Chapter 11: Lost love
The clock chimed midnight Blair had fallen asleep on the kitanda with a box of tissues and a picha of the ex-happy couple that would never be again. Blair was feeling lower than she had ever felt before she hadn't felt like this even with Chuck.
This feeling was worse.
She had Lost the upendo of her life. Again.
But this time it was worse because it shouldn't be happening, Chuck and Blair were the past and it was one last time, it was nothing.
Nate shouldn't even be uigizaji this angry. They weren't even together. He was overeating to the news. It shouldn't bother him like this. She thought she had nothing to apologize for that was her life then and Nate should not be putting her in this position, he should not be making her feel this way. He should of just laughed about it, thought it was just water under the bridge. But no nothing like that. For the moment she would just have to wait for him to make the first move, if he ever would that is.
Just as the clock chimed for the twelfth time Blair's eyes widened and opened. She thought Nate was back but no she was still alone. At a time like this she needed her Marafiki around. She needed Serena.
But it was midnight Serena would probably be a party au something like that but this time Blair needed Serena like never before she had no one else to turn too.
She picked up her phone and began dialling.
“Blair? That you?”
“Yeah are wewe busy right now?”
“I mean if you're at some wild party au something it doesn't matter wewe stay...”
“Blair I'm at nyumbani in kitanda watching Desperate Housewives that's as wild as I get. What is it?”
The tears began to fall down Blair's cheeks and Serena knew that her friend needed her. “B? What is it?”
“I just really need someone right now and you're my best friend. Can I come over?”
“Of course wewe can just tell me what's happened”
Blair decided to wait to tell Serena about what had happened that evening. She packed an overnight bag, she thought after explaining to Serena her news she wouldn't be going home.
Blair made her way to the elevator even those few steps brought tears to her eyes. She remembered that night she and Nate had spent with Dan and Katie and she was so tipsy Nate had to carry her in a utoto up to the apartment. It wasn't all clear but she remembered he had alisema something to her when he lay her to sleep on the bed, if only she could remember what he had said.

Two Months earlier.
That was the last time Blair was having that much wine. She really could not handle her drink at all. She was a hopeless drunk. But at least she was his hopeless drunk.
After she had jumped into his arms on out in the mitaani, mtaa and had whispered to him the three magic words, “I upendo wewe Nate”. He could not help but count his blessings.
“I upendo wewe Blair zaidi than you'll ever know. Can wewe hear me?”
“Mm Hmm of course I can”
He just smiled down at her he placed his palm on her beautiful, perfect face just as he placed a blanket on her, just as he did he noticed what mkufu she had chosen to wear that evening. It was the Erickson Beamon Necklace.
Nate hadn't really thought about Nate for some time, a mwaka zamani on Blair's birthday was the time he thought about Chuck bass, besi and not kwa choice kwa force.
If Chuck hadn't of sent that gift all of Nate's insecurities would have vanished.
Blair had almost defiantly fallen asleep kwa now. Nate was still sitting beside her gazing down at the necklace.
“I thought I'd Lost wewe wewe know, I know that wewe didn't want to come back and I know why. Chuck. wewe loved him right, I know wewe did and all I can do is hope that wewe don't anymore because I couldn't take losing wewe again to him, And I hope if wewe ever find out what I did you'll understand I only did it because I upendo wewe and I didn't want wewe to fall for him again”
The emotion was flowing down his cheek. He was always able to keep a hold of his emotions but tonight something had triggered him to let them all out.
“I upendo wewe my beautiful Blair always have, always will”
Nate alisema kissing her goodnight on the forehead.
For now she was his sleeping beauty until she woke up and she would be the devil herself she was always the same with a hangover.

If only Blair could remember.
She finally arrived at Serena's apartment. On the journey there she was on the uneasy side travelling in a yellow cab at midnight through New York City, there were safer things to do but it could be worse she could of taken the subway.
As soon as Blair arrived and Serena greeted her at the door. Blair fell down to the floor in tears as Serena held around her friend and brought her into the apartment.
After hours of talking and crying and cheering up, things still weren't getting any better.
“Serena what am I going to do? Nate is so mad at me”
“Well I get where he's coming from but come on he wasn't even with wewe then”
Serena alisema pouring each of them a cup of coffee, the needed something to keep them awake.
“That's what I alisema and he just got madder”
Serena sighed speechless. “I don't know what to do”
That is what summed it up for Blair she didn't know what to do. It was all taking over. If Nate wouldn't forgive her, what was she to do with her life. But after that thought placed itself in her mind she pushed it straight out again she couldn't think that way. She would have to remain positive and think of the future the good times they were still to have.

The inayofuata morning Blair had returned nyumbani and Serena tracked down Nathaniel Archibald. After hours of searching around the city she finally got some luck and discovered he was at the Marriott Times Square.
Serena banged on the door. She shouted out to him but no response. Finally after Serena had spent the inayofuata ten dakika imba outside the door he finally gave in and let her in. Any zaidi from Serena imba and it would have brought the hotel down.
“What the hell is wrong with you?”
She yelled pushing her way past him and taking the glass of whiskey from him as she entered the room.
“Serena. Blair send you?”
“Yes, I know how wewe feel Nate but don't wewe think you're overreacting a little”
“No. She cheated on him and what's to stop her doing it again”
“The fact that she loves you”
“She did upendo Mark what does that tell you?”
He alisema taking the drink back off Serena.
“Oh my God get over it okay. Yes Chuck and Blair happened. She loved him, yes. But she loves you. Not him”
He looked like a broken man. Serena knew it was going to take a while to get these two back together.
At exactly the same time just across town at Blair's apartment she was getting a visitor too, but not the one she wanted.
“What the hell do wewe want?”
“Serena told me what happened”
He alisema pushing his way into the apartment without even asking. Blair rolled her eyes and shut the door behind him.
She was confused, did Serena want to make things worse between her and Nate kwa sending Chuck around?
“Because she thought I should know what happened”
He alisema taking the half empty bottle of wine off the meza, jedwali and placing it in the trash. He didn't want her drinking anymore. She might do herself some serious harm.
“Well it's nothing to do with you”
“That's hardly true is it? It's half my fault”
“No! It's all your fault”
It wasn't true. Blair didn't know what she was saying she knew it was all her fault. Chuck was just Chuck, her one true upendo once upon a time but not anymore and it was unfair of her to blame him.
“Oh that's taking it a little far Blair especially when your the one who found me all those years ago. I didn't come looking for you”
“Because I was trying to help you, what happened between us just happened. It was nothing. It meant nothing and now because of that I've Lost him”
That statement was true...Now. It wasn't at that time it wasn't true, that night was meaningful.
“I'm sorry. I really am”
Blair sat down on the kitanda placing her palms on her face trying to hold back the tears, Chuck sat beside her and took on of her hands and held onto it tightly.
“Yeah right. You've been telling me to put it off so go on pop the champagne you've got your wish. Nate hates me now I can be unhappy forever”
“I don't want wewe to be unhappy”
Blair pulled away from him and stood up.
“Of course wewe do. Nothing gives wewe zaidi pleasure”
“That's so untrue. Nothing gives me zaidi pleasure than to see wewe happy”
He tittered. He thought if she believed that then she obviously didn't know him at all.
“Then why have wewe been trying to stop me getting married?”
He paused for a second. Chuck needed to think over his answer.
“Because I know you're happy with Nate but I can't help but think wewe would be happier with... someone else”
“Like with who? You? Yeah right. We'd end up killing eachother Chuck”
“Maybe. But at least we'd upendo eachother”
Both stood silent for a few dakika until Blair spoke up.
“Nate loves me”
Then Chuck spoke the truth that he and Blair knew was the pure truth.
“I'd upendo wewe for who wewe are, not something your not”
Just as the last word left his lips and Blair was about to answer him Serena barged through the door.
“Blair I just got...What are wewe doing here?”
Serena alisema with that famous confused look on her face.
“I just wanted to see how Blair was doing”
Serena responded still confused to why Chuck was there.
“Anyway how did he find out?”
Blair turned to him and alisema with a little smirk.
Chuck laughed as if he should of known if anyone was going to put their foot in it, it would have been Dan.
“Dan covered for me in Yale. Mark knew I'd cheated and if he knew it was wewe he would have half killed wewe and Dan knew what I'd done so he alisema I was with him”
“He did what?”
Serena shouted out not being able to hold back her shock. Dan and Blair had never been Marafiki but what he had done for her was the nicest thing ever. Serena was so glad that Dan and Blair were finally friends.
“Yeah, and wewe wonder why I consider him one of my best friends?”
“Well not anymore I don't. Wow I never knew he had it in him”
“Yeah he's pretty great”
“See I told wewe he was”
Serena smiled quiet pleased with herself to say that she was always right. She fled to another room in the apartment to get a signal to call Nate.
“I think I better go. So you're okay aren't wewe Blair?”
She couldn't help but smile at his concern over her well being.
“As fine as I can be. Thank wewe for caring”
Those were his last words before he left the apartment. Blair's smile grew even bigger it meant the world to her to know that he cared like that.
_ _ _
He stood outside the apartment a tear breaking down onto his cheek. Butterflies in his stomach. He hadn't cried over Blair for years and now that he had confessed what he felt for her, he felt a weight had been lifted but really it was just adding to it, because now that Blair knew all he cared about was her happiness she would stay with Nate because no matter what he did Nate would always make her happier. All that was needed was for Nate to forgive her and a little, small part of Chuck was begging to God that Nate would turn his back on Blair.
