Part 1

Liz looked around her room feeling very lost and alone. Her parent’s Funeral is tomorrow, and Jim Kyle and Tess were moving into the tiny apartment above the Crashdown. Max Isabel Michael and Maria were helping them move in. Liz hated the fact that she would have to live with the one person she hated. Liz’s parents left her the Crashdown. She sighed as she scrambled to look for pictures of her and her parents or just some of her parents. All she could find was pictures of Alex, who she missed now more then ever. She still hadn’t found out what really happened and the Roswell Sheriffs department called it a suicide. Liz new better so did everyone else who actually knew Alex. Lately she had been trying to figure out what really happened to him, and she had vowed to everyone that she would find out what really happened. Finally Liz gave up and sat on her bed. When Alex died Liz promised herself that she wouldn’t cry not until she found out what really happened to Alex and now it’s been a little over two months and still nothing.
”Liz?”
Liz walked to the door and unlocked it letting Maria Michael and Isabel into her room.
“Liz, are you ok?”
Liz looked at Isabel then to what use to be her room. It now looked like a hurricane hit it.
“Yeah…I was looking for some pictures of my parents, but all I could find were..”
“Pictures of Alex?”
She nodded. Maria walked over to Liz and put an arm around her shoulder.
“Liz it’s ok to cry, you lost your parents. And now with the Valenti’s moving in it has to be hard. I mean I cried when I found out your parents died.”
Liz shook her head and sat on her bed.
“I cant, I cried enough when future max….”
She looked at Maria who knew she said to much, and now Michael and Isabel would want to know what she was talking about and she isn’t suppose to tell anyone, and she had already told Maria.
“Liz, what are you talking about?”
Maria looked at Michael and then to Isabel and shook her head.
"Nothing,"
No one dared to press the topic right now. The whole max thing was the worst thing anyone could bring up. Tess, without knocking, opened the door and walked in.
"Liz, Jim wants to talk to you about the whole crashdown thing."
She smiled her sweet smile and shook her head, not believing that this was going to be her life from now on. Slowly she stood up following everyone out of her room, glancing back remembering the conversation she had with her parents, she smiled a bittersweet smile then walked out of her room turning off the lights and closing the door behind her. Liz walked over to the table where Jim was sitting and sat across from him.
"How are you holding up?"
She shrugged.
"I’m ok,"
He looked at her, remembering how she looked after Alex had died. She looked like she hadn't been sleeping and she had that look in her eye like she knew there was something more behind all of this and she was going to figure it out.
"I figured that we would keep the crashdown closed for a one or two weeks, that way it'll give you time to get all the school work you missed caught up, then we'll open it and You can mange it or whatever that sound good?"
Liz nodded, realizing how hard this had to be on him, as well as on her.
"Yeah,"
She stood up, and looked at all her friends.
"I'm going to go and try to get some sleep so I can at least go to school to get all my assignments."
She looked at everyone except for max and Tess, Maria had told her that Tess told Isabel about them sleeping together, and it made things for Liz harder. She went into her room closing the door behind her and locking it not even bothering to turn on the lights. She turned on her stereo and listened to her Sheryl Crow I shall believe which had been on repeat for the longest time. She went into her bathroom to change and brush her hair. When she came out she turned off her stereo and climbed into bed closing her eyes hopping she could get some rest.

"Liz, honey wake up.."
Liz opened her eyes to see max leaning over her. He kissed her on the cheek lighty. She smiled looking around the room it was large and there was a window over looking a lake or pond or something, but she turned her attention back to max who was smiling.
"Sleep well?"
She nodded still unsure of where she was. Max started to talk about some sort of wedding ceremony, but Liz wasn't really paying attention, she heard the last of what he said, but that was it, when he left the room she stood up and noticed she was in a very nice night gown, it was light purple and it came down to her ankles, it was long sleeved, which had a slit down the whole arm which was parted the entire way down. She looked into the full length mirror that was a few feet away. Then walked over to the closet, which was huge, and noticed that all that was in the closet was a bunch of dresses some fancier then others. After she got dressed she and max were suppose to do something but she couldn't exactly remember what it was, but they ate breakfast and just as they finished someone came running into the room.
"Khivar has attacked the palace,"
Liz sat up in her bed, not realizing that she woke up screaming and when suddenly everyone appeared in her room, she was a little freaked out. Kyle was the frist one to get to liz and he sat on the bed next to her.
"Liz you ok?"
she nodded not sure if she should tell them or not.
"Yeah. Just a nightmare I'm fine."
Kyle looked her in the eyes and she returned his stare, not even bothering to acknowledge max.
"Come on, Kyle’s got it under control and I still dont understand the Biology..."
Liz had to bite her lip to keep from saying anything. It was as if that one dream had awakened some deep hatetrad for her.
Everyone had left it was now just Kyle and Liz. Liz knew she was safe with him, she could feel it.
"Ok Liz, give it up, what is with you and tell me nothing I am your friend and I can tell when something is wrong.."
"you mean other than my parents dying and Tess moving in to my home flaunting her relationship with max in front of my face ever single day?"
Kyle looked at her not really expecting her to be mean, when all he was trying to do is help.
"I'm sorry Kyle, I didn’t' mean it like that. I'm just so lost right now…and in times like this I'd turn to max and now its going to be hard to you know?"
He nodded
"Well you always have me to come to if things ever get to be too much, I know I'm no Alex or Maria, but I will always be here for you."
he gave her a lop-sided grin.
"Plus you know we did sleep together"
Liz picked up a pillow and hit Kyle in the head laughing at the look on his face.
"Oh…no you did not just do that Parker."
"what are you going to do about it Kyle?"
He smiled and reached for a Pillow and within seconds they were having a pillow fight. They went on like that for a little over a half our, then kyle grabbed her pillow out her hands and looked at her.
"What was the dream about?"
Liz sighed her smile disappearing quickly.
"Kyle, it was just a bad dream, I dont really remember it anymore.."
He nodded standing up and placing the pillows back where they were.
"Night Liz, try to get some sleep."
He kissed her on the forehead and turned the light off leaving liz in her room alone.

A/N hello all! thanks for the wonderful feedback and keep it coming, but bare with me because school starts tomorrow (blach!) and I may not be able to update every day or every otherday, but in the meantime here is part 2!

Part 2

Tess and Max were sitting on the couch, Tess was sitting in between Max’s legs, holding the biology book while max explained the problems. Kyle shook his head then went into the kitchen where his dad was.
"How is she?"
Kyle shrugged.
"Not ready to talk about it that’s for sure."
His dad sighed.
"Kyle give her time she just lost her best friend a few months ago, and in my opinion never really accepted it, and now her parents died, she'll talk, when she is ready too though..."
Kyle nodded. Then looked to Tess and Max, who both had fallen asleep. He shook his head
"And I never thought that Max would break Liz’s heart...but I guess people change huh?"
Valenti just looked at kyle not understanding what he meant. Kyle turned around to face his dad again.
"I'm going to go to bed, night dad"
"Night kyle"
Kyle walked down the hallway and into one of the rooms closing the door.
****
Liz slowly opened her eyes. She realized that she wasn't in her room anymore she was in was a little bit bigger but not by much, and she sat up noticing there were like ten people walking around. One of them looked at her and smiled slightly.
"She's awake"
"Where am I?"
"You are safe your majesty"
Liz was now confused.
"Who are you?"
They all looked at her, she could tell that this worried them.
"Where is Max?"
"He’s out in helping protect the palace from Khivar.."
Liz got out of bed her bare feet touching the cold marble floor, but she didn't care, she was out of the room that she was in, and as she ran she could feel that max was in trouble and some how she new where he was. She stopped when she got in the throne room.
"LIZ!" she turned around to see Khivar standing about ten feet away from her and she froze, not knowing what to do only knowing that she could die. Max ran as fast as he could. And jumped in front of her just as Khivar was going to kill her, and instead of killing her, he killed max. Once he relized this he quickly disappeared, leaving Liz and max alone
"max?"
She looked down at him his eyes were barley open. She knelt down besides him
"Max, please, dont leave me.."
"I…Love...you..."
Liz looked at him and knew he was gone, she started sobbing laying her head on Max's chest.
"MAX!!!"
Max opened his eyes and slowly moved Tess so she wouldn't wake up. Max slowly walked into Liz’s room, to find her sitting on her bed, Knees to her chest rocking herself back and forth.
"Liz?"
She turned to look at him as he closed the door.
"What’s wrong?"
"Nothing, I'm fine max..."
She didn't want to tell him what was really going on, she didn't want to tell anyone that she wasn't normal. She never was...
"Liz, you were screaming my name.."
"it was a nightmare, I'm fine really.."
He looked at her, wondering what was really going on inside her head. Max sighed He knew that he gave up his right to comfort her and be there for her when she needed him too. He started to walk towards the door, and Liz knew that she needed him to be with her, if she wanted to sleep without dreaming. In his arms was the only place she ever really felt safe, and if she let him walk out now, she may never get the chance to be in his arms again.
“Max…wait…”
He turned around and looked at her, still confused a little bit.
“If I Told you that I needed you to sat with me, until I fall asleep and Not ask any questions…could you do it?
Max looked into her eyes and for the first time in his life he saw how scared and alone she was. Slowly he made his way over to her bed, as she started to lay down, he laid down next to her, and gathered her into his arms and softly rubbed her back and listened to her breathe. She didn’t fall asleep for a while, but she lay there, trying to gather the right words.
"I'm scared..."
"Scared of what?"
"I'm alone now"
Max looked at her for a moment than gently placed a kiss on her forehead.
“Liz you aren’t alone, you Have Maria, you have Isabel Michael me and kyle…”
she sighed, he was right in a way. And then she closed her eyes.
“I miss Alex”
”Me too…”
And after that he could hear her breathing become even and steady and he knew she was asleep so slowly he closed his eyes and let himself to fall asleep.
