"Wow!" Alexis exclaimed, stepping inside the room "Can you believe we're finally on our own?"
"Yes, I can," A husky voice answered while putting their arms around her waist "I told you we would make it."
"Yes, you did." She whispered, turning to meet Logan's brown eyes.
He smiled in return and kissed her passionately.
"How cute." Someone drawled playfully from the door.
"Travis." Logan groaned, breaking away from his girlfriend reluctantly.
Alexis hit him gently.
"What was that for?"
"Be nice," She ordered before walking away "Travis, where's my best friend at?"
"Right here," Riley's gruff voice came, sitting a few boxes on the floor "I hope that's all of them."
Alexis ruffled Riley's hair. Over the year, it had grown much thicker.
"It is." She smiled, pushing the hair out of the way so his eyes were visible.
"Thank God." He sighed.
Alexis rolled her green eyes in response.
"Hey, those were heavy!" Riley defended, taking a seat on the unmade bed.
"Would it help if I told you I loved you?" She joked.
"Not in front of the boys," He smirked, eyeing Logan then Travis "We should finish unpacking too."
"I know." He agreed, crossing his arms over his chest.
"You guys should really finish now." Logan added hopefully.
"Aw, Trav," Riley cooed as he stood up "We're not wanted."
He pretended to be hurt.
"I love you guys," Logan stated "But-."
"We know," Travis laughed "Don't worry, we'll go."
"Yeah," Riley agreed walking toward Alexis "I'll be back later."
"Of course you will." She affirmed, taking hold of her boyfriend's strong hand.
Riley cocked an eyebrow and smirked in reply before leaving behind Travis.
"Well, Mr.Impatient." Alexis mocked as she scanned the apartment.
The walls were beige throughout with white border along the middle. The kitchen and bathroom were fairly small, but big enough for two people.
"Hey." Logan whispered, touching her shoulder.
Despite herself, Alexis flinched and turned around.
"Sorry." He frowned.
She smiled sympathetically and grabbed his hand, leading them into the bedroom.
"About the bed," Logan started "If you're not comfortable, I'll sleep on the couch."
"This is our apartment," She told him "And we're going to share."
He still wasn't convinced.
"Look," Alexis sighed as they sat together on the bed "We've slept in the same bed before."
"This isn't the same, baby," Logan augured "Those were nights when you couldn't sleep because of-"
"Don't finish," Alexis ordered hopefully "I love you."
"And I love you."
"Trust comes with love," She stated, placing a hand on his knee "I trust you."
Finally, Logan nodded in agreement.
"Besides," Alexis said, leaning in to kiss him "I'm sure there will be plenty of times when you will be on the couch."
"Really," Logan smirked "And what makes you think that you won't be the one on the lovely sofa of ours?"
Alexis simply giggled as their lips finally met. Logan laid back, putting the soft body on top of him. She ran her hands though his newly cut hair.
Surprised by the voice, Alexis quickly jumped up, blushing madly. Logan groaned for the second time.
"Sorry," Riley apologized, taking a step inside "But, Travis and I thought you two might want to go eat with us."
"I do," Alexis answered happily, slowly turning her head "What about you, Mr.Grumpy?"
"I am not grumpy," Logan protested childishly "And yes, I'll go."
"Meet us at our place in an hour." Riley confirmed before walking out quickly.
"Don't worry," Alexis cooed "There will be plenty of time for us, I promise."
Logan smiled softly and cradled her chin.
"I know we're only eighteen and starting college," He whispered "But, I want to be with you forever."
"Even when I'm old and saggy?" She questioned playfully.
"As long as you will want me." He confessed.
Alexis smiled and kissed his soft, pink lips.
"You know I will."
