The Diner is CLOSED- Chapter 4

Disclaimer: It's not mine. None of it.

Author's Note: I didn't think I was going to continue this but I did, so here's the next chapter. Review, tell me what you think. I can't read minds. I'm not Miss Cleo, but then again, she can't read minds either.

"Guess what?" Lorelai asked excitedly as she walked into the living room.

"What?" Rory asked indifferently from behind a book.

"Way to be enthusiastic. I come in here all happy and thrilled with amazing news and you're all bored and blah." Lorelai pouted.

"I'm sorry." Rory apologized mockingly, "What?!" she asked faking enthusiasm.

"Fine then," Lorelai glared at Rory, "I won't tell you about the nightclub that Luke was singing at or anything else that happened tonight."

"What?! Tell me! What's the news? What did Luke sing? Wait, Luke sings?" Rory rambled curiously.

"Yeah, Luke sings amazingly." she smiled, "He even wrote one song. It was amazing."

"Wow, is that the news?"

"Nope."

"So?" Rory asked questioningly

Lorelai grinned, "I kissed Luke."

"That's great! So you guys are together now?"

"Yeah."

"That's amazing! Luke's loved you forever." Rory hugged her mom happily.

"Nu uh."

"Ya huh." Rory nodded.

"Whatever," Lorelai smiled, "I'm tired, and I'm going to go to bed. Goodnight."

"Goodnight."

Luke walked into the diner happily and went up the stairs to the apartment. "Hey Jess." he said as he passed him in the new living room reading a book while lying on the couch.

"You're unusually pleasant, what's up?" Jess asked suspiciously.

"Nothing."

"Did you get some or somethin'?"

"You know what Jess, not even you could piss me off right now."

"Did you finally hook up with Lorelai?"

Luke ignored him and went into his room.

"You did! How?" Jess asked as he got up and went into Luke's room.

"Goodnight Jess."

"Fine. How was the crowd tonight?"

"Good I suppose."

"Okay. Congrats. Night."

"Thanks. Night." Luke nodded as Jess went to his room and Luke lied back on his bed and shortly drifted off to sleep.

"Coffee." Lorelai smiled as she sat at the counter in front of Luke.

"That stuff will kill you." Luke warned.

"I'll die happy." Lorelai argued.

"Then what would I do?"

"Bury me with coffee." she smiled.

"Not funny." Luke shook his head.

"Then I guess you'll just have to give me coffee." she shrugged.

"How do you figure?"

"I am the supreme authority in life so you have to do what I say."

"Wrong answer."

"Hm, I thought I was." she pouted.

"Nope." he smiled.

Lorelai sighed, "Coffee."

"Nope."

"I think you should give me coffee."

"Why?" he asked as he raised an eyebrow.

"Because you love me so much and you know how irritable I can get without coffee." she said knowingly.

Luke sighed, "Fine." he said as he gave her a mug and poured her coffee.

She took a sip and glared at him, "You're evil and mean and heartless."

"Me?" Luke asked innocently.

"Get the REAL coffee out."

"Demanding, aren't you?"

"Yep. Get movin' coffee man."

"Alright, alright." Luke pulled a cup from under the counter and gave it to her.

Lorelai took a cautious sip, "Mm, I love you."

"You only love me for my coffee." he joked.

"Damn straight." she smiled.

"Hey mom, hey Luke." Rory greeted as she entered the diner and sat next to her mother at the counter.

"Hey hun."

"Hey Rory."

"Coffee please?"

"Luke, you better not pull anything funny." Lorelai glared at him.

Luke rolled his eyes, "Fine." he agreed and pulled another cup from under the counter.

"How many of those do you have?" Lorelai asked curiously.

"I'm not telling."

"Don't make me go back there."

"Twelve."

Lorelai grinned, "That might last until lunch."

"No it won't. Today's Saturday, I'll have a 'good' pot on after Kirk finishes the decaf."

"You know us too well." Lorelai shook her head.

"You two are goofy." Rory smiled as she finished her coffee, "I'm going to go hang out with Dean. Later."

"I'm not goofy." Luke argued.

Rory looked at her mom, and back at Luke, "Whatever you say." she smirked and left the diner.

"What was that about? I'm not goofy!" Luke asked.

"No, but I am, therefore making you goofy." Lorelai smiled.

Luke shook his head, "You two never make any sense at all."

Lorelai smiled, "How 'bout you make that twelve under there eleven?"

Luke rolled his eyes and pulled out another cup, "Fine."

Lorelai grinned, "So Luke, Where did you learn to sing like that?"

"I've been with the band since high school. Whenever I needed to deal with something, music was the way I did it." he shrugged.

"How many songs have you written?"

"Actually, that was the first one I ever wrote."

"Wow, Luke, it was really good."

"No it wasn't."

"Yes it was, it was amazing!"

"You're only saying that because it was about you."

"Nu-uh. It was really good. Did you see how the crowd cheered for you after it?"

"It was an okay song I suppose."

"Repeat after me, It"

Luke shook his head, "It."

"Was."

"Was."

"Great."

"Great." Luke rolled his eyes.

"There you go. Now you have the right idea." Lorelai smiled.
