Guys, this is my first story and yeah it's a little short, but in the future chapters, it will be longer.

Max's two best buddies hanging around an abandoned building drinking soda.

"What do you mean I have to lose fat?" P.J. said to Bobby holding his stomach.

"Dude, what I mean is that if you stay fat like this, you will be the slowest guy ever man." Bobby said, taking a sip of his favorite drink, Tiger's Blood.

"Well, being fat has it's good effects ya know." PJ protested. "Like, if you and me were lost in a desert or something, I would survive longer because I will be feeding off the fat on my body." He explained

Bobby sighed and shrugged. "Okay, whatever you say bro."

Max was just taking a stroll, he was actually a little depressed for about 6 months now. His ex-GF, Mona, dumped him for another guy. He broke up with his other ex because things didn't work out quite well. He then ran into Bobby and PJ.

"Maxie! Wassup' bra? Long time no see!" said Bobby as he nodded to Max.

"So what's going on?" Max asked them.

"Well, me and Bobby are having a disagreement on something." Said PJ

Max shook his head and rolled his eyes. "I wonder why I am not surprised. So what hell was it this time?" he asked them.

"Well, Bobby keeps saying that being fat isn't very good in some cases-"

"It's true!" Bobby interrupted.

"-and I say that it has its good effects, like you can survive without food for longer periods of time." PJ continued.

Max just stood there, shocked on why he just had to listen to stupid things like this. "Yeah….you two are gonna have to figure this out on your own. Anyways, I gotta go to work, see ya." Max then ran off to his job, he worked as an instructor for Skatebording.

It was about 8PM when Max got in his car and started heading for home. It was just too quiet so he turned on the radio and switched it to his favorite Rock Star, Powerline. At the moment, the song Eye to Eye was playing.

Max then started to sing. " I got myself a notion. One I know that'll understand- " He then stopped and noticed a girl running from a guy. The guy then caught up to the girl and grabbed her by the arm.

"Please, no, no, let me go!" She said struggling, she then stomped on the guys foot which loosened his grip and she ran, only to get grabbed by the guy again.

"Alright I've seen enough!" Max said, close to a hiss and then he got out of his car. "Let her go right now!" he said to the guy in a dangerous tone.

The guy snickered and looked at Max. "Or what? Your gonna cry?" he joked and laugh.

"I wouldn't count on it." Max said. Then he grabbed the guy and punched his several times in the face until the guy ran off. Max then took off his blood stained gloves. He almost forgot about the girl and looked at her. "Are you okay?" he said to her….he then Noticed that she looked really familiar.

The girl looked up at Max and grinned. "I am now, thanks to you, I thought I was done for there…." She then looked closer at Max.

After a few seconds Max noticed who the red-haired girl was. "ROXANNE?"

"MAX!" she said and they both hugged each other tightly.

"It's nice to see you! What are you doing here, I thought you moved to L.A.!" Max said amazed, she still looked the same as he last saw her.

"Well, it turns out my family didn't really like LA, it was too crowded so we moved back here 2 years later." She explained with a smile on her face.

"Well, I'm just glad to see you again." He then looked around and he was in the middle of an alley and shivered. "You need a ride home?" he offered her.

Roxanne smiled and replied to him. "Okay sure, I'm not taking my chances with walking." She said and hopped into Max's car.

Max then dropped off Roxanne at her house. "This is where you live? That's just a few blocks from my house. Mabye you can come by and visit me some time." He offered her.

"Hmm, okay, I'll come by soon, 'night Max." Roxanne said and then went inside her house.

"Hmm….yeah, I should get going too." Max said to himself and drove off.
