Yes, or not - Max Ride Fan FicMAX P.O.V.
I felt Fang put me down on the bed. Poor Fang. I couldn't believe Jeb told him that. I couldn't believe it was actually his purpose. I suddenly felt extremely selfish. But it couldn't be true, could it? Knowing Jeb, he was probably lying through his teeth. It was like he hated Fang for some reason. Why?

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.
