Disclaimer: I do not own Gilmore Girls.
AU Rory told Lorelai that Jess was the one who helped her decide to go back to Yale and move out of her Grandparents house so he and Lorelai have a better relationship And there wasn't much civilized conversation between the two so sorry if they seem out of character.
Luke and Jess sat in the living room. Jess sat writing in the margins of the many books he had borrowed from Rory. Luke was applying glue to one of the legs of the over turned coffee table.
"Mom I am not backing over you with the car!" Rory said as she and her mother entered their house. Which distracted both men from their previous activities. By the exasperation in Rory's voice it seemed as if Lorelai had been asking numerous times.
Luke and Jess stood and went to the foyer to greet their respective women.
"Please?." Lorelai said as she and Rory simultaneously took off their jackets and scarves.
"No." Rory stated as she shook off her coat
"Ple-" Lorelai started to beg again but halted when she noticed Luke and Jess standing in front of her. "Hi." she greeted Jess, which he responded with a nod and a miniature smile. She then gave Luke a kiss on the lips. She pulled away inhaled deeply looked into his eyes for a moment then turned back to Rory "Please?"
Rory shook her head as she maneuvered in between the two to get to Jess, whose neck she wrapped her arms around and kissed. As they moved into the living with Lorelai and Luke behind them.
Lorelai sighed deeply and dramatically
"What's goin' on?" Luke asked confused looking back and forth between his wife and his step daughter.
"I'm dying." Lorelai said morosely as she let herself fall onto the couch
"What?" Luke directed the question at Rory who was half way sitting on Jess' lap and the arm of the chair looking amused
"Grandma's making us go to a ballet." Rory said with a chuckle in her voice
"Ah." Jess nodded
"Yes it's tragic Luke can you please hand me a pen, I'm writing my will."
"You're being ridiculous." Luke said But still handed her the pen and paper.
"You're right." She tossed the paper and pen to Rory and Jess "You two are the writers, compose my memoirs." She dictated then threw her head down on the arm of the couch spectacularly.
"I am not writing your memoir." Rory used the pen to point at her mother.
Jess slipped the pen out her hand and started writing on the paper he had been handed. "Done." He declared with a satisfied smile as he put the paper on the table
Rory picked it up and read it "Coffee, Luke, Luke's Rory Coffee and…." Rory laughed …"coffee."
Lorelai playfully scowled while Rory and Luke laughed
"Sounds about right." Luke said as he looked down at his still scowling wife.
"Your coffee's the best though." She said before kissing Luke and snuggling up next to him.
"So how was New Mexico?" Rory interjected
"Hot. But I did score this from one of the book stores." Jess shifted around so he could reach into his back pocket and pull out his paperback book.
"We the Living! I've been wanting to get this in paperback. Thank you." she beamed
"Well you know there's another way you could thank me." He eyed her sensually and kissed her.
" 'And what is the state but a servant and a convenience for a large number of people, just like the electric light and the plumbing system? And wouldn't it be preposterous to claim that men must exist for their plumbing, not the plumbing for the men?'" Lorelai quoted
"You're into Ayn Rand?" Jess said in curiosity
"More like I was bored while Rory was browsing and Kirk and Lulu were making out behind the counter so I flipped through a book and that quote got stuck in my head." Lorelai explained
"There goes that cat." he plainly said
Lorelai chuckled then noticed Rory staring at her smiling. 'What?"
"Nothing." Rory said in a singsong voice
"So anything happen in New Mexico?" Lorelai asked
"Well we tried looking for East High and a couple of singing football players but apparently they shot that in Utah." Jess said in his usual sarcastic way
"Basketball. They were basketball players." Rory clarified
"Rory likes High School Musical!" Lorelai teased
"The songs are catchy!" Rory defended herself Lorelai stared at her and cleared her throat
"And…Zac Efron's not horrible to look at." Rory blushed
"Huh." Jess said finding the conversation interesting, and a little irritating
"It's the smile."
"Huh." Jess said a little more seductively and raised his eyes brows and once again Rory blushed
" Which reminds me, you didn't hook up with any hot chicks did you? She playfully elbowed Luke
"None in New Mexico." He eyed her
"Why Lucas whatever does that mean?" Lorelai played coyly
"It means the woman I want is in Stars Hollow." Luke nearly whispered as he kissed her passionately
"You know I didn't like the first 'From Here To Eternity' I don't need to see the sequel." Jess said with unconcealed disgust
Lorelai and Luke broke from their kiss
"Fine but that means no 'Ice Castles' on the chair either." Lorelai countered
Jess raised his hands then placed them on the arm of the chair instead of on Rory's leg.
" I hate that movie." Luke affirmed
"How can you hate a classic like 'Ice Castles' ?" Lorelai said bewildered
"It's too long." Luke shook his head
"It's an hour and a half!" smiled at her husbands definition of the word 'long'
"Actually it's an hour and 48 minutes." Jess Clarified Lorelai quirked an eyebrow at him. "Rory wanted to watch it." He pointed at Rory who smiled proudly
" Well It seems longer." Luke added Lorelai rolled her eyes
"Speaking of long…" Lorelai started as Rory palmed her face in her hand cause she knew where she was going "You think we can get away with bringing a flask with us on Friday? We can play the Plié drinking game."
"I don't think so. We'd be drunk within the first two minutes."
"Ugh! This is going to be so boring!" Lorelai groaned and buried her face in Luke's chest. " Unless….."
Rory gave her mother a knowing look, while Luke gave Jess a confused one.
"Unless…" Rory picked up "…You come with us." Rory smiled
"Ah Jeez!" Jess and Luke said at the same time
"Please Luke?" Lorelai pouted her lips
"Fine I'll go." Luke said grudgingly
"Thank you." Lorelai pecked him on the lips and watched Rory work her magic on Jess
"I can't I'm goin' outta town." Jess avoided her eyes
"Where?" Rory challenged
"We are the world."
"Rory come on."
"I'm not wild about ballets and your grandparents aren't too wild about me."
"Well they hate Luke too but he's going." Rory gestured to Luke. Luke sighed and looked miserable.
"Well gee when you make it sound that swell…" Jess said sardonically
"Jess please…..so they don't like you, but I do, and I'll owe you, big."
"How big?" Jess asked looking into Rory's eyes. The tempting smile on Rory's face answers his question. "Fine." He exhaled "I'll go." Rory squealed and high five'd her mother. "But you better bring a cooler." he advised
And that's chapter 2 First off I want to say thank you for the comments and the subscriptions and messages. And please leave more J
Also here's some info:
When Rory said she liked Zac's smile and Jess was ok with that is because Zac Efron has a bit of a crooked smile, and as we all know so does Milo. (Which I really like by the way)
And when Jess said "There goes that Cat." it's a little bit of a play of the expression curiosity killed the cat.
Also if you don't the 'singing basketball players' thing it's a reference to High School Musical and if you've ever seen the first one you'd know that the movie is set in Albuquerque New Mexico but they actually shot them in Salt Lake City Utah.
So yeah that's all at the moment more will be up soon if requested. Any feedback or question shoot me a message or leave a review.
