Serena watched Nate and Blair as they danced through the streets of crowded New York City. They looked so happy, so at peace with the world. Since she had came back from boarding school it had been like this. What used to be a threesome was now an exclusive couple who let no others in.

She used to think that it would be Nate and Serena, not Nate and Blair. She used to know that her spot was next to Nate, not the empty blank where no one sat. She used think she'd tell the story of us. The story about how she and Nate were the It Couple.

Now she was alone. Her days with Nate where gone. If only she had pounced on him when she had the chance. If only they had told Blair that were a couple when they had the chance. The chance was gone. All of the dreams together were gone.

It was painful to be this close and not to speaking.

It was painful to try to look busy when they were this close.

She wanted to know if it was killing him, like it was killing her. She wanted to know if the twisting knife was in the wound and his blood was pouring out his body.

Blair was her best friend. She should be happy for her. She was ready to lay her armour down and let Blair have the perfect boy.


She would have to think on that one.

For a very long time.

Maybe forever.

Sparks had flown instantly when they first met. People used to say they were they lucky ones. Complications had gotten in the way of them. It had lead to their fallout, their ending. Their story was over.

It had ended in a tragedy. The next chapter didn't look any better. There was no happy ending in sight.

The walls were built. Each wall had the other blocked out. These walls didn't have any doors, no windows, no openings at all. They were solid, unbreakable. The only broken thing about the walls was the boy and girl trapped on opposite sides.

The story was ending with the walls. The only way for the walls to break was for Blair to release her crawls from Nate and let him come to his true lover.

Or for Blair to cruel up in a hole and die.

Either one would work for Serena.
