The Circle of Lorelai Ch. 1


Disclaimer- I do NOT own any of the characters, they all belong to the WB (I believe)


"Mom?" Rory called from the bathroom.

"What honey?" Lorelai replied not looking up from her magazine, nothing was rarely wrong when Rory called to her, just that they were out of something she considered necessary to life such as toothpaste and food.

"Mom, get in here," Rory called.

"I'm coming," Lorelai said standing up. "Are we out of something again?" Not remembering that her daughter had just ran through the kitchen not a half-hour ago with a bag under her arm and yelling 'hi' then running into the bathroom, and hadn't emerged yet.

"Hurry!" Rory yelled.

"I'm hurrying as fast as any person can when they think their daughter wants them to come see that they're out of toothpaste," Lorelai said sarcastically.

"No Mom, I'm serious," Rory said, sounding like she was crying.

"Are you okay?" Lorelai asked opening the door to the bathroom.

Rory said nothing, but passed her something. It was a pregnancy test strip, and it was positive.

"Oh my God," Lorelai said. She looked up at her daughter. Her beautiful, smart, daughter. Almost out of high school, and she was becoming her, another pregnant teen. Wait, not becoming, that strip said that she was, she was exactly like her. She sat there for what seemed like ages letting this sink in, Rory was pregnant.

"Mom?" Rory asked, "Mom are you mad?"


"Well get up then, do a cheer or something, because you sure seem mad," Rory said.

"Do you know who it is?"

"Who?" Rory asked, "the father?"

"Yes, who is it, whose parents to I have to get mad at for letting this happen, letting their son do this," Lorelai said, the fact that Rory had a boyfriend completely out of her head, not believing that Luke would let something like this happen.

"Jess," Rory said.

"Does he know?"

"Not yet," Rory said starting to cry again, "Mom, I'm scared to tell him. How will he react."

"Oh honey, I know you're scared, but you have to tell him," Lorelai said, and then jokingly, "Before Miss Patty finds out."

Rory tried to laugh but her tears just got worse.

"Oh honey, I'm sorry," Lorelai said. "Look, we'll go to Luke's and you and him can go upstairs and you can tell him and I'll yell at Luke okay?"

"Okay" Rory said whimpering.

"And no matter what, I will not drive you out of my house like your grandmother did to me," Lorelai said putting her arm around her daughter's shoulder as they emerged from the bathroom.

"Thanks Mom."
