The next day at the house Logan and Rory slept late, exhausted from all the partying. As a wedding present Rory's grandparents and her mom and Luke had all pitched in to send them on an amazing honeymoon, starting with a Hawaiian cruise and ending up in Greece. In total they would be gone for almost two months, but that didn't start until the next week. Rory would get back in time for her third trimester, because traveling wasn't recommended that late in a pregnancy. They were both excited about the trip but were also excited to get home, get back to work and have a baby. Plus Rory would be writing a travel column while their, covering everywhere they visited and sending the pieces back to the newspaper. She was excited although Logan wanted her to have more fun and less work. Knowing Rory though, that would never happen.
When the finally got up and had breakfast their house was suddenly invaded by Colin and Finn.
Rory, used to such things by now, took it in stride and left them alone while she threw up her breakfast.
"Hey Logan, where's the old ball and chain?" Finn asked. Rory, who had just entered the room behind him cleared her throat.
"What I meant was the wonderful, sweet and very attractive ball and chain." Finn quickly corrected himself.
"What are you guys doing here?" asked Logan, lounging on the couch.
"Well we wanted to make sure that you two didn't stay in bed all day. Your child might get shaken baby syndrome." said Colin.
"Yes, it was pure concern for the little Huntzberger."
"I'm sure." said Logan.
"Actually, because we are graduated and you are married, we wanted to have one final, big stunt for the Life and Death Brigade before we all go off and get responsible." said Colin.
"Yes and since your honeymoon coincidentally coincides with some excellent locations..." continued Finn.
"Sorry guys, as much as I love putting my life at risk, I'm going to have to sit this one out. I've got a family to think of." said Logan, looking over at his new wife and the bulge that was his child.
"Oh don't worry." said Finn. "If something were to happen to you one of us would look after Rory."
Logan smiled. "As comforting a thought as that is, I just can't anymore. But I promise to watch from the ground."
"If thats the best we can hope for..." said Colin.
"Well if you really want to endanger your lives, I'll tell you what I can do, I'll plan the event." suggested Logan. "There's so many ideas I never got to use."
"Sounds fair." Colin and Finn agreed.
Rory smiled. "I'll help you plan." she said. "There needs to be one voice of reason. And since I can't drink for a while I guess its going to have to be me."
"Will you also be participating in the terrestrial festivities?" Finn asked.
"I wouldn't miss it!" Rory said enthusiastically. "As long as it's safe."
"I don't envy you." said Colin. "That baby is going to have a whole lot of Logan in him."
"Or her." Rory said quickly. "Besides, thats what I'm hoping for."
"I heard it was good luck to grope pregnant women." Finn said suddenly.
"I think that it's supposed to be good luck to touch their stomach..." said Rory. "But you stay the hell away from me."
"Yeah come on guys, thats my wife you are talking about." said Logan.
"Wives are fine with me." said Colin.
Logan gave him a whack on the shoulder. "Okay you ruined it, everybody out." he said, but wasn't really angry. "We need some time alone."
The two visitors shuffled out and Logan gave Rory a kiss. "Sorry about those guys." he said.
"What was that all about?" Rory asked.
"Oh it's always been a joke between us that we were going to cheat with each others wives. You know, all for one, one for all. Trust me, it's not going to happen."
"I hope not!" said Rory.
"I'll tell them to cut it out." said Logan.
"It's funny, now that I know they aren't serious." said Rory.
"I think it's half serious. I mean look at you Ace, your gorgeous."
Rory smiled at him. "Well we have some planning to do." she started. "Especially we have to plan some alone time for the two of us."
"Of course." Logan assured her. "I don't want to spend the entire honeymoon with them. And they are probably going to grow up and become boring and responsible after this."
"Well then what's the craziest thing we can think of?" Rory asked.
They discussed the plans for the Life and Death Brigade stunt for some time, periodically ending up back in bed as well.
"So Mrs. Huntzberger, are you happy?" Logan asked her finally.
"Mmm hmmm." she murmured, sleepily.
"We are leaving for our honeymoon soon, and then when we get back we are going to have a baby. Sounds perfect." Logan looked at her hair tumbled across his shoulder.
He didn't say anything more, just let her sleep there nestled against him and thought about all the things he had to look forward to now, where before it had seemed like his life was over.
His wife slept on by his side but Logan was awake for a long time, content, ready for anything that could come their way in the future.
