As things finally started to cool off between him and Veronica, he laid next to her, breathing slowly but heavily against her neck.

Which is why he ignored his phone at first. But it was ringing excessively. He sighed, kissed Veronica gently, and said quietly, "Sorry."

He reached over and picked up his phone with a grumble. "Yeah?" His voice exasperated.

He listened to the voice on the other end of the phone for a moment, and then replied, "What!?" Pause. "No... No I have no idea..... I swear I haven't heard from him........ She's right here, actually. You want to talk to her?"

He put his hand over the receiver and turned to Veronica. "Veronica... It's... It's your step-mom. She's wondering if we have any idea where Duncan's run off to."

He hadn't even known Duncan had run off until now. And now a sudden pang of worry and guilt came over him.

And not only did he want to know where Duncan had run off to, but why?

Whatever was happening, it wasn't good.

"It's not really a good time, Dick," Logan groaned. He looked at Veronica, then back at Dick. "I think we might have to head back early."

"What? Leave early, dude? That is so messed up. We haven't done anything mexican-y yet and I have not even gotten to look at one chica's boobs." Dick pleaded with Logan.

Dick glared at Veronica. It had to be her fault. Logan just wasn't any fun when she was around.

No, we can stay." She looked down at her hands, still holding the cell phone in her lap. "My dad doesn't want us to ruin our trip. He can handle it; we wouldn't be able to help much anyway." I would, she thought. I could help. "He said he'd call if anything... you know, changes. If they hear anything."

Veronica tried, for the most part, to ignore Dick. Because suddenly she felt like she was on the verge of tears. My brother is missing. She took a deep breath and tried to calm down.

If there was one thing Dick disliked as much as romantic beach walks, it was girls that looked like they were going to cry.

"Well, I'm going to go find Beav. Make sure that girl doesn't give him the clap or anything." Dick looked to Logan, "Call my cell if you want to party or something."

This had to be the worst road trip ever. Dick was heading back to the bar and picking up a chick. Backing out of the door and shooting his fingers like guns at Logan, he left the beach house. He kicked a rock in the sand. Maybe he would just go borrow Logan's car and joy ride a little. Chicks dug cars, plus then he would totally have a place to bang 'em without cry-y or mopey or whatever dwarf was at the beachhouse now.

After Dick backed out the door, Veronica rested her forehead against Logan's shoulder. "Oh my god, Logan. Duncan's missing." She looked up at him then, her eyes bright from trying not to cry. "He really didn't say anything to you?"

"Yeah, sure. Will do, man." He returned the finger guns to Dick as he watched him leave, a little annoyed at Dick.

He turned to look at Veronica. "I'm sure he's fine," he said softly. His heart wrenched as she looked at him with tears in her eyes. "He didn't say anything. I swear. But he's always acting a little funny lately." That she surely knew herself. It had been pretty evident lately. "I'm sure there's something we can do." And by 'we', he really meant her. He was forever useless. He rubbed his hand on her back. She didn't usually allow herself to become so vulnerable in front of him.
