"You are such a dork, I don't have an accent, you're the one with the accent Mr. French-Canadian." I couldn't believe we were having an argument over who had the accent in this relationship. "In my ears, you have an accent, I'm sorry if I've offended you and your very thick American accent," I couldn't help but laugh, how we even got on this subject, I have no idea. "Yeah okay, don't you have a flight to catch?" "I do, I will call you when we land. Have fun at your meeting." "Sure thing, have fun on your trip. Kick someones ass for me." She was perfect, absolutely perfect.
I took my usual seat next to Tanger on the flight as Flower and Crosby took the seats across the aisle from us. "Flower, I'm going to ask her. It just makes sense." I didn't look at him, I just leaned my head back and hoped for his support. "Whatever you want to do Maxy, I'll stock my fridge with ice cream and crap now." There's the support I need! Tanger held his finger up, "wait a second, what exactly are you going to ask her?" "I'm going to ask her to move in with me." He took his hand down and redirected his attention back to the magazine in his hands. "Did you tell her about you parents?" Flower asked. "Yeah, no sweat. Didn't even phase her. I don't think she's ever gone through this process though. I don't think she realizes that meeting the parents is a big deal. I haven't introduced a girl to my parents since juniors." I shut off my phone, and prepared myself for take off.
I still had an hour or so before this Kevin guy was to show up so I fiddled around with my lap top. I continued to laugh to myself about the silly argument Max and I had just had about who has an accent. He just didn't understand, he's not in Quebec, so automatically he's the one with the accent not me. It's stupid, silly stupid. I pulled up a few songs I wanted to work with Kevin on and then sat down in the lounge and called Alicia. "I'm meeting his parents at the end of next week." I simply said like it was no big deal, which it wasn't. "Lil, that's huge. I'm sure for Max, this is a big deal." I couldn't help but laugh. "No it's not. How is it a big deal? It wasn't a big deal when I met your parents, or when I met Aaron's parents." "You are in a committed relationship with Max though, it's a big deal. It's good your not nervous I guess, but you need to step back and look at this relationship. That's a serious move on his part, and I'm sure since he was such a playboy, he's probably never introduced a girl to his parents before." Was it really that big of a deal? I guess I've never had to go through this before, so I really didn't know. Until the time came, I wasn't going to treat it like a big deal, I would just be excited.
I heard a commotion downstairs by the entrance to the club and looked down to see Kevin chatting with the owner. Did the guy ever take his sunglasses off? I watched as he made his way up to me. We exchanged smiles and he sat down on the spare stool I had dragged in. "So before we start, I have to know, what's with the cast?" I laughed a bit and looked down at the massive red cast on my leg. "Broke my ankle, hit a patch of ice and landed on it wrong." "Wow, well a girl like you needs to be living in Miami. It's a shame to have a body like yours, only to have it covered it up with winter clothes. Plus, the only ice down there is in drinks." I didn't know what to say, I just hid my blushing cheeks behind the hood of my sweatshirt and woke my laptop up. After playing around with a few of his songs for a little over an hour, he finally pulled his sunglasses off. I looked into his eyes for the first time, and they were just your plain brown eyes, but something was very powerful about them. "Yes, I do have eyes," he laughed snapping me out of my starring contest with him. "I was starting to think you had a really bad lazy eye or something," I smiled and turned my attention back to the music.
It wasn't a long flight to Boston, but it was long enough that I just wanted to crash into my bed when we got to the hotel. As we boarded the bus to take us to the hotel I pulled my phone out and called Lillianah, as promised. It rang a few times and she answered just above a whisper. "Hi Max, I'm really sorry but I have to go. Hope you had a good flight, good luck at your game. I love you." With that the line went dead and I looked down at my phone confused. "What's wrong Max?" Flower asked as I took the seat next to him on the bus. "I am confused about so many things right now." I finally closed my phone and held it tightly in my hand hoping she'd call me back. "What did she say?" I looked at Flower, hoping I'd find the answer somewhere around his face. "First off, she sounded like something was wrong, she was whispering. Second off she said 'I love you'." Flower scrunched his eyebrows together, instantly becoming confused with me. Yet my confused state quickly turned into one of worry. "She would tell me if something was wrong right?" He opened his mouth to say something but nothing came out. Seeing his reaction I quickly called her phone once again. No answer.
