As Isabel is getting into the Jeep, she notices the grime look on Max's face. As they begin the drive home they are both silent, deep in their thoughts.
Max still can't get the picture of Liz and Kyle out of his head. Why did he tell her that he believed in her? How can you believe in someone that you can't even trust?
Isabel still didn't understand what had just happened back at the Crashdown. She had been watching Max and Liz. It seemed they were at least trying to get back to some semblance of what they used to have. Max seemed content as Liz laid her head on his shoulder. But once she had asked if the two of them were back together, Max had acted as if her touch had burned him.
There was something going on and she was determined to find out.
"Do you want to tell me exactly what is going on between you and Liz?" She asks.
Max shakes his head. "I just can't talk about it right now." he states. She nods her head in understanding. She knows that when he get like this the best thing to do is leave him alone.
Once they arrive home, Max goes straight into his room and slams the door. As she heads to her room the sounds of The Counting Crows begins wafting through the hall. "Oh yes, I will find out what is going on with you two." she whispers to his closed door.
The next morning.
As Isabel gets dressed the next morning, she recalls the way that Max moped around all Summer after Liz left them at the cave. All he wanted to do after that was lay in bed all day and wallow in self pity. Her parents were so concerned that they had started sending him to counseling sessions. She was not going to go through that again. She was more determined then ever to get some answers.
"Max can I come in?" she asks as she knocks on his door. No response. "Max, Please can I come in?" Still no response. "That's it Max, I am coming in." She states as she opens the door. There she finds him, just as she knew she would. As she sits on the bed, she can see the confusion and pain all over his face. What could Liz Parker have done to cause him so much pain?
Max is laying on his bed staring at picture of Liz. So many questions are running through his head. There just didn't seem to be any answers to these questions. He thought at first she might be hiding something, or maybe it was he hoped she was hiding something. He didn't know anymore. Confusion seemed to be the only thing that he knew these days. The one thing that he wasn't confused about was his love for Liz. He loved her. He had for a very long time, but how could he ever forgive her for betraying him and what they once had. He is pulled from his thoughts as Isabel sits next to him.
"Max, please tell me what happened." she whispers as she takes his hand. She looks into his eyes and can't believe the sadness that is there. Anger begins to build in her. She can't stand to see him in so much pain. "I need" but before she can finish her sentence, he is in her arms sobbing.
At first she couldn't make out his words. He was sobbing so hard that all she heard was mumbling. But when she finally did hear what he said, she wished she hadn't. "She cheated on me" he sobbed.
"CHEATED ON YOU" she screamed. She got up and starting pacing around the room. "Liz would never do that to you, how can you believe such a lie?" she stated as she continued pacing back and forth. There is no way that she would do this to him, she thinks to herself. But what Max told her next, made her stop dead in her tracks.
"I caught her and Kyle in bed together" he says. He proceeds to tell her everything that happened that evening. He told her about how Liz had tried to get him and Tess together and how he had kissed her in Whittaker's office. She watched the tears running down his face as he repeated what she had said to him in his room. Her heart broke as he described seeing them in bed together and the look of guilt written all over her face.
Isabel was livid. She had never felt anger like this before. To say that she wanted to make Liz Parker pay for hurting her Brother was an understatement. Enough is enough she said to herself. She wasn't exactly sure what she was going to do, but this was going to end once and for all.
