Disclaimer: I don't own them. I want to...but I dont.
Chapter 1: You need a vacation
Thursday night, Luke's Diner
"Coffee coffee coffee!" Lorelai Gilmore burst into the diner, demanding service. "I've had the worst couple days Luke." She said as she got her coffee. "Work has been crazy. And Sookie is telling me that I'm not doing what I'm supposed to be, or that I'm doing what I'm not supposed to be...I don't know what she said, but it was mean, we got into a fight, and at the time I hadn't had any coffee at all, all day, so of course I was in the worst mood-"
"Lorelai, you and Sookie are best friends. You'll make up, work will get easier. You have to loosen up. Don't do other peoples' jobs." Luke said, trying to calm Lorelai down.
"Hey! How did you know I was doing other peoples' jobs?"
"She called you. Sookie called you and told you. Jeez I can't-"
"Actually I called her." He leaned in closer to her. "You and me, we're friends right?"
"Yes..." Lorelai replied, not really knowing where Luke was going.
"Well, I've noticed that you are very overworked, and I thought..."
"You need a vacation."
"You do. And I wouldn't mind one either."
"Lucas Danes are you inviting me to go somewhere with you?"
"Well.." Luke said, getting red.
"You are! Oh my God. Luke Danes is asking me to go on a vacation. Luke Danes is asking me to go on a vacation. I am never going to get over this-" She was cut off when Luke slid something over to her.
"Here." Luke said with a slight smile on his face.
"Luke." Lorelai said, shocked. "Luke these are first class tickets to Orlando. And...Oh my God. A reservation for the Florence Inn in Disney World? Luke this is amazing. (a/n I don't remember what the hotel was that I stayed at, so I'm going to call it the Florence Inn.)
"If you don't want to-"
"Luke of course I want to! Why would you do this?"
"You needed a vacation." Luke said simply, although deep down he knew there was so much more to it.
Lorelai accepted that answer and went back to examing the papers. "Hey, umm Luke? This plane ticket is for 1:00 A.M."
"Yeah sorry, they didn't have any other time because this is last minute."
"No no it's fine. Umm so I don't see any dates on here. When are we leaving?"
"Saturday morning. Well, we have to leave Stars Hollow at 11:00 to get to the airport on time, to tomorrow night." Luke said, knowing what was coming.
"Tomorrow?! I have so many things to do before then! I have to shop and pack and call Rory, and work! I can't leave work for-Luke when are we coming home?"
"It's a 10-day trip."
"I can't leave work for 10 days!"
"Yes you can. I called Sookie, and she said it was fine."
"Go pack, shop, whatever. Be ready tomorrow at 11:00."
"Okay, but I'm never going to get up, or stay up, tonight, so..."
"I'll see you at 8?" Luke said, knowing that fighting it would be pointless.
"See you at 8!"
8:00 the crap shack
Lorelai had gotten everything she needed at the mall. She called Rory, talked with Sookie to make everything right between them, which she did, she talked with her parents, and happened to leave out who exactly she was going on this trip with, and she was packing when she heard a knock on the door. 'That must be Luke. Do I look okay? Woah Lorelai! It's Luke. You're best friend, your coffee god. Why are you obsessing over how you look?' Lorelai came downstairs to answer the door.
"Hey!" Lorelai said. "Hey Luke?" Lorelai said, noticing his 2 bags. "Is that all that you're bringing?"
"Yes why?" Luke said entering the house. Lorelai closed the door behind him.
"I have 3 1/2 bags and I'm not even closed to finishing yet."
"Lorelai, we'll only be there for 10 days, and they have washing machines."
"Be quiet and come help me pack."
"Fine." Luke said in defeat, and went upstairs to help Lorelai pack.
"Ummm, alright you go over there and get all of my shorts and tank tops, fold them and put them in that suitcase." Lorelai gave Luke instructions.
Lorelai went into her bathroom and got together all of the basics. "Hey Luke?"
"I completely forgot to pack bathing suits, so could you get those?"
"Sure where are they?"
Luke swallowed hard when he saw Lorelai's sexy string bikinis. He found his voice and asked, "Which ones?"
"All of them!" Lorelai said in a 'duh' voice, sticking her head out of the bathroom.
"My bad." Luke said sarcastically, packing the bikinis.
An hour later, all of the suitcases, Luke's 2 and Lorelai's 4, were sitting in the hallway next to the door.
"So we have about 2 hours what do we do now?" Lorelai said sitting on the couch and taking a bite out of the burger that Luke brought over.
"I don't know. Movie?" Luke suggested.
"Yeah...I guess, but I'm not in a movie mood. How bout a game?"
"A game? What kind of game?"
"I have a bunch! There's Monopoly...no too long. Life, now that's a good game." Lorelai looked over at Luke and saw his questioning expression. "Don't tell me that you've never played Life!" Luke looked at her with the same expression. "We have so much work to do." Lorelai said, getting the game of Life out. She explained the game, and in no time at all, Luke had the hang of it and they were in the middle of the game.
"I'm so tired!" Lorelai said, yawning.
"You can sleep on the plane."
"No I can't. I can never sleep on planes. They're too...planey."
"That's why you can't sleep on planes? They're too planey?"
"Yes. Now can we go on with the game?" Lorelai said, exasperated.
"You're the one who brought it up!"
"No! You brought it up! You told me that I could sleep on the plane."
"Yes but that was after you said-Aw Geez forget it!"
"Ha! I win!" Lorelai said.
"For now." Luke said quietly."
They both looked up at a knock on the door. "It's almost 11 who is that?" Lorelai asked. Luke knew exactly what was going on, having set it up himself.
"I don't know, go answer it and you'll find out."
Lorelai gave him a glare before getting up to get the door.
"Hello I'm Pete and I will be your driver this evening." Lorelai looked at Luke, her mouth wide open.
"You did this?" She asked him.
"Yeah well, I didn't want to leave my car in the airport car park so..."
"Oh my God Luke! You're the best!" She went over and gave him a hug, and Luke couldn't help but smell her Jasmine perfume.
"Yeah, yeah." Luke said, overlooking the spark that he felt when they touched.
Lorelai felt the same thing, and stayed in his arms a little longer than necessary. "This is going to be the best vacation ever!" Lorelai said, walking out the door with a bag.
"I hope so." Luke said when she was out of earshot, and followed her out with the rest of the bags.
