This is my first Gilmore Girls fanfic, so please review.
Dedicated To: Jen, Happy Late Birthday!
Rory wandered the empty halls of her mother's inn, and thought about him. It was the sixth time today in which she found her mind wandering back to him. His harsh words echoed in the halls, and his teasing face followed hers. She sighed as she saw images of him and her playing in the town, taking long walks around the pond, and of course images of that night. Tears welled up in her eyes as she felt his hands comfort her, his eyes brimming with tears as she hung her head over the side of the toilet. There she was Rory Gilmore, broken down, hurt, and confused. "It's all my fault," she cried as she felt herself falling to the ground.
"Rory!" Lorelai screamed, running to catch her daughter. Rory's head made a loud banging sound as it hit the hard wood floor.
"Hello," a grumpy voice answered. "Luke, it's me and um Ro- Rory's in the hospital," Lorelai sobbed into the phone. "What, huh how?" Luke asked back, now fully awake. "Hold on I'll be right there." Luke quickly hung up the phone and hopped out of bed.
It had been three weeks since most people had seen Rory in town and her sudden appearance the other day startled many. Her hair was in tangles and she had bruises on her face. The first thing everyone had assumed was that her fiancé had taken out his anger on her. Luke had fought with every town's person swearing up and down that Jess hadn't done anything. Luke sighed, "Jess-." When Rory and Jess had come back to town two months ago, their engagement shocked everyone. Dean being the big lump he was, was the first to pitch a fit but there they were awaiting approval from Lorelai and Luke.
"God Jess, what have you done now."
Jess walked back and forth across the flat he and Rory had bought as a early wedding gift. His hands ran through his hair as he watched with a pained expression as the phone rang over and over again.
"Hi you've reached Jess" "-And Rory" "-We're unavailable to come to the phone right now" "-But leave a message and we'll get back to you" "-ASAP!" Rory's laughter echoed after their message and a loud beep broke through leading to an even louder voice.
"Jess, you are dead, what have you done to Rory? She's in the hospital; you better get over here now if you ever want to see my daughter again! And trust me if I find out that any of this was your fault, you might as well not even show up."
Jess sighed and grabbing his coat off the couch ran out to his car. "Not again."
Lorelai and Luke watched as Jess walked unsure into the hospital room that Rory was lying in. "Jess," Luke started, but was soon interrupted by Lorelai. "What happened, and don't you lie to me."
"I can- can't tell you," he said pulling up a chair next to her bed. His hand took hers as tears filled his eyes, but he quickly wiped them away.
"Tell now or so help me I will make sure you never come in contact with her again.
" Fine," he said after looking at Rory's sleeping face. "I'll tell you but please don't interrupt until I'm done."
