Lorelai walked into the diner. It wasn't very busy considering it was closing time. She noticed Luke and the counter reading a letter and walked up to him.

"Hello sunshine," she said.

"Huh?" He looked up and saw her looking down at him.

"You don't look so good, is something wrong?"

"Oh, no. It's just that my aunt wants me to come visit her."

"And that's...bad?" She asked utterly confused.

"Well, yeah. She keeps on badgering me about not being with someone. How I should settle down, start a family. Stuff like that."

"And you can't bring Nicole along? You know, your wife?"

"No. First of all, Nicole's in Ohio for some big trial; and second, if I told her I was married, she'd be offended because I didn't invite her to the wedding."

"Oh, that's gotta suck. Well, can't she come to visit you?" Lorelai asked.

"No. She can't fly, she doesn't know how to drive, and she's afraid of trains."

"Jesus! Is she an old fragile woman or something?"

"No, she's just not really a modern woman."

"Where does she live?"

"Portland," he said simply.

"Oregon or Maine?"


"Oh wow! I've always wanted to go there! It's so beautiful, well from what I see on postcards."

He sighed. " I have no idea what I'm going to do."

She thought for a second. "Can you have someone pose as a significant other?"

He looked at her. "What?"

"You know, someone to pretend that they're your girlfriend or fiancée or something like that." Lorelai suggested.

"I don't know, probably. But who would want to go to Portland with me and pose as someone I'm seeing?"

Lorelai slightly raised her hand.

"What? No way am I taking you."

She looked offended. "Why not? I suggested it, I should get to go."

"Lorelai why would you even want to come with me?"

"Well, I would like to meet one of your family members, and I would love to go to Portland."

Luke stared at her. "What about the inn?"

She shrugged. "We have people to take care of everything. Besides, it's not going to open until March, anyways."

He sighed and thought for a minute. He sighed again, rolled his eyes, and gruffly said, "Fine."

She smiled and squealed. "Yay! We're going to have so much fun! When are we leaving?"

He looked at the letter again. "She wants me - - us to be there on the weekend of the 12th."

She smiled. "Great, today's Sunday, right?" He nodded. "Then I'll look foreword to it." She added, "Sweetie."

He rolled his eyes and went over to get her a cup of coffee to go.

"No argument?"

"You're doing me a huge favor by doing this, and I'm reciprocating."

She nodded. "Uh huh. But just to let you know, you're not getting into my pants at any part during the trip, got that?"

He rolled his eyes. "Just get out of here!"

Lorelai smiled, walked to her jeep with her cup of coffee, and drove home.


Thursday rolled along and Lorelai walked into the diner with three bags.

"You know we're only going there for three days, right?" Luke asked as she placed them on a chair and sat down next to them.

"I know, but I don't know what we're going to be doing. We might go out to a nice restaurant, but we also might do something casual. I can't exactly wear the same thing over again."

"Why not?"

"Because that's disgusting and gross!" She exclaimed.

He sighed. "Alright. Our plane leaves at three and it's noon right now. We'll leave in a few minutes, ok?"

She nodded. "Ok. I'll go wait in the car."

"Well, actually, Jackson agreed to drop us off. It's much cheaper than leaving a car in their garage for a few days."

She pretended to be shocked. "I can't believe you! You're so cheap! You better have not gotten me a cheap ring!"

He rolled his eyes. "Don't worry, I'm using my mother's engagement ring, we'll be fine."

Lorelai looked skeptical. "What if it doesn't fit?"

"Then we're not meant to be."


He sighed. "The ring my father gave to my mother has been in the Danes family for many years. My great-great-great-grandfather brought it over from Ireland and married my great-great-great grandmother."

"Aw! Wait, so the ring's never been altered?"

"Nope, he made it, and to this day, nothing has been changed."

"How sentimental! Why didn't you give it to Nicole?" Lorelai asked.

"Because we got married on a ship and I wasn't expecting on proposing."

"Oh, ok. So why didn't give it to her when you got back?"

"Because she already has an engagement ring."

"You don't think it's gonna fit her, huh?" She asked smirking.

"I don't know."

"So can I have it now?"

"So are you a little bit anxious?"

She gasped. "How dare you mock me!"

He rolled his eyes. "Let me get my bags, and we'll get going."

She smiled, grabbed her bags, and headed out to meet Jackson who had just pulled up.


Around 9:30 Connecticut time, they were pulling up toward Luke's aunt's house.

"Luke, it's so beautiful!" Lorelai said while still admiring the ring he gave her.

He sighed. "I guess." He still couldn't believe it had fit her perfectly. Her hands reminded him of his mother's hands, they looked so similar. He smiled at the thought. He then stopped the car in front of his aunt's house and got out. Lorelai was about to open her door, but Luke opened in for her. She smiled at him and got out. They got their suitcases out of the trunk and walked toward his aunt's front door.

As soon as Luke rang the doorbell, a woman who looked about sixty-five years old with salt and pepper hair opened the door with a huge smile on her face.

"Lucas! Oh, I'm so happy to see you!" his aunt exclaimed as she embraced him into a hug.

"Hi Auntie. It's good to see you, too."

As soon as she released him, she looked at Lorelai and smiled.

"You must be the lovely young lady who stole my nephew's heart."

Luke turned his direction toward Lorelai as well. "Oh yeah, Auntie, this is my" he cleared his throat, "fiancée, Lorelai. Lorelai, this is my aunt Leslie."

Lorelai grinned and held out her hand. "It's so nice to finally meet you."

Aunt Leslie did not shake Lorelai's hand; instead she wrapped her arms around Lorelai and said, "No, dear, we're almost family."

When the separated, Lorelai, who was still smiling, said, "Thank you, you have no idea how happy that makes me feel."

"Yes, now you two come in and get settled." Aunt Leslie walked inside with Luke and Lorelai behind her carrying their bags.


"Luke, you aunt is so adorable, and so nice!" Lorelai told Luke as they were unpacking.

"Thanks, and she seems to like you a lot, don't know why, though. Ow!" Luke received a smack on the arm from Lorelai.

She smirked. "No rude comments when we're here, you aunt might get suspicious."

He looked at her and sighed. "Sure."

Her smirk turned into a smile. "Thank you." She looked at the lone Queen sized bed. "So, who gets the bed?"

Luke turned his direction over to the bed. "Um, we might have to share it."

"What?! Are you crazy?"

"My aunt likes to come in and say goodnight when you're in bed, she might question us if she sees one of us on the floor and one of us on the bed."

"We could tell her we haven't slept together and don't want to ruin it."

"Yeah, but that's not going to work with my aunt, I've told her that you have a grown daughter, that means you are. . . well, experienced," he said as his face turned red.

"Ok then," Lorelai said not noticing his blush. "How about we tell her we had a fight or, ooh, I have a yeast infection."

"No way, Lorelai!"

She shrugged. "It was worth a try."

"But, I do like the fight idea."

She looked at him. "Really?"

He nodded. "Yeah, it seems like a good idea, and that way she won't question why we're not kissing, either."

"Oh yeah, I forgot about that. Oh, if she asks when we had a fight, you can say we were arguing over which car rental place to go to, and you won."

"I like that idea. Wow, I never knew you had really good ideas. Ah!" Lorelai started playfully smacking his arms and torso.

Aunt Leslie walked into the room as Lorelai was hitting Luke and they were both laughing. She smiled and left the room shutting the door quietly behind her.
