Hello everyone! This fanfic is a spin-off from the WOWP episode "Three Maxes and a Little Lady." I decided to play around with the character of Maxine (keep in mind she's played by the adorable Bailee Madison) and tried to incorporate her into a Jalex story. Regardless of the plot line of the real WOWP, keep an open mind as you read this and let me know if you'd like to see more!
Maxine wasn't your average ten year old girl.
She had quite the personality. She was very outgoing, but she always took the precaution to think about her actions. However, her actions would often get into trouble and she was very stubborn. She was also quite smart for her age- she had a quick mind and was good at thinking of ideas (even if they were really crazy ones).
Her personality was fascinating to many, but to be honest, Maxine was one of the cutest little girls around. She had beautiful dark brown locks that flowed to her shoulder and encircled her petite face. She had both parent's facial features, but she was one lucky girl to have her mother's eyes. Her eyes were chocolate brown and sparkled along with her personality. She was beautiful.
Maxine treasured her friends and hobbies, but most of all, she loved magic. Yes, she was a wizard in training- thanks to her mom's side of the family. Her mother's side was very magically savvy, but her father gave her lessons anyways. Apparently he was also aware of the wizard world, but wasn't a wizard himself- something Maxine always pondered about during her free time. How could her father not have powers and still know about magic? She had to ask her parents about that issue one day…
Magic was the center of her world, but she didn't dare forget about her family. She cherished her family- even if they weren't exactly a "family." Her parents divorced when she was a toddler. She grew up living with her mother during the week and her father during the weekends. Maxine loved her parents and didn't really mind their divorce- she just wanted to know why. And they wouldn't tell her…they just told her that "they didn't have feelings for each other anymore." So cliché. But whatever, she had her Uncle Max too. He was truly the best uncle ever. No joke.
"Maxine, come on! We're going to be late and you know how worried your father gets when we're late!"
Maxine sighed and jumped off her bed, running out of her childhood bedroom to head downstairs. She loved being with her mother because it mean she was really at home. Her father let her mother keep the house they bought together as a couple. Maxine rushed into the kitchen and opened a package of cookies.
Her mother heard the sound of the package unwrapping and yelled, "Maxine! You can only have one…now hurry up!"
Maxine complained, "Aww, but mom…I wanted two."
"Fine! But bring me one too!" Her mother gave in, not wanting to fight her when they were already late.
Maxine smiled- her mom was awesome. She truly cared for her and wasn't afraid to act like a kid again. She was really laidback- jamming out to both their favorite songs in the car and not hesitating to take Maxine out. Maybe her strong connecting to her mother just came from the fact that she was with her for the majority amount of time. Maxine loved her father too, but she just felt closer to her mom.
The engine turned off and her mother sighed, "Well, Maxine….I'll see you in a couple of days. Be good, okay?"
Maxine's eye sparkled, "You know it, Mom." She gave her mother a hug before walking up the steps leading to her father's condo.
Her father opened the door with a relieved look, "Oh good…you're here."
Maxine laughed, "Daddy, you don't need to worry every time I'm a few minutes late."
He hugged her gently and defended himself, "I know, but anything could happen…"
Another lady appeared in the doorway right beside her father. "Oh, sweetie, you're here! So soon?"
Maxine sighed…it was her father's girlfriend- Juliet. She wasn't so bad, but she got an ugly feeling from her. She treated her just fine whenever her father was around, but whenever they were alone by themselves, she barely spoke to her. Maxine felt like a great burden to her- and her relationship with her Dad. But who cared? She was Daddy's favorite girl.
Out of politeness, Maxine replied, "Hi…uhh…Juliet."
"I made yummy cookies!" Juliet exclaimed.
Maxine smiled sweetly and refused, "Oh, no thank you…Mom and I just bought our favorite cookies from the store." Who said she was supposed to love Juliet?
Justin sighed and encouraged, "Maxine, why don't you come in?"
"Okay…" Maxine turned around and waved, "Bye, Mom!"
Her mother waved back, before staring straight at her father. They smiled…with expressions that almost looked like they just wanted to talk.
Even if Maxine was a unique little girl, she was similar to any other divorced couple's child. She always had the hope and desire that her parents would someday be together again. She couldn't help but smile as she caught the few glances her parents gave each other every time she switched homes. Her father would smile and her mother would too- it truly made Maxine happy.
Right now, she didn't know exactly why her parents split. In her eyes, they were perfect for each other. All she knew was something happened when she was little and they didn't like to talk about it with her. But finding out their secret was at the top of her to do list- it couldn't be that bad, right?
She was a devious child, a trait she received from her mother, and knew she would eventually figure it out.
Well folks, meet Maxine- daughter of Justin and Alex Russo.
Well…what do you think? I really liked coming up with this idea because it might have a similar feel to a more family centered fic (kind of like Switched Realities/Hopeless Magic) with plenty of Jalex- and Maxine. Leave your thoughts in a review or feel free to message me!
