Wherever You Will Go

Max sat in her favorite thinking spot, on the top of the space needle. She liked it because it was quiet and secluded; she could get away from things up here. Except this time the troubles seemed to follow. Her thoughts were filled with one thing: Logan.

So lately, been wondering
Who will be there to take my place
When I'm gone you'll need love to light the shadows on your face

Her recent incarceration at Manticore had made her realize one thing. She loved Logan very much, but what good would telling him do now? None whatsoever. It would just make things more painful. Logan's life depended on Max keeping her distance, and that is exactly what she planned to do. She just hoped that Logan could take care of himself without her there.

If a great wave shall fall and fall upon us all
Then between the sand and stone
Could you make it on your own?

I'll go see him, Max thought to herself. I'll just look at him from the window. No harm in that. I'll just check to see if he's okay.

If I could, then I would
I'll go wherever you will go
Way up high, or down low, I'll go wherever you will go

Max stood there at Logan's open bedroom window, watching him sleep. He looked so peaceful.
Max remembered the time Logan had tried to take his own life. If she hadn't been there..... Max shook her head to clear it of the thought.
"I would rather die then have anything happen to you," she whispered silently.

And maybe, I'll find out
A way to make it back someday
To watch you, to guide you, through the darkest of your days

"Logan, I promise I will track down every egg-head that made it out of Manticore alive, and find a cure for this. We've survived too much not to be together now."

If a great wave shall fall and fall upon us all
Then I hope there's someone out there who can bring me back to you

Max turned to leave, looking back at Logan one last time......

If I could, then I would
I'll go wherever you will go
Way up high, or down low, I'll go wherever you will go

As Max sped down the street on her Ninja, she let out as sarcastic laugh. Here she was again, running away. Except this time she wasn't fleeing Lydecker or Manticore. She was running from the one person that seemed to give her life meaning.

Run away with my heart
Run away with my hope
Run away with my love

Logan was awakened by the sound of a motorcycle roaring to life.
"Max?" he called.
Logan sat up in bed and put his glasses on. He looked out the window, just in time to see a petite woman speed away on a small black bike.

I know now, just quite how
My life and love might still go on
In your heart, in your mind, I'll stay with you for all time

"I'll wait for you Max," Logan promised. "I'll wait for you as long as it takes. Just come back to me. I'll be here."
And then, almost as an after thought, "I love you."

If I could, then I would
I'll go wherever you will go
Way up high, or down low, I'll go wherever you will go

The End

*loved it, hated it, review and let me know.
