Thursday morning rolled around and Liz was feeling so sick she could barely get out of bed without feeling nauseous. She was worried that Max would think something happened to her if she didn't go to school, so she got up, took a shower, got ready for school, and hopped on the school bus. When she got to school Max met her at the door. She basically collapsed into his arms. She was so sick and wanted to go home. Max carried her to his car, held her hand the whole way to her house, carried her to her bed, and tucked her in.
"Liz? Are you ok for me to head back to school?"
"Max? Would you please stay? Normally I wouldn't ask but the only reason I came to school today was to see you and I don't think that tactic was very well thought out because I am feeling so sick but really want you to stay with me. I know that we had our date just last night but I missed you all night last night!"
"Liz, stop talking ok. I'll stay here. As unmanly as it is, I missed you so much last night too. I wanted to see you this morning but I wouldn't like to see you sick. I like seeing you healthy and happy, not sick and depressed."
"I'm sorry. I shouldn't have come to school but I wanted to see you today so badly. I figured you would come looking for me if I didn't show up to school."
"It's ok. I understand."
With that he told her to get some rest and lay next to her. His hand draped over her side and held her close to him. They drifted off to sleep together, until Liz's father showed up.
"Max? What's going on?"
"Sir, Liz wasn't feeling well and I drove her home. I told her that I was going to go back to school but she asked me to stay. I swear sir nothing happened."
"I trust you Max. I know you wouldn't do anything to hurt Liz but I am not quite sure that I approve of you sleeping in her bead together."
"I understand sir. Would you like me to leave?"
"No she might wake up and I don't want her thinking I ruined things."
"It's ok sir. Just I won't break that rule."
Three hours later Liz woke up from her rest and Max told her that he had to go home. His parents were expecting him for dinner. She told him that it was okay and that she was feeling better and would see her tomorrow.
