|Title: in a broken world|
summary: Liz is the slayer.
rating: PG 13
Disclaimer: I don't anything.
I think I've figured out why I haven't written in this journal in nearly two years. You see All I ever wanted was a normal life. But I guess for a girl like me, normal is just too much to ask.
Hey I'm Maria, your waitress what can I get you?
Would you like fries with that?
I hope enjoyed your meal at the crashdown
That comes to 6.50 sir
Would you like a refill ma'am
Have a nice day
I'm Maria, I'll be your waitress. How can I help you.
"I swear if I hear that good damn door chime again today I'm going to stab the person to death with my pen" Alex smirked and patted her on the back.
"It's okay Maria" Alex reassured.
"No it's not" Maria snapped "I've been working for 7 straight hours, Anges was meant to show up 3 hours ago...".
"Chill" Alex ordered "maybe you should take a rest".
"I can't afford too" she said collapsing in the lounge chair "I feel like I'm going insane".
"Well you look like it" Alex replied walking behind her and massaging her shoulders, realizing the tension. She immediately went stiff when the familiar ringing of the door chime sounded, causing her to get up and walk out. In walked Liz.
"Hey Liz" Alex called grabbing her attention.
"Hey" Liz smiled making her way over "this place is pretty packed".
"Your telling me" Maria sighed with exhaust "what are you doing here? I thought you were gonna drop by later".
"Oh yeah I was but I actually um..." Liz paused "I was wondering if I could fill out a job application".
"Screw it" Maria exclaimed "have you down waitressing before?".
"Yeah I used to work in this little coffee shop back in new York" Liz answered.
"Thank god" Maria smiled shoving a uniform into Liz's arms "get changed in the bathroom in the back, you can start work straight away if that's okay with you".
"It's fine with me" Liz smirked walking off into the back room
Bottom line is, even if you see 'em coming, you're not ready for the big moments. No one asks for their life to change, not really. But it does.
Max pulled the jeep into a free space in front of the crashdown and jumped out, followed quickly by Isabelle and Michael. They sat in their usually booth.
"Hey guys" Maria smiled at the three of them "what can I get you?".
"Burgers, cherry cokes and fries all round" Michael said sliding his eyes up and down her body quickly before looking away, Isabelle catching him in the act.
"Okay I'll be back with your drinks in just a minute" Maria said walking off.
"What was that Michael?" Isabelle asked curiously.
"What was what?" Michael asked looking everywhere but at Isabelle or Maria.
"I saw you checking out Maria" she said looking over Max who seemed to be staring off into space again "you know we can't get involved with anyone don't you".
"I know" Michael barked at her "and I don't think you need to worry about me, I mean you practically go out every other week with a guy of your picking don't you".
"Yeah" Isabelle answered "But that's different, I know not to get involved and if I know Maria, she will want to get involved".
"Whatever" Michael said getting up.
"Where are you going?" Max asked Michael, snapping out of his daze.
"To the bathroom" Michael informed "unless you wanna come with me and hold my hand" he growled walking off just as Maria came back to their table with there drinks.
"Your orders will be up in a minute".
"Thanks Maria" Max spoke up taking a sip of his cherry coke.
"Where were you just then?" Isabelle asked her brother curiously.
"What do you mean?" Max asked without looking at Isabelle. Isabelle followed his eyes across the room to the new girl Liz Parker, who had arrived in Roswell a few days ago. Isabelle rolled her eyes and tried to snap her brother of out his daze "Max... Max...".
"What?" Max jumped.
"You can't have her?" She snapped.
"I know" he answered sadly wishing they were more than just lab partners.
So what are we, helpless? Puppets? No. The big moments are gonna come. You can't help that.
"How do you do it" Maria asked sneaking up on Liz.
"Do what?" Liz asked curiously.
"You arrived in town, what about a week ago and you already have Max Evan's eating out of your hand" Liz cocked her eye brow at Maria "if you haven't noticed he has been staring at you ever since he came in".
"My lab partner Max Evan's" Liz giggled shaking her head "You've got it all wrong Maria, were just...".
"Friends" she finished. Liz nodded "Liz your like a princess or something, with your amazing cheek bones and your beautiful hair. If I were a guy I'd wanna jump you too".
"Okay Maria that's disgusting" Liz squealed.
"It's the truth" Maria smirked "just admit to me you have a little thing for him" Liz looked over at Max.
"I admit that he is cute" Liz smiled adorably "But I'm with Kyle".
"Ah yes Kyle Valenti" Maria said wriggling her eye brows "when am I gonna meet this guy you talk so much about".
"Soon I promise" Liz vowed raising a hand to her heart "he said he might come down and spend the weekend with me, he is such a sweety".
"Whatever" Maria said rolling her eyes "Just be carefully... These long distant relationships don't always work out. I mean....".
"I want the money today. NOT tomorrow!!" a beefy man yelled standing up over the man next to him. the man suddenly pulls out a gun from his pocket and there is a struggle for control. the gun goes off and Liz falls to the ground.
It's what you do afterwards that counts. That's when you find out who you are.
"Call an ambulance" Max ordered Maria while he ripped open Liz's uniform exposing her bra and body to him and the world while Isabelle and Michael kept everyone back telling others she is fine she just needs a little air.
"Liz" Max said holding her body in his arms "you have to look at me" Max placed his hands over the bullet wound and looked into Liz's eyes before the images came. slow at first before coming faster and faster until he was literally thrown off her. Liz's eyes fluttered open and Max found his way back to her.
"you're all right" Max reassured checking her over "your okay".
"keys! Now!" Michael called to Isabelle who ran back to their table.
Thinking quickly Max breaks a nearby ketchup bottle and dumps it all over her "You broke a bottle when you fell, spilled ketchup on yourself. Don't say anything please".
"Are you okay?" Maria panicked running to Liz's side.
"I'm fine" Liz said watching Max run out "I'm fine".
I will never look at the stars in the sky the same way again. I'll never look at anything the same way again. What did Max Evans do to me.
what do you think? good, bad... ugly!!!

| THE MORNING AFTER|
Ever since I found out about Max and Michael and Isabel, I've been thinking a lot about secrets.
"there's something I'm meant to be doing" I said looking around at the cell ceiling with curiosity.
"oh sure there is.. miles to go" Faith said slamming her head repeatedly against the wall, blood already seeping out of her head and staining her orange uniform "Little Ms. Muffet counting down from 7-3-0".
"Great.. riddles" I smiled at her sarcastically.
"sorry it's my head. everything's new" she says looking at me before resuming her banging her head against the wall until something cracks and she stops to catch her breath "they're never gonna fix this, are they?".
"what about you?' I asked, turning to her.
"what about me?" she asked harshly "I'm already dead, and as they say one slayer dies another rise's in her place. pretty fucked up that their are two of us huh?" I nodded looking out the window at the blue sky "Your gonna have it rough you know, your not like the others you know, not anymore.. your changed".
"what does that mean?" I asked.
"beats me" she spat, spitting blood on the floor "It's getting close to that time" she says wiping her blood off her lip and looking at it "Your almost ready".
I opened my eyes and looked into Kyle deep blue eyes "what are you doing here?".
"I heard about the little incident in the crashdown.." I cringed and looked away "I just wanted to come down and make sure your okay".
"I'm fine" I sighed, looking back up at him "I'm fine". his fingers traced lines up my arm in efforts to comfort me, but they really weren't. I turned over and his arms crashed around me, pinning my body to his.
"are you sure?" he whispered in my ear.
"yeah" I answered "how did you get past my grandmother?".
"she was asleep" he said kissing the back of my neck "did I ever tell you, you look like an angel when your sleeping?".
"No" I sighed snuggling up against him hoping to get comfortable, no luck "how long have you been watching me?".
"a few hours" he yawned "not long... why?".
"I think you should go hun?" I said turning and kissing him lightly on the lips, before collapsing back on my side "while the sun is still down and my grandmother is still asleep I hope. I can just imagine her face if she catches us" Kyle laughed and looked over at the clock on my bed.
"Ohh Lizzie" I turned my ear towards him "I think it's a lot later than we thought" I growled and looked towards the clock.
"shit I've got school".
That for everyone who has a secret, there's someone else who needs to know what that secret is.
"why were you late?" Maria whispered to me in English as Mrs Randles talked about the poetic writings of some dead poet from the 1700's.
"I slept in" I whispered back.
"please" Maria whispered "In the few weeks I have known you Liz Parker, you have been at least 5 minutes earlier for everything" she paused as Mrs Randles walked back and looked over everyone work "everything".
"well maybe you don't know me as good as you think" I whispered back.
"Can Liz Parker please report to the guidance counsellor office immediately. Liz Parker" I gulped as everyone sat and stared at me, all the while Maria chanted 'bad girl' under her breath. I rolled my eyes and walked out the door, what the hell would the guidance counsellor want with me?
How sometimes secrets keep people from feeling like they belong.
"hello.. is anybody" I large chair swung around "Oh it's you".
"hi Liz" Kathleen Topolsky smiled at her sweetly from across her desk.
"so what's up now?" I asked sitting down in a chair across from her "Some kind of evil mambo jambo boogie happening in the small town of Roswell, that I have to sort out".
"Nothing like that" she smiled knowingly "I realize you've only just arrived in Roswell, but when you're ready I-I think we should start your training again".
"I'm down" I smiled "how about after school".
"Well, I-I-I understand if, if you want a few days to...".
"I'm ready" I interrupted "so guidance counsellor huh?... how's that going for ya?".
"better than being stuck in the library with stuff old books" she exclaimed.
"funny" I said leaning back in my chair "kinda thought you liked it there, with the books".
"ha ha" Kathleen smirked at me "How's Roswell so far?".
"good" I nodded "nothing has jumped out of the cemetery and attacked me yet if that's what you mean".
"Liz I know what happened in the crashdown" she said looking at me.
"you heard about that?" I gulped, suddenly feeling very uncomfortable.
"It's kinda hard not when it's blasted all over the news papers" she said handing my a copy of Roswell news "your just lucky nothing happened to you".
"yeah..." I said looking down at the paper "real lucky".
And now even I, Liz Parker I have something to hide.
"Hi Liz" I turned and looked towards Max who had just caught me coming out of Topolsky's office.
"hey Max" I smiled up at him "what's up?".
"nothing" he said looking away, his face telling me the exact opposite "you know, things are just things are just normal, you know? Completely normal".
"that's great" I smiled, getting a weird tingly feeling in the bottom of my stomach.
"yeah.. great" he said, his feature's kinda saddening "what do you think of Topolsky?".
"I don't know" I said stopping in the hall and looking up to him "I don't think the question is what do I think of Topolsky, the question is what do you think of her? what's going on Max?".
"I don't know" he sighed with frustration "She was just asking all of those questions about Michael. where he was? why wasn't he in class?...".
"I'm sure she was just taking attendance" I said reassuring him "don't worry. No one's suspicious of Michael".
"your probably right" Max said looking at me strangely "I better go".
"yeah me too" I said giving him a little wave "bye".
I suddenly realized that it wasn't my future I was worried about at all. My future was filled with all kinds of promise, if I could just get through my present.
I hope you like my update

"And on your right, once again, the beautiful cemetery tomb stones" Liz said wrapping her arms around herself "I think you've now seen everything there is to see in Roswell new Mexico".
"I don't know" Kyle smirked "I was expecting to see some little green men" Liz swallowed hard and went along with the joke.
"you wouldn't be the first" she replied looking around with a bored expression on her face "so what do you think of the place so far".
"it's... different" I rolled my eyes at him.
"different" I repeated "why don't you just come out and say it Kyle, I know you hate small town life".
"ahh that's quite true but this isn't exactly a small town" he replied "this is an abnormal small town".
"damn straight" I giggled looking around "tonight's been pretty dead, I'm gonna jet. My grandma's probably worried sick about me".
"she didn't seem to be worried all those other nights" Kyle said wrapping his arms around her waist.
"she wasn't.. or so I thought" I smiled up at him "she came out yesterday and told me she was worried about old greasy men gang banging their granddaughter in a dark alley".
"If only she knew" Kyle said leaning forward and kissing me "You better go".
"yes sir" Liz saluted, taking one last look at him "you want me to walk you home".
"nah" he said walking off "my hotels only a little walk away from here".
"cool" Liz smiled "I'll see you tomorrow".
"tomorrow" Kyle nodded, walking off into the darkness. he came to the exit of the cemetery when he heard something break behind him, quickly he turned and looked around cautiously. finding nothing. Suddenly something caught his eye, he walked over and picked up what looked like a skin.
"what the..." the skin degraded and disappeared in the breeze
The future was always so clear to me. A straight path towards my goal. I just never counted on there being any intersections.
"I paid Maria a visit last night" Isabelle announced once Michael and Max had entered the Eraser room with her "I think she's gonna tell the sheriff about us?".
"what did you see?" Michael demanded.
"I saw a lot of things Michael" Isabelle sighed rubbing her head "she screamed for the sheriff to help her, she told him she wanted to tell him about us... that we were repulsive".
"It's was a dream Isabelle" Max protested for Maria's sake "dreams don't mean anything".
"open your eyes Max" Isabelle snapped " you don't know them as well as you think".
"I trust them" Max growled at her.
"you want to trust" Isabelle corrected "Max listen to me... we have to do something".
"something like what Isabelle?" Michael stepped in "kill Maria".
"No" Max said glaring at them "were not gonna kill anyone, I'll have Liz talk to Maria. Maybe she will help straighten things out".
"and what if they don't Max?" Isabelle asked "what will you do then".
"I'm hoping it won't come to that" Max said walking out of the eraser room, with Isabelle and Michael right behind him. Max stopped when he came to the quad and looked around for Liz and Maria, but instead he found Alex.
"Alex" Max called making his way over to the boy.
"Max" Alex said licking his fingers "what can I do for you?".
"I was wondering where Maria and Liz are?' he asked with concern.
"Liz is busy dissecting pig embryo's and Maria left to go speak to the sheriff about something" Alex said chewing on a pork rib "to tell you the truth she's been acting flaky all day".
"thanks" Max said walking off.
"is something up?" Alex asked after them.
"No" Isabelle answered with a sweet smile "everything's fine" she turned and lost her smile. She knew Maria couldn't be trusted "what do we do now Max?".
"We stay calm" he ordered walking into the school.
I guess that's what makes life more interesting. Keeping yourself open, letting new people in, changing your mind.
"Hi Miss Deluca I'm Jim Valenti the new sheriff in Roswell" he said sitting back in his chair "what exactly can I do for you?".
"I don't know" Maria stuttered looking everywhere but at the sheriff "I'm just having a hard time at school".
"well my doors is always open" he said eying Maria from his side of the desk "what are you afraid of Miss Deluca?".
"a lot of things" she snorted.
"You know what I think?" he said getting up and pacing around his office "I think someone is controlling you, controlling you through fear. Am I right? I'm here to help you. You know that, don't you? Then tell me what's frightening you so badly. tell me everything. tell me what you saw the night of the crash festival?".
"what are you talking about?" Maria asked fidgeting with her skirt.
"I've read over the various files Sheriff Harris left behind before he retired, I know everything about that night" he said sitting on his desk in front of Maria "You were in that parking lot to meet whom?".
"Nothing, just headlights" Maria gulped.
"was there someone waiting for you?" the sheriff integrated.
"I don't know" Maria replied "I was unconscious at the time".
"Maria. We both know why we're here, right? So what do you say we stop lying to each other? Okay?" Maria nodded and looked at the sheriff "tell me about Liz Parker".
"No-No this about Isabelle Evans..." Maria shut her mouth and cringed.
"Isabelle Evan's" Valenti repeated "tell me about her?".
"She's a special girl" Maria answered, relaxing a little.
"Why is that?" Valenti asked leaning forward.
"Because of where she's from".
"And where's that?' Valenti asked.
Maria looked around, before her eyes settled on Valenti's "A very nice family. And like you said sheriff, we wouldn't want to destroy any other families in this town, would we?" The sheriff looked away exhausted
"No I wouldn't want to do that" he said walking back behind his desk and sitting down.
"Thanks for talking with me sheriff" Maria said getting up "I feel better".
"I'm glad you do" Maria walked out of the police station with a smile on her face.
"You lied" Isabelle said with relief as soon as Maria came out.
"Like a rug" Maria sighed sitting down beside her on the curve.
"Were you scared?" Isabelle asked eying her.
"That is so the understatement of the year" Maria said pretending to shiver "but I realized what it must be like to be you" Isabelle smiled.
"You look awful".
"'thanks for saving our butts Maria' 'no problem Isabelle'" Maria paused "need a ride home?".
Part of me wants safety, wants to go back to how things were, to a life that I could predict, where I know how life is going to be.
"Hey" I smiled at Max, taking a seat next to him.
"Hey" Max smiled back at me "So how's it going?".
"Good, real good" I replied looking up at him awkwardly "great in fact".
"Good, that's really good" he said losing himself in my eyes "it's perfect".
"Okay" is sighed ducking my stray hair behind my ears "Is everything okay Max?".
"Yeah" he answered looking everywhere but at me "yeah I just wanted to say hi. Uh. Just, uh, stepping out from behind the tree".
"What tree?' I asked, watching him squirm.
"Oh forget it" he smiled, another gorgeous smile "It's been one of those days".
"I know what you mean" I answered not taking my eyes off him "I feel like just curling up into a ball and going to sleep" I said leaning on him.
"Yeah" Max said wrapping his arm around me and pulling me close "this feels good?... Normal almost".
"Yeah.." I breathed on his chest "this feels perfect".
And the other part of me wants to go somewhere else, into the unknown.
I hope ya like my new update

| LEAVING NORMAL|
The tough thing about following your heart is what people forget to mention, that sometimes your heart takes you to places you shouldn't be.
I waved goodbye to Maria and walked into the house "Grandma I'm home" I called taking my jacket off and hanging it on the rack "Grandma?" I called again still getting no answer. I frowned walking into the living room, finding it oddly spotless... Neat freak I thought proceeding into the kitchen. "Grandma" I cried when I found her sprawled out on the kitchen floor.
"Oh my god grandma" I said cling to her arm "Grandma please wake, please" I brushed my hand across her cold skin knowing I had to call somebody. I reached for the phone and dialed 911.
"911 emergency" a woman answered.
"Um.. It's My grandmother.. She's not breathing" I cried into the phone.
"Is she conscious?" The woman asked in a panic.
"No" I cried again.
"I need your address" the woman demanded.
"Huh?" I asked.
"I'm going to send an ambulance over" she explained.
"25..um Barcoo close... You know where that is right. It's off...".
"We know where it was" the woman said in a calm controlled voice "do you know how to administer CPR?".
"N-No.. " I stuttered "I don't remember"
"Okay it's very simple" she explained "tilt your grandmothers head back. Cover her mouth with yours and breath into her mouth".
"Okay" I said putting down the phone "I can do this... I remember this" I breath into her mouth and begin chest compression's.
"One, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight" I bend down and do more compression's "One, two, three" Suddenly Something in grandma Claudia's chest crack startling me "Oh! Oh god".
"I, I think I broke one of her ribs" I cried into the phone "I didn't mean to it just happened".
"Calm down" the woman ordered "take deep breathes and try to stay calm".
"I don't know what to do" I cried sitting down next to her body.
"The paramedics should be on there way, understand" the woman said loudly "miss?".
"She's cold" I hissed.
"The body's cold?" The woman asked.
"Yeah.. Sh-should I warm her up?".
"No" the woman answered immediately "wait for the paramedics".
"When will they be here?" I demanded.
"Soon just hold on".
places that are as scary as they are exciting and as dangerous as they are alluring, and sometimes your heart takes you to places that can never lead to a happy ending.
Liz looked up when she heard the door open and someone call to see if anyone was home. She dropped the phone and raced to the front door and find two tall clean paramedics at her door.
"She's through here" Liz said directing them into the kitchen.
"Oh my god" The first gasped, kneeling down beside her and feeling her wrist area for a pulse while the other set up some equipment "No pulse".
"Was she conscious?" The other asked, looking down at his equipment.
"No" Liz answered, her eyes trained on her grandmothers body.
"I'm bagging her" the other declared.
"Your what?" Liz gasped.
"Were going to intubate her" the other explained, knowing what Liz was thinking "were gonna try and get her breathing again".
"This is your grandmother" I nodded "does she have any history of heart problems or medical problems".
"No" Liz answered sheepishly "no that I know of".
"Lets try CPR" the other said titling her head back while the other got ready to do the compression's. Liz watched hopefully, waiting for her grandmother to choke another breath and magically come back to life.
"She's cold" the first said backing away from the body. She wasn't coming back "call it".
"I'm sorry" the paramedic frowned.
"Wh-what do I do now?" Liz asked looking at him for answers.
"I'm sorry I have to tell you this but... Your mothers dead" Liz looked down at the floor with sudden interest "It looks like she did die a good while before you found her. There's .. nothing you could have done".
"W-what?" Liz cried without tears.
"I'm guessing it must have been a aneurysm or some clotting. Some complication from surgery. She probably felt... "Liz fazed out and stared at her shoes "very little pain. I'm gonna call it in. The coroner's office will come by and take her in, and they'll determine the cause of death conclusively".
"Okay" the paramedic said rushing back into the house "we gotta fly.. We have a 206 on Bibbulmun" he nodded.
"Do you need anything, is there someone you can call?" He asked with concern, Liz didn't respond "I'm sorry" he said before walking off. Liz fell to the ground in tears as soon as he left.
And that's not even the difficult part. The difficult part is when you follow your heart, you leave normal, you go into the unknown.
Max groaned when he heard a tap on his window "Michael I told you already.." He opened his windows to find none other than Liz Parker "Liz?" He gasped helping her in "what's wrong? What happened?".
"Can I stay here tonight?' She pleaded.
"Sure" Max said a little nervous that she was actually in his room for the first time. Liz went over and sat on his bed, laying her head on his pillow "do you wanna talk about...".
"Shhh" Liz interrupted, pulling him to her side "just hold me" Max wrapped his arms around her with no objections.
And once you do, you can never go back.

It's funny how the world changes sometimes, how the streets you walked your entire life seem darker, colder. How the silence isn't so quiet anymore. How eyes you've barely even noticed now look at nothing but you. How the walk home every night is no longer routine, but a victory. And then you begin to wonder... maybe it's not the world that's changed. Maybe it's just you. And then, suddenly... you begin to wonder all over again.
Max Evan's saved my life, but what if I was really meant to die that day. what if that was my destiny and he changed that, what would that mean? would I get another destiny? would I change? If so what would I become, a bigger mess than I already am. I'm the one girl in all the world chosen to stop vampires and the force's of evil from taking over the earth. being who I am is the most loneliest job in the world. Not to mention my parents dumped me on my grandmothers door step when times got too rough for them to handle, and now she is dead.
Maybe death is my destiny? maybe that was a consequence to Max bring me back. that everyone around me has to die or suffer.
I woke up in Max's arms this morning, and I felt good. I felt like everything in the world had just faded into the back ground and only me and him existed, but then I remember everything. I shouldn't have left, I should have told him what was happening I should have told him about my grandma dying. I should have told him a lot of things.
I've missed a few days. But in my absence I've been thinking about some things, about life before Max Evans saved me, of how I used to pray for something to happen, something to just break the routine, you know, of school and work... something that would make a small life feel bigger. And ever since I got my wish, I realized one thing... that the bigger your world gets, the bigger your problems get, too.
especially for a freak like me..... You know what I really don't know how I get to be where I am. 285 south. I'm sitting on my grandma's mini in the middle of the freaking desert, thinking about how destiny must hate me. destiny can go fuck it's self in the ass for all I care.
"hey" Faith called to me, snapping me out of my daze "there waiting for you".
"who are?" I asked jumping off the car bonnet and patting the lion cub who had appeared at my feet "what do they want?".
"what do I look like and information booth" she said pointing out towards a large tent, that if my memory serves me correct wasn't there before "go... there expecting you" the lion cub walked off, leading me across the desert towards the tent. The cub laid down at the entrance of the tent, while I entered it confidently, I open my mouth to speak.
"Don't worry" someone interrupts "He knows you're here. No talking right now. Just follow the chant". I took part in the ritual, drinking water from a bowl that was passed around the small circle to each person in the tent. An elderly man across from me threw something into the fire, causing the fire to crackle with life. the smoke from the fire swam around the room like a serpent, before tracing a symbol right in front of her very eyes. A bizarre symbol. "it's to intense in here" I moaned, wiping the sweat from my forehead "what is this?".
"hush child..." My grandmother called beside me her eyes trained on the fire. I looked around the circle, I knew them all.
"Grandma" I cried "what's... what's happening to me?".
"the sweat" she answered "Honey bear? there's something you wanna say".
"yes" I cried, my voice sounding breathy and desperate "Grandma, I guess the thing I wanted to say to you more than anything else is just how much you mean to me, and somehow you just always manage to make me feel really special, and I, I just don't know what I'm going to do without you".
"You're going to do just fine" she reassured me "and I want to tell you something. When I look at you so excited about life, I see myself, and that's a gift, a gift that I will take with me, that I'll always treasure. Promise me one thing, that you'll follow your heart wherever it takes you. Trust it. Will you do that?".
I don't know if anything of it was real, or just my complete and utter imagination. But it felt real and intense. I promised her in my heart I would follow my heart, but I don't know if I can keep that promise when my heart feels so broken.

| 285 south |
"Everybody has their secrets. There isn't a person alive today who's what they appear to be. Exposing these secrets is the job of the... historian. Even the most normal of us has extraordinary qualities just waiting to be uncovered".
Listening to Mr. Sommers, I realized how strange it must be for Max, Isabel, and Michael not to even know their own history. And how scary it would be if anyone discovered it before they did.
"Liz Parker" I looked up, and found myself staring into a pair of the most amazing blue eyes I had ever seen "I'm Deputy Pierce, from the sheriff's department".
"hi" I stuttered shaking his hand "what is this about?".
"Oh I just wanted to ask you a few questions, if that's okay?" he asked looking down at some hand written notes "are you aware that you have been missing for the last 48 hours".
"yes" I answered, crossing my arms over my chest "I left town for a while.. I just had to..".
"get away" he finished "I know how you must feel, my father just passed away a few months back".
"I'm so sorry" I sympathised.
"it's okay" he said looking back down at his notes "Are you aware that your mother and father filed a missing person's report, yesterday afternoon and have been looking for ever since".
"No" I shook my head "I thought they were in New York".
"Well we told them about your grandmother dying and they came as soon as they heard" he answered "when they found out you were missing, they panicked and filed a missing person's report. Sounds like they really care about you".
"yeah" I rolled my eyes "they really care" I replied sarcastically "is this over because I really want to go".
"don't you want to come down to the police station to meet them...".
"no" I interrupted "we done? I have to go see my guidance counsellor".
"sure" I turned on my heel and walked, god I hate my parents.
I don't know why my Parents suddenly care about what happens to me, it's not like they grew a heart over night. Knowing them their probably hear to claim whatever grandma left them in her will, good I hope they get nothing.
"Liz" I looked up to see Max, in his shining armour "hey, I was hoping I'd see you at school".
"great" I replied looking down at my book. it's a biography of the life of Madame Currie.
"so how are you?" he asks siting down next to me.
"Kinda of sick and tired of people asking me how I am" I replied harshly, Max turned from me and looked out at the quad "Not to be rude, but what do you want Max?".
"I was wondering if we could talk about you sleeping over my house that night" he said in soft whisper, almost like he didn't want anyone to know "I need to know where we stand".
"I like you" I answered, closing my book and turning to him "but don't think that night was anything but me needing someone, okay".
"okay" Max answered, looking deep into my eyes as though he were searching for something "so when you say like, is that more than a friend".
"I don't want to talk about this right now" I said putting my hand to my head.
"I'm sorry..." he stuttered, looking down at his hoses "I don't wanna rush you" he pauses "so how was your meeting with Topolsky?".
"what is that meant to mean?" I asked.
"nothing.." he stutters yet again "I was just wondering...".
"Max" I said putting my book away entirely "Whenever we talk you always have an ulterior motive to speak to me. don't you just wish that we could get past that and get to what is really bugging you, because today I don't feel like dancing around the subject".
"are you feeling okay?" Max asked with concern.
"peachy" I smiled, grabbing my bag "considering my parents filed a missing person's report for me yesterday, my grandmother just died and the boy that I think I'm in love with is an alien".
"you love me" Max repeated.
"I don't know" I cried, brushing my hair out of my eyes "whenever I think about you, see you.. I get butterflies and it's the most amazing, sickening feeling Max. and It scares me because I've never felt like this before in my entirely life".
"I know Liz.." Max said getting up, and holding my face in his hands "because I feel it too".
"It can never work can it" I said backing away from him.
"were to different...".
"don't say that" I interrupted "you know what don't saying anything, this.." I said gesturing to myself and him "whatever it is... it's over. the truth is we'd be better off without each other. right?".
"right?" I persisted.
"right" he answered reluctantly.
"then let's just save each other the heart ache and say goodbye" I turned on my heel for the second time today and walked, this time out of the school.
I didn't want to walk away... but it was for the best. he was an alien from outer space sent to earth for god knows what and me. I'm a slayer, death follows me every where... were just to different.
"Welcome to the crash...." I stopped mid sentence when I noticed my customer was none other than Isabelle, and the look she was giving me right now could chill you to the bone "what do you want?".
"I want to talk" she says gesturing to the chair across from here.
"If this is about Max I haven't....".
"Just listen" Isabelle interrupted, I sat down across from her and looked at her "It's your fault that my brother has locked himself in his room listening to Counting Crows repeatedly. I just wanna know what you said to him".
"I told him there can't be anything between us because were to different" I answered reluctantly, she eyed me for a second.
"That's it" she spat, looking around "Are you sure you didn't say anything else Liz?".
"What is it to you?" I asked, getting up "what did you decide to play big sister today".
"Your really campaigning for bitch of the year aren't you Liz" Isabelle screeched, getting up "I'm gonna give you some advice. Get over it".
"Excuse me" I asked.
"Get - over - it" she said slower "because if you don't your gonna find yourself alone".
"You know what Isabelle I think it's time you start minding your own business".
"Fine" Isabelle said picking up her things "but don't say I didn't warn you" she said before turning and walking out of the crashdown.
I keep telling myself this is for the best.... Then why do I feel like shit
I sighed and turned to walk back into the employee lounge "Lizzy" I stopped and turned to see who matched the familiar voice.
"Mom" I gasped.

| BLOOD RIVER |
"What are you doing here?" I barked looking around for reports or local news vans.
"Can't I be concerned for my only daughter" Nancy Parker said pulling me in close and hugging me only pushing me away just as quick "what kind of blush are you using darling?".
"I don't wear make up" I declared, glaring at her "where's dad?".
"He's busy sweety" she said looking around at the cafe and at my uniform "isn't this place cute".
"Yeah real cute..." I rushed "why are you really here".
"Well..." She said opening her mouth to explain when Amy Deluca, Maria's mom literally screamed in my ear. I swear I heard my ear drums shatter into a thousand pieces.
"Your Nancy Parker" she yelped, running up to my mother "I'm such I big fan of yours".
"Really" my mother gloated "that's great".
"Would you sign something for me" Amy pleaded.
"Of course" Nancy replied as Amy run into the employee lounge to grab something "Coming to Roswell wasn't such a bad idea after all".
"Mom" I said grabbing her arm, tightly.
"Don't address me in public Lizzy" she said brushing me off her arm like I was filth "and don't look at me that way... People expect the best of us" she smiled.
"Story of my life" I said to myself.
"Here" Amy said handing my mother a big green blow up alien and a pen "it's the only thing I could find".
"That's okay with me" she smiled, signing the aliens head and handing it back to Amy "do you work here?".
"I own the crashdown" she said proudly, her eyes suddenly seeking me out "I knew Liz's last name was Parker, but I didn't know she was your daughter. You are so lucky Liz" she pauses "to have an actress for a mother and a director for a father".
"You try living with them" I growled angrily "can I please speak with you in private".
"Sure sweet" she said following me into the back room of the crashdown.
"finish telling me why your here?" I ordered.
"Well our lawyer wanted us to come down because Claudia mentioned your father in the will" she sighed, looking down at her nails.
"I knew that's the only reason you were here" I erupted "that's what I get for thinking for a fraction of a second you might be human".
"Don't talk to your mother like that" Nancy snapped at me.
"When have you ever been my mother" I growled, grabbing my jacket and taking off.
"You come back here" she demanded, I ignored her and pushed open the back door "don't turn your back to me you little bitch, I gave you everything and in return your ruined my life. I should have had an abortion like I was planning too, if your stupid father hadn't stepped in" I ran out crying.
My parents never cared for me, I was just a piece of eye candy for the reporters to eat up and spit back out.
".. Apprently Grandma Claudia made a few last adjustments to the will before she died" the lawyer informed Jeff Parker via the telephone "and your name shows up the number of zero times".
"What?" Jeff spat "you've got to kidding, she had to leave me something".
"Wait a minute...." The lawyer double checked "ahh she did leave you something" Jeff sighed with relief "she left you her cats".
"That's it" Jeff spat again.
"Fraid so" the lawyer answered "but you daughter Liz Parker comes up a lot in the will".
"Really?" Jeff said curiously "tell me what she gets?".
"She gets the house, the car, her share of the crashdown and... " the lawyer exclaimed "25 thousand dollars".
"No" Jeff objected "she's a kid, what is she gonna do with a house, a car a piece of some low budget diner and 25 thousand dollars cash. There has to be something I can do".
"There is" his lawyer answered in a calm tone "but I advise you strongly against it, you have to think of your image sir. How would it look to the public if you go to trial with your only daughter over your mothers will proceedings".
"I see" Jeff replied calmly "you have a point. What do you advise?".
"Talk to your daughter" the lawyer advised "try and sort this out in private".
"Okay" Jeff sighed "good bye John".
"Goodbye Jeff" the phone went dead.
And they did. They got a hold of a picture of me when I had a really bad hang over one morning and claimed I was a junkie.
Liz does a half spinning in-to-out crescent kick followed swiftly by a leg sweep, knocking the vampire's legs out from under him. She stands back up and gets ready to punch him, but he's had enough. He scrambles to his feet and hightails it out of there. Liz sighs deeply, running after him and tackling him to the ground. She scrambles to her knees and jams her stake home. The vampire explodes in a cloud of ashes.
"I saw my mom today" Liz sighed, resuming her seat on one of the swings.
"Did her breathe smell of bourbon as usually" Kyle sniggered, as he swung higher and higher into the sky.
"No" Liz answered looking up at the stars "I guess this time she was just high on life to tell me all the things that went wrong in hers" Kyle stopped swinging.
"What did she say?" He asked with concern.
"Oh you know the usually" Liz answered "just that she wished I was never born and that I ruined her life".
"What a bitch" Kyle exclaimed looking over at Liz "I only have to take one look at you to see what an amazing person you are".
"Trying to get in my good books huh" Liz smiled at him "where have you been? I really needed these past few days".
"I had to deal with some stuff" he lied, swinging again "you seem okay to me".
"Outside maybe, inside... " she paused looking back to the stars "inside I'm a train wreck".
"It will be okay" Kyle reassured.
"That's what everyone keeps telling me" Liz sighed "but so far... It's worse" Liz's phone began to ring.
"I think your ass is ringing" Kyle sniggered.
"17 years on earth and you still act like you in grade 2" Liz said rolling her yes, dipping her hand into her back pocket and whipping out her phone "hello... Hey dad.... Yes I did see mom today... I don't think that's a good idea.... Listen... I... Can you listen to me at least once.... Fine if it will get you off my back I'll see you in a few minutes... Goodbye" Liz hung up.
"What's up?" Kyle asked.
"Senor Chows" Liz said getting up off her swing "You wanna come".
That's partly the reason they sent me away, I was skipping classes, getting home late from slaying. Real good story for the press if you know what I mean.
"Classy" I said sarcastically walking into the restaurant wearing my low slung jeans and halter neck top, while my parents of course wore nothing but the finest. I rolled my eyes and sat down at there table "hi mom, dad".
"Kyle" my mother gasped, eying him up and down "my my haven't you grown".
"Thanks Mrs Parker" Kyle said uncomfortable immediately taking the seat next to me.
"Please.." My mother said, seductively "call me Nancy".
"Mom" I said glaring at her "back off".
"I was just been friendly" Nancy said sitting back in her chair.
"Yeah right..." I said leaning forward "and prostitute's are actually undercover postal workers" Kyle sniggered.
"Hello and welcome to Senor chows" a waitress with short red hair smiled at us "what can I get you this evening".
"Were still going over the menu, can you come back later" the girl nodded and walked off "god damn..." My dad cursed "don't they have anything other than nachos here".
"Dad" I said grabbing his attention "look where you are... Your in a Mexician restaurant".
"Oh.." He said resuming his search of the menu I rolled my eyes and looked over at my mother who was looking at Kyle like he was her next meal.
"What do you want?" I asked my parents who looked at my dumbfound.
"This is just like you Lizzy" My father said banging his fist on the table "Can we just sit down and....".
"Cut the speech" I ordered "tell me the truth or I walk".
"This is the truth Lizzy" my mother pleaded.
"Lets go Kyle" Kyle stood up to leave.
"Wait" my father called stopping me in my tracks "sit down" I sat down "you know why were here, well imagine our surprise when me and your mother found out that we get nothing accept her cats 'Missy and Courage'".
"Ungrateful hag" Nancy chirped.
"Shut your mouth or I'll rip out your face" I threatened, causing her to quieten immediately "so what does this have to do with me?".
"Unlike us you were mentioned in the will multiple times" I gestured for him to continue "You get the house, the car, her part of the crashdown and 25 thousand dollars... And we think that your not old enough to handle that much responsibility".
"Please" I said getting up "I've been able to take care of myself since the day I was born and if you think I'm gonna give you anything you thought wrong. Lets go Kyle".
"Lizzy" my father screamed at me "stop being selfish were your parents".
"Me being selfish" I growled turning around and smashing my fist into her face, knocking her out "I never want to see you guys ever again do you here me. I don't want you in my life, I don't want you in my town, I don't want you in my state" I turned and walked out.
"How dare you..." My dad yelled after me "do you know who we are? We can bury you".
"Yeah but not without burying yourself" I called back "I'm glad you here Kyle".
"Me too" Kyle smirked walking out with me.
I feel better, free I guess. But I can't help but feel I'm losing an up hill battle where everything just gets worse.
I've updated yet again, I know this isn't much but I've almost finished the next part. Giggles!!!

| HEAT WAVE|
This is Liz Parker, and this heat wave is making everyone go crazy. Heat expands, melts, makes things boil, sets things on fire.
"Hey" I called entering Toplosky's office "Liz Parker calling for duty".
"Hey Liz" Topolsky said jumping out behind her chair "I heard about dinner with your parents. You okay?".
"I'm good" I replied sitting down in a chair "Actually I'm better than good, I'm happy go lucky girl today".
"That's good to here" Topolsky said looking up at me "How did slaying go last night?".
"It didn't go" I sighed, snuggling into my chair "I didn't run into the big bad last night".
"Oh" Topolsky scratched her head "must be a slow night".
"Yeah really slow... What are you doing over there?" I asked in a rush.
"I'm labelling the files in colour code" Topolsky informed, causing me to cock my eyebrow at her "I'm going to be away for a few months to a watchers retreat in England".
"A watchers what?" I asked.
"There's a Watchers' retreat every year in the Cotswolds" Topolsky explained "It's a lovely spot. There's horse riding and hiking and punting and lectures and discussions. it's a great honor to be invited".
"Sounds cool" I sighed "but what about me... What do I do while your gone?".
"The same as always" Topolsky answered moving over to her file cabinet "slay, train, homework...".
"It will be like you never left" I replied sarcastically, getting up and walking out only to have someone push my stuff out of my hands and on to the ground.
"Sorry" I gasped.
"It's okay.." The girl said, moving right past me as if nothing happened.
"Oh..." I sighed reaching down and picking my stuff up.
"Liz" I looked up and meet Kyle's face "You know Vicky Delaney" I looked at the blonde.
"Yeah" I smiled weakly "How are you?".
"Great" she smiled back, tightening her grip on Kyle's hand "Um, hey, Kyle and I are going to this thing tonight. You should come".
"Nah" Kyle said getting uncomfortable "I bet Liz is really busy...".
"A party?' I interrupted Kyle.
"Yeah, it's at the old soap factory. It should be pretty wild".
"You know what? I'll be there" Kyle looked shocked and Vicky looked delighted "a party sounds great. Um, so maybe I'll just see you two there" and with that I walked off.
And seeing the effect of this heat all around me just pointed out in this really blatant way how everything was changing and I was helpless to stop it.
"'Kyle and I are going to this thing tonight. You should come'" I said imitating Vicky Delaney's voice, I rolled my eyes and tapped impatiently on a wooden stake "and maybe you should grow a brain" I stopped at the sound of twig breaking "I know your out there so why don't you just save me the trouble and come out" two large male vampires stepped out of the darkness and looked me.
"Your the slayer ain't ya?" One of them growled.
"I really wish I could say the one and only" I said giving them a loo over "but yeah, I'm a slayer".
"She's so cute. And little" the other exclaimed "Think we can keep her?".
"Ah, there will be no keeping of any kind" I snapped at them "you know what here's a deal, I'll let you live if you promise me you won't kill anyone".
"Your funny" one of the two sniggered.
"I didn't know I was a comedian" I snapped at them, getting tired of this game. Suddenly out of no where the bigger one of the two lunged at me, I quickly ducked his advances and threw my leg into his chest knocking him to his knees. I pounced on him, using my weight to have an advantage over him before cleanly running my stake into his chest and turning him to dust.
"Bitch" the other one gasped, grabbing me from behind and throwing me out of the cemetery and into on coming traffic. I quickly got to my feet and flipped out of the way, looking across the street at the vampire who had steam coming out of his ears.
"Hey" I called, smirking at him "I guess what they say is true, vampire's are easy".
"I'm gonna rip your head off" he threatened running across the street. I ran into a alley and grabbed the metal lid of a bin. I swing it into his head repeatedly, before he manages to absorb the blows and come at me swinging. I block his punches with the lid before kicking him in the groin and ramming the lid into his head.
"How do like them apples" I smirked losing the lid.
"You.." He reached and grabbed me by the neck "I'm gonna..." I quickly kick him in the jaw, causing him to drop me. I regain ground and kick his legs out from underneath causing him to fall face first to the ground. I reach into my back pocket and pull out a stake. Turning him quickly to dust.
"You were what?" I smirked with victory, before my parade was interrupted.
"AHHHH" Someone screamed from within one of the warehouse's. I looked up at a stack of crates and climbed them, until I could see into the building. Inside were people dressed in black suits and white coats, with a man who they looked like they were operating on.
"Oh my god" I gasped knowing I had to help him.
Like a merry-go-round that's spinning out of control with me in the middle.
"Have you seen Liz?" Maria asked Max as she looking around the rave for her.
"No" Max answered, looking at Maria very observantly "How'd things go with Michael?".
"More like 'how didn't things go with Michael'" Maria growled in a low annoying tone as she saw Michael on the other side of the room looking bummed out.
"What happened?" Max asked curiously.
"He said things were getting to intense" Maria said rolling her eyes "too intense, ha...." Maria paused and looked deeply at something.
"What is it?" Max asked.
"Does that look like police lights too you?" Maria asked pointing towards 3 pairs of red and blue flashing lights.
"COPS" someone yelled.
"Oh shit" Maria gasped as everyone began to run out like a bomb was about to go off "I've gotta find Alex".
"I've gotta find Isabelle and Michael" Max panicked.
I've been having these feelings, like I'm changing inside, and part of me doesn't want to change.
"oh my god" Liz gasped again, as they trained what looked like a laser into the poor guys eyes. before she could whip into action and break through the window, a soldier came up behind her.
"Hold it" he ordered. Liz swung around on the balls of her heels and hit the gun away, grabbing the soldier by the vest and throwing him through the glass interrupting the operation.
"gives a new meaning to crashing the party" she smirked before she heard the pitter patter of feet coming towards her. she looked up and grabbed a hold of two bars. Swinging herself up and out of sight.
"what's going on out there" a radio on the first soldiers vest sounded. he looked around and grabbed the radio from his vest.
"intruder must have evaded us sir" the soldier answered looking around.
"find him, now" the radio shouted with annoyance.
"yoo-hoo" I called grabbing both of their attention as I swung out and hit them both. the soldier on the end falling to the ground while the other quickly recovered from the attack and began to punch at me. I blocked and dropped to my knee's, kicking his knee's and knocking his legs from out underneath him. he fall back like I expected and I sat on top of him, slamming my fist into his face and knocking him out.
"what's going on?" the radio screamed again "solider" I grabbed the soldier and threw him through another window into the warehouse, before entering myself. the doctors look stunned.
"I'm not interrupting something am I?" I asked looking between the two.
"actually..." the doctor smirked raising his gun and aiming for what I presumed to be my head "yes you are" he was about to pull the trigger when the blonde guy on the operation table flew at him and snapped his neck. panting he looked towards me, sweat trickling down his face.
"Max" he panted. I shook my head.
"behind you.." I screamed. the other guy had pulled out a gun and began to fire at the guy, hitting him in the back and causing him to fall to the ground. I took cover "shit" I gasped.
"come out with your hands up" a voice boomed from outside "we have you surrounded".
"help" the guy with the gun screamed taking his eyes off me. I sprinted from my position and took him down with one punch before helping the cute blonde to his feet.
"Max" he gasped again.
"I've gotta get you out of here" I panicked looking towards a back door "come on" I ordered.
I've got a bad feeling about this......b]

| THE BALANCE|
There are days when everything seems wrong, when little things just irk you for no good reason. And then there are days when the whole world just sings to you from the minute you open your eyes in the morning, till the minute you shut them again at night, days when you actually enjoy cleaning the milk shake machine.... today is not one of those days.
"hurry" I cried trying to quicken my step, by the guy was dragging "Come on".
"I can't" he gasped, flopping out of my arms like a sausage "I... I'm not gonna make it".
"listen here" I said grabbing him by the collar "I don't know who you are and I don't know what the hell was going on in there but your gonna make it you hear" his eyes were closed and his mouth was wide open "obviously not".
"hey" I spun around and found myself face to face with several or so mean looking vampires "you the slayer".
"No, I just think it's funny to go around saying I am" I snapped at them "what's it to you?".
"you killed my buddies" he growled, the alley looking a little bit darker "your gonna pay".
"you have the worst timing" I growled as he came towards me.
"really" he grows ripping a pipe of one of the walls and handling it like a bat "feels pretty good to me".
"Walk away" I threatened more than ordered "I'm serious. Don't do this. Not now"
The two vampires on either side of Liz lunged at her, Liz stepped back and let the two run into each other before kicking them both into the others. the vamp with the pipe began to swing at her, Liz ducking and weaving before grabbing a hold of the bat and yanking it away from him. A female vampire came up behind her, she rammed the pipe cleanly into the vampires chest before turning and ramming it into another. both turning to dust simultaneously. the guy wielding the pipe before grabbed Liz from behind, Liz threw her elbow into his face knocking him back before the two appeared grabbing her arms and holding her so their leader could finish her off.
"your good" the vampire smirked, wiping blood off his chin and drinking it "looks like it's the end of the road slayer".
"watch out, I'm not done yet" I promised grabbing a hold of the two vampires who were holding me and flipping her twisting there arms at the shoulder. I tumbled over to the staff and got back to my feet just as the two vampires came out me. blocking their punches I threw the pipe into one of the vampires kicking the other before landing back on the ground and killing them both. I looked at the last vampire standing, who was serious reconsidering his move.
"I'm sorry" he stuttered.
"run" I ordered. he took off down the alley like a bat out of hell, too bad I though taking aim at his heart and throwing the pipe at him. it pierced right through his body turning him quickly to dust.
I turned and walked back over to the tall blonde stranger wishing I really knew his name. At the sound of sirens I picked him up and dumped him in a garbage bin, before jumping in on top of him as the cop car passed.
"I've gotta get you out of here" I said aloud to no one in particular.
THE GUIDANCE COUNSELOUR'S OFFICE.
Kyle watched patiently as the guards did a sweep over the halls and office's before ducking out the front door and checking the perimeter. Guard left and Kyle jumped from his position in the Eraser room, creeping down the hall towards Topolsky's office. he looked around before leaning down and trying to pick the door, entering with success. Kyle closed the door behind him and began to look around, the file cabinets in clear view. reaching for the keys he had taken from Topolsky's home, he opened the cabinet and began his search.
"Max Evan's" he smiled lifting out the file, reading it careful "...has a feeling of indifference to others around him, a loner..." he read aloud "I wonder why that is Max Evan's?".
"hey" Kyle spun around and stared dead blank into a flash light "you hold it right there".
"Don't you have anything important to do with your spare time" Alex laughed at his friend of the phone.
"It's the truth" his friend exclaimed from wherever he was in Roswell "It's alternative press following up on the Eyes Only story about the escapees from Manticore. Everything that the government doesn't want you to know".
"whatever" Alex said hearing the door bell ring "I've gotta go, someone's at my door".
"don't go" his friend exclaimed "It could be the government, we could be labelled a threat to the truth".
"All I've gotta say Derek is, cut down on the X-files" Alex laughed "goodbye" Alex hung up the phone and ran down the stairs opening the door. On his door step stood Liz supporting a guy who was almost twice her size.
"little help" she pleaded.
"Oh god" Alex gasped stepping forward and helping her "what happened?".
"I was attacked by vampires while me and this big guy here, were trying to get away from the police and this government guys" Liz replied dumping him on the bench and stripping his top off to take a look at his wound.
"did you say what I think you just said" Alex began to panic.
"don't chuck I Maria on me Alex" Liz pleaded, concentrating on the guy "I need you to get me your first aid kit".
"I've gotta stop listening to Derek" Alex said to himself as he sat on the floor.
"Alex" Liz screamed at him, snapping him out of his daze "I need you right now understand" Alex nodded reluctantly "good, now go and get me the first aid kit" he nodded again and run off upstairs.
"tonight is gonna be a long night" I sighed looking down at my mystery man.
hey guys I've updated, I'm working on the next part as I write. so update soon.

| TOY HOUSE IN THE WOODS |
"when do your parents get back?" I asked looking down at John Doe, who we had made comfortable in the spare room of Alex's house.
"5 days" Alex yawned, rubbing his eyes from the sleep "Your gonna explain to me later what the hell is going on right?".
"I promise" I said looking up at him "You better get some sleep" he nodded.
"you too" he says walking out and leaving me with John Doe, god I wish he would wake up, talk, anything. Suddenly, as though someone had been listening, his eyes fluttered open and he looked around.
"where am I.." he asked struggling to get up.
"you safe" I said pushing him back down, his eyes met mine and his face softened.
"blue lady" he asked, his eyes sparkling with hope.
"No" I shook my head, his face looking around in confusion "do you know where you are? or what happened?".
"no" he answered, a bit confused "where am I?".
"your in Roswell new Mexico" I answered, brushing my hand across his head "your safe now".
"I... you saved me" he said looking back at to me, gratefully "I need to get out...".
"your still to weak" I said trying to push him back down "you have to rest".
"there looking for me.. and the others" he began to panic "I have to protect the others".
"your not strong enough" I growled forcing him to lay back down "Now I'm no doctor or nurse, but tonight you've been through hell and I don't think you should get up until you've fully recovered okay".
"what would you know?' he snapped harshly "you don't know anything about me".
"your right" I said crossing my arms "feel free to leave" he swung his legs over the bed, his body still covered in the blanket, the pain in his back killing him before he realised something.
"where are my clothes?" he asked sheepishly.
"down stairs" I answered, looking at him as if he were a piece of meat "their still soaked".
"Oh" he gulped looking around "why did you save me?".
"it's what I do" I answered simply, he turned and looked at me.
"Your strong" he admitted.
"your not bad yourself" I answered, feeling all of a sudden a little bit uncomfortable "is that meant to mean something?" he looks at me in confusion "the bar code".
"it doesn't mean anything" he says feeling subconscious "not anymore" a awkward silence crept over them "listen" he finally spoke up "I don't wanna get you in any more trouble..".
"trouble" I laughed aloud, causing him to give me a odd look "you don't know the meaning of the word".
"try me" he smirked, he's cute when he smirks.
"No" I answered, causing him to lose his smirk "I don't even know who the hell you are, so before I go telling you all my personal details... I wanna know your name".
"Zack" he answered "and who are you?".

"this morning" he smirked taking a seat at the counter.
"you didn't break out did you" Maria said seizing him up.
"got released" he said looking down at the menu "good behaviour".
"That's a first" Maria snorted "You don't think that you're going to stay with us do you?".
"Oh, uh, Aunt Amy already gave it the thumbs up" Sean smirked at his cousin.
"She is such a soft touch, isn't she?" Maria rolled her eyes, as Isabelle walked in and took a seat one stool up from Sean "what can I get you?".
"Alien blast" Isabelle answered.
"hello" Sean said gesturing to the chair between them "this seat empty".

"you wouldn't understand?" Kyle answered.
"Maybe I don't understand because you never tell me" Jim replied looking away "is this about Liz?".
"No" Kyle answered "this has nothing to do with her".
"then let me guess that all of this is about Max Evan's" Jim yelled gaining Kyle's attention "I know your were reading his file son, and I know you've been investigating him".
"no" Jim interrupted "I've had enough of this, I want you to stay away from Max Evan's. he's bad news".
"You know something about him don't you" Kyle suddenly spoke up from the blue.
"tell me your gonna stop investigating him" Jim ordered, Kyle shook his head "tell me?".
"I can't" Kyle answered. Jim sighed with defeat and left his cell.
"aliens, Demons, vampires and transgenics" Alex sighed aloud "what kind of drugs were you guys on when you thought up this stuff and where can I get some".
"it's the truth" Zack sighed looking over at Liz.
"the truth" Liz said in a whisper "my world just got a whole lot more complicated".
"what about me" Alex said putting his arms in the air "I just found out my best friend is a slayer, this guy who is staying in my house is a transgenic soldier and aliens go to my school".
"you know you can't tell anybody about us?" Liz said looking over at her best friend.
"what about Maria?".
"especially not Maria" Liz replied quickly "you've gotta promise me you won't tell anybody about tonight, who I really am and him".
"sure" Alex sighed "why not?".
"great" Liz smiled "who's up for pizza? I'm buying".

"Oh, you're right. You're good for nothing" hank growled getting up and sculling the rest of his beer, before glaring at Michael from across the trailer "Do the wash now".
"Go to hell hank" Michael snapped getting up.
"No wonder ya parents dumped ya in the dessert" hank spat at Michael "how'd want ya?".
"Who are you, father of the year? You're a man who keeps me around just to collect the monthly check" Michael snapped back.
"What's going on?" Maria asked entering the trailer wearing a cling dress that showed off all her curves "I heard yelling".
"Well hello Dolly" hank smirked, looking Maria up and down "wanna drink?".
"Stay away from her" Michael ordered, stepping in front of Maria who put her hands on his back "you hear me".
"Was I talking to you" hank slurred angrily "You wanna drink princess?" Their was a brief silence "Are you gonna answer?".
"Here's my answer" Maria growled like a wild cat, picking up his drink and throwing it at his face "you jerk".
"You stupid Bitch" hank yelled smashing his bottle against the trailer wall before coming at Michael with the broken half. Michael stepped towards Hank and unleashed his power on Hank. A chair moves across the room and slams into a wall, shattering it to pieces. The refrigerator doors open and close. The bottle in Hank's hand breaks.
"What the hell?!? Oh, you little bastard. You're a freak. I always knew it. You're a freak!" Hank yelled at the top of his lungs. Maria grabbed Michael and pulled him out the door towards her jetta.
"Get in" she ordered, Michael jumped in and they drove off "Are you okay?".
"I almost killed him" Michael said looking down at his hands "Congratulations Maria, you just made everything worse".
"Sorry for caring about your worthless ass" Maria cried bring the car to a stop "get out of my car".
"Why did you come here tonight?" Michael asked.

"Your just can't kiss me when you feel like it" Maria yelled at him "and you can't just run out on me when things start to get to intense... So just get out now" Michael jumped out of the door and Maria drove off leaving him in the rain.
Give me the power. Give me the dark.
I call on you, the laughing gods.
Let your blackness crawl beneath my skin.
Accept they sacrifice... of Maria. Feed on her.
Maria looked at the barely visible road, on her way back to Roswell, her vision getting cloudier with every mile when suddenly everything just went black.
"Oh my god" Maria screamed clutching the wheel "Oh my god". The car suddenly swerved off the road and into a light poll. Maria slammed her head against the steering wheel and knocked herself out instantly. Blood seeping out from a crack in her head.
Courtney looked through the window at Maria before walking off towards a bridge up ahead and dropping a small blonde hair doll into the river underneath. Disappearing into the night, as the siren's of an ambulance came close.
Diana... goddess of love and the hunt... I pray to thee. Let my cries bind the heart of thy beloved. May he neither rest nor sleep. until he submits to his will only. Diana, bring about this love and bless it.

I thought I knew
You were the one I loved
The one thing that
I tried to hold on to
Topolsky is sitting in her study reading when there is a knock at the door, she gets up and walks over to her door opening it to see Liz. she barges in leaving Topolsky surprised.
And it hurts to want everything
And nothing at the same time
I want what's yours
And I want what's mine
I want you
But I'm not giving in this time
Maria walks home alone when Michael appears and pulls her into a tight hug, Maria doesn't resist and they stand together for what seems like hours.
Goodbye to you
Goodbye to everything
I thought I knew
You were the one I loved
The one thing that
I tried to hold on to
The one thing that
I tried to hold on to
Liz wipes her tears away in time to see the leaving Roswell sign pass her window.
And when the stars fall
I will lie awake
You're my shooting star
THIS IS ONLY THE BEGINNING
I hope ya like my update.

|Nobody knows who I am. Not the real me. It's like, nobody cares enough to find out. I mean, does anyone ever ask me what I want to do with my life? Or what my opinion is on stuff? Or what restaurant to order in from? No. Underline. Exclamation point. Exclamation point, exclamation point. (pause) No one understands. No one has an older sister who's a slayer. People wouldn't be so crazy about her if they had to live in the same house with her every single day. Everybody cares what she thinks. Just 'cause she can do back flips and stuff. Like that's such a crucial job skill in the real world. Plus Mom lets her get away with everything. Your sister's saving the world. I could so save the world if somebody handed me super powers... but I'd think of a cool name and wear a mask to protect my loved ones, which Buffy doesn't even. If this town wasn't so lame everyone would completely know what she does. And then I bet they wouldn't even be that impressed, because like, killing things with wood? Oh, scary vampires, they die from a splinter |
"Janice" Dawn said looking down the deserted street "Are you sure this is a good idea?".
"Oh course" Janice answered, smiling to herself "don't tell me your afraid?".
"I'm not..." Dawn said looking around "I just... I don't wanna get caught".
"What did you tell your sister?" Janice said hoping over a small fence.
"I told her.." Dawn paused jumping over the fence "I told her I was sleeping over your place".
"Ahh. The Mominator thinks I'm staying at yours" Janice laughs, walking down a alley way "Can't believe they fell for that one, like, own a TV".
"So where are we going?" Dawn asked, looking around excitedly.
"The park" Janice said in a sinister voice "That's where all the monsters gather on Halloween".
"Whatever" Dawn said slapping her on the arm and walking off.
"Hey wait up" Janice called running after Dawn, both girls staggering around the corner "oh my god".
Break me off
Show me what you got
'Cause I don't want
No one minute man
Break me off
Show me what you got
'Cause I don't want
No one minute man
Break me off
Show me what you got
'Cause I don't want
No one minute man

"So what's the verdict?" Zack asked looking around the party, his eyes landing on a cute blonde on the other side of the park "cool party, or what?".
"It's okay?" Justin sighed, looking around at all the drunken teens "If you like this sort of crowd".
"And you don't" Zack exclaimed "The girls here are easy man, there to drunk to resist".
"Whatever" Justin said finishing his beer.
"Well, well" Zack smirked "look at what just walked in" Justin looked up and meet the eyes of a raven haired angel, with a slender figure and long brown hair that swept around her like air "I'm guessing you like what you see".
"yeah" Justin said standing up straight.
"Look at you" Zack laughed at his friend "All love at first sight and shit, what do you think?".
"I don't know" Justin sighs deeply "She's cute".
"Well, congratulations for having eyeballs" Zack called "But what about, uh, you know, going all the way? Do you think..." The sound of soft giggling stopped Zack.
"Hey there" Janice smiled up at him.
"Hey" Zack smirked, invading her space "wanna dance?".
"Okay" Janice answered before being whisked away from Dawn.
"Don't mind my friend..." Justin said to Dawn "when he was born the doctor's dropped him on his head" Dawn giggled "I'm Justin".
"I'm Dawn" Dawn smiled, shaking his hand.
"That's a great name" Justin smiled.
"Yeah right" Dawn said sitting down next to him "I've seen you around, at parties".
"Yeah" Justin said with surprise "I can't believe I missed such a pretty girl like you" Dawn blushed and looked away "you wanna dance?".
"Sure" Dawn smiled, letting him lead her away.
Tonight I'ma give it to you
Throw it to you
I want you to come prepared
Oh yeah (Oh yes)
Boy it's been a long time
A crazy long time
And I don't want no minute man
And that's real
Give it to me some more
"the parties over here" the brunette smiled as her partner lead her further into the darkness.
"I was thinking maybe.." He says pushing her up against a tree, and pinning her in place with his body "we could make a little party of our own?".
"Does this usually work?" she hissed breathlessly, his lips kissing up and down her neck.
"I wouldn't know" he said, hating every second away from her skin "I've never tried it before" grabbing his neck she pushed him back.
"Yeah right, am I really to believe I'm special or something" she pouted like a little puppy.
"You are special" he said moving back in "Now stop struggling, this won't hurt a bit" The boy vamps out and moves in to bite the girl. She grabs him by the neck, pushes him away a bit and elbow jabs him in the face. He staggers back and regains his balance as she jumps onto a crate. She does a jumping roundhouse kick to his face, knocking him to the ground.
"Poor baby" the brunette giggled, causing the vampire to frown.
"Who the hell are you?' The vampire growled getting to his feet slowly.
"Have you ever heard the expression, 'biting off more than you can chew'?" The vampire frowned "Okay. Um ... how about the expression, 'vampire slayer'?".
"What the hell are you talking about?" The vampire growled, ready to attack at any given moment.
"Wow. Never heard that one. Okay. How about, 'Oh god, my leg, my leg'?" The vampire growls and lunges at her. She ducks his grab, punches him in the face and kicks his leg. His knee buckles and he falls to the ground.
"Oh god my leg, my leg" he screamed in pain.
"See? Now we're communicating" she smiled. Before the vampire could react Liz came down on him, staking him and walking back to the party as if nothing had happened, but something caught her eyes. Two girls were walking off with two guys she had been watching the entire night, two guys who were a little dead to be dating. She stalked across the park and followed them, closely.
Ooh, I don't want, I don't need
I can't stand no minute man
I don't want no minute man
Ooh, here's your chance
Be a man take my hand
I don't want no minute man
Janice screamed and pushed Zack off her, raising her hand to her neck to stop the bleeding "you bit me" she screamed.
"Oh come on..." Zack hissed looking up at Janice, his face vamped out "you wanted me a few minutes ago" before Janice could scream Zack lunged at her and resumed his hold on her neck, before a pair of arms rip him off and pushed him down a short hill.
"Janice?" Giles exclaimed, bringing the girl to her feet.
"He bit me" she cried, holding her neck "That jerk bit me!".
"Like you weren't asking for it" Zack said appearing behind Giles, with a deadly smirk on his face.
"I feel certain she wasn't" Giles said stepping in front of Janice.
"What do you know about it, grandpa?" Zack growled taking a few swings at Giles, who ducks and tackles Zack around the middle.
"Quite a bit actually" Giles says, before they go down and roll down the hill, entangled together. Janice watches fearfully. At the bottom of the hill Giles and Zack get up and trade blows. Zack does most of the punching, then kicks Giles and he goes down. From his knees, Giles blocks another punch and hits Zack in the stomach, then gets up and kicks him. Zack flies backward and winds up against a tree. Zack looks down to see a branch sticking out of his body.
"That sucks" Zack says, before bursting into dust.
"Dawn" Giles says walking up to Janice "Where's Dawn?".
"I don't know" Janice cries, her eyes locked on where Zack had disappeared "I don't know".
Break me off
Show me what you got
'Cause I don't want
No one minute man
"get away from me" Dawn screams, running out of the car and towards the surrounding woods.
"Dawn" Justin calls, getting out of the car and running after "Dawn, please wait" he stops her, his face vamped out "I thought we could, you know, like hang out or something".
"Hang out" Dawn spat, backing up.
"Yeah. I mean ... you're not like other girls. You're different. There's something special about you. I knew it the first time I saw you" he says stepping forward "I just wanna be close to you" he reaches out to touch her face, but she jerks away.
"Shh. It's okay. It'll only hurt for a second" Justin promises, leaning into to bite her on the neck.
"I bet you say that to all the girls" Justin pulled back and looked up to a petite brunette, walking out of the woods with a stake in hand. "Now, you have a choice. We can do this the easy way, or we can do this the hard way".
"How about...." Justin growled, grabbing dawn by the neck and holding a blade to her throat "I kill her, then I kill you and I keep your body parts have souvenirs".
"You see...." Liz says stepping forward "that just isn't going to work".
"Really" before Justin could react dawn elbowed him in the chest, and then threw her fist into his groin, realising her "Dawn".
"Jerk" Dawn snapped at Justin.
"Bitch..." Before Justin could finish that sentence Liz kicked him in the face and staked him easily.
"Dawn" Giles called running up to the brunette and hugging her tightly, before letting his eyes look up at a certain brown haired stranger "thank you, who ever you are?".
"Giles? Right?" Liz said looking over at him.
"Yes" Giles said pulling away from Dawn "and you would be?".
"I'm Liz" Liz smiled shaking his hand "the vampire slayer".
I hope you like the new part

|sorry bout tha blah!!! I was just testing something out!!!|
"I'm tha man. Don't you forget".
"Yeah... You tha man".
"Zan look out".
I open my eyes and I look out the window at the passing scenery still thinking about that night. Ava risked her life for me, when I should have been the one to die. I guess that's why I'm on this trip, to Roswell NM that is. To warn my dupe about my back stabbing sister and my no good best friend. I guess the sayings true, tha past always repeats itself, or some shit life that.
"This seat taken?" Some old biddy with a bad back asks, staring at the seat next to me.
"Nah" I answered, removing my shit so she can sit down, boy does she smell. Not like B.O. More like an old person smell ya know.
"So..." She sighs looking over at me "where are you heading?".
"Roswell" I answer, keeping my eyes directed out the window, hopefully she'll take the hint and stop with the yapping.
"Are you going to see the aliens" she giggled to herself, if only she knew "I'm on my way to Sunnydale myself, to visit my grandchildren".
"That's nice" I answered sarcastically, but she keeps yapping on like I really meant it. Right now I'm thinking maybe I should have taken a plane, or stolen a car, or maybe shut her up with my powers. Then I remember, I wasted most of my energy healing myself, Ava may have pushed me out of the way, but I still got hit, then beat up, then robbed. Aint livin' in New York a breeze.
"You were parking with a vampire" Buffy erupted at her sister.
"I didn't know he was a vampire" Dawn protested.
"You didn't know" Buffy repeated, as if her sister were insane "How could you not know he was a vampire".
"I just meet him" Dawn explained.
"Oh, I see" Buffy called "You were parking with a boy you just meet, that makes everything oh so much better".
"Like you never went out with a vampire" Dawn spat.
"That was different" Buffy growled.
"It always is with you" Dawn said storming off towards the stairs.
"I'm not done yet" Buffy yelled, dawn swung around and glared at Buffy.
"Well I am" Dawn said turning on her heel and running off up the stairs towards her room, slamming the door shut after her. Buffy sighed with frustration.
"I just don't know what I'm going to do with her" Buffy said looking towards Giles and the new slayer.
"It will be okay" Giles reassured, walking over to Buffy and laying a firm hand on her shoulder.
"You don't know that" Buffy said looking up at her watcher, her eyes telling him in more ways than one she was on the verge of giving up "I know everyone says it will get better, but when... When mom was here everything was great and now... I'm falling apart Giles".
"Hush now" Giles said pulling Buffy into his arms, his eyes sweeping around the room towards Liz who stood uncomfortable to the side "Maybe we should take this as a blessing".
"What?" Buffy said pushing off her watcher "Dawn could have gotten killed not to mention...".
"I meant Liz, showing up now" Giles interrupted "she could help with the slaying while you... Work this out".
"Oh.. I knew that" Buffy said looking over towards Liz who was staring at a family photo "I knew that".
"I better go" Liz said heading for the door.
"Wait" Buffy ordered, stopping Liz in her tracks "I have questions?".
"Ask me tomorrow" I answered, yawning a little and contain towards the door.
"Okay" Buffy answered, before realizing she didn't know where the girl lived "Wait, where are you staying?".
"Sunnydale Motel" Liz answered picking up her jacket.
"You can stay here" Buffy said "everybody else does?".
"Nah" Liz smiled "I'm fine".
"Are you sure?" Buffy asked one last time.
"Yeah" Liz answered opening the door "I'm five by five" the door slammed shut behind her and Buffy turned to Giles.
"Did she say what I think she just said?".
"Fuck" Zan cursed as the vampire threw him up against a alley wall and threw his fist into his chest, causing him to curl up with his head on his knees.
"I've never tasted anything like you" the vampire smirked "and to tell you the truth... It's addictive".
"Hey" the vampire looked towards the end of the alley, where a small figure stood with her arm extended out above her shoulder "why don't you pick on someone your own sizes".
"Sure" The vampire called "why don't you grow a few inches and get back too me".
"Ahhh.... Rude much" Liz called charging up the vampire who ducks her attempts and begins punching back. A little off balance Buffy barely ducks his swings, she stand up straight and barely blocks a punch. The vampire hits her with his free arm and she goes down. He grabs her and throws her against a car. She lands on the hood, sits up and kicks the vampire with both feet. As it reels back, she stands up on the hood. The vampire goes to punch her and she leaps up onto the car's roof. Liz jumps off the car roof and picks up a metal garbage can and slams it down onto the vampire. It gets up as she raises the can for another blow. The vampire shoves the garbage can out of Liz's hands, then hits her in the face. She spins around and ends up with her face pressed against the car window. The vampire grabs her from behind, she spins around again and hits it. It reels backward. They trade kicks and the demon's head goes through the car window, breaking it. He turns into dust.
"Got anything funny to say now?" Liz panted.
"Oww!" Someone groaned.
"Oh" Liz said running over to the victim "Are you Oka..... Max?".
after trying and trying to post, I hope this works finally!! and I hope you like this part

Sobek, grant the power ... that it may mold this wretched creature ... that it may be reborn ... that it may serve ... ah! Dark incantations! Always overwritten! Cir hayyan win-hud! Cir hayyan win-hud!
"What are you doing in my room?" I snapped, Buffy spinning around and looking at me weirdly.
"I was just looking around.." She answers hesitantly "I was wondering if we could talk".
"What do you call, what were doing right now?" I asked walking past her and towards my dressing table "If this is about parking with a vampire, I didn't.....".
"It's not" Buffy interrupted, sitting down on my bed "I just wanna tell you that, I'm going to spend more time here and I'm gonna take care of everything".
I turn and look at her "what are you talking about?".
"Well now that Liz is here, she can take over some the slaying and we could spend time together" Buffy said hopefully "maybe we could go out to the mall or something".
"Why are you doing this?' I snapped.
"I thought this is what you wanted" Buffy asked.
"I don't know what I want" I said looking out my bedroom window "can you just get out".
"Dawn..." Buffy began.
"Get out" I demanded, pointing to the door, without a word Buffy stood and left the room closing the door behind her. I don't know why I'm so angry, I don't know why I do half the things I do. I hear the door slam down stairs, and I get up and begin to walk down stairs to the kitchen to grab a snack from the fridge. When the door slams open and a snack creature slithers in, knocking me to the ground.
"Buffy" I scream, hoping she could hear me, hoping someone could hear me "help". The snake hisses at me, before slithering out the door, me staring helplessly after it.
"Lil bit" Spike said running into the house "you okay?".
"I've gotta find Buffy" I choke getting up.
"Is he going to be okay?" I asked, looking down at the unconscious Max look-a-like.
"The bones are set, and the damage to the kidneys is repairable" the doctor answers, looking down at Zan in his hospital bed "But the head trauma, its… well its simply to severe. You know, it's a wonder he's alive at all, with the blood loss he's endured".
"Oh..." I says looking up at the doctor "thank you doctor".
He nods and walks away leaving me alone with the stranger, reaching for his clothes I begin search his pockets were any identification of any kind, but nadda. I sigh with frustration, wishing I knew who he was and why he look like Max. Brushing my hand over his, my brain begins to feel light and dizzy.
"Zan look out".
I pull back and stare down at him with astonishment, whipping out my phone I call the only person I know I can trust with this.
"So she is trying to make a monster?" Buffy said looking around at her friends, who look as guilty as they were "why? What does she want it for?".
"That's the part were trying to figure out..." Giles says wiping his spectacles "when we do we'll let you know".
"Good" Buffy said standing up "You keep working on it I'll go kill it".
"Buffy?" Giles called, Buffy turned and open her mouth to protest when dawn staggered threw the door.
"Dawn" Buffy choked running over to her sister and grabbing her "what's wrong? What happened?".
"A demon broke into our house" Dawn cried, as Buffy dragged her over to a table and sat her down.
"What happened?" Buffy asked giving her a once over "Are you okay? Did it hurt you?".
"No" Dawn shook her head "he... He looked like he was looking for something".
"Can you describe it to me?" Giles asked, from behind the counter.
"He looked like a huge snake with arms" Buffy looked over at Giles, worry evident in here eyes "what's going on? What does it mean?".
Realization dawned on Buffy "it knows" looking towards dawn she asked "what direction did the monster take off in?".
"East I think" Dawn answered, worriedly "what's going on?" Buffy got up and ran out with Giles hot on her heels.
"Buffy" he called stopping her in her tracks "what's going on?".
"I've gotta stop the monster before it gets back to Glory" Buffy says looking around.
"Glory?" Gile called "How do you know her name?".
"I don't know" Buffy answered "Giles, she's gonna know Dawn's the key if we don't....".
"We will" Giles called running to his car "come on".
Speeding down the street, Buffy sees the monster slither into a park and knock over a sign reading "bike path, closed after dusk" . Giles brings the car to a screaming halt, Buffy jumping out and runs after it while Giles speeds off to another location. Increasing speed, Buffy leaps over a few bushes in her way until she was just behind the monster, jumping on a park bench she leapt off it and on to the monster. There is a struggle, the monster gets the upper hand and throws Buffy against a metal fence, knocking the wind out of her and slithering off. Buffy grabs a chain connected to the fence and runs after him again, wrapping the chain around his neck and choking him. He thrashes like a wild horse until a gray film covers his eyes. Frowning Buffy lets go of the chain, and begins to back off. The film disappears and the monster throws Buffy back to the ground. The monster turns and lunges at Buffy, Buffy jumps to her feet and punches it. The punch causes him to reel backwards, giving her time to run and jump on him. Pinned against the ground, Buffy begins punching him until he lays perfectly still.
Giles creep out of the darkness with a sword in hand, his eyes fixated on Buffy who is still punching the monster.
Looking out the window I sigh "tonight has been one of the longest nights of my life".
"Tell me about it" Alex sighs looking over at Zan "what's his deal?".
"I don't know yet" I answer turning from the window and looking over at Zan "but I know I can trust him, we can trust him".
"Good" Alex yawned "the last thing I need is Max's evil twin running around and causing trouble for us" I look over at Alex and smile.
"I'm sorry" the nurse says coming into Zan's room "visiting hours are over".
"Lets go" liz ordered, gesturing Alex to follow her out "we'll come back in the morning" walking out the door, Zan felt a lose. Where am I?
I updated!!! I'll post more soon!!!

| Listen to fear |
Don't, don't want the boys
Don't, don't note the heat
Can't find a spoon...
Liz sighed and walked through the bronze as if she were walking on air, slowly she spotted Alex talking to some guy with spikey red hair and decide to make her way over. Dodging and weaving the mass she crossed the dance floor and sat down on the couch, sculling the rest of Alex's drink.
"Argh" Liz groaned almost choking "what was that?".
"That was bourbon" Alex answer sheepishly, looking around.
"Don't worry Alex your not gonna get caught" Liz coughed, shaking the feeling of dizziness off and looking up at the stranger she had seen Alex talking to you "Liz".
"Oz" he answers, with a cute smile "Alex tells me your the slayer".
"What?" I gasped.
...that we have had
The sugar cubes...
can melt our mouth
We belong, yes, to-to-together
"It's cool" Alex sighed "Oz here is a werewolf" I cocked an eye at him.
"Don't ask" he says looking around for someone.
"I won't" Liz sighed looking around, sadly "I think I'm gonna jet".
"You just got here" Alex said looking down at his empty cup.
"Yeah I..." Liz sighed again "I just feel out of it, I wanna get some sleep" Liz said getting up.
"Okay, Bye Liz" Alex called, Liz waving goodbye over her shoulder.
"She seems nice" Oz smiled.
"Yeah" Alex said, watching her retreating figure out the door "she's great".
We belong, yes, to-to-together
We belong, yes, to-to-together
We belong, yes, to-to-together
We belong, yes, to-to-together
".... So it shall be" a demon announced, crushing a human skull in his hands and glaring out the window at the town of Sunnydale, his eyes an errie red. A smirk plastered to his lips. Looking down at his amulet, his smirk broke into an all out grin "so it shall be".
(Mean while in Seattle)

Listen to fear Rewritten
"So when do we get to meet Liz?" Xander asked, pulling Anya into his lap.
"She should be here soon" Buffy said turning and looking at Giles, who was re-labelling some jars "So, you wanted to see me?".
"I just wanted to know how last night's slaying went?" He asked, labelling a jar of chicken legs.
"Zippo" Buffy said sitting down on a stool "Patrol's been totally uneventful. My kill count's way down".
"Well, we know what that often indicates" Giles says placing the jars back on their shelves.
"Buffy doesn't make her quota" Xander chimes in after over hearing their conversation "Bad slayer!".
"Well, I wish it were that innocuous, but with Glory around, I feel she's involved somehow" Giles said putting various thing back and walking around the counter towards the book stacks "None the less, I will investigate into it".
"Of course you will" Anya said over everyone, Giles looking at her with an annoyed expression on his face "Well, that was a thrilling hour". Anya turned and smiled at Xander, who smiled sheepishly back.
"You know, I really don't appreciate your snide remarks, Anya" Giles said turning his back to the couple and scaling his fingers along the books, all the while Anya pouting "Now, I have a great deal of experience in these matters.." Giles said addressing the group "and if I say there is a matter of some import brewing, I-I-I-.." Giles suddenly realises the group is concentrating on something without him, so without thinking he whips around and stares in stun.
"Hey" Oz waved shyly.
"I'm sorry were late, But I......" Liz paused when she turned to the faces of the slayer and what she took as her friends "you look like you guys just saw a ghost?".
"Oz" Willow gasped getting up out of her seat.
"Huh?" Liz said in confusion, Alex wondering if he had suddenly stepped into the twilight zone.
"Oz" Tara gasps, looking at Willow.
"Okay I'm getting the Oz" Liz said to the group "but my brain isn't processing the data".
"When, when did you get back?" Willow asked, sitting back down.
"Pretty much now" Oz said, taking in his ex girlfriends form.
"Oz, man" Xander says hesitantly, stepping forward from the group to greet their old friend "Hate to sound grandma, but... you don't call, you don't write".
"Yeah, sorry" Oz answers, still standing in the door way.
"So are you here here, or are you just passing through?" Buffy asked, trying to calm her nerves.
"Well, um, let's not, uh, bombard the poor chap with, uh, questions right off" Giles said walking towards the kettle in the back room "Can I get you something, um, tea?".
"I'll pass, thanks" Oz answered looking back at Willow, with lust "Look, I'm going to Devon's to see if he's got a place I can crash. But... I was hoping that we could talk. Later. Tonight".
"I guess so" Willow answered shyly.
"I'll come by your place?" Oz says before looking at the others "It's great to see you guys again. Really" and with that he walks out the door.
"Everyone's uncomfortable now" Anya says observing everyone, Liz opens her mouth to speak, but Tara beats her to it.
"I just, um - I realized, um, I'm-I'm late for study group" Tara says picking up her stuff to leave.
"Tara, wait" Willow pleads after her.
"No, no, it's okay. You-you should be with your friends, and, and I-I should go" Tara say before walking out the door in a rush.
"Wait..." Willow whispers after her, the room is filled with silence.
"What just happened?" Liz asked, aloud "and who is Oz?".
"So, Oz is a werewolf, and Willow was dating him?" Liz said as she and Buffy walked side by side through the cemetery.
"Yup" Buffy nodded.
"And I thought my love life was crazy" Liz smiled jumping over a few loose rocks "So how did he become a werewolf, I know he didn't wake up one morning and go 'hey I'm a werewolf'".
"It's kind of a long story" Buffy answered.
"He got bit?" Liz asked.
"Obviously not" Buffy answered, looking over at Liz curiously "How did you know that?".
"After I was called, I kinda started looking into the mystical" Liz replied looking up at the stars "that and my watcher kinda forced it upon me".
"You too?" Buffy laughed "what's your watcher like?".
"She's nice" Liz answered "she's like a mother too me".
"I know what you mean" Buffy frowned and turned to Liz "Accept Giles is more like a father" looking up Liz spied the hospital.
"I've got go" Liz said stopping completely "I've got a thing".
"a thing?" Buffy repeated with skepticism.
"It's kinda personal" Liz answered "I better...".
"Go" Buffy finished, a smile playing on her lips "I'll see ya tomorrow Liz".
"Sure thing B" Liz said before running off.
Everything is quiet
Since you're not around
And I live in the numbness now
In the background
Willow turns down her music and walks to the door, to find Oz standing outside with a smile on his face "Hey".
"Hey" Willow answers nervously "So.... Wanna come in?".
"Actually, I want you to come outside" Oz said gesturing for her to join him "I wanna show you something".
After a few minutes of walking, Willow finds herself walking through the campus with Oz, all the while a weird feeling nagging at her brain "Oz..." Willow says stopping them both from continuing on "This is all so weird. I-I-I feel like... this isn't really happening. Like it's a dream or, or something".
"It's real. Look up" Oz orders.
"What?" Willow asks, in confusion.
"Look at the sky" Oz smiled. Willow hesitated, before looking up at the full yellow moon "I guess you stopped keeping track of 'em after I left".
"Full moon" she gasped in amazement.
"Full moon" Oz nodded.
"Full moon, but-but how? I mean" Willow's smile grew "you did it! How, how did you do it? Where did you go?".
"It's a long story" Oz answers.
"Oh my god" Willow practically cries, launching herself into oz arms and hugging him tightly "This is... I mean, it's wonderful for you".
"I talked to Xander" Oz said sitting down on a bench with Willow "and he said you didn't have a new guy".
"No. No new... Guy" Willow stuttered.
"I know what I put you through, and I'm not gonna push. But I am... a different person than when I left. And I can be what you need now" Oz says, all the while Willow looking sad "That's what I want. That's why I'm here".
Alex walked through the hospital towards 'Zan's' hospital room, but when he got there he found a very emotionally Liz, crying over what looked like a letter "Liz?".
"Alex, can you just leave me alone" Liz cried, wiping furiously at her eyes.
"Liz, what's wrong" Alex persisted.
"Alex..." Liz cried.
"Hey" Alex interrupted "I know your a slayer and you can probably beat me in to a bloody pulp, but your like a sister to me Liz and I want to know what's wrong" there was a long pause. Walking over to Liz he picked up the letter and read through it.
I just wanted to let you know that I think about you every day and every night before I go to sleep, your the thing that keeps me going, your my shining light at the end of a long dark tunnel. I'm sorry I had to leave so abruptly, but I have an obligation to my family, I can only hope you understand.
"I miss him so much" Liz cried.
"Come here" Alex ordered, hugging Liz close to him. Her tears staining his shirt "it's going to be okay, it's all going to be okay".

| Listen to fear part 2 |
Liz curled up on her bed and cried, the letter scrunched up in her hand, her body twisted up in the covers. For a long moment she fell still, the tears running down her cheeks like a waterfall, before she willingly closed her eyes.
Her mind bombarded with images.
"I'm hit" Zack cries when he is shot in the knee.
Jumping out of bed in panic, a large green light leaves Liz's palm and sets her kitchen on fire "Oh shit".

| The Intervention|
"They don't want tha number two, they want tha royal four".
Zan tossed and turned in his bed as the memory of that night replayed in his mind, but this time it was more server. His sense's were on over load.
"Don't forget. I'm tha man".
"Yeah you tha man".
Zan threw back in his bed, sweat trickling down his face. His eyes moving rapidly under his lids.
Zan snaps his eyes open and gets up to take a full observation of his surroundings. He turns and looks at the heart monitor, raising his arm he looks at the IV feeding him through the vein. Without further hesitation he throws his legs over the bed and removes all wires attached to his body, the IV last of them all.
"Ouch" he gasped rubbing were the IV had once been. The pain eased, so he got to his feet and walked out into the fairly quite corridor.
"Excuse me" a woman in her mid thirties asked coming up behind Zan "Do you know how to get to the third floor west from here?".
"Uh, um . . . What?" Zan asked in confusion.
"I was just . . ." She stopped mid sentence "Do you need some help or something?".
"Roswell" he said remembering where he was supposed to be going.
"What?" The woman asked.
"Where am I?" Zan demanded.
"Sunnydale memorial hospital" she replied backing up a little "Are you okay?".
"I don't know" Zan answered "I really don't know".
Mean outside of Sunnydale
"What's in the trunk?" Liz asked curiously, looking over her watchers shoulder.
"Supplies" she answered, grabbing a few things.
"Supplies" Liz repeated, a smile playing on her lips "Like, food, water, maybe even a double meat palace burger" Topolsky cast an odd look at Liz "a hungry slayer, is a careless slayer".
"How about this" Topolsky said standing up straight "a book, a gourd, and a bunch of twigs?".
"I wasn't that hungry anyway" Liz said turning away.
"Come on, this way" Topolsky instructed "You see, the location of the sacred place is a guarded secret. I can't take you there myself. I'll have to perform a ritual to ... transfer my guardianship of you, temporarily, to, to a guide. This'll do" Topolsky said coming to a stop in a fairly open area of the wilderness. The twigs now arranged in the shape of a circle.
"So" Liz smiled, kneeling down beside her watcher "how does it start?".
"I, uh, jump out of the circle and then jump back in it, and then, um..... "Topolsky paused and looked away "I shake my gourd".
"I know this ritual" Liz smirked "The ancient shamans were next called upon to do the hokey-pokey and turn themselves around".
"Shut up" Topolsky said turning away from Liz ready to perform the ritual. Hesitantly Topolsky jumped in and out of the circle, finish it with a shake of the gourd. Nothing happens.
"And that's what it's all about?" Liz smirks.
"what do you mean he just wasn't there?" The doctor growled at a nurse, who was a little taken back by his aggressiveness towards her.
"I don't know" the nurse stuttered "I came to check the monitors like I always do at eight o'clock. Eight o'clock is my shift. I got here on time....".
"You found the bed in this condition?" The detective asked.
"Haven't touched a thing" the nurse said looking him dead in the eye.
"Get the duty rosters and check the log. I want to know exactly what happened" The doctor said flicking off the monitors "Coma patients do not just get up and walk away".
"We are checking every room on every floor" the nurse reassured, the doctor rolled his eyes and walked out. As soon as he was gone the nurse whipped out her cell and pressed in a number she had a speed dial.
"Lydecker" the voice answered.
"It's happened" the nurse sighed "Send the team".
"Where am I?" Liz asked, looking around the dark seen light only by one massive fire, they seemed to blanket everything. Liz looked beyond the fire towards a dark shadow, it's eyes devouring her like a piece of fruit "I know you".
"This is a form" she said without even moving her lips "I am the guide".
"I have questions..." Liz paused and sat down "about... About the changes?".
"Your not the slayer" the being hissed.
"Excuse me?" Liz asked in confusion.
"Your different now" she answered, from behind the fire "Your more".
"More?" Liz repeated "I don't understand, if I'm not the slayer than what am I?" Their was a long silence "what is happening to me?".
"You are the one" she hissed disappearing into the fire.
"Hey wait" Liz pleaded, the scenery changed and Liz found herself alone once again "what am I?".
I know it's not much but I am working on a new part as I write.
