Stupid Valentine's Day... Max sighed. It's really only to rub it in that you could be with someone, indstead of alone. But for Max, that wasn't an option. She headed into Crash, looking for OC. She was probably with Diane... Great, another Valentine's Day alone. And then she saw Alec walk in. And to her suprise, there was no dumb bimbo on his arm. He spotted her, smiled, and walked over. "Hey Maxie." Max siginaled to the bartender that she needed a drink and he slid her one, then Alec his scotch. "I don't know why we do this." Max looked at him questioningly. He pointed to their drinks and she nodded. "Feels nice to pretend to be normal sometimes." Alec nodded, accepting her answer. Then Tim McGraw's "It's Your Love" started playing. "Come on Maxie, let's play pretend." He grabbed her hand and half drug her out to the dance floor.

Yea yea

Dancin' in the dark middle of the night

Takin' your heart and holdin' it tight

Emotional touch touchin' my skin

And asking you to do what you've been doin' all over again

Alec took Max's hand in his and pulled her close to him and looked into her eyes, willing her to see the changes he had made, just for her...

Oh it's a beautiful thing don't think I can keep it all in

I just gotta let you know what it is that won't let me go

Max looked up at him and smiled sweetly. She realized then, she loved him...

It's your love

It just does something to me

It sends a shock right through me

I can't get enough

And if you wonder

About the spell I'm under

Oh it's your love

She placed her head on Alec's shoulder and heard him singing along. He pulled her closer to him and didn't notice the other couple's exiting the dance floor, leaving room for only them. How could he? He only had eyes for her.

Better than I was, more than I am

And all of this happened by taking your hand

And who I am now is who I wanted to be

And now that we're together,

I'm stronger than ever

I'm happy and free

"Maxie?" She looked up at him and cocked an eyebrow. "I love you." Max just looked at him. "Are you serious?" He nodded. "As a heartattack."

Oh it's a beautiful thing,

Don't think I can keep it all in

If you asked me why I've changed,

All I gotta do is say your sweet name

They had stopped moving, still wrapped up in each other, staring into each other's eyes.

It's your love

It just does something to me

It sends a shock right through me

I can't get enough

And if you wonder

About the spell I'm under

Oh, it's your love

Baby, Oh oh, oh,

Oh it's a beautiful thing,

Don't think I can keep it all in

I just gotta let you konw what it is that won't let me go

"I love you too Alec."

It's your love

It just does something to me

It sends a shock right through me

I can't get enough

And if you wonder

About the spell I'm under,

Oh it's your love

It's your love, it's your love, it's your love

He kissed her then, and that kiss was filled with love and promises. "How about we get out of here?" She nodded and he grabbed her hand, walking happily out the door...

Finito!
