Part Eighteen (Epilogue)

New Years Eve … The Palace

Serena turned her head to the side as she felt soft fingers brush against her own.

"Hey," she said smiling as Blair's lovely features came into view. "I was wondering where you ran off to," she continued taking Blair's hand more firmly in her own. "Where did you run off to?" she asked a second later, noticing that Blair's cheeks were rosy and her that her hand was a little cold.

"Come on," Blair said tugging at Serena's hand, a sensual smile playing across her lips. "I'll show you."

Serena bit down on her bottom lip, chewing at the soft flesh lightly before she turned her head to side to observe the crowd around them. It was 11:30 pm and everyone was more than a few drinks in. The noise in the room was almost deafening, and no one was paying attention to her or Blair.

It would be easy to slip out and they could probably get back before their absence was even noticed.

"Lead on," Serena murmured smiling broadly, knowing that whatever Blair had planned to ring in the New Year it was going to be sexy.


Serena laughed as Blair stopped walking, a playful, amused sound that rang in the air around them as Serena wrapped her arms around Blair's waist and kissed her cheek softly.

"Seriously?" Serena asked her eyes staring in front of her.

Blair huffed. "Well, if you'd rather go back to the party," she began.

Serena kissed her cheek again. "I don't want to go back to the party," she said soothingly, running her hands up and down Blair's arms. "This is great," she continued meaning it completely as she kissed Blair's neck.

Blair smiled despite herself, Serena's soft, arousing touches relaxing her.

"How long do we have?" Serena asked moving with Blair as the brunette took a step forward.

"However long it takes him to make it through a hundred dollar bill at the hotel lounge," Blair responded smirking as opened the door to the backseat of the limo and pulled a laughing Serena down with her onto the plush leather seat with her.


Forty minutes later …

"Your dress is really, really billowy," Serena muttered softly, almost sleepily, her hand still nestled in the warmth between Blair's legs as she burrowed into the brunette's neck contentedly.

"I wasn't exactly planning on sex in the backseat of a car when I got dressed tonight," Blair responded smiling, pushing on Serena's shoulder lightly as the blonde's nose nudged at a ticklish spot on her neck.

"I think we should plan on that every time we get dressed from now on," Serena whispered playfully, lifting her head to kiss the underside of Blair's jaw. "This was nice."

Blair laughed softly at that, reaching around her billowy dress to remove Serena's hand which had started to stroke her again lightly.

As much as she would have liked to stay ensconced with Serena in the backseat of the limo she knew they had to get out of there fairly soon if they didn't want to get caught. Chuck, Nate, Isabel and Kati had come with them in the limo to the party and she knew that they would want to escape from their parents as soon after midnight as possible, which meant that she and Serena had maybe half an hour to pull themselves together and get back upstairs.

"It was cramped and rushed and I nearly fell off of the seat twice," Blair responded softly, bringing Serena's hand up to her face, kissing the tips of the fingers that had brought her to orgasm a few minutes before.

"It was still nice," Serena mumbled, her lips parting a bit when Blair sucked one of her fingers into her mouth.

Serena shifted.

"No," Blair said shaking her head, knowing that she shouldn't have teased Serena a moment before when they couldn't continue with what they had been doing. "We have to go back upstairs," she continued in a softer tone, looking at the blonde apologetically.

"We have time," Serena said ducking her head forward to kiss Blair's lips. "It's not even twelve yet," she continued.

Blair stilled against Serena's lips. "Are you serious?" Blair asked a second later pulling back to look at the blonde.

"About?" Serena asked having lost the thread of the conversation already, all of her attention focused on getting her hand back under Blair's dress.

"Serena, it's 12:10," Blair said, a wide smile spreading across her face as Serena looked at her blinking in confusion, lifting her wrist a moment later to check her watch.

"I didn't hear …" Serena began staring at her watch as if it was the lynchpin in some vast conspiracy against her.

Blair laughed. "I know you didn't," she said teasingly taking Serena's hand and intertwining their fingers. "You were too busy moaning my name," she continued smugly.

Serena eyes widened and then she smiled. "Oh," she murmured softly.

"Happy New Year," Blair said smiling back at Serena, leaning forward to kiss her softly.

"Happy New Year," Serena murmured back against Blair's lips, hugging the brunette to her tightly.

"You know what they say about who you're with at midnight on New Year's Eve, right?" Blair said softly kissing Serena's cheek. They still had a little time and she couldn't seem to tear herself away from the blonde just yet.

"That's who you're going to be with for that year," Serena responded, rubbing Blair's arm gently. "Is this going to be our new tradition?" Serena asked a moment later smiling brightly.

"I think next year we should try for a bed," Blair responded smirking. "And less billowy clothing," she said fighting with her dress as she tried to press herself closer to Serena.

"It's alright," Serena said happily. "We have lots of time to perfect this tradition."

"A lifetime?" Blair asked smiling widely.

"More," Serena replied grinning. "Not even death is going keep me away from you."

"Will our sexy spirits haunt Bergdorf Goodman whispering fashion advice to customers and having hot ghost sex in the change rooms?" Blair asked laughing.

Serena nodded solemnly, managing to hold the expression a whole three seconds before she smiled.

"We should go," Blair sighed reluctantly pulling back from Serena.

The blonde nodded.

"Hey," Serena said as Blair turned to look at the floor of the limo scanning it for her underwear. "I love you."

Blair looked over at her, her hand moving to stroke Serena's cheek. "I love you too," she said softly, leaning forward to kiss the blonde's lips. "Now help me find my underwear."

Serena grinned and peered over the seat gamely.

They were really going to have to start keeping better track of things like that.
