Two Months Time

Chapter 4: This is a study session! Not a make out session….

A/N: We've got some Trory action here! Hope you enjoy!

Tristan waited in his car for a moment while Rory was talking to her mom inside the inn. They were going to study at her house today, if he didn't die waiting in the car first.

The handle on the passenger side jiggled and he opened his eyes to see Rory peering in and pointing at the lock on the door through the window. He unlocked it and smiled when she got settled in. "Sorry. You took so long in there, I ended up dozing off."

"My mom wanted to make sure I knew that she didn't want to walk in the front door at five and see us making out even after I told her that that probably wouldn't happen seeing as we just started dating. And then Sookie wanted me to try a new dessert she just made and she wouldn't let me leave until I did. And after that Michelle decided that he didn't want to work here anymore because Lorelai wouldn't get out of his chair while she was drinking her coffee, so I had to make my mom move and then apologize so that he wouldn't actually quit." She took a deep breath, "Sorry it took so long."

He smirked and pulled out of the inns parking area. "That's alright. You did tell me that it might end up taking a while."

About ten minutes later they were pulling into her driveway. "So," he said. "You think we can get about half way done today?"

"I think we will be able to finish today. I would like to anyway." She pulled her bag out from the trunk and headed towards the front door. "I already got the poster board, and I printed off some pictures for it."

He sat down on the couch and watched as she paced around the house gathering supplies. "How About I glue the stuff on while you write everything?"

She came out of her bedroom and sat down on the floor, her knees under the coffee table. "Why?"

"My penmanship isn't really all that great and if you want the teacher to be able to read it I suggest you write it."

"That's perfectly understandable." She carefully wrote 'The Renaissance' in bubble letters on the top of the poster and then handed him the glue stick. "Get to it mister." She smiled. "Just leave room for me to write."

"No, Really?" he smirked. "I didn't know that."

"Well, now you do." she giggled and looked through his notes. "You were right, your writing sucks."

"But my notes don't."

"This is true."

"Never underestimate a DuGrey."

"I never did."


"Are you done yet? There were only four pictures."

"Almost." He smiled over at her and pressed the last picture to the board. "Done."

"Good." She turned the poster around to face her and then set the pen down. "You wanna go to Lukes and get something to eat?"

"I thought you wanted to finish this thing today."

"We will." She smiled and moved around the table to sit with her back to the couch next to his legs. "I'm just hungry, and we can make it to go if you really want to."

"If you want to. Sure." He stood up and dug his keys out of his pocket. "Lets go."

"It's only about 3 blocks from here. Lets just walk over there."

He nodded and shoved the keys back in his pocket. "Sure." He followed her out the door and as soon as they were at the bottom of the steps he took her hand in his and squeezed it. "I like this place."

"That's good."

"It's so much more welcoming than Hartford. You mom seems like a great person too."

"Yeah, she is. You'll get to know her more when she gets home at five." She pushed a stray hair back behind her ear before going on. "And if you really want to get on her good side bring coffee occasionally and go along with all the strange things she says. She is much more friendly when you do."

"Where is your dad in all this?"

"Well, my dad and my mom were rebels of a sort. My mom had me when she was sixteen and my grandparents wanted them to get married. And to make a long story short they didn't and my mom ran to stars hollow where we lived in a gardening shed behind the inn my mom used to manage."

"That must have been hard."

She shrugged. "Not really, we had fun and eventually we moved into this house."

He nodded and opened the door to the diner for her.

After leaning against the counter beside Rory he nodded at Luke as he took their order.

"I suppose you want this to go?" Luke asked.

Rory nodded and took a seat at the counter.

"We have a project for Word History and its due in three days." Tristan said. "And we want to get it done today so that we don't have to worry about it all anymore."

Rory nodded again and rested her hand on his knee, setting fire to his leg as she drew tiny circles with her thumb. He groaned inwardly and then silently thanked Luke for his quick service before pulling Rory out of the diner, bag of food in hand. "Lets go finish that poster." He said in a thick voice.

"Hey, are you okay Tris?"

He nodded, "Yeah, I'm fine." He kept from looking at her, afraid that she would notice the desire in his eyes, afraid that her lips would become too tempting and he wouldn't be able to hold back any longer. He wanted to take this slow and kissing her the way he wanted to would only make him lose control.

They arrived back at her home a few minutes later. Rory went into the kitchen to grab a soda for Tristan and another cup of coffee for herself. She had gotten one from Lukes and had finished it as they were walking in the door. He still didn't understand how she could drink that much coffee that quickly. He shrugged and pulled out the styrofoam container holding his burger and fries.

He looked up as Rory came back into the living room, sodas in hand, and sat down beside him. He couldn't help but notice that her leg was pushing into his as she got comfortable. He couldn't help but feel the tingling sensation she always managed to give him when they touched, it didn't matter if she didn't have anything but innocent intentions; it still made his stomach drop. He wondered if she could feel it too.

He watched as she pushed a fry between her perfect lips and chewed.

"We should get started again. But first we need some music." She stood up and went to her room before shouting, "The subways or Aqualung?"

"I've never heard of The Subways but Aqualung sounds good."

She brought them both out of her room and wandered over to the stereo where, a moment later Aqualung was playing. "I love this guys voice, it always manages to give me the goosebumps."

Tristan nodded silently as he bit into his burger. It was really good. "This is the best burger I've had in a long time."

"Luke is the best." She agreed and ate another fry before closing her eyes and singing along with the song in her sweet voice.

I've been

Watching your world from afar

I've been

'Oh, god' he thought to himself before groaning inwardly.

Trying to be where you are

I've been

Secretly falling apart

He slid closer to her on the couch, and she didn't seem to notice until he whispered her name into her ear. "Rory."


To me

You're strange and you're beautiful

You'd be

She opened her eyes and looked at him, her mouth slightly parted.

He traced his thumb over her bottom lip before slowly moving his hand to her neck, bringing her closer.

So perfect with me but you just

Can't see

You turn every head but you don't

See me

He watched as she closed her eyes and let out a sigh. It was enough to kill him.

You turn every head but you don't

See me

I'll put a spell on you

He brushed his lips over hers lightly, letting her know just what he planned to do to her.

You fall asleep

When I put a spell on you

He ran his tongue along her upper lip asking her to let him in, and when she did it was pure ecstasy. It was the only word he could think of as a loud groan echoed within his throat.

And when I wake you

I'll be the first thing you see

And you'll realize that you love me

He slid his hand down her back and pulled her closer still by the waist, he was glad she wasn't pulling away.


The last thing you want comes in first


The first thing you want never comes

He flipped her over so that he was on top of her and kissed her harder. He could almost feel her lips swell beneath his.

I know

Waiting is all you can do


I'll put a spell on you

He pressed his full weight into her, letting her know what exactly she was doing to him and she moaned, digging her long nails into his shoulders. The sting only made him want her more.

You'll fall asleep

I'll put a spell on you

He kissed her one last time before pulling away hesitantly. "I'm Sorry," he whispered. "I couldn't stop myself."

And when I wake you

I'll be the first thing you see

And you'll realize that you love me

"Don't apologize." She whispered and moved her hands through his hair. "I kind of wanted to do the same thing. I wanted to know what it would be like."

He closed his eyes in pleasure as she moved her hands down his shoulders and over his

Chest. She left a trail of goosebumps. Her hands were up and under his shirt in a matter of seconds and he couldn't breath as she ran her hands over his hard abs.

The only thing he could do was grip her hair harder as she moved her hands around to his back to trace his spine down to the top of his jeans.

He had to stop her soon. He didn't want to do this yet, even if she clearly wanted to. He wanted to wait for a better time. Like when they weren't in her house on her couch, with her mother coming home in less than an hour.

He somehow managed to choke out her name. "Rory." Her hands stopped their incessant torture.

"Hmm?" he could barley hear her.

"We need to stop."

She pulled her hands out from his shirt.

"We need to stop." He said again, trying to breath properly. "We need to finish this project. This isn't supposed to be a make out session."

She nodded. "Tris, you know that I'm okay with this right? Just as long as we don't take it too far I'm okay."

He looked at her swollen lips and groaned. "I know, but it just doesn't feel right. Doing this here. On your couch. And isn't your mom going to be here soon?"

She nodded. "Your right. She should be home. But not for another hour." She kissed his arm lightly.

He shook his head. "She could be home early."

"She won't be early." Rory said knowingly. "She will most likely end up being late. The inn was really busy when I was in there."

"Rory." He still couldn't breath right.

She wrapped her arms around his neck and pulled him closer. "Just one more kiss."

"If I kiss you again I won't be able to stop." He pressed himself into her so that she would know why and watched her eyes go wide. "This is what you do to me Rory."

"Maybe we should stop then." She whispered.

He nodded and moved up and off of her. "That's what I've been trying to tell you."

"Sorry." She said. "I'm not exactly an expert at this kind of thing."

"I know that." He said. "Listen, can you finish this if I lend you my notes?"

She nodded. "I think so."

"You won't need my help for anything else?"

"No." she shook her head.

"I should go." He stood up and dug his keys out of his pocket. "I'll pick you up in the morning."

She stood up beside him. "Are you mad at me?"

"No." he pulled her to him and kissed her forehead. "I just think that I should go before I take things to far with us."

She nodded and smiled. "I'll see you in the morning." She walked him outside to his car and kissed him lightly on the lips before he got in and pulled out of her driveway.

He was on his way home, where a very cold shower awaited him.

A/N: So! What do you think? I personally feel that this chapter was fun to write! I hope you enjoyed it!

I'm sorry for the long wait, I got caught up in school work and then summer came and with it Drivers ed so I haven't had much time to write, but I will be quicker to update now (hopefully) because I am actually still in drivers ed at the moment. (One more week!)

Also the song I used in this chapter is by this incredible singer named Aqualung. The song is called Strange and beautiful (I'll put a spell on you) and If you have never heard of this guy before I strongly advise that you look him up and listen to some of his music! His voice is incredible! (I JUST bought his CD not long ago.)

Anywho, I will shut up now so that you can go and review!

Love you all bunches!
