Don't forget."Just go over and talk to him!" exclaims KC.
"No! Would you just let it go already?" I sigh. "He's talking to some other girl anyway."
"So, she's way prettier than me. And to put the cherry on top, I have a cold today. I feel like a walking snot ball!"
"Puh-lease. Just go over there, stop being a wimp! If he doesn't like you at your worst, then he doesn't deserve you at your best." KC pauses and taps a finger on her chin, thinking. "Well, something like that."
"How'd I know you were going to say that? Well, at least something like it."
"Because you're psychic and it's the only reason why I love you. Now go!" she gives me a rough shove. "The girl he was talking to is walking away."
KC goes to shove me again, but I step out of the way causing her to stumble. I send her a smirk while she glares and shoos me away with her hands. I roll my eyes.
"Fine, fine. I'm going okay?" I take a slow deliberate step forward, just to annoy her.
She waggles her finger at me, "Don't fo
Runaway: part five.Day 5
"You wouldn't want to go the deli down the road, would you?"
I walk through the cave after my late morning 'bath' in search of Max, only to find him propped up against the cave wall, eyes closed, softly snoring. I roll my eyes. I stride towards him and flick his forehead. He grunts and turns his head the other way.
"Max! Wake up!"
He jolts awake causing his forehead to bump against mine. Ouch. I rub my forehead and ask, "Did you not get any sleep last night?"
He gives me a sheepish grin, "Not really."
"Then why do you always wake up and come here so early?!" I exclaim.
"To make sure you're still here. It's not a big deal. Don't get so worked up about it." He shrugs.
"Sorry, I haven't had food yet," I say, blaming my outburst on my lack of food. I give him a small smile and repeat, "You wouldn't want to go the deli down the road, would you?"
"Duh, to get me a sandwich."
"But, you already have food."
"It's getting low," I grumble.
"Why don't yo
Runaway: part four.Day 4
I wake up and instantly feel the large mass of warmth beside me, his arms wrapped around my stomach. I snuggle closer to the person and I sigh, feeling content. I start to replay what happened yesterday in my mind.
I gasped and lunged towards the shadow; throwing my arms around a still chuckling Max.
"Max!" I don't know why, but I started to cry. Being in this cave by myself, even if it has been a few days so far, really is making me emotional. I guess I was just glad to see him. My cries turned into full out sobs.
"Hey. Hey, it's ok," Max cooed in my ear, rubbing his hand in circles on my back.
My cries became softer, and before I knew it, my eyes became dry. Max noticed and went to remove himself from my embrace, but I tightened my arms around him.
"Well, if I knew you missed me so much, I would've come earlier," he laughed. His face turned serious. "You have everyone worried, Ally. Even you're parents."
I scoffed, "Please, my parents don't care. They're away
