A Million upendo Songs Later
A/N: Right so epilogue here it goes, I know predictable but what the hell – I upendo it!
Epilogue- Princesses wear headbands
FIVE YEARS LATER.
Their penthouse apartment was covered in balloons of pink and purple. It was only her fourth birthday but Blair always thought it was worth making a fuss over. The living room was fill to the juu with gifts, designer kids clothes, Oh wouldn't she look cute in them Blair thought as she folded them neatly on her kitanda while clearing up the Barbie dolls that had been left on the floor.
Scarlett Serena bass, besi was four today.
FOUR YEARS EARILER.
She was born on the 14th of February. That really annoyed Blair that her baby was going to ruin Valentine's siku for her. But her daughter was always going to be her mother's daughter, one to be remembered. Being born on Valentine's siku was going to see to that.
Chuck had gone off to work that siku without a worry. Blair was fine. Bit grouchy but fine. She was always the same in the mornings. But that morning, February 13th was not going to be a normal day.
“Okay Blair calm down”
Serena tried to calm Blair down.
“Don't tell me to calm down! wewe have this to come” Blair yelled the loudest her voice would go at Serena who was also now ten weeks pregnant. Things had defiantly progressed in the last year. Another certain hot shot was back in town. Carter Baizen, and he hadn't wasted any time in getting 'to know' Serena again and one too many wild party nights had lead to this, and not being the fatherly type he had obviously panicked and ran away, but a few days of being AWOL he returned knowing he had to do right kwa Serena and his unborn child. They were giving things a proper chance. After all they did make a wonderful couple. “Get me to the hospital now!!” Blair yelled hysterically.
“Okay I'll call an ambulance!”
Serena rushed to the phone and began to dial.
“And get me Chuck!”
Serena dialled Chuck first.
“Chuck? Where are you?”
“I'm at a meeting why?”
He whispered in an awkward voice knowing that all the other eyes in the room were staring at him.
“Blair's gone into Labour”
“What?!?! She can't have!! It's early”
“Okay listen to this”
Serena held the phone at Blair.
“CHUCK!!! I NEED YOU!!”
“I'm on my way”
He slammed the phone down and ran out of the conference room before he had a chance to explain what was going on, just leaving a group of puzzled business men around the conference table. He would have to leave Emily, his new PA, to explain.
He finally arrived at Belleview in no zaidi than fifteen dakika later. It must have been some kind of record, but not that he was in any hurry. Of course he wanted to be there for the birth of his child but the abuse he was going to get from Blair was not going to be sweetest thing he'd ever hear.
He followed the nurse into the room Blair was in, she was being comforted kwa Serena and another nurse.
“I HATE YOU!” Blair screamed as soon as she saw his face entering the room. Of course Chuck put this down to the labour pains and he rushed over to her side and kissed her forehead and held onto her hand. “Don't touch me!” She pulled away but then realizing she could at least make him suffer too. “Actually No give me your hand”
He tried to get away knowing her plan but if Blair wanted a hand, she would have one.
“Give me your hand!”
She grabbed a hold of his hand anyway and squeezed it so hard, hoping that he was getting some of her pain.
“Awww!! Blair! You're killing me”
“What do wewe think you've done to me!!”
She finally let go of his hand and threw it away as she broke down in tears.
“Okay I'm sorry, just breathe”
Chuck now felt guilty, but they had warned them of all the different emotions that happens during pregnancy in the antenatal classes. God how he wished they hadn't gone to them.
“Don't tell me what to do”
She snapped at him as Chuck caught a glimpse of Serena trying not to giggle on the other side of the room.
“Just breathe Blair, slowly”
The nurse repeated what Chuck had alisema and Blair just followed exactly.
“You listen to her”
Chuck muttered under his breath.
“She has the drugs!”
Another eight very painful hours for both Chuck and Blair before their baby was finally born.
14th of February.
Three seventeen am.
Six pounds, eleven ounces.
Baby girl bass, besi was born.
As Serena and the nurses gave Chuck and Blair a moment alone with their daughter. Blair cradled her baby in her arms, wrapped in a pink cotton blanket one of the two they had bought. They had decided to not know what was the sex of the baby was until the very last moment. A pink and a blue blanket and it was the pink that was going to be used.
Blair gazed down at her daughter sleeping quietly in her arms and every other sekunde turning to Chuck.
“I don't hate you” Blair smiled over at him and then gazed back at her baby. “I upendo you”
“I upendo wewe too”
Chuck moved closer to his girls and kissed them both on the forehead. “What do wewe want to name her?”
Chuck turned to Blair and asked that very important question. They would both have a say but it was always going to be Blair who got the last word au so Chuck thought.
Blair smiled up at him.
His eyes grew wider.
“You choose her name”
“No Blair, we both choose”
Chuck tried to reason with her because he knew whatever he chose Blair would pretend to like it but she probably wouldn't. He would have carried on that conversation but Blair was yawning every ten sekunde and Chuck thought he better let her get some sleep.
“You get some sleep Blair, I'll hold my girl”
Blair handed her over to Chuck, as she turned over and tried to get some sleep he passed around the room holding her so tightly so scared he was going to do something wrong and be a horrible father right from the start. That was his worst nightmare to be like his father, not even wanting him- that was never going to happen he could not wait to be a father and hoping he would be the best there could be.
A few hours later Blair woke up around five am and they discussed names and one stood out for both of them. Chuck and Blair decided on Scarlett as a first name, and the sekunde just came naturally to them. It was always going to be the name of someone who meant the world to them both and it was obviously going to be their best friend. Serena. Of course there was a debate whether she should be Waldorf-Bass au just Bass. Blair made a compromise and went with just Bass. It sounded better.
Blair was asleep the inayofuata siku Serena came to visit. Chuck was in Blair's private room holding Scarlett in his arms and kissing her forehead every sekunde and holding onto her tiny little fingers.
Serena put her head around the door.
Chuck spoke very quietly.
“Shall I come back later?”
Serena saw that Blair and Scarlett were asleep.
“No come in”
“Is the princess asleep?”
Serena grinned as she walked in.
“Which one?” Chuck laughed quietly. “Carter not with you?”
“No he's still away”
“He better be back soon, wewe wont want him to miss it”
“Oh he wont, We've got ages yet. So can I hold her?”
Chuck agreed handing over his beautiful newborn just as she opened her tiny, brown eyes.
“She's beautiful. She has your eyes, and your nose... She's all wewe Chuck”
“I hope not. I'd rather her be like Blair than me”
“What's her name?”
Serena held onto her hand with only one finger.
“That's a gorgeous name, oh Scarlett Bass”
She thought it was question.
“No that's her middle name. Scarlett Serena Bass”
Serena's jaw fell open and she nearly dropped Scarlett hearing what Chuck was saying.
“Because Blair and I thought we needed a name of someone we upendo and who means a lot to us. It could not be anyone else”
Serena smiled over at him and walked over with Scarlett and kissed his cheek and hugged him, nearly in tears and thanked him so much for that great honour.
From now whatever happened, she would always play a part in Scarlett's life.
FOUR YEARS LATER.
“Scarlett clean your mouth, chokoleti all over it”
She alisema while putting on that gorgeous smile of hers that made Blair feel so guilty for telling her off, but hearing those words just made Blair jump into another world. But before she had a chance for any zaidi thinking the tiny tearaway was pulling at her dress.
“Mama when is Daddy coming home?”
She smiled so as not to disappoint her daughter.
“He'll be back soon sweetie”
She picked her up and held her beautiful girl in her arms “and he's going to bring wewe the best gifts ever”.
Scarlett was ecstatic.
Blair nodded. “Yay!”
She shouted and hugged her mother tightly until Blair put her down and she ran away on her tiny little feet until they carried her back to Blair's view. “Oh Mama do wewe like my headband?”
Blair took a closer look and her mouth opened wide.
Scarlett giggled hysterically until she said.
“I know isn't it pretty, it's my thing now”
Blair could not help but smile. Scarlett bass, besi was defiantly going to be the inayofuata Blair Waldorf.
“That's my girl.”
Yes Scarlett was really her mother's daughter.
A few dakika later it was time for the birthday song. But he still wasn't back. Blair began to feel angry there was no way Chuck would miss his daughter's birthday. au would he? Things had been busy this mwezi with work and with the economy being the way it was things weren't going to get any better for them. He did what he had to do to give his girls the best life they could have.
Their maid brought out the huge cake that was specially made for the event with four candles standing with the flame burning on each one. She had the cake to Blair who carried out the cake for her baby girl to make a wish. She lay the cake on the meza, jedwali and all the party guests began to sing Happy Birthday just as they did Scarlett shut her eyes really tight and held onto Blair's hand and made a wish. Just as she did, her father arrived home.
Scarlett shouted as her little voice travelled across the room. “My wish came true”
They both smiled, Scarlett jumped to the floor and as fast as her legs could carry her, sje ran over to her father and held him tightly around his neck. Blair smiled as she gazed over. She knew he wouldn't miss their birthday.
“Sorry I'm late baby”
Chuck answered them while scuffing up her hair. Scarlett answered him with the biggest smile ever.
“It's okay Daddy, Mama alisema wewe wouldn't miss my birthday and Mommy never lies”
“No she doesn't”. He agreed and gazed over at his beautiful wife he could see the joy on her face.
“Where's my presents?” Scarlett asked, she really was a spoilt brat.
“Wow, that didn't take long did it?”
He chuckled but at the same time whispered in her ear and her expression was that of excitement and shock she ran into the hall where Chuck had left a mountain of gifts.
“What did wewe say?”
Blair alisema strolling over to him.
“I told her, her gifts are out there, sorry I was late”
“Don't worry wewe made it, that's all that matters”
He smiled back at her and they both had that long awaited hello kiss.
The party was coming to an end. All the children were filled up with party chakula and all the parents just wanted to go nyumbani and relax.
“Blair, we're leaving now so thanks for having us”
Katie tried to keep a hold of Zac and Grace who wanted to stay and play.
“Oh Dan, Katie you're leaving?”
Blair looked disappointed, all of the others had left but she didn't mind if Katie and Dan were to stay, they spent most days together so she was used to having them around all the time.
“Yeah, wewe know these two Blair if we don't get them nyumbani now we never will”
“Oh okay, thanks for coming. We'll see wewe inayofuata Friday then”
“Yeah sure, Zac, Grace lets go”
“But Mom we want to stay and play”
“No we've got to get home”
But the answer was not what the Humphrey kids wanted to hear. Katie was always the firm parent Dan could never say no to those little faces so Katie was left in charge, but even though their kids had everything they wanted Dan would never go as far as to spoil them, he knew they were going to grow up to be Upper East Siders but they would never be spoilt beyond reasoning.
“Okay lets go guys”
Dan alisema as he kissed Blair on the cheek goodbye. Scarlett hugged Grace so tight, she was her best friend. Dan and Blair shared a smile as their daughters hugged goodbye. Seeing Grace and Scarlett being so close reminded Blair of herself and Serena it was a shame she couldn't make it. Then all four could be together. Seeing Grace, Zac, Scarlett and Jake together was like looking into the past, they would be the new mini Non-Judging breakfast club. But she was on a trip to Paris and flying with a three mwaka old could be a bit of a job. Katie and Dan waved goodbye and lead the Humphrey family out of their house. They were the last to leave.
As Blair took some free time to relax and pamper herself with a relaxing bath Scarlett sat on the kitanda inayofuata to her father watching a dvd she had gotten as one of her many gifts from Chuck.
“You okay baby?”
“Ugh...It's all good”
“Where did wewe hear... Never mind”
For a dakika both sat silent until there was a knock at the door and Scarlett's favourite aunt entered.
“Hello... I haven't missed the party have I?”
Scarlett's mouth dropped wide open and she shouted, “Aunty Serena!”
Scarlett jumped off the kitanda and ran over to Serena and grabbed tightly onto her leg.
“Hey Scarlett, did wewe have a nice birthday?”
“Yeah it was the best. Daddy got me everything I wanted”
Serena turned to his direction and smiled,
“I bet he did”
Just after Serena had put her down Scarlett's other best friend came wondering in, Serena's little boy, Jake.
He shouted and both hugged eachother. They were so adorable.
Scarlett held onto Jake's hand as Serena smiled on at them.
“Go on Jake say happy birthday to Scarlett”
The cute little boy alisema as he tried to push the huge purple box that held Scarlett's gift. She ripped the paper off with a little help from Jake.
It was a huge handmade doll's house, she had told Serena she always wanted one and whatever Scarlett wanted Serena would get it for her. She loved to spoiler her too.
Serena and Chuck spent some time chatting and were later joined kwa Blair leaving Jake and Scarlett on the kitanda watching the movie until they both fell asleep.
Leaving Serena having to debate whether to wake him up.
“Stay Serena wewe can have the guest room”
Blair offered then there was no reason to get Jake up. Serena agreed and carried Jake up to one of the many, many guest rooms.
Chuck was going to do the same with Scarlett and put her to kitanda but she was such a light sleeper, she woke instantly.
“Jakie is my boyfriend Daddy”
She alisema as she woke up.
He was trying not to laugh and Blair could tell she slapped him in the stomach while grinning. She was starting young.
“Yeah, All the girls at school upendo him but he alisema I'm the best one”
He picked her up in his arms and kissed her forehead.
“You are the best one...”
“Yeah. Do wewe think Jakie liked my dress today?”
Scarlett asked looking at Chuck and Blair waiting for the answer she wanted to hear.
“How could he not? wewe looking so pretty”
“Just like Mama right?”
She grinned cheekily. She was so clever even at four she could tell everything, she picked up on everything. Chuck always ametoa maoni on how beautiful Blair looked every morning before going to work.
She giggled and wrapped her arms around his neck.
“Daddy you're the best in the whole world”
He never thought he could feel this much upendo for another human being besides Blair. His little girl the most important thing in the world. Just as she alisema this she gave him a kiss on the tip of his nose and both did their special nose rub. Only they did that. But hearing her say that he was the best in the world made him feel so proud of what he had achieved, his worst nightmare was that he would turn out like Bart. Not caring about anyone, only work. Never giving a sekunde thought to his child but Scarlett had just reassured him he was never going to be Bart Bass.
“I upendo wewe Daddy”
His smiled grew he had never felt loved apart from when he was with Blair now he had the most beautiful little girl in the whole world who loved her Mom and Dad zaidi than anything. It was like a something he had never felt before.
“I upendo wewe Scarlett Bass”
He held onto her and as she lay her head on his shoulder he stroked her little pigtails and kissed her goodnight.
“Scarlett Serena Bass”. She corrected his mistake. Now how could anyone not upendo such an adorable little princess she was his whole world. She was a Daddy's girl...Now why does that sound familiar?
A few hours after Serena had put Jake to kitanda and had turned in herself that left Anna the maid to tidy up. She was good but she was no Dorota.
Blair entered Scarlett's perfectly pink room. She was fast asleep her long brown hair which mirrored her mothers flew on one side of her head as she slept she held tight onto her teddy bear, the one she had named Ice cream. Weird they thought at the time but there was an explanation. It came that morning when Scarlett asked her father “what was the best thing in the world Daddy” and he had answered, “you are sweetie” and she had answered back “well for me is Ice cream”. Oh how they laughed that day. Blair tucked Scarlett in also and kissed her goodnight before leaving and entering her own room.
“Yeah, fast asleep”
She took off her vazi and hung it on the back of the door and climbed into kitanda inayofuata to him. As soon as she did he kissed her. She smiled.
“What was that for?”
“Nothing, I just wanted too”
It was things like this that made her cherish the life she had and the life she had chosen. She smiled as he got back to kusoma his documents. She gazed at him and pulled him towards her and she kissed him back. He took a hold of her hair and undid the plait, her hair fell down her back onto her shoulders. Their passionate embrace continued until she placed her hands around his neck and spoke,
“I upendo wewe Chuck”
“I upendo wewe too”
Yes today was the birthday of the Scarlett Serena Bass. It had been five years since Blair had turned her back on the easy life with Nate and was living the dream she'd had since she was eighteen and if he was honest he had too. It was then realised kwa Blair that it did matter all the history that they had. The summer in Vermont, that one night of temptation, the envy she had felt but if the end result was what she had today, it was all worth it.
A/N: Oh my Gosh!
