Chapter 4

(Max's POV)

I woke up in the hospital, with my head hurting like a bitch. Actually, right now, pretty much everywhere hurt. But mostly my head.

"Ow." I moaned, grabbing my head.

"Max, thank god, you're awake!" Nudge enveloped me in a hug. I winced.

"Nudge, please don't hug me. It hurts." I groaned.

"Oops. Sorry." Nudge let go of me.

"How bad are your injuries?" Fang asked me with concern.

"Not too bad. The doctor said my left arm is broken, and I just recently got a cast on it. I've also got a badly sprained ankle, so I have to walk on crutches for a while. I also have a massive headache." I replied.

"Are you okay?" Ari asked.

I nodded. "Yeah."

"I must say, Ms. Ride, you and your friends are very lucky. Your friends have no injuries, and your injuries are pretty minor for a crash like the one you were just in. That crash would have killed someone. And it did." The doctor said. He had a heavy British accent.

I liked at him in confusion. "What do you mean?"

"The driver of your band's tour bus died." He replied.

"How does this affect the tour? Surely you can find another tour bus driver." Iggy said.

The doctor shook his head. "No. I've tried, believe me. I've contacted people I know that drive buses; both school buses and tour buses. None of them were available to drive anyone."

"Well, this sucks. I was looking forward to singing in England." Nudge said.

"I think I may be able to help you with that. Some children that have cancer just got out of Chemo Therapy, and they're feeling a bit down in the dumps. Perhaps your tunes will cheer them up." The doctor said.

"Okay. Sure. Where is the Chemo Therapy room?" Iggy asked.

The doctor pointed upstairs. We were downstairs. "First door on your right." He said.

I grabbed my crutches and the band and I headed to the Chemo Therapy room. When we got there, I smiled at the kids.

"Hi guys. We're Another Knockout, and we're going to sing a song for you." I said.

The kids looked at us intently as we performed our song. Fang and I sang Kryptonite.

(A/N: Italics=Max, bold=Fang.)

I took a walk around the world to ease my troubled mind

I left my body lying somewhere in the sands of time

But I watched the world float to the dark side of the moon

I feel there is nothing I can do, yeah

I watched the world float to the dark side of the moon

After all I knew it had to be something to do with you

Ireally don't mind what happens now and then
As long as you'll be my friend at the end

If I go crazy then will you still call me Superman?

If I'm alive and well, will you be there holding my hand?

I'll keep you by my side with my superhuman might

Kryptonite

You call me strong, you call me weak

But still your secrets I will keep
You took for granted all the times
I never let you down

You stumbled in and bumped your head
If not for me then you'd be dead
I picked you up and put you back on solid ground

If I go crazy then will you still call me Superman?

If I'm alive and well, will you be there holding my hand?

I'll keep you by my side with my superhuman might

Kryptonite

If I go crazy then will you still call me Superman?
If I'm alive and well, will you be there holding my hand?
I'll keep you by my side with my superhuman might
Kryptonite, yeahhhhhhhhhh!

If I go crazy then will you still call me Superman?

If I'm alive and well, will you be there holding my hand?

I'll keep you by my side with my superhuman might

Kryptonite

"You're really good." A little girl who said her name was Savannah said. Savannah looked like a brown haired, green eyed version of Angel.

I grinned. "Thanks."

"No problem." Savannah said.

A blonde haired, hazel eyed boy who said his name was Marcus said to me "You're pretty." His cheeks acquired an adorable tinge of red.

Fang ruffled his hair. "Back off my woman. You'll get your own someday."

A nurse came in. "The taxi is here to take you all to the airport."

We said goodbye to the kids.

When we were in the taxi, Ari said to me "you know, even thought we didn't rock the whole world, we sure rocked those kids' worlds."

I nodded. "Yeah. To me, that's just as good as rocking the whole world."
