Luke&Lorelei love!  
Title: Inner Circles of Heaven and Hell
SummaryEarly mornings bring nose-kisses and revelations for Luke and Lorelei. Gilmore Girls fic!
Word Count: 545 (drabble)
Notes:  These two are the best couple on television, ever. I cannot do them justice.

Ring. Ring.


Oh, this has got to be one of the inner circles of hell. Her eyes are firmly shut and she's pressing her face very, very determinedly into her pillow, but she's sure that i she raises her hands, there will be fire and shrieking and Hitler and Ivan the Terrible playing a game of netball in her immediate line of vision.

"Tunredoofff" she mumbles into her pillow. "Gowaaay, 'mnothere."

"Yes, you are," a friendly voice mumbles into her ear.

Hang on.

A familiar smell of flannel and spices, a comfortably stubbly cheek against hers, lips all cracked and pleasurably sandpapery somewhere in her hair...

Okay, maybe not on the inner circles of hell.

She rolls over onto her side, cracks up one eye. A blurry mass of colors focuses on a face inches from her own, coming closer, planting a good-morning-kiss on her nose.

Fine. Scratch the hell-analogies. "Morning," Luke whispers.

"Middle of the freaking night," she replies. "What's with the nose kissing?"

"Seemed like something I should do," he replies, lightly.

She feels a grins spread over her face and scoots closer, kissing the top of his nose. "What do I do now?"

He laughs. "Go back to sleep? You're right, it is the middle of the night."


"Oh, yeah. I'll set the alarm for seven?"

"Sounds perfect." She closes her eyes again, and immediately feels sleep return. "You wanna kiss my nose again?" She mumbles, drifting away. She hears his laugh, feels his hands playing with her fingers for a second, and just as a dream is enveloping her, he mumbles, "I love you."


Her eyes fly open, the mass of color hands in front of her eyes for a second before it forms to Luke, in boxers, pulling on a gray T-shirt.

"What... what did you just...?" She props herself up against her elbows in a daze.

"Oh," he says, not meeting her eye as he detaches last night's jeans from under the bed, "ya heard that, did ya?"

"Uh-huh," she says slowly.

"Look, don't frea-"

"You loooooooooooove me," she says, giggling to hide her own giddyness, letting herself fall flat back on the bed, her fingers curling around the comforter, staring up at the ceiling, wide eyed. "You looooooove me. You just said so."

"Yeah, I-"

"You love my hair and my shoes and my voice and my caffeine addiction-"

"-well I'd have to love that, it's been keeping me in business for the past eight years-"

"-and you secretly love it when I eat junk food and use my cell phone in the diner and you love my Bangels T-shirt that you said was hideous and how I like to go to town meetings just to piss off Taylor and-"

He flops down on the bed beside her. They grin at each other, noses almost touching. Faintly blushing under his stubble, he says, with a grin. "Fine. I admit it. I'm hopelessly and completely smitten."

"Of course you are." She leans over and gives him a kiss on the nose. With their faces so close she can make out each and every of his entangled eyelashes, and whispers, "So am I."

And this has got to be one of the inner circles of heaven.
