Discuss her options? Max knew exactly what she wanted, she also knew she wanted to pursue her studies in VMU, if possible. Her love for the outdoors and adrenaline, her desire to be free and not like a nightingale locked in a cage, sang for her to chose something that makes her heart wander, searching for places of wonder never seen before. Yes, that’s what she wanted, to live the life of a traveller visiting place to place, learning, absorbing knowledge, the opportunity to jump from the highest waterfall, explore the deepest parts of the ocean, walk between the highest trees with the deepest roots. Visit endless prairies and explore every corner of them. Max’s desire was a dream, but after knowing what she knows, she’s certain she can find it all.
She nodded, agreeing with Cate. Max held everyone she cared close to her, but she had little space for those she didn’t care for, it was hard being in that list, but it was possible. The young Spencer watched the redhead carefully, Max’s eyes never left Cate’s expressions and reactions to everything, but eventually Max had to give up, there was nothing that was indicating that Cate wasn’t being honest about anything. “Oh no, no. Where would I even get a child?” Max didn’t want to be a mother so soon, especially when she can’t even take care of herself yet, let alone a child. Max wasn’t the smartest tool in the shed, but she knew the implications of it, and she didn’t want anything to do with that for the time being. What was that woman even thinking? Was she high on something? Had that bracelet drugged her? Had the woman eaten some hallucinogenic mushrooms that day? What the fuck was going on with the staff nowadays?
Was Max lovely? Probably, she was pretty darn cute, but that was all she was. Cate probably said that to everyone, and while Max appreciated the thought of believing that someone who didn’t know her thought that of her was somewhat ridiculous. But if Cate was there to help Max didn’t see a reason to say no, but first, Max needed a job. She had mentioned it to a few people already who were down to help her, especially Sam who worked at a local bakery, she would prefer to rely on Sam, who was her friend than in the woman in front her. “I mean, I know what I want to do when I graduate, that’s an easy question, I want to go to VMU.”
