Title: Wake Up And Make A Move
A/N: I'm so sorry it's taken so long to update, I don't have many excuses except high school takes a lot more time and work than I thought it would!
"Rory..." She heard from under the covers, Rory groaned and buried her head under the pillow also.
Tristan chuckled and leaned against the headboard, watching the lump of blankets next to him.
"I have coffee," He goaded, a hand flew out from under the blanket and hit his chest blindly, working its way down his arm and finally to his hand, grabbing the mug and disappearing back underneath the blanket, all the while Tristan laughed.
"Are you coming out now?" he asked amused.
"Too bright!" she insisted. Tristan shook his head, but got up and closed the blinds of his bedroom window.
Tristan turned around and saw Rory peak her head up from under the blanket so just her head from her nose and up were showing, he fell more in love with her every day.
"Much!" She answered happily, sitting up and leaning against the pillows, sipping her coffee.
"Why are you being so lazy today?" He asked
"Today? Tristan, we've barely gotten out of bed in the past two days, this isn't lazy, this is what we've been doing all weekend."she teased.
"I didn't hear you complaining earlier, unless it was to go harder or faster," he responded smirking, he lowered his mouth to hers, joining her under the covers until he pulled away and groaned.
"I can't trust myself," he groaned, getting off the bed and away from her and Rory sighed. "Your parents get back today, Rory. You haven't spoken to Kevin since the party, you need to go home today," he reminded her.
"I know, I know...I just...don't want to," she groaned, pulling the pillow over her head. Tristan sighed again and pulled the pillow out of her grasp.
"Come on, up!" He ordered. Rory groaned again and fell out of the bed in her attempts to get untangled from the covers. She ended up on the floor in a heap and Tristan was doubled over laughing.
Rory glared at him before walking as indignantly into the bathroom as she could, naked. Tristan laid back on the bed with a smile on his face, then the realities of what they had to do next came crashing down and this smile quickly faded.
Tristan pulled into Rory's driveway and shut off this car and looked over at her. She was staring at the front door.
"My parents aren't home yet, their car isn't here," She stated, still staring at the front door.
"Hey," Tristan said softly, grabbing her hand and gaining her attention so she would look at him, "we don't have to go in there if you don't want to."
Rory smiled at him, "I have to go in there sooner or later. You don't have to come," She insisted, but Tristan shook his head.
"If you're going in, so am I," he promised. Rory smiled at him one last time before getting out of the car, Tristan got out also and he grabbed her hand and gave it a reassuring squeeze before they opened the door.
They walked through the entrance room and started up the stairs towards her room, Finn came down in the opposite direction and stopped when he saw the two of them.
"You're back...," he trailed off, looking at the same outfit Rory had been wearing when she left. "Hell no am I leaving now, it just got real interesting. I'm gonna go make popcorn," he said to himself more than to them and continued down the stairs.
The couple continued upstairs and safely into her room where she changed her clothes. They left her room and headed back downstairs, where they met Kevin with his bruised face as a reminder of just what had happened two days ago.
"I was wondering when you two were going to resurface. Mom and Dad should be home any second, Rory." Kevin told her, never looking once at Tristan and going to turn away.
"So this is how it's gonna be?" Tristan asked him.
"Yeah, this is how it's gonna be," Kevin responded. The trio ignored the Australian who ran in with a bowl of popcorn and sat on the stairs, watching the scene closely.
"Why can't you just accept this!" Tristan yelled, frustrated.
"I'm sorry I can't just forgive my best friend and my sister for betraying me!" Kevin responded just as loudly, sarcastically.
"Kevin, we didn't betray you!" Rory responded.
"What is your problem!" Tristan yelled.
"My problem is that you're fucking my sister!" Kevin yelled back.
At that moment, the three teens turned suddenly when they realized they weren't alone in this room. Lorelai and Christopher had just walked through the front door and were staring at the four teenagers in shock and curiosity.
"Welcome home Lorelai and Chris!" Finn called cheerfully from his place on the steps, breaking the silence.
"DuGrey..." Christopher growled, starting towards him.
"Christopher wait!" Lorelai interrupted him, and put a reassuring arm around his while Tristan backed up unconsciously away from Christopher.
Kevin groaned and stormed up the stairs while Christopher made a beeline for the bar in the other room. Leaving Lorelai staring at Tristan and Rory.
"We leave for a weekend and we miss all this!" She exclaimed.
Hours and much explaining later, the house and finally settled down. Lorelai and Christopher and both eaten and retired for the night, jet lag making them both exhausted.
Rory was restless, she hated fighting with Kevin. He was one of her best friends and when he was mad at her she felt like she could never be truly happy because he wasn't happy also.
She was just exiting her bedroom for a glass of water when she saw Kevin coming out of the bathroom.
"Kevin, look..." Rory started, but Kevin just shook his head and walked down the hallway towards his room.
"Kevin, please!" Rory pleaded, unshed tears rimming her eyes.
"He's my best friend, Rory. And you're my sister. I can't forgive him...I just can't. I forgive you, but not him," he said sadly before closing his bedroom door.
Rory brushed away her tears and let out a deep sigh. This was over, it was time for her to stop moping and figure out something to fix all of this.
Of course, she wouldn't be able to do this alone...
"Come on, Finn!" Rory pleaded at the Australian the next day in the library. Finn and groaned started to bang his head the table they were sitting at, gaining stares from students and disapproving noises from the librarian.
"Love, you dragged me to school and took away my alcohol and demanded that I think of a brilliant idea to get Kevin and Tristan to speak each other! I need alcohol to think of good ideas!"
Rory sighed and handed him the flask under the table, the flask she had been carrying for just this situation. Finn, taking no regard of the fact that a room full of people were probably watching, took a long swig from the flask and let out a self-satisfying sigh.
"Happy now?" Rory asked sarcastically. Finn didn't bother to answer that question, but winked at her. He leaned back in his chair and closed his eyes.
"Great, I ask you for help and you fall asleep! I knew I should've went to Logan, but we was going into the janitors closet with some blonde girl," Rory ranted.
"The closet!" Finn jumped up excitedly.
"What?" Rory asked, confused.
"Doesn't matter, just bring Tristan to your house straight after school, I'll take car of the rest!" He promised before running out of the library.
"A closet?" Rory wondered aloud.
The rest of the day went quickly, but not quick enough for Rory. She was anxious to see if Finn's plan would work and to see exactly what this brilliant plan was.
"Rory, why can't we just go to my house instead? I don't want to deal with Kevin today." Tristan pleaded, stubbornly standing firmly outside the front door, not moving.
"Come on, Tristan. I just want to hang out in my room, I promise to make it worth your while," she hinted. Tristan raised his eyebrows and followed her into the house. They were greeted by Logan, Finn, and Colin waiting expectantly.
"Hello," Finn said slowly. Before Tristan had anytime to react, Logan and Colin grabbed him and carried him into the kitchen, Finn followed them and opened the closet door while Logan and Colin tossed him in there.
Before they slammed the door shut she saw Kevin also in the closet.
"Guys, God dammit let us out!" Kevin's voice boomed through the door.
"We're not letting you guys out until you kill each other or forgive each other, which ever comes first, really," Logan explained.
"This is your brilliant idea?" Rory asked Finn, exasperated, who sheepishly smiled at her.
"Rory, come on, let me out," Tristan pleaded. Rory hesitated, biting her lip while debating whether or not to open the door. "Rory?" He asked again, when she didn't answer him.
"You guys...you'll have to stay in there until you figure all this out," She told him, shakily while earning approving looks from the guys on the same side of the door as her.
Tristan stepped back from the door, shocked. Kevin snorted from behind him.
"Sucks when she betrays you, isn't it?" Kevin asked. Tristan's eyes flashed angrily as he turned around quickly and punched Kevin as hard as he could.
"Fuck!" Kevin yelled, grabbing his chin. "You piece of shit!" Kevin lunged toward Tristan.
"They're fighting!" Rory announced loudly, standing by the closet door. Logan, Finn, and Colin looked at her, amused from their spots at the kitchen table where they were already starting a game of poker to pass the time.
"Your point?" Colin asked.
"My point is that you have to stop them!" Rory yelled.
"Rory, did you think they were going to figure this out calmly and civilized? Of course they're fighting!" Logan explained. Rory sighed and looked uneasily at the door.
Three hours later...
"Let us out!" Tristan yelled, banging his head against the shelve behind him in frustration.
"If they haven't listened to us for the past," Kevin glanced down at his watch, "three hours and seven minutes, I don't think they will now."
"Don't talk to me, this is all your fault," Tristan said angrily.
"All my fault!" Kevin asked in disbelief.
"Why can't you just be happy for us?"
"Because you're sleeping with sister!"
Outside the closet Logan, Colin, and Finn looked up from their game, that being the first thing they'd heard in a couple hours as Rory looked up from her book, worried.
"She's my girlfriend!"
"Yeah, but she was my sister first!" Kevin argued childly. Tristan sighed and rested his head back on the shelve, closing his eyes in defeat.
"Look, right now I could care less what you think of me because honestly, I think you're an asshole. Just...think of what you're doing to Rory. I love her, whether or not you choose to believe that, I do. And you're hurting her," he finished softly. Finally saying something that effected Kevin, he looked away guiltily.
"I don't like the two of you together."
"She's my sister," Kevin repeated.
"This again," Tristan sighed.
"No you don't get it. She's my twin, it's supposed to be the two of us against the world. No matter what she's supposed to be my best friend. Then you came into the picture and it's not just the two of us anymore. I guess it wouldn't be as horrible if she hadn't left, but she did and I missed those years she was gone. I lost her and as soon as I got her back, you came in. I'm jealous okay? Not in a gross way, just of the closeness that the two of you have. She has things she'll never tell me now, before she left she would tell me everything and anything. It's changed and it happened too suddenly," Kevin explained slowly.
A/N: Oh my gosh! I totally loved that last paragraph. Jesus, I can't believe Gilmore Girls might be ending in less than a month. It's so depressing.
I can't even begin to think about it.
