I have no idea how long we have been sitting here, but I'd be happy to stay out here and hold Logan all night. This moment is the most content and peaceful I've felt in a long time, and judging by her slow and steady breathing, I think the same goes for Logan. The sun is almost entirely set, causing the pond to be overtaken with darkness, but still, I refuse to interrupt us. As if she could hear my thoughts, Logan speaks for the first time in a while, keeping her head nuzzled against my neck.

"We should get going," she says in an almost sleepy and sedated voice as I feel her warm breath against my skin.

"I don't want to," I tell her as my arms begin to shake from her chuckling lightly.

"It's almost dark, and you have to get back for your party," She reminds me.

I almost completely forgot about the alumni party tonight. Jay and the guys will kill me if I'm not there, but I don't know if I care anymore. I just want to be wherever Logan is tonight.

"Come on," she says as she gets off my lap, taking the blanket with her and wrapping it around herself.

I let out a small whine from the loss of her contact, and she giggles at my neediness. I grab both of our empty cups and stack them within one another to throw them away back at the coffee shop.

"Hop on," I tell her as I turn my back towards her.

"Really?"

"Yeah, it's too dark to see through that maze of trees. I'd rather just carry you."
