Hey guys, Thank you sooooooo much for all the lovely reviews! This fic is so hard to write because I'm not sure which direction it's headed in, I have a plot line in mind but I'm still struggling a bit, so I do warn you that updates may become irregular and I totally apologise for that. I know it's really crappy but I hardly get the time to write!
Here's the next chapter, it is kinda rated M, im not sure what the distinction is really but there is sex in this chapter so i'll give it an M to be on the safe side!
Hope you enjoy it because after this chapter things start to get a bit shaky as a new twist emerges in the story! Enjoy and dont forget to review please!
The next morning was awkward to say the least, Blair woke up to find Chuck already awake
staring at her. He smiled at her and she yawned finally smiling back at him as he began rubbing circles onto her naked back, his arm had wound around her waist.
"Morning," he whispered, and she repeated his greeting back to him "Are you...feeling better....I mean after what happened yesterday...not with us...I mean with Eleanor?" he asked her, did he just struggle with words...that was a first.
"Urm...I guess i'll get over it...eventually....and...about the other thing that happened...with us....it...was...." she searched for the right word, incredible, mind-blowing, perfect, amazing, earth-shattering...but he interrupted, "just part of our plan...right?" He should really learn to keep his mouth shut, he thought, he should have just waited to hear what she had to say but no he had to stay in denial and on the safe side just incase it hadn't mean anything to her.
"....our plan..." she couldn't believe he was trying to brush off what happened between them last night as just part of their plan, she was sure she had seen something in his eyes. She tried to pretend she knew exactly what he was talking about but wanted him to elaborate, he did, "our plan...the one we agreed on the other day...eventual divorce...and in the mean time....well you know..." he reiterated hoping that she would disagree and tell him what last night meant, of course he didn't actually know what it had meant himself, he wasn't sure how he felt about the situation or about her but he knew he couldn't jump to any conclusions especially since he was unfamiliar with the territory of relationships and following their plan was just so much easier than complicating things by wondering into territory he had no previous experience of, besides they were getting along just fine this way and maybe one day he would feel comfortable talking to her openly about their relationship but for now he wasn't ready for the commitment. He noticed her expression change, from her earlier perkiness to her now confused or even shocked expression, had he said something wrong? He contemplated what would happen if he was just honest with her, and himself, what would things be like if he admitted that he hoped last night was more than just part of their arrangement, would it change them, would it ruin things and would she even feel the same, he wondered.
"Yeah...the plan...sure" she said as she managed to slide out from under his arm and wrap one of the bed covers around her body, then she quickly got out of the bed and disappeared into the bathroom without another word from either of them.
She closed the bathroom door behind her. Relief. She could finally have a moment to herself to contemplate the events of last night and her conversation with Chuck this morning. How could he not have felt anything...the look on his face last night, the way he looked into my eyes, the way he comforted me, the way he removed the make-up from my face because he knew I wouldn't want to sleep with mascara all over my face, the way he held me and touched me, the way he made sure that I was ready before making love to me, the sweet things he whispered to me whilst we made love...there was no way it meant nothing to him...no way.
She quickly got into the shower, she needed to wash him off. Maybe he just needed a little convincing, she knew that he felt something, he had to, but she also understood that he wasn't the committing type and that he would need a lot of pushing to finally embrace a relationship, if that was the case then she would just have to be patient.
It was more than an hour before she got out and it looked as though Chuck had used one of the other bathrooms in the house because he was nowhere to be seen, he had probably gone to work already. She rushed getting ready and left for work herself not able to rid her mind of the events of last night or this morning. She just couldn't shake the thought that maybe the sex was just part of the plan because then it would mean she would have to play along and it was most likely that they would get under the covers again tonight and probably most nights, she found herself smiling at this and then quickly snapped back to reality.
"Jenny....can I....talk to you about....something?" asked Blair, it was lunch at Blair's design studio and her and Jenny had ordered take-out so that they could work through lunch. Blair hadn't been able to get Chuck off her mind and needed a second opinion. She couldn't go to Serena because she needed an impartial opinion so Jenny was the perfect candidate, the only problem being she wouldn't be able to tell Jenny the whole truth of course, Jenny was under the impression that Chuck and Blair were a happily married couple, not some intruders from another world, so of course Blair would have to make most of her story up.
"Sure Blair, what's up?" replied Jenny, always eager to impress her boss.
"Well....you see...urm...I'm kind of having a little trouble...in paradise..." she began, giggling a little and earning a nervous look from Jenny, "basically a while ago...me and Chuck had a little argument and things have been...well awkward to say the least, we avoided each other for a while...slept in different bedrooms, until last night..." ok good so far, she thought, "which was the first time I slept with him..." oh no that sounded stupid! "urm not the very first time of course" she giggled nervously, "just the first time since our argument." they both giggled as Jenny put down her sewing kit that she had been fiddling with.
"Well obviously I know you didn't mean the very first time...that would be...unlikely seeing as you've been together since high school!....right so what's the problem exactly?" questioned Jenny.
She wasn't sure how she was supposed to get any useful advice through having to lie about her situation. She couldn't exactly say 'hey me and Chuck are from an alternate universe, so not the Chuck and Blair you know and well I want to know how I would make him want to be like the Chuck and Blair you knew, i.e. In love', no she couldn't exactly say that, but she needed advice on how she could get Chuck to feel something while they slept together rather than just settle for his excuse of just following through on their arrangement. "Well i'm not exactly sure what last night meant...I mean...i'm still not completely comfortable with being...intimate with him...because of the argument of course...so I just wanted to figure it out really...you know...how I feel about him and how he feels?" sighed Blair hoping she hadn't sounded too confused.
"Well...you know how the two of you are with playing games" giggled Jenny, "and it sounds a bit like you haven't completely forgiven him...for your argument, but at the same time you want to...does that sound about right?" asked Jenny desperately hoping that she was getting somewhere.
"I guess," answered Blair waiting for Jenny to continue. That could compare to how she wanted to be with Chuck and embrace her feelings for him, but wasn't exactly sure she could because of her uncertainty about whether he felt the same way and it had made her uncomfortable in the morning when he claimed that last night was just part of their arrangement. At the same time she was desperate to have him, in every capacity.
"Right so...if deep down you want to forgive him and have a repeat of last night...then maybe you should overlook the fact that your angry about your argument and do what Chuck and Blair do best...?" finished Jenny.
"Be madly in love. I'm sure he's suffering right now...you know how Chuck gets when your angry with him...and denying him sex. I mean you do love him and i'm sure you're missing the intimacy as much as he is...maybe you should just make up." chimed Jenny, impressed by the huge grin on Blair's face, her advice must have done the trick.
"So you think I should just be intimate with him....again?"
"Yeah sure...you always said make-up sex with Chuck was the best...and this little situation sounds like nothing compared to things that have happened with you guys in the past...why not just be your self and seduce him back into your good books...you know how much he loves it when you play your little sexual games with him! Besides, Chuck loves you and would never be truly mad at you, he cant resist you no matter how much he'll try to deny it, you're inevitable and all you have to do is be open with him and you'll have him twisted around your little finger!" laughed Jenny, making Blair blush and giggle too.
Blair wasn't sure she was confident enough to seduce Chuck, she didn't feel too experienced when it came to sex either, even though her equivalent Blair seemed more than experienced, she had seen the sex tape to prove it.
"The sex tape!" whispered Blair to herself.
"What?" asked Jenny not quite hearing what Blair had said, luckily.
"Oh nothing...thanks for the advice J! I totally owe you!" she hugged her before returning to her office planning her next move with Chuck.
She knew she had to watch at least one of their sex tapes just to get some tips and an idea of what Chuck liked to do and what he liked being done to him...surely his sexual needs wouldn't be far off from his equivalent and once she made him see how perfect they were together he wouldn't be able to deny that they were meant to be together.
It had been a long day of work for Chuck, closing deals, contacting clients and researching along with the numerous meetings he'd had scheduled. Calling Nate for drinks after work was his next stop, Nate was going to meet him at the palace bar where Nate and Serena both had a suite when they were in town and of course Chuck had still held onto suite 1812 for old times sake. They greeted each other with a bear hug seeing as Nate had been away for a while and Chuck was glad to see him alone for once, just the boys.
"Nice to see you man! How's DC?" asked Chuck whilst ushering the bar tender his way.
"It's good man, it was quite easy to get hang of all the politics stuff, the President and I get along well, even if he ain't Chuck Bass!" joked Nate reminding Chuck of his obsession with being President.
"Oh believe me bro, im over it, besides I've got Bass Industries, i'm practically the richest guy in the world, who needs to be president!" he laughed back whilst ordering their drinks.
"So how's Blair? You two working things out?" the sudden mention of Blair threw Chuck off and he wasn't sure whether to tell Nate, his best friend the whole truth or to leave certain bits out, he went with the latter, Nate or Serena didn't need to know about the stupid arrangement they had made, after all it was just a mind game and it wasn't as though they would actually get divorced.
"Oh, we're ok I guess, getting along, no more arguing. Every thing's moving along."
"That's good to hear man, I knew you would eventually come around to the idea." smiled Nate.
Chuck just forced a smile back before taking another sip of his drink, he hated it when someone said 'I told you so', it felt as though he had just lost a battle. He knew there was no way he would be able to explain the truth to Nate, he didn't have enough brain cells to comprehend the complicated nature of the arrangement Chuck and Blair had come to. In fact it would probably be difficult for anyone to understand, it was stupid of him to have brought it up in the first place but he had been sure that Blair would never agree to it and had his hopes set on her saying no and making him accept their marriage. He knew it was just her being stubborn and not wanting to admit that she actually wanted to stay married and going along with the divorce idea was just her way of hiding her true feelings, even though the divorce had been his idea but he had only suggested it as reverse psychology hoping it would push her to forget the incident of her walking in on him with another woman and remember the fact that they had to accept the whole marriage thing and 'live as a couple'. So now they were stuck playing a mixed up game, is that what Chuck and Blair were about, playing games?
Nate was glad that Chuck and Blair had come to terms with their 'marriage' situation and deep down he had been dreading the day if they ever broke up. He felt as though their union was the main thing keeping the four of them connected. He was always going to be away in Washington and Serena was always touring with her modelling career taking her all over the country and the world, Chuck and Blair were pretty much rooted in New York and their union was the only thing that was familiar to the four of them. In a way, Chuck and Blair being married just made sense, it kept the four of them together. If Blair was left to go her own separate way she would have no reason to keep in touch with the others, due to losing her torpedo ring, it meant she wasn't one of them any more. Serena and Nate were never good at keeping in touch and Chuck alone would eventually realise that he was probably better off alone. So Chuck and Blair being married kept Blair in the circle and would make sure that Chuck was kept in line with her pushiness and her persistence on making a future and working hard to achieve something, she would also make sure that the four of them kept in constant contact.
"Enough about me and Blair, what about you? Have you seen Serena lately?" he queried, changing the subject effectively.
"Yeah we talk all the time over the phone, she's visited a couple of times too, all's good" Nate replied playing with his empty glass. Chuck ordered refills whilst continuing to pry, "any lucky damsel in distress begging you to save her yet?" he smirked.
"No Chuck....not yet! But there are a few hot girls in my apartment block...i've just got to keep the gentleman reputation going you know."
"Even a gentleman deserves a romp now and again, come on your in line for the presidency, surely that must be like a turn on for girls...you should have some fun...maybe....Serena...?" he smirked suggestively and Nate nearly choked on his own saliva.
"What are you kidding me! We're friends you know!"
"Like that should stop you!" laughed Chuck.
"Whatever...me and Serena are strictly friends, it would be totally weird if it were anything more. You should know what with you being married to Blair!" now Nate was the one laughing and Chuck felt his cheeks redden. Yes for the first time in his life, Chuck actually found himself blushing, of course Nate didn't notice.
"Umm, yeah...actually it's not that bad." he conceded.
"Really? I know you said things are going good with you guys but I know how much you hate the idea of being tied down, in a pretend marriage none the less," smiled Nate accusingly. Was Chuck actually coming around to the idea of 'being' with Blair?
"Yeah, but that doesn't mean it's not fun being with her, the whole marriage thing is an inconvenience, it's complicated, but I enjoy her company, but dont tell her I said that, don't want her getting her La Perla's in a twist."
"What are those?" asked a dumbfounded Nate.
Chuck simply shook his head in amusement before finishing his drink, "never mind, Nathaniel."
Blair was going out of her mind that evening, sitting on her bed, well "their" bed, with DVD's scattered in front of her. To watch or not to watch, she wondered and it was making her nauseous. She had already placed one in the DVD player and her finger was hovering over the play button on the remote control.
"Come on Blair stop being such a wimp!" she argued out loud, "you can do this, it's not even you or him in the videos, it' your equivalents and it's not like you haven't seen him naked before, or had sex with him because you so totally did last night" she smirked to herself thinking about last night when she had let Chuck in and slept with him for the first time and he had made her come alive with every thrust and every dirty phrase he had whispered onto her neck, "Jesus Blair, just stop thinking about it and watch the damn tape!" and with that she had pressed the play button and waited silently for the action to begin. Nothing? There was nothing, just an empty bedroom, the one she herself was in right now, oh wait, she heard and then saw Chuck and herself stumbling into the room in a frenzy of kissing and ripping their clothes off. She cringed at first and wanted to look away or just close her eyes and ears at the noises the Blair in the video was making and then she heard the Chuck in the video call out her name, "Blair, oh fuck, I love you baby."
That was when she felt tears prodding at her eyes, it was when she realised what Chuck and Blair were about. They were in love, they didn't have sex, they made love and Chuck loved her. These weren't just sex tapes, they were video evidence of their love. She let the tears fade away and found herself smiling, she was happy for them, for once she was desperate to have what they had and to recreate that love. She continued to watch in awe as the lovers on-screen continued to make love not just once but three times and each time was different and more intense than the time before, she had definitely learned a thing or two, particularly how Chuck liked to be pleased, not only that but she learned how she herself liked to be touched. She watched them lay tangled together on the bed, catching their breath and then Chuck said something she couldn't hear but it had the Blair in the video laughing and playfully slapping his chest. Then she began telling him how much she missed him after he'd been away so long on business and he replied by teasing her about the number of times they had phone sex while he was away.
"Is that all they ever did, have sex?" wondered Blair to herself, continuing to watch and listen intently. She was surprised when she saw Blair raise herself over Chuck's body and she began kissing him again and then she had turned around and sat on him whilst straddling him with her back to him. Which meant she was facing right towards the camera, clearly she had no idea that they were being filmed and when she looked right into the lens just before she was about to lower herself onto Chuck, she stopped.
Blair gritted her teeth in anticipation, had her equivalent spotted the camera, did she really have no clue she was being filmed? She continued to watch as the Blair in the video escaped Chuck's grasp and raced towards the camera grabbing it and inspecting it before turning to Chuck, his smirk was visible until the camera dropped to the floor and all Blair saw was flooring, but she could still hear.
"You scoundrel! You were filming this" screamed Blair.
"What's the big deal baby?" he tried to reason.
"The big deal?! The big deal is that you filmed me in secret! We were having sex! You're disgusting!"
"Look baby, i've been away four days, when I got home and knew you were on your way home from work I knew we were going to have crazy welcome back sex, I wanted to capture the moment." she could imagine the smirk on his face and the fury on Blair's.
"You crazy Basshole! Why couldn't you just tell me!"
"Because I knew you'd be camera shy, performance anxiety can hit you at the worst of times," he whispered with that smooth seductive voice, "besides, no one's going to see the video except us." he added.
"What if I dont want a sex tape, did you ever consider that you selfish, conceited pig!" she yelled.
"Oh we're two of the same baby, we both want the same thing, come on, it's fun...you're always complaining about me watching pornos, now I can watch this, with you and you'll be star of the show."
Then there was a short silence before she noticed movement, the camera had been lifted up and put back in place with Blair grinning into the lens.
"Well if you want a sex tape, i'll give you a fucking sex tape and it'll be better than all those amateur pornos you watch!" she smiled before pouncing onto the bed in front of an unsuspecting shocked Chuck, who before he could say anything was attacked by his wife's lips.
Oh my, they're doing it again, thought Blair, she had no idea that they would have the energy to keep it going after what she had already watched, but apparently their night was young. She watched in horror as their moans and screaming became louder and more aggressive, wait, was he spanking her! She was afraid of watching any more because now they weren't even making love any more, they were having crazy aggressive sex and Blair had never seen anything like it in her life.
Then she got the shock of her life, "What the hell?"
Nate had just deposited Chuck in front of his house, not that they were drunk or anything.
Chuck waved goodbye to his best friend before wondering into his house.
He was hoping Blair would be home and not have a late shift at work, he had actually missed her, only a little. He called out to her in the lounge but she wasn't there so he slumped into the sofa and took a moment to catch his breath. He thought of waiting in the lounge for Blair to show up but the appeal of going to the bedroom and passing out on the bed for the night was just too tempting so he dragged himself up the steps and toward his bedroom. He could hear voices when approaching the door and definitely recognised on of those voices as Blair's...was she....having sex? He almost kicked the door open desperate to see who Blair was with but what he saw was a whole different thing, something that rendered him almost speechless, and the look on Blair's face was no different.
"What the hell?" he gasped, "oh fuck Blair are you watching..." his voice trailed off as he looked at the screen in front of him and saw himself and Blair, well their equivalents, having a crazed, incredibly loud, sex session. Then his eyes landed on a deranged Blair in front of him on the bed fumbling with the remote control attempting to switch the video off. After three attempts she was successful and the room fell into utter silence for what seemed like forever until it was finally broken by Chuck's soft laughter. Blair looked at him startled before he sat on the bed near her still chuckling and causing her to back away from him on the bed. She couldn't believe she had been caught by Chuck watching the sex tapes, it was the worst thing that could have ever happened to her. She knew she should have never watched them, or at least locked the door, who's stupid idea was it anyway! She couldn't even look him in the eye,how the hell was she going to explain this without making herself look like a desperate needy voyeur.
"Blair, it's ok" he giggled, looking over at her and noticing her shaking slightly, he tried hard to think of something to say to make her feel less embarrassed, "it's no big deal, seriously, I would be watching them continuously if i'd known where you hid them." he chuckled again trying to lighten the mood.
"I didn't want to watch it....I....was just...finding out....stuff." she stuttered, she had never been more embarrassed in her entire life and she seemed to find herself in such situations a lot these days. She couldn't even think of a good enough excuse so the truth just seemed to run through her head over and over.
"Find out what stuff? Are you sure you weren't just watching it for entertainments sake?" he teased.
Blair frowned at him, "don't be stupid! Of course not! I was only watching to get tips!" she cringed at hearing the truth roll off her tongue, she must have sounded so desperate to him and she wished she could have taken it all back because he was watching her now, intently with his dark smouldering eyes and he was inching towards her closing the space between them inch by inch until she felt his breath warm her cheeks and then he kissed her blushing cheek intimately, lingering on for a moment making her eyelids flutter.
It all suddenly became clear to him, she was worried that she wasn't good enough for him, she wanted their 'sex life' to be enjoyable so she had watched the tapes to learn more about it. Didn't she know that she was just perfect the way she was, of course if she had some better moves it would spice things up a bit, but he just wanted her, he wouldn't complain if she was inexperienced, he would just make her better, practice makes perfect and just being with her was good enough for him.
"You don't need tips Blair, you were perfect last night," and with that declaration and the fact that she was horny from watching the video, before she could stop herself, Blair had reached out her hand to his face allowing it to linger there for a moment. He looked deep into her eyes, surprised by the contact and the effect it had on him, immediately warming his cheek and sending shivers down his back. Her hand was so small and dainty that it tickled him slightly as she stroked his cheek. He smiled at her before returning the gesture by covering her hand with his and then bringing her hand to his lips and placing kisses along her knuckles. Her eyelids fluttered once more and Chuck took this as an encouraging sign. He pulled her closer against his body still holding her hand which was now at her side and she clung onto him for dear life, even though he held her steady with his free arm around her waist. She wasn't sure who made the first move but they were kissing now, hands everywhere and anywhere they could reach. She had never been kissed like this before and felt her insides dance with excitement. She couldn't get the image of the video out of her head and found herself using the tips she had learned without even realising. She scraped her fingernails into his back and he hissed at the sensation encouraging her to continue whilst he attempted to kiss her jaw and then her neck and simultaneously tear her blouse off. She was kissing him wildly just as the video had shown her and then she remembered his weak spot, his neck. After removing his upper half clothing completely she pushed him down onto the bed and climbed on top of him earning and "easy tiger" from him. She smiled at him before attacking his neck with her lips, teeth and tongue and by the sound of his moans and movements he was enjoying it.
Who was this and what had she done to his sweet and innocent friend, thought Chuck, not that he was complaining, "that sex tape sure helped" he growled into her hair as she continued kissing down his chest. He assumed her digging her nails into him was her response to his comment. He began rubbing his hands over her arms, shoulders and neck to get some sort of release at watching her move so confidently, as she unbuckled his pants and smiled up at him seductively. He couldn't take her purposefully slow movements and pulled her head towards his, crashing his lips into hers and palming her thighs with both hands.
Her skirt was off in an instant along with her thong and then it was finally her turn to strip him of his remaining clothing. He flipped her over so that he was on top of her, as much as he enjoyed her being in control, he preferred her writhing underneath him much more.
He examined her naked form hungrily, taking in every inch of her body as she trembled from his gaze.
"You're so fucking beautiful, wifey" he whispered and she blushed, "you're blushing just makes me harder."
"So you get off on my embarrassment?" she breathed. she was feeling so sure of this, like they were made to do this, she felt confident and it just made her happy and feel like she was having the time of her life.
"Everything you do turns me on." he growled whilst staring intently into her eyes.
"Everything?" she whispered, she was dripping wet now and hearing him say that just made her feel so beautiful. She couldn't believe that she was responsible for turning him on, she had known that he was into the prospect of having sex with her, but now she was sure that he wanted her just as badly as she wanted him.
"The look on your face when I walked in on you tonight....it was priceless...so hot." he chuckled.
"I hate you!" she purred, of course she didn't actually hate him, she was just angry at him for making fun of her.
"I'll tell you what...I wont tease you about it...if....you let me watch them....all...with you?" he knew he was pushing his luck but it was worth a try.
"What!" she gasped, on one hand she was really horny and wanted him inside her but the fact that he had brought up the topic of the sex tapes just made her want to punish him.
"We can both watch the tapes, together and 'get tips' it seemed to help you, with your confidence and trying new things, like being in control" he drawled.
She felt as though she should be pushing him away and wiping that smug smile right off his face, but she had never been so turned on in her life, with him edging closer to her centre whilst they spoke caused her to loose her senses. She would give into any demand he made right now just to get him to take her and give her release. So she nodded, "ok, ok, just please...hurry, I cant wait any longer" he smirked at her as she grabbed his thighs and tried to pull him closer but he held his position firmly.
"What do you want?" he whispered into her ear. He was so hard for her and was desperate to bury himself inside her, but he could see how dark with lust her eyes had become and he was dying to hear her tell him that she wanted him.
"Release...now...please" she pleaded, she knew she would regret begging him once they were done, but right now she just needed release.
"You want me?" he asked, hovering above her closely.
"Yes, ....please.....now!" she was demanding now and gripping onto him tightly digging her nails into his thighs. He ravished her mouth with his knowing how thirsty she was to feel him where she needed him most, but he was willing to make her wait.
"Who am I?", there was just one more thing he wanted to hear from her.
"Your Chuck! Now just get on with it!" she panted as she tried to pull him closer. He hadn't moved an inch so she took the initiative and wrapped her small hand around his member stroking and pulling frantically. He almost came right there and then because her bold movement had surprised him he had already been trying so hard to keep it together and stay collected. He allowed her to stroke him as she built up his eagerness but then he suddenly remembered that she hadn't given him the answer he needed so he pulled her hand away and pinned both her hands above her head before attacking her lips and her neck, he even gave her some payback by using his free hand to tease the most sensitive spot between her legs, edging close to her centre but then repeatedly pulling back as her moans grew and tears threatened to spill from her eyes as she clenched them shut tightly.
"Wrong answer dear wife. Who. Am. I?" Her eyes flew open and then she suddenly knew what he wanted her to say so she bit her lip and couldn't hold the answer back, she needed release.
"Husband...you're my HUSBAND!" she almost screamed the last word out because he had plunged into her with so much force her eyes threatened to pop out.
"Your damn right I am!"
Good? Bad? Sorry if it was to sexed-up!
