2. Love Is A Rocket

"So, did you open my gift?"

"Of course."

"What did you think?" (I'm nervous. Why am I nervous?)

(Damn, damn, damn.) "I thought...wow!"

"Yeah, pretty cool, right?" (You remember that night, Rory?)

"Soo...cool!" (Logan, tell me what it means, please, for the love of God, for the love of me.)

"I'm glad you like it." (I hope you know what it means.)

"Like it?...love it!" (I love you. To hell with this rocket. I love you.)

"I'm so glad you got it." (We'll get through this long-distance thing, Rory.)

"Oh, yeah...totally."

"When I left, I suddenly got worried you wouldnt get it. But of course you got it." (You get that I love you, right Ace? Since that night we watched The Long Morrow in the poolhouse, I loved you.)

"Yeah, of course. Of course I got it. I loved it!" (I miss you. I wish I could see your eyes, your smile, so I could figure out what you want to tell me.)

"I knew you would. Alright, Ace, I gotta go. I just wanted to tell you I touched down. I'll call you later."

"Okay...bye...and thank you." (For calling, for making me happy. For the rocket, even.)

"Of course." (You're my true love, Rory.)
