Summary: Episode 6.09 going differently. Everything up to episode 6.09 has happened. What if Rory told Lorelai who helped her realize that she was making a mistake dropping out of Yale. Lit. Read and Review!

A/N: So, yes, I am still alive. I have not given up on my stories, and I hope that none have you either. I just haven't been into Gilmore Girls lately, and that affects my writing. But, I started watching Season 2 and 3 lately, and, well, here's the next chapter. And don't forget to review please. I always love reading what you think!


"I'm so sorry we have to do this." Lorelai whispered into the phone as Rory slept on the couch.

"It's okay Lorelai, really." Luke reassured her. "We can go to the lake anytime, Rory needs you right now."

"I know," Lorelai said nodding, "but, you made all the plans and arrangements and everything."

"Lorelai, you and I both know that Rory is more important than any lake. We can go later also. It's not like anything's written in ink." Luke assured her.

"Are you sure?" Lorelai asked looking at her sleeping daughter.

"I'm sure." Luke said. "I'll see you tonight?" Luke asked.

"Yeah, bye." Lorelai said.



"Who was that?" Jess asked as Luke hung up the phone.

"Lorelai." Luke said.

"Is Rory okay?" Jess asked looking at Luke concerned.

"Yeah, she's fine." Luke said. "Wait, how'd you know that something was wrong with Rory?" he asked.

"I didn't. It's just that I was at her house when the blonde dick showed up." Jess answered.

"What were you doing at her house Jess?" Luke asked crossing his arms.

"Lorelai asked me to take coffee to Rory, and we were talking afterwards." Jess explained calmly, as he walked behind the counter to grab a dish towel. "What's with the panic attack Luke?" he asked smirking.

"So, you were at Lorelai's house this whole time?" Luke asked ignoring Jess' question.

"Yes." Jess answered slowly, not understanding Luke's confusion.

After a moment of Luke struggling with his inner thoughts, he sighed, "Okay."

"Uh, okay Luke." Jess answered as he took the dish towel, and walked over to the tables, and began wiping the tables.


"Hey honey." Lorelai said as Rory came into the kitchen and pulled out a chair to sit in.

"Hey," Rory said as she put her head on the table.

"How are you feeling?" she asked her daughter.

"It's not how I wanted things to end, mom." Rory answered as she lifted her head off the table.

"I know honey," Lorelai said smoothing her daughter's hair. "But, breakups never go the way you plan them."

"Is it bad that I'm actually relieved?" Rory asked worried.

"I think," Lorelai sighed, "I think, things ended between you and Logan long before today. The person that you became, it just wasn't who you were. And when you realized that, you changed what you needed to change." Lorelai finished.

"You really believe that mom?" Rory asked.

"I do." Lorelai said nodding. "So," she added, changing the subject. "Are you hungry?"

"You're going to cook?" Rory asked skeptically.

"God no." Lorelai said shaking her head frantically. "But I do know of a very cute diner man, whose life purpose is to feed me." She added smiling.

"Let me just take a shower, then we'll go." Rory said as she started getting up from the chair.

"Hurry up." Lorelai said to Rory's retreating back.


"Get out, Taylor." Luke was heard yelling as the Gilmore's entered the diner.

"I just want you to think about it Luke," Taylor answered.

"I already thought about it, and the answer is no." Luke said as he threw the dish towel on the counter, looking ready to pounce.

"Okay, I'll just come back at a better time, when you're not so uptight." Taylor replied as he made his way past the Gilmore's, and out the door.

"What was that about?" Lorelai asked as she leaned over the counter and gave Luke a quick kiss.

Rory came and sat next to Lorelai at the counter, and waited for Luke to respond.

"Taylor's holding another new town event in honor of thanksgiving coming up, and he wanted me to get into the holiday spirit and decorate the diner." Luke replied.

"Uh, I'm sorry, but has Taylor met you?" Lorelai asked, looking back and forth between Rory and Luke.

"Apparently, he figured, since you and I are engaged now, you would use your power that you have on me to convince me to decorate the diner." Luke said using air quotes.

"What?" Lorelai and Rory asked at the same time.

Luke just nodded his head.

"Oh my God. Taylor is actually weirder than we thought he was." Rory said laughing.

"He was right about one thing though." Lorelai said smiling.

"Oh, and what was he right about?" Luke asked raising an eyebrow.

"I do have power over you to convince you to do whatever I want." Lorelai answered staring at him.

"Oh boy." Rory said as she turned away from the engaged couple and looked at the menu on the counter.

"You do not have a power over me." Luke insisted.

"I do too." Lorelai countered.

"Hey Luke, can you just agree with her. You know how stubborn she is." Rory interrupted. "And some of us are hungry here."

"Hey." Lorelai pouted. "I am not stubborn."

"Sure Rory." Luke said ignoring Lorelai's pouting. "What can I get you?"

"I would like a cheeseburger, with extra fries, and a large cup of coffee." Rory answered sweetly.

"Fat with extra fried oil and a large cup of a heart attack coming right up." Luke grumbled as he wrote down the order and gave it to Caesar.

A/N: I know it's kinda short, but at least it's an update right? I have an idea for the next chapter, and I've already started writing it! Review please, and you'll get an update sooner!!
