A/N- First off, I'm sorry that I kept you all waiting until after the weekend for this last chapter. Life got in the way, and I wasn't able to hook up with my beta boo until today, but at least I got this out today! :)

Second, I just wanted to thank everyone who has been reading this, and all the people that have taken the time to review. You guys have been great.

Finally, I am dedicating this story to all my peeps at the 'Speaking of Fanfics Thread'. You know who you are. But, I mostly want to dedicate this to Aimee, who is like the coolest person I know. Without her, this story would still be sitting on my desktop collecting dust. :) So, thank you.

Aiight, now that I've made you all read through these boring author's notes, here is the final chapter of Oceans Away. Hope you like it! :)

**********************************

I launched myself at her, as she did the same. We held each other closer than I ever thought possible. I could feel tears streaming down my face, but I didn't care. I pulled her even tighter to me, and buried my face in her hair, breathing in her intoxicating scent that has changed ever so slightly. It almost smells like the ocean.

~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*

I launched myself at him, as he did the same. We held each other closer than I ever thought was possible. I didn't cry. I didn't want to, but the tears came nonetheless. They were tears of joy though. I buried my face in his chest and breathed in the scent that was uniquely his. It has changed over the year. It almost smells more outdoorsy, as if he had been outside more often than he used to be.

~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*

Suddenly, breathing in her scent isn't enough for me. I need to taste her. I pull away just enough so that I can take her face in my hands. I lift her chin up so that I can look in her eyes. I watch as the tears flow smoothly down her cheeks. I brush them away with my thumbs, and lean in towards her lips.

~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*

I feel content and safe in his arms, and can feel a twinge of sadness as he pulls away. The sadness quickly dissipates however, once I feel his hands cup around my face. He lifts my chin and I can look deeply into his eyes. The tears once again begin to flow freely down my cheeks, but a small smile creeps along my face. Logan brushes the tears away with his thumbs, and leans in towards my lips.

~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*

The first touch is very tentative. I want to keep my eyes open, never letting her out of my sight again, but this moment is too magical, and my eyes drift shut. The kiss becomes deeper and deeper, and I can feel Max's bag drop beside my feet as she snakes her hands behind my head, and begins to play with the little hairs on the base of my neck.

~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*

At first, our lips touch very gently. My eyes automatically close under their own will, but when they do, I know it's ok, because I'm going to be looking at Logan for the rest of my life. The kiss becomes deeper and deeper, and as I feel his tongue run along my lips, I drop my bag on the ground. With my hands now free, I reach behind his head, and pull him closer to me, all the while playing with the little hairs on the base of his neck.

~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*

I finally pull away from Max's mouth. I don't want to, but it's necessary. I'm out of breath, but I also have to know. She must have been reading my letters this whole time, because otherwise, how could she be here? That means that she read my question. That means she has an answer. I look into her eyes, but I can't find the words. She must know what I'm about to say, because she gives me a small smile, and nods.

~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*

We finally break our kiss. I don't want to leave Logan's mouth, but I know that he can't go as long as I can without air. As I watch him, I can almost see the thoughts flipping through his head. He finally looks down into my eyes, and before he can even form the words, I simply nod. I know that he is going to ask me what my answer is, and how can it be anything other than yes.

~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*

I would definitely have to say that this is the best day in my life. Not only has my love finally returned to me, but she has just agreed to be my wife. I give her a quick squeeze, and rush to my bedroom, leaving her for a split second. I return with the small, velvet box in my hand, and get down on one knee. I open the box, pull out the ring, and slip it on her finger.

~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*

I would definitely have to say that this is the best day of my life. I have finally made it home to my love, and have agreed to be his wife. Logan quickly hugs me, and then dashes off, leaving me stuck in my place. He comes back a split second later with a small, velvet box in his hand, and gets down on one knee. My eyes never leave his as he opens the box, takes out the ring, and places it on my finger.

~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*

My eyes never leave hers as I stand up. I lean in for another kiss, but this time, instead of holding her face, my hands begin to roam her body. I can feel hers begin to do the same, and chills run throughout my being. I pick her up in my arms and carry her to my bedroom. Our bedroom. I lay her down on our bed, and realize for the first time in a long time, that everything is right with the world, and I am exactly where I want to be for the rest of my life.

~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*

I continue to hold Logan's gaze as he stands up. He leans in for another kiss, but instead of holding my face like he did before, he places his hands on my body, and begins to let them roam. Chills run up and down my spine, and every part of my body responds more than I ever thought possible to his touch. I let my hands drift up and down his body, but pleasure rockets through me as I feel his strong arms pick me up. He carries me to his bedroom, our bedroom, and lays me softly down on our bed. As we continue to dive deeper into our relationship, I realize for the first time in my whole life, that everything is right with the world, and I am exactly where I want to be for the rest of my life.
