Summary: AU…. read and find out!
Rating: R could become NC-17, I’ll indicate parts that are
Disclaimer: I don’t own any of the characters out of the television series Roswell, however I do own the other non-Roswell characters that have yet to be introduced!
Author's Note: This is AU set in United Kingdom, where I live. This is my first story so feedback would be much appreciated, thank you. The ******** means a change in POV, if it doesn’t say to which character, then it is a general POV. Enjoy



He was always such a nice boy
The quiet one with good intentions
He was down with his brother, respectful to his mother
A good boy
But good don't get attention

Don’t you just love this song? It reminds me of myself a little bit! The nice, quiet, respectful, good intentions kind of girl. The bit that is the closest to me is ‘the brightest kid in school’ and also ‘reading books about science’. I’m currently in the lead to be the valedictorian by an extremely long way and I love science, biology especially!

One kid with the promise
The brightest kid in school, he's not a fool
Reading books bout science and smart stuff
It's not enough, no
'Cause smart don't make you cool

My name, if you’re wondering, is Liz Parker. I attended the local college in Boston, UK, with my best friends Maria Deluca and Alex Whitman. We aren’t considered to be the most popular people in school, hell we aren’t even considered as cool! Maria and I work at the local café, which is owned by my parents called ‘Mirage’.

Well he's not invisible anymore
With his father's nine and a broken fuse
Since he walked through that classroom door
He's all over prime time news

This song also fits to our life as we use to have another friend in our so-called ‘out-group’. His name was Sean Deluca, Maria’s cousin. A year ago, Sean, finding the pressure to be accepted too much, took his life by overdoes in the boys changing rooms. Tess Harding, the most popular girl in the school found him. Like it says in the song, the school was all over the news. You may be thinking back to when that happened thinking ‘which one was Liz?’ well we weren’t on it! The popular’s took the advantage and cried all over the camera about how he was such a great person, please!! They didn’t even know him. We miss him so much.

Mary's got the same size hands as Marilyn Monroe
She put her fingers in the imprints
At Mann's Chinese Theatre Show
She could've been a movie star
Never got the chance to go that far
Her life was stole Oh Oh, now we'll never know

Another thing you should know about me is that I’m a foster kid! Nancy and Jeff Parker fostered me when I was 6 months old. Apparently my real mother died and my father was too young to look after me. I don’t know why they have never adopted me, I’ve never asked, scared of the answer I guess!

They're crying to the camera
Said he never fitted in, he wasn't welcome
He'd show up to the parties we was hanging in
Some guys were putting him down, bullin' him 'round

Well I best start wrapping this up, as Maria and Alex will be here shortly; we’re going to see the new Josh Hartnett movie, he’s so cute!! Good job I don’t have a boyfriend, he wouldn’t be too happy to see me drooling over Josh!! But then who would want to date me!

Now I wish I would have talked to him
Gave him the time of day, not turn away
If I would've then it wouldn't maybe go this far
He'd might'a stayed at home playing angry chords on his guitar


As Liz, Alex and Maria left, they didn’t notice the dark figure standing in the alleyway watching them go. One thing was sure, there lives where about to change dramatically….things would never be the same again.

He's not invisible anymore
With his baggy pants and his legs in chains
Since he walked through that classroom door
Everybody knows his name

Mary's got the same size hands as Marilyn Monroe
She put her fingers in the imprints
At Mann's Chinese Theatre Show
She could've been a movie star
Never got the chance to go that far
Her life was stole Oh Oh, now we'll never know

Greg was always getting net from 20 feet away
He had a tryout with the Sixahs couldn't wait for Saturday
Now we're never gonna see him slam
Flyin' as high as Kobe can
His life was stole Oh! Oh! Now we'll never know

Ya their lives were stole
Now we'll never know
We were here, all together yesterday????

Lyrics ‘Stole’ sung by Kelly Rowland

Sorry that this part is a bit late, but here it is! enjoy!


Part 2

“Come on Alex, admit it, that movie was great!” We have just been to see Forty Days and Forty Nights, I’m sure you’ve heard of it! What a good film, you get to see so much of Josh Harnetts body! A dream come true!!!!
“Nothing you say Liz, will make me admit it! Just thinking about what he did is painful to me! How can someone do that?” Alex did look in pain even just thinking about it! Don’t blame him really, I bet every man does just thinking about giving up sex!
“ How about we get you a drink Alex, you look like you’re about ready to pass out!” Typical Maria, always ready with a joke!

As we walk towards ‘Mirage’ I get this weird feeling that I’m being watched or followed. I have that feeling for a while now, a month or so maybe. I didn’t register it much before but now it’s becoming more constant and really creepy! I’ve told Maria and Alex about the feelings I’ve been getting but they’ve just told me that ‘it is my over active imagination creating these feelings’ Yeah right!! I don’t know whether I should tell my parents, I don’t what to worry them as they worry about me too much! They think that one day my really parents will turn up and take me away. I don’t blame them really because I might be tempted to go with my real parents for a while, I just want to know who I really am, I’ve grown up not knowing. It hurts when other people talk about their ancestors and family tree whereas to me, mine stops at just me! I have this void in me; I wish I could meet my parents.

Ryan Hart POV

God, she’s beautiful! I shouldn’t be watching her this way but I can’t help it, I want her back, she’s all I have. You’re probably wondering who I’m talking about, but first I’m going to tell you about who I am! Well I’m Ryan Hart, famous American actor! I have my own television show that is shown all over the world called ‘Dreamers’, a very popular show about a two young lovers and a secret. Full of amazing sets and very colourful characters! I play the lead role, one of the lovers and the person with the secret. I’m 30 years old and my biggest secret, which no one know is that I have a 17 year old daughter.

When I was 14, my girlfriend of 2 years, Eliza told me she was pregnant. Eliza was 16 at the time and we had recently started sleeping together. It came as a shock but I was really thrilled about the idea, I would have waited til I was older but still I was looking forward to being a dad. Well the day finally arrived, we knew that we were going to have a daughter but we hadn’t picked out a name yet. Our parents weren’t supportive at all our decision to keep her so we were on our own, but that didn’t bother us that much, we would be fine.

Our daughter arrived safely but Eliza died afterward she was born through ‘complications’, that’s all they could tell me. I was crushed, what was I going to do? How could I raise a child on my own with no support? I named my daughter Elizabeth, in memory of her mother, Lizzie for short. As I couldn’t look after her on my own at my age, after much agony I decided that Lizzie should be fostered by people who could care for her until I could properly care for her. For the past 17 years I have kept in contact with the Parkers so that I could keep up-to-date with how my Lizzie was doing and so when I was ready to take her back, it wouldn’t be so hard.

So here I am, ready to be with my daughter. I only hope she wants to be with me…

Thank you for the feedback and for being patient! My exams are over now and here is the new part!! The songs mentioned are by Alanis Morisette, The Calling and Four Star Mary, I don't own them or write them! Enjoy

Part 3


I never knew being in a band would be so hard! My name is Max Evans and I’m the lead singer of the band ‘Antar’. I’m also the one who writes all our songs! But recently I’ve had a huge case of writers block. You’ve probably heard of some of the songs I’ve wrote, if not, here are a few titles, to refresh your memory: ‘Can’t Not’, ‘Could It Be Any Harder’ and ‘Pain’. I’m in the band with my best friend Michael, Kyle Valenti and Jake Jackson. I have a sister, Isabel who travels with us. I’m not sure what else to tell you about myself. There is one thing though. I don’t tell this to people so keep it between us. Do you believe in love at first sight? I never have, that’s probably why I’ve been out with all those girls. They only wanted me because I’m in a band, if I was a normal 17 year old in school they wouldn’t. But any way I never believed in love at first sight, until our concert last week. We were playing in Boston and in the front row was the most beautiful girl I’ve ever seen. She was with her pixie like friend who was jumping about all over the place, while the angel just kinda stared at me the whole time, I was loving it! Unfortunately, we left Boston that night and I’ll probably never see her again without some kind of miracle. I can hope anyway….


“ God Liz I still can’t believe how amazing that concert was, I mean the singer looked like he was staring at you the whole time” I think Maria lives in a world of her own, there is no way that he was staring at me, it was more like the other way round, I just couldn’t stop staring at him!
“ Yeah right Maria, that concert was a week ago, I still can’t believe you’re going on about it! Even if he was, I bet he’s long gotten over it, so you should too!” We went to see a band called ‘Antar’ last week because Maria likes the guitarist I think, I went, as I like their music, the lyrics reflect a lot about how I’ve been feeling lately. Anyway the singer was soooo hot that I just couldn’t stop staring and now Maria has it in her head that he was staring at me the whole time!

I beat your wondering what has happened to the weird feeling I’ve been having about being followed aren’t you?! Well it went kinda quiet for a week but then a few days ago, it got more constant. My parents have been acting really strangely too over the past few days, ever since we got this new regular. He’s tall, dark and as Maria would say ‘completely and utterly drop dead gorgeous’ but I just seem to be weirded out by him. My parents have been really over protective since he arrived and just always seem to pick fights with me, I’m really worried and scared, and I’ve never seen them like this. I hope it blows over soon, I don’t think I can live with this for much longer…

To answer questions:
LizHalliwell she doesn't recognize him as she hasn't seen him up close and he's always wearing sunglasses, I hope that answers your question.
qt4167013 I don't know which country you live but I know that here in England, it doesn't matter if your beautiful, popularity isn't like that, its about who your friends are, like at my college, the popular people are the rugby players and their group of friends.

Anyway, here is part 4, the song used in this part is called 'lessons you'll end up learning despite the best of your knowledge' which is by So Far So Good (used courtesy of Ross Baker)

Part 4
One Week Later


It’s been what 3 weeks and I still can’t get her out of my mind, she is everything I think about.

Did no one tell you love and hate go hand in hand?
And when you're caught by one, well you're number two in the chain of command

Even as we record the new track for the album, I can’t get rid of the image of her. I’m always wondering what she is doing, or how she is feeling.

So hang the phone up, close the door, throw your hopes away
What's that? You want out? I'm afraid that's not possible today

I’m hoping that she is ok, that she is not hurting in anyway. I wish I knew her name! Maybe I could put a flash out on the bands official message board; maybe then she could contact me.

I like your attitude dear I think you'll go far
Don't hesitate don't change your mind don't be a co-star

I wonder if that idea would work? Well so far it is the best I’ve got! Maybe I should concentrate on writing more songs, the bands got a meeting with some director next week who is interested in using the bands music in his show, can’t really remember what it was called, I think is was something like ‘Dreams’ or something similar…

You won't hang the phone up, close the door or throw your hopes away
But you'll remember this moment this today


Well I finally confronted my parents about what had gotten into them…and I have to say that I wasn’t prepared for what they had to say!
Two days ago…… “Mum, Dad can I talk to you about what’s wrong?” my mum looked at me strangely over her newspaper, “What do you mean sweetie?” she had now managed to put the paper down, “I mean the way you’ve been acting towards me recently, arguing and everything” I thought it best to sit down at this point! “Honey,” my dad joins us, “can we talk about this later, there’s someone I want you to meet”. Well that ended that conversation, and I was left even more puzzled! I was told we’d talk about it this evening around 6ish. Just a whole school day to go!

5:30pm…I’m really nervous now. Maybe scared is a better word, what if they don’t love me anymore, or I’m going to be taken away from them to another family! Ok, now I’m panicing, I’m sure that it’s nothing to worry about, but Maria is going to be here with me. “Liz, sweetie, can you come out here for a moment”. Uh oh, this can’t start now, Maria isn’t here yet! The one time I want her to be here early!

When I walked into the lounge, I found a third person standing in there with his back to me. He looked really tall, dark hair and I’d say youngish, maybe 30ish. As he turned around I recognized him as not only the guy from the café but also as the guy from that tv series… erm what is it called… oh yeah ‘Dreamers’ as the lead Jack. I’m standing here, staring when I realize that I’m being spoken to, “Hello Liz, I’m Ryan Hart”, like I don’t know that already! “Nice to meet you”, how lame did that said, good job Maria isn’t here, she’d so tease me for that, but that I still might be trying to peel her of the walls! “Liz,” my mum starts, “your father and I have something to tell you, you may want to sit down”, uh oh this can’t be good. “Liz honey, Ryan is your father”…
