A/N: Hello all! I just decided to just finish this story, because I only have one chapter left. So, let's go!

Lorelai quickly turned around and watched the petite round blond woman run down the steps. "Crap," Lorelai said. She ran out after the retreating figure. Lorelai caught up with the her neighbor and stopped in front of her trying to catch her breath. "God you run fast, Babette."

"Oh, sugar, I'm so sorry. I thought you were home alone, I didn't mean to interrupt you and your male friend."

"We-Wait. You didn't recognize the guy?"

"No, I didn't see his face, why, doll? Who is i-"Babette stopped talking.

Lorelai heard footsteps behind her and she closed her eyes. "Of course."

"Hey, Babette," Luke said uneasily.

"Oh my God! You two crazy kids finally got together! This is amazing! I'm not gonna say anymore, you guys she go back to what you were doing, I won't stop you!"

Lorelai smiled and shifted her weight to each foot. "Um, Babette. Could you be a peach and not tell anyone, yet? We just started this like two minutes ago and-"

"Oh sure honey! I won't breathe a word! Patty and I have been waitin' years for you two to get your act together, I don't want to ruin it for ya! You keep this a secret as long as you won't."

Lorelai grinned and hugged Babette. "Thanks, you're the best." Lorelai released the tiny woman and grabbed Luke's hand. Lorelai gave Babette a mischievous smile and led Luke to her house. "Thanks!" she called.

"Anytime, sweet pea!" Babette grinned as Luke and Lorelai disappeared. I'm the first one to know about their relationship, she thought. Oh I wish I could tell Patty! I'll give them some time, they'll reveal themselves. God, they are great together. Good thing they denied their love all these; it just made it stronger. Jeez, pretending is such a cruel game. But I do enjoy the outcome.

A/N: Shortest chapter ever! I know...Ha ha! I got you! I'm not gonna end it now! Are you crazy? I'm just gonna jump ahead....

---------------------------------------------------------------------------- ---

Luke and Lorelai had been dating for five months. Only Babette, Rory, and Sookie knew about their relationship and had not breathed a word. It was safe for Luke to spend the night at Lorelai's house because they had trusted Babette.

One night they were walking to the town meeting which Luke hated going to even more now. Taylor had been trying to buy his soda shoppe from Luke by trying to convince people that they need to be their own landlord. The idea wasn't convincing anyone, but it had convinced Luke that he was going to find a way to evict Taylor.

"Don't you love town meetings?" Lorelai asked as they walked to Patty's Dance Studio.

"You do that on purpose, don't you?" Luke asked angrily.

"Of course she does, you should know by now that she loves to pick on people, especially you," Rory explained.

"That is true. You know, I hope Taylor goes after you tonight. He's been moving his way around the businesses."

Lorelai gasped. "That's mean. Just for that you aren't getting lucky tonight."

"Ew, Mom. Not the thing I want to hear."

"Oh, sorry, babe." Lorelai turned to Luke. "See what you made me do? Her mind is being dirtied because of you."

"Please, she lives with you. It's all your fault."

Lorelai stuck out her tongue as they walked into the studio.


"...Are there any other topics for tonight?" Taylor asked the crowd.

"Oh yes, I do!" Lorelai exclaimed.

"No you don't," Luke said in an undertone.

Lorelai glared at him and stood up. "I would like to tell you Taylor, is that the reason Luke is grumpy is because of your stupid landlord-ing proposition. That is all." Lorelai sat down again.

"Lorelai, that was not an important topic," Taylor remarked.

Luke was muttering something into Lorelai's ear and suddenly she exclaimed, "I love Luke!" She gasped and covered her mouth. Luke's eyes widened and looked around at all of the people in the building.

"Way to go!" someone shouted.

"Woo hoo!" another voice said.

"You go girl!"

Lorelai saw Babette talking excitedly with Patty. She knew that Babette was revealing everything that had happened in the last five months and she leaned over to Luke and whispered, "I think we've been discovered."

"You think," Luke whispered back. She was surprised that he didn't seem upset like she thought. Luke leaned over and kissed her. Lorelai saw flashes going off even though her eyes were closed. When he pulled away he had a smile on his face. "Lorelai, can you do me a favor?"

"Sure, what is it?"

"Will you marry me?"

Lorelai's jaw dropped open. Luke pulled a small box out of his pocket and presented the ring. She started at the large diamond. "Oh my God..." She looked back up at him and her open mouth formed a large grin. She leaned toward him and whispered, "Yes." She kissed him quickly. He slipped the ring on her finger and kissed her again. When she pulled away she said, "I didn't know you had this in mind. I thought we were just going to tell everyone."

"Well, Rory told me to go for it."

Lorelai turned to Rory. "You knew!"

Rory shrugged with a big smile. "Of course."

Lorelai grinned at Rory and hugged her. "I'm getting married!"

"I know!" Rory exclaimed hugging her back. Lorelai pulled away and then slapped Rory's arm. "Hey! What was that for?"

"For not telling me," Lorelai said with a pout.

Luke and Rory exchanged glances. "Lorelai," Luke said as he put his arm around her. "I love you." He kissed her passionately which made everyone in the room hoot and cat call.

La fin
