A/N: Ok, I've had this fic haunting me for quite a while now. So, I have no idea how to explain this fic. The italics are what happened in the past to help you catch up. I don't feel like writing it so that's just a tid-bit of what happened. But I will tell you this, Luke and Lorelai broke up. Lorelai goes to Rory for comfort, but Rory drops the bomb on her and said that she was quitting Yale. Anything non-italics are what's happening in present time.

Disclaimer: I hate that I don't own Gilmore Girls. But kudos to ASP for creating it. Totally made my day!

"Luke. Don't walk out on me." cried Lorelai, trying to stop Luke from walking out of her front door.

"I'm sorry Lorelai. But I'm gonna need time to think about this." he says, trying to get away.

"Luke please. We can get pass this."

"I'm sorry." he says, then he walked out the door. Lorelai looked at the now closed door helplessly. Had that just happened?

"Hello, mom." said Rory in a quiet voice.

"Hey Rory." replied Lorelai in a helpless voice. "Where are you?"

"I'm at a café, down here in New Haven. Can you come here? I have to talk to you about something."

"Sure sweets. I have to talk to you about something too."

(A/N: this part is rushed. So go with it.)

"Mom, I'm not going back to school." says Rory with confidence.


"I'm not going back to school."

"This cannot be happening."

"I'd figured I'd take a year off from school to figure out what I really want to do."

"And where are you gonna stay?"

"I thought I'd go back home to Stars Hollow."

"No. no. no. you can't come home unless you are back at Yale."


"Oh, Lorelai come in. you've got great timing. Jackson is out with the kids and his parents. So we can have a girls night out. What do you say? Lorelai? Are you ok?"

"It's over Sook. I don't have anyone anymore."

"What are you talking about?"

"Luke. Rory. They're gone. I've lost them."

"What do you mean you lost them?"

"Luke and I broke up and Rory quit school and moved out."

"Oh. Honey. I'm so sorry. Is there anything I can do?"

"Nothing Sookie. I just really need to get out of here."

"Of course. You go home and I'll come check on you later."

"No. I mean I need to get out of here. From Stars Hollow. I can't take it anymore. I need a break from here."

"Lorelai. What are you saying?"

"Maybe I should just go to some motel or something."

"No. that's ok. I have a friend, she's great. She lives in New York. She has two bedroom apartment. She's not living with anyone. Actually, she's looking for a room-mate right now. You can stay with her for a while."

"Really? Oh. That would be so great. Thanks Sookie."

time laps to a few weeks after Lorelai left.


"Rory. What are you doing here?"

"I wanted to talk to mom. But I couldn't find her anywhere."

"Rory, you don't know?"

"Know what?"

"Lorelai isn't here. She, left. She moved away."

"She what? Why? Where?"

"She moved away. I have no idea where. I talked to Sookie , she said that Lorelai left, she has no idea where also and she has no idea when she'll come back."

"Oh. God this is my fault. I did this."

"What? No. I did this. We broke up. She left."

"You two broke up?"

"Yeah. You didn't know?"

"No. I thought she left cause I dropped out of school. My god. That must have been what she wanted to talk to me about."

"You dropped out of school?"

"Yeah. But I'm going back. And I thought I'd come home and tell her. But she's gone." at this point, Rory broke off sobbing. Luke took her into his hands.

"Hey. Ssshhh. Don't worry. You know you can still come home. The house is there. And it's still yours. She could still come back."

"Luke. Will you stay with me tonight at the house?"


8 months later

Rory slowly opened the door to the masters bedroom. She walked inside carefully not to make any noise. She sees a lump on the bed and knew that she will succeed this time. She slowly made her way to the bed and was about to jump when…"BOOH!"

She yelped and jumped back. "You are so mean." she pouted crossing her arms across her chest. He took her hands and pulled her down next to her. She's still pouting.

"Aw. Come on. It's not like you weren't gonna jump on my bed to wake me up, Or shake me vigorously?" he said, still grinning.

"Why is it, that even though I wake up, before your usual waking up time, you still beat me at that?"

"Well, when you have attempted it repeatedly every time you come home, I kinda get use to it."

"One day. I swear I am gonna get you. And you will be so surprised that your heart jumps out of your chest."

"We all have our dreams."

"Oh you'll see. It's gonna happen one day."

"Mh-hm. Hey, you hungry?"


"Do you want some pancakes with bacon and eggs?"

"Yes please."

"Ok. Go get my stuff ready downstairs. I'll be down in a minute."

"Ok. Love you daddy."

"Love you too honey." Rory smiled and left Luke resting on his bed.
