Summary: This is the sequel to Infatuation, If you’re interested in reading this fic I highly suggest you read that one first. It’s up to you of course you don’t have too.
Quick recap: Max is a billionaire, Liz is his new wife, she is nearing five months pregnancy and they are on their honeymoon in Paris right now. They have to go live in Thailand on the eleventh of January, which is in a few days. Maria is still in Paris with Michael but everyone else has gone back to New York.

~~~*~~~

Liz lay on her back on the bathroom floor. Her eyes were lazily watching Max’s naked form through the frosted shower door. She washed him soap his arms, legs, feet, chest and backside, god she wished she could get up and join him.
“Sweet, sweet, the memories you gave’a me,
You can’t beat, the memories you gave’a me.
Take one fresh and tender kiss, add one stolen night of bliss,
One girl, one boy, some grief some joy, memories are made of this.”

Her legs were bent and her feet were flat on the floor, she was wearing only a bra and her underwear. On the stereo out in their bedroom Dean Martin was playing; Liz needed to listen to him lately. It made her want to dance in the rain though.
She wasn’t feeling well right now and she couldn’t be bothered moving. Of course Max was nice about it and made sure she was comfortable in bed before he went and had his shower.
Liz wasn’t having any of it, if she couldn’t join him in the shower she was going to watch him. She crawled into the bathroom and sprawled out on the floor. That’s where she was now.
He didn’t know she was there yet. He would most probably be mad at her when he got out and saw her there.
Liz sighed and closed her eyes, imagining that she was in there soaping his taut muscles.
Right now she wished she wasn’t pregnant. What good was a honey moon if you couldn’t make love to your soul mate twenty-four seven?
She wanted to get up; she wanted to not feel sick.
Max suddenly popped his head out of the shower door and looked down at her, “Liz,” he sighed, “What are you doing on the bathroom floor?”
Her brown eye’s filled with tears, “I’m watching you in the shower because I can’t join you,” she whimpered.
Max’s eye’s filled with sympathy, “Oh honey.” He turned off the shower and opened the door quickly, “You funny woman,” he grabbed the towel he had put on the tiled floor and dried himself then rapped it around his waist. Closing the shower door and bending down to scoop her into his arms he carried her back into their bedroom and walked over to their big bed.
He pulled the blanket’s back and lay her down gently, “Beautiful you should stay in bed,” he shook his head, “no pregnant wife of mine is lying on the cold bathroom floor.”
She sniffled.
He wiped the tears from her eyes and kissed her eyelids, “Are you feeling better?” he whispered.
Liz didn’t answer; she just curled into his side and rested her head on his lap. He brushed her long hair behind her ears, “What can I do to make it better?” he asked.
“Sing to me,” she answered in whisper.
Since Dean Martin was already on, he just sang along with him, the bit’s he knew anyway.
“How lucky can one guy be? I kissed her and she kissed me,
Like a fellow once said, ain’t that a kick in the head?
The room was completely black, I hugged her and she hugged back,
Like a sailor said, quote: ain’t that a whole in the boat?”


Max had heard this CD a lot in the last few days.

Liz chuckled, “You sweet man,”
He smiled and leant down to kiss her, “Get some sleep.”
“I’m not tired,” then she was out.
Max shook his head and pulled the blanket up her body, “Sure you aren’t,” he whispered. He moved her head so it was back on the pillow then stood up and went to turn the music off.
The music was starting to get annoying now but Liz had been craving it through her pregnancy and he would put up with it.
Today was the seventh and they had till the ninth before they had to leave. They had to go home and move her things and get them to Thailand before the eleventh. Max got dressed, checked on Liz again then went down stairs to order some food.
He ran into Michael and Maria in the lobby.
“Is Liz feeling better?” Maria asked.
“I think so, she’s resting right now,” Max shoved his hands in his pockets, “What have you two been up to?”
“Oh you know kicking back enjoying the French people,” Michael smirked. They were trying to stay out of Max and Liz’s way since it was their honeymoon. They didn’t even want to stay in France but Liz insisted they did.
“Well I hope your having a good time,” Max rubbed his forehead, “I’m going to get some food, see you around.”
“Yip, bye!” Maria took Michael’s hand and they walked away.

Max went and bought some pizza and chips and drink then went back up stairs to his wife. Wife he really loved the sound of that, he smiled.
Liz was awake when he walked into their suit; she was sitting up with her back against the backboard.
She saw the food and let out a groan, “Oh thank god I’m starving,”
Max smirked, “I thought you might, are you feeling better?” he walked over and put his hand on her forehead.
“I feel one hundred percent better,” she smiled brightly as if to prove it, “but I’m starving, I’m so glad you brought food,” she kissed him then jumped off the bed and headed over to the table to grab a shirt. She pulled one of Max’s shirts and walked back to the bed, “Come up here,” she instructed patting the mattress. He pulled off his shoes and sat in the middle of the bed with her. They both crossed their legs, “Hmm pizza,” Liz moaned.
Max chuckled, “Here,” he opened the box and picked up a piece of pizza and handed it to her.
She thanked him then dug in; she hadn’t eaten since yesterday lunch time.
“I ran into Michael and Maria downstairs,” Max ate a hot chip,
“Yeah?” Liz ate happily, “Are they having fun?”
“Mmm hmm.”
“At least some one is, I’m sorry I’ve been all-sick and bla,” she stopped eating.
“No! No Liz!” he shook his head and put his drink down down, “I don’t mind and even if I did it’s not your fault! Your pregnant, everything your going through is insignificant to what we are going to have,” he smiled.
Liz bit her lip, “Your not even a little bit disappointed?”
“I’m a guy, I’m a little…” he didn’t finish, “I am fine, all I care about is how you are,”
Liz put down her food and crawled over to him, he stopped chewing, “Liz…”
She kissed him and pushed him onto his back,
Max put his head back, “Liz…I am fine..”
Liz shook her head and looked down at him, “What you think I’m doing this for you, big man?” she pulled his shirt over his head, “I need some relief too you know.”
Max laughed, “I thought you were hungry?”
She reached for his belt, “I am,” she smiled, “Just not for food anymore.”


“When the moon hit’s your eye like a big pizza pie…” Liz sang to herself on the way to Le pre’ Catelan a restaurant a while away from their hotel, the hotel saint-merry. Max had his head back; he was resting his eyes.
Liz kissed him, “darling,” she said, “Tell me about the biggest crush you’ve ever had.”
“Why?” Liz touched his Adam’s apple as it went up and down.
“I want to know,” she smiled.
Max opened one eye, “Her name was Sarah, it was the seconds year of high school.”
Liz let out a big ‘AWE,’ “was she beautiful?”
Max laughed, “Do we have to talk about this?”
Liz nodded, “We’re just talking Max, Mr. Serious.
“Okay I’ll tell you,” he swallowed, “I thought she was beautiful at the time, yes.”
Liz looked down at her high heal shoes with a smile, “I really loved this guy named Ryan for so long,” she laughed, “When he asked me out I was so happy.”
Max raised his eye brows, “And?”
“And?” Liz looked back at him, “He just wanted in my pants,” she snorted in disgust.
Max pursed his lips; “Did he get into these pant’s of yours?”
Liz laughed at him, “You can’t possibly be jealous?” she put her head back and laughed harder, “Yes he got into my pant’s but only once.”
Max shook his head.
“Oh like you weren’t a little horn dog in high school,” she rubbed his arm, “Were there thousands, millions before me?”
“Let’s not talk about this anymore.”
Liz was the one shaking her head this time, “Man-whore.”
Max laughed.
“I wish I’d waited till I met you,” Liz looked down at her hands that were stroking his arm.
Max turned to look at her with adoring eyes; “Really?” he asked sweetly, “I wish I had too.”
They shared a kiss.
“Can I ask you a hypothetical question?” She rested her head on his shoulder.
“No,”
“If I were standing in a room with Sarah Michelle Gellar before you had ever seen me and before you ever talked to me, would you have come and over to me or her?”
Max rolled his eyes at her, “Sarah Michelle Gellar isn’t my type.”
“She isn’t?”
“No.”
“Why?”
“I don’t know, she just isn’t.”
“Max?”
“Oh no,”
“What if it was Jennifer Anniston?”
“No.”
“She can’t possibly not be your type as well!” Liz lifted her head and touched his chin,
“She isn’t my type.”
“You don’t like Sarah Michelle or Jennifer! What the heck is wrong with you? If they aren’t your type, who is?”
“You.”
Liz blushed, “I don’t count.”
“And why not?”
“Because…it’s me.

okay here it is, part one *bounce* I hope you like it. Thanyou for all the wonderful feedback!!


ONE

Liz and Maria sat together drinking tea as Max and Michael put their luggage into the car,
“I don’t want to leave yet,” Maria dipped her biscuit in her tea.
“I kind of want to get settled and comfortable now,” Liz said honestly, “But a few days wouldn’t do me wrong.”
Maria nodded, “I need to get back and open the coffee shop.”
Max walked up and smiled, “You ladies ready to go?”
“Well I’m not but Liz is,” Maria stood up and picked up her leather jacket and bag.
Max took Liz’s hand and helped her up, “You feeling okay?” he placed a kiss on the back of her neck.
“I am feeling fabulous,” Liz glowed, she really did feel great today.
“Your sure about this?” he put her jacket on her shoulders and she put her arms through.
“Yes.”

Michael was driving so Maria hopped in the front seat and Liz and Max hopped in the back.
“I want to go dancing,” Liz suddenly said as she pulled on her seat belt.
“Yeah me too!” Maria said, “When we get home let’s go clubbing.”
“Okay,” Liz reached across the seat and took Max’s hand.
“Not too late though,” Max smiled.
Maria rolled her eyes and Michael laughed.
“What?” Max asked.
Liz shook her head, “Nothing, Max darling.”

Michael went home to his house when they got back to New York. Max, Liz and Maria headed to Maria’s apartment.
“Go have a nap,” Max instructed Liz.
She lifted up her bag and Max took it off her.
“I’m pregnant not disabled!” Liz exclaimed getting annoyed, “Carrying my own bag is not going to harm or kill me.”
“I know,” Max’s voice showed how much he didn’t care. He could have been saying, ‘hand me the bread?’
He closed the boot and walked up the path to the house.
“Then stop treating me like a baby!” she called after him.
She went inside after calming down a little bit. She went straight to the kitchen to make a drink.
About ten minutes later she heard Max called her name from the bedroom. Maria was in her room unpacking.
She ambled over to her room, “Yes?” she asked.
Max was packing her things into boxes. He turned his face to her and said, “Did you want to take any furniture with you?”
Liz shrugged, “I didn’t think I’d be able to.”
“If you want to you can,” he taped up one of the boxes, “Anything?”
Liz bit her lip, “I guess I’d like to take my book case and that dresser,” she pointed to the big oak draws she kept her clothes in.
“Okay,” he smiled and continued putting things into boxes.
Liz had collected the boxes before they went to France for the wedding.
“Can I please do something?” she folded her arms, “It’s only putting things in boxes. It’ll get done so much quicker if we both do it.”
“Clothes,” he wasn’t looking at her, “You can do your clothes if you really want to.”
“YAY!” Liz said without much enthusiasm. She sat down on the floor with her legs out and open and heaved open her first draw.
“Liz,” Max squatted down behind her.
“What?” she continued to fold and stuff clothes into boxes.
Max pulled her hair away from her neck and pressed his lips to her sweet smelling skin, “Are you mad at me?” his hands went to rub her arms.
Liz couldn’t be anything when he was touching her like that. “You’re annoying me,” she said closing her eyes and pushing his hands away.
“I’m just looking after you,” he ran his fingers through her hair.
“I don’t need looking after!” she said, “Do you really think that I would do something to endanger our baby?”
“Of course not.”
“Well you treating me this way makes it come across like that,” she grabbed a shirt and shoved it into the box, “I can understand you being protective but I am a big girl I can look after myself! Tone it down a little will you?”
Max breathed in- did he just smell her?
“I can’t help it,” he suddenly said.
“Try!” Liz went to stand up but Max put his hands on her shoulders and held her down.
“Okay I’ll try,” he said, “And I am not protective because I think you’ll do something harmful to her, I am just protective of you because you mean everything to me,” he kissed her neck again, “And now so does our baby.”
“You only need to be this protective of me when I’m eight months pregnant.”
“Okay,” he turned her around to face him, “Don’t be annoyed at me anymore.”
“Will you stop being so protective?”
“I’ll try,”
“I’ll try not to be annoyed at you,” she tried not to smile.
He pecked her on the lips then stood up, “Am I allowed to ask if you want anything?”
“Yes,” she rolled her eyes and chuckled.
“Do you need anything?” he smiled like a little boy.
“No thank you.”


“Guess what?” Liz jumped over the couch and flung herself down on a pillow next to Maria who was watching Jerry Springer.
“What?” Maria was sucking on a block of chocolate.
“We decided on a name for our little girl,” Liz beamed.
“Oh my god you did?” Maria turned all her attention to Liz, “What is it?”
“We’re naming her after you, we are going to give her your middle name!” Liz jumped up and down on her bottom, “Lorraine!”
“Oh my god after me!” Maria was now jumping up and down, “I’m so happy!”
“I know!” they squealed and hugged each other.
“What’s her middle name going to be?” Maria asked.
“Lorraine Samantha Evan’s,” Liz said, “You like it?”
“I love it” Maria smiled, “And you can call her Lorry for short.”
“We can so!” Liz laughed.
Max was in the kitchen making dinner of enchiladas. They were leaving tomorrow at three-thirty.
“I’m so glad you called her Lorraine, if I could I would have that as my first name, it’s much better than Maria…”
“I know you would, that’s why we chose that one over Maria,” Liz smiled, “Max’s idea.”
“Max you sweet heart!” Maria exclaimed.
They heard him chuckle.

In the morning it was very hot. Liz buried her head in her pillow and groaned, this was not usual weather for this time of year.
Max rolled onto his back with his eyes closed and kicked the blanket’s off their bodies. Liz lifted her head breathed in the collapsed into Max’s awaiting arms. She pressed her forehead to his chest and rapped her arms around his waist.
They stayed that for a few long minutes before Max said, “God it’s hot in here.”
“I noticed,” Liz whispered.
Max untangled himself from her and went over to open the window. The sheets on the bed were tangled around Liz’s body and legs; “I fell awful.”
“Do you?” he immediately walked over to her and pressed his hand to her forehead.
“No, it’s just a headache,” Liz put her hands up to her face and brushed all her hair away from her lips and eyes. Max pressed his lips to her cheekbone, “I’ll get you a panadol.”
Liz swallowed, “OK, but put clothes on first.”
Max chuckled, “Don’t worry, I will.”
He came back a little while later and Liz sat up and rapped the sheet around her bare chest. He sat down on the side of the bed and handed her a glass of water and a pill to make the head ache cease to exist or at least relieve it slightly.
She swallowed it all quickly and thanked him.
Max went and stood by the window, the air outside was warm and muggy but the sky was gray.
Liz watched him close his eyes and breathe in all the cold air he could find. His muscles seemed to relax and his shoulders seemed to loosen.
Liz wanted him.
“Is it good?” she asked.
Max took a little while to answer, “it’s better then the heat in here,” he smiled.
Liz bit her lip, ‘come over here!’ her body cried.
He was not coming over here.
She put her head back and stared at the ceiling,
“Do you want me to get a fan?” he turned around and she shook her head,
“No I do not want that,” she drifted down, down and lay down on the bed. She pulled the sheet away from her body and put her hand on her swelling stomach. Max came over, climbed on the bed and put his hand over hers, “Is she kicking?”
“No,” Liz smiled. Max leaned down and placed kisses on her skin.
She arched into his touch and closed her eyes.
Max smirked, then climbed on top of her, he pressed his lips to hers and she reached down to pull off his boxers.
“I love you,” She whispered.

Later on, after breakfast, then showers, then finishing packing, Max went outside to help the removal guys lift the little bit of furniture into their truck.
Liz sat down on the steps in front of the doorway and watched them while she sipped on some tea.
She watched Max’s muscles flew and bulge as he lifted her dresser onto the truck, when he turned his head to check on her she blushed down and looked down at the cup in her hands.
Maria walked up behind her and yelled out, “Max put your shirt on will you? The neighborhoods having a perve!”
Liz turned her head and started down the street, many women were pretending to get their mail, Liz laughed.
It was so muggy Liz did not want to wear anything let alone a shirt.
“Don’t you ladies have anything better to do than perve at a MARRIED MAN?” Maria watched them look at her in shock, “Yeah I’m talking to you! Go inside would ya?”
Liz turned bright red, “Maria! Stop it!”
“Why?” She sat down next to her and rested her elbows on her knees, “Don’t you care that woman drool over him?”
I drool over him,” Liz continued to watch her husband.
“Yeah I can see that,” But aren’t you worried even a little bit? Thousands of woman are throwing themselves at Max Evan’s feet every day!”
“But I know Max doesn’t want them,” Liz frowned at her friend.
“He’s still a man Liz.”
“You know what?” Liz said ignoring her friend, “You may be good at fixing relationship problems but your just as good at causing them.”
Maria bit her lip, “Your right.”
Liz nodded and turned to look at Max again, he was just thanking the removal guys before they drove away. He came walking up the path with no shirt on and his dark blue, perfect fitting, jeans. Liz fought drool and a moan.
He squatted down in front of her and said, “What do you want for lunch, love?”
He was staring at her like no one else in the world existed, Liz knew he could be trusted because she could see it in every way he interacted with her.
She knew him well by now and half the time he didn’t even notice the stares and the flirting.
Filled with pride and love she leaned forward and kissed him. “I’ll have anything you give me,” she smiled.
He shook his head, “Some help you are,” he squeezed her hands once then stood up, “Maria what do you think we should have?”
“Noodles.”
“Noodles?” Liz looked at her questioningly.
“Yes chicken flavored noodles,” Maria stood up, “And I’ll make them.”
She walked inside and Max shook his head with a frown on his face.
“Come sit with me,” Liz took his hands and tugged him down to where Maria had been sitting.
He rapped his arms around her waist and pulled her close to him, “No second thoughts on leaving?” he buried his head in her neck and kissed her skin.
“No way,” Liz smiled, “I can’t wait to leave.”
“Really?” he lifted his head and rested his forehead on hers.
“Yes really,” she kissed his lips, “In fact, how long till we leave?”
“An hour and a half,” he kissed her, “I love you.”
She smiled brightly, “I love you too…” she looked down the street where a couple of nosy people were still watching, “But maybe you should gain some weight so everyone in the world doesn’t love you too.”
He chuckled, “They don’t love me,” he wanted to pull her on top of him, “You want me to be fat?”
“If you want to be fat that’s fine with me.”
He laughed, “Sure,” he pushed her down on her back so half of her body was on the carpet in the door way.
He started to tickle her and she jumped, “No oh my god, stop!”
“No,” he lay down half on top of her and pulled her shirt up to reveal her belly so he could tickle her more.
She giggled and tried to get away but he had his body weight resting on her.
“Max! no, stop, please stop!” she cried out.
He stopped but didn’t pull away.
“You mean man,” she caught her breath and closed her eyes. She felt his lips brush against hers, “You provoked me,” he breathed.
“Oh yeah how?” she closed her eyes and rapped her arms around his neck.
“You were being too wonderful,” he sucked lightly on her bottom lip and she groaned. “Sorry,” she said, “I didn’t mean to provoke you.”
She flicked her tongue out to stroke his and his mouth opened to give her access straight away.
Someone cleared their throat and they stopped dead. Liz opened her eyes.
Max got up off her,
“Erica? Sam?” Liz blushed and brushed her shirt down, “Nikkei?!”
“Yeah hi,” Erica and Nikkei blushed.
Sam laughed, “Way to go Ma…” Erica elbowed his ribs and he groaned.
Liz stood up and wiped her mouth, “It’s so good to see you guys, come in! Come in!” she led them inside and Max followed behind them all.
“Oh hey guys!” Maria noticed them from the kitchen and came out to hug them all. “Nikkei what are you doing in New York?”
“She’s staying with us. She wanted to move here, get an apartment,” Erica explained.
“Oh your first apartment?” Liz asked.
“Yes…” Nikkei blushed with a smile on her face.
“Do you have a job?” Maria asked.
“Not yet,”
“Well come work at the coffee shop with Sam and me! Now that Liz is gone we need someone else… you any good at Math and paying bills?”
“I’m decent at it. I can work a calculator,” Nikkei grinned.
Laughs. “You’re hired!” Maria and Liz both exclaimed.
“Really?” Nikkei asked delighted.
“Sure, why not?” Maria was happy she could do this for the young girl.
“Maria don’t feel like you have to,” Sam said.
“No way!” Liz rested her hand on Max’s; “Maria wouldn’t do that.”
“Never!” Maria shrieked, “I would love for her to come work with us!”
‘Oh thank you so much!” Nikkei cried.
“It’s my pleasure. So are you guys staying for lunch? We’re having noodles.”
“Noodles?” Erica asked.
“Yip,”
“Um no, we don’t really have time. We just came around to say goodbye to Liz and Max,” Sam grinned.
“Oh,” Maria said, “Well okay then, more for us.”
“Yay,” Liz muttered under her breath.
Erica came over and hugged her, “We’ll see you when you get back, no?”
“Of course,” Liz smiled, “I’ll look forward to it.”
Sam hugged her next; “You are leaving this time right?”
Everyone laughed. “Yes I am leaving! Definitely,” Liz blushed.
“Oh in that case,” Sam hugged her tighter, “We expect you to come see us when you come into town. Even if it’s only for a little while.”
“Of course,” Liz nodded.
“Good, good.”
Erica kissed Max’s cheek “You have to take care of her and make sure she gets all her cravings. It’s important during a pregnancy.”
“You have nothing to worry about. I am most definitely looking after her.”
“Good man,” she patted his back and he chuckled.
Nikkei hugged Liz and said her good byes while Sam shook Max’s hand. “If she screams at you for laughing at the wrong time, it’s just hormones. It can get quite scary but you have to remember, H-O-R-M-O-N-E-S,
“Oh you!” Erica his arm, “Stop it! Max don’t listen to him.”
Max and Liz laughed. After they left the three of them sat down for lunch
At two-thirty they had to go to the airport.
When they got there it pretty much was exactly the same as last time:
Liz and Maria hugged, and hugged, and hugged…
“I’ll ring you some time this week okay? You know how to look after the coffee shop…”
“Yes I do, go! You’ve put this off for long enough,” Maria rolled her eyes, “I can’t believe I’m going to miss you pregnancy,” she gritted her teeth, “Max take heaps of photo’s!”
“I will,” he smiled.
“Good, now when you go into labor you have to call me,”
“I will.”
“Good, oh I’m going to miss you!” she hugged her tight.
Liz had tears in her eyes when she pulled away, “I’ll see you later.”
“Yes.”
“Bye!” Maria kissed Max’s cheek, “Be good to her like I know you will.”
“Of course.” Max took Liz’s hand and they said goodbye to Maria one more time before leaving.
As they walked away Liz looked back and smiled and Maria smiled back.
“You still okay?” Max asked.
“I’m still okay,” she said.
They got to the boarding gate and handed in their tickets, “Still okay…?”
“STILL OKAY!” she chuckled, “Don’t worry I’m fine,” she kissed his cheek and they walked down the terminal into their new life.

Okay I personally don't really like this part because it doesn't really cover much. Well I guess it does since it's all about settling into their new home and Liz experiencing hormones and stuff... I still don't like it very much! this fic is turning out to be one big fluff fic isn't it?! hmmm I need to do something with it. Yes I have some idea's up my sleeves but you'll just have to wait and see...

Let's hope you enjoy it!


ONEB

The house Max had in Chiangmai, Thailand was huge.
It was a three-story house with a tennis court, golf course, indoor swimming pool, gym, entertainment room, three bathrooms, a huge kitchen, a library, a huge dining room with a table that could seat over fifty people, there was even a ball room!
There were four maids and a chief on duty eighteen hours a day and the land around the house was enough to build a small town.
The beach was not far away either.
Liz was in shock; she did not expect all this.
“What do you think?” Max grinned and closed the door on the car they had just arrived in.
“Oh my god,” was all she said, “I think I’m going to faint.”
The weather was cool since it was January but Max explained how it would be hot around March to June when the baby would be born.
“It’s… it’s huge!” she cried, “You stayed here by yourself?”
“Yeah, but I tried not to be home much.”
Liz nodded, “It would be lonely here by yourself.”
They walked up to the front door and it opened- a small lady with long brown hair that went down her back greeted them, “Mr. Evan’s your home! And you brought your young wife? Congratulations by the way.”
Max smiled, “Liz this is Apinya she is the head maid here.”
“Hey Liz,” she smiled.
“Hi Apinya.”
They went inside and the helpers went and got their bags and things. Liz took off her sunglasses and marveled at the beautiful house. The floor in the front room was black and white checkered squares; “Max this is amazing.”
“It is isn’t it?” he took her coat off her shoulders and handed it to Apinya then took off his own, she walked away and Max took his wives hands, “I’ll show you around, come on.”
He led her into the dinning room first; it had a fireplace and olden day paintings on the walls. The long table was wood and polished; the chairs matched but had red velvet cushioning.
Next they went into the big kitchen where the chief was singing to his little radio, “Reminds me of Samuel,” Liz chuckled.
“Yeah,” Max agreed with a smile on his face.
They left before he noticed them.
The indoor pool was downstairs and was a large inviting room with towels folded and placed on a small table and big windows with heavy blue curtains that reached the ground. The walls appeared to be golden and the water in the pool appeared to be blue and sparkling. Liz reached down and graced her fingers along it; it was just the right temperature, cool but slightly heated.
“Nice huh?” Max smirked.
“Yes,” Liz straightened up and smiled at him, “I could never imagine better.”
The gym was just next door and it had a treadmill, weights, and several other exercise machines.
The entertainment room was round and had glass doors along half of it, their was a view of the gardens and verandah that you could sun bathe or lay out and relax on. The glass doors had light blue see-through curtains that blocked out no light.
There was a bed size couch that was also round and had a blue rug over it; there were several pillows.
They went upstairs to the bedrooms.
Their room was divided into three rooms by French doors; A sleeping porch with queen bed, a study area with desk and twin sleeper chair, and a private bath with jetted tub/shower;
The walls were wood furnish and the carpet and curtains were different shades of red.
“Do you think you’ll be comfortable enough here?” Max smiled.
“I know I will,” Liz sat down on the bed, “Do you have to work tomorrow.”
“For some of the day, yes.”
“Will I stay here?” she asked.
“Yes,” he cupped her chin then kissed her, “there’s plenty to do, don’t you think?”
“I can keep myself entertained for a few hours. I will finish looking around tomorrow, I am very tired.”
“Okay,” he squatted down and pulled off her shoes, “Do you want me to go get you something to eat before you go to sleep?”
“No thank you,” she kissed his forehead as he stood up again.
“Do you want anything?”
“No,” she smiled, “Just sleep.”
He unbuttoned the top of her pants and she lifted her body so he could slide them down her thighs.
He put the pants down on a chair near by and then pulled her cardigan off her and put it down with them. Next her shirt was gone and she was left in her bra and underwear. He rubbed her arms, “I have a few phone calls to make, get some sleep,” he kissed her.
She smiled and crawled down the bed and hopped under the covers, he came down the side of the bed and rested his forehead on hers, “I love you.”
“I love you,” she closed her eyes, “You will be here when I wake up?”
“I’ll do my very best.”
“Don’t you always?”


Liz woke up the next morning at eight-thirty. Max was not next to her. She pulled off the covers and rolled onto her back, where was he?
As if reading her thoughts the man himself walked out of the bathroom door newly dressed after having a shower. He was shaved, and smelt wonderful.
“Hey! You!” she propped herself up on her elbows, “Where do you think your going?”
He was doing up his tie and smiled when he realized she was awake.
“You must have gotten up early,” she yawned.
Max walked over and sat down on the bed next to her, “I did get up early, I have to go to the office.”
“Oh,” she yawned again and he took her hands in his and kissed them, he ran his lips over her wedding ring and her engagement ring that she kept on the same finger. It looked quite impressive.
“I’m sorry,” he let go of her hands and reached down to tuck her hair behind her ears, “You’ll be okay here, you can go swimming, play golf, watch movies play tennis, do anything!” he breathed in, ‘no wait not tennis, you have to take it easy.”
Liz chuckled, “Yeah I know, I’ll be fine. I’ll go for a walk around and check everything out. Don’t worry about me.”
“Nothing you could say will stop me from worrying about you,” he ran his hand over her belly and left it there, “I’ll ring when I get a chance.”
“Good.”
“Breakfast should be ready, do you want it brought up to you or do you want to eat down...?” she sat up and pressed her lips to his,
“I’ll eat down there after I’m dressed,” she rapped her arms around his neck and pressed her nose to his, “You can’t even stay for breakfast?”
“No I can’t, I wish I could…” she kissed him again.
“I understand,” she wanted to make love to him before he left but she could see that was not an option today. She would just have to wait till he got home.
He stood up and tucked his hands in his pockets, “I’ll see you later,” he smiled.
“Yes you will,” he kissed her once then hesitantly made his way to the door and left.

Liz got up a few minutes later and had a shower. She stood under the water soaping her body and spending extra time running her hands over her belly. She closed her hands and opened her mouth to soak in all the water, it felt so nice. She spent a whole twenty minutes just standing there and enjoying it. She thought about what she was going to do today and she thought about Max and wondered how often he would have to leave so early?
Would he have to leave this early every morning?
Well if he did she would just have to get up earlier and so would he; she did not want to accidentally sleep late then miss him. Waking up in his arms was one of her favorite things.
She turned off the water and reached out of the shower to grab a towel, I Max had to work every day what was she supposed to do?
Today would be okay since it was the first day and she had new territory to search but what about every other day?
She couldn’t clean like normal housewives because they had maids who already did everything. Plus Max wouldn’t want her cleaning because he wanted her to take it easy.
After drying herself and brushing her teeth she got into a light pink v-neck dress and brushed her hair straight. The maids had already put all her things into draws! She couldn’t believe it!
All of her things were out of the suitcase she had brought them in.
She walked downstairs and was greeted by the maids; they all introduced themselves and then led her into the dinning room.
“Would you like to eat here or maybe you would like to eat outside? The sun is shinning today and you can see the garden from the porch…?” Narnia a blonde girl who was taller than Liz gave her options as to what she would like to do.
“I’d love to eat outside,” Liz answered.
The porch was a concrete circle with a wooden table set out with a big green umbrella over the top. The maids milled around her fixing the seat and setting up her cutlery and food.
She felt like she was at a hotel.
Narnia’s blonde hair was twisted back on top of her head and she even wore a little waitress uniform like the others.
“Will you join me?” Liz asked, she wanted some company.
“I don’t think…” she smiled, “That wouldn’t be appropriate, I will bring you what ever you want though, do you need anything now?”
“No thank you,” Liz said quietly.
She walked away and that left Liz by herself with only the view to entertain her.

Throughout the day she read in the library, walked around the grounds and admired the gardens, ran on a treadmill in the gym and helped the cook in the kitchen. He insisted she didn’t but she wouldn’t listen. They made dinner for her and Max and then dessert.
At seven-thirty Max was still not home so she ended up eating by herself. She was not happy about this. Max had not called and if he had that would have been a little bit better but he hadn’t and that was not good.
She ate her chocolate moose in her sundae cup as she walked to the entertainment room, once she got there she put down her sundae and searched through the DVDs that were available for her use.
She decided to watch Meet Joe Black and put it on. She finished her sundae and watched the movie. By eight she was lying down and slowly drifting off.

Max came in and smiled, “Hey,” he said.
Liz opened her eyes and then closed them again, “What time is it?”
“Around eight-thirty,” he bit his lip, “Your mad at me.”
“I just want to know why you didn’t call,” she yawned and tucked her hands under her head.
“I went to call you at six to say I was going to be late but someone dragged me into a meeting,” he sighed, “you have every right to be mad and I am sorry.”
“You are a lot lately,” she wanted to stay awake so she fought to keep her eyes open.
Max rubbed his forehead and sat down on the edge of the bed, “It won’t happen again.”
“How do you know?” she asked.
“Because I won’t let it,” he reached out to touch her and she shivered. “Are you cold?”
“A little,” she said hoping he wouldn’t touch her burning skin.
He pulled the blankets up to her neck, “What did you do today?”
“I just fooled around here,” she yawned again.
“You relaxed right?”
“Right.”
She started to wake up more and reached out to take his hand, “I’m not mad I was just disappointed when you couldn’t eat the nice dinner me and Ryan the cook made.”
“You made…?”
“I wanted to help and after much persuasion I was allowed,” she ran his wedding ring up and down his finger,
“Now I’m even more annoyed I wasn’t able to get here,” he smiled, “I love your cooking,” he leaned down and kissed her, “I love everything about you.”
Liz blushed. She was mad at him before he arrived! She hated it how he did that to her. He did things wrong and then he would touch her and make everything else evaporate.
He touched her stomach, “How was the little rascal today?”
Liz laughed, “She was fine,” she rolled onto her back,
“Good.”
He pulled off his shoes and then his tie, which was loose already.
Liz waited impatiently for him to lie down.
Finally he too off his jacket and lay down next to her, “What are you watching?” he grabbed some pillows and propped himself up so she could rest her head on his lap.
“Meet Joe black,” she grinned, “Brad Pitt is so hot.”
“I’ve met him, he’s a nice guy.”
“Really?” Liz looked up at him.
“Yes,” he smirked, “can I ask you a question?”
“Sure,”
“If I were standing in a room with Brad Pitt before you had ever seen me and before you ever talked to me, would you have come and over to me or him?”
Liz cracked up laughing; “Brad Pitt’s not my type.”
“Why not?”
“Okay I lie, he is my type but I probably would have gone up to both of you,” she playfully bit his stomach, “Isn’t he married to Jennifer Anniston?”
They both laughed.
“Come here,” she tugged on his arm, she wanted him to lie on top of her.
“I’m too heavy,” he said quietly.
“No you’re not,” she protested.
He lay down on top of her but held himself up with his hands.
She kissed him, “Tell me about your day.”
“Which part? The part when I was…” he kissed her, “Thinking about you all the time or the bit when I was longing for you all the time?”
“Both,” she shifted so she could kiss his neck and breathe him in.
“Well,” his hands began to wonder, “I never had a lunch break so I didn’t have time to come and see you, I will have one tomorrow.”
His hand went up her top and Liz smiled in satisfaction, “Will you leave as early tomorrow morning?”
“I only had to leave this early because it was the first day back, I won’t have to again,” he fondled her nipple through her bra,
“What time will you have to leave?”
“Nine-thirty or ten,” he brought his hand out from under her shirt and went to pull it over her head.
Liz stopped him by putting her hand over hers, “No,” she whispered nearly inaudibly.
Max was shocked to say the least, “What’s wrong?” he asked with worried eyes, “Are you okay your not in pain are you?”
Liz shook her head, “No I just…” she bit her lip.
“Tell me,” he looked worried, “Did I do something wrong?”
“No, no you didn’t do something wrong,” she wouldn’t look him in the eyes.
He got up off her and stared at her worried, “You just don’t feel like…?”
“No,” she fought a smile, “I do I just…”
She was being silly she knew she was but she couldn’t help it,
“Can we just leave my top on?” she whispered.
Max raised his eye brows, “Of course… why?”
Liz blushed and looked down at her hands, she felt so silly.
“Liz?” he cupped her cheek, “You can tell me anything right?”
“Yes, I’m just embarrassed.”
“Embarrassed? It’s me! Why would you be embarrassed? Of what?” he was so kind.
“Mybody,” she said quietly at once, “Itsbiganduglyrightnow because of the baby.”
Max had trouble understanding her but he got the picture.
He took her hands and pulled her up so she was sitting up, “Oh no,” he smirked, “Your not…?” chuckles, “Your not worried about me not liking your body like this are you?” more chuckles, “Your not are you?” he started to laugh.
“What?” Liz frowned at him, “What is so funny!” she hopped up off the couch and huffed, “I don’t find it very funny, there is nothing funny about any of this!”
“Liz you’re being very silly.”
“Oh I’m sure,” she rolled her eyes, “Your not the one who has to out on about two stone and be as big as a house! Maybe if I were in your situation I may find it funny to see me like this but it’s not nice for me!”
Max shook his head, he was trying not to laugh, he wasn’t being very nice but he couldn’t help it.
“Liz, Liz, Liz.”
“What, what, what?” she folded her arms over herself, “I don’t want you to…” she whimpered, “Find me unattractive.”
“Never,” Max said quietly, “No way Liz! You know that I love your body, stop this,” was this to do with hormones?
Liz had been pretty good with her hormones, sure she cried quite frequently and sometimes yelled at him for nothing but it wasn’t very often. He didn’t have much experience with pregnant woman and he didn’t quite know what to say to make it better. If he told her the truth, which he will soon, she would just need to hear it again tomorrow when she was self conscious about herself yet again. He wished he had some magical powers to make her better, he hated seeing her doubt herself and sometimes even him.
“Liz honey,” he reached out and took her hands in his, “Come on, I adore you. If you put on seventy-nine pounds I would still love you, I see you as perfect. Don’t you understand that? No one compares to you. No one could satisfy me more than you can,” he smirked, “Come here, let me see your beautiful breasts and stomach.”
“No,” a tear dripped down her cheek.
“Yes,” he tugged her to him and yanked at her top, it came off easily.
She tried to cover herself.
He ran his warm hands over her belly and then her breasts, “God your so beautiful,” he brought his stubble-covered cheek up to her skin and ran it up and down. It caused her to shiver.
“Tell me again,” she said almost in whispered.
Max ran his lips up and down over her navel and above it, “You’re an angel sent from heaven aren’t you? You have me convinced you are, no ones as perfect as you,” he smiled, “Come her, lie down on top of me will you?” he lay down on his back and helped her up. She sat down on his stomach, “Am I heavy?”
Yes, “No of course not sweet heart,” he unbuttoned the top of her pant’s, “I’ll show you how much I love you, no?”
“Yes,” Liz wiped her eyes.
She lifted her bottom so he could pull the pant’s down, she helped him. She got up on her knees and pulled them down her thighs and then stood up and pulled them down all the way.
“Pant’s are annoying, how about you forever wear a skirt?” he smirked like a horny man would.
Liz shook her head, “Even when it’s cold?”
“Even when it’s cold,” he watched her pull off her underwear.
“I was wearing a dress today but I changed.”
He lifted his head and groaned, “Why…? Ow,”
“What’s wrong?” she frowned, “Is your neck sore, I’ll massage it, turn over.”
“It’s fine. What do you know about massages?”
“I know enough, turn over, turn over my love. Take off your shirt,” she smiled, “No let me.”
After the shirt was gone he rolled onto his back and she sat down on his bottom, “Tell me if I’m hurting you,” she ran her fingers up and down his neck and pressed them against the middle slightly. He groaned, “That hurts.”
“Your working too hard, your body doesn’t like it,” she chuckled, “Maybe you should retire and stay home making love to your wife all day.”
“Not a bad life, I would love to live it,” he closed his eyes and shuddered at the feel of her hands all over him.
“I know you would,” she leaned down and kissed his backbone, “Does that feel nice?”
A moan was her reply.
“Let me take your pant’s off,” she got off him slightly and he raised his body so she could reach under and undo the button. Once it was undone she pulled them down to his knees, “Lift up,” she instructed. He lifted his knees and she pulled them down the rest of the way, his checkered boxers were all that was left.
“Again,” she chuckled. Max did as he was told and lifted his body again so she could remove them too. Once they were gone she sat down on his back and rubbed herself against him. They both found it strangely arousing.
“Hmm,” Max moaned, “What are you doing to me?”
“You like that?” she reached behind her back and undid her bra, “It feels good?”
“It feels good,” he said quietly. She leaned down and rubbed her bare breasts against his back, “I love you,” she nibbled on his ear.
“Yes me too, do that again,” he opened his mouth and kept from moaning at what she was doing to his back, why was it so nice?
“This?” she rubbed her breasts and heat up and down and heard him groan low in his throat, “Turn over.”
“No,” he moaned.
“Please?” she ran his fingers through his hair.
He rolled over and she sat down on his chest, naked and beautiful before him. She was a raven beauty.
He looked at her adoringly “hmm marry me you wonderful woman.”
“We are already married,” she smirked.
“Really? Your mine?” he smiled, “Come here let me feel your breasts on my chest.”
She lay down and buried her head in his neck, “Feels good?” he asked.
“Yes,” she kissed his chin, “It feels good.”
“Don’t feel that your body won’t satisfy me ever again, Liz, love, honey,” he kissed her forehead, he wanted to make sure she wasn’t still questioning herself, “You,” he ran his hands up her back, “are everything I could dream of and more. Actually my pathetic imagination couldn’t conger up anything as extraordinary as you.”
She rested her forehead, “Thank you,” she blushed.
“No…” he smiled lifting her off him and pinning her to the bed, “Thank you.”


The next morning Liz was awoken by the sun shinning in on her face, her eyes twitched and she reached up to rub them.
Her body didn’t seem to want to wake up yet so a series of pains ached in her legs and arms for a few annoying minutes. Sighing and wanting to move she kicked her leg up and bent it so it sprung out of the warm blanket, she twisted her ankle around until it clicked then put her leg back under the blanket. She did the same for her other leg then let her body get used to moving again after a long night. Max’s arm was spread out over her stomach and when she felt the baby kick his arm twitched, she chuckled and reached down to touch his muscles.
The entertainment room was beautiful to wake up in; the sun shinned in through the glass doors and hit the chiffon-like material that was used as curtains, it made the room glisten with blue and white.
It wasn’t muggy and it wasn’t cold but it would be nice to feel a breeze on her face and body right now. Lifting Max’s arm and slipping of the bed she quietly made her way over to the glass doors and opened a set of them, when she turned around Max was lying on his side watching her. She blushed and crossed her arms over herself, the baby chose this moment to kick again.
She jumped in shock and moved her hands to touch the spots that were being affected; subconsciously she wandered back over to the big couch bed and sat down on the side.
Max rolled onto his belly and reached out with his hand to touch her stomach, it vibrated just as his fingers grazed her skin. He smiled in awe.
Liz put her hand over his and rubbed his knuckles with her fingers, “Hmm,” he sighed.
She lifted her legs up onto the bed and lay down on her back so he could continue to adore her stomach and what they had created. The whole experience of pregnancy and childbirth seemed so surreal.
She closed her eyes at the feel of his fingers caressing her skin, “That feels so nice Max.”
He smiled and rested his head on her chest as he caressed her skin. Liz felt herself start to drift off and not wanting to she sat up and Max moved his head away quickly, he had obviously been drifting off too.
He looked half-asleep as he licked his lips and put his head down on the cushions. Liz thought he was so adorable.
She touched his bare chest with her hand and he opened one eye tiredly; a yawn escaped his lips.
She smiled and crossed her bare legs, “Maybe you should sleep till nine, nine-thirty,” she blinked, “When you leave.”
“No, I’m up,” more yawns, “Just give me a few minutes.”
Liz chuckled, “Go back to sleep love,” she got up off the couch and walked over to the DVD’s, “I’ll just watch,” she flicked through them, “A bugs life in the other room.”
They both smirked.
“Come here funny girl,” he held his sagging arm out to her and then not being able to contain it’s weight dropped it back onto the cushions.
Liz leapt onto the couch and crawled over to him, “Want to go take a bubble bath?” she grinned sheepishly, “I’ll wash your whole body with soap and then I’ll wash your hair.”
“Sounds nice,” he wanted to get up but couldn’t find the strength yet, “I can’t move my body.”
“Okay I’ll move it for you,” she crawled off the couch and tugged at his arm. He didn’t move five millimeters.
“Come on honey!” she cried, “How are you supposed to go to work like this? Maybe you should call in sick,” she was grinning again.
“I’m not sick,” he sat up slightly, “And it’s only…” he looked at the time on the VCR and then back at her, “Seven-forty eight. I do not have to work till ten! Why am I awake?”
“Because your wife want’s to wash you,” she was very happy this morning, very bubbly. “Look I’ll go get the bath ready and you lie down and let yourself wake up.”
She pulled on her shirt and pants then left the room.
When she came back Max was asleep.

hi! I'm sorry it's been taking me a while to post new parts, *cough* stupidschool *cough*
Anyway I hope you like it *tongue*

THREE

“So what’s it like?” Maria asked.
“Well…” Liz bit her lip, “I love being here with Max but I am quite bored when he’s not around! I mean he won’t let me do anything, he just wants me to relax but how am I supposed to do that? It is so boring.”
Maria laughed, “Well you have a indoor swimming pool, a beach not far away, a library, golf and a GYM! I think you’ll find something to do.”
“But the novelty of all that is wearing down now that it’s been over a week, I don’t want to say anything to him because he has enough pressure over work as it is. He’s so tired when he gets home from work, we haven’t been together intimately in nearly a week.”
“A week that’s got to be a record!” Maria laughed into the phone, “don’t worry Liz you’ll start to get used to it and it’ll be fine. Jeesh I wish I could hang around doing nothing all day. Stop complaining.”
“I’m not complaining,” Liz said, “I hope I get used to it. For my sake.”
“You will! Why don’t you try and make friends? Go see the neighbors and introduce yourself, tell Max to throw a business party, do something!”
“Okay, okay I’ll go see the neighbors even though it will probably take me twenty minutes to walk there.”
“Why are you going to see the neighbors?” Max walked into the kitchen where she was sitting talking into the phone. He kissed her forehead then said, “This house is too big it takes me five minutes to find you,” he smiled.
“Your home early!” she kissed his lips. She was overjoyed it was only five-thirty!
“Good huh?” he walked over to the stove and looked around, “Where’s the cook? What’s for dinner?”
“I said he could go home and have a break.”
“Liz!” Maria called trying to get her attention.
“Yeah?”
“Max home?”
“Yes,” Liz answered, “Max is home.”
“Say hey Max you horn dog!”
Liz rolled her eyes, “Max, honey, Maria says hi.”
“Hi Maria,” Max looked up, What’s for dinner then?”
“I’ll make something in a second Max. I didn’t think you’d be home this early.”
“I’m starving now,” he whined, “I’ll make something.”
“I’m sorry!” Liz said, Max didn’t say anything.
“Is Max not letting you do anything again?” Maria asked.
“No, I think he’s annoyed at me for letting the cook go home early,” Liz bit her lip.
“Tell him your wearing a skirt,” Maria laughed.
Liz doubled over.
Max was shuffling through the pantry trying to find something to cook.
“How’s the coffee shop?” Liz asked.
“It’s good, the same as usual, I’m handling it fine… don’t give it a second thought,” Maria said, “Nikkei is doing well too, she’s fitting in perfectly.”
“That’s good,” Liz said watching Max get things ready for whatever he was making, “So no proposal from Michael yet?”
Maria laughed, “Nope.”
Max also laughed.
“What a shame, give him a whack over the head. As my mother said we aren’t going to be young forever. Oh! Max proposed to me after my mom had stayed Michael will do the same for you.”
“Hmm,” Maria was grinning into the phone, “You don’t think he’s going to just drag me along for three years and then leave me to be a twenty-eight year old non married worker do you?!”
“No Maria I don’t think he’ll do that.”
“I guess I’m in no hurry right now…” Maria sighed.
“Really? Why do I not believe you?”
“Haha! Leave me alone Mrs. Married Evan’s.”
“Yes that’s right I’m married,” Liz got up off the stool she was sitting on and walked over to Max, “Maybe you should hurry up and catch up to me.”
“Shut up!” Maria cried.
“I’ve got to go to the bathroom, talk to Max for a little bit kay?”

When Liz came back she walked over to Max again and heard the last bit of their conversation.
“Bye Maria I’m glad you and Michael are doing great, yes I think he’ll ask you to marry him and I’m glad you brought a new top that you love, bye!” he handed the phone back to Liz and frowned at her, “Boy that girl can talk…”
Liz laughed then leaned up to peck his lips, “I love you,” she grinned. Max pinched her ass as she walked back over to her stool.
“Speaking of wedding’s, do you have me and Max’s wedding photo’s done yet?”
“Yeah they are on their way to you as we speak. Your parent’s and Max’s parent’s got some too. They are really beautiful! You’re going to love them.”
“Oh I hope so! I need something to frame and stick on the wall so it looks like the person who lives in this house actually has friends. I’ve got a couple of you up and one of my parent’s but that’s it. How sad is that?”
“Very, I stuck one of me at the wedding by the television here, it’s the best photo of me.”
“Yeah?” Liz smiled, “Cool.” Max walked up to her, ‘Taste this,” he ran his finger over the spoon in his hand and covered it in peanut stir-fry sauce then held it up to her mouth. She licked his finger, “Nice?” he asked.
“Hmm god yeah,” she emitted a small moan. Max leaned up to her, “You have a little… something…” he brought his lips near hers, “Maybe I should just…”
“What?” she smirked, “Right here?” she put her finger up to her lips.
“Yeah, let me get… rid of that for you,” he kissed the side of her mouth and licked the sauce away, “That’s better,” he breathed out.
“Liz!” Maria called out, “I’m still here!”
“Maria I have to go, I’ll call you later.”
“What… no Liz, but…!” Liz hanged up and rapped her arms around Max’s neck and brought his lips to hers.
They kissed passionately but were interrupted by Max’s stomach grumbling.
Liz chuckled against his lips, “Come on let’s eat first.”
“Okay,” he walked back over to the stove and served up the food onto plates.
“How come your home so early anyway? I thought you had a meeting tonight?” Liz got out some cups and knives and forks.
“It’s been postponed till tomorrow morning,” He picked up the plates and they went outside to the porch to eat. Liz put the knives and forks down then went back inside and came back a few minutes later with two candles and some matches.
She put leaned over her chair and put the candles on the table then lit them. Max could smell her wonderful scent and couldn’t resist placing a kiss on her shoulder.
She sat down next to him and Max put his hand on her belly quickly, “Anything new?” he asked.
He asked that every day when he got home. It was his way of making sure he wasn’t missing out on everything, Liz wished he didn’t have to work so much.
“I’m just getting bigger,” she sighed, “I’m fat, fat, fat, fat.”
“Your pregnant.”
“I’m gonna be the size of a house!”
“Your pregnant!”
“SO?” she cried, “Oh god Max I feel like a bloated fish or something.”
He touched her arm, “I love bloated fish then,” he smirked.
Liz frowned at him, “Max…”
“What…?”
“You don’t know what it’s like! It’s horrible.”
“But it’s for something wonderful? Isn’t being like this worth it?”
“I guess but it’s still horrible,” she picked up her knife and fork.
“When do you need a check up?” he asked worried, “I want to be there, I will not miss that.”
“Find out when you can have a day off and we’ll go,” she scooped some food into her mouth.
“Okay,” he smiled. After a few minutes he suddenly asked, “Oh what was that about the neighbors when I walked in?”
“Oh that… that was nothing,” she said.
“Liz…”
“Okay it was just because Maria was telling me to make friends so I can have someone to spend my time with while you’re at work. By chance, we don’t need to throw any business parties do we? I could meet some of the woman who have to stay home during the day…”
“You should go meet the neighbors, they are nice people. I don’t know if we should have a party while your pregnant…”
“No Max, it might be good for your business anyway wouldn’t it? I mean when was the last time you threw one? Not while I’ve known you.”
“It would be good but I don’t know…”
“Oh please! I’ll get everything sorted out and make sure it’s okay with the maids that they work and the chief. Please?” She turned all her attention to him, “And I can meet everyone. Your not ashamed of me are you…?”
“Ashamed of you? You’re crazy. I’ll think about the party okay? I’m not promising anything…”
“Oh yay thank you!” Liz kissed his cheek.
“I didn’t say ye…” he just shook his head and continued eating.
Liz thought about all the stuff she would have to do with excitement. She would have to make invitations and arrange entertainment and decorations and food! She was so happy she would have something to do!


Michael and Maria were lying on his bed in his apartment and Maria kissed his chest, “Do you ever want to have kids?”
Michael swallowed, oh no, not that conversation. “I don’t know I guess.”
“Just not right now?” she asked.
“Yeah not right now.”
“Don’t worry I’m not asking you to have kids or anything I’m just talking.”
What a relief, “Oh I knew that.”
She sat up and rapped the blanket around her shoulders to cover her naked body, “I love you Michael.”
Michael didn’t know what to say. Not wanting to leave her sitting there he quickly said, “Thank you.”

“He said WHAT?” Liz cried into the phone.
“He said thank you!” Maria screamed, “I can’t believe it! Could he be more of a guy? I mean shit! thank you I don’t need to hear thank you! We’ve been going out for how long now? If he doesn’t even love me what the hells the point?”
“I’m sure he does Maria,” Liz walked into the poolroom, “Don’t be to upset. Why don’t you just ask him if he thinks the relationship is going anywhere? Say to him, if he doesn’t want to become anything more than your not going to waste your time.”
“But what if he’s doesn’t love me?”
“He will! You know he’s a total not talk about my feeling’s person, just talk to him. Okay call me when you have?”
“Okay bye, wish me luck.”
“Good luck!” Liz said before hanging up the phone. She put it down on the table near the pool and pulled the clip out of her hair.

As she walked up to the pool edge an idea came to mind. She dismissed it, she really shouldn’t I mean what if one of the maids came in?
She bit her lip; it was her house she was allowed to swim naked if she wanted to. She pulled down one of the straps on her bikini, “Oops,” she smirked.
She paused- it really wasn’t appropriate. Was it?
“So what?” she said out loud, she was slightly amused at herself.
She slipped the other strap off her shoulder then reached behind her back and unclipped the plastic clip holding the material on her. It fell to the ground and she looked down at herself, she sure had grown in the chest area lately. She slid the underwear off and stood at the edge of the pool completely naked, this caused her to blush. What happened to spontaneous skinny dipping Liz, why was she being so shy?
Had to have something to do with this pregnancy, she dismissed it and dived into the pool. The water felt so good, it enveloped her like a big cool blanket, she felt her whole body jut relax and take a big…sigh?
Today was the twentieth of February and it was just another day of her being home alone.

She had gone to see the neighbor and the first time a few days ago and the owners where not home, the second time a lady called Allen was home. They only had one neighbor, because they were the last house on the street.
It had been a great visit.

“Hello can I help you?” The maid had led her through the house to a verandah where a woman with red curly hair sat drinking juice and watching a little girl jump around in the pool.
“I’m Liz, Max’s wife, your neighbor? I just wanted to come around and introduce myself,”
“Oh!” she stood up, “I heard he’d got married! It’s nice to meet you, she held her hand out and Liz shook it, “I’m Allen.”
The lady was lanky and her bones and chin were pointy. She had sparkling green eyes but they were dimmed right now by the red around the rims. Liz guessed she may have been crying but didn’t feel she had the right to ask if she was okay yet.
Liz just smiled and said, ‘It’s nice to meet you.”
“Sit down and join me! Do you want a drink?”
“Sure, why not?” Liz brushed down her dull-pink v-neck sun dress and took a seat.
“Lee!” Allen cried out, “Come here please! Liz want do you want for drink?”
“What your having looks great,” Liz put her sunglasses on top of her head.
“No you can’t have what I’m having,” her eyes darted to Liz’s stomach, “no one’s meant to know it has vodka in it, so shhh.”
Vodka, red eyes? Liz hoped she wasn’t Liz suspected she may be, “Okay a normal orange juice will be fine.”
Lee walked up, he was a butler/ maid person, “Yes miss?”
“Will you please get Liz a orange juice?”
“Anything else?” he asked.
“Do you want something to eat…?” Allan asked, “No wait, Lee bring us a piece of chocolate cake each will you?”
“I don’t nee…” Liz didn’t get to finish what she was saying.
“Let’s eat naughty aye? Thanks lee.”
Once Lee was gone Allen said, “So your pregnant! I was never told Max Evan’s was going to be a father!” she shook her head, “How far along are you?”
“Just over five-months,” Liz couldn’t help but put her hands on her belly.
“Oh, do you know if it’s a boy or girl?”
“Yeah, it’s a girl, Lorraine Samantha Evan’s.”
“That’s so beautiful! Did you come up with that?” Allen asked. Lee came back and placed a piece of cake and a drink in front of Liz then left again.
“No actually it was Max’s idea too, he said Lorraine and I said Samantha so yeah…” Liz looked out at the pool, “Is she yours?” she motioned to the little girl who looked around seven.
“Yes she is, her name is Nina,” Allan smiled, “How old are you Liz?”
“I’ll be twenty six in two weeks.”
“So young,” she sipped her drink, “to be that young again…”
Liz smiled.


They talked for a couple of hours and Allan said that Liz was welcome to come around any time she liked in fact she would love it. They hit it off quite well but Liz still had that inclining feeling something was wrong, she never asked about it.
She left Allan’s house at four-thirty feeling very happy and very full of food. That night when Max got home she couldn’t stop talking about how happy she was that she now knew someone.

They had been talking about the party they were going to throw and decided not to do it until the eleventh of March so Liz could relax and get things done for it.

Now here she was relaxing and doing work, she had gone back to see Alan again yesterday but she wasn’t home.

Liz dived under the water again and swam along the bottom with her arms out. She couldn’t the last time she had swum in a swimming pool like this; she hadn’t felt like swimming the whole time she had been here until now. She would definitely have to start doing this more often. When she came up for air Max was standing at the edge of the pool with a big smile on his face.
“What are you doing here?” she ran her hands through her wet hair and puffed the water away from her face.
“What no, ‘welcome home honey, I’m so glad to see you?’” he was grinning now.
“I’m ecstatic your home, but it’s only twelve-thirty, do you have the rest of the day off?” she rapped her arms around herself and stayed under the water up to her chin.
“I do, yes,” still with the grinning. Why was he looking at her like that?
“Really? You’re not lying?”
“I am not lying,” he crossed his arms, still grinning.
Liz frowned, “Why are you looking at me like that?” she blushed, “Keep looking.”
“I intend to,” he was so adorable, “You don’t do this every day do you?”
“Do what?” she bit her lip.
“Because there is no way I cold last through a whole day at work while knowing you were here like this,”
“Like what?” she was blushing even more now.
“Swimming… naked in this pool,” he shook his head, “Please tell me you don’t this every day.”
“Is that what you want to hear?” she knew this was turning him on. “I don’t do this every day.”
“You don’t?” he bit his lip to keep from grinning anymore but he couldn’t help it, “Thank god.”
Liz went under the water and swam closer to the side of the pool where he was standing. When she came up be was squatting down in front of the water, “Why don’t you join me?” she asked.
Max pursed his lips, it was taking every bit of energy he had not to jump in there fully clothed. He cleared his throat.
“Come on!” she flicked some water on his face, “I know you wanna.”
She lifted her arms from the water and reached for his shoelaces, she undid them and he stood up and stepped out of them.
He took off his jacket and put it down on the seats near by and then put his tie with it.
Liz waited impatiently, “I’m waiting,” she said.
Max shook his head, turned around walked over and jumped in still in his pants, socks and blue button-down shirt.
He came up from under the water and grabbed her arms, “Fast enough for you?” he teased.
“Your still dressed you crazy man,” she chuckled, “Yes fast enough, thank you.”
She unbuttoned his pants and tried to pull them down but it was quite hard in the water, he helped her. They got them down to his ankles and he kicked them off, leaving them to float in the water along with his boxers,
“Half a day off?” their lips found each others, “It must be a miracle.”
“Must be,” he smiled as she rapped her legs around his waist. She started unbuttoning his shirt, “Did you go see Allan at all this morning?” he asked.
“No,” she undid the last button and pulled it off his shoulders, “I stayed in bed till eleven-thirty and then Maria rang and I stayed in there longer talking to her,” finally he was naked.
“Sounds nice,” they kissed again, “Are you feeling okay?”
“I’m feeling fantastic,” Liz rapped her arms around his neck and pressed her forehead to his, his hands wondered down to his arousal and he led himself inside of her quickly, “In fact,” she moaned, “Better than fantastic.”
He breathed into her mouth and moved forward a little so Liz’s back was against the pool edge.

Narnia wondered into the room and up to the table carrying a new bunch of towels, she didn’t notice Max and Liz until she was turning to leave, she gasped and blushed.
Max looked up and tried to keep from laughing, Liz blushed. Hopefully the water didn’t give away what they were doing?
Narnia quickly exited the room her face bight red. Max couldn’t help but laugh. Liz just shook her head; “Maybe we shouldn’t have maids?”
“Yeah they don’t seem to fit our life style do they?”
“Our lifstyyyyyyyyy,” he pulled out of her and thrust back in, “Our life style?” she panted.
He nipped her ear, “Yes,” he pulled himself out again and pushed himself back in again, they both moaned.
“Wait,” Liz’s voice came out quiet and weak.
Max pulled himself out; “yes?” he kissed her lips and slowly started pushing himself in again…
“What if, OH!” he thrust into her and she cried out.
“What if someone comes in?” she panted her whole body swimming in heat. They were making little waves in the pool.
“They won’t,” He pulled put and thrust into her again. They both felt the wave coming and they knew one more time would send them over the edge, he pulled out and they shared a hungry kiss as he pushed back in. Max moaned and Liz’s body shuddered.
“Thank you,” Liz panted burying her face in his neck.

I hope you like this part, I think this is the best part this story (personally) so tell me what you think! *big*


FOUR

Max sat his big desk in his office, his phone beeped, “Mr. Evan’s, Mrs. Evan’s here to see…”
His door opened and his beautiful wife grinned at him, “I told her she didn’t need to buzz me in…” she glanced at the woman sitting down across from his desk, “Opps, sorry,” she blushed. The woman had hair like Liz’s except a little shorter, she had blue eye’s and was wearing a dark gray woman’s suit with a white low cut blouse underneath.
Max smirked and the woman stood up, “It’s all right I’m leaving, I presume we’re finished here?”
Max stood up and held his hand out for the woman to shake, “Yes I guess we are, get back to me with his decision and we might discuss a contract.”
“I’ll be sure to do that, it was pleasure, thank you,” she picked up her brief case and walked to the door, Liz leaned against it and waited patiently for Max to be finished.
“We’ll see you again,” the lady smiled then nodded her head to Liz as in saying hello.
“Hi,” Liz smiled and then bit her lip.
“Yeah, thank you,” Max said before she left.
The secretary walked up to the door soon after, “I was trying to tell your wife to wait but she said…”
“She shouldn’t have to wait she’s my wife, she can come in whenever she wants, but thank you. You will remember that for next time?”
“Yes, I apologize,” his secretary hurried away and closed the door behind her. Liz had a very amused look on her face and Max smiled at her, “An delightful surprise.”
Liz walked up to his desk and said, “Should I be worried? All these beautiful woman around here and in you’re office? You aren’t having an affair are you…?”
Max snorted, “Hardly,” he sat down in his chair and folded his arms, “I get enough from my wife at home,” he grinned.
“You do?” she walked around behind his desk and said teasingly, “How can I be so sure…?”
“Because,” he took her arms and pulled her close to him so they could share a kiss, “I love you and I am far beyond even wanting to be satisfied by anyone else,” he kissed her, “I think if I was ever in the situation I wouldn’t be able to do anything because, all I desire, all I am hungry for constantly…” he kissed her neck, “Is you.”
Liz smiled, “good man,” she pulled away from his arms and sat down on his desk.
He gritted his teeth, “So what did you buy? You did go shopping didn’t you?” He straightened his tie and rested his arms on each arm of his black leather chair.
“Oh I left it out there by the door,” she got up and walked to go get her shopping bags. She came back with four bags and sat down in the same place, “Nothing much, a bra that will fit me,” she chuckled.
“What? But I was enjoying the too small bra’s,” he smiled teasingly.
Liz rolled her eyes, “I am now a c-cup I mean my god, it’s scary…” she peaked inside one more bag, “I brought a dress for our party, want to see it?”
“No, I want you to surprise me on the night,” he leaned back and rested his head on the back of the chair.
“Okay,” she said opening another bag, “Oh,” laughs, “I brought you some more Calvin Klein’s my best friend…” she smiled, “Such a wonderful place, all the pictures… all the…” she groaned and shook her head in delight.
Max shook his head, “Should I be worried?”
Liz laughed, “No honey I’m married to one of their models, you have nothing to be worried about,”
It was Max’s turn to roll his eye’s now.

Liz had left with Max that morning when he left for work. He had dropped her off at a shopping mall and she had shopped for many hours. After a long time she had decided she would come up to his office and take him out for lunch, that is if he was able to.

Max reached across his desk and picked up the opened packet of oreo’s that sat beside his computer, Liz laughed,
“Oreo’s? That’s what you eat here?” she put her bags down, “Maybe I should pack you lunch before you leave in the morning.”
Max laughed and peeled back some of the rapping and held them out to her, she took one out and then so did he.
“This isn’t all I eat, I just felt like eating them lately,” he smiled.
“You know what else I brought?” she asked.
“What?” Max swallowed his biscuit.
“A cot…” Liz bit her lip, “I couldn’t resist looking in the baby area! Do you have any idea how cute everything is? And I just had to buy something, I know I shouldn’t but I couldn’t help myself…”
“Is it being delivered?” he smiled, “I’m glad you brought it, what are we going to do when the baby comes? We really should be buying things a lot more.”
“We should…” Liz picked up another oreo.
“Yes we should,” He grinned, “Maybe we should both go find some little… tops and stuff,”
Liz laughed, “Okay then, that’s enough oreo’s for you,” she picked them up and put them in his draw, “So what was that lady doing in here?”
“I’m thinking of making a man named James Steven’s my partner,” he swallowed.
“What?” Liz frowned, “When did you decide this? When were you going to tell me?”
“Now,” he said, “I was going to ask you what you thought before doing it, don’t worry.”
Liz was still frowning, “That would mean giving half the company up?”
“Yeah, maybe.”
“Your willing to do that? Why? You’ve always been able to handle it fine…?” Liz was confused.
“I know but now that your pregnant and we’re married, I don’t want to be away very often, I don’t want to miss anything. You don’t want me to either do you? If I hand over half the company to someone I trust I will be home a whole lot more, heaps more in fact.”
Liz bit her lip, “This… James... guy are you sure you can trust him? You don’t know, he might take… everything you’ve worked for, this is a major thing Max.”
“I know that’s why I’m not sure yet, but I want to have more time and this is the only way I can think of to do that. He’s young and eager and will work hard, if anything like this Thailand trip comes up again he would be the one to go, not me.”
“Your young and hard working too! Max your not even thirty yet, you have so much life to come, most people don’t do this till their fiftieth. I don’t want to be the cause of this. Your so successful by yourself, everyone knows that.”
“Yes but your part of my life now too Liz. I don’t want to have my company before you and this way I won’t have to. You and our daughter are what matters not all this, I want to have a piece of mind and know that this place won’t crumble if I have to go watch my daughters soccer game!”
Liz nodded, “I know you do and I understand Max, but just don’t go making nay decisions like that straight away okay? I mean tell me first, I want to meet this guy before you sign off half of everything.”
“I wouldn’t make any decisions like that with out you Liz, you have nothing to worry about.”
“You sounded pretty smug on what you were talking about when I came in, I’m just worried. It’s not like I care about your money and everything, but about you, I don’t want you to throw away any opportunities and things because of me.”
“We’re in this together okay? I’m not going to do anything without talking to you and making sure everything is still secure and will be safe. I have the best lawyers and he won’t be able to ruin everything if he turns out to be dishonest,” He got up off his chair and stood in front of her, “Don’t worry about anything Liz, I’m not going to jeopardize anything important, I know what I’m doing.”

Max was the guy who had kept this place up and running since he was younger and he knew what was right, so Liz decided to just let him do what he thought was right. She just hoped he wasn’t screwing anything up because of her, she didn’t want to be the cause of anything bad. She trusted Max completely and she knew that when he said he wouldn’t do anything to jeopardize his career he was telling the truth.
She swallowed and nodded, “Okay,” she smiled, “If you know what your doing…I’m happy,” she threaded her fingers through his, “This James, he’s coming to the party?”
“He’s the guest of honor,” Max smiled, “Since your such a great judge of character you’ll be able to help me decide,” he leaned down and brushed his lips across hers, “Let’s go to lunch,” he said into her mouth.
“In a minute,” she kissed him back and tugged him closer, “I love you.”
He chuckled remembering Michael and Maria, “Thank you,” he said teasingly.
Liz laughed and whacked his arm; “Maria might let Michael get away with it but I sure as hell won’t Mr.” she pouted,
“I know,” he kissed her again, “I love you too,” he smiled.

************

“We leave America to come to Thailand and yet when we get here we continue to eat American food, why is that?” Max looked down at the burger on his plate.
Liz chuckled, “I feel like American food, it seems safe…” she ate a fry and nodded, “Fatty and greasy just how I like it.”
Max laughed.
“How long have you known James? Where did you meet him?” Liz asked. “That will help me decide whether I like him.”
Max sipped his cherry cola; “I met him when I first came here…”
“That’s not very long,” Liz said.
“Yeah,” Max agreed, “I met him at the office on the first day, he’s been really great so far.”
“How old is he?” Liz asked.
“Twenty-four,” Max picked at his burger and then realizing he was playing with his food he stopped.
“Is he Thai?” Liz picked up her burger,
“No he’s from Washington back home,” Max sipped his drink again, he didn’t feel like eating. “He graduated Boston University with degree’s in business and…”
“He certainly sounds impressive,” Liz swallowed her food, “Are you not hungry?”
“Not really,” he pushed his plate to the side, “His father died when he was nineteen and his mother lives back in Washington,”
“No father? Poor him…” Liz said sympathetically, “Does he have a girlfriend?”
Max thought for a second, “No he said he doesn’t want to get distracted from work, it’s his main priority right now.”
“If you didn’t want to eat here…” Liz wiped her mouth with the napkin, “Did you want to eat somewhere else?”
“No this place is fine, I’m just not very hungry,” Max reached across the table and took her hand for a second.
“Your not sick?” she asked starting to worry, “Maybe you should get the rest of the day off.”
Max chuckled, “No I’m fine just not hungry,” he smiled at his wife, “Stop worrying, it’s not good,” he ran his fingers over her wedding ring in adoration, “You know what he said to me?”
“What did he say to you love?” with her free hand she picked up her drink and sipped it.
“He said he wanted to be just like me,” Max found that very amusing and so did Liz, she nearly spat out her drink.
In between laughs Liz couldn’t help but say, “What a kiss ass!”
Max rolled his eyes, “Maybe he really does…?”
Liz stopped laughing; “Oh honey you don’t need an ego boost do you? You know you’re fabulous… or do you need me to prove that you’re fabulous again?” she squeezed his hand, “I’m sure he’s a great guy. He sounds a bit to enthused though, I’m sure you’re really his hero.”
“Hero?” Max sighed, “That’s pushing it.”
“Try tell him that,” Liz did a smile that was just for him and no one else in the whole world, “Come on let’s spend the rest of your lunch break looking at baby stuff.”

**************

“Michael,” Maria finished locking up the coffee shop and turned around to face him, “We need to talk.”
“We do?” he sighed.
“I know how you don’t like talking but I’m sorry but I need to know what your intentions with me are.” They started walking down the road, “You don’t expect to just drag me along and get a free fuck out of me whenever you want do you? Do you want this to become anything?”
“This?” Michael asked.
“This! Yes! US! Are we going to move past this level?” she rapped her arms around herself, “Do you love me at all?”
“Maria do we have to talk about this…?” he sighed again.
“Yes we do! It’s either talk to me or fuck off because I am getting older and I eventually would like to get married and move on to have children. You know the whole package!” she swallowed, “I’m not saying I want it now but I need to know your intentions, if you don’t see anything like that with me than I don’t want to waste my time any more.”
“You are only twenty-five,” he sighed, “Why do you care right now?”
“Because I am going to be twenty six and I don’t want to turn thirty and still be dating! Some people are fine with it but I am not.”
Michael pulled at the shirt around his neck, suddenly it felt very tight; “I don’t like talking about my feelings…”
“I know you don’t,” Maria stopped walking, “But please tell me… do you love me?”
Michael swallowed and looked at his feet.
Moment of truth
For both of them, “Yes, I love you,” Michael said not looking at her.
He decided he liked what he had going with Maria and he didn’t want her going anywhere any time soon, that was his type of love…
Maria sighed in relief, “You do?”
“Yeah, I do,” he looked up, “Don’t leave, I like having you around.”
Maria shook her head and laughed, “I guess that’s something…”
“It’s a lot coming from me,” he reached down and took her hand.
Maria looked down at their hands in amazement then back up at his eyes, “It is isn’t it?” she smiled, “Come on lover boy let’s go back to my place.”
Michael let out a howl, “Yeah baby,” he laughed.
Maria laughed as he led her down this street in quick pace.

*****************

“Nina come here darling,” Allen held her hands out to her daughter and slowly and shyly she headed over to her mom, “Meet Liz Nina, she lives next door.”
Liz smiled and held her hands out to the small girl, “Hey Nina, you’re very beautiful like your mother aren’t you?”
Nina blushed, “Dad says I’m like a little rose with thorns and will grow up to hurt him with them, just like mom.”
Liz’s eye’s widened and Allen looked at her daughter disapprovingly, “Don’t listen to your daddy, he’s a mean, mean man. You’re a Daisy.”
“Okay mom,” Nina bit her lip, “Are you going to have a baby?” she put her small hand on Liz’s growing belly,
“Yeah I am,” Liz smiled, “And she’s going to be a little girl just like you, maybe you will be able to see her when she is born.”
“Is she going to have chocolate hair like yours?”
“I think she might, her fathers hairs dark like mine too,” she touched the little girls nose, “You haven’t got red hair like your mothers, you’ve got blonde hair, is it like your fathers?”
“Yes, my daddy has yellow hair,” Nina laughed and started rubbing Liz’s belly, “You’re big and fat.”
Liz blushed, “Yeah I am right now aren’t I?” Allen laughed, “And I’m only going to get bigger! Can you believe that?”
“You are!” Nina cried, “Oh no!”
Liz couldn’t help but laugh at the young girl, “Tell me how old are you Nina?”
“I am this much,” she held up one hand and wiggled five fingers.
“Five!” Liz cried, “You’re getting old! Soon you’ll be as old as me.”
“No!” Nina exclaimed.
“No?” Liz asked.
“I’m going to stay this age forever,” she poked her tongue out.
“Oh okay then,” Liz nodded with a smile on her face, “Good luck with that.”
“Can I go back to my lego now Mom?” she put her hands on her mom’s knee’s and jumped up and down.
“Yeah you can go, do you want Lee to get you anything else to eat?”
“Carrot!” she cried before rubbing back over to her blocks.
“Carrot?” Allen said quizzically, “What a funny little girl.”
Liz watched Nina play with her toys content and anxious to have her own daughter. She couldn’t wait to see Max with their daughter; he would be so wonderful. It occurred to Liz that she had never seen him with children before, she assumed he was wonderful, he probably was.
“Your daughters wonderful,” Liz smiled.
“Thank you,” Allen chuckled, “So… Would you and Max like to come for dinner one night? Are you free… on Wednesday?”
“I’ll have to ask Max, I’ll call you?”
“Sure, if that’s not a good day, we’ll make arrangement’s for another time.”

When Liz got home she tried to remember if she had ever seen Max with children… she couldn’t recall any times…
She knew he would be home soon so she lay down on the black and white floor in front of the front door. He couldn’t miss her there.
Max with kids… Max with kids… Max with kids… Max with kids…AHA
Liz remembered one time finally!
It had been at the ice skating rink on Christmas eve, he had talked to a little boy into going out onto the ice because he was too scared and his mother was having trouble convincing him that he would be fine.
Liz had watched in awe as he put the woolly hat on the kid and said,
“I’m just as scared as you but don’t tell anyone…”
“You are?” the boy asked with wide eyes.
“Yeah I am, and if I can do you can do it to huh?”
“I guess…”
“Don’t you want to have fun with your friends?”
“Yes.”
“Well come on, we’ll do it together man,” he took the little boys hand and led him out onto the ice and they both stood there, “It’s not that bad is it?”
“Nope,”
“Yeah see, is she your friend?” Max pointed to a little girl standing a little bit away from them watching,
“Yes she is,” the little boy waved at the girl and she smiled brightly.
“Go over to her, she’s waiting for ya man,” Max smiled.
“Okay,” The boy walked/ skated over to her and the mother thanked him vigorously.
“It was my pleasure,” Max had said before going over to Liz, taking her hands and leading them out onto the ice.


“Miss?” Jane one of the maids stood at her side, “Miss you should get up off the floor, it’s not very good for you to be down there…”
“I’m fine,” Liz smiled, “But thank you.”
The girl was going to walk away but hesitated; “If Mr. Evan’s comes home and sees you there he might be mad…”
“Yeah well that’s his problem,” Liz laughed, “Don’t worry Jane, thank you for your concern, I’ll move soon.”
“Okay…” Jane walked away and Liz chuckled.

*************

Max sat up in bed wondering how he was going to get out of working on Liz’s birthday. There was no way he wanted to be anywhere but with her but he didn’t know how to get out of it…
Liz was asleep with her head on his lap and each puff of breath that came out of her mouth chilled his thigh. He couldn’t miss her birthday, she was very lenient with a lot of things but he knew she would not be happy if he was working on her birthday. He damned his stupid work, that was why he needed to employ James, but it was much more complicated then just signing a contract, there were lawyers and hours of discussing and agreements.
He just wanted to home with Liz, was that just too much to ask?

When he had started college and everything was going great he had worked hard and went to hardly any parties because he wanted to get down and do his best so he would be successful. Sure he had gone to the occasional party and had the occasional girl but he decided he had to focus on work and work only if he wanted to make it big. That’s why he never let himself fall in love before, too much was at stake.
His father had recognized that and when he had graduated his father had given him his business. Max was very glad about it all. James reminded him of himself.
Now Max didn’t care about work all he wanted was to see his daughter grow up and be with his wife, how his priorities had changed…
Liz sighed and rolled onto her back, she was still asleep.
He knew he couldn’t be with her twenty-four seven, things just didn’t work that way in reality but he got home so late and left so early and he was missing too much. It had to stop.
Tomorrow they would have their party and then two days later was Liz’s birthday. He would talk to James and Liz would meet him and hopefully they would all hit it off so Max could have more time.

Max looked down at his beautiful wife and brought his hand up to tuck her hair behind her ears. He had let himself fall in love and now look what had happened. Though he wouldn’t change the way things were for a second

FIVE

Liz had just met James and she knew instantly that he was not the type of person you trusted well enough to share your billion-dollar business with.
He was a tall man, a little taller than Max and had rusty blonde hair and a dark tanned face; His eyes were sparkling blue and he had one of those smiles that could so obviously be fake.

While Max talked to him and James talked to her, she felt uneasy, she knew that no matter what Max could not give half of his business to him. Maybe it was woman’s intuition, maybe it was some pregnancy psychic thing, she didn't know and frankly she did not care, all she knew is that she did not want her whole life to be put in his hands. No way

Max left to go get a drink and Liz was left alone with him, which was not good. She didn't feel safe, she didn't feel comfortable, in fact that was an understatement. She could make a list of things he made her feel safe and comfortable were not on that list. They wouldn't even be on the list maybe in a million years he'd make me feel that way.

Liz wanted him out of her house right now.

She questioned that he might just be making her feel that way because she objected to this whole thing to begin with but she decided she didn't mind that much. So it couldn't be that.

Liz excused herself and went in search for her night in shinning armor to help her but instead she was pulled into a group of flash business people who wanted to meet the woman who had stolen Max's heart. Liz wouldn't have minded talking to them normally, I mean this was her party, but right now she wanted to tell Max that she wanted james gone.

She couldn't get away from the flash, drinking, talking, and eager, people... they were everywhere. There was no escape. Letting out a big sigh she decided she would introduce herself and met every single person in there if it meant at some point she could be alone with her husband. Was that too much to ask? Obviously
Liz stood and met at least seventeen people, Tammy, Fay, Cookie, Ray, Brian, Tom, Greg... the list went on. And on And on
Was a pregnant woman supposed to be under this much stress? It made her tired, she felt the aching need to lie down and cuddle into a ball.

Her journey to find Max began again and she pushed through the mingling bodies to what seemed like no end. Before she knew it an hour and a half had passed and it was eleven pm exactly. She knew because she was standing in front of the big clock wishing maybe Max would happen to walk past it.

The house had been set up wonderfully for the party, there were flower arrangements everywhere and candles and a band...

Liz was wearing a burgundy dress with a crew cut front and her diamond necklace from Max. He said she looked stunning, but he always said that and Liz didn't know when he was telling the truth. Max was wearing a dark suit...

Aha! She saw him heading towards her and opened her mouth to say thank god when he was snatched away by some man that was short and had brown hair.

She would have been annoyed if Max hadn't been ecstatically happy to see this person, in fact he looked shocked, then surprised and then ecstatically happy. Liz watched as they hugged and wondered who this man was.

Max looked up and caught her eyes and put his arm around the man's shoulder, they made their way over to her and Liz let out a sigh of relief, FINALLY!

Right there and then she decided this party was not fun and she did not want to have another one.
At least not while she was pregnant.
And not while James was here, he was bad, he had caused this to be a bad night.
When Max reached her he kissed her, "Where'd you disappear to?" he smiled adoringly then turned to face the short guy.
He introduced her as his wonderful and beautiful wife and the guy’s face just jumped in shock, "Your married?" he cried.

Liz waited patiently to be introduced to this, man.
Kyle, his name was Kyle Valenti. Was she supposed to know him...?
Kyle, Kyle, Kyl... He was a friend of Max's from collage, she remembered. She grinned proud of herself, wasn't she just the best wife in the world for remembering so many goddamn names?

He had shared a dorm with Max and Michael and they had graduated together, once she remembered one small detail all of it came to her, she was very proud of herself.
She held her hand out and said how nice it was to meet him when he snatched her into a big fierce hug, "Hug me! We’re pretty much family!" he said.

Now this was a nice man. After her horrible run with James she glad to meet someone nice.

Max laughed and pulled her away from Kyle, "Don't kill her," he said sarcastically, "She's fragile,"
Am I? Wondered Liz, right now she felt fragile. Right now she'd be anything he wanted her to be.
"I'm not going to kill her," Kyle smiled warmly, "It's great to meet you Liz, Max I can't believe your married!"
“And I can’t believe you’re in Chiangmai,” Max said. Liz was confused now,
She knew that Max and Kyle hadn't seen each other in just over a year and a half...
"It's been too long, we have a lot of catching up to do my man," Kyle said.
Liz suggested they go take a seat somewhere and talk and when Max studied her face and said how tired she looked he agreed and said it was a good idea.

They took a seat in the lounge where a few people were sitting and drinking a little bit away from them.
Kyle explained what he was doing in Thailand. Something about finishing up in Australia and heading over here to check the connection with the new store because Thailand was at a business peak right now?

He had heard about this party from a few business partners of his and when he had found out it was Max Evan's house he been very shocked and hurried here quickly, eager to see his old friend again. What a night to come too, Liz had said.
She suggested he stay here instead of a hotel, "You can keep me company and since your such a good friend of Max's..."
"And yours! I'm your newest friend," Kyle smiled, "Na I don't think I should stay here though. I don’t want to impose and I just got here and we haven’t seen each other in ages…”
Liz told him they'd love it if he would.
Kyle asked if they were sure and Max and Liz said that of course they were.
That was the last thing Liz remembered because she fell asleep with her head on Max's shoulder.


In the morning she woke up and sighed, she was annoyed at herself for falling asleep during the party, it was rude of her. It was kind of like she had bailed from the party because she wasn't having fun and that was bad because it had been her idea in the first place.
Max's arms were rapped around her waist so she found it hard to roll onto her side but she finally did and the clock on the night stand read seven-forty three.
Liz decided she didn't feel very well today, it was kind of like she had a hang over except there had been no alcohol and there had been no getting drunk.

When her stomach started to churn she decided that was her cue to get up before she blew chunks all over her sleeping husband. She didn't know how he'd feel if he woke up to that but she knew she'd be fairly pissed… or at least disgusted.
A few minutes later Liz was lying on the bathroom floor thinking about how nice the ceiling was in the bathroom. It was kind of whitey- bluey....

"Liz," Max walked in rubbing his eyes and squatted down in front of her, "Why are you lying on the floor, you know I don't like it how you do that..." he tucked her hair behind her ears, "Are you feeling okay?"
"I feel better now," she sighed. She didn't deserve this, she didn't get drunk why should she feel like she had a hangover! No alcohol and yet here she was. Damn the world.
Max helped her up off the floor and while he was flushing the toilet Liz rushed over to the basin to brush her teeth. There was nothing worse than the smell or taste of your mouth after you have thrown up.
A very wise woman named Claudia had told her that after Liz's very first drunk/ hangover experience.

Liz was not drunk.

"Do you want a shower or a bath?" Max got her s towel and walked over to her,
"I wt ah sher bt I cat hld mylf uph fr mch lgr," who did she expect to understand that? it was not easy to talk with a mouth full of tooth paste.
Max laughed, "What was that?" he pulled her hair away for her neck and kissed her neck.
Liz shrugged him off and then spat out her tooth paste, "No I smell, don't come near me..." she washed out her mouth and splashed her face with cold water, "I don't want to repulse you completely."
Max just shook his head with a smile on his face,
"Don't shake your head at me, I feel like a big crap ball," she dried her face.

"Shower or bath?" Max repeated rubbing his head.
"As I said a few seconds ago," she sighed, "I want a shower but I can't hold myself up for much longer."
"Oh," Max said, "See I never got that," he was so incredible, Liz wanted to hug and kiss him forever and never stop.
"Okay that can be arranged," Max said, "I'll run you a bath and use that portable shower head thing attached to the wall..."
Liz nodded, "Okay you do that and I'm going to..." she slipped down onto the floor and rested her head on the cupboards, "Sit here and wait."
Max bent down and kissed her, "Okay babe," he smiled.

After the bath was hot and bubbly and set up for her, Max went and go her some clean clothes for the day and anything else she may need.
He put them on top of the bench for her and Liz took off her under wear and hopped into the water.
"Oh my god," she groaned, "That is so so good," she closed her eyes and let the warmth rap around her, "Oh thank you to the person who invented hot water. Oh and you Max, Thank god for you."

Max laughed and hopped in next to her, "Come here," he rapped his arms around her and she huddled at his side, "You feel better?" he kissed the top of her head and brought Liz's legs up to rest over his thighs.
"Hmm," she closed her eyes and rested her head against his chest, "I love you," she sighed happily.
"I love you," he put some bubbles on top of her head,
After a few silent minutes Liz sucked in a breath and said, "You know what would make this moment even more wonderful?"
"What?" Max asked.
"Chocolate," Liz grinned, "Lot's and lot's, a big block or caramello chocolate."
Max laughed.

************

"What do you mean?" Max was slightly confused by what Liz was saying about James.
Liz sighed, "You can't give him half the business Max, I just got this feeling... he can not be trusted."
They were having breakfast at the dinning table, Max was at the head of the table and Liz sat on his left. Liz reached down and ran her fingers over the hand Max had on the side of his drink, "Please, don't give it to him, I know it will turn out bad I know it."

"How can you know it?" Max asked, "You spent two minutes with him."
"Do you trust me?" she ran her fingers over his wedding ring, "I know a 'feeling' isn't much to go on but it was so strong Max, he just... isn't the type you trust with everything."
Max sighed, "But..."
"No Max please," Liz bit her lip, "Please, forget about him... Make Kyle your partner,"
"What?" Max exclaimed, "Kyle? Liz what the hell are you talking about?"
"Please don't yell," Liz said.
"I'm not yelling,"
Liz shook her head, "I know you trust me."
"I do trust you but Liz can you hear yourself? Kyle has a job! He is the manager of a successful software company and he has his own life, James is a hard working guy and he is perfect for the job..."
"No he's not!" Liz said getting annoyed, "I know he is going to stab you in the back if he gets this! Come on I know you must have some doubts..."
Max swallowed, "Well it was his idea in the first place..."

"Wha...?" Liz gaped at him, "What did you just say? Oh my god," she held her hand over her mouth, "Max could you be more dense?" she cried, "He came up with the whole business partnership thing? AND YOU SAID YES?"
SHe could not believe what she was hearing.
"I didn't say yes I said maybe!" Max said.

"STILL!" she cried, "You are crazy, you are crazy, you never told me that it was his idea!"
"Liz!" he yelled, "Stop insulting me will you?"
Liz sighed, "Sorry I didn't mean I'm just... oh Max you can't do this, you know you can't. Kyle is one of your best friends you can trust him. He is an awesome guy, I mean I could tell he was trustworthy last night."
"I don't think he'd say yes," Max sipped his coffee, "He..."
"I bet you he would," Liz said, "I know he would, it is such a great opportunity and he would take it. He would be crazy not to."
"Liz..."
"Max, honey, love, my everything," She leaned across the table and took his face in her hands, "Follow your heart babe, okay? It will tell you not to trust James, he is nice on the outside but I am telling you he will change as soon as you've signed the piece of paper."

Max blinked.

"I love you and I am only looking out for you and me and our daughter, okay? I don't want our lives to be in that mans hands, he... scared me, I felt uncomfortable and I... I... maybe you shouldn't give up half the business... I mean I don't want you to d..." Max cut her off,
"Stop," he said, "Stop this right now I can't listen to anymore, I don't want to."
"Tell me," Liz kissed his lips, "Tell me your not going to give James half the business."
Max looked down at their hands clasped together on the table.
"Max," Liz said letting go of his hand and cupping his cheeks again, "Promise me."
Max swallowed then said, "Okay I promise you," he felt like such a baby being told what to do by his wife. He told her that.

Liz laughed, got up off her seat and went and sat on his knee, "I tell you to do this one thing and suddenly you feel like a baby?" she kissed his lips, "Don't feel like that, I'm just giving you a little push in the right direction..."
"More like a shove," Max smirked.
Liz chuckled, "Okay a shove..."
"Actually a push ove..."
"OKAY I GET THE PICTURE!" Liz cried, "I'm sorry but woman know these things, that's why the saying says: behind every great man there's a great woman..."
Max laughed, "Sure..."

Liz kissed him again and then played with his tie, "Just think about the Kyle thing okay?"
"Okay I'll think about it but I'm not promising anything..."
"Except not saying yes to James,"
"Yes I'll promise you that but that's it... you better be right," he sighed.
"I am right, you'll see," she kissed him then got up off his lap and took her seat again.

"Now," Liz said putting her chin up, "We are having dinner at Allen's house tonight, we have to be there at eight-thirty be home early will you?"
Max smirked, "I will be, don't worry."
"Good boy," she said sarcastically, "And my birthday is on Friday, my first one with out Maria by my side..."
"I have not forgotten," Max smiled,

"Good morning," Kyle walked in wearing nothing but boxer shorts and took a seat at the table on Max's right, "How's all?"
"Have you grown up at all since college?" Max asked.
"Do I seem like I have?"
Liz stifled a laugh.

SIX

A few hours after Max had gone to work Liz found herself sun bathing outside in her bikini and sunglasses. After putting an adequate amount of sunscreen on she picked up her cell phone and dialed Maria’s number.
“Hello?” Maria said sleepily.
“Hey Maria,” Liz shifted the chair back so she could sit up slightly.
“Oh hey babe how’s it going? What was the par-tay like?”
“Oh well you know how I told you about James? Total ass, there is no way we are giving anything to him. I can’t believe Max even thought about sharing the business with him.”
“You set him straight no doubt?” Maria laughed.
“Yes, Max promised me he wouldn’t give up half the business to him,” Liz sipped her drink, “And you know what Max told me this morning…”
“Hi,” Kyle came outside and took a seat on the sun bed chair next to hers, Liz pulled her rob over her a little bit,
“Don’t mind me,” he laughed, “I’m only here to relax and talk,” Liz blushed.
“Liz? Who is that…?” Maria asked.
“Oh, that’s Kyle he’s a friend of Michael and Max’s,” Liz said,
“Who’s that?” Kyle asked.
“Say hello,” Liz held the phone out to Kyle, “She’s Michael girlfriend, Maria.”
“Michael has a girlfriend?” Kyle asked,
“Yes he does,” Maria said, “So you know Max and Michael?”
“Yeah we all went to collage together,”
“What do you look like?” Maria asked, “Are you good looking?”
“I like to think so,” Kyle grinned.
“Are you better looking then Michael?”
“Oh definitely,” Kyle laughed.
“Michael I’m breaking up with you!” Maria cried, “So when you coming to New York?” She laughed.
Kyle rolled his eyes, “What did she say?” Liz asked.
Maria told Michael Kyle was on the phone, “It was nice meeting you Kyle, I’ll met you some day?”
Michael tried to get the phone off Maria but she held it tight,
“Yeah me too, see ya,” Kyle said, Michael got the phone and said, “Kyle?! What are you doing talking to Maria?”

Liz lay back down as Kyle talked to Michael and when he was finished he handed the phone back o Liz, “Sorry I kind of…”
“No it’s fine,” Liz smiled, “Yeah Maria it’s me again.”
“Kyle’s cool, so he’s staying with you?”
“Yeah he’s keeping me company,” Liz said, “I’ll call you later okay?”
“Yeah what ever, I have other things to do. See ya,”
Liz hanged up and put her phone down, “So Kyle tell me about Max in college.”


When Max came home at six thirty Kyle was in the kitchen teaching Liz how to make bread for pizza bases.
“Yeah just stretch it out and if it’s like rubber it’s nearly done…” Kyle instructed.
Max put his keys and wallet down on the table and watched them. They hadn’t noticed him yet.
Kyle was standing beside Liz as she needed the dough with her hands, he instructed her and motioned with his hands, occasionally helping her out.
Max should have been happy they were getting on but being a guy he was instantly jealous. He didn’t want Kyle to start liking Liz. Liz was his!
He knew he was being silly and he knew that Liz would never do anything behind his back but his stomach still churned and his jaw still tightened.
Liz looked up and noticed him, the familiar smile spread across her face and she skipped over to him and threw her arms around him. Careful to keep the dough on her fingers away from his suit she said, “Kyle’s showing me how to make bread,” she kissed his lips, “How was your day?”
He rapped his arms around her waist and kissed her back, “It was dull and slightly uneventful,” he smiled, “How was yours?”
“Kyle told me all about what you got up to in college,” she nudged him with her elbow then stepped away from him, “Didn’t you Kyle?” she laughed.
“Oh no,” Max smiled.
“Oh yes,” Kyle grated the cheese, “I may have said too much,”
“I’ll kill you,” Max ran his hand through his hair,
Liz chuckled, “Don’t worry, I only heard the embarrassing stories, you don’t need to kill him…” she walked over to the oven and opened it, “We have made two other pizza’s you have to try some…”
“I thought we were eating at Allan’s tonight?” Max took off his jacket and put it on the back of a chair,
“We are but that’s not till eight thirty, this is just a snack…” Liz tried to pull out a pizza but yelped and jumped back with the burn she had just gotten, “shit,” she groaned.
Max looked over at her, “What’s wrong?”
“I burnt myself,” she sucked on the red skin on her palm.
“Are you okay?” Kyle asked.
“I’ll be fine,” Liz winced.
“Liz babe put it under water,” Max walked over and asked to see it, she held her hand out, “ice?” she asked.
Max got her some ice and she sat down on the stool Max had put his jacket on and held it to her burn. "Better?" Max asked. He got the pizzas out of the oven and put them down on the metal area of the bench, "Looks good," he said.
"They should look good they took us forever to make," Kyle finished the last pizza and put it in the oven where the other two had just been,
"Kyle talked to Maria today," Liz laughed, "She asked if he was better looking then Michael." Max rolled his eyes, "Of course she would," he smirked.
He cut two pieces off the pizza and put them on a plate, "Kyle do you want some?" he licked his finger, "It's yum," he chuckled.
"I'll get my own," Kyle opened the refrigerator and got out two bears, "Yes Maria is a weird girl, how'd Michael met her?"
Liz gasped, "I never told you? Maria's my best friend," she chuckled, "me and her shared an apartment together until I came here, we have been best friends since birth!"
"Oh," Kyle chuckled, "I should have guessed that."
Max sat down on a stool and put the pizza in front of Liz, she thanked him. "I remember this one time," Kyle got his pizza and went and took a seat near them. "When we were in college and Michael was dating that girl... tall, blonde long hair, what was her name again?" he stopped to think of it. "I can't remember, anyway they were getting serious and he asked to have the apartment to himself for one night and I had to drag you to a party."
"Drag?" Liz asked.
"Max wasn't a party animal..."
"Unlike you," Max said.
"Yeah," Kyle laughed, "I love my parties. Anyway, I dragged you to this party and got you totally wasted."
"Oh no not that time," Max said, "You have got to be kidding me..."
"No way!" Kyle laughed. "You hooked up with some chick and you were about to take her out back when you saw Michael's girl with some guy. We were totally pissed and of course it wasn't Michael's girl but hey we didn't know that..."
"Oh no!" Liz cried.
"Me and Max bet the shit out of the guy with her and then went home to make sure Michael was okay. When we opened the front door we found Michael and his girlfriend butt naked and going at it on the couch. We both let out this big OOPS and then cracked up laughing.
Michael did not find it funny at all so he got up, butt naked and walked up to us and screamed, 'get the fuck out!' He pushed us out the door and slammed it closed on out faces."
Liz doubled over, "What happened then?"
"We slept in the hall," Max chuckled, "Right outside the door."
"You’re kidding," Liz said,
"No way," Kyle laughed, "It was so funny, Michael was so pissed at us in the morning and we just mumbled sorry and collapsed on our beds."
"We had the worst hangovers..."
Liz laughed.
"Those were good times," Kyle ate his pizza, "What about you Liz? You must have had some bad or good experiences no?"
Liz shook her head, "No I'm not telling any of mine to you, Max knows most of them but no one else can know..."
"Oh come on," Kyle said.
"Okay, okay..." Liz turned bright red then said, "I scored a chick once..."
"What?" Kyle exclaimed.
Max gaped at her, "Yes... What!" he yelled.
Liz blushed some more, "If it's any constellation we were drunk and experimenting and no it was not nice… especially in the morning. Girls just... not for me," she chuckled.
"Oh my god," Kyle said, "Oh my god you screwed a chick! That is... wow,"
"Shh it's supposed to be a secret," Liz looked away from them both, "After that night we never talked to each other again, we were so embarrassed... I was just... I couldn't believe it!"
"What was it like?" Kyle gaped at her.
"Kyle!" Max elbowed him, "That is my wife you’re talking too!"
Kyle laughed, "So, your wife fucked a chick! You can't tell me you’re not the slightest bit interested to know..."
"Even if I was you can't know!" Max said,
Liz laughed at them, "Why do guys find it such a turn on when two chicks...?"
"Because it's... cool!" Kyle laughed.
"Enough!" Liz cried, "Let's change the subject,"
"No. Tell us what it was like,"
"No Kyle," Max and Liz both said.


Liz and Max sat at the table at Allan’s house waiting patiently for dinner to be served.
Allan’s daughter came up to the table and sat down, “Hello,” she said smiled sweetly.
“Hi,” Max smirked.
“What’s your name?” She clapped her hands together.
“Nina this is Max…” Liz chuckled, “Remember I told you about him…”
“The one with the dark hair like yours?” she bit her lip and made popping noises,
“Yeah,” Liz laughed.
Nina looked at Max and said, “You’re having a baby girl just like me.” Her voice was loud and high pitched.
“Yeah I am,” Max chuckled.
"Having fun?" Allan took a seat at the table and put her napkin on her lap.
Liz smiled at her, "Of course,"
"Steven will be out in a few minutes but you know how he is, probably won't even come down..."
"I heard that," Her husband walked in and snarled at her, "Are you trying to make me sound bad?"
"Of course not," Allan muttered.
Liz bit her bit lip and glanced at Max, he raised his eyebrows.
"I have met Max but I don't believe I've met you... Liz was it?" Steven stared at her.
Liz cleared her throat, "Yeah I'm Liz, it's nice to meet you."
"The pleasures mine I assure you," he smiled.
Liz looked down at her plate and shuddered. He should not be flirting with her right in front of his wife and in front of Max. He shouldn't even be doing it at all.
"I can't believe you..." Allan spat out. Almost on cue, Liz thought.
Max had his hand on her knee and was stroking her skin comfortingly.
"You just flirted with Liz in front of not only me but her husband! What is wrong with you? You are so embarrassing!"
"I didn't flirt with her!" He yelled back.
"Yes you did!" she yelled, "Oh the pleasures all mine," she mocked him.
Liz and Max sat there in shock, should they leave or what? They didn't know what to do. Nina stood up on her chair, "Stop yelling! Mommy! Daddy!"
"Go to your room," Steven said.
"Don't tell her to go to her room, she didn't do anything wrong," Allan cried.
Max swallowed, "Um maybe we should get going..." he interjected.
"Yes maybe you should... god I'm so sorry Liz, Max I didn't mean for this to happen... I told him to behave but he never listens to me."
Liz opened her mouth to say something but Steven's mad voice stopped her.
"You cow! You make me sound like a horrible person! Max Liz you don't have to leave let's just sit down and enjoy the meal..."
"No go, you don't want to stay here with him..."
Liz and Max glanced at each other... what now?
"Excuse me?" Steven exclaimed, "With him?!"
"Yes you heard me, I'll take you to the door you guys," She got up from her chair and so did Max and Liz.
"But the night's not over," Steven said.
"Ah yes it is," Liz said.
They got to the door and Allan apologized again, "I am so sorry, I am really embarrassed!"
"Don't worry," Liz hugged her, "You're going to be okay?"
"Yeah I'll be fine, see ya later."
"Bye," Max said.
Max and Liz walked down the driveway and Max rapped his arm around her shoulder, "That was..." he started.
"Do you think she'll be okay? I mean they were yelling at each other pretty ba..."
He kissed her forehead, "I'm sure it was just an argument Liz, just because it happened once doesn't mean it happens all the time."
Liz sighed, she didn't think this was just a one time thing, "You've met him before what was he like then?"
"He was fine, normal..." Max brought her closer to him,
Liz swallowed, "Are you sure, I mean..."
"Liz," he sucked in a breath, "Don't worry."
Liz bit her lip, "I'm just worried about her..."
"I know," he kissed her forehead, "But it's none of our business..."
"I guess," Liz sighed.
They reached home and walked inside. Kyle was in the entertainment room watching DVD's in hid boxer shorts.
When they found him he said, "That was quick."
"Yeah change of plans, You okay in here?" Max asked.
"I'm fine, you have the sweetest collection going on here, I could be up all night watching all these."
Liz smiled, "Yeah I know I spent a whole day... anyway I'm just going to go for a swim then go to bed,"
"Night!" Kyle said.
Max walked with her to their bedroom, "Are you going to come...?" she asked.
"I have some work I need to do, I have to get it done anyway so..." he kissed her, "I'll just be at the desk in the next room."
"Okay then," Liz frowned.
Liz got changed and went for a swim by herself. She wasn't in there long, she just swam a couple of laps then went and had a shower to get the chlorine off her body.
By the time she had gone for a swim and had a shower it was around eleven and Max was still in the next room working hard.
Liz didn't want to go to bed without him.
She walked through the French doors that split their room into three and found him sitting at the desk where he said he would be, working hard.
She tip toed up to him, naked and beautiful and spun his chair around. She straddled his lap and pressed her lips to his.
Max moaned and put his hand on her shoulders, he pushed her away just a tiny bit, “Hmm as much as I would love to,” he kissed her, “Make love to you I really need to get this done babe.”
“You know what I love…” she took his hand and brought it up to cup her breast, “Dot it.”
He groaned, “Liz…”
“Work,” she nibbled on his bottom lip, “Can wait, my love.”
He ran his fingers over her nipple and heard her husky voice say, “What do you love.”
Max being totally forgotten, he bit her neck and said, “Your soft lips on me…”
She smiled teasingly and started unbuttoning the bottom of his shirt, she slipped her hands inside and ran her hands along his muscular body, and Max watched her with dazed and lust-filled eyes.
She got up off his body and got down on the floor, she unbuttoned his pants and pulled him out, Max closed his eyes and his head drifted back. She ran her hands up and down him, “I love you,” she said.
Max sucked in a breath, he could not reply.
Liz brought her lips up him and Max jumped. She brought her tongue out of her mouth and ran it up and down –
Max groaned, “Oh Liz…” his breath quickened.
Liz sucked on him and rubbed her breasts on him and when he finally released she watched his head go back in satisfaction. She loved bringing satisfaction to him.
He let out a rugged breath, his hand sought out hers and when he found it he pulled her up to her feet.
She sat down on him again and rapped her legs around his waist. Her arms rapped her arms around his neck, “Would you rather be doing work right now?” she asked placing kisses all over his face.
Max shook his head, “Screw work,” he put his arm under her bottom and carried her back to the bedroom.


Liz lay on her back as the doctor rubbed the clear cream over her belly. Her eyes were half closed.
Once he was done with the cream he reached for the scanning machine and brought it up to her skin, ‘It might be a little cold…”
Liz jumped, “A little?” she sucked in a breath.
He had the screen on and the little black, white and gray smudges of baby came to the screen. Liz gasped, “Is that her?” her hand was clenched in Max’s. He sat silently by her side with his lips pressed to her forehead.
“That is her, yes…” he pointed to the pulsing area, “Right there.”
Max let out a small sigh.
“So she’s fine? I mean there’s nothing wrong… abnormal?” Liz watched the screen with wide eyes.
“So far so good,” the doctor smiled, “Oh you see there?”
Liz and Max nodded,
“That’s her head.”
“Really?” Max asked.
“Really, really,” The doctor loved watching first time parent’s as they sat together staring wide-eyed at the screen in front of them. It made his job worth while. It reminded him of when his first child was born and he was in the same situation.
“It’s amazing,” Liz sighed, “I can’t believe that’s… inside of me.”
“Hmm,” Max agreed.
“Find it hard to believe you created that?” The doctor asked. Liz and Max nodded, “Just think only a little while till she’s out. Are you nervous?”
“Yes,” Liz smiled.

SEVEN

“No more to the side…” Liz pointed, “No, the left, a little more…”
Max sighed, “Liz we have been doing this for hours,” he put the draws where they were and put his hands on his hips, “The draws were fine in the last three places we put them, can’t we just leave them here?”
Liz bit her lip, “No I don’t think I could sleep with them there, put them back to the right…”
Max sighed and did as he was told.
Liz was nesting. If Max weren’t getting exhausted from moving everything around he would have thought it was cute but right now he was slowly loosing his patience.
“Okay lave it there, that’ll do,” Liz tapped her fingers on her chin, “Wait no a little more…”
“Liz!” Max sighed.
“Okay, okay sorry!” Liz threw up her hands, “I hate being like this, but it’s not my fault” she walked over and grabbed the water bottle she had gotten Max a little earlier. She handed it to him; “Do you need to rest now?”
He smiled, “I was just going to ask you the same thing,” he whipped his hand across his forehead and wiped the sweat away. He gulped down all the water an put the empty bottle down.
“I’m not tired,” Liz said sitting down on the end of the bed,
Max bit his lip, “Liz I have to tell you something that I know your going to be annoyed about…” he opened the draws and pulled out a gray T-shirt.
“Okay I’m ready fire away,” Liz said.
“I have to work on your birthday,” he said. He pulled the shirt on over his bare chest and then ran his hand through his hair.
Liz let out a breath, she hadn’t thought about that. It never occurred to her that she might have to be alone…
“I’m sorry, I will go in the morning and try and be back quickly…” he walked up to her,
She looked down at her legs, “I guess I should have known…”
“I have tried and tried to get out of it…” he knelt down in front of her.
“You don’t need to explain yourself I know,” she stood up, “I always do,” she picked up the bottle, “I’ll go get you some more water.”
“Liz…”
She opened the bedroom door…
“I don’t want any more water,” he clenched his jaw.
“Well I’ll have it then,” she walked out of the room and down the hall.
“Come back here,” Max got up off the floor and went after her. Liz did not reply. “Liz!” Max caught up with her and grabbed her arm, “You have every right to be mad…”
“Yeah I do!” she snarled and shoved his arm away.
Max stepped away from her and Liz hurried away.
As quickly as she was gone she was back again. “Look I know it’s not your fault that you have to work and I don’t want to take it out on you so just… back off until my hormones, my stupid god damn hormones…” she gritted her teeth. “GOD!” she stomped her feet in annoyance and whacked the nearest thing to her. “I hate this!” she cried.
Max didn’t know what to do so he shoved his hands in the pockets on his jeans and stared at the ground. His chin crinkled as he thought of something to say to make it better.
Liz sat down on the floor, “I want to have this baby already, Lorry get out of there will you!” she tapped her stomach.
Max couldn’t stop the smile from spreading over his face, “Babe,” he sat down on the floor in front of her and stretched his legs out around her, “There’s only a month and a few weeks to go.” He rubbed her thighs, “You know I want that baby out of you too,” he smirked, “I bet she’ll be as beautiful as you.”
Liz looked down at his hands as they rubbed her skin, “You do?”
“Of course,” he pecked her lips, “You know,” he said, “With every bit of bad news there comes some good news too…”
“Oh yeah?” Max started kissing her neck.
“I decided,” he breathed on her soft skin, “to ask Kyle to be my partner…”
Liz’s eye’s widened and she gaped at him, “Really?” she cried.
“I don’t know if he’ll say yes but it’s worth a try…” Max had spent a lot of time thinking about it and Liz was right, Kyle was someone he could trust and he was a good friend, what more could they ask for?
Also the due date of the baby was getting closer by the second and if he missed something important he could never forgive himself.
“Oh!” Liz rapped her arms around his neck, “He’ll say yes! He will! I know it!” she kissed his lips, “That’s so great Max, this all like one big sign! Kyle being here… I know it, you’ll see everything will work out fine.”
Max smiled, “Your so sure of yourself,”
“I am!” she got up off the floor, “Come on let’s go tell him now!”
“What?” Max frowned, “No. Now is not a good time, I’ll talk to him on Sunday or something.”
“Why then?” Liz helped him up, “Why not now?”
“Because I don’t want to do it here, I want it to be alone with him and….”
“You don’t want me there?” Liz frowned, “well… I guess I can understand that.”
Max sighed, “Come on let’s go.”
“Where are we going?” Liz asked.
“I don’t know, let’s go for a drive.”


“Happy,” Max kissed Liz’s lips, “Birthday, too you,” he smiled, “Happy birthday,” he pulled off her underwear, “Too you.”
“Happy birthday,” he brought two fingers up to rub her, “dear Liz,” she moaned, “Happy birthday, to you.”
Max had half of his body on top of hers and he was naked, really, naked. Liz was now too.
She had woken up to Max placing kisses all over her face. What a great way to wake up on your birthday!
She had her eyes closed as he ran his fingers around and around making her flesh melt and pulsate. “Hmm,” she arched into his hand and brought her hands up behind her head to hold onto the headboard. Max was very careful with her since she was so pregnant and so big. He worked himself around her stomach, “Babe, open your eyes,” he kissed her parted lips.
Her dazed eyes slowly opened and she stared into his dark pools, “You know that today is your day so you get what ever you want.”
“What ever, I… want?” her eye’s seemed to darken, “Anything?”
“Anything…” Max dipped his finger inside her and twirled it around, she could feel his arousal pressed into her side. She smiled and closed her eyes again, “Keep going.”
Max brought his mouth down to press his lips to her breast and he began his sweet torture to her skin and nipples. “Don’t stop,” Liz’s breath became more rapid and just the thought of her and Max like this made her feel things… that were unbelievable…
Max sat up and peeled the blankets away from their bodies. He pushed them down to the end of the bed and then turned back to her; he slipped her legs apart with one hand that was slowly making it’s way back up her inner thigh…
“Stop teasing me,” Liz breathed out, “please… keep going!”
Max smirked and lay down at her side, he pressed his arousal into her hip bone and his face into her right breast, “You,” he breathed running his tongue over her hard and pointy nipple, “are so beautiful to me,” he sang in a breathy whisper that made Liz shudder. He repeated what he had just sung again and brought his hand up to rub her heat again, Liz’s eye’s were fused closed and her mouth parted as raspy breaths escaped it. Max’s left arm was down rubbing her and his other arm went around and under her shoulders… Liz’s arms were still gripping the headboard and moving up and down with her body. Max moved his body up and down against her side and rubbed and rubbed… his lips pleasured her nipples and sent delight and warmth through ever inch of her.
“Oh!” Liz cried as she felt the familiar heat that she dreamed about when she wasn’t feeling it. She pictured it building up and wanting release inside of her… she thought about what this scene would look like from a third persons point of view right now. That’s all it took… there was something about watching her and Max together that just… excited her, thrilled her through all her senses. If there was a mirror on the ceiling right now she would be watching them… that made her breath come in louder and harder puffs.
She could picture the heat as if it were an approaching wave coming up to the shore… except it was red and vibrant… inviting.
Her leg spasm and her lower stomaching twitching made her know this was it. She opened her mouth wide in silent scream as her lower half twitched and felt the wonderful pleasure of a climax that no one could bring as nicely as Max Evan’s could.
The wave crashed as it reached the shore and her fingers clawed at the board above her head. Her body arched up a little and she let her breathing catch up with the rest of her body. Her heart pounded in her chest and the throbbing in her lower stomach begged for more.
Max brought his fingers away and ran then up her stomach, leaving a glistening trail behind, he found her so enticing and when he watched her come it was almost as good for him as it was for her. But nothing could compare to the feeling of coming inside of her hot and inviting center.
Liz let go of the headboard and brought them down to touch Max’s face. He lifted his head to look her in the eyes and they shared a passionate kiss that was filled with everything they felt for each other, love… the stuff of heaven all combined into one.
“What are your dreams?” Max spoke into her mouth, “What do you dream about?”
Liz opened her eyes and her heart threatening to explode said, “My life is the dream….”
Max felt so much love for this petite girl in his arms that he didn’t know what to do with himself, “What to do,” he whispered, “I am done for… eternally…”
“I should hope so,” Liz took his hand in hers and pushed them back down to her heat, “Again?” she blinked.
Max raised his eyebrows, “What?” she asked; “Unlike you I don’t need a rest period.”
Max blushed and sat up, “I want to make love to you,” he was dying to have his release and he wanted it to be inside of his wife. Liz got up and smiled, “Sure thing lovely,” she pressed her nose to his, “I love you.”
She straddled him and pressed her breasts to his chest… she loved that feeling. So did Max. His hands came around her waist and down to her bottom, he lifted her up and slowly and lovingly pushed himself deep within her.
Liz ran her hands up Max’s chest and then over his shoulders, they stared into each other’s eyes and shared a tasty kiss… Liz rested her forearms on Max’s shoulders and loosely clasped her hands together behind his neck.
Max’s hands remained on Liz’s behind but not for long, he brought them up her back urging her chest and stomach closer to his, her hard nipples pointed into his chest slowly driving all his senses insane.
Unable to take the delay any longer Max’s hand went down again and gripped her thighs, he lifted her up on him and then pushed her back down again.
The feeling was unbelievable for Max, the feel of her all around him and pulsing with warmth… he didn’t think there was any other feeling that could compare to that.
Though they made love quite frequently Max believed that making love to Liz was just a bonus level to being with her. It was an extra to loving her.
Liz lifted her body up and he pressed his face into her neck, his eye lashes against her skin made her shudder. They both let out a breath then Liz slipped her body down on him again, since Max was already ready before this so he was already feeling the wave.
These moments when they were alone together and sharing every last inch of each other with one another were the special times. When they were here by themselves they could forget about everyone and everything… only they existed.
Max’s lips trailing along Liz’s collar bone and then up her throat, Liz let out a rasping breath, “Max…”
“I know…” he felt it too, he felt the wonderful love and overwhelming exploding of their hearts. Liz’s hips rose for the fourth and then fifth time and thrust down on top of him. They climaxed together with their foreheads pressed against each other’s, their breathing was rapid for a few minutes afterwards then slowly started to slow down…
“Shower…” Liz breathed into Max’s open mouth, “now…”
Max nodded and without lifting her off of him got up off the bed and down onto the floor. Liz clung to him whilst torturing Max’s neck with her tongue, Max moaned, “Liz babe stop or I won’t make it to the…”
They didn’t make it to the bathroom they made love again against the dresser.
“We are just unbelievable,” Liz got off him and her feet hit the floor, “Should we really be this sex crazed…still?” she chuckled.
Max laughed and followed her into the bathroom, “We can if we want to be,” he bit her neck, “anyway you’re my wife I have certain inalienable rights that I am… making sure that I’m using,” did that make sense? Max didn’t care he was too fogged with love for her, too stained with her all over his body…
Liz turned on the shower with one word in her head, ‘water sports,’ she grinned at herself and stepped under the heating up water. Max followed and he shivered as the cold water hit his body. Liz stood on both of his feet and leaned up to whisper in his ear; “I love you glistening wet…” she nibbled on his ear. Max grabbed the soap off the silver tray in the wall and ran it over Liz’s belly… he loved her pregnant belly, it made him feel whole knowing what was inside of it. He dropped the soap onto the bottom of the shower and continued rubbing her belly; Liz’s hands came up to intertwine with his and she pulled them up to her mouth. She kissed his knuckles then her eyes gleaming with delight let go and went down to hold his straining manhood hanging between his legs. No one knew Max’s penis as well as Liz did, that made her chuckle.
She tweaked the head and Max jumped slightly, her fingers danced along his skin… she heard Max moan. Max wanted her to feel what he was feeling, his hands swept up her thighs and one of his hands opened her flaps to revel the pink inner…
He dipped one finger in twirled it around, up and down… Liz followed his movements on him, they both moaned. Liz increased her rhythm and Max pulled his finger out and cupped her and rubbed her…
Liz got faster and faster, “Oh god Liz…” he moaned.
Steam started to gather as the water got hotter and the glass shower door clouded… Liz gasped for breath only getting steam in her mouth instead of air.
He rubbed her swollen flesh and she shuddered as release started gathering… she rocked into his hand. Max’s face mirrored her own… contorted with pleasure and desire. They nibbled at each other’s mouths, their tongues teasing their swollen lips…
The heat gathered more and more reached the peak where it was too much to take… Liz let go and rode the wave of pleasure… Max came soon after…
Liz wondered if climax felt the same for both male and female…men got to actually release but woman they just spasmed. Content but definitely not finished they leaned against the wall until they caught their breath. “Oh Max…” Liz pressed her head into his chest and licked her lips. Max ran his hand up her thigh and rested it on her hip; the water stung his eyes so he couldn’t get the eye contact he wanted… he took her lips instead.
Liz invited his tongue willingly and ran her hands up his chest and then around his shoulders, god it just felt so good to be with him… she couldn’t imagine living without it.
Max wanted to taste her… her wanted to have his mouth drink her up… he broke the kiss and they both heaved for breath. Max kissed down her neck and slowly got down onto his knee’s as his kisses made their way down her body, he spent extra time kissing her hip bone, there was something about her hips that just… drove him insane.
His torturous hands rubbed her thighs and Liz knowing what he was about to do moaned and pressed her back into the white shower wall. “Max… I won’t be able to keep standing,” she breathed, “oh god,” her voice was cut out with the sound of the water pounding on the shower floor and their bodies. She closed her eyes and her head moved up and down on the wall as Max kissed up her thigh, he was taking too long, she wanted to feel his lips on her NOW…
Finally she felt the soft and caressing lips reach their destination and she couldn’t help but jump in delight… Max’s mouth watered he had been dying to taste her… his favorite taste in the whole world. His lips sucked on her nub and his tongue teased her center… once she’d come once it only took a couple of seconds for the wave to climax again…
She cried out and her legs buckled beneath her, Max caught her and rapped his arms around her waist, she breathed into his hair, “How can I live through this…?” she whispered.
They would have stayed in the shower longer but neither of them could stand much longer, they wanted to lie down and have each part of their skin touching… Max turned off the water and pushed open the shower door.
Liz stepped out and not bothering to dry her self went and sat down on the basin. Max followed her, desire burning in his eyes.
Liz opened her legs and brought her own hand up to touch herself, Max’s breath caught in his throat… she knew he loved to watch her pleasure herself. She rubbed her self and Max stood in between her legs watching… his body was begging for release again. Liz’s other hand came up to touch her breast and Max couldn’t take it any longer, her reached out and took her hand away from herself… and pushed his erection inside of her. He moaned and quickly pulled himself out of her and thrust in again… he knew he should be gentler but he had no control left, he wanted to orgasm in her right now. He thrust into her again and once again and then shot out into her, Liz’s tunnel tingled with the feeling of his seamen spreading within her.
She smiled and kissed his lips; he was leaving himself in her…
“I wish we could stay like this forever…” His voice was husky in her ear. She smirked and rapped her arms around his neck, “Then how would I have our baby? The first thing she’d see would be your….” She laughed, “She’d be as scared as hell.”
Max laughed and kissed her again, “Come on, let’s go back to our room…”
He lifted her up over his shoulder and Liz laughed, “Ahh Max I can walk, I can walk…!”
He put her down on the bed and lay down beside her, “What do you want me to do?”
“I want you to sing to me,” she kissed his shoulder…
“Okay, what about this song, it’s stuck in my head,” he laughed, “I can hardly wait to hold you, feel my arms around you… don’t ever go…”
Liz laughed, “Don’t ever go,” she repeated.
Max smiled and buried his head in her chest, “I love you,” he whispered.


Liz sat dressed on the dinning table in front of Max, for her birthday she had ordered him to feed her. he put the fork up to her lips and she ate the scrambled eggs gladly.
Max had to leave soon, he was so mad at that. Liz was so mad at that.
“Wait, wait, wait,” Liz took the fork from him and put it down on the table, “If your not back by one-thirty we’re getting a divorce.”
Max’s eyes widened, “I better not be late then,”
“Yes you better not, you’ll have to tell that to who ever is keeping you at the office, say that I’ll kill them with my own two hands if they try to step in my way of trying to get to you…”
“Okay then,” he smiled and they shared a kiss. Max proceeded with feeling her and Kyle came into the room, this time dressed in a suit, “oh,” he grinned, “Good morning.”
Liz swallowed the food in her mouth, “Good morning… don’t mind us.”
Kyle laughed, Liz was sitting on the table with a plate of food on her lap and her feet down on each side of the chair Max was sitting on. He had a fork in his hand and Liz was eating everything he feed her, he thought it was incredibly sweet.
Liz wiped her mouth with a napkin and sipped her drink, ‘Sleep well?”
“Yes I did,” he smiled, “Thank you for asking. Happy Birthday by the way.”
“Thank you,” Liz said. Max stood up, “I have to be going, I will be as quickly as possible…”
“You better be,” Liz kissed his lips, “I’ll se you later.”
“See ya man,” Kyle took a seat at the table and one of the maids brought him some scrambled eggs.
“Bye,” Max smiled then quickly left the room. The quicker he got to work, the quicker he could get home.
Kyle was amazed at how much Max and Liz loved each other. He was very happy one of his best friends had found such happiness.

I love being bumped it makes me feel special lol
Sorry this part took a little while!

EIGHT

Liz sat looking at the clock. It was one-thirty two and there was no sign of Max anywhere. She wanted to be mad but instead she started crying.
She buried her head in her hands and her little shoulders shook as weeps came out of her. She didn't like being here alone all day, she missed her best friend and going to work. The only good thing about being here was Max and when he wasn't around she felt so tiny and unwanted.
She tried to talk to the maids but they were so professional and just wanted to get on with their jobs. They probably had great lives outside of this place where they went out with their friends and had boyfriends and danced and drank all night long. She had tried to make friends with the neighbor but she had ended up being some crazy alcoholic with a mean husband. She was still working on her but she knew that there would never be a great friendship between them both.
Liz loved her husband too much. That was the problem. She was used to being surrounded by people she knew and being close to family and because she loved her husband so much she had moved here and was bored to death. And she would do it again, she would go anywhere for him but why did she have to be all alone?
Liz sniffled and wiped her eyes; she was being silly she knew that. She didn't have it that bad, she was living in a gorgeous house and had everything she could possibly want. She was treated like a princess twenty-four seven!
She ate wonderful foods and was pregnant with a little girl that she knew would probably be a little angel. The only thing she didn't have was her best friend.
She didn't want to worry Max and have him have more burdens then he already had. He was torn up with trying to get away from work and being with her more, he hated being away from her. None of this was his fault but he blamed it on himself constantly. He had too many worries.
Liz grabbed a tissue off the coffee table in front of her and dabbed her eyes; she didn't want Max to know she had been crying. Right now she was sitting in the lounge next to the dinning room where she had a great view of a big clock in front of her. Also this place was right near the front door and when Max came home she would be able to hear him come in.
Liz blew her nose and wiped it clean then put the tissue down on the table in front of her, he would be here soon, he wouldn't disappoint her that much.
She was too far into her pregnancy to go anywhere now. She wasn't allowed to fly now, she was stuck here in Thailand.
Liz chuckled at herself, even if she could go anywhere she wouldn't be going anywhere. She didn't know how she felt about giving birth to her child in this foreign country. She didn't really have much say on it now but the fact her baby would be born in Thailand didn't bother her too much.
On the bright side her daughter could live here if she wanted to when she was older.
Liz looked at the clock again, one-thirty nine.
Most likely Max would fly in and say his sorry and she would forgive him straight away but still pretend like she cared because it was her and that is what she did. She only cared a little, there was no point in getting upset about it because there was nothing either of them could do about it.
Liz thought about getting a companion. Maybe she could buy a cat? They seemed like they were good companions. They always were in movies; they came and lay on their owner’s laps...
She heard the front door opened and she quickly swallowed back her tears and made herself look decent again. She looked down at her clothes, she was wearing a pair of baggy jeans with a stretchy waistband to go around her belly and a pink turtle neck woolen jersey.
Not clothes someone would classify as sexy but it fitted her boring lifestyle.
She had gray woolly socks on her feet and half of her hair was clipped back with a small leather clip and pin. If only she could look sexy for her husband once again.
Her back had constant pains and she was always rubbing it to make it feel better, it didn't work.
"Honey, I can explain... traffic. I left the office a while ago it took forever to get here.... Are you okay?" Max frowned when he saw her face.
Liz put on a smile; "I'm fine. Your ten minutes late mister, you better have something great to make up for it."
Max took off his jacket, "Anything you want. Anything... if it costs a million dollars I don't give a shit you can have it," he walked over to her and knelt down in front of her, he examined her face closely, "Are you sure your okay?"
"I'm fine," Liz blinked.
Max looked at her questioningly then stood up. He knew Liz very well and he knew she was upset. She was acting like she was okay but he knew better and he had disappointed her. He wanted to punch himself.
"What are we going to do with the rest of the day?" Liz asked, "It's raining so we have only a limited..."
Max leaned down and kissed her, "Let me get changed and then we can go out."
"Out where?" Liz asked.
"Anywhere, somewhere nice. Let's go out and have some food. Have you eaten?" he hadn't given Liz a birthday present, he felt like the worst husband right now. Liz must have been having the shittiest birthday ever.
"No I haven't eaten," she had had a chocolate muffin but she felt like she could eat a horse. She felt like going dancing.
"Good," Max said. "Well no not good you should have eaten but..." he shook his head, "Let me go get changed. I'll be right back."
He left the room and Liz was left alone again. He was here now everything would be okay- she would be okay.
She stood up and picked up his jacket, maybe she should put on some nice clothes?
Her feet ached when she walked on them but she couldn't sit down or be lying down forever, she needed to move around and keep herself going.

She carried Max's jacket up to their room and when she walked in Max was pulling off his pants and going to put on new ones. Liz chuckled at his gray Calvin Kl...
"What are you laughing at?" Max smirked and chucked his pants on the bed.
"You," she said her lips curving into a grin, "What clothes are you going to wear?"
Max shrugged, "Why?" he unbuttoned his shirt...
"Oh I want to pick you something," she put his jacket down on the sofa and walked over to where he was. She brushed past him and opened the closet.
She got him a burgundy button down shirt and a black jacket. She got him some black pants to go with the jacket, "There put that on, I love you in that..." she smiled teasingly.
Max did as he was told.
"Maybe I should get changed..." Liz searched through her things, "I'm so big now I don’t have much nice clothes that fit…”
"You look fine you don't need to change," Max said.
Liz chuckled, "Yeah right like I'd listen to you, you think I look good in anything," she dove into her clothes, "Let's see... something nice?"
She found a nice red skirt that went down to her ankles and had a big split on each side. She decided that would probably still fit her. She also found a black turtle neck jersey much like the one she was wearing. She put that on and found some comfortable but nice shoes to wear. She left her hair how it was, "There much better," she looked at herself in the mirror, "Apart from the whole belly part..."
Max came up behind her and kissed her shoulder, "You always look good, let's go shall we?"
Liz smiled, "Okay then."

Max drove them to a little Thai restaurant and they sat down at a table near the back next to a big curtain with a girl dancing in a nice dress painted on it. Max had a little bag in his hand and he put it down on the table and didn’t speak of its meaning. The waitress took their orders then walked away… “If you could have anything in the world what would it be?” Max asked.
Liz rested her head on her hands and pursed her lip; my best friend here, “I have everything I could possible want.”
Max sighed, “You always say that and that’s why you make it almost impossible for me to get you anything for your birthday…”
“You think it’s hard for you? What about me! If you wanted something you would buy it,” Liz smiled, “Anyway you don’t need to get me anything, you’ve already given me so much.”
Max shrugged and reached over to take her hands, “How can we make this easier for each other?”
“I say we don’t get each other any present’s unless we know there’s something one of use know the other one wants…” Liz looked puzzled, “No wait, we could just buy it ourselves…”
“True,” Max let go of her hands, “This is just a little of what I got you…”
Liz laughed, “You mean there’s more?”
“Well yeah,” Max kissed her hand, “Of course there is.”
“Damn you Max Evan’s.”
“Damn you Mrs. Evan’s,” Max put the silver bag in front of her and tilted his head to the side, “Happy Birthday Liz.”
Liz blushed, “Thank you, Max.”

The waitress came over with their drinks and they thanked her.
Liz sipped her drink and Max watched her…
“What?” she asked, “Oh you expect me to open it now?”
“That would be nice, yes,” he chuckled.
Liz rolled her eye’s, “Okay I’ll open it but it better not make me cry because this is a public place and you know I’m a pregnant woman whose emotions are level high…”
“It won’t make you cry,” he dipped his head and waited impatiently for her to open it, he wanted to know if she liked it. Hurry up he wanted to say.
Liz opened the bag and peaked inside; “it’s rapped?” she reached in and pulled out a present rapped in dark blue rapping paper. It was heavy and obviously books but she didn’t know what books…
She pulled off the rapping paper and in her hands were two books, “I’m kind of copying you,” Max sighed, “It’s not the same as what you gave me but I thought you might like to own them…”
Liz put one of the books down and focused on the top one. It was a copy of her favorite book, Withering Heights. It was a beautiful version though… it had a white cover and the pages were black with white writing. It had the author’s signature on the inside of the cover, which was obviously a very rare thing… Liz felt tears well in her eyes, “Damn you I told you I didn’t want to cry!” she bit her lip.
Max chuckled, “It’s only a book…”
“That would have cost a fortune!” she cried, “How did you get this? It’s signed. This must be so old!” she flicked through the pages, “How did you get this?”
“It took a little bit of work but I found it,” he smiled pleased that she obviously liked it. Liz whimpered, “Oh wow it’s just so…” her eyes filled with tears, “So beautiful” her voice cracked.
Max wanted to hug her. Stupid table separating them
Liz looked at the next book, it had Elizabeth Evan’s printed in gold on it’s leather cover and inside on each page it had, Elizabeth’s thoughts:’ written in calligraphy at the top. It wasn’t hand made but it was very nice. At the back it had a frosty pocket for her to put things in, like notes or photo’s or anything she wanted to keep…
“That’s nothing much, I just thought since you don’t have your best friend to talk to you can write down what you don’t get to say in there… you know a journal… That was Isabel’s idea. I can’t take the credit,” Max said.
A tear dripped down her cheek, “You’re my best friend too Max, I love this and I will use it, but don’t think I don’t tell you things…” she looked up at him with big tear filled eyes. “I tell you everything too, don’t think I don’t because you’re not Maria.”
Max swallowed and reached over to wipe her eyes with his thumb, “I don’t think you don’t tell me everything,” he smiled, “I just know that you need a female to share things and bond over things with that you can’t do with me…”
Liz’s heart popped and all her inners melted, he was just so… wonderful. She too cursed the table for being in the way of getting to him. “I share everything with you…” she leaned forward and tapped her lips, “Come here…” she whispered. Max leaned forward and she kissed him, gently and lovingly… she brushed her lips over his and left them there for a while not wanting to end it. “Thank you,” she whispered against his lips, “I love it all so much! I love you so much. Thank you,” she sucked in a breath then kissed him again.

Before they left the restaurant they went and shared a dance on the little dance floor. Liz rapped her arms around her husband’s neck, “When we go back to New York when your finished here…” she swallowed, “Can we not have a huge house with maids? I want something that isn’t too big and you can call from somewhere in the house and you’ll be able to hear it everywhere… well maybe not everywhere but… you know?” she chuckled at her herself. “I realize you need a nice house in case you have to have people from work over but…”
Max nodded, “If you want a small house we can get a small house,” he smiled, “I kind of want one too.”
“You do?” Liz looked puzzled,
“Yes I do, of course,” he grinned.
Liz pressed her head to his chest, “Thank you.”
Max kissed the top of her head, “Don’t thank me.” He breathed in the smell of her hair and closed his eyes; it was his favorite smell. “Your other surprise is at home,” he said.
Liz looked up at him, “It is?” she shook her head, “Let’s go then!” she chuckled.
Max kissed her neck, “What’s the hurry?”
Liz smiled, “There’s no hurry. Why did you get me something else… what I have is more than enough.”
“You’ll want this,” he said, “come on let’s go…” He decided he wanted to get home after all.
“Okay then,” Max took Liz’s hands and they walked back over to their table. Max paid for the food and they put on their jackets and went home.

A few minutes after they had pulled out of the car park and were on their way home, Max's cell phone rang. Liz picked it up and answered it, "Yeah just a second," she handed it to Max, "They miss you already."
Max rolled his eyes and took the phone from her. He had one hand on the staring wheel and the other on his phone, Liz watched him.
"No, don't do that. You can wait one day, no? One day! I am not coming in you are supposed to be taking care of everything, take care of it. It's nothing major you know what to do..."
The person on the phone said something-
"Oh for gods sake," Max muttered, "What would you do if I was completely out of reach and no one could get hold of me? Well whatever it is do it because as far as I'm concerned, I'll fire anyone who tries to disturb me again. Yes including you." Max hanged up the phone and handed it back to Liz, she was gaping at him. Max put his other hand back on the gear stick and said, "Oh can you turn my phone off for me please, love?"
Liz turned the phone off and put it back down where she had found it. She was so majorly turned on! She had never heard Max talk to anyone like that before and to hear him.... Oh my god- was all she could think.
Max looked at her quickly, "What?" he smirked
Liz bit her lip, "Nothing..." she continued to stare at him.
Max watched her out of the corner of his eye, "No tell me... what?"
Liz blushed and said, "Do you always talk to your employee's like that?"
Max glanced at her, "No, only when it's my wives birthday and I want to share it with her without them ringing every hour," he smiled.
Liz shuddered, "Wow," Liz looked down at herself, she was fighting the urge to jump on him.
"What?" Max laughed, "Your starting to worry me now..."
She looked up at him, "oh... um..." she swallowed, "Stop the car I can't take it any longer!"
Max frowned, "Why? What?" he was confused.
She leaned over and pressed her lips to his neck, "I am so majorly turned on right now, I think I'm going to burst!"
Max laughed, "Oh."
"Oh?" she cried, “Oh! Is that all you have to say? Hurry up and get home! This is all your fault for talking so... and in the car and ohhh," she shuddered, "Damn you hurry up."
Max was laughing, "Stop! Stop it you'll make me crash the car and I'd never forgive myself."
"But Max I'm craving you!" she whined, "You always fulfill my cravings, fill this one!"
"Your other cravings are usually chocolate or ice cream or.... Mexican food!" the car pulled onto their street.
"Well this one's you, so hurry up!" Liz bobbed up in down.
Max sighed, "Liz we can't when we get home beca..." Liz shoved her tongue in his ear, "Hmm," he moaned, "What I really need is for you not to do_oo that."
They finally reached their house and Liz pulled her mouth away, "Drive faster."
Their gate slowly opened and when it was fully open Max drove forward. As they pulled up outside the house Liz unbuckled her seat belt and grabbed her hand bag...
When the engine was off she jumped out of the car and ran around to his side, "Come on," she cried.
Max chuckled, "No Liz calm down, we have..." she kissed him,
"No excuses, come on," she grabbed his arm and kicked the car door closed. They hurried up the steps because one, it was pouring down with rain and two Liz was dragging Max by the arm...
Liz flung open the front door and yanked Max inside. Max some how managed to grab Liz's jacket and get it off her shoulders before she mauled him. Max tried to hold her back, "Liz babe..."
He got his jacket off and hung it up on the hook but Liz's tiny hands were already unbuttoning the top button off his shirt...
"I god Max I need you so much," she brought her lips up to his and pressed her body to his. She rubbed herself up and down on his and moaned out his name. Max needed to stop this, he had to tell her that they could because they had guests but she persisted. How could he say no to her...? He had to!
He got feeling in his arms working again and they took hold of his arms, "Liz no we can't M..."
"What Max why...?"
"I'm here!" Maria burst into the room and Liz turned and gaped at her.
"Ma.Ria?!" she cried. She looked at Maria then back and Max and then back and forth between them several times. "Oh my god!" she cried after a long silent moment. She threw her hands up in the air and shook them around and then looked at Max then Maria once again and ran over to her best friend. "Maria!" she exclaimed, "Your here? Your here!" they shared a huge hug and jumped up and down together.
"Chinca this house is like ten times better then how you described it!" Maria screamed, "I can't believe your living here! You stupid cow!"
Liz laughed, "What are you doing here... Max?" she turned to face him... "Did you...?"
"Yeah it was his idea!" Maria cried, "Well since we couldn't fly you to New York, you know you being all pregnant and all, he sent me here!"
"Oh!" Liz's eye's filled with tears, "I can't believe this."
"Look how fat you are!" Maria cried. All this noise was giving Max a headache.
Liz frowned, "I'm not that bad am I?" she looked down at herself, "Oh my god I am aren't I...?"
"You have an excuse, jeez."
"Ladies, can we go ins..." Max started.
"Jeez Max button up your shirt, you don't wear it like that often do you?" Maria chuckled and rapped her arm around Liz's shoulders, "come on babe, let's go in."
Max rolled his eyes and started buttoning up his shirt. What had happened to Liz absolutely needing him? That had gone away quickly and now he was left with a boner and no one to suppress his need. Damn it, he thought.

A little while later Max made his way into the other room.
“Where did you disappear to Maxie pooch?” Maria, Liz and Kyle were sitting on the couch in the lounge area where Liz had been sitting earlier that day
“Bathroom,” Max sat down on a sofa chair across from them. Liz glanced at him then realizing she’d left him high and dry gasped and put her head in her hands, how mean of her!
“Liz babe guess where we’re spending the weekend!” Maria threw her hands around in glee, “A beauty spa!”
Liz’s eyes widened and she took her hands away from her face, “What?”
“Well it’s more of Max’s birthday gift, isn’t it wonderful. This gift includes me coming along!” Maria laughed, “We come back on Monday and I already have your bags packed… did it while you were at lunch, isn’t this a wonderful plan?”
“You’ve said that twice now,” Kyle chuckled. Kyle had gone and picked Maria up from the airport while Max and Liz were at lunch, they were getting on very well.
“Oh my god,” Liz said rubbing her lower back, “I didn’t expect this, Max I don’t…” she looked up at him.
“Oh shut up Liz, it’s a gift you’re supposed to say smile and thank you!” Maria grinned,
“Maria give me a minute to take everything in will you…?” Liz took a deep breath, “I am a severely pregnant woman and this is all a bit much,” she was now rubbing her forehead.
Max was getting concerned, “Are you feeling okay?”
Liz nodded, “Yeah I’m fine I’m just a little tired I guess,” she smiled to reassure him, “Where is this beauty spa…?”
“Just at the end of town,” Maria said,
“Oh,” Liz looked down at her hands, “When do we leave?”
“Tonight, after dinner. Max wanted to cook,” Maria explained.
Max rolled his eyes, trust Maria to do all the talking. Liz felt like she was about to fall asleep, it was amazing how quickly your emotions changed when you were pregnant. “Liz I can’t believe you live here! Oh I want to go for a swim, want to go for one now?”
Liz blinked, “I’m going to fall asleep,” she said.
“Oh,” Maria frowned. “Do you need to go have a rest? I’ll go for a swim by myself.”
“I’m really sorry Maria, I want to I really do, I just… I’m so tired,” she sighed, “You just got here and…”
“Say no more babe, I totally understand. And don’t worry we have the whole weekend to spend together without interruptions. Go get some sleep… Kyle wanna go for a swim with me?”
He shrugged, “Sure why not, I’ve got nothing else to do.”
He got up, “I’ll just go get changed.” They left the room and Liz felt her eyes start to droop, she stood up quickly. Max got up as well….
Liz walked to the door and then stopped, “Max?” she asked. He came up behind her, ‘Are you sure your okay?” he touched her back, “Your worrying me…”
She nodded, “I’m fine,” she did not move.
Max frowned, “Can you walk up there by yourself?”
Her body started drifting downwards, “Yes,” she said.
“Right then,” Max put his hands under her arms, “Up we go then,” he helped to stand up properly.
She leaned into him, ‘Thank you sweet heart, for everything…” he picked her up and carried her out of the room, “That’s what husbands are for right?” he kissed her forehead.
By the time they were at their room she was asleep with her head tilted to the side. Max put her down on their bed and pulled off her shoes, “Sleep tight,” he brushed his lips across her forehead then tucked her under the blankets. He gazed at her one more time then left the room.


When Liz woke up two and a half hours later she lay in bed and stared at the empty pillow next to hers. She wasn’t thinking about anything in particular but thanked god for having such a wonderful life. She didn’t even know if she believed him but she thanked him for everything he had given to her and everything she was lucky enough to have. She thanked him for the miracle of pregnancy and the miracle of lovemaking and the miracle of chocolate and then she thanked him for enchiladas because she loved enchiladas. She thanked him for putting Max Evan’s on this planet and she thanked him for her best friend.
She thanked him for giving people talent and then thanked him for movies… then she thanked him for the movie Titanic because she liked that movie. She wished she hadn’t thought of that, now she had the biggest craving to watch it. She started trying to remember the lyrics of the titanic song…
“Every night in my dreams, I see you, I feel you
That is how I know you go on.
Far across the distance and spaces between us, you have come to show you go on.
Near, far, wherever you are, I believe that the heart does go on…
Once more you open the door and till…”
That’s all she could remember right now. She sat up and looked around the room; it was quiet and dark because the curtains had been drawn. She needed to get up; everyone would be waiting to eat down stairs.
She got up and brushed her hair and then put it up in a tiger clip, she contemplated having a shower decided not to. She put on some socks and walked downstairs rubbing her back as she went. She noticed that none of the maids were around, Max must have sent them home.
She went straight to the kitchen- her nostrils and stomach leading the way. She didn’t think she could still be hungry after lunch but after sleeping the baby was craving some more food. Max was in the kitchen putting food onto plates, “Great timing,” she said. Max looked up from what he was doing and smiled, “Very good timing,” he said.
She rapped her arms around herself, she was still wearing her jersey and skirt, “Where’s Maria and Kyle?”
Max licked some sauce off his finger, “Setting up the dinning room…”
Liz walked over to where he was, “You sent the maids home?” she asked. He nodded, “yeah.”
She went to pick up a plate but Max stopped her, “No it’s your birthday, let me escort you to your seat.”
There was no point in arguing with him; she just wasn’t in the mood. He lead her into the dinning room that was lit with candles and music.
Max pulled out a seat at the head of the table and Liz sat down, “I feel like I need to get dressed up,” said Liz.
“You don’t need to,” he walked away and while he was gone Maria and Kyle came in and took seats near her. “This weather is crap Liz, is it always like this?”
“Is it still pouring down?” Liz asked.
“On and off,” Maria shivered.
“It’s usually good weather,” Liz said, she couldn’t believe she was twenty-six now… she was getting old. Now she knew how Max had felt on his birthday. She hadn’t understood when he complained about nearly being thirty. Speaking of Max, he walked in with two plates in his hands; he put one down in front of Liz and the other in front of Maria. “Looks fabulous Max darling,” Maria commented. Liz nodded her head in agreement.
“I would have thought Michael would come and stay too,” Liz sipped her water, “Is he working?”
“Yeah he is but he said he was going to try and fly here tomorrow. He really want’s to see Kyle,” Maria explained, “I don’t know if it’s very good that these three men will be here all by themselves. That’s just asking for disaster isn’t it?”
“Why? We are grown ups, we can be trusted,” Kyle grinned with all his teeth.
“Sure,” Max agreed taking a seat next to his wife, “It will be mostly work.”
“Better be,” Liz’s eyes twinkled, “Anyway, have you heard from Isabel… how’s her pregnancy going?”
Kyle nearly spat out his food, “Isabel’s pregnant?” he exclaimed, “Holy shit!” he cried.
“Kyle please, no swearing… babies can hear everything going outside of the womb,” Max frowned.
Liz laughed, “Where’d you hear that?” she asked.
“I read it in a book, everything influences them even from in there… it effects what they will be like when they are a baby and might even affect their whole lives… so Kyle watch your language.”
“Sweet as man,” Kyle sipped his drink, “So Isabel… pregnant? This is Isabel Evan’s we’re talking about? There is no way she’d….”
“You know Isabel?” Liz asked.
“Of course I know Isabel,” Kyle said.
“He dated Isabel,” Max said.
“Woah,” Maria interjected, “That’s just weird.”
“Why?” Kyle asked, “We had a good time together. Two years we were together…” he sighed.
“Wow,” Liz said, “Why didn’t you tell me? That’s kind of strange… anyway yeah Isabel’s pregnant and she should be around five or six months onto it…?”
“Yeah,” Max said, “Five and a half to be exact.”
“Whose kid is it?” Kyle asked.
“You have been away too long,” Max chuckled, “It’s Alex’s.”
“They ended up getting married?” Kyle raised his eyebrows, “Wow now that is weird.”
“You know what’s really weird?” Liz said, “Since we’re on the topic of course.”
“Of course,” Maria smiled.
Liz laughed, “I am going to give birth in less than a month!” she stopped eating, “How scary, every thing’s going so fast…”
Max rubbed her knee.
Maria bit her lip, “That is weird, you are so big and pregnant! I don’t know what I expected when I came here, I think I just expected you to not be pregnant.”
Liz frowned, “Oh… okay then,” she chuckled.


Kyle leaned under the table and pulled out a little purple bag with Happy birthday written in silver writing on it. He slid it towards Liz and smiled, "Happy Birthday Liz babe."
Liz blushed, "Oh thank you Kyle. You really didn't have to..."
Kyle sipped his beer, "What? Of course I did, I'm staying out your haven of love for free."
All of them laughed. "Well I guess so," Liz peaked in the bag and then pulled out an envelope and a box with silver rapping paper and gold stars printed on it. She opened the envelope first.
There was card inside that said on the cover:
Happy Birthday, please don't tell anyone I sent you this, I don't want to be made fun of for associating with you.
Liz snorted, “Oh yee thanks Kyle,”
“My pleasure,” he laughed.
“What does it say?” Maria asked. Liz read it out to them and they laughed. “That’s almost as funny as the engagement card I got Liz,” Maria giggled “It said: I hear you're getting married and I would just like to say that there are better ways to lose your virginity.”
Liz shook her head, “Oh what nice cards I get.” She opened the cared and on the inside there was a one hundred and fifty-dollar voucher for a clothing store,
“For you to get something for yourself," Kyle ginned. Liz thanked him.
At the bottom of the card Kyle had written,

Liz,
You've brought light into my best friend’s life and I just want to say thank you. I have never seen him so happy and I know that you two will last forever.
You’re a cool chick and you'll be the best mom. I can't wait to see your beautiful daughter...
Love Kyle.

Liz sniffled and glared at Kyle, "Kyle that means so much, thank you."
He nodded. She put the card down and opened the present; inside was a small silver clock that had the times of every place all over the world. It was very flash it had little buttons and everything, Liz laughed, “Oh thank you for the gifts Kyle.”
“Sweet as,” Kyle smiled.
“I’m getting you sexy lingerie but we have to pick out together sometime while I’m here. I couldn’t exactly get you a voucher from New York could I?” Maria grinned.
Max’s eyes flared, sexy lingerie!
“I saw that look on your face Max Evan’s!” Maria laughed, “See this gift is for the both of you… I’m just an angel aren’t I?”
Liz blushed.

Later that night, near quarter to seven, Liz and Maria got ready to go.
“Tell me about where we are gong,” Liz said.
“It’s like a spa, you know?” Maria pulled on her coat; “I looked into it. I saw pictures of it on the Internet and it’s beautiful. We can soak in honey and have our bodies prepped and moisturized, we can have anything done. Our hair cut, dyed…”
“Wow,” Liz looked down at herself; “I could really use that. I feel like a big beauty… boost.”
“Same here,” Maria put on her high heal shoes, “Okay ready to go?”
Liz glanced over at Max, “Give me a second!” she laughed and walked over to him, “I won’t see you for three days?” she gave him a puppy dog look. Max smiled and tucked her long hair behind her ears, “Unfortunately yes.”
Kyle made choking noises, “I think I’m going to be sick… too much corny…”
“Shut up Kyle,” Max and Liz both said.
“Okay, Okay, I’ll go stand over…there,” he wandered away.
“I was going to sent you there for a week but decided there was no way I could handle you being away for that long,” he kissed her, “I want you to have a good time with your best friend.”
“And I will,” she rested her forehead against his, “Thank you for this gift.” She smiled, “I love you.”
“I love you too,” he pulled the woolly hat she was wearing down further. She pushed it up a little…
“First night apart since you got married is it?” Maria walked up and rapped her arm through Liz’s, “Well of course it is…” she sighed, “I feel for you, I really do but we have to get going. I’m dying with anticipation!”
Liz laughed, “Okay Maria, okay go get in the cab.”
“Are you going to be joining me quickly?” She grinned.
“YES!” Liz cried, “Give me two seconds,”
“I’ll be counting,” Maria walked away and Liz rolled her eyes,
“I’ll see you later,” she leaned up and kissed Max again, “be good.”
Max squatted down and kissed her belly, “Bye little one, be good to your mother…” he rubbed her stomach then stood up straight again, “Have fun.”
They shared another kiss then Liz went and hopped in the car, as they were driving away Liz put her head out the window and called out, “Don’t do anything I won’t approve of!”


Max sat at his desk at his office. He was staring at the contract in front of him, had re-read it at least three times but he was still a little worried. This was a very big thing and he did not want to screw up.
When he had told James he didn’t want to give him half the business James had been very pissed off. James probably couldn’t be trusted so it was a good thing he wasn’t around any more, Liz was just quicker to spot it than him. With the way James had acted when Max had told him he wasn’t the man for the job he was glad he had gotten rid of him before it was too late.

Max didn’t like doing that to people but he put his wife before anyone else.

He thought about the reason he was doing all this to begin with and he realized he was not only doing this for Liz but himself. He did not want to be a father like his dad had been when he was younger. Sure his father was a great man and he loved him with all his heart but he was never around. He had missed so much of Isabel and Max’s childhood.
Max was determined to not be a father like that. He wanted to have time to go play baseball with his child in the back yard. This was a promise he had made to himself when he was growing up. This had nothing to do with Liz it had to do with himself and what standards he had set for himself.

This was something that had to be done.

Kyle was the man for the job. Max was convinced of it now; there was no other man he could trust with such a big responsibility. Max was a little worried Kyle would say no and he’d be stuck in the same situation, with heaps of work to do and hardly any free time. If Kyle said no Max had no idea what he would do then. He would be screwed, he’d be his father.
A little voice in his head said that he wasn’t his father just by having this contract written up and ready to be signed.
He was making his father sound like a bad man but he wasn’t, he had done his best and Max was thankful for that. He just didn’t want to be stuck like his father had been.
“You got to stop and smell the roses, you got count your many blessings every day.
Your gonna find the road to heaven is a rough and rocky road, if you don’t stop and smell the roses along the way.

Hey mister where you going in such a hurry? Well don’t you think it’s time you realize, there’s a whole lot more to life then work and worries. The sweetest things in life are free and their right in front of your eyes…”
Max sung to himself.
He used to love that song; he used to play it all the time.
“Before you went to work this morning in the city, did you spend some time with your family?
Did you kiss your wife and tell her that she’s pretty, did you take your children in your arms and hold them tenderly?”
He had heard it so many times he knew the lyrics off by heart.
“Did you ever take a walk through the forest? Stop and dream awhile among the trees,
You can look out through the leaves right through to heaven, and you can almost hear the voice of god in each and every dream.”
Max sat back in his chair and clicked his pen, what he was doing was a good thing and Kyle would say yes. He would be crazy to say no.
His intercom beeped and he clicked the button, “Is he here?”
“Yes he is.”
“Send him in,” Max folded his arms and sat back in his chair again. Kyle opened his office door and walked in, “Hey Max what did you want me for?” he walked over, “Are you trying to be all high and mighty in your big chair and your big desk?” he grinned, “Isn’t going to work with me dude.”
Max chuckled and stood up, “I need to talk to you about something important.”
Kyle could tell he was serious by the look on his face, “Shoot.”
“I have a proposal for you.”

Anyway thankyou for all the feedback guys after this part I'll have to start a new thread, you know ten pages and all *big*

TEN

“Oh this is so good,” Liz closed her eyes and sighed.
“So, so good,” Maria moaned.
They were both getting massages from two professionals. Liz had a short woman working at her shoulders and Maria had a tall muscular man working of her. They were in heaven, their bodies were so comfortable and happy. They could not remember a time when their bodies felt so good.
After this they were going to go soak in a milk and honey bath with a cucumber face mask and a seaweed drink. “Oh down a bit, yeah my lower back…ahhh hmm,” Liz clenched her toes in satisfaction. After she finished her back she massaged her thighs and calves and then her feet.
Afterwards Liz and Maria lay there without moving, “I am so relaxed it seems impossible to move,” Maria had her eyes closed, “We owe huge thank you’s to your wonderful husband.”
“You can thank him, I am going to do much more than that,” Liz licked her lips, “He deserves a big long…”
“Blow job?” Maria laughed.
“Maybe depends on what I feel like at the time,” Liz slowly sat up, “Okay time for milk and honey,” she smiled. “I might fall asleep in there.”
“So might I,” Maria got up off the table and rapped the white towel around her body. “This is heaven. Those Thai’s sure know what they’re doing.”
“How about a pedicure and manicure later this afternoon?” Liz had trouble keeping the towel around her body with her big fat belly. She held it there as they walked out of the room
“I want to get a bikini wax or that electrolysis thing at some point,” Maria yawned, “Maybe that can be for tomorrow.”
“Yeah, I want to get that done too,” Liz scratched her head, “Okay see you soon,” they separated to go into two different rooms where their baths were ready. Max had given them specific orders to give Maria and her the best treatment, with special privileges. He wanted to spoil his wife and right now Liz was glad he was.
“Hey miss,” a lady in a white uniform walked up and touched her arm, “Do you need help getting in?”
Liz laughed, “I wish I didn’t but I I’m afraid I do.” It was hard to keep moving around right now, this baby was causing her grief.
The lady helped her into the bath and Liz felt like disabled. Then the lady spread a cucumber face mask over Liz’s face and put too pieces of cucumber on her eyes.
“Thank you,” Liz smiled.
“Sweet as,” the girl chuckled, “Do you want me to get you anything?”
“No thanks this is more than enough,” Liz let her body slide down and relax.
The lady left the room and Liz shuffled through the magazines and books they had placed to the side. She picked up a book entitles, Love is a story- A new theory on relationships.
Intrigued she opened it and started reading.


“You want me to have half of your business?” Kyle was shocked; he was shocked beyond belief.
Max sat down on the corner of his desk, “yeah,” he smiled, “It’s a bit unbelievable huh?”
A bit?
Kyle didn’t know what to say! This was a huge thing.
“I know that you’ll probably need time to think about it and consider your options but I want you to know this is something both Liz and I want because we trust you and…”
Kyle stopped him, “This is what both of you want? You are sure about this?” He sucked in a breath, “I mean Max this is your work! All of it, this is a huge thing. How long have you been thinking about this? It’s not just some over night decision is it? I don’t want you doing this if it’s not for certain what you want.”
Max smiled, that’s what a true and trusted friend did. Kyle could have said yes straight away, he could have been ecstatic about the opportunity of getting so much money. But no he was making sure his friend was sure about what he was doing and making sure he was sure of what he was doing. He was putting Max before himself.

That is what Max needed for this company. He knew that now more then ever.

“Kyle this is not an over night decision. I have been thinking about this since a while after me and Liz got engaged. I knew that I would need more time for her and more time for our kids if we had any. It was just this huge fluke that you came along at such a great time and Liz and me just see you as this huge sign…” he grinned, “We know we can trust you and we know that you’ll be here for us as a friend and a partner. You will benefit from this hugely and we want to do that for you. I realize it’s your life and you might not want to get in this deep but…”
“I can’t believe this…” Kyle was still in shock. This was one of the best opportunities he had ever had and he didn’t know what to do with himself. It was like someone was handing him a little silver platter with billions of dollars neatly stacked on it. Money wasn’t a huge thing. He wasn’t money hungry but he liked to have it and he liked to buy flash things but it was a necessity. Max was important to him right now not the money; he wanted to help him buddy out with his problem. This would be a big sacrifice on his behalf… he would be giving up a lot of free time and relationships… “I need time to think it over,” Kyle swallowed, “Don’t get me wrong I am pretty sure it’ll be a yes, I what to help you out but there’s just a few things I need to do and get out and think about.”

“I totally understand,” Max nodded, “I figured you would. I’m not going to push you into this without considering what you might be giving up. But remember how much you’ll be gaining Kyle.”
“I know what I’ll be gaining,” Kyle chuckled, “I mean of course I do!”
Max laughed, “It’s a lot to think about isn’t it? I’m happy to do this it’s just all up to you. I have a contract written up and ready to be signed with lawyers and everything all you need to do is say the word and half of every things yours…”
“Jeez Max how did you get into this?” Kyle ran his hand through his hair, “I can’t believe this, it’s all so overwhelming…”
Max stood up and walked over to his little bar, “I imagine it would be. Don’t feel pressured to say yes or to hurry about your decision…”

“No I don’t feel that way,” Kyle slumped back in his chair, “Your really serious? About all of this?” he rubbed his forehead, “This is a huge thing Max.”
“I know.” Max put a glass of vodka down in front of Kyle, “And I am ready to do it.”
Kyle swallowed, “This is all for Liz? She’s great and I can see what your trying to do but is this for yourself as well… not just her?”
Max thought he might ask him about that, “Liz is a part of me,” he answered honestly, “We may as well be one. This was a decision I made by myself and only told her about it a little while ago. I’m doing this for myself because I want to see my child grow up I don’t want to miss anything important. If I can help it than I will. I don’t like to admit it but I am doing this more for myself than I am for her…”
Kyle nodded, “You’re not a selfish person Max you shouldn’t feel bad about doing this for yourself.”
“I don’t,” Max chuckled, “I just don’t like to admit it to myself.”

Kyle smiled, “God you love her so much.” Max nodded. “You think I’ll ever find what you have?”
Max shrugged, “It’s possible,” he grinned, “But I don’t know if any girl will have you…” he laughed.
Kyle rolled his eyes, “Oh yes but you’ll see if I take this job every woman may want me too and I might be on Calvin Klien ads too.”
Max shook his head, “What is it with people and those Calvin Klien ads?” he exclaimed, “It was one photo shoot!”
“Yes right…” Kyle laughed.
“You know,” Max’s face turned back to serious, “You were the only one who didn’t warn me about Liz trying to get my money when you first met her.”
Kyle raised his eyebrows, “Really?” he folded his arms over his chest, “Well Liz is wonderful why would anyone think that about her? I could never see her doing something like that…”
Max smiled, “Thank you. I’m glad you saw it too.”
Kyle nodded, “She’s the one Max. She’s perfect for you, you’ll be together forever, don’t ever let her go.”
“Don’t plan to,” Max stood up, “I hate to do this but I have a meeting to get to in…” he looked at his watch, “Fifteen minutes so I…”
“I have to go to,” Kyle stood up, “I’ll think about it okay? I mean you can be pretty certain…”
“I’m glad,” Max walked over to the door and pulled his jacket off the hook on the wall. Kyle followed him to the door, “I can’t believe this, it’s all surreal.”
“No it’s real,” Max smiled, “This is all really happening.”


“Your still reading that,” Maria sat down on the side of Liz’s big bed, “What’s so great about it?”
Liz glanced at her, “It’s just… the couples in it are screwed up. There are so many things that can go wrong in a relationship. I can’t believe it. Did you know fifty percent of marriages in the America end in divorce? It’s unbelievable.”
“Yes I knew that,” Maria folded her legs, “But there’s nothing we can do about it…”
Liz sighed, “You don’t think that Max and I will…”
“Get a divorce?” Maria asked.
“Yeah, I mean I know we won’t but the thing that bothers me is the fact that these people thought they were soul mates too. How do we know in this day and age?”
Maria scratched her head, “I, I don’t know but I do know that true love does still exist and even though the chances are slimmer than ever right now, it still happens.”
Liz smiled, “You think me and Max…?”
“I know you and Max are soul mates,” Maria rapped her arm around Liz’s shoulders, “Look Liz maybe you shouldn’t read the stupid book anymore.”
“It’s not a stupid book it’s actually really good…” Liz started reading again, “Maybe I should ring Max.”
“I’m sure he’s coping fine without you,” Maria laughed.
“But what about me? I’m not doing okay…” Liz frowned.
“Just read your book,” Maria got up, “Night chinca.”
Liz smiled, “Night.” Once Maria left Liz put away the book and climbed under the blankets on her queen size bed. She turned off the bedside light and then put her head down on the pillow and closed her eyes. What now?
She didn’t have Max to snuggle into; she didn’t have anyone to kiss goodnight.

As she lay awake staring at the ceiling she thought about some of the stuff that was brought up in the book she had found.

There was some stuff in there that showed how happy relationships could be for the first months and how you can be so convinced that your partners the one and then they spot something else they want and anything can happen. You have to get someone who matches your ‘story’ and if they don’t then your relationship is destined for…well failure.
She was just left wondering now, was what she and Max had the true and real thing?
What right did she have to say that she and Max were soul mates when so many others thought and said the same thing and their relationships didn’t last?
She and Max had known each other for very long. They were engaged after two months of dating.
She hated thinking like this, she hated it a lot but was she right to wonder?
With all her fiber and all her heart she felt that Max was the one and she wanted no one else to be but how could a person be certain? Liz should stop reading into this so much; she should just take things as the come and pray for the best. Deep down she new nothing would change how she felt for Max. She could not imagine being with anyone else.


“You decided to come,” Max walked through to the front room of the house and greeted Michael as he carried his bag inside. It was two-thirty am.
“Yeah I did,” Michael grinned, “What are you doing up?”
Max yawned, “Couldn’t sleep. Why didn’t you call? I would have come and picked you up from the airport.” Max was wondering how Michael had gotten inside but dismissed it, it was too late to be thinking about stuff that probably had a logical explanation.
“I figured why call and disturb you and the Mrs.? I am capable of catching a cab,” He closed the front door.
“Liz isn’t here,” Max ran his hand through his hair. “She’s at this beauty spa with Maria. I sent her there for her birthday; it’s been hard on her staying her without Maria all the time. I thought she might like some alone time with her.”
“How decent of you,” Michael’s stomach grumbled, “Where’s the kitchen I’m starving?” Max led him to the kitchen and leaned against the bench.
Michael laughed, “So now that Liz is away you are left here and let me guess…” he opened the refrigerator, “You can’t sleep without her in your arms?”
Max smiled sheepishly.
“That’s sweet man it really is,” he pulled a plate with chicken on it out of the refrigerator and a beer, “Want a beer?”
Max thought about it, he really shouldn’t but he decided what the hell? He wasn’t going to get any sleep tonight anyway. “Sure. Anyway Maria said that you were coming earlier.”
“Yeah I got held up. Is Kyle sleeping?” Michael walked over to the pantry while eating a chicken leg.
“Of course he is,” Max yawned again, “I should be too.” Maybe he should just call Liz? No. She was a pregnant woman and she needed her sleep. It would be wrong of him to wake her up. He just had to keep convincing himself that.
He felt like a big baby needing his wife in the same bed as him when he slept, it was like needing your favorite teddy bear in you arms. Liz was not a teddy bear, she was alive and breathing and warm… he wanted to ring her. No, no he could not.

“He’s not going to be sleeping for long. Where is his room?” Michael filled a glass with water. Max rolled his eyes, “Your not going to…?”
“Why not? It’s a tradition,” Michael grinned, “Come on take me to his room or I’ll find it myself.”
Max laughed and led him to Kyle’s room. “If I had been asleep would you have done this to me too?”
“Na I thought Liz would be in there,” Michael opened Kyle’s bedroom door, “If I had known she wasn’t I would have.”
Max rolled his eyes.
Michael walked over to Kyle’s bed and poured the water in the glass of water over his face. Kyle woke up with a start, “God dam it!” he cried.
Max chuckled.
“Michael!” Kyle groaned, “No one else would be as horrible as to do such a thing…” he didn’t know whether to be happy to see Michael again or fucked off. “Oh you know you love it,” Michael grinned, “Get up.”
Kyle groaned, “Fuck off.”
“Hurry up!” Michael and Max left the room. Max went to he and Liz’s room to put some clothes on. He shouldn’t walk around in only boxer shorts. When he walked in he was hit with Liz’s smell and he almost drooled, it was so nice. It smelt like she was in there.
He really wished he hadn’t sent her away for a few days.
After he had put on some clothes he went back downstairs to the kitchen where Michael was getting out beers and junk food.


Liz sat up in bed with a huff. It was obvious she would not be getting any sleep tonight. Would she be like this for the rest of her life?
She sighed and rested her head on the headboard on her big bed. Big empty bed.
Was Max going through this too?
She wanted Max. She was getting Max- home sick.
Liz chuckled to herself, she was just being silly, and she should just lie down and fall asleep.
It’s not like she wasn’t tired. She was but she could not sleep. Maybe she could drive home and come back in the morning? No she could not.
Right now she wasn’t even thinking about all her insecurities from earlier she just wanted Max. When she saw him again she would not let him go anyway, work be damned.
Liz’s eyes felt heavy so she lay down again, the clock read quarter to four on a Sunday morning. She closed her eyes and breathe din, if she took slow even breaths and concentrated on nothing and stopped thinking maybe just maybe she could slowly drift off. Liz breathed in and breathed out and breathed in and breathed out… she could feel herself drifting off…


Liz towards Max’s office one afternoon, she was going to surprise him. He didn’t know she was coming. The secretary didn’t bother saying anything to her again, she knew better. Liz opened the door and gasped at the sight of Max kissing and unbuttoning some woman she didn’t knows clothes. “Max?” her eyes rimmed with tears.
His head shot in her direction, “Liz?” He exclaimed, “It’s not what it looks like!”
“Oh sure,” Liz whimpered.


Liz sprung up in bed and rubbed her eyes, oh my god she was so paranoid!
She looked at the clock, ten-to-four. She had been asleep for five minutes. FIVE MINUTES!
She wanted to scream in exasperation.
The disgusting dream replayed its self over and over and she wanted to scrub her brain clean, Max was not cheating on her. This was the books fault. She decided not to continue reading the book anymore.

ELEVEN

“God it’s hot out here,” Michael gulped down a whole can of beer and chucked the can back in the chilly bin. Kyle and him were outside on Max and Liz’s gold course- Max was at work. “I’m gonna get this one,” Kyle swayed his ass side to side then whacked the golf ball in front of him. It landed no where near the hole he was aiming for. “Damn it,” he gritted his teeth.
Michael laughed, “You suck at golf.”
“That’s nice, I didn’t notice,” Kyle grabbed a beer out of the chilly bin, “Anyway it’s not like your much better.”
“I am,” Michael picked up his club, “Max told me he want’s you to be his partner. I am personally insulted.”
“Why? Max would have asked you but you’ve got a growing business of your own.”
Michael had been a little surprised when Max had told him he asked Kyle to be his partner. He was slightly jealous but he did know Max’s reasons and Michael realized he wouldn’t take the job even if it had got offered to him. He stopped caring pretty quickly. “I know I’m joking. Are you going to take the job?” Michael sucked in a breath then whacked the ball he had put down on the ground earlier. It flew through the air and landed straight in the hole he wanted it to. “WAHOO DID YOU SEE THAT?” he screamed, “HOLE IN ONE BABY!” He jumped up and down.
Kyle laughed, “Not a modest winner are we?”
“NEVER!” Michael grinned, “That was incredible. If I can do it again you owe me a hundred bucks.”
“A hundred?” Kyle raised his eyebrows.
“Well your going to be a millionaire so you can start spending big right?” Michael lined his ball up again.
Kyle sighed, I don’t know…”
Michael shot up from what he was doing, “What do you mean you don’t know? You are going o take this job right?”
Kyle shrugged, “I want to but there’s a few things holding me back…”
Michael turned his attention back to the ball, “Like what?”
“Well…” Kyle folded his arms over his chest; “You know how Max is with Liz...?”
“Yeah completely pussy-whipped-”
Kyle rolled his eyes, “Well what if I met a girl I want that with and I can’t spend much time with her because of my work. I mean that’s Max’s problem, he doesn’t want to work so much…”
“Have you gotten even dumber over the years Kyle? Are you seriously telling me you are this dumb?” Michael rolled his eyes, “By you and Max both working together you’ll both have less work to do. You’ll be working with him, so you’ll share responsibilities… it won’t just be you doing everything. Max won’t have to work as much, just think about how much work he does now and split it in half, you get one half he gets the other. You will both have less work. You get what I’m saying?”
Kyle shook his head, “Yeah I guess your right…”
“I am right,” Michael whipped his hand across his forehead, “I’m always right.”
Kyle rolled his eyes, “Oh I’m sure…” He watched Michael practice swimnging the… “Are you going to hit it already?”
“Time,” Michael said, ‘Time my good friend, you can’t be rushed in a game like this,” he sucked in a breath then whacked the ball into the air. It landed in the hole again.
“Holy shit!” Michael exclaimed, “I’m incredible, I am a fucking…” Someone cleared his or her throat.
Michael turned around and was greeted by Maria and Liz who stood behind Kyle with their arms crossed over their chests, “Watch your language,” Liz said. Michael groaned.
“When did you become the golf pro?” Maria asked. Michael shrugged, “It’s a natural talent.”
“Is Max at work?” Liz asked. Kyle and Michael nodded. “How was the beauty spa?” Kyle asked.
Maria’s face lit up, “it was so good oh my god Liz tell them! It was incredible.”
“It was incredible,” Liz turned around and headed back up the grass to the house. Michael and Kyle frowned, “What’s wrong with her?” Michael scoffed.
Maria elbowed him, “Hormones, ass hole.”



“Liz come in the water babe.”
Maria swam up to Liz, whom sat on the side of the pool with her feet dangling lazily off the edge. She was wearing a jean dress that she had scrunched up her thighs so it wouldn’t get wet. “I don’t really feel like swimming,” Liz sighed then quietly added, “I don’t really feel like doing anything these days.”
“Oh Liz,” Maria put her wet hands on Liz’s thighs, “Your nearly nine months pregnant, it’s completely normal to feel tired and heavy all the time. You know that.”
Liz bit her lip to stop a sob but tears still filled her eyes; she was so emotional today.

Kyle sprinted past and did a huge bomb in the pool, when he came up from under the water he called, “Beat that Guerin!” They were so competitive all the time. Michael ran past seconds later and did a bomb as well. Liz felt plashes of water all over her face, arms and dress. She sighed.
Michael came up from under the water, “Mine was… bigger,” he let out a big breath. “That was not bigger,” Kyle argued, splashing him.
“Such children,” Maria rolled her eyes. “MARIA! Whose splash was bigger?” Michael called.
“You can’t ask her, your dating her!” Kyle huffed.
“They were both the same,” Maria said, “Now shut up would you?”
Liz couldn’t help but chuckle at their immaturity, even in her present state of depression it was funny. How old were they again?
“Will you be okay here?” Maria asked. Liz nodded, “Yeah I’ll be fine.” Maria nodded then swam over to the guys.
Liz glanced at her watch- it was six thirty. She hoped Max would be home soon, she needed to set her eyes, hands, on him. After three sleep-deprived nights she only wanted to snuggle up on his lap and fall asleep.
She had told the cook to have dinner ready by seven-thirty. It was hard to know when Max would be home, she just hoped he would not be any later then that.
Maria shrieked from the other side of the pool; Liz turned to look what was going on. Michael was lifting her up onto his shoulders and even through all the screaming, ‘No Michael!’ ‘This isn’t funny!’ ‘Put me down,’ you could tell they were both enjoying themselves. Liz was so happy for them… when was Michael going to propose to her anyway?
She rolled her eyes; not every couple got married after a few months of dating. Some took years to make such a big commitment. She just had to remember every couple was not she and Max. The book she had been reading at the health spa certainly proved that. It really was a good book… what was the name of it again? Maybe she could buy it and finish reading it later on…
She heard footsteps approaching and she knew who it was. Instead of a happy smile spreading across her face, tears stung her eyes and her lips trembled. What was wrong with her?
Familiar hands landed on her shoulders and then slowly slid down her arms. When the loving hands reached hers they intertwined their fingers and squeezed them together, Liz stopped breathing. They pulled her hands up, up, up and then they slowly pulled her to her feet. Liz wobbled before getting her balance. She felt lips brush against the skin of her neck and a tear dripped down her check, she didn’t deserve to be this lucky. The hands pulled away from hers and Max stepped closer to the pool, he sat down and folded his legs then reached for her, Liz willingly came. He grasped her hips and gently pulled her down so she was sitting on his lap, he rubbed his hands up and down her back then moved forward to caress her belly. Liz closed her eyes and more tears continued to fall. Finally Max rapped his arms around her stomach tightly and pressed her back against his chest… he buried his head in her hair and she heard him suck in a breath. A whimper escaped her lips and she put her hands up to wipe away her tears, she felt embarrassed by her silly behavior but she couldn’t stop crying. Max was obviously shocked she was crying so he let go of his grip around her belly and turned her head to face him, Liz closed her eyes to hide her red eyes. She bit her lip to keep a sob from escaping and Max obviously knowing she was on the verge of breaking down, kissed her forehead and turned Liz’s body to face the left. He rapped his arms around her whole body and Liz buried her face in his neck, she started to let it all out. Max buried his head in her hair and even though he didn’t completely understood was going on, whispered it’s okay, everything is fine.
Maria noticed them and held her hands over her chest, they were so beautiful. Michael howled and she smacked him, “Ass!” she whispered, “leave them alone…”
Michael rolled his eyes. Kyle suggested they leave and Maria agreed.
They left the room quietly and efficiently. Max and Liz didn’t even notice they were gone, they were oblivious to anything.

Liz’s tears began to stop flowing and her sobs subsided, to carry on crying you need to know the reason your upset and since she didn’t understand why she was upset she felt no need to continue. She lifted her head and buried it in the skin of Max’s neck; he ran his hand through her hair. “You okay?” he whispered lovingly. Liz sucked in a breath and then nodded, she didn’t want to talk or move just yet.


After dinner Maria, Michael and Kyle decided to go to a club in town. Maria had said it was because she wanted to check out what clubs were like in places other then America but Liz knew she was leaving because she wanted give her and Max some time alone. Before they left Liz pulled her best friend aside and thanked her; Maria nodded and quickly hugged her. When they were gone Liz carried her tired self up to her and Max’s room and got into some flannel pajama pants with little sheep jumping over fences on them. She also put on a grey jersey and some socks.
When she went back downstairs Max had made her a hot chocolate with a marsh mellow floating in it, he had also set up the entertainment room so they could watch a movie. Liz couldn’t remember the last time they had been able to just sit down and enjoy each other’s presence, “Sit down and get comfortable, I’ll be right back,” Max kissed her forehead then hurried out of the room. Liz went and looked at what DVD he had put in; it was A knight’s tale. She was satisfied with that so she went and sat down on the couch, there was a big puffy duvet waiting for her and she pulled it over her legs.
When Max came back, he was no longer in his work suit but in a dark grey jersey, much like the color of hers, and comfortable back pants. He handed a bowl of microwave popcorn to her and grabbed the DVD remote. It felt like an eternity before he finally sat down next to her.
“I’m going to go see Allen tomorrow,” Liz got comfortable with her head against his chest. He rapped his arm around her shoulder and brought her closer, “Liz I don’t know if I want you going back there…”
Liz looked up at him, “I need to check on her, I don’t want her to think I don’t want to be friends just because she had and argument with her husband when we were there.”
Max persisted, “But…” Liz cut him off,
“Don’t worry I’ll be fine, he’s not even there during the day,” she pecked his lips, “Start the movie will you?”
Max started the movie; “I still don’t want you going.”
Liz didn’t want to get into an argument with him, “Max I don’t even know if I’ll go, my feet are too swollen for me to walk much anymore,” she chuckled, “It’s so awful.”
Max was glad she was in a better mood then earlier, “Let me give you a foot rub,” he offered. Liz smiled, “Really? What do you know about foot rubs?”
“Enough,” Max smiled back, he was so glad to see her smiling again he couldn’t help but kiss her. Liz brought her legs up from under the blanket and rested them on Max’s thighs; she rested her back against the arm of the couch. Max started rubbing her ankles then worked on her heels and so on. They watched the movie.

Max rubbed her feet for half and hour and then she crawled back into his arms and got comfortable, “I love you,” she pecked his lips, “I feel so much better now.”
Max nodded, “You don’t know how glad I am… pop corn?” he handed the bowl to her. Liz laughed, “Why I’d love some pop corn Mr. Evan’s.”
It was so good to just be able to relax and be together like this for a change. Usually their lives were so rushed and even when they were alone together, it felt like they were in a hurry because Max had to go to work or something like that. Liz looked forward to more times like these. “Oh,” Liz suddenly said, “I presume you talked to Kyle about…?”
“I did, yes,” Max ate a piece of popcorn.
“Well?” Liz asked, “How’d he take it, did he say yes?”
Max shrugged, “I told him to think about, he said he was pretty sure he would say yes but he had stuff he needed to consider before he made any final decisions.”
“Like what?” Liz wondered.
“I don’t know,” Max stretched his legs out further,
“Well, I told you he’d say yes,” she nudged his side, “Didn’t I? I told you…”
“He hasn’t said yes yet, Liz,” Max reminded her of the obvious, “All we can do is hope he will…”
Liz rolled her eyes, “Your crazy, of course he will!” she chuckled, “You’re a silly man, you really are. You’ll see he’ll say yes and you won’t have to work as much and who knows maybe you’ll even be there when I give birth to our child… it’s a long shot but…”
“I WILL be there Liz,” he frowned, “Of course I will, that is like missing a…”
“Don’t make promises you can’t keep Max, you don’t know for certain that you will be there, please don’t make a prom…” Max cut her off, “I can’t believe we’re having this conversation! I will be there Liz please don’t say that I won’t, god…”
Liz knew that he was trying to convince himself not her, she felt bad for him. She had figured out that there was a good chance he wouldn’t be there a long time ago, obviously he was still convinced some miracle would happen and he’d magically have free-time.
“I will loose everything we have if I have to Liz, don’t think I won’t be…” He buried his head in her hair, “Please, I promise I will be there.”
‘I wish I could believe that one,’ Liz thought, “Okay, okay,” she tried to calm him down, “Don’t worry…”
Max sucked in a breath; “I’m a wreck when I’m with you, stop it will you! You will kill me and then what would you do huh?”
“Don’t talk about death,” Liz’s heart beat quickened, “Just don’t.” She couldn’t bare the thought of Max dying…
Max rapped his arms around her tighter; “Okay I’m sorry.”
“You should be,” Liz sucked in a breath and ran her hand through her hair, “What’s the time?” she yawned. She sat up and rapped her arms around herself. The movie was still on but they had lost interest in it a little while ago. Not that it was a bad movie, no; it was just the fact they couldn’t be alone in a room together with out focusing completely on each other. Whether it be in a sexual way or a conversational way.
“Quarter to eleven,” Max answered. He kicked off the blanket and pushed the sleeves of his jersey up to his elbows, “Come here,” he instructed.
Liz shuddered, “no,” she said quietly.
Max stared at her puzzled, “What do you mean, no?” he grabbed her arms from behind, “Come here woman!” he pulled at her jersey. Liz didn’t even have to move he was strong enough to pull her to him. He lay her down on her back and then lay down beside her. They shared a loving, adoring, beautiful, magical, kiss. “I haven’t slept in three days, you know?” Max said after he broke he kiss. He was so tired he was afraid he’d pass out, “I can’t sleep without you that’s what you do to me now. You’ve taken over every aspect of my life.”
“That’s the way it should be,” she smiled. “But I haven’t slept either.”
Max raised his eyebrows, “You haven’t? Oh no that’s horrible. You’re going to get plenty of sleep tonight! I’ll make sure of it.”
“I’m sure you will,” Liz rolled her eyes.
Max sat up, “In fact, we better get you to bed right now,” he crawled off the bed, “To sleep only,” he clearly added. Liz raised her eyebrows, “Na it’s okay I’ll stay here, you can go. I want to see more Heath…”
Max picked up the remote and turned off the movie. Liz huffed.
He grabbed her arms and heaved her off the bed and to her feet, “come on, or do I have to carry you?”
“You won’t get the chance,” Liz ran around him and out of the room. She wasn’t running very fast because it was to hard on her big body. Max went after her, “Liz come back here,” he instructed her.
“No thanks,” She sucked in a breath and ran through the front room to the lounge next to the dinning room. Max caught her and wrestled her carefully to the couch. “That’s not fair your stronger than me,” she struggled to get away.
“Thank god,” Max pinned her down with his knee’s and hands, “If I wasn’t I’d be in real trouble…”
Liz stopped struggling, “Damn you.”
Could they be having more fun? They both loved being alone together and being able to be silly and just play around all they wanted. It reminded them of their first night together after they had made love. They had been so carefree.
“Will you go to bed now?” Max sucked in a breath and fought to keep his body up in the air and not on hers, he had to be careful with everything he did with her, he didn’t want to danger the baby or hurt her.
“I don’t…”
Max shook his head, “Your just merciless,”
“I am indeed,” Liz tried to heave him off her once again but she was no match for his strong and rippled body.
“Your not going to get away…” Max fought the need to kiss her and rap his arms around her.
The front door slammed, “You guys are just so, argh!” they heard Maria’s agitated voice. Liz sucked in a breath and looked up at Max, he rolled his eyes. She leaned up and pecked his lips, “Get off me love will you?” she blushed. Max got up off her and slumped back into the sofa with a sigh. Liz sat up and leaned her back against the arm of the couch.
“Maybe we should go live in… Italy where no one knows us and no one can inerrupt us,” Max brought his legs up to rest on the couch; Liz curled into his side and put her head on his shoulder, “No I have an Aunt living there, think of somewhere else,” she smiled.
“You do?” Max ran his hand over her belly, “What about London?”
“Sounds good to me,” Liz put her hand over his.
Maria came stomping through the room and only noticed them when she was half way across the room. “Oh,” she jumped and put her hands over her chest, “You gave me a fright.”
Liz moved her head away from Max’s shoulder, “How come your back so early, I didn’t think you’d be back till….?”
“I’m never going anywhere with both of them again,” Maria put her hans on her hips, “Oh you two are so cute! Sitting there with the same jersey and the same color hair… you look like you should be in a movie or something.” Liz blushed.
“Oh, hey guys,” Kyle popped his head in through the door, “see ya in the morning,” you only slightly saw the departing figure of him and some girl.
Max frowned, “Who was that…?”
“Oh her?” Maria asked, “Some girl he picked up at the bar.”
Liz chuckled, “How appropriate.”
“Yeah well…” Maria sat down, “You guys want to go eat some ice cream with me or…?”
“Where’s Michael?” Max asked.
“Oh who cares,” Maria huffed, “So are you joining me?”
Liz opened her mouth to say something but Max spoke before her, “No thanks Maria we were just about to go to bed, we’ll see you in the morning.”
Maria shrugged, “Sweet as. Sleep tight.” Max got up off the couch and a grumpy Liz followed, “What if I wanted ice cream?” she sulkily followed him to the door. “You’re going to sleep,” Max wasn’t going hear any more about it.
Maria laughed when she saw him scoop down and pick her up then carry her to their room.


In the morning when Liz woke up she was alone in bed. She quickly put on a robe and walked down stairs whist she rubbed her lower back to rid it of it’s constant aching.
When she got to the dinning room she expected to find everyone in there but instead she only found a skinny blonde girl eating toast and reading the news paper. Liz frowned, “Um… hi?”
The girls head shot up and she dropped her toast, “hi,” she said quietly, “I’m sorry I was just leaving I didn’t…”
“Not it’s fine,” Liz walked over to the table, “Who are you? Where you with Kyle…?”
The girl nodded, “Yeah I was just finishing this before I left, he had to go to work and said I should…”
Liz chuckled, “How rude of him. Anyway I’m Liz.”
“I’m Vicky.”
“Well Vicky stay as long as you want. I’d love some company, you didn’t happen to see Max leave with him? Tall, dark….”
Vicky nodded; “you mean Max Evan’s?” she sucked in a breath, “Jeez I had no idea he lived here.”
Liz chuckled, “He’s my husband.” She took and seat, “And unfortunately he left without waking me up and he’ll hear about it later.”
Vicky chuckled, “How cute. How long have you been married?”
“Beginning of the year,” Liz rested her head in her hands and rubbed her eyes, “So he left with Kyle?”
“Yeah he did,” Vicky said.
“Damn him,” Liz sighed. “So… do you live near by or in town?”
Vicky finished her toast and drink, “Yeah in town. Look I should get going, thanks letting me…”
“It’s not a problem,” Liz smiled.
“See ya later,” Vicky picked up her plates and headed to the kitchen.
