Bold bold bold! I'm bored okay it's 7 AM and I'm tired and cold and bored.

Disclaimer: I don't own Maximum Ride or Skype or any of the stores mentioned

MaxPOV

I slowly backed up the stairs and into my room again and pulled out my computer. Fang sat down next to me as I logged into Skype. I instantly got a group call invite from Nudge and I accepted it and I leaned back from my computer when everyone screamed for no apparent reason.

"YAY MAX YOU'RE HERE!" Nudge squealed into her mic.

"So is Fang" I mentioned pointing across my body; Fang leaned in but barely made it in the shot so he came up and sat behind me putting his chin on my shoulder.

"Is Ella?" I saw Angel pop up from probably doing homework

"No, she's with my grandparents somewhere, probably at Wal-Mart" I answered

"Well are you gonna be able to Skype tomorrow?" Iggy spoke up

"Umm, tomorrow's the what?"

"21st" Gazzy's voice came from behind Angel somewhere

"Oh, then no. We are going to Fort Wayne, Indiana to go Christmas shopping"

"Damn" Everyone said at the same time

"How the fuck did you do that?"

"I don't know" Nudge replied

I heard my mom yell up the stairs for me and Fang.

"Got to go I might be able to text tomorrow but I know Ella will be able to shop and text at the same time, bye!" I heard a chorus of byes and then I exited out of the call and walked downstairs.

"We are talking about who is going shopping with who. So Fang since you're the oldest teenager who are you going to shop with?" my grandma asked when we walked into the living room

"Max" Fang put his arm around me and we were dismissed. It was going to be hard shopping for someone while they were with you.

We headed back upstairs and I realized it was 10:30 and we had to get up a 5 to get a full day in of Christmas shopping. I grabbed my pajamas and headed towards the downstairs bathroom, since the upstairs bathroom is literally like 4 by 4 square. It only has a toilet and a sink and basically all the bathroom space is taken up. I shut the bathroom door and locked it, I pulled my clothes off and threw on my blue 'I Hate Mondays' t-shirt and my plaid pants. I grabbed my clothes and headed back upstairs.

I knocked on the door lightly and opened it a crack.

"You decent?"

"Yes, I'm not naked" I opened the door farther to see him laying on the bed with his bare chest sticking out from the covers since he only had them pulled them to his waist.

I closed the door and crawled into the bed and wrapped my arm over his chest. He flicked the lamp off and kissed me on the forehead and he pulled the blanket over his chest and yawned before falling asleep.

Next Morning like 5 AM

"MAX! FANG! GET YOUR BUTT'S OUT OF BED!" I woke up to someone *cough* Mackenzi *cough* bursting into the room and screaming at us. I groaned and buried my head into Fang side.

Ella came into the room and grabbed my hands and pulled me out of the bed over Fang who groaned when an unexpected 135 pound girl –yes I'm under weight for an 18 year old girl who is 5' 11"– was pulled over the top of him. She handed me clothes and pushed me to the bathroom downstairs.

I quickly showered and pulled on and black tank top with a skull and a cross on it, with black ripped skinny jeans, I laced up my boots and pulled my black leather jacket on. I put on my open weave beret and walked back upstairs to grab my phone. I opened the door and saw Fang pulling his shirt on over his head. I grabbed my phone off the night stand and started walking out of the room.

Fang grabbed my hand and I spun around to look at him. He kissed me and I smiled up at him then walked out of the room.

On the 1 Hour Drive to Fort Wayne Mall (Glenbrook Square Mall)

Fang and I were listening to music when I was handed a note.

"Here's a list of what everyone would like, but you can get them anything that's not what you were assigned to get." My grandma said looking in the rear-view mirror at me; I nodded and went back to the music playing.

Lights by Ellie Goulding

I had a way then losing it all on my own
I had a heart then but the queen has been overthrown
And I'm not sleeping now, the dark is too hard to beat
And I'm not keeping now, the strength I need to push me

You show the lights that stop me turn to stone
You shine it when I'm alone
And so I tell myself that I'll be strong
And dreaming when they're gone

'Cause they're calling, calling, calling me home
Calling, calling, calling home
You show the lights that stop me turn to stone
You shine it when I'm alone
Home

Noises, I play within my head
Touch my own skin and hope that I'm still breathing
And I think back to when my brother and my sister slept
In an unlocked place the only time I feel safe

You show the lights that stop me turn to stone
You shine it when I'm alone
And so I tell myself that I'll be strong
And dreaming when they're gone

'Cause they're calling, calling, calling me home
Calling, calling, calling home
You show the lights that stop me turn to stone
You shine it when I'm alone
Home

Lights, lights, lights, lights
Lights, lights, lights, lights
(Home, home)
Lights, lights, lights, lights
Lights, lights

You show the lights that stop me turn to stone
You shine it when I'm alone
And so I tell myself that I'll be strong
And dreaming when they're gone

'Cause they're calling, calling, calling me home
Calling, calling, calling home
You show the lights that stop me turn to stone
You shine it when I'm alone
Home

(Home, home )
Lights, lights, lights, lights
Lights, lights, lights, lights
(Home, home)
Lights, lights, lights, lights
Lights, lights, lights, lights

I looked up as we pulled into the mall's parking lot and had to wait for everyone to get out of the van while I unbuckled and got out of my seat. I hopped out of the van and waited for Fang to get out.

"Ok everyone knows where to go correct?" My mom asked me all nodded and she continued. "Meet in the food court at, let's see its 7 now so let's meet in the food court by the marry-go-around at noon." We all nodded again and we all went inside with our shopping partners.

I pulled out the list and looked at where we came in. Barnes and Noble. I pulled Fang towards the side of B&N so we could look around the mall for the stores that were listed.

I started checking off places I needed to go thankfully Mom had given me a credit card since most of these are like over 50 bucks.

I needed to go to:

American Eagle

Sears

Build-a-Bear

Payless

We passed Starbucks and I saw American Eagle and I headed inside and got the gift card and came back out to meet Fang who had a bag in hand already. I walked over to Build-a-Bear and bought a Panda bear skin and an outfit and left the store seeing Fang with another bag. We were over by JC Penny's already and had to go back towards Barns and Noble to get to Sears. We stopped at stores along the way buying gifts for people and we soon were at Sears.

I made Fang push a cart full of stuff to the counter after about an hour of searching for things. I had found them all without help. I paid for everything and we borrowed the cart and set all of our other stuff inside the cart. I somehow managed to make it so Fang didn't know I threw a leather jacket his size in the cart he was pushing around the store but I had covered it with my coat until I put the bender, blow dryer, and nail gun boxes in the cart.

We pushed the cart to the closest elevator and went down to the food court level and found Payless and got Karen her running shoes. We sat down at a table and I pulled out my phone to look at the time.

"11:30" I sighed

"Well we are done half an hour early"

"Yup" I quickly texted my Grandma to see where she was so we could put the stuff in the van. "Hey let's go get my Grandpa's car keys so we can put this stuff in the van."

"Okay" Fang stood up and we headed back to the elevator and I found my Grandma and Grandpa in Claire's. Grandpa looking as bored as ever.

"Can I have your keys?" I asked him

"Sure" He handed them to me and I walked out and back towards Barnes and Noble.

We walked through Barnes and Noble and out to the van and we started loading the trunk.

I shivered and closed the tailgate and we headed back into the mall. We took the escalator down to the food court and I saw Mom and Ella arms full of bags. Fang handed her the cart and they put all the bags in and we waited for everyone to be done.

Soon it was noon and we had 3 carts full of bags and everyone was eating lunch. Fang and I had finished our food first so we went and took the carts to the van and made everything fit in the trunk. (The van is an Astro van so it has a large trunk) I closed the tailgate again and Fang put all three carts together and put them in the cart return area place. I followed Fang back inside and we saw our group walking towards us so we turned back around and walked back to the van.

Later That Day At About 8 PM

Fang and I were in our room wrapping presents on the floor hiding behind the side of the bed. I had wrapped Fang's gift first and wrote his name on it then started a pile. I wrapped the rest of the gifts and had Fang help me carry them down stairs and put them underneath the tree

After everything was done I pulled out my computer and opened my email to quickly check it and then opened Skype. I got about 50 billion messages instantly and a call invite. I accepted it and the 6 of us talked until midnight.

I heard a knock on the door and Mom peeked her head in.

"Don't stay up too late; actually get ready for bed." I nodded and said bye to the group and I pulled my pajamas out of my bag and changed in the 4 by 4 square bathroom.

It was difficult since pulling my bottoms on I hit my head on the door then about fell and hit my head on the sink. I pulled the shirt on and walked into the room since every time there a crash in the bathroom Fang came out and knocked on the door t make sure I was okay. I flopped onto the bed and rolled over to Fang and closed my eyes.

After being awake til about 5 in the morning I gave up and grabbed Fang's iPod and started listening to slow songs to help me get to sleep.

Hurt by Christina Aguilera

Seems like it was yesterday when I saw your face
You told me how proud you were, but I walked away
If only I knew what I know today, ooh, ooh

I would hold you in my arms, I would take the pain away
Thank you for all you've done, forgive all your mistakes
There's nothing I wouldn't do to hear your voice again
Sometimes I wanna call you but I know you won't be there

Oh, I'm sorry for blaming you
For everything I just couldn't do
And I've hurt myself by hurting you

Some days I feel broke inside but I won't admit
Sometimes I just wanna hide 'cause it's you I miss
And it's so hard to say goodbye when it comes to this, ooh

Would you tell me I was wrong? Would you help me understand?
Are you looking down upon me? Are you proud of who I am?
There's nothing I wouldn't do to have just one more chance
To look into your eyes and see you looking back

Oh, I'm sorry for blaming you
For everything I just couldn't do
And I've hurt myself, oh

If I had just one more day
I would tell you how much that I've missed you
Since you've been away

Oh, it's dangerous
It's so out of line
To try and turn back time

I'm sorry for blaming you
For everything I just couldn't do
And I've hurt myself
By hurting you

I was passed out after this song.

And Chapter is done!

Fang: You're lazy

Me: I know
