Authors Note: Thanks for all your feedback!! In a slight change to the challange, the children will be Isabel's children rather than Max's! And I know this part is short but its just for the letter purposes!

Part 1

*Six months ago...*

Dear miss Parker,

I am writing to you in reponse of your letter of application to be a teacher to Princess Isabel's children. We looked through your resume and phoned your previous employers, and due to what we have found we are pleased to offer you the job. It will include free accomidation in the palace as well as an assistant to help show you around the kingdom. Unlike our previous staement the job will start in 6 months rather than 1 year, for young Prince Adrian is advancing much faster than we had antispiated. Your job description will include math, english, and Earth history. What else you teach will be up to you. The three children that you will be teaching are Prince Adrianwhom is 4, Prince Lesley whom is 8 and Princess Piper whom is also 8. We are looking forward to you arrival here on Antar,
Your faithfuly,
Prince Michael
King's second in command


"Well I guess I'm here." One Elizabeth Parker thought to herself. The shuttle she had been sitting in for the last 3 days had found its destination: Antar. It was here that Liz was going to leave behind her heart ache and pain behind on Earth ans start a new life for herself...

Ok so here is part 2!!!! Hope you like it

Part 2

Upon arival at the castle, in the north section of the planet Antar, Liz was greeted by Princess Isabel, her husband Alexander and their 3 children. Liz looked at them, 'oh they look so cute together. I wish I grew up in a famil like that. All I had was.... never mind, I should stop thinking about it.'.

"Hewwo Miss Ewizabew. My name is Adwian and it wice to weet wuo." The youngest child Adrian bowed to Liz. He walked up to her and took her hand. Liz thought it was the sweetest thing imaginable, and held his hand tight. He walked Liz up to his mother and father "Wook how awived mummy. Its miss Wizze. She's gonna teach me about Warth."

"You meen Earth honey. She kneeled down to wisper in her sons ear. He began giggling and ran to stand with his brother and sister. Isabel gave Liz a firm handshake. "Welcome to Antar. I hope your journey here was acceptable." Liz thought she sounded like a formal school master. Alex interupted

"Izzy honey relaxed, she's not here to give a report on Antar roads, all though I still prefer my ones back home on Earth." Isabel gave him a nudge in the ribs, whilest Liz was shocked.

"Your from Earth? I didn't know that!"

"Yea, I'm a prince from England. I met Isabel on a confence here on Antar, and it was love at first site! And I never looked back." He looked at Isabel and to Liz he seemed lost in her eyes. Liz felt as if she was intruding.

"I'm just gonna show my self around." Isabel turned to look at her.

"Your room is 3rd on the right on the 3rd floor if you take the elivator."

"Thank you. I can see I'm gonna love it here."

*20 minutes later...

Liz came running down the stars and bumped into Alex

"Woooo, wheres the fire????"

"I hate it here. I can't believe that man!!!!"

"What happened Liz? It can't be that bad! Come on tell me what happened!"

"Well you see it all happened when I bumped into this man with golden brown eyes....

Hehe I'm gonna leave it there for all you readers. Aren't I evil!

Well what ya know I have the time to post a new part!!! Thanks for all the wonderful feed back. I haven't been expecting so much for this fic!!!!!

Part 3

* 20 minutes earlier

'Oh my, its beautiful here. I'm gonna love it here!' Liz was thinking to herself. After dropping her stuff briefly in her room, she decided to take a walk along the many hallways in the castle. There were many beautiful pictures of Isabel and Alex as well as pictures of a blond haired pixie and another brown haired man that Liz didn't know. But in all of them they were painted in such a way that they brought love instantly to Liz's heart, and wondered who had painted them. In fact she was so ingrossed in the painted, that she didn't notice a young man looking stright at her. Liz ended up bumping into the young man.

"Oh my I'm so sorry. I didn't see you there, I was so ingrossed in these wonderful painting!" Liz looked up into the man eyes and noted that they were so soulful and deep that Liz in fact felt herself drowing in them.

"I take it your the new cleaner. Well once you've finished looking at the painting you can dust them." Liz look at the man in suprise. No way was she the cleaner!

"I think you've made a mistake I'm not..."

"Of course your the cleaner, I mean look at your clothes, they are definatly raggy old clothes for cleaning!" Liz couldn't believe her ears!

"Excuse me, I don't know who you think you are, but I am the new teacher, not the cleaner! Now if you don't mind!" Liz tried to get past, but the argonent man in front of her wouldn't move out of her way.

"Say it!"

"Say what????"

"Please. It is always poliet to say please when trying to get past another being." She couldn't belive it. The cheek of this man.


"See now that wasn't so hard. I'll see you later miss." And with that the man walked of. This went running down the stairs so angry and when Alex asked explained everything.

"Um... Liz ya don't wanna piss that man off!" Alex warned

"Well why not?"

"Because if I think its who you say it is, you've just had your first encounter with King Max...."


Hope ya like *wink*

Well I've updated a day early. I most likely won't update this weekend coz I'm not at home till sunday afternoon, but then I'm going out with my friend coz she is having an american exchange student for the week! Oh and thanks for the great feed back.

Part 4

For the next few days there was no sign of King Maxwell, which made Liz relifed. She was dreading another encounter with his loardship. They had sat to dinner that evening and he kept making rude comments to Liz all night. Liz heard Isabel shoting at him afterwards! Alex informed her that he was at a conference in the west boarder of Antar, to settle a dispute between the east and west. He would be gone for a week. Alex also happened to mention that Max's girlfriend might pop in whilest Max was away, and although Liz didn't pick up on his tone of voice, she could tell by the words he used, the girl was bad news!

"So whats her name and what is she like? If she's dating king dearest, she must be insane!" Liz asked Alex whilest sitting in the apple orchard. This was Liz's favorite place in the whole of the castle and its ground. The leaves were just starting to fall and to Liz it was beautiful. It reminded her of better times at home, unlike most of the hell she went through as a child...

"Liz hello..." Alex was waving a hand in front of Liz's face. She noticed she had spaced out for a few moments.

"Sorry Alex what did you say. I was just thinking about something."

"Anything I can help with?" Liz just shook her head, "Oh ok then. Well her name is Tess. And she is an evil bitch if I ever did see one! She's been dating Max for about 5 years. Before that he was such a kind and gentle souls. He was a fantatic artist. He was the one who painted the picture upstairs that yo like so much!" Liz look shocked,

"But he seemed so cold to me. Specialy at dinner! I can't believe he said I looked like an earth hoar!" This was one of the many distasteful things Max had said to Liz at that faithful dinner! "Surely someone that mean couldn't paint such wonderful art!"

"Well when Tess came into his life Max changed. She convinced him to stop painting saying that it was childish. Everything that Max loved, Tess began talking him out of it. Than 2 years ago, Max and Isabels parent died in a car crash. Max blamed himself saying that if only he had been on time rather than 10 minutes late, that they would still be alive. And ever since he's been a cold heartless shell of his former self. The only time he looks happy is with the kids. They adore him and he loves them to bits! But to Maria, Michael and us, theres no way he would open up to us!"

"Poor Max! And um... who's Michael and Maria?"

"Michael is Max's second in command and Maria's his wife. There like total opposites and always fight, which is so funny! But they are so in love! Just like me and Izzy. Maria is my best friend in the whole world, well expect for Isabel of course. You'll love her. They currently live in the south but are moving back up here soon."

"I can't wait to meet her! But I don't want to meet Tess!"

Hope ya like it. I'm thinking that gives some insite into Max!

Thanks for all the feedback. This part is short, but will give some insite into Liz

part 5

Liz's dream

Running through a field of white roses, freedom all around, no longer trapped, birds flying all around.

'Its coming you know.' Whats coming who is in my dream?

'Death, pain, destruction. You cannot escape it!' I can! I am here. I'm free!

'You ran, you fled, but he will follow, he will come for you. Love cannot save you, and hate cannot protect. Your destiny is in death your future is in pain.' NO!! I left the pain. I'm far away, I ran to far for him to find me!!!

Suddenly Liz's dream transforms into a picnic. Sitting with her is Max...

"Sandwiches are a funny thing. I mean there is no sand in them!"

"Why are you here Max?"

"To save you, to warn you, to protect you!"

'Love will not save you!'

"You cannot save me, love will not save me."

"It will. It will revive you. You are dead to the world. He punished you, he let you die and slow and painful death. I died too Liz! We will love eachother. I will hate you, but I will love you, and together will are destined to be together."

Again Liz dream changes. Now she is 10, scared and alone. Her father enters her room...

"GET HERE NOW BITCH!!!! YOU MADE MY WIFE LEAVE ME AND NOW I WILL LET YOU FEEL THE PAIN THAT I AM FEELING!!!" As soon as the first blow what hit in her dream, Liz woke up...

Hope ya like *wink*

posted on 27-Oct-2002 3:47:47 PM by Angelic
I have a new part!!!!!! YES!!!! The lyrics at the begining are by Green Day and its called Time of your Life!!! Enjoy!

Part 6

Another turning point, a fork stuck in the road.
Time grabs you by the wrist, directs you where to do.
So make the best of this test, and don't ask why.
It's not a question, but a lesson learned in time.

It's something unpredictable, but in the end is right.
I hope you had the time of your life.

So take the photographs, and still frames in your mind.
Hang it on a shelf of good health and good time.
Tattoos of memories and dead skin on trial.
For what it's worth, it was worth all the while.
I hope you had the time of your life.

I hope you had the time of your life.

Liz was sitting at the piano sing one of her favorite songs from earth. It always made her feel better when she sang it, yet she didn't know why. Maria and Michael arrived yesterday and it was alot of fuss was being made. Being pregnant, Isabel and Alex made sure that Maria was comftable, and this was making Maria stressed, which inturn made everyone else stressed!!!! However so far she and Liz got on like a house on fire. But it was after dinner, and the little ones where in bed. So Liz was all alone, and with nothing to do, she decided to sing and play the piano. She had a good voice, and almost hit the big time, but her nerves got the better of her, and thus decided to be a teacher!!! What she didn't realise was that a certain someone was watching her...

"Max what are you doing?" Isabel startled her brother, who was watching Liz with such intesnity, that Isabel was surprised that there wasn't holes in Liz's head!

"Nothing Iz, what are you talking about?" Mx replied turning a nice shade of red!

"She has a good voice, and she plays well. Unlike Tess who sounds like a drowned rat, and her playing the piano sounds more like giving a baby a violin!" Isable laughed to herself.

"Don't start Izzy. Don't try to turn me off of Tess!"

"I'm not. In fact I wanna know why your so mean to Liz? Be mean to me, be mean to Michael, heck be mean to Maria, but she'll sock ya one! But you don't even know Liz, and you hate her already? I just wanna know why!"

"I.... I don't know Iz. I feel something. The first time I met her, I felt something so unimaginable! She looked so inocent looking at my pictures. But I'm with Tess, and everyone I love gets burned some way or another?"

"I'm ok Max, I'm ok. Besides you love Tess don't you and she's ok..." There was no reply from Max 'He doesn't love Tess! There's hope yet!' "But Max that doesn't mean you should hurt Liz. She is so sweet, and is great with the kid's. They adore her. She's keeping secrets, and she's been hurt. Thats why she's here. Alez hears her crying at night Max. I think she needs someone to love her Max."

"Don't Iz, just don't. I'm inable to love another again!" With that Max stormed off, with Liz unaware of the goings on.

"That's where your wrong Max. Your love will be the greatest ever know!" With that Isabel gave Liz a final look and left to find Alex

Hope its good enough 4 you guys! *angel*

I have a new part already!!! Wow when writers blocks go, new parts come flying at you!!! Oh and the song is by me!!! It's called "Blind Fairytales" And yes this part is short, but it leads up to alot of stuff!

Part 7a

I don't have the golden hair
Or the lips as red as the rose
I don't have the inocent smiles
Or the sweet song of the bird
Coz I'm tainted baby
I'm not perfect in this world

My names not Cinderella
Babe its not Snow White
I'm not the beauty for my beast
I can't be kissed from my sleep
I'm not swimming deep below
Or have the hair that grows and grows
I'm tained baby
And I don't live in a fairytale

I don't dance like pretty maidens
Or leave dainty glass slippers behind
I don't wish to be free from the ocean
Or fly on my magic carpet
Coz I'm tainted baby
I'm coloured out of the lines

My names not Cinderella
Babe its not Snow White
I'm not the beauty for my beast
I can't be kissed from my sleep
I'm not swimming deep below
Or have the hair that grows and grows
I'm tained baby
And I don't live in a fairytale

I only wish to know
Why I feel rejected
This life always takes me down
I only wanna feel love
Within your arms
I'm tainted baby
But so are you
Baby so are you

It had been a week since Max listened to Liz sign. He knew that as soon as the first note of her sweet voice reached his ears, he loved her, 'But I've been so mean and I'm with Tess. Of course I don't love her, and I told Izzy that I don't love Liz or Tess!!!' Max also knew that Isabel was right about Liz having a secret past. He'd watch her, in secret, talking to Maria, or Alex, heck even the maids, with a distance in her eyes, her smile. Max moved his room to be closer to her, of course her told Liz it was to make sure she wasn't stealing. That resulted in a smack arounf the head from both Maira and Isabel. But for the last week he could hear Liz's screams as she awoke from her nightmares. It always broke his heart. He wanted to confront her, really he did, but there was the little problem of him being a jerk! So what the heck was he gonna do?

"HEY MAX!" Michael called up to his friends. "YOU BETTER GET DOWN HERE QUICK!" Max's blood turned cold. He knew something was up. It was confirmed when he heard Maria ear piercing scream. He tumbled down stairs. He could see a man struggeling against two guards. He ran around them and on the floor where three medic's and a heavily bleeding Liz...

Am I cruel or what?*big*

Thanks for all the feedback! I’m sorry it’s been a while since the last post, but I have had so much work, it’s been hard to keep up. This part gives a little in to Liz’s past, not much but enough to understand. And this part is rated R just for some references. The next few parts will be PG 13 again, but later it will turn R! And the song is by Nickelback called Never again

Part 7b

He's drunk again, it's time to fight
She must have done something wrong tonight
The living room becomes a boxing ring
It's time to run when you see him
Clenching his hands
She's just a woman
Never Again

I hear her scream, from down the hall
Amazing she can even talk at all
She cries to me, Go back to bed
I'm terrified that she'll wind up
Dead in his hands, She's just a woman
Never Again

Been there before, but not like this
Seen it before, but not like this
Never before have I ever
Seen it this bad
She's just a woman
Never Again

Just tell the nurse, you slipped and fell
It starts to sting as it starts to swell
She looks at you, she wants the truth
It's right out there in the waiting room
With those hands
Lookin just as sweet as he can
Never Again

Seen it before, but not like this
Been there before, but not like this
Never before have I ever
Seen it this bad
She's just a woman
Never Again

Father's a name you haven't earned yet
You're just a child with a temper
Haven't you heard "Don't hit a lady"?
Kickin' your ass would be a pleasure

He's drunk again, it's time to fight
Same old shit, just on a different night
She grabs the gun, she's had enough
Tonight she'll find out how fucking
Tough is this man
Pulls the trigger just as fast as she can
Never Again

Seen it before, but not like this
Been there before, but not like this
Never before have I ever
Seen it this bad
She's just a woman
Never Again

*20 minutes earlier*

“Liz there is someone down stairs who wants to see you?” Isabel told her friend. Currently Liz was in the middle of teaching the little ones the 7 times table. Ok so maybe not teaching more like getting them to under stand what a times table was!

“Sure Izzy, I’ll be right. Your be ok staying with them right?”

“I think I can handle my little terrors for 10 minutes, after that I don’t know what to do!” Isabel laughed at the look on Liz’s face. “I’m kidding Liz. I’ll be fine with my children. I think I’ll try teaching them the History of Antar.”

“Well if you’re sure. I’ll try not to be too long ok?” With that Liz set on her way down the stairs to the front hall. ‘Not that you can call it a hall! Its so big you could fit 10 on suite bedrooms in there!’ Liz spotted the back of a man’s head. She recognized it but couldn’t place her hand on where she had seen it before. “Hello? Um did you need to see me?” Liz asked. The man began to turn around slowly. Flashbacks began,


A hand raised to strike her down


Blood pouring from a cut above her eye


“You dirty hoar! Because of you my wife is dead!”


“Your not mine. You’ve cost me money! I’m gonna kill you!”


a gun poised to shot, glinting in the shadows…

*End flash*

“Hello Lizzie.” Before her stood her father Jeffery Parker. Her tormentor, her nightmares always consist of him.

“Jeffery. What are you doing here?”

“What no hug for your daddy dearest. No?” Liz just stared at him as if he was the dirt on the bottom of her shoe. No even lower than that. “Ok I want you to come home with me? I’m in debt and I gambled you. So now you belong to Tony.”

“You bet me? You dirty bastard! How could you do that? No you can’t bet me? You can’t bet me, how did you even find me?”

“I have contacts! Also I had someone interrogate Kyle.”

“You mean you had him beat up? How could you do that? I don’t want you her. You’re not my father, and I don’t care what Tony does to you. You can die for all I care! Just go. You can’t bet me, I’m not even sure that is possible.”

“Ahhhh, but I did bet you, and now Tony wants you dead or alive. He doesn’t care as long as I cough you up, you little tramp! And if you don’t come willingly, than you will be dead!”

“What are you gonna do? Shoot me? Oh wait you already did that, when I would'nt become your slut! So come Jeff, if you gonna shot me just do it now and spear me a life with you in it!”

“I’m not gonna shot you! I’m gonna slice you open like butter!” Before Liz could react Jeff grabbed her and shoved a knife into her stomach. Liz let out a bittersweet scream. Michael came running in to see what had happened. He saw the knife, and had little time to react. He ran up behind the smaller man. Before Jeff knew it Michael had put him onto the floor with one smooth kick. The guard’s came running in and grabbed Jeff before he could run off. Alex, Isabel and Maria came running in to see Liz. The ambulance was called and on its way. Michael called for Max and Maria let out a scream. All while Liz was unconscious. And when Max saw Liz the color drained from his face. But before he could heal her, the medics came, and Liz was rushed to hospital…

Sorry it’s been so long but writers block prevails! Hope you like the part. And the song is ironic by Alanis Morissette.

Part 8

An old man turned ninety-eight
He won the lottery and died the next day
It's a black fly in your Chardonnay
It's a death row pardon two minutes too late
And isn't it ironic...dontcha think

It's like rain on your wedding day
It's a free ride when you've already paid
It's the good advice that you just didn't take
Who would've figures

Mr. Play It Safe was afraid to fly
He packed his suitcase and kissed his kids goodbye
He waited his whole damn life to take that flight
And as the plane crashed down he thought
"Well isn't this nice..."
And isn't it ironic...dontcha think

It's like rain on your wedding day
It's a free ride when you've already paid
It's the good advice that you just didn't take
Who would've figures

Well life has a funny way of sneaking up on you
When you think everything's okay and everything's going right
And life has a funny way of helping you out when
You think everything's gone wrong and everything blows up
In your face

A traffic jam when you're already late
A no-smoking sign on your cigarette break
It's like ten thousand spoons when all you need is a knife
It's meeting the man of my dreams
And then meeting his beautiful wife
And isn't it ironic...dontcha think
A little too ironic...and yeah I really do think...

It's like rain on your wedding day
It's a free ride when you've already paid
It's the good advice that you just didn't take
Who would've figures

Life has a funny way of sneaking up on you
Life has a funny, funny way of helping you out
Helping you out

“Excuse me doctor is our friend going to be alright?” Isabel asked the doctor. Liz had just come out of surgery, after being in there for six and a half hours. When entering the hospital Max took control and went all kingly. Not once whilst Liz was in surgery did he sit down, or even stop pacing back and forth. It was only Maria’s insistence that he go and get a coffee with Alex that he went. Isabel felt for him.

“Your friend will be fine, the surgery was a success. If her attacker had gotten even one inch to the left, then Liz wouldn’t’ be quite so lucky. She’s gonna have to take it easy for a couple of weeks. Not heavy lifting, and lot of rest and sleep.”

“Can I go see her?” Isabel was the only one around. Michael took Maria back to the palace so they could look after Isabel’s children. Plus Maria needed rest.

“Of course. She’s asleep right now, but you can sit with her. I’ll be back in an hour to check up on her. Also she might be asleep for a day or so, due to the strength of the aesthetics we gave her.”

“Thank you, doctor.” Isabel entered Liz’s room. She was asleep as the doctor said, but to Isabel it wasn’t a peaceful looking sleep. Tubes were sticking out of her, and she looked extremely pale. “Oh Liz I’m so sorry. If I only I knew, I could have helped you. She sat on the chair by Liz’s bed. Max has been worried about you, ya know. He’s been like a live wire since you got here, pacing back and forth, like a yo-yo. I feel sea sick just thinking about it. He’s with Alex, getting me a coffee, but they’ve been like two hours! Men huh? Any way the doctor says your be asleep for a while, so how bout I read you a book. Alex told me you like Romeo and Juliet so how about I read it for you. Ok then.” Isabel pulled the book from her bag. It was a tattered copy, that seemed to have been read a thousand times. “Well its Max’s copy. He ‘lost’ it a few days ago, I was gonna read it myself. So lets read it together. Two households, both alike in dignity, In fair Verona, where we lay our scene, From ancient grudge break to new mutiny, Where civil blood makes civil hands unclean…” and so for the next hour and a half Isabel read to Liz whilst a young man haunted with pain, watched on.

Mean while

“Do you think Liz will be ok Michael? I mean what if she’s really hurt worse than we thought?”

“Honey she’s gonna be ok? Look Isabel, Alex and Max are all there, and they will call when were needed, but right now, I’m taking you home, because you need to rest otherwise how will you be able to talk Liz’s ear off when she gets back huh?”

“Ok your right. But what do you think about Max?”

“What about Max? Is he hurt too?”

“No silly. I mean being so totally in love with Liz. I think they’ll be great together!”

“What are you talking about woman. Max is not in love with Liz. What would give you a notion like that?” Michael look confused.

“Men! Michael are you blind? He shouted at the doctors if they weren’t fast enough, he was fidgeting, he wouldn’t sit down, he kept asking what the time was every minute. That was a man in love!”

“Good, that means he can dump Tess, she’s just plain annoying. Not unlike someone else I know!” He grinned at Maria, but just glared.

“I’m gonna pretend that I didn’t hear that, but yea, if he loves her he’s gotta ditch Tess right?”

“Lets hope Maria lets hope!!!”

Hope ya like!
