What Happened to Happily Ever After






Chapter 1

It was a beautiful Monday morning in Roswell New Mexico. Everyone was just arriving at school, now that Spring Break was officially over. One such person arriving at school was Maxwell Evans, or Hot Love God as most of the girls in the school called him. Max was just ready for school to get back in so he could see his girlfriend, Tess. It had been a hard week; Tess was off in Florida with friends while he went to Vegas with his family.

Max was walking through the school looking for Tess or his friends, whoever came first. He spots Michael and Alex.

“Hey dudes!”

Max and Michael high five each other, “What’s up Maxwell?”

“Nothing much. How about you guys?”

“Nah. Nothing, Maria was gone all week with a friend down in Florida. So how was Vegas? Win anything?”

“Huh? Oh Vegas, was Vegas. Girls, casinos, alcohol, just Vegas, nothing changed since the last time I was there.”

“You pick up any hotties?”

“Michael, no of course not. You know I have a girlfriend and I wouldn’t do that.”

Michael thought, ‘You wouldn’t, but I’d bet big money she would.’

Max waved his hand in Michael’s face, “By the way have you seen Tess anyway?”

“Nope. Nuh-uh. Oh wait, here comes the devil bitch herself....” Michael trailed off as she approached. Alex chuckled at his statement. How could he not, it was true.

He turns around to see her. When she within reach he tried to kisses her, but she pushes him away.

“Gum. Anyone have gum?”

Two of her friends offer he some, “Yeah here Tess.”

She takes it shoving both pieces into her mouth then turns to Max. “Yeah, sorry about that. You know Max, this; this between us just isn’t working anymore. Sorry.” Then she turns and leaves.

Max catches up to her, “Wait Tess. We need to talk.”

So together, they went and sat at a table in the quad.

“Okay. You’re gone for a week, come back with another guy’s name tattooed on your shoulder and want to break up. What happened in Florida, Tess?”

“Are you sure you really want to hear this?”

Max just nods.

“Okay well some friends and I were drinking on the beach, when a guy came over and started talking to me. We went to his hotel room and one thing led to another and....”

Max cut her off. “You slept with him.” It was more of a statement than a question.

“Well.... uh.... um.... Max you don’t understand.”

Max is beyond pissed at this point, “Don't understand!? Tess, what’s there to understand!? You fucked some other guy!”

“Max, I....”

“Save it Tess. I don’t give a damn anymore. I just can’t believe I wasted the past 13 months putting up with you. I’m out of here! The very sight of you makes me sick!

With that said he just walks off.

Tess just sits there, “That went well. Oh well.”

Max finds the guys sitting at another table across the quad and sits down with them, “I can’t believe she did this.”

Alex looks at him, “Max, buddy, we all saw something like this coming, but you.”

Obviously still upset Max replies, “I just never thought she could be so cruel.”

Michael says something, “Max well this is Tess we’re talking about, remember. ‘Bitch’ is her middle name. Not to mention the fact that she’s a major slut. You knew she was screwing other guys behind your back. Why didn’t you break up with her before this blew up in your face?”

“I can do so much better than her.” He casts a glance to them looking for support.

Before they can say anything Kyle comes over and sits with them, “Hey Max. Sorry to hear about Tess. She available now?”

“Not exactly.”

“News does travel fast around here.” Michael says amazed.

“Oh that’s right. The shoulder guy. Her loss.”

Max want to laugh out loud at Kyle’s stupidity, but decides against it.

Kyle looks at Max, “I got a proposition for you Max.”

“And that would be what exactly?”

“A bet. I’m looking for some easy cash and I know you enjoy friendly little bets from time to time. So how about it?”

“Okay what is it?”

“Prom Queen.”

“I’m not following.”

“I pick a girl and you try to turn her into Prom Queen. It’s going to be a bit of a challenge, since Tess or Isabel are both supposed to be shoo-ins.”

Max thinks for a moment before answering, “Okay, I’m in. What are the terms and who’s the girl?”

“Terms later. As for the girl....” He trails off and stands up scanning the quad.

He points to a girl in all black clothing applying black lipstick, “Too easy.”

Then to a girl picking her nose, “Digging for gold?”

Max laughs, “Eww, no thanks.”

Kyle's gaze stops on the victim, Liz Parker. “We have our girl!”

Max can’t see so he stands as well.

“No way dude! Liz Parker! She is such a worm. She never takes her nose out of a book. Besides, I think she hates me, there’s no way she’ll talk to me.”

“Aww. Come on Max. Afraid you’ll lose?”

Alex pipes up, “Max, I don’t think that’s such a good idea. She’s a nice girl, quiet but nice.”

Max looks at Michael who just shrugs.

Max turns his attention back to Kyle, “You know what Kyle? You got yourself a bet.”

They shake hands and sit back down.

Max turns to Michael and Alex and says, “How hard can it be?”

From Chapter 1

“Aww. Come on Max. Afraid you’ll lose?”

Alex pipes up, “Max, I don’t think that’s such a good idea. She’s a nice girl, quiet but nice.”

Max looks at Michael who just shrugs.

Max turns his attention back to Kyle, “You know what Kyle? You got yourself a bet.”

They shake hands and sit back down.

Max turns to Michael and Alex and says, “How hard can it be?”




Chapter 2

“Really guys, it can’t possibly be that hard.”

Kyle chuckles, “Dude, she’s just weird. I say you got your work cut out for you with that one.”

“Maxwell, Alex is right. This really isn’t such a good idea. You’re going to end up hurting her feelings.”

“Since when do you talk about feelings Michael?”

Alex interjects, “Max, I’m not lying, she is a nice girl. I have AP Chem with her. You know, she’s my lab partner and she’s smart and sweet, and if I weren’t so madly in love with your sister, I’d ask her out. I just don’t think....”

Kyle cut him off, “Butt out Alex. Okay Max, the terms are....”

All of a sudden there was a big commotion going on and Alex and Michael couldn’t hear the terms.

Everyone was shouting and making catcalls. The four guys got up to see what’s going on.

It’s Tess and who they can only assume is “Jacob,” making out on the hood of a car. Jacob was openly groping Tess, and it didn’t seem to phase her one bit.

Michael what out and out laughing, “Wow! She really is a slut!”

“Uh-huh,” was all Alex could muster.

Kyle holds out is hand while talking, “Okay, we’ve got the terms and the girl, now you have about 5 months to get to know her make her queen material.”

They shake hands and Kyle adds, “Go try talking to her now.”

Max got up and walked over to Liz’s table where she was reading.

“Liz, mind if I join you?”

She doesn’t even acknowledge his presence. She was too engrossed with her Jane Austen novel to care. He sat down anyway, and Liz stiffens. This doesn’t go unnoticed by Max, ‘Oh my god! Is she scared of me?’

He tries to talk to her again, “You know Liz....”

She quickly grabs her things and leaves.

Max just sits there, dumbfounded. He hears laughter and turns around. Alex, Michael and Kyle are laughing hysterically at him.

Max gets up and returns to their table, “I guess this will be harder than I thought.”

“Max, I’m telling you. She isn’t like the other girls; she isn’t going to take your shit.”

Michael finally finished laughing, “Dude that sucked. She shot you down and she didn’t even say anything.” He started to laugh again.

“Shut up Michael,” Max growled.

“Okay. I’m going to go find Maria for a little trip to the Eraser Room. Later guys.”

With that he leaves to find Maria. He finds her sitting with someone, but can only see his or her back. From the long brown tresses, he guesses that it must be a girl.

Maria looks up and sees him, “Michael, baby.”

“Hey,” He grunts.

Liz turns to her side and sees a tall blond guy.

Maria does introductions, “Liz this is my boyfriend, Michael. Liz, Michael. Michael, Liz.”

Michael knows exactly who she is and wants nothing more than to start laughing again. “Yeah. Nice to meet you.”

“Liz is the friend that went to Florida with me.”

“Really?” Michael replied uninterested.

Maria knows he isn’t listening to her, “Yeah. We went shopping together, tanning, oh and we even had a threesome. It was a blast!”

“Huh?! What did you say?” Michael’s mouth just hung open.

“It was a blast?”

“No, before that.”

“We went shopping?”

“Maria you know what I’m talking about.”

“Threesome?”

He nodded his head.

“So you were actually listening to me”

“You two didn’t really....” Michael trailed off looking between the girls.

Then he began again, “What? Did you two meet some girl and decide to have a threesome?”

Maria looks directly at him and says, “What makes you think the third person was a girl?”

“You cheated on me?!”

“Wait a minute. So if it were a girl, you’d be cool with it, but if it was a guy I was cheating?”

“Damn straight!”

Maria threw her hands up, “Men!”

“Chicks!” Michael retorted.

Liz couldn’t hold in her laughter any longer. The whole display was utterly hilarious.

Michael looked at her, “What’s so funny?”

“There was no threesome. No guy. But we did shop and tan. Everything was completely innocent. We had fun, that’s all.”

“Really?” His gaze shifted to Maria.

“Really.” She pecked his nose.

“So I won’t be seeing you on those “Girls Gone Wild” videos?”

“Well, I don’t know. There was that one night that I couldn’t remember anything that happened.”

His mouth fell open for the second time.

“I’m kidding. I’m kidding. Don’t worry, no videos.”

She leaned in and whispered in his ear.

The second Liz saw the smile on Michael’s face she spoke up, “Okay, eww. I didn’t even hear what you told him and I know what you said. That’s just way, way too much information Ria!”

Maria giggled, “Sorry Lizzie. You always could read me like a book.”

“Yep. And you me.”

“Anyway back to what we were discussing before Michael joined. Max Evans, creep extraordinaire.”

“Yeah,” Liz nodded in agreement.

“So he came up to your table and....” Maria re-capped.

“Nothing really. He said like two words and I got up and came over here. He really does bug me.”

Michael steps in, “He really is a nice guy once you get to know him.”

Liz shakes her head vigorously, “I’d rather not. Thank you.”

“I bet if you’d just talk to him for a while you’d....”

Liz cut him off, “Michael, why are you pushing this?”

“I’m sorry. I just wanted to spend some time with Maria before school. I’m just trying to end your conversation, so I can take Maria away,” he said a matter a factly.

Liz waved her hand off, “Go. Go ahead. Have fun.”

Michael stood up pulling Maria with him, “We will.”

Maria looked back at Liz and shouted, “Well talk later. Okay chica?”

“Alright.”

Liz pulled out her book and began reading again. Her back felt really warm and tingly, so she lifted her head and looked behind her, only to see none other than Max Evans staring at her. She looked into his eyes briefly before looking away. Once again she packed up her things, only to leave Max staring after her.

Hey y'all, as you may have noticed, I haven't updated in a while, well, my excuses are that school work has been piling up and I was too lazy to type up the new parts. Yes, I have new parts to all my fics and at least one part of all the fics on my list (in my sig), but like I said, I've been busy with school and I haven't really wanted to sit and type them all up. My fiancé and I have three different Thanksgivings to attend tomorrow.... er, today which means I won't have time to type them up. But I promise to try to type at least one new chapter to all my fics to post on Monday. Also, I just wanted to thank all my lovely readers and feedbackers for their continued support, and always feel free to bump me. It lets me know y'all are still interested. Thanks again.

HAPPY THANKSGIVING EVERYONE!!!!

I know. I know. Y'all want an update. Well, guess what, one's coming up. My birithday is the 11th and as a present to my faithful readers, I'll post a new part, maybe two of this fic. Plus I'll be updating Dreams vs. Reality and maybe Painted Faces (the part sucks, imo). I'll also be posting a new fic called Someone Like You, if anyone is interested.

For those of you who read Coeurs Brûlure, yeah I know I said I write a New Years fic, but I was so busy that I never got around to doing it. If any of you have seen my fic list (check my sig) you know I have quite a few fics in the works. I don't know when they'll all be posted, but I'm trying not to take on too many.... obviously I'm failing, I started another new one today.

So keep checking back for updates and feel free to bump me as much as you want. Hee hee hee. Also, I'll do thank yous to everyone in the new post.
