Chapter 1 – Nate
It was now or never for Serena Van der Woodsen. She sat in her room with both their names on a piece of paper scribbling down everything she liked about them while her mum, Rufus, and Eric slept. She had to make the final choice, the choice between Nate and Dan.
Earlier on in the evening
It was Blair and Chucks engagement party and of course it had to have a theme as did every Upper East Side party. The theme this time was a simple Black and White occasion. Blair of course being the bride to be was in a beautiful white floor length gown and her hair draping down her back with loose curls, Chuck wearing one of his classic black suits with a white bow tie and a matching black scarf. She was just about to go over and give Blair her engagement present when... "Serena" she had heard the determined voice of Nate Archibald from behind her. He looked anxious as though he had something big he needed to tell her. "Listen Serena, I know we haven't been together in a while now and I know I told you I wouldn't wait around for you anymore, but the truth is I never stopped waiting around for you, I have faith in us and I always will."
Serena was completely taken aback, she had no idea where Nate's speech of love had come from but was she feeling the same? Did she want to tell Nate that she too feels the same and that they should give it another try?
"Nate, I uhh, I don't know what to say this is all so sudden. Why now? Why here?" she said in a distressed voice
"I know I know" he said taking hold of her hands making Serena not know where to look. "And I don't know, it's just when we were talking the other day about us and how we were, and all these feelings I had just came rushing back and I don't want to push them aside again." She felt her stomach turn but she didn't know whether or not it was a good sign or a bad sign.
Before she had time to say anything back, there he was standing there in a black suit with a skinny black tie and white shirt staring at her. Dan Humphrey, her first love, probably her only real love before Nate, and he was giving her that blazing look he used to give her that would instantly make her cheeks turn a dark shade of pink. She looked down to the floor not knowing what to do with herself. Then she realised Nate was still looking hopefully at her, he was anticipating her reply so much that he didn't even notice that she had been looking over at Dan.
Suddenly everything got too overwhelming for her. "Uh Nate I need to go" she said taking his hand, "We'll talk about this tomorrow okay?"
Suddenly Nate grabbed her by her waist and pulled her close to him, their eyes locked on each other that's when he kissed her lightly on her lips and said "I've been waiting to do that for so long. I'll come by tomorrow." He let go of her before she even had time to kiss him back, gave her a radiant smile and walked away.
She felt weak, light headed, she didn't know what had just happened but she did know that she enjoyed it. She smiled slightly, but it soon faded when she noticed that Dan was standing there and had clearly seen what had happened. She was confused, Dan almost looked disappointed? But he couldn't be, her and Dan hadn't been together for 3 years now, surely he's over it, surely she's over it? Was she over it? She looked at Dan's face again, she wanted to go over and explain but why should she? Her and Dan were nothing but friends now, it's none of his business who she may or may not have feelings for? But she so badly wanted to go over and explain herself.
Serena shook her head and began to walk out of Blair and Chuck's apartment, she figured she'd ring Blair up tomorrow and explain why she left so early on and didn't even get a chance to talk to her, Blair was her best friend of course she would understand. She was outside the apartment building and ready to hall a taxi when she heard it.
