy tests on your honeymoon, right under Chuck's nose?"
"Well, I kind of tired him out," Blair admitted sheepishly, a blush rising to her cheeks. "Blair," Serena whined, covering her ears. Blair started to laugh and Serena joined in soon after.
"What's so funny?" Blair turned around and saw Chuck standing behind them, causing both women to stop laughing. "Nothing. I was just telling Serena about the more X rated events of our honeymoon," Blair said innocently, trying to stifle a giggle.
"Is that so?" Chuck smirked and leaned in to kiss Blair. When they didn't break the kiss, Serena faked gagging and finally caught Blair's attention. Blair turned around and laughed at Serena's expression, who looked completely horrified.
Chuck wrapped his arms around Blair's waist and started nuzzling her neck softly. Serena gave an irritated sigh and grabbed her purse. "See you later B, now that your husband is awake there's no way I'm getting any of your attention." Serena shot Chuck a disapproving look before walking to the door. "Remember what we talked about," she shouted to Blair before leaving.
"Good morning," Chuck purred into her neck, making Blair shiver. She turned around and gave him a hasty kiss before getting up and starting to gather up her files for work. "Blair," Chuck groaned when he saw her heading for the door. "It's my one day off, can't you stay?" he pleaded, knowing very well he was fighting an already lost battle.
"You know I can't. My mom needs me at work."
"I need you too," Chuck protested, reminding Blair of a 5-year-old who wasn't allowed to get his toy. "Sorry baby," Blair said, before giving him another short kiss for goodbye and leaving.
"Hello?" Chuck shouted when he heard the elevator ding, announcing someone's arrival. "Blair?" He shouted down the stairs again when no one answered. When there was still no reply from downstairs he walked cautiously into the living-room getting a clear view at the elevator and the person standing in front of it.
"See you tomorrow mom," Blair shouted over her shoulder before finally escaping outside. The sun was shining despite the fact that it was nearing autumn time. Deciding to save a few bucks (Not that she needed to) she walked the short distance back home.
Chuck had been texting her relentlessly all day, so she could only imagine that he was probably waiting for her at home.
"When I went to Hudson, it wasn't only because of Blair's threat, it was because of Damien," Jenny started to explain.
When Chuck had seen Jenny standing at the door, he had asked her to leave immediately. He had been practically pushing her out the door when she had started to beg for his help. After seeing the desperate look on her face, he's decided to hear what she had to say.
That was how he found himself sitting in his living-room, across from Jenny Humphrey, who was almost crying as she told her story.
"After the incident with Lily's medication, more and more costumers were starting to get pissed at him and eventually stopped doing business with him. So, he came after me. After a few ignored calls, he started showing up at the loft. The night after Blair banished me, he called once again, threatening to kill me. He was obviously wasted but it still scared the crap out of me."
Jenny took a deep breath, grabbing a tissue to wipe her eyes. Doing that, Chuck noticed how the amount of make-up she was using was far less then when he'd seen her 3 years ago.
"That's when I ran," Jenny concluded. Chuck nodded calmly, finding it strange that Jenny would come to him for advise. Still, it's not like Dan would have been able too help with any kind of protection or blackmail. Chuck smirked to himself, but then realized Jenny was waiting for him to say something.
"Wait, if that happened three years ago, why are you in New York, asking for my help?" Chuck wondered, seeing a flash of panic in Jenny's eyes. She started fiddling with her hair and that's when he noticed the faded bruise on the left side of her face.
"He came after you," Chuck said, it was more of a statement then a question. Jenny nodded solemnly and rolled up her sleeves, revealing more bruises. "It was pretty bad," she admitted.
"Where is he now?" Chuck questioned and Jenny shock her head. "No idea, last I saw of him was in Hudson. I didn't know who else to turn to but you. I figured since you had all of those connections you could keep him away." Jenny's voice broke and she started sobbing quietly.
He almost felt sorry for her, but he still wasn't over the fact that when ever someone brought up Jenny's name, Blair would look to him and shudder. "Look, I'm sure Lily could help you just as much as I can," Chuck said, standing up from his chair. Jenny nodded and got up to. "Thanks for listening Chuck. By the way, I really am sorry for that night."
Chuck gave her a small smile and a quick handshake but Jenny pulled him in for a hug at the last second. "Thanks for being a good brother," she murmured. That's when they heard the sound of a bag being dropped to the floor and looked to the elevator to see a very shocked Blair.
"Get out," she hissed at Jenny who immediately scurried away. Blair's intense stare followed her until the door to the elevator closed. That's when she turned to Chuck.
"You filthy bastard," she shouted, picking up her purse and stomping over to him. "How could you?" Blair started smacking him repeatedly with her purse, all the while shouting at him.
Chuck grabbed both of her arms, trying to restrain her as she struggled to get loose He knew there was no way to reason with her when she was like this, so her waited.
"So this is what you do when I'm at work. You call that Brooklyn trash and bring home to our house. What, did you use our bed too?" Blair continued to shout at him, getting angrier by the second. "And now I feel so humiliated because I've been thinking of ways to tell you that I'm pregnant, but now I found out I don't have to because you don't care."
Chuck snapped his head up at the word pregnant and pulled her arms so she was up against his chest. "You're pregnant?" he whispered, his words going unheard from Blair's yelling.
When Blair started to struggle against his grip, he let her go and watched as she fell into one of the chairs. She started sobbing and when Chuck laid a hand on her shoulder, she pushed it harshly off and stormed out of the apartment.
Blair returned a few hours later after going to Serena for comfort. As it turned out, Serena had been able too fix the whole situation. Right before Blair had shown up at her door, crying her eyes out, her mom had called her and told her all about what happened to Jenny. Blair had felt incredibly guilty for lashing out at Chuck and knew that he was probably fuming. So, she had stayed with Serena, watching Audrey Hepburn movies until 11pm.
When the doors to the elevator opened up, the first thing she saw were rose pedals spread in a line that seemed to lead up the stairwell. There were also a few candles standing on the tables and the lights had been dimmed.
Blair walked slowly after the flower-trail, getting more curious when she saw that it lead to one of the empty rooms the interior designer had yet to make into a guest room.
She opened the door cautiously and gasped at what was inside. The walls had been painted and the words Baby Bass were printed above the small crib. The floors had been carpeted and there was a small, white lamp standing on a table next to a comfortable rocking-chair. "Do you like it?" Chuck murmured from behind and wrapped his arms around her waist. "It's adorable," Blair gushed and turned around in his arms. "You're not mad at me for throwing a fit earlier?"
Chuck smiled and gave her a long kiss. "I could never be mad at you." Blair smiled back and grabbed his hands softly, placing them on her still-flat stomach. "I love you," Chuck said and stroked his thumb gently across her stomach. "Both of you."

Please tell me what you think, I don't want to bore you with a story that's taking to long to get somewhere if that's not your thing! P.S. You can leave a review, even if you don't have an account!
