Its the final day of filming. The GG gang are filming the last few of the wedding scenes and the atmosphere is really good but emotional as the cast know it's their last day together before their holidays.
Hanging around....Off Set! Aaawww!
They have just filmed Chuck's wedding speech and are taking their lunch break.
Leighton and Ed have eaten their lunch and are standing around on set talking.
L: Hey let me know if you see Seb, he said he was coming today but he's not here yet.
E: Ever heard of a phone...you can use it to contact someone to find out where they are.
L: (laughs) Well i dont have it with me do I! its in my locker.
E: So i think you really bruised me when Blair kicked Chuck for that scene.
L: Really! Let me see...(she looks down at his leg as he lifts up his trouser leg)
E: Is it bruised? You kicked me hard!
L: No its not...and i didnt even kick you hard! but even if i did i had to make it look realistic didnt i?!
E: Not that realistic! Not as realistic as im going to make our kiss look!
L: Blair and Chuck's kiss...well that would have to be realistic...wouldn't want to disappoint the fans!
E: Im going to bite your tongue!
L: (she nudges him) No! you wouldn't! I'll scream!
E: (they laugh) ill make it really sloppy.
L: Ed you cant! its supposed to be romantic!
E: Its Blair and Chuck...romantic comes with the territory.
L: Exactly so dont ruin the kiss!
E: Obviously i wont ruin it for the final take, but before that i'll bite you.
L: (she shoves him again as he just laughs, she twists his arm) No! I'm not gonna talk to you!
E: You have to...your coming to England with me remember!
L: (she stops twisting his arm) Oh....about that....im not sure i was serious about it...
E: What do you mean....you dont want to come?
L: No, it's not that i dont want to....im just not sure if i can...
E: Oh....ok....well that's fine....dont worry about it...it would've been fun though.
L: I know! I would like to come...
E: Then whats stopping you?
L: Im....not so sure that Seb would like it.
E: Oh....so boyfriend dictates what you do then?
L: (short silence) Fine....i'll come....but book the tickets fast before i change my mind!
E: Ok i cant book them now so you cant change your mind after i bite your tongue! (they start play fighting again)
L: Ed No! I'll kick you and break your leg if you bite me! It hurts if your tongue gets bitten!
E: Well you started it! You kicked me first!
L: Well i misjudged the force of my kick i apologise!
E: Fine then you can massage my leg instead.
L: What..in public? No way!
L: promise not to bite me.
E: (he leans his head towards her) I promise (he then snaps his mouth to mimic a bite and they both laugh) I'll give you the best kiss you've ever had!
They continue talking until they are ushered back on set to resume filming.
When they do finally film the Chuck/Blair kiss scene, Ed keeps his promise, he does indeed deliver one of the best kisses Chuck/Blair fans have seen!
after the kiss when the director cuts, Ed again snaps his mouth in Leighton's face to mimic a bite and they both have a laughing fit, everyone is baffled as to what they are laughing at but they dont tell anyone...
Later that day.
Everyone is saying their final goodbyes.
They are at the trailer parks and everyone has their things ready to go.
Leighton sees Sebastian approaching, she shouts his name and he walks over to her, everyone else is also standing there.
L: Omg! Seb what happened! Your so late! (they hug and he kisses her on her cheek)
S: Hey babe, im sorry, i got caught up in traffic and then ive been trying to get in but security wouldn't let me.
E: (sarcastically) Im surprised they didnt recognise you as an actor...
S: Ummm...(isnt sure whether that was an insult or not) Ye whatever...Leigh im sorry, i would have been here earlier if i could have (he kisses her on the lips)
L: It's ok...we're all getting ready to leave now...(she turns to the other one by one to say goodbye...she turns to Ed) Hey....ummm i guess i'll speak to you later then..
E: Ye...i'll let you know what happens with the tickets (he purposely says that loud enough for everyone to hear)
L: (she gives him a look to say shut up! Then whispers) Ed!
S: tickets for what?
E: oh you haven't told him? Sorry for opening my mouth!
L: (grabs sebs arm an drags him away) ok Ed thanks ill take it from here!
L: ummm well basically i wanted to go to London and coincidently Ed is going there for the holidays...so he said he'd take me...its the perfect opportunity...ive always wanted to go there! You dont mind do you?
S: ummm i dont know, i thought we could...spend the holidays together.
L: i thought you said you were going to be busy?
S: well i would have had days off.
L: aaw im really sorry...i should have asked you first. (she cuddles him) we can do something special when i get back. Ok?
A Week Later.
Ed and Leighton have began their journey to England. Leighton insisted that she didnt mind staying at his family's home instead of at a hotel so they decide to go to Stevenage, Hertfordshire to Ed's family home, where his parents and younger 19 year old brother live. He also has an older brother who is married and lives in his own house. (these facts are not entirely true!)
They finally arrive at Stanstead airport. They are dressed very casually with big sun glasses and hoodies in an attempt not to get recognised.
Luckily they dont!
Once they arrive 'home' later that day, they are greeted by Eds family. They eventually have dinner and chat, with Ed's parents telling Leighton embarrassing stories about Ed's childhood.
They eventually decide to go to bed after planning what to do and where to go over the next few days.
Another week later.
Ed's mother has volunteered to take Leighton shopping for the day while the boys have...a boys day out.
Its the evening and Ed's mother (i should really use her name...Carole) is watching telly with Leighton.
C: so, what do you think of my boy then? He's a real catch dont you think?
L: (she looks away and giggles) im sure he is...umm we're good friends, hes a great guy.
C: oh, yes he said you were in a relationship with someone.
L: umm yeh, i am. His name is Sebastian.
C: So is this boy nice then?
L: ye, he's great. And he really likes me. He's cute, funny, kind and charming!
C: but he cant be as charming as my Ed.
L: (she smiles) aaw, well every mother thinks her child is better than everyone else!
C: i didn't say he was better than everyone else, just that he would be better than anyone you'll meet in your lifetime. (they both smile, Leighton is slightly confused), he thinks very highly of you. (Leighton smiles) when he lived here, he had! this girlfriend, he would never bring her home, he would never bring any of his friends home, other than his band mates. He likes to keep his family separate to his social life. Thats why i was surprised that he was bringing you on this trip home.
L: umm...well we were going to stay at a hotel at first...
C: well im glad i got to meet you, and you're welcome here anytime. You obviously mean a lot to him.
L: (gets embarrassed) really? We've not known each other very long.
C: well my husband and i only knew each other for 3 months before we were sure we were in love so im sure the year that you've known Ed is enough for you to become good friends!
L: (smiles) i guess. Well we're a tight bunch, me, Ed and the others, we do spend a lot of time together.
Just then the front door is slammed open and Ed and his brother, Jess, are heard coming in, shouting and arguing.
Carole walks to where the boys are standing, Leighton follows.
C: oi, hey cut it out! (she sees blood on Eds clothes, he is holding tissue to his face covered in blood) oh my lord! Ed what happened?
J: it was a fight.
C: oh lord, Ed cant you stay out of trouble! Let me see your face!
E: it weren't my fault ok! I was sticking up for him!
J: i never asked you to!
E: oh so you expected me to stand there and watch you get battered?!
C: oh just look at your face Edward! Leighton there's a fist aid in that pantry, could you fetch it please darling?
J: look, so what you beat him up anyway what difference does it make if you got hurt in the process?!
E: (shoves jess) well maybe next time you can join in rather than standing there!
C: Ed what kind of an example are you setting?!
E: he needs to learn how to defend himself!
C: and you need to learn how to stay out of trouble! Hold your chin up.
E: (laughs) i dont believe this, i was bloody defending him how can you give me grief over that! You know what just forget it. Its late, im tired and im going to bed! (storms off up the stairs angrily)
J: at least let mum check out if you broke your nose.
E: FUCK OFF!
J: (to the girls) whoa ok, he sounds pretty pissed off! My job here is done!
L: umm is he going to be ok? Maybe i should take the fist aid kit and see if he's ok?
C: im not so sure, he was very angry...you could go if you want. Take this (hands the kit to her)
Leighton heads upstairs. Ed is already in bed under the covers wearing only his boxer shorts. He is still holding tissue to his nose. She turns on his bedside lamp and sits on his bed.
L: sit up. Let me see.
She takes the tissue out of his hand and he eventually sits up, watching her the whole time. She smiles at him.
L: i come in peace (she giggles, he forces a smile)
She takes some cotton wool and uses antiseptic to clean his wound carefully as he grits his teeth to hide the stinging pain.
L: im sorry i know it probably hurts, but i have to clean it, it could get infected otherwise.
E: it doesnt hurt.
But of course, it did hurt, he just wanted to seem tough in front of her.
He watched her as she put pressure on his nose to stop the bleeding. He was glad that she was there. Just to comfort him, make him feel better. After the blood stopped she wiped his face clean again and cleared away the mess. He laid back down in his bed. She thought she'd let him sleep, he'd clearly had a bad day.
She gave him a kiss on his forehead.
L: goodnight...i'll see you tomorrow.
E: ...dont go....stay. (he takes hold of her arm and moves onto one end of his bed, indicating for her to join him)
She knew he probably just needed some comfort, a hug maybe. She smiled and slid under his covers and into his arms. It was warm, nice, they both felt good.
E: im sorry for getting angry in front of you downstairs.
L: its fine, there's nothing wrong with showing your emotions.
E: i dont usually get into fights, ive grown up from that...this was a one off.
L: i know...like you said...you were just protecting your brother.
E: exactly...and i would do anything to protect the people i care about.
L: are you in any pain? Remember i still owe you a massage!
E: oh yeah...that will definitely cheer me up!
They giggle, Leighton sits up on the bed on top of his thighs.
L: what do you want me to massage...and no where rude! !
E: oh! Whats the point then! (they laugh)
L: Ed! Seriously now, Where?
E: ok...my back.
He turns over and she sits on the bed to his side. She begins to massage his back. He starts to make weird noises, like groans and moans, just to annoy her.
L: Ed! Sssh! What are you doing!
He carries on moaning.
L: Ed! Everyone can probably hear you!
E: i know. (he laughs)
L: it sounds like your making sex noises! Shut up!
E: (he laughs) thats the whole point!
L: no! Your mad! I wont carry on unless you stop it!
E: fine! Ill stop enjoying it then!
L: you were enjoying it?
She climbs on top of him and continues to massage him.
E: yep. Arent you?
L: its just a massage Ed.
He doesnt respond.
Around 15 mins later.
E: hey... You can stop now... You must be tired.
She gets off him and he turns around.
E: come here...(she lies back down and moves towards him.) your hands must be tired (he holds and kisses her hands) i owe you a massage now.
L: not tonight.
E: another time then?
They smile at each other and then just look at each other for a while.
E: Thanks...for being here...my day hasn't been that bad after all.
L: (she smiles) im glad your ok...
Ed leans his head towards her. His lips are almost touching hers...their eyes locked. She can feel his warm breath teasing her lips...then she suddenly remembers...Seb.
She looks away...manoeuvres slightly away from him...he also turns away. He was close..but not close enough...
E: you should probably turn off the lamp.
After a few minutes or so he cant resist but to at least hold her. He takes his chances and moves towards her, puts his arm over her. She was waiting for him to do this. She turned towards him and hugged him back as he wrapped his legs around her and kissed her shoulder and then her neck, but he didnt dare risk going any further than that, so he just held her, grateful that she was there. With him.
To be continued...
