It was perfect. We've been together ever since... Katie would do anything for me. And I'm her loyal protector. Our love is... How do I put this? Our love is stronger than words. Or shoes. It's me and Katie. Katie and me. Us against the world. I wouldn't go so far as to call us soul mates, even though any sane person who saw us would. There's just one little problem. Pretty much every day... (Come on, Max.) ...she leaves.

But it never works. Where is she going? What could she possibly be doing? Oh, I miss her so much. Oh my! She's back!
Forgot my phone.
What took so long? Why did you... Oh, come on! Oh!
