The Mess that is Chuck Bass- Chapter 11
The 표, 테이블 had gone quiet; nobody spoke for what seemed like a long time. Finally, Lily found her voice. “You want to take over 베이스 Industries?”
He nodded once. “Yes, I do. It’s my rightful place and it’s about time that I start doing something that I’m supposed to be.”
Lily looked him at with a sad expression on his face. “That’s very noble of 당신 Charles but 당신 don’t know anything about running the company. And 당신 are only seventeen years old. Don’t 당신 think that’s a little too young?”
He didn’t want this to get ugly but he was prepared to fight for the company in memory of his father. “Lily, I know that 당신 don’t know this but Blair told me what was said in my father’s will. He left me the company and I can do with it whatever I see fit.”
Everyone turned to Blair and he muttered in her ear, “Sorry.” She gave him a quick grin. “That’s right I did tell Chuck what was said in his father’s will. I mean, he needed to know how much Bart really did care about him.”
Nate tapped Chuck on the shoulder. “Don’t 당신 think you’re getting a little ahead of yourself here, man?”
“No I don’t, Nathaniel.” There was a sudden edge to his voice. Why did no one think he could do this? Had he really been that much of an asshole to everyone so that no one believed in him anymore? He knew that answer to that 질문 immediately, it was yes.
He sighed heavily. “Listen, I know that I haven’t been here in a while and 의해 that, I mean not here emotionally. But I feel better again and I know that I am up to the challenge of it. It’s what my father wanted and I don’t want to disappoint him anymore. Let me do this to the honor his memory.”
Blair leaned over and gave him a 키스 on the lips to show her support for his idea. He quickly returned her 키스 and looked over at Lily and anxiously awaited what she was going to say. “I know that’s what Bart wanted Charles, but 당신 wouldn’t want to take over and have the company fail. Would you? And I’m afraid that would happen.”
His confidence took a hit and he slumped down in his chair. Blair turned furious eyes on Lily. “How could 당신 say that? He wouldn’t make the company fail, if anything he would make it 더 많이 of a success then it already is. Chuck’s always been around 베이스 Industries since he was a child and I’m sure that Bart showed him some of the ropes. The rest he can learn. I’m actually hurt that 당신 would say that Lily, 당신 know that Chuck wants this to honor his father and I will make sure that he gets it.”
She gave him a gentle squeeze under the 표, 테이블 and he knew that he had done the right thing 의해 coming to his senses and admitting that he loved her. This is what he needed. Blair.
Lily had the chagrin to look ashamed. “I’m sorry that I offended 당신 Blair, it’s just that I want what is best for the company so that we can keep Bart’s memory alive.”
Blair and Chuck both turned towards her and gave her icy glares. “Chuck is what is best.” Blair told her again.
Lily took a deep breath before saying, “Okay, we can give it a trial run and see what happens.”
Blair was about to interrupt but Chuck placed his hand on her knee and that made her pause. He addressed everyone at the table. “I know that you’re all expecting me to fail, well everyone except Blair.” He shot a smile at her which she returned. “But, it’s not going to happen; I will do whatever I can to make a complete success out of it and I will.”
“I believe in 당신 Chuck and I think 당신 should take over the company. If it’s what Bart wanted then we should honor his final wishes.” Eric chimed in.
Chuck grinned at him gratefully. “Thanks little brother for that.” He leaned across the 표, 테이블 to ruffle Eric’s hair while he laughed. “I actually really missed 당신 while I wasn’t here.”
“Chuck.” Nate began. “I trust and believe in 당신 too and 당신 can do this. 당신 can make your father proud one last time 의해 doing this. And whenever 당신 need help with something don’t hesitate to ask me because I will always be willing to help you.”
Chuck felt himself starting to choke up. After everything he had done to certain people and they still had faith in him. He wasn’t going to screw up this time; he was going to show everyone that he was worth it and that he actually had the skill for this business.
Lily smiled at him but he did not return her smile. “Well Charles, it looks like I’m being outvoted here. I will call and set up some meetings with the board today and we can take it from there.”
The rest of the 브런치 passed smoothly and everyone got along. When they were about to leave, he confided his fears to Blair. “Do 당신 really think that I can do this, Blair?”
She wrapped her arms around him in a hug. “Of course 당신 can, you’re the great Chuck 베이스 and can do anything.” She laughed at this. “I know that you’re a little down on yourself right now because of everything that has happened these past few months but don’t be. This is your chance to start new and prove to everyone how capable 당신 are to do this job.”
He grinned down at her while she straightened his bowtie. “What did I do to ever deserve you?”
She pulled back to look into his face. “Hey, we both deserve each other. It’s just about time 당신 realized it, Bass. We’re perfect for each other.”
Blair pressed her lips against his and he molded her to his body. The 키스 started out slow and gentle, but as it was them it quickly turned into something 더 많이 passionate and hot. Just as he was about to slip his tongue into her mouth, he heard someone clear their throat behind them.
“Is this going to be all the time now? Am I going to find 당신 two always making out everywhere?” Serena asked, although she had a telltale smile on her face.
Blair blushed. “I’m sorry, S.”
“I’m not.” He told both of them. “We’ve been waiting for this for a long time, sis.”
Even though she hated his nickname for her, Serena’s smile didn’t vanish. “I know that.”
He leaned down to give Blair one 더 많이 quick 키스 but it turned hot again. He broke his mouth away from hers. “I’ll see 당신 later okay? I have to go meet with the board and try to convince them to place the company in my hands.”
Blair reached down to 키스 him one 더 많이 time. “You’ll do great.” He grinned back at her and left.
Serena smiled again. “I’m really happy for 당신 B; it looks like everything has turned around in your favor.”
Blair couldn’t help the huge, goofy grin that was still planted on her face. “Yeah, it has but let me tell 당신 that it wasn’t easy. When I first found him he wanted nothing to do with me but I convinced him otherwise. I’m just thrilled that I was able to go through to him, for a while I was afraid that I wasn’t going to be able too.”
Serena nodded, signifying that she understood. “I told 당신 that 당신 would be able too. Chuck has always loved you, Blair. I’ve always known that, but 당신 two are some damn stubborn. 당신 were the only two that didn’t.”
“You’re right about that Serena, but sometimes 당신 just need to take things at a certain pace. Chuck and I have finally got to the same place and that’s what we have been waiting for.”
Serena touched her gently on the arm. “Blair, do 당신 think it’s going to last? It’s not going to be like the time he left 당신 in Tuscany? I’m just a little worried about you.”
She was a tad ticked off that Serena would even suggest that but she knew that she couldn’t blame her because after all Chuck had done that to her before. “I know that he has done too me some many times but this time is different. I can feel it, Serena. Plus, last night he told me that he loved me and he’s never told anybody that before. Not even Bart, so I know that he really means it.”
“Good for 당신 B, all I ever wanted is for 당신 to be happy and I know that 당신 are now. Just make sure he treats 당신 right and enjoy it.”
Blair pulled her into a hug. “I will S, thanks for worrying about me but there really is no need too. We’re going to be fine. I will make sure of it this time.”
Nate walked over to them. “Blair, can I talk to 당신 for a minute.”
Serena gave her a 키스 on the cheek and left her, so she was alone with Nate. “What’s going on?”
He looked down at the floor before glancing at her face. “I just want to say that if 당신 또는 Chuck ever needs me, I’ll be there for the both of you. I consider both of 당신 my friends.”
His words made her smile. “Thanks Nate, I appreciate that and I consider 당신 one of the closet people in my life and of course a friend.”
“That’s the other thing that I wanted to talk to 당신 about. I’m sorry for wasting your time, Blair. I think we both knew when we were together that is was never going to work out; we were just scared to break it off because we had grown some accustomed to it. But, I realize now that 당신 and Chuck are perfect for each other. He desires 당신 like 당신 deserved to be and he will treat 당신 well. I wish 당신 both all of the best.”
She felt tears coming to her eyes. She knew what it must have cost him to admit that. “That means so much to me, Nate. I never wanted Chuck to lose your friendship for me. And while everything was a mess for a while, it’s all working out good now. And what 당신 and had was wonderful in a way, so I can never fully regret it. But, I do know with every fiber in my soul that Chuck is the man for me.”
He gathered her in a hug. “I know and I am okay with that now.”
Blair returned his hug. “You are going to make some woman very happy one day, Nate Archibald. Just please, don’t let it be that girl from the slums of Brooklyn. 당신 can do much better than that any 일 of the year.
She sat in her room waiting for Chuck to show up, so she could find out how everything had went with the board. She felt nervous for him, but she was being truthful when she had told him that he could do this. Blair knew that he could, it was in his blood.
Another half 시간 passed before he showed up looking extremely tired and weary. Chuck shrugged out of his 재킷, 자 켓 and unbuttoned the first few buttons of his 셔츠 before he collapsed on the 침대 다음 to her.
“Hey.” He said with a smirk before leaning down to capture her lips. He pressed her body down on the mattress and crawled in between her body and kissed her with the 불, 화재 he had felt burning all 일 long in his loins. She kissed him back hungrily but before too long she broke the kiss.
“Chuck.” She gasped. “Wait, 당신 have to stop.”
His lips moved down to the base of her neck and he planted hot kisses all over her. “Why?”
She pushed him away with all of the effort she had and he finally budged. She kissed him one 더 많이 time on the lips. “We can get to that later; I want to find out what happened at 베이스 Industries. Were 당신 planning on telling me?”
“Of course I was, but I thought maybe after would be the best time to talk about it.” He was staring at her breasts which were straining against the silk of her blouse. Chuck continued to leer at her.
He sighed dramatically. “Fine, it went better than I thought it was going too. The board is willing to give me a chance mainly because it’s what Bart wanted. And they do want to honor his wishes. It’s going to be on a trial basis, I have two weeks to come up with a presentation of how to make 베이스 Industries better and then they are going to decide what to do from there. If they like my ideas, I will be heading 베이스 Industries.”
She squealed with excitement and threw herself against him. “See? I told 당신 that 당신 could do it.”
He couldn’t help the smile that spread across his face. “I haven’t done anything yet Blair; I’m going to have to work my 나귀, 엉덩이 off to make sure that I come up with a pretty decent presentation.”
A smirk spread across his face. “Now, can we get back to what we were doing?”
A seductive smile came over Blair’s face. “By all means, I’ve been waiting for 당신 to come here all day.”
Those were the last words that were spoken because Chuck ran his mouth all over her body and she couldn’t form two cohesive words because of his talented tongue.
But her voice came back to her when he started to thrust into her repeatedly. She screamed his name over and over again while he pleasured her body and in return she did the same to him. Once they had collapsed from their lovemaking, they both fell asleep.
They actually fell asleep holding hands and it didn’t scare either one of them like it would have before. Because they both knew that it was right.
