Chapter 4: Snap Back Into Reality
3 Days Later…
Blair and Chuck have been spending every minute together going out shopping, relaxing out on the terrace, and making up for lost times. It had been three days of pure bliss for the newly reconciled couple. This was of course because both Blair and Chuck were avoiding working through the baggage that always seemed to bring them down.
"Blair?" Chuck said hesitantly looking down at her in his lap as she lounged comfortably on him outside watching the vibrant sunset.
"Hmm?" he she hummed in response snapping out of her little trance and looking back up at him.
"You know I was thinking since I'm the only one who knows I think maybe it would be a good idea if we make a pit stop in France before heading back to New York to tell everyone," he paused kissing the top of her head, " I mean I think it would be really nice if all your parents heard the news from us rather than over a phone call or news paper or even worst a gossip girl blast," they both started to laugh at the last part.
"Chuck Bass is willing to face the wrath of Eleanor after finding out you knocked up her daughter out of wedlock and how you have disgraced her name and how society will tare her to shreds, your really willing to put yourself in that line of fire?" she said as she sat up and looked back at him with raised eyebrows.
" Hey what about your father coming after me?" he questioned her.
"First off you know my father, Roman, Cyrus all adore but, stop avoiding the question and answer me are you Chuck Bass willing to face the wrath of my mother?" she pressed him again.
"First of all It's not like were not going to get married we will be a family and we will not disgrace anyone's name and it doesn't even surprise me that her first concern is about herself and not you but, then again don't jump to conclusions about your mother she may surprise you, besides I think she secretly loves me, so yes I am prepared to go in the line of fire for you," he said with a sweet smile.
"You just… did you… oh my god, you just said married," Blair said in absolute shock the truth was Blair would absolutely marry Chuck the only problem was that they haven't even really talked about where there problems lie or even begun trying to resolve them.
"Yes I said married," he looked at with a smirk, " but I did propose and I didn't say when don't worry it will happen once we start working things out and when it does happen you would have never seen it coming I'm already planning it all in my head," he said as he got up from the lounge chair and bent down to scoop Blair up in his arms, "I'm thinking I'll blindfold you and fly you all over the world on the Bass jet and land in some exotic place with a romantic dinner for two set up," Blair began to giggle as he carried her into the bedroom.
"Well were not getting married Bass," she glared at him trying to keep a straight face.
"Oh were not?" he asked amused.
"Right we can't not until we have at least try to work through things nothing is ever going to be perfect I know that but I would like us to at least try and work out our problems before we get ahead ourselves," she reminded him finally breaking the blissful bubble they have been living in the past three days.
"I know that Blair, trust me I know and I think we have both been avoiding this conversation it's just what the next step we both agreed we need to work on things but where do we start, how do we start in case you haven't noticed I'm still very new at this," he said with a deep sigh as he finally sat down on the bed with her still in his arms.
Blair dropped her arms that were wrapped around Chuck's neck and moved out of his lap to sit next to him. She took his hands and looked right into his dark eyes.
"I don't really know I don't know if we can do it on our own I think we would both try to avoid the hard stuff like we have been doing for the past few days maybe I can call Dr. Sherman I know he was my therapist but maybe he can refer us to someone else?" she said hesitantly not sure what his reaction would be to the suggestion of going to couples therapy.
"Like I said before and I'll say it again I am willing to do anything and everything to make us last this time and if talking to some stranger is going to help accomplish it well then I'll do it without a hesitation," he said he wrapped an arm around her waist and scooted her closer towards him, " It's not just about us anymore Blair it's also about a baby who deserves to have to happy loving parents something we never had," he said as he leaned down a softly kissed her barely there belly, "and besides I would be doing this for us even if we didn't have a baby on the way right now I hope you know that ," he said as he kissed her cheek.
Blair smiled as her stomach started to flutter with butterflies all over again. He always made her heart skip a beat whenever he had these warm tender moments with her.
"Ok, I'll call Dr. Sherman and ask for a referral once we get back to New York," she gave him a soft gentle kiss on the lips, "And we can leave in the morning to meet my parents for dinner and break the news," she smiled at him as she got up from the bed.
"You know what I'll make the phone call when we get back if that's all right with you?" he asked her.
"Of course it is," she said as she turned around and headed towards the bathroom. After a moment she turned around and looked at Chuck with a devious smile, "Well Bass since when do I need to extend an invitation for you to come join me in the shower," she said before turning around and started to peel her clothes off leaving a trail for Chuck to follow before disappearing into the room.
"Since I decided to become a good boy," He said with a laugh still sitting on the bed.
"Well I hope you not too good," she said seductively as she reappeared in the doorway of the bathroom with hair pinned up displaying the nape of her neck with nothing on but a black lacy thong that's straps were currently being played with in a taunting manner. Chuck's mouth watered at the sight of her.
"And second thought I'm Chuck Bass and bad is my middle name he said as he lunged towards the bathroom, leaving only a trail of his clothes behind.
'That's what I thought," she laughed as Chuck dropped to his knees and began taking of her thong with his teeth.
