“What do you mean Max and Liz are spending all their time together?” Maria asked astonished in a call with Kyle as she sat on the veranda and watched the beach in front of her. She was renting the place since her split, and it was good for her blood pressure she found. If she couldn’t see he girls, the water at least gave her some peace. “Are you kidding me?”
“They are going at it like rabbits,” Kyle remarked in the hotel room he, Isabel and Zane were in. Isabel had taken Zane to the pool as they were going to the water park after lunch, and now Kyle stayed behind to call Maria as everyone by now knew what Max and Liz were doing as they were barely being subtle about it. Only did the Parkers and Evans seem to be oblivious about what was going on and most of all incredibly Brian seems to be in the dark.
None of them knew what had gotten into Max and Liz and Maria couldn’t believe it as she talked to Kyle. “They have been holed up in her hotel room all weekend…”
“Are you kidding me,” Maria asked.
“Yeah,” Kyle acknowledged. “I don’t know where this is going but the wedding is still happening Maria which means this won’t end well, and you as her best friend, and therefore you have to do something to stop this…”
“Can’t Isabel or Michael talk some sense into them?” Maria asked.
“Of course, Isabel tried along with Michael, but you know he isn’t one to judge, and Max isn’t one to listen to his sister on any subject related to Liz when Isabel has been down on Liz since high school…” Kyle admitted.
“Right,” Maria muttered as she thought of her own mindless memories with Michael. Who is for her to judge but she was not Liz, and someone who was always on the straight and narrow and while she had made some questionable choices in the past, but now she was burning down the house? Which is very unlike Liz “Okay,” Maria muttered thinking quickly. “I still have at least two weeks left on this film and then I’ll be back, and maybe they will have cooled off by then…”
“I wouldn’t put your hopes or any money on it,” Kyle muttered. “Liz’s wedding day might be the only thing to stop them…”
“Yeah,” Maria admitted as she hung up, and tried to reach Liz on her cellphone but wasn’t getting any answers so she tried the hotel, to be patched through to her room only to find out there was a Do Not Disturb on the phone line and on the door, and she whistled at the mere idea of Liz going there… with Max. Whoa girl she muttered as she wondered what she could do from her home in Los Angeles to pour cold water on Max and Liz and force them to come back to reality because she feared the longer the fever went on, the more the carnage in the end.
As much as she wanted her friend to have who she loved in her bed, still Max was married, and Tess was not going to allow him to leave her now that she had the ring on her finger, prison or no prison.
Maria knew she had to stop it.
But in Liz’s hotel room, she and Max were in no place for reality as she stood at the door and pushed in the room service gurney and closed the door and took the bowl of strawberries and chocolate off the tray and carried it back into the bedroom. Allowing the robe to pool to the floor, she joined a naked Max in bed. “Some good memories” with this she murmured as he started to kiss her shoulders and she started to melt. She had enough common sense left to know this was the last thing she should be doing, but she couldn’t help herself and didn’t want to stop because it felt too good as the seemed both in the same wave length as neither wanted to deal with real life, and just wanted to feel good… together.
“That day was truly memorable” Max murmured of their one good day before everything went topsy turvy with Tess’s arrival. The passion unleashed that day, if only they had followed it and hadn’t restrained, well, it would have prevented so much heartache and she might have the white picket fence today with Max and their children, and not have to watch him with Tess and Zane.
Feeding each other strawberries and chocolate, they fell back under the spell that was covering the room as strawberry juice and melted chocolate fell down between her breasts and he pushed her down and started to lick her completely clean, as she would exchange the favor moments later, and neither wanted to stop as they unleashed on each other, and hours would fly by.
“Can I talk to Brian Douglas?” Maria asked as she was sipping a margarita as she read through her shooting script. “Tell him it’s Maria Deluca, Liz’s best friend, thank you” she smiled as she waited to be connected. “Yes, Brian this is Maria. I know we haven’t met but Liz speaks highly of you, and I was curious if you were stopping by Roswell anytime soon because I think Liz misses you, and yet she has commented how you likely wouldn’t make it until the wedding, and that might be too long because the planning of the wedding has gotten to her” Maria brazenly lied. “It might be nice to see her fiancé for a few days at least.”
“Really,” Maria asked as she smiled. “That actually might be a good idea, because I know she misses you” she lied. “Yeah, she would like that if you offer that to her… Getting out of Roswell for a few days might be just what she will be looking for right now as you know wedding plans has gotten her stressed out and she could use a break,” she lied because she knew the last thing Liz was doing was planning her wedding. “I appreciate this, and I know Liz will too” she sighed. I am doing this to help you Liz
The next morning dawned before they knew it, and they were playing with the maple syrup that had come with the waffles as neither could leave the bed or break the spell as she moved down Max’s body with dozens of kisses that busted his composure, and soon after they were drenching each other each other together in the shower as they continued to kiss, and he backed her towards the back of the shower, and then she placed her legs around his waist as they were soaking wet and they found themselves back on the bed as he entered her and both were blown away and hours later she sat in the tub while Max slept as she tried to talk some sense into herself but found she couldn’t as she knew hours were ticking down before Max had to return to his real life, and back to his son, but she found herself caught up in the smuttiness of it all, as she heard the soft words, “Can I join you?”
“Yes,” she said immediately as she felt in heaven in his arms as they soaked in the tub together. “We should be getting up, didn’t we have plans to go to Cow Patties?” she asked softly.
“Yes, but this feel too good” Max said as he leaned down and kissed her shoulder as she felt falling under the spell of the weekend, as she felt him enter her in ways she never would have imagined a week ago as they made love in the tub, and found themselves in bed as they got caught up, and all plans for the night were lost…
They were lost in each other as they found themselves too entranced with each other, but a sudden burst of their bubble occurred as they laid in bed in each other’s arms’ and there was a knock on the door, and there was there a doorbell ring of her suite, and she knew it was trouble because she knew there was a still a Do Not Disturb still on the room.
“Oh god, who could it be?” Liz muttered as she grabbed the white robe, and left Max in bed and closed the door behind her, and went to the door and was shocked to see her fiancé standing at the front door, right in front of her…
The spell was broken.
And now she had to do some quick thinking…
“I wanted to surprise you,” Brian smiled. “What’s the Do Not Disturb doing on the door?” he asked.
“Well I can say that you did surprised me” Liz muttered as reality came colliding into her fantasy, and she knew instantly that one of her friends had to have organized this little surprise, and it likely had to be Maria to make the bubble burst between her and Max.…
Fuck! she swore under her breath as Brian leaned in and took her into his arms with a giant kiss.
