Heels Over Head - Boys Like Girls (I reckon this song, the lyrics tell the story more than my weird character monologues. Helps if you've heard it before.

I got your runaway smile in my piggybank baby
Gonna cash it right in for a new Mercedes
You were worth the hundred thousand miles

Max was the closest thing to perfect, Fang thought. She wasn't rich or model-like, though her looks told a different story.
She's worth more than she could imagine.

But you couldn't stay awhile
I got your little brown shirt in my bottom drawer baby
And your little white socks in the top drawer
You were always leaving your shit around
And gone without a sound

Fang. He left, didn't know how broken it left her. She found some of his clothes left behind.

Yeah I'm the first to fall and the last to know
Where'd you go?

Fang fell for her. Hard. He didn't want to, but he couldn't help it. He was drawn in by her, by everything.

(Max)
Now I'm heels over head
I'm hangin' upside down
Thinking how you left me for dead
California bound

It was like he didn't care if they lived or died. (A/N this was a quote but I couldn't find it, so make do 'k? Though if anyone knows, please tell me)

(Both)
I got a first class ticket to a night all alone
And a front row seat up right by the phone
Cause you're always on my mind
And I'm running out of time
I've got your hair on my pillow and your smell in my sheets
And it makes me think about you with the sand in your feet
Is it all you thought it'd be?
You mean everything to me

Fang was all Max could think about it. She longed to see him, just for a second. Sometimes she could feel his breath on her neck, like when he snuck up on her.

Max was all Fang could think about. He couldn't help feeling regret. He could still smell the scent of her hair, he imagined her everywhere, always checking if by a tiny chance, Max was there.

But I'm the first to fall and the last to know
And where'd you go?

Now I'm heels over head,
I'm hangin' upside down
Thinking how you left me for dead
California bound
And when you hit the coast
I hope you think of me
And how I'm stuck here with the ghost of what we used to be

He left and she nearly died without him.

You're burnin' bridges baby
Burnin' bridges, making wishes
Yeah you're burnin' bridges baby
Burnin' bridges, making wishes
You're burnin' bridges baby
Burnin' bridges, making wishes
Yeah you're burnin' bridges baby
Burnin' bridges, making wishes

Fang burnt his bridges when he left. Max didn't blame Iggy and Gazzy as much. He could wish and wish that Max would take him back.

You're a chance taker, heartbreaker
Got me wrapped around your finger
Chance taker, heartbreaker
Got me wrapped around your finger

And she would. She would because he was apart of her. She couldn't let him go. Ever.

I got your runaway smile in my piggybank baby
Gonna cash it right in for a new Mercedes
If I drive a hundred thousand miles
Would you let me stay a while?

Now I'm heels over head,
I'm hangin' upside-down
Thinking how you left me for dead
California bound
And when you hit the coast
I hope you think of me
And how I'm stuck here with the ghost of what we used to be

Now I'm heels over head,
I'm hangin' upside-down
Thinking how you left me for dead
California bound
And when you hit the coast
Maybe you'll finally see
And then you'll turn it all around and you'll come back to me


"Fang felt a cold jolt, then dismissed it. Max wasn't dead. He would know, somehow. He would have felt it. The world still felt the same to him; therefore, Max was still in it." –Saving the World and Other Extreme Sports
