Rating: That is yet to be decided.
Category: Max and Liz. If you have read any of my fan fictions before you would know that.
Summary: This story is set in a Christian boarding home / school in USA. Max, Michael, Isabel, Maria, Liz and Maria all go there. Max has only recently come to the home and finds himself breaking all the rules he has ever been given, all for one person.
Authors notes: I am attempting something new in this story so bare with me. I am not Christian and I don’t want anyone to either not read this because it will have tiny bits of god worshipping and I don’t want Christians to turn away from this story because of some of the bad Christian situations. I am trying to please all!
ALSO please note that there are no aliens in this fic and Max and Isabel are not brother and sister.
The gang is not a group. (YET).
Feedback: I am a strong believer in people getting praised for their hard work, won’t you join me in this belief? .
Max sighed, He was 15 for god’s sake, why would any 15-year-old boy want to live at school?
Right now he was walking down the very empty, very dark and very cold wooden floored corridor. He had no idea where he was going; he just needed to get away from his room for a little while he couldn’t sleep.
It was around 1am and he would probably be in trouble by one of the nuns if they happened to catch him. That wouldn’t be to good, being in trouble on his 2nd day at his new home.
He shared a room with two guys whom he hadn’t said any thing to. He knew their names were Michael and Alex and they were good roommates, they weren’t too messy, and they didn’t play music too loud and didn’t hog all the hot water they had to share.
They weren’t rude and they had accepted him straight away, he couldn’t have asked for more.
He hated his parent’s for putting him here in this school, they had said his morals were wrong and he needed to get his act together. He told them he didn’t consider them family any more.
He hadn’t talked to them since and he probably never would again.
He had moved here from Boston and so far he couldn’t complain, sure he was looked after by a bunch of nuns and they could be strict at times and he had basically no privacy, but he could be alone if he tried hard enough and whenever he ate it had to be in complete silence. It was hard not to laugh at the meals, everyone in the dinning hall would end up taking about an hour to eat because they chewed to slowly, careful not to make much noise.
Every morning and night there was a half an hour-long prier on top of having to pay with the nuns before every meal. But other than that he was happier here then he would be with the shit heads that called themselves his parent’s back home.
Max rubbed his hands over his bare arms and watched the smoke come out of his mouth every time he breathed. He should have grabbed a jersey when he left his room but he hadn’t thought about it at the time. So he was left wearing just grey baggy pants that hanged down, they were a bit to long for him. And a t-shirt.
Max and his ‘parent’s’ were Christians but not as much as 90% of the people in this place. He didn’t know if he believed in god even though he had been brought up to believe in him his whole life.
He was at that time in his life when he just wanted to let life lead him and just wait and see where he ended up.
The sound of giggling snapped him out of his thoughts and he looked behind him and to the left. He didn’t know where it was coming from but curiosity took the best of him and he kept looking around.
After giving up he turned around and started heading back to his room, but he heard a door behind him begin to open, the light from a room creep across the wall to his right as a door slowly opened completely.
“Shh” someone whispered.
He turned around just in time to see three girls sneak out of their room and down the hall directly in front of him. They mustn't have seen him he thought.
He couldn’t help but take this opportunity to follow them. It was quiet hard to see them in the dark but they made enough noise.
After a little while he realised where they were going, the kitchen.
He hadn’t been at the school for that long but he had learnt the basic routes to things.
All of sudden his foot tripped over something and he stumbled a little bit “Dam” he gripped his foot, he must have hit a loose floor board or something.
His trip didn’t go unnoticed by the girls because they all let out squeals and started running back towards their room.
Since it was so dark none of them could actually see him and one of them ran smack into him. Their foreheads hit each other’s, “OW!” Both of them exclaimed as they held their foreheads.
“Liz? Liz?! are you alright, Oh no Isabel where is Liz?” Some ones histerical voice cried.
“Maria I’m right here!” Liz said.
Max stood their awkwardly, “Sorry for scaring you” He said, that’s the only thing he could think off to say.
“Who are you?” She asked.
“Um... Max, I’m kin of new, I was just.... I couldn’t sleep” He rubbed his palm over the lump on his forehead.
“Liz are you alright? who are you talking to?” Isabel's voice called.
“Look.... Max sorry for interrupting your walk..”
“Liz?!” Maria exclaimed.
“Come” Liz grabbed Max’s arm “I’ll get ice for our heads” she pulled him down the hall “Maria, Iz I’ll be right back!” she called.
“WHAT? Liz where are you going?” Isabel asked.
“To get ice” She answered.
“Uh.....Liz it’s fine....really, I’ll just go back to bed” Max said, her hand felt like it was burning a whole in his arm.
“No I made this happen it’s the least I can do” Liz reached the kitchen door and pushed it open. She reached for the wire hanging from the light bulb and the light flickered on slowly.
Liz’s breath caught in her throat as she looked into the eyes of the guy in front of her. He was tall, had dark hair and was built like a Greek god. What she noticed most of all was his eyes, they were like brown pools of mystery.
Max swallowed back the lump that had formed in his throat. Liz, the girl he had just bumped into in the pitch black hall way was the most beautiful girl he had ever seen. She was a goddess, she had long brown hair and a beautiful figure. She wore a white tank top, grey baggy pants and a pink silk robe.
His gaze was locked on hers and he couldn’t pull away from the force of her gaze.
Liz broke the silence, “Um I’ll just get...ice” she stumbled backwards not taking her eyes off his and bumped into the steal bench behind her. She quickly turned around and hurried over to the big freezer that was at her right against the wall.
Max took that moment to catch his breath back. What had just happened?!, how long had they been standing there looking at each other? questions screamed at him in his mind, all he knew was that as soon as the light had come on revealing her to him, he had frozen. Her beauty had taken him by surprise.
Liz leaned into the big freezer, her mind also asking her eyes questions and demanding answers a mile a minute.
She fumbled around in the freezer forgetting what she had gone in there to get. All she could remember was his eyes, those...eyes had captured her and engulfed her in a matter of seconds. She saw and worked with guys every day but him, there was something about him that drew her closer to him.
‘Stop it Elizabeth Parker, just get the ice!’ her logical mind screamed at her.
‘Ice’ that was what she had been looking for, she grabbed the bag from the freezer and slammed it shut.
She went over to the paper towel dispenser and plopped 4 pieces of ice onto a few pieces of towel.
She rapped it up then took the bag back to the freezer and turned to walk back over to Max. Had she really only met this guy a few minutes ago? it seemed like she had known him her whole life.
Max slipped down onto one of the stools as she walked over to him, she handed him the ice their fingers brushing and sending electrical currents through heir bodies causing them both to shiver in shock.
Liz stumbled back and leaned up against the bench again.
“Um what about yourself? you look like you have a nasty lump there too” He said motioning to her forehead.
“Right” She said “me, ice, oh yeah, um I’ll just go back...” Liz turned around embarrassed and headed back over to the freezer.
“Stupid, stupid, STUPID!” She hit her palm against her forehead hitting the lump “Ow”.
“Pardon?” Max asked.
Liz turned her head slightly “Nothing, just... getting ice” She spun around to the freezer, “Stupider, stupider, stupider” She mumbled as she opened the freezer door.
‘Why don’t you just slam the freezer door on your head right now?!’ her mind said, ‘He probably thinks your a crazy little scary girl and he wants to get away from you right NOW!’.
Liz hated her mind sometimes, it was so harsh to her.
After getting ice for her head she walked back over to Max and slipped herself onto the metal bench.
Max was to busy watching her and a piece of ice fell from this paper tissue he held on his head. Liz chuckled “Hold it like this” She motioned him with her own ice.
“Like this?” He asked.
Liz chuckled again “no” She said, he fumbled with it until all the ice fell out and cracked on the tiled floor.
This caused Liz to laugh and Max to frown, “Here” She slipped of the bench exposing a tiny bit of the warm and inviting skin of her stomach. This did not go unnoticed by Max.
She walked over to him and pulled the ice from her forehead and leaned up placing it on his own lump.
“There” She whispered her face close to Max’s as she tippee toed to hold it on his forehead.
“Thanks” Max said his eyes darting to hers.
‘Here we go again’ Liz’s mind said as she got lost in his gaze.
‘in’, ‘out’, ‘in’, ‘out’ every breath that slipped out of her mouth, ( which by the way was extremely close to his) traumatized him. It was like she was hypnotising him, drawing and pulling him closer to her... She licked her lips slowly, her tongue glossing the surface of her bottom lip as it glided across the red fullness. His eyes dug deeper into her soul, she could feel him invading her and taking her mind.
“Liz?!” A voice heard to their left pulled them away from their moment.
Liz pulled her hand away from Max’s fore head as she turned around to see Isabel and Maria standing in the door way.
“Iz, Maria” She said “hi” She stumbled backwards, yet again backing into the steal bench.
“Who’s this?” Maria asked a grin spreading across her face.
“Max” Liz whispered.
“Who?” Isabel asked.
“Max” Liz repeated.
“Max?” Maria walked over and stood next to a blushing Liz. Isabel soon followed.
“Um..hi” Max slipped off the stool in the kitchen and also blushed.
“IS your forehead alright chinca?” Maria turned to face Liz, “Oh at least it isn’t as big as his lump” she said.
Max frowned and Isabel laughed “She’s kidding”.
“Oh” Max bit his lip.
“Jeez it’s cold, come on Liz lets get back to our room, if the nuns catch us up, let alone in the kitchen we will get punished” Maria said, “Um by the way Max, I’m Maria and that’s Isabel, see ya around” She dragged Liz out of the kitchen.
“Yeah um bye” Max said.
Liz looked back at him as they dragged her away and their eyes caught before she disappeared into the dark.
Once Max got back to his room and into bed, he found himself more awake then before.
He couldn’t get her out of his head.
She had been so beautiful, her long hair was so shiny and flowed down her shoulders like an inviting blanket. Her eyes were amber and had just taken over all his senses in a second, he felt like he could just dive into them and float around.
His hand glided across the little lump on his forehead and he smiled. Her face had been so close to his and he had just wanted to reach out to her and engulf her in his arms and put his lips on hers.
He had never kissed a girl before. He hadn’t been popular at his old school, so he had never had a chance, and you never kissed a girl until you had been going out with her for a long time, not when you had just meet them!.
A smile spread across his face and he rolled onto his side, he wondered what she was doing right now.
“Nothing happened, I was just holding ice on his forehead!” Liz flopped back onto her bed after being raided with questions from Isabel and Maria.
“It’s just your faces were VERY close and you were staring into each others eyes like there was no tomorrow!, how could we not think that something had happened?” Isabel hopped into her bed and pulled the covers up to her chin.
“SO what did you guys talk about?” Maria asked turning off the light.
“Basically nothing and I made a huge fool of myself” Liz mumbled “He probably thinks I’m some kind of retard”.
‘He does, believe me he does’ her mind said. ‘SHUT UP!’ Liz screamed in her head.
“I have issues” Liz said.
“What was so special about this guy Liz, I mean he’s cute and all but.......... you really like him don’t you?” Isabel asked rolling onto her side so she was facing Liz.
“I don’t know, it’s just his eyes ...... it’s nothing don’t worry, I need to sleep, we have church tomorrow and I want to be wide awake” Liz closed her eyes and all she could see was His face as the ice dropped from the paper towel. It had been so cute! and it had been so funny.
He’s probably was asleep now, NOT even thinking about her.
“Hey Max what happened to your forehead?” Alex asked.
Max sat up in bed and yawned, “I walked into to something last night when I was going toilet” he slipped his foot over the edge of the bed and stood up.
“Bummer” Michael imputed.
“Yeah” Max walked into the bathroom and flicked on the light so he could see the big bruise on his head.
It was really big and really noticeable, but he didn’t care, because she had put it there.
His dreams had been full of her, she had been his wife and they had a little daughter.
He smiled at the thought of that ever happening and flicked the light off.
“Max, you wanna come down to breakfast with us in a few minutes?” Alex asked as he walked into the bathroom holding a towel.
“Sure” Max said walking over to the trunk at the end of his bed. He pulled it open and looked for some clothes.
“You don’t know much about the school yet do you?” Michael asked.
“Not really” Max frowned.
“Well you have to wear a tie to church, so you may as well put one on now, and whenever we have classes we have to wear a white shirt and black pants, any other time we are allowed to wear what ever we want, as long as its appropriate”.
“Thanks, I’ll remember that” Max said pulling out some black pants a tie and a white shirt. His parent’s must have known these rules because they had packed everything he needed.
After getting ready all of them headed down the hall. The bedrooms were upstairs and all of them were lined up on the left and on the right were windows. Halfway down the hall there was a large stair case that lead down to a area that had a door leading to the dinning hall, one leading to a games room, one to a library and one leading to the church.
Upstairs at the end of the hall was two big wooden doors that had two glass patterned windows on them.
The lights hang from the ceiling and all the walls were wooden along with the floors and the doors.
The building had the whole olden age house design going on.
As they walked down the large staircase it was like you were entering a small ballroom and everyone was at the bottom watching you.
As they reached the bottom of the staircase Max looked back on it, it was a very magnificent. Lots of people were coming down it to get to the dinning room, they were all wearing their church clothes.
He got into line and picked up a plate waiting to be served his food. After getting his meal he took a seat in between Alex and Michael.
They had to wait for everyone to be seated and till the nuns were ready to lead the prier.
After the prier they were allowed to eat in silence.
Max’s eyes were darting around looking for Liz. He had no idea where she was sitting but he hoped he could see her beautiful face.
After a few minutes of searching he finally found her. She was sitting with Isabel and Maria her room mates.
She was to focused on eating to notice him but he didn’t mind, he didn’t even know if she had given his a second thought.
Liz swallowed her spoonful of porridge and wiped her mouth. She had dreamed about him last night. They had been married and they had a little son. She smiled at sipped her drink. ‘Like that will ever happen’ her mind told her.
More like she told herself, a lot of the time it seemed like she had a little person in her head back chatting to every comment she made, it got annoying. She wondered if it were good conscious or her bad conscious.
‘I’m both honey’ her mind told her, Liz sighed was she crazy, or did everyone talk to themself?.
She looked up and glanced around the room. Her eyes fell on one person on the other side of the room. Max.
He was eating next to two guys. She blushed when he looked up and caught her staring at him. He smiled and Liz did too before looking back down at her food.
After breakfast everyone headed into the church and Max tried to push through the small group of people to get to Liz, maybe he could sit with her?.
By the time he saw her again she was already sitting in between yet again Maria and Isabel.
He sighed and took a seat next to some guy and focused at the front.
“Hi” Max spun around after hearing her voice on his way back to his room.
Liz blushed as he turned around to face her.
“Oh hey” Max smiled.
“I was wondering if you needed a tour around the school or something?” She asked.
“Um sure” He said, “Actually you can probably answer a question I’ve been trying to answer” He turned and started walking and she walked beside him.
“Yeah of corse what is it?” Liz asked.
“You see those doors?” Max pointed to the doors with the patterned glass on them, “I was wondering where they lead” He looked down at her.
She was wearing the grey dress that all the girls had to wear. It had thick straps over her shoulders and had two buttons holding it against the front on the dress.
It flowed down her body to her ankles. She wore a white blouse under it and the little silver cross she ware around her neck was flat against the skin at the hollow of her neck.
Her hair was down and she had a bit on each side of her head twisted back into a clip at the back of her head. Max thought she looked beautiful. But she would look beautiful wearing anything.
“Um, it leads to more rooms except they are for the 17 and 18 year olds, you see the house is split up into age groups. We are in the 15 to 16 year old quarters, no one comes in here apart from the people our age, we aren’t allowed into their quarters either. We all use the same church except it has different entrances for the older groups” Liz explained wonderfully.
“Their are about fifty people our age in this quarter, they don’t except everyone who want’s to come to this boarding school, they have to see potential and stuff like that. They won’t let any more than fifty people be in one quarter at once so no one new will be excepted this year”.
“So we will be here until we are 17?” Max asked.
“I turn 16 in a month” The both said at the same time.
“Really?” Liz chuckled “What date is your birthday?” she asked.
“June 12, why what’s yours?” Max asked.
“June 14th” Liz smiled.
“So when we are 17 we’ll have to move all our things down to the next quarters?” Max asked. Liz nodded. “That seems kind of silly if you ask me”.
Liz laughed “Yeah well, I don’t think theirs anything we can do about it” She leaned back against the stair case.
“How long have you been going here?” Max asked leaning next to her.
“Since I was 12” Liz answered, “When did you get here?”
“Only yesterday morning” he answered.
“Oh so your only just getting used to this place” Liz yawned and ran her hand through her hair.
“Yeah” Max smiled “So what were you and the other two girls doing last night?” he asked.
Liz blushed “Nothing, just couldn’t sleep like you”.
Max frowned “Really, or is that a lie?”.
“No it’s not a lie it’s an altered truth, because I don’t want you to know” Liz blushed more.
Max laughed “Ok I don’t need to know” he folded his arms, “So what happens now?”
Liz looked into his eyes “Pardon?” She asked her breath catching in her throat.
“Well for the rest of the day, do we just hang around inside?” He asked.
“Oh” Liz blushed “well you can do that if you want to or you can go outside on the property only, but most of us go into town with Lillian and have ice cream and buy things we need”.
“How do you get money for this?” he asked.
“Well most people get money sent from their parent’s, I get a hundred dollars a month from my father” She answered.
“Oh ok, I wonder if I will get any” He mumbled.
“Just ask Lillian” Liz stopped leaning against the stair case and turned to face him, “Are you coming into town?” She asked.
“Yeah” He smiled.
“Well maybe I could show you around there a bit?” She asked blushing.
“That would be great”.
Max tried to focus on listening to the prier but he couldn’t with her sitting next to him!
They had spent the afternoon in town getting to know each other. First they had gone to the ice cream shop with everyone and he had learnt her favourite ice cream, orange chocolate chip. And then they went around the shops, followed by Isabel and Maria who were chatting happily behind them the whole time.
He found out he got One hundred and fifty dollars every month and a half. It wasn’t as much money as Liz got but he didn’t care at least he got he got that much.
Liz had bought a third eye blind CD, it was her favourite band, he liked 3rd eye blind too.
He couldn’t wait till class tomorrow, for some reason. He usually hated school why should it be any different right now?.
Maybe it was because he’d get to see Liz and how beautiful she was, or maybe it was because of the new surroundings and he wanted to explore more of his new life.
Either way he couldn’t wait till tomorrow.
Max took a seat in class the next day. Liz was smiling at him from the cack of the room and it caused him to blush. Everyone was talking in amongst their selves and he just waited patiently for the teacher to arrive.
“Max” Liz pushed through a group of people and over to him. Max got butterflies when she said his name. “Hey, did you see it?” she asked.
Max had no idea what she was talking about “Se what?” he asked.
“The snow!” Liz grabbed the seat from the desk next to him “isn’t it beautiful, we hardly ever get snow here, the radio said it would snow for a couple of days, imagine if it covers the whole ground!”.
‘Your more beautiful than any snow’ Max wanted to say. Her hair was up to today, she had it in a big puff at the back and it her hair was covered with butterfly clips. She had stray pieces of hair hanging down the sides of her cheeks and down the back of her neck. He just wanted to grab her and pull her close to him, but he restrained himself.
“cool” he said “But snow is more cold than beautiful”.
“No way, I don’t care” Liz shook her head.
A nun walked into the class room and everyone took their seats. Liz spun around to face the front and straightened her posture. Max did the same.
He was having a hard time listening to the nun at the front having Liz sitting so close to him.
Liz was also having a hard time trying to focus. She closed her eyes and tried to listen to the prier but her beat was beating so fast and she felt like she could feel Max’s breath on her neck.
What was this did she just have a crush on him, she thought it was much more than that.
She had liked a boy before and it had never been like this.
‘You have got it so bad for him!’ her mind told her. Liz swallowed and flashes over came her. Max smiling, Max laughing, Max eating ice cream. Liz clenched her hands into fists to sweat wouldn’t drip from them. She couldn’t hear the teacher any more all she could hear was Max breathing and her heart beat.
‘Just pretend he isn’t there’ her mind told her. How on earth could she ignore that wonderful person beside her?.
She had had him in her dreams again last night. Max was twisting himself around in her mind and invading everything she did. What was that saying from the bible? “Your lives are a letter written and everyone can read it”. Well Max was not only reading her letter he was ripping it up and writing a whole new one, that included him, that made him the centre of her whole universe.
Liz opened her eyes and stared at the teacher.
It was going to be a very long day.
Liz knocked on the door to Max’s room and it opened almost straight away to reveal a half asleep Michael Guerin.
It had been three weeks since she had meet Max and they had became great friends. Sure they had the occasional un-friend-like staring competition and it looked like they were about to jump on top of each other but they tried hard not to let each other know just how much they really liked each other.
Michael had been at this school as long as Liz. They had gone up each grade together but never really got to know each other or talked at all. A year after Michael came to this school, Alex Whitman had come and him and Michael had been friends since they had been assigned to a room together.
“Um is Max in there?” She asked.
Michael held the door open for her to enter and she had to duck under his arm to get inside.
Max had been reading book on his bed, when he had heard Liz’s voice he had put it down. “Liz?” he asked.
“Yeah...um hi” She felt awkward standing in a guys room but she needed Max’s help.
“Come over here” Max instructed. Liz walked over and sat down on the end of his bed.
“I was just wondering if you could come help me with a bit of work I’m having trouble with?” she asked.
Alex and Michael stood watching this whole exchange with grins on their faces, it was quiet entertaining watching them be awkward around each other.
They took this opportunity to leave “No don’t worry about leaving just stay in here, we’ll leave. Anyway you’ll get more work done in here, it’s more private” Alex suggested.
Liz turned around to face them “No you really don’t have to, you shouldn’t have to leave your own room, I was just gonna go to the library”.
“No we insist” Michael shoved Alex out the door and followed straight behind him.
Michael closed the door and followed Alex down the hall.
Maria came bouncing down the walkway and stopped when she came to Alex and Michael.
“Oh my goodness you’ve emerged from your room!” She chuckled.
“Did you stop walking just to insult us Deluca?” Michael asked.
“NO” Maria frowned “Actually I was wondering if you knew where Liz was?”.
“She wants to be alone” Alex told her.
“Alone? she can be alone in our room and anyway why on earth would she tell you if she wanted to be alone?” Maria demanded.
“Look she and Max are in our room studying and we left the room so they can have some privacy. It is very obvious how much they like each other and we thought they might appreciate some time without you or Isabel trailing behind them. Have you noticed they like each other Maria or have you been to caught up in your self yo notice?” Michael asked.
Tears stung Maria’s eyes from Michael’s hurtful comment “I did notice!” she spat out before turning around and running back to her room.
“That was mean” Alex said.
“She had it coming” Michael said as they walked down stairs to the games room.
After a few minutes of silence Max spoke , “So what work was it?” he asked standing up.
“Oh just a maths work sheet, I suck at Maths” She screwed up her nose. Max thought she looked adorable when she did that. He chuckled “Ok... um is it alright if we study with music? I can always concentrate better when there’s back ground noise”.
“Yeah of corse I’m like that too” Liz slipped her shoes off her feet and lifted them up onto the bed.
“I’ll just go toilet” He said as he walked into the bathroom and closed the door.
Liz got comfortable on his bed by lying down on her belly and putting the books down in front of her.
In the still of my heart
There's a fire that burns my soul's desire
Touching me like the sun
Here and now I give my love so faithfully
I will always be the one
A lump formed in Liz’s throat when the slow song came on. Max walked out of the bathroom and stopped dead in his tracks when he saw Liz lying down on his bed.
He took a sharp breath then walked over to her.
I wanna stay with you tonight
I don't wanna leave, 'cause I feel the time is right
Don't wanna go before I say what I have to say
Don't ask me to walk away
I wanna stay the night
Wanna stay the night
“Had any luck figuring out any answers?” he asked.
“Nope” Liz smiled handing him the sheet, “how about I give you the sheet and the pencil and you do it for me?!” She chuckled.
“No way” Max said “I’m only here to help”.
Holding you close to me
The first time that your body moved with mine
Let the mood ease your fear
Caressing as I whisper in your ear
I will always be the one
Max lied down next to her and read the sheet “this isn’t that hard” he said.
‘Sure’ Liz’s mind said ‘it isn’t that hard trying not kiss you while you lie next to me on your bed when no one is around!’.
She couldn’t concentrate on what he said, all she could focus on was his lips.
Now is the time
I've been waiting for so long
Just give me a sign
'Cause it's here where I belong
After they got the work sheet done Liz put her pencil in her folder with the sheet “Thankyou so much” she said, “I probably would have got them all wrong with out your help”.
“It was my pleasure” He said.
Liz rolled onto her back and put her head on his pillow “What are your parent’s like?” she asked.
Don't wanna go now
I wanna stay the night
Don't wanna go now
Don't ask me to walk away...
They had talked briefly about their families but not very much.
Max swallowed and sat up, “We don’t have to talk about that if you don’t want” Liz said looking up at him.
“No it’s ok” Max said folding his legs, “It’s just they really aren’t my favourite people in the world”.
Liz bit her lip “In other words you hate their guts?”.
Max laughed “Yeah you could say that”.
Liz leaned up on her elbows “My family isn’t that great they never want to see me, that’s why they dropped me off here, so they could run off and be young” sadness filled her eyes.
Max didn’t know what to say, he hated seeing Liz upset it made his heart ache. Liz sat up fully and Max knew what he could do. He pulled her into a hug to both of their shock.
Liz rested her head on Max’s shoulder and breathed in his scent, oh god, this felt so right.
Max rapped his arms around her back “You don’t need them Liz, they don’t deserve you”.
‘What were you upset about anyway?’ Liz’s mind asked. Being in Max’s arms was all she could think about. “Thankyou” She whispered.
Neither of them wanted to pull away so they just sat there for a little longer. Liz was the first to pull back and she ran her index finger under her eye to wipe away her single tear.
Max brushed a piece of hair behind her ear and she smiled briefly. His hand lingered on her face a little longer caressing her cheek bone then he pulled it away. Liz frowned and grabbed his hand, she pulled it back to her cheek keeping it in her own.
Liz’s head was spinning as Max moved his face closer to hers. Their eyes locked on each other and their noses touched briefly as Liz turned her head slightly to the right.
“Hey guys...” the door flung open and Liz jerked back bitting her lip. “Oh sorry, I was looking for Michael and Alex, carry on” the door closed and Liz breathed in “I have to go..” She picked up her folder and slipped off the bed, “I’ll see you later Max” She grabbed her shoes and practically ran to the door.
She opened it and turned to look back at Max “Thanks for the help” she walked out then closed the door behind her.
“Maria he didn’t mean it” Liz hugged her friend “You are not up yourself”.
Maria smiled “Thankyou”.
“Max and I nearly kissed” Lis spat up.
Maria’s mouth dropped and she started jumping up and down and pointing at Liz.
“Maria, I don’t know how it happened I mean one minute we’re studying on his bed the next he’s hugging me and telling me my parent’s don’t deserve me then were leaning in to kiss each other and the door flings open and one of Alex and Michael’s mates stand in the doorway!” Liz paced back and forth.
“Jeez Michael and Alex just suck today!” Maria stamped her foot “We should go teach them a lesson”.
A tear dripped down Liz’s cheek and Maria ran over to her “Oh chinca!” She rapped her arms around her and they sat down at the end of her bed.
“Maria I’m so scared, I like him so much, I don’t want to ruin our friendship by us getting together, he’s on my mind 24/7, he’s in my dreams, he’s in our class, he is always there!” Liz wept on Maria’s shoulder.
“Liz, Max likes you just as much back and you guys and me are going to die in frustration if you don’t let each other know it! ever since that night you meet you have been obsessed with each other, this isn’t just a crush Liz, this is more, you are in love”.
‘In love?’ Liz’s mind questioned, “I...I...I...” Liz mumbled “Oh my gosh”.
“You mean to tell me you haven’t figured it out by now? Liz me and Isabel knew on the second week!” Maria stood up, “Why don’t you go talk to him?”.
“Maria I can’t I’m to embarrassed I’ll just stay in here all day” Liz fell back onto her bed, “Go have fun don’t waist your Saturday”.
“Liz I’m not gonna leave you here by yourself” Maria lied down next to Liz and she snuggled into her.
“I’m fine, I just need to be alone”.
“Hey Michael, I’ve been looking for you” Nathan walked up to him in the game room.
“You have?” Michael asked.
“Yeah well I was kind of shocked when I walked into your room to see Liz Parker and that Max guy about to kiss” Nathan plonked down on the sofa chair in the games room.
“You didn’t?” Alex asked “Oh Christ if only you knew how long we have been waiting for that to happen! you probably scared her off”.
“Why is it any of your business?” Isabel walked over after hearing their conversation.
Alex blushed and Michael grinned “Max is our buddy it is our business” he said.
“No it’s not stop talking about Liz like that” Isabel walked away just in time to see Liz walk into the church.
“Liz?” She asked walking after her.
Liz turned around “Isabel?” She asked.
“Are you alright?” She asked.
“Yeah I was just going to go talk to the confession booth” Liz folded her arms.
“Liz I don’t think you need to go in there, come on let’s walk” She grabbed Liz’s arm and lead her outside into the snow. Liz rapped her arms around herself to get warm and walked down the concrete steps.
“Liz we’ve been friends since you came here and I think I know you pretty well, you haven’t been as happy as you have been since Max came here” Isabel rapped her arm around Liz’s shoulder.
“What do you want Liz?” She asked.
“I don’t..” Isabel cut her off “No what do YOU really want?”.
Liz looked up at her friend “I want him to love me as much as I love him” tears streamed down her cheeks “And I’m afraid” She whispered “He doesn’t want me” she wiped her eyes with the sleeves of her top.
Isabel sat down on the brick fence and glanced Liz “This has been boodled up inside of you since you meet him hasn’t it?”.
Liz bit her lip “No” she shook her head yes and Isabel laughed “It had hasn’t it?”.
Liz nodded her head ‘yes’ again and sat down next to her.
“Liz he want’s you” Isabel smiled “He loves you just as much as you love him”.
Liz smiled and ran her hand through her hair “Are you sure”.
“Yes” Isabel hugged her “Come on let’s go back inside it’s freezing out here!”.
Liz laughed “Ok”.
“So are you gonna kiss him now?” she asked.
Liz laughed “I don’t know!”.
“Well you better hurry up or Michael and Alex are going to burst!” Isabel said.
“What?” Liz turned around to face her.
“Alex’s words exactly ‘you don’t know long we have been waiting for that!’” Isabel chuckled “You have captivated audiences!”.
“3 weeks Isabel I have known him 3 weeks. Love doesn’t happen in 3 weeks” Liz said.
“It was love at first sight!” Isabel said running up the stairs.
“But Isabel the boarding home rules specifically state ‘thou shalt not have improper relations’ so what do I do about that?!” Liz ran up the steps.
“Don’t let the nuns know!” Isabel laughed then pulled her inside.
“Max?” Liz asked as she opened the door to his room. She hadn’t seen him since she left his room 2 hours ago and he hadn’t been down to the games room, so she figured he’d still be in his room.
His head shot out from the bathroom. He was holding a towel to his head as he dried his wet hair, “Liz?”.
She blushed “Yeah” She walked into the room properly and closed the door behind her.
Max put hanged the towel over the bath’s side and walked into the room.
“I was wondering if you wanted to come outside and help me build a snow man” She smiled brightly “A few people are out there and they were making me jealous”.
Max smiled “Yeah just let me get warmer clothes on” he walked over to his trunk of belongings and pulled out an extra top and a jersey.
He pulled them on as Liz looked around the room, “you know today was the first time I’ve been in a guys room” She smiled “I think I’m getting obsessed to them now”.
Max laughed “You’ll have to show me your palace some time”.
“I wouldn’t call it a palace” She pointed to a razor sitting on the basin in the bathroom “Hey we have them in our room too!” she exclaimed.
Max laughed and pulled his shoes on.
She walked over to where the coats were hanging “Which ones yours?” she asked.
Max walked over “This one” He pulled a black one of the hook and pulled it on.
Liz was wearing a grey woollen hat that had little ear pieces on it. Little blue bunnies were sewed around it.
“I like your hat” Max said as they walked out of his room.
“You do? my grandma knitted it, I go stay with her at Christmas usually” She pulled on the ear pieces.
“It’s cute” Max said pulling on the Pom pom that was sitting on the tip of the hat.
Liz laughed. She had a grey jacket on, that went down to her knees, it had big blue buttons and resembled her school dress. She also had black boot’s on that went up to just below her knees.
They walked outside and Max pulled the door closed behind them. “Liz, Liz!” Maria ran up to her “Guess what we are going to the dancing hall in town tonight, Lillian set it up!”.
“Really?!” Liz asked excited.
“Yes! oh my gosh Liz I can’t wait!” She jumped up and down with Liz. “I’ll see ya later Liz!” Maria ran off and Liz laughed.
Max looked at her questioningly, “It is a dance hall and we get to stay out to 11:00pm dancing you have the best town, lot’s of the town people are there, you’ll love it!” She explained.
“I shouldn’t tell you this but... I can’t dance” He said as they walked.
“I’ll teach you” Liz smiled “I am a pretty good dancer” she bent down and grabbed a hunk of snow and rolled it into a ball.
When Max turned away she sloshed it onto the top of his head as she cracked up laughing.
Max looked at her shocked and bent down to get some snow. “Nooooo!” Liz ran off and he chased after her leaving little footprints in the snow.
He threw it and it hit her directly in the back. She screeched and threw one back at him.
In a matter of seconds they were in an intense snow ball fight. Max chased Liz around the yard and she jumped out from behind the building “Boo!’ she threw several snow balls at him and he lost his balance and fell forwards pulling a screeching Liz under him.
Liz struggled under him and he lifted his head “Are you hurt?” He asked his eyes locking on hers; “No” She smiled “I think I won the snow ball war you suck” She chuckled.
“Yeah” Max smiled.
Liz pressed her forehead against his and he brought his lips down on hers.
Their cold blue lips brushed and Max lifted his head slightly to look into her eyes, “Max I’m falling..” She rapped her arms around his neck and pulled his mouth down on hers.
Her lips glided over his and he nibbled on her bottom lip. As they got used to the sensations over coming them Liz pushed her tongue into his mouth. She groaned at the contact and started searching every corner of his mouth.
Max was in heaven he had not expected their first kiss to be this wonderful, he couldn’t have asked for more. Liz pulled back for air not lifting her forehead away from him “I’m in love with you” She whispered.
“Come, I’ll teach you to dance” Liz smiled at Max as he sat in the corner of the dancing hall with Michael and Alex.
“Go ask Isabel and Maria to dance” He told them.
They grimaced and Liz grabbed Max’s hands pulling out to the dance floor.
“Hey Lillian thanks for setting this up” Maria smiled walking up to her.
“My pleasure dear” Lillian said eyeing Max and Liz “Maria” She said.
“Yeah Lillian?” Maria asked.
“Is something going on between Maxwell Evans and Elizabeth Parker?” She asked.
Maria turned to where she was looking to see Liz and Max holding each other close as they danced to a song. Max said something and Liz cracked up laughing, “They are just good friends” Maria lied.
They weren’t allowed to have boy-girl interaction at the house and their relationship would have to be a secret. The nuns were very strict and they said “There is plenty of time for that when you leave us”.
Lillian knew Maria wasn’t telling the whole truth, she’d have to keep an eye on them she though.
Maria watched the expression on her face and knew she was up to something, she decided she better warn Max and Liz later.
“Maria?” She felt a tap on her shoulder and she turned around to face Michael hwo had a embarrassed smile on his face.
“If your here to insult me keep walking spiky” She said turning back around.
“No Maria..” He grabbed her shoulder and she turned back to look at him “I came to apologise for what I said”.
Maria smiled widely “I accept your apology Michael”.
“Do you um wanna dance?” he asked.
“I would love to” She followed him out to the dance floor.
“Isabel do you want to dance?” Alex asked, “Max made me ask”.
“If your only doing this because Max asked you to, then no” Isabel said.
“No, I mean I was going to ask anyway” He blushed.
Isabel bit her lip as she smiled “Then she I will dance with you”.
“Your a liar Max” Liz whispered in his ear.
Max looked at her “I am?” he asked. “Yes” Liz smiled “Your a great dancer”.
Max grinned “Thankyou” he spun her around in a circle and flung her back into his arms.
She laughed and rested her head on his shoulder.
“You guys just have to be careful ok?” Maria told Max and Liz as they walked back to the house.
Liz nodded “We will” she said.
“Yeah don’t worry” Max told her.
“Ok good, I don’t want to see them split you up” She folded her arms.
“SO Michael apologised?” Max asked grinning.
Maria laughed and blushed “Yeah”.
They walked in the front doors of the school and upstairs. Liz pulled Max into her room quickly “Goodnight Max” She placed a gentle kiss on his lips and he hugged her to him “Goodnight Liz” He placed another kiss on her lips and left the room.
Isabel walked in smiling “Oh Liz I’m so happy for you two!” she squealed.
Liz laughed and fell back onto her bed “I am so happy!” she felt like she was floating on a cloud.
“You look it too” Maria pulled her dress off her and hopped into her night gown.
Liz rolled onto her side and buried her head in her pillow “Hmm” she mumbled.
“Happy Birthday to you, happy birthday to you, happy birthday to you Max! Happy birthday to you” Liz sang as she entered his bedroom. Alex and Michael laughed and Max blushed.
Liz fell back onto his bed and smiled up at him as he folded clothes and put the in his trunk “Feel any different?” she asked.
Max looked at her questioningly and she rolled onto her side “You know being 16 and all feel any different?”.
Max laughed “Not really” He sat down on the side of the bed and leaned down to kiss her lips.
Groans came from Michael and Alex as they leapt for the door. Liz turned her head laughing at them and Max placed a gentle kiss on her neck.
“You know I have something planned for you down stairs if you want we can go see it?” Liz asked as Max lied down beside her.
“I just want to stay here with you” He whispered. Liz kissed his lips and ran her hand through his hair “Everyone is waiting” she said.
“Let them wait!” He kissed down her neck and she rolled on top of him, “Well we could stay here if you really want I mean it’s your birthday...”.
Max chuckled “You know I won’t say no to that” he rapped his arms around her waist pulling her in between his legs.
Liz moaned as he devoured her mouth, “Liz” He whispered “You know that night we meet....?” he asked.
“Yes” She kissed his lips warmly and ran her fingers under the edges of his top,
“What did you think when you saw me?” he asked, “I thought you had a body like a Greek god” she smiled.
Max laughed “Really?” He asked.
“Ya ha” She said cheerfully “Why?” she asked,
“I just I thought you were the most beautiful person I have seen” He said cupping her cheeks and looking longingly into her eyes.
Liz blushed “Really?”.
“Ya ha” he said cheerfully mimicking her. She whacked him arm playfully then sat up so she was straddling him “Max we have to go down stairs now” She said pulling him up into a sitting position.
“Ok” He kissed her lips passionately. Liz didn’t deepen the kiss because she knew they would never get out of his room.
She slowly eased off him and brushed her clothes. Max got up a few seconds after her and they hurriedly left the room.
They walked down the stairs and into the games room where there were presents and a big birthday cake there for him. It took all Max’s strength not to grab Liz and kiss her passionately, “Thankyou” he whispered. Liz looked up at him and smiled “Every one deserves a good birthday”.
Joan ( a nun ) walked up to Max and smiled “Happy Birthday Maxwell”. Max’s face turned bright read “This is all for me?” he asked.
“Yes of corse it is” Joan said taking his hands and leading him over to the cake, “Make a wish and blow out the candles so we can have some cake” Alex said from the couch sitting in front of the widow. Liz laughed and sat down beside him. Max thought really hard about what he could wish for that would make his the happiest person in the world and one world sat in his mind blocking all other.
He glanced at her and she smiled brightly, that smile sent warmth flooding through him. He had only meet this girl a month ago and he loved her more than life itself.
‘I wish that me and Liz will be happy and together for all eternity’ he thought as he blew out the candles. “Cake!” Ronan said as Max finished blowing out the candles.
Liz sat there smiling and she felt Maria’s arm come around her shoulders “If he didn’t love you before today he does now” She whispered in her ear, Liz blushed “Why do you say that?” she asked.
“Because of the way he looked at you a second a go, I bet the wish he made before he blew out the candles had something to do with you” She smiled brightly.
“I bet it didn’t” Liz said watching people line up for cake, that Max was cutting.
“We’ll see” Maria smirked. Liz hit her on the arm and stood up “Want some cake?” she asked.
“I’ll come get some” Maria stood up and got into line with her.
“Big or small piece?” Max asked not looking up.
“um hmm lets see...” Liz put her finger up to her lip “Big piece”. Max looked up at her and smiled “any thing for you beautiful”.
Liz blushed and Maria made chocking noise, “hurry up some people want’s some cake!” she said.
Max handed Liz some cake and smiled then walked back over to the couch.
After a little while Max came and sat down on the floor in front of them. “Happy Birthday Max” a girl walked up to Max and sat down in front of him blocking his view of Liz.
Liz stopped eating cake and stared at the girl, who did she think she was?!. ‘Calm down Max want’s you , for some un know reason, even though she is skinner, got bigger boobs and is more beautiful’ her mind said. Liz groaned and buried her face in her hands.
“Hey back of Barbie, quit moving in on Liz’s man” Maria exclaimed.
The girl looked away from Max and gave Maria the evil eyes “excuse me?” she asked.
“You heard me, or do you want me to repeat myself since your obviously a dum ass for sitting down there in the first place. GO-AWAY-WE-DON’T-WANT-YOU-NEAR-US-YOU-STUPID-SKANKY-HOE”. Liz snorted from laughter and buried her face into her hands more. Max was biting his lip to keep from laughing, he wanted the girl to go away, she was blocking his view of Liz. The girl gasped and bit her lip “I’ll leave if Max want’s me too not if you do” she said.
“Oh yeah he want’s you sitting in front of him that’s why he keeps trying to look past your BIG head at Liz” Maria said.
The girl groaned and leapt at Maria slapping her in the face. Maria slapped her back and a huge cat fight started.
Liz gasped and stood up. Once Maria punched the girl, the girl leapt up and turned to Liz “This is your fault!” she said raising her hand to hit Liz. “DON’T even think about it!” Max said grabbing her arm, “If you touch her I’ll make sure that you will be very sorry for even come near her” he exclaimed.
By now the nuns were over and trying to stop the commotion.
The girl let a groan-scream thing and turned around coming face to face with Maria “Go to hell!” She yelled at Maria. Gasps were heard from everyone in the room and Maria turned fuming red, “Oh you just don’t know when to stop do you?!” she leapt at her making them both fall back onto the ground as they hit each other.
“STOP!” a nun said pulling them off each other “Stop this pathetic ness RIGHT NOW!”.
Maria groaned and Liz pulled her back “Maria” she said.
The nun that had pulled them apart lead the girl out of the room and Joan grabbed Maria “Come with me!” she instructed.
Maria followed her out of the room and Liz frowned ‘that was all your fault’ her mind insisted, “I know!” she said out loud exasperatedly.
She gasped and put her hand up to her mouth, ’did you just say that out loud?’ her mind started laughing and she fell back onto the couch.
Max stood in front of her. She couldn’t believe what he had done for her.
Liz paced back and forth outside the office that Maria was currently getting told off in. Max was leaning against the wall watching her.
“Why did you do that?” she asked turning to face him.
“Do what?” he asked.
“You stopped that girl from hitting me even though it was basically all my fault the fight started” she folded her arms and looked down at the ground.
Max walked over to her and lifted her face to look at him “Liz that fight was not your fault, it was that girls” he tucked her hair behind her ears and she looked up at his eyes.
“Thankyou” she whispered looking away.
Max smiled “No one is allowed to touch you like that Liz, or I’ll kill them” he whispered.
Liz’s head shot back to look at him and she looked up at him in shock. He was looking at her pure love and warmth and he cupped his face.
“I love you Liz” he whispered. Liz’s eyes started to water, that was the first time he had ever said that to her. “I love you too Max” she stood up on her tippee toes as she pushed her mouth to his.
Max closed his eyes and rapped his arms around her, Liz rapped her arms around his neck and he moaned quietly as he tongue eased into his mouth.
“Elizabeth, Maxwell!” a voice came from a few feet away and they both broke apart and turned to see Lillian standing in the hall looking at them with very cross eyes.
Liz’s heart was beating very fast and she swallowed waiting for Lillian to start screaming at them.
“Your lucky I’m busy right now I’ll tend to you two later!” she exclaimed “You are in BIG trouble” she said looking at them as she stormed past.
“Shit, shit, shit” Liz repeated as she started pacing again “I’m sorry about ruining your birthday, I wanted to make it great but I guess I failed on that one” she grumbled.
Max grabbed her arm “Stop pacing!” he said “Liz my birthday is not over and so far it has been great” he placed a quick peck on her lips “As soon as Maria has told us the situation we can make the rest of the day ever better”.
“How do you do that?” She asked “How do you always make the situation go from worse to better with a few words, you can change me from being grumpy and pissed off and worried or any emotion to the complete opposite, sad to happy and sometimes you don’t even have to say anything!”.
Max smiled “I don’t know” he chuckled.
Liz frowned “Well...” she got cut of because the office door opened.
Maria walked out and the door closed behind her. “Maria! oh my gosh what happened?” Liz ran up to her.
“Let’s just go to our room, I’ll tell you there” Maria smiled,
“Ok” Liz said.
Max walked with them, Liz’s hand was rubbing his back comfortingly. “Max can you come back in about 5 minutes?” Liz said.
“Ok” Max said as he headed down to his room.
Liz and Maria walked into their room and both sat down on a bed.
“Max said he loved me” Liz spat out. Maria squealed “that is so great Liz I’m so happy for you!”.
“Wait, enough about me, what happened, how much trouble are you in?” she asked.
“Well I can’t go into town for the next two weeks and I have to help with all the duties” Maria sighed “But it’s totally worth it! I kicked that girls ass and it felt good”.
Liz laughed “Thanks for doing that Maria it meant a lot to me” she hugged her.
“I know you never would have” Maria chuckled.
After 10 minutes Max walked in and Maria was typing on a lap top “She’s just hopped into the shower quickly she want’s to take you somewhere” Maria said not looking up from what she was doing “she said she’d be as quick as possible”.
Max sat down on Liz’s bed “Ok” he smiled.
“Max?” Maria asked as Max lied back onto Liz’s pillow and breathed in her wonderful scent. “Yeah?” he asked.
“You won’t hurt her will you?” she asked closing the lap top and turning all her attention to him.
“Hurt her? I would never hurt Liz” He said instantly.
“I mean emotionally?” she asked.
Max frowned and propped himself up on his elbows “I would never hurt Liz intentionally”.
Liz was stepping out of the shower when she heard the conversation in the other room “..never hurt Liz intentionally..”.
She pulled a towel around her and walked over to the door. She placed her against the cool wood and listened.
“Liz means so much to me and I will never hurt her Maria, you don’t have to worry” Max’s voice sounded firm and serious and it made Liz smile.
She slid down the door so she was sitting with her back leaning against it. SHe rested her head against the door and closed her eyes. Why was she blessed so greatly by having these two wonderful people love her so much? She didn’t deserve the love they gave her.
“I just can’t stand to see her get hurt again” Maria said causing Liz’s eyes to open wide, no Maria please don’t tell him, she silently prayed.
“Again?” Came Max’s voice like she’d expected. Liz closed her eyes to stop her tears from falling.
Maria swallowed “Liz had had the perfect life then all of a sudden it all crashed around her” Maria paused then swallowed again. “Look Max if you want to know about this I think it’s Liz who should tell you not me, ask her I shouldn’t have said anything”.
Max frowned again “Maria what..” he trailed off, letting worry flood through him. He would have to wait to ask Liz.
Liz swallowed back a sob as she wiped her tears away “dam you Maria” she thought.
A few minutes after she had controlled herself from nearly breaking down, she got up and got dressed into the clothes she had picked out quickly. She pulled her hair up into a hair tie then shoved her dirty clothes into the hamper.
Max sat up as the bath room door opened, Liz walked out and smiled at him, what had happened to Liz to hurt her? he wondered. She looked so strong and vibrant, not one bit of sadness or hurt was shown in her eyes. Did she hide it well or was it that the problem that had caused her to be hurt was something that she had gotten over?. Did she not want it brought up again? would she be mad or sad when he asked?. Questions flooded through him. Uneasy emotions such as worry, caution ness and curiosity plagued him and he fought hard to not show them.
Liz pulled on her grey jacket “Come” she smiled waving him over to her. He got up off the bed and walked over to her swiftly. He took her in his arms a pulled her mouth to his. Liz gasped at the sudden strength of his kiss but welcomed his tongue forcefully.
Max broke away heaving for breath “I just wanted to feel your lips again” he grinned. Liz chuckled “Any time Max, any time you wanna feel my lips feel free” she said.
Max followed Liz out of the building “Where are we going?” he asked. She nodded “You’ll see”.
His curiosity could only take so much for one day and soon he was going to burst.
Once they were a tiny bit further away from the house she grabbed his hand. She pulled him around the side of the building and to the back of it. “Is where we are going even allowed?” Max asked.
Liz bit her lip and shook her head ‘no’. He frowned and she lead him up to the bushy area at the end of the yard. “Max you don’t have to come” she turned around “and faced him I just wanted to show you something, but it will risk us getting in trouble”.
Max smiled and took her other hand in his “We are in trouble for something all ready so we may as well go make the punishment that we already have be for something other than kissing”.
Liz chuckled “Yeah” she turned around not pulling her hands away from his “Let’s go” she lead him up a path that went through the bushes and they ended up on top of a hill. The view was awesome, you could see all over town. “Wow” Max said.
“See over there?” Liz pointed to their left and Max turned around, “Those horses belong to the house and we ride them in summer” she explained.
Max’s eyes widened, their were some stables that held about 5 horses then their was a hay shack. “Do you want to go down there?” she asked resting her chin on his shoulder.
“Yeah” he said turning his head to look down at her. Liz smiled and placed a gentle kiss on his lips.
Max smiled and lead her down the hill towards the horses. As they reached the stables some of the horses started to nae and move around. Liz let go of Max’s hand and walked up to one of the horses “This is my favourite her name is Celina” Liz ran her hand up and down the horses mane and Max walked over. Celina was white, with two brown feet, he ran his hand up and down her neck and smiled. “Wait here” Liz said as she ran towards the hay shack. Max stepped under the wood railing so he stood in the small stable stand that held Celina.
Liz walked over carrying some hay, she handed some to Max and he feed it to Celina. After Liz had feed some hay to all the horses she followed Max back over to the hay shack, “You know living here at the boarding school is like being on a permanent school camp” Max explained sitting back on a square piece of hay. Liz lied down next to him, so her legs were hanging over the edge of the hay. “I’ve only been on one school camp, it was when I was 9. It was nothing like our home” she said.
“Liz Maria said..” Liz cut him off “I heard your conversation” she said. “Oh” Max lied down properly beside her and she rolled onto her side “Do you really want to know?” she asked her eyes filling with sadness. “Only if you want to tell me” he said turning his head to face hers.
Liz closed her eyes and swallowed “When I was 10 I walked into my moms room, she was having sex with some guy who wasn’t my father” Liz opened her eyes that shone with tears. I was 10 I didn’t even know what they were doing! I thought he was hurting her so I started to cry. My mom noticed I was there and demanded me to leave, I ran outside and to my childhood tree house. I sat there crying for hours. That night my mom came to me and told me that things happen that we don’t always like but we have to deal with it. She told me to not tell my dad about what I saw or she would leave and I’d never see her again” By now Liz was crying, she sat up and Max rapped his arm around her face comfortingly. “I didn’t tell him, but later on he found out anyway and it just broke him. He died inside and I didn’t know what to do to help my family. I cried and cried just praying that everything would go back to normal, but my mom ran away with the man she was having an affair with and my dad sent me to my nana’s. I haven’t seen either one of them since” Liz broke into sobs and Max rapped his arms around her, she clung to him as she wept, “I’m so sorry they did that to you” he whispered.
“I needed him so much after she left, he was my father he was supposed to help me! we were supposed to look after each other” she cried.
Max lied them down and she curled into him so she was as close as she could get. He held her until the tears stopped and she calmed down. She lifted her head from his chest and wiped her eyes “I’m sorry for breaking down on you” she whispered.
Max tucked a few pieces that had fallen out of her pony tail behind her ears, “Liz I’ll always here for you ok? you don’t have to hide all the pain inside of you, I’ll listen when ever you need me too” He placed a gentle kiss on her forehead and she smiled weakly “I don’t deserve you” she said.
“No Liz it’s the other way around” he shifted so he was on his back and Liz was curled up to his side with her head resting in the hollow of his neck. She rapped her arms around him “Thankyou” she whispered.
Max kissed the top of her head and they lay there like that for nearly an hour.
“Everything is quiet, since you’re not around, An I live in the numbness now, in the background,
I do the things we did before, I walk Haight street to the store, And they say where’s that crazy girl,
You don’t get drunk on red wine, And fight no more, Cause I don’t have you anymore, since the hospital,
But the plans I make still have you in them, Then you come swimming into view, and I’m hanging onto your words like I always used to do, the words they use so lightly, I only feel for you, I know this because I am, way back down, in the background,
words they come and memories repeat, I lift your head while, they change the hospital sheets, I would never lie to you, no I would never lie to you, I felt you long after we were through, And the plans I make still have you in them, cause you come swimming into view, and I’m hanging onto your words like I always used to do, the words they use so lightly, I only feel for you, I know this because I am, way back down, in the background”- ‘the background’- 3rd eye blind.
Max began to sit up but Liz grabbed his shirt, “Max” she moaned pulling him down on top of her. She kissed his lips warmly but he pulled back “Liz your upset, I feel like I would be using you” he said.
Liz shook her head “I kissed you, not the other way around” she pulled his mouth back down on hers and he slipped his tongue into her mouth.
Liz groaned and pulled back so she could slide her body back onto the hay properly.
Once her whole body was laying back straight Max slipped back on top of her again and she begin kissing his neck. Max ran his hands under the hem of her shirt and across the warm skin of her back. She leaned up so he could remove her grey jacket. After it was off Liz’s hands ran under his sweater pulling it over his head. Her kisses burned his throat and neck line as he unbuttoned the cardigan she was wearing. He placed gentle kisses over her collar bone and Liz cupped his cheeks pulling his mouth back to hers. She ran her tongue over his bottom lip before dipping it into his mouth. Max moaned and rubbed his arousal over her heat. Liz threw her head back as he made love to her neck with his tongue. He brought his mouth up to her ear and nibbled on the edge of it before placing wet kisses all over it. She grabbed his hands and placed them at the edges of her cardigan. He pulled the piece of clothing away so she was left wearing a long sleeved white top. They were wearing so many clothes because of the cold weather but now they had each others body heat so Max pulled her remaining top over her head so she was only in a bra.
Max looked down at her and she blushed and looked away. “Liz, your beautiful don’t be embarrassed” Max whispered placing a soft kiss on her lips. Liz looked up into his eyes and ran her hand through his hair. He smiled and she kissed his lips.
He ran his hands down her bare sides and started placing kisses down her neck. He flicked his tongue over the between her breasts and Liz arched back into him. He grazed his lips over the material of her black bra. “Hmm” Liz moaned as he flicked his tongue over the material that covered her nipple.
She put her hands under the end of his shirt and pulled it over his head so she could see his bare chest. Max reached behind her back and Liz leaned up into his chest so he could un hook her bra. He pulled it away and placed it beside them.
Their bare skin brushing together felt wonderful they thought. Max kissed each of her breasts before licking the nipple on her left one; Liz groaned and his hands came up to cup her. He brushed his thumbs over her hard nipples and Liz threw her head back again.
They horses naed outside causing Liz to laugh and sit up. “Is someone out there?” she asked rubbing her nose against the skin of his neck. Max chuckled “I don’t know”.
She pushed her chest against his and he rapped his arms around her back.
She lifted her head and placed a kiss in his lips “We hmmm” she moaned as he flicked is tongue over hers “aghh hmm have to hmmm stop Max” she whispered. “I know” he said his lips brushing over the skin of her neck as he talked.
“I don’t want to but we can’t be gone for too long” she said looking up at his eyes again
Max nodded as she rapped his arms around her neck, “Oh I can’t stop” she moaned kissing his bare chest that was very muscular.
“Hmm” Max groaned as she flicked her tongue over his nipple. The sound of a shovel falling over made Liz pull away from Max “crap their must be someone there” she whispered.
Max nodded and reached for her bra. He pulled it over her chest and hooked it up again at her back. He grabbed her top then pulled it over her head while placing kisses on her stomach and chest as he pulled it down. Liz pulled his t-shirt over his head and placed a warm kiss on his nose. He smiled and pulled her cardigan over her shoulders. He slowly did up each button, then as he reached the top of her shirt he pulled the little silver cross over the edge of her shirt so it hung in it’s normal place. “I love you” Max whispered placing kisses on her neck. “I love you too Max” she whispered taking his mouth. They lied down again and they both moaned. Liz chuckled “Pass me your sweater Max” she whispered.
He chuckled and reached for it, She pulled it over his head and kissed hi slips one more time “Let’s get out of here before we get caught again” she grabbed her jacket and pulled it on. Max got up onto his knees and pulled Liz’s hand up to her mouth. He kissed her finger tips then her palm before slipping off the hay. He walked over to the side of the shed and peeked around it. He felt Liz come up behind him and place a hand on his shoulder, “This way” she said grabbing his hand.
They ran up the path they took to get were they had just been and found themself at the back of the building. Liz lead them back around the side of the house and up to the door. They hesitantly let go of each others hands. Liz looked up into Max’s eyes and smiled before pushing open the door to the building.

Liz, Maria and Isabel meet Max at the stairs before heading down for dinner. They lined up in the line to get their food.
When no one was looking Liz leaned forward and placed a kiss on Max’s neck as he stood in front of her waiting.
He turned around shocked and she blushed. Max smiled and turned back to the front.
After eating dinner they went to the games room so Max could open his gifts that he had gotten earlier that day.
He opened them all then after the nightly prier every one headed to bed. “I’ll see you tomorrow” Liz whispered as she kissed Max. They sat on his bed, “Do you know how hard it is being under the same roof as you and not be able to sleep in the in the same bed?” Max asked.
Liz blushed “Trust me I know” she kissed him one more time then walked to the door “See ya Alex, Michael” She said opening the door.
“Bye Liz” they both groaned from their beds.
Max fell back onto his pillow and sighed happily before turning of the light beside his bed.
Liz stood in front of the bath room mirror in her bra smiling at the hickey that was on her chest. There was another one under her bra, as she pulled it off she noticed it for the first time.
She couldn’t help but chuckle, she liked having them there. She pulled on her bed top and slipped into her PJ pants. She brushed her teeth quickly then hurried to her bed.
Maria and Isabel were already asleep.
After 3 hours of trying to sleep Liz gave up, she wanted to see Max. ‘You can’t go see Max, he’s probably sleeping’ her mind said.
Liz groaned ‘I have to’ she slipped her foot over the edge of her bed and quickly went to the door.
As she opened the door she closed it quickly because of Lillian hurrying past the doors laughing with some guy. She frowned ‘who was that?’ she wondered.
‘Go see’ her mind told her. She debated whether or not to go and see but after a few minutes she decided she would go.
She stepped out of her room and walked quickly down the hall, she heard laughing from the kitchen and walked up to the door, she put her hand on the knob and pushed the door open quickly.
A gasp escaped her mouth, with what she saw in front of her. Lillian was sitting on a steal bench her legs rapped around some guys waist as they fought to undo his buckle.
“Lillian?!” she exclaimed.
Lillian gasped and turned to face Liz who stood shocked in the door way.
Lillian jumped off the bench and ran over to her, “Liz honey, you can’t tell any one about this ok? please I’ll loose my place here, I can’t go any where else”.
“Your a nun! your married to god! your not supposed to be having sex with anyone” Liz exclaimed.
“Liz I’m a women” Lillian exclaimed.
“Oh my goodness I can’t believe this” Liz said folding her arms “How can you live with yourself?”.
“Liz I love him” she grabbed the mans hand and he looked at her sincerely “I would never have done this if I didn’t, One day you’ll fall in love and you’ll understand”.
Liz frowned “ I am in love and I would do the same thing for him”.
“Max?” Lillian asked.
“Yes, I love him with all my heart” Liz whispered.
“Well let’s make a deal, you don’t tell no one about me and Jim and I won’t tell no one about you and Max” Lillian said.
“Your black mailing me” Liz stared at her in shock.
“No we have both been caught with the one we love and will both be in hell if the other nuns find out about us, I’m just bettering the situation for us both, I carry on working as a nun here and you carry on being a good student while seeing Max” Lillian placed her hands on Liz’s shoulders “Please Liz, please, I can’t leave here, this place is my life”.
Liz bit her lip, “I need to think about it, Max is going to know about this, you can’t stop me from telling him”.
Lillian nodded “You talk to him about it and get back to me” Lillian said.
Liz glanced at the man before walking back out the door.
She ran up the stairs and straight to Max’s room. She opened the door and ran over to his bed “Max” she whispered placing a soft kiss on his lips. He stirred a bit then opened his eyes, “Liz?” he asked sitting up.
“Yeah, I need to talk to you can we go somewhere quickly? I don’t want to wake up Alex and Michael” she whispered.
Max nodded and slipped out of bed. He grabbed her hands then lead them over to the bathroom, they walked in and Liz turned on the light. Max closed the door “What’s going on Liz?” he asked rubbing his eyes.
“Max” She sat down on the edge of the bath/ shower “I just caught Lillian with a man” she said trying to catch her breath, “What?” Max demanded kneeling down in front of her. “She isn’t a virgin like she’s supposed to be, she said that if I don’t tell anyone about her and that Jim guy she won’t tell anyone about us” she closed her eyes and opened them again.
“Did you just see her know?” he asked.
“I was coming to see you when Lillian walked past my room with that guy, I followed them down stairs and they were about to have sex, but I caught them, she said she loves him and that’s the only reason she was going behind everyone’s backs, she begged me not to tell anyone because she would be kicked out and she had no where else to go, I told her I didn’t know what to do and I’d have to tell you, she said to get back to her with my answer of what I am going to do” Liz rested her head on Max’s shoulder “I don’t know what to do Max, what do you think? I mean if I do that I’ll be going behind everyone’s back as well, if I tell I’ll ruin her life”.
Max tucked her hair behind her ears “Liz I think you should make that decision, you have to follow your heart, what does it tell you to do?” he asked.
“It says I should do what ever I can to be with you” she rested her forehead against his “If I don’t tell we won’t get found out and we can be together if I tell we will be in so much trouble”.
Max looked straight into her eyes, “I, I won’t risk loosing you Max, I can’t tell the nuns” she swallowed.
Max smiled and cupped her cheeks, she gave him a sweet kiss “Thankyou” she said.
“For what?” he asked.
“For making this decision easier for me, seeing your face gave me the answer I needed straight away, I would do anything for you Max”.
Max kneeled in between her legs and pulled her to him “I would do anything for you too Liz” he said planting kisses all over her face.
Max stood up and took her hands. He lead her over to the door and opened it slowly. Liz turned off the light and followed him over to Max’s bed.
“I can’t go back to my room Max” she whispered.
“Shh” Max raised his finger to her lips and she smiled.
He hopped into bed and Liz hopped in after him. Max rapped his arms around her and she curled into his chest, “Goodnight Liz” he whispered kissing her lips gently.
“Goodnight Max” Liz whispered snuggling into him more.
“Oh holly crap!” Alex said as he walked past Max’s bed.
Liz woke up and stared up at him from Max’s chest, “Liz when I said see ya tomorrow, I didn’t..” Liz shushed him “You’ll wake Max” she whispered.
Alex jumped up and down “This is wrong, do you know how much trouble you’ll be in you get caught?”.
She shushed him again and closed her eyes.
Alex just stood there shocked “Fine, you get caught don’t say I didn’t warn you” he walked into the bathroom and slammed the door.
“Alex jeez!” Michael groaned as he woke up from the door slamming.
He glanced over at Max and jumped out of bed when he saw Liz staring back at him, “Morning” she whispered.
Michael stared at them “Oh what ever!” he exclaimed before walking over to the bathroom door “Hurry up I need to piss really bad!” he said.
Liz chuckled, it was the same in here in the morning as in her room. Max stirred beside her and his eyes popped open. A smile spread across his face “Morning” he whispered.
“Morning” she whispered. Max rolled onto his back and Liz rested her head on his chest. Michael glanced a them from the bathroom door “What’s up with that any way?” he asked.
Max stretched “What do you mean?” he asked.
“If it isn’t that blatantly obvious..” Max cut him off “It’s a long story” he said.
Liz laughed “Ok I still better get back to my room” she kissed Max as she sat up “I’ll see you later” she said. Max grabbed her face and kissed her passionately “See you at breakfast”.
Liz smiled and hopped out of the bed. She hurried to the door and blew a kiss to Max before walking out.
Max lied back down properly and the bath room door opened. Alex walked out and looked over at Max confused, “Was I sleep walking a second ago?” he asked.
Max frowned and Michael rubbed him chin “What are you talking about Alex?” he asked.
“Was Liz here in your bed a second ago?” He asked.
“Um yeah right Alex, in my dreams” Max said. Alex rubbed his eyes “Ok um well I obviously didn’t get enough sleep” He said.
Michael laughed “Ah Alex you falling for Liz? having dreams about her and all”
“Yeah Alex don’t think about moving in on my girl” Max said hopping out of bed.
“No, no way Max I would never do that” Alex walked backwards over to his bed.
“I’d keep an eye on him Maxwell” Michael said. “Yeah good idea” Max walked into the bathroom and closed the door.
“Wait! hey get out I need to piss!” he yelled.
“Liz where the hell have you been?” Maria demanded as soon as Liz walked through the door.
“Max’s room” Liz answered walking over to get her things ready for the day.
“What?!” Isabel demanded.
“Yes I slept over there, what’s the big deal” Liz asked grinning.
“The big deal is how much shit you’ll get in” Maria said following her around like a lost puppy.
“I don’t care, I had the best nights sleep I’ve ever had in my whole life” Liz walked into the bathroom and started brushing her hair.
“I nearly had a heart attack when you weren’t here this morning, do you not care?” Maria asked crossing her arms.
“Maria, Is I’m sorry for scaring you, it’s just last night I couldn’t sleep and I went and talked to Max, we just sort of lost track of time and fell asleep” Liz lied partly.
“Ok what ever” Maria said leaving the room.
Liz hated lying to her friends, she had gone to do that, she just happened to walk into Lillian.
Later that day....
Liz walked into Lillian’s office, “Liz take a seat” she said.
Liz nodded and sat down on a chair in front of her desk “I have decided to not tell, but only because of me and Max’s situation”.
Lillian nodded “I understand”.
“DO you know how wrong this is?, are you sure you are fine to go behind everyone’s backs and pull me into your lies, just for this man? Are you sure it’s true love?” Liz demanded answers.
“Liz I wouldn’t be doing this if it wasn’t” Lillian said.
“If he really loves you why is he making you do this?” Liz asked.
“He’s not Making me DO anything” Lillian folded her arms “Liz, I’m sorry I have to do this, I wish there was another way, but I will do anything to stay at this place”.
Liz glared at her “Anything to stay here? then why don’t you leave him, why did you get together with him in the first place if your job is so important!” Liz yelled.
“I LOVE HIM!” Lillian exclaimed “I love him so much Liz, I wish you had never caught us, I don’t expect you to understand what true love is at such a young age but that’s the way it is”.
Liz looked at her with pure hate “I do know what true love is, because I am also experiencing it, I do know why your doing this, I’m just making sure you know your ruining two lives not one! I just want to make sure you can live with yourself”.
“I don’t want to but I have to for him” Lillian walked over to the door “I will get you anything you want to a certain extent, if you keep this a secret, Liz I don’t want you to hate me because I don’t hate you, this is just the only way we can make this work”.
“I understand” Liz walked up to her.
“Come to me for anything and I’ll try my hardest to get it” Lillian opened the door.
“I promise you I will take advantage of that”.
Liz and Max lied on Liz’s bed at 7:00pm. Liz had her head resting under his chin and she was on her side curled up to his side.
They both had their eyes closed and were resting after a tiring day. Max’s hand ran through Liz’s hair lazily and Liz drew patterns on his stomach with her index finger.
It was August now, July had passed slowly, Liz’s birthday had been celebrated the same as Max’s.
Max and Liz’s one night sleeping in the same bed was now a regular occurrence, every other night they would be in the same bed.
Some night’s it was too risky to sneak into each others beds so they would have to sleep in separately, those were the worse night.
Maria and Isabel were used to waking up to have Max asleep in their room. It was the same for Alex and Michael, they just carried on normally. Max and Liz were inseparable when they could be, during the day they couldn’t be together non stop because the nuns would start to notice and they couldn’t and wouldn’t risk it.
Lillian and Liz kept their secret in tact, Liz would ask Lillian for the occasional thing but she never asked for much.
“Liz the showers free now” Maria walked out of the bathroom drying her hair.
Liz snuggled into Max “Thanks” she whispered not opening her eyes.
“I’m going down to do my cleaning duties, I can’t believe today is the last day I’ll have to do this, all I can say is thank you lord oh mighty I owe you my life!”
Max chuckled as Maria walked to the door “I’ll be back when the dragons have done torturing me” she said walking out the door.
“Have fun Maria, tonight we celebrate your freedom!” Liz said opening her eyes.
Liz turned her head and rested her chin on Max’s chest so she was looking up at him “What are you thinking about?” She asked him.
Max opened his eyes and smiled down at her “you” he answered.
Liz blushed “What about me?” She asked.
“How you kiss” He pulled her mouth up onto his “How you flick your tongue over mine” he placed warm kisses on her mouth “And how your lips feel on mine” He ran her fingers through her hair and Liz smiled against his lips “Well your the best kisser ever” she chuckled.
Max frowned “You have never kissed any one else so how do you know?” he asked pulling her body up his more.
“I don’t need to kiss anyone else to know that your kisses are perfect” she said placing a kiss on his neck.
She brought her leg up so it was tucked under his. She slipped on top of him and Max moaned, “Don’t you have to take a shower, anyway I need to get back and take one as well” he said sitting up.
Liz straddled him “No I don’t want you to go” She whispered rapping her arms around his neck Don’t go, don’t go!” she whimpered.
“Liz honey, I have to” He said placing a kiss on her forehead.
“Why don’t you just stay and take a shower with me?” Liz asked. Max’s eyes blazed with passion and Liz blushed. She couldn’t believe she had said that, it had just slipped out! no way did she regret it though.
Max bit his lip and Liz sat up fully “stay” she begged, “I mean I can’t have sex because until I’m married, I signed the...”
Max nodded “I know, I did too”.
“So come on” she whispered kissing his lips
“Liz, I don’t...” Liz cut him off “You’ve seen me half naked before right? it’s not like we are having sex, it’s just saving water” her face was red with shyness.
“Are you sure?” he asked.
Liz nodded and slipped off the bed “It’s only a shower right?” she asked.
“Yeah” Max nodded as she walked backwards into the bathroom.
“Just a shower” She whispered.
“Like with your brother or sister or something” Max frowned.
Liz laughed “Um no, I hope not”.
Max closed the bathroom door “You better lock that, I think, cause you know in case...”
Max nodded “Yeah I know” he locked the door and Liz reached in and turned on the shower.
They stood awkwardly for a moment before Max walked over and tucked a strand of hair behind Liz’s ear. She kissed his lips gently and tugged at the bottom of his shirt. Max helped her lift it over his head and them she placed it down behind her. After pulling Liz’s tops off, Max slid her long skirt down her thighs. She stepped out of it and then undid his jeans. Max breathed in as Liz pulled of her underwear.
Liz blushed and looked down at the floor, what did he think of her body? was it pathetic?.
Max cupped her cheeks as he placed a gentle kiss on her lips “You are beautiful” he whispered. Liz smiled and he pulled down his boxers.
The hopped into the shower and let the water fall over him. Liz got a good look at Max and ‘wow’ was all she could think. God must have been a woman to have come up with a body like that. A man could not establish that kind of perfection.
Max picked up the soap, Liz’s stomach jumped as he ran it along her shoulder. Max left a white foam trail of soup bubbles down Liz’s arm that was washed away quickly by the running water. He then ran the soap across her stomach and around her belly button before running up to her chest.
He washed EVERY part of her body accurately, this included bending down to wash her feet and legs.
Then Liz took the soap from him and began washing his body back.
No words were spoken as she ran her hand over his rippled stomach. Her eyes were locked on his and small smile rested on his face. Liz stepped closed to Max as she ran her hand over Max’s shoulder. Her breasts brushed his bare chest and she placed a gentle kiss on his lips. Max ran his fingers through her hair and she rested her forehead on his, “What if I said I don’t want to wait till marriage?” she whispered in his ear.
“I’d say, it’s up to you” Max smiled brushing his cheek against hers.
Liz chuckled “How’d I know that would be your reply?”. Max smiled, “I could never so no to you Liz, I kick my own ass later”.
Liz laughed “yeah”.
“But” Max said, Liz waited to hear what he had to say, “Not here, not like this Liz”.
She smiled “Could you be more wonderful?” she asked rapping her arms around his neck. Max held up his two hands “no! not to much contact” he said “I might lose control” he whispered in her ear. Liz looked down at his arousal “Yeah” she smiled.
Liz finished washing Max, then they washed each others hair.
Neither one wanted to turn off the shower, because they didn’t want this moment to end.
After a little while they both turned off the water and Max reached into the little cupboard. He pulled out two towels and dried himself. He rapped the towel around his waist and then rapped the other towel around Liz’s shoulders. He dried her while she smiled and chuckled. Liz went out into the bedroom with a towel rapped around her and Isabel sat on her bed with her music playing.
“Hey Liz” she said.
Liz smiled “Um hey Is” she walked over and grabbed some clothes for herself then walked back into the bathroom.
Max stood wearing only jeans as Liz walked in a quickly closed the bathroom door behind her, “Isabel is out there” she stated.
Max frowned “Oh well” he said. Liz bit her lip then smiled. She dropped her towel and Max’s eyes widened.
She laughed and then pulled her underwear on. Max helped her get dressed then Liz stuck her head out the bathroom door. Isabel was working on something so they noth walked out quickly and closed the door behind them.
Max kissed Liz “I’m going to get some clean clothes on ok?”.
Liz nodded and smiled.
Isabel looked up and Max and Liz blushed.
“Max?” Isabel’s eyes widened as she realised they had both just walked out of the bathroom.
Max walked over to the door “bye” he said quickly before hurrying out.
Liz turned back to look at Isabel and waited for her to scream at her with questions.
Liz yawned as she sat in class, ‘boring, boring and boring’ her mind said.
Today’s class just wouldn’t end.
After class had finished, Maria, Isabel and her were going to the next town over with Lillian to get some kind of supplies.
They would be gone for the whole weekend and that meant no Max for two whole nights and 3 days. They were leaving at 4:30pm and coming back on Monday around lunch time.
She sighed and glanced across the room at Max. He was focusing on writing his report, but he looked up and turned his head to face her.
When he glanced at her, she grinned “love you” she mouthed.
“Love you more” Max mouthed back.
Liz blew him a kiss and turned back to her work.
The class finished and Max picked up his stuff quickly and followed everyone out the door.
He had 1 hour to spend with Liz before she left and he tended to make the most of it.
Liz’s hand grabbed his shoulder and he turned around to face her, she had a grim look on her face.
He grabbed her hand and pulled her up stairs to her room. They hurried inside and Liz jumped into his arms. Max moaned and pulled Liz up his body. She rapped her legs around his waist and he rapped his arms around her back.
They broke the kiss for air and Liz kissed down his neck “I’m going to miss you so..” she placed a kiss on his inviting lips “So much”.
Max nodded and kissed her passionately “me too” he whispered.
Liz groaned and pressed her tongue against his. Max turned around and walked backwards to her bed. His feet hit the side of it and he fell forward pinning Liz under him. She continued kissing him senseless.
“Knock, knock!” Isabel said. “Max and Liz we saw you sprint in here and we don’t wanna walk in on anything so tell us when your decent” Maria’s voice came from behind the door.
Liz groaned and Max stared down at her, “Go away” she called out.
“Liz not gonna work we have to get ready for the trip” Isabel said.
Max and Liz sat up and placed another gentle kiss on each others lips “Come in!” Max called.
The door opened and Liz got up off her bed and ran her fingers through her hair.
“Nice” Maria grinned at her as she walked over to her bed.
Liz frowned and Max rapped his arms around her waist, pulling her onto his lap.
She sighed and rested the back of her head on his chest. Max kissed the top of her head and she closed her eyes.
“Liz have you already packed?” Isabel asked walking past holding a sweater.
“Yeah I packed this morning” Liz answered, “Max can we go to your room?”.
Max nodded and Liz hopped up. “I’ll back soon you guys ok?” she smiled at Maria.
Maria glanced at her with a grin on her face “Yeah chinca, just be back no later than ten past four”.
“I won’t” Liz called as her and Max walked out the door.
“Liz” Liz spun around to face Lillian who had a content look on her face, “Ready to go?”.
“Yeah I am all packed” she answered.
“Ok well I’ll see you in about 20 minutes” Lillian turned and walked into the girls room.
There was this awkwardness between her and Liz. Liz thought that it would always be like that and there was nothing either one of them could do about it.
Max and Liz walked down to his room and found Michael and Alex in there. Max and Liz frowned ‘was there no where they could go to be alone?’.
“I’ll miss you” Liz kissed his lips “I don’t want to go” she placed kisses all over his neck.
Max held her close as he kissed her all over her face “We’ll be fine” he told himself as much as he told her.
Liz nodded and gave him one more passionate kiss “I’ll see you later, have a good weekend” she kissed his lips then ran out the door and down the hall.
Max closed the door and rested his head against it. He missed her already.
Liz ran up to the car outside, Isabel and Maria were both sitting in the car already. Maria was in the back and Isabel was sitting in the front seat.
She hopped in and breathed in, “Ok if we just drive and I don’t look back I’ll be.... fine” she closed her eyes and grabbed the seat belt and pulled it on.
Maria put her hand on her shoulder and rubbed her fingers back and forth “It will be ok” she whispered.
Liz opened her eyes and a tear dripped down her cheek “I know” she choked out.
Maria wiped her tear away and kissed her cheek. Liz rested her head on Maria’s shoulder and after half an hour of driving she had fallen asleep.
When she woke up the radio was on and Maria was asleep with her head on her lap. She rubbed her eyes and sat up, “Hey Liz” Isabel smiled from the front seat “Feel better?”.
Liz slowly remembered where she was and sighed “Yeah I’m ok” she tightened her pony tail and yawned “How long have we been driving?” she asked.
“2 and a half hours” Lillian answered “Now Liz like I told the other two, this is a fun trip ok? it’s a girls weekend, it doesn’t matter if I’m a nun I can still be fun, so let’s make the most of this weekend”.
Liz nodded and rested her head against the glass window. Max’s face drifted into her mind and she breathed in, this was going to be a VERY long weekend.
She's been living in her uptown world
I bet she never had a backstreet guy
I bet her mama never told her why
I'm gonna try for an uptown girl
She's been living in her white bread world
As long as anyone with hot blood can
And now she's looking for a downtown man
That's what I am
And when she knows what
She wants from her time
And when she wakes up
And makes up her mind
She'll see I'm not so tough
I'm in love with an uptown girl
You know I've seen her in her uptown world
She's getting tired of her high class toys
And all her presents from her uptown boys
She's got a choice
You know I can't afford to buy her pearls
But maybe someday when my ship comes in
She'll understand what kind of guy I've been
And then I'll win
And when she's walking
She's looking so fine
And when she's talking
She'll say that she's mine
She'll say I'm not so tough
I'm in love
With and uptown girl
She's been living in her white bread world
As long as anyone with hot blood can
And now she's looking for a downtown man
That's what I am
She's my uptown girl
You know I'm in love
With an uptown girl
My uptown girl
You know I'm in love
With an uptown girl
My uptown girl”
Max was lying on his bed with his hands behind his head. His thought’s surrounded with Liz.
“Max coming to dinner?” Alex asked.
“Nah I’m not hungry” Max answered “I’m just gonna have an early night”
“It’s 6:30” Alex frowned.
“I’m going to have a shower soon then I’m going to bed” Max explained.
Alex rubbed his brow then sat down on the end of the bed “Are you going eat this weekend or are we going to have to get hold of Liz on the phone so she can personally put some sense into you?”.
Max sat up “No I’m just not hungry ok?”.
“Sure what ever you say” Alex said annoyingly.
“Look I’m fine ok, just because she’s gone doesn’t mean anything, I went my whole life without her, 3 days isn’t going to change anything!” Max said trying to convince himself.
Alex frowned again, he loved her more than he thought. Poor guy. “Well I’m going down to dinner I’ll be quiet when I come back up”.
Max nodded “Thanks”.
Alex left the room and Max lied down again, missing Liz was driving him insane. It scared him how much he needed her already.
Liz hopped into the double bed she was sharing with Maria. The hotel they were staying in wasn’t that great but it was ok. Isabel was sleeping in the other double bed with Lillian.
“Are you thinking about Max?” Maria whispered in her ear as they lied in the dark. Liz nodded and rolled onto her side to face her, “I miss him so much” she whispered her eyes stinging.
“I know” Maria ran her fingers through Liz’s hair and smiled “I hope I’m as lucky as you”.
Liz stared at her in awe “You mean... falling in love?” she asked. Her friend deserved someone to love her. Liz hoped Maria would find her soul mate.
Maria nodded “Yeah, but how could someone love me that much? there’s nothing special about me, I am so plain, I’m not as beautiful as you and Isabel, you guys have way better bodies and don’t get me started on your personalities, every guy at the house thinks your hot or likes you heaps”.
Liz propped herself up on her elbow, “What are you talking about Maria? you are so beautiful and you have blond curls. Do you know how much I wish I had blonde hair like you and Is? do you know how often I lay awake just wondering how Max can love me so much? Maria you have a killer personality, you are so funny and you are such an individual! if any one is plain it is me! not you Maria”.
Maria frowned “Then why doesn’t any guys like me or think I’m cool?”.
Liz rubbed her free hand over Maria’s elbow “They suck that’s why, maybe the person for you is not at the house, I mean it is very likely he is not, but then again maybe he is right under your nose you just haven’t noticed yet” Liz swallowed “Maybe god want’s you to have fun searching for him, then when you find each other it will be extra special because you have been looking for each other for what will probably feel like an eternity”.
Maria smiled at Liz’s kind words “Will he need me like air? will he love me so much he can’t bare to be away from me like you and Max?”.
Liz laughed “Maybe more!” she exclaimed.
Maria chuckled “I wonder if he will have a big dick”.
Liz gasped “Maria!” she whacked her shoulder, “That is not what’s important”.
“Does Max have a big ding dong Liz? does he? does he?” Maria laughed.
Liz grabbed her pillow and whacked over Maria’s head “What makes you think I’ve seen his penis huh?” she said.
“Oh come on Liz, you two have been having showers together for weeks!” Maria said.
Liz blushed “so?”.
Maria laughed and rolled onto her back with a big smile on her face, maybe what Liz said was true, maybe her man was out there waiting for her too. That thought gave her butterflies in her belly.
“So lot’s of guys like me huh? who might they be?” Liz asked.
Now it was Maria’s turn to hit Liz over the head with her pillow.
Liz was bubbling with excitement, they were just a few minutes away from the house. Max would be waiting for her and she couldn’t wait to see him, this weekend had been so hard.
The car started driving through the gates and some people came into view, none of them were Max, he must be inside.
Lillian stopped the car at the side of the building and Liz jumped out, “Liz, Liz what about your bag?” Isabel called as Liz ran off.
Maria laughed “I don’t think we’ll be seeing her for a while”.
Liz ran inside and up stairs as fast as she could, she ran straight to Max’s room and almost fell forwards as he door opened.
Alex stood there with a stupid grin on his face. He grabbed her before she fell and she steadied herself. Liz tried to catch her breath, “Liz hi, um Max is in the bathroom”.
Liz smiled and pushed past him quickly. She ran over to the bathroom door, Michael was laughing behind her “He missed you just as much Liz, he hasn’t eaten for 3 days”.
Liz frowned as she opened the bathroom door, he hadn’t eaten?.
She closed the door behind her and smiled, Max was in the shower.
She walked through the steam quietly and stood in front of the shower curtain. what to do, what to do she thought. Before she could pull back the curtain, Max’s strong arms came around her yanking her into the shower. She shrieked in shock as the warm water poured down her body.
Max stood in front of her with a huge grin on his face, looking as handsome as always. A huge smiled spread across her face and she jumped into his arms “I missed you so much Max, I can’t bare to be away from you ever again” She breathed quickly as she placed warm kisses all over his face.
The fact that she was standing in the shower fully clothed didn’t matter. All that mattered that she was back in Max’s arms again, god she loved him so much.
Max turned off the shower and scooped her up in his arms. He stepped out of the shower and rapped a towel around her.
He then rapped a towel around his waist as Liz clawed at him. She plunged her tongue deep in his mouth. He moaned at the urgency of her kisses.
“I missed you too love” he whispered taking her in his arms. He lifted her onto the basin and pressed himself up in between her legs. Liz rapped her strong legs around his waist and her arms around his neck.
She had way too many clothes on, they both needed to feel their bare skin touching. Her and Max reached for her top at the same and yanked it off her. Her Bra went next then her pants. She sat there in nothing but her under ware and Max in a towel.
Max swept his tongue over her bare skin and Liz threw her head back. She moaned his name and pulled his towel away. She wanted him inside of her so bad, she was going to burst if they weren’t one soon.
She reached out and grabbed his arousal, Max moaned at the feel of her hands on him, he had always wondered what it would feel like to have her touch him like that. She ran her fingers over him and he moaned out her name.
Liz was loosing control quickly, she pulled him closer to him, his arousal pushing up against her wet underwear.
Max knew if they didn’t stop now, they wouldn’t stop at all. Liz’s nails dug into his back and she slipped off the bench brushing herself over Max. He groaned and tried to fight himself but the need was too strong.
Liz couldn’t believe what she was about to do, she got down onto her knees and placed her mouth over his throbbing member.
Max cried out and Liz ran her tongue over his length. Max was going to loose it, “Liz baby..” she cut him off as she ran her tongue over his sensitive head. Max lost control and Liz welcomed the wonderful juices into her mouth. Max pulled her back up to face him and she looked at him with a hungry look on her face.
He had to make her experience what he had just experienced, he pulled her underwear off and slipped her body back onto the counter.
Liz stared at him with pure love as he ran his hands up her thighs, once his hands reached her soft black curls he lunged one of his fingers into her. She cried out and Max pulled his finger out of her then thrust it back in. Max made love to her with his hands then brought his mouth down to her wet heat. He ran his tongue over her head then plunged it into her. Liz cried out as she went over the edge. Max drank her as Liz’s breath heaved in and out of her chest. “Max” She gasped out. Max looked up at her and she pulled his mouth back on hers.
“We have to stop” she whispered placing kisses over him “I want you so bad” she gasped out. Max nodded not removing his lips from hers, “I need you to Liz” he breathed in and out quickly. Liz rapped her arms around his neck and rested her head against his chest as they both fought to get some control.
After they had calmed down a bit Liz looked up into Max’s eyes, “I’m sorry, I don’t know what came over me..” Max placed his finger against her swollen lips “Shh” he whispered.
Liz smiled and placed a gentle kiss against his lips I don’t have any dry clothes” she whispered.
Max chuckled and looked around at the mess they had created. Towels and Liz’s wet clothes lay all over the floor. “I’ll go get you some” He said rapping a towel around his waist “I missed you so much” He whispered giving her lips a gentle kiss.
Liz nodded “I love you so much” she ran her fingers through his wet hair “One day Ill give you my self completely”.
Max smiled “I love you too” he kissed her lips one more time then walked over to the door “I’ll be as quick as I can ok?”.
Liz nodded and smiled “ok”.
“Liz what are you going to be doing about Christmas break?” Isabel asked “Are you going to your grandma’s?”.
Liz sat in front of the mirror curling her hair, “I don’t know, Max is going to be one of the people staying here because his parent’s can’t afford to fly him back. Can you believe that? I feel so sorry for the people who have to stay here over the Christmas break. Anyway my Nan makes me come stay with her, I was gonna ask her if Max could come, I can’t be away from him for two weeks”.
Maria ran her lip stick over her lips “Let’s just hope she says yes”.
“Yeah” Liz frowned.
“Lillian?” Liz asked as she walked into her office.
“Yes Liz?” Lillian asked standing up from her desk.
Liz closed the door behind her and blushed “I wanted to ask you for something”.
Lillian’s eye brows raised “yes?” she asked.
“Well I was wondering, if you could get me... uh” Liz blushed furiously “condoms”.
A grin spread across Lillian’s face and she could help but laugh a little. Liz placed her hands over her face.
“Liz are you sure you and Max are ready to have sex? your supposed to be waiting for marriage” Lillian folded her arms.
“Look I don’t think you can tell me to wait since....” Lillian cut her off “I’m not telling you not to sleep with him and I’m not forcing you to wait, I’m just making sure you are ready and not just letting your hormones take over”.
“I’m certain” Liz smiled “We are ready and anyway this is just in case we get out of... hand you know?”.
Lillian laughed softly as she got up from her desk, “Your a smart and sensible girl Liz, so I trust your judgement” She pulled a key from around her neck and pushed into the key hole on her tall wooden cupboards. Liz bit her lip and watched as Lillian picked up a small chest. She pushed a different key into the lock and opened the box. She pulled out six small packages foil packages and handed them to Liz, “At least your being sensible and about asking for protection”.
Liz put the small packages in her pocket and walked over to the door, “Thankyou” she said before walking out.
“No, you can’t do this Nan, please, please can he come?” Liz asked.
“No Liz I’m sorry” her Nan said.
“No your not” Liz hanged up the phone and walked over to the couch in the game room. She slumped back onto it and lifted her knees up to her chest. She buried her face in her legs and sighed.
2 weeks with out Max, that was just not possible. How could she last? she wouldn’t.
She had to come up with some thing that would stop this from happening, but what? her mind questioned. Frustrated tears stung her eyes, “He Liz what’s up?” a voice said as they sat down beside her.
Liz sighed “Nothing” she mumbled before she looked up. Adam sat beside her with his arms crossed.
Liz bit her lip then put her face back into her knees. “Is something wrong?” he asked.
Liz nodded, she did not want to talk to him about this.
“Are you going to tell me the problem so I can try my best to help, or would you rather not talk about it?” He asked.
Liz nodded again.
Adam laughed “Ok” he rested his head against the back of the couch and smiled “Is it something to do with Max?” Liz blushed and kept her head against her legs.
“You know if it is it’s ok that you tell me, actually you should tell me because I think you owe everyone something for keeping you guys a secret from the nuns”.
Liz lifted her head. He had her there. “Do you really want to hear my problems that have nothing to do with you and you can’t possibly help with?!” she asked.
Adam grinned “Well yeah”.
Liz snorted “Fine I am depressed because my Nan won’t let Max come stay with us for the Christmas break, he is going to be staying here and I can’t bear to be away from him for 2 weeks” she spat out.
Adam chewed the side of his mouth “Ok then” he got up and started to walk away.
Liz breathed in “Yah thanks for the help”.
He turned around “Well... if it makes you feel any better I’ll be one of the people staying here over the holidays too, so I can keep an eye on him”.
Liz glared at him in disbelief, “Are you trying to suggest that I don’t trust him?”.
Adam smirked “No I couldn’t possibly” he walked away and Liz sighed, ‘what a fagot’.
“He wasn’t causing you to much trouble was he? because if he was I would have to give him a crack” Michael walked over and sat down “It’s in the Liz law book Max gave me and Alex a copy of”.
Liz laughed “No he wasn’t”.
“Good, I’d hate to have to start a fight just for you” Michael smiled.
“Why would you need to?” Max asked as he walked over.
Liz chuckled and Michael frowned “Nothing, just protecting Liz for you man”.
Max sat down next to Liz and fought all his urges to rap his arm around her and kiss her.
Liz was also trying not to at least grab his hand. Max looked around to check no one was looking them quickly placed a peck on her lips “Why do you need protecting from Michael sweet heart?” he asked.
Liz smiled “Nothing he was just being stupid” she placed another peck on his lips, Michael groaned “Hello you have company”.
“Really I didn’t notice who?” Liz asked.
Michael stood up “Fine then be that way!” he sauntered away and Liz bit her lip “Oops”.
Max folded his arms and looked at her lovingly, Liz suddenly remembered what she had been upset about.
Max noticed the change in her face and frowned “What’s wrong?” he asked.
“Come” she stood up and lead him out of the room. They walked into the church and took a seat in a very empty row near the middle of the building. No one was in there apart from some girl sitting on the ground at the front of the cross at the end of the Isle. She was praying and had her face down.
“Max I rang my Nan” Liz started, she grabbed his hands comfortingly and sighed “And...” Max cut her off.
“And I can’t come and stay with you” He said for her.
Liz nodded and looked down at the ground “I can’t be away from you for two weeks” she whispered.
Max lifted her head to face him, he looked her straight in the eyes then placed a gentle kiss on her lips “We’ll figure something out”.
Liz breathed in “But will we? how are we going to change the situation? I can’t think of anything!”.
“I don’t know but there has to be something, maybe your Nan won’t make you stay with her for the whole two weeks since you really don’t want to, that’s at least something” Max explained.
Liz closed her eyes and stood up, “I’ll pray for something then” she walked past him and down to the front of the church.
She kneeled down next to the other girl and closed her eyes.
Max watched her from the back of the church and smiled, she was so cute.
“God please will you help me with something? You have probably been watching and I haven’t exactly been the best of people lately but I need you to help with something that is very important to me. You will have noticed that I have fallen in love with Max Evans and he has fallen in love with me. One of the consequences of being in love is not being able to be away from each other, me and Max can’t bear to stay away from each other an hour let alone 2 weeks and that’s what’s going happen. Christmas is supposed to be the best time of the year so we can celebrate you and be happy. I won’t be happy unless I’m with Max.” Liz swallowed as she talked to god through her mind. “Is there anything you can do to better the situation we are in? I need him so much that it hurt’s and to be away from him for 2 weeks will kill me. As it will for him, please, please help us. Thankyou for listening. I love you”.
She calls out to the man on the street
"Sir can you help me?"
It's cold and I've no where to sleep,
is there somewhere you can tell me?
He walks on, doesn't look back
He pretends he can't hear her
He starts to whistle as he crosses the street
Seems embarrassed to be there
Oh, think twice, 'cause it's just another day for you
and me in paradise
Oh, think twice, 'cause it's just another day for you,
You and me in paradise
She calls out to the man on the street
He can see she's been crying
She's got blisters on the soles of her feet
She can't walk but she's trying
Oh, think twice, 'cause it's just another day for
and me in paradise
Oh, think twice, 'cause It's just another day for you,
You and me in paradise
Oh lord, is there nothing more anybody can do
Oh lord, there must be something you can say
Oh, think twice, 'cause it's just another day for
and me in paradise
Oh, think twice, 'cause It's just another day for you,
You and me in paradise
You can tell from the lines on her face
You can see that she's been there
Probably been moved on from every place
'Cause she didn't fit in this
Oh, think twice, 'cause it's just another day for
and me in paradise
Oh, think twice, 'cause It's just another day for you,
You and me in paradise
Just think about it
It's just another day for you and me in Paradise
It's just another day for you and me in Paradise
It's just another day for you and me in Paradise
Liz rested her head against the glass of the window in her Nan’s smelly little car. Tears were pouring down her cheeks and a sob escaped her lips. “Max” she mouthed.
Her Nan sang along with her tunes on the radio not even caring to comfort Liz Parker who had been through so much.
Liz felt herself breaking slowly as they got further and further away from her home. Max.
Her Nan didn’t give a shit about how much Liz had wanted to stay at the home, she had practically dragged her away from Max’s strong grasp on her.
“I love you” Max had said as she got her final glimpse of him for two weeks.
Another sob escaped Liz’s lips, she didn’t care about holding back her heart reaching cries now, she needed him, she needed him so so much.
She cried out his name and hit her head over and over on the glass as she cried.
Her Nan’s cottage was half way through town in the same city as Liz’s home and Liz felt stupid being so close to Max and not be able to have him hold her and love her.
Her Nan pulled up the drive way and turned off the car “Liz?” she asked.
Liz ignored her, she hated her, she was as horrible and mean as her daughter, Liz’s mom.
“Liz Parker you look at me this instant!” Nan raised her voice so it was a loud yell.
Liz lifted her head off the window and turned to face her.
Her Nan looked over her red and puffy face that was drenched with tears “Why are you doing this? I look forward to having you come home at Christmas and this is how you show your appreciation to me?” She lifted her hand and slapped Liz across the face “Look at me when I’m talking to you, you selfish little brat!”.
Liz looked her straight in the eyes, “I pay for you to go to the best school and love you like your mother never did and you cry when I come and bring you home for only two weeks! you are my grand daughter start acting like it! who ever you are crying over, that little hoe Matt or what ever his name is, he is just a little boy who want’s your body and that is all, he will make you give yourself to him then he will drop you and then you’ll have something to cry about won’t you? you should be thanking me” Her Nan popped open the car door.
“Don’t you ever talk about Max like that!” Liz screamed.
Her Nan turned around to face her, her eyes blazing with anger “I’ll call him what ever I want to!” she yelled “Don’t you ever back chat to me!”.
“You don’t love me! you only look after me because no one else want’s me! I have finally found some one who makes me feel like I deserve to be alive! I was nearly killing myself every night because no one wanted me, he loves me and I love him nothing you ever say will change that!” Liz exclaimed.
Her Nan slapped her again “Don’t even think about coming inside until you can apologise to me” she stepped out of the car “and it better be a dam good apology too” she slammed the car door and walked over to the house.
Liz cried out and buried her head in the car seat.
Liz wandered around the side of her Nan’s house. It was 3 hours later and she still hadn’t gone inside. She needed to go to the toilet so bad that she feared she’d pee her pant’s.
She would just have to pee outside because there was no way she would apologise to that cow.
She came to a fence that was in front of the back yard. She lifted her leg up onto one of the wooden slats and pulled her self up onto the fence. She climbed over the fence and jumped down on to the ground. She cried out as her ankle gave in and she collapsed onto the ground.
“Crap!” she cried as she held her ankle. It wasn’t sprained, it would just take a minute to stop stinging. It must of just been ground shock she thought.
After a few minutes she limped across the yard and sat down on the little wooden swing that hang from a tree at the end of the yard. If she didn’t pee soon she would burst! after a second she got up from the swing and sauntered over behind the tree and pulled down her pant’s. She squatted down and quickly peed. After she was finished she walked slowly back over to the swing and sat down. She would not loose the fight with her Nan.
It was dark now. The light from inside the house glowed through the windows casting light across the yard. Liz was freezing but she would NOT go inside. She knew she could be inside in a warm bed or shower and enjoying a hot meal, but she’d rather rot then apologize.
Max’s face kept her occupied in her mind but that didn’t stop her stomach from grumbling because of hunger.
She wondered what Max was doing right now, was he eating a wonderful meal and laughing away with Adam?. She hoped so.
Her eyes caught a movement from the house and she looked up to see her Nan looking at her from the kitchen sink. Her eyes burned holes in Liz and she shivered. She would NOT apologize.
Liz opened her eyes as the sun cascaded across her face; the cold frosty grass below her had dampened her clothing causing her to be freezing cold. She had spent the night on the grass because of stubbornness and she wasn’t about to give in now.
“GET UP” Her Nan’s voice came from in front of her and she looked up at her.
“I said get up and come inside” Her Nan walked through the back door and Liz stood up with a satisfied smile on her face. She won.
She pulled her shoes off then stepped inside the house. It still smelt the same as it did last year. Exactly like the car.
Dust and tea tree oil. Her Nan never wasn’t wearing her oil, the smell revolted Liz.
“Sit down” Her Nan said closing the back door. Liz took a seat at the breakfast table and looked up at her Nan. She placed a bowel of porridge down in front of Liz and she dug into it quickly.
Her Nan sat down in front of her and watched “Why are you so stubborn?” she asked.
“Oh I don’t know” Liz licked her bowel.
“You slept on the lawn just so you wouldn’t have to apologize, I never would have been able to do that, your mother would have” Her Nan filled her bowel up with more porridge and then rinsed out the sink.
“I don’t want to be compared to her” Liz exclaimed.
Her Nan apologized then started making some coffee. “I was thinking about joining in on some of the activities that the school is throwing for the people who didn’t go away... you know just to fill in some time during the day” Liz explained.
“Your not” Nan said.
“WHAT?” Liz asked.
“It is set for people who didn’t get away from the school, you have gotten away from the school so you are not going” her Nan explained.
Liz hissed, dam her Nan, she had blocked off every way of her seeing Max in these next two weeks.
“I’m going to take a shower then go to my room for a while if you need me” Liz stood up and put her dish in the sink.
“Ok” Her Nan said cheerfully.
“I hope you choke on you coffee” Liz mumbled as she walked out of the room.
After her shower Liz climbed into the bed sheets of her un-used bed. Her bed room was still the same just dust- coated.
As soon as her head hit the pillow she was fast asleep. She hadn’t slept all night because of her thought’s of Max and also the uncomfortableness of the hard ground.
Liz decided she would go and see Max on Christmas Eve night. He did not deserve to have Christmas by himself. After her Nan had gone to bed she tiptoed into the kitchen and grabbed a brown paper bag, she filled it with chicken and a few other things then snuck out the front door. It was pouring down with rain outside and for 10:30pm the sky was reasonably well lit with street light’s.
“Great” she mumbled to her self as she pulled on her rain coat and hat. She ran across the lawn to the old wooden shed and pushed the key into the lock on the rusty metal clasp.
It smelt old and unused in the shed, it was pitch black in there so she quickly grabbed her Nan’s old bike and walked back into the pouring down rain.
She ran across the lawn to the gate hidden on the fence, she unlocked it then pushed her bike through the small space.
Her Nan stood in her bedroom window watching her leave with a surprised expression on her face, that girl was very determined to do what she wanted.
Her Nan bit her lip, she wouldn’t chase after her, she had to learn from her own mistakes and now Nan had to decide what she was going to do with the situation.
The rain felt like it was stinging every inch of her as she biked like mad down the street’s. “Max baby I’m coming” she whispered to her self, remembering why she was putting herself through the physical torture.
After 15 minutes of hell Liz finally reached the school, she dumped the bike behind some bushes then walked around the back of the building. The window at the back of Max’s bedroom was right there, now all she had to do was figure out how to get in it.
There was a pipe running up the wall a little over and if she climbed that she would have to creep past 2 bedroom windows before reaching Max’s room. Liz sighed, plus it was soaking wet so it was very dangerous.
“Think of Max” She whispered, a smile quickly lit her face and she hurried over to the side of the building, She looked up then decided she should would play Romeo, I mean would she ever get the chance again?.
She picked up a few stones from the ground and walked back onto the lawn. She threw a stone at his window expecting it to tap the glass but instead it hit about the brick about a metre away. She groaned then tried it again, she was unsuccessful again but on the third try she hit it and then again.
After a few more try’s she saw the curtain pull back and Max’s face appear at the window.
His eyes widened when he saw her and he opened the window as fast as he could.
“Liz?!” he asked.
Liz blushed “Uh hi Max” she smiled.
“What are you doing honey?” he asked.
“Being Romeo?” she answered. Max laughed and she walked over to the wall “I’m coming up ok?” she asked.
“Liz no it’s too dangerous” Max said his hair and face getting wet from the rain. “I did not come all this way to just stand out here in the rain ok, so I’ll be up in a sec” She grabbed hold of the pipe and lifted her foot. After a few attempts she managed to climb up the pipe to the first window. She went side ways across the wall gripping every thing she could get her hands on with Max scared as hell for her.
“Liz honey please just go back down, it’s to dangerous” Max tried to convince her.
Liz went to step onto the brick window sill of the second room but slipped and almost fell “Crap” she exclaimed. After putting her foot on there again she got to Max’s room semi-safely.
He grabbed her and pulled her through the window quickly, “Liz are you crazy?! you could have been hurt, I am the worst person ever for letting you do that!” he rapped his arms around her and pulled her into his arms. He heard paper crinkle and Liz pulled out a brown- half wet paper bag from under her shirt, “I brought you some food” she chuckled.
The room was being occupied by only him because Michael and Alex had gone away. There were candles lit every where making the walls glow with orangey- yellow and a quiet hum of 3rd eye blind played from his stereo.
Max smiled “Thankyou” He put the bag down then pulled her back into his arms, placing gentle kisses all over her face.
“Max I’m all wet” She reminded him but he didn’t let go so Liz just held him back.
“What are you doing here?” he asked.
“I came to see you of corse” she answered catching her breath from the tiring episode she had just put herself through.
“Does your Nan know where you are?” He asked closing the window she had just climbed in quickly.
“No” she answered “Of corse not I snuck out”.
Max groaned “I can’t believe you did this” he said tucking her soaking hair behind her ears.
“I had to Max, I couldn’t be away from you for another second” She placed a firm kiss on his lips.
“Come on we need to get you into some dry clothes” he grabbed her hands and led her into the bathroom. He grabbed a few towels then did his best to warm her up. He left her to dry her hair as he went a got her one of his shirts.
“Max why are there candles lit in here?” she asked.
“The power went out and the nuns went rushing around putting candles every where, there is a line of tea-light’s down the hall too” He smiled as he walked back into the room holding a t-shirt and jersey.
“Thankyou” she took them from him and left the room quickly.
She heard him turn the 3rd eye blind up and smiled
After a few minutes Liz walked out wearing his jersey and t-shirt that reached just above her knees. Max was pacing back and forth and he looked completely sexy with the candle light casting over his features.
Max caught her eyes and they both smiled, she walked over to him and he placed a gentle kiss on her lips “I can’t believe you came” he whispered.
Liz smiled “I had to” he took her hands a placed soft kisses on them “Dance with me” he whispered. Liz placed a kiss on his lips then rapped her arms around his neck. Max rapped his arms around her waist while Liz buried her face in his shoulder and breathed in his wonderful scent. She wanted to stay like this forever, just floating in his arms, like there was nothing else in the world but them.
“I’m only pretty sure, that I can’t take any more,
before you take a swing, I wonder, what are we fighting for?
when I say out loud, I wanna get out of this, I wonder is there anything I’m gonna miss?,
I wonder how’s it gonna be?
when you don’t know me”
“Max were you listening to 3rd eye blind when I came?” Liz asked
Max nodded “Yes, I was reading and the CD reminds me of you” He caressed her cheek and she smiled.
“Has your week been as bad as mine?” she asked placing gentle kisses on his neck.
“Yes” he said now caressing her back “Very very boring” he smiled.
Liz looked up into his eyes “My week has been hell, I’ve cleaned out the attic, mowed the lawns and vacuumed” she chuckled.
Max kissed her lips softly “Is your Nan a slave driver?” he asked.
Liz laughed “Worse”.
“Max?” A knock came from the door and Liz quickly hid in the bathroom.
“Yeah?” Max asked helping Liz get comfortable in the bathroom. The door opened and Adam stood in the door way “Everything alright?” he asked.
“Yeah” Max answered frowning.
“The nun’s are in bed, I was just going to as well, night” he said.
“Night” Max said. He walked over to the door and locked it after Adam closed it. Liz walked out of the bathroom and smiled “Is there going to be any more interruptions?” she asked.
“Hopefully not” Max walked over to her and she ran her fingers through his hair, “Good” she placed a gentle kiss on his lips “I missed you so much this week, you have no idea, she blocked off every way possible of me seeing you!” she rapped her arms around his waist and buried her face in his chest.
“I think I have an idea of just how much you missed me because double it and that’s what I felt” He smiled.
Liz blushed and looked up into his eyes, “Are you going to eat what I brought you? it’s going cold” she smiled.
“Oh!” Max walked over to where she had put the bag down and grabbed it. “I totally forgot” he walked over to the bed and sat down. He then pulled Liz down close to him.
“I wonder why?” Liz smiled.
“Hmm” Max grinned as he pulled out some chicken. He ate it all quickly occasionally feeding Liz against her protest.
He looked in the bag and pulled the last thing in there out. A piece of dark chocolate cake. A huge smiled spread across his face and he used two fingers to dig a tiny bit off it, he motioned for Liz to open her mouth and he fed her the little piece. She swept her tongue over his finger tips. Max couldn’t resist pulling her mouth onto his after that, he just had to feel her lips against his.
Liz moaned and pushed him down onto his back, Max put the cake and the brown paper bag down on the floor beside the bed while Liz placed kisses all over his neck.
Max opened his legs and Liz slipped her bottom half between them, her mouth lifted from his and she looked down at him dreamingly.
“I want to make love to you Max” she said shyly.
Max nodded and threaded his hands through her hair, his eyes digging holes through her.
She placed a gentle kiss on his lips “Do you want me too?” she whispered.
Max ran his fingers over her facial features “I love you more than life it’s self Liz, I want this is bad as you do”.
Liz bit her lip then a huge smile spread across her face, Max pulled her lips down on his and her tongue thrust into his mouth.
They slowly undressed each other, gently caressing a kissing each others bodies as each piece of clothing that was removed.
Liz reached for Max’s boxers and they both slipped them away from his hips. Max chucked them down on the floor beside the bed, leaving his body fully exposed to Liz. Liz removed her underwear leaving them now both completely naked. They had seen each other naked heaps and heaps of times before but knowing what they were about to embark on together made it have more of an effect. Liz rested herself underneath Max as he had his way with her chest. Low moans escaped her lips as he devoured her.
Max’s mouth returned to hers and theirs tongues moulded together once again, Max groaned and knew he better get some protection on fast. He reached into the top draw beside his bed and pulled out a small box. Liz had put half of the condoms that Lillian had given her in there straight after she had gotten them.
Liz watched him pull one out of the box and chuck the box on the floor, he opened the package quickly and Liz watched in awe as he rolled it onto him self.
“Are you sure Liz, I don’t want to hurt you?” he said resting his nose against hers, Liz pushed her mouth force fully against his and ‘yes’ rolled off her tongue and into his mouth. That’s all the permission Max needed, he lifted her leg up so it was bent and slowly eased his arousal up to her flaps. Liz closed her eyes as he pushed into her, her virginity was lost and small pain spread through her. That pain was quickly replaced with pleasure as finished pushing himself with in her.
“Are you ok honey?” Max asked fear of the thought he had hurt her thumping with in him. Liz opened her eyes and a reassuring smile reached her lips “I love you Max, you could never hurt me”.
Their lips returned to each others as they prepared each other. Max slowly eased himself back then thrust into her again. A loud moan escaped Liz’s lips and she threw her head back in pleasure.
After several thrusts they both reached the peak of their control and fell over the edge together. Max fell down on top of Liz heaving for breath. He buried his face in her neck and Liz ran her fingers through his hair. After a few minutes Max pulled himself out of her and removed the condom. Liz whimpered the loss of fulfilment and Max placed a gentle kiss on her lips “I love you” he whispered.
Liz smiled “I love you too”. Max rolled them over so he was on his back and Liz was resting in between his legs.
She rested her head in the hollow of his neck and drew small nothings on his chest with her fingers. Max grabbed her hand and laced his fingers through hers, he brought her hand up to his mouth and kissed each one of her knuckles. Liz placed a kiss on his neck and rubbed her nose against his skin. She changed her mind about what she thought earlier, she wanted to stay like THIS forever.

Liz shifted so she was lying on her back and Max was lying next to her propped up on his elbow. Max ran his fingers down her forehead and over her nose then down her lips.
Liz smiled as Max continued to draw a line down her body. He drew small patterns on her neck then headed down her chest, his finger lingered in-between the two moulds of her breasts then continued down to her stomach. He drew a small circle around her belly button the ran his fingers down the remaining distance of her stomach. He ran his palm through Liz’s black curls and then pushed his thumb over her flaps. A low groan escaped Liz’s lips and she closed her eyes. Max smiled and rubbed his finger over her small nub. He continued to rub her entry until Liz demanded him to quit playing around. He pushed a single finger into her and then pulled it out again, he thrust it back in again and Liz moaned in response. He released another finger into her and gently stroked her tight walls, he could feel her orgasm building up and he pulled his fingers out quickly and replaced them with his mouth. Liz cried out as he drank her, this caused her orgasm to explode with in her.
Liz heaved for breath and Max tucked her hair behind her head. She opened her eyes and placed a hot kiss on his mouth “You’ll be the death of me yet” she said.
Max chuckled “Then I better stop teasing you” He rapped his arms around her and she buried her face in his chest “You know this room was practically set up for sex” she said. Max looked up, she was right, the candles and the music? she must think he’s a sleaze.
“Your not a sleaze Max, you didn’t know I was coming” she placed a kiss on his bare chest. Max’s eyes widened “Did I just say that out loud?” he asked.
“A ha” she mumbled. “oh” Max frowned then dismissed it.
“I don’t want to go home Max, I can’t I need to stay here with you” Her heart ached as she thought about leaving his arms.
Max just held her closer, he couldn’t let her go, he needed her to be permanently close to him, she fulfilled him. A tear dripped from Liz’s eye and it stung Max’s bare chest, what were they supposed to do?.
Liz pulled back slightly and looked at the clock on Michael’s dresser, it read 12:49pm.
“Merry Christmas” Liz smiled slightly.
Max looked over at the clock and chuckled “Merry Christmas Liz” he kissed her lips warmly and Liz moaned as she felt his erection press into her thigh more, “Again?” she asked looking down at his arousal.
Max blushed “There isn’t a moment I don’t want you” he bit his lip and Liz smiled brightly “Well...” she grabbed his arousal and fondled with it “Let me see I if can help you with that”.
Max helped Liz pull her clothes on that were still semi- wet. Liz let out small whimpers and jumped into his arms “I can’t do it max, I won’t!” she cried clinging to him like he was her whole life.
Max held back a sob, how could he make her go when he didn’t want her to go? “Please I can’t go back to her she’s mean and she doesn’t understand me, I want to be with you Max only you, Let’s just run away and be together for ever” Liz sobbed against his chest and Max let tears drip from his eyes “To say I love you seems like such an understatement to what you really mean to me” He whispered capturing her lips.
Liz cried out “I can’t go...” she broke down and when he let go of her slowly she nearly collapsed, if he hadn’t caught her she would have. Max was afraid to let her go, what if she was to distressed on the way home and she didn’t see a car coming or something. If something happened to Liz he would just die, she was his whole life and more.
He walked them over to the bed and he sat down. Liz sat down on his lap and rapped her legs around his waist, she enveloped her arms around his neck and kissed his lips passionately as she cried.
“Liz baby?” Max whispered. Liz looked at him with her big doe eyes that made him want to swim in them, “Trust me this very hard for me considering just how much I want to just run away with you like I said but I know I have to do something before we end up devouring each other again” A small smile lit her face and Max breathed in “Liz I... I am so in love with you that it scares me sometimes, I love absolutely everything about you, the way you smile, your silky hair, the sound of your voice, your laugh, I could go on forever just telling you how much I love you, but we can’t be together every second of the day right now, as much as we both want to we are only sixteen years old and in school, Liz what I’m trying to say is, if we wait till the end of high school we can leave and never look back. I will marry you and we can have as many children as we want, we can buy a house in California by the beach and just spend the rest of our lives worshipping each other!” Tears wee pouring down her cheeks and she fought back another sob “I want that so bad, I don’t think I can wait” she choked out.
“I don’t want to” Max closed his eyes then opened them again “But we have to wait” his heart ached so bad.
Liz placed a kiss on his lips and buried her face in his neck “I love you so much” she whispered.
“I love you more than anything Liz Parker, one day to be Evans” he whispered, Liz smiled “Can I come and see you during the week again?” she asked.
Max nodded no. “I won’t be able to let you go again” he said tears dripping from his eyes. Liz nodded and realised it was her time to be strong, Max had been so strong but he couldn’t do it alone any more.
“We’ll be ok, it’s just a week” She tried to convince them.
Max nodded and she hopped off him and linked her fingers through his, “Come on it’s time for me to go” Max could feel her shaking as they made their way to the door.
They walked down the halls quietly and down the stairs “Liz? Max?” A voice came from behind them as they reached the door and they both froze, dam it they both thought they had been caught.
Thank god it was Lillian or else they would have been in deep shit.
“What are you doing here Liz Parker?!” Lillian growled walking up and placing her hands on her hips.
Liz bit her lip and Max frowned.
“Your Nan doesn’t know your here does she? come on I’ll take you home” Lillian said grabbing her arm.
“My bike is out behind the bushes” Liz whispered,
“Well we’ll have to put it in the boot” Lillian looked tired and worn out. “I’ll be out in the car” she opened the door and walked out into the now only spitting rain.
Liz rapped her arms around Max’s neck and kissed his lips passionately “I love you” she whispered before hurrying out the door and not looking back, if she did she wouldn’t be able to leave.
Liz’s Nan sat on the porch of her cottage looking through old photo’s. Liz was fast asleep in bed, it was obvious she had had a very tiring night. She had heard her sneak back inside around 3am.
After much thought she decided she wouldn’t let Liz know that she knew she had gone out last night, she would just leave that matter alone. She had felt bad enough for hitting Liz and making her work so hard this week that she would just let her have that one night away. But only if Liz didn’t go stuff it up this week, sure she was a tough women but she could be fair.
Liz opened her eyes and yawned, it was around 1:30pm and light was shinning in from the curtains, she didn’t need to see the sky to know it was raining.
She rolled onto her back and a tear slipped from under her eye lid, god she felt so empty.
“Dear god please let me get through this week with out loosing it” she prayed. The door opened and her Nan walked in with some washing, she placed the clothes on top of Liz’s dresser and turned around “Ah Liz your awake you must have been very tired last night, anyway Merry Christmas! I have a gift for you on the kitchen table” Her Nan walked out of the room and closed the door behind her.
‘What the hell was that?’ Liz thought, her Nan just wasn’t kind like that! she was harsh bitch who acts likes she’s a hidden cereal killer. Seeing her like that scared her.
Today did not feel like Christmas, Max was not lying with her and she would notice if he was kissing her. He wasn’t and there for it was not Christmas. He was the only gift she wanted.
She’d never spent the week in bed before, maybe she would this week, who knows maybe her Nan would let he, what with her new found niceness.
She was sore from her and Max’s love making last night but she didn’t care, she wanted the pain to be there all week so she had a reminder, it made her feel closer to him. She felt different, she felt like half of her was missing, the more important half.
A small smile spread across her lips as she thought of the gentleness of Max last night, he had been so worried he would hurt her or she would regret it or something. How could she regret the most wonderful experience in her whole life? his hands had felt so good on her skin and boy did he know what to do with them! and his lips, those lips had been on practically every single bit of skin she had on her body, well at least it felt like they had.
3 wonderful fulfilment's. Yip that’s right they made love three times last night, no wonder she was so tired, she felt like it was now night time and she should just be hoping into bed. Her eyes closed as she got comfortable again, a week in bed, how wonderful.
“Morning” Max smiled as he placed a gentle kiss on her lips. She smiled brightly “Good morning you” she rolled around to face him and sighed happily.
It had been two months since she got back after Christmas break and now she had Max again. The only thing was that they couldn’t keep their hands off each other when ever they were together (which was always) this was bad since they weren't supposed to let anyone know about them.
In class they would not concentrate, in church they sat close together, at dinner they held hands under the table, on outings they went off alone, at night they slept in the same bed, they had their showers together, this was when they occasionally made love, it was the only opportunity they had. They kept the water running in the shower so there was no suspicion as to what they were doing. They where inseparable and by now the other nuns were taking notice of it.
Lillian had kept them happy by saying she had talked to them about it and said they were just close friends and needed each other for comfort away from their parent’s and families.
The nuns all knowing what past Liz had had they did not question further.
Liz’s Nan had kept her mouth shut about Liz running off during the night, she herself didn’t know why and probably never would but she didn’t feel as if it was a big deal any more. She was old and withered and she had her own life to worry about let alone Liz’s.
Liz had her leg in between Max’s thighs and Max had his hand under her shirt gently cupping her breast. “I love you” Liz whispered before getting up and walking quickly back to her own room. Max smiled and rolled onto his back; A yawn escaped his mouth and he closed his eyes peace fully, he couldn’t wait till they were 18.
An hour later Max was wandering down the hall with Michael at his side, they walked up to Liz, Isabel and Maria’s room and Max opened the door.
Isabel was sitting on Liz’s bed in the middle of the room and Liz and Maria were playing twister in the middle of the floor.
Maria was upside down with her two hands on either sides of the mat, her top had fallen down exposing her stomach and bra. Liz was in a back arch and her top was pulled back slightly exposing her stomach too.
Michael found the sight of Maria very intriguing and for the first time in his life he was attracted to her.
Isabel spun the little arrow on the board and smiled “Liz, left foot on red”.
Liz gasped “WHAT! I can’t do that, what do you think I am some kind of flex queen?”.
“Then your out of the game chinca” Maria said her head still upside down, Liz groaned “No I can do this, I will!” she lifted her foot and focused on trying to reach red, “Oh hi Max, Michael” She heard Isabel say. She gasped and suddenly lost her balance, she cried out as she hit the mat with a thud “Crap” she said looking at the ceiling.
Maria screeched and jumped up “YEAH! I win WAHOO!” she jumped up and down and Liz sighed “Show off” she mumbled.
“What was that Liz? did I just hear jealousy?” Maria laughed. Isabel was chuckling and Liz just sat up smiling at Max, “Hey lovely”.
Max smiled and helped her up “Did that hurt?” he asked inspecting her back, “I’m fine” she insisted. Max rapped his arms around her waist and rested his chin on the top of her head.
Maria collapsed on the bed next to Isabel, Michael had taken a seat on the floor and leaned his back against the bed, when did Maria become hot? he wondered.
“Who want’s to go down stairs with me?” Maria asked.
“I will” Michael volunteered, she got up off the bed and they both walked to the door, “See ya” Maria said as they walked out.
Isabel felt awkward in the same room as Max and Liz when they were together, it felt like they were waiting for her to leave, “Well I’m gonna go next door to Nicola’s room” She got up and left the room. Liz frowned “Why do they alway leave the room straight away?” she wondered.
Max too was frowning “I don’t know”.
Liz turned and faced him “Want to play twister?” she asked, a devilish smile on her face.
Max grinned “Who’s going to spin the arrow?” he asked.
Liz bit her lip “We don’t need to use it”.
Michael sat down at one of the tables in the dinning hall and watched Maria as she walked over to the kitchen, “Michael do you want a drink?” She asked.
“Yeah” he answered folding his arms.
“Hey Mike” Troy walked over to Maria and reached into the fridge next to her.
“Hey Troy” Maria smiled
“Hi Maria” Troy grinned, he picked up a piece of ice and plopped it into his drink, he picked up another and as Maria was walking back he dropped it down the back of her top. She screeched and dropped the drinks on the floor “You jerk!”.
Troy chuckled and Maria chucked a piece of ice at him, it soon became a very physical and loud play fight.
Michael was watching and he felt a pang of jealousy with in, whoa where'd that come from he wondered?
Liz laughed as Max picked up the twister mat and lifted it over the top of them, she sprawled her self over him and kissed his lips passionately, “Where did this game come from?” He asked running his fingers through her hair.
“Maria got it for Christmas” Liz grinned “From her Uncle Buck”.
Max chuckled “Thankyou Uncle Buck”.
Liz playfully slapped his arm, then he placed his lips on the sweet skin of her neck.
“We are going to be going away for a week, to a camp. This is our first try at doing this and we hope you don’t let us down, if it is successful it may be repeated once each year”
The nun at the front of the class took a seat at her desk “Lillian our recreation organiser has spent a lot of time planning this and I hope you appreciate it, We will leave next week on the Tuesday. We are driving in a bus and if you have any questions feel free to ask any of the nuns or most of all Lillian, actually I advise you ask her, she knows more than the rest of us” she chuckled, “Class dismissed”.
Liz packed up her things then headed out of the class room, Max was outside with Maria, Michael and Isabel they had been sent out with half the class for Physical education. In other words a very long run. She had done her VERY long run before lunch, they had had to go down through the paddocks and up a hill then back again it was very tiring.
They should be back soon, in the mean time she was gonna go sit on Max’s bed and work on her school work, she liked doing it in Max’s room, his scent was everywhere.
She climbed the steps and headed straight for his room. She walked in and climbed onto his bed. She sighed happily as his scent filled her nose, yum, she thought.
A few seconds later Alex walked in “Hey Liz” he said.
“Hi” She smiled.
He walked over to the bed ands sat down next to her “Whatcha doin?” he said in a childish voice.
Liz laughed “The work we’ve just been given”.
Alex had gone on his run earlier too, they had jogged together for a bit but they had split up quite quickly.
Alex folded his arms “Why are you doing in now? we only just go it!” he exclaimed.
“I like to get it over and done with so I don’t have the nagging feeling that I have to go do it” Liz answered.
“Is it hard?” he asked.
“Not really, but it could be for you just depends on how intelligent you are” Liz smiled.
“Intelligent? are you trying to say I'm dumb and your brainy?!” he asked.
Liz laughed “If you have to ask then I guess I am”.
Alex frowned and Liz burst into laughter “Don’t worry Alex someone will still love you” she sympathised.
“Don’t you want me?” he asked his eyes widening as he joked.
Max took this moment to walk in, he pulled his sweaty t-shirt off with out realising Alex and Liz were sitting there.
Alex cleared his throat and Max turned around to face them, “Hi Max” Alex said.
Max eyed them both “What have you two been up to?” he asked.
Liz rapped her arm around Alex’s shoulder “Max I changed my mind about us, I want Alex, look at his.......” she looked at him frowning “Wait a minute look at your what?” she chuckled “It doesn’t matter I want him now!” she said sarcastically.
Max raised his eye brows and Alex ran his hand through Liz’s hair “Oh I love you so much Liz, kiss me please!”.
“Yes Alex, YES!” she cried.
Max stood there his mouth wide open. Liz pushed Alex back onto his back and he cracked up laughing. Liz soon joined him. Max ran his hand through his hair, he didn’t find this very funny.
Liz looked at him and smiled brightly “Oh come here baby” she held her arms out in front of her and Max just frowned “Since we’re letting the truth out, I, I’m in love with.....er Isabel” he winked then walked onto the bathroom.
“WHAT?!” Liz jumped up and ran across the room “Isabel? you could at least come up with someone you would actually... I don’t know suit?”.
Max turned to face her “Don’t say that about me and Isabel who are you to...” Liz cut him off “I’m sick of this game just kiss me!” she grabbed his shoulders and he put his hands in front of them “What game?”.
Liz frowned “Alex, Alex baby I’m coming!” She ran out of the room and jumped on the bed he was still lying on.
She lied down next to him and he rapped his arm around her shoulders, she rested her head on his shoulder.
“You know Alex honey, I was thinking..”
“Yes my love?” he asked.
“That we should you know go to my room for some privacy” She put her mouth up to his ear “Because I don’t think that person in the bathroom with be leaving any time soon! can’t he take a hint!” she turned to face max “What a retard!” she snuggled closer into Alex.
Max finished shaving his face then rinsed it “Don’t worry I’m going to go see Isabel”.
“Why?” Isabel stood in the door way then looked over at Alex and Liz “Ok what is going on in here?”.
Liz couldn’t hold back her laughter “Hmm Max why don’t you tell her, WHY you were going to see her?” she fluttered her eye lashes and smiled.
“Yes why don’t you?” Isabel folded her arms eyeing Alex and Liz, she felt something about the sight of them like that but she didn’t know what.
“I wasn’t” Max blushed “I was just joking, As is Liz, Aren’t you Liz?”.
Liz smiled brightly “Yes baby” she let go of Alex and walked onto the bathroom, “Can you please kiss me now? I missed you while you were on your run” she pouted and Max smiled “I’m all sweaty, sorry”.
Max was straining himself trying not to kiss her, he wanted to so bad.
Liz got up onto her tippee toes “I don’t care” she pushed her mouth against with heaps of force. Max groaned and rapped his arms around her waist.
Liz broke the kiss and smiled. She turned around to turn to see Isabel and Alex had left the room “Why does that always happen?!” she demanded.
Max tucked her hair behind her ears “Who knows”.
Maria shoved her duffel bag into the Bus’s side compartment and Liz passed her, her sleeping bag.
After they had packed in theirs and Isabel’s things they took their seats on the bus. Max came in soon after and took a seat next to Liz, she looked up and smiled, “Where were you?” she asked.
Max intertwined their fingers then kissed her knuckles “I just went to the bathroom” he answered.
Liz looked around then placed a kiss on his lips “I love you” she whispered.
“I love you too” He smiled and a gagging noise came from behind them “get a room!” Isabel chuckled from the seat behind them.
Liz frowned “Oh one day I’ll be able to do that to you Isabella!” she joked.
“Oh my goodness don’t call me that!” Is exclaimed “You know I hate it”.
Max laughed and Liz popped her head over the seat “Why are you sitting by yourself?” she asked.
Maria wanted to sit at the back and I kinda wanted to sit by myself, it’s no biggie” Isabel put her magazine down on her lap “Why?”.
“I was just wondering” Liz smiled “Hey did you bring any other magazines?”.
Isabel reached into her bag “seventeen?” she asked. Liz nodded and took it from her “Thanks”.
“No problem” Isabel continued reading and Liz slipped back onto the seat properly.
After an hour of driving Liz had her head resting on the window and Max had his head resting on her shoulder.
“Max?” Liz asked.
“Mmm hmm?” He mumbled keeping his eyes closed.
“Would you still love me if..... I looked like her?” Liz pointed to a girl wearing all black and had lots of piercings and tattoos
Max opened his eyes “Why are you planning on looking like that?”.
Liz bit her lip “No way, I’m just asking”.
Max smiled “Yes I would”.
“What about.... her?” Liz pointed to a fat lady with facial hair, Max scrunched his nose then bit his lip “Yes I don’t care what you look like”.
“We’re here” Lillian called from the front, she was holding a clip board.
Everyone scrambled off the bus and assembled out on the grass field “Ok now I’ll call out your names and a number. The number is for a bag up here at the front, the bags have tents in them, start pitching them straight away and the camp helpers will come around to help you”.
Liz stood with Maria and Isabel. "I bet you hope we have separate tents so you can sneak into Max’s easily?” Maria teased.
Liz frowned “of course I am!”.
Maria and Isabel chuckled.
Lillian started calling out names and numbers, “Isabel and Maria number 16!” Isabel frowned “Sorry Liz”.
“It’s ok I’m sure I’ll be with someone I’m friends with” Liz bit her lip, Maria hugged her “We’ll wait for you so we can build our tent next to yours ok?”
Liz smiled “ok thanks guys”.
“Liz and Renee number 18” Lillian called out the last two and Liz gasped “Oh my god her!!!! why her it could have been anyone BUT her!”.
Renee was the girl who Maria had got into a fight with on Max's birthday. Maria clenched her fists “er grrr ahhh holy fuck!” she cried.
Max walked over “What are you going to do?” he asked “I won’t let you share a tent with her Liz”.
Liz bit her lip “I’ll go speak to Lillian, you guys just go start setting up your tents ok? don’t worry I’ll get this sorted out” she headed over to Lillian.
“Ah Liz looks like we are tent buddies” Renee said grinning evilly.
“Not if I can help it” Liz pushed past her “Lillian I can not share a tent with her!”
“Why not Liz?” she asked.
“When Maria and her got into a fight on Max’s birthday it was...” Lillian cut her off “I remember... look there isn’t much we can do except give you a tent to yourself?”.
Liz smiled “I don’t mind that would be great”.
Lillian picked up tent number 19 “Ok Liz here you go, I suggest you tell Renee you won’t be sharing with her anymore”
Liz nodded and walked away holding the bag “Renee you have the tent to yourself”.
Renee scoffed then walked off to the other side of the camp.
Liz walked over to Maria, Isabel, Max and Michael “What happened?” Max asked.
“I get a tent to myself” She grinned at him.
A huge smile spread across Max’s cheeks “That’s...” she chuckled “excellent?”.
“A tent to yourself lucky!” Maria smiled “God must have been listening when I said..”
“Yeah he must of Maria” Liz opened the bag and glared inside “What are we supposed to do with all this?!”.
“Goodnight Liz” Maria and Isabel said as they climbed into their tent. “Night guys” Liz smiled from the camp fire. Max was sitting next to her roasting a marsh mellow, everyone had gone to bed except two people, they were taking forever to go to their tent’s.
After ten more minutes they finally walked away, Liz sighed “Finally”. She slipped in between Max’s legs and rested her back against Max’s chest. Max rapped his arms around her and placed a gentle kiss on the top of her head, Liz closed her eyes as Max traced warm kisses down the side of her neck.
She moaned slightly as Max ran his hands up the hem of her shirt, he drew lazy patterns on Liz’s stomach slowly inching higher and higher before reaching Liz’s bra. He cupped her underneath her top and teased her nipple with his thumb.
Liz sighed and turned her head to face him, she pulled his mouth down on hers and he eased his tongue through the crevices of her lips. Liz got up onto her knees and turned to face him. She rapped her arms around his neck and pushed her body up against his. He shuddered in delight and broke the kiss “I have wanted to do that all night” he smiled.
Liz nodded “Me too” she placed gentle kisses down his jaw line “I want you so bad” she whispered.
Max sighed “You still have your period?” he whispered, Liz nodded “Only a day or two then I won’t” she rested her forehead on his and stared longingly into hhis eyes “I love you” she whispered.
“I love you to” he kissed her lips then Liz stood up, she grabbed his hands and helped him up, they headed over to her tent and Liz zipped it open, she bent down and hopped in, Max soon followed.
Once in there Liz pulled her shirt over her head and then took her bra off, she slipped her sleeping top on and flicked her hair behind her ears. Max pulled his shirt and shoes off then hopped into the large sleeping bag, Liz slipped in next to him and rested her forehead on Max’s chest, “hmm” she moaned before drifting off into a peaceful sleep.
Liz woke up and the first thing that she took into recognition was the sound of rain on the roof of the tent. It was pouring down, she rolled onto her back and stared up at the top of the small confinement she was forced to sleep in. She hated this tent already, she had never slept in a tent before and she was glad she hadn’t.
Max moved so his head was resting on her shoulder, each little puff of air that came out of his nose brushed the skin of her neck sending a little tremor down her back.
The tent felt damp inside because of the rain and the air was cold and dirty smelling, it made her want to take a long warm shower as soon as possible.
Max would have to return to his tent soon, it was grey out, which made it hard to distinguish what the time was but Liz knew that nobody would have wanted to emerge from their semi-warm tents into the cold and wet rain.
She didn’t want to be left alone in this tent, she would be lonely and feel insignificant to the world just lying here. When Max had his arms around her, she felt like she was important and wanted. Most of all she felt loved, That was the one thing she had missed out on until he came along. Isabel and Maria loved her, sure, best friend love was great but you need a powerful love that made you feel important. You should have your parent’s love, it was after all supposed to be the most powerful love of all, it was the love you always turned to in your time of need. Liz’s best friend love was covering that parental love as well as the love she was getting from her friends. Max was the one she owed everything to though. He was the light at the end of the tunnel, except in his case, he was the person who held your hand as you walked through the tunnel and then was the light at the end, when you reached it. Liz liked it that way, the people in her life filled that void her parent’s never took an interest in.
Max stirred at her side and she tucked brushed his bangs away to the side of his “Wake up sleepy head” she said.
Max breathed in and snuggled closer to her, this made a large smile spread across Liz’s face.
“Baby wake up!” Liz kissed his lips and his eyes popped open “Morning” she smiled.
Max rubbed his eyes “morning lovely”.
She stared into his eyes for a long moment just floating in his soul that was so easily displayed in front of her.
Everything paused as they stared into each others eyes, Liz moved her head forward so her forehead was resting in his, their eyes were still locked and full of overflowing love.
Max’s lips pouted forward so they caressed Liz’s ever so gently. A smile spread across Liz’s face and she rubbed her nose against his “I love you so much Max” she whispered closing her eyes.
Max rapped his arms around her “I love you just as Much Elizabeth Parker, MY Elizabeth Parker” he ran his fingers through her silky hair then placed a kiss on her nose.
She buried her ace in his neck and sighed happily, she didn’t need anything else when she had this.
Maria squealed as the freezing water hit her skin “OH MY HO.......... CRAP!” she screamed.
Liz jumped out of her shower and rapped a towel around herself “What is it Maria are you ok?!” she bange don Maria’s shower door.
“NO!!!” Maria yelled “ARE THESE SHOWERS NOT HOT?!” she demanded.
Liz chuckled and her whole body eased up “Maria I told you, you should have been quicker to get up, I bet the hot waters all gone!”.
Maria screeched again “I HATE THIS!”.
Isabel and Nicola stood at the door laughing “Sorry Maria!” Nicola yelled “You better get up real early tomorrow!”.
“I don’t worry I WILL!” Maria yelled.
Liz looked around “Where are my clothes?” her heart rates speed picked up “Oh my gosh” she ran around franticly “Where’d they go?”.
Isabel and Nicola’s eyes widened as they walked over to their lockers “Our are gone too!” they screeched.
“Your joking me!” Maria walked out of the shower exasperated and shivering “My clothes better...” she stopped talking when she saw hers where gone. All of a sudden she burst into frustrated tears and collapsed onto the floor “I want to go home right now” she cried.
Liz knelt down beside her “It will be ok Maria, we’ll just get someone to go get us more”.
Maria continues to sob while Isabel and Nicola walked up tot he door and peered out “There’s no one out here” Isabel said.
Nicola frowned “Oh god they are all at the dinning hall on the other side of the camp!”.
Maria started crying harder and Liz rapped her arms around her “We’ll just go get some more”.
“I’m not going out there in a towel!” Isabel said.
“No one will see us” Liz frowned.
All three of them hurried outside and over to their tents and grabbed their clothes successfully.
As they reached each other again they started running back to the shower.
As they turned the corner they bumped into Alex and Nathan “Say cheese!” they yelled.
The girls screeched and the camera flashed.
“I’M GOING TO KILL YOU ALEX WHITMAN!” Isabel yelled.
Max snuck up behind Max with a huge smile on her face “Guess what?” She said into his ear.
Max spun around to face her “What?” he asked.
“My period finished this morning guess what that means?” she asked a delighted smile on her face.
Max raised his eye brows “Liz Parker you...” she cut him off as she pressed her lips against his “I have to go, I’m supposed to be abseiling, but tonight we can....” she placed another kiss on his lips then ran off.
Max shrugged and ran his hand through his hair.
That night Liz lay on top of Max as they had a heated make out session. “Max?” Liz moaned pulling her lips away from his, he moaned ‘yes’ and ran his hands up her bare back “They won’t... hear us will they?” she asked.
Max bit his lip “They won’t if we are quiet”. Liz smiled “Very quiet” she whispered.
“Yes” Max whispered back.
She pulled his mouth back down on hers and rolled them over so he was on top, Max ran his hand up her bare chest and Liz groaned, “Shhhh” he instructed. Liz bit her lip to keep from laughing. She nodded them rapped her arms around his neck.
The zip behind them was soon heard then both of Max and Liz’s eyes widened as they realised they were both about to get caught. A gasp was heard behind them and Liz was too afraid to look up and se who it was.
PART 17- conclusion
Joan staring in shook at the sight in front of her. Liz Parker in nothing but panties and Max Evans in nothing but boxers. She was speechless as she stumbled backwards “Uh bu...” she stammered and then swallowed “GET DRESSED!” she yelled before running off.
Liz closed her eyes and buried her face in Max’s chest “Oh no” she whispered fearfully.
Max’s heart was beating a thousand beats per second and he had a huge lump in his throat. He slowly eased off Liz and she pulled her shirt on quickly.
She couldn’t help but let a tear drop from her eye “Oh my gosh max.. what are they going to do to us..” He rapped his arms around her and she wept on his chest “I can’t loose you”.
Max kissed the top of her head “Liz they can’t take you away from me ok? they can’t” he said trying to be reassuring when he was about to freak out!
After getting dressed they both walked out of the tent hand in hand, they didn’t care if they got in more trouble for it, they needed each other now more that ever.
As they walked up to the fire place Lillian, Joan, 2 camp employees and Diana another nun stood there staring at them with unreadable expressions on their faces.
Liz’s eyes fell on Lillian’s and she silently prayed for her to help them even though she knew that this was one situation she could not help with.
Max gripped her hand tightly and Liz looked up into his eyes then back at everyone. Everyone was silent before Diana spoke up “How long has this been going on? or was it an all of a sudden...” she trailed off as she rapped her arms around herself.
Liz and Max both bit their lips, Liz’s eyes once again fell on Lillian.
“I ASKED YOU A QUESTION, answer me!” Diane asked loosing her patience.
“A year” Liz said frustrated.
Gasps where heard from everyone but Lillian, she was trying very hard to act shocked.
It was dark outside because it was just after 11:00pm, all the other student’s were in their tents and probably asleep.
“Get out of our sight” Joan said rudely.
“No” Max decided to make a stand while he still could “Can you honestly say that you didn’t expect boy and girl interaction at the house?! how could there not be, we are teenagers for gods sake! and you all act surprised! did you actually think you could have a co-ed school and just expect us to not be interested in the opposite sex?!” He breathed in a shuddering breath.
“That is enough!!!” Diane yelled “Go to bed! we will continue with this in the morning”.
Max and Liz just stood there.
“Did you hear me?! and I want you both to think about how you have done us wrong by breaking the lords rules and ours, you should be ashamed of your selves”.
Max and Liz walked out of sight and Liz broke into to tears, Max held her close “Everything will be ok Liz, I promise, Lillian will stand up for us”.
“She can’t do anything” Liz cried and after a while she broke away from him “Just go to bed, we’ll just have to wait and see what happens” she folded her arms over herself.
Max kissed her forehead “I love you, that’s all that matters” he walked away and Liz climbed into her tent. As soon as she hit her sleeping bag she burst into tears.
“Your not welcome at this school anymore, your Nan is coming to get you” Diane said to Liz, “Max you have no where to go so you will be staying here, your things are being moved to a lone room, you no longer share a room with Alexander and Michael, so after we are done in here I will show you your new sleeping arrangement”.
Liz stood up from her chair “You CAN’T DO THIS!” She cried.
“You broke the rules of this school, unfortunate for you the rules are taken very seriously and have harsh consequences, we have pride in our student’s and when they don’t show the same respect...” Max cut her off “Bullshit!” he yelled, “You are a bunch of ignorant cows and don’t give a dam about any one but yourselves. I mean how long did it take you to finally figure out about me and Liz? if you knew anything about the student’s at this school you would have noticed how much we love each other straight away!”.
Liz intertwined their fingers and Max looked down into her eyes. She had tear streaks down her cheeks and her beautiful eyes were red and puffy.
“Enough!” Lillian yelled “This yelling will go no where, Elizabeth I suggest you go start packing” .
Liz stared at Lillian with pure hatred “You” she whispered “Why don’t you tell them about your secret huh?!” she raised her voice so she was now yelling, she turned back to Diane “There’s another example of how little you know about the event’s going on right under your nose, one of your own teachers...” Lillian put her hand over Liz’s mouth “I SAID ENOUGH!” Lillian pushed both Max and Liz to the door, Liz forced herself to turn and face Diane “I suggest you keep a close eye on sweet and wonderful Lillian, she will disgrace you more than we have”.
Lillian slammed the door and turned to face Diane “What is she talking about sister?”.
Liz’s legs gave out as soon as the door closed and she hit the floor with a thud. Max picked her up quickly and carried her up stairs. Student’s eyed their every move, but Max nor Liz noticed any of it, the only thing that existed was them.
He pushed open the door to Liz’s room and put her down on her bed, “What happened?!” Maria and Isabel demanded straight away.
Liz rapped her arms around Max’s neck and pulled him down as close as he could get to her, She buried her face in his hair “They can’t take me away from you” she whispered.
Max nodded and rapped his arms around her waist “You aren’t going any where, you and me one” he whispered.
Isabel and Maria had left the room all ready, what ever had happened must have been real bad.
Tears poured from Max’s eyes and Liz sobbed out “I can’t live without you..”.
“I don’t know what she was talking about” Lillian said quickly, a little too quickly.
Joan was eyeing her from the corner. What was Elizabeth Parker talking about? was she right to be suspicious about Lillian?
On more than one occasion she had caught Lillian coming back to her room at very early hours of the morning, she had not thought much of it the first time, but after it happened more often she couldn’t help but think something up.
It was not right of her to be questioning her sister but after Elizabeth had said something, she automatically thought back to those times at night she had seen her sneaking around. When she asked Lillian what she was doing she would say things like “I thought I heard a noise and was checking on the student’s”.
Joan frowned, she would definitely be keeping an eye on Lillian now.
“It is unfortunate we have to greet each other on such harsh terms” Diane shook hands with Liz’s Nan. Liz’s Nan and her went way back, they had gone to college together.
“Yes it is” Liz’s Nan bitterly smiled her lips stitching together crookedly, “Is she ready to go?”.
“We shall go and find out” Diane lead them up stairs to Elizabeth’s room, they opened the door to see Max and Liz curled up together on the bed, holding each other like life would not exist another second if they tightened their grip on each other for a few seconds.
Liz’s Nan’s widened “Elizabeth Parker!” she hissed.
Liz opened her eyes and merely looked at her before snuggling closer to Max.
Diane began collecting Liz’s belongings and packing them in a suit case. Maria and Isabel rushed in “What’s going on?” Maria asked.
“Oh hasn’t Elizabeth or Maxwell informed you yet? have they been to rapped up in each other to care about rules, like usual?” Diane asked.
Isabel twitched “What do you mean?!” she exclaimed.
“THAT’S mine” Maria grabbed some magazines off Diane and stared at her wickedly.
“Elizabeth is going home, she is no longer welcome to attend our school” Diane explained.
Maria and Isabel gasped “you can’t..” Maria started.
“Can’t what Maria?” Diane asked her lips pursed and her arms folded.
“They haven’t done anything wrong!” Isabel exclaimed “Why are you doing this?! they are in love and your splitting them up! you have no idea what this is going to do to them”.
“They are not in love...” Diane started.
“I feel sorry for you” Liz’s voice came from the bed. Everyone turned to face them as Liz and Max sat up slowly. They still had their arms rapped around each other with full strength.
Diane growled “Why would that be?” she asked sourly.
Liz’s Nan stood watching this all happen not knowing what to say, this was just going to far.
“Because you don’t know what it is to be loved obviously” Liz stated bluntly.
Diane snorted “I have the lords love that is all I need”.
Liz sighed “No true love. God loves us all, what makes you think your extra special to him? you tell us every day that we are all special to him, but you seem to think you get more of his love” She turned to Max and brought their intertwined hands up to her mouth.
“You don’t get to see him stare at you with warmth, desire, trust, friendship, companionship and lust, you don’t get to feel his hand in your hair or his lips on your skin” Max ran his hand through her hair then placed a warm passionate kiss on her lips.
She smiled and turned back to face Diane “God can love you, but you miss out on so much”.
Maria and Isabel smiled, you go girl, Maria thought.
Diane just swallowed “You have ten minutes to get your things ready then you are no longer welcome on the premises” she left the room and Liz breathed in loudly.
“Oh no” she shuddered.
Her things were packed up by her Nan then She tried to get Liz to budge from Max’s arms “No I can’t leave Nan please don’t do this” Liz cried.
“Come” Her Nan pulled her to her feet and handed her one of her bags “It is time to go”
“No!” Liz cried. Her Nan grabbed her wrist and started pulling her towards the door.
Max held the other one of her hands, his whole world was falling apart right before his eyes.
Liz stood in front of the her Nan’s car with her arms rapped around Max “What can we do?” she whispered in between sobs.
“I don’t know” max wiped her eyes “We will figure out some way around this I promise, they cant keep us apart, Liz your a part of me even if your not with me physically”.
Liz nodded “Your my other half Max”.
He kissed her passionately, he could taste the salt of her tears on his lips “I love you so much” he whispered.
“And after a year we will be 18 and can run away and get married and have heaps of babies” she said remembering what he had said to make it easier for her to leave on Christmas. That night she was leaving for a week, today she was leaving for an undetermined amount of time.
Max smiled and kissed her again “Yeah”
“Liz I’m going to miss you so much!” Maria hugged her “Friends forever babe, I’ll come see you when ever or if I can”.
“I know” Liz whispered “Take care of him for me?”.
Maria nodded “You know I will babe” Maria wiped her eyes “Love ya” she plastered a fake smile on her face as Isabel pulled Liz away from her.
“I love you Liz” Isabel whispered, “I love you too Is” Liz said, “I owe everything to you, you made me get up the nerve to get together with Max”.
Isabel laughed as she wiped her eyes “I remember that day”.
“You better” Liz whispered.
“Come on Liz” Her Nan pressured.
Liz pulled Max’s lips down on hers “I’ll see you soon, I know it” she said.
“Mmm hmm” Max said “I love you” he said.
“I love you too” Liz hopped into the car and her Nan shut the door. Liz kept her arms locked on Max’s as the car started.
As it started to pull away she pressed her face against the back window, ‘I love you’ she said placing a kiss on her palm and putting it up against the glass.
“I love you too” Max whispered.
