Author's Note: This is the third part to this fic; takes place 5 years after the gang left Roswell. And of course trouble is awaiting the gang even though they are no longer in Roswell-land.


*I don't know if Agent Pierce's first name was ever mentioned in the show, so I made it up.(*Chad*)

Hope you enjoy.

*******************************************************************

Agent Daniel Pierce, brother to the late Chad Pierce, smiled as he listened to the steady sound of his footsteps echoing in the long hallway. Two of his four agents had already reported in to him this morning. Agent Stevens had reported that the Valenti boy had arrived at the garage that he works for and Agent Mullins reported that the Evans girl had arrived at her workplace as well. His survellience team was still up and running, waiting for Pierce to take the next step in his plan. Pierce figured that the other's hadn't left the house yet because his other two agents hadn't called in yet. Pierce thought about agent Mullins and got angry. He hated the man. Mullins always had a smart-ass smirk on his face and he stunk of stale cigarette smoke. But, he did his job and did it well, so Pierce couldn't complain. He wanted the best men for this operation and he got the best four; Mullins unfortunately was one of them.

Pierce stepped up to the security doors and placed his palm on the scanner and put his eyes in front of the retinal scanner. There was a loud beeping sound and the doors slid open. Pierce proceded down the hall passing several doors. He stopped at the third door from the end of the hall. He slid open the metal panel to look through the window into the room. His prisoner was still there laying on the stretcher. The prisoner was unconcious because of the dosage of drugs they had been given. Pierce smiled again as he saw the prisoner's hands struggle against the restraints that were strapping them to the stretcher. Pierce knew that his prisoner was having nightmares as it usually did.

"The nightmare hasn't even begun yet, my friend." Pierce whispered and slid the panel closed. He walked away and resumed listening to the sounds of his feet echoing off the walls.

************************************************************

Maria and Liz entered the living room to find Michael and Max watching a Spiderman cartoon.

"Hey, you ready?" Liz asked Max.

He jumped off the couch. "Yeah, a minute more of cartoons and I think my head will explode."

Michael scowled and put his feet up on the coffee table.

"Okay, let's go. I want to get this final over with and enjoy my time off from school." Liz said.

"Good luck." Maria said as Liz and Max turned to leave.

"Thanks"

Max smiled at Maria and turned to Michael. "That stuff is going to rot your brain."

Max and Liz walked out of the living room and Michael yelled to him. "It's my day off!"

"Bye Michael!" Liz called as they left the house.

"Break a leg!" Michael hollered as the front door slammed, then he muttered jokingly. "And Maxs' while you're at it."

Maria walked over and tried to pass Michael so she could grab her car keys off the table, but Michael had his feet up.

"Excuse me your majesty." Maria said sarcastically.

"What's the secret password?" Michael stated not taking his eye off the television.

"Move your ass." Maria said and started to step over him but he grabbed her and pulled her down on the couch beside him.

"I was looking for something like 'I love you Michael and worship the ground you walk on'"

Maria smiled at him."Michael, I have to go to work." She said but made no effort to move.

He took his feet off the table and crossed one leg over the other and pulled her down so her head was resting on his leg and she was looking up at him.

"Call in sick." He said playing with her ponytail.

"I can't."

"Come on, were all alone. How often does that happen?"

"Michael, I can't..." She repeated although the idea was very tempting.

"I know." He said and smiled. He brought is arm down and laid it across her stomach.

"So what are you gonna do today?" She asked trailing her fingers across the smooth surface of his forearm.

"Gotta run some errands, so I'm gonna need the car."

She looked up at him sharply. "Nice time to tell me."

"I'll drive you to work. Don't worry, I got it all palnned out."

"I'm glad you thought ahead." She joked.

"Well, I'm pretty incredible." He said smiling.

She hit him lightly on the arm. "Sometimes I don't know why, but you're my favourtie martain." She joked and put her hand behind his head and pushed it towards her. She kissed him lightly on the lips.

"Well, I guess you're my favourite human." He joked and kissed her harder.

Maria deepened the kiss. Even after all these years, she still got butterflies when she was close to Michael.

After a moment she moved her head away and got up. She held her hand out and pulled Michael to his feet.

"Let's go Spaceboy, anymore of that and I'll never get to work."

"Fine by me." He said and winked.

"Let's go." She said and they made their way out to the car.

************************************************************

"Did Michael get it yet?" Liz asked Max as he was driving her to the university.

Max shook his head. "He's going to after he drops Maria off at work."

Liz smiled and looked out the passenger window.

"You're pretty quite this morning. That's the first thing you said since we got in the car."

Liz closed her eyes and leaned her head against the seat.

"Are you worried about your final?" Max asked stopping at a red light.

Liz looked at him quickly. "No! I mean...I''m sure I'm going to be fine. It's just that.."

"What?"

"It's funny, I really don't know."

He turned and looked at her confused.

She smiled and a car honked from behind them. The light was green and Max stepped on the gas.

"What is it? You can tell me, I'm your husband after all." Max said smiling.

She looked straight ahead and sighed. "It's just that I have this feeling..."

"A feeling?"

"A bad feeling, like something bad is going to happen." She blurted out.

"You mean about Michael and-"

"No." She cut him off. "not that, something else."

Max glanced at her quickly. "Do you think that your powers are back?"

Liz shook her head. "No... I don't think so. I learned to surpress them when we all agreed not to use the powers that are unique to us. And that was years ago."

"Yeah, it would probably take a lot of energy and time for us to get accustomed to them again." Max said and pulled up infront of the university.

"That's what I was thinking."

"How long have you had this feeling?" he asked turning towards her.

"A few weeks and it keeps getting worse."

"Maybe it's just women's intuition or something." He said seriously.

She started laughing. "Nice try, but I highly doubt it."

"Look, don't worry about it. Just go in there, ace your final and show all of those scientist wannabe's whos the best." He said touching her hair.

She smiled and opened the car door.

"We can talk about it later. And don't worry." He said and leaned over and kissed her softly.

"Okay, we'll talk later." She said and got out of the car.

"Good luck." He said and smiled the smile that Liz couldn't get enough of.

"Thanks." Liz closed the door and walked towards the university.

Max started after her for a moment and thought about what she had said. He frowned and then drove away.

**********************************************************

Michael pulled the car into the parking lot of the club that Maria worked at and turned off the ignition.

"What time do you want me to pick you up?" He asked.

"I should be finished by eight. Where are you going anyway?"

"I told you , I got some errands to run."

"Why can't you just tell me?"

Michael held up his hand. "Look Maria, I'm not gonna fight about this. I just got some things to do."

"Fine." She said frowning.

"You better go, your late." He said.

She looked at him for a moment and then leaned over and kissed his cheek.

"Eight o'clock." She stated getting out of the car.

"Eight o'clock. I got it." He said and she turned and walked up to the back entrance to the club.

He watched her and saw Mark, her boss, walk up from the opposite direction. He smiled a big smart-ass smile at Maria and held the door for her. Michael scowled as they entered the building.

"I'm gonna zap his ass one of these days." Michael threatened to no one in particular.

He sped away from the club and stopped ten minutes later in front of the buliding he couldn't tell Maria about. He entered the building and picked up the package that was waiting for him.
