In all honesty, when I moved in with Iggy for my junior year I thought I was more than skeptical.
Iggy was cool, but I would miss New York. I was a city kid, not really used to the small town mumbo jumbo.
But when I got there my opinion changed pretty fast. That might not have to do so much with the city though…
Man she was something. I usually didn't pay much attention to girls, but she caught my eye right away.
I spotted her as we drove in, striding over to her locker, a certain lively twinkle to her eye.
When Iggy introduced us I got to liking her even more, she was funny, independent, and admittedly really hot.
Alright, I know, I'm supposed to be the quiet dark mysterious one right? Chill, I'm not going all soft. Believe it or not, I have actual emotions.
And when that jerk Dylan started bothering her, my blood boiled. What right did this twat have to talk to her, try to touch her, like that?
It felt fantastic to use my scary emo boy powers to my advantage. Oh god. Scary emo boy powers. What did I just think?
I'm not emo. Don't listen to that part. In fact can we cut that?
Anyway, after Dylan left I could tell Max was pretty shaken up. However hard she tried to cover it up. Whatever had been going on between them must have been bad, just the thought made me mad all over again.
When she asked me about New York I almost wanted to just spill. Tell her everything, like my favorite Chinese place by the apartment, or the music store down the street where I went every day after school. Anything and everything.
Whooahhh, back up. I was FANG. Babbling about my past was not my style. What's gotten into me lately?
But now that I thought about it, only one person had really ever made me feel like this.
My first girlfriend, we had broken right before Iggy had flown out.
I was never really a talker, a really emotional person, but Maya kind of just crashed through the barrier.
She made me feel so much different around her, happier, more whole in general.
I guess that's why it hurt so much when I caught her with another guy. I had never really invested into many other people.
I just felt so empty again. But worse than before, because now it had a reason.
Ever since then had I ever even looked at a girl, let alone had feelings for one.
Not worth the heartbreak.
But after only two freaking days, Max already had my attention.
That night at Iggy's when she was lying on my lap, cuddled up and drowsy I was losing it internally.
It went like this:
I'll kill Iggy. He knows. He can see it.
Oh god I think she's falling asleep.
*yawn* oh no I think I'm falling asleep. Oh shit…zzzzzz
What's that clicking noise?
Mmmm Max is really warm. I think I'll stay here for a bit.
So when Iggy said he had plans the two days later, I went over to Maxes to hang out.
"We can play Skyrim, Portal, whatever. I have quite a few games. Hanging out with Iggy most of your life takes its toll."
It just got better and better with her. Really.
"So Fang" Max said "Milk or Chocolate Milk"
She smiled proudly and busted out the Hershey syrup.
"Good choice, there is hope for you yet"
I smiled back.
While she got together the cookies and milk I felt the vibration of my cell phone in my pocket.
The number was unknown, but an NYC area code.
"Hello?" I answered.
I was still.
"Maya? Where did you get this number?"
I noticed the slowing of Maxes actions in the kitchen.
"From a…friend. How are you? We haven't talked in months" she said
"Maya what do you want" I tried to keep the hurt out of my voice.
"Fang. I've made a huge mistake" Maya tried, but I wasn't buying it.
"Maya we've been over this. Besides I'm not even in New York. I've moved in with my cousin for the year. Just leave me alone"
"Wait! I'm sorry Fang! Please!" Maya's tone sounded so sincere it was all I could not to accept her pleads.
"Maya" I said coldly "I'm done with you. I've already told you, and I won't again. But don't worry. You won't have any problem getting another boyfriend though right? You seem to be overflowing with choices"
With that I hung up.
Max looked to me with sympathy. Not pity. But sympathy, the understanding look of one that had felt the pain before.
"Exes. You've already met mine. Honestly I don't know why I even tried."
She took the words right out of my mouth.
"Come on; let's go up to my room." Max said, sensing I wasn't in the mood for reply's
We played video games for hours and with Maxes taunts and yelling at the game, including me, I was feeling better sooner than I would have.
"That's it! I've had it with this game!" she yelled, turning the console off.
She put away our controller and rubbed her eyes.
"That wore me out" I said, sitting on her bed nibbling on a cookie
Max yawned "Me too"
She crawled up to my other side on her bed and picked up her glass of chocolate milk.
"So. You wanna talk about it?" she asked
Obviously she meant Maya.
"Just bad history. She cheated, we broke up." I said quickly, trying to avoid going into details. I hated talking about her.
She waited a few moments before talking again.
"Freshman year Dylan and I went out. We were a great couple, but then he just started getting to…close. I mean in my personal bubble close. He tried to take advantage of me because he was a year older and I just wasn't having it" she suddenly seemed embarrassed "Sorry. You probably don't want to hear that."
"No, no, it's fine. You can't keep all that bottled in, that jerk deserves to get his ass kicked"
Max smiled weakly and sat up straighter, pulling a pillow onto her lap so hug.
"Iggy took care of that" Max's voice seemed to get prouder as she spoke of it "Dylan had a black eye and bruises everywhere. Pretty good considering he was on the football team and a junior"
"Was?" I asked
Max laughed softly
"His team kicked him off after they heard he'd gotten his ass handed to him by a freshman"
"You're lucky you've got people watching out for you" I said, looking her in the eye
"Yeah" she said quietly "I'm pretty lucky"
Maxes eyes seemed to take on a certain gleam to them. A happy knowing gleam that got made my heart race.
Suddenly the door crashed open, causing Max and me to jump.
"MAX!" two kids, twins, blonde, fair with blue eyes and probably about 13 came running into the room and surrounded Max
"Gazzy, Angel, what are you doing here?" she asked
"We just came from the park" the girl, Angel breathed
"And you'll never guess what we saw" Gazzy finished
"Uh what?" she played along
"Iggy" Angel grinned
"And Ella" Gazzy added
"Yeahhh" Said Max
"Just look" Angel handed her a small camera phone
"Oh. My. God. Iggy is getting a major talking to when he gets home" Max growled
I would be pretty pissed to if my best friend was making out with my little sister up against a park tree too.
AN: I TOLD YOU ALL! Didn't I say I would add Gazzy? Rig up the Fax fluff? EGGY? Oh hell ya I keep all the promises. I hope Fang's not too OOC… I tried D: I really did! So give me feedback, I want to knoowwww.
Don't get used to Fangles POV though. Cause' I'm going back to Max next chappy. It was fun writing his thoughts on Max but it was just experimental. And Max has won I'm afraid, in opinion I'm just better at writing with her POV.
I should also inform you that sometimes, when I write, I cut parts out of the story. Sometimes if I still like them, but don't use them, I'll keep them in one place and I plan on releasing it after I finish the story! (Which wont' be for a while, I assure you) SOOO I just wanted to inform you guys there is indeed something to look forward to later, cause I've already started gathering it together!
And I hope you all know if was because of your flood of love that I updated so soon. YOU ARE TO BLAMMEEEEE!
