It's August 29th and I'm Liz Parker. It's been three months since I ran down that cliff, since then I've haven't seen any of the Pod squad and it's been three months since I ran away from my one true love, Max Evans. I needed to run, he needed to follow his destiny and that destiny is not me. Tomorrow we're starting school and I'm not very excited. Me, Maria, Alex and Kyle have been able to avoid them, but at school it won't be that easy.

She closed her journal and looked up the sky, dreading for tomorrow.

Scene: The next day (at school)

''Liz, hey Lizzie how are you?´´ Maria Deluca said when she spotted Liz.

''Oh hey Maria, I'm fine and you.´´ said Liz looking around anxiously.

''I'm fine. So excited to start class?´´

''No not really´´

''What?? But you usua....´´

''Hello ladies´´ said Alex Whitman cutting Maria in her sentence.

''Hey Alex´´ Just then the bell rang ''Oh got to go. Bye guys´´

''Bye Liz´´ said both Alex and Maria.

Scene: Classroom (English)

Max Evans had English like homeroom this year. At least it won't be that bad. He thought, Micheal Guerin, Isabel Evans and Tess Harding were in his class, but what he didn't know was that even the 4 humans were in that class, which are Liz Parker, Maria Deluca, Alex Whitman and Kyle Valenti. Just then he turned his head to the doorway, he could feel her approaching and he was right. Right there standing in the doorway was Liz, Maria, Alex and Kyle.

When Liz was getting to her homeroom she could feel him, but when she neared the doorway the feeling got even stronger. She stepped in the classroom and the first thing she saw was his soulful eyes. She tried to fight back the lump that was forming in the back of her troat . She passed near him without even acknowledging him.

Before Max could grab her arm and tell her that he loved her, the teacher entered the classroom ''Hello class, for these next week we'll be talking about William Shakespeare and his work. I'll be passing out a copy of Romeo and Juliet to each one of you and you'll be performing a little part of it in front of the classroom.´´

There was numerous grows in the class but she ignored them ''Well let's start´´ she looked around the classroom looking for a Romeo and Juliet. ''Romeo will be played by...Max Evans´´ he stood up and made his way up front ''...and Juliet will be...Liz Parker.´´ She got up and went in front.

''Good. Ok you'll be performing Act 2 Scene2. Max you start.´´

He took all his courage and he started ''He jests at scars that never felt a wound. But soft, what light through yonder window breaks...´´ he turned and faced Liz ''It is the East, and Juliet is the sun. Arise fair Sun and kill the envious Moon´´ he could feel all the class eyes on him but he continued ''Who is already sick and pale with grief. That thou her maid since is envious... Her vestal livery is but sick and green. And none but fools do wear it, cast it off.

''It is my lady, O it is my love...O that she knew she were, She speaks, yet she says nothing, what of that...Her eye discourses, I will answer it´´ By now he forgot of where he is and continued like if he was telling everything he felt ti Liz ''I am too bold, 'tis not to me she speaks...Two of the fairest stars in all the heaven...Having some business do in treat her eyes. To twinkle in their spheres till they return.

''What if her eyes were there, they in her head. The brightness of her cheek would shame those stars...As daylight doth a lamp, her eye in heaven. Would through the airy region stream so bright. That birds would sing, and think it were not night...See how she leans her cheek upon her hand. O that I were a glove upon that hand. That might touch that cheek´´

She could hear and fell all the love hidden behind those words ''Ay me´´

Take a deep breath, he told himself ''She speaks. Oh speak again bright Angel, for thou art. As glorious to this night being o'er my head...´´ Behind those eyes everything he said was true. Liz was an Angel, his own personal angel who was send down from heaven for him ''As is a winged messenger of heaven. Unto the white-upturned wondering eyes. Of mortals that fall back to gaze on him. When he bestrides the lazy puffing clouds...And sails upon the boson of the air´´

It was her turn she took a deep breath and said her lines ''O Romeo, Romeo, wherefore art thou Romeo. Deny thy father and thy name. Or it thou wilt not, be but sworn my love. And I'll no longer be a Capulet.´´

''Shall I hear more, or shall I speak at this?´´ said Max.

''Tis but thy name that is my enemy. Thou art thyself, though not a Montague. What's Montague? It is nor hand nor foot...Nor arm nor face, nor any other part...Belonging to a man. O be some other name. What's a name? That which we call a rose, by any other name would smell as sweet. So Romeo would were hew not Romeo call'd...Retain that dear perfection which he owes. Without that little, Romeo doff they name, and for thy name which is no part of thee. Take all my self´´ Every word she said was exactly the way she felt.

''I take thee at thy word. Call me but love, and I'll be new baptiz'd. Henceforth I never will be Romeo.´´ He felt comfortable now and wasn't nervous or scared anymore.

''What man art thou, that thus bescreen'd in night. So stumblest on my counsel´´ said Liz.

''By a name, I know not how to tell thee who I am. My name dear saint, is hateful to myself, Because it is an...enemy to thee. Had I it written, I would tear the word.´´ He looked in her eyes and saw pain.

''My ears have yet not drunk a hundred words...Of thy tongue's uttering, yet I know the sound.´´ She really felt herself in Juliet's character. ''Art thou not Romeo, and a Montague?´´

''Neither maid, it either thee dislike.´´

''How cam'st thou hither tell me, and wherefore? The orchard walls are high and hard to climb...And the place death, considering who thou art. If any of my kinsmen find thee here.´´

He touched her cheek when he saw a tear fall. He wiped it off with his thumb and continued his lines while still stroking her cheek ''With love's light wings did I o'er-perch these walls. For stony limits cannot hold love out...And what love can do, that dares love attempt. Therefore thy kinsmen are no stop to me´´ He said with a soft, deep voice.

Half of the class was very moved by the performance that was happening in front of them. ''Good.´´ said the teacher ''Very good...I never...ever seen a such performance like that. It's like you were talking by experience.´´

You got no idea. They both thought.

''Well for tomorrow I want all of you to read the book.´´ The bell rings. ''Don't forget to read´´ said the teacher.

Before Max could catch up with Liz she was already out of his sight. ''Damn´´

*angel*Hope you guys liked. FB please.

Chapter 1b:

Secne: Drama class

''Miss Greymont I got good news´´ said the English teacher as she entered the classroom.

''Yes Miss Lewis. What is it?´´ asked Miss Greymont.

''You know that you always wanted to do the play Romeo and Juliet and that you always had a hard time to find a Romeo and Juliet well I found them´´ she said all excited.

''Really who are them´´

''Max Evans and Liz Parker´´

Scene: Biology class (same time)

''This year I'll choose your lab partner. It will depend on your skills and strength so people get up and get by the wall´´ said Miss Hardy. ''Micheal Geurin and Maria Deluca here, Isabel Evans and Alex Whitman here, Tommy Matthews and Pam Troy here.´´ she went on with other names. ''Tess Harding and Kyle Valenti here, Julie Harnett and Sara Gables here and the last ones Max Evans and Liz Parker here.´´ just then there was a knock on the door ''Yes´´ said Miss Hardy ''Yes alright´´ she turned to the class ''Mr. Evans and Miss Parker could you take your books and go in the Drama room.´´

''Sure´´ they both said, leaving the classroom.

When they left the room, Max was trying to find a way to tell Liz how he fells about her. Well this is your chance, he thought. He grabbed Liz and made her face him ''Liz I need too talk to you after school, so meet me in the eraser room´´ And he let go of her and went in the direction of the Drama room.

Scene: Drama room

Max and Liz entered the class and Miss Lewis approached them ''Max, Liz, I talked to Miss Greymont about your performance in class and if she likes it would you both do the honour to be our mane characters in the show.´´

They looked at each other when Liz was going to object Max accept for her ''Sure, we'll both love too´´

''Ok could you both please come here and perform Act 1, Scene 5, where their dancing. Max you're starting´´ said Miss Greymont ''Here's a copy.´´

They both took the book and placed themselves. Max started his lines ''If I profane with my unworthiest hand, this holy shrine, the gentle sin is this...My lips two blushing Pilgrims ready stand. To smooth the rough touch with a gentle kiss.´´ He said more comfortable because there were less of people.

''Good Pilgrim you do wrong your hand too much...Which mannerly devotion shows in this. For saints have hands, that Pilgrims' hands do touch, and palm to palm is holy Palmers´ kiss´´ said Liz.

''Have not Saints lips and holy Palmers too?´´ he was starring at her lips and he didn't think he would be able to keep his needs under control much longer.

''Ay Pilgrim, lips that they must use in prayer.´´

''O the dear Saint, let lips do what hands do, they pray, grant thou, lest faith turn to despair´´

''Saints do not move, though grant for prayers´ sake.´´ She could feel Max heated stare on her.

''Then move not while my prayer's effect I take. Thus from my lips, by thine my sin is purg'd.´´

''Then have my lips the sin that they have took.´´ Liz said.

''Sin from my lips...O trespass sweetly urg'd...Give me my sin again´´

''Wow amazing, Miss Lewis you were definitely right. We found them.´´ She turned to Max and Liz ''Do you both know your lines.´´ They nodded 'yes´ ''Good I want you to do the same thing, but this time I want you two too dance and after the line 'Give me my sin again´ I want you Max too kiss her.´´

And they started but this time with music and holding each other. '' If I profane with my unworthiest hand, this holy shrine, the gentle sin is this...My lips two blushing Pilgrims ready stand. To smooth the rough touch with a gentle kiss.´´ They were dancing the old fashion way, hand in hand and one of Max's hand on Liz's back and one of Liz's hand around Max's neck.

''Good Pilgrim you do wrong your hand too much...Which mannerly devotion shows in this. For saints have hands, that Pilgrims' hands do touch...And palm to palm is holy Palmers´ kiss.´´ Said Liz, breathing heavily.

''Have not Saints lips and holy Palmers too?´´

''Ay Pilgrim, lips that they must use in prayer.´´

''O the dear Saint, let lips do what hands do.´´ And there it goes again. He still was starring at her lips ''They pray, grant thou, lest faith turn to despair.´´

The same heated feeling was on her lips, but she ignored it and continued. ''Saints do not move, though grant for prayers´ sake.´´

''Then move not while my prayer's effect I take. Thus from my lips, by thine my sin is purg'd.´´ Said Max.

''Then have my lips the sin that they have took.´´ Said Liz.

''Sin from my lips...´´ He lifts her chin up so they could be eye level ''...O trespass sweetly urg'd. my sin again´´ He bend down to capture her lips. He first kissed her softly and them more passionately.

That was then that they both saw flashes of their times together.

''Max, Liz you can stop now.´´ Said Miss Lewis and they separated from each other. They both turned to face Miss Lewis and Miss Greymont.

''That was wonderful. Could you both come tomorrow after school and we'll talk about the play.´´ They nodded 'yes´ ''Good´´ and she turned to Miss Lewis ''Could you bring me the names of the others that will be playing in the play.´´

''Ya sure. I'll bring it to you in two days´´ She turned to Max and Liz. ''You may leave now.´´ And they left the room. ''They will be perfect, you need to be blind to not see that they're in love.´´

''Ya, I know.´´

Scene: Eraser room (after)

It's been five minutes since the bell rang and Liz still wasn't there, just then the door opened and Liz came in. I went behind her and sealed the door shut.

''Max, what do you wanted to talk to me about.´´

''Liz...I love you, you and only you. You're my sunshine, you're the reason I wake up, that I continue to live. Without you I would be nothing, I'll just be an empty shell. I need you, Liz Parker I love you now and forever.´´

She was going to cry. ''Max we can't. Tess is your wife you need her, she will keep you sane and strong to safe your peoples. You heard it just like I did. Max I...´´

''No I don't care I love you Liz. It's about you and me, not Tess or my peoples. I don't care what my mom said or an hologram, I listen to my heart and my heart says to love you.´´

''I can't...´´ She was crying by now. ''I'm sorry Max, but I can't.´´ And she leaves.

Max was left standing there alone with a plan forming in his head.

Scene: Later that night (on Liz's balcony)

It's 11:00pm and she just finish cleaning downstairs. She's writing in her journal, thinking about today's events.

It's September 1st and I'm Liz Parker, today was so hard. First I'm lab partner, secondly me and him will be playing a play together, not any play but 'Romeo and Juliet´.

I wake up in the morning,
Put on my face.
The one thats gonna get me,
Through another day.
Doesn't really matter,
How I feel inside.
This life is like a game sometimes...

After school Max told me he loved me. I know it's true but I can't stand between him and destiny. He's got responsibilities, a planet to save and a wife. Tess is his destiny not me, I know that I made the right choice by leaving that day at the cave but he doesn't seem to realize it.

Then you came around me,
The walls just disappeared.
Nothing to surround me,
To keep me from my fears
I'm unprotected
See how I've opened up
You've made me trust

I almost gave in, but I couldn't ignore what I heard and saw, even if for that I must give up my one and true love.

She closed her journal, looked at the stars, thinking how could her life become so screwed up in so little time.

Cuz I've never felt like this before
I'm naked... around you
Does it show?
You see right through me
And I can't hide
I'm naked... around you
And it feels so right...

She though about Max and tears came to her eyes. She can't have Max but she'll still love him, even if she can't spend her life with him. In the dark silent night the only thing you could hear is her sobs and a silent, soft, whispering voice in the night. ''I'll always love you Max Evans.´´

I'm Trying to remember
Why I was afraid
To be myself
And let the..... covers fall away
Guess I never had
Someone like you
To help me fit
in my skin

Cuz I've never felt like this before
I'm naked
Around you
Does it show?
You see right through me
And I can't hide
I'm naked
Around you
And it feels so right

I'm naked
Oh oh yeah
Does it show?
Yeah, I'm naked
Oh yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
oh oh
I'm naked around you
does it show?

I'm so naked around you
and I can't hide
you're gonna, you're gonna see right through.......
Your gonna see right through...
oh yeah

I'm naked around you
And I can't hide.........
Your gonna see right through baby...

Scene: Same time (Evans household)

Max was in his room thinking about today's events.

There are times
I swear I know you're here
When I forget about my fears
Feelin' you my dear

Watchin' over me
My hope sees
What the future will bring
When you wrap me in your wings

He's been thinking a lot these weeks. Thinking about, what it Tess never came? What if he would have ran after her and not have listened to Micheal?

And take me where you are
Where you and I will breathe together
Once again, we'll be dancin' in the moonlight
Just like we used to do
And you'll be smilin' back at me
Only then will I be free
When I can be, where you are

And I can see your face
Your kiss I still can taste
Not a memory erased

He couldn't stand it anymore, not having Liz by his side was driving him crazy and making him weak, that's why he'll do anything to get her back.

Oh, how I see your star
Shinin' down on me
And I'd do anything
If I could just, be right there where you are

Where you and I will breathe together
Once again we'll be dancin' in the moonlight
Just like we used to do
And you'll be smilin' back at me (and you'll be smilin' back at me)

Only then will I be free
Then I will be free, so take me where you are

A plan was forming in his head. But for that he needed Alex, Kyle and Micheal's help. He dialed Alex phone number first.

Now baby there are times when selfishly
I'm wishin' that you were here with me
So I can wipe the tears from your eyes and make you see (wipe your tears)
That every night while you are dreamin'
I'm here to guard you from afar
And anytime I feel alone
I close my eyes and dream of where you are

(Where you are)

''Hey Alex, it's Max...I need yours, Kyle's and Micheal's help to get Liz back. Meet you at my place in an hour, bye´´

(Where you and I will breathe together) and we will be together baby
(Once again we'll be dancin' in the moonlight) and we'll be dancin' in the moonlight
(Just like we used to do)
And you'll be smilin back at me (and you'll be smilin back at me)

Only then will I be free
Then I will be free,

Baby I still believe
Oh I've got to believe
(I still believe)
I will touch you that sweet day (that sweet day)

That you take me there
(Where you are) where you are
I still believe
hoooooa, I've got to believe
(I still believe)
I will touch you that sweet day (that sweet day)

That you take me there
(Where you are) Where you are, oh where you are!
(I still believe)
Oh I've got to believe
(I still believe)
I'll always be waiting here

(That sweet day) that sweet day, yeah!

(I still believe......I still believe....) Only one I'll be waiting for
