Tales of a Lonely Girl

Authors Note: This picks up right after the last scene of the premiere, Say Goodbye To Daisy Miller. I had this idea, so I thought I'd post it up. This will probably be at least 10 chapters, if not more. It's going to follow Lorelai's summer until Luke gets back. (So let's not pretend that the next episode skips 2 months ahead!) Please RR! Let me know if you guys like it! Oh yeah, for the names of the chapters, it just says the name, and then Lorelai & . Whatever name is there, will be the person she's talking to in that chapter. Pretty simple!

Summary: Lorelai's alone, obviously. Luke's gone, Rory's gone, Emily's gone-Not that that makes a difference to her. LUCKILY, Luke got a cell phone. This follows Lorelai's phone conversations mostly, with Luke while he's away. A few are L/R, L/E, L/Richard. Enjoy!

Disclaimer: Not mine, thanks though to Amy Sherman-Palladino for the cast to work with.


Chapter 1: I Won't Change My Mind-Luke & Lorelai

(Last lines, last scene of 5.01, Say Goodbye to Daisy Miller)

"So where are you right now?"

"Oh I'm about 10 minutes from if I lived here, I'd blow my brains out."

"Ah yes, I hear it's lovely there this time of year."


"Just got to Maine a few miles back. I feel like I've been driving forever."

"What time did you leave?"

"Oh well they called around 4, and I left around 6, I wanted to help out with the dinner rush before taking off."

"Ah yes, the diner. I assume it's still going to be open, even though the Luke part of it won't be there."

"Yeah, let's just hope it's still standing when I get back."

"Lane's there, she'll take good care of it."

"Yeah, I know."

"It won't be the same though, without you. Your coffee is the best!" She whined.

"You'll live."

"No, I really don't think I will. So, you said you think you'll be back in about a week?"


"Tough." She said blandly.


"So I guess we'll have to postpone our date. I mean, if you want to postpone it." She tried not to sound too...forceful.

"I do, definitely. Sorry that I had to run out on such short notice by the way. I didn't want to go, really."

"Yeah, we'll I'll be lonely."

"You've got Rory."


"What do you mean?"

"She decided to go to Europe, with my mother, they left tonight."


"Yeah, Rory, Emily, Europe, tonight. I just got back from dropping Rory off at the airport."

"I didn't know she was planning on going to Europe."

"Funny, neither did I."

"How long will she be gone for?"

"Few weeks, I don't know. We're not exactly on such great speaking terms right now."

"How come?"

She hesitated. Eventually, she'd tell Luke about Rory and Dean. Just because she really does need somebody to talk about it with. But she figured over the phone wouldn't be such a good idea. After all, Luke would probably turn around and come back here and kill Dean. 'Hmm, him coming back isn't that bad of an idea.' She thought to herself.

"Oh, well, long story. I'll tell you eventually, it's just, I don't know, personal to Rory I guess. We just got in a fight over something really stupid and she's mad at me for some things I said."

"I"m sorry."

"Yeah, well it's not your fault. Anyways, where are you?"

"I should probably be getting to their house pretty soon."

"Good, good."

"Yeah, I just got off the phone with T.J. who gave me a whole explanation as to where their spare key is."

"Where are they?"

"Oh, there at home, but since there uhm, incapable of moving right now, they don't want to get up and answer the door. Ya know, with the arms and legs and all."

"Ah yes, I do believe you mentioned that on my machine." She said, smiling into the phone.

"Yeah, my messages."

"Yes, your messages."

"Anyways, I'm going to start heading towards their place, but give me a call later, I mean, if you want to talk."

"Alright, good. I will. After all, I am a lonely person now." She tried to sound sad.

"You'll be fine."

"And I don't have your coffee. I'll miss your coffee. Hell, I already miss your coffee!"

"Yeah, but I'll talk to you later, right?"


"Alright, bye Lorelai."



"I, well, I just want to let you know- I'm not going to change my mind."

He smiled to himself. 'Thank God.' "Good. I'm glad." He said, smiling. He couldn't help it.

"Me too."

"Goodnight, Lorelai."

"Bye Luke."

She hung up and rested her head against the arm of the couch, smiling to herself thinking, 'would it be too soon if I called him right now?' She toyed around with the phone for a minute. 'No, I'll call him tomorrow.'

That's chapter 1. I'll probably post chapter 2 tomorrow, it'll be a Luke and Lorelai one. If you have any ideas as too who else she could talk to, let me know. Please review! Thanks guys!
