Chapter 1- Leaving The Gilmore Home for The Gilmore Manor

And it echoes in her ears, she hears the words again and again in her head. The two words repeating and the ringing in her ears combined to create an unbearable chorus. 'And it echoes on to the next. This is my fault. My mistake was repeated in my daughter. This is my fault.' She thought.

"Mom?" She asked in a small voice, her mother hadn't said anything in a while, "Mom please say something."

"I'm sorry."

"Why?" She asked confused.

"This is my fault."

"What? No its not."

"Yes it is. You made my mistake."


"Rory I need to think about this."

"Oh.. Okay." Lorelai walked upstairs, Rory was left to stare at her hands.

The next morning Lorelai and Rory sat at the breakfast table in a hardening silence.
"Rory, I talked to Grandma and Grandpa," Lorelai spoke, shattering the silence like a menacing child with a hammer. "We're moving back to the Gilmore Manor." Lorelai hated it but she thought it would be easier for Rory, and she would do anything for her daughter.

A few weeks had passed, Lorelai and Rory had gotten everything they needed to straightened out. "You'll be closer to school, and they'll pay for everything and it will be easier."

Rory was silent as they drove to Hartford with the last load of the stuff they needed. Lorelai felt the need to explain her decision, but couldn't any further.

Rory spoke softly, "It was my birthday." She said out of no where.


"That's when it happened."


"And it was Tristen, mom."

"Why are you telling me this?"

"Because you never asked and you need to know."


"Mom, you know Tristen and I had been going out for a while. You met him, you liked him. He's gone." She blurted out.


"He's in military school, his parents sent him. But before he left, I told him. And he told me to get rid of it. I told him no. And then he left."

"Oh honey, I'm sorry."

"I know." Rory sniffed, "Did you talk to Luke?" She shifted the subject.

"Yeah, he said he'd keep an eye on the everything for us," Lorelai sighed, "He said to tell you he loves you and he hopes everything works out."

Rory smiled, she looked out the window at the highway scenery rushing by, she felt tears stinging her eyes, she already missed home.

Okay, Tell me what you think... Even if you have to send a cabbage, tomatoe, or even a watermellon hurling in my direction, via reveiw center. The music plays as I struggle to find my speech that fell in my dress Toodles! Newt
