Summary: What if Rory had a twin sister? And what if Jess did not fall for Rory but her twin sister? Starts at Season 2 when Jess comes in and jumps around a little after that.

Chapter 1- Who's the New Guy?

Lorelai Kathryn Gilmore- or Kate Gilmore- sighed as she walked out of her bedroom and into the kitchen of the house she shared with her mother and her sister. Rory Gilmore looked at her sister and Kate smiled at her.

"What's up?" Rory asked her twin sister.

"Nothing as usual, hey have you seen my song book?" Kate asked.

"Here it is," Lorelai Gilmore, their mother said.

Kate smiled and took the offered book. "Thank you, Mom. You didn't read any of it right?" she asked.

"Never," Lorelai said.

"Right, so that is code for "I got to the first page only."" Rory pointed out.

"I swear on this coffee pot I didn't read any of your songs," Lorelai said.

"Oh, the coffee pot, that's big," Rory said.

"So big, I have to believe her," Kate said, putting the book away. "Come on, I'll drive to school," she said to Rory.

"Remember, Luke's after school," Lorelai said.

"Right," the girls replied, leaving the house.

Later, Kate was getting out of her car and saw her mom talking to Luke Danes in front of his diner. She tried to sneak away when she bumped into someone.

"Watch it," the guy said.

"You watch it," Kate snapped standing up.

The guy stood up and Kate looked at him. The boy was skinny and yet very lean. He was tall with dark brown hair and brown eyes. Kate's deep blue eyes narrowed at him.

"Who are you?" she asked.

"Jess Mariano," the boy said.

"Well, next time, watch where you are going," Kate said.

"That goes for you too," Jess said.

Kate flipped her hair over her shoulder and walked away from him. Jess watched her go and shook his head.

"Well, she looks like a lot of fun," he said.

"Pompous jerk, that's what he was!" Kate exclaimed, coming into the house.

"Who was a pompous jerk?" Rory asked.

"Some guy I ran into at the diner," Kate said.

"Gonna write about it?" Rory asked.

"Don't I always?" Kate replied.

"Yes and stop answering questions with questions," Rory said.

Kate smirked and went upstairs to her room. "Whatever keeps you going," she said.

Later, she was setting the table for dinner and Lorelai came into the kitchen.

"Kate, two more places," she said.

"Why? Who's coming over?" Kate asked.

"Luke and his nephew," Lorelai said.

Kate nodded and set two more places. There was a knock on the back door and she answered it. She gasped at the sight of the guy from that afternoon.

"Hey, Kate," Luke said going inside.

"Hi, Luke," Kate said.

"Nice name," Jess said. "Easy to remember," he added.

"Pity since I don't recall yours," Kate said.

"Well you two seem to be having a ton of fun," Lorelai said.

"Oh I am," Jess said. Then he leaned in closer towards Kate. "My name is Jess," he added going inside.

Kate glared at him and went into the living room. Rory looked at her.

"That's him," Kate gritted out.

"He is not bad," Rory said.

"Shut-up," Kate replied, grabbing her song book and her pen.

Jess came up behind her and Rory looked at him. He put a finger to his lips and she nodded. Kate didn't notice him. Jess smirked and put his chin on top of her head.

"Whatcha writing?" he asked.

Kate jumped and her pen made a mark on the whole page. Rory laughed and Jess smirked.

"Well, I was planning on skipping out early, but now I'll stay," he said. "Isn't that great?" he asked.

"Just great," Kate muttered.

Later, Jess was in Rory's room, when Kate came back into the room.

"Time for dinner," she said, leaning against the doorframe.

Jess nodded and then went over to the window.

"This opens right," Jess asked.

"Yeah," Kate replied.

"Shall we?" Jess asked.

"What are you talking about," Kate asked.

"Bail," Jess replied.

"On the dinner my mother planned and your uncle is so happy to be at? You're seriously crazy," Kate said.

"I'll take that as a no," Jess said.

"Damn straight," Kate said. "Now come on, you should eat before you terrorize the town," she muttered.

Jess smirked and followed her. "This is should be interesting," he whispered.
