Road to Happiness Part 13
“I’m not Bart’s son.”
Blair shook her head, looking perplexed. “What do آپ mean Chuck? What are آپ talking about?”
Chuck sighed, “Let me just tell آپ the whole truth, before your interrupt. It will be a lot easier for me.”
She nodded. “Okay, I’m sorry. Go ahead.”
He continued, “I’m not really Bart’s son, because my mother was raped. That’s how I was conceived.”
Blair gasped in shock.
“I’m not really a Bass. The thing I pride myself most on is being Chuck Bass, and it’s not even true. That’s why Bart hates me; he can hardly stand to look at me. He knows I’m just a bastard.”
She clutched at Chuck’s hand. “Don’t آپ ever call yourself that. That’s your big secret? How could آپ think that I would hate آپ for that?”
He laughed harshly. “That was nothing, just the tip of the iceberg. When I was a younger, I always wondered why my mother wasn’t very affectionate with me. She hardly ever looked at me, I guess it’s because I look exactly like my real father. When I was six, I heard my mother and Bart arguing one night. I crept downstairs, and I saw something that I will never forget.”
Chuck tried to calm his breathing down; he could feel the rage bubbling in his chest, ready to burst.
He sighed, “Once I was downstairs, I heard them arguing about me. My mother was saying, how she couldn’t stand me, that I looked too much like the rapist. That she was slowly starting to hate me, because I stood for what he had done to her. That’s when I heard Bart scream. The one sound, I will never forget. A gunshot. She shot herself right in front of me. Bart covered everything up, and told the press that she died in a plane crash. He never even bothered to ask me, how I was doing. I was a fucking six سال old, and I saw my mother blow out her brains.”
Chuck glanced at Blair, and saw tears streaming down her face. She was probably repulsed سے طرف کی him.
“That’s why it’s so hard to communicate my feelings to anyone, Blair. I always feel threatened. I try to mask everything inside.” He blew out a shaky breath.
Chuck had to tell her the worst part now. “I vowed when I got older, that I would get revenge on the man that was my father. When I was fifteen, I think I was fifteen, I tracked him down. Once I found him, I hired a contract killer. He was killed, and I didn’t feel sorry about it. I felt relieved. He deserved it after everything he had done to my family. I just couldn’t take the pain anymore, Blair.”
Chuck stopped talking, and waited for Blair to say something. He didn’t have to wait long.
Blair grabbed his face, which was ravaged سے طرف کی grief. “I am so sorry for you. I never imagined آپ would tell me something like this. Chuck, آپ may not be a باس, گھنگھور سے طرف کی blood, but you’re a باس, گھنگھور if I ever saw one. You’ve made yourself into Chuck Bass, and that counts for everything. It doesn’t matter who your father was. You’ve created everything for yourself, and that’s pretty special.”
Blair saw tears leaking out of the corners of Chuck’s eyes, and she wiped them away with her fingers. “I don’t hate you, like آپ think. If anything, I love آپ even more. You’re perfect to me, no matter what آپ did یا who آپ are. I love you, Chuck.”
His voice broke, “How can آپ love me? I had my own father killed.”
“He deserved it for what he’s done to you. If he wasn’t dead right now, I think I’d kill him myself, for all the pain he’s caused you.”
Chuck grabbed Blair, and held on to her. “I don’t know what I did to deserve you. I love you, Blair Waldorf.”
She wrapped her arms around Chuck, they fell into his bed, and she just held him for hours. They fell asleep that way.
3 months later
Blair and Serena were at their پسندیدہ coffee house, sipping lattes. Serena was now seven months pregnant, and had a big sparkler on her ring finger from Dan. Blair was slowly on the road to forgiving Serena, although she was still terribly hurt at what she had done.
“How are آپ feeling, S?”
Serena let out a chuckle. “Like a house, but in a good way. I’m so excited for the baby, and so is Dan.”
Blair grinned. “That’s great. I can’t wait to meet your baby, یا mine!” Blair waited for that piece of news to sink into Serena’s mind.
“You’re pregnant too?” Serena squealed.
“Yes, I just found out yesterday, when I went to my doctor. I haven’t told Chuck yet.”
“I’m so excited for you, B. Why haven’t آپ told him?”
Blair sighed dramatically, “I’m just so thrilled about the baby, but I don’t know how Chuck is going to react. He has some deep seated father issues.” Blair had never told her about Chuck’s secret that was just between the two of them.
“I’m sure he’ll be happy, B. You’re probably worrying for nothing. آپ should definitely tell him.”
“I will, but not tonight. Today’s the دن for Nate Archibald to be destroyed.” Blair said, excited for their meeting with Nate.
“What are آپ going to do to him?” Serena asked.
“You’ll find out soon enough, S. It will be all over Gossip Girl. I actually should get going Serena; we have a lot of stuff to do before we meet Nate.”
“Just be careful, Blair.”
Blair nodded, and then left. It was going to be an interesting night, to say the least.
“Are آپ ready to do this, Blair?” Chuck asked softly.
“More than ready, Chuck. Let’s go get him.” They shared a smile, and knocked on Nate’s front door.
Nate answered the door a few moments later. “What the fuck are آپ two doing here?”
Blair pasted a fake smile on her face. “We want to discuss a few things with you. We’re coming in.”
Blair and Chuck barged past him, and Nate followed them inside. “What’s this all about? I’m a busy man, and I don’t have time to waste.”
“Yeah, like we really want to waste time with you, Nate. We just need to get a few things straight.” She scoffed.
Chuck turned to her. “I’ll go first.”
Blair nodded, and motioned with her hand for him to continue.
Chuck turned his dark and angry eyes on Nate. “You son of a fucking bitch. I hate the ground آپ walk on.” He spat.
“Likewise, Chuck.” Nate replied.
Chuck continued, “I’ve told Blair everything that you’ve been hanging over my head. I should have done it years ago, because she understands. Blair knows why I had to do it.”
Nate looked disbelieving at Blair. “You understand why he had someone killed?”
Blair laughed bitterly at him. “Yes I do. He deserved it after everything he had done to Chuck. Also I forgive Chuck for it, because I love him. That’s something you’ll never understand, Archibald. Love makes everything different.”
Blair rubbed soothing circles on Chuck’s back, and he gripped her waist tightly.
Nate laughed harshly. “I don’t believe this shit. This is Chuck fucking Bass, we’re talking about. He’ll get tired of آپ eventually Blair, and then he’ll discard you. That’s what Chuck does.”
Chuck pushed Nate until his back was against the opposite wall. “Listen to me, Nathaniel. I love Blair, she’s all that matters to me. So don’t ever tell me that I’m going to throw her away. She’s my life, and it’s going to stay that way.”
Nate suddenly looked confused. “You really do love her, don’t you? I always thought it was a game to you, I never thought آپ were serious about Blair.”
Chuck didn’t even answer him, but Blair did. “You don’t understand Nate, because آپ never cared about me. That’s the difference, Chuck loves me. Now that I think of it, I don’t think I ever loved you, Nate. آپ were just a distraction.”
“Sure, Blair. What about when we had sex? آپ sure loved me and my cock then.” Nate کہا viciously.
Chuck’s face contorted with anger, and he raised his fist to مککا, عجیب الخلقت Nate. Blair stalled him.
“No, Chuck. Don’t let him win, he’s just trying to get to you.” He shook his head, and lowered his fist. Blair smiled, and kissed him on the cheek, before turning back to Nate.
“How many times did we have sex, Nate? Five. That’s it. We stopped after awhile, because آپ could never please me.”
She slipped her engagement ring off, and handed it back to Nate. “Take this back, because I sure as hell don’t want it. I despise آپ for what’ve آپ done, and I don’t want anything to do with you.”
Nate shook his head back and forth. “You’re really not going to marry me? What about all the status that comes with being my wife? Are آپ sure, you’re ready to give all that up?”
Blair snickered. “Yes, I’m sure. I would give everything and anything up for Chuck. I’d rather live in the سٹریٹ, گلی in a box with Chuck, than be your wife. At least I know, that I would be happy.”
“She trading your ring for something better, Nathaniel.” Chuck کہا pompously.
“What’s that, Bass?”
“For this.” Chuck got down on his knee, and withdrew a Tiffany’s box from inside his jacket.
“Blair, would آپ do me the honor of being my wife?” He opened the box, and there nestled inside was a beautiful solitare diamond.
Blair was in shock, and started crying. “Of course, I will. I love آپ so much, Chuck.”
She threw her arms around Chuck, and kissed him, right in front of Nate. Chuck grabbed Blair’s hand, and slid the ring on. It was a perfect fit, as they were for each other.
Chuck felt his own eyes misting up. “We were destined for this, Waldorf. We’re Blair and Chuck, and we complete each other. There’s not one, without the other.”
Blair was speechless, so she nodded, and she felt like the happiest woman in the world. Nate just stood there, looking at them moodily.
“I love you, Chuck.”
I love آپ too, Blair. مزید than آپ will ever know.”
Chuck turned back to talk to Nate, but held Blair’s hand. “Nathaniel, we have something else to get too. The main reason for our visit. We know what you’re doing.”
“What did I do now?”
“You’re stealing money from Blair’s mothers company. There’s no way in hell you’re going to get away with it.”
Nate let out a shaky breath. “What the fuck are آپ going to do about it? I’m not going to stop. The least آپ could do if Blair’s not going to marry me, is let me continue to steal from Eleanor. It’s only fair. Don’t آپ agree?”
Blair and Chuck shared a secret smile. “Got you, Archibald.” Blair whispered.
She then reached into her purse, and pulled out a tape recorder, which had just sealed his fate. Nate lunged for it, but Blair quickly put it away.
That’s when Chuck bellowed, “Come on guys, we’ve got him.”
The FBI stormed in, and Nate’s face fell. Blair handed the tape recorder off to one of them. They started to handcuff him, But Nate thrashed.
“You fucking bastards! آپ won’t get away with this.”
Chuck let out a bark, “It looks like آپ sure won’t be getting away with it. I hope آپ enjoy prison, Nathaniel. It’s where آپ belong.”
He then walked over to Nate, and kneed him in the balls. Nate hollered, and grabbed his manhood.
“That’s just a little taste of the payback آپ deserve. Take him away.”
The FBI pulled him out, while he screamed the whole time.
He looked at Blair. “That’s what we’ve been waiting for, and I’ve got to admit it felt great.”
Blair smirked. “Yeah it did, but I’ve got a little secret to tell you.”
“What is it?”
“I’m a little nervous, Chuck. I hope آپ like what I’m about to tell you.”
“I’m sure, I will. Go on.”
Blair breathed some air into her very dry lungs. “I’m pregnant.”
