Max never knew what home was before she left Seattle. But Seattle began to whisper to her in the night, calling her home. Despite the problems she had had their, it was a place she knew. Her good friends, her hang out, even her stupid job and . . . . . Logan. There was a time she could have left Seattle and never looked back. A time being with her sisters and brothers, no matter where, would have been all that mattered. But after six months of cheep hotels and having no place to call home, she craved the comforts of home that Seattle had given her. She missed the building she lived in, the people she knew. Hell, she even missed Normal.

But then there was Jondy, who was missing somebody too, Original Cindy. She never said it, but Max could see it. So as they laid next to each other in some piece of shit hotel eating junk and watching some crappy pre-pulse show called Friends on an 40 year old fuzzy TV and she spilled the words in her head.

“You miss her don’t you,” Max asked Jondy.

“Who?” Jondy replied. Though it was clear she knew exactly who Max was talking about.

“Original Cindy,” Max said.

“Yeah, I do,” Jondy admitted. “At first I thought, it was because she was my first woman. And now, well I don’t know, maybe it is just that.”

“Or maybe it’s more,” Max said.

“Original Cindy’s a free spirit, I don’t want to lock her down.”

“I don’t think my girl would mind being locked down by you,” Max said.

“You miss her too, don’t you?” Jondy said. “You miss the whole place. Maybe it’s time Max.”

“Time for what?”

“To leave. We lived apart for years, it’s no big deal.”

“Why don’t you come with me, we’ll keep it all low key,” Max told her.

“I can’t look at her Max, because I can’t have her and I know it.”

“Don’t sell yourself short,” Max said. “Cindy was pretty hot for you.”

“Yeah, that’s all it was, heat, I have to deal with that.”

Max didn’t want to leave Jondy, but Seattle was calling her and she couldn’t say no. She stuck her hand in her pocket and pulled out Zack’s contact number. For some reason, Zack didn’t fight the girls to much about traveling together. He thought Max had finally left Seattle forever, but she knew she hadn’t. He would have to understand, she had to go back.
