Rory held on to her son's hand tightly as they made their way into the diner. She couldn't help it but keep on glancing at her as much as she could. She wanted to make sure he was okay for some reason.
"Mommy, your hurting my hand." Nick mumbled as the little bell on top of the diner as they entered.
"Oh, sorry." Rory sighed. She was going to have to face them pretty soon, and there was no better time but the present. As soon as they entered the diner, everyone who was there turned their attention to the door. Many people gasped or whispered something to each other. 'God, they already know that I'm here. And when they see that I'm with my three year old son then the people will really start talking.' She thought to herself. When she finally caught a glimpse of who was looking at her, she took a deep breathe. It was Lorelai, like usual she was sitting at the counter. To her surprise, her mom just jumped off the counter and ran to her daughter to pull her into a tight hug. Making Rory let go of her son's hand.
"Oh my god, are you really here?" Lorelai cried as she held on to her daughter. After about five minutes, Nick just looked at Lorelai and pulled on her shirt which made Lorelai look at him.
"She can't breathe." Nick stated. Rory smiled at his boldness and then pulled away from her mother. "Mommy, why is this lady hugging you?" He asked.
"Mommy?" Lorelai asked in confusion and Rory just nodded. "Umm, okay, well, let's go over there. Luke will be super happy to see you." She lead her daughter and her son over to the counter. Where Rory sat next to her mom and picked up Nick and placed him on her lap.
"I'm hungry." Nick whined.
"Oh, sweetie, umm, when Luke comes back from the kitchen he will get you something to eat." Lorelai smiled. Nick smiled back and then whispered something in his mom's ear.
"He says that he likes you." Rory sighed, but then smiled also. Then, almost instantly, Luke walked out of the kitchen.
"No matter if you say that you have had no coffee at all today, I am not giving you any coffee. So don't get any..." Luke stopped when he saw that Rory was in the seat next to Lorelai, and had a kid in her arms. "Rory?" He smiled then looked at Lorelai who nodded. "Wow."
"Yeah, I'm pretty wowed about it myself." Rory smiled.
"Mommy, wowed is not a word." Nick said rolling his eyes. "When you said that you could have at least used a proper sentence."
"Okay, no more sentence correcting for mommy today." Rory stated. "How about you look at the menu and see what catches your interest. Okay?" Nick just nodded.
"Wow, really smart kid." Luke sighed.
"Yeah." Rory replied.
"Well, he has good genes." Lorelai stated then stopped. "I think. Okay, well, can we cut to the chase? I really don't like all this small talk." They nodded and Nick looked up from his menu.
"Yeah, cut to the chase." Nick agreed, which made them laugh.
"What is your name?" Lorelai asked.
"Nicholas Lucas Mariano." Nick replied. Luke and Lorelai looked like something had just knocked the wind out of them. "That's what Rory calls me when she gets really mad at me."
"Nick, I told you not to call me Rory, it's either mom or mommy." Nick just rolled his eyes.
"Mariano?" They both asked at the same time. Rory sighed and nodded.
"Yeah." Rory whispered.
"How can……" Luke started but Rory cut him off.
"Details later. Nick is right here." Rory stated. "Okay, well, who else is hungry but me? 'Cause I am vanished." Lorelai nodded.
"Me too." She agreed.
"Thank you so much for letting us stay here." Rory thanked the couple as they entered the Danes' home. As Lorelai was turning the knob, Rory noticed that she had an engagement ring on, and a marriage ring. "Umm, I'm going to go put Nick to sleep and then we can talk." Lorelai and Luke just nodded as they watched mother and son go into Rory's old room.
"Oh my god." Lorelai sighed. "She has a kid. Wow, she has a kid. I am a grandma. How is that possible? Huh? I am too young to be a grandma. And another huge detail is that it's Jess' kid. How can that be? Oh my god. I'm hyperventelating. I'm freaking out."
"Shh…" Luke soothed her as they both plopped on the couch. "I'm sure there is a perfectly logical explenation. And I'm not too happy about this either, I mean, I am a grandpa.You're not the only one that has a reason to be freaked out right now."
"I know, but, come on. We haven't even told her that we're married yet. That's what happens when you are completely out of touch with your kid for three years. She has reproduces with Jess." Lorelai sighed and moved a little towards Luke.
"Okay, let's not get gross now." Luke stated. "But, look at him, he looks like a great kid. He's super smart and completely like you and Rory, and not to mention Jess."
"But their not married. They're not even together. That kid has no father."
"How do you know that she hasn't told him?"
"Well, duh, he would have told us." Lorelai put her hands on her lap. "This wasn't how it was supposed to happen. I was supposed to be there when she had a kid, and she was supposed to be the maid of honor at our wedding. Everything is exactly the opossite of how things are supposed to be." She rested her head on Luke's shoulder, and he kissed the top of her head.
About ten minutes later, Rory walked into the living room and found them in that exact position.
"Umm, sorry to interrupt anything. But, can I join you?" Rory asked.
"Of course, babe. You can always come in here." Lorelai smiled and released from Luke's grip. "Okay, let's start from square one." She said as soon as Rory was seated on a chair near them.
"Okay. Well, I see that your married." Rory pointed to Lorelai's rings.
"Yes, we are married. We have been for about a year now." Lorelai sighed. "Well, I see that you have a kid."
"Yeah, I do. Umm, it was some time after we had our fight about Yale. Well, Jess visited me at Grandma and Grandpa's house. He told me he wrote a book, and then I got into a huge fight with Logan. Which resulted us to break up, anyways, later that night Jess visited me again and we… umm… slept together." She could see Luke squirming in his seat. "Well, he left the morning after and we never got to talk. And about two weeks later, I got these weird cravings for healthy food and… that resulted in Nick. I pretty much moved out of the grandparent's house after that and raised Nick by myself when I moved in with Paris on an apartment off campus. I have finished Yale. I finished it when Nick was about two. I got help from my friends when I had classes and stuff."
Lorelai and Luke looked at each other and then at Rory.
"I know that you don't understand the whole fighting with Logan, and mostly everything else. But, it all happened. And now here I am, I wanted to see you again and tell you about Nick. And Yale. I just took one step at a time."
"Oh, I'm so proud of you, honey." Lorelai smiled and went over to her daughter and gave her a giant hug. "You doing all these wonderful things by yourself. And having the courage to come back here after all those years. Now I'm certain that I raised you right."
"I never had a doubt." Rory smiled.
"Rory, I'm very happy for you." Luke nodded. "You seem like you have everything in your life under control…" Rory cut him off by running over there and giving him a hug.
"Thank you for taking care of mom." Rory whispered.
"Hey, I heard that. I don't need anyone to take care of me. I am a very independent woman. Just because Rory, here, raised a child and graduated Yale gives her no right to bully those of us who don't have that child and Yale thing going for them. But, I guess I will forgive her because she is my daughter." Lorelai laughed.
"Okay, but I have one question. How did you deal when Nick asked you about his father?" Luke asked.
"I told him the truth. That Jess loved him very much, but he had other responsibilities. And that he should forgive him for not being here." Rory's face dropped a little when she talked about Jess. "I'm sure Jess would have loved him. But, I couldn't just ruined everything he had going for him by dropping a kid on his hands."
"You know, he looks exactly like Jess." Lorelai smiled.
"That's what hurts the most." Rory sniffled. Lorelai looked at Luke then walked over to her daughter and comforted her. She then shooed her husband away so she could have some qualaty time with Rory.
"I'm so glad my baby's home." Lorelai whispered into Rory's ear, held her closely.
