"I think you missed your train," Rory teased, breaking through the contented silence they had fallen into, as their bodies lay in her old bed.
Jess let out a laugh and kissed her forehead. "That's why they invented tomorrow morning."
A blissful smile came across her face as she nuzzled against him, her eyes closing. The rain had slowed down to nothing more than a drizzle. Slowly she began to drift off until his deep voice awoke her.
"I have something I need to tell you," Jess whispered.
"What?" Rory asked, locking her fingers in with his.
Jess' voice was very stern as he tilted her chin up with his finger, to make their eyes meet. "The night I came to have dinner with your grandmother a billion years ago...the night with the black eye?"
"Yes…" she replied warily.
"I lied. I wasn't hit by a football. It was...a swan," he replied, his lips fighting a smile.
Rory blinked for a second, then sat up, looking down at him. "Wait...what?"
"It's true," he stated in mock intensity. "I didn't want you to find out from anyone else."
"I don't know what circles he moves in."
Rory shook her head with an amused smile, then picked up a pillow and smacked him in the face with it. Quickly he pushed it away and wrapped his arms around her waist, pulling her close.
"You're an idiot," she chided as she playfully struggled to get away.
"Very true," he smirked and pressed his lips against her as he flipped her on to her back.
Soft footsteps were heard as the office door opened. In the dark room, behind the blue glow of the laptop, sat Rory typing away.
"It's 4 am," Jess yawned as he stepped in.
"Sorry...inspiration just struck me."
With heavy eyes Jess wandered to behind her and kissed her neck."Was it 'cause you saw my ass?"
"Absolutely," Rory sighed, reading fake prose from the screen. "Undulating with desire, Adrian removes her crimson cape, at the site of Reginal's stiff and-"
"Okay," he yawned again. "As long as you are fine, I'm going to go back to sleep and leave you to your licentiousness."
Rory stopped typing, turning to face him. "What's another word for engorged?"
"Tumescent?" he smirked and kissed her.
The kiss lingered for a moment and Rory began to fall into it deeper, until she remembered she was writing and gently pushed him back."Goodnight goodnight. Parting is such sweet sorrow."
"That I shall say goodnight until Suri wakes me up at seven am. Maybe eight. I'll probably hit the snooze a few times."
"Go!" she snorted.
"I swear they gave you my coffee," Rory insisted as they sat in the Prius, idling by the Amtrak station.
"It tastes the same to me."
She smiled and shoved the coffee cup in his hand. "Trade."
"Do I get a choice?"
Without a response she took his coffee cup and sipped it. "No, you're right. It's the same. Over brewed and bitter. Weird."
"I was just accosted by you needing her caffeine fix and Starbucks tasting generically the same is weird?"
She sighed with a smile and tapped her cup against his in a cheers. "Sorry." Taking another sip, she glanced at the clock on the dashboard. "It's almost nine."
"I still got around fifteen minutes."
She nodded simply and continued her drink. "So...should we acknowledge now what happened or another time...like next Christmas or when Haley's comes by again?"
He jested with a wink and slid close. "Need more details for your book?"
"It's not a dirty book!"
"But imagine all the money you could make. The movie rights alone. I stipulate that James Franco needs to play me." A soft smile spread across his lips as he kissed her gently, then sat back. "You know, when I was around sixteen, I had been working really hard on my OC audition, and got kicked out of school...again. So, I was sent to live with my Uncle Luke."
"Flannel shirt? Backwards cap?"
Jess continued. "Being stuck in Middlebury was hell on earth. I was beyond pissed, like Yacht's fake sex tape pissed off...until I met this girl. She liked the same music and books as me, but she was a bit of a brain. So, I immediately decided I was going to seduce this girl and fulfill my destiny as a true dick. I thought It would be fun and it was pretty hilarious to make her extremely tall boyfriend twitch. I mean he was abnormally tall."
Rory looked a bit anxious to speak, but held her tongue, for once.
"But, when I finally got her," Jess said, softly leaning forward again. "Things changed and I actually fell for her. My first love, you could say. I had never really felt a need to be connected to a girl in mind and body before. Though, don't get me wrong, body was initiating most of my actions."
Rory smirked, looking away for a moment.
"I ran away, like I tended to do when things got too hard or real. A year later I blurted out that I loved her in the middle of a festival and in return, she ran away. Which I always found very poetic."
"And...how did it end?"
"It didn't," he replied, his hand stroking her cheek. "We had years of a true platonic friendship and grew together trying to find ourselves. 'There is a passion for hunting something deeply implanted in the human breast'."
Rory eyed him curiously. "What is that from?"
"Figure it out," he smirked. "I'll call you when I get home. We can figure out next weekend. You haven't been to Philly in a while. Show you all the hipster gourmet burger joints that cost more than your car."
"I also," Rory added. "haven't seen your new place."
"I am not a piece of meat, woman."
"So what do you think? I'm pretty happy with that plan," Jess whispered, when out of the corner of his eye he saw the clock. "And now I do have to go." He cupped her face and kissed her deeply, then grabbed his bag.
As he climbed out of the car, Rory opened the window. "I'm happy with that."
He smiled and turned towards the station, as the train could be seen in the distance, pulling up. Running off, he was in such a hurry, to Rory he looked like he had stolen something, when her brain clicked.
"Oliver Twist!" Rory suddenly called out the window.
Jess turned around, running backwards and nodded with a smile, before returning his attention to the train.
