Chair Tales- S02E08- She Just Isn't That In To You!
Catching up at Yale.
It's the دن after the pre-engagement party.
Last night when Blair returned "home" (to Zane's house where she is still staying) she wasn't in the mood to talk and went straight to bed.
Serena had tried to contact Blair to find out why she left early but Blair hasn't replied to her messages یا calls.
It's early morning, Zane and Blair have had breakfast and are getting ready to leave for Yale.
Z: So, are آپ feeling better...(she doesnt respond) ummm...you were upset when آپ came ہوم last night.
B: Im fine....i just had a long night...shall we go?
Z: Yeah sure....you know we still need to talk.
B: About what?
Z: Well...the other night.
B: Ummm...we can talk another time....not right now. (she walks towards the door) lets go.
They leave for University.

At Yale. Blair is having lunch with Serena and Dan.
S: so are آپ planning on telling us why آپ left early last night?
B: Oh....im sorry about that...i was feeling sick.
S: Really? Was it the food?
B: No...it was.....Chuck!
S: (giggles) آپ guys are strange.
D: Beyond strange.
B: What do آپ mean?
S: Well...even when you're not together آپ drive each other crazy!
D: آپ cant live with him, but آپ cant live without him!
B: Thats not true! Im doing fine without him!
S: Really? B, آپ cant stop talking about him....when he's around you...the both of آپ cant stop taking shots at each other...its just like the old days....
D: Chuck making آپ mad...you insulting him....it is just like high school!
B: Thats not true! This time is different!
S: If آپ say so.....
B: I do! And it's kinda over between us anyway.
B: Yes....very over!
S: B, just promise me one thing?
S: When آپ do realise آپ want him back....just admit it and take him back....no games...no concealing your feelings....just be honest, for your own sake.
D: Exactly....we all know آپ two were practically made for each other.
B: Not anymore.
B: I have rehearsals.....i'll see آپ guys later.
She walks off, quite frustrated that they aren't taking her breakup seriously.
Rehearsals are taking place for the play. Blair joins up with the D.A.Y group to practice the play.
Zane approaches her.
Z: ارے babe, we're starting dress rehearsals....you'll have to go get into your costumes (he is already in his and spins around) what do آپ think of mine?
B: A bit 10th century! (she laughs)
Z: What! no way! this is meant to be modern! i think its hot!
B: (giggles) its not too bad. i'll go get ready.
Z: I've seen your outfit...its great, you're going to look gorgeous...(they smile at each other, Blair blushes).
She runs off to the dressing room to get ready. On her return Zane greets her with great pleasure.
Z: Wow...you look....hot! Smoking hot! (they laugh)
B: thanks...(plays with her dress) I remember once a few years ago....there was a masked ball when i was at high school...this dress is similar to the one i wore then....i still remember what Chuck کہا to me when he saw me...(she smiles to herself).
Z: Well i think آپ look amazing today (he moves towards her and is about to put his arm on her shoulder)
B: (turns away from him) Sometimes i wonder if he remembers things like that...
Z: Ummm...why dont we go through our lines?
B: I'll be back in a bit...i need to make a call.
Z: Who are آپ calling?
B: I just need some advice...i'll be back in a bit.
Z: Hey....you know آپ can talk to me right? Im pretty good with advice?
B: I just need to talk to someone who knows me better than i do...excuse me.
She walks off leaving Zane stranded. He felt rejected, he thought he was getting somewhere with her, but every time he thought he was close, the subject of Chuck would pop up...every time.
Blair walks off to a quieter area of the studio. She rings Serena.
B: ارے S?
S: B? Whats up...aren't آپ rehearsing?
B: Yeah, im about to....i was thinking about what آپ said....about me and Chuck.
S: What about it?
B: Do آپ think im doing the right thing?
S: B...only آپ can know that...i wasn't there when آپ guys argued and stuff....its your choice to make....but i will say this....if آپ truly love him...then آپ should do what آپ can to make it work.
B: Would آپ forgive Dan for cheating on you?
S: (sighs) probably not...or maybe eventually....but i would definitely hear his explanation...sometimes things happen and آپ just have to figure out what is most important to you...being together یا holding a grudge.
B: Thanks S, i knew you'd know what to say.
S: Hey...but also, آپ may just need some time to get yourself together...staying apart might just make him realise what he's missing out on....i could.....talk to him if آپ like?
B: Do آپ think that would help...?
S: I could try.

Later that day, Blair returns ہوم quite late. Zane is already ہوم and it seems he's drunk. he greets her and she finds his behaviour amusing although she soon becomes agitated and annoyed.
B: seriously Zane i think آپ need to go to bed.
Z: Come with me...(he puts his arms around her)
B: (giggles) Zane! Go upstairs!
Z: Only if آپ come with me sexy...(tries to kiss her)
B: Zane...(trying to get free of him) stop it...(she struggles to get free and he tries kissing her)
Z: Come on...you want this....lets have sex (tries to smother her and is holding her tightly)
B: Zane please! Your drunk....leave me alone! (trying to break free)

C: Hasn't she told you?
S: I want to hear your side.
C: She wanted a break. God knows what that means....but the last time i checked i was single.
S: It means, she needed time alone for a while. آپ guys haven't broken up...its just a holiday from each other.
C: No...i think it's pretty much a break up...she hates me, we're not talking, we're not together...its a break up.

C: (looks away)....what do آپ think?
S: I know آپ love her...

Back at Zane's house.
Blair has been struggling to get free of Zane who has a strong hold on her...he has been forcing himself on her, trying to kiss her and she has been screaming to get away from him.
B: Zane! Dont do this! Your drunk آپ need to calm down! Please just let go of me (in tears, she manages to get free of him and starts running backwards away from him, he is still coming towards her.
Z: Come on Babe...we've done it before...what's wrong!
B: Just leave me alone! Stay away from me!
Blair runs out of the house and Zane tries to go after her but gives up when he sees her run onto the road. He goes back inside and continues to drink.
* * * * * * *
At Serena's house.
C: Look...if she wanted me she knows where i am.
S: And would آپ take her back?
C: Would you? If آپ were me?
S: Of course.
C: What makes آپ think she still wants to be with me anyway...she told me she hates me.
C: At your party.
S: She doesn't hate you. Believe me i know.
C: I need to use your bathroom.
S: What? Oh...yeah..you know where it is.
Chuck walks off towards the washroom. Serena goes to fetch a drink. On her way back from the باورچی خانے, باورچی خانہ there is a knock at the door. Serena goes to answer it.
S: (after opening the door) Blair! What are آپ doing here?
B: (seems frantic) i....i didnt know where else to go...
S: Why what do آپ mean?
Just as Blair is about to answer, Chuck has returned from his trip to the شوچالی, واشروم and walks in on Serena and Blair.
C: (sarcastic sigh) Oh...i get it...is that why آپ called me here?
C: Is this a set up یا something? آپ invite me here pretending آپ wanted to have a دل to دل when all along آپ just wanted me to conveniently bump into her.
B: Whats going on?
C: Dont look so innocent...Serena, if i wanted to speak to her i could have managed it myself...i dont need آپ setting us up on a date.
S: No, i swear it's not what آپ think...i have no idea why she's here...B?
B: It doesn't matter...i'll leave..(turns to walk away)
S: No, B, stay...something's wrong? آپ were upset? What happened?
B: Nothing....it's fine...it doesn't matter..im sorry for interrupting آپ two.
S: B? آپ کہا آپ didnt know where else to go...
B: Serena...just let me go...(she turns to leave and Serena watches her go, then closes the door)
S: (turns to Chuck) Thanks a lot Chuck!
C: What was she doing here? Because it all seems a little convenient that she turns up the منٹ i turn my back.
S: I didnt set آپ guys up to meet here...i swear...it was just a coincidence! And she seemed scared and upset when i answered the door...thanks to آپ i dont know why! Something obviously happened to her otherwise she wouldn't have come and now i've had to turn her away!
C: آپ know how much of a drama queen she is...she probably found out that they were doing a remake of Breakfast at Tiffany's with Linsday Lohan.
S: Chuck! It's not funny! It could have been serious.
C: Look i've had enough for one night. Im off home.
S: Dont آپ wanna finish our conversation?
C: Not really....another time. (he walks towards the door and she opens it)
S: Hey...you know آپ can always come to me if آپ need to talk....in confidence.
S: Blair is my best friend but so are you.....you're like a brother to me and im always here for you...i'll never take sides آپ know...i want what's best for both of you....i always have.
C: (puts his hand on her shoulder) Thanks....i know آپ mean well....and i appreciate everything you've done for us....i really do...but sometimes situations can be beyond help...
S: Where there's a will there's a way.
C: (he smiles) Well i'll see آپ at the party...i should go now.
S: See آپ soon. (she hugs him and he hugs back, before leaving)

Blair had run off to a nearby bar. She had no where to go. She had been attacked سے طرف کی Zane! She couldn't believe it. She knew he was drunk so he wasn't thinking straight, but he should never have treated her like that. She knew she'd have to go back at one point and face him. They'd have to straighten things out...she knew he'd beg her to forgive him and she may have to in the end, but right now she had no where to go. She really didn't want to go back to Zane's, not while he was drunk. She had her own key so she thought she could try sneaking in late at night hoping that he may be asleep. but for the اگلے گھنٹہ یا so she just needed to be alone. She just needed some time to think. She finished her drink and left the bar, she walked in the darkness for ages before coming to a bench where she sat and called a taxi. She couldn't stay out all night, so she decided to go back to Zane's and sneak in, then she could just lock herself in her bedroom and face the موسیقی in the morning. END SCENE
Afraid to go "Home"?
