Colin opened the door to his and Stephanie's apartment and was knocked backward. Rory and Logan rushed in and found Steph on the couch reading.
"Get your suitcases and start packing." Logan commanded.
"What's going on?" Steph asked.
"We're kidnapping you!" Rory said gleefully.
"We're kidnapping you! Now pack!"
Rory looked around as if someone might hear them. "We're eloping!"
She nodded excitedly. "Now get packed or we'll leave you here!"
"Finn's in the car along with the others." Said Logan "Hurry up."
"-are leaving in five minutes with or with-out you." Logan cut off.
Ten minutes later, they were in the car speeding off towards the airport. Colin and Steph had discovered Lorelai, Luke, Chris, Lane, Paris, Doyle, and Finn in the car waiting for them.
"So, what exactly is going on?" Steph asked after a minute.
"Well, we've decided to elope, and we're bringing you all with us!" Rory said happily.
"But doesn't that defeat the whole purpose of eloping in the first place?" Colin questioned.
"No, because this way we can skip the planning and just get straight to the marriage."
"Where are we going?"
Rory and Logan looked at each other and grinned. "Hawaii."
Rory's eyes suddenly went wide. "Mom"
"Should we have brought grandma and grandpa?"
Lorelai was quiet for a moment. "Do you want to have brought them?"
"….I don't know. I definitely know they'd want to be at my wedding, but I definitely know they wouldn't want me to elope."
"It's your call, hon."
Rory thought for a minute. "They'd be in the way." She said finally.
Lorelai nodded. "Okay. If that's what you want."
After about thirty minutes they arrived at the air port and boarded Logan's awaiting jet. The group flew off and landed in the beautiful Maui, Hawaii after a long and nerve wracking ten hour flight. The group then proceeded to head straight out to shop, and divided by gender. Rory and the girls picked out aqua dresses for themselves and a beautiful white gown for Rory. Logan and the guys picked out suits. By six that night, they were at the altar.
The preacher stood before them and finally began the ceremony.
"Dearly beloved, we are gathered here together on this blessed day to join these two people in matrimony. Who gives this bride to be?"
Chris and Lorelai stepped forward. "Her mother and I do."
He turned to Logan. "Repeat after me; I Logan Elias Huntzberger-"
"I Logan Elias Huntzberger"
"-take the Lorelai Leigh Gilmore-"
"To be my wife."
"To be my wife."
"For richer for poorer, in sickness and in health,"
"For richer for poorer, in sickness and in health,"
"In good times and bad, as long as we both shall live."
""In good times and bad, as long as we both shall live." He slipped the ring onto Rory's finger.
He turned to Rory and had her repeat the same, while slipping a ring onto Logan's finger. "And now, I pronounce you husband and wife." As Logan evolved Rory in a huge kiss, she began to worry. She had just gotten married. And she had eloped to do so. And it was her idea. What if something went wrong? What if they didn't make it? What if-
"Rory? Rory, wake up." Logan gently shook her shoulder. "It's almost eleven thirty, Ace. I made breakfast." He went back into the kitchen to get the food.
Rory rubbed her eyes and sat up. She looked around. She was in Logan's apartment. But how? She was just in Hawaii. "Logan?" she called. "Logan!"
Logan came into the room, a concerned look on his face. "What's wrong, Ace?"
"I- you- and we just- and we- what happened?"
Logan looked at her funny. "Are you okay? Maybe you're sick. Did you fall and hit your head? Because I can get you a doctor."
"Just tell me what happened last night."
"Well, we got home from your mom's-"
"Stop! We were at my moms. Why?"
Logan looked worried now. "Because you wanted to visit her." He said slowly. "Don't you remember? We ate at Luke's and I met Kirk….."
Rory's eyes widened. "You met Kirk? You met Kirk!" she said gleefully. She looked down at her hand. The promise ring was there, glimmering as beautiful as ever. But there was still one thing to test. "Did I throw this at you? And did you go to Australia?"
"No…." he said looking very worried. "I'm calling a doctor." He decided. "You just stay there and-"
"Eeek!" Rory screamed. She jumped out of bed and into Logan's arms. "It was a dream! All of it!" She grabbed his face and kissed him hard on the lips. "It was dream!"
"What was dream?"
"Everything! Oh my god, Logan I had this crazy dream! First I got mad at you and we had a fight and we broke up. And then after like three months we got back together and I said we should elope! And so we got my mom and Luke and my dad and Lane and Paris and Doyle and Steph and Colin and Finn and we flew to Hawaii and we eloped! In Hawaii! And then I got worried because grandma and grandpa wouldn't have been there and we did it anyway and it was a dream!"
Logan nodded slowly. "Okay….. So… we're happy?"
"We're very happy! I mean, I can see myself getting married, sure. But eloping? I'd be out of my mind. I'm just so happy that I didn't elope because when I get married I want a huge wedding! I mean, I didn't even have a real wedding dress!"
"Can I say something?"
"I think you've lost your mind."
"I might have!" she said happily. "I love you."
"I love you too, Ace." He kissed her. "How about we celebrate tonight? A We-didn't-elope dinner."
"That sounds amazing."
"Good. I know the perfect place. We'll leave around six, that alright?"
"Six is perfect."
At six thirty on the dot Rory and Logan arrived at a fancy French restaurant. They went inside and Logan told the hostess his name. She smiled and led them, to Rory's surprise, outside to the back. There they found an amazingly beautiful garden set with tables, flowers of all kinds, and lit with fairy lights. The hostess led them to the center table, inside a small gazebo. Logan pulled out Rory's chair as the waiter came up to the table. He poured them two glasses of wine, took their orders, and left them. As the couple ate they talked about current events, friends and family, books they had read, and just enjoyed each other's company. The waiter finally brought out dessert, a mouth watering chocolate dish. As Rory began eating Logan set a small box next to her plate.
She looked up at him. "You didn't have to get me anything."
He smiled. "I really wanted to get you this."
"Just open the box, Rory." Hearing her real name, Rory did so. She unwrapped the box to find a small jewelry box from Tiffany's. She opened the box and gasped.
"Rory, I love you."
"But this is a diamond ring. You don't give someone one of these unless you want to-"
Logan got down on one knee and looked up at her. "Rory, you were my first girlfriend. We've done so many crazy things together. We've stolen boats, faced families and society, hell, we jumped seven stories together. And I honestly don't think I can go another day with out knowing that I can be with you for the rest of my life. So I, Logan Huntzberger, playboy extraordinaire turned boyfriend, am asking you Lorelai Gilmore, queen of books turned well, turned queen of books, to marry me."
"-propose." Rory finished lamely. She sounded astound. "You just proposed to me." She said faintly.
"And you haven't given me an answer." He replied, still on one knee. He gazed up at her hopefully, making her heart melt.
"Yes." She said beginning to cry a little.
"Yes." Logan grinned and slid the ring onto her finger. The two stood up as she jumped into his arms and got a kiss that made her entire world spin. "Thank you." She said after a minute.
Logan pulled away a little and looked at her. "For what, Ace?"
"For loving me."
He smiled. "You never have to thank me for that, Rory."
She smiled back. "I know. But I want to."
Awww! The end! Sad! But I'll write a sequel if I get enough requests. This was hard to write, I'll admit. But I liked it. I hope you did too. I'm worried I went to fast, though. Please let me know if I did. If so, I'll either re-do it eventually or write something new and better. Reviews please, as always.
