Just Can't Help It

Chapter 1

After Liz's Wedding:

Luke walked Lorelai home. They were talking in their usual silly banter. When they reache her house, they stopped at her porch, and she said, "I had a really great time tonight."

Luke smiled and said, "Yeah. Uh… me too."

"You're a great dancer. I don't know why you said you don't dance. I think you should become one of those professional ballroom dancer people. You could where 'air pants!' I'm sure T.J. would approve."

"Trust me, I do not need or want T.J.'s approval. And thank you it's all God-given talent. I mainly said I didn't dance because I didn't want to dance with Crazy Carry."

"Yeah. I kind of figured... Liz told me about you and Carry's little make-out session under the bleachers in high school."

Luke blushed and said, "Nothing happened between Carry and me. She scares me too much with her inebriated banter and giant squished-up boobs."

Lorelai laughed. "Ah. Wow. Now, tell me how you really feel."

They both laughed.

"But if she didn't scare you, would you have done something with her?"

"Well... maybe back then, but I definitely wouldn't now."

"Why not now?"

He looks her in the eyes. "Because... I have my eyes on somebody else."

What! No! Dang it Gilmore! You're too darn slow and dumb! "Oh. Uh... Okay… Who?" She asked slightly tilting her head to the side.

She's so cute when she does that. He smiled and looked her in the eyes again. Then, still looking into those gorgeous eyes of hers, he took her hands in his and said "You."

Before she knew it, Luke's lips were on hers in a soft, sweet, and passion-filled kiss.

Oh my! Is Luke... and am I! Yes! Yes he is. Yes I am! OH! Yes we are. Luke is kissing me, and I am kissing him back... Wow he's pretty good at this...

They pulled away and stared into each other's eyes.

Lorelai was first to break the silence. "Oh."


"Wow... okay... So that means you uh..."


"I see... When did this..."

"As far back as I can remember."

"Oh... but what about..."

"When I was with Rachel, you were with Max. When I was with Nicole, you were with Jason... I was mainly with them to get over you."

"Right... Do you um... want to come in?"

"Uh. Yeah okay."

They entered the house silently. "Have a seat. I mean uh if you want to... You don't have to sit. Standing's good, too. I just thought..."

Luke cut her off. "It's okay. I'll sit." He sat on the couch in the living room.

"Okay. Do you uh... Think Gilmore! ... um.. Do you want a beer?"

"Most definitely."

"Okay. Good... That would be..." She looked around confused. Then, she pointed toward the kitchen. "In there!"

Luke chuckled. "Yup." He liked seeing her that flustered because, for some strange reason, it made him feel less nervous. Am I being selfish?

A/N: Okay… so that's it so far. I hope you enjoyed it! I'll try to update as much as possible, but I have school and family stuff, and I just recently moved. I'm also working on a book... I know this chapter seemed kinda short, but I'll try to make them longer in the future. I plan on making this a very long fic, and this is my first one, so be brutal with your reviews. Tell me everything you hate AND like about it... especially the stuff you hate though, so I can try and improve. I'm going to warn you now that there will be a lot of angst and relationship problems whether it's between L/L, Rory & Lorelai, Lorelai and her mother... etc. Oh and I LOVE writing cliffhangers, so be ready for those. Sometimes I don't even realize that I wrote one... R&R
