I don't own Gilmore girls
The day of Rory and Jess's birthday was fast approaching. Lorelai was emotional thinking of her baby girl turning one. Luke and Lorelai were both shocked when they realized that Jess and Rory shared a birthday. A week before Rory and Jess's shared birthday Lorelai ran into the Diner Rory bouncing happily on her hip.
"Luke." She shouted out excitement ringing through her voice.
"What?" Luke came out of the kitchen a dish rag in one hand and Jess in the other. The before mentioned Jess was covered in flour.
Lorelai burst out laughing. "What happened."
"Jess decided that it was a good idea to try and pull the flour bin down on top of him." Luke looked disgruntled at his son as he wiped more flour off the squirming child.
"Here give him to me." Lorelai sat Rory down on the floor and took Jess from Luke. She took the wash cloth from his other hand and proceded to wipe the young boy free of the white goop that covered him. Once he was clean she sat him down on the floor next to Rory and took a seat at one of the stools.
"So what did you need." Luke asked leaning against the counter a pad of paper and pen in his hand.
"Well I'll have pancakes and coffee but that's not what I wanted to talk to you about. I was wondering if we could hold Rory and Jess's birthday here." She put on her patented Gilmore pout. Luke internally groaned he couldn't say no to that pout.
"Ok I'll even make the cake."
"Yay." Lorelai jumped off the stool clapping her hands causing the diner patrons to look at her with indulgent smiles. She bent down and looked at the babies on the floor. "Did you here that you guys get to have your party. Just the smile Lorelai gave him made it worth it for Luke.
The day of the party dawned and Lorelai hurried around her little house getting Rory ready in a dress she had pieced together. She carried her into the inn beaming the whole time. "There's the birthday girl." Mia beamed when she saw them walk in the door.
"your going to be at Luke's later right." Lorelai asked the women she saw as a grandmother.
"Wouldn't miss it for the world." Mia assured her.
"Ok well I'm going to go help Luke set up I'll see you later." Lorelai left walking across town to Luke's she pushed the door open and her mouth dropped she stared in aw at the diner. It was decorated in pink and blue streamers and there was a banner that read Happy Birthday Jess and Rory Lorelai felt tears gather in the corner of her eyes. Luke came down the stairs a dressed Jess in his arms. "Oh Luke." Lorelai breathed.
"It was nothing" He shrugged.
"Ess Ess." Rory squirmed in Lorelai's arms. Lorelai chuckled and her and Luke set the kids down in the playpen that Luke had set up in one corner of the diner. Soon the towns people came in laden down with gifts and well wishes for there youngest town members. When everyone family and friend was there the presents were given out with Rory in Lorelai's lap and Jess in Luke's the two adults helped the kids open there mounds of presents consisting anywhere from clothes to plush toys. Lorelai smiled gratefully at the towns people that she had came to see as family they knew she couldn't afford to give her daughter a big party but they made sure she had a good one.
"Ok cake time." Luke stood up after all the presents were opened sitting Jess in Lorelai's lap with Rory and heading to the kitchen. He came back a few minuets latter two tiny cakes in each hand He sat one down in front of each kid and watched as Rory and Jess smashed there fingers into the cake. Everyone laughed at the picture they made as people pulled out camara's to snap the precious moment. Luke then brought out the big cake for everyone else. People sat back and ate there cake reminiscing and laughing. They all hoped they could be around to watch both of the children grow up.
After everyone left Luke and Lorelai cleaned up the diner and the children. Dusk was setting in before Lorelai gathered a groggy Rory to her. She turned to Luke. "Luke I don't know how I can ever repay you for making this day so great." Happiness glowed in her cheeks.
"Don't worry about it." Luke waved her off. She shot him a quick smile and a wave as she walked out the door Rory carefully buddle up against the wind. Luke looking after her. A slight smile playing on his lips. He gathered Jess to him smoothing back the young boys hair. "Well Jess I hope you had a good party." He carried his young son up to there apartment settling him down on the bed and watched as he lolled off to sleep thanking god for this town for his son and for the friends that surrounded him across town in a little potting shed turned apartment Lorelai Gilmore was doing the same thing.
