A/N: Okay so I originally wrote this on May 29 at like 1:13 in the morning because I had mad crazy insomnia. And while I tried everything to get to sleep, including music, nothing helped. Although the song I was listening to gave me some inspiration. Oh, it only took me fourteen minutes to write this, so if it sucks, blame it on lack of sleep!
Disclaimer: I don't own Luke or Lorelai, or anyone else in Stars Hollow. I just live there and enjoy the view of Luke. . . . and Jess. . . . when he's around. Italics is from the episode.
Disclaimer 2: I don't own the song "I Love You" The song belongs to Sarah McLachlan, who is a very talented singer/songwriter.
Summary: What if Lorelai told Luke she loved him after he broke up with her in Say Something?
LUKE: Your mother, your father. The Gilmores will always be in your life.
LORELAI: I can cut them off.
LUKE: No, you just can't cut them off. It doesn't work that way, and they'll
never feel differently about me, ever.
LORELAI: It doesn't matter, because they're gone. That's it. They are gone.
I can do that.
LUKE: I can't have this out right now.
LORELAI: Okay, when? Where?
LUKE: I need more time! I told you that.
LORELAI: I'm afraid of this 'more time' stuff. I'm afraid it'll take forty
years and that's not good.
LORELAI: We'll miss our middle. I want a middle. And the town is dividing us
up. I need that to stop.
LORELAI: Luke. I am all in. I'm all in. Please trust me. Let me show you
what a great girlfriend I can be. But I can't wait. We can't wait. I need to
know what you're thinking right now.
LUKE: Fine. You want to know what I'm thinking right now? That I can't be in
this relationship. It's too much.
LORELAI stunned: No.
Lorelai watched Luke walk out the door. He had just broken up with her in Doose's in front of everyone. And the worst part is, he didn't get to her what she had to say. She wanted to tell him she loves him. Part of a song had came to her mind when she thought of the word love. 'Oh, but every time I'm close to you, there's too much I can't say, and you just walk away. And I forgot to tell you, I love you.' She had to tell him, he needed to know before he walked out of the relationship. Lorelai opened the door and shouted, "Luke, wait." She stepped outside the door as he turned around.
"What!" he said, sounding very annoyed and very mad.
Lorelai looked at the ground. "I love you." She whispered out into the cold February air.
She must have whispered it loud enough because she heard Luke's footsteps coming closer to her. Lorelai found herself wrapped in a warm embrace. Luke kissed the top of her head and whispered in her ear, "I love you too."
They stayed in the embrace for a few moments, then Lorelai asked, "What now?"
"We just have to take it one day at a time." Luke replied.
Lorelai nodded. "Want to steal Taylor's ribbons?" she asked with a wicked smile on her face.
"Oh yeah." Luke took her hand and they both smiled at each other before walking back into Doose's.
Okay I know, that totally sucked. Maybe I'll add on to it. What do you guys think? To add or not to add?
