"You know you can't stay here forever, right?" Camille asked with a smirk, tilting her head to find Logan's shining eyes staring back into her own. He only encircled his arms around her waist, pulling her closer to him as he buried his nose into her curls.
"I think I could figure something out," he murmured.
Camille turned around in Logan's arms so that she was looking at him directly. He hadn't left her apartment all day. It wasn't something to complain about, but Camille was worried that Logan wouldn't let her out of his sight because of what she'd told him the night before. She didn't want him to look at her differently.
"Logan, can I ask you a question?" Camille asked, moving her fingers in patterns in the palm of Logan's hand.
"Anything," he replied with a soft smile, twirling one of her curls around his finger.
Camille swallowed. "Did you...did you only get back together with me because you felt sorry for me? Because Logan, I don't want you to pity me-"
"I'm with you because I love you," Logan cut her off, something that seemed to be happening a lot these days. He took both of her hands in his, kissing them both softly. "And I'm so sorry I hurt you. I was just frustrated because I thought you didn't trust me. I realize now how stupid I was being now that I know the whole story. I can understand now why you didn't want to tell me what was going on. You didn't deserve any of that. Not from me or..." Logan trailed off.
"Jackson," Camille finished softly, trying her best to push memories of her childhood out of her head. She bit her lip, unsure.
"You really mean it?" she asked. "You're with me because you love me?"
"Yes," he whispered, cupping Camille's delicate face in his hands. "You need to know that, Cam. Last night doesn't change how I feel about you, and it never will. If anything, I fell even more in love with you. After everything you've been through, and to still keep a smile on your face every day...it amazes me, Camille. You are the strongest person I know and I want you to know that I'm here for you."
Camille couldn't contain the small smile that graced her lips. "I'm sorry," she shook her head. "It's just that..."
"You're afraid of being alone?" Logan finished for her, his eyes full of understanding.
Camille smiled. "Exactly."
Logan grinned and ran his hands up and down her arms soothingly. "Well I'm not going anywhere," he said softly, faintly kissing her lips before gathering her in his arms in a tight embrace. Once they pulled away, a look of curiosity appeared on Logan's face.
"Hey Camille?" he asked as he held her petite form in his arms.
"Yes?" she replied sweetly, looking up at him.
"When was the last time we went on a real date?"
Camille scrunched her face in thought. "I don't believe we ever went on a date, unless you count our first school dance here at the Palm Woods," she answered.
"Well I say it's time we change that, don't you think?" Logan asked. "I want to go all out for you, Cami. How about tomorrow night? We don't even have to go out if you don't want to. We can just stay here and I can cook you dinner...and it would be just the two of us. We'll just dance and watch movies... We could spend the whole day together and just talk about our fut-" Logan's words were cut off by Camille's slender finger being placed on his lips gently.
"Logan, breathe," Camille said with a small laugh. "And yes, tomorrow night sounds great," she added, smiling brightly.
Logan smiled and placed a kiss on Camille's forehead.
"I love you, Cami."
"I love you too, Logan. Logan?" she asked again.
"Are you and James okay?" she asked. She didn't want to upset him, but she had to ask.
"We're fine," he said with a shrug, the pitch of his voice rising.
"Logan, please don't be mad at him. This is all my fault. I was going through a hard time and he was just trying to be a good friend. He didn't make a move on me or anything. I promise," she pleaded. "I know you told him to stay away from me, but Logan, James is my friend. I know that might not be exciting news to you, but he's a part of my life too. You don't have to be jealous of our friendship," she says, her eyes completely serious.
Logan sighed. "I'm not jealous of you and James' friendship," he lied.
Camille raised her eyebrows, giving him the 'I don't believe you' look.
"Okay...maybe a little. I guess I was upset that James knew about all that you've been through before I did," he admitted. "I wanted to be the one that you shared your music with. I wanted to be the one that made you feel better. I know that sounds selfish, but even though you did open up to me, I can't help but feel like James beat me to it...like he always does," he mumbled the last part, but Camille still heard him. Her face softened.
"He gets to listen to you sing before I do, he gets to hear about your past before I do...Heck, he even got to kiss you before I did! So yeah, I am still mad. Don't I have a right to be? James has been a better boyfriend to you than I have. What does that say about me?" he continues, his voice raising by the minute.
Camille was shocked. She knew that Logan was upset at James, but she didn't know he had been keeping so much of his anger inside like this. She didn't know just how much this whole ordeal had...hurt him.
"How long have you felt this way?" Camille asked softly. "Logan." She tilts his head up so that their eyes meet.
Camille sighed. "Listen to me, Logan. I love you. I want to be with you. You're my boyfriend. I just wish you would give yourself more credit for how amazing you are," she whispered.
Logan took her hand in his and ran his thumb over her knuckles. "I'm sorry I blew up like that, Camille..."
"No need to apologize. You needed to blow up. It's never good to keep everything inside like that," Camille says. "Do you think you're ready to talk to him now?"
Logan thought it over for a second. Now that he had gotten everything out in the open, it would make it easier for him not to blow up on James like the last time.
He nodded slightly. "Yeah, I think so, Cam."
Camille smiled. "Great!"
Logan hesitantly looked towards the door. "Are you sure you're going to be okay by yourself?"
Camille giggled at him being so overprotective. "Yes, Logan. All I'm going to do now is go to sleep anyways," she reassured him.
"Okay, we're right next door if you need anything." He leaned down to give her a soft kiss. "I love you."
"I love you too."
Logan entered apartment 2J quietly and set his keys onto the counter. He walked into the living room, where Carlos, James, and Kendall were sprawled out onto the couch watching a movie.
"Sup Logan?" Carlos greeted.
"Is Camille okay?" Kendall asked.
Logan smiled. "She's better." He looked over at James, who took that as his cue to leave.
"Well, I'm gonna just head to my room..." he trailed off as he stood up from his place on the couch.
"Wait, um...I actually wanted to talk to you, James. Is that okay?" Logan asked.
James was surprised. This was the first time Logan had spoken to him in days. He sat back down onto the couch. "Of course it is," he replied.
Logan would have asked Kendall and Carlos to leave, but he figured they would be eavesdropping anyways. Besides, they were all brothers.
Kendall scooted over so that Logan could sit next to James as he and Carlos looked back and forth between the two intently.
Logan sat down next to James before closing his eyes and sighing. When he was sure he was calmed down, he spoke.
"James, I wasn't mad at you because you were being a good friend to Camille. In fact, I appreciate it. What I didn't appreciate was you going behind my back and doing something that you knew I wasn't comfortable with...but now that I look at things from your perspective, I can understand why you did it. I wouldn't have been able to deny Camille when she was going through something like this either," Logan stated, James nodding and agreeing with every word he said.
Logan clapped his hands together. "So, I'm willing to put all of this behind me if you can answer this one question," he said seriously.
James nodded. "Of course, Logan," he said.
Logan took a deep breath. "Do you still have feelings for Camille?" Logan needed to know if James was hanging out with Camille to support her, or if he just wanted an excuse to be around her all the time because he liked her as more than a friend.
James gulped. "Don't lie, James. This is what got you into trouble the first time," a voice in the back of his head says.
"But if you say yes, Logan will probably never forgive you," another voice said.
Logan smiled. "Great." He pulled James into a hug. "I'm gonna head on to bed, but maybe we could go and get breakfast tomorrow?" he asked.
James could do nothing but smile and nod as Logan made his way down the hall to his room. He frowned when he saw Kendall giving him a disapproving look.
"Are you crazy?" Kendall exclaimed. "I cannot believe you just lied to him. Again."
"I didn't mean to! Plus, I didn't want him to be mad at me forever," James countered.
Carlos scoffed. "Logan can't hold a grudge against one of us. I bet he would have forgiven you by next week," he added, stuffing a handful of popcorn into his mouth.
"I've got this under control you guys, trust me," James said calmly.
Kendall shrugged. "If you say so," he said under his breath.
A/N: James has it under control this time, I promise you. Haha.
