Maybe we're meant to lose the ones we love, but I'll fight for you till then- Max's POV

And I really thought that she meant that she loves me. I mean she does mean it but I thought she meant it that way, the way I love her. Of course I love her as a friend- she's my only fucking friend-but I never realized how damn awful the friend zone is. I know what you want and to know that you can't have it at all- sinister.

What's more sinister? The fact that I've been stuck watching Sadie in the arms of Shane, God I hate Shane. After their date Sunday-which repulsively involved a lot of snuggling might I add- they've been spending far too much time together.

Movies, dinners, ice cream, the park and even just lounging at their homes- it's been two and a half weeks and I'm just ready to rip the guy's throat out.

"Hey Max," Sadie greets cheerfully as she walks into the kitchen area, straight to the fridge.

"Hey Sade, sit down." I pat the couch as I turn the volume down a bit.

She sips from her drink before placing back into the fridge and jumping onto the couch next to me, leaning on my shoulder. Now this I like.

"I'm sorry." She looks up at me like a little puppy dog.

My once angry heart is now melting, thanks Sadie.

"It's okay."

Sadie gives me a perplexed look, "So you know what I'm talking about?"

"Yeah- you're apologizing for Shane, for how he just comes over here and you stuff me into the necklace."

"No," she scoffs, "I was apologizing for spending so little time with you. What's wrong with that?"

"Well Sadie," I give her a hard look, "I live here too so I think that it'd be courteous ask me before inviting your boyfriend over."

"Max, it's not like you pay for rent or anything- "

I snap rather maliciously and glare.

"There, all paid for. But it's not like you pay for this place anyway either."

Her jaw drops and she pokes me in the chest, "Max what in the world is wrong with you?"

"What's wrong with me is that I miss you!" I shout a little too loud.

Sadie's face softens up, "Aw Max."

I pout ever so slightly as I look away- damn I feel like a chick.

"Babyyy," Sadie wraps her arms around my neck and I can't help but laugh and warp my arms around her waist.

"You know this is like emasculating me right?

"Yeah, I know." She kisses my jaw and we lay there together.

"So I'm sorry though, really and I'll ask you before inviting Shane over."

"Okay, thanks. So why are you two so close all of a sudden?" I murmur as I stroke her hair.

I feel her shrug, "I don't know I guess he became less nervous after the first date. The movie thing was good because it meant we didn't have to talk but we got used to being around each other. Is there any way that you could just stay here? I mean if you want to."

"Nope, I binded to my master and the necklace- I can't be away from them up to a certain point. Trust me I do not like hearing you and Shane." I scowl at the thought.

"I'm sorry about that too."

"But I guess I have a way to stop that." I say feeling a bit guilty that I'm making her feel guilty.

"Yeah?"

"Yeah, no problem sweetheart. I guess it's just weird, I don't know how friends act." I shrug nonchalantly- wouldn't want to make her worry.

"Awwww," She coos.

"Shuddup." I laugh , "So wanna watch a movie?"

"Sure, want to go with me to the store and pick up some groceries first?"

"Come on Sade," I snap, "It's as easy as that."

"Max, come on."

"Fineee." I groan, making the groceries disappear as I lazily get up.

"You're such a lazy ass, I'm surprised you're not fat."

"That was hurtful; you know how sensitive I am about my weight." I laugh.

"Yeah 'cause I'm like so much skinner than you." She rolls her eyes.

"Shut up, you're gorgeous."

"No I'm not-"

"No, you are. I wouldn't lie to you."

"Well you wouldn't flat out call me ugly." She defends.

"You are in no way ugly. And if it'll make you feel better I'll tell people at the grocery store they're ugly."

"That'd be mean. But do it anyway."

I can't help but smile, "Alright then."

"You're not gonna do it." She changes her mind.

"I will."

"No you won't."

"Just watch me." I challenge.

"Fine then I will."

"Hey Max can you get me that Starbucks thing?" Sadie asks as she looks over the list of things she needs.

"Sure thing." I slowly jog over and I see a rather ugly woman, "Hey," I start.

"H-Hi." She smiles, probably flattered that I'm talking to her.

"You're ugly, you should work on that."

"Max!" I hear Sadie shout, trying to stifle a laugh.

"Coming sweetheart!" I call out as I grab what Sadie asked for and jog away, leaving the woman dumbfounded.

As I place the four pack of Starbucks into the cart Sadie whacks my chest.

"Ow!"

"That was mean, funny, but mean. You probably ruined her self esteem." She scolds.

"But I was right, I did do it." I remind.

"Yes you did, but it was mean."

"Yeah, yeah." I smile as I kiss her cheek quickly, "What else do you need?"

"Ummm cookies, angel hair noodles, tomatoes, avocados, lemons, more cookies and Luna bars…and maybe some other stuff." She shrugs.

"Okay how about I get the past, cookies and Luna bars, what kind?"

"Umm the brownie one."

"Gotcha babe." I smile, kiss her cheek and jog off. I could get used to this.

A/n: Short chapter, but I'm glad I updated. I won't be updating this story regularly, but I hope to finish this story soon- but I doubt that'll happen. Who knows what'll happen once school starts but I've got two to three weeks.

Anyway, let me know what you think!(:
