This is for MamaDee52,Gk,and all of my readers from my other stories. Thank you guys so much! You mean a lot to me! More than I can say. I hope you guys like it, and make sure to leave Fb so I know whether it's worth continuing or not.




Chapter 1!



“Max? Max Evans?”

Max turned around and smiled.

“Liz? Is it really you?” He asked.

“Yeah, it is. Oh my God! It’s been what? Four years since we’ve last seen each other?”

“Yeah, it has. Graduation was the last day we ever really spoke. I mean, I went off to a school in California, and you stayed here. How have you been?”

“I’ve been good Max. I mean it was hard at first, losing my best friend, but I got over it.”

“Liz, I’m sorry-” Max began.

“Max, don’t apologize. I mean it just wasn’t meant to be. Maybe our friendship was supposed to end then. I don’t know anymore. I used to spend nights by the phone just thinking you would call, but you never did. Not once.”

“Liz, I never meant to hurt you. It’s just, I had such a crush on you, and moving away was the best thing to do. You were dating Kyle at the time, and I didn’t want to ruin that. I wanted you to be happy. If I were to call you then I would have revealed how I felt, and I didn’t want to make you feel akward.”

“Max, I only started dating Kyle because you rejected me.”

“How did I reject you Liz?”

“God Max! Were you really that blind? Even your not too intelligent best friend Michael could tell I was head over heels in love with you! I would have done anything for you, but you couldn’t pick up the phone and make a simple call. You know what though? That’s in the past and this is the present. I have missed your friendship more than anything else, and I would love it if we could start over.” Liz stated.

“I would love that.” Max replied.

Liz stuck out her hand and said, “Hi, my name is Liz, and I am a college student majoring in English.”

Max took her hand in his and replied, “Hi, my name is Max, and I am a college student as well. I just transferred here from UCLA, and I’m hoping to catch up with a few old friends.”

“Is that so? They must be lucky to have such a great guy return just to see them.”

“Actually Liz, I’d have to say I’ll be the lucky one if they decide they even want to have anything to do with me still.”

“Why Max, I don’t think you’ll have a problem there.” Liz replied as Max’s cell phone rang.

“I really should answer that. I’m sorry.” Max apologized.

“Nothing to be sorry about Max. Actually, I had to get going myself. Since we’re going to the same college now it should be easier to meet up with each other. Come by room 801 later?” Liz asked.

“I wouldn’t miss it for anything. Bye Liz.”

“Bye Max.” She replied as she gave him a hug and left.

“Evans speaking. What’s going on?” Max asked as he finally answered his cell.

“What the hell took you so long?” An angry voice questioned.

“I was catching up with an old friend, but I don’t think it’s any of your business really.”

“The hell it is Max! Did you tell her who you are?”

“Of course not. Look, I’ve been in this business for years. Have some faith in me okay? Besides, I’m the best you’ve got.”

“No argument there, but if anyone finds out who you are, then your cover will be blown. We don’t know who’s on whose side.”

“Look, don’t you think I know that by now?” Max yelled. “I need to go, but before I do I have a job for you to do. I need you to get me a dorm room in the college here in Roswell, and sign me into a few classes while you’re at it.”

“Why the hell should I do that? What did you get yourself into Max?”

“I didn’t get myself into anything. I just told an old friend that I transferred here from UCLA, and that I would meet her later on tonight.”

“Whatever you do Evans, don’t fall in love. If you do then our case is screwed. Do you hear me?”

“Yeah, I hear you. Bye Carlos.” Max hung up the phone and remembered what Carlos told him. ‘Don’t fall in love. If you do then our case is screwed.’ Too late for that, Max thought to himself.


I know this is short, but I wanted to get it out and see what you guys thought

GK,


Okay, yes I do have 4 fics. Chances, Someone To Love, Who Said It Was Easy, and this. But you see, I just now updated Someone To Love. What inspired this fic? Well, I've always liked shows that have to do with what Max is, and then one night I had a dream, and a bunch of ideas came to me. When I woke up, I wrote them down. That's how I get all my ideas actually. From my dreams. That's also where the ideas I give Dee come from.

Okay,

I think I will tell you guys what's going on, so it doesn't get really confusing for ya. My idea for this fic is Max is an under cover agent. When he meets up with his boss he will get in a load of trouble for meeting up with people from his past. Max not telling Liz who he really is though will put her life in danger, and possibly killed. You see, he has people that want him dead, for a reason you will find out later, and they are who he needs to lock up (capture) before anymore harm can be done. They already killed someone that was important to him (hmm...is it someone we know of?) and that too will be told about later on. I hope to have the next chapter out later today.

Okay, this chapter is just bringing them into more of a mess, but trust me, I have a reason for everything. I hope you guys like.


Chapter 2



Liz quickly opened the door to her apartment and ran to the phone. She was in such a hurry that she forgot to close the door on her way in. She dialed Maria’s phone number and hoped she would pick up the phone soon. She really needed someone to talk to.

“Hello?”

“Maria! What took you so long to answer?” Liz questioned.

“Well I’m sorry princess. I was in the restroom. What did you want me to do? Run out with my pants around my ankles just to answer a phone?”

“Yes!”

“Okay, I can tell this is an emergency. What is it?” Maria asked trying to get to the point.

Max walked up to Liz’s door, and noticed it was open. He was going to walk inside, but stopped dead in his tracks when he heard what Liz was saying.

“Maria, Max is back in town and I don’t know what to do. He hurt me so much when he left, and now all of a sudden he comes walking back into my life. I told him we could start over, but I don’t know if I can do that. I’ve had this bottled up inside of me for four years, and I don’t think I can hide what I really feel in front of him.”

“Liz, I hate to do this sweetie, but I have to go. I have to run an errand within the next hour, but I promise to come over after that to talk. Okay? Bye Liz.”

“Bye Maria,” Liz replied before hanging up the phone.

Liz turned around to see Max standing in the doorway.

“Max! How long have you been standing there?” Liz asked shocked.

“Long enough. Can we talk Liz?”

“Sure, come on in.”

Max did and he took a seat next to her on the couch.

“Liz, I know I hurt you so much after graduation, but I never meant to. You have to know that. You were my best friend and moving away hurt me more then you can ever imagine.”

“If I was your best friend then why did you do it Max? Why didn’t you call, or write, or something? Did you get tired of me that quickly?”

A tear slipped down her cheek, and Max reached for it. As he did Liz moved away.

“Just answer the question Max. I can wipe my own tears thank you.”

Max couldn’t deny how much that hurt, but he understood her actions.

“Liz, I could never get tired of you, so please don’t think that. I was young and stupid! Not a day went by where I didn’t think of you. Liz, I loved you so much but it didn’t feel like you cared for me in the same way.”

“Why? Because I didn’t act stupid and moved? Yeah, I thought so.”

Max stood up and wiped his palms across his jeans before speaking.

“I think I’m going to go. It’s clear that you didn’t want to give me a second chance at our friendship, so I think it’d be best. Bye, Liz.”

Max turned to leave when he heard Liz’s voice.

“No!”

Max turned around and saw Liz sitting on the floor with her arms wrapped around her knees, crying.

“So that’s the plan?” She asked. “You just come back into my life so you can leave it again? Do I mean that little to you?”

Max sat beside Liz.

“I don’t get it. You told Maria-”

“I know what I told Maria okay?” Liz yelled. “But can you blame me? I was confused! I am confused! I loved you so much. Hell, I still do. That’s my problem, Max! I still have these feelings for you.”

“As do I, but-”

Before Max could finish his sentence Liz’s lips had descended upon his. Max’s eyes widened and he broke the kiss off. He quickly stood up and looked at everything but Liz.

“Liz, I can’t do this. You don’t know everything, and, and I’m sorry. Bye.” Max said before running out of her room.

More and more tears began to fall down her cheeks before she picked up a glass vase and threw it at the door that Max Evans just walked out of.

Max heard the glass shatter behind him, and he slid against the wall. Good going Evans. He thought to himself. You just hurt the person you love. Again. He cleared his head and walked to his car. He picked up his cell phone and dialed Carlos’s number.

“Yeah?”

“Look, you remember those codes I gave you? So I can talk in public and not worry about who hears me?” Max asked.

“Yeah, I know what you’re talking about,” Carlos replied.

“Well I’m on my way to the office and I have problem number 306, so warn the guys if they give me any shit I will hurt them. Bye.” Max hung up the phone and put it back in his pocket.



GK,

OMG. Okay, you may have given me the nick name Tiger Lily, but I so did not expect that. Lol' Well, I'm about to write (work on) another chapter of Someone To love. Maybe I can finish it now? Lol'

Thanks for all the fb everyone.

P.S - I promise the next chapter will be LOONG!

katmcken,

Max is an undercover agent, but he will come into some problems that will endanger Liz's life. Badly. There will also be a twist with Carlos. His boss.

Woah! I'm back with another chapter, and I guess it's about time to. Sorry you guys. The holiday was catching up to me and I had some shopping to do. But now that that's done I have more time for writing. As long as I don't spend too much time talkting To Gabe and Jessie. This chapter is for Dee who has had more than a tough time at work, and for Jessie because she has been there for me sooo much lately. Sorry Gabe. Since your birthday passed, you haven't been special. J.K. Okay...enough chit-chat. Here is the story. Oh, and for those of you that care. I am still sick. ::tear::


Chapter 3!



“Max, buddy, what’s going on?” Chris asked him as he entered the building.

“What the hell do you want Chris?” Max asked annoyed.

“Is that anyway to treat a friend?”

“You, a friend?” Max asked. “Weren’t you the one that tried to set me up last year? Weren’t you the one that tried to get me fired for you mistake? Yeah, I thought so.”

Chris followed Max into Carlos’s office and shut the door quietly.

“Evans,” Carols said, “What’s the problem?”

“A girl.” Max replied.

“Damn it, Max. Didn’t I tell you not to fall in love?”

“Well it was too late for that. She was someone I cared for back in high school, and I thought my feelings for her had changed. That’s why I moved back here to take that damn case of yours, but I just recently found out I still love her.”

“Wow...” Chris began, “She must be a fine lay to have you this wrapped around her finger.”

Max turned around and punched Chris in the nose, causing blood to come flowing out. Chris quickly covered his nose with his hand, as he cried out in pain.

“Don’t you ever talk about her like that again, or you will have much more than a broken nose.” Max warned.

Max turned back around to Carlos as Chris left the room.

“Okay, Max. That’s fine if you date her, or possibly marry her, but tell me something. Are you ready to watch her die like you did Kathy? The only thing that killed her was what you told her. Because she knew everything about you, it was easier for your enemies to get a hold of her. When she wouldn’t give them the information they wanted, they slit her throat right in front of you. Tell me Max, are you willing to put Liz through that as well? Can you watch the same thing happen to Liz?”

“Then I won’t tell her everything. She doesn’t need to know that I’m an under cover agent. She doesn’t need to know any of that. All she needs to know is that I love her very much.” Max walked out of the office repeating those words all over again, as if he needed to convince himself it was true.

Carlos smiled as Max left the room. He picked up his book and wrote some things down just as the phone rang. He picked it up and a female voice was on the other line.

“Yes, we’re on time. I got Max thinking about Kathy again. I don’t know much about this new girl except that her first name is Liz, and that she’s attending the school here in Roswell. Give me more time and I’ll pry more information out of him. With our luck we’ll be able to use this girl as bait within a month. Gotta go...have work to do. Bye.” Carlos said as he hung up the phone.

**********

Max found himself standing outside of Liz’s room. He opened the door to find the pile of glass still lying there.

“Maria-” Liz said as she walked out of the bathroom. When she realized it was Max she pulled the robe tighter around herself suddenly feeling naked.

“Liz, can we talk?”

“No, Max, we can’t. There is nothing left to talk about.”

“I think there is.”

“I know you did not come back to my home just to argue with me. Now I’d like it if you left.” Liz grabbed Max by the arm when she saw that he was making no effort to leave. She tried to drag him towards the door when she lost hold of his shirt and went crashing to the floor. Liz screamed out in pain, and Max turned to see that she had fallen into the pile of glass. He picked her up and gently set her on the couch.

“Where is your first-aid kit?”

“It’s in the bathroom. Top cabinet.” Liz replied.

Max left and returned within a matter of seconds.

He hoisted he leg and set it on his leg. He grabbed some Peroxide and applied it to a piece of cotton.

“This is going to sting a little bit,” he warned.

Liz’s muscle tensed as the medicine was applied to her cut. A smile plastered itself on her face when Max carefully blew on the cut trying to dry it as much as he could before applying a bandage to it.

“All done.” He announced as he finished.

“Well, don’t admire your work too much Mr. Evans. I’d have to say my bandage craftsmanship is much better.”

“Bandage craftsmanship?” Max asked jokingly.

“Okay, so I make up my own language. Sue me. Besides, you don’t make that good of a doctor.”

“And just what do you mean by that?” Max asked pretending to be hurt.

“Well every doctor I’ve been to has presented me with a sucker when I’ve been a good girl.”

“And what makes you think you’ve been a good girl? I mean, after all, weren’t you the one that was trying to kick me out of here before giving me a chance to explain myself?”

“Hey! That was before I needed medical attention!” Liz joked.

“Oh, I feel so used.”

“Yeah, well what else do we need guys for? We use them, and once we’re done we dispose of them.”

“Well, I wouldn’t mind being used by you.”

“Max!” Liz yelled as she slapped him on the arm.

“What? You can joke around, but when I come back with something witty I get hit? Now how fair is that?”

“Okay, we’re even. Why don’t you tell me why you came back?”

“Well, truth is, I wanted to apologize about earlier. When you went to kiss me, I wanted nothing more than to kiss you back, but I was scared. I was scared of losing you later on down the line. I was scared of hurting you. I love you so much Liz. I always have. I hope you understand that. I just...I needed you to know that.”

“Max, that’s all you had to say. I would have understood. I love you too, and when you just got up and left I thought that maybe you didn’t care about me anymore.”

“Liz, that could never happen! I will always love you. Always.”

He leaned in to kiss her when the door suddenly opened. Liz looked up and her cheeks flushed with embarrassment.

“Max, this is my roommate-”

“Kathy.” Max finished for her. His face flushed with horror.

“How? You-you died! I saw it myself! What the hell is going on here?” Max yelled out.

You guys I am sooo sorry.

GK,

you should already know my grandmother came up a bit early, so I was spending some time with her. Be nice! Lol'

To answer a question some of you already have, no, Kathy is not Maria. Trust me, Maria would NEVER do what Kathy did. That will be explained. But Kathy is just a complete new character. She won't be in it much longer, and she is just someone Max met in Cali.


Sarah

Max did see a throat get slit. Yes...All will be explained! And The thing with Kathy and Liz....They knew about Liz being close to Max before he moved, so they set it up this way. That too will be explained. Promise. I know I am soooo past due for an update, but forgive me. I have been very busy with many things, and then a fight that needed to be solved....I will work on it tonight and tomorrow. I will post something tomorrow whether I like it or not. Lol'


Gabe,

Shall I take that as an insult? Lol' I always thought I was a human. Not a four legged animal. JUST PLAYING.

Jessie,

According to that pic Gabe put out, u need a shirt. Mermaid or no mermaid. Lol' I know how u hate to reveal too much.

This was posted before, but with the problem it was lost. I hope you like it...I was a little unsure.

Thanks to those that have been here with me from the beginning. I love ya!

I am also working on a new fic....completely different from my usual work...I'd like to have a few people read it and tell me how it is so far. If anyone is interested then e-mail me at IcyB45⊕yahoo.com


Chapter 4!



“Max? Max, what’s going on? You’re scaring me.” Liz said trying to calm him down.

“You’re not supposed to be here. You’re supposed to be-”

“Dead?” Max finished before Kathy could say it.

“Max, what are you talking about?” Liz asked still waiting for an answer.

“You were always so open...so trusting. It made my job a lot easier. I was supposed to get in, retrieve information, and leave. But no...you wouldn’t let me leave. This could have been a lot easier for you.”

“I wouldn’t let you leave because your life was in danger! So you played me. I understand that part. What I don’t get is how. I saw them slit your throat. I saw the blood run down your neck and seep through your clothes. When they let go of you your lifeless body fell to the floor. Tell me how you did it.”

“What did you really see Max? Think about it. Think hard. You were so caught up in being angry that you didn’t see every little move that was made. Truth is, we did our job sloppy. If you would have watched closely you would have seen what really happened.”

Images and memories began to fill Max’s mind.

“Kathy!” Max yelled as a dark figure grabbed her from behind. He held a knife to her throat and demanded that Max turn over the virus he stole back from them. Max refused and a single tear fell from Kathy’s eyes as the blade slowly made it’s way from one side of her throat to the other. Blood slid down her neck as she fell to the floor. Lifeless.

“Think about it Max. Wasn‘t there a difference in faces? Remember near her left ear? What was there?” Kathy said interrupting his thoughts.

He focused back to that day. Back to the very moment that has haunted his dreams for the past month. He then noticed a little mole sitting by Kathy’s ear. That wasn’t there before.

“Who was it? Who was it that died?”

“ My twin sister. My parents weren’t that creative. They named me Kathy, and her the longer version of my name, Katherine. I never did like her though, so it all worked out. When you wouldn’t hand the virus back over, I told them to slit my throat...okay, Katherine’s throat, but I thought it would work. Turns out it didn’t. I was hiding in the back room. Then it was pure luck when I found out that little Liz over here was an old friend of yours. I roomed with her hoping that you would return, and guess what? You did! Just tell me where virus is, and everything will be fine.”

“No! I won’t do it. That virus will kill millions of people if it is released. I’d rather you just kill me.”

“That would be fun, but there is just one more thing you’d have to do first. Watch Liz die.” Kathy took a step towards Liz as she said this, but Max beat her to it. He quickly pushed Liz onto the bed, and knocked Kathy over.

“You know, I was hoping it wouldn’t come to this. I liked Liz. Well....as much as you could like a goody-good.”

“You won’t touch her. I bet my life on that. Liz, walk towards the door.” Max ordered.

She did just that, and Kathy jumped trying to catch her. Max grabbed his gun and fired a shot. Kathy fell to the floor as Liz’s scream echoed the room.

“Liz, lets go!” Max yelled as he grabbed her arm and pulled her out of the room. They ran to his jeep, and Liz jumped in the passenger seat. Max started the jeep and left without looking back.

Max placed his hand upon Liz’s and she moved even closer to her side of the door.

“Don’t touch me! What the hell just happened back there? Who are you? How do you know Kathy?”

Max couldn’t deny how much that hurt, but he understood her want for information.

“I’m still the Max Evans you know. It’s just, well, my job is different. I am an undercover agent and Kathy used to be one of my best friends. We were in the force together. Anyways, I retrieved a virus from a few people who planned on releasing it out into the world. They wanted it back, and killed Kathy when I wouldn’t hand it over. Well, little did I know that she had a twin sister, and that is who they killed. As you heard, you were just bait to them. Nothing more.”

Max pulled off to the side of the road.

“If you want to go, then go. I am not going to hold you here against your will. I am so sorry that you got pulled into all of this, I never meant for it to happen.”

Liz could hear the vulnerability in his voice, and it got to her. She knows that he never meant to get her into this, and that he would do anything to get her out of it. Deep inside what she said was just talk. She wasn’t mad at him, just confused. It’s not everyday you get to go through something like that.

She moved over near Max and placed her hand upon his.

Max looked her in the eye, and she spoke.

“Max, I am not mad at you, and I am not going anywhere. You can’t do this by yourself. I know that you never meant to get me into this. Whatever happens, happens...but I will be by your side when it does.”

“Liz, you can’t. Your life will be in danger, and I don’t know what I would do if anything happened to you.”

“Max, that’s sweet, but I am a big girl. I can do what I want. Haven’t you figured that out about me yet? When we were seven and I wanted to climb the tallest tree you told me not to. But what happened? I did it anyway.”

“Yeah, but you also broke your arm doing it.”

“Yeah, but I did it. Life is full of risks. You have to take them or you’ll lead a dull and boring life. I know that you are worth the risk.”

“Liz, this isn’t climbing a small tree, this is a life or death situation. I don’t need to be the reason you get killed.”

“Look Max, you either take me along willingly, or I will tailgate you wherever you go. I hate how guys think they can do something and not get killed, but if a girl tries it then she will.”

Just as Liz spoke a car hit them hard from behind.

Jessie,

You know...you choose the two fics I was going to quit? Lmao' I kind of dug myself into a grave in Chances and Who Ever Said It Was Easy. I guess I will have to dig my way out? I will continue Truth Be Told as well, but Someone to Love is out. I'm done with that one. I don't know where to turn. However, I am going to replace that with one or two new fics I have been working with. I got inspired with new ideas, so I am going to go through with them.

On the subject of beta readers...I will need one per fic for the two new ones coming out. Jessie...Abby...you interested? Let me know. If you guys are then I will use you two when I have them ready.

P.S - I will have an update by Thursday the latest.

Sarah

Abby,

You're a doll. Thanks. I am working on the update as fast as I can. I just don't seem to have enough time. not even to sleep! Today was phase one of the fundraiser I started for Martrel Johnson, a fellow student who needs a kidney transplant. When I left they were still adding the total up, but we already had $1500. Not bad for a school thing first day. And then I got interviewed by our Las Vegas Sun newspaper and the channel 13 news, so I don't have much free time. I will try to have it out for you asap though. I promised so I wont break it!
