Disclaimer: Don’t worry I don’t own any of the characters . . . Roswell belongs to
Melinda Metz and Jason Katims, but I can only dream of what I’d do to Max/Jason if I
owned him!
Summary: This fic is based on the song ‘It wasn’t me’ by Shaggy. When I first heard
this song, it inspired me to write.
Category: Max/ Liz (of course, have I ever actually written about someone else?)

Author’s note: Okay guys, I know it’s been awhile since I’ve worked on this fic, but I’m
sticking to it now that I’ve finished rewriting until I see you again. Also I changed Kyle’s
character to Sean instead because I love Kyle now, he’s such a sweetheart (not like my
Max though )

I’ve appreciated all of the feedback I’ve recieved, I love reading all of your comments!

Shaggy "It Wasn't Me"
(Yo man) Yo
(Open up man) What do you want man?
(My girl just caught me)
You let her catch you!?
(I don't know how I let this happen)
With who?
(The girl next door, you know?) Man...
(I don't know what to do) Say it wasn't you

Honey came in and she caught me red-handed
Creeping with the girl next door
Picture this we were both butt-naked
Banging on the bathroom floor
How could I forget
That I had given her an extra key
All this time she was standing there
She never took her eyes off me

How you can grant the woman access to your villa
Trespasser and a witness while you cling on your pillow
You better watch your back before she turn into a killer
Best for you and the situation not to call the beaner
To be a true player you have to know how to play
If she say you're not, convince her say you're gay
Never admit to a word when she say makes a claim
And you tell her baby no way

But she caught me on the counter
"It wasn't me"
Saw me banging on the sofa
"It wasn't me"
I even had her in the shower
"It wasn't me"
She even caught me on camera
"It wasn't me"
She saw the marks on my shoulder
"It wasn't me"
Heard the words that I told her
"It wasn't me"
Heard the screams getting louder
"It wasn't me"
She stayed until it was over

Honey came in and she caught me red-handed
Creeping with the girl next door
Picture this we were both butt-naked
Banging on the bathroom floor
I had tried to keep her from what
she was about to see
Why should she believe me
when I told her it wasn't me

Make sure she knows it's not you and lead her on
Da right prefix whenever you should see her make da giggolo flex
As funny as it be by you, it not that complex
Seein' is believin' so you better change your specs
You know she not gonna be worrying bout things from the past
Hardly recollecting and then she'll go to noontime mass
Your answer: go over there but if she pack a gun
You know you better run fast
But she caught me on the counter
"It wasn't me"
Saw me banging on the sofa
"It wasn't me"
I even had her in the shower
"It wasn't me"
She even caught me on camera
"It wasn't me"
She saw the marks on my shoulder
"It wasn't me"
Heard the words that I told her
"It wasn't me"
Heard the screams getting louder
"It wasn't me"
She stayed until it was over

Honey came in and she caught me red-handed
Creeping with the girl next door
Picture this we were both butt-naked
Banging on the bathroom floor
How could I forget
That I had given her an extra key
All this time she was standing there
She never took her eyes off me

Gonna tell her that I'm sorry for the pain that I've caused
I've been listenin' to your reasonin'
It makes no sense at all
We should tell her that I'm sorry for the pain that I've caused
You may think that you're a player
But you're completely lost

Honey came in and she caught me red-handed
Creeping with the girl next door
Picture this we were both butt-naked
Banging on the bathroom floor
How could I forget
That I had given her an extra key
All this time she was standing there
She never took her eyes off me


“I still don’t understand why you moved.” Tess Harding told her boyfriend Max Evans as
he set a box down on the floor. “You could have just moved in with me.”
“Tess, I like having a place of my own. This apartment’s a lot nicer than my old one and
five minutes closer to you.”
“That’s true.” Tess leaned up and kissed him. “I’m going to be staying late at work
tonight, so I’ll stop by tomorrow evening to help you finish unpacking.”
“All right.” Max gave her a quick kiss.
“Bye.” Tess let herself out and Max flopped on the couch as he looked at the boxes
surrounding him, waiting to be unpacked.

He sighed and ran a hand through his thick dark hair. He was glad he finally moved, he
hated his old apartment. The showers were cold, the stove never worked, and he had
some noisy neighbors. So he wound up spending most of his nights at Tess’s. That’s
when she suggested that they should live togther. Max wasn’t ready for that type of
commitment yet. He knew when he was, it wasn’t going to be with Tess. He liked her,
but he wasn’t sure if he could picture himself spending the rest of his life with her.
Max was an accountant and when he got a promotion last month, he immediately
searched for a new place.

He got up and starting opening the boxes, and soon packaging peanuts and tissue
papers were all over the floor. He remembered his trash bags were in the car and
walked out to get them. After getting them, he was walking back down the hallway,
trying to read the numbers on the door since he still wasn’t familiar with the building yet,
he bumped into someone.

“Oh I’m sorry!” He exclaimed. He then realized it was a woman. A gorgeous woman.
She was about 5'6" with silky dark brown hair that cascaded down past her shoulders
and he resisted the urge to run his fingers through it. Her eyes were like two dark pools
of ebony and Max could get lost in them forever.

“Oh, it’s okay.” She replied, interrupting his thoughts. “Are you the person that just
moved in?”

Max nodded, not able to find his voice.

“Well, I’m Liz Parker. I live right next door.” She extended her hand.
Max took it and warmth spread through his whole body. “Max . . . Max Evans.”
Liz smiled. “It’s nice to meet you. Did you know that you’re the only other person the
same age as me in this building?”
Max shook his head.
“Yeah, well there’s a lot of older couples, a mom with two kids and this really creepy
guy, if you see him you’ll know whom I’m talking about.”
Max grinned. “I’ll take your word for it.”
Liz glanced at her watch. “I have some work to do, but I’ll see you around.”
“Okay, it was nice talking to you.” Max walked into his apartment and looked around,
moving was definitely a good idea.

Liz opened the door to her apartment and leaned against it after closing it. She ran her
fingers through her hair and let out a long sigh. The way Max looked at her, it was
making her feel things that she hadn’t felt in a long time.
And she liked it. She liked it a lot.

The next day after work Max was walking toward his apartment when Liz coming up the
hall behind him, struggling to carry all of her grocery bags.
“Oh here, let me help you.” Max said while rushing over, taking some of her bags.
“Thanks, you’re a lifesaver.”
They walked over to the door and she opened it and led him to the kitchen. They set
the bags down on the counter and Max started helping her unload them.
“Oh, you don’t have to do that.”
Max shrugged his shoulders. “Don’t mention it.” He smiled. “Think of it as sucking up
to the new neighbor.”

Liz gazed at him and all of a sudden got a flash of him actually sucking her. Her face
turned a bright shade of red as she shook it, then turned to put something in the cabinet.
Max watched as she reached up, his eyes traveling down to her bottom. He was so
tempted to reach over and grab it. He pulled something out of the grocery bag, but his
eyes were still fixed on her and it fell out of his hand.
Liz immediately spun around and saw the strawberries spilled over the floor.
They both went down to get them at the same time and their heads bumped.
“I’m sorry.” Max proclaimed. “God, I can be so clumsy.”
“Hey don’t worry about it. If we hurry, I can use the 5-second rule.”
Max smiled. “Do you use this rule on everything?”
“Just uh . . . somethings . . . ”

The next thing either of them knew, their mouths were attacking each others. A moan
escaped low from Liz’s throat as her fingers frantically tore open his shirt, she ran her
hand down his rippled flesh.
Max took off her blouse in a hurry, sending buttons flying and his mouth sucked greedily
on the curve of her neck, working his way down to her breasts, covering his mouth over
the satin until he reached back and unclasped the bra. He took the hardened nipple
with teeth, tugging at it.
Liz’s head rolled to the side as she gripped tightly on his shoulders. She had never felt
such lust before. Her mouth crushed against his while her hand fisted in his hair and he
lifted her up on the counter, brushing aside the bags.

Liz reached for his pants, yanking them down with his boxers as Max repeated the
action on her. She fell back onto the counter as he plunged into her wet heat. Max
groaned as he thrusted in and out of her. God, she felt so good. He felt his release
coming and squeezed his eyes shut holding it for Liz.
With a cry, Liz soon was climbing up the ladder of ecstacy with Max.

Tess walked down the hall toward Max’s apartment. She knocked on his door, no
answer. All of a sudden she heard a cry of pleasure from the place next door. Tess
rolled her eyes thinking of what Max would have to live with. She reached into her
purse and pulled out the extra key Max gave her and made herself at home.

Twenty minutes later, Max came into his apartment. Tess rushed over to him. “Max,
where were you? It looks like you worked up a sweat.”
Max ran a hand through his damp hair. “Oh yeah. I uh, was at the gym.”



Saturday morning:

Max was getting ready to go to the gym, for real this time. Just as he was opening the
door, Liz was standing there, her hand held up ready to knock.
“Hi Max. I uh . . . was wondering if we could talk.”
“Yeah, sure. Come in.” They went over and sat on the sofa. “Sorry it’s still messy in
here. I’m almost done unpacking.”
“Oh, its fine.” Liz paused. “Max about last night . . . ”
Max sighed. “Yeah, I know.”
“I’ve never done anything like that before, so I don’t want you to think I’m easy or
something. I even have a boyfriend, Sean.”
“No, I didn’t think that about you. And I have a girlfriend. It was just something that
happened so fast we couldn’t think things through.”
“Yes, you’re exactly right. I mean I’m happy where I am with Sean.”
“And I’m happy with Tess . . . kind of.” He added the part under his breath but Liz still
heard it.
“What do you mean, kind of?”
Max shrugged his shoulders. “She just wants this huge commitment from me. We’ve
been together 2 ½ years but I’m not ready for that yet.”
Liz nodded. “Sean’s the same way with me. He wants me to move in with him, but I
need my own space. We got together four years ago. I’ve never cheated on him once,
until last night.” Liz sighed. “But I just couldn’t seem to help myself.”
“Yeah . . . ” Max agreed and tucked a strand of her hair behind her ear. She was so
beautiful and it was true, he couldn’t help himself around her. He leaned forward and
kissed her gently. She opened her mouth, deepening the kiss.

Liz’s hand went to the nape of his neck playing with his soft hair.
Max’s hand roamed up her shirt, but he quickly pulled away from her when he heard the
door knob turn.
Liz’s eyes fluttered open, wondering why he stopped. “Wh-What?” Then she saw the
door open and quickly composed herself.

It was Tess. Max meant to get up, but after glancing at his lap, he grabbed a pillow off
the sofa to cover it instead. “Hey, Tess, uh what are you doing here?”
Tess glanced suspiciously at Liz. “The new art gallery opens today. I wanted to go with
“Sure. Um, Tess this is Liz. She’s the girl next door.”
Tess raised her eyebrows. “So I’ve heard.” She replied thinking of the moans she heard
from her apartment last night.
“I was just leaving.” Liz stood up. “It just wanted to come over and introduce myself to
Max. It was nice meeting you Tess.”
Tess gave Liz what she knew was a fake smile.
Liz left and Max tried not to frown. “Let me take a shower and then we can go.” A cold
shower Max thought to himself as his erection still throbbed.
“Fine, and I’ll rearrange some of your things. It looks hideous in here.”
Max rolled his eyes as he headed to the bathroom.



Liz had just finished a long day of work. All she wanted to do was take a hot shower
and then curl up with a book. She hurried toward her apartment, rummaging around in
her purse, looking for her key. She found it, unlocked her door and went in.

Max walked down the same hall about five minutes later. As he was opening his door,
he noticed something from the corner of his eye. Curious, he bent down and picked it
up, realizing it was a wallet. He opened it and inside there were pictures in the middle.
They were of Liz, her high school and college graduation. Another was a picture of her
and a guy, he assumed Sean. He looked at the other ones of her family and friends and
closed it. He knocked softly on Liz’s door. No answer. He turned the knob and it
opened, she had left it unlocked. He figured he’d leave the wallet on her table and
leave. But then he heard the water running in the bathroom.
I’ll just go over and yell to her what I did he thought. Nothing else.

Yeah right.

He walked toward the bathroom and stuck his head in. Behind the shower curtain he
could make out her form. She was humming a tune to herself and Max smiled.
“Liz?” He said quietly while shutting the door behind him.
He saw her figure freeze and a moment later she stuck her head out from behind the
curtain. “Max! What are you doing here?”

Max just stared at her, becoming speechless. “I uh . . . your wallet, you left it in the hall,
your door was unlocked so I put it on the table.” He took a step closer to her, not being
able to stop himself.
“Oh, um thank you. I didn’t even realize I dropped it.”
“I looked at the pictures.” He took another step forward.
“Oh.” Liz’s eyes dropped to his mouth. “Did you like them?”
Max nodded and then all of the sudden his mouth met hers for a crushing kiss. His
hand ran down her shoulder and onto her back. She was so wet, her skin so smooth.

Liz unbuttoned the first button on his shirt and kissed the exposed flesh. Her tongue
swirled around his skin as she undid the next button and kept doing so until the shirt
descended to the floor. She slid his pants down and he kicked them off with his shoes
and socks. She dropped to her knees and smiled up at him as she yanked down his
Max groaned as she wrapped her hand around his pounding manhood. “Liz . . . you
don’t have to do this . . . ”
It was too late. Her mouth was already on him. Her lips alternating the pressure as she
sucked harder. Max’s hand went to her shoulders while she grabbed his hips pulling
him closer. It had never been like this for Liz. He tasted so good, she couldn’t seem to
stop. She moaned and Max groaned again and pulled her up to him.

He got into the shower with her and they shared long, wet kisses as the water streamed
down their bodies. As Liz’s back was pressed against the tiled wall, her mouth sucked
at every inch of skin she could. Max brought her leg up on his hip and plunged into her.
Liz cried out and wrapped her other leg around his waist. Their mouths bruised together
with intensity as Max’s hand fisted in her hair.

They heard the knock on the door and Liz tore her mouth from his.
‘Sean.’ Liz mouthed to Max. “Sean, what are you doing here?” She asked, still clinging
to Max.
“I stopped by to see if you wanted to go see The Mummy Returns.”
“Oh, I thought I told you I don’t like those kind of movies.”
“I’m almost done. I’ll be out in a sec.”
“Want company?”
Liz’s eyes widened. “Oh, uh no. I just restocked the fridge. Help yourself.”
She was answered by the slamming on the door.
“He’s always eating.” Liz explained. “He’s not fat or anything though.”
Max nodded. “Oh.” He was still holding onto Liz and slowly let her go.
Liz grew cold without his warmth and opened the curtain and grabbed a towel.
“You can just stay here until we leave. I’m sorry.”
“Okay. Liz do you think you come over tomorrow? We really need to talk.”
Liz nodded. “I know.” She replied while handing him a towel. “Well, I’ll see you then.”
Liz turned and was out of the room.

Tomorrow they would set things straight. Max ran a hand through his hair and sighed.

After changing, Liz walked into the kitchen. Sean was making a sandwich.
“It’s my fourth one, that okay?”
“Yeah.” Liz frowned. She had been going out with Sean for so long she had forgotten
anything else. It was time to move on.



Max found himself walking bare foot along the beach. The sun was setting, the beach
was barren. The waves gently crashed against the white grains of sand as he continued
to walk. He abruptly stopped when he saw her.

She was standing in the sand looking out into the endless sea while the waves lapped
over her feet. Her long dark hair flowed out from the gentle breeze, she wore a simple
white gown.

Max instantly fell into a trance by staring at her beauty. A moment later she turned her
head and met his hungry eyes with her own. Max took a step toward her, then another
until they were face to face.

He opened his mouth to say something but she placed a finger over his lips silencing
him. Max’s eyes traveled down her body noticing that the dress was see through and
she wore nothing underneath. He saw her lick her lips and he groaned as she reached
for the hem of his shirt and pull it off him.

Her mouth found the tender skin on his neck before bringing it up to meet his own
insatiable one. It was a long and slow kiss, both of them taking their time.

With one sweep of his hand her dress was off. He cupped her breast in his hand, his
thumb grazing over her pebble hard nipple. He bent his head down to capture the other
with his mouth.

He heard her moan and lowered them in the sand as his shorts were removed and he
descended into her wet warmth. He took drawn out and slow strokes, their bodies
rocking together. Her hands ran down his back as his fingers tangled in her hair. Her
lips rubbed over his ear and moved his hips faster.

“Oh Max, Max . . . Max! Max!”

Max opened his eyes. “Li- Tess!” He sat up and realized he was in bed. “What are you
doing her Tess?” He glanced at the clock beside his bed. “It’s 7:30 a.m. on a

“I know. I wanted to go to the zoo with you.”
“The zoo?” Max questioned and felt the painfully hard erection from the dream he just
“Yes, I just got a new video camera I want to use.”
“Oh. Look Tess, there’s something I need to talk to you about.”
“We’ll do it later okay? Get a shower and dress.” She gave him a quick kiss and
walked out of his bedroom.

Max rubbed his hands over his face and groaned as he glanced down at his throbbing
member. Looks like another cold shower.

Max and Tess came in later that afternoon. Tess carried two stuffed animals in one
hand and the camcorder in the other.
“Oh Max, that was so much fun!”
“Yeah, I liked the petting zoo.” Max smiled. When Tess was holding a rabbit, it peed on
her. Then she picked up a gerbil and it did the same thing. He proudly got it all on tape.
Tess frowned and turned on the recorder. “Let me film your new apartment!”
“Tess you really don’t have to.”
“Wave into the camera!”
Max rolled his eyes and waved.
Tess suddenly set the camera down on the table, forgetting to turn it off. “Oh I totally
forgot! I have a hair appointment in two hours! I have to go home and get ready!” She
rushed out the door.

As Tess hurried down the hall, she bumped into Liz.
“Oh hi. It’s Tess right?”
“Yeah. Hi Lyn.”
“It’s Liz actu-“
“Right. Bye.” Tess walked by her.

Liz shook her head and knocked on Max’s door.
Max opened it a moment later. “Hey Liz, come in.”
“Do you want something to drink?”

Liz nodded and walked over to the kitchen. “Hmm . . . got any brandy?”
“Uh yeah. I didn’t take you for being much of a drinker.” He poured her two fingers and
gave her the glass.
“I usually don’t. I need it today though.”
Max poured himself a drink and leaned against the counter. “What happened?”
Liz swallowed back her drink. “I broke up with Sean last night.”
“You did? Because of me?”
“No, it wasn’t just you. I couldn’t see myself with him anymore. To tell you the truth, I
don’t know how we made it this far.”
“How did Sean take it?”
Liz frowned. “Not well.”
“Well in time he’ll come around.”

Liz nodded and walked over to the table in the living room. “What’s this stuff?” She
picked up a stuffed gorilla.
“Tess and I went to the zoo.”
“Oh.” She dropped the animal. “I bet that was fun.”
Max shrugged his shoulders. “Yeah.” He went over to sit on the sofa and Liz followed.
“I tried to break up with her this morning, but I couldn’t seem to get a chance.”
“Why did you want to break up?”
“For a lot of the same reasons you did with Sean. It’s like I think she knows it’s coming
too. She’s trying to spend all of her free time with me.”
“Where’s she now?”
“Hair appointment.”
Max swallowed back the rest of his drink.

Liz gazed at Max and that need for him hit her like a ton of bricks. She sighed and
mumbled this isn’t right.
“I...I should go.”

“I dreamed about you last night.”
Liz turned back to face him. “You did?”
“Yeah.” He scooted closer to her and pushed a piece of hair past her ear. “We were on
the beach. It was deserted, the sun was setting . . . ” He started placing light kisses
over her face.
“Mmm . . . ” Liz leaned forward and her tongue outline the edge of his ear before she
tugged on his earlobe with her teeth. “And what did we do on this beach?”
“Well . . . ” He ran his hand through her hair and wrapped some around his finger. “It
would be easier if I showed you . . . ”
“If that’s what you think is best . . . ”

Her lips met his and ate at them hungrily. Max’s hands slipped under her shirt and
guided up her smooth skin and cupped her breast that fit perfectly in his hand. Liz
moaned out and her tongue embraced his, gently stroking it. Max lifted the rest of her
shirt off and suckled her breasts as he had in the dream.

He dragged his mouth down to her stomach, his tongue swirled around her navel before
dipping into it. Liz bit her bottom lip to keep from crying out and arched her hips.

Max undid her jeans, yanking them down with her panties. “I was woken up before I
could do this.” Placing his hands on her hips, he brought his mouth down on her.
“Oh God . . . oh yes!” Liz exclaimed and started rocking her hips against his mouth.
She tasted so good . . . she was so sweet, so wet, just for him. His tongue darted inside
her, thrusting in and out.
“Uh . . . oh shit!” Liz grabbed a cushion off the couch, biting down and clutching it as
she came.

Max greedily lapped up her juices and then moved back up to her while taking off his
shirt. He grinned at her. “Did you like that?”
“Mmm . . . ” Liz placed her hand behind his head, bringing his mouth to hers. He settled
on top of her and she could feel him hard against her thigh. She rubbed herself on it,
trying to relieve her own ache. Her hands trailed down his sides and together they got
his pants off. She stroked his pulsing flesh in her hand. “Oh . . . I need you. Now . . . ”

With a groan Max slid inside of her. Liz’s hips thrusted up and his mouth attacked hers.
“God . . . ” Max’s mouth dropped down to her ear and migrated to the curve of her neck.
“You feel so good.” He worked his way in and out of her finding a rhythm.

Liz dug her nails into his shoulders as the waves of ecstacy crashed over them.

The video camera stopped 20 minutes later, and the tape rewound.

Max let Liz out of the apartment and leaned against the door after he shut it. He smiled
and sighed in contentment. Liz was amazing. His thoughts were interrupted by the
ringing of the phone.
“Hi hun. It’s Tess.”
“Oh, hey.” Max replied, his good mood fading.
“I was in such a hurry when I left earlier, and I forgot my camera and animals. Can you
bring them over?”
“Sure. I’ll be over in a bit.”
“Great. Bye!”

Max hung up the phone and grabbed the camcorder and her dolls.



“Hey Tess.”
Tess placed a kiss on his cheek and he walked into her apartment.
Max handed her the camera and animals.
“Are you going to stay and watch it with me?”
“I can’t. My parents are visiting tomorrow. I need to get ready. You know, clean and
Tess pouted. “Can’t you just stay for a little?” She undid the first button of his shirt.
“We haven’t played in awhile.” She undid another button and kissed his chest.

Max took a step back. “Tess, I told you I can’t stay tonight.”
“I know . . . ” She took a step toward him and unbuttoned the rest of his shirt.
Max sighed unhappily. “Tess, really . . . ”
When the shirt slid past his shoulders, she stopped. “What’s this?”

Max glanced down and saw the marks on his shoulder. They were from Liz from earlier
in the afternoon. “It’s nothing.”
“What do you mean nothing? That’s a hickey, right there! And those are nail marks!”
“No, they not. I was uh, finishing unpacking and bent down for something by the coffee
table and I banged my shoulder into it. You know how the one edge is kind of jagged.”
“Well, I’m going to leave.” Max buttoned his shirt and walked out the door.

“You didn’t even notice my hair cut!” Tess yelled out into the hallway.
“It looks the same!”

Tess whimpered and walked back into her home. She took the camcorder and played it
on the T.V. She watched the whole day at the zoo, finding out Max got the part where
the animals peed on her. After she watched the part she filmed of Max’s place, she got
up to turn off the T.V. but realized the tape was still running and sat back down. She
saw herself leave and then there was a knock at the door. Max answered it but Tess
could only see their waists. She turned up the volume and listened. “Hey Liz, come in.”

“Liz!” Tess screamed out. Why the hell was she there?

She could only hear what sounded like mumbling for the next few minutes. Then Liz’s
waist came into view. “What’s this stuff?”
“Tess and I went to the zoo.”
“Oh, I bet that was fun.”

Tess heard the muffled noises again and turned up the volume some more. She
couldn’t make much out or see anything. But then she heard a moan.

Tess’s eyes widened but then she heard more, getting even louder.

Monday night Tess barged into Max’s apartment. “Max!”
“Yeah?” He walked out of the kitchen in the middle of eating a sandwich.
“I saw you!”
Max stared at her in utter confusion. “Excuse me?”
“You and that slut Liz!”
Max’s face paled. “What do you mean?”
“My video camera, it was left on and I saw her come in and later I couldn’t see you two,
but I heard moaning and screaming.”

“Oh, well, that’s just because we were, uh . . . watching porn.”
“Porn?” Tess placed her hands on her hips.
“Yeah. I turned the T.V. on and it was just there, so we watched it.”

Max looked at Tess waiting for her reaction.
“That’s all?”
Max nodded rapidly.
“Why did she come over anyway?”
“She was having problems with her boyfriend and she wanted some advice from a guy.”
“Well you shouldn’t have been watching pornography with her.”
“I know, sorry.”

Tess leaned up and kissed him. “Okay, I have to get going.”
Max nodded. “Hey, why don’t you come over here for dinner Monday night?”
She smiled. “I’d love to.” She kissed him again and was out the door.

Max walked into the accounting building he worked at and went to his co-worker and
friend’s office.

“Hey Michael, can I talk to you?”
“Sure. What’s up?” Michael leaned back in his recliner as Max told him about Tess and

“So let me get this straight.” Michael leaned forward. “You had sex with the chick on
counter, the sofa, the shower, almost got it on camera and Tess saw the marks on your
“Yeah, something like that. I don’t know what to do.”
“Say it wasn’t you.”
“All right.” Max paused. “I was thinking of breaking up with Tess tonight. I invited her
over for dinner.”
“I’d keep the two of them.”
“Michael, I can’t do that!”

Michael shrugged his shoulders. “Then tell Tess gently, just make sure she doesn’t find
out about you and the girl next door.”
Max nodded and stood up. “Thanks Michael.”
“No problem.”

That evening the sauce was heating up while the bread bake as Max took his shower.
He stepped out and grabbed a towel wrapping around his waist. Tonight was the night,
after that he and Tess would be over.
He grabbed his toothbrush and smiled.

The door to Max’s apartment was unlocked and Liz walked in. She heard the water
running in the bathroom and went toward it. She saw him standing there, leaning over
the sink in nothing but a towel and her need for him increased even more.

Max jerked his head up to see Liz standing at the doorway. His toothbrush dropped to
the floor, his mouth hanging open. She was wearing a low-cut blouse and a knee length
black skirt. Her long hair was swept up into a French twist.

She took a few steps and leaned over, letting Max see down her shirt and turned off the
faucet. “You shouldn’t leave the water running.”

“Oh . . . yeah . . . ” Max replied his eyes glued to her body.

“I know you’ve never seen me dressed like this before. I just came from work.” She
explained. “But all day, I’ve wanted to see you. I had to see you.” She slipped off her
shoes and took another step toward him, her lips just inches from his own. “I know I
shouldn’t be here, you having a girlfriend and all . . . but I don’t care.” She said while
unbuttoning her shirt. “I want you.” She took the towel off his waist and dropped it to
the floor. “All of you.”

Max had never been more aroused in his life. He forcefully crushed his mouth hard
against hers. His teeth scraped her lip, tongues tangled together.

Her skirt was yanked down and Max fell onto the floor with her while Liz’s hands dug
deep into his hair and eased down on him. She rocked her hips fast as she rode him.
Max reached up and grabbed her breasts, squeezing them.

“Max, yes!” Liz’s head fell back as she cried out.

Max grabbed her hips and rolled them over, taking control. Liz’s legs wrapped around
his hips while her satin walls tightened around him.

“Oh god . . . Liz!” He buried his face in her neck as he went harder.


Max looked up to see Tess standing at the bathroom door looking down at the two.



“Oh shit!” Max exclaimed while scrambling off of Liz and grabbed a towel.

Liz reached over and covered her front with a towel.

“What the hell is this?” Tess yelled.
“I can explain!” Max said.

“You’ve been cheating on me all this time! What I heard on the camera wasn’t porn. It
was you two!”
“Tess, I’m sorry. I didn’t mean for this to happen.”

“I better go.” Liz said, grabbing her clothes. “It’s my fault. I’m sorry Tess.” Liz got up
and left.

Tears spilled down Tess’s face. “How could you do this to me?”
“I didn’t want to hurt you, please know that. But Tess, we were growing apart, you and I
both know it.”
“But if we just work at it!” Tess sobbed.
Max frowned. “I don’t think we can.”

Tess cried harder. “Why didn’t you just tell me about her from the start?”
“I wanted too, but it wasn’t that easy.”
Tess hugged him. “I’ll miss you.”
“I’ll miss you too, but it’s better this way.”
“I know, but it just hurts.”
“I’ll always be your friend Tess.”

The next night Max knocked softly on the door to Liz’s apartment. A moment later she
answered. “Max, what are you doing here?” Liz frowned. “We have to stop this.”
“Actually, I wanted to know if you’d like to see a movie with me tonight.”
“What about Tess?”
“We broke up.”
“I’m sorry I came over last night. That was stupid of me. It’ll never happen again.”
“It’s okay.”

“Oh, well, I don’t think I can go to a mo-“
Max placed a finger over her lips. “We’ll go as friends.”
“Friends?” Liz questioned.

“Yes. I’d like to start over Liz. You know, take things slow.”
Liz looked up into his eyes. “I’d like that.”

“So will you come see a movie with me, as a friend?”
“Yes Max, I would love too.”

Max extended his hand and she placed her smaller one in his and they both smiled.
