"Why won't my sister visit?" Beth asked, looking at Quinn across her stack of blueberry pancakes.
After subtly checking to make sure Shelby wasn't listening, Quinn sighed. "You know how your mom is still angry at Mrs. Kim?"
"Yup," Beth said. "She wouldn't sell Mom that desk she really wanted, because she teaches singing."
"So your mom refused to talk to her," Quinn said. "For months. Until Miss Patty made them play nice."
"Silly grownups," Beth said, giggling.
Quinn nodded. "Your sister is the same way," she said. "She got angry at something your mom did years and years ago but there's no Miss Patty to get them to hug and make up."
"Maybe we can send Miss Patty to New York?" Beth asked.
"We could ask, but I think it would be better for your sister to come here," Quinn said, cringing internally at the thought of Rachel being confronted by Miss Patty, in all her glory.
"Can we call her?" Beth asked.
"We can try tonight," Quinn said. "Before you go to bed."
"Okay," Beth said, nodding, a serious expression on her face. Watching her carefully jab a piece of pancake, Quinn really hoped Rachel would finally cooperate.
"I can't," Rachel said, shaking her head and giving Quinn what she thought of as Rachel Berry fake smile #32. "I have those two shows New Year's Eve and there's a party after. I'll probably stay over."
"If you're sure," Quinn said, not really pushing it. She knew Shelby had invited Rachel up to Stars Hollow every year since moving to the small Connecticut town to celebrate the New Year but she always gave some semi-reasonable excuse that no one could argue with. "I know everyone would be happy to see you."
"I'm sure," Rachel said, her fingers nervously playing with her fork.
Quinn wasn't sure why she was surprised at her refusal. In the months she'd lived with Rachel, she'd never directly mentioned Shelby. And Quinn had seen the envelope with the card Beth picked out for Rachel's last birthday shoved, unopened, in a drawer.
Note: Set in Stars Hollow, and a few Gilmore Girls denizens will be mentioned or wander through later drabbles, but this really isn't a crossover in the strictest sense.
