I know, I know, I said this would be a one shot. But after the positive reaction to the story I decided to add one more chapter. THANK YOU for all the kind reviews. The song is Someday by Nickleback.

The reference at the end is to the Britney Spears song Womanizer. I LOVED that they used that as a 'theme song' for Chuck in one of the commercials. . . Take place 1 month after the last chapter.

Chapter 2

Blair was a bit surprised when she saw the e mail from Chuck. It had been a month since they'd talked. . . and done a lot more than talk. A soft smile appeared on her lips. While she'd very much enjoyed the 'more' it was the talking they'd done that mattered. That gave her hope.

Inevitable. It had become her favorite word – not that she'd ever admit it. Looking at the date on the email she realized it had been exactly one month. To the day. Oh, they'd seen each other an exchanged the usual casual conversation and superficial pleasantries over the past month, but nothing serious. Nothing real.

She raised a perfectly shaped eye brow when she realized the e mail was simply an MP3 attachment. Why was Chuck sending her a song? And what song? Curious, she played the song.

How the Hell'd we wind up like this?

Why weren't we able

To see the signs that we missed

Try and turn the tables?

I wish you'd unclench your fists

And unpack your suitcase

Lately there's been too much of this

But don't think it's too late

Nothing's wrong just as long as you know that someday I will

Someday, somehow

I'm gonna make it alright but not right now

I know you're wondering when

(You're the only one who knows that)

Someday, somehow

I'm gonna make it alright but not right now

I know you're wondering when

Well, I'd hope that since we're here anyway

We could end up saying

Things we always needed to say

So we could end up staying

Now the story's played out like this

Just like a paperback novel

Let's rewrite an ending that fits

Instead of a Hollywood horror

Nothing's wrong just as long as you know that someday I will

Someday, somehow

I'm gonna make it alright but not right now

I know you're wondering when

(You're the only one who knows that)

Blair quickly blinked away the tears forming in her eyes, then prepared her reply.

xoxo xoxo xoxo xoxo

Chuck smirked when he saw that Blair had replied to his message. The simple written response softened his smirk into a genuine smile. One word. Eight letters.

Someday.

Then he noticed that she'd attached an MP3 file to her response. Intrigued, he played it.

"Superstar. . ."

Chuck gave his trademark smirk as he relaxed back and listened to Blair calling him a Womanizer using the voice of Britney Spears.

Blair's message was clear to him. She agreed with him on the 'someday', but wasn't letting him off the hook yet. He wouldn't have expected any less from the Upper East Side's Queen B.
