Chapter 4: New Faces
It was like a bullet to the head. Such force. As soon as he stepped out of limo and onto the sidewalk and on the other side of the rua was the most awful sight he could ever wish to encounter. Something that made him sick to his stomach. But he didn't know why?

Six Hours Earlier.
Well was it Prada or Marc Jacobs tonight? Blair was stumped. What to wear to a Humphrey dinner?
She was looking progressivo, para a frente to it if she was honest she hadn't really had a night out in sometime, But now she and Nate were going for jantar with Dan and Katie. It would be nice to meet Katie, From what Dan had told her Katie would be the most perfect woman in the entire world. But then again he did say the same thing about Serena. But this was different he wasn't married to Serena.
That's when it occurred to Blair,
Did Serena even know?
Had Dan told her?
Where they still in contact?
She must remember to ask him about it.
Okay so what was it to be, Prada or Marc Jacobs? The blue or the yellow?
“Sweetie, Which one?”
She asked while holding both dresses up.
Nate was trying to do up his tie, trying being the operative word.
“Oh, They're both lovely”
That wasn't an answer. This might seem unimportant to everyone else but Blair really wanted to make a good impression on her hosts.
She turned back to gaze in the mirror. She held one dress up chest then switched to the other, Then again.
After 'fixing' his tie Nate came up behind her and put his arms around her waist, He lightly and softly kissed her neck.
“You'll look beautiful in anything”
She smiled and kissed him back. She was slightly embarrassed. He smiled again.
“The blue one”
He let her go and went back to the other mirror to try and fix his tie. She gazed back at him and thought,
That's why she was marrying him.
He could always make her smile, He always knew what to say to make her happy. He always said the right thing. Nate was her prince charming who was about to become her king. Eight months seemed so long to wait for the dia of her dreams, but wait she would have to do.

It was seven thirty when the couple arrived at Humphrey residence. It was a average sized building, red bricked. Nothing amazing. She was sort of surprised, Dan was in a very highly paid job why didn't he show it? But he was never one to show off or think of money as being the way to happiness. Then it came to mind he had told her, He had only been in the job for a few days, They might not of had a chance to mover yet.
“Which apartment was it?”
Nate asked. He was confused...Nothing new there.
“Oh, Hmm, Oh I don't know, I forgot”
“Oh God sake Blair, How could you forget it?”
“Don't blame me for this...”
There was a silent pause, while they both stopped to think.
“Oh I've got it, We'll knock at all the doors and eventually we'll get there”
Nate's look of confusion turned to a look of shock.
“I can't believe you said that”
“I don't see you coming up with anything better”
Just as an argument was about to erupt their host arrived at the front door.
“Hey you made it”
A sign of relief from both Nate and Blair.
“Oh thank God you must be Katie”
“Yeah, Lovely to meet you both of you, I've heard so much about you. Look come on in, You wont have to go far we're only on the segundo floor”
Blair could not help herself but her sarcasm hadn't completely gone away. She mumbled to Nate as they followed Katie into the building.
“Hear that sweetie, We wouldn't of had to of gone far”
He chuckled and didn't dignify that comment with an answer.
_ _ _
The Humphrey início was very...Homely. Very sweet. Full of fotografias of the happy married couple. She could still not believe that, Dan Humphrey married. Nate had gone into the cozinha and was greeting Dan after so many years, And giving his beautiful host the bottle of vintage wine he and Blair had brought for them, As he did Blair followed the fotografias that were arranged on the mural she saw the wedding photo.
Dan wasn't lying. Katie was extremely beautiful. She smiled at the fotografia when Dan walked over to her.
“See I told you”
They greeted eachother with a kiss on each cheek.
“Yeah, I've got to agree she is beautiful. Oh you're wedding. Don't you look handsome”
“Well I clean up nice”
Katie shouted from the kitchen.
They were all sat around the mesa, tabela the conversation went on to past and present subject until it finally arrived at the subject of Nate and Blair's engagement.
“So when did you two get engaged, I had no idea, When did it happen”
Nate and Blair gazed and eachother and smiled with such joy as Dan made this comment.
“Do you want to tell it, Or shall I?”
They both smiled and Nate began to tell the story.

6 Months earlier.
It was the most expensive restaurant in town. It was an Italian restaurant. Blair's favourite, It was very nice of Nate to take her there.
As they arrived, the line to get in was a mile long. But Blair wasn't worried.
Nate strolled over to the door man who didn't look like the easiest person to get around, But shove a few hundred notes in his hand and he was a cachorro, filhote de cachorro dog.
Nate and Blair flew past the other waiting, paying customers without any guilt. After all why should they be guilty, It wasn't their fault they had money.
Ah, Money wasn't it a nice thing to have.
The jantar was a success, It was lovely. The lagosta was divine. Neither of them had tasted such delicious food, But now it was time for dessert.
Blair ordered the soufflé and Nate had the same.
Finally the night was coming to an end. It had been such a wonderful night. But no anniversary jantar was over until the champagne had been drank.
Nate ordered the biggest, most expensive one on the menu, Nothing was too good for Blair. But there was a little something extra in Blair's glass.
“Well shall we toast?”
Blair said smiling from ear to ear.
“Well, Three years...We're doing good, And I hope it's about to get better...”
He said this staring at the glass and grinning waiting for Blair's reaction as she saw what was lying at the bottom of her glass.
She saw the sparkle and took a closer look, Her eyes became wider and full of shock. Was it what she thought it was.
Soon Nate was down por her side on his knee.
“Blair, I know we have been through some crap in our time, But I know that when I'm with you, I'm happy I'm fulfilled. I've always loved you, You are my love, You're my life. I amor you now, mais than ever. Will you marry me?”
She was in total shock which defiantly showed on her face, Her eyes were filling up with tears until they began to flow down her cheek.
First she nodded.
“Yes, Yes Nate, I will marry you”
He smiled back and slid the ring down her finger, She gazed at it and smiled.
She pulled him up off his knee and held around his neck and kissed him.
The entire restaurant applaud as they still held around eachother both gazing down at Blair's hand.

When they returned início after such a lovely evening. Their slight hiccup at the beginning of the night was forgotten, Both faces were covered in smiles.
Blair stepped out of the limo followed por Nate.
Nate said to the driver as he sent him away.
“Well, That was a great evening. Wasn't Katie just lovely?”
Blair said, She was a little tipsy. The wine does go to her head, Lucky they weren't driving.
“Yeah, She was lovely. Dan seems to be doing well too”
Not exactly listening she just answered.
“Yeah, Dan is well”
Nate's eyes rolled and he let out a small giggle at the sight of Blair's happy yet tipsy mood. That soon vanished when she came to a realization.
“Oh, Nate, Oh no..”
“What?! What is it?”
“I left my bolsa at....At...”
He finished her sentence for her.
“Yes! Dan's...Oh you're so good Nate”
She was giggling so much and nearly fell over. But luckily her prince was there to catch her.
“Well that's the last time you're going out”
She said nothing just giggled.
She jumped up and wrapped her legs around his waist and hugged her arms around his neck
“Nate...I amor you”
He said nothing for a second. He paused and thought how lucky he was, Of all the women in the world, He had the best of the best. Blair Waldorf was his, Even if she was a hopeless drunk, She was his hopeless drunk.
He gazed into her big brown doe eyes and was lost in them, He could not wait to begin the rest of his life with her, It would be perfect. Just him and her, No one else. They would buy a lovely início in city or maybe the country, Maybe one dia they would have children. Nate never thought of himself as the stay at início husband and father, mainly because he didn't want to be one but with Blair, He didn't mind. They could have two boys and a girl or maybe two girls and a boy, He suddenly had to snap out of this dream fantasy, Blair was staring at him.
He repeated what she had said.
“I amor you”
He whispered back in her ear. Both closed their eyes and quickly embraced in a kiss, Blair held around his neck so tightly still beijar him.
They were in amor and nothing was going to ruin that. If only that one person hadn't been standing across the street.
_ _ _
He could not believe what he was seeing. It made him sick and it shouldn't. It was a beautiful scene, a beautiful woman and a handsome man in a sudden embrace of passion out on the rua showing their amor to the world.
But while this was happening Chuck felt so cheated. He had worked for this. For Blair. He had given up his old ways, his old habits, his old 'friends'. All for her, But she didn't want that, But she said at the time that she did.
She promised him.
He was furious.
Why had she made that promise to him and then tore it to pieces.
She was the reason he had gotten back on his feet, But now that she had someone else it didn't matter.
But all the long he was gazing over at her, He was ignoring the face of the man until they let of clinch and the face became all the mais familiar.
His old best friend from high school.
Nate. Nathaniel Archibald.
Chuck could not believe it. Now his stomach was well and truly turning. Then he remembered. Blair had said
“I'm back...with my fiancé”.
It was him. He couldn't help the tear that came to his eye. Blair was marrying Nate. It was torture looking at her so happy with him. He had to turn away. As soon as he did the tear vanished. He was okay again.
But there would be a time when he would have to face her again, or even him and Chuck felt he could not keep the truth from coming out. Should he tell Nate about five years ago? What happened that night.
No, That was just the anger talking.
Chuck was a better person now. He didn't do revenge, but he sure as hell did getting even. If Chuck was going to win back the future Mrs Archibald he would have to show her in a way he had never done before.
