“No!” Blair suddenly shouted cutting off Nate’s ramblings about where to begin the story of their life. Everybody turned to see her staring at the future Chuck and Blair who just previously had been whispering to each other and laughing, their hands still entwined. “No, No, No, No, No. This is not happening. How could that possibly happen,” she wildly gestured to Chuck and Blair. She then turned to the Chuck who was seated right seguinte to her. “You don’t believe them do you? I mean us…together….that will never happen.”
Chuck laughed under his breath as he stared back at Blair, “I don’t think it’s that much a stretch, Waldorf. Apparently we’re inevitable,” he finished with a smirk on his face.
Blair let out a small cry then continued, “This is not happening. I refuse to believe this, because no matter what you say I will not end up with Chuck Bass. I have a whole plan and nothing you people say will screw it up.” And with that she ran into the elevator.
Silence engulfed the seven people still left sitting in the room. Young Chuck sat looking back at the elevator with a sad expression on his face until he covered it up and looked back to hear a conversation between the older Chuck and Blair.
“I have to go talk to her,” Blair said.
“Of course. But let me come with you. I don’t want you to be alone,” Chuck said, his voice softening at the end.
“No. I’m sorry, but this is something I need to do alone. Anyway you should stay here and talk to yourself.”
Chuck nodded, laughing at Blair’s humorous smirk. “I understand. Just be careful ok. I amor you,” he finished as he gave her a long kiss.
“I amor you too,” She said, walking towards the elevator, leaving Chuck watching her, almost mirroring his past versions expression as she walked out. He then turned to see himself staring at him with a look almost impossible to read. It was filled with every emotion from disbelief to fear and maybe even joy and excitement. Then he suddenly put up a tough mask and started for the elevator. “I can’t stay here. You can come with me if you like, but this still doesn’t mean I’ll believe,” he called back, getting future Chuck to follow him to the elevator.
“Well it looks like it’s just us four,” Serena said as she adjusted herself to get mais comfortable.
“Why do they never pay attention to us,” Nate laughed. “You’d think they live in their own world. But anyway, we’ll just go on without them, I guess.”
“So let me just get this straight,” Nate started. He then gestured at him and Serena sitting seguinte to him, “We are together. We got together after college and that’s that. I mean, how did Blair and I…how did we…” he trailed off.
“Break up?” The older Nate finished the boy’s sentence. “Well the first time she broke up with me because after Serena and I slept together she realized I didn’t amor her. It actually took her awhile until she realized….”
“Wait, I slept with Nate while he was still dating Blair?!” Serena spoke up incredulously. “You can’t be serious, how could I possibly do that to my best friend and be ok with it! Am I seriously that messed up!”
“You weren’t. Actually I ran away to boarding school right afterward. Well it wasn’t only because of that, but still I left. But while I was there I changed, and you’re going to too,” older Serena answered.
“This is just….too strange. I mean Blair and I break up, she gets with Chuck and I’m just ok with that! He’s my best friend!” Nate said beginning to get a little frustrated.
“Trust me. You don’t care. I mean you might’ve at one point, but when you see them together you’ll understand. Anyway you both are just trying to ignore the facts. Care to share your feelings?” Older Nate finished, trying to hold in his laughter as he looked at Serena’s annoyed face, automatically understanding that she wanted to hear people’s opinions.
At his comment the younger Serena lifted her head from where it had been placed in her hands. “How are you two so calm about this? I can’t handle this, it’s just too much. I need to be alone,” and with that she ran out of the room and into the elevator.
After watching the doors close Nate turned around, awkwardly meeting the stares of the two people sitting across from him, both apparently concerned with young Serena’s reaction. “Well, don’t look at me. I need some time to process all of this too. This is just way too weird.”
Blair caught up to her younger counterpart who was walking down the street.
“Blair! Stop!” She called ahead. At the sound of her voice the young Blair turned around and let out an annoyed grunt, continuing her walk but she did slow down until they were walking side por side.
“I know that this must be hard to hear, but I’m trying to explain it to you. You may think that this is most horrible thing to happen and believe me I thought that it was once, but I changed…and so will you,” the older girl tried to explain as she grabbed herself so that they were facing one another.
“Ok then. I guess I’ll let you explain. I mean since you are me it’s the least I could do,” Blair attempted to shrug off this whole situation, but couldn’t hide her intrigue.
“I guess I’ll start with the beginning then…” she trailed off trying to decide where to start. “Well I broke up with Nate when it got too hard to pretend that everything was perfect anymore. Then right afterward I went to Chuck and…” she looked meaningfully at the younger Blair, attempting to ease her into the news.
It took a minuto and then… “NO! OH MY GOD NO!!!!! Chuck Bass! How could I do that with Chuck Bass!! I feel violated just thinking about it! I mean what were you even thinking? And what, are you going to tell me that just like that I start dating Chuck Bass?”
“Well No! There was a lot mais to it then that. We did end up spending a few years chasing each other, until he finally said he loved me-“
“No way. Did you just say Chuck’s name and amor in the same sentence? I must be delusional or something because I’ll never see the day…” she trailed off.
“Well not many people believed it at first, but now look at us,” she stuck out her left hand to show a ring that caught the lights of the streetlights perfectly. “He proposed last week and I’ve just started planning the wedding,” pride and excitement was evident in every part of her voice.
“Wow. Just ummm……wow. And this ring is absolutely gorgeous, how could anyone even afford this?” Blair asked, normally not that concerned with price but this ring looked really expensive.
“Well he is the richest kid on the UES and is CEO of baixo Ind.,” noticing the other’s confused face she quickly mentioned. “Bart died, left it all to him in the will.”
“But now I feel bad because Chuck’s not really going to have any relatives there, because there’s no way we’re inviting Jack. And Cyrus and Roman both want to be a part of the ceremony since Daddy’s walking me down the aisle of course, and I’m afraid it’ll be too much to ask of Chuck to include them,” she rambled on, forgetting exactly who she was talking to.
“Ummmm… sorry to break up the dream wedding planning to…Chuck Bass,” she said his name with a mix of disgust and absolute disbelief. “But who’s Cyrus and Roman?”
The minuto the words left Blair’s mouth her older version froze, realizing exactly how much still had to be said. This was going to be a long night.
Chuck had just sat down in his limo and was about to grab some scotch when the older Chuck walked in and sat down seguinte to him, grabbing the glass and downing it.
“Let’s hear it,” the younger Chuck finally blurted out while grabbing another glass.
“Well, what do you want to know?”
After several minutos of silence he answered, “How? I mean, how did it happen?” he questioned, staring straight ahead trying to act like he didn’t care about the answer.
“Well, in a very short version. I took her virginity, then after two years of pain and humiliation I told her I loved her and now we’re engaged,” He said with a look of such pride on his face.
“Engaged?...To Blair Waldorf? How…is it?” To anybody else this would seem like one of Chuck’s normal smarmy comments, but the older Chuck understood. He was talking about all of it, being in love, dating, he just didn’t know how to ask.
“It’s amazing. Every single part of it. After all the pain, and trust me there was a lot…from you hurting her to her hurting you. It’s perfect, absolutely perfect, and no matter what happens I’m never going to lose her,” Chuck said his voice softening as he turned to see himself staring back, his face softened, hanging off of his every word in disbelief.
Right as younger Chuck was about to open his mouth to say something the limo stopped outside his building. Quickly he placed an indifferent, slightly skeptical mask on his face as he said, “Want to come up?” At the other Chuck’s nod they both headed outside and into the elevator.
Right before the elevator closed the younger man turned and said quickly, “This doesn’t mean that I believe you.”
