Summary: Pre-series. Veronica gets Logan to the zoo.
Veronica grabbed Logan's hand. "Come on, I want to see the zebras."
He sighed. "I can't believe I let you talk me into this," he muttered as she dragged him. "How did you talk me into it?"
She giggled when she stared at him. "My infamous puppy dog eyes of course. You can never resist them."
"How did Lilly and Duncan escape this torture?"
"Celeste," Veronica answered simply.
They went by the zebras and Veronica happily watched them. "This really isn't that bad, is it? Spending time with me without Lilly and Duncan?"
Logan stared at her, and he heard the question that was actually being asked. "Veronica, me complaining has nothing to do with me spending time with you. I love hanging out with you. You innocent jubilance is refreshing. It's the zoo that I have a problem with."
She bit her bottom lip. "Well, if you hate it that much, we can—"
"No!" Logan blurted. He plastered a huge smile on his face. "We're here. Let's have fun."
"If you're sure..."
"I'm sure." He grabbed her hand. "Come on. The monkeys are calling my name."
She allowed him to lead her away from the zebras. She knew this really wasn't his thing, but warmth entered her heart at the fact he was trying to make this a good day for her.
She would have to find a way to thank him later.
