Chapter 1- No Place Like Home
Oh how the years went by. It seemed so so long ago. But in fact it was only eight years. How their lives had changed, The new people they had met. The lovers they'd had, some better than others. The moving, ہوم from home. But one دن fate would decide to bring them all back together to the place they used to call home.
_ _ _
Blair took one step out of the terminal building and the freezing winter breeze just came rushing towards her, but it didn't bother her. She was home. Winter in New York was always her favourite time of year.
After quickly getting into the warm limo and hastily driving away towards the city the memories came flooding back to Blair. But if she was truly honest they hadn't really ever gone away.
The first thought that came to mind was of Daniel Humphrey. Just as they drove over the Brooklyn bridge. She gazed through the tinted window thinking to herself. Where was he now? What had he done with his life? The last time she saw him was at graduation at Yale. She never thought Dan Humphrey would ever get into a place like Yale but to her surprise he did and even مزید surprisingly he didn't annoy her as much as she thought he would. He actually turned out to be a good friend and a trusted one.
She remembered all the things that had happened at Yale and when she had no one to turn too, No familiar faces. Dan was there. He was really a blessing, and even though she would never concede it, he was her friend.
Now every time she thought of Brooklyn she would think of Dan Humphrey.
As the limo drove closer to her old ہوم she realised they would have to take the route though 5th avenue, and that's when the smile on her face grew as she thought of Serena.
How was the party girl? Even though they were still in contact Blair hadn't seen Serena for two years, it doesn't seem that long but it took it's toll on Blair, Serena may of forgotten about her old best friend, but Blair hadn't forgot about her.
Blair picked up the copy of Vogue and browsed the magazine and then on page 77 was the exact reason she hadn't seen her best friend in so long.
Blair took a closer look at the مضمون titled,
“Around the world with Serena وین der Woodsen”.
It was all about her world modelling tour. It was an 8 page article, pictures and all. She looked so incredibly beautiful she hadn't aged one bit.
Blair continued to read.
“Serena will be ending her tour in New York City at Fashion Week.”
She thought if Serena was coming back to the city then they could catch up, یا maybe Serena wouldn't want that, she would be to busy with all her modelling دوستوں to take some time with Blair.
Blair told herself. She was over that jealousy. She didn't envy Serena anymore, she had no reason to be insecure. But it would be great to see Serena again, after all they had been living 3000 miles away from eachother, they were coast to coast apart.
And all the bad times they'd had together, how they'd help eachother out in any situation and how they'd keep each others secrets, that's what made Blair think she had the best friend in the world. And Blair thought to herself as they drove past the Marc Jacobs boutique, How much she missed Serena.
Her دل was beating faster and faster as she could almost see her old home, but first they had to drive past school, And that's when the real memories came back to her and how she used to be Queen B.
The limo stopped as the lights turned red.
Blair stopped for a سیکنڈ and stared through window at Constance and saw a group of five girls all with their cell phones in their hands. Blair could tell those were the مقبول kids. The Queen B's of Constance. One of the girls had long dark brown hair, wearing a گلابی bow headband and Blair saw herself in her,
She was the new Blair and Blair was a new woman.
Nothing like that mattered anymore, she was happy. For once she was happy, and her status didn't seem to matter.
The lights changed.
The limo began to اقدام again, straight past the Palace, and the memories she should have had didn't come to mind.
She seemed to of forgotten.
But then suddenly got the feeling that something was familiar, And yet she couldn't tell what it was. Until they took a left at 68th street.
The familiar feeling grew.
She felt that she should know what it was. What was around this corner? What was it that was waiting for her to recognize?
Thereupon just three blocks away from where it all began, the memories just came flooding back, مزید than she had expected. So little time and yet so many memories.
Then it came down to it.
One block away.
There it was.
Nothing special just a building, a joint. Blair didn't even like it in the first place, It wasn't even what she was 'into'. It was only the vulgar people. Not Blair.
But she couldn't help herself.
She sat up in her نشست and told the driver,
The man sitting beside her spoke.
“We're not there yet are we?”
“No, I just need to see something.”
She lightly kissed him on the cheek, reassurance that she wasn't going anywhere...far. She stepped out of the limo and closed the door behind her. She took one step onto the side walk and gazed up at the name sign.
It hadn't changed.
She read out and lightly whispered.
It was still here, And it was still called Victrola. He must still own it, and that's when Blair thought of Charles Bass.
How long had it been?
Five years since she had seen him. Since...That brief encounter that triggered all the events that followed. What if she hadn't of seen him that year? Would her life be as it was now?
No. She couldn't think of what ifs.
She gazed back at the limo, then back at Victrola.
The memory of the first time she was there came to mind, and she remembered the conversation like it was yesterday.
Chuck asked as her opened the door of the limo.
“I think we just broke up”
“I don't want to talk about it, I just want to escape that's what this place if for right?”
Then a passer سے طرف کی bumping into her forced her to leave the time she was in and get back to the real world.
But she was right, Victrola was the place to go for escape. That's what she thought of her time with Chuck.
It was escape.
Escape from being the Blair she wanted everyone to see, to being the Blair she just wanted him to see.
The man stepped out of the limo and joined her on the side walk.
“Oh I remember this place. It's still here”
“Lets go, I'm done here”
She mumbled and took a hold of his hand and got back into the limo. “I'm done”. Those words gave her the shivers. They were the words she had told Chuck.
مزید than once.
Then for all the journey Blair couldn't get the thought of Chuck out of her mind. The journey seemed a little bit like a deja vu. After all she was leaving Victrola. In a limo. With a man. But one thing was different. It wasn't Chuck in the limo with her.
She tried to shake off those thoughts. She shouldn't be thinking like that. She was happy.
Ten منٹ later they had arrived.
“So how does it feel to be home?”
The man asked.
No reply. Just a smile. But that smile spoke a thousand words. Joy, bliss, excitement. But mostly excitement. She was looking آگے to the future, to see her old friends. How everyone was.
But they could wait, it was time to see the old house.

As stressful as a دن with Chuck باس, گھنگھور seemed, A دن with Matthew Blake seemed even worse. Chuck had dreaded this دن he was all for doing good for the business but taking Matthew “jackass” Blake on a tour of New York wasn't his idea of a good day. The C.E.O of باس, گھنگھور industries shouldn't be taking losers like Blake out, but he knew if he wanted to get this multi-million dollar deal he would have to do what he had to do.
“Well I've got to say Chuck, Bart taught آپ well, This record of your کاروبار if very impressive”
Matthew کہا through the grit of his teeth. Like he had ever liked Bart.
Chuck grind and answered.
“Well I'd like to say that he did but everything I've learnt, I taught myself”.
He grind, like a sort of sarcastic “Yeah I believe that” grin, And Chuck saw this and he knew that's what all of them thought. He would never be able to live up to his father's name.
But he was going to prove them wrong.
In the اگلے few silent moments that followed Chuck thought of this and the what if came to his mind also.
What if he had continued on that track that he was on five years previously. Continued to be out of control? If what happened five years old hadn't of happened he wouldn't be where he was now, And he had one person to thank for that.
Blake was still talking but he wasn't paying any attention, His mind were on other things.
_ _ _
The باس, گھنگھور limo pulled up. Matthew and Chuck stepped out.
Just at that same moment Blair came walking out of the Waldorf household. She needed the air. She paused and saw the limo.
She looked confused.
Hadn't their limo gone already?
Then the two figures stepped out from behind the limo, the one that was unknown to Blair went inside the opposite building the other went to talk to the driver.
The limo then drove away and the one that seemed familiar turned around.
Blair nearly dropped down faint.
It was Chuck.
The shock transpired onto her face. She could not believe who she was seeing. After five years. She had seen him.
_ _ _
Chuck sent Matthew into the building. He was certainly not looking آگے to the afternoon ahead. He then tapped on the driver's window and told him,
“Be back in an hour, I'm about to have the most boring afternoon of my life”
The driver seemed to chuckle before finally driving off.
Chuck quickly turned.
She stood out from the crowd.
It was Blair.
The shock transpired onto his face. He could not believe who was seeing. After five years. He had seen her.
_ _ _
She waved to him. He smiled and rapidly walked across to her.
She mumbled to him.
He gazed back at her and put on the one genuine smile he had ever put on his face, and کہا back.
Blair hadn't been back on the Upper East Side for five years, things seemed so different, but in truth everything was, As she had left it. The same. Everything was the same.
