"wait what? what happened, why is he there?" macy asks, twirling the phone line in between her fingers.

"i-i don't know. he just started spazzing out, it looked like he was having a seizure," mike speaks rapidly out of worry, "just please hurry."

macy anxiously slams the phone back onto the stand, pacing around the room. she notices the darkness looming around her house, desperately wanting to go to the lab to visit will. she wasn't sure if it was safe or not. she bit on her nails until footsteps came into the living room.

"macy what's wrong?" max walks in slowly, standing still in her pajamas ready to go to bed.

did she want to tell max? or was she going to sneak off on her own? she couldn't decide. "macy?"

"everything's fine. it's just-" macy pauses, "will's in the hawkins lab. mike called-"

"wait mike called?" max emphasizes his name in shock, macy nodding frantically so she could finish her explanation. "macy i thought you hated him as much as i did!"

macy rolls her eyes, "max please, that's just you now. there's more to mike than just ignoring us in his party."

"like what?" max answers back in an attitude, "forget it. just go see will."

"fine i will!" macy calls out to max, as she watches her sister march angrily to their bedroom, slamming the door behind her.

macy groans in annoyance and frustration at her sibling's outburst. as much as she was annoyed at the attitude max had given her, macy didn't want to leave max here all alone, and decided she'll go to the hawkins lab in the morning.


"i'm guessing you were too scared to ride your bike by yourself to the lab last night?" max says as she spots macy walking into the kitchen. she was currently stuffing her face with eggo waffles, tons of syrup in her plate.

macy purses her lips, "no. i didn't want to leave you here alone."

"dude i'm not a kid," max whines, "you could've gone to see your lover boy in peace and i'd be fine here."

macy ignores the comment max had made about will being her lover boy. she would never believe this lover boy theory that max has had for the past few weeks.

macy and max both walked out of mr. clarke's room, ready for their lunch break. max smirks in macy's direction as she stares down at her own feet. macy realizes max staring and she sends her a confusing look in her eyes.

"what?" macy chuckles lightly, holding her textbook closer to her chest.

"nothing." max shook her head with a smile spread across her face.

"max!" macy groaned. whenever max never told macy anything, macy had the urge to find out what it was.

"macy!" max mocked jokingly, entering her combo into her locker with macy doing the same for hers.

macy gave up the topic of max smirking at her for no reason for a bit. until a certain group of boys walked by them.

"hey macy," will stated nervously and then quickly turning towards max, "hi max." he says casually.

"hey," macy smiles at will, closing her locker. mike had a smug expression on his face, dustin and lucas smirking at each other for their boy will. "what are you guys up to?"
