AN: An AU set Preseries. LoVe. Please review.
"C'mon Ronnie, we have to talk!" Logan shouted at her, chasing her through the empty corridors of Neptune High.
"No, we don't. We just need to forget that it ever happened, okay?" She replied, glancing over her shoulder at him.
"Veronica! Stop running. You're always running." Logan reached out and grabbed her arm, turning her to face him. "We need to talk about this." He mumbled quietly, stroking her cheek with his thumb.
"Logan." She groaned. She stood on the tips of her toes. She leaned her head to right as he tilted to the left. And as their lips met, it was like the end of days, with beautiful sun lit days, waves crashing on the shore, doves flying, rainbows, and all that other sentimental, beautiful imagery.
As his hands fell to the small on her back, pulling her flush against him, her hands ran through his hair, forcing his lips closer to her own.
He smiled against her lips, his hands rising higher up her back. She felt his arousal through the tight jeans he was wearing. And she gasped at it.
"Logan." She mumbled. Hearing the need in her own voice, she's shocked to find herself pulling him into an empty classroom. He laughed as she tugged him with all her strength.
Once inside the room, she pushed him against a wall and attacked his lips. The feeling of them against her own was becoming second nature to her now. She couldn't control herself anymore as she slipped her tongue out and dragged it across his lips, seeking to taste the inside of his mouth again.
He moaned in appreciation and opened his lips, sucking her tongue into his mouth. Their tongues danced inside his mouth as he pushed her backwards, leaning her over a desk.
Her tongue fought with his and won. She tasted something, alcohol maybe, on his tongue and in his mouth as she searched every crevice. Her hands fell to his ass as his hands got tangled in her long blond hair. She cried out as he pulled back.
"Whoa." He gasped, falling onto the empty chair beside the table. He licked his lips, tasting her strawberry lip gloss and how swollen they were from her attack. He blinked his eyes once, twice, before returning his gaze to her. She was fixing her hair and flattening her shirt where his busy hands had been only moments before.
"Wow. O..Okay, so yeah, we really need to talk about this." He said again, taking her hands in his, drawing her gaze to his eyes. And he found that her eyes were filled to the brim with desire. Just like his.
"Oh…crap." She blushed, looking at her handy-work. His lips were swollen, his hair was tussled and her lip gloss was all around his mouth. "We did not just make out again."
"Well, technically, you started it this time." Logan smirked as she stood up and grabbed another vacant seat.
"This is just so not good." She mumbled, dropping her head in hands.
"Hey, hey, it'll be okay." He said, reaching over and rubbing his hand on her in back in soothing circles. She leaned back into his touch and sighed.
"What are we going to do?" She asked.
"I don't have a clue. I keep thinking that the last time is definitely the last time, and then I see you and you look breath-taking and I lose all control of my systems. And that you're my girlfriend's best friend or my best friend's girlfriend seems to be pushed from my thoughts. And when we kiss, all that matters is me, you and our contact."
"Logan, we can't keep doing this. I mean, I have Duncan and you have Lilly."
Logan snorted and drew his hand back to his lap. "As have Weevil, Luke and God knows how many other guys'." He ran a hand through his hair and sighed. "But when I'm with you…God, the world seems to stop spinning."
She raised her head and looked at him questioningly. Seeing the honest look in his eyes, she takes one of his hands in her own. "Logan, I know Lilly loves you."
"Just not like I love her, I guess." Veronica tried to reply, but he interrupted her. "It's okay. No, uh, you know, it kinda let's me off the hook, you know, I-I don't know, I don't have to feel guilty anymore."
"Guilty 'bout what?"
And Logan leaned in, capturing Veronica's lips in a searing kiss. His hand stroked her cheek again as her hands went behind his neck. She moved her closer to his so they'd be closer. Breathing out, Veronica pulled back.
"What are we doing?" She asked, mid laugh.
"No idea." Logan replied, whispering, as he leaned his forehead against her own. Logan pulled back and looked into her eyes. "Okay, I'm gonna ask you two questions and I want you to answer honestly. Can you do that?"
"Um," Veronica started, putting her finger to her lip "I think so." She giggled as he stroked her chin.
"Cool. Question one: Do you still love Duncan?"
"I'm….I'm not sure. I think, yeah, I still love him. But am I in love with him? That's the sixty million dollar question. He's been so distant lately; something weird is up with him. Every time I try to hug him or kiss him or just hold his hand, he dodges and moves as far away from me as possible. So, yeah, not sure that we'll be lasting much longer." Logan smiled at her answer before clearing his throat, his heart beating a mile a minute.
"Okay, second question: What do you feel for me?"
She took quick, shallow breaths, looked deep into his eyes, contemplated her thoughts and fidgeted some before she replied.
"I think that my…Oh boy, this is hard. Logan, I…I-I think I'm falling for ya." She said in a quick out burst.
Logan's heart swelled. He smiled a large grin, puffed his chest out, tilted her head upwards and kissed her hard and fast. She placed her hands on his chest and pushed, stroking him for a moment or two before pushing him away.
She sighed; looking at his lips was too tempting. She took a deep breath before looking directly in his eyes.
"Okay, now that my soul has been bared, I think it's only fair if yours is too. I have a question for you to answer too."
"What are your feelings for me?"
"Remember back 4 years ago? You were in those knee socks….and soccer outfit? Playing as if the world depended on it?" She nodded her head. "Well, the instance I saw you I knew I felt something for you. I was sitting with DK in the stands. He was the one that pointed you out to me. I saw you, and instantly knew I had to meet you. Then he told me that he was going to marry you some day. Kinda put a damper on my thoughts. So I took a step back and let Duncan date you. And then Lilly asked me out and we became the Fab Four and life was perfect. But, I don't know, I think that I've kept a place for you inside. And I have now lost macho points with you, right?" He asked, laughing.
Veronica's mouth hung open. She shut it, wet her lips and asked him "Since we were 12? You've liked me all this time?" He nodded. "Lilly always said we should hook up, that you were perfect for me."
"She did, huh?" He asked, lifting her onto his lap. "What else did Miss Kane tell you?"
Veronica smiled, and kissed his lips hungrily. Logan gasped silently before getting into the kiss. A couple of minutes later, the end of class bell rang out and they separated.
"So, I'll call you this evening?" He asked, placing kisses on her neck as he lead her to the door.
"Yeah. Then we can…talk some more about what we are gonna do about Duncan."
"What about Lilly?"
"Strangely enough, I think she'll be okay with the idea of us hooking up." Veronica said, kissing him one final time before leaving the room.
