No Matter What

Chapter 4: SURPRISE!

(5 months later)

"Tristan we're going to be late."

"I'm coming." He came rushing down the stairs. "I couldn't find my wallet."

"Where's Dustin?"

"Right here mommy." He turned around the corner and grabbed her hand. "Lets go."

They pulled into the parking lot and stopped the car.

"Are you ready for this Rory?"

"Why wouldn't I be?"

They walked into the doctors offices and signed in."

"Lorelai Gilmore?"

"That's us." Tristan said and squeezed her hand.

The nurse led them into the small office. "The doctor will be right with you."

Rory sat down on the patient chair and fidgeted. She smiled when she noticed that she wasn't the only nervous one, Tristan and her son were both wringing their hands. Like father like son.

The doctor finally came in. "Rory! So good to see you."

He sat down in his chair, clipboard in hand. After asking her several questions he set the papers down and stood. "Let's take a look then shall we?"

"Would you like to know the sex of your baby?"

Tristan stood from his chair and gripped her hand before nodding.

"It's a little girl. Congratulations you guys." He pointed to the screen, "That's her right there."

"I want to see too." Dustin climbed up onto the chair and studied the screen. "Is that my sister?"

Rory nodded "Yup."

"That is so cool."

Tristan laughed. "I think so too."

They dropped Dustin off at school late and headed home.

"I can't believe this is actually happening."

Tristan took a hand off the wheel and rested it on her stomach.

"I have to call mom." She pulled out her phone and rested a hand on top of his. "Mom? Guess what, it's a girl!"

Tristan could hear Lorelei scream over the phone and smiled.

"I figured we would wait to do that mom, there is still a chance…." She didn't finish her sentence.

She nodded, "I just don't want to jinx anything."

She smiled. "I know, Love you too. Bye."

Tristan pulled into their driveway. "You shouldn't thing that way. It's not going to happen. This time."

They went into the house and sat down on the couch.

"There is still a chance though, and you know it."

"Rory, we are going to have a beautiful baby girl that's going to probably look just like you." He slid his handover her stomach. "She is healthy and strong, she has the Gilmore blood." He kissed the corner of her mouth and rubbed her stomach. "Are you hungry at all?"

"Not really." She turned into his butterfly kisses and smiled against his lips. "I believe you Tristan."

"Good." He kissed her again and pulled away. "I'm going to get something to eat."

"I'll come with you."

(Two months later)

"Tristan? Why is it so dark in here?"

"I guess I forgot to leave a light on."

She flicked on the light and jumped.


"Oh my god." Rory rested a hand on her stomach and smiled. "Tristan how'd you keep this from me?" she went around and hugged everyone. "What is this? The whole of Stars hollow in my home?"

Patty pushed through the crowd. "It's a baby shower Rory, of course we're here!"

Rory smiled. "Well, you definitely got me."

She let her mom lead her to a chair surrounded by presents. "Where is Lane?"

"She'll be back in a minute; she went with Luke to pick up sookie and the cake."

"You guys really shouldn't have."

Tristan smiled and bent to remove her shoes. "We wanted to." He kissed her on the forehead, "Do you want anything before the party starts up?"

"Some coffee?"

"Nice try." Tristan laughed. "You've only got a few more months left to wait for that one. How about some water?"


As soon as he headed off Babbette took over. "Oh sugar! You look beautiful!" she hugged Rory and handed her a safety pin. "If you say baby and someone hears you they get your pin. Watch what ya' say!"

She smiled and walked off towards the food table.


"Where is Dustin?"

"Over at the sitters."


"You do really look good hun."

"I feel like an elephant."

Tristan handed her water and smiled. "I agree with Lorelei."

(A few hours later)

I'll pick up Dustin and take him back to Stars Hollow with me for the night- let you guys have some alone time."

"Thanks mom."

"No problem, I'll see you two in the morning." Lorelei hugged her daughter and Tristan before leaving.

"Now what?" he asked.

"We can take all this stuff in the nursery."

"I guess now is as good a time as any." He lifted the heavy toy set and lugged it up the stairs, "Don't carry anything heavy."

She grabbed two bags shoved full of onesies and followed him up, placing them next to the closet. "I don't think I have enough energy to bring the rest up." She sat down in the rocker and closed her eyes.

"Don't worry about it then."

"Rory?" Tristan rubbed her arm. "Let's get you to bed."

She opened her eyes slowly and yawned, "Did I really doze off?"

He nodded.

"Sorry." She stood with his help and they went to their room.

"Tristan!" Rory shouted

"What's going on?" He saw immediately that something was wrong and ran to the bathroom. He noticed right away that there was blood on the floor. His heart stopped, and only one word made sense in his mind….Miscarriage.

"I woke up because I had to pee and I came in here and saw blood on my legs." She was half hysterical with tears in her eyes. "We need to get to the hospital!"

Tristan quickly lifted her in his arms and bolted out of the house and to the car where he gently placed her in the back seat. "Don't panic, she's fine."

"What if we loose her Tristan?"

"We aren't. Don't even think it!"

A/N: hi! Don't panic…..well, I guess you can…I'll try to update as soon as I can, the next chapter isn't done….sorry. Anywho, tell me what you think! And don't kill me.

-Over and out-
