Chair Tales S02E15- The Wedding Fate
THIS IS A SPECIAL LONG EPISODE, BECAUSE IT's THE WEDDING DAY!!!
...The wedding has arrived and everything is chaos, but in a good way.
Serena/Dan's house is already full of people, all helping Serena get ready.
Blair is the maid of honour and is Serena's sidekick for the day. Blair has of course been living at Serena's house since her and Chuck broke up.
Chuck has already made plans to leave New Haven after the wedding is over. He would have left immediately but doesn’t want to let Dan down sa pamamagitan ng refusing to be his best man and not attending the wedding. Dan is the only person Chuck has spoken to, other than his argument with Serena in the morning. Dan hasn't mention the "Blair" word to Chuck since straight after the break up because Chuck didn't want to talk about it.
Blair has been practically depressed, the break up has really destroyed her, especially since she was pregnant and was certain that the baby was Chuck's, even though there was a little doubt in her mind. She just wanted to rewind everything and make it all go away. But she has put on a happy face for the past araw or two just to make Serena's wedding a good day, she didnt want Serena to be worrying about her on her wedding day.
Blair and Serena are in Serena's dressing room, they have had their make up done sa pamamagitan ng the best, and obviously most famous, make-up artists they could find.
S: Ok....it's time B....im going to put the dress on! (they both get excited)
B: I cant wait to see you in it! Its going to look perfect!
BC(Bridal consultant): ok, why dont you undress so we can get your wedding dress on.
S: Omg.....can we go in the susunod room, i want the dress to be a surprise to Blair!
BC: Sure...ill take the dress in (she picks up the wedding dress and goes into the susunod room)
S: B, this is it...the susunod time you see me ill be a proper bride!
B: (the hug) I know! I cant wait....i cant believe its finally happening!
S: I know (she walks towards the door) Ill see you in a while maid of honour!
Serena leaves and Blair sits down in front of the dressing mesa mirror, just staring at her self for a moment. Serena and Dan...getting married. It was ok for them, they were having the life they always planned, the life they always dreamt of. And her? Her's had fallen apart....what did she have...nothing...just a baby, who would never know it's father. tears started running down her face...she had held them back for too long, she just allowed herself to let out a little cry....it should have been one of the best days of her life...but it was the saddest. She knew she'd have to see Chuck again today, she had seen him when he came over in the morning but he had barely looked at her, at the wedding it would be the first time they would properly see each other since the break up...she'd have to be in the same place as him...would he even look at her, would he talk to her...what would happen? Just then the Bridal Consultant entered the dressing room so Blair quickly wiped her face dry before turning around and seeing Serena walk in, the most beautiful bride she had ever seen, luckily Blair could let a few madami tears escape and pretend they were tears of joy. She raced up to Serena who was beaming of delight.
B: Omg...S...you look amazing....its the most beautiful dress ever! (they hug)
S: B...dont cry...you'll make me start!...(Blair wipes her face once more) its so beautiful Blair...the dress...I cant wait to see Brooklyn’s face when he sees me in this dress!
B: Omg! You called him Brooklyn! That’s my nickname for him! (they both laugh)
S: I couldn't help it, and i knew it would make you laugh!
B: (giggles) I know, i cant wait to see his face either! He will die!

Later on that day. At the Church.
It's the wedding.
All the guests are patiently sitting in their seats, Dan is awaiting the arrival of his bride, standing patiently susunod to Chuck and Eric at the Altar.
D: What time is it?
C: Dont worry Humphrey...she'll be here.
D: She's late. (gets agitated) what if she's having segundo thoughts?
C: Patience lonely boy....it's typical of the Bride to be late to her wedding...typical of Serena.
D: They should be here sa pamamagitan ng now!
Just then the doors ugoy open and all the guest turn their heads back to look, no one can be seen yet. Dan and Chuck watch closely.
Then Blair appears, looking stunning. Her hair curly with a maroon diamanté headband, a maroon dress (go to my pictures on my bista sa tagiliran page to see a picture of the dress Blair would be wearing).
She was beautiful. There was no other word for it...absolutely perfect...She caught Chucks eye....it was inevitable that he would go weak at the knees. She was meant to be his. That woman standing there, the one everybody was looking at, she was meant to be his. It only took a segundo for their eyes to meet. She looked for him the moment the doors opened...she saw him watching her before he quickly looked away. Why did he look away? For a moment it was as though they were strangers to each other, only a few feet of distance between them but really they were worlds apart. She couldn't cry, not here, in front of everyone...just then she was joined sa pamamagitan ng Jenny, and two of the other bridesmaids, both Serena's mga kaibigan from college. They stood behind ( go to my bista sa tagiliran page, pictures to see what the bridesmaid's including jenny would be wearing), and Blair, standing in front, led them towards the altar, slowly, with bouquets in hand.
They were face to face...standing directly opposite each other. Chuck was avoiding her line of sight, hoping he could just pretend she wasn't there. The dress she was wearing did a good job at hiding the baby bump, but from up close it was obvious she was pregnant. But he didn't care, it wasn't his baby, and she wasn't his either. Luckily the pianist interrupted his thoughts, as the music for the bride’s entrance began to play. It was then that the bride appeared. Lilly arrived first and then Serena swayed in behind her and took her mother's hand. She was enchanting, the dress was beautiful and looked perfect on her (again, go to the pictures on my bista sa tagiliran page to see what her wedding dress would be like!). Dan almost did die at the sight of her. Chuck let out a little laugh at Dan's exclamation after seeing his beautiful bride, "Bass, hold me, I think im going to faint".
Everyone’s eyes were on Serena who was being led up the isle sa pamamagitan ng her mother. It was a magical moment.
* * * * * * *
Later on that araw at the Wedding reception.
The boys, Lilly and Jenny are having a chat over drinks.
D: It has been the best araw of my life and i know its only going to get better.
C: Well...most first timers say that...maybe you should ask Lilly for payo of how to survive a marriage...
L: (nudges Chuck who is standing susunod to her) Charles! You little devil! if you must know, i already have ibingiay them that advice! (they all laugh)
R(Rufus): Yeah, Just dont end up like your parents...(they all laugh)
C: Dont end up like any of our parents! (he laughs)
Blair approaches them.
B: Hi, .....have any of you seen my mother? (As soon as Blair opens her mouth to speak, Chuck puts down his drink and walks off)
L: No dear, sorry, have you tried the ladies room?
B: Umm... (Watches Chuck walking away) no...i guess i should try there.
Blair walks off towards the ladies room, Dan follows after Chuck and catches up with him.
D: uy man...off somewhere?
C: I was just getting a drink, you want one?
C: (Picks up two glasses from a passing waiters tray, hands one to Dan) So you had fun last night? I've never seen you so drunk.
D: Yeah, from what i remember, it was probably the craziest night of my life....thanks.
C: It's a pleasure, you deserved it, all these years of being a good guy, one night of being bad may have done you some good!
D: Ok...well maybe we should just keep last night to ourselves then! Between the boys.
C: Well after today you wont have to worry about that...like i said, im leaving.
D: (is taken aback) Your really leaving?
C: Yeah. tonight. Wherever the plane takes me, i have an open ticket.
D: I thought you were just angry...i didnt think you were really going to leave.
C: I only stayed to fulfil my duty of being your best man, tonight im leaving.
D: New York?
C: Maybe...some day...right now i dont really know where im going...and it's best if you dont either...i dont want anyone finding me. New place, new people, new life.
D: Look man...whatever happened, does it really matter? You pag-ibig her.
C: I dont pag-ibig anyone.
D: But you pag-ibig her....and she loves you.
C: Dont care...look...me and you, we've had this weird pag-ibig hate relationship, but ever since we came here to New Haven, we've grown up a lot and you've been a good friend to me....thats why i stayed for the wedding, but dont think you can stop me from leaving tonight. no one can. Anyway. It's getting late so i should probably go...
D: What now? We haven't had the photographer in yet.
C: Umm..i think i'll pass on that, I dont really belong in your photos.
D: Of course you do!
C: No, im leaving now. (offers a handshake) take care Humphrey.
D: You're not going to say bye to Serena?
C: She waved bye to me the moment she turned her back on me. (still has his hand out) so this is it...you wont see me again.
D: (shakes his hand and then they hug quickly) your making a mistake.
C: Good luck in life. (Proceeds to walk off)
D: We can fix this! (Chuck looks back but then turns away and carries on walking off)
Later on Dan finds Serena.
S: uy honey...my husband! (she puts her arms around his neck and kisses him)
D: Hey...Chuck is leaving.
S: What do you mean? I know he sinabi he wanted to leave...
D: No, he's really leaving...for certain...tonight.
S: Look, he'll probably be back soon, and if not we should probably just give him puwang and then get in touch after a while and try and get him to come back.
D: No, Serena...he's leaving for good. This is serious. He didn't tell me where he was going.
S: He's going to New York.
D: No, your not listening...he is not going to New York...he is not coming back, he doesn't want to see us again, he's leaving for good, it really is over this time...he's gone, we wont see him again.
B: See who again? (Blair has overheard the last part of the conversation)
S: (looks at Dan) ummm...Blair...
D: Chuck...he's gone.
B: Gone? What do you mean.
D: He's got a plane ticket for tonight...he's leaving and never coming back. We wont see him again.
B: (swallows back a lump in her throat) where.... is he going?
D: He didn't say...he doesn't want anyone to know....Blair...He's leaving tonight...
B: So...it's probably for the best...excuse me..(she walks off)
D: She didn't mean that...(looks at Serena) She didnt mean it.
S: Dan...i dont know what to do anymore....maybe we should just let go...hey...it's our wedding day...we should be having fun!
D: (nods his head) I know i haven't always been a big Chuck fan....or a Blair tagahanga for that matter...but he could have left the araw they broke up...but he stayed to be my best man...me, asking him to be my best man, it meant a lot to him, it probably made him feel wanted, like someone actually needed him, they always say it's an honour to be asked to be someone’s best man, because out of all the people you know you chose only one, it must have made him feel special....like he was important to us...me, you, Blair, Chuck...we were like a family.
S: I know...but things change....Chuck has made his choice...we should respect that. Maybe he really doesn't want to stay.
* * * * * * *
It was time for Dan and Serena to exchange wedding gifts.
They both sit with everyone gathered around, Dan is going first.
D: Ok, so me and Blair went shopping...yes i know...i actually went shopping with Blair...now thats something i wouldn't have imagined in my wildest dreams!
B: Get on with it Brooklyn!
D: Ok...so here goes...Eric can you bring it?
Eric wonders off and then returns with a human sized wrapped up object, Serena rips off the wrapping paper to reveal a large pader painting.
D: Serena, this is a painting of a New York street, at night...if you look closely, you'll see the two of standing (he points to two figures on the painting) well...actually we're kissing.
S: Omg! I dont believe it! It's a painting of our first kiss!
D: Precisely! I wanted to give you something that you could always look at and remember our first kiss...it was such a special moment for me....for us...i want us to remember it for ever.
S: (she hugs him tightly and gets excited) I pag-ibig it! It's beautiful! Dan! I pag-ibig it! Its so...perfect! This is definitely going up on our bedroom wall! (they hug again, everyone else cheers and compliments the painting)
D: Ok so now its your turn...
S: (gets a little embarrassed) Well...mine is a little personal...it's something special...something i've never attempted before in my life...it was only when i met you that i started seeing beauty in things like these (points at the painting) art, poetry...stuff like this is what your made of and i know how much you pag-ibig pagbaba and writing....so i thought id give you something to read...(she takes out a decorated book and tells him to open it)
D: (he reads the inner pamagat page) Poems and memoirs of the life of Dan and Serena. Written sa pamamagitan ng Serena Humphrey...wait...you wrote poetry?
S: Yes...about us and all the different things that have happened in our lives.... that way we can always look back and read about our life...and in the future our children can read about us too. Open the first poem...read it.
D: (he turns the page and reads the poem out loud.) Since the first time I met you,
I couldn't seem to forget you, (he looks at her and smiles)
Neither your coyness nor your innocence
Or your complete lack of confidence (everyone giggles)
I was extrovert, affluent and elite
Living in a posh hotel on 82nd street
Who knew our two worlds would collide
Brooklyn meets the Upper East Side
Our first petsa and that silly wave (Serena, Dan and Jenny laugh)
There was something about you that I began to crave
Your sarcasm and that sense of humour
And the fact that you ignored all the rumours
You didn't care about the reputation I held
Well you did at first, but eventually we gelled
Who knew back then that it would come to this?
A promising future and today's wedding bliss
I still remember the night we first kissed
From then, it was your lips I couldn't resist
And lately I seem to find,
That you're always on my mind.
I feel so happy when I’m around you,
And I thank God that I found you.
And right from the very start,
It was you i held close to my heart.
I'm so glad that we did meet,
For (he pauses) now my life is complete.
So I hope you enjoy this wedding present
And I pray that we live in eternal content
There is silence for a brief moment before Dan holds Serena in his arms.
D: That was the most beautiful poem I’ve ever read and I pag-ibig you so much, (they kiss) I can’t wait to read the rest! (They hug and halik and everyone cheers for them)
They continue to kiss.
* * * * * * * *
The photographer has been and gone, they have taken all their professional mga litrato and now Eric and Jenny have their own camcorder and are making their own video. They approach Blair who is sitting with some wine drinking.
J: Hey...isn't alcohol bad for the baby?
E: (filming her baby bump) Yeah, you should cut back on that. (he and Jenny giggle)
B: (stands up and slams the glass down) Why doesn't everyone just leave me alone! (Storms off)
Blair passes Dan and Serena on her way out, Dan grabs her arm.
D: He'll be leaving for the airport soon.... you can stop him. (Long silence)
B: (almost in tears) What if i don’t get tahanan in time?
D: Eric can drive you there now...ill go get him (he goes to get Eric)
B: S...i don’t know what to say to him (cries in Serena's arms)
S: Hey, just tell him you dont want him to go, tell him how you feel.
B: He wont forgive me.
S: There's no harm in trying.
E: Someone need a ride? (Dan and Eric return)
D: Take Blair home, go...now.
Blair and Eric rush to Blair's house to stop Chuck from leaving.
Once The car has parked up at Blair's house, Eric walks her to the door.
E: I'll wait outside for you.
B: Thanks for bringing me here, but you don’t have to wait.
E: Are you sure?
B: Yeah, thanks a lot...you should probably get back to your sisters wedding...i'll see you soon.
E: Good Luck.
Eric returns to the car and Blair opens the front door. She hadn't been tahanan since the break up but luckily the code to get in was still the same. It was dark inside. All the lights switched off. She had the worst feeling that he had already left and that she was wasting her time here when she could have gone straight to the airport and stopped him in time. She went into the lounge, it was the only room that had the light switched on. He had to be in there. She walked in. Empty? Not quite.
There was an envelope on the table. She walked over to the mesa and picked it up. "For Blair" it read. She immediately ripped it open and began reading... I remember when our pag-ibig story first began. The first thing that i thought was, she's the one...i've found her...but i'll never get her.
I was Chuck Bass, everyone's idea of a failure...even you couldn't face being in pag-ibig with me.
You were too good for me and I was too wrong for you but that was exactly why we were perfect for each other. We went through things that most couples would never go through, but we got through nevertheless and i thought it only made us stronger.
Yes i made mistakes, many of them that will stay with me for the rest of my life when i blame myself for being the underlying reason why it ended so badly.
The person I am today is a whole different person to the one you met in high school, i changed for you, for us. Yet you could never see that, you still made those traditional accusations against me, neglect, conceit, heartlessness, unfaithfulness...
I took it all,. because i loved you. I really did.
But now, i dont think I could ever look at you again...you were the unfaithful one. Your insecurities will always lead you away from me. It's like history repeating itself...you accuse me of cheating so you make up for it sa pamamagitan ng being unfaithful yourself. But this time amnesia wont make me forget this...nothing can. What you have done is unforgivable.
It was only last week that i was looking pasulong to having a baby with you, but now it makes me sick to even think that i considered that thing my child...not only do i hate the fact that your having that scum’s child, i hate the fact that you could have looked at another guy whilst i was with you, how you could have found comfort and pag-ibig in arms that didn't belong to me, how you could have shared a kama with someone else and slept with him! How you had the audacity to continue a relationship with this guy and pretend that everything was smooth sailing between us, how you lied through your teeth about me being the father, how you could go on and live sa pamamagitan ng my side when you were with this other guy...we planned things for the baby...you made out like it was the best thing to ever happen to us...acted as if there was nothing going on! When the whole bloody time it wasn't even mine! You weren't even mine, i've been sharing you with some other guy!
The thing that hurts me the most is that i thought my life was complete. Everything seemed to be falling into place. I finally had you and i thought we were having a baby...you were the only person who meant anything to me in this world...i had never put as much effort into anything as much as i had put into our relationship, i dont know what i did to deserve such pain.
But i give up on trying...i give up on everything...im leaving everything...i dont care about the house, the business, you. I dont care any more, .im leaving for good this time and you'll never see me again. You can have your stupid fling and his baby...if thats what you want then go ahead and have it, i wont hold you back an longer. This time it really is over.
Just remember one thing Blair, we had something real…something neither of us will ever have again with anyone else...one araw you'll look back at this and wish that you still had me…but i'll never look back, Chuck bass as you know him, is no more. You wont find me, so dont bother trying to contact me or look for me because as far as i am concerned, you and that baby of yours are dead to me.
She was in momentary shock...the final words of his letter kept ringing in her ears...she could almost hear his voice saying those words to her..."your dead to me"...she fell to the floor, she could hardly breathe. It really was over. He was gone. For good. She let out a cry but it wasn't enough, it didn’t make her feel any better...she screamed and cried all at the same time, it was the worst feeling she had ever felt...she had Nawawala him.
Luckily Eric had figured that Chuck might have already left for the airport and was expecting Blair to run back outside and need a ride there, he didn’t expect to hear the screams he could hear now. He raced into the house looking for Blair. He found her, lying on the floor motionless. He quickly sat on the floor susunod to her lifting her up.
Her face was red, she had stopped herself from crying but when she saw Eric she couldn't help but cry some more, he didn’t know what to do, he had no idea what was going on with her and Chuck, so he just held her to in his arms and tried to comfort her while she just cried. END SCENE sorry about any mistakes, spelling errors etc...i kinda rushed posting this!
Cried herself to sleep...
