Family Matters And A New Twist In Life

Chapter 1

Lorelai just stood there for what seemed like an eternity. She watched her daughter, crumbled down on the lawn in front of their house sobbing. It was the first time that she didn't understand her daughter but even worse than that she was disappointed in her daughter. She couldn't believe what had just happened. That she had caught her daughter and Dean, a very married Dean, coming out of Rory's bedroom obvious to what had just happened in there. The first time in her life, Lorelai didn't know what to do. She would have loved to just take her into her arms and tell her that everything would be fine but she couldn't. Not this time. This was a major screw up, nothing to forget or forgive about easily.

Lorelai took a deep breath and descended the steps of their front porch. She stood

behind Rory, not sure what to do. She gently put a hand on Rory's shoulder. "Rory."

Rory flinched at her touch. "Leave me alone," she said in a tear strained voice.

"Come on get up."

"I said leave me alone," she said in a stronger voice, almost yelling. "Go back to the Dragonfly, or wherever but leave me alone, I don't wanna talk to you right now." Rory got up and went into the house, slamming the door behind her without even looking at her mother.

Lorelai just stood there looking at the door. She hated fighting with Rory, but this wasn't something that would be easy to solve. How could Rory disappoint her like that? She's always been the rational and logic one and now she did something so stupid.

Lorelai decided to go back to the Dragonfly Inn; she didn't know how to talk to Rory. She couldn't talk to Rory right now; she was so disappointed in her, even mad at her for being so irresponsible.

Lorelai didn't recognize that someone was sitting on the front steps.

"Lorelai." The least person she wanted to see right now.

"Jason," she said in a stern voice, hoping that he would get the hint that she didn't wanna deal with him right now.

He stood up and blocked her way to the entrance of the Inn. "We need to talk, Lorelai."

"There's nothing left to talk about Jason. It's over. I don't wanna see you anymore."

Lorelai tried to walk past him but he took hold of her arm. "Let go of me, Jason."

"Not until you agree to talk to me about us. I love you Lorelai."

Lorelai tried to get free but Jason tightened his grip around her arm even more.

"If you would actually love me, you wouldn't have sued my family. There is no us anymore, now let go of me Jason."

Jason released her arm.

"This is not over yet." Jason stomped to his car and drove away.

Lorelai sat down on the front porch and rested her head in her hands. She heard someone walking into her direction.

"Hey," a familiar voice said in front of her.

"Hey." She looked up to see Luke looking down at her.

Luke instantly new something was wrong with her. She looked so sad and the wrinkles and dark circles under her eyes made her look ten years older than she had just an hour ago.

Luke sat down beside her and gently put his hand on her shoulder.

"Lorelai what's wrong? Did something happen?" Lorelai nodded.

"Rory and I had this big fight. She did something really stupid. We started yelling at each other and she said that she hates me and to leave her alone and she ran into the house and slammed the door behind her."

Lorelai got up and started pacing around.

"God, how could she? I mean, she's never talked to me like that. I mean, sure we had fights but not like this. But she was so stupid, so …. Just not Rory. She always did the right things and never screwed up, ok never might not be right, but nothings ever been as bad as this. I'm so disappointed in her Luke. And then if that wasn't bad enough I come over here and Jason starts rambling on and on about how much he loves me and that he wants me back."

At this Luke heart starts to race.

"I mean, geez, how many times do I have to tell him, until he gets the fact that it's over. I mean I don't even know why I didn't see this coming. Arrgghh."

Luke walked over to her and gently took hold of her arms in order to calm her down. Lorelai flinched when he touched the spot where Jason had grabbed her before.

"Sorry." He let go of her.

"No, no. It's not… Jason held my arm a little too tight."

Luke got angry. "What?! I'm gonna kill this guy. How could he hurt you. Are you allright? God, Lorelai."

Now it was Lorelai's turn to calm him down. "No, Luke. Don't worry. Just a little bruise."

"Just a little bruise?! Lorelai I'm so sorry I wasn't here. God Kirk is so gonna regret this."

Lorelai took his hand. "Shh, Luke, don't worry, I'm allright."

Luke took a deep breath and looked into her eyes. "Are you sure?"

Lorelai went pack to the steps and sat down followed by Luke. She looked down at her hands. "About Jason? Yes. About Rory? No. Definitely not allright."

"Do you wanna talk about it?" Lorelai looked into his questioning eyes.

"I do want to talk about it. But I can't. Not yet."

Luke nodded. "Well you know where to find me. Anytime. I'll be there."

Lorelai managed a little smile and Luke smiled back at her.

"Look, I'm sorry but I need to be alone for a while. Why don't we go upstairs and try to get some sleep and I'll see tomorrow morning."

Luke got up and helped Lorelai to her feet. "Allright try to get some rest, you know where to find me if you need some company."

Lorelai nodded. "Yeah I know thanks. I just need to be alone for a while."

Luke nodded. "Well, I'll see you tomorrow then. Goodnight, Lorelai."

Goodnight, Luke." She squeezed his hand and walked upstairs to her room. She knew she wouldn't get much sleep that night.

Luke stayed outside on the porch for a while and then went upstairs into his room. He had never seen her like this, she looked so sad. 'Whatever happened it must have been really bad'. He knew Lorelai would talk to him eventually, but she needed time. And he would give her as much time as she needed.
