I PROMISED. :3
Chapter 7: Wal-Mart Fantasies
"Okay, so our first stop is… 'Wal-Mart'!" Max squealed as she ran out of our bus bathroom, she was wearing a pair of skinny jeans and another band t-shirt. She was slipping on her converse, jumping up and down trying to keep her balance.
After she finished putting on her shoes she turned to Iggy:
"Iggy! Get up!" she yelled at Iggy who was sprawled on the floor. She lightly kicked him, when he didn't move she kicked him harder.
"Ow! Max!" he rolled over and glared at her. "Faaaaaaaaannngggggg why didn't you tell her to stop?" he wined and I rolled my eyes.
"Stop what?" Fang mumbled as he exited the bathroom as well, he came in shirtless and I rolled my eyes.
Max turned to look at him and she laughed.
"Someone's getting a little soft now huh?" I watched as she poked his abs.
"You know you like it Max, there's no need to hide it you know…" he replied with a smirk on his face. She blushed a furious red and she let out a nervous laugh.
"Ugh god please put on a shirt bro!" I mumbled and covered my eyes. "I don't need to see Max getting as red as a tomato."
"Cachi! Shut up!" she whined.
She threw herself on the couch beside me and threw her legs on top of my lap.
"If Fang wants to be shirtless, let him be!" she laughed.
I chuckled and threw her legs off me and stood up.
"Wal-Mart's is right down the street! Common let's go!" Max continued to whine and she sprawled herself on the couch and pretended to cry.
Fang came back into the room again, this time with a black shirt on. He grabbed Max by the wrists and pulled her up off the couch.
"Let's go Maxie, before you go and throw a three year old fit." He pulled her off the bus, arguing about unicorns.
Iggy turned to look at me.
"They have something going on don't they?" I asked curiously.
"Yea they do… They've been through a lot together." He responded quietly and slipped on his shoes.
"Like?" I asked, but I already knew the answer.
"They saved each other Cachi, simple as that."
"You're really serious when it comes to them aren't you?"
"I may like to fool around a lot, and I may seem like the type who doesn't give a fuck… but when it comes to love- I go all Kung-Fu Panda." He gave me a serious look.
I let out a small laugh.
"I just want to know everything you know. He's my brother; I have to make up for all these years."
"Yea I get it… I'm like that when I see my sister." He smirked. "She's a real bitch."
"Wow." I laughed.
"Go and get ready, Max is going to flip!" he ran off the bus.
I had a feeling I didn't know the whole story. As I slipped on one of my clean t-shirts, I stopped and looked in the mirror.
Short black hair, green eyes, sharp chin. Did I look like my father?
I wanted to meet him; I wonder where he was… What kind of person he was now. If he loves me…
I've never had a father figure. Even Calypso's dad wasn't a real father to me.
I wonder if Fang is willing to take me to see him.
I want to know who I am…
Because, Fang was doing a real good job hiding who he is.
Walking into Wal-mart with the '500 ways to get kicked out 'list, I ordered Fang, Iggy, and Cachi to grab carts.
"Okay guys, number one is to fill carts and leave them in strategic places." I mumbled looking at the paper. Pushing the cart with one hand I ordered Iggy to follow behind me.
"Go to every isle and fill it with random stuff." I walked over to isle one and threw random bra's, panties, and makeup into my cart. An old woman walked passed me and stared at me.
"Woof." I barked and walked away.
I bumped into Cachi who was over filling his cart.
"It's so heavy!" He grumbled. He looked over at me and smiled.
"I know it says to leave it in 'strategic places'… but can I leave it in the men's bathroom?" He asked excitedly. I wasn't used to him this excited. He's been quiet since yesterday; it was a good feeling to see him smiling and happy.
"Yea sure!" I threw him back a smile, and he threw his fist up in the air and ran off.
I left my cart in isle 4, and ran off. A smile was etched in my face.
Iggy showed up with an electric cart almost running me over,
"How did you…"
"How did I know ridding an electric cart was on the list?" he asked. "Internet!" He sang holding up his cell-phone.
I sat down on his lap and we drove off, looking for Fang and Cachi.
We found them in isle 7, laughing their asses off.
They were reading all of the special occasion cards.
"What does a monkey have to do with a freaking wedding?" Cachi howled and Fang joined.
"Guys! Off to isle 3! We need to set all of the alarms to 10 minute intervals." I said as we passed by.
"I'll race you!" Cachi yelled and ran; Iggy drove the cart trying to catch up with him. Fang jumped up on the back of the cart, we were driving extremely fast almost bumping into passing bystanders. I beeped the horn loudly, but the cart had stopped.
"What the hell!" Iggy screamed. "It died!"
"Fuuuuuuuu-" I mumbled.
Fang took off and ran, trying to catch up with Cachi who was an isle away.
"What do we do?" I asked.
"Leave it here! Let's go Max!" He grabbed my elbow and dragged me away.
We walked into the isle, acting as calm as we possibly could. I already knew that we have attracted some attention. I'm pretty sure that old lady and those people we had almost run over had said something.
I started to change the intervals on the clocks around us, making sure we were in sync.
"Okay, according to my calculations…. The clocks should go off in 8 minutes. Let's go." Fang mumbled.
"We have to start playing football! Where's a football?" I screeched. Iggy ran off and came back with a pink football.
He threw it at me and I threw it at Cachi. Cachi had thrown it to Fang, and we continued to throw it back and forth.
After at least a minute we had gotten bored. I turned to throwing the ball on the floor.
I looked at the list and gasped…
"One of us has to go up to an employee while squeezing our legs together, and practically yelling at him: I need tampons…"
I looked up to face the boys around me.
"Who's going to do it?"
Iggy looked over at me, an evil smirk on his face.
"I will…" he smiled.
"You're kidding right?" Cachi asked.
"Nope I'm serious!" He laughed. "I must get into character first…" he took in a deep breath and closed his eyes.
A few seconds later, his legs were crossed, and he was biting down on his lower lip whining. He ran over to the cashier desk and we followed behind him.
"Excuse me, sir?" he asked a teenage boy. He had platinum blonde hair and brown eyes; he stared at Iggy in confusion. Probably wondering why he was standing like that.
"Uhhhhh… Yea?" he asked, confused.
"I'm having a little problem… I uh… I'm going through my monthly cycle…" he mumbled.
"You're monthly what?" he asked taken aback.
"My monthly cycle!" He whispered.
Blondie stared at him in shock.
"Aren't you a dude?"
"Dude!" Iggy yelled "I need fucking tampons!"
"Stop shiting me! That's not cool!" he yelled back at Iggy.
"I need tampons! I can't… It's…" Iggy whined.
"Maggie!" The boy yelled staring into a room right beside him. "Uh… this boy needs tampons…" he whispered into the room.
"They're in isle 8!" a voice responded from inside the room.
"I know that… he needs one. Just like one. One tampon. To use- like… now."
Silence filled the air, and costumers behind us were staring at Iggy in shock.
The boy walked back towards us, and handed us a tampon in a napkin.
His face was filled with disgust, as he handed it to Iggy.
"Oh thanks man!" Iggy yelled with excitement. He opened up the packet,
"Don't put it on here!" the boy yelled horrified.
Iggy glared at him, and he stuffed the tampon in his nose.
"Ah," he sighed standing up straight. "That's better now."
"You're so fucking stupid." The boy sighed and banged his head on the counter.
"You have no right to call a costumer 'fucking stupid'! I help pay for your paycheck kid!" Iggy yelled back his face becoming red.
Cachi and I slowly backed away from the argument,
"Fang!" I whispered loudly. "Are you coming with us?" he looked over at me and gave me a small smile.
"No, I think I'm going to stay here… I don't want to miss this… I'm going to record it for the blog." He let out a small chuckle and took out his phone, turning back to Iggy and the blond boy.
"Alright Cachi! Let's go!" I grabbed him by the elbow and dragged him over to the woman's clothing department.
"Number 6" I read out loud. "Try on bra's in the fabric department. And number 7 says to try on bra's over the top of your clothes."
I looked up at Cachi, "I guess you do Number 6 and I'll do 7… because… You know."
He nodded his head and grabbed a purple bra.
I grabbed a green one and started putting it on over my shirt. I was trying my best not to laugh my head off,
Cachi took off his shirt and put on the bra. I tried my best to avoid looking at his abs.
I'm a teenage girl, don't blame me.
"Eww, this is so uncomfortable… How do females wear these?" Cachi complained and unclasped the bra, putting his shirt back on.
"It holds it up!" I replied. "I think I'm keeping this on." I smiled.
"Sex and candy!" I could hear Iggy sing loudly. "Sex and Candaaaay!"
"Max!" He yelled passing through our isle, "We just finished 9, 10, and 11!"
"How?" I asked shocked.
"Well, we quickly spilled the tomato juice so that it led to the bathroom. I ran around singing 'Sex and Candy' and Fang just went to go change all of the radios to a polka station."
"Okay so this is how it's going to work… So we can kill the list faster." I whispered. "Cachi and I are getting numbers 12-14. You and Fang can get 15-17… and then we all meet up for number 18."
He nodded his head and looked down on my shirt… he stared at me for a moment and ran off to go find Fang.
"Okay so you go play with the automatic doors," I ordered Cachi. "Meet me in isle 15."
"Okay I got it… What do you have to do?" he asked.
I looked down at the list, "I have to… Walk up to a complete stranger and say 'Hi, I haven't seen you in so long.' And see if they keep up with the conversation."
He smiled at me "Have fun with that!" and he took off running towards the entrance.
While walking towards isle 15 I bumped into a girl with long red hair and green eyes.
"Oh my gosh, I'm so sorry!" I practically yelled.
"No, it's okay" her bubble gum voice responded. I stared at her for a moment, my perfect chance.
"Oh! I can't believe it, is that you? I haven't seen you in so long!" I gushed and she stared at me confused.
"I'm sorry but I don't remember you…" she mumbled confused.
"From Ryan's party?" I asked.
"I ugh…" she thought for a moment.
"You showed me where the bathroom was, I couldn't find it remember? I was so lost."
"Oh I remember!" she let out a small laugh. "What's your name again? I'm sorry, as you can tell you have really bad memory."
"My name is-"
"Max!" Fang yelled from behind the red head.
"Yea?" I yelled back "What's up?"
The girl turned around and stared at Fang.
She went into flirty mode- she stuck out her breasts and stood tall on her heels.
I rolled my eyes in disgust; Fang stared at her in shock.
"Cachi!" the girl squealed. "Is that you? I haven't seen you in so long!"
Fang walked towards us and stood beside me. From behind me, he unclasped the bra I was wearing over my shirt and forced me to take it off.
"I'm sorry but I think that you're mistaking me for someone else…" He mumbled.
"No, I'm pretty sure you're Cachi… why didn't you call me back? I thought we had a good time."
"I'm sorry, but like I said- I'm not the person you're looking for."
"Max! Fang!" I could hear Cachi from the next isle over. "Where are you?" he sang.
"Max!" Iggy yelled from the same isle "The chocolate bunnies are on sale! I know you like chocolate!"
"Fang! I'm pretty sure Max is on sale too! Fifty percent off!" Cachi yelled back teasing us.
Cachi and Iggy walked into our isle laughing their heads off.
"Cachi?" the girl screeched. He stopped dead in his tracks, "Mindy?" his eyes widened.
"Cachi! Why haven't you called me back? I've missed you so much!"
"I… ugh…" he mumbled. "Fuck…" he whispered under his breath.
"Come over here!" she held out her arms wide, trying to engulf him in a hug.
"No thanks!" he yelled and he ran off.
"Bye!" I yelled and grabbed Iggy and Fang by their shirts and ran off.
We ran towards the sport supplies department and ran into Cachi, who was playing with the soccer ball already.
"Okay ready, set go!" he started kicking it towards me and I took off with it, running towards isle 12. Iggy was running after me, trying to take the ball from me.
I ran past an employee,
"No playing inside the store!" He yelled.
"We're just testing it out!" I yelled back and continued running.
Out of nowhere Fang came and intersected the ball from me, taking off with it.
Running after it, I tripped a man by accident- He fell to the ground and started cursing. "I'm so sorry!" I screeched.
I caught up to Fang and tripped him; he fell to the ground with a thud. I tried to kick the ball a further distance so I could get a running start, but Fang had grabbed me by the leg. I fell forwards landing on my elbows.
"Shit!" I yelled in pain and turned on my back.
Cachi had come out of nowhere and took the soccer ball.
"Losers!" he yelled and continued to run. I watched as he continued to run, out of nowhere- Iggy had ran from another isle and into Cachi who fell into one of the cabinets filled with toys.
"Fuck!" he yelled and fell to the ground. Toys began falling on him, and he screamed. "Fuck! The toys fell on my balls!"
Iggy screamed victoriously, "Fuck yea! I'm the winner, you guys are losers! Whoop!"
I felt two cold arms pick me up from the ground.
What the hell…
I turned and looked into the eyes of the security guard.
"I'm sorry, but I'm going to have to take you into the manager's office immediately." He nudged his head towards the other officers who went and grabbed Iggy and Cachi.
Fang was struggling against the man's grip.
"Let me go man, I don't like being handled." Cachi told the guard who was holding him by the collar of his shirt.
Iggy glared at the guard who was restraining both of his arms.
"Do you have any idea who I am? You have no right to restrain me; I will call my lawyers and my manager! They'll make you lose your job in an instant. We'll take you to court. You cannot man-handle a Hollywood actor!" He screeched.
I stood quiet.
We couldn't complete the list. We only got up to what? Number 18… out of 500!
Our first failure on the Bucket list.
I looked over at Fang who was still held by his arms, his face was hanging low.
The guards led us back to the front desk.
Every costumer that we passed by stared at us in shock-suspicious as to why we were being restrained by security guards.
We walked into the manager's office, passing by Blondie who was glaring at us.
"Finally!" He yelled. "That red head was getting on my nerves."
"Its strawberry blonde!" he yelled back.
"Whatever! Do you really think I care?" he yelled back.
"Well, I'm assuming you do since you actually took the time to listen."
"Go suck a dick!"
"Well I can't suck yours now can I? Since you don't have one! Plus I don't go that way… I'm pretty sure your father does though!"
"Quiet!" the manager yelled.
"God, I can never have one day of peace and quiet now can I." she rubbed her temples with her index fingers. Her brown hair was pulled back into a ponytail-She was on the chubby side and had a porcelain baby doll face.
"Plain and simple you four, you're banned from this Wal-Mart." She sighed. "You were disturbing the peace of costumers and also ruined our merchandise. We need to take profile pictures of you, and send it to every Wal-Mart across the country… just so they can watch out for you. If you do this in any other Wal-Mart you will get arrested." She sighed and turned around.
She handed my guard a camera, after each of us taking multiple photos the guard handed the manager back her camera. After we gave her our names, she gave us permission to leave.
Walking out of Wal-Mart, I sighed and sat down in the parking lot. It was dark, almost 8.
"Are you okay?" Fang asked kneeling down beside me, grabbing my face in his large hands.
"Not really." I mumbled. "I'm really tired." Which was entirely true, I was wiped.
He grabbed me by the waist and picked me up bridal style.
"I'll carry you." He mumbled. "All the way to the bus."
"Only the bus?" I asked.
"Wait if you're talking about metaphorically then no. I'll carry you forever."
"You're so sweet when you want to be."
"Yea I know."
I fell asleep in his arms that night. He carried me to the bus and he laid down beside me, never letting my waist go.
*3rd Person P.O.V*
Valencia: Max's mother, was sitting down on the couch flipping through the TV channels.
She was worried about Max…Fang especially- she was worried for their safety. She was hoping that they didn't get involved in anything.
She was home alone.
Marie had gone off to the supermarket to go pick up some groceries. She had wanted to cook a big feast for the both of them… thinking that they both deserved it.
A few moments later the house phone rang in the kitchen. The ring of bells projected through the whole house.
Valencia slowly stood up from the couch, making sure to be careful with her movements. She had been having really bad back problems lately.
Walking into the kitchen, she picked up the black house phone that was sitting lifelessly on the marble counter.
"Hello?" she spoke into the phone.
"Yes hello Valencia? It's Augustina."
"Augustina? Are you okay? You haven't called in at least a year, I was so worried." Valencia babbled into the phone.
"I'm okay… well sort of."
"Nick came to visit me yesterday, along with a friend of his and what seemed to be his girlfriend." She spoke quietly into the phone.
"His girlfriend?" Valencia asked.
"Yes, a pretty girl with blonde hair." She responded.
"That's was your daughter? Then my, she turned out to be gorgeous. She looks like Jeb you know."
"Yes, I know… But anyways what happened."
"He came, and he yelled at me… I knew it was going to happen sometime you know. I knew that he was going to come and find me…"
"But you didn't think it was going to be so soon." Valencia finished. She sighed and sat down on the stool.
"Exactly…" Augustina sighed over the phone line. "I was going to get a divorce with Alex's father later on this year… our marriage isn't so great anymore. I was going to send my kids off to my mothers and make sure he didn't get custody over them!"
"Wait… Don't tell me that he met…" Valencia spoke softly into the phone.
"Yes. He met Cachi."
"How's he taking it? After finally meeting his twin brother…"
"I wouldn't know."
"What do you mean you wouldn't know?"
"He took off with your daughter, Nick, and the other kid who was with them. He was really upset."
"What!" Valencia screeched.
"I don't know, Calypso and Alex called my mother… she took them in for the time being."
"I still don't understand why Cachi would leave!" Valencia yelled.
"Cachi left because Nick was yelling about everything. Even about an accident that occurred, was it really that bad? Your daughter was crying… and Cachi thought I was throwing him away! I would never do that to him, even after all the things that he's been through."
"All the things he's been through drug wise. I know." Valencia sighed.
"I think he took it as a chance for not being shipped off to the military… and to meet his brother… Valencia, Marie knows about Cachi, so please tell her what I told you."
"I will…" Valencia mumbled.
"Do you still talk to Jeb?" Augustina asked.
"Once in a while yes…"
"You know, sometimes I'm so happy that he ended up with you instead of me… he's a good person-"
"He's not a good person Augustina…" Valencia interrupted.
"He tries to be."
"Whatever… Augustina, call me when you hear about anything else alright?"
"I will Valencia…"
Valencia hung up the phone and slammed it against the table.
After staring at the phone, for a minute she picked it up once again- and she dialed a number she swore she would never dial again.
"Hello?" she spoke into the receiver. "Jeb? It's me, Valencia."
"We need to talk about Max."
So how was it? :D
I think I did a good job don't you think? Yep…
Same rules apply guys…
