A/N: Sorry it has took so long to get this up. I was completely swamped in school work and real life. This is the final chapter. So any reviews would be awesome. I am thinking of starting a new fanfic soon. (Chuck and Blair obviously).
Chuck and Blair still can't seem to let the other one win. When an unexpected visitor from their past comes back on the scene Blair may have to put away her pride and admit her feelings before she loses him.
I am thinking on using that as my summery thing. Let me know if you think it seems interesting.
"Ew, oh my god, ew"
Chuck was woken from his sleep by Serenas whispers of disgust.
"Are they...?" he heard Nate's voice carrying in from the other room.
Chuck opened his eyes slowly. Blair was facing him, with her hands between their chests, and his arms wrapped protectively around her, still sleeping peacefully.
He shifted a bit, careful not to wake her.
"Shh.." Serena whispered as Chuck heard Nate come to the door. "I think they might be awake.
Chuck unwrapped himself from Blair and sat up to face his shocked friends standing in the door.
He put his finger over his lips indicating them to be quiet when he saw Serena's face contort to anger.
He moved to the side of the bed, careful to keep his lower half covered as he reached for the pants he had discarded earlier.
He quickly slipped them on and began walking to the door, placing his finger to his lips again at the first sign of Serena's protest. He quietly pushed them out the door and closed it slowly behind him, looking at Blairs sleeping form once more.
After Nate and Serena had sat down, Chuck mixed himself a drink and sat on the couch across from them.
They continued to stare at him in disbelief until Chuck looked up at Serena with his signature smirk.
"CHUCK I -" she screamed reaching across the distance between them to punch him repeatedly.
Chuck immediately jumped up at her sudden movement and pushed her away laughing as she continued to try to hit him.
"Serena keep it down" he said in a hushed voice "You're going to wake Blair."
She stopped and gave him a menacing look. "I'm going to wake Blair?" she questioned harshly. "You should-"
"Okay, Serena. I get it, you're mad or whatever" he said now, more seriously. "But keep it civil."
She huffed and sat back down next to Nate, who had been watching in silence the whole time.
When Chuck had thought she was calm enough he hastily sat down across from her again.
"How could you let this happen, Chuck?" she cried.
"I didn't do anything." Chuck said sounding aloof.
"You didn't do anything?" she repeated skeptically. "So, you didn't have sex with Blair?" she asked almost laughing at how ridiculous this was.
He simply looked at the ground. "I didn't do anything?" he thought, that was probably his weakest attempt at an argument ever.
He looked at Nate who had been silent the whole time.
"Look" he started. "I'm sorry, Nate."
Before he could continue Nate held up his hands surrendering.
"Don't be. I don't feel anything for Blair and I know she doesn't feel anything for me, she hasn't for a long time." he smiled. "It may be a little awkward but, I can get past it. Just don't screw up again."
Chuck smiled in appreciation. Even if he didn't know where he and Blair stood right now, he was happy to have Nates approval.
Serena scoffed and rolled her eyes.
Chuck turned to her, slightly annoyed.
"And what objections do you have, dear sister?"
Serena was shocked at his sudden change in tone, but recovered quickly, turning into her defensive friend mode.
"What objections do I have?" she repeated "How about when you hurt her I am the one that has to deal with it. When you rejected her before who had to stop her from flying off to France? Or when you left her in Tuscany who had to reassure her she was okay every night over the phone!" Her voice was rising now. "She's my best friend Chuck, obviously I am going to be mad at the thought of you hurting her again!"
When she was finished Chuck looked at the ground for a full minute before responding.
"It's different now." he said simply.
"How is it different, Chuck?" she asked sadly as he still refused to look at her. "You were the one that sent the tip to Gossip Girl because you were jealous, then you rejected her. You invited her to Tuscany and bailed for the interior designer because Bart made you feel pressured."
He looked at her with a menacing look. " Look" he said shortly "I know I haven't been the best to her in the past, I know I hurt her" he continued, angry with Serena for bringing it all up. He knew she was just being a good friend but it he couldn't help but to feel mad as she reminded him of all the pain Blair had suffered thanks to him.
"I know I did, but things have changed. I can commit to it now without feeling scared or anything else..."
He sighed and shook his head. "I love her."
Serena and both shifted uncomfortably at Chucks confession.
This movement was not lost on him. "I know this is slightly out of my character, but it's true. I love her and I am not afraid to admit it anymore." He said sternly.
Blair reached out across the bed for Chuck. When she realized he was no longer with her she immediately woke up and opened her eyes. The room was dark and empty. The door was closed but she could see light shining in from underneath "The power must be back" she muttered to herself. She got out of bed and threw on Chucks shirt as she made her way to the door. She stopped when she heard muffled voices from the other side.
"..I love her and I am not afraid to admit it anymore" It was Chuck.
She tried not to scream in delight as she opened the door and walked into the living room.
Her eyes went directly to Chuck sitting on the couch, slouched slightly forward clearly not comfortable in the conversation.
He started to smile when he saw Blair coming from the bedroom. She was standing to the side of the other three in just HIS shirt, messy hair and tired eyes. She smiled shyly when he looked at her.
She quickly looked at Serena and Nate who were staring at her intently and she immediately reddened.
Chuck noticed her embarrassment and stood to walk to her.
She looked to Chuck as he began to approach. She didn't know why she felt so self conscious now with her friends. She had slept with Nate, and she and Serena had been friends for so long that they had no problem changing in front of each other. But she felt her face go hot under their gaze as she stood in Chucks large shirt and played with her hands.
"Hey" he said softly as he took her hands in his.
"Hi" she replied in a small, still embarrassed voice.
His face spread to a wide grin and he hugged her closely and kissed the top of her head, laughing.
"Did we wake you?" he whispered in her ear, still hugging her.
"No, you weren't there" she said shyly looking at the ground.
"My apologies" He let go and smiled at her, taking her hand and walking away to the bedroom again, looking at the clock on the wall. "3:00" he said, to no one in particular. "We're going back to bed" he informed Nate and Serena, as Blair tried to pull him in the room, pouting. Serenas face turned to complete disgust that was quickly mirrored in Nates face at this statement. He laughed "No funny stuff with you two here, I assure you" he closed the door behind them with a smile.
He looked to Blair who was now standing in the middle of the room facing away from him, pulling her hair into a messy bun. His jaw dropped as he noticed just how sexy she was, standing in his large dress shirt, now with an exposed neck. He walked slowly to her, wrapped his arms around her waist and began kissing from her ear down to her shoulder. Blair fell back a little into his embrace and turned her head away, exposing more to him. "You look dead sexy in nothing but my shirt" he breathed into her neck as he nipped her, quickly soothing her skin with his tongue, a small moan escaping her lips.
"Shhhh." he whispered, his tongue now lightly tracing her ear lobe "Serena and Nate are only outside the door. I promised them nothing "funny" he said with an ironic laugh.
She turned around, grabbing his face and kissing him fiercely. "Too bad" she breathed.
He laughed again against her lips as she pulled him to the bed.
He made a mental note that a relationship with Blair seemed like something he could get used to.
