A/N: Sorry I took so long, everyone! Shit happens. I wanted to get this chapter out on November first because it marks 2 years of writing this story, and it's the LAST CHAPTER (!!!!)of the story! Yeah, I decided to skip ahead and finish it off instead of dragging it out.
Let's get it started…
Just Can't Help It
It was exactly six months after Luke and Lorelai's wedding, and the couple was going out to celebrate. "Luke, are you sure I don't look like a snake that's just eaten a baby elephant?"
"Um… yes, I'm quite positive."
"Ugh, well I feel huge." Lorelai was wearing a cute, black maternity dress that showed off her chest and black flats to match it, her hair down and curly.
"You look fine, Lorelai. Beautiful."
Lorelai pouted at herself in the full-length mirror and sighed. "Okay." They walked out of the room, down the stairs, and into the living room where Rory and Gigi were waiting.
Gigi hopped off the couch and hustled over to them. "Mommy! You look pretty!"
"Thank you, Gigi." Lorelai smiled.
"Yeah, mom, you look great."
"Thanks, kid. You're sure you don't mind keeping an eye on Gigi?"
"Of course. It's about time I spend some quality time with my sister. Besides, she thinks I'm cool, don't you Gigi?"
Gigi nodded. "Mhm."
"Lorelai," Luke said, "everything is going to be fine, but if we don't leave soon, we're going to be late."
"Okay, okay, let's go."
Luke helped Lorelai with her jacket before putting on his own and leading her outside. Instead of going to Sniffy's like Lorelai that they would, Luke took her to a romantic, somewhat expensive restaurant. "Hon, are you sure we can afford this."
"Don't worry about it, Lorelai. We're fine." Once inside, Luke told the hostess their name, and they were led to a secluded, little corner table. On it was a vase with a single rose in it, a lit candle, and perfectly folded napkins placed between nice silverware. The lights were dim, the setting romantic.
They talked quietly during dinner enjoying the food and atmosphere. Their waiter walked up to their table and asked if they were interested in getting dessert. "Oh! Cheesecake! Cheesecake!"
Luke looked at the waiter. "I think she wants cheesecake."
The waiter smiled and wrote it down. "And for you, sir?"
"I think I'll have the same please."
"Okay. I'll be back shortly."
During dessert, Lorelai suddenly dropped her fork which caused Luke to look up. "You okay?"
"I think it's time."
"Time for what?"
"Time, Luke! Time!"
"Oh. Okay… so then it's uh… time…"
"Yes, Luke! Time!"
"So then let's go!" Luke got up, pulled out his wallet, and threw a bunch of cash on the table. He helped Lorelai out of her seat and to the car.
Rory and Gigi were watching a movie at the house when the phone rang. "Hello?"
"Hey, Luke, is everything okay?"
"Yeah, we just got to the hospital."
"Oh right, your mom's water broke… guess I should have mentioned that."
"That would have been nice."
"It's okay. So she's doing alright then?"
"Yep. A bit bummed she didn't get to finish her dessert though."
"…tried to take it with her."
Rory laughed. "Yeah, sounds like something she'd do."
"Oh. I've got to go. The doctor's coming."
"Okay. Well Gigi and I will be there soon."
"Alright. Oh and can you call your grandparents?"
"See ya soon." As soon as Rory hung up the phone, it rang again. She sighed and answered it, "Hello?"
"Um… what's up?"
"Oh not much. I was just calling to see how things are since I'm coming home soon and all."
"Oh right. Well actually, mom just went into labor, so Gigi and I were about to leave for the hospital."
"Oh okay. Well tell your mom I said congratulations and everyone else I said hi."
"Okay. I will."
"Thanks. See you soon."
"Yeah… bye, dad."
Gigi looked at Rory. "Daddy called?"
Rory nodded. "Yeah, he's coming home soon."
Gigi smiled brightly. "Yay!"
"Yep. Now let's go see mom. The baby is coming."
Gigi gasped. "Really?" Rory nodded. "Cool!"
"Yes, ma'am, so let's get your coat and skedaddle."
The girls arrived at the hospital and went into the maternity ward. They found Luke walking towards the hall leading to rooms. "Luke!"
Luke turned and saw the two girls in the waiting room. "Hey, guys. She's about ready, but she was threatening me for ice chips."
"Oh okay. Well tell her I said good luck and dad said congratulations."
"Dad? You talked to Chris?"
"Yeah he called right after you did."
"Oh. Okay then. I'll let her know."
"Great. We'll be in here if you need us."
"Okay. See you later."
A couple hours later, Lorelai lay in a hospital bed holding a beautiful baby boy, William Lucas, in her arms. Luke was in a chair beside them holding his newborn daughter, Jacquelyn Mia. They were both exhausted but couldn't stop looking at their two children. "I never want to see a woman do that ever again," Luke said, certainly.
Lorelai laughed. "Ah well, you got through it… barely."
"Hey now! It was just… disgusting… not to mention painful."
Lorelai scoffed. "You weren't the one popping children out of you."
"Well no, but I never realized how strong your grip was before."
"Yeah well you still love me… even after all that icky stuff."
Luke smiled. "What can I say? I just can't help it."
A/N: So, I got ready to write my ending for this chapter/story… and then I realized I couldn't find what I'd written. Woops. So I just used my new brain instead of my old one. Oh well.
If I get enough reviews saying you all want one, I will definitely be writing a sequel. Not sure when. I may start soon depending how busy school is. Ohh! During Thanksgiving or winter break! Anyway, it'll be quite interesting.
I want to thank all my reviewers and people who have me on favorites and alerts. I'd list you all, but the list would end up longer than this story. Thank you all very much. I really appreciate your help and motivation!
