10 Things I Hate About You

by MissBehaving

Max's POV

I hate the way you talk to me, the way you block the real world out.

This is not Manticore, but that's all you've ever known.

I hate the way you drive your bike, why is it always a race?

I hate it when you stare at me, is something out of place?

I hate the way you're always in my thoughts, lingering in the back of my mind.

I hate you so much it makes me sick, it even makes me rhyme.

I hate it when you're proven right, cause I hate it when I'm wrong.

I hate it when you make me laugh, even worse when you make me cry.

I hate the fact that you're always around, you're the figurative 'belle of the ball'.

But mostly I hate the fact that I can't say this to your face;

Because I don't hate you, not even close, not even a little bit, even any at all.
