Show: Gossip Girl
Summary: Yes, they were all playing in the game of love. That meant someone had to lose.
When You Feel
Summary: Those three little words meant everything to her. Now they could have everything.
AN: Here’s Chapter Two! So, it’s time for the Chuck/Blair action. Hopefully you’ll enjoy this one; it has lots of fluff as a reward for sticking through all the angst later on.
Disclaimer: Sadly, I don’t own Gossip Girl. Hopefully the powers that be will bestow it upon me someday.
Chapter Two – Promises, Promises
Where did it come from and where does it go?
If it were right in front of me, would I know?
(Love, love, love.)
“Season of Love” – Shiny Toy Guns
“I love you too.”
When he finally said it, It was like a stab in the gut. Those very few seconds as her lips curled up into a smile, and she finally pressed them against his.
And as he repeated those three words until she was satisfied, he finally felt at peace. The world had stopped spinning and he could live in this moment, one he wished would never end.
They were finally something, and honestly, there was something amazing in that.
Yet, he had to question everything. It all seemed surreal, as if he was dreaming. Like it could all disappear in one blink.
Is this really happening?
“Yes,” She whispers. He isn’t sure if he said that out loud or she just knew what he was thinking at that very moment.
All he can do is smile. He hasn’t smiled like this for a long time.
He’s left with her, staring into the void that is summer. They’re ready to dive into everything, discover what love is truly about. They’re ready to start believing in fairytales and stories with happy endings.
He kisses her shoulder and she giggles. He loves the sounds she makes, the way she can light up a room. The way she led him out the dark.
This summer was about new beginnings. It was about having high hopes for the future.
This summer was about them. And this time, he wasn’t going to screw that up.
She meant too much to him.
It’s the first comfortable silence he’s been in for a while. All he can hear is her small movements as she rests in his arms.
He whispers those three words in her ear again, and her eyes flutter open.
“I’m never going to get tired of hearing that.” She still has a smile on her face.
“I’m sorry for this year, Blair.” He gives her his formal apology. “I put you through a lot.”
She gives him a small kiss. “And I wouldn’t trade this past year for anything.”
He furrows his brow. “Why?”
“Because I wouldn’t be here with you.”
And that’s all he needs. He silently promises never to break her heart again.
They have very few words for each other. They’ve done quite a bit of talking over the past year, and now, there’s nothing left to talk about.
They’ll discuss summer plans and their relationship when it doesn’t feel like a dream anymore.
For now, they’ll both remain on their high, where nothing can touch them. They’ll stay safe for these few precious hours. There is no hurt. There is no pain.
There are only those ruby red lips and that devilish smirk.
All is right in the world.
“Can it just stay this way?” She whispers. “Can the real world just…disappear?”
He doesn’t answer but he wishes that it could.
“Promise me something.” She says.
“Promise…that you’ll never forget about me.”
He kisses her in response.
“Don’t worry, Waldorf. You aren’t that forgettable.”
She lets out a loud laugh as her lips press against his once again. He always loved her laugh.
