"Oi."

Jennifer stood at the docks, looking down at Max. She had her hands on her hips, dressed in the same red tank top and short denim shorts.

"We need to talk."

Max looked down from his yacht, a glass in his hand that had recently been emptied.

"Come to rub in your victory," Max replied.

Jennifer flipped her hair back.

"You know I'm better than that. Come on, Maxi." She referred to her childhood nickname for him.

"That won't get you far," Max replied, bug begrudgingly lowered the ladder to the yacht and went into the cabin to wait, where he began fixing himself another drink.

Jennifer got on the yacht and looked around. She tugged at a tank top strap. "It's too hot here. Let's go. I have a different place in mind. You have a duty as my manager, by the way."

"Fine, have it your way," Max retorted, and threw his drink back.

He walked out with Jennfer back to the docks.

Jennifer led him along the coastline of the beach. She glanced up at him every now and then and finally stopped at a kiosk.

"Strawberry please." Jennifer asked and glanced at Max. "Is Gold Ribbon still your favorite?"

"You know it is," He said reluctantly.

"What is this, I have a lot of important drinking to do," Max grumbled.

"Geez. Indulge me a little." Jennifer made a face and handed him the ice cream. She then led him to the beach and kicked off her shoes as she walked in the shore.

"Do you remember when we first met? Our mothers were trying to do a business deal...You helped me run lines for a toothpaste commercial." Jennifer recalled, staring out to the ocean.

Max looked at Jennifer, then over the sea. "Do favors for people, and they'll do favors for you. It's what my mother told me. The only way she could explain it that I would understand at least. I never pulled the wings off flies, or tortured animals, but it was always clear that I was different. A lot of people like me end up in prison, or become serial killers. My condition has no cure, but they knew they could teach me to behave according to society's laws if they made logical sense. So I made that the guiding principle of my life. Your notions of helping for its own sake had little meaning to me. I always look at my interactions in terms of how they can benefit me in the long term," Max said.

"To normal people that makes m a monster. To high society that makes me successful. I have to put on a mask of a normal human being every day to conceal my true self. I have to pretend to care, pretend to relate to people, and pretend I think like normal people, and it's tiring. Do you know why I helped you back then? I thought you were pretty, and though I didn't know what that meant at the time, I wanted this pretty girl to owe me a favor, so I put on my normal person mask and walked up to you offering help," Max explained, his voice and cadence telling that he was a fair bit inebriated.

"Years later and I thought I could take off my mask with you. You saw what was underneath and you were repulsed by it."

Jennifer bit her lip. "You know...you gave me a lot back then. You gave me motivation to be successful on my own terms. You gave me my first hug, my first kiss..." She blushed a little. "I was dreaming of a little house with a picket fence for us..."

"I don't know how or when...but things changed." Jen laid her free hand on Max's. "You gave me a lot Max. Had I ever given you anything?"

"My freedom," Max said.

"Because I finally learned that I'd have to make a place for myself where I can take off this suffocating mask. That place isn't with normal people. It's not in the sunny world you walk in. It's with people like my team. In the underworld doing the dirty jobs for people who don't care what kind of people we are," He said touching Jennifer's cheek a bit.

"Somehow you care that you hurt me, and that's something I can never understand," he said taking his hand back and began walking back toward his boat.

"I'm still a talent agent, I just manage a different sort of talent these days. Maybe we'll meet again. Maybe as allies. Maybe as enemies. I may not have won, but I got everything I came for."

"Max wait!!"

Jennifer dropped the ice cream and ran after Max. She didn't know why. It was funny...the two of them. A man without empathy...a woman who felt empathy. She wrapped her arms around him from behind.

"I...I just wanted to say I'll take scripts now. I want to go back to acting. And it's all thanks to you." Jennifer squeezed him gently. "Thank you, Max."

"You're welcome," he said return.

What it meant to him wasn't clear. It wasn't clear what it even COULD mean to him.

"I'll be in touch, Jenny," Max said calling back to that old familiar name he used to call her by.

"You better be Mister Manager! I want scripts!" She called after him.

Jennifer looked down and then looked in the direction Max went in.

I'll always love you, Max. She thought to him. Feeling a sense of closure, Jennifer turned to walk back to the coliseum.
