Erica blinked & stared out the window for a moment. "Max...you know I had to leave, but I never meant to stay away forever." Max turned to look at her. "I don't want to move on with my life, Max. I want to move forward in it, hand in hand with you & Lucas." She said looking him in the eye. Max stared at her. "Are you sure?" He said looking back at the road; hope rising in his voice. "Didn't you ask me that once?" She laughed. Max's whole body tensed in excitement.
