Title: The Love We Shared
Category: M/L with a little of everyone else.
E-mail: mbrown214⊕yahoo.com or sweetie121382⊕yahoo.com
Rating: PG-13 now (will become NC-17 later)
Summery: This is a future fic its ten years since Graduation and a number of things have changed. There are a few differences from the episode like Liz decided not to go with the Pod Squad (for reasons which you’ll find out later on in the story). Ava came back from New York when Tess was killed. Isabel, Michael, Maria, Kyle, Ava, Max, and baby Zan left Roswell ten years ago and haven’t been back since. Liz is currently the owner of the Crashdown; she lives upstairs with her daughter.
Disclaimer: I do not own anything that has to do with Roswell nor do I own any of the characters mention in this story. The title was taken from my own imagination.
Feedback: Yes, please.
Author’s Note: This is my second fic so please be gently… now on with the story
The Love We Shared
“We have to go back.”
“No, the war is over. We are safe to go on with our lives.”
“Don’t you want to see her?”
“She choose not to have anything to do with us ten years ago. What makes you think she has changed her mind.”
“Max, it was ten years ago. Things have changed.”
“My answer is no.”
“Well, whether or not you like it we are going back to Roswell and that’s finally, so get over it.” With that said Maria walked out the King’s bedroom, slamming the door behind her.
God sometimes he makes me so mad. Who does he think he is telling me no? Liz deserved to know the truth and if he doesn’t want to tell her then I’m going to. If they had only known the truth all those years ago, things would have turned out so differently. If only we hadn’t let that stupid bitch, Tess get so close but we did and we have paid for that in more ways then one.
Maria looked down at her and Michael’s three-year-old son and thanked the heavens above for giving them such a miracle.
“Daddy wants you.”
“Does he now.”
“Where is daddy, Jonathan?”
“I don’t know mommy.”
“Well then how do you know he wants me?”
“MARIA! Where are you?” Mother and son turn in the direction the screamed came from.
“Michael would you please stop yelling? I’m over here.”
“Oh there you are. I have been looking for you forever. Where have you been?”
“I was talking to Max about going home to Roswell.”
“Really? What did he say?”
“He didn’t say anything. I told that we were going to Roswell and that its finally,”
“Maria you didn’t. Please tell me you didn’t?”
“You know I did. He need to get his head out of his as...I mean butt and realize that he still loves Liz and wants to be with her.”
“Maria you know him and Ava are together now.”
“They are not and you know it. They only pretend to be for Zan’s sake but sometimes I think he knows that they aren’t together for real. Besides I have a hutch that Kyle and Ava are doing the deed if you know what I mean.”
“Mommy what’s doing the deed?”
“Nothing Jonathan it’s just grown up talk.”
“Michael, honey what did you need?”
“Oh yeah I can’t find my pants. You know the ones that button up in the front.”
“Michael you were yelling for a pair of pants. Sometimes I don’t know what I’m going to do with you.”
Liz. My beautiful Liz. God how I miss her there wasn’t a day that went by that I didn’t think about her or miss her. But I can’t think about that right now. There was no use; it was over between us. She made that perfectly clear the day she said she wasn’t leaving. He tried to get her to tell him why but she refused saying only that she wanted a normal life one that didn’t include being chased and shot at by the FBI or some evil alien who was after me. I didn’t want to believe her but it made sense and I had no choice but to leave the woman I loved more than anything in Roswell.
Ten Years Ago: Roswell
“Max, I can’t go with you.”
“What? Liz what do you mean?”
“I’m sorry Max but I can’t go with you.”
“I have tried to get over the fact that you slept with another woman and I thought that I had but now that Zan and Ava are here it’s a constant reminder and I just can’t take it anymore.”
“Liz please don’t do this. I need you.”
“Max if you needed me then you wouldn’t have slept with Tess in the first place.”
What could he say everything she accused him of was true. He had no defense.
“Liz you don’t understand I can’t live without you. I love you.” Please god she has to understand without her there wouldn’t be a me I would have killed myself a long time ago.
“I used to think that love was enough but its not, cause if it was you and Tess wouldn’t have happened. I’m not saying its all your fault because it’s partly my fault too. I should have noticed the change in you before she got to you but I didn’t and now I have to live with the fact that the man I saved myself for, slept with someone else.”
“Please Liz I’ll do anything.”
“Max I don’t think there anything you can do. I don’t know who I am anymore. I’m not saying its forever but I need time to figure out who I am.”
“I know who you are, you’re the woman I love.”
“Max please don’t make this any harder then it has to be. I can’t go with and I’m sorry.”
Max knew that she meant but he had to do something he couldn’t just let the love of his live walk out on him.
“Liz you say you love me then why are you leaving me? The Liz I know wouldn’t runaway when things get tough.” Once the words were out he regretted them.
“The Liz you knew died when she found out that her soul mate slept with some else and got her pregnant.”
He deserved that and he knew it but he couldn’t think of anything else to say.
“I’m not going to change your mind, am I?”
“No you’re not.”
“Will you tell the others for me?”
“If you want me to.”
“Just promise me one thing.”
“Never forget me or how much I love you. If you ever need me look for me in your dreams.”
“I will Max, I promise.”

PART TWO: ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
ZAN: “Dad. Dad wake up! I have to ask you a question.” Man my Dad is so weird sometimes. He’s asleep but his eyes are open.
Max thoughts were interrupted at the sound of his son’s voice. MAX: “Yes son what is it?”
Finally. ZAN: “Are we going to Roswell?”
MAX: “Who told you we were going to Roswell, son?”
ZAN: “Jonathan did. I didn’t believe him at first because he’s just a baby but then I over heard Aunt Isabel talking about seeing Jesse. Who’s Jesse?”
MAX: “Well Jesse is Isabel’s husband or was before we left ten years ago.”
ZAN: “Does that mean he is my Uncle?”
MAX: “Yes by marriage.”
ZAN: “Cool I have another Uncle. So can we go? Please Dad I want to meet my Uncle.”
MAX: “Look I don’t think going to Roswell is…”
ZAN: “Come on. I want to meet my grandparents too.”
MAX: “Zan there are some things you just don’t understand.”
ZAN: “Whatever, I should have known you weren’t going to let us go.”
Zan big blue eyes welled up with tears but he refused to let them fall in front of his father.
What have you done? The boy wants to meet his family. If you really were to think about it you would know the only reason you don’t want to go to Roswell is because you might run into Liz. I can’t punish my son just because I’m being a coward about seeing Liz again. You knew this day would come.
ZAN: “Okay? Do you mean it? We can go to Roswell.”
MAX: “Yes I mean it. We leave tomorrow so go get packed.”
ZAN: “Cool thanks Dad.” Zan throws himself into his father’s arms giving him a hug
Oh god please don’t me regret this.
AVA: “You’re going to her aren’t you?”
Max knew what she was talking about but hoped that maybe he was wrong, MAX: “Ava, what are you talking about?”
AVA: “Don’t play dumb with me Max. You’re going to see her.”
MAX: “Ava, please I don’t need this right now.”
AVA: “Max you have to understand, I want you to be happy and I excepted a long time ago that I don’t make you happy but I will not have you upsetting Zan.”
MAX: “Upsetting Zan? Ava you have to know that I would never do anything to hurt Zan.”
AVA: “I know but…I guess I just hoped that someday we could be a family and if you’re going back to Liz where does that leave me?”
MAX: “We are a family but I can’t be anything more to you then a friend.”
AVA: “I know Max it just hurts, wanting something you can’t have.”
MAX: “I know Ava, believe me I know. No matter what happens in Roswell we will always be there for each other and for Zan.”
AVA: “You mean it?”
MAX: “With all my heart.”
AVA: “Thanks Max, I hope Liz knows what kind of guy she gave up.”
KYLE: “Isabel did you hear the news?”
ISABEL: “What news Kyle?”
KYLE: “We’re going to Roswell and the best part is that we leave tomorrow.”
ISABEL: “Oh gosh are you serious? I get to see Jesse again?”
KYLE: “Yes Isabel, you get to see your husband again.” As much as it pain Kyle to see Isabel and Jesse together he knew in his heart that Isabel was in love with Jesse and she always would be. He had tried to get over her but it seem that his heart wouldn’t let go. Maybe someday Isabel would be ready for him but until then he would have to love her afar.
ISABEL: “Oh god Kyle I’m so happy. I get to go home and have a family with the man I have always loved. Life couldn’t get any better then this.”
KYLE: “Right Isabel life couldn’t get any better then this.”
NEXT DAY: ROSWELL
FELISSA: “Mommy, can we go to the park today?”
Liz looked up from the newspaper at the sound of her beautiful 9 year old daughter’s voice. God sometimes it still amazed her how much she looked like Max, her father. Once when Felissa was six, she asked where her daddy was. I didn’t know what to say to her except that her daddy was out saving the world and if he could be here, he would be and then I showed her a picture of him that I kept in a locket next to my heart. I wanted so much for her to know what a great man her father was but I gave up that hope a while ago. I honestly thought that when Max left ten years ago he would be back for me but he never did. I know he didn’t know about Felissa, I didn’t even know about Felissa but I still thought that he would come back. He had to know that I didn’t mean what I said I was angry that Ava was there. All I wanted was for him to say that he loved me and not Ava. If he had said that I would have gone with him in a second.
LIZ: “I don’t know sweetie. We’ll see how the day goes.”
LIZ: “Yes, sweetie.”
FELISSA: “Do you have to work today?”
LIZ: “Martha is taking care of the crashdown today.”
LIZ: “Yes, really.”
FELISSA: “Oh boy, oh boy. We’re going to the Park.”
Laughing, LIZ: “Felissa you are so smart. I guess we are going to the Park today.”
FELISSA: “See I told you mommy.”
LIZ: “You did, didn’t you?”
FELISSA: “Uh huh.”
LIZ: “So what to do you want to do at the park, today.”
FELISSA: “Everything. I want to play with the birds and the squirrels.”
LIZ: “Oh no, Felissa the last time you decided to play with the squirrels I ended up chasing you around all day.”
FELISSA: “But mommy we had some much fun. Please mommy can I play with the squirrels?”
LIZ: “Ok, ok but you are not to use your powers. If someone is hurt you come and get me.”
FELISSA: “Ok mommy I will.”

WOW! frenchkiss70 things are messy! I have been writing this story off and on for about a year now. I totally forgot about the "deed" between ava and kyle (who is in love with isabel) I'm not quite sure how I'll fix that but time will tell. I have a few ideas so rest asure that the mistake will be fixed. I'm not sure when the next part will be out, I have a few details that I have to work out but most likely it will be out before the week is over...
thank you guys so much for leaving feedback, good or bad I love it!
