Fair Is Fair
A/N: Blair asks a favor prior to the academy. I ask the favor of a happy challenge next time. :-)
"I want you to do it."
"Shit, Chief -- you've got to be kidding!"
"Would I kid? I want you to do it."
"It just seems right. It should be you... it's personal."
"I don't think I can."
"If it doesn't come out right I can have it professionally finished."
"No, I mean I don't think I can."
He looked almost sick at the idea. Good -- he's not alone.
"I need you to do this for me."
"Why?" His eyes pleaded with mine. "Is it punishment?"
"No." Yes. No. "Yes. I don't know."
"I've forced you into this, and you want me to feel the pain?"
"Would it be pain?"
"God Blair, your hair is, god, it's always been part of who you are... how can I cut it?"
"How can I cut it? But it's got to be done, and I want you to do it. There's no escaping it now -- we're in this together, I'm taking this step for you, so I need you to do this for me."
"Fair is fair?"
"Something like that. Besides, it's only hair, it's dead, it's not really me." Yeah, right.
A big sigh. "Alright. You win."
