Chapter 25

Three days later Aaron dropped Lorelai, Mike, Sarah, Evelyn and Dave at the airport. They were going on their annual trip to Mexico. Aaron couldn’t get all the days off and would be joining them in a few days. This year they rented a great house at an all-inclusive resort in Puerto Vallarta. Mike asked Aaron to join them at the beginning April and he immediately accepted.

“I’m going to miss you, Baby!” Lorelai said hugging him tightly.

“It’s only a few days and then I will be there with you!” He said kissing her nose.

“I’ll save the best bathing suits for you, ok?”

“You better!” he growled huskily.

She giggled and kissed him again.

“Come on Lor! God you guys are so ridiculous! It’s three days apart,” Evelyn said exasperatedly.

They pulled apart and grinned before Lorelai leaned over to whisper to her sister, “And I’m going to take the room right next to yours so when he does get there, you will hear ALL the mind blowing sex we will be having!!”

Evelyn paled a little, “You wouldn’t!!”

“Do you really want to try me?”

“But, but I am trying to get pregnant and need my sleep!” She squealed.

“Then back the fuck off Eve!! Think back to when you and Dave first got together and cut me some slack!” Lorelai hissed at her.

Evelyn looked at her sister, then huffed and stomped to stand by their mom and the luggage, “Sorry Lor. She is a bit out of sorts…” Dave explained.

Lorelai was thrilled that her sister and brother in law were trying to have a baby, but that didn’t give Evelyn the excuse to be a bitch to everyone like she had been.

“It’s going to be a LONG nine months for Dave if she keeps this shit up! I’m glad that she lives in Wyoming if she does!” Lorelai mumbled to Aaron.

Aaron chuckled and kissed her again, promising to see her soon. She waved and he walked back to Mike’s SUV that Aaron had driven them in. She got in line with her family and checked in, hugging her dad while they waited. He kissed the top of her head as they wound their way through the lines and then moved on to security.

The plane ride was uneventful, but Evelyn caused some drama when they got to their resort house. She was demanding that they get the master bedroom and poor Dave looked like he wanted to crawl into a hole at his wife’s behavior. Sarah pulled her aside and told her exactly how it was going to be for the rest of the trip and if she didn’t like it, they were more than welcome to find and pay for their own accommodations. Lorelai had never seen either one act that way before and was shocked before she walked away and took her bags to the room upstairs at the end of the hallway, loving the all-white room and unpacked.

She changed into a bathing suit, she grabbed her sunglasses, floppy hat, phone, sunscreen and a book she was reading and went down to find her Dad having the same idea as his youngest and they went to the pool to relax. She sent a few pictures to Aaron and took a selfie of her and her Dad for her album, then they ordered some drinks.

Lorelai relaxed the next few days and went swimming, did a few yoga on the beach classes, had a spa day with her mom and sister-who finally realized she was being a bitch and got herself together, and was turning nice golden brown from laying in the sun. She was thankful she was a lucky redhead and her skin tanned some instead of becoming a lobster. She and Aaron texted each other as much as they could, until he was finally on a plane down to them. Mike took Lorelai to the airport and waited at the luggage carousels until she saw him walking towards them.

And what a sight he was! Lorelai looked on in disbelief that the tall and incredibly sexy man walking towards her with a big grin on his face in blue shorts and a white t-shirt was hers! She grinned back and ran up to him and jumped into his arms. He glued his lips to hers and teased her with his tongue, missing the close contact and intimacy they always shared. She wrapped her legs around his waist as they kissed passionately before her father came up and cleared his throat, making them pull apart.

“I get you are in love, but I really would NOT like to see you conceive a child right here in your excitement ok?” Mike sighed.

Lorelai giggled and Aaron blushed a little, “Sorry Daddy!”

“Yeah sorry Mike. Thanks for coming to get me,” Aaron said, shaking Mike’s hand.

Mike shook his hand, smiled and helped Aaron find his bag as they drove back to the resort, telling Aaron about the deep sea fishing trip he was taking him and Dave on in two days. Aaron was excited and wound his fingers with Lorelai’s as they talked.

The next several days were blissful. Lorelai and Aaron went swimming, snorkeled, went fishing with Mike and explored the area during the day and made love several times a night. They slept with the balcony doors open and heard the waves of the ocean as they drifted off. Lorelai was convinced that it was heaven and never wanted to leave, especially being in his arms.

They were lying in bed together, talking on one of the last mornings after a rather passionate round of morning sex when Lorelai’s phone sounded to say she had a text message. She reached over and grabbed it as Aaron was kissing her shoulders as she read a note from Joel, ‘hey check your work email!’

“What does he mean by that?” Aaron asked.

“I have no idea. But let’s take a look!” She said snuggling back to him and opened her work email on her phone.

She saw an email from one of the assistant principals, Hank Barch, who was the activities and clubs coordinator. She opened it and read that the longtime girls dance team coach had quit and they needed a new one and to let him know if they knew of anyone who might want the position.

Lorelai sat up quickly letting the sheet fall down exposing her perfect breasts and she looked at Aaron with wide eyes. He was confused by her reaction, not knowing if it was good or bad.

“Oh my god!! Do you know what this means Baby?” She squealed at him.

“No a ghrà, I have no clue! So tell me!” He said chuckling and propping himself up on one arm.

“I have ALWAYS wanted to coach the team! Jane the old coach was so boring and didn’t connect with the girls and they hadn’t won a competition among the other schools in years!!” She all but yelled at him.

Aaron smirked, “So what are you going to do about this email?”

She got up, naked and starting pacing the room, “I mean I really want to do this! But at the same time, am I good enough to do this? I connect with the girls, but can I help choreograph routines that will let them win shows and get music ready? And teach AP classes? Those are a lot of prep just themselves. And that would mean more time away from us, too…”

He watched her pace and fell more in love with her as she turned and walked the other way, thinking and playing with a strand of hair as she muttered quietly. Her body was beautiful and he couldn’t help but smile. She was curvy where she needed to be and she wore it perfectly. He had seen so many women with zero curves and no shape to them-hell he had even dated some, but they really were not what he wanted. She was everything he wanted and wanted her to be happy.

“A ghrà, while I love spending every waking moment with you, I want you to be happy and if being the coach for the dance team would do that, then do it! I will be at every competition cheering you on and be your biggest fan. So if you want this, then do it and the rest will fall into place.”

She stopped pacing to listen to him and sat back on the bed, “Really? You won’t mind that things will be a little crazy?”

“I’m a K9 cop Lor, my life is the definition of crazy! That’s why we work so well together, because you go with the crazy. So email him back and tell Alex to push it along.”

“Are you sure?” She asked with a worried expression.

“Absolutely! Now send the email!!” He urged.

She looked at him and nodded her head, took a deep breath and typed out a reply to the email. She sent a text to Alex, not trusting her voice saying, ‘I sent an email to Hank. I want this Alex! Go talk to him!!’

She put her phone down and looked at the sexy man next to her, “What the hell did I just do?!”
