I'm usually a candy girl so this is my first dreamer fic but I hope you'll like it!
It's based on the song "You'll be in my heart" by Phil Collins but I've changed it a little bit...

Liz walked hand in hand with the love of her life. Max Evans, the boy who had changed her life in so many ways.
The day he saved her life a bond formed between them and ever since, Liz couldn’t imagine a life without him.
This was maybe the last time they would ever spend together. Max’s other side called for him. He, Michael, Isabel and Tess had found a way to get back to their home planet. And Liz could never stand in the way of that.
“Liz I want you to know that I would stay if you asked me to,” Max said and stopped walking.
“Max,” Liz started. She sat down on a bench and pulled Max down with her. “I know you would. That’s why I haven’t asked,” Liz explained.
“You don’t want me to stay?” Max asked, knowing it was a bad question.
“I’m not even gonna answer that,” Liz answered and smiled at him. “There’s nothing I’d want more.”

You’re born to be a king
Of a world unknown
It must be scary
To be on your own

But I will help you
In every way I can
I will be here
Don't you cry

“But I know that this is what you have to do,” Liz said. Every part of her heart and soul knew that she should ask him. She knew that they would be so happy together and that their love would never die. But every part of her brain knew that it would be selfish to ask.
Max was born with a purpose and he should fulfil it. Even if it meant that they would have to give up on each other.
“So I guess we need to say goodbye now,” Max said, looking into her eyes. Liz could just drown in those brown eyes. The day she’d almost died, when Max saved her, she looked into those eyes and knew that she would be okay. When she’d lain on the floor all bloody, she looked into Max’s eyes and found comfort and hope. They were the eyes of a leader, of a true hero.
“I guess we do,” Liz agreed. She smiled at him and pulled him to her. She slowly moved her head towards his until their lips met.

For one so quiet,
You are so strong
My love will hold you,
Keep you safe and warm
This bond between us
Can’t be broken
I will be here
Don't you cry

'Cause you'll be in my heart
Yes, you'll be in my heart
From the day I healed
Now and forever more

You'll be in my heart
No matter what anyone say
You'll be here in my heart, always

Liz opened her mouth and let Max’s tongue enter her mouth. She could feel the heat and passion coming from Max. They were so close that she could feel his heart beat. Fast, in line with hers.
Liz blocked out all other thoughts from her head, until the kiss became her whole world. She let her hands slide up in Max’s hair and she could feel his hands rubbing her back under her shirt.
Then they slowly parted and looked at each other.
“I love you so much,” Max said. “And I wish that I wasn’t so different. I wish I could be like you.”
“Max, you wouldn’t be you if you weren’t exactly like you are now. And we’re not that different. We both have a heart and we both feel hate, happiness, anger, sadness, pain and...And love.”
“Yeah, but if I wouldn’t be this other person, we could still be together,” Max said.
“If you weren’t that other person, you wouldn’t be you,” Liz said and tried to reassure him. She gently touched his face and looked him in the eyes.
“But I’m not human,” Max insisted.
“Max stop it,” Liz ordered. “You’re human in every way that matters.”
Then they sat there in silence, kissing and taking their last looks at each other.

It’s so unfair
To tear us apart
We’ve found each other
But it can’t be
I know we're different but,
Deep in side us
We're not that different at all

And you'll be in my heart
Yes, you'll be in my heart
From the day I healed
Now and forever more

“What if I can’t do it?” Max suddenly said. “What if I can’t be the king of a world?”
“If there’s one thing I’m sure of in all of this mess, it’s that you were born to do greatness,” Liz said.
“But what if I do something wrong? What if something goes wrong because of my decisions?”
“Max, this is your destiny. If something goes wrong, you’ll find a way to fix it. I know you will Max,” Liz reassured him.
“I wish you would be there with me. You are my inspiration and guide Liz. You’re my everything.”
“God what did I ever do to deserve you?” Liz said. “I must have been a very good person in an earlier life or something.”
“Liz, you deserve so much more. You deserve to live happy all your life. You haven’t even lived yet,” Max said, looking guilty at Liz.
“Maybe I’m not old yet and maybe I have a lot of my life left,” Liz said. “But I’ve already had a lifetime of love. And that’s thanks to you Max Evans.”
“Well, our love doesn’t end here,” Max said and cupped Liz’s face. “Our love will never really die.” Then he kissed her again.

I know you can do it
Be king of your world
I wish I could be there
To guide you through
But I can’t come
This time

When destiny calls you
You must be strong
I may not be with you
But you've got to hold on
You’ll see in time
I know
That this is the best way

'Cause you'll be in my heart
Believe me, you'll be in my heart
I'll be there from the day I healed
Now and forever more

About an hour later, Liz and Max got out of the jeep and walked hand in hand towards the granolith.
The others had joined up with them so there they stood. Four couples. Michael and Maria, Isabel and Alex, Tess and Kyle. And finally Max and Liz.
Liz smiled at Max and they intertwined their fingers.
“This is so hard,” Max said. “I don’t think I’ll be able to go.”
“Yes you will,” Liz said and kissed him. “Because it’s your destiny.”
“My destiny is you Liz. It will always be you.”
“Well in that case you have two destinies,” Liz said and they both smiled.
“God I love you so much Liz Parker.”
“And I love you Max Evans…”

Oh, you'll be in my heart
Our love will never die
You'll be here in my heart, always

I'll be with you
I'll be there for you always
Always and always
Just think of the good times
Just remember our kisses
Just never forget us
I'll be there

Then they kissed. A long passionate kiss that seemed to last forever.
They couldn’t get enough of each other. When Max had to go, they parted slowly and their hands never let go.
“So this is really goodbye,” Max said.
“Yeah,” Liz said, tears running down her face. Max touched her face and tried to wipe them away but they never stopped.
“You have to go now,” she said and gently moved his hand away.
They kissed one last time and then took one last look into each other’s eyes.
“I’ll always love you,” Max said. His eyes were filled with tears.
“I’ll always love you too,” Liz said.
Then Max started walking with their hands still together. When they had to let go, he turned to her and looked at her one last time.
“Never forget me,” he said.
“Never,” Liz promised. “And I’ll never regret anything.”
“You’ll always be my destiny Liz Parker,” Max said before he turned away. Their hands were forced to let go and soon Max was out of sight.
Liz was left to just look after him and soon she collapsed to the ground and the tears kept running down her face.
“You’ll always be in my heart,” she whispered…

Thanks for all the nice things you've all written! Would anyone be interested in a sequel? Maybe Max could come back?
