When coming face to face with these two people, will Ryan still find it so easy to forgive ? Or would Liz for that matter? This is the sequel to my short story ( True Heir) If you haven’t read it , you will be a little lost . If you want to read it , you can find it on the repost board.
PLEASE, Leave Feedback. It’s not a must. But it make’s me feel good.
PART ONE A,
It’s December 12, 2012, And my name is Ryan Michael Parker. First off I will like to stress That writing my feelings and thoughts down was not my ideal, it was my mother’s. So this is all very new to me. But am willing to give it a try, if your willing to listen.
Well where to start ? I guess the beginning, would be a good start , now wouldn’t it ?
Well you already know my name so we’ll just skip that part. I was born in Roswell New Mexico , On December 13, 2001. And yes, yes tomorrow is my birthday, WooHOOOOOO !!! I’ll be eleven years old. (I AM THE MAN ). Now let’s all say at once shell we? RYAN IS THE MAN!!!! Ok now that I got that out of my system , we can continue . Ok I was born to Elizabeth Ann Parker, A mother who loves me more then her own life. And Maxwell Philip Evens, A father who could care less if I was to live or die. At lease that’s the feeling I get any way. Who knows , he could be a pretty deceit guy. (NOT!!!!)
I know what your thinking . Your thinking, now Ryan. Aren’t you being just a little bit hard on Max ? Well let me tell you a little about mine and my mom’s life, and then you can decide if am still being to tough on dear old dad.
Ok, first off. Max left my mom when she was just five mouths pregnant with me, for another planet. to save is other son. By another woman name Tess, or gerbil, which ever one you want to call her. So now that you know this. Do you still think am being to hard on Max?
You do ? Well there’s more. You see Tess, Also killed my mom’s best friend, Alex . And yep, you heard me right. She killed Alex. Mind warped him to death . And not only that, she also was going to hand Max, my aunt Isabel, and my uncle Michael over to Khivar, our enemy or he was our enemy. But I’ll get to that part later in the story.
So where were we? Oh right . Well Tess was going to hand them right over to Khivar, But My mom saved the day and their lives. She figured out that Tess mind warped Alex into translating the destiny book. But his mind couldn’t take it when she tried to do it again, and ended up killing him. I don’t care how much you try to sugar coat it, by saying that she didn’t mean to, The point of the matter is that she was playing around in someone’s head without a good reason, resulting in that person death . Just because her and Max was married in their past lives, didn’t mean that she have a claim on him in this one. Now I see why humans are so afraid of cloning , just look what happen in this case. and they don’t even know about it.
Well A little while after Tess left the planet , my mom and Max got back together. And not soon after that I was conceived.
And for you all who are wondering why I don’t call Max dad, It’s because I don’t feel computable , with it. I mean , he’s really not a dad to me. A dad is always around, a dad is there when you hit your first home run in base ball, or when you start liking girls. Max wasn’t here for any of that. Max is just a sperm donor.
Ok back to my story . Max left my mom five mouth pregnant with me, knowing full well that I would die without that connection to him . I know what your saying . How can I know this if I wasn’t even born yet. well your going to have to wait to find out.
I was born on the 13th of December, at 5A.m. A happy day soon turned into a sad one, when I stopped breathing. My aunt Isabel saved me that day. She also found out that I couldn’t survive without a connection to my Max. I needed a connection to one of my parents , and since my mom was pretty much human, her brain couldn’t handle that strong of a connection. So that met that I needed Max to live. I was pretty much sick all the time. I was always tired, and I got real bad headaches . Uncle Michael and aunt Isabel was there to heal them most of the time. But not all could be heal. My mom was great, she always made sure that I had fun, and that a laughed a lot , and she always made sure that a felt loved. I had a feeling that she was trying to make up for Max not being there. She also made sure that I never saw her cry, even though I heard her At night when she thought that I was asleep.
I guess the end came on my fifth birthday. My mind tried one last time to reach out to Max, but he was still blocking me. Oh so now your starting to get it? it’s about time. You see Max never had to be near me, he didn’t even need to be on the same planet, he just needed to open up to me. and he choose not to. He choose to let me die. And that is how I knew that he knew that I needed him before he left. Are you still thinking am being to tough on him now?
After Max wouldn’t open up to me that last time, my mind and body just shut down. Michael and Isabel couldn’t heal me , or maybe they could, and I just didn’t want them to. Maybe I just didn’t want to hear my mom cry herself to sleep anymore. Maybe I thought If I just let go, If I just died, she could move on and be happy. Is that so wrong?
But let me tell you now, never under estimate a mother’s love for her child. Or maybe it’s just my mother. Her mind wasn’t strong enough for the connection. But that didn’t stop her from reaching out with her mind for someone to help. Or hoping that Max would hear her pleas and come running home.
That’s where Larek comes in. Because he’s the one who heard her calls for help, and came. And he was almost to late.
My mom was about to take her own life because she thought she lost me. Lark had to use his power to knock her out. He came and got me from my room and took us to a hotel out side of Roswell. He then went back to the house, and mind warp our family into thinking that we had died.
When he got back and what he told us . would change my mom’s life forever.
PART ONE B
You see it seems that there were, a way to save me, but it would cost my mom so much.
You see when Max saved her he left some of his energy, in her body. That energy change some her own cells to match his. So it seems that my mom could take the connection. But and that’s a big but, Larek had to kill all her human cell, and let the antarin ones take over. Meaning that my mom would be completely alien, no human left in her.
Even at five years old, I knew what that meant. I knew what she would be giving up. I remember pleading with her not to do it. telling her that I wasn’t worth it. I also remember her looking me in the eyes and telling me that I was worth more to her. I knew then and there that when I grew up I wanted to be just like my mom. well not just like her since she is a girl and all, and do girlie things. Yo never mind you know what I mean. If not who cares , your just A book.
So I sit there for four days, watching over my mom. Watching her be in so much pain as the alien cells took over her body. In those for days a watch my mom almost die twice, and thinking that if she would had just walked away from Max after Tess Left she wouldn’t have known of this much pain. Yes I know if that would have happened , I would have never been born, but sometimes when am in my room all alone, I can’t help but to think that would have been better for her. But I can never tell her that, If she even knew that I let that cross my mind, she would bit my head off. Don’t get me wrong, My mom is still the same sweet, caring , loving, and giving person she always was, just with a little changes . And I love her for that. I love her for always letting me know how much she loves me, or for always telling me how grateful she is that am in her life. I love her for knowing how much I really need to hear those thing with out me needing to tell her, that I do. My mom is my world, she’s my heart. And I will do any thing to protect her.
Well back to my story. On the fifth day I felt the connection to my mom . I felt her energy and her strength running though me. I felt her emotion and saw her memories. I felt how much hope she had that Max would come back and save me and then stay so that we could be a family. I felt how much Max had let her down, when she realized that he wasn’t going to come back to help me. That maybe he never had plan on coming back. And last I felt her love for me, it was so over powering that it almost knocked me over. That’s when I knew what I had to do.
I walked over to my mom and placed my hand on her head, trying not to notice how warm she felt. I close my eyes and pictured my father. I could since that he was asleep, I could also since that he was on earth. I would be lying if I told you that that information didn’t hurt. I would be lying if I told you that it didn’t hurt me to know that the Man that could have saved me was asleep on the same planet , That I was. He was a sleep while my mother the woman he supposedly loved more then his own life, was giving up every thing that she has ever known even being human, to save her son, their son , to save me. She was giving all this up when the only thing he had to do was to open up to me. If he didn’t what to be my father then I think he should have kept his little soldier in camp.
Now I was forcibly making a connection to him though my mother. To take something away from him that I felt he had no right to any longer, and giving it to my mother. If you haven’t figured it out yet, I took the V imprint of his brain and scan it into my moms. Giving her the rightful title as queen of Antar and the ruler of the granolith, and the planet of Antar and it’s people. I striped Max of the V imprint and his title as king all at the same time. Meaning Max is now no more then another alien on earth. Oh yea , I also left Max with a little present from me, inform of I big oh headache, That most likely took him a week to heal. All I have too say for that it , Ha, Ha ( How are you Liking me now Max !!!)
When I was done giving my mom her new title, that I know that she have every right to. I looked down to see that she was still asleep, but she wasn’t in any pain any more, and that was good. I then looked over to Larek, fully expecting to see shame written all over his face. But all I saw was understanding, and I was grateful for that.
Larek had got into the castle some how to use the granolith to teleport him to earth. But we couldn’t get back that way. he didn’t want to chance mother and I being found in the castle while Khivar and Tess was still on the throne. So we had to wait a year for a ship to get here to take us back. And let me tell you now, that year didn’t go to waste . Larek had us working on our powers every chance that we had. And believe me now when I say that was a lot. within a year mom and I had learned every power Larek had and then some he didn’t even know . And when mom and I combine our powers, lets just say it’s a whole lot of energy. Energy that scared even us. So we had to learn, As Larek always say, control , control, control.
We left earth on my sixth birthday. And let me tell you a year on a space ship is no fun for a six year old. Especially with people bowing to you all the time. Mom had to get use to it to.
On the ship mom had it harder then I did. Since she was queen she had to go to war debriefings. And go though combat training . After a while I got lonely and started to go with her. I mean am going to be king some day, I might as well start training early. Any way once my body got use to it. it started to be fun , and at least I got to spend the days with my mom.
When we got to Antar we had to go to a underground rebel base. When the people of Antar heard that the queen and the heir was on their way back, to take the throne. They rebelled and took back their planet. But it was still up to mom to take back the castle . And that meant she had to take down Tess and Khivar.
I really don’t know how my mom and Larek, took back the castle , I wasn’t there. so I just have second hand information on that. But hey! I’ll tell you what I know.
They over took the castle a night while Tess and Khivar was asleep. From what I heard it was pretty easy to over take them since most of the skins was taken care of before we even reach the planet. I remember mom coming back to the base, her face was so pale, and she looked like she had aged a few years. I remember running to find Larek, to see what had happened. to see what was wrong with my mom.
What he told me made my heart ache for her. You see they had captured Tess and Khivar without that much of a problem. But when they went to take them away, I guess Tess started using her mind warp. And her and Khivar tried to escape, but it went wrong . Tess got away and my mom ended up killing Khivar. My mom had to take another living being’s life, something that she never wanted to do. They looked every where for Tess, but couldn’t find her. So in the end they concluded they she was no longer on the planet.
It took a while and a lot of power but things are finally starting to look ok. The once died planet is looking alive again. It’s really beautiful here, the colors are so much brighter here, and the air is so much cleaner then it is on earth . Mom and I really love it here, this is our home and these are our people.
Mom and I are finally happy, she’s happy being queen to people that she love and that love her. And am getting use to being the heir to the throne. Maybe now I can start being a kid. But something is telling me that’s a wish that am not going to be getting just yet.
Let me ask you something? Have you ever had this nagging feeling that something is about to happen? Something that’s going to turn your peaceful world upside down, because I have that feeling . I have a feeling that the past is about to come back and bit me and my mom in the butt. But who knows, I could be wrong. But every thing in my being is telling me that am not.
Any way, I guess that's all I have to say for now. I think my mom was right it does help to write your feeling down. It’s been so long since I let my feelings out, that it feels kind of freeing now. I guess having a journal isn’t going to so bad after all. As long as no one finds out about it.
Where the heck am I ? I mean I've had some really weirded out dreams before, but this crap is really freaky. And why the heck is every thing all white? You would think that I’d have a little more imagination , with me being a kid and all. Man every things all whacked . First off my mom have me writing in a journal, like some girl. Now I can’t even dream like a normal kid. And might I add “ What the heck is that in the corner !?!”
Ok , am just going to walk over there, nice and slow... Oh what am I doing? This is just stupid. I have nothing to be afraid right? This is just some dumb dream, and I am the man! Am just going to walk over there and kick the damn thing. And then run like hell. yap, yap, sound like a plan.
Ok now am getting worried, that looks like a guy, and not just any guy. it’s a guy in a dress or what looks like a dress any way. And right now I don’t know what I should be worried about more, the fact that am talking to myself in a dream, or that am dreaming of some guy, or that am dreaming of a guy in a dress. You know something tells me that am going to be having some serious problems when I grow up. “ Hey dude!?! I...I don’t know what you want, or who you are . But I think you jumped into the wrong dream, man. because am not into that kinky stuff.”
Yeah , nice going Ryan. Your eleven years old your not into any stuff. But hey , he don’t know that. Stand your ground. show no fear, show no fear, remember this is your dream , and you’ll be damned if you let some pervert try to molest you in it.
Mi: “ Am not a pervert. And this is not your dream it’s mine.”
Oh yeah !!!! I think that the past just found me. “MICHAEL!?!”
Am not mad, am not mad. Am just going to let that go, with him not being in the right frame of mind and all . “ Am not Max. Am Ryan so get that right!”
Mi : “ Your crazy ! I only know of one Ryan, and he’s dead. And I doubt that dead people age.”
“ Am crazy? are you trying to say that am crazy ? This coming from a grown man wearing a dress in his own dream. Am thinking your going to need some serious professional help, and a long talk with aunt Maria. Come on uncle Michael . Snap out of it and look at me, really look at me. Am not crazy , and I sure as hell am not Max !”
Oh god ! I think am going to be sick. I never thought I would see any one look so bad especially not my uncle Michael. there’s not a spot on his body that isn’t marred with cuts and bruises. And his face looks like some one used it as their punching bag. his hair is all matted down with his own blood. I look away because it’s all I can do , to keep from throwing up my dinner.... Stop it Ryan.. Just stop it. Be strong , this is the man who was there for you when you need him. This is the man who you’ve wish on more then one occasion was your father. he put his life on hold to help you and your mother. Now it’s your turn to be strong for him. It must be bad for him to let you see him like this, for him to call out for help. “ Uncle Michael. What happened to you? what’s wrong?”
Mi: “ FBI, Tess.”
What! Did he just say Tess? My god , that woman like a fucking roach. And I know your all saying that I have a potty mouth, but by god. If you lived my life you’ll have one to. “ That can’t be right. she couldn’t have gotten back to earth, could she?”
Oh I think I said something wrong, because he’s looking at me. And I don’t mean one of those, As am pasting you by looks either . he’s looking at me with one of those, where the hell are you looks. Am thinking I have two choices here. I can one tell him the truth, or two, and am really liking this one, I can lie my butt off. Don’t get me wrong am not a liar and I don’t do it, Much. But am thinking if I tell him every thing now, there’s a good chance that I want be walking up again. He may look hurt but I don’t think I want to take any chances . Plus we have more important matters to talk about like , How the hell did he bring me here, and who the hell beat the shit out of him. “ Look uncle Michael, I know you most likely have a sh.... I mean a tone of questions. But can we skip that for know . and you just tell me what’s going on?”
Mi : “ My god you look so much like Max. ”
Ok now that was just rude. You don’t see me calling him names. Ok ,so I did say he was a pervert in a dress. But what he said was just mean. I think am hurt, ( NOT!!!!!) . Ok so let me describe myself to all of you, so that you can know what I look like, am five feet three inches tall, I have bonze skin, and brown hair with blue streaks, my eyes are a mix of brown and gold. My mom says they glow when I laugh or smile , which isn’t much. my ears stick out just a little. and my mom says that am more built now then, Max was at sixteen. I guess it’s something in the water. In other words am just a shorter version of Max. But don’t let the looks fool you , Am nothing like dear old dad. I may be eleven but I don’t look it, nor do I act like a eleven year old . I had to grow up fast, I really don’t have time to be a kid. If I stop and think about it, I don’t even think I would know how to be a kid if I was even given the chance to be one. I have a temper, and I don’t like change. But I have a feeling that what Michael is about to tell me is going to have every thing change. and as much as I would love to just run and hide from It, I can’t, because I am a king . And a king would never turn his back on one of his own. And as am saying this I know my own words are going to come back and bit me in the ass latter.
I want to believe it’s not true, that he’s not really here, that it’s just one of Tess’s mind games again. But I know that he’s real and that by some miracle he’s still alive, and that I brought him here.
God I feel so a shamed, to let him see me like this. He looks so much like Max, That I can’t help but to stand here and wait for the disapproving comments. For him to tell me how much of a disappointment I am, or that am a failure for not protecting my family , by letting them fall in the hands of Tess and the FBI. I wait but they don’t come.
Instead he stands in front of me with his arms folded across his chest . Looking nothing like a eleven year old kid. And I can’t help but to wonder , what he has went thru. What could have happen to harden, the sweet little boy that I use to know. And am hurt and relieved at the same time. Am relieved to know that Ryan and Liz are alive and well, and am hurt that they wouldn’t tell us, that they chose not to. But as much as I want to know what’s going on and how is it that he’s still alive. I know that there’s more important things to tell him. So I look him in the eyes and preceded to tell him what happened.
Oh shit ! I knew Tess was an evil bitch, but even this is a low for her. I stand here listening to my uncle Michael , tell me how Tess posed as an FBI agent and had the special unit reopened. I stand here and listen to how she had them captured a week ago and had them all experimented on like some fucking lab rat. I stand here listening to all this, trying to keep the tears at bay. I haven’t cried since I got to Antar, and I know Larek says that it’s ok for men to cry, that it doesn't make us weak. But I found out at a really young age that crying doesn’t get you what you want. It sure as hell didn’t make Max love me. I feel myself starting to wake, as am telling him to hang on that mom and I are coming for them. As am fading I could barely her him say.
Mi: “ As much as you may not what to believe it, you are more like your father then you think.”
I woke feeling sick to my stomach, not sure if it’s because of what I found out from uncle Michael or that he said that I was like Max, am thinking the latter. But as I lye here am shocked , because I still have the feeling that something is coming. I thought for sure that it would be gone once I woke. And I know two thing right now. one, mom and I will be going back to earth to get our family back, and two, what ever is coming may just break down my walls that I spent so along putting up. And all I can say is “ Happy birthday to me !!!!!!!!”
Hey guys , next stop earth. So please leave feedback.
