Heaven Can Wait
A/N: I got random inspiration from WTK. Thanks much(:
So, we were flying. And to be honest we had hardly any clue where we were going. Why was this? We were finally listening to Fang's 'let's-go-off-away-from-everyone-on-a-deserted-island' plan.
The questions that were going through my mind at this point:
1. Why am I listening to him?
2. Since when does he call the shots?
3. Why am I listening to him?
4. Where are we even going?
5. Why am I listening to him?
6. What if they find us anyway?
7. WHY AM I LISTENING TO HIM?!
Yeah, I know. Totally dramatic of me, but I wasn't understanding myself very well anymore.
I mean, ever since Mr. Chu kidnapped my mom and everything I've been depending on Fang ten times more than what I used to. But you guys know how that whole book went.
For those of you who have no idea what I'm talking about:
Fang and I kissed a whole heck of a lot, and quite publicly.
That's about it I guess. Anyway, it still didn't make me feel any better that I couldn't bare my emotions by myself anymore. I. Was. Always. Running. To. Fang. How different is that? So different that I had to stress it by giving each word it's own sentence.
I know, it's really that bad.
"MAX, HUGE ISLAND COMING UP." Fang was leading the expedition, and I was flanking him. Not the other way around like it should be.
" 'Kay." Okay, okay. I know I could at least pretend to be enthusiastic but why would I? I feel very weird and awkward and I don't know that what we're doing is right and yeah. I'm whining. I'm really, really sorry. Please forget that ever happened.
We were on that island that Fang pointed out like half-an-hour ago. It wasn't so bad. I wasn't feeling all claustrophobic. I actually felt pretty care-free. But I'm pretty sure that that's from my lack of interest.
I know exactly what you're thinking, "HOW CAN YOU HAVE A LACK OF INTEREST ON A BEAUTIFUL ISLAND?!?!?"
I'll tell you three reasons:
1. I'm Maximum Ride.
2. I'm Maximum Ride.
3. I'm Maximum Ride.
Anyway, I'm sure you're dying to know what it looks like. It has lots of colors, so many colors that I couldn't even name all of them for you. There are all kinds of exotic birds and such. And uhm, there's sand and no people. ISN'T THAT GREAT.
Basically, no one could track us here and I was very happy about that.
Fang came up to me, and he looked so happy to be here, like all his dreams were coming true.
Except, you couldn't really tell unless you were me and you knew him like the back of your hand.
"Think we should build a hut or something?"
"I guess it couldn't hurt."
I know that I was making Fang extremely aggravated because of my lack of interest, and I hate that I was doing that to him, but what would you do if you were me in this situation?
Okay, that was a bad question. Forget it.
Fang looked at me with this hurt expression, "Max, what's wrong?"
The flock was asleep. Well, Total, Angel, Gazzy, Nudge, and Iggy were asleep. Fang and I? We were awake, eyes wide and waiting. Waiting for what you ask? For the other to speak.
"Max, look at me. What's been up with you?"
It shocked me more that Fang decided to speak first than anything else ever had. "I don't know what to do anymore."
With that statement out Fang looked at me really sympathetically, which I hated, because I didn't like being all weak, and I especially didn't like admitting to someone that I felt weak. It's probably the worst thing that could ever happen in your life, so whatever you do, do not tell any that you're weak.
"I'm sorry, Max. I know you feel like I've taken your place, but I haven't. Who got the flock to sleep? You. Who got them to work on the hut? You. Who got them to follow me to this island? You did, Maximum Ride." He smiled, "You're the leader, Max."
He came over to me, got me to lay down, and cuddled next to me. I have to admit, nothing in life could ever beat this. Not kissing Fang. Not holding hands with Fang. Not even talking to Fang. It wouldn't hurt to be stuck in this moment forever.
It was really early, much to early for me to be waking the flock up, so I decided to wake Fang up instead. Instead of just waking him up I thought about how I was going to. Shake him awake? Push him? Kiss him? Mm, I was thinking about the shake, then I suddenly kissed him, without even meaning to.
"Good morning, Max." Fang was smiling a huge smile. Like he had just beaten me to the punch.
"Morning?" I was really confused and he could tell, but all he did was smile and I just didn't understand why.
SO?!?!?!? I thought it was pretty dandy if I do say so myself. R&R.
