Please RnR! Thanks!
Disclaimer: If I would be writing on Fanfiction dot Net and writing under the tab of Maximum Ride and put a "Disclaimer" need I say the painful word that means I don't own Mr. "tall, dark, and handsome" or the older Pyromaniac? Boo hoo! Max is so lucky! She has boys falling at her feet left and right! Even in fanfic! (of course, in a way, so do i...) Whatever, jut enjoy the story and please review!
And so we open this little scene with my family and me.
Picture my mom's small living room full of six –if you count Total, seven- mutant bird freaks that are hungry, tired, and slightly claustrophobic.
Not a happy scene.
Most of us were currently arguing. Fang and I were the only ones not involved in this argument. We were sitting on the couch trying to watch TV as the channels flipped back and fourth. Fang shot me a bored glance and I raised my eyes. We said nothing but I could tell it was getting on his nerves. And when Fang gets annoyed, someone's doing something he really doesn't like. One of which, is arguing. I tried to be interested as I listened to Iggy, Nudge, Gazzy, Angel and Total argued over what channel to watch.
"Max! Tell Iggy we can't watch Grey's Anatomy! No one watches that show anymore! You can't even see!"
"No, really?" Iggy said with exaggerated sarcasm.
"No, we have to watch the jewelry channel! I just love some of the necklaces they have!"
"Are you kidding? Animal Planet is the best!"
"No, we should watch Glee! I want to see the Lady Gaga episode tonight!"
"How many times have I told you, no one likes the jewelry channel? Let's watch Lost! Now there's a good show!"
"All right you guys!" I said loudly clapping my hands. "We're not watching any of those… Besides, let's watch the two pyromaniac Mythbusters!" I was met with a mixture of moans and whoops. I grabbed the remote, changed it to the Discovery Channel and winked at Gazzy. He grinned and shuffled to get comfortable.
Everything was peaceful until…
"Gazzy, you just elbowed me in the ribs!"
"Did too! See? There's a red spot!"
"Ow! Watch it, Nudge! You just stepped on my foot! And you're wearing your new high heels!"
"Maybe you should've kept your feet in your space and not across the whole floor!"
Fang sighed next to me and crossed his arms.
Unfortunately, everyone heard him.
"If you're bored Fang, maybe you could move so Nudge's big, clunky high heels can take up more room!"
"What's that supposed to mean?" You can't even see how stylish my heels are!"
"Who cares about your heels, Nudge? Just be quiet so we can listen to Mythbusters!"
"No one cares!"
"Don't open your wings here! You're taking up all the room!"
"It's the only way to get some room here!"
"Oh sure, you have a whole cushion! I only get a pillow!"
"All right! Stop arguing!" I shouted. The room immediately went quiet. Normally, I don't shout at the kids, but I'm putting my foot down tonight. "If you guys can't agree on anything or can't go at least five minutes without arguing, leave the room now!" No one moved.
"No one better start yelling and arguing," I said and all gave them the death stare. Some of the younger flock members flinched. I sighed and went back to watching.
Later my mom and Jeb served us all dinner. Mashed potatoes with gravy, orange chicken, chicken parmesan, and Tiramisu. Yay! By the time we were all done, every plate was clean and Total started to lick the plates to get the last bites. We all sighed and leaned back in our chairs, letting our food digest.
Then, my mom jumped up and brought a plastic bag over to the table. She pulled out three movies and set them on the table. I immediately had a sinking feeling.
"Oh! I love Aquamarine! Let's watch it again!"
"No way! We're watching vampires and wolves in New Moon!"
"Everyone hates Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart! Let's watch Stormbreaker! I love spy thrillers!"
"Yeah? Well I'm sick of looking at the dude who everyone thinks looks like Iggy from Stormbreaker! I don't care which one we watch as long as it isn't Stormbreaker," Fang sighed again, only quieter.
"Hey! No arguing! We'll vote okay? You can only vote once. Who wants Aquamarine?" I said. Two hands went up. I raised my eyebrows at Jeb, who shrugged.
"Okay, who wants New Moon?" Gazzy, Total, Nudge and Ella's hands (and paw) shot up.
"Okay, and who wants Stormbreaker?" Fang, Iggy, Mom's and my hand went up. I sighed again.
"Okay, Aquamarine's we vote on Stormbreaker or New Moon. No if, ands, or buts. Okay? Stormbreaker." Everyone's hand shot up except Gazzy, Total, Nudge and Ella's hands shot up. They groaned and slinked towards the couch. Jeb got a really big bowl of popcorn for us and we all settled down to watch Alex Rider in Stormbreaker.
I sighed once again and leaned my head against Fang's shoulder. He tensed up and then relaxed, turning those dark, black eyes on me.
Fang, my right wing man, my best friend, my emo/Goth kid of the flock smiled at me. My heart squeezed and I smiled back.
I snuggled up to him and later, he put his arm around my shoulders.
Half way through the movie, the sun went down casting pretty colors of the sunset across the living room.
Three quarters of the way through the movie, the moon shown through the window and illuminated everyone's faces and I realized. Only Fang and I were awake.
He turned his dark eyes upon me again and whispered in my ear, his breath tickling the shell of my ear.
"I love you, Max." and swooped to my face and kissed me. And I enjoyed it and kissed him back.
"I love you too, Mr. Rock," I whispered when I broke the kiss to get air. He grinned again and both fell asleep, his arms around me and my head lying on his chest.
