A/N: The first chapter was suppose to be a one shot but people wanted me to continue with it, I might make this short and sweet but we'll see what happens, I miss Serenate so much and I wish season 4 could be this way! Please review.
Serena was the first to wake up, Nate and Blair had fallen asleep, she smiled to herself it was just like old times, she smiled when she saw Nate was holding her tightly, she snuggled up to him and imagined that there were no problems and they were free to be together, Blair stretched her hands out and knocked Nate in the face, he woke up startled and accidentally pushed Serena off the bed, she landed on the floor with a loud thud, the three of them looked at each other and burst out laughing.
"Nice going B." Serena joked.
"I'm not that one who knocked you off the bed S." Blair said.
"Oh yes it was Natie." Serena said.
Blair and Serena looked at each other knowingly, Serena got back up from the floor and grabbed a pillow, the two girls started to hit Nate with pillows he tried stopping them, he grabbed both of them and pushed them onto the bed.
"Threesome." Serena joked.
Blair looked horrified and Nate laughed.
"She's joking Blair." Nate said calmly.
"Well with her you never know and I'm engaged remember?" Blair said, trying to lighten up but still coming across as stiff.
Serena looked at her friend, Blair had a fox-like face with beautiful brown hair and chocolate brown eyes, but now Blair had seemed years older than Nate and her, Chuck and Blair always seemed older than Nate and Serena, while their relationship was angsty while Nate and Serena's relationship was more playful and light, all though they did have their problems and it was in no way less painful when they broke up, they still knew they were young and needed to enjoy their lives, Serena wondered if Blair knew that she should enjoy her life instead of getting married so soon.
"Are you sure you want to be engaged?" Serena asked.
Blair fiddled with her hair and then looked at Serena.
"Louis is who I should be with." She said softly.
She said she should be with him, shouldn't she have said I want to be with him? Poor Queen B looks like she's in a love triangle or should I say square?
"And according to my father I should have been with you." Nate said.
Serena looked at him, was he trying to say he made a mistake when he left Blair? Nate noticed how Serena's expression changed.
"What are you trying to say?" Blair asked.
"What I'm trying to say is that you have to follow your heart and be with whoever you want to be with." Nate said wisely.
Serena and Blair giggled, it was not everyday their favorite stoner could be so deep with wisdom, Nate looked at the two girls, he had been in love with both of them when he was younger but he had always be madly in love with Serena, they knew him better than anyone else.
"Natie the all insightful wise one is right B, you should be with whoever you want to be with, if it makes sense to you then that's all that matters." Serena said.
"I know you're both right but Louis is amazing, he's not Brooklyn like Dan and he's not complicated like Chuck, do you see how good he sounds on paper? He's the type of guy I imagined rescuing me, when I realized you two would end up together when I was 8. I have a lot to think about." Blair said.
Serena and Nate looked each each other, even Blair knew they belonged together when she was in love with Nate.
"Louis seems great Blair but make sure you're making the right decision for yourself please it's about what you want." Nate said kindly.
He walked over to Blair and hugged her tightly, she held onto him and remembered how she always wanted to marry Nate once upon a time, she smiled to herself, Nate and Serena were mystic, she was sure she would end up being maid of honor at their wedding one day and she, well she needed to find out what she wanted.
"Thanks N and S, I don't know what I'd do without my two best friends and please break up with Raina before you two end up having sex, I'm sure if I wasn't here it would have happened already!" She said.
Serena bit her lip, Blair was the voice of reason..
"We're always here for you and ummm I guess you're right." Serena said.
"Not really I mean I have a girlfriend." Nate said.
I guess his memory is coming back to him. Blair noticed Serena's happy demeanor change.
"That never stopped you before Nate. I have to go I'll see you soon S."Blair said.
We love B's honestly don't we?Blair winked at Serena and smiled, she grabbed her stuff and walked out of Serena's room, leaving Serena and Nate alone with their complicated drama.
"You should probably go back to Raina." Serena said.
"Serena, don't be that way." He said.
She looked at his almost innocent like blue eyes, she never wanted to hurt him again but right now he said nothing would have happened with them because of Raina, then again what did she expect? For Nate to leave his loyal girlfriend for her? She knew she was wrong yet all she wanted was Nate. Serena bit her lip and tried wiping away the tears that had started to fill into her deep blue eyes. She was sad because she realized she had lost the one guy she really loved and it was almost too late.
"What are we doing with Nate?" Serena asked.
"Um we're standing in your room?" He said dumbly.
"No Nate I mean with us, what are we doing?" She asked.
"I don't know, honestly Serena how do I know you won't kiss Dan again or meet some Colin guy and end up with him? I don't know how many times I can go through what happened with us." He said honestly.
Serena walked over to him and wrapped her arms around his neck and looked into his blue eyes.
"Nate, you have no reason to trust me again but I want to at least show you it's different now. I love you, I've always loved you from the time I was a little girl, you were my first crush and the first guy I made love to and it was love Nate even when we were 15 years old, I made mistakes and I'm not perfect but this time if we have a chance, I'd never leave you not for a second, so I don't know what to do anymore but fight for you Nate if that's what it takes." Serena said emotionally.
Nate felt his heart contort inside his chest, Serena was staring intently at him, with so much emotion that he had never seen before, she was vulnerable and honest, it was like somehow she had taken all her walls down for him and that in itself was proof to him that she really would do anything to make it right with him.
"Serena, you know I love you, like you said it was love at 15 and it's still the same now I don't care about the mistakes you made, there's nothing you could do to make me love you less, but I think we rushed everything if we try again it has to be different Serena, I won't go through that again." He said.
Serena felt the tears in her eyes again and looked away from him, Nate touched her chin slowly and moved her face so it was facing him, he lifted her chin up so he could look directly into her beautiful, blue eyes.
"I never want to do that again Nate, it's different now, I promise." She said sincerely.
Serena tightened her arms around his neck, he smiled and looked at her with adoration, Serena smiled too, she loved how he looked at her like she was the only girl in the whole world. Nate put his arms around her waist and pulled her close to him, he rubbed his nose against her's and then softly kissed her soft, pink lips, the kiss lasted for only a few seconds, Nate didn't want to be a cheater again, he promised he wouldn't cheat on another girl again after he saw how it deeply upset Blair.
Golden Boy might do stupid things but at least his heart is in the right place, or is it just the weed talking again?
Serena groaned slightly when Nate pulled away but she didn't want to make him cheat, she loved him enough to wait. How very "The Age of Innocence " of her.
"I'm sorry, it's…" Nate began to say.
"It's okay, I understand." Serena said kindly.
"I'm going to tell her about us. Do you want to come with me when I tell her? You can stay in Chuck's room, she won't know you're there." Nate said.
Serena heard the door to her room open, to her surprise Raina was standing in the doorway.
"So this is where you were Nate? With Serena? I saw the Gossip Girl Blast, there was a picture of Blair, Serena and you and there was a picture of you kissing her." She said incredulously.
"Raina did you find Serena's room?" Jenny asked.
Little did Serena know, Jenny had come back last night and she wasn't too thrilled about Blair and Serena being there, considering Blair exiled her and she got into trouble for trying to destroy Serena. What ever happened to sweet little non raccoon looking Little J?
"You're being my stalker again Jenny?" Serena said firmly.
"Maybe you shouldn't have threesomes in your Mom's Penthouse Serena." Jenny shot back.
"Jenny come on you know that never happened and what you did wasn't nice." Nate said.
Jenny rolled her eyes.
"Seriously Nate, you act like you never kissed me and wrote me a love letter." Jenny said.
"You wrote her a love letter?" Serena asked.
"It was a long time ago S." Nate said calmly.
"Excuse me, Nate you dated Jenny too? Is there anything else I don't know about you?" Raina asked.
"He had sex with Serena when he was dating Blair and clearly something is still going on with Nate and Serena." Jenny said.
"You know J I liked you so much better when I first met you." Nate said sounding a bit sad.
"HELLO Nate, I'm your girlfriend and do you know how bad this looks?" Raina questioned.
"Raina I'm sorry but I don't think we can be together." Nate said honestly.
"You're breaking up with me because of Serena?" She asked.
"It's complicated Raina, you should be with someone who knows what he wants." Nate said sincerely.
"Nice going Nate, you left another girl for Serena I-want- every-guy-in-the -world- Van Der Woodsen.
"I'm going back to Chicago, the Upper East Side is too messed up for me." Raina said honestly.
Another one bites the dust. Raina walked over to Nate and kissed him softly, she said goodbye and walked away.
"Jenny, you're such a brat!" Serena said angrily.
"You're a slut!" Jenny yelled.
"Girls! Enough, just stop Serena lets go." Nate said.
Serena glared at Jenny, Nate grabbed Serena's hand and pulled her out of her room.
"Nate, I need my clothes and toiletries." Serena said, as he pulled her towards the elevator.
"I still have your old clothes and toiletry kit in the suite." Nate said.
Serena smiled to herself, he kept all her things it proved that Nate knew she would come back.
Nate and Serena walked into his suite he shared with Chuck, she felt like she was home.
"You can't do this to me Chuck." Blair said loudly.
"You wouldn't have come here if you didn't miss me." Chuck said sounding equally loud.
There was a loud crash, it sounded like glass breaking. Nate and Serena exchanged nervous glances and ran into the lounge, shattered glass was strewn all over the floor, Chuck's hand was bleeding profusely, his eyes were still and he was in shock, Blair was laying on the floor parallel to the glass, if she was any closer, the charred glass pieces would have pierced her porcelain skin, Serena instinctively rushed over to her best friend.
"B, are you okay?" Serena asked concernedly.
"Chuck, he , I'm." Blair tried to speak but she was in too much shock to speak in complete sentences.
"Chuck! Did you hit Blair?" Nate asked.
"No, no." Chuck said.
Nate and Serena looked at each other, fear in both of their eyes, but they were the non judging breakfast club and they weren't about to jump to conclusions just yet.
Serena carefully helped Blair up from the floor and directed her to the sofa, Blair was shaken up, she carefully rubbed Blair's back.
"B do you want me to call the ambulance?" Serena asked.
"No, Louis can't know." She said softly.
Nate and Chuck walked into the living room, Chuck had a bandage on his wrist, his face was contorted with guilt and pain.
"Blair are you okay? I wasn't aiming for you I would never hurt you intentionally." Chuck said sincerely.
"You could have hurt her badly Chuck." Nate said angrily.
"It was a mistake Nathaniel I would never hurt the love of my life like that." Chuck said.
"Chuck, I know you wouldn't hurt me, I think you should see a therapist, get some help." Blair said sounding and behaving far more mature than her 20 years.
"I will Blair, I'll do anything to make this better so you won't marry that guy?" Chuck asked hopefully.
Nate came closer to Serena, he sat down next to her and held her hand, she squeezed his hand.
"I'm sorry Chuck but I tried so much, I have to go, I'm leaving to Paris tonight." Blair said sadly.
"For how long?" Serena asked sounding scared.
"A few weeks or maybe forever.." Blair said.
"Blair you can't leave, you don't have to choose anyone, choose yourself, please stay." Serena pleaded.
"She's right Blair, don't go, choose yourself." Chuck said, his voice was pained.
"Blair don't go. Stay with us, you don't belong with that French guy." Nate said.
"You know what? I don't care even if you choose Dumb Humphrey, he's nice and lives near us even if that means Brooklyn, just stay. Chuck said.
The three friends stared at Chuck, he was being completely selfless.
A single tear drop fell from Blair's eye as she looked at her 2 childhood friends and the love of her life.
"I'm sorry, I have to go." Blair said quickly.
She turned around and ran away from the three people who meant everything to her. Serena watched as her best friend ran away from her, tears began to fall from her beautiful blue eyes, she now knew how Blair felt when she left, Nate pulled Serena close to him and held her in his arms.
"She'll be back."Nate said soothingly.
Serena held on tighter to Nate, he was all she had left, she needed him more than ever.
"I can't believe she's going Nate." Serena said softly.
Chuck stared at Nate and Serena, it was clear they were reigniting the flames of their love but Blair and his had run cold, now she was gone forever and he had no will to survive.
"I can't take this anymore." Chuck said grimly.
He walked out of the living room.
"Serena, I don't want that to happen to us." Nate said.
"I don't want that either, I just hope B comes back." Serena said.
Nate stood up, he pulled Serena up from the sofa, he pulled her close to him and kissed her pink lips with passion, his tongue found hers, his hands roamed around her perfect body, Serena kissed him back with passion and held onto him tightly. They pulled away slowly and looked at each other. Chuck walked back into the room, he started to clap.
"Well done, what will your future problems be? Who looks better? Who finished the good shampoo that makes your hair look so great? Do you honestly think love will be enough Nate and Serena?" Chuck said condescendingly.
"Chuck you're drunk and you're wrong about everything." Nate said firmly.
"Am I Nathaniel? Serena left you and went to Paris, she kissed Humphrey and you made good use of my black book, that sounds like true love to me." Chuck said bitterly.
"You lost Blair because of your bullshit Chuck, you're not the only one who ever lost something." Nate said angrily.
Serena squeezed his hand and pleaded with him with her eyes for him not to push it with Chuck. She was scared Chuck would do something stupid.
"Don't talk about Blair." Chuck said angrily.
Chuck walked over to Nate looking menacing, he was shaking, he punched Nate hard in the face and pushed Serena onto the sofa. Then he stared at both of them shocked at his actions.
"I'm… Bart Bass." Chuck said to himself.
He looked at both his friends and turned around, he walked away.
Nate rushed over to Serena, she was more worried about him.
"Nate I'm fine, your nose is bleeding, sit down I'll get tissues." She said.
Serena ran to the bathroom and got a whole bunch of tissues she ran over to Nate and told him to place it on his nose, the bleeding finally stopped and Serena and Nate went to lay down in his bed.
"I'm scared Nate, for us and Blair and Chuck." Serena said.
"Me too Serena, me too." Nate said softly.
N was scared that what Chuck said was true, that love wasn't enough.
S was scared that she had lost her best friend forever and that Nate would change his mind about them.
C was lost and shattered.
B was last seen in Brooklyn with D, she was seen smiling when she left his apartment.
So much drama, so little time, poor N and S will they ever out run their past? Will star-crossed lovers B and C ever find their way back to each other? Only time will tell.
You know you love me,
