Chair Tales S02E24- Final Destination
...The following day.
Blair is in hospital, Serena is also there to visit Blair and see how Bella is. Serena has just told Blair about inaonyesha the paternity test to Chuck.
B: I cant believe wewe would do something like that! Without asking me first!
S: Im sorry Blair but i had to!
B: No! It's none of your business....that was personal information....you had no right to go through my things! It has nothing to do with you!
S: Nothing to do with me? Well im sorry for worrying about my best friend, im sorry for going out of my mind these past few days seeing wewe like this, im sorry for caring about you, im sorry for caring about Bella and im sorry for doing the right thing kwa telling Chuck the truth so that he can finally step up and take responsibility! Bella is his daughter whether wewe like it au not! He needs to know the truth!
B: (starts to cry, Serena puts her arm around her) well now he knows.
S: hujambo im sorry ok....i had to do it.
B: Im not angry with you...i can never be angry with you...you're the only one who's been there for me....always....i need wewe S....i keep thinking that im losing her...
S: You're not losing her....she'll be ok....and im not going anywhere either....im always going to be here.
Blair eventually stops crying. Serena continues to hold her.
B: What did he say....when wewe told him.
S: He didnt say anything...well i didnt exactly stay long enough...i handed him the envelope and left....he hasn't been in touch since.
B: Typical....he doesn't care.
S: Im sure we'll hear from him soon..you know how long it takes for him to make a move.
B: You've aliyopewa him concrete proof...what zaidi does he need...he should have been in touch with wewe kwa now...he doesn't care.
S: B, just trust me...i know that somewhere in that body of his, he has a heart. This is a 5 mwaka old girl we're talking about...he has to care.

Later on that day, Serena and Dan are at home. Serena receives a phone call.
S: (looking at her phone) Chuck, At last!
D: Answer it then.

S: (stands up) Chuck...hi....
S: So? I hope you're calling me to ask about your daughter.
C: My daughter.
S: Yes (she smiles) your daughter....your beautiful 5 mwaka old daughter...who needs wewe now zaidi than ever.
C: She....is beautiful. (he smiles)
S: Yes...well she as two good looking parents.
C: Are wewe with Blair?
C: Where is she....i want to speak to her.
S: Chuck...she's in....the hospital.
C: Why what's happened?
S: wewe should go there and find out for yourself.
C: Serena tell me.
S: No, i've done enough telling...you go and find out....it's time to take responsibility....i'll text wewe the ward details...
S: Hey....before wewe hang up. Please do the right thing.
C: I will.
S: Im proud of wewe Chuck....i knew you' come through in the end.

C: Ok, ill speak to wewe soon (they hang up)
* * * * * * * *
Later on, Chuck has arrived at the hospital, he is in his limo approaching the car park when he notices Blair walking to a taxi stand. He tells the driver to park up. He gets out of the limo and calls out to Blair.
C: Blair! wait! (he rushes over to her)
B: What do wewe want?
C: I need to talk to you.
B: What if i dont want to talk to you.
C: Please...just come with me...(he points to the limo) we can talk in private.
She follows him into the limo. She was exhausted and didnt have the energy to argue with him. There was no point holding any grudges...there were much zaidi important things in life. He let her in first and she closed the door once she was in. He was staring at her, she couldn't look at him so she waited for him to speak...
she turned to look at him, her look almost killed him, he could see the tears in her eyes, being in that limo was enough to make them both cry. It was as though all those memories of them together hit him all at once...his throat dried up and he almost choked. He was shaking. He only wanted to tell her that he was ready to take Bella as his daughter...but now that she was there, in front of him, he wanted so much more...
C: (eventually manages to cough his words out) Serena told me.......about Isabella.
B: As if wewe didnt already know Chuck.
C: I always thought it was his...i was so sure....
B: (looks at him in anger) i cant argue any zaidi Chuck...im too tired....i dont have the strength.
C: I dont want to argue....i want to fix things.......Look at us Blair....two Lost souls.....sometimes i wonder why i even wake up in the morning...why bother...it's not like i have a life worth living.
B: wewe think wewe have it bad!
C: I know...it probably cant compare to what you've gone through...having a baby, on your own...i know it was hard for you.
B: Hard is an understatement.
C: I cant change what happened...neither can you. We both made mistakes. Mistakes that led us here....nowhere. I thought i had nothing to live for Blair....im empty and im sick and tired of this loneliness....i cant live like he did....my father...i dont want his life...
B: This has got nothing to do with him...stop comparing yourself to him and expecting me to feel sorry for you...yes wewe had a crap childhood, your father never loved you...change the record Chuck...
C: (he watched her for a moment, her truth stinging him in the eyes, but he wouldn't let his tears expose his feelings) wewe might think it's not relevant...but it is to me....i guess wewe could never understand how i felt about him. And how he's made me the person i am today.
B: What's your point. i dont have time for you're poetry Chuck....just say what wewe need to say.
C: When i saw the paternity test i was in shock...it proved the one swali that had been looming over me for the past few years...the fact that i had met her and spoken to her already....it made things worse...i felt guilty for being in denial for so long....i burned the papers.
B: What! Why! I needed those!
C: For what...we dont need them....we dont need to prove it to any one.
B: (looks away from him) We? (sighs) what happened to "we"?
C: I dont know. But we're still here today? Fate has brought us back together again.
B: (looks at him as her tears finally escape her eyes) together?
C: We've been here so many times Blair...questioning if we can really make it work....but i dont know any other way. I dont know if i can keep living this empty life...without the one thing that can make me happy. Who am i Blair? I dont know any more.
B: What are wewe saying?
C: Im barely human without.....without my Blair. (he finally lifts his shaking hand and touches her face) Im not Chuck bass, besi Without you.
B: (starts to cry) I cant fight for us any zaidi Chuck..im not strong any more...i never was otherwise we wouldn't be here....like this...
C: It wont be a fight this time...i promise (Cups her face in his hands, she looks up at him still crying) dont Blair, i cant kubeba to see wewe cry...
B: I cant help it....im so Lost Chuck.
C: (he holds her in his arms) I thought i could get over wewe Blair....i cant...i never will....i need you....Blair (he lifts her head up and looks her right in the eyes) i....i still upendo wewe (she starts to cry again) I upendo wewe so much....(he holds her tightly in his arms as she cries) Im ready to be what wewe want me to be....im ready for anything now. (She lifts herself off him) Blair...we can try again.
B: You're saying your ready for anything....how can i be sure that this time will be different to the last?
C: It will be....i promise....dont wewe think we've learned enough from our past...to know never to let it get to this again....im 100% sure this time Blair...im going to make it work, no matter what. I upendo wewe Blair...i've never stopped loving you. Even when i left...i left because i loved wewe so much and couldn't take the fact that you....and that guy....i couldn't face wewe after that...and thinking that the baby was his...but it didnt make me stop loving you...i could never stop. I want wewe back Blair....i want wewe back for good. I want wewe to upendo me.
B: (she leans her forehead on his) All i've ever wanted was to be happy Chuck...being with wewe made me happy...but it broke my moyo too.
C: This time will be different.
Her face being so close to his, he could feel her breath...he saw the vulnerability in her eyes, she always made him go weak and today was no different. He moved closer to her and looked deep into her eyes, she was still Blair to him, the same Blair he had fallen in upendo with all those years ago, he had hungered her for so long and she was finally here with him now, after everything, she was here with him, he leant mbele and stroked his lips on to hers, he was gentle with her because she was his Angel and he could never hurt her again. She couldn't resist his lips as he began to kiss her softly, it had been so long...years since he'd touched her lips and he felt the rush from kissing her. He let go of her lips momentarily, they looked at each other for a moment before she closed her eyes and kissed him back. they kissed for a moment...his hands tightly holding onto her waist and hers wrapped around his neck...kissing him was different, he had a little facial hair and it scratched against her lips as she kissed him all over his face...it may have been a little different but she felt 17 again...in the back of his limo...making out...for a moment she felt young again...for a moment she forgot about everything else and embraced her lover...melting into his arms as he tried to pull her even zaidi closer to him. His tongue found it's way through it's old paths into and around her mouth, not leaving any part untouched, she breathed heavily in sync with the movement of his body rubbing against her's. It was impossible for her to ignore how he made her feel, even under such circumstances. She could feel his hands touching her in places only he would think of, the most sensitive areas of her body that only he knew would arouse her, it made her let go of his lips and she moved onto his neck, she wanted to return the favour to him, and he showed his satisfaction kwa breathing heavily and tugging on her hair whilst pulling her closer to him. Their breathing was so heavy it steamed up the windows, this was zaidi than just lust au love....it was hunger...they had been through so much in their lives, they had been apart for so long...finally coming together once zaidi and finding comfort in each others arms...it wasn't the actual kiss that was important right now...it was the simple fact that they were able to kiss...after everything they were still able to hold each other, touch each other and still able to upendo each other....she moved back up from his neck and bit on his lips begging them to open for her once zaidi and they did. She let her tongue in again and welcomed the warmth of his mouth, the taste of his mouth that she had missed so much, it made her jitter and sent chills through her body, this is the man that she loved, she belonged to him and they both knew it. She had forgotten what it was like to feel like this because she had blocked it all out, but now that she felt it once zaidi she had no idea how she had lived without it. He kissed her so passionately neither of them wanted it to end, he didnt want to let go of her, but he knew they had plenty to talk about...he loosened his grip on her and slowed down their kiss, he bit her bottom lip before letting go and looking into her eyes, she was still sitting on juu of him, on his thighs, facing him...he could still see the hurt in her eyes...
C: (he whispered to her, still trying to catch his breath)I upendo wewe baby.
B: (she tried to smile through her tears) I cant lose wewe again....i need you.
C: wewe wont lose me. Not this time...(he whispers) i'll chain myself to you. (he smiles)
B: (she leans her face on his, her nose stroking his) I ....love you.
C: (kisses her cheek) I missed you. I missed being with you...I missed being loved kwa you. Your the only one who ever did....im ready to do it all...move in with me...we'll get married just like you've always wanted and Bella....she's mine...ours (he smiles) i'll be the perfect father to her...I promise...
B: (looks away from him) It's too late...
C: No (holds onto her and turns her face towards his) it's not too late....im going to be a good father...ill make up for the 5 years she's missed...i'll make up for not being there...im ready to take her....
B: Chuck (starts to cry) It's too late....she's in there...(looks towards the hospital and then nods her head)
C: (looks concerned) Why what happened....why is she in...Blair...tell me what's wrong.
B: (crying) She's sick.....she's too sick....I dont know if she'll make it through another day.
C: Blair...you're not making sense...why wouldn't she make another day...what's wrong with her!
B: It's cancer....she has leukaemia...she's had it since she was a toddler....and now she has life threatening Pneumonia.....she's so sick....(she buries her head over Chuck's shoulder and cries)
C: No....it cant be true....
Chuck couldn't control his emotions any longer...he too begins to cry....wrapping his arms around Blair tighter....
C: (whilst still crying) Blair....it cant be....i....i didn't even get to....tell her...she doesn't even know who i am....this is all my fault..
B: (raises her head, still crying) She's always wanted to..... meet wewe Chuck....she's always wanted to..... know her daddy...
C: I want to see her.....now....i need to see her...(wipes his tears away)
B: She's sleeping....I only left her because i had to get something for her.
C: I dont care...i need to see her....Blair...im here now....for both of you...take me to her.
B: (stops crying and nods her head) Ok...
They get out of the car and rush to Bella's ward. They get to the door, which Blair opens. Chuck stops in his tracks, freezing when he looks through the door, seeing Bella in the kitanda hooked up on a life support machine...He couldn't move....his little girl was barely alive....it took him a while to finally take a step mbele and enter the room, behind Blair. Bella was awake.
B: Baby...your awake! (she runs to her and kisses her)
I: (mumbles something)
B: Ssshhh...dont speak baby....(she looks up at Chuck who is still kwa the door) Chuck (she whispers) come closer.
C: (nods his head) I cant.
I: Who's there....mummy?
B: (tears begin to roll down her cheeks) I have a surprise for wewe baby.
I: What? (she tries to songesha her head up but cries out in pain and falls back)
B: (gets worried) Shhh...dont move....are wewe ok...?
I: (starts coughing)
B: Bella....are wewe ok...? (waits for Bella to calm down, then looks to Chuck) Chuck...please...come here.
Chuck finally moves towards Blair...he looks at Bella, who can now see him, she smiles at him. He smiles back. He touches her hand, her little cold hand.
C: She's cold.
B: I know...it's the pneumonia.
C: They're Doctors, they must be able to fix this!?
B: Forget that......we need to tell her...(she looks to Bella) Bella....you remember Chuck dont you? Well there's something we haven't told you.....ummmm.....well.....me and Chuck have known each other for a long time....a long long time.....the reason you've never seen him until now is because.....he went away.....but now he's here.....and (becomes teary eyed again) do wewe want to know who is?
I: (whispers) Who?
B: He's....he's your daddy..(she forces a smile through her tears) Chuck is your daddy...
Isabella looks up at Chuck, he can tell she is shocked. He tries to smile at her and say something, but he cant get any words out...he didnt realise how hard this would be.
B: Chuck...say something to her...please.
C: (he bends down towards Bella) Hey....Bella....(he leans over to kiss her forehead).
I: you're my daddy?
C: (nods his head and smiles) Yeah...i am....you even have my name...Bass...that's my name...
I: Where were you?
C: I dont know...I...was lost...but im here now (holds her hand) and im not going to leave again...im going to be here for ever and nothing will happen to you...im going to make sure that the Doctors fix this ok...you're going to be ok....because you're my....daughter...so you'll be ok.
B: Bella...are wewe happy baby?
I: (she smiles) My wish came true mummy.
B: (she kisses her) I know...so did mine...
C: Bella..im sorry for not being around...I hope i can make it up to you.
I: (she smiles) Are wewe going to stay with mummy now?
C: (smiles and puts his hand on Blair's head) Yeah of course...im not going to leave either of you. We're a family now...we always will be.
I: I wanted to onyesha my daddy that I was brave.
C: (leans towards her again) Well I know that now...you're the bravest person ever...more brave than me au anyone else...and im proud of you...daddy will always be proud of you....and i'll always upendo you....(he kisses her forehead and holds onto her tiny hands) I upendo wewe Isabella.
I: I upendo wewe too....daddy.
Just then there is a knock on the door and it opens. Serena and Dan come in and see Chuck and Blair with Bella. Chuck is holding Bella's hand. Serena begins to cry at the sight of them.
S: Omg...Chuck...you're here....have you....told her?
Chuck nods his head to say yes, Serena walks towards them and kneels down to Blair who is still sitting on the chair in tears, they hug and both start to cry.
S: Im so happy for wewe B....I cant believe this siku is finally here.
B: I know...I just wish....it was under happier circumstances.
S: Hey...things will get better from here...I know it. (she stands up and looks at Bella) hujambo you...congratulations Bella...I hear wewe found your daddy?
I: (smiles) he found me.
S: Yeah...just like your wish...I bet this is the happiest siku of your life!...hey I have an idea...why dont I take a picha of wewe and daddy, and mummy so we can remember this special siku forever?
I: (smiles) Yeah...a photo!
B: Is it necessary...i mean right now?
S: B....we might need this photo...we should take our chances.
Serena takes out her phone and Chuck goes to one side of Bella's bed, with Blair on the other. The three of them huddle together and Serena takes a photo. She looks at it and smiles...
S: It's perfect...just how it should be...(she shows them the photo, including Bella) hujambo what do wewe think Bella...you're all smiling.
I: I upendo it! (she tries to songesha again but it hurts her) Oww...mummy...im tired.
D: hujambo Bella...you need to rest...Chuck, Blair, me and Serena will wait outside....you guy's should be alone. come on Serena.
S: Yeah...we'll be outside if wewe need us.
B: Thanks for coming.
D: hujambo (walks over to Chuck) wewe did good man...you did good.
Serena and Dan leave the room and wait outside. They can still see Chuck and Blair through the window of the room. Serena and Dan watch as Chuck puts his arm around Blair and kisses her whilst holding Bella's hand.
S: (is in tears) It's the most beautiful thing i've ever seen....Chuck, Blair and Bella...a family at last.
D: Yeah, it is...if only it could have happened sooner.
S: As long as they're happy now...Bella might not have long left so im just glad she got to spend some time with her dad.
D: hujambo she'll be fine (puts his arm around Serena) she'll get better.
S: Ive spent so long worrying about Blair these past few years, now I think i'll finally be able to sleep in peace, knowing that she has the one person she's always wanted.
D: Hey...(he smiles) Chuck and Blair, who would've guessed that after all these years we'd still be using those two names alongside each other!
S: Yeah, its incredible, its just fate...no matter what happens to Bella (looks at the photo) i know that everything will be ok, because they have each other. They can get through anything now. This time they'll be stronger. We're going to all be a family again.
D: (smiles and hugs her) im sure your right.
S: (she smiles back at him looking into his eyes, then whispers) they'll be ok.
That night, unfortunately, would be Bella's last night.
She breathed her last breath whilst sleeping, in her mothers arms and with her father kwa her side.
Blair experienced the worst moment in her life that night, losing her baby. Chuck Lost something he had only just got the chance to know...the guilt of missing out on over 5 years of her life would have overcome him had he not focused on being strong for Blair.
The important thing was that Bella was the one that had brought Chuck and Blair together. Her conception may have broken them up 5 years ago, but today she was their blessing, today she finally got to meet her father and got to hear him tell that he loved her and she finally got to see both her parents together and happy.
Truly, that would have been her only wish.
Bella may be gone, but the upendo that she created would go on for ever, and her memory would be the thing that would keep Chuck and Blair together forever. Never Forgotten. END SCENE
The end of the road...
GGirl_CB4BW Just for some closure, there is an Epilogue to Chair Tales Season 2, it should already be ilitumwa so please read it, its like a short episode just to give some closure.
This is my final fanfic. Not sure whether i have the energy to write any more!
I hope you've enjoyed kusoma all my fanfic just as much as i have enjoyed uandishi them! I really appreciate those of wewe who have taken your time to read my fanfic, and a special thank wewe to those of wewe who spare a dakika to comment, review and rate, it means a lot to me!
Btw, i do apologise for the sad ending and for killing off a child, i know that i didnt have to do that but it kind of just made sense while i was uandishi it because making her get better would have been too predictable... wewe cant always have a happy ending right? And it is just fiction!
Anyways, thanks again, now go read the Epilogue! It might cheer wewe up a little!
