At the end of the last season of Gilmore Girls on the final episode I was extremely disappointed that Rory had ended up with no one, and most of all I wanted her to end up with Jess. So here goes my first fanfiction on how Rory and Jess end up together on the final episode on Gilmore Girls. Hope you guys enjoy and remember it’s only a draft!
After the graduation party that the good people of Stars Hollow threw for Rory, she went for a walk along the street by herself, and started thinking about her life and how far she has come, she had finally reached her dreams, and she was going to leave her family and friends and her home town. She knew Stars Hollow was one crazy town but she loved it, she loved the people, she loved the beautiful memories that her and her mother created here, but she knew she had to move on to bigger and better things.
Rory’s mind started drifting off on to Logan’s proposal, she still couldn’t believe he proposed, but deep inside she knew it wasn’t right and she couldn’t say yes. As Rory continued walking while her mind was still drifting off she saw a dark figure standing in front of her, she couldn’t picture who it was in the dark, but that figure seemed so familiar like she knew that person, the figure was heading towards her closer and closer, and stopped right in front of her and said, “Rory?”
Rory stood there frozen unable to speak or move is this who I think it is? She thought to herself. She took a closer look at him and she knew straight away it was Jess that was standing right in front of her in Stars Hollow. She hasn’t seen Jess in years, she didn’t know why he was back here.
“What are you doing here?” she managed to finally say.
“Luke told me about your graduation and your big break as a journalist, I came to congratulate you.”
“So you came all the way from New York just to congratulate me?”
“Well yea, I mean this is such a great opportunity for you and you’re pursuing all your dreams so I’m really happy for you Rory Gilmore.” Would he really come all the way to Stars Hollow just to congratulate her? I mean he doesn’t even like Stars Hollow she thought to herself.
She turned her back on Jess and started heading towards the party again. People might be looking for her she thought to herself, after all the party is thrown for her, she quickly walked away but could feel at the back of her head Jess still looking at her. Once the party was over Rory walked on her own home, Lorelai was probably spending the nights at Luke’s she thought to herself. As Rory headed towards her front porch she saw someone sitting there waiting for her, she moved in closer and to her surprise saw it was Jess again.
“What do you want Jess?”
“A chance to talk to you.”
“About everything, like how have you been since the last time I saw you?”
“I’ve been good I guess, what about you? Are you going to write a second book?”
“Maybe one day but not right now, I just want a long break to give me time to think and breathe.” Look Rory the real reason why I came to Stars Hollow is not just to congratulate you but also to talk to you about us, Luke told me about you and Logan.”
“I don’t know Jess, there’s no more us anymore you know that. I’m still having a hard time dealing with the Logan situation and now you came all the way from New York to talk about us is making me more confused, please understand Jess.”
“I do understand but before you say anything I have to tell you this, I know the last time I saw you we agreed to be friends, but the more I think about it the more I don’t want to be just friends with you anymore. All these years you had Logan but me I had no one ever since that day I left and went New York I’ve never stop thinking about you Rory, it’s been you all along and it will always be you.”
“No Jess you can’t say these things to me right now, it’s not fair. I’m not ready to be in a relationship with anyone especially you.”
He headed towards her more, and held one of her hands. “I’m sorry for doing this to you right now, but I can’t let you leave and not tell you this, I cannot let this perfect opportunity slip away, I Love you Rory, I always had, I just didn’t know how to tell you.” As much as she didn’t want to admit it she felt right standing there looking into Jess’s chocolate brown eyes, he looked so sincere. She could feel her heart do a little twirl inside but she didn’t know why after all these years of not being with Jess she had thought she was over him, but how could a few minutes of talking to him now could change everything.
Right at that moment Jess continued to look into her eyes and he leaned in and gave her a soft, delicate kiss on her lips. Rory had never felt so confused in her life she was leaving tomorrow, she just got out of the biggest relationship of her life and was still sad about it and now Jess is back. Even though she was still confused about the situation she couldn’t help but kiss Jess back. She didn’t know why she kissed him back, but she knew it felt right.
