Chapter 18 – big but bad news
“What? She left you?” I finished shouting “yes” said my dad “just because you were standing up for me?” I shouted “yes” said my dad quietly “that’s bull” said Max suddenly “MAX!!” I said laughing “what? It is” said Max “that’s true” I said “are you okay dad?” I asked sounding serious “yes I’m fine. It was your mother’s choice to leave Tess. It will be okay darling I promise” said my dad “okay dad I love you” I said “I love you too T” said my dad “oh shot, shot, shot” I said “what’s the matter?” asked Max “mum” I said “she was going to help me with the wedding prep” “oh, so there’s no wedding?” asked Max “what? No of course there’s going to be a wedding. Why would you say that?” said my dad “don’t you want your big sister to have a happy ending? Be happy” said my dad “no I don’t want her to get married because she’ll moved away with Mike and I’ll never get to see her so no I don’t want her to get married” said Max and he walked away

*
I stood there not saying anything and my dad was watching me “are you okay sweetheart?” he asked “no not really” I said “but it’s just Max” my dad smiled at me “do you want me to talk to him for you?” asked my dad “no it’s okay dad. It’s just Max. Don’t worry daddy. It will be okay” I said. My dad smiled at me “you’re amazing” said my dad “thank you” I said smiling at my dad “I love you” said my dad “I love you too daddy” I said. He gave me a cuddle and led me to the living room and we sat down
“Dad?” I asked “yes?” asked my dad “would you give me away?” I asked “I’d be delighted to T” said my dad smiling at me. I hugged him

*
“what was all that about?” I asked Max “nothing” said Max not looking at me “Max, it wasn’t nothing, just tell me” I said. Max signed and looked at me “I don’t” he said “don’t?” I asked “I don’t want us to end up like mum and uncle Ben” said Max “that will never happen Maxie” I said “how do you know? You’re not a fortune teller” said Max “because” I said “because why?” asked Max “because you like Mike and you’re invited to the wedding. You’re come to every scan with me and we’re not like mum or uncle Ben. I promise” I said reassuring Max “I do, I love Mike. I think he’s the best and he treats you right. Which makes me happy” said Max “aww Maxie” I said smiling at my brother and gave him a hug “but don’t move away okay?” asked Max “I promise” I said “I’m not going anywhere” I smiled at Max “good” said Max smiling at me “so we’re okay?” he asked looking worried “yeah, of course we are. Why wouldn’t we be okay?” I asked “because of what I said and because I made your life miserable” said Mike “don’t worry” I said smiling “are you sure?” asked Max “yes, you’re my baby brother and your my best friend. I’d be lost without you” I said “T, you’re my big sister and I am really sorry that I made your life miserable. You’re my best friend and I honestly can’t live without you” said Mike smiling “I’m so glad you’re here Maxie. I’ve missed you so much” I said “me too T, it’s not the same without you. It’s a lot quieter at home” said Max laughing “I can be quiet if I want to” I said not really convincing Max. He raised his eyebrows “can you?” asked Max “yeah” I said “no you can’t T” said Max laughing “yeah I can smelly” I said “no you can’t pin head” said Max laughing “I can to” I said not sounding convinced. I signed “no I can’t” Max laughed at me “so what’s mum and dad hiding?” I asked “I still haven’t figured it out yet” said Max “do you know what?” I asked “what T?” Max asked “we should go into dad’s office” I said “why?” Max looking clueless asked “oh Max, work it out” I said

*
I gave Max a couple of minutes to work it out “have you worked it out yet?” I asked signing “no but just tell me” said Max “there might be clues” I said “to what?” asked Max. I rolled my eyes “are you stupid or something?” I asked annoyed “no” said Max “then use your brains and work it out” I said laughing

*
When Max had finally worked it out, we walked to our dad’s office looking out for our dad “so what you are saying is, there might be clues in dad’s office?” asked Max as we walked quietly into dad’s office
Earlier we had made sure that dad wouldn’t be in his office

“hooray” I said smiling “you could of told me” said Max “I did” I said as I started to look around “yeah but without making me think” said Max “then how would you learn?” I asked “I don’t know” said Max “you are welcome” I said as I started to look through my dad’s drawers “T?!” asked Max quickly “yes?” I asked “what are you doing?” asked Max “going through dad’s drawers” I said “why?” asked Max “why what?” I asked “why are you looking through dad’s drawers?” asked Max “sometimes Max, I feel like you’re the big brother” I said laughing “TESSA!!” said Max sounding serious “okay keep your wig on. I’m going through dad’s drawers because there might clues” I said “would you stop?” asked Max sounding angry and he put his hand on top of mine and I stopped going through the drawers “okay big bro” I said laughing and I closed the middle drawer “not funny Tessa” said Max “I love you” I said “I love you too T” said Max “I wish I was the oldest” “what and marry Mike?” I asked laughing “ew no gross” said Max “no I’d wish to be the oldest and take care of you” said Max smiling at me “aww Max, you’ll be a brilliant dad you know” I said smiling at Max “you’ll be a brilliant mum T, what’s her name going to be?” asked Max. I cleared my throat “Paris Gabriella Lorelai Leigh Solis” I said “where did Lorelai come from? I’ve never heard that name” said Max “I got it of my favourite show Gilmore girls” I said proudly “I love it” said Max smiling at me “she’ll be a lucky girl to have you guys as parents” said Max “thank you” I said

*
That afternoon, me and the girls were shopping for my wedding dress and their bridemaids dresses
“what do you think?” I asked coming out of the dressing room “beautiful” said Meg “it suits you T” said Olivia “you look so nice” said Clara “I love it” said Grace “thanks guys” I said “you look stunning” said Lynette “like always” said Susan. I smiled at my friends “thank you guys, you’re too kind” I said

When we got back, we came home with lots and lots of bags and all happy “I can’t wait” I said “it’s going to be a great night” said Olivia “yes indeed” I said putting my bags down “you dervese it T” said Meg. I smiled

*
Meanwhile Mike was trying to find Max when he entered the living room where Max was watching TV with Bree, Gabbi, Ben and Jason “you excited about having Mike as a brother?” asked Gabbi “not really” said Max “really? Well aren’t you nice?” asked Mike coming over. Max turned around “Mike, how long have you been standing there?” asked Max “just long enough to know that I feel the same way and that Tess is in for a challenge” said Mike “I’m sorry” said Max “you’re forgiven” said Mike “I want to ask you something” “go on” said Max “would you be my best man?” asked Mike “at the wedding?” asked Max “well yeah” said Mike “where else?” “I suppose so … yes I would love to” said Max “good” said Mike “Jason, my good man, would you like to play a very important part in my wedding … would you like to be my pageboy” said Mike picking up Jason and putting him on his lap “he probably doesn’t know what a pageboy is. He’s only like 5” said Max “I do, I do know what that is and yes I would love to” said Jason smiling “Great, good boy” said Mike smiling at his little brother
