Purpose - A Max Ride Fan FicFang POVI moved Max off my lap, and she mumbled contently but didn't wake. I watched her for a moment. This was likely the first time she'd ever truly fell asleep. In my arms. I decided not to wake her.Careful to make sure I kept a hand on her, so she remained invisible too, I shuffled forward silently and crouched down in front of Max. I tensed to pounce if something attacked. The footsteps continued to crouch loudly on the underbrush. Whatever was coming wasn't making any effort to hide it.The light coming through the heavy branches was dismal, even for my eyes. I almost immediately regretted my location. Still the footsteps drew closer. I held my breath.Then slowly, into the only other sliver of light from the moon that slipped through the branches, stepped Jeb. He stood there in the light, glancing around as if looking for something. He finally decided to fix his gaze on the ground below his feet. He spoke."Hello Fang."Maybe it was the way he said it. Familiar. Sharp. Clean.
