Summary: Max's thoughts, feelings after Liz abandons him
Feedback: Always, always appreciated and welcome...

Dear Liz,

I hate you.

You walk out of my life, like its ok, like you don’t see me dying inside. Like you still love me. And I let you.

I hurt you, and you’ll never forgive that, remember? That’s what Maria screamed the morning after she found out I had slept with Tess. She marched into my room, and began screaming at me, throwing stuff at me, and you know what? I let her. I sat there, silently, looking at the ground, as she yelled, shoved, and cursed at me. I let her. Wanna know why?

Because I knew I deserved it. She hit me a dozen times, and more tmes than that, I wished it was you.

I wish it was you. I wish it was you I had lost my virginity to. I wish it was you who hit me and screamed at me when it wasn't. Did I ever tell you that Tess cried after we made love? No, wait, there was no love involved. It was just sex. Yeah, she cried. Probably out of joy, or something. I wanted to cry too, but for a totally different reason. See, I don’t need you to be mad at me, because I think I hate myself enough for the both of us. That’s hard to belive, huh?

I’ll bet. I wouldn't trust me if I were you. I wouldn't touch me with a five foot rod, if I were you.

But you did. You trusted me again, touched me, let me touch you. Why? I don’t deserve it. I don’t deserve you. I’m glad you realized that. I’m glad you left.

I don’t sit up, night after night, watching the darkness, missing you so much, that its actually a pysical ache that I cant crush. I don’t feel a stone in my throat, when anyone mentions your name in passing. I don’t avoid eating at the Crashddown because I nearly cried the last time I tried to go in there.

I don’t. Because… because I don’t deserve you, and I’m smart enough to know it.

I can live without you.



Placing his pen on the floor beside him, Max buried his hands in his hair.

And began to weep softly.


Just a little S3 inspiration...

Tell me what you think, and as always, critisizm(sp) is welcome.

no, no, no.... see, that's why he starts to cry... because he's writing all this mean stuff to Liz that he doesnt really believe, or feel...

I was aiming for a totally dreamer-y fic. Thaks for the Feedback, anyway... and I'm sorry its so sob-by. I never enjoy reading short, aimless sad fics
