"Yeah, we're prety clever."
::He grinned and picked up both their plates and walked into the kitched.::
::She followed Nate into the kitchen and put her plate down::
"I'll be right back"
::She kissed his cheek and then turned and walked towards the bathroom. This was a process Blair was used to. It had been going on at every meal/snack/nervous situation since she was 12. She walked into the bathroom, shutting the door lightly behind her, she pulled a clip out of her purse and pulled her long dark hair back behind her ears, clipping it before kneeling on the ground::
::Nate rinsed the plates and left them in the sink, the housekeeper would take care of them in the morning. He walked back towards his bedroom, and heard a weird sound from the bathroom. He knocked gently and opened the door.::
"Blair, are you ok?"
::He looked and saw her head over the toilet.::
"What... what are you doing?"
::Blair quickly jumped to her feet, wiping her mouth with a tissue::
"I wasn't feeling good"
::He shook his head.::
"No, Blair. I saw.. I saw your finger down your throat."
::Blair answered immediatly::
"Sometimes it just, helps to...get it out. You know?"
::Even though she thought she was making sense, she was positive Nate knew her well enough to know if she was lying or not::
::he didn't believe her. He walked closer to her and grabbed her hand.::
"Blair, you know that I know you better than that. Why would you do this yourself?"
"Nate- its not what you think it is.."
::She hated lying to him. But what else was she supposed to do. No one knew about this, and she wasn't about to let him know::
::He brushed away some of her hair.::
"No, I know what it is. My cousin had it. It's ok, but Blair- you're better than this. You're beautiful."
::Tears were streaming down her face:: "No Nate, I'm not."
::He kissed a tear away.::
"I wouldn't lie to you. You're the most beautiful girl in New York City. Hell, the world. You don't need to do this. It's not attractive, I mean- puking is not sexy."
"Nate its not something I can just change. I need to do it"
::She walked over to the sink and splashed water on her face, lookin at her reflection in the mirror::
::He went and rubbed his hand on her back.::
"I'll help you. You don't need to do it, but I know it'll be hard to stop."
::She didn't like to be weak and need other people to help her::
"I'll be fine"
::She leaned over the counter and put her head in her hands::
"So much for sex tonight" ::she mumbled quietly. As soon as she said it she wish she hadn't. maybe he didnt hear her::
::He grabbed her gently by the shoulders and turned her so she faced him and spoke firmly.::
"This isn't fine. If you won't change for yourself, please, change for me."
::He had heard her mumble something about sex, but it wasn't important to him. Sure, he wanted to sleep with Blair, but he wanted her to be healthy.::
