Hey guys, Lauren here :)
I know, I know. You can't believe I've started a new story when I have 5 others to update, it's crazy. But I couldn't help it, this idea was taunting me too much :P
SUMMARY: When Chuck was shot he also suffered a head wound and now has partial amnesia, he has memories up to Christmas 2006, but no later. Therefore all his memories of falling in love with Blair Waldorf are gone, and she's scared that their story is forever lost.
Will they ever find their way back to each other? How can he make up for his past mistakes when he can hardly remember them?
In each chapter he will start remembering things when the group starts telling him all that's he's forgot that's happened in the lost four years :) I like the consept, tell me what you think in your reviews, should I continue?
DISCLAIMER: I don't own Gossip Girl or the characters silly, they belong to that Josh dude :)
Chuck Bass blinked.
He blinked twice and then he groaned. The bright lights above him were enough to make the headache he already had ten times worse.
"Chuck?" He closed his eyes, and clenched his jaw shut as the sound of a high squeal entered his ear and he turned to the left to see Blair Waldorf sitting in the chair beside him. Her brown hair was scraped back loosely into a high pony tail, her eyes were red and damp and her face was bare. She looked nothing like the girl he knew.
"Not so loud Waldorf." He drawled, "Where the hell am I?"
She breathed in once and tried to collect herself, wiping a tear away, "You're in the hospital."
He looked around him now and took in the bright ceiling lights, the white colored walls and the smell of antiseptic, "What happened?"
"You are such an ass-hole Bass." Blair cried, hitting his arm and then retracting hers as if there was an electric spark or something between them.
"I am so sorry I dragged you down into the hospital and ruined your Saturday Blair." Chuck rolled his eyes.
She narrowed hers and continued to stare at him for a second before shaking her head and getting up, "I'm sorry, I thought I could do this but… with you acting as if nothing happened.. I just can't."
Chuck's eyebrows furrowed, "Wait Waldorf, what are you going on about? And how did I end up here?"
She turned around and eyed him, "You were shot."
He raised his eyebrows wide, "What? When."
"You've been asleep for a week now." She told him, "Thanks for that, by the way, ruining my Summer abroad. You really could never leave well enough alone, could you?"
"Summer?" He asked, perplexed but before Blair could reply Nate Archibald walked into the room.
"Hey." He told the brunette, rubbing her arm, "How is he?"
"Awake." Blair stated and pointed towards Chuck with her chin.
Nate turned, with wide eyes and finally caught site of his friends brown eyes wide open, "Oh thank god. How are you feeling?"
"I just got shot Nathaniel." Chuck groaned, "And I can't remember how it happened. How do you think I'm feeling?"
"Great." Nate replied sarcastically and Blair bit her lip. The situation for her was already getting awkward enough, but she was sure at any moment Serena would be back with their coffee's and there wouldn't be just one, but two recently broken up couples all in one small hospital room.
She was starting to feel constrained.
"I'm gonna get some air." She announced and then turned to go.
However as soon as her hand was about to collide with the door handle it pushed itself down and opened into the room. Serena van der Woodsen hurried in with three coffee's clouding her view and pushed the door closed with her back.
Too late. Blair thought and sighed.
"I have two latte's and a black sugar." She announced as chipper as she could given the circumstances and pashed out the coffee, "Oh my god, you're awake!"
Chuck Bass stared in confusion as the blonde girl acknowledged his state and his mouth swung slightly open.
"S, can you get the nurse?" Blair finally asked.
The blonde was out of the room and down the hall in an instant.
"When did Goldy locks get here?" Chuck finally asked in confusion.
"She came with me Chuck." Blair rolled her eyes, "Don't pretend that you didn't know that we were going to France. You always find a way of pulling us back don't you Bass-hole?"
His eyebrows furrowed even closer together.
"Blair come on." Nate shook his head, "He's been shot. You guys can sort out your problems later."
Chuck opened his mouth but didn't have a chance to speak before Serena entered again followed by a red-headed nurse.
She smiled widely at the brunette boy and grabbed his chart, "It's nice to see you're finally awake Charles. How are you feeling?"
Chuck groaned at the question, "Wonderful." He replied and Nate shot him a narrow look causing him to huff.
"Are you feeling any pain?"
"I feel a little dizzy." Chuck admitted, "But no pain."
"That's good." The nurse smiled, "Your step-mother has just been contacted, she's on her way."
"Lilly, Rufus and Eric are at the hotel down the road." Serena told him when she noticed Chuck's puzzled expression, "I just called them and told them you were awake."
"Wait…" Chuck shook his head, "Step-mother?"
"Yes." The nurse nodded, "Is there anyone else you would like me to call for you, Mr Bass?"
Chuck nodded, "Could you try to contact my father, Bart Bass?"
The room went silent in an instant. Blair Waldorf's eyes widen and her hand guided itself up to her mouth.
"Excuse me for a moment Mr Bass." The nurse gave a small smile, "I'll see what I can do. In the meantime, I think you should get some rest, can we get you visitors out of here please?"
They barely managed nods and Chuck watched as the group hurried out with a weary look. Once they were out he let out a long sigh wondering just how the day became so confusing.
Outside the door Blair Waldorf was struggling not to break out into a fight with the red-head nurse.
"What do you mean?" She cried, "He thinks his father is alive!"
"Miss please." The nurse shook her head, "I need to get the doctor she can explain everything to you."
"No I want an explanation right now, does he have amnesia?"
"It's possible." The nurse stated and the three friends gasped.
Serena van der Woodsen stood in shock, whilst Blair Waldorf couldn't help the tears that came to her eyes. Nate Archibald ran a hand through his hair and then pulled the crying brunette to him and enveloped her in a hug.
"What does this mean?" Nate asked above Blair's head, "He forgot some memories? He still remembered all of us."
"We'd have to run some tests, ask Charles some questions." The nurse persisted, "I need to go get the doctor now, she'll answer all of your questions."
They waited for two hours as the doctor came and examined Chuck, taking tests and questioning him. When she finally stepped out of the room she addressed the people outside.
"Doctor, how is he?" Lily Humphrey asked in concern.
"Are you the immediate family of Charles Bass?" The doctor pressed and Lily nodded, replying she was his mother.
"Charles has a case of amnesia which is not uncommon considering the blow to his head after he was shot." The doctor sighed sadly, "Charles has memories up to a certain point in his life. When asked the date he replied it was December 2006."
The group sounded with shock.
"Oh my god." Blair Waldorf breathed. She felt herself feel dizzy and Serena pulled her head into her arms.
"He won't remember." Blair cried quietly into Serena's arms, and her blonde bestfriend nodded in sad understanding.
"Is it permanent?" Rufus Humphrey asked with an audible gulp.
The Doctor's eyebrows furrowed together, "Nothing is certain. Charles may get his memory back in time, through stories, pictures, anything. He might start remembering bits and pieces and it might all come back to him eventually.
"Might." Eric van der Woodsen pressed his lips tightly together.
"There's a possibility Charles won't recall any of his memories from the last four years."
"No!" Blair cried, "No, this can't be right. He can't just forget us! Too much has happened in the last four years."
"You can only hope and try." The doctor told her sadly. Her pager buzzed and she pulled it out, "I'm sorry, I'll be back to talk to you later, but I'm needed."
"Thank you Doctor." Rufus shook her hand and they watched as the woman left in silence.
Finally Nate stood up, "We have to tell him. Everything. He's get his memory back eventually. He has to. He's Chuck bloody Bass, if he can come back to us after a gun shot and a head wound then…"
"He can get his memory back." Blair nodded and pulled away from Serena, "We have to talk to him. Please Lily, could we have a moment with him, just the three of us."
Lily Humphrey nodded solemnly, "We'll be here."
The three bestfriends walked back into the hospital room and took chairs around Chuck's bed. He watched them carefully.
"Something's wrong." He sighed, "Something's really wrong."
Nate bit his lip and took a deep breathe in, "The doctors told you ,right?"
"Apparently I have amnesia." He chuckled, "But I don't see how I can. There aren't any blank spaces in my memory or anything…."
"Four years." Blair whispered, "Four years of blank memories."
Chuck narrowed his eyes at her, "No."
She pulled her hands up to her mouth and cried slightly into them before brushing her tears away with a sigh, "Oh god."
"December 2006." Serena let out a breathe, "I'm still at boarding school."
Chuck turned to her now, and nodded.
"We're still at Constance." Nate piped in, "Before… everything happened."
Chuck looked between them all, and then laughed, "No.. come on this is ridiculous how could this have happened! I can't just suddenly forget four years of my life!"
Blair abruptly got up from her seat and went for the door.
Nate got up and followed her, whilst Serena stared at Chuck carefully.
"I know you can't help this." She smiled sadly, "But we need you to try to remember Chuck, this is killing her."
"Waldorf?" Chuck asked, "Why is she so worried?"
Serena pressed her lips together, "She should tell you."
Chuck shook his head, "This is so weird."
"I know bro, but…"
"Bro?" Chuck laughed, "So Lily married my dad."
Serena laughed, "Yep."
"And then he died."
The room went quiet, "I'm so sorry."
He opened his mouth slightly, "I should have been shocked. I was upset when they told me but it wasn't shocking. I felt like I already knew."
Serena forced a smile, "That's the first step. It's a good sign."
"What year is it?"
"2010." She nodded, "June."
"They'll come back to you." Serena said as reassuringly as she could.
He was silent in response.
"Go get the love birds will you?" He finally said, "We might as well spend some time catching up."
Serena nodded, trying not to narrow her eyes as he referred to Nate and Blair as the 'love birds'.
As soon as she left the room Chuck Bass broke down.
