I'm back! Sorry it has taken me so long to update, but I had exams and I just couldn't find the time. But now I have a summer ahead of me… so be ready for a lot of Dair!
Hope you like this Chapter! :)
"This… us… it's just so weird, Humpfrey" Blair murmured while resting on Dan's chest.
"Tell me about it, Waldorf" replies him while caressing her cheek.
The pizza had been a good idea, a way of acting like nothing had changed. They ate while watching the movie and commenting every scene of it.
But everything had really changed.
Watching a movie was not as easy as it used to be, because all they could think about was kissing each other. But neither of them said a word or did anything. They didn't want to show how much they liked each other.
A Waldorf-Humpfrey friendship was hard to accept. A Waldorf-Humpfrey relationship was even harder. Not only for everyone else, also for them.
And Blair suddenly realized that.
"I shouldn't be here" she said standing up. "Chuck"
"I have to go"
"What are you saying?" Dan asked, not understanding the situation.
"That I'm living. And that this will never happen again. And you are telling no one" she said very serious.
"Is this some kind of a joke, Blair?"
"No, it is not. I like hanging out with you, watching movies, and talking with someone that reads something more than the Cosmo magazine. But I… I don't want to be more than friends with you. You can either accept that, or this is it".
Dan was completely in shock. How could a person change her mind so quickly? God, she was so complicated! He definitely didn't understand women.
"Blair, what the hell are you saying?"
"You heard me. I'm gonna go now. If you want to keep being friends with me, you know where to find me"
She gathered her things, put on her coat, and left the loft without saying another word.
Was it really happening? Was she really leaving like what just had happened meant "less than nothing" to him? Was she really crushing his heart? Yes, she was.
And it hurt so bad.
"And just like that she left?" asked Rufus incredulously.
"Yeah, she did. Just like that" replied Dan.
"I'm so glad I'm gay" replied Erik. "Women are complicated"
"Tell me about it" said Dan sadly.
Dan had called both his father and stepbrother to talk. Normally, he would just call one of them. That night, he needed them both.
"What is wrong with her? Why does she act like that? And more important… Why do I like her? She is just so… so…" He couldn´t find the words.
Not so long ago he could find thousands of bad words to describe her. But right now, in that moment, he could think of none. Not bad ones, anyways.
"Look son" started Rufus, "if I had quit the first time Lily told me to go to hell, and leave her alone, I wouldn't be here today married to her. Sometimes you just gotta fight for what you really want"
"That's very true" said Erik.
"She is just scared. She can't help it. But they say that we only run from the things that truly scare us. And she is really scared of what she is feeling"
"Man, I have known Blair since I was born. Believe me, she has never been nice. Never. But you have brought that good side of her. And that's new. She just has to get used to the idea" told Erik.
"So what are you saying? That I should keep hanging out with her? Like nothing happened?" Dan asked then.
"Better than that. You should just act like what happened was not important, that you are glad she left because you didn't want to hurt her telling her that you didn't really feel anything" said his dad.
"But she won't want me then!"
"Believe, she'll want what she can't have. All women are the same. If it's too easy to get, they get bored and go find something else"
"It's gonna be tough. Pretending that I don't care about her at all"
"Well, who said love was easy? And with Blair Waldorf, it's impossible"
When his dad and Erik left, he decided he should start as soon as possible. So he went to his room and grabbed his cellphone to send a text to Blair.
"Everything is ok but need to talk to you. Where can we meet?" Sent.
Now he had to wait for her answer.
He was going to do exactly what they had told him to do. Act like if everything was perfectly alright. Better than alright, she had saved him the trouble to have to tell her that he had felt nothing at all, but it was fun to be with her that way.
But, would she get mad? It didn't sound like him at all. He wasn't the one that went kissing every girl he felt like kissing like if it wasn't a big deal. That was more Chuck, or Nate. But they had all the girls they wanted. Maybe it was not such a bad idea after all.
The phone beeped.
"I'll stop by the loft tomorrow at 4"
Well, she was coming over.
The phone beeped again. Gossip girl blast.
"Spotted: two of our favorite Upper East Siders kissing at the door of the Empire. Does this mean you are ready to forgive, Blair? To forget, Queen B? Or that you just needed someone to kiss, Lonely B? You know you love me. XOXO, Gossip Girl"
Dan felt completely betrayed. Okay that she didn't want to be with him, but they had been kissing passionately a few hours ago!
"You better me right, dad, or might lose her forever" said Dan thinking out loud.
Hope you liked it! I know it is not what you expected, but if they get together so soon, it gets boring, doesn't it? Now he has to fight harder for her!
Sorry again for the waiting!
Review? Please? I really like to hear what you think… and I'm opened to suggestions! :)
