Title: Had to See Me

Author: Margaret (tvrox)

Summary: I'm not that great with summaries. It's a Trory, though, that's for sure.

Rating: PG, maybe PG-13 later on.

Feedback? Yes! My first GG fic.

Author's Note: I'm not particularly a fan of Tristan, or any of the guys, for that matter, I just write whatever I'm inspired to write. Also, when this fic takes place, the season finale and season two didn't happen, so Rory and Dean are broken up (but are friends) and Tristan hasn't left. I haven't quite decided what's up with Lorelai yet, so it may end up to be L/L.

Rory walked into her house, dropped her backpack on the floor in the hall, and hung up her coat. "Mom!" she yelled.

"Upstairs," returned Lorelai. Rory walked upstairs and found Lorelai sitting in her room listening to music. She flopped down on the bed.

"Thank GOD it's Friday!" said Rory. "I'm free from Paris, Tristan, and furthermore HELL for two blissful days!"

"Hey, you know what I think we should do?" piped up Lorelai.

"Get lots of coffee and mock Luke while in the process of purchasing it?" guessed Rory.

"Acutally, I hadn't thought of that, but it's a good idea. I think we should have Sookie and Lane over for a movie night."

"Don't we have to go to Grandma and Grandpa's for dinner tonight?" Rory reminded her.

"Nope," said Lorelai with a grin. "They're in Europe, or Martha's Vineyard, or wherever it is they go at this time of year."

"Okay," agreed Rory. "I'll call Lane, you call Sookie."

"Deal. Oh, I love movie nights!"

* * * *

Having made all of their plans, Lorelai and Rory headed into town to get the movie and junk food. First, however, they stopped at Luke's to get some coffee, and do that mocking.

Luke looked up as the bell over his door jingled. There they were, the two most important people in his life. "Girls, girls," he said to them. "You were just here an hour ago."

"We need coffee," said Lorelai with a smile. "And besides, you shouldn't mind at all. You can't get enough of seing us." Lorelai and Rory giggled, and it was all Luke could do to keep from blushing. It was true, seeing them come in that door each time they did completely made his day.

(A/N: I made a promise to a friend [you know who you are] that this fic wouldn't be cheesy, but I love cheesy stuff, and I couldn't help it.)

"No," said Luke with authority. "I'm not giving you any coffee."

"Pleeeeeeease, Luke! I need coffee! Just one cup!" begged Lorelai with a grin.

Luke couldn't resist that smile. "All right, ONE CUP."

"Thank you thank you thank you!" cried Lorelai. She took the coffee and she and Rory left.

The Gilmore girls walked on to Doose's Market. They began walking up and down the aisles, taking one of everything that was even remotely bad for them. All of a sudden, someone tapped Rory on the shoulder. She whirled around. It was Tristan.

"Excuse me, Miss," he said, "do you know where I might find a Mary Gilmore?"

"He really is the Evil Boy," whispered Lorelai to Rory.

"Tristan," said Rory somewhat impatiently. "What are you doing in my town, let alone in THIS STORE?" She was becoming angry.

"Well, you know, Mary, I'm madly in love with you."

"Oh boy," said Rory angrily.

"I just had to see you," said Tristan.

"Well, Evil One," said Lorelai. "Now that you've seen her, you have no business being here, so you can just leave."

"My mind is filled with thoughts of you," he continued, ignoring Lorelai.

"Leave," said Rory calmly, but her voice was clearly filled with hate.

"I can't sleep at night, Mary." Just then, Dean walked up to them.

"Tristan," he said, "I don't want to get physical, but you need to leave. Nobody, especially not me, wants you here. I'm sure Rory will support my decision to make you get out of the store."

He pushed Tristan out the door of the market and over to his car, but Tristan had no intention of leaving. He turned on the car and began driving. He knew just where he was going.
