A/N: Hey people! This is my new story and it is based on the song 'These Walls' by Teddy Geiger. If you haven't listened to that song, listen to it, because it's really good! I love it! At the moment, he is my other musical obsession besides Fall Out Boy. So, there's a little mixture there. Some alternative/rock and some pop. I like to mix it up! The only thing I don't really like music wise is Country and Rap, but I'm pretty open to anything else. Ok, but you wanna know about the story right? Not my musical tastes. Ok, so here's your well written summary. Much better than the one on the outside! Lol.
Summary: Rory went to Chilton where she met the extra cocky, arrogant ass we like to call Tristan DuGrey. He rendered her 'his Mary.' She hated him at first, but the more he pursued her, the more she fell. Tristan become her boyfriend and the first guy she had sex with. She loved him, until he cheated. Now she's at Yale, starting her Sophmore year. During Freshamn year, she met her new best friend Logan Huntzberger and his stoogie friends that go by Colin and Finn. Her roomates are Paris and Steph. Logan is still a bit of a playboy, even though he is pretty much in love with Rory. She is completely naive to this concept and is denying any feelings she may be having towards her best friend. But when her past comes back to haunt her in the form of Tristan, will she go back to who she first loved, or will she go for something with a certain other blonde boy with the gorgeous chocolate eyes? Read and find out!
Disclaimer: I still own nothing! You guys should know this by now! Lol.
Rory Gilmore walked into her dorm room that she shared with her roomates Paris Geller and Stephanie Vanderbuilt, but what she came across shocked her. Neither one of them was there, or had been there. None of their stuff was set up in their rooms, there were no suitcases, there was nothing that belonged to her friends. All that was there was the furniture her grandmother had bought for her and had delivered. She actually expected Stephanie to not be there. She was always late, but Paris? Where was she? She was never late for anything, and she always got to the dorm before anyone else.
"Huh." she said to herself. "I can't believe I'm here before them. Oh well. Might as well unpack." she said as she moved her clothes boxes into her room, unpacked them, and hung the garments in the closet. Deciding she was going to take a break, she grabbed her purse and headed to the coffee cart outside Branford.
She walked up and saw her favorite coffee maker was back and already working. "Hey Joe." she greeted.
"Hey Rory. The usual?" he asked.
"Yes please." she said as she got out her money. She stopped at this particular cart where Joe always worked about three times a day, so he knew her usual was a large coffee with a small amount of milk and two teaspoons of sugar.
"Here ya go." he said as he handed her the cup. She handed him the money and took the coffee from him.
"Thanks Joe. Se ya later." she said as she walked back to her dorm. When she walked in she put her purse on the small kitchenette's counter that was located by the door. "I still can't believe they're not here." she said to herself.
"Talking to yourself again Ace?"
Rory whipped around to her best friend Logan Huntzberger, leaning in her doorway. "Logan!" she squealed as she went to hug him. She had missed him all summer. They had only seen each other about three times. She was in Stars Hollow all the time with her mom, and his parents had made him spend most of the summer in Martha's Vineyard with them. "I missed you so much." she said as she hugged him tightly.
"I missed you too Ace." he said as he hugged her back.
She pulled away slightly and looked him in the eyes. "So, you wanna hang out or do you have to unpack and make sure Finn stay's out of trouble?" she asked.
"Well, I unpacked already, and Colin is handling Finn. I came here, because yes, I would love to hang out with you, and I wanted to ask if you wanna go to the Pub tonight with all of us. I already called Paris and Steph and they're coming." he said as they made their way to the couch and sat down.
"I would love to go to the Pub tonight, and did Paris and Steph say where they were?" she asked.
"Steph is on her way, she was almost here when she said she forgot her favorite shoes, so she had to turn around and go get them. Paris said she was with Doyle. I don't even wanna get into that. I heard something strange going on in the background when I called." he said.
"Eww." Rory said. "I seriously hope you didn't interrupt something dirty." she said with a look of disgust.
"Me too Ace. Me too." They watched movies and later on Paris and Steph finally arrived.
"What took you so long?" Rory asked.
"Well, I'm sure Logan told you about my shoe issue, right?" Steph asked. Rory nodded. "Well, I get back to my house, I go to my room and I get my shoes. I'm almost out the door when mother dearest calls me back. She says there is a society party tomorrow night, and I am required to attend, and bring a date. So, you guys wanna come too? Pretty please? I really don't wanna have to be there alone with just some stuffy guy I'll find to date who only want's to talk about his car and some sports team that I can guarantee I will have never heard of." Steph said with a small pout.
"I'll go." Paris said. "I've got nothing better to do."
"I'll come too Steph. I know how it feels when there's no one there for you to hang with." Rory said.
"Logan?" Steph asked looking at him with another pout.
"Ah, man. Rory had taught you well in the art of pouting. Yeah, I'll come, now we just have to convince Colin and Finn." he said.
"Well, lets go to the Pub, we're supposed to meet them in a few anyway." Rory said. They left the dorm and walked to the Pub. Logan had slung his arm around Rory's shoulders and she leaned into them. Anyone that saw this would think they were a couple in love, but really it was just a friendly gesture that they always took part in.
"So Paris." Rory asked while they were walking. "Logan say's you were with Doyle." she said with a smirk.
"Well Gilmore, considering I'm seeing him, yes I was with him. He asked me to help him move some of his stuff into his dorm. I swear, that dorm is so gross. It still reminds me of a third world country." she said with a shudder. They all laughed. They entered the Pub and found Colin and Finn sitting in a big round booth. They joined them and a waitress came to take their drink orders.
"So love. How are you?" Finn asked Paris as he slung his arm over her shoulders.
"Lovely Finn, but I do suggest you remove your arm I bite it off." she said in a sickeningly sweet voice.
"Ooh." he said. "I like em feisty." he said as he winked at her.
"So, Steph has a party to go to tomorrow night and we have agreed to go with her. You guys wanna come too?" Logan asked.
"Open bar?" Finn asked.
"Yes Finn." Steph said with an eye roll.
"Then I'm in." he said.
"What about you tight ass?" Steph asked Colin.
"Yeah, I'll go." he said.
"Great. Now I just have to find a date." Steph said.
Colin's head popped up at this. Everyone knew he was in love with Steph, but he was too scared to tell her. Now, he figured was his chance. "Uh, Steph. I'll be your date." he said with a smile.
She smiled back at him. "Thanks Colin. That would be great." she said as she leaned forward and gave him a kiss on the cheek. The ironic thing about this situation, was that Steph secretly liked Colin too. Only, it really wasn't a secret. All of her friends could see it, well, except for Colin of course.
The night continued with drinks and food. They all danced for a while and then left. Finn was the only one to get completely smashed that night. Everyone else had only had enough to take the edge off.
Logan walked Rory back to her dorm and she invited him in. Neither was very tired so he was going to help her unpack the rest of her stuff and then they were going to watch more movies. She opened the door and walked inside, not knowing she was about to run into her past. She flicked the light switch and the whole room became illuminated. And there it was. Her troubled past, sitting on her couch.
"Tristan." she whispered, as she grabbed Logan's hand.
