16. Back To The Beach
It was the day of the Venice Beach meet up and Mallory was more excited than ever. She woke up early to shower, dryed her hair and put it in a bun, put on her black bikini and some shorts to cover up and applied her makeup, dark pink lipstick and aviators being the finishing touch to her look. She ate pancakes with her mom, before brushing her teeth and climbing in the car to meet them all at Venice. She arrived at around 11 to see Logan stood alone, holding a bunch of red roses and wearing some black Hollister swim shorts and some flip flops. She ran towards him, her Carolina Herrera sandals almost falling off and her Michael Kors bag swaying as she took a step. "Hi." Mallory squealed, jumping into his arms. "I can't wait for tonight, babe." Logan said. "Oh these are for you." He said, handing Mallory the roses. "Thank you, there beautiful." She said, putting them in her bag for safety. "Where are the girls?" She asked, looking around down to the beach. "Oh there already down there, they found your favourite spot." Logan said,taking her hand and heading down the sandy, golden beach. "Hey Mallory." They all said, giving her a hug before she lay out her towel next to Ashleigh and Kaitlyn.
They spent the whole day down at the beach and it was the best day Mallory had had in a while, excluding her trip to the designer stores with Lauren a few weeks ago. She told them all about the crap weather, the adequate school and the great friends she had made, they went in the water together for a while and Mallory caught some much needed sun for hours before they went their separate ways, Logan driving Mallory to Malibu to grab her stuff before they headed to his house, where his parents had left him alone for the whole night.
They were eating a dinner cooked specially by Logan's family's maid and Logan produced 2 black boxes from his pocket. "Logan? What the hells that?" Mallory stuttered, her hand shaking as she thought it was something she didn't really want yet: engagement rings. "I picked it up after you told me you were coming back, I hope you like it." He said, shifting the boxes over to her. She opened the first to see a silver, diamond encrusted infinity ring, engraved saying 'I love you forever.' and the other box being a promise ring, with two loves hearts and also engraved with 'I promise Mallory, Logan x'. "Oh Logan! There gorgeous!" She said, kissing him and letting him place the rings on her finger. "I knew you'd love them!" He said. "I'll have to give you a extra special present." Mallory said passionately, unzipping the back of her D&G black dress to reveal her newly sunkissed skin. "Come on Mr Summers, we have a lot of catching up to do." She said, walking him to his room, grabbing her clothes in case his parents returned.
