Chapter One

Rory Gilmore needed coffee. Nine months on the ever moving campaign trail had only strengthened her need for the caffeinated beverage.

Rory wouldn't lie, the act of living out of a single suitcase, never being in one place long enough to scoop out the best coffeehouse and take out locations, was not her idea of living the dream. However, she did not mind, Rory wanted to prove herself as a writer, she wanted to work her way up from the campaign trail to an office in the New York Times. She knew that her grandparents would likely be able to pull a few strings here or there and have her working at a great newspaper by the end of the week but she didn't want anything to be handed to her and she didn't want anyone to have any reason to ever doubt her abilities as a writer.

Her mother taught her that through hard work and determination you can work your way to the top and you will earn more respect because of your struggle.

Still, that being said, Rory hated that the last real conversation she had with her mother was two months, three weeks and four days ago, she hated not being there to see Lane's twin boys grow up and having to miss Sookie's baby shower and only seeing her newborn through pictures and not yet in person. She hated the constant movement and never knowing where her next destination would be. Rory was a planner and not knowing where she would be sleeping the next night was not something that sat right with her.

But, despite its challenges, being on the campaign trail did have its perks. Rory was getting the opportunity to meet with and pick up tricks from other writers from all across the country! Not only that, but her only articles were being published as quickly as she could write them! Her online publications were starting to gain a rather decent following!

Walking into the coffeehouse recommended by the lady at her motel she ordered an extra-large coffee and claimed a small table by the window where she could work and enjoy her coffee simultaneously. Moments later she was finishing up her latest article with a half empty cup by her side. Once she finished putting the final touches into her work and proof read it for the fifth time just to be safe, Rory sent it off to her boss for a final review and with any luck she would see it on the website later that night.

With a moment to herself, Rory decided to take a second to browse through the news from the rest of the country. Even though she was considered an online writer she still preferred to read the news from a good ole newspaper.

That morning she had managed to get her hands on a copy of the Chicago Tribune, New York Times, and The Wall Street Journal along with several other lesser known papers, all of which she pulled out of her bag and spread across the table. Somewhere in between an article from the Chicago Tribune about the problem of greenhouse gases and an article from the New York Times on the scandal revolving around New York's mayor, a certain name caught her eye in the headlines.

HUNTZBERGER HEIR DIAGNOSED WITH CANCER – MONEY UNABLE TO DRIVE AWAY THIS CURSE

Rory froze. No it couldn't be true. Opening up the paper with shaking hands she proceeded to read the article.

Sources have confirmed that Logan Huntzberger, son of Newspaper mogul Mitcham Huntzberger and heir to the Huntzberger fortune has been diagnosed with an advanced and aggressive form of cancer. As of this past Monday, Logan was admitted to New York-Presbyterian University Hospital Columbia of and Cornell to receive further and more intensive treatment then he was being previously given. While the type of cancer is unknown to the public, we do know that it is an aggressive form and requires intensive treatment. Our prayers go out to the family in hopes that there son and brother will be able to fight this terrible disease. One thing is for certain cancer is a terrible aliment that will take any victim regardless of age, status, race, or religion, with any hope one day in the near future a cure will be found to prevent such pain and heartbreak amongst families.

Rory couldn't believe it. Cancer. Logan had cancer and she was finding out from a poorly write article in the Sunday paper! How could this be, not six months ago she and Logan had been living together and he had seemed perfectly fine! Or maybe he wasn't, what if she had just missed the symptoms, ignored the signs. What if he had been sick all along and she had been too worried with graduation and finding a job to notice? She had to go back, she had to see him! Rory gathered up all of her things, downed the last of her coffee, and practically ran out the door. On her way back she ran into Sara one of the other newbie reporter on the trail. The two had instantly hit things off and vowed to look out for each other in the sea of bloodthirsty reporters desperate to be the best.

"Rory, what wrong!"

"Logan, he , hospital, go, now."

"Rory, deep breaths, what happened, start from the beginning." Sara spoke putting her hands on Rory's thin shoulders.

Taking a few deep breaths Rory was able to stop panicking and think clearly for a moment. "Okay, well do you remember the guy I told you about from college, Logan?"

"Logan, the one who proposed Logan?" Sara said surprised.

"Yes him, well I was just reading my newspapers when I stumbled across this article about how he had been admitted to the hospital for some extreme form of cancer, and I don't know, some part of me just panicked. I know that I'm not supposed to care, I walked away, but Sara when I read that article I just reacted, I felt like I had to be with him."

"Then go, you can get a flight tonight back home and see him in the morning, but, Rory are you sure that that is what you want to do? You would be leaving everything that you worked for here on the campaign for some guy who you haven't talked to in half a year."

"I know it sounds crazy, I think it sounds crazy, but that feeling that I got when I read those words, everything just came rushing back to me and I don't know if I could ever forgive myself if he died and I knew but never too the chance to go see him and if anything tell him I am sorry for how things ended between him. I mean yes he was an idiot for giving me such an ultimatum but, I really did love him Sara and some part of me has never gotten the closure I needed. I mean I haven't so much as kissed another guy since Logan let alone actually moved on." Rory took a breath, "I think that this is something I need to do, I mean this is crazy and totally not like me, I mean I don't even have pro con list made, but I don't know it just feels right."

"Then go, I'll help you pack and take care of any gossiping idiots around here. Do you have your computer? I can find you a flight while you call your boss." Sara said already walking towards Rory's room.

"You're the best Sara really, thank you."

"Don't thank me, I know that you would do the same now let get working you have a flight to catch!"
