Author's Note: Hi! This here thingy is the first fic I've done and/or published, so be nice and leave a review. Even if it's a flame, I won't mind. (I'm extremely hyper right now, but if I get flames and I'm in a bad mood, you might just get a little eensy weensy bit mad at me. Fair warning.) Anyways, read on!

Disclaimer: Does it look like anything belongs to me? If it does, let me clarify: Max Ride? Not mine. Simple Plan? Ish not own. Never, Nunca, Nada, Zip.

"Max!" I was startled out of an uneasy nap by Nudge, who was positively beaming. Miracle what a seven-hour plane ride does to some people. I looked up.

"Yeah?" Nudge looked at the T.V in front of her and smiled.

"Isn't it so cool that MTV is even up here? It's like when we were at Anne's but up in the air, you know?" She hopped in her seat and settled down to look at the video that was showing up. Angel looked at us and smiled, then turned to listen intently to the song. Even Total and Ari, our resident Frankenbirdy, were listening in. Hmm...wonder what song it is? I slipped on some headphones and sat back, letting an upbeat rock riff start up.

I thought that I could always count on you

I thought that nothing could come between us two

We said as long as we would stick together

We'd be alright

We'd be okay

But I was stupid and you broke me down

I'll never be the same again...

So thank you for showing me

that best friends cannot be trusted

And thank you for lying to me

Our friendship

the good times we had

You can have 'em back!

A lump caught in my throat as I thought of Fang, my best friend, my right hand man, who was God (or Goddess) knows where. Angel turned to look at me, concerned, but I smiled at her slightly. She gave me a look and turned back to the video. Grudgingly, I looked back too.

I wonder why it always has to hurt

For every lesson that we have to learn

Why does it hurt? More importantly, why do I care?

I won't forget what you did to me

How you showed me things I wish I'd never see

Damn right I won't forget, I thought, unwillingly going back to that day in the cave when Fang...oh God. Not that again!

But I was stupid and you broke me down

I'll never be the same again.

So thank you for showing me

that best friends cannot be trusted

And thank you for lying to me

Your friendship

The good times we had

You can have 'em back!

When the tables turn again

You'll remember me my friend

You'll be wishing I was there for you

I'll be the one you miss the most

but you'll only find my ghost

As time goes by

you wonder why

You're all alone

So thank you for showing me

that best friends cannot be trusted

And thank you for lying to me

Your friendship

The good times we had

You can have 'em back!

So thank you- for lying to me

So thank you- for all the times

you let me down

So thank you- for lying to me

So thank you-your friendship

You can have it back!

The song faded away, and something else started to play. I took the headphones off, feeling my insides churning. Why did you have to leave? I wondered silently. Angel looked up at me, her big, blue eyes staring at me earnestly.

"He didn't want to leave. He wanted you to tell him not to." She murmured quietly. I sighed and shook my head.

"Guess there's nothing we can do now, huh?" I whispered, scratching Total's ear absently. Angel nodded.

"We'll see them soon." She said, and turned to watch whatever video was on.

We better see them soon, or they'll have hell to pay later. I thought grimly, then my gut hurt again. Still wish you were here.

So there it is! Please review. Comments, flames, anything, I'd really appreciate it!

Amaya :)
