A/N: Sorry for the long wait. I just wasn't too inspired on this story since some people didn't really like it.

Chapter 2: Involuntary Manslaughter

"What happened?" Lorelai asked.

Rory sighed. "Logan dragged me out to this Life & Death Brigade thing. I don't know. They were all drunk, and I should have known not to get into the car with them."

"So you were in an accident?" Lorelai asked.

"No, We were playing musical cars?" Rory tried explaining. "It's where we go to an empty parking lot and we have one more car than there are parking spots, and it's just this stupid game, and a car hit my side." Rory winced. "I don't even know if they alright." Rory cried.

"Jess, can you go check and see if everyone is alright?" Lorelai asked.

Jess nodded. "What are the names?"

"Logan Huntzberger, Collin McCrae, and Finn McClyde." Rory said weakly.

Jess nodded and walked out the door.

"God. I just... feel so stupid." Rory told her mom. "I hope they are alright."

"It's okay, Babe. I'm just glad you're okay."

Just then the door opened and the doctor walked in.

"Hello, Lorelai Gilmore?" The doctor asked.

"That's me." Lorelai grinned.

"She named me after herself." Rory told the doctor. "So, you can just call me Rory."

"Ah. Rory. Okay. I'm Dr. Mitchell. So let's check you out." The cute doctor smiled.

Lorelai turned to Rory and mouthed 'Dirty'. Rory just laughed.

After the Doctor was done examining her he flipped the chart close.

"There are some good news and bad news. The break in your left arm is not as bad as she imagined so no surgery will be necessary, but you have a broken rib that is slightly pushed up against you right rib that we need to keep close eye on until it heals. The On-Call Surgeon will come in a little later and take you up for X-Rays to determine if he wants to do surgery. The thing that worries us the most right now is your brain. There is a slight swelling in your brain right now that has caused us not to be able to really see if there are any small bleeds. The small bleeds could gradually worsen and could put you into a coma. We need to continue taking you down for scans until we know for sure."

"Are there any signs of the bleeding in her brain? Headaches or anything?" Lorelai asked worried.

"That's the thing with these situations. There aren't really any signs, except for seizing. If she does begin to seize call for a nurse immediately." The doctor said sternly "... and after that she will be rushed to the OR for an emergency surgery."

"Okay." Lorelai nodded trying to hold back her tears.

"Any more questions?" The doctor asked.

Rory just laid there soaking in all of the information.

Lorelai shook her head.

"Okay, try and rest up, but try not and sleep for the next few hours. Alright?" The Doctor asked.

Rory nodded.

"Okay." The doctor left the room as Jess walked in with a solemn face.

"How were they?" Lorelai asked. Jess walked over to the other side of the bed and sat down on the chair. He leaned in closer to the bed and grabbed Rory's hand.

"Rory." Jess said quietly. Rory turned in his direction.

"Colin McCrae passed away instantly at the sight of the accident." Jess told her.

Rory opened her mouth to talk but nothing came out.

"Finn was rushed into surgery the second he got here. He had several internal injuries and major internal bleeding. From what I gathered things aren't looking too good." Jess said. "His liver was already pretty messed up due to excessive drinking, so they are hoping to find him a new one, quickly."

"Logan." Rory croaked out as tears fell down her face.

"He has a few broken bones, but nothing too major, but... He was taken in after he got everything check and bandaged." Jess told her.

"Taken in?" Lorelai asked.

Jess looked at Rory who was looking intently at him.

"Involuntary manslaughter." Jess told them quietly.

Rory let out a sob.

"I should've stopped them. I could've just stopped them." Rory cried.

"Ror- This isn't your fault. They were stupid to put a drunk driver behind the wheel." Jess told her.

"They were drunk too. They weren't thinking straight. I was sober, I should've stopped him, but... God! Why?" Rory cried. "Why did this happen to us?" Rory cried. "What about the other people that hit us?"

Jess shrugged. "They were fine."

Rory cried and shook her head. "I screwed up."

Just then the door opened and Richard and Emily walked in.

"Rory." Emily said as she walked straight to the bed.

"Grandma." Rory cried. "I'm so sorry."

"Rory. How are you?" Emily asked worried.

"Fine." Rory looked down.

"Lorelai." Richard acknowledged her presence.

"You're here?" Emily asked, her voice full of surprise.

"Why is it surprising?" Lorelai asked.

"It's not." Richard said sternly toward Emily.

"You." Emily said toward Jess.

"You did this again!" Emily said.

"Mom!" Lorelai said a little too loudly. "It wasn't Jess."

"I was just here to see my best-friends newborn baby, and I saw Rory being pulled in. They didn't have any of her information so I gave it to them, and I called Lorelai." Jess told them.

"Oh." Was the only thing that came from Emily.

"So what happened?" Richard asked.

"It was that boy, Logan." Lorelai told them.

"Nonsense, Logan would never put Rory in danger." Emily said.

"Then why is she in a hospital bed?" Jess asked angrily.

"It would be best if you kept your mouth shut." Emily told him sternly.

"Mom, don't talk to Jess like that!" Lorelai told her. "You always treat people like crap! It's amazing how you were able to keep Dad around all this time!"

"And that is why Rory ran to us?" Emily shot back

"Yeah well she wasn't exactly thinking straight now was she, and If I remember correctly, she never got into this much trouble when she was living under my roof. You just aren't very maternal are you?" Lorelai yelled. "I got pregnant at a young age, and now Rory is hurt! I bet NOW you regret going against me?" Lorelai shouted.

"Lorelai, quite down." Richard said calmly.

"Guys..." Rory said as her eyes went to the back of her head as she started seizing.

"Rory!" Lorelai cried.

Jess quickly ran to the door and yelled out, "WE NEED HELP OVER HERE!"

Richard started clicking the nurse call repeatedly.

"What's going on?" Emily asked frantically as Doctors and Nurses ran into the room and started unhooking her and rolled her out the room.

"Everyone out!" A doctor yelled toward Lorelai, Emily, Richard, and Jess.

They four of them walked into the waiting room. Lorelai and Jess sat on one side.

Lorelai had silent tears rolling down her face. Jess turned rubbed her pack supportively.

"Do you want me to call Luke?" Jess asked. Lorelai nodded.

Jess got up and made the call.

"Are you the family of Lorelai Gilmore?" A Doctor asked as he walked in.

"Yes." Lorelai said as she got up quickly.

"Did Dr. Mitchell go over all the details earlier?" The Doctor asked.

"Some." Lorelai told him.

"Well, Ms. Gilmore's brain is bleeding, which we weren't able to detect because of the swelling. We need get in there and stop the bleeding. There are some risks though."

"Risks?" Emily asked.

"Yes, there is a chance she could lose sense such as speaking, or she could lose memory. There is also the possibility that the damage to her brain is far worse than expected. We just have to hope for the best." The doctor said.

"Hope for the best? You are doctor, for god-sake! You're supposed to make the best happen!" Richard yelled.

"I'm sorry, Sir." The doctor said weakly before leaving.

"This is propostorous!" Richard said sitting back down.

"I'm sure they are doing their best, dad." Lorelai said weakly.

"He's on his way." Jess told Lorelai as he sat back down next to her.

"Okay." Lorelai nodded as she sat there quietly.

After 10 minutes of silence Lorelai got up quickly and walked out.

"Where you going?" Emily asked.

"Going for a walk." Lorelai said.

Jess quickly got up and went after her.

As Lorelai walked out of the hospital, Jess had caught up to her.

"Lorelai." Jess called after her.

She stopped and turned around and he saw her face completely red and tears streaming down her face.

"I had to get... out of... There." She said between hiccups.

Jess nodded looking into her eyes. "I... She's by baby." Lorelai whispered.

"I know." Jess nodded trying to stay strong.

"I can't lose her." Lorelai told him as she sobbed.

"You won't. She will fight through this." Jess told her.

"Lorelai." Luke said running up from behind her. "I got here as soon possible." He said as he hugged her closely.

"Luke..." Lorelai cried into his shoulder.

"Sh... She'll get through this." He whispered.

"We'll all get through this." Luke said as he looked over Lorelai's shoulder at Jess who quickly turned around and went to sit on the bench.

He put his head in his hands and let tears fall from his face.
