    Summary

    She speeds up a little as the guitar solo kicks in, far enough away from town to get away with it. The Midwest roads kick up dust as Benny’s tires roll over them. They shoot past corn fields, narrow woods, abandoned barns. Fleetwood Mac keeps playing, her friends keep yelling, and the soda pop feelings never ceases, thrumming through her, through everyone.

    Max wonders if there will ever be a time when this feeling is impossible; if one day it will go away and she’ll never be able to get it back. It’s the sort of melancholy injection she hates herself for, but it’s there all the same, creeping into the back of her mind.

    Nothing lasts forever.

    Summary

    “I swear, when I find him, I’m gonna kick his ass,” Mike says, stumbling backwards a bit.

     

    A year ago Max would have assumed he’s probably been concussed, and that he only means it because Billy’s hurt El, but Max knows now that Mike wants to fight for her, too. No matter how many arguments they’ve had, over things as huge as a telekinetic girlfriend to the inconsequential nature of Star Wars vs Star Trek, Mike is still standing here, in her corner, at the end of the world.

    Summary

    August 26th, 1985

     

    Mike-

    For the love of God, stop leaving your tuna sandwiches in our locker, it smells like someone died, seriously. I will throw away your lunch box if I see it in here before noon and I'm not kidding. Your mom can send me an invoice.

    -Max

     

    or; Mike and Max are assigned the same locker during their freshman year of high school. It goes about as well as you'd expect. Better, maybe.

    Summary

    “What do you want Wheeler?” 

    Mike’s jittery foot-taps started just as he replied, “Did you eat breakfast?” 

    What?” Max blinked, then glared. “How is that any of your business?” 

    For a moment, she was sure Mike would glare in return, say something fiery or insulting or mocking then they’d both go back to how things were – ignoring each other until interaction was absolutely necessary. 

    But that didn’t happen. 

    Grief can cause distance between close friends and bring closer the distant ones.

    Max should’ve known that Mike Wheeler can’t help but meddle with her business. But as their reluctant friendship blossoms into profound understanding, Max is amazed at how much they have in common and how much this friendship feels like something she can enjoy, instead of something she has to endure.
