Reviewers: Thank you so much for reviewing! It means so much to me, it truly does.
Authors Note: Hey all! I'm writing this chapter or at least starting it at school. My first class was cancelled so I thought I'd make use of the free time and write. Actually I've written this chapter twice already, not fully but I didn't like it so I erase it and started over. And yet again I restarted. Just thought I'd tell you all that this is incredibly hard to write this chapter. Not this time since I know exactly what I want but because the keyboard is really high up and I mean high, my forearms aren't even resting on my lap or anything. Lol this is really uncomfortable. And there's this weird thing on the bottom of the screen lol someone suck a sticker there and the librarian must have peeled it off cause it left a mark and a bunch of little bits of it lol. I'd move but there's no other computer free, for some reason everyone seems to want to be on the computers today in here. Anyway onto the chapter!
Dedicated: This chapter is dedicated to the people of big brother (the TV show) Big brother all stars is going to rock! If you don't watch Big Brother, you should start this season cause there is going to be lots and lots of drama!
Disclaimer: I do not own Gilmore Girls nor do I own anything related to it. Anything written here is just from my imagination no money will ever come for this.
"I think there are at least two of us in each of her classes, so that shouldn't be a problem." Logan said, as he contemplated the plan. "In the halls or going anywhere two can walk in front of her two beside her and one behind her. They wouldn't dare to try taking her in a crowded hallway. Too many witnesses, but better to be safe than sorry! All of us are together most of the day anyway so it's not a big change." Logan paused and glanced at Tristan "At night she can sleep in one of our rooms, we all room with one another anyway so it's not that big of a deal."
"Except" Finn said knowingly. "It would be extremely awkward with her in your dorm room, with you two." He looked pointedly from Logan to Tristan before continuing. "Besides I have my own room anyway. I also have an extra bed. It'll be easier if she just stays with me."
"But there's only one of you!" Tristan said worriedly. "There could be more of them and they could get to her at night!"
"So we'll rotate, someone will sleep in Finns room with them." Logan replied rolling his eyes at Tristan's stupidity. "So does everyone understand? We don't let anyone get near her. To get to her they have to go through us!"
"Yeah!" they all said together.
"Hold on!" Finn said looking at the door "Who's going to tell our dear Lorelai Leigh the plan?" the boys fell silent, glancing around nervously, to see who the unlucky person would be to break the news to her.
"I'll do it!" Tristan said suddenly standing up as the others breathed a sigh of relief. Tristan confidently opened the door and stepped inside, closing the door behind him.
"What a brave soul!" Finn replied. "Was he here the whole time? Better yet who the hell is he?"
Tristan closed the door quietly behind him, glancing over at the sleeping girl. She lay exactly where Logan had placed her, not too long ago. Smiling slightly, Tristan tip toed over to her, not wanting to wake her up just yet. Tristan leaned over the bed and gently pushed a piece of hair off of her face so he could see her more clearly. 'She's so beautiful!' he thought as he stared at her sleeping face. 'I can't believe I found you.' He continued to stare at her for several minutes, thinking of all the previous events that brought her back into his life. Thoughts of the plan quickly brought him out of his reverie. Knowing he couldn't put it off any longer, he touched her shoulder and shook her gently. "Rory." he whispered. "It's time to get up." Rory groaned and opened her eyes. She blinked a few times, when blue suddenly met blue.
"Hey," Rory whispered, still looking deep into his eyes. "What are you doing here?"
"This is my dorm room." Tristan pointed out, with a small smile.
"Oh right!" She replied sitting up in bed. "Sorry, I haven't had coffee today. My mind's not quite working right." She said trying to hide her embarrassment.
"That's understandable." Tristan said sitting on the bed. "If you want I could go and get you some coffee from the dining hall?"
"No!" Rory replied quickly looking at him. The fear was evident in her eyes. "I don't want to be alone." She replied quickly, embarrassed from her outburst.
Tristan reached out and pulled Rory to his chest. "I won't leave you!" he whispered fiercely, as he hugged her tight. "I promise." He said, placing a gentle kiss on top of her head. Rory nodded into his chest, wrapping her arms around him. The simple gesture assured her, and she was able to relax in his embrace.
After a few minutes she pulled away. "Where's Logan?" She asked, finally noticing they were alone. "He must have carried me in here after I fell asleep. Where did he go?"
"He's probably still outside." Tristan replied, unable to hide a look of defeat thinking Rory wanted him. "I can go and get him if you want!" He said quickly, trying to hide his discomfort.
"That's alright." Rory replied gently, sensing Tristan's uneasiness. "I only asked because Logan normally doesn't leave if I'm upset. It's really unusual for him."
"Oh!" Tristan said in understanding. "I get it."
Rory smiled. "I thought you would." she replied.
Tristan smiled back. Again recalling why he woke her up, the smile quickly slid off his face. "Rory" he said slowly. "We have to talk."
"About what?" She asked apprehensively.
"You know what about." He replied reaching over and grabbing one of her hands. He began to trace small circles on her palms, as he continued. "We need to talk about what we're going to do keep you safe." He said, waiting for her reaction.
"We're not going to do anything!" Rory replied calmly. "I can handle it myself."
"Rory!" Tristan said, raising his voice. "I'm sorry to be so harsh but get real! You and I both know that anything could happen! You just don't want to admit you need help." He said, giving her a pointed look.
"I don't need to be protected!" Rory yelled standing up, jerking her hand away from Tristan's grasp. "I can handle this on my own!"
"You can't and you know it! I know it! Hell! Even Finn knows it!" He yelled back, as he stood to face her.
"So…what…You and Logan decided to talk to them behind my back?" She huffed, folding her arms across her chest.
"You would have told them anyway." Tristan replied, lowering his voice once again. "Listen. I'm sorry we told them but I think we came up with something that even you'll agree to." He pleaded.
"Oh?" Rory whispered. "And what's that?"
She listened patiently, as Tristan briefly filled her in on what they had discussed in the hall.
"No." She said once he was finished. "Absolutely not!"
"What does it really matter?" Tristan asked, frustrated with her stubbornness. "You're with them all the time anyway! Now the only difference is you never walk anywhere alone and you sleep in Finn's room! Which I understand you already do a lot, for some movie night thing that I heard about in class yesterday!" He rambled, not wanting to give her time to object.
"But it's not all the time!" She replied lamely.
"So!" Tristan replied. "Just do it!" he looked at her pleadingly. "Do it for me." he added in a soft voice. Rory opened her mouth to speak but Tristan cut her off. "Look… if you won't do it for me, then do it for Logan and if you won't do it for him, then do it for your mother. I'm sure she'd rather you let us protect you than let him hurt you!"
Rory froze knowing it was the truth. "Fine!" she replied finally. "I'll let you guys help, but don't expect me to like it!" She pouted.
Tristan smirked. "Wouldn't expect any less, Mary." he said. "Now let's go get you some coffee."
"Let's!" Rory agreed grabbing Tristan's hand and pulling him to the door. She pulled the door open, and there stood, Colin, Finn, Robert and Logan. Rory couldn't help but grin at the sight. The four boys looked at her shocked. They half expected her to bolt or yell at them. Her reaction however, was not what they expected. She was smiling.
"Hey, Rory." Colin said cautiously after they all stood staring at each other like idiots. "Are you okay?"
"I'm fine" Rory replied stepping into the hall, as she noticed what each of the boys held in their hands. Smiling slightly she grabbed the full cup from Logan and gulped it down quickly. The boys sipped their coffee and watched in amusement, clearly used to it.
Tristan watched Rory gulp down the coffee Logan had brought her. 'How the hell does she do that?' he thought in awe. 'I've never seen anyone down coffee like it was water before!'
The group remained silent until Rory finished her cup and grabbed the other cup of coffee that Logan was drinking.
"Hey!" Logan said amused as she stole it from him and started to drink it. "I was drinking that."
Ignoring him, she finished her second cup in record time. "Let's go eat lunch!" she said once she finished the second cup.
"Alright!" the boys agreed as they started towards the dining room. No one brought up "The Plan" knowing that Rory didn't want to discuss what was going to happen until after she ate.
Five minutes later the group sat at their table.
"So" Robert said as he opened his can of Sprite. "We need to work out a schedule or something."
"Later" Rory replied before taking a big bite of her pepperoni pizza. Logan nodded in agreement. He knew that Rory hadn't eaten in almost 24 hours and wanted her to have some food in her belly before they discussed all of the details and came up with schedules. The rest of the group also agreed. For now, mindless chatter filled the table.
Twenty minutes later after Rory had finished her pizza, cheese burger and fries with gravy, the group stood and made their way to Rory's dorm room in silence. They all had a lot on their minds. Each one lost in thought. They had a lot to talk about and a lot to plan. They all however, had the knowledge that from now on, through thick and thin, they were in this thing together.
Wow! Wrote that whole thing at school in one day. I'm proud of myself. Lol Only did 'real' work in one period. Anyway I don't particularly like this chapter I usually don't but I thought I wrote Rory way to immature. But that's the way I had to write her. It probably is going to bug some of you guys to but that's the only way I could get her across. Besides how would you act in that situation if you we her? I really hate the ending of this chapter, wasn't entirely sure how to write it. Well that's it for now! Next update will be up very soon!
Warnings for the next chapter: Jumps ahead a few days and Rory gets another note!
