Max, Michael and Liz has been at the information building for almost two hours. Theyíd come across nothing. It seemed that there hadnít been anyone or anything weird in Grand Forks for years. Max knew it was possible that theyíd hit a dead end.

"I think weíve looked here all we can." He said to Michael.

Michael looked up at him. He has so many feelings going through his body. He was mad at Max. How could he have kissed Maria? How could he have hurt Liz like he did? Yet he felt Max wasnít responsible. "I agree. I think itís time to get out of here."

Max could tell something was bothering Michael. "Michael, whatís wrong?"

"Nothing." He said, standing up. "Letís just go, ok?"

"Sure." Max said, standing up.

Liz stood up too, and grabbed Maxís hand. She wasnít about to give up on him without a fight. Even if that meant sheíd have to fight Maria. They got into the jeep and headed back towards the motel. It was almost 2:00 and Tess would be waiting. As they pulled into the parking lot they could see Tess standing in front. He looked at Michael and Liz , but their minds seemed to be millions of miles away. He knew it had to do with the whole situation that had happened that morning.

"Look guys," Max began. "I donít know what you guys saw, but nothing happened between Maria and I. I didnít see Maria before she and Isabel came to my room together. Besides Liz, would I do that to you? God Liz, you know better than anyone that I love only you. YOU!" Tears had formed in his eyes. "And Michael. Youíre my best friend. Iíd never do anything to hurt you. Man, I know how you feel about Maria. Sheís the only person that youíve let inside you. You love her, man. Maria and I are only friends. Nothing more. So whatever you think happened, it didnít. Believe me."

"So what youíre telling me is that what we saw didnít actually happen?" Michael shot Max an angry stare. "Iím just supposed to believe that Alex, Liz and I all dreamed at the same time that you Maria were kissing."

"I didnít say that." Max said. "Think about it though. Doesnít it seem weird that we hadnít been together any other time except then. And doesnít it seem even weirder that since Maria and I arenít exactly getting along these days, with the possibility of her being my sister and all that weíd be together? I mean, come on. Think about it. Nothing is going on between us."

"Well if it didnít happen, Max, what did we see?" Liz asked.

"I donít know, Liz, I just donít know." He said.
