A/N: So I just read Much Ado About Nothing and it is SO Chair that I can't stand it. So this is from my favorite, Act IV Sc. 1. These are quotes from them that I have converted into GG awesomeness. These will be short sections because they're just off of the quotes. The sections aren't related in any way. In fact, they're all over the place. HEre's the first one, pre series.
Summary: "Have you wept all this while?""Yea, and I will weep a while longer.""I will not desire that."
Disclaimer: None is mine. All is attributed to SHakespeare's Much Ado About Nothing. This one is really short but they're going to get longer.
Benedick: Lady Beatrice, have you wept all this while?
Beatrice: Yea, and I will weep a while longer.
Benedick: I will not desire that.
It happened suddenly. As though he had no control over it, it just happened. Serena was gone and Nate was nowhere to be found. Undoubtedly brooding over the flight of his golden beauty. At the very least, some things could be said about Serena. Though she wasn't the brightest bulb, especially in comparison to her effervescent best friend, she was entirely Nate's match.
And it was the subject of those throwaway thoughts that Chuck had yet to realize. Like it was ingrained in his brain from the very beginning.
Effervescent best friend.
Those were thoughts that should not be in his head. And as he stood over her during his reverie, he was quite sure. Something had happened within him. Something he should be quite fearful of.
Blair raised her damp dark eyes to his hovering figure and wiped the moisture hastily away.
"What do you want, Bass?"
He knelt beside her on the bathroom floor as she looked on him cruelly.
"I'm bored," he smirked finally.
"Do you find my pain amusing?" she countered. His gaze was hard and intense and it made her look away. She didn't know why he was here or what he was doing but she wanted to make it stop. It didn't make any sense.
"Nate's away with his grandparents," Chuck mused.
"What are you doing in here all alone?" he asked.
"Why do you care?" Blair asked in frustration. "Why are you even here? We're not friends."
"Sure we are," Chuck shrugged. "We're friends in a merry war."
She looked up at him and laughed.
"We are friends," he decided before continuing awkwardly, "and I don't want bad things to happen to you."
Blair brushed back her hair and he knew they were going to act as though he had never said anything.
Chuck relaxed against the bathroom wall, making certain that she was aware that he wasn't leaving. He wasn't sure what compelled him to make such an action but he liked being in her presence.
Maybe that wasn't such a good reason.
"I know why Nate isn't here," Blair finally said.
"The Vanderbilts want to whisk him away from The Captain."
Blair shot him a look and laughed lightly.
"Don't do that, Bass," she said, rolling her eyes. "Don't pretend I'm like one of those sluts you troll around with. I know something happened at the Shepard Wedding."
"What happened at the Shepard Wedding?" Chuck asked carefully. She stared at him for a long time.
"You tell me."
He couldn't tell if she knew that he was aware of what happened or she just desperately wanted him to.
He wished he knew. He watched her rest her forehead on her knees and sigh.
He knew she could tell that he could tell.
"Have you been crying this whole time?" he asked. "Because of him?"
"Yes," Blair sighed, finally something truthful. "And he's probably going to make me cry a lot more."
"Blair," Chuck said softly. She finally looked him in the face. "That isn't something I want."
