24 Gifts 2011 - Day Two - 'Seduction' Technique (The OC/Gossip Girl, Ryan/Chuck)  
Second day of December and another gift!

Takes place in the 'Beautiful World' universe where Chuck spent a summer in Newport the year before GG's first season and had a 'thing' with Ryan there. This takes place early that summer.

"Do you think I'm an idiot?" Ryan asked when he finally got tired of Chuck's attempts to 'seduce' him.

"I don't know what you're talking about," Chuck replied, attempting to look innocent.

If Ryan wasn't so good at recognizing faux innocence from two years of Marissa and Newport, he might have fallen for it, but as it was, he snorted. "Seriously, do you think I don't know exactly what you're doing?"

"What do you think I'm doing?" Chuck countered.

"One of two options. Either you're trying to humiliate me for something I didn't even do, in which case that ship has long since sailed, or you're trying to piss off Sandy and Kirsten and decided I was the easier target than Seth."

Chuck couldn't help a grin. "Maybe not easier, but less annoying," he acknowledged. "I don't like people looking down on me."

"Then maybe you shouldn't shove your hand up random girls' skirts," Ryan countered. "You never know where they might have been."

"Her type is an interesting diversion between more worthy conquests," Chuck said.

"And you think I'm gonna be your next big conquest?" Ryan asked, letting the mocking tone leach out. "Think again." With that he turned to walk away.

"At least I admit my goal is to use you to piss someone off," Chuck called after him, smirking as Ryan stopped in the doorway. "You know her goal was always to piss off her mother, and now it's to use you as an excuse for the misery she creates for herself."

Ryan hesitated before glancing back. "I'm not her excuse," he said.

"Of course not, I'm imaging all the whispers," Chuck said. "And I certainly didn't over hear her saying that her life would be just fine if you'd never come to town."

"She didn't say that."

"I assure you, she did," Chuck said.

Ryan was still, searching Chuck's face for any hint of a lie, and seeing none. After a moment, he looked away to hide the pain in his eyes. "Go to hell," he said, trying to keep the unease from his tone as he left.

The End

I do hope you guys are enjoying these first two gifts!
