Authors Note: This is for Jessie who just seemed to love this fic. I have the first 24 chapters already written. Lol' I just seemed to forget about this one, and well, after her nagging I decided to pick it up again! Let me know what you think.



Chapter 1




“Liz!” Max called.

She continued to walk without stopping to here what he had to say. Max grabbed her by the arm when she refused to acknowledge him.

“Let go of me Max. There is nothing left to be said. I slept with Kyle. Deal with it and stop trying to make me feel guilty!” Liz yelled.

“Why did you do it? I thought you loved me. I thought I meant everything to you.”

“It was dumb okay? You’re supposed to be with Tess, so I went back to Kyle. A normal guy. Someone that can give me a normal life. I may still have feelings for you but those too shall pass.” Liz could see all the hurt in Max’s eyes. How could I say that to him? She thought.

“Fine, go be with Kyle, but leave me alone. There is no longer a friendship between you and I.”

Max couldn’t believe he said that. This is the girl of his dreams. ‘Without her I’m nothing,’ Max thought to himself. But it has to be done. If she wants a normal life then friendship can’t happen between us either. Max left and Liz began crying. She quickly ran to Maria’s house.

“Maria! Maria open the door! I know you’re in there!” Liz yelled while pounding on her door.

“What is it? Liz, don’t you realize what time it is? It’s 2:20 in the morning! This better be good because I’m putting me beauty sleep on hold for this.” Maria explained. She saw tears form in Liz’s eyes and began to understand. “Oh sweetie, what happened?”

Liz explained everything that happened between her and Max that night. Everything she told him and his response to her actions. Maria gave Liz a tight hug and told her she could stay at her house.

The next morning at the Crashdown...

“Liz,” Maria called “I’m sorry to do this, but you need to grab the next table. My hands are full.”

Liz wondered why Maria would apologize for this until she saw who the customers were. Michael, Isabel, and Max were at a table. Michael and Isabel were talking while Max looked like he didn’t want to be here. I wonder why she thought.

“What can I get you guys?” Liz asked.

“Isabel and I will have a cherry coke” Michael replied. “Maxwell, what do you want?” He asked. Max didn’t reply so she got him the same thing.

When Liz returned with the drinks Michael and Isabel thanked her.

“I don’t want this.” Max said.

Isabel looked at Liz and noticed a hurt expression on her face.

“Max, don’t be rude. Take the drink. She gave it to you.”

“She can give me a damn drink, but not the truth? Or a good reason why she did what she did to me?” Max yelled back.

Liz began to lose it. How could she cause this much hurt to the one guy that truly loves her?

“Could you excuse us guys? I need to talk to Max alone.”

Isabel and Michael began to leave when Max got up as well.

“I think you should sit and stay Max, try to be grown up about this okay?” Michael told him.

Max sat back down. “What do you want now Liz? To tell me you never did love me? Or maybe you want to tell me how much Kyle means to you?” Liz grabbed Max’s hand and led him to her room.

When she turned around Max could see tears in her eyes. He wanted to tell her he was sorry and that he loved her very much, but decided against it.

“What did you want to tell me?” He asked.

“Look, I can’t go on like this. I need to tell you everything that happened.”

Oh great he thought. Not only does she leave me for Kyle, but she wants to tell me everything that happened too?

“Liz, I don’t really care, and don’t really want to know EVERYTHING that happened.”

Oh God, he thinks I want to tell him what happened between me and Kyle. I need to straighten this up here and now.

“Max, Kyle and I never slept together.”

“The hell you didn’t! I saw you two, in bed, together!” Max interrupted.

Liz began to tell him about future Max and how Michael and Isabel were killed. She told him how she pretended to sleep with Kyle because it was the only way she knew how to make him fall out of love with her. She told him how everything she said to him, about wanting a normal life with a normal guy was all a lie. That no matter what happened she loved him and him alone.

“I don’t believe it. This can’t be true. There is no future me, and I would never tell you to make me fall out of love with you no matter how old I get! Why do you have to keep lying to me Liz? We used to never keep anything from each other. My life was your life, and your life was my life.”

“Max, I-” She began.

“Save it, Liz. I don’t want to hear it.”

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

Not too long, I know. But what can I say? In the beginning I was lazy.

THANK YOU GUYS. CHAPTER 3 WILL BE POSTED MANANA. OR MAYBE LATER TODAY. DEPENDS ON HOW NICE I WANT TO BE. LOL' *happy*


Chapter 2.



Liz couldn’t take it any more. If he wasn’t going to believe what she said then she would show him just how much he meant to her. She grabbed Max and crushed her lips down on his. She could feel him trying to pull away.

“Don’t. Just let me show you what you need to see. Let me open up to you.”

Max began to kiss back. He didn’t know what he was looking for, but he knew it felt right. He felt a flood of images rushing through his head. He saw the future version of himself telling Liz to make him fall out of love with her. He saw Liz telling Tess how to act to make him come to her. He saw them getting married. He saw how much pain Liz was in doing what she did. And most importantly, he saw Liz and Kyle get into bed together. With their underwear still on. He pulled away from her and stared into her eyes.

“You did all that for us?” He asked.

“Yes, I can’t let anything happen to you guys. You mean everything to me. Michael, Isabel, and most importantly you. You are my world, the love of my life. There will never be another you no matter how hard I look.” Tears started to form in her eyes as Max wiped them away.

“Liz, I’m so sorry for the way I acted. I’m so sorry so calling you a liar and not believing in you. I just didn’t want to imagine my life without you. I love you more than anything else in this world, and I would die before I let anything happen to you.”

Liz began to cry again. She couldn’t help but think how hard things were going to be now. She did this to get his friendship back, but instead she made him love her even more. Max moved in to kiss her.

“Max, what are you doing? We can’t do this.” Liz said as she backed away from him.

“What do you mean? I love you, and you love me. There is nothing standing in our way now.”

“But there is Max. I told you what I did so you wouldn’t hate me anymore. That way we could be friends. Don’t you see? We can never be together. If we are then it will push Tess away.”

“Now would that be so bad?” Max asked.

“Yes it would be! Without her you guys aren’t as strong. Michael and Isabel would die. The world would come crumbling down. I can’t do this. I can’t be the cause of that.” Liz began crying harder then before.

“We will find a way around this. I won’t lose you again. I refuse to lose you again!”

“I’m sorry Max, I can’t do this. My friendship is all I can give you. No matter how hard it is we have to do this. Can you accept that?” Liz asked.

“No I can’t. I will find a way around this. And I will make you see that we can still be together. Like I told you before, I don’t care about my destiny or my planet or anything else. All I care about is you so just know this...I am coming for you Liz. Did you think I was playing around? You mean everything to me and I will win you back one way or another.” Max kissed her cheek and left the room.

Why does he have to make things so difficult? She thought to herself. Liz went back downstairs to find an agitated Maria approach her. She totally forgot she left her down there doing all of the work.

“Liz, where the hell were you?” Maria asked. “It’s been crazy down here! I’ve been serving so many tables it’s not even funny, and look! Would you look at this? A little kid even through his shake at me! First I lose my beauty sleep, and now I’m covered in an ice-cold chocolate shake! Things couldn’t get any worse!” Just as she said that the same little boy threw fries at the back of Maria’s head. “That’s it!” Maria yelled. “I’m going to kill that kid!” Maria was about to jump over the counter when Liz stopped her.

“I’ll tell you what Maria, you can go use my shower while I finish up the shift. I mean we only have an hour left anyways.”

As Maria turned and walked away Liz couldn’t help but laugh at the sight of her best friend. She was just too much. As she closed up the restaurant, Maria came walking down the stairs.

“Is that my dress?!” Liz asked Maria.

“Why yes it is, do you like it? I figured with the hell I’ve been through you wouldn’t mind...now would you?”

Liz looked at her and smiled. “I guess you’re right. Well, I’ll see you tomorrow. I think I’m going to head up to bed. I’ve had a really long day.”

“Liz!” Maria yelled “Aren’t you going to tell me what happened with Max?”

“I’ll tell you about it later. Not now. Right now I just want some much needed sleep. I swear if I have one more distraction then my head is going to explode.” Liz yelled back.

As she turned around Maria smiled and whispered. “Wish I could see the expression that’s going to be on that girl’s face when she walks into her room.”

Liz approached her door very slowly. She couldn’t help but think about Max. As she opened the door Liz gasped.

She saw dozens of red and white roses scattered all over her room. In the middle of her bed was a note. She picked it up and read it.

Liz, you are my one and only.
No matter what happens you, and I will be together in the end. That is a promise I intend on keeping. Without your love I am nothing. Hope you like the roses.
Love always and forever,
‘Max’

Tears began to form in Liz’s eyes as she let out a sob.

“Don’t cry.” Max said.

Liz jumped and turned around to come face to face with Max. “Max, you scared me! These are so sweet, thank you!”

Max turned on the radio and grabbed Liz’s hand. “Dance with me.”

They began to dance very slow, and very close. Liz could tell she wasn’t going to be able to keep her word and be just friends with Max. How could she even think she’d be able to? He meant way too much to her to just be friends. Max looked down at Liz and smiled.

“Liz,” Max began.

“Don’t speak.” Liz replied. She ran her hands through Max’s silky hair. “I love you Max. Don’t ever leave.”

“I love you too, and I would never be able to leave you.”

He leaned down and kissed her. It was a slow and gentle kiss. Liz opened her mouth and felt Max’s tongue jump onto hers. She gently massaged it with her own and knew she needed more. She lifted Max’s arms and took his shirt off. She kissed her way down to his chest. Max let out a groan. He lifted Liz up and set her down on the bed. He looked at her with such love in his eyes. Liz took off her shirt for him. He smiled and thought about how much Liz was opening up for him. He never expected her to act like this. He was loving every moment of it. Max kissed her passionately and moved down to her chest. He slid her bra off and threw it aside. Liz covered herself. She felt embarrassed.

“No need.” Max said, “I don’t know why you would want to cover yourself up. You are the most beautiful thing I have ever seen.”

Liz smiled and pulled him down to her. He began kissing her breast and massaged the other one in his hand. Liz let out a moan. She was eating this up. She began to undo his zipper and took off his jeans. She let out a giggle.

“What?” Max asked.

“Nothing” Liz replied. “I kind of think your boxers are cute!”

He looked down and noticed he was wearing his little green and blue alien ones. Oh my God! He thought. This is so embarrassing! He began to reach for his jeans when Liz stopped him.

“No don’t, I said they were cute. I didn’t mean for you to take it the wrong way. I love them.”

Max smiled and took off the clothes that were still on Liz. He gazed at her. Beautiful, he thought to himself. Liz could feel how much love Max had for her, and she felt the same way. She pealed Max’s boxers off of his body and threw them. She gazed down at him. He is so perfect, she thought to herself. She laid Max down and smiled.

“Liz, what are you up to?”

“Don’t talk, you will see soon enough.”

With that said she moved to the lower half of his body and began licking him up and down. He couldn’t hold it anymore. He began to lose control and grabbed the side of the bed to try and help him remain calm. She simply smiled and covered his shaft completely. She began moving her head up and down. She had no clue what she was doing, but figured she was doing something right if he was losing control like this. Max couldn’t hold it in anymore. He came right then and there. He was worried how Liz would take it. She swallowed and gave him a smile. Okay, who is she and what did she do with the real Liz Parker? He wondered. He never knew she could be like this. He grabbed her and flipped her over.

“Max, I need you. I want you inside me now.”

“Liz, are you sure? I mean there is no turning back once we’re done.” Max warned her.

“I know that. I love you so much and I want you to be the one.” With that said Max begun thrusting into her.

“Max!” Liz yelled over and over again. He went slowly not wanting to hurt her, but she insisted that he went faster. He loved this. He loved the fact that he was sharing this moment here and now with the love of his life. They both reached their climax after a matter of minutes. Max lay beside her, as she laid her head down upon his chest. They both said “I love you” and sleep fell upon them immediately.

When Max awoke he noticed Liz wasn't there. He got dressed and found a note in the back pocket of his jeans reading

Max,
I went for a walk. I needed to get away for a little bit. I will talk to you later.
Love always,
'Liz'


Max couldn't help but wonder if he did something wrong. Why else would Liz need to get away for a little bit? Did he rush things last night? He rushed to his car and drove to Maria's.

"Maria, Maria!" He yelled. Maria opened the door and realized it was Max.

"Max, don't you realize what time it is? It's 7:30 in the morning! Between you and Liz disturbing me early in the mornings, I‘ll come out with black circles under my eyes! Then I‘ll be grouchy and I‘ll be forced to hurt one of you. Just one day! Just one day I‘d like to be able to get a little beauty sleep in. Please!"

"Beauty sleep?" Max asked.

"Yeah, beauty sleep. You don't think I wake up looking this sexy without it do you?"

“Well, Maria, the truth is I’ve never seen you as sexy. That’s just a disgusting thought.”

Maria hit Max on the arm. Hard. “Okay, before you piss me off even more, why don’t you tell me why you’re here.”

"I‘m looking for Liz. Have you seen her by any chance?"

"Not since last night, why?" She asked.

"No time to explain, I’ll see you later!" Max yelled as he rushed to his car.

Maria shut the door, put her slices of cucumbers over her eyes, and went back to bed.

As Max was driving to Alex's, his car came to a screeching halt. There were people gathered everywhere in the middle of the street. He got out of his vehicle and ran to see what happened.

"Oh my god! Call an ambulance!" Someone yelled.

Chapter 3.



Max ran up to see who it was. Oh my god! It’s Liz! She opened her eyes and saw Max.

“M-Max?” She asked.

“Yes, I’m here don’t worry.”

“Stay right there miss, someone is calling an ambulance.” A man stated.

She gave Max a look and said “No, I don’t need an ambulance, I’m fine.” She got up slowly and went to Max.

“Miss, I think you should get checked out...” he began.

Liz turned to him and said “Look, I said I don’t need a damn ambulance and I meant it! Now leave me alone! My ride is here.” Everyone looked at Liz shocked and amazed. Even Max. She walked to the car, “Are you coming Max?” She asked.

“Um yeah, be right there.”

He turned around and walked over to the jeep.

“Would you like to tell me what’s going on? I wake up and find this note in my pocket, and then I go out looking for you, only to find you in the middle of the street passed out. Did I do something wrong?” He asked.

Liz looked up at him “No, you did nothing wrong. I’m so sorry if I gave you that idea. Last night was amazing. You mean so much to me. It’s just that when I woke up I couldn’t help but think that I just signed Michael and Isabel’s life away. I guess when I went walking I just passed out from all of these ideas roaming around in my head at once. That’s all.”

Max grabbed her and gave her a big hug. “Don’t ever scare me like that again! For a moment there I thought I lost you. I was so worried.” Liz smiled and they drove home together.

The Next Day....

I can’t believe this is happening! What am I going to do? Liz thought. I need to get out of here. I can’t face Max and tell him what I found out. How would he take it? Liz packed up a suitcase and went to her car. As she was about to pull out another car pulled up and blocked her in. Damn it! It’s Max. Liz got out of the car and began walking down the street.

“Liz!” Max called.

She didn’t answer or stop.

“Liz, what the hell is going on? Why won’t you talk to me?” Max ran and when he caught up to her he noticed she was crying. “Liz?” He asked puzzled. “Wha-what’s going on?”

Liz had to think of something. “Nothing. Umm, I...I need to get away. I can’t see you right now.”

“Liz? What’s going on? You said I didn’t do anything wrong and now you’re acting like you hate me.”

‘Hate me’ those words hurt. How could he think I hate him? Oh yeah, the way I’m acting she thought. She couldn’t stand the fact of him thinking she hated him, but she couldn’t tell him what was going on either.

“Just don’t make this any harder then it already is okay Max? I’m...I’m going to go stay at...at Kyle’s house for awhile.”

“At Kyle’s house?! So was this just some lie? To get me to sleep with you? Was this a game to you? Do you like seeing how easy it is for me to get hurt by you?” Max asked. No reply. “Answer me damn it! No, you know what? Don’t answer me. I’m done! Good-bye Liz. Have fun with Kyle.” He got back in his car and left.

Liz began to cry uncontrollably. Good going Parker. She thought to herself. The plan was to stay away from him for awhile. Not make him hate you again! Liz ran to Maria’s house. She rang the doorbell 10 times until Maria answered the door.

“Liz, what’s wrong?” She asked. Liz walked in and sat down.

“Maria, I did something...said something that I shouldn’t have. I had to get away from max and he asked me where I was going. If I told him I was coming here then he would have followed me, so I told him I was going to Kyle’s. He got upset and asked if this was all a lie to get him to sleep with me...a game. I hurt him so bad. I just needed to get away. I couldn’t tell him the truth. But instead he left hating me.” Liz broke down into tears again.

Maria hugged her. “Babe, I don’t mean to play 20 questions at a time like this but, oh well, here it goes. You’re sleeping with Max? Why did you tell him you were staying with Kyle? Of all people Kyle! And what couldn’t you tell him?”

“Yes I’m sleeping with Max, I already answered your second question and b-because I’m...”

“I’m? Just spit it out Liz.” Maria interrupted.

“Because I’m pregnant with his child okay?”

“You’re.... are you sure? And just how long have you been sleeping with Max, may I ask?” Maria asked.

“Yes Maria! I don’t wake up and say hey, I think I want to be pregnant today! I took a test...and I had a vision...well, sort of. In my dreams I saw Max and I together...in the future. I was in labor and he was by my side. You were delivering the baby because I can’t go to the hospital, I mean half alien here. When he came out a dark cloud filled the sky. All of a sudden this man barges in and smiles at me and Max. Then the dream cut off. I don’t know what’s happening, but I need to figure it out before I run and tell Max about it. And Max and I slept together for the first time yesterday. Don’t ask me what’s going on. Maybe this is how the alien in them works. I don’t know! I’m going to go sleep. I haven’t gotten much rest. Goodnight.” Liz went to Maria’s couch and laid down.

Liz’s dream....

“Maria! You have to deliver the baby!” Liz yelled out in pain.

“Me? Why me?” She asked.

“Because she can’t go to the hospital, remember that the baby is half alien.” Max replied.

“But why can’t Isabel, Alex, or Michael do it? They are here too!”

“Because Maria, we know you can do it. And have you seen Alex and Michael? They would pass out! And Isabel is helping me. Now just do it!” Max yelled out.

Maria finally gave in, and within 20 minutes she was handing Liz a beautiful baby boy.

“Umm Max?” Alex asked.

“What?”

“Look around. Once he left Liz’s body the sky started getting very cloudy and stormy.”

All of a sudden the door slammed open to Maria’s house. Thank god her mom was out of town, Maria thought to herself. A tall dark man entered the house and smiled at Max and Liz.

“Glad to see the baby is okay, it would have been a shame if I came here for nothing.” The man stated.

“Who the hell are you and what do you want?” Max yelled.

He had just got finished healing Liz from the pain caused by the labor.

“You mean you don’t know who I am? That hurts.”

He took off the heavy coat and mask and the gang realized that this person before them wasn’t a man! It was a she, and the she was Tess!

“Tess? What do you want?” Maria asked.

“You never were the bright one were you? I’m not one of you, not anymore. I knew these two wouldn’t be able to keep their hands off of each other! I’m you’re wife Max, not her! Can’t you see that? This is, and should be my baby! Not hers.”

Michael tried to use his powers to push Tess aside, but it wasn’t working.

“No use. You’re powers won’t do you any good. I disabled them. So one of us here has powers and the others don’t. How tragic.”

She ran up to Liz and took the baby. As she was pulling away Liz screamed and punched her across the jaw.

“Ouch! You bitch!” Tess yelled. “I’d be careful, next time a move like that could cost you your baby’s life!” Tess turned and ran out of the room.

As Max tried to follow he got pushed back. “Damn it!“ He yelled, “She has some sort of a force field over the house which won’t allow us to leave it! It will probably last 24 hours. Just enough time to let her skip town.”

Liz was crying uncontrollably while Max held her in his arms. A loud ‘bang’ occurred, followed by a flash of light. Everyone looked down to escape the brightness of it and when they looked back up they noticed Michael lying there on the ground.

“Michael? Michael!” Maria yelled as she ran up to him. “Oh my god! He doesn’t have a pulse!”

Maria was crying so much. There was a note on his chest. Isabel picked it up and read it

‘This is what happens when you try to use your powers on someone that’s stronger then you.’

“Damn it! I can’t heal him either! In here we are powerless!” Max yelled out.


“Liz, Liz, Liz!”

Liz woke up screaming.

“Liz what happened? You were yelling and crying in your sleep. What’s wrong?” Maria asked.

“We need to find Max now! Maria, he won’t talk to me so I need you to do me a favor.”

“Max?” Maria asked.

“This is he, may I ask who’s calling?”

“Max, this is Maria. I have a problem with my car and it won’t start. Could you come over and help me?” She asked.

“Yeah sure, I’ll be there in 10 minutes.” She hung up the phone and told Liz to hide in the other room.

Maria opened the door and invited Max in.

“Why are we in here? I thought you needed help with your car.”

“Max, we need to talk. What’s going on between you and Liz?”

“I don’t know. Not anymore. This is the second time she’s broken my heart. I give up. I’m not strong enough for this anymore.”

“I never meant to brake your heart Max.” Liz replied as she came out of the bedroom.

He looked up at her and began to leave.

“No, stay. We need to talk.”

“I don’t have anything to talk about Liz. Good-bye.”

“Max, if you truly love me, or loved me, then you will let me say what I have to say.”

“Fine, go ahead, I’m listening.” Max replied.

“Max, I never went to Kyle’s house. I came straight here.”

Max cut her off. “So you lied to me?”

“Please let me finish. I went to the doctor. Max, I’m pregnant with your child.”

Max’s face lit up. “Are you sure? But how? I mean we just...we just...yesterday,” Max managed to say.

“Yes, I’m positive. I didn’t want to tell you until I had everything figured out. I still don’t, but I hate not being with you. I hate the fact that you were mad at me. And I know we just slept with each other yesterday, and that this all doesn’t make any sense, but it must be the alien side of you.”

“Liz, I’m so sorry. I hate not being with you as well. What haven’t you figured out?”

“Well, I had a dream. More like a vision actually. Anyways, it takes place in the future. After Maria delivers our baby a dark cloud takes over the sky. Tess comes in and kidnaps our child. Michael tries to use his powers to stop her, but she disabled them. She was the only one there with any power. You try to follow her, but she has a force field over the house, which prevents you from doing so. After she leaves we hear a bang and see a bright light. Max, Michael is killed! She killed him and has our baby!” Liz began crying. “I just don’t get it. The future you told me that she was important to you guys. That without her the world would pretty much come to an end. If that’s true then why did she kill Michael? Why did she steal our baby?”

“I think I know what’s going on. And it’s not a vision. Come with me. We are going to get this taken care of now! You are pregnant. I could feel it when we touched. But the dream you had. It wasn’t real.”

“Max, what are you talking about?” Liz asked.

“You’ll see, follow me.”

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

Authors note: I know the whole Liz getting pregnant in a day doesn't make sense, but it will in about 5 or 6 chapters. Like I said...nothing is as it seems, and everything is happeneing for a reason. Just go with me on this one. Lol'

OKAY, PLEASE DON'T KILL ME FOR THIS CHAPTER. REMEMBER NOTHING IS AS IT SEEMS, AND EVERYTHING WILL BE CLEARED UP. IN THE MEANTIME YOU CAN IMAGINE WHAT MARIA AND MAX WILL TALK ABOUT. *happy*


Chapter 4.



Max took Liz to an old abandoned factory.

“Why are we here Max?” Liz questioned.

“Awhile back, when I caught you with Kyle I had the same dream. That I got you pregnant and I was so happy. Until I saw what happened during the labor. I couldn’t figure out what was happening. Then I was drawn to this place somehow and everything was cleared up. Liz, when something really devastating happens this thing places visions in our head to remind us that things could always get worse.”

“Then why did it happen to me Max? I’m not one of you.” Liz asked.

“I think it’s because you and I were joined as one. When that happened it knew you were carrying a part of me. So it wanted to show you, tell you, that things could get worse. It helps us get over things, our problems, quicker. That way we don’t dwell on them.”

“Let’s get out of here.” Liz said still not understanding everything that was happening. They drove back to Maria’s and knocked on the door.

“You guys! You don’t get it do you? I love you and all but...” Max cut her off

“We know...you need your beauty sleep. You sound like a broken record!”

Liz looked up at Max.

“You mean she told you the same thing too?”

“Told me? More like spelled it out for me.” Liz smiled and gave Max a kiss.

“Maria, do you think that maybe, just maybe, you sleep too much?” Liz asked.

“Liz, I don’t get enough sleep. Between you and Max over here waking me up every night, and listening to Michael’s crap I....” She was cut off.

“Did you say putting up with my crap?” Michael asked while walking out of her bedroom.

Max and Liz looked at each other in shock.

“Michael! I told you to stay in there!” Maria yelled.

“Why? I’m not in trouble, I didn’t do anything wrong! Besides, what if I wanted to say hi to Maxwell and Liz?”

“I think I know why you’re always so tired now!” Liz laughed.

“I think we’re going to go to my house. My parents are out of town so we’ll be fine.” Max stated. He and Liz got back into the jeep drove to his house.

“Max, I think I’m just going to head home.” Liz said as she got out of the vehicle.

“Why? Is something wrong?” He asked.

“No nothings wrong. I just haven’t spent much time with my parents, and I don’t want them to think something’s up.” Max drove Liz home and went back to his house. Liz went upstairs and sat down on her bed.

“Liz, baby, you up there?” Sean called.

Liz now remembered why she felt so guilty. Sean climbed up to her window and let himself in.

“What’s wrong?” He asked.

“Nothing’s wrong, but I did something terrible.” She stated.

“What’s that?” He asked.

“Sean, I cheated on you with Max.”

He looked at her and replied. “That’s all right we can work things out, you don’t plan on staying with him do you?” She liked the way Sean was so understanding.

“No, how could I? I don’t love him. I love you.”

The next morning at the Crashdown Cafe...

“Liz how are you?” Max asked as he leaned in for a kiss.

Liz stepped back and replied. “I’m fine, how are you?”

“Liz, what’s going on? Why won’t you let me kiss you? Or touch you for that matter?”

“Because Max, it’s wrong. I’m with Sean. I cheated on him to be with you. He came back into town yesterday. I can’t do this to him anymore. I love him.” Max looked at her with a hurt expression on his face.

“Liz, what are you talking about? You were never with Sean. As a matter of fact, you pretty much despise him.”

Liz slapped Max at what he just said.

“I do not despise him! He is the love of my life! He went out of town a few weeks ago, and I guess I was just lonely. He knows what I did with you, but he’s willing to forgive me. We can still be friends if you like, Max.”

“What? Friends? Liz, I love you. So tell me what were you doing with me then? Using me? Just out for a good time because your ‘boyfriend’ was out of town?” Max began to get teary eyed and left. How could she do this to me? He thought.

Maria came in and asked what that was all about.

“Max just thinks I’m in love with him.”

“But you are Liz, what’s going on?” Maria asked.

“Nothing’s going on! Why does everybody think that I’m in love with Max Evans?”

“Probably because you are, and have been for the longest time. Liz, read your diary. Do you want that spelled out for you? You l-o-v-e Max.”

“No Maria, I think you’re wrong. I love Sean DeLuca.” Liz said joyfully.

“Sea...Sean DeLuca? Are we talking about the same Sean here?” Maria asked.

“Yes, you should know him pretty well, he is related to you.”

“Um yes, thank you for clearing that up. As if I didn’t know that already.” Maria replied sarcastically.

“And what’s this about my diary?” Liz asked. She pulled it out and opened it up. “Look, it says right here that I love Sean. And here. And here.” Liz pointed out as if that cleared up everything.

Maria grabbed her diary and checked it out. She wasn’t lying! How was this possible? Maria thought. She showed this to me just the other day and it was filled with juicy details about Max, not Sean. Something was wrong. She took Liz’s diary and left the Cafe.


At Max’s house 10 minutes later...

“Hi Isabel, is Max here?” Maria asked.

“No, he went out to pick up some food. To tell you the truth I’d expect Liz to show up here with another lame excuse as to why she’s been acting the way she has. Not you.”

Isabel invited Maria in and they began talking.

“Isabel, I think something’s wrong with Liz.” Maria began.

“You’re just now noticing?”

“Isabel, I’m serious. One minute she’s telling me how much she loves Max and wants to spend the rest of her life with him. Then the next minute she’s into my disgusting cousin! And what’s weirder? Her diary is changed. Just the other day it was filled with information about your brother. And how much she loves him. Now it talks about Sean. And how they have been dating for a year. It doesn’t add up.”

“Let me see that.” Isabel said while grabbing the diary. “Oh my God! You’re right!”

“And you thought I was lying because?”

“Nothing. We need to tell Max this!” Isabel exclaimed.

“Like he would listen to what I have to say about Liz. He hates her right now.”

“He would if I do the talking. Just trust me.”

“Isabel, I’m home!” Max yelled as he walked through the door.

Isabel and Maria walked into the kitchen and sat down.

“What do you want Maria?” Max asked.

“Well nice to see you too.”

“Well, you guys aren’t exactly my favorite people right now.” Max explained.

“Well thanks, I welcome you into my home anytime of the day and this is how you say hi? I think I’ll just leave and forget what I was going to tell you. Go to hell Max!” Maria yelled as she picked up her stuff and headed for the door.

“Maria, wait. What were you going to tell me?” Max asked.

“Screw it. I’ll help Liz by myself.”

“Now Liz is in trouble? Can’t she ever just stay put? I swear I will never understand women!” .

“Max, you need to hear what I have to say. This is all pissing me off. She is my best friend so don’t give me this crap okay? Now we can do this two ways. One you sit there while I talk and all goes well, or two I kick your ass and talk to you then. Either way you’re hearing what I have to say!” Maria yelled at the top of her lungs.

Max sat down. “Please, continue.”

Maria smiled and grabbed the diary.

“Thanks for letting me do the talking Maria.” Isabel said.

“Anytime!” Maria replied sarcastically.

Yay! First I update Secrets, and now I update Chances. Am I on a role or what? Lol' I promise to update at least once every weekend for both of my fics. This is a bit short, but you know me and stopping at certain parts. I hope you guys like it and the next chapter will be out tomorrow. This is for Ria who kept on I.M'ing me for a new part. I love ya girl!




Chapter 5.



“Okay, Max I have a lot of stuff to say and not all of it’s going to make sense. Not all of it is going to be stuff you want to hear either. But if you love Liz then you will listen to it all.”

“Why does everyone say that?” Max asked.

“Say what?”

“The ‘if you love Liz then you will listen’ thing.”

“Because it’s true. And in this case if I didn’t say that then you might not let me finish.”

With that said, Michael walked through the door.

“Get the hell out of here!” Maria yelled as she threw the remote control at him.

“Why? It isn’t your house.” Michael shot back.

“Because I have to talk with Max and Isabel alone.”

“Whatever.” Michael replied as he left.

“What was that all about?” Isabel questioned.

“Long story. I will tell you after I tell Max what I need to.” Maria turned to face Max. “Now, we all know Liz loves you.” Maria began when she was rudely interrupted.

“She has an odd way of showing it!” Max said as Maria hit him across the face. “Ouch! What was that for?” He yelled out in pain.

“I told you to listen! Now don’t pull that again!” Maria couldn’t believe what she just did but it seemed to work! “Now, Liz has been in love with you for as long as I can remember. She would rather die then live a life without you in it. Then all of a sudden she’s in love with Sean, who she could barely stand. What’s weirder? Her diary was filled with juicy details about you just a week ago. Today it’s filled out with crap about her and Sean and how they’ve been dating for a year now.”

Max took the diary and looked at it.

“You’re right, and that doesn’t make sense. A year ago she and I were still together. We need to find her now.” Max grabbed his car keys. “Maria you come with me. Isabel, you stay here in case anyone comes looking for us.”

Maria rolled her eyes. “One minute you hate her, and the next minute you love her. Would someone please make up their mind? I’m tired of feeling like we’re all apart of some twisted dating game here.” Maria mumbled.

Max and Maria drove to the Crashdown where they found Liz waiting for Sean.

“Liz, we need to talk.” Max yelled out to her.

“Sorry guys, I’m waiting for Sean.”

“Liz, please come with us. Sean will understand.” Maria cut in.

“No, I don’t want to! I already cheated on him with this guy and I don’t feel like standing him up right now either.”

Maria looked at Max in disbelief. Liz got up and began dancing as if she were in some Britney Spears “Oops I Did It Again” video.

“What is she doing?” Max asked.

“I have no clue. She’s been acting like a clown since yesterday. She even came to work wearing nothing but her under clothes!”

Max looked at Liz and back at Maria. “So what are we going to do? She won’t come with us.”

“Max I have an idea, but whatever you do don’t get pissed off.”

Before Max could object Maria hit Liz over the head with a frying pan.

“Maria! What the hell was that for?” Max yelled as he ran over to an unconscious Liz.

“Don’t argue. She’s knocked out and will wake up within a few hours. Meanwhile we can take her wherever we want to so we can talk. Did you have a better idea?”

“Well, no I didn’t, but she’s going to kill you when she wakes up.”

“Not when she wakes up. When she comes back to her senses. And when she does you will just explain to her why I did what I did.”

“Me? Why me?” Max asked.

“Because I had to go through with hitting her. I mean if it were someone like Michael then I would have loved it. But it was my best friend. That was harder then hell!” Max saw how agitated Maria was so he agreed.

They drove Liz back to Max’s house. Max carried Liz through the door and Isabel asked what happened.

“Just don’t ever piss this girl off okay?” Max replied pointing to Maria. Michael walked up behind her and gave her a hug.

“Michael! Get the hell away from me!” Maria yelled. When he didn’t move she punched him in the stomach, pushed him outside, and locked the door.

“Max, you put Liz down on the couch and watch her. Maria and I are going to go talk about what the hell just happened.” Isabel stated.

Isabel and Maria walked to the back room.

"Maria sit, explain what's going on. I thought you and Michael were doing fine. What happened?"

"Well, things started going wrong after Liz and Max caught him at my house. When the two left he said we needed to talk. I told him okay, you know, no problem. He then told me that he loves me and everything but was just out for a good time. That what we shared didn't mean anything to him." Maria started crying.

Isabel hugged her and replied. "Maria, you slept with him didn't you?"

Maria nodded her head.

"That's why. Michael has never been in a relationship. He told me how much he loves you. He's just scared of losing you."

"Are...are you sure?" Maria asked.

"Yes Maria, I don't have a hearing problem. The boy is head over heels in love with you."

Maria smiled. "Oh no, and I just treated him like crap in front of everyone too. Would you guys mind if I left?"

"Go ahead. Good luck!" Isabel called off as Maria ran out of the house.

"How is she doing?" Isabel asked Max as she went back up front.

"Fine, I think." Just as he said that Liz began to wake up.

I so love you Roswellluver! I saw your post on Secrets, and then over here. I was like dang! Fast! Lol

Ria,

Senior year is not a breeze. Okay, 5 of my 6 classes won't be difficult. But Journalism 2? I am the editor in chief for the newspaper, so I have to do the lay out, assign stories, edit them, and put them in the paper perfectly. I also have to keep up on a lot of stuff so it's interesting. not to mention the fact that we put of a paper weekly. Blah! Then, on top of that, I am volunteering at the Make A Wish Foundation, and come December, I'll also be volunteering at Opportunity Village for their anual Christmas thing. I just hope I get some rest in. Lol
