Title: Dreams Can Come True
Disclaimer: I own nothing
Category: Michael & Isabel
Summary: Isabel does get pregnant from the dreams in “Four Square”.
Authors Note: This story starts during “Max to the Max”. Liz was not kidnapped by Nasedo. Max and Tess aren’t having the dreams. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE GIVE ME FEEDBACK! I LOVE TO HEAR WHAT MY READERS THINK!
At the Crashdown Michael puts a glass of milk in front of Isabel.
“Michael, this can’t be.”
“I know. But why not?”
Max and Tess walk into the Crashdown and sit next to Isabel.
“You don’t look happy.”
Max tries to say something, but can’t.
She runs out the back door into the alley. Michael, Max, and Tess run after her. Michael grabs her arm and turns her around to face him. She tries to get out of his grip, but can’t. She can no longer hold back the tears. She falls apart into Michael’s arms. He holds her tight, not knowing what else to do.
Max just watches as Michael comforts Isabel. Suddenly he sees something between them that wasn’t there before. Love. But not brother-sister love. It was something else. Something more.
Isabel starts to calm down. She is latched onto Michael. She has never been so scared in her entire life. The only thing that is making her feel safe is the last thing she expected. Michael.
“Will you take me home?
He carries her to Max’s car and sits in the back with her. She refuses to let go of him so he just continues to hold her. When they get to her house he carries her to her room and lays down with her.
“Yeah. This is just really overwhelming.”
“I know, but I don’t want you to worry. Everything’s gonna be okay. I’ll take care of you, both of you.”
He puts his hand on her stomach.
She puts her hand on top of his.
“What about Maria and Alex?”
“Shh. Just rest right now. We’ll figure that out later.”
He pulls her closer and sooths her to sleep. Once she is asleep he quietly sneaks to the hall where Max, Tess, Liz, Alex, and Maria are waiting.
“How is she?”
“Better. She’s asleep.”
He sits on the floor and puts his head in his hands. Maria sits down next to him and puts her hand on his shoulder. He shrugs it off.
“Don’t touch me.”
He gets up and goes back into Isabel’s room.
Tess turns to Max.
“Can I use your phone?”
She goes to the kitchen to use the phone.
“Where are you?”
“I’ll be there in a few minutes.”
Michael is sitting next to Isabel’s bed, holding her hand. When he came back into the room she was having a nightmare, but when he took her hand it seemed to calm her. He knows that he hurt Maria’s feelings in the hall, but right now all he cares about is Isabel and his son. His son. He can’t believe he’s really going to have a son. And with Isabel. He never expected that, but ever since the dreams started he has felt a strange attraction towards her. Could he be falling in love?

Ed Harding goes to Max’s house and knocks on the door. Max answers it.
“Please, call me Nasedo.”
“Yes. Tess told me about Isabel. Where is she?”
He leads Nasedo to Isabel room. He still isn’t sure that they can trust him, but they need answers. For Isabel’s sake. She is still asleep when they come in.
“Michael, meet Nasedo.”
“Yes I am. Congratulations on your child.”
Isabel wakes up and is very surprised to see Ed Harding standing in front of her.
“What’s he doing here?”
“Isabel, this is Nasedo.”
“Hello. How are you feeling?”
He sits down next to her and reaches towards her stomach. She quickly moves away from him and closer to Michael.
“What’re you doing?”
“Just checking the baby. Making sure it’s healthy. If that’s alright.”
She nods, but stays close to Michael. Nasedo uses his powers to check the baby.
“Thank god! So, what’s gonna happen? How’s this gonna work?”
“Well, first of all the pregnancy will only last for a month.”
“Only a month?”
“That’s right. And I should warn you that because the baby will grow so quickly at times it may cause you some pain. But it is a completely normal thing.”
“That’s really all the out of the ordinary stuff. Just make sure you eat healthy and get plenty of rest. I’ll be back in a few days to check on you. I have some things to take care of.”
Nasedo leaves. Isabel puts her head in her hands.
“Are you okay?”
“I just have a headache.”
Alex is about to go to her, but Michael gets up on the bed behind her and starts massaging her temples. She closes her eyes and leans back into him. Alex quickly and silently leaves the room. Maria follows him. Liz is the only one who notices. She pulls Max into the hall.
“Max, what’s going on? How did this happen?”
“We’re not really sure. They had dreams about Isabel being pregnant with Michael’s child and then it happened.”
“What are they gonna do now? What about Maria and Alex?”
“I don’t think they’ve really thought about that yet.”
“Well, they need to. None of you even noticed that Alex and Maria just left.”
“I guess not. Liz, none of us know what we’re doing yet. Don’t worry. We’ll figure it out. Together. We always do.”
“If you say so.”
Tess watches them from Isabel’s doorway. She looks angry and sad at the same time. ‘There must be a way. I have to separate them.’

Isabel starts to feel sick and runs to the bathroom. Michael follows her. He is right behind her, keeping her hair out of the way and rubbing her back, as she throws up. When she’s done she falls back wards into him. He gives her a towel and holds her close. That is the only thing that seems to help.
“This should be an interesting month.”
“I guess so.”
“Michael, I’m scared.”
“Don’t be. I’ll take care of you. I’ll always be here for you. And so will Max.”
“I know. But that doesn’t change the fact that I’m 16 and pregnant with an alien baby.”
“Everything’s gonna be okay Iz. I promise.”
He pulls her closer, and then carries her back to her bed. As she drifts off to sleep she whispers to him.
“I love you Michael.”
Without hesitation he whispers back.
“I love you too.”
Tess interrupts Max and Liz.
“Max, I need to talk to you.”
“I’m a little busy right now.”
“Please. It’s important.”
“Fine. Liz I’ll be right back.”
Max and Tess go to Max’s room.
“What is it?”
He sounds very irritated.
“Max, what I’m about to tell you is not something you want to hear, but you need to hear it.”
“She’s not who you think she is.”
“What are you talking about?”
“She’s your enemy.”
“You’ll do anything to get your way won’t you? Liz is not my enemy!”
“I know you don’t believe me, but I’m telling you the truth.”
“You stay away me, and you stay far away from Liz!”
“Max, please listen to me!”
“No! I’m done listening to you!”
He leaves the room very angry.
Liz sees how angry Max is.
“Max, are you okay?”
“What did she say to you?”
“Nothing. It doesn’t matter.”
Alex is walking Maria home. They are both silent the whole way. When they get to Maria’s door she finally breaks the silence.
“Thanks for walking me home.”
“Do you want to come in?”
“No, I just wanna go home.”
“Okay. If you need anything give me a call.”
“I will. Bye.”
Alex walks home. He tries not to think about Isabel, but it doesn’t work. A few blocks later he breaks down. Why does she keep doing this to him? It’s not fair. He loves her and what does he get for it? Heartache and pain. It’s just not fair!

The next morning Isabel wakes up in Michael’s arms. He is already awake and looks like he’s been watching her.
“Did you sleep at all?”
“I just couldn’t. No big deal. I’ve gone with out sleep before.”
“Michael, what are we gonna do? I mean, are we gonna be together?”
“Do you want us to be?”
“A few days ago I would’ve said hell no, but lately I’ve felt something towards you that I’ve never felt before. I think I’m falling in love with you.”
“Good. Cause I think I’m falling in love with you too.”
“So we’re gonna give ‘us’ a try?”
“Good. What are we gonna say to Alex and Maria?”
“The truth. That we liked them, but we love each other.”
She hears her mother come up the stairs.
“Isabel? Are you up?”
“Oh god. Michael, get in my closet. If my mom finds you here she’ll kill me.”
He does as he’s told and gets in Isabel closet as Diane knocks on the door.
“Isabel? Can I come in?”
“Yeah mom. Come on in.”
“I just wanted to make sure you were up. Don’t want you to be late for school.”
“Of course not.”
“Are you okay?”
“I’m fine. Why?”
“You don’t look so good.”
“Mom, I just got up. Name one person that looks good when they first get out of bed.”
“Point taken. So you’re alright?”
“I’m fine mom. Honest.”
“Okay. Breakfast will be ready soon.”
Diane leaves and Michael comes out of the closet.
“What are we gonna tell them?”
“I don’t know. We’ll figure it out. Don’t worry.”
He puts his arms around her from behind and puts one hand over her stomach. Suddenly it starts to glow.
“What is that?”
He bends down in front of her and lifts her shirt to see what it is. It turns out to be a tiny glowing handprint.
“It’s him. It’s our son.”
He puts his hand over the hand print and connects with his son.
“He’s glad we’re together now.”
“Did he tell you that?”
“Not exactly. I could just feel it.”
“Here. You try.”
He puts her hand over the handprint and she feels the same thing he did.
“He is happy.”
She cups Michael’s face in her hands, leans down, and kisses him. At first it is a soft, quick kiss, but it soon becomes longer and more passionate. Michael stands up, without breaking the kiss, and pulls Isabel closer to him. They hear the door open, but still refuse to break apart until Max makes them.
“What are you two doing?!”
“Kissing. Do you mind?”
“Yes, I do. You two are brother and sister.”
“No, we’re not!”
“Are you saying you’re in love?”
“Yes we are.”
Isabel walks around Max and into Michael’s arms.
“Please tell me you’re kidding.”
“Why would we joke about this?”
“I don’t know what to say.”
“Can’t you just be happy for us Max? Please. We’re in love, and we’re having a child. We need your support.”
“You know you have my support. It’s just kinda weird seeing you two together. But I guess I’ll get used to it.”
Isabel gives him a big hug, and then goes to the bathroom to get ready for school. Max turns to Michael.
“Are you staying for breakfast?”
Alex and Maria are waiting for Michael and Isabel at the front door of the school and almost start crying when they see them walk in hand in hand. Michael and Maria go into the eraser room and Alex and Isabel stay outside.
Maria just stares at Michael for a few minutes, not knowing what to say.
“Are you two together now?”
“Just because of the baby?”
“No. Because we love each other.”
“We’re in love.”
“When did that happened?”
“Kinda this morning.”
She doesn’t know how to react.
“I’m sorry Maria. I didn’t mean for things to happen this way. I never wanted to hurt you.”
“Just answer me one thing. Did you ever even like me?”
“Of course I did. I liked you a lot.”
“But you love her.”
“Okay. Okay. I hope you two are very happy together.”
She quickly leaves before he can finish the sentence. He feels really bad about hurting her, but he had to tell her the truth. He loves Isabel. That’s just the way it is.
Alex and Isabel are silent for several minutes until Alex breaks the silence.
“Do you love him?”
“I guess that’s all there is to say.”
“I’m so sorry Alex. I do like you a lot. You’re a wonderful friend, but…”
“But that change the fact that you love him and not me.”
“Don’t be. I want you to happy, and as hard as it is to say, if he makes you happy then you should be with him.”
“Thank you for understanding. Can we still be friends?”
“Not right now. I still love you Isabel. It’s too hard to be your friend and nothing more. Maybe after a while I’ll be over you and then we can be friends again, but not now, not yet.”
He just walks away. Isabel starts to cry at the loss of one of her best friends, but when she sees Michael come towards her she knows it was worth it. She really loves him and she couldn’t deny her heart.

Michael keeps a close eye on Isabel during school. She notices, but doesn’t mind. She’s never seen him so concerned about anything. She thinks it’s sweet. She loves that she has finally found someone. At lunch they sit together, away from everyone else, including Max. It’s still weird for him to see them together, but they don’t care. They’d rather be alone anyway.
“What do you think we should call him?”
“Well, what about Michael Jr.?”
“I like it. Jake it is.”
Isabel starts to get up but falls back into Michael when she feels a sharp pain in her stomach.
“Isabel, what is it?”
“Jake. He’s growing. Nasedo said it might hurt, but I didn’t expect this!”
She can no longer stay standing. He sits down on the ground and holds her tightly, not knowing what else to do.
“Shh. It’s okay. It’s okay. Shh.”
She latches tightly to him. The closer he is the better she feels. After a few minutes the pain is gone.
“Yeah. I’m alright.”
She looks in Max’s direction. He is looking at her, but quickly turns away. She doesn’t understand. He saw her. He saw that she was is pain. Why wouldn’t he come to make sure she’s alright? Why didn’t he care? Michael helps her up.
“Are you sure you’re alright? Maybe you should go home and lay down.”
“I’m fine Michael. Really.”
“I want to tell my parents tonight.”
“But what are we gonna tell them when you have the baby a month later. They’ll never believe he’s eight months premature.”
“I know. We’ll tell them I’ve been hiding it, or maybe we could just tell them the truth.”
“Come on Michael. They’ll find out one day. Why not now?”
“You know Max will never go for it.”
“I don’t care. Michael I need to do this. I can’t keep this from them.”
“Okay. If it’s what you need we’ll do it.”
That night Michael comes over for dinner. Isabel is not speaking to Max, but he doesn’t understand why. When everyone is finished Isabel squeezes Michael’s hand to tell him that it’s time to talk to her parents.
“Mom, dad, I have something to tell you.”
“What is it sweetie?”
Neither of them knows what to say. She can tell her dad is getting angry.
“Who’s the father?”
Michael looks him straight in the eyes.
“How could you two be so irresponsible?! I can’t believe you! How can you ruin your lives like this?!”
Isabel stands up and starts yelling at her father.
“We are not ruining our lives! We love this baby, and we love each other!”
“Love isn’t enough Isabel! How are you two gong to support a baby?!”
“We thought you’d help us.”
“We can’t do that Isabel. We can’t support you on something that is wrong!”
“This baby is not wrong!”
She runs up to her room with Michael right behind her.
“I can’t believe them! How can they do this to me?! To us!”
Michael takes her in his arms to try to calm her. Max walks in the room.
“Why would you tell them now? What are they gonna think when you have the baby a month from now?”
“Don’t start with me Max. You can sit here and lecture me, but you can’t help me when I’m in pain? I know you saw me!”
“Michael seemed to have it under control.”
“You still don’t like the fact we’re together do you?”
“No, I think you’re moving too fast. You think this is love because of the baby, but it’s not.”
“Yes it is! I love Michael and he loves me, and if you can’t accept that then that’s just too damn bad! Let’s go Michael!”
He follows her out of the house.
“Let’s leave Roswell.”

“You really want to leave?”
“My family just disowned me. Neither of us have anything here anymore. Let’s go somewhere new. Somewhere where no one knows us. Somewhere where we can just start over.”
“You’re right. We need a fresh start. Let’s go.”
That night Isabel and Michael sneak into the Evans house to get Isabel’s things. They had gathered Michael’s things earlier that day. Isabel empties her bank account before her parents can close it and they get on a bus to California.
The next morning Liz comes over to see Max. He answers the door.
She can tell he is upset
“What’s wrong Max?”
“Isabel and Michael are gone. They ran away last night.”
“Mom and dad wouldn’t support them and I didn’t agree with them so they left.”
“We have to get them back!”
“We have to! Without them…”
Max gives her a weird look.
“Things just won’t be the same. They’re your family. You need them.”
“They’re not coming back. There’s nothing we can do.”
“We’ll find a way. We have to!”
He doesn’t understand why she wants them to come back so badly. She barely knows them. What’s going on?
“Liz, my dad isn’t here and my mom is really upset. I have to take care of her.”
“I understand. I’ll go. And don’t worry Max we’ll get them back somehow.”
She walks home, but she doesn’t know that Max is following her. When she goes into her room Max hides on the balcony. He sees her take a strange device out of the wall, just like Tess did at the library except there was no handprint. She presses a button on it and a hologram of a man comes up in front of her.
“Good to see you Klina. How is your mission coming?”
“It was coming along fine, but…”
“But Michael and Isabel are gone.”
“Rath and Vilandra. They left town and no one knows where they went.”
“You’re sorry?! Sorry is not acceptable Klina! I trusted you! I thought you of all people could bring down the royal four!”
“I will. I won’t fail you.”
“Let’s hope so. You may be my sister Klina, but I will leave you on that miserable planet if you do not complete your mission.”
“Don’t worry brother. I will. I already have Max, Zan right where I want him. The others shouldn’t be very hard. Tess, Ava is nothing, and Rath and Vilandra will come back. I don’t think they’ll last very long without Zan.”
“I hope you’re right, for your sake, and for the sake of our race. Bring them down Klina.”
“I will Kivar. Don’t worry. They’ll be dead very soon.”
Max can’t believe what he just heard. The love of his life is trying to kill him and his family. There’s only one person who will understand what he just heard. He quickly and quietly climbs down the balcony. It starts to rain, but he doesn’t care. He has to talk to her.
Tess hears someone knock on her door. When she opens the door Max is standing in front of her covered in rain.
“Max? Did you walk here in the rain?”
He can barely talk because he is out of breath from running so fast.
She gets him a towel so he can dry off.
“So, why did you come here? I thought you hated me.”
“You… were right. I overheard… a conversation between Liz and… someone named Kivar.”
“Kivar? He’s our worst enemy.”
“She’s his… sister.”
“I didn’t know she was that close to him.”
“How did… you know.”
“I could feel it.”
“I’m sorry… I didn’t trust you.”
“Don’t worry about.”
She sees that Max is shivering.
“Max you’re soaked. Come on.”
She takes his hand and leads him to Nasedo’s room.
“Get these wet cloths off.”
She helps him take off his shirt and pants. For a moment they just stare at each other, but they both get a little uncomfortable so Tess goes to the bathroom for another towel. She comes back and helps him dry off. Suddenly she feels his hand on the side of her face. She looks up at him. He slowly leans in and kisses her. Soon the kiss becomes deep and passionate, and long after it becomes more then a kiss. He doesn’t really understand how he can go from hating her to loving her so quickly, but being with her just feels so right that it doesn’t matter.

|SELFISH BUMP! FEEDBACK PLEASE!|

“Max, what are we gonna do about Liz, or Klina?”
“I don’t know.”
“Shouldn’t we call Michael and Isabel?”
“What do you mean gone?”
“They left town because my parents wouldn’t support them and I …”
“I yelled at them. I told them that they weren’t in love, they just thought they were because of the baby.”
He looks deeply into her eyes.
“Now I know I was wrong.”
“I’m sure they’ll come back.”
“I don’t think they will.”
“Well, even if they don’t, you still have me. You’ll always have me.”
He kisses her and suddenly they both get a flash of a beautiful little girl. Their little girl. He kisses her again and pulls her close to him.
“My parents are gonna kill me, but I can’t say that this is wrong.”
“So you’re happy?”
They hear someone come into the house and they quickly get dressed. Nasedo comes into the room.
“Hello Max. What are you doing here?”
“Tess and I are together now.”
“Good to hear.”
Tess puts her hands on her stomach.
“And I’m pregnant.”
He walks up to her and reaches towards her stomach.
She nods and moves her hands. Nasedo uses his powers to check the baby.
“She’s perfectly healthy. Which reminds me, how’s Isabel?”
“I wouldn’t know.”
“What do you mean?”
“She and Michael ran away. I got into a big argument with them and my parents won’t support them so they left.”
“Well, this is unexpected.”
“Is there anything you can do to find them?”
“I’ll do my best, but I can’t promise anything.”
“I will, but not yet. Right now I have to take care of the FBI. I’m going to replace their man in charge, agent Pierce, and destroy the special unit.”
“There’s something else you have to help us with first. My…”
He looks at Tess.
He looks back at Nasedo.
“Liz Parker is really an alien named Klina. She’s…”
Nasedo finishes the sentence.
“That’s right. Who is this Kivar?”
Nasedo has Max and Tess sit down and explains their past lives and present destinies.
“Wow. I never expected that.”
“I know it’s a lot to handle all at once, but you need to know. Now let’s go take care Klina.”
