Author's Note: Okay… this is Chapter 5… I don't know what else to say, so… let's go with the show!

*Chapter 5: A Promise and a Farewell*

The summer passed by, and the fall came. The Williams had to go back to New Orleans.

"We'll miss you a lot" Monica said, hugging Janet and her daughter.

"We'll miss you too, Mon" (A/N: "Mon" is the diminutive for "Monica"… just in case)

"We'll try to come back soon" Philip said.

"I hope so" Monica said.

"Mae, go and say goodbye to your friends" Janet said, and Mae reached David and Martin.

"Bye, guys" Mae said.

"Bye, Mae" Martin said. Mae looked at him.

"See ya, Martin" she said, and turned to David "I'll miss you a lot, David" she said, hugging him.

"I'll miss you too, Mae" he said.

"I'll write to you, okay?" she said.

"Fine"

"I hope you'll write to me too" Mae said.

"I'll try" David said, and Mae gave him a kiss on the cheek. Then the Williams left.

-------------------------------------------

Martin thought about Mae. All the things he had done to get her attention, and she had just turned him down for… David??

"Well, dad told me that girls can be very complicated" he said "Maybe Mae was one of those" he added, but he knew he was wrong.

-------------------------------------------

Some days later, David was making coffee for Monica, when he heard a voice calling him.

"David!" it was Monica, who had a paper on her hand.

"What is it, Mommy?" he asked.

"This came for you" she answered, giving him the paper.

David went to his room and read the paper. It was a letter.

Dear David:

How's it going in Haddonfield? I hope you're fine. I'm at school now, and it's cool, but let me tell you, Math really sucks! Lol. Well, everything here's fine, my dad is working at the Cybertronics offices here in New Orleans, but maybe we'll move to New Jersey in the spring, so maybe I can go to your house! Isn't that great?

Look, Martin told me that you were a mecha, and I don't care because I like you for who you are, you know? I hope we can be friends. I promise I'll be there if you need me.

Well, my science class is about to start, so I have to go.

A big hug from

Mae

P.S: Write back as soon as you get this! You promised! :)

David finished reading the letter from Mae, and looked at the window. He remembered everything that happened when Mae went to his house… and he smiled. Yes, it had been a very special summer…

The End.

"Touch him… that's creepy"

"He's so real…"

"Mecha-real"
