Hey guys! I'm back with the sequel to How It Was Supposed to Be. Please read and tell me what you think!

Disclaimer: I do not own Gilmore Girls or anything affiliated with the show. If I did own it, do you really think I would be writing on here? Didn't think so...


"Um...hi. Is Jess there?"

"No he's not. Can I take a message?" the woman asked.

"Yeah. Can you just tell him to call his uncle back, preferably not when he knows I'm at work?"

The woman laughed, "Sure. I'll make sure that he does."

"Okay," Luke hesitated, "Thank you."

"You're welcome!" the other line said chipper, before hanging up.

'That was strange,' he thought.

"Lu-ke!" called Lorelai.


She came into the living room looking completely frazzled.

"I need you to give me about a gallon of coffee. Pronto."

"Why would you want to rot out your insides?" he asked.

"Because too much alcohol would kill me," Lorelai answered, like it was the most obvious thing in the world.

At Luke's perplexed face, she explained further, "My mother is coming today. To Stars Hollow and I need something to take the edge off. And like I said, too much alcohol would kill me."

She paused for a second, "You know what, scratch that. I still need to find my shoe."

Luke watched amused as Lorelai ran around the house in a frenzy, looking for her other shoe.

Just then, the doorbell rang.

"Oh no! The Wicked Witch of the West has landed her broomstick," Lorelai exclaimed, "Where is my other shoe?"

"Did you check the oven?" Luke asked.

"The oven!"

Lorelai quickly ran into the kitchen and opened the oven, just as the doorbell rang for the second time.

"Ah ha! Here it is! Thank you, thank you!" she kissed Luke before opening the front door.

On the doorstep was a very upset-looking Emily.

"Lorelai! Do you know how rude it is to make your guests ring the doorbell more than once?"

"Hello to you too mom and just so you know, you are not my guest."

"Excuse me?" she asked, "You invited me here Lorelai."

"No, you invited yourself here, remember? At last week's dinner, you asked me what I was doing this weekend. I said, 'I'm going shopping for the inn.'"

Emily interrupted, "I did no such thing!"

But Lorelai just continued to talk over her, "Then you said, 'That sounds like fun. I'll come with.'"

Her mother just sighed, "Are you finished Lorelai or do you want to continue with your babbling?"

With that, Emily turned and made her way back to her car.

Lorelai looked back at Luke and raised her eyebrow, "Hey, you okay? It looks like you're in deep thought."

"I'm fine. I'll talk to you about it later, okay?"

She was still uncertain, but she let it go.


Lorelai looked towards her mom and saw that she was tapping her foot impatiently.

"Do you think if I pour a bucket of water on her, she'll melt?"

Luke chuckled, "Why don't you ask her?"

Giving her husband one last kiss, she took off for the car.

Before Luke closed the front door, he heard:

"Hey mom, can I throw a bucket of water on you?"

"Excuse me Lorelai?"

Luke just chuckled again before closing the door all the way.

All morning he was distracted by the woman's voice. He really had wanted to talk to Lorelai about it, but she had enough to deal with.

He really tried to forget about it, but he couldn't help asking himself, 'Why is a woman answering Jess's phone?'

There is the first chapter! I know it is short and there is no Rory/Logan and barely any mentions of Jess, but I had a hard time figuring it out how to start this story. I figured that you can't go wrong with some Lorelai/Emily interaction (at least I hope not!). Truthfully, I really don't like this chapter. I mean, I love Lorelai, but I just don't really like the way it went. Please review! It would mean an awful lot to me...

Just so everyone knows, updates are not going to be as quick as the last story. Before, I had How It Was Supposed to Be completely finished, so all I had to do was edit and update. Also, when I update is going to depend on how much time I have and whether or not I have any ideas for the story. There will definitely be an update tomorrow morning (hopefully!), but after that, I won't have access to my computer for a week. Just as long as people are reading, I promise to keep updating as often as I can!

I'm also going to try another thing that I have seen other authors do. At the end of every chapter I'm going to ask a question that I would like you to answer in your review. (You don't have to, but I'd like it.) The questions will probably stay in the Gilmore Girls category, but you never know!

Question: What is your favorite Gilmore Girls scene?
