A is for: Abandoned

They both knew what it felt like to be abandoned by their mothers. They had loved them unconditionally and both had left them. Abandoned them to a life with just their fathers. Though in Veronica's case this wasn't exactly a punishment. It was still hard for both of them to figure out why someone who was supposed to love them and raise them would decide to leave them behind. If someone loves you they should never want to abandon you and that's why Veronica and Logan could never abandon each other. Even when Logan picked on Veronica after Lilly's death he was still around harassing her making sure she knew he wasn't going to leave her alone.

They loved each other too much to stay away for long. They were never far from each other even when they were on one of their numerous breaks. They always came back together. They knew that when someone truly loved someone they were always there for you. Logan and Veronica loved each other too much to ever really abandon the other they just went through a never-ending cycle from enemies to friends to lovers. They understood the pain of being left behind and they never wanted to go through it again.

B is for: Back Up

It had all started second semester at Hearst. The FBI internship had been filled with coffee runs, copying, and answering phones. It had lacked surveillance and actual cases. The one time she offered her opinion on a case she overheard she was sent to clean out the dining hall. By July she was dying to get back to her P.I. office and pick up some cases. It was this lack of adrenaline that led her to the hospital at three in the morning with a concussion, bruised ribs, and a broken arm. When Mac had mentioned it to Logan, (Veronica wanted to strangle her for her big mouth why did she have to start dating Dick and hanging around those two!) he had stormed into her hospital room.

"What were you thinking?" He screamed as he burst past a nurse trying to explain that visiting hours were over. He slammed the door in her face and put a chair against it.

"What no singing cards were available at the gift shop?" She tried to joke.

"This isn't a laughing matter Veronica. You could have been killed! Do you want to die?" He was irate. Pacing back and forth across the small room, he reminded Veronica of the caged tigers at the zoo. He was foaming and ready to attack.

"No I don't want to be killed Logan, it just got a little out of hand."

"A little out of hand? A little out of hand? A little is when you throw a party and more guests than expected show up. Being beaten black and blue is not a little out of hand."

He walked up to the side of her bed with his fists clenched.

"I could strangle you for being so stupid!" He reached out towards her neck hands clenching. He quickly turned and paced the room some more.

"Logan…" She was worried. She hadn't seen him this worked up since the first time they broke up. He ignored her and continued to pace in silence for the next few minutes.

"This is the last time I am ever going to allow you to get yourself thrown into the hospital Veronica. I mean it." With that he kicked the chair away from her door and stormed down the hall. She stared out the door wondering what in the world Logan would get into this time.

It wasn't until she was back at her office two months later that she figured it out. On her first case out, a normal cheating spouse money shot gig, she noticed a car following her. She didn't think anything of it until it parked a few cars behind her and no one got out. Veronica battled between blowing her cover and missing the money shot or waiting until she had procured her paycheck. She went for the latter but her eyes kept drifting to her rearview mirror.

After two hours and pictures of the cheating spouse paying a hooker she got out of her car and confronted her tail. Taser in hand she walked around the back making sure she would have the element of surprise on her hand. She could see that it was a man. His hair was covered and he was wearing a nondescript hat. Noticing that the car was unlocked she jumped in the back behind his seat and held the taser to his neck before he could react.
"Who are you and why are you following me?" She demanded clicking the taser ominously.

"Veronica put the taser down it's just me." Logan sighed.

She tased him anyway. "What the hell are you doing following me around you jackass! I was worried that you were a hit man or something."

"Ow! Clearly if I was a hit man you would need more than your girl scout taser to help you. "

"Why are you following me?"

"I already told you."

"Logan…" The taser clicking again.

"If you're not going to stop putting yourself in danger than I'm just going to make sure I can prevent you from getting killed."

"Logan I know you like to think your fists are lethal weapons but they're not."

"Veronica I'm serious."

"So am I Logan. Stop following me around." She got up and went back to her car.

It didn't stop him. In fact it made him more determined. She was starting to loose cases because he was being so damn persistent. She left early, he followed, she went during his classes, he skipped. She even switched cars thinking he'd bugged hers and he still managed to find her.

It was when she lost her third case because the client had noticed two cars following them instead of one that she knew something needed to be done.

That night she went to his suite at the Grande and opened the door with her old key card.

"Logan! Get out here now!"

"What no honey I'm home?" Logan asked walking out of his room in a towel.

"We need to establish some ground rules if you are going to keep stalking me!"

"You know that's not how it works. The court is supposed to give me restraining orders not you."

"Listen here if you don't want your car to be a cube of crushed metal keep talking."

Logan eyed her suspiciously but kept quiet.

"1. You will only accompany me on cases that I know are risky. 2. You will be in my car if you are asked to come on a case. 3. You will do everything I say and if you don't listen to me I will hurt you. Understand?"

"Yes except the fact that I'm coming on all cases you have a knack for getting into trouble no matter what case you are working on. Also how do you expect to keep me in line? With your FBI Barbie Taser?"

"Logan you can't come with me on every case!"

"Says who?"

"Umm Me."

"Well here are your options Veronica, you can either have me come on every case that involves surveillance and under cover work or I'll pay Weevil massive amounts of money to install a tracker in your car."

"Weevil won't do that." Veronica stated confidently, "He hates you."

"True but I'm sure I can find someone else who will do the same job."

"You wouldn't."

"Do you want to find out?"

Veronica fumed and started to leave.

"I guess I'll just see you outside the Anderson's house tonight then."

"How did you know I was working on their case?"

"You forget what love does to Mac's brain."

Veronica cursed under her breath, Mac really needed to learn to keep her mouth shut.

"Fine! Meet me at my house at seven and if you are one minute late I will hurt you." She stormed out of the suite and slammed the door.

Logan grinned and went to his room to get ready. He knew she would finally succumb to having more handsome back up now he just needed to win her back again.

C is for Content

He would never, ever, under pain of death tell anyone that the best part of his day was cuddling with Veronica. No matter how good the sex was, and trust him it was good, it never matched up to encasing Veronica in his arms and knowing that when he woke up in the morning she would still be there. It was one of the few things that made him truly content with the world.

and Crazy

They drove each other crazy. Plain and simple. They had gotten past the emotional distance and just taking a break to screaming at each other regardless of who was around. One time on a double date with Mac and Dick they had gotten into an intense shouting match about what entree they wanted to split. The maitre d' asked them to leave until they figured it out. Dick and Mac watched through the window as Logan and Veronica went from yelling in each others faces, to the others back and to the sky. They continued like this until Logan grabbed Veronica to his body. He took hold of her chin and kissed her on the lips. The fight went out of her and she leaned in to further reciprocate. When they broke the kiss they made there way over to the side alley.

Dick looked at Mac, "Do you think they're..." He waggled his eyebrows at her.

"Please," She said in disgust, "They wouldn't do that in public. I'm sure they're just figuring the rest of things out in private." Mac looked down at her menu trying to reign in the heat she felt rise in her cheeks.

Twenty minutes passed until Veronica and Logan appeared, walking hand and hand back into the restaurant. Veronica's hair was all over the place and her lipstick was smeared across Logan's mouth and neck. Logan held out Veronica's chair and then seated himself.

"So are you guys ready to order?"
