Five years old Chuck bass, besi set in the corner of a big room full of strange people in the apartment he has never been in before. He quickly got bored of watching people and taking to some old ladies who always messed up his hair and called him a cute little boy. He didn't want to be cute au sweet, he wanted to be a busy businessman so he would be like his father. His nannies always told him his father doesn't have the time to play with him because he is a busy businessman so he figured if he will be one too he will get to spend time with his dad. But now his father was nowhere to be seen and he decided he doesn't like Christmas. All of the children here were playing with their new toys they got for krisimasi and he couldn't since he only got money and he will go to toys duka not before the inayofuata day. Besides he didn't get it why everyone even his best friend Nathaniel loved holidays so much. For him it only meant going to the boring parties and sitting alone.
He was going to ask his nanny to take him nyumbani what he would do a long time zamani but he couldn't find her anywhere. But then he spotted a girl in his age with brown curls, which he thought were pretty but he would never tell anyone, sitting on the other side of the room looking wishfully at the blond girl and his best friend Nate who were playing with her new teddy bear. He rushed in her direction and after few sekunde stood in front of her.
'Hi. I'm Chuck Bass.' He always alisema his full name because his father did so too.
'Blair.' She replayed not tearing her eyes away from her best friend.
'Why are wewe sitting here alone?' He wanted to know why she didn't play with them since it's obvious she wants to.
She finally looked at him and seemed to think about his question. Then she looked away again and alisema with a bored voice 'And why do wewe care?'
'I don't. I just wanted to know.'
'I don't like it. I want to play something else. Why don't wewe play with the others?'
'Because it's stupid.' He alisema with a smirk. 'I can play with you.' He added unsure of her reaction. He really wanted to play with her as she was the prettiest girl he had ever seen.
'Ok.' She alisema with a little smile. 'But we will do as I say.'
'Fine.' He shrugged his shoulders inaonyesha her it doesn't matter what they will do.
'We will pretend I'm a princess and wewe will be my prince. Now I'm going to hide and wewe have to find and save me. I'm going, hurry up Chuck!'
With the last smile she ran off and Chuck went after her five dakika later thinking he may like krisimasi after all.
"Christmas is coming,
lights are on the tree.
Hang up your stocking, pantyhose for Santa Claus to see."
krisimasi Is Coming
Ten years old Blair Waldorf put the last glass ball on her krisimasi mti and stood looking at her room she had spent all siku decorating. Everything was ready for her favourite siku of the year. She loved krisimasi so she asked her daddy to let her have her own small mti in her bedroom. She also with Dorota's help hang two krisimasi stockings in which Santa will leave the gifts. She sat on her kitanda and thought what to do. She really couldn't wait for tomorrow when she will receive her gift which hopefully would be a red headband she really really wanted to get as she decided recently headbands would be her signature look because everyone who matters needs signature.
She saw the door opening and Chuck walked in. Since her mother’s krisimasi party five years zamani she really liked Chuck and they have been spending a lot of time together. He always got her better than Serena, often helping her with her shames when S and Nate were only saying that she shouldn't do it and now she was happy to have him here on her special holidays as their two other Marafiki were abroad spending family krisimasi in Spain. When she had found out that Chuck's father left him to spend his krisimasi with some strange nanny she quickly asked her dad for permission and now here he was spending holidays with her and her family. When she looked at him she spotted that he seems unsure and nervous so she quickly got up and run to him.
'Chuck you're here! I've just ended decorating my tree. What do wewe think?' She asked after she hugged him. He never let anyone else do it even Serena and that made her very happy that he liked her best unlike to everyone else including her mother. She saw him relaxing and he smirked.
'It's beautiful but wewe look even better.' He alisema and she blushed. He always makes her blush with his words and she loves that he thinks she's pretty. She gave him a big smile and showed him the stockings.
'Look I hang one for wewe and one for me so Santa will know where to leave our gifts. I can't wait! Are wewe excited Chuck?' She asked and saw him look down. She frowned and wanted to know what's wrong. 'Chuck what's the matter? Aren't wewe excited for presents?'
'I don't get presents, only money and I already got them before my father left.' He alisema still not looking in her eyes. That made her feel sad for her friend so she came up with a plan.
'Don't worry Chuck I'm sure he will leave wewe something when he will see you're here. Now let's watch our krisimasi movie!' She turns around so she doesn't see his doubtful expression as he doesn't believe Santa will finally leave him something real this mwaka but she wouldn't ever tell her that since he knows it's her favourite time on the mwaka and he's happy he can be here and doesn't want to do anything that would upset her.
Blair put on their movie which they watched every krisimasi and she always liked to tell everyone it's their tradition. She loves traditions and she's happy she has one with her best friend too. Later she goes downstairs to bring them snacks from Dorota and visits her daddy in his office to put her plan in the motion.
They have eventually fallen asleep and then Harold Waldorf came in his little princess room and smiled at the sight of his daughter and young bass, besi cuddled together on her bed. He switched the DVD off and pulled a blanket over them. Then he puts his girl's dream headband in her stocking, pantyhose and then as she asked him to do he puts a red scarf in little boy's stocking. After all everyone needs a signature like his daughter told him earlier.
"Through the years we all will be together
If the fates allow
Hang a shining nyota upon the highest bough
And have yourself a merry little krisimasi now"
Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas
Fifteen years old Blair Waldorf always loved Christmas. au at least she did until this mwaka everything has been going wrong. It was like everyone wanted it to fail and it was a success for now. Her daddy, who left few months ago, was nowhere to be seen and all she got for him was a call about his sick gay lover making him stay in France. Her best friend Serena was somewhere that was definitely not here and in her case Blair hasn't even got the slightest idea what is going on with her blond friend. And Nate her boyfriend was at his Grandparents house not that it mattered since he was never with her lately anyway. Sitting alone in her bedroom when her mother was downstairs throwing a party for some strangers on krisimasi Eve she knew who she missed the most. Chuck bass, besi her other best friend since they were little kids wasn't here either and she knew it was her fault.
They were going to spend holidays together like they have been doing since they were five. Chuck has always been coming to be with her and her parents as his father never spent this time in nyumbani which was as Chuck thought because he hated him and as Christmases were happy time he didn't want his son around. Blair always alisema it's not true and he's just busy but she wasn't sure. She was upset her dad isn't going to be here but she at least had Chuck and it was always just the two of them since Serena and Nate were always away with their families.
But of course that had to go wrong too like everything in her life in last few months and now without bass, besi she didn't have anyone to go to. They were shopping for a gift for her boyfriend and were taking almost three hours and she was frustrated kwa not being to able to find something good enough so when he asked her why she was taking so long to find a present for Nate when she only needed ten dakika alone in one of the shops to buy his she snapped that some gifts are zaidi important and immediately regretted it when he saw the look of hurt passing quickly his face. She wanted to apologize and tell him she didn't really mean it and he should know it's not true but before she opened her mouth he was walking away from her.
She left to go nyumbani crying and not caring anymore about buying something for Archibald. He won't notice anyway. As she stared at the krisimasi meal Dorota brought her upstairs since she refused to go to her mother's stupid party she thought that maybe she should call Chuck. He was probably sitting alone drinking in his suite when he could be with Nate but he refused to go because of her and their tradition. Well and now thanks to her he had a lonely krisimasi and she felt really guilty. She knew why she spent so much time searching for a present for Nate and so little for Chuck. It was because she really couldn't find anything for her boyfriend as she didn't even know him anymore good enough to know what he would like. Unless wewe count pot as an option. But with Chuck bass, besi she already knew his favourite duka and it took her three dakika to find perfect pink bowtie and another four to choose his typical style scarf. He still had one from five years zamani and has been wearing it almost all the time but she would sometimes get him new one just like he would buy her a new headband and in this way their collections became pretty big.
Blair decided to call and ask him to come over when the door opened and the boy himself walked in.
'Chuck! I thought wewe wouldn't want to see me after yesterday. I am really sorry, wewe know I didn't mean it.' She alisema quickly hoping he was here to be with her not to yell at her though she deserved it.
'I know Waldorf. And wewe couldn't possibly think I would abandon wewe on krisimasi Eve and let wewe mop her alone.' He replayed with a small smile to let her know everything's good between them.
She smiled back a huge smile lighted up her face and grabbed his hand to lead him to her bad. Once he was on his side of the kitanda she grabbed the remote to start a movie. She put it in earlier but she knew she wouldn't be able to watch it alone as it was their tradition after all but now she was happy she wouldn't have to. She gave him one zaidi smile and he sent her one too as they continued to watch and eat just like they did every year.
"Ooh, wewe make the season bright
With the lights reflecting in your eyes
All my dreams are coming' true tonight
It's krisimasi Eve and I can see we're in love"
'Christmas Eve' Celine Dion
Twenty years old Chuck bass, besi was pacing nervously around his room in the huge apartment he and his girlfriend moved in six months ago. She was unsure if it is a good idea but he convinced her quickly and there were his mouth involved. He was nervous then too but it was nothing compared to what he was feeling now. It was a inayofuata stop in their relationship just like saying 'I upendo you' au moving in together but he was pretty sure Blair didn't even thought he was ready. But he was and he spent last mwezi planning everything carefully so everything will be perfect as she deserved it to be. He chose krisimasi as it was her favourite holiday, their holiday sine they were five not counting two years in high school when their relationship was too messed up to be together but he didn't like to think about it.
He got out the small box from his pocket and stared at it for a while. 'Come on bass, besi wewe can do it' he thought and quickly put it back when he heard the door opening and his gorgeous girlfriend walked in. She looked beautiful with the snow in her chokoleti curls and a big smile on her face as she walked to him a kissed lightly his lips. He smiled back and helped her took off her green kanzu, koti and they sat on the coach after she took off her high heels. She knows him best so she obviously noticed his strange behavior as she asked after watching him for few seconds.
'What's with wewe Bass? wewe seem tense.' She raised her eyebrows at him. He gulped and decided he couldn't wait anymore so he decided to screw his plans about the chajio, chakula cha jioni in her favourite restaurant since if she will want to marry him she will do it no matter how he will propose and got down on his knee taking her hands in his and watched her eyes widen at him. He took deep breath and started one of the most important things he will say in his life.
'Blair I upendo you. I always loved wewe and I know I will never stop. Now I know it's probably soon but I want to be with wewe forever. I will do anything to make wewe happy if wewe let me. I really upendo wewe and please marry me Blair.' He ended taking out the box and inaonyesha her his mother ring. It was beautiful not too large ring he had for three years since his father left it to him. He was always sure it would end up on Blair’s finger and hoped she agrees. He felt his heat beat faster than ever and looked up at her.
He saw her eyes fill up with tears and was afraid he did something wrong and she doesn't want to marry him and it's now trying to find a way to say it to him but then she smiled just like she did when he told her he loved her first time and kissed him whispering one word he wanted to hear most.
'Yes Chuck of course I'll marry you. I upendo wewe too. I upendo wewe so much.' He smiled the biggest smile in his life and put the ring on her small finger. He then brought her hand to his lips and kissed her fingers before taking her in his arms to carry her to their bedroom kissing her all the way there. He guessed they will change the tradition a little this mwaka not that he minds.
"Then, I saw Mommy tickle Santa Claus
Underneath his beard so snowy white
Oh, what a laugh it would have been
If Daddy had only seen
Mommy kissing Santa Claus last night."
I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus
Four years old Charlie bass, besi loved krisimasi just like his mother. So now after they had eaten dinner, him and his mommy and daddy like every evening, his parents tucked him in and he had made sure to ask one zaidi time if tomorrow he will get gifts and he was happy as his mommy assured him that Santa will come tomorrow and leave them under their krisimasi mti in the living room. They were decorating it all siku and he thinks the mti looks pretty.
He has been laying in the kitanda in his bedroom and hugging his stuffed giraffe, which he had got from aunt Serena on his last birthday, for twenty dakika now. He called him samaki bass, besi and really didn't know why everyone was laughing when he told them, as it is obvious that when your last time is bass, besi wewe should be named Fish. He didn't understand why his parents hadn't called him that either but he liked his name after all it was the same as his dad and he wanted to be just like him. He had made sure before going to kitanda that he has his scarf on too like he did every night. He had got it at his birthday party too and it was the same Santa had got his daddy fifteen years zamani and it was in his favourite colour red. He always liked it as it was soft and smelled like mummy and daddy so he always wears it to sleep because thank to it he won't miss them too much.
He was turning from side to side for ten zaidi dakika now and couldn't sleep as he was too excited for tomorrow when aunt Serena and uncle Carter with little Julie and Eric will visit and uncle Nate and aunt Jenny will be here too and they alisema they will bring their baby Tasha and he wanted to see her since he couldn't go with his parents to hospital to meet her and he had to stay nyumbani with grandpa, who was mummy's dad, though he wasn't too upset as they always had fun together. Now he waited to see her as his parents alisema she was awesome.
But he just can't sleep so he decides to go look at the mti again as he loves to do. He got up quickly and walked out of his room trying to do it as quiet as possible since he didn't want to wake up anyone. With samaki tucked under his arm he walked down the stairs and stopped when he heard voices coming from the direction he was going. He ran left distance as fast as he could and slowly popped his head through the door. His eyes widened at what he saw there. Near their beautiful mti stood his mommy and Santa Claus and they were kissing! He couldn’t believe Santa was in his apartment! But then he realized that mom is kissing Santa Claus like she always kiss daddy and his eyebrows furrowed. He remembered that his father alisema wewe should only kiss someone like that when wewe upendo them.
He sees them laughing and he thinks that maybe mom now loves Santa. But no he knows mommy and daddy only loves each other and him most, they always say him that. He stands here a little zaidi and when his eyes are starting to close he decides to go back to kitanda and ask his mom tomorrow. He disappears in his room and doesn't see Blair bass, besi removing her husband white beard and doesn't hear their talk.
'Good it fits you, I can't believe wewe forgot to try it on earlier! What would wewe do if it was too small au something would be not right with it?' Blair sighed looking at her smirking husband of almost five years. They got married two months after he proposed on Christmas, which was amazing and she loved it, and not long after they came back from their two weeks honeymoon in France she found out that she's pregnant. She wasn't sure how he will react as she knew about his mother but he couldn't be happier when he shoved her with kisses and was so sweet and caring during all of her pregnancy. She didn’t count his almost fainting during her delivery.
'Are wewe suggesting I gained some weight Mrs. Bass?' He raised his eyebrow looking not even a bit regretful at his wife. It was their new krisimasi tradition since Charlie's birth that each mwaka even when he was too young to remember it he would dress up and be Santa Claus for their little boy and this mwaka his sister's and Nathaniel's kids too. He still couldn't really believe he and Carter were Marafiki in some strange way now. They still had their arguments but for the sake of their new families made a truce.
'No I'm just inaonyesha wewe that wewe didn't think about it and wewe should. Now take it off.' She alisema rolling her eyes. Really didn't he know she loved his body? She sure showed him it every night.
'And here I thought wewe would at least wait until we're in our bedroom. Not that I complain.' He gave her this sexy smirk she loved so much but often made her frustrated.
'I meant that Charlie can come here any sekunde and I would like to see wewe explaining to him why his daddy is a Santa.' She replayed with her own smirk. He grabbed her hand and walked her with him to the bedroom. He then stopped in front of her looking at her with his hazel eyes that always saw right through her.
'Well in this case why won't wewe help me a little Mrs. Bass?' He whispered suggestively and brought her closer to him.
'Why not indeed?' She whispered back in his ear and felt him shiver at her hot breath. She smiled and kissed him again while helping him to remove the costume.
In the morning when little bass, besi woke up and spotted that their guests were already here he forgot about last night quickly running to play with Eric Baizen after he decided he doesn't really see what's so awesome about Tasha Archibald as she was too small to play and cried too much for his liking. Although in the evening when Santa came he was relived to see that he quickly left after he gave them their gifts and then daddy came back from his office where he had to take an important call and mommy was kissing him again. He decided she was just thanking Santa for coming and he’s sure she loves daddy.
