Things I have learned from life

1. I'M AN IDIOT. You know it's true.
2. Even when I think I'm being smart, I'm usually not.
3. Life's not all about me. Duh.
4. Sometimes it's just better to shut up.
5. I can agree with something someone says without actually liking them, but I always have to love them.
6. Crushes are stupid, but unavoidable.
7. Goals are good.
8. Procrastination gets me no where.
9. Music solves lots of mental problems.
10. Brothers weren't meant to be enemies.
11. My best friend can be my mother. =)
12. The only opinion that really matters is God's.
13. Bad days happen, but I just have to look at them with a smile to make them better.
14. Some people are just mean, but I have to be nice back.
15. All I can do is tell someone what I believe, I can't make them believe it.
16. Calling someone stupid doesn't make them anymore stupid than me. =P
17. Ironing is very relaxing...
18. The world may be a sad place, but that doesn't mean I have to be sad.
19. Writing is the thing I'm best at. That, and folding laundry.
20. I can dwell on the bad things, but I need to be thankful for that which God has given me.

MR Fanfic (MPOV) Chapter thirty-one

I woke up a while later (not sure how much later) and realized it was starting to get dark out. "Are we there yet?" I heard Jazz ask on from the other side of the car.

"Almost." Chad replied, sounding a little tired. I looked around and saw buildings fly by. Gas stations, hotels, restaurants... My stomach growled as we passed a Bob Evans.

"Can we stop for some food?" I asked.

"We already did." Jessie said, handing me a bag. I looked inside and the thing was full of food. Good smelling food. Unhealthy food, but good smelling food. I pulled out some fries and started eating like there was no tomorrow. (Which with my life, there might not be.) I finished off the fries and unwrapped a burger and started to chomp down on it. It was so good. I was almost afraid to keep looking out the window after seeing Ari, but it was so weird to look at things going by this fast at ground level. I was ready to get out and fly, though...being in cars made me feel all squashed and stuff.

"Are we there yet?" Jazz asked again. I looked over at her and smiled.

"We'll get there when we get there!" Chad said, squeezing the steering wheel tight. He took a deep breath and made a nice right turn.

"Are you just gonna drop us off in Ohio?" I asked, looking around. These guys should have been heading home by now.

"No, we're taking you to the closest hospital, dropping you off, and then leaving." Chad answered. "You're on your own from there." He still sounded kinda agitated, and I assumed Jazz had something to do with that.

"I wish we could stay with you longer, though..." Jessie said as she looked down at her hands. I was almost done eating by this time, I was just finishing off a little apple pie thingy.

"Yeah, it's been kinda cool to hang out with a fan." I said with my mouth full. Jessie smiled at me.

"Really?" She asked, obviously wondering if I was lying.

"Yep." I replied, taking another bite of my apple pie. Jessie's smile widened.

"Okay, NOW we're here." Chad said, pulling into a hospital parking lot. "We'll come in with you guys to see if they're here." He said as he parked the car. We unbuckled our seat belts and got out of the car. I almost ran inside, but I refrained from that.

We got inside and I walked right up to the front desk. "Hi, I'm wondering if you've seen a group of-"

"MAX!" I heard my voice called and spun around to see Angel running at me, her arms out wide.

"Angel!" I yelled, scooping her up in my arms. I hugged her tight and she hugged me back.

"I missed you so much!" She said. I could tell her voice was breaking.

"I missed you too, baby." I whispered to her. Gazzy was hugging me now, too, and the others from the other group were walking towards me. I counted heads and realized Fang, Nudge, and Iggy were missing.

"Where's Fang, Nudge, and Ig?" I asked, looking down at Gazzy.

"Nudge and Fang are in Iggy's room." He replied, not letting go of me.

"We haven't talked to him, so we don't know how he's doing." Angel said, reading my mind. I put her down and Jazz and Jessie walked over.

"Guys, I'd like you to meet Jessie, one of my biggest fans." I said, putting an arm around Jessie's shoulder. She stared at everyone with her mouth hanging open for a minute. Finally, she spoke.

"EEEEEEEEP!!" She squealed and everyone covered their ears. "I'm, like, the luckiest girl EVER!" Jazz smiled as Jessie continued. "I'm sooo happy to meet you guys!" Jessie shook Gazzy's hand then went on to Angel. Angel smiled and Gazzy looked at Jessie like she was insane. Jessie then turned to me, a big smile smacked onto her face. "I wanna meet Fang and Nudge! And Iggy! Pleaaaase Max?" She asked, looking at me with Bambi eyes, much like Angel's. I sighed then smiled.

"I guess that can be my thank you to you." I said, turning around to look at the woman behind the desk. Angel spoke up, though.

"Can they go see Timothy?" She asked. I looked down at her with a "thanks" expression on my face. She smiled.

"If the other two come out." The lady replied. Angel closed her eyes for a moment, and a minute later, Fang and Nudge appeared walking through the double doors on the other side of the room. I ran at Fang and Nudge and hugged the two of them tight. Fang stiffened up a bit but Nudge hugged me tighter than ever.

"Max! I missed you sooo much!" She said, squeezing me tight.

"I missed you guys too." I said, burying my face in her hair. Fang loosened up a bit and gave me a small hug. I smiled a little wider. "Oh, there's someone here who wants to meet you guys." I said after a moment. I stepped to the side and Jessie smiled at them. Fang gave me a confused look and I shrugged. "She's a big fan." I said simply.

"EEEEEP!" Jessie said, running forward. "Hi, I'm Jessie! I'm a huge fan!" She said, looking between the two of them. Fang gave her a look that was kind of like the one Gazzy gave her, but Nudge smiled.

"Nice to meet you." Nudge said, shaking Jessie's hand. Jessie shook her hand then turned to Fang. Her expression suddenly changed from ecstatic to angry. She suddenly smacked Fang on the shoulder and he jumped in surprise. I was surprised too, I'll admit.

"What was that for?" Fang asked, rubbing his shoulder.

"For book four and what you did in Antarctica with Brigid! How could you do that to Max, you jerk?!" Jessie said angrily. I couldn't help but laugh at Fang's bewildered expression. He'd never been smacked by a fangirl before. Jessie then turned to me and smiled again.

"Can I go meet Iggy now?" She asked me.

"As long as you don't hit him..." Fang mumbled, still rubbing his shoulder.

"Sure, let's go." I said. I took a deep breath and Fang walked forward to lead us to Iggy's room. This was the moment of truth... I desperately hoped Iggy was okay...

MR Fanfic (TPPOV) Chapter thirty

Fang and the others ate quickly, stuffing as much food as they could into their faces. "This is sooo goood!" Nudge said through a mouthful of pancakes. Gazzy nodded, stuffing a full pancake into his mouth.

"Gazzy, small bites." Fang mumbled as he chewed a sausage.

"Ahm eatin' fo' Iggy." Gazzy said almost incoherently.

"Fang, have you heard anything from Max?" Angel asked as she took a bite of sausage.

"Yeah, I think she's coming to meet us. She's okay." Fang replied, stabbing another sausage with his fork.

"Great, hopefully she'll be here by the time we're leaving tomorrow. We are leaving tomorrow, right?" Kalie asked. She licked off her fingers and looked at Fang, who shrugged.

"If the doctors say it's okay." He said simply.

"I don't know if I wanna leave that soon. I LOVE THIS FOOD." Nudge said, shoveling more of it into her mouth. "And it's not from a dumpster! Bonus!" Nudge got numerous shushes as she made the last remark. She didn't care, though, she was eating, and that made her happy.

After everyone had eaten until they thought they were going to burst, the group walked back to the waiting room they had been in before. Fang let Gazzy and Angel have his computer to play some games on while he went up to the desk. "Can a couple of us go back and see Ig-Timothy?" Fang asked, almost forgetting Iggy's fake name. The woman behind the counter nodded. Fang motioned for Nudge to come with him and she dashed over.

"He may not be awake, though." The woman warned as Fang and Nudge went back through the doorway. Fang led Nudge down the hallway and to Iggy's room, where Iggy was still laying on the bed.

"Iggy? You awake?" Fang asked, walking up to his bed.

"No." Iggy mumbled. Nudge squealed.

"You are to awake! Yay! How are you feeling?" She asked, dashing over next to him.

"I feel like I got shot." He replied, his eyes closed.

"You did get shot." Fang pointed out.

"I know. It feels like I've been run over by a bus, too." Iggy muttered then sighed. "When do I get to get out of this joint?" He asked, looking up at Fang. His eyes couldn't see Fang, but he liked to look at the person he was talking to.

"Maybe tomorrow if the doctors say it's okay for us to get outta here." Fang replied quickly.

"Where are Max and Jazz?"

"Don't know. They're supposed to be coming to meet us, though." Fang replied. Nudge took one of Iggy's pale hands and squeezed it.

"Don't worry, Iggy, it'll be okay. You're gonna be okay." She said, almost sounding like she was going to cry. Iggy smiled weakly and closed his eyes again.

"Yeah, I know. Thanks, Nudge." He said softly. "Guys, I'm kinda tired...I think I'm gonna go back to sleep. You can stay, sleeping self likes to know someone is taking first watch." Iggy said, cocking a bigger smile. Fang smirked and he and Nudge went to sit down in the chairs in the room.

"You bet, Iggy. Just go to sleep, bud. And heal fast." Fang said and Iggy chuckled. Fang watched as Iggy's body relaxed and he fell asleep. Nudge leaned over and rested her head on Fang's shoulder.

"He will be okay, right?" She whispered.

"Yeah, he'll be fine."

"And Max will be here soon, right?"

"Yeah, she will be." Fang didn't know if the second answer was true or not, but he figured Nudge didn't have mind reading powers, so she wouldn't know the difference. Unless, of course, Max didn't come back...
