Passing period in Oakdale High school.
Blair: (walking down hallway, talking to Melanie) So I keep getting these little love notes, and I don’t know who they’re from. They show up in my locker at least once a day.
Melanie: That’s creepy.
Blair: That’s what I thought at first. But they’re actually cute! I think he really likes me Mel.
Melanie:(sarcastically) Well why don’t we go to your locker right now and check. Maybe your mystery man has left you another love letter.
At Blair’s locker
Blair: (opening her locker, a slip of paper, Blair gasps) Oh my gosh! Look!
Melanie: Hurry, pick it up and read what it says!
Blair: (Reaches down to grab the note and slowly unfolds it) “Your eyes are so bright, they shine like a light. Warm is your heart, and so is your smile. If you’d get to know me, I’d stay for a while. Please give me a chance, meet me at the dance. I can’t wait to see those beautiful eyes looking into mine.”
Melanie: This is awk. Who does he think he is? Well are you going to go?
Blair: I think it’s sweet...I don’t know if I’ll go, but I do want to know who it is (looks away with a smile)
Chuck: (Coming up behind Blair and Melanie) Hey you two. Going to the dance this Saturday?
Melanie: Actually- (interrupted by the bell)
Chuck: Oh no! I can’t get detention again! I’ll see you guys later (sprints to class).
Blair: (gathers her books from the locker) I better get to class now too.
Melanie: Blair, didn’t you hear that? It’s totally Chuck.
Blair: What?? No! No way. It can’t be.
Melanie: You can only hope. I mean, c’mon, Chuck? You’re so lucky!
Blair: Don’t be ridiculous. (shaking head and looking down)
Nate walks by.
Melanie: Look at that nerd. He’s totally checking you out.
Blair: (looks up and catches Nate’s eye, smiles and waves) Oh Nate! Wait up, let’s walk to class together. (rolls her eyes at Melanie) I’ll see you later.
Lunch time at Oakdale High School. Blair and Melanie are sitting under a tree.
Melanie: Did you watch that episode of Gossip Girl last night?
Blair: No, I missed it. Too much homework.
Melanie: That’s unfortunate. It was good.
Chuck runs up.
Melanie: Hey Chuck, why are you running? You’re always running.
Chuck: Getting ready for the game this Friday.
Blair: Oh yeah- we’re playing Jackson High, right?
Chuck: (smiles at Blair) yeah, and you’ll be there to cheer me on, right? (winks)
Blair: (blushes) of course. We have a new cheer for you guys. Ya’ll better win.
Oh I forgot! I have to go make up a test for Ms. Leon. I’ll see you guys later.
Chuck: So, you never gave me an answer. Are you going to the dance?
Blair: I actually haven’t decided yet. No date, ya know?
Chuck: Oh really? (pulls out rose from backpack) Wellllll, I was wondering if maybe you would do me the honor of being my date?
Blair: Oh my gosh, really? I would love to! (grinning)
Chuck and Blair hug
Chuck: I’m so glad you said yes. It’s going to be so much fun! (smiling)
Chuck: Let’s go, I’ll walk you to class.
Exit Blair and Chuck.
The dining room, Blair and her family are having dinner.
Blair’s mom: (talking to Blair) How was school today?
Blair: It was strange- but a really good kind of strange. I got another note from my secret admirer today, but now I’m not so sure it’s a secret anymore. Chuck asked me to the dance at lunch. I think he’s writing me the notes and he’s going to ask me out at the dance.
Blair’s mom: Chuck Trout? The captain of the football team? I had lunch with his mother yesterday. Chuck seems like a really nice kid. I didn’t know he was such a sweetheart, too!
Blair’s dad: (walking out of the kitchen) You gals are just jumping to conclusions. I’ve learned a long time ago it’s best not to assume anything.
Blair: But Dad, it’s pretty obvious. I’ve even heard rumors that he’s had a crush on me since freshman year!
Blair’s dad: I’m just saying- be careful Blair. You don’t want to be disappointed if things don’t turn out the way you expect them to.
Blair: Why can’t you just let me be happy? Gosh! (Blair storms off into her room)
Blair’s mom: (sighs) It’ll be alright. She’ll get over it. I’ll take her shopping for a dress tomorrow, and it’ll be a fabulous night. You’ll see.
Blair in her room, talking to her cat Dorota.
Blair: Oh Dorota.I really want Chuck to like me. But what if it isn’t him? What if Dad’s right? Well then, that’d mean it’d still have to be someone else... but who? I can’t think of anyone who pays any special attention to me in class. I don’t even talk to any other boys in class- I mostly keep to myself. Oh Dorota, what do I do?!
(Blair crawls into bed and falls asleep)
Chemisty class the next day
Blair: (sitting down next to Nate) Hey Nate, did you do the homework?
Nate: Yeah, need some help?
Blair: Yeah, you should definitely let me just copy you. (smiling)
Nate: Oh.... sure. (hands Blair paper)
Blair: Thank you so much. You’re a lifesaver. (Blair turns to walk away)
Nate: Hey Blair?
Nate: Um.... Are you, uhh? Going to the dance this weekend?
Blair: Yeah I am! Chuck asked me yesterday. What about you, are you going?
Nate: Oh... uh I was thinking about it. But I’m still not sure.
Blair: You should go, it’s going to be so much fun!
Nate: Maybe... I just don’t really know how to dance...
Blair: Oh come on! It’s really easy. I’ll show you if you go.
Nate: I would but...
(Interrupted by teacher): Alright class, calm down! Get to your seats, let’s get started!
Blair smiles at Nate and walks away
