Story: Max's father left his mother while his mother was pregnant with him, so he grew up very close to his mother. Next door was a single mother, widowed by the war and with a new adopted baby girl, so he and Yana became close friends as a result of growing up together. Max was always helping Yana build contraptions in her backyard, and while she didn't help him with his baking as actively, she liked to come over while he was working on something and read to him, or just talk.
Initially he was hurt when she went off to school and didn't write, but he moved on and made new friends - until he received a coded letter from Yana stating that she was trapped somewhere, which opened up all the old wounds. Yana's mother was squirrelly when Max asked about the situation, and his own mother thought the letter was a prank, so he decided he'd go after her himself.
Other info: Max always felt a little badly about not finding Yana very attractive, but once he got her letter he realized how much he'd missed her, and when he saw her again it didn't take long for him to realize that he was in love with her.
