A/N. Random idea that went into my head
One year, seven months and eight days since he left and now he was standing in front of me in the pouring rain; asking for me to take him back. I looked into his eyes, eyes that I once loved and trusted but all I felt now was hurt, anger and sadness but I would not cry. I'd wasted enough tears on him.
"Max, please" he begged me. Please what? Take him back? Forgive him? Forget all the pain he's caused me? Did he know that I cried for weeks when he left? Did he know it took seeing the Flock fall apart to get me functioning again? Did he know I had to forbid the Flock from saying his name just so I wouldn't have another breakdown? Of course not; he wasn't there and yet here he was asking me to take him back.
"Max, say something" he pleaded with me.
"What do you want me to say, Fang?" I asked him in a broken voice.
"The truth" he replied and looked at me with sorrowful eyes "Look Max, I'm sorry. I really am"
That really got me mad. Did he think all it took was an 'I'm sorry' to make me run into his arms again?
"You're sorry? Everyone's sorry. I'm sorry I ever trusted you. I'm sorry it took so long to get over you. I'm sorry I wasted my time and emotions on you. And you want the truth? The truth is I hate you. Did you know that? What did I ever do to you to deserve what you did to me? Was I ever anything to you? At all? Because suddenly I'm not so sure. I loved you Fang; I loved you with everything I had. I mean, you knew why I kept my guard up but you broke my defenses anyway. You knew about my trouble on trusting people but you decided to let yourself in. You didn't care that when you left you broke my heart, you never cared did you? And now I never let my guard down, not for anyone and especially not for you! You were gone for 1 year, 7 months and 8 days, sorry doesn't cut it" I yelled at the top of my lungs. Tears were pouring down my cheeks and I hoped the rain covered them up.
He was speechless but I could tell he was crying too.
"Max, I love you" he finally said.
"No, you don't. If you did you wouldn't have left" I hissed.
I snapped out my wings and flew away at lightning speed. I got the revenge I'd always dreamed of getting, telling him off, breaking his heart. I did it. It was a great feeling, right? I almost convinced myself but the truth was I felt worse than ever. I finally landed in a cave and broke down in tears because that's how pathetic I am now and it's all his fault.
