Walking down fifth avenue reminded Blair of those olden days, the days where she and Serena would spend hours going in and out of designer boutiques and now she was going to see her old BFF after two years. It didn't seem that long not seeing Serena in that long was hard. She had no real 프렌즈 and defiantly no one who could compete with Serena well maybe Dan which was something she never thought she'd think. But Dan had really become one of her best 프렌즈 and she was a happy about that. But there was so many things Serena had missed, did she know about Dan and Katie? Blair needed to inform her about her engagement, and to who she was engaged too.
Just as she was arriving at the café on 5th avenue she was very nervous about seeing Serena again but she shouldn't be really this was her best friend but though everything that had happened over the past eight years did a supermodel like Serena 봉고차, 반 der Woodsen need someone like Blair Waldorf?
As she ordered her coffee she saw a flash in the window and as she gazed up from looking at the menu there was a hoard of paparazzi crowding around one very beautiful blonde was just pushed her way into the café leaving the paparazzi outside in the cold. From the 초 that Serena saw Blair that quirky smile of hers appeared beaming on her face.
“Oh my God, Blair...”
Blair placed her coffee down and stood. Frozen.
Serena ran over to Blair and hugged her. The best 프렌즈 were finally reunited.
“Oh my God it's been so long”
Blair smiled and replied. “Too long”.
Later after they had gotten over the shock of seeing eachother again they got down to old times. They got chatting just like they used to.
She was honestly shocked. It actually shocked Blair to know that Serena had no idea.
“You didn't know”
“No, well we haven't been in contact...”
She paused for a while wondering whether she should ask the 다음 질문 she tried to seem uninterested but Blair could tell she was dying to know.
“So have 당신 met her?”
Blair put her coffee down on the 표, 테이블 and began to explain the wonder that was Katie.
“Yeah and really Serena he could not of done any better. Katie's lovely”
“Katie? Yeah she sounds nice”
“Not like it matters right? I read 당신 were spotted with Kevin Peters and Michael Moore within two weeks of eachother”
“No, completely untrue”
“Well it's not like 당신 couldn't get them is it, I mean look at 당신 and I haven't told 당신 yet but 당신 really look gorgeous 당신 haven't aged one bit”
She was easily embarrassed and gave out a small quirky smile.
“Oh thank 당신 Blair, 당신 look so beautiful too”
Blair smiled back and was just about to tell Serena about her news but Serena did that for her.
“So anything else I've missed?”
The biggest smile possible was growing on Blair's face. She was so excited to tell her about the biggest thing that had ever happened to her.
“Yeah I kind of have some news...I'm getting married”
Serena nearly chocked on her coffee she was in so much shock.
“You're getting married?! Why didn't 당신 tell me?”
“Who is it? Chuck?”
She remained silent for a 초 and thought about that idea. Marrying Chuck. That would be achieving the impossible. But why had Serena said that? Her instant thought was of Chuck and Blair not Nate and Blair. That should of spoken volumes to Blair. But it didn't.
“God no! It's just...It's, it's Nate”
If Serena was in shock before then he was having a 심장 attack now.
“Nate?! As in Nate Archibald...”
She took another sip of her coffee and nodded. Serena was in total disbelief.
“Okay I have a 사진 shoot this afternoon but I'm going to 취소하기 that, because this is going to take hours to explain”
Blair giggled and was looking 앞으로 to the coming afternoon having a good catch up with her best friend was just what Blair needed to take her mind off things.

Just as Blair and Serena caught up on old times another old face made their way into their convocation. He had entered the café and was at the paying counter.
“So where are you...Oh my God Chuck!”
Serena was sure hoping that it was Chuck 베이스 또는 she had just shouted at someone totally unknown across the café. Luckily for Miss 봉고차, 반 der Woodsen it was the Chuck she used to call her step brother.
“Serena!? You're back in town”
He suddenly remembered what he had read about Serena's modelling show coming to Manhattan.
“Yeah. Oh it's great to see you”
She hugged him and kissed him on the cheek.
“You too Serena. 당신 look great”
“Thanks so do you...” She said fixing up his tie. “Look at 당신 with your Prada suit and your little brief case...” she said grinning over at Blair one 초 and back at Chuck the next.
“Hey why don't 당신 we all have 공식 만찬, 저녁 식사 tonight?”
“Oh I...” He guessed that it was at Blair's apartment and he didn't want to put any pressure on her 또는 make her feel uncomfortable.
“Oh sorry Blair is there enough room?”
“No it's fine. 당신 were coming anyway so sure 당신 come if 당신 want Chuck”. She asked.
“Or are 당신 to much of a hot shot business man for your old 프렌즈 now?”
Serena joked with him.
“No. Sure I'll come”
Serena smiled. His phone rang, a message from work.
“Ah work, I've got to go. I'll see 당신 tonight”
He got up and left with his brief case both women still smiling as he left, a few 분 later just as Blair and Serena were finishing their coffees Blair thought Serena should meet Nate again.
“So 당신 want to come back see the apartment? Nate will be there I'm sure he'd 사랑 to see 당신 again.”
“I'd 사랑 to”
Blair smiled and took a hold of Serena's hand and began leading her towards her new home.
As they returned Nate was busy checking over his current movie project. To be perfectly honest he was wanting something to interrupt this certainly wasn't going to be winning Oscars any time soon.“Honey I'm back and I've got a visitor”
He closed the laptop that was on his lap and swivelled around in his chair as he did his jaw dropped at the sight of Serena again.
She smiled and ran over and greeted him with a hug.
“Oh my God. 당신 haven't changed a bit Nate”
She said giggling and smiling at him broadly.
“I can honestly say neither have you”
Blair laughed. It was lovely seeing them together again. It was just lovely seeing all of her old 프렌즈 back together again, The non-judging breakfast club well minus one very important member but 의해 tonight they would all be back together. It would feel like high school again.
Nate was in the 부엌, 주방 making some tea. They had a lot to catch up on.
Crash. Oh dear. Nate really wasn't handy with his hands, well in the 부엌, 주방 anyway. He'd dropped the priceless 차 cup. Just as Blair heard this noise her closed her eyes shut so tight.
“Please tell me that's not the china?”
No reply. Serena cringed.
“Oh my God Nate!”
Blair finally opened her eyes and sighed. Serena thought she should save Blair from having a mental meltdown.
“Sit down Blair I'll go help him”
“Oh no you...”
Serena pushed her back to her seat.
“I'll go just inhale, exhale okay..”
Serena rushed into the 부엌, 주방 to give Nate a helping hand. He was trying to fix the broken cup. Without any luck.
“Does she know I broke it”
“I think so”
Both laughed but not enough for Blair to hear. Serena helped Nate with the broken crockery. Nate laughed.
“Does this remind 당신 of something?”
“Oh God remember that how long 이전 was that?”
“God. Oh I forgot to call 당신 then about Vanessa. 당신 broke up with her then?”
“Yeah. I had to after what happened”
A smiled exchanged between them before Blair entered not knowing what was transpiring between them.
“It's okay. We can buy new ones”

The 시간 that Blair was dreading quickly came along she wasn't dreading all of it. Just the part where she would have to greet Chuck and bring him up to her new 집 and he would have to shake hands with Nate and be civil.
Gosh this would be a long night.
Serena had already arrived and was catching up with Nate, Blair was hoping they would end the conversation soon so that Nate could answer the door to their 다음 guest... But no such luck, And he didn't offer to get the door.
There he was with a big bunch of lilies and a bottle of vintage wine for his hosts.
He handed her the flowers. She put the greatfull look on her face.
“Thank you...Come in”
He wondered passed her and entered the apartment and walked over to Nate and Serena greeting them in a very polite manner. Blair wasn't expecting him to have any manners.
The evening was going swiftly. Everyone was having fun chatting about old times. It was at the end of the meal Blair had to go into the 부엌, 주방 to get her award winning pie, well maybe not award winning but it was certainly worthy of awards.
Chuck watched her enter the 부엌, 주방 and if he was going to talk to her alone in the evening now was his opportunity.
“I'll go give her a hand”
Chuck offered and entered into the 부엌, 주방 where Blair was busy preparing to serve 사과, 애플 pie. He came up from behind her.
“You need any help?”
She turned around quickly. Shock.
“God 당신 nearly gave me a 심장 attack... What do 당신 want?”
“Offering 당신 help”
Being near him made her all nervous and uncomfortable. She thought if she was left alone with him for too long something might happen. But she had to control herself her fiancé was in the 다음 room. But she didn't need to control herself. She didn't want him...
A brash reply. “I can cut a pie Chuck”
“I know. I'm just offering”. Gazing back into the other room Chuck could see Nate wasn't wondering about what was happening in the 부엌, 주방 he was quiet happy laughing and joking with Serena. He slowly closed the door.
“So we haven't had a chance to catch up”
She looked surprised, “Oh I um, forgot. But we're catching up now aren't we?”
“Yeah I guess we are but I meant me and you”
“Oh Chuck...I hope this isn't going where I think it's going”
Of course it was. It could go nowhere else. Chuck knew the sooner the better he had to tell Blair how he was feeling and he had to know if she felt the same.
“Where do 당신 want it to go?”
She snapped and threw the cutting 칼, 나이프 down on the counter and turned to his direction.
“But 당신 came back”
He was so full of hope that she would have come to her senses and that now they were alone she would tell him how she really felt.
“Yeah but not for you”
As the song goes. Bang. Bang. 당신 shot me down.
“...I was dreading coming back here. Seeing 당신 again. I was this close to telling Nate no, but I 사랑 him enough to do this for him”
“If 당신 loved Nate 당신 wouldn't of come back”
“How do 당신 work that out?”
“If 당신 saw me 당신 know what would happen, so why did 당신 come back? If 당신 loved Nate that much 당신 would have told him no”
She tried to reply but she was left speechless. Until she uttered the words,
“All 당신 need to know is that I'm marrying him. I 사랑 him, 더 많이 than anything 또는 anyone in the entire world including you. I didn't think I could 사랑 anyone 더 많이 than I loved 당신 and Nate of all people but I do”
She really did 사랑 Nate. She wasn't kidding herself
“There's nothing I can do is there?”
She shook her head and carried the pie out to her fiancé and her best friend leaving Chuck wondering was there any point to this pursuit of the Waldorf? TO BE CONTINUED... A/N: Okay so I know I made out there that Blair does still care about Chuck but she truly doesn't now and she does 사랑 Nate and so I know I hinted something about Serena and Nate in the past but you'll have to wait to find out what happened there. So I hope 당신 all liked it. Really adore comments. Thank you. and to everyone who hasn't seen it check out my 'A Million 사랑 Songs Later' video link
