Disclaimer- I sadly *sad* do not own any of the charthers. rating PG-13
Summary- What would have happened if things would have been differnt in the pilot.

***PART 1***

“September 23rd. I’m Liz Parker and five days ago one of my very best friend almost died. After that strange things started to happen.”

Music is playing in the background. Liz is carrying a tray of food over to some tourist.
“Okay, I got one Sigourney Weaver, that’s for you. And one Will Smith. Can I get you any thing else? A Blood of Alien smoothie maybe.”
The woman looks at Liz and replies.
“No, thanks. We’re good.”
Liz looks the tourist over.
“So are you guys here for the crash festival?”
The guy answers first, “Yea, can’t wait. So… does your family come from Roswell?”
Liz laughs for a minute.
“Just four generations.”
The woman looks up at Liz again she looks very curious.
“Uh, well, does anyone in your family have stories about the UFO crash?”
Liz thinks for a second. Then starts to reach inside her pocket.
“Well I guess it would be okay to show you this.”
Liz pulls out a fake alien photo and shows them. Maria walks by then says, “When your finished here, table 5 needs you.”
“Okay Maria.”
Maria walks back into the kitchen for another order.

“My grandmother took this picture right before they cleaned up the crash.”
The guy leans in closer.
“Does anyone know about this picture.
Liz lowered her voice a little more.
“Well I know about it and now you know about.
The guy let’s out a breath.
“I’m going to be right back, so don’t show this to anyone.”
The tourists nod their heads.
“You got it.”
Liz picks up the coffeepot and heads toward table 5.
The heavyset guy glances at her, then growls.
“No, now get outta here!”
Liz makes here way to Maria as they both walked back to the register together. Maria looked at Liz again and shook her head.
“You are soooo bad girl. Oh, and Max Evans is staring at you again.”
Liz looked toward Max then back at Maria.
“No way. Maria, that is so in your imagination.”
Maria just smiled at her.
“Max Evans? This? No, un uh…it’s not…”
Maria looked over to Liz and replied.
“And with those cheeks! Preciosita tan linda!”
“You have no idea what you are talking about.”
“Wait, What are you talking about Liz?”
“Michael Guerin he is soooo into you Maria.”
“You wish Liz. And even if his was, I’m going out with Kyle remember. I mean, he’s steady and loyal, and he appreciates me for me.”
“Maria you sound like your describing your dog.”
Liz starts to make her way to another table with an order. When a guy started to yell.
“…..You ask me to give you another day!? You’re running out of time.”
The heavyset guy knocks the dish off the table, and the crash to the floor. Liz screams for Maria.
The heavyset guy replies again. “I want my money today. Not tomorrow!”
The muscled guy pulls out a gun. They then struggle with it.
Everyone drops to the floor except Maria, the gun goes off and Maria falls to the floor, the men then disappear.

***PART 2***

Liz scanned the café for Maria. When she saw her lying on the ground she cried out to her.
Michael and Max, who had been sitting in the front booth, look over at Maria lying on the floor. Michael gets up to help her, when Max stops him.
“What are you doing Max? Let go of me.”
“Michael what are you going to do?”
Michael turns and calls out to Liz.
“Call an ambulance.”
Michael rushes over to Maria and rips her uniform open. He then looked down at the blood gushing from the wound.
“It’s going to be alright Maria.”
One of the tourists starts to move forward.
“Oh god.”
Max yells “Hey get back!” at her and pushes her away.
Michael looks down at Maria and starts to talk to her.
“Hey, Maria, Maria! You have to look at me. You have to do you hear me.”
Maria looks at him weakly Maria eyes have a glassy look to them. Michael then places his hand over the wound. Images of Maria as a child growing up flash through his mind, then they are gone. Michael lets out a sigh as he looks down at the wound the wound is now healed. Only a small trance of blood remains.
“You’re all right now. You’re all right.”
“Keys Michael now!”
Michael reached into his pocket and pulled out the keys and threw them at Max. He then breaks a bottle of ketchup and pours it over her.
“You broke the bottle when you fell, and spilled ketchup all over yourself. Please don’t say anything else.”
Michael then makes a dash for it and jumps into the truck.”
Maria watches him leave. Sarah McLachlan it playing in the background.
Liz then made her way over to Maria.
“Are you okay.”
“Yeah Liz I’m fine really.”
“Oh, my god Maria are you okay.”

“I’m fine Mr. P don’t worry about it. I just spilled ketchup on myself that’s all. You know nerves and everything.”
“Are you sure Maria?”
“Well, I’m going to call your mother anyway.”

As the deputy was grilling Liz she tapped her pad against the table.
“The guy with the gun was kind of like a, like a muscular Beavis. Yeah that right, and…the other one was like a Beefy Butthead.”
The deputy looked at her and shook his head.
“I’m gonna need a better description then that. But I’m assuming they weren’t actually cartoons.”
Liz shook her head.
“Uh…well no they weren’t. You see it just happened so fast that’s all.”

Sheriff Valenti comes in and looks at Maria.
“What is just Cypress Oil, it helps with nerves and stress.”
“Are you sure that you’re okay Maria?”
“Yeah I’m fine thanks, I-I’m just a little shaken up.”
The deputy walks up to the Sheriff, “the suspects ran out just after the incident occurred. Couple of outsiders. No apparent robbery, no injuries other than the girl who fell. Just seems like an argument that got outta hand.”

The man and woman tourists are nosing around in the kitchen. The deputy turns and yells at them.
“Hey, I told you two to stay out of there!”
The Sheriff looks at him; he then answers the Sheriff.
“Couple of tourists in town for the crash.”
The woman slowly started to come up to the Sheriff.
“Sheriff, hi um, um, I’m sorry, I really need to talk to you. I think something happened here.”
Sheriff Valenti looks at the tourist.
“What do you think happened here?”
The woman looks at Valenti and pulls in a breath.
“Well uh… the gunman was, was standing over there, right? And the shot was fired into this direction. Now Sam and I, we searched this entire place up and down and…I mean there’s, where’s the bullet at?”
Valenti turns at looks at the deputy. The deputy then clears his throat.
“We haven’t found the bullet hole yet sheriff.”
The woman spoke up again.
“Yea, and uh, sheriff. Before it happened the one girl,” she said pointing to Liz.
“Well she gave me this.”
She then hands the sheriff the photo.
“Jeff you may want to look at this.”
Liz’s father takes the photo from the sheriff at looks at it.
“Yea, dad?”
“I told you about showing the alien photos to the tourists.”
“Ops, I guess I’m busted.”

Meanwhile the sheriff walks over to where Michael and Max were sitting, and sees two empty bottles of Tabasco sauce. Sam comes up to the sheriff.
“There were two kids sitting over here when it happened, two boys about girl age.” He said pointing to Maria.
“And then one of them went—“
Maria cut him off before he could finish.
“Uh yea, your right there were. But you know I really didn’t recognize them, so you know they must have been tourists.”
The woman shook her head.
“No, no it sure looked like that she knew them. Her too.” She said pointing at Liz.

Later that night at her home Maria was removing her uniform and stuffs it into a bag. Her eyes caught something strange on her stomach, as she stood in front of her bed and she looked into her dresser mirror. She was looking at a silver handprint in the same place that Michael had healed her.
She looked at it one more time, as her eyes rolled up into her head and she fell to the floor in a dead faint.

***PART 3***

[The Next Day in Biology Class]

Ms. Hott walked around the classroom as she spoke.
“ Okay, we’ve spent the last week talking about Genius and phylum, and now we’re going to get a little more into it. And talk about the difference between species. For today’s lab you’ll be working in teams of two.”
Michael walks into the class five minutes late. He takes a seat beside Maria, and then absent-mindedly sticks the end of his pencil into his mouth. Michael then leans over Maria to look at the page her text is open to.
Ms. Hott looks over at their sink desk.
“Mr. Guerin, so nice of you to show up today. Okay everyone on the right prepare a slide with one of the plant sampling, everyone on the left, take a toothpick and get a sample from your cheek.”
Michael looks over a Maria then taps her arm.
“Hey would you trade seats with me?”
“No way Guerin. Just take the stupid scraping.”
Michael then takes his pencil out of his mouth, and looks over at his teacher visibly uncomfortable. Then raises his hand.
Ms. Hott sees Michael with his hand raised.
“Mr. Guerin?”
“Ms. Hott could I get a bathroom pass?”
“High maintenance today aren’t we?”
Michael then exits the classroom. The teacher then hands Maria a slide cover and toothpick, then she places a toothpick down for Michael. Maria looks at the plant cell and then does a cheek scraping on her-self. She records what she sees in her notebook, then glances down at her watch then at the door. Maria then reaches over and picks up Michael’s pencil and does a scraping. Placing it on a slide and adding iodine on it Maria places it under the microscope. But what she sees looks nothing like hers.

Maria walked down the hallway quickly; she had to make up a story about her mom being sick and her having to call to check on her. When she made in to room 101 she let out a breath and leaned against the wall. Then the bell rang.
Maria craned her neck as she looked through the crowd of student coming from the room. Once see spotted Liz she dove in and grabbed her by the arm.
“Liz I have to talk to right now.”
Liz gasped as her best friend pulled her down the hall.
“Maria what are you talking about.”
“Okay well there is this one little thing that you have to clear up with me first. It’s about my biology class.”
“What could be so important that you’re making me miss lunch?”
“Well that’s what I’m hoping you could tell me you are the science nerd and all that Liz. And I’m just me.”
Liz turned and looked at Maria then at the classroom door.
“Oh no Maria DeLuca, I’m not falling for that trick again.”
“What? This isn’t a trick Liz I really need you to look at something come on.”
Liz shook her head as she walked away.
“Well, whatever it is Maria I’m sure it could wait until after school.”
Maria watched her go then whined. “No Lizzie you don’t understand it is important and it’s not a joke.”

Maria couldn’t believe that Liz thought that she was joking with her.
“This is great Maria DeLuca. You run off the one person that you know that could have helped you understand all of this.”
As she moved through the crowded hallway she caught sight of Michael.
“Michael! Michael! Excuse me; excuse me. Michael Guerin I have to talk to you.”
Once Maria had caught up to him she grabbed him by the arm and pulls him into the band room. Where they find Kyle playing on some of the music instruments.
“Hey, Maria!”
“Hey Michael!”
Michael looked at Kyle nodded his head then mumbled under his breath.
“Whatever dork.”
Maria and Kyle both turned to look at Michael then said.
“Did you say something?”
Michael at first started to get fluster.
“Uh yeah, I said hey.”
“Oh, okay.”

“So Maria did you get my message?”
“Oh yea, Kyle I did. I was uh, just a little…”
“Shaken up.”
“Yep, that’s what it was.”
“I know, my dad told me about the gun going off. You okay?”
“Yea I am, it was just load and then it was over.”
“So you guys are…?”
“Um, we’re looking for a place…to study, for out Bio midterm.”
“Oh right. Right okay, Biology you and Michael Guerin studying.”
Kyle then let out a little laugh.
“That’s a good one Maria. A real good one.”
“What what’s so funny.”
“You and him studying. Kyle let out another laugh. He then caught Maria’s green eyes staring at him.
“All right, I believe you I was leaving anyway.”
“Great, um, that’s good.”
“Oh, I got my costume for the crash this Friday it’s great…”
“Kyle. Michael and I really have to study. Sorry.”
“Right. See ya Michael.”
Kyle then leaned over to kiss Maria and said.
“And I’ll see you later tonight?”
“Oh yeah you bet.”
As their lips touched together in a kiss, Michael had to turn away to keep himself from getting sick. He could feel the bile rise up into his throat, but forced it back down.
“See later Maria.”
“Bye Kyle.”

“So…you’re going out with the Sheriff’s son?”
“Um, yea. Well, it’s kind of like this, this casual…okay, Michael. Can we just focus here for one minute please? Thank-you.”
Maria then starts to pull up her baby blue T and show him the silver handprint on her stomach.
“Wow, cool.”
“Um, I-I scraped some cells from your pencil.”
Michael’s face stared to harden but then it softened.
“This is really hard to say, without my oils here. I’m trying to keep from blacking out here. Um, the cells from what I could tell weren’t normal. I mean I’m not good at this science stuff. So, Michael what I’m thinking here is that we just go back to the bio lab now, so that I can take a sample so that I can see what I’m thinking is wrong, you know? That I got the wrong cells…”
“You didn’t.”
“Okay, um. So help me out here Michael. I mean come on, what are you?”
“Well I’m not from around here.”
“Where are you from?”
Michael uses his index finger to point up.
“Up north.”
He then points up higher.
“You’re not an, an alien, I mean. Are you?”
“Well if you want to call me that. But I prefer not of this earth. Sorry, it’s not a good time to joke. Yea, I am. Wow, it’s weird to actually say it.”
“Oh my god!”
Maria turns to leave.
“Um, Michael, you know I have a Civil War class to get to before I’m late. So I’m just gonna…”
Michael stops her before she reaches the door. As Michael turned her to face him, he could feel her shaking she was really terrified of him.
“Maria, listen to me. You can’t talk to anyone about this. Not your parents, not Liz, no one. You don’t understand what’ll happen if you do. Maria please? Now my life is in your hands.
Maria couldn’t handle all of this it was just too much. Part of her just wanted to scream right now. Her brain was just spinning with too much info she couldn’t take it. The shock of what she just found out was starting to have an effect one her. A few waves of dizziness came over her. Part of her wanted to blame it on him but she didn’t have the heart.
Michael didn’t know what was going on he had feelings for this girl. But she was going out with someone else. All of a sudden Michael felt Maria’s arm go limp. At first he thought he had did something to hurt her, but then he realized that she had fainted.

"I can’t believe you did this Michael. You know, I finally feel like I have a quasi-normal existence and you go and blow it all with one random act of lunacy.”
Isabel turns toward her brother.
“Max did you even try to stop him? I think he’s been hanging around you for to long. This is something you would do Max.”
“Isabel…I did try to stop him. But then I…”
Isabel narrowed her eyes.
"Then you what?”
“Then I let him go to her. We just couldn’t leave her there.”
“Yes, you could have Max!”

Michael leaned forward in his chair.
“Look, we all know I’m a big screw up. Max can sit here and tell you how sorry he is, but I won’t!”
Michael starts to walk away when he turns back around.
“I’m not sorry Isabel. I’m glad I did it, you weren’t there we were. You didn’t see how pale she was. If we would have left she would have died.”
Isabel looked up at Michael and saw how hurt he was.
“Michael I didn’t mean it like that it’s just that. You and Max break a sacred pact. A pact we made together. With rules we made!”
Michael walked back towards the table, and looked at Isabel.
“You use your powers all the time.”
“Recreationally, I do.”
She then starts to heat her taco with her hand.
“The important this is, to contain this. We just have to figure out what to say to Miss Bubbles.”

Hey you go guys it's a little early but I hope you enjoy.*big*

***Part 4***

Michael looked down at Maria’s lifeless body.
“Oh, great Michael. Not only to you freak out the one girl you think is totally hot. But you cause her to freak out so much that she faints.
He then gently laid her on the floor. And started to gently tap the side of her face.
“Maria. Hey, Maria come on wake up.”
Michael watched as her eyelids started to flutter open.
“Good your okay. Now remember what you promised. You can’t tell any one. I gotta go see ya.”
Maria shook her head to clear. Had she heard what she thought she had heard?

Alex and Liz are sitting at a cafeteria table reading the newspaper.
Alex then lifts the paper and points.
“Well, it says right here that shots were fired but no one was injured.”
“Okay Alex, then where’s Maria? I mean, why is she avoiding me? First of all Maria is never late.”
Alex looks over at her.
“All right, so she’s late some of the time. Well anyway, she walks into homeroom today, and goes and sits next to Tiffany Walker. She hates Tiffany Walker, Alex. And she even goes around admitting in openly…and…Alex are you even listening to me?”
Yea, yea, Liz I’m listening to you. But it’s like your starting to become Maria. Just relax, all right? Maria is fine, nothing happened it’s all right here in black and white.”

Isabel, Max, and Michael are eat lunch together at a little Mexican place.
“I can’t believe you did this Michael. You know, I finally feel like I have a quasi-normal existence and you go and blow it all with one random act of lunacy.”
Isabel turns toward her brother.
“Max did you even try to stop him? I think he’s been hanging around you for to long. This is something you would do Max.”
“Isabel…I did try to stop him. But then I…”
Isabel narrowed her eyes then you what?”
“Then I let him go to her. We just couldn’t leave her there.”
“Yes, you could have Max!”

Michael leaned forward in his chair.
“Look, we all know I’m a big screw up. Max can sit here and tell you how sorry he is, but I won’t!”
Michael starts to walk away when he turns back around.
“I’m not sorry Isabel. I’m glad I did it, you weren’t there we were. You didn’t see how pale she was. If we would have left she would have died.”
Isabel looked up at Michael and saw how hurt he was.
“Michael I didn’t mean it like that it’s just that. You and Max break a sacred pact. A pact we made together. With rules we made!”
Michael walked back towards the table, and looked at Isabel.
“You use your powers all the time.”
“Recreationally, I do.”
She then starts to heat her taco with her hand.
“The important this is, to contain this. We just have to figure out what to say to Miss Bubbles.”
Michael looks down at the table. Isabel looks over at him.
“Oh my God, you told her.”
“I didn’t have a choice. She was starting to put things together. We’ll figure something out.”
“Don’t you realize that everything has changed Michael?”
“No, It hasn’t. Okay maybe it has, what do you want us to do Isabel? Leave and get out of Roswell.”
Michael turned and started towards the jeep to leave. Max reached out and grabbed his shoulder.
“Michael, we can’t just leave.”
“Why not Max I screw up. So I guess the day has come for us to leave. We agreed when it did come, we’d be prepared.”
Just as they reached the jeep, Isabel turned to face them.
Michael, where are we gonna go, you know Roswell’s home.”
Max climbed into the jeep Isabel and Michael followed him. He then started it.
“Come on Isabel, the three of us know that Roswell’s not home. It’s not even our solar system.”
Max looked over at him.
“Well this is the closest thing we have to home right now.”
“For you two maybe, it was you the Evans found on the side of the road not me. They’re like real parents to you. My foster dad just keeps me around for the monthly check.”
“This is going to be okay Michael. We should just lay low. Go back to school and act normal.”
“Act normal? That’s your big plan Max? Don’t you realize it’s only a matter of time before they find us and turn us over to some government agency where they’re gonna test us and prod us, and, oh yea, exterminate us.”
Max pulls the jeep onto the road and drives away.


Back at the Roswell High girl’s bathroom, Maria walks in and splashes water on her face. Liz walks out of a stall.
“Hey, Lizzie!”
“So I called like, fifteen times.”
Maria looks over at her.
“Okay so it was twenty.”
“I know, sorry Liz.”
“Maria what happened?”
“What do you mean Liz? You were there, you saw everything?”
“Did I Maria? Cause um, this isn’t ketchup.”
Liz holds up Maria’s order pad for her to see.
“This looks a lot like blood to me. What did Michael do to you Maria?”
Maria went to dry her hands and doesn’t answer her.

In the back of the jeep Isabel is listening to a CD by holding it up to her ear.
“Maxwell…could you get your sister to stop it?”
“Yeah, like listening to a CD is the problem.”
“I couldn’t just let her die all right!”
Max looks out his rearview mirror and sees the Sheriff’s car with its flasher on.
“Max, is he pulling us over?”
“Take it easy Isabel.”
“Maxwell lets go, put your foot on the gas.”
“We can’t start acting guilty Michael.”
Max pulls off the road slowly.
“He always pulls kids over he does it all the time. It’s nothing.”
Michael looks at him and scoffs. “Yeah, nothing.”
Sheriff Valenti walks over to the jeep.
“Your license and registration please.”
Max looks at him. “Of course officer.”
He hands them to the Sheriff.
“Thank you Mr. Evans. We had a little trouble at the Crashdown Café yesterday. You kids be careful out there.”
“Yes sir.”
Max’s foot moves to the gas and taps a half empty bottle of Tabasco sauce. Sheriff Valenti looks down at it.
“Watch your speed. Arrive alive.”
“We will.”
The Sheriff turns and walks to his car. And then climbs in and drives off.
Max goes to start the jeep but Michael stops him.
“Michael don’t worry. Everything will work out.”
“No it won’t man, I just blew our cover. I messed up, and I’m not gonna hang around and wait for them to catch us.
“No one is caught yet. I mean, we don’t even know if there is a “them”.”
“What happened to our parents Maxwell? What happened to everybody else on the ship? They were killed, and you know that. It’s just…”
“It’s what Michael?”
“I don’t think Maria will tell anyone, there’s something about her.”
Isabel looks over at him.
“Really? So how’d she react when you told her? ‘Great you’re an alien that’s fantastic.”
Michael looked away from her.
“ No, I didn’t think so.”
Michael then pulled his hand away from the keys.
Isabel sighed in the back.
“I guess I really am the only one really pissed here.”

Come on I get tons of replies telling me how much you guys like this story and that you want a new part. Well I got a new part up for you. So how come you guys aren't leaving replies. Does it suck or something?*sad*

Dear SpencerHopeful

In truth Michael doesn't want to leave. And If you read the last part again you will see that he says that there is something about Maria and he doesn't think that she will tell. But I didn't have the heart to changed Michael and Max completely. So some of the stuff stayed the same.

Michael even say in a way "Oh that's right I'm the big screw up so lets leave.

***Part 5***

Maria and Kyle are walking to her door.
“Well, goodnight.”
“Oh right, right, Listen Maria, you’ve, you’ve been somewhere else all night.”
“I know, I’m sorry. Kyle, do you ever wonder if…”
“Do I ever wonder what?”
“When you see me, do you, do you feel things?”
“Yes, of course. I feel things. Like what?”
“Forget it, I don’t know what I was talking about. I’m just gonna go get some sleep.”
“All right, Maria.”
Maria reaches up to feel around the doorframe for the extra house key. Kyle then sees the handprint on her stomach.
Maria quickly pulls down her green T.
“Goodnight Kyle.”
“Goodnight Maria.”

Maria is sitting on her bed when she hears someone call her name.
She then leans forward to look out her window. And sees Michael standing there.
“I have to talk to you.”
Maria goes and lets him in.
“I can’t imagine how you must feel right now, I mean, I’ve thought about telling you a thousand times.”
“You have, me?”
Michael gives her a small smile.
“Sorry, I just, uh, I just keep picturing you in that dress, with the uh, the blue swirls…on it.”
“Forget it, it was a long time ago.”
“Oh my God. That’s, that’s right. I can’t believe I actually wore that thing!”
“I had that dress in kindergarten, I didn’t know you until the third grade. Did you like, read my mind or something?”
“No, I-I don’t read minds. When I healed you, I made this, this, I don’t know, this connection. And I got this rush of images…an image of that dress flashed into my mind, and, I knew how you felt about it.”
“How did I feel about it?”
“It was the single supreme embarrassment of your life. But your Mom made it for you, she was so proud of it; she’d never made a dress before, so you wore it, for her sake.
Maria nods her head in shock. Michael looks deep into her green eyes and says.
“I’ve never tried this before, but maybe I can make the connection go the other way. So you can see, you know that, that I’m still me.”
Michael advances until he’s in front of her.
“I…I have to touch you.”
Maria nods. Michael then gets ready to put his hands on both sides of her head.
“Now just take deep breaths and try to let your mind blank out.”
Maria swallows and then answers with an “Okay.”
Michael then tries to focus on the task at hand but fails. His eyes fall to her peach colored lips. Her lipstick almost matched her hair. He started out slowly. Lightly touching her lips, and then it heated up a little. Michael could tell that she was scared, but he could also tell that she wanted him.
Then suddenly Maria gets a rush of images, Michael running through the woods all alone. The fear that Michael felt when the farmer found him, and took him to the orphanage. Michael’s first day of school when he finds Max and Isabel, and how he sees her. In the halls at school talking to Liz, and since they were in third grade.
** I could feel everything he was feeling. I could feel his loneliness. For the first time I was really seeing Michael Guerin, I saw me as he saw me, and the amazing thing was, in his eyes, I was beautiful. **
Michael pulls out of the kiss.
“ Did it work?”
Maria nods and Michael looks at her embarrassed.
“Well I guess I’ll leave now. See ya.”
Michael turns to leave.
“Michael wait!”
Michael turns to look at her. And all that Maria can do is stare at him.

**[Michael Guerin has put a force on me. It’s like my whole life changed in an instant. It’s just so ironic that when something like this finally happened to me, it was with an alien. I mean I don’t think my life could get any weirder.]**
Maria watches Michael walk down the hall. Then makes her way to the band room.
“Oh, hey Alex. Have you seen my book bag anywhere?”
“No, I haven’t. Can I talk to you for a second?”
“Yea, sure Alex what’s up?”
“Well, I’m you’re friend, and I’m Liz’s friend too, so if you lie to Liz, it’s sort of like lying to me.”
“Alex, what did Liz say to you?”
“Well, frankly it’s vague. I mean, everything needs to be put through the Liz filter. But, she said something about how she found blood on your order book. What’s going on?”
“Alex, Liz is a total drama queen. Okay, usually I’m the drama queen. But Liz can be one when she wants. You know that. Nothing is going on.”
“O-ok, well look. All I care about is that you’re ok. So you’re…you are right, you’re okay?”
“I’m okay.”
Alex smiles at her.
“All right.”
Maria laughs.
Alex looks at her.
“And whatever happened is…over now?”
“It is totally over. I swear Alex.”
Maria crosses her heart with her fingers.
Alex looks at her, and puts his thumbs up and starts walking backwards toward the door.
“It’s okay Alex.”
Alex smiles at her again.

** Part 6 **

[The Principal and Deputy walk into the band room]
The Principal points to Maria. The deputy then goes and talks to her. Maria then takes in a breath.
“Ms. DeLuca, the Sheriff needs to ask you some questions.”

Maria plays with her hair as she waits in front of the sheriff’s desk. Within a few minutes Sheriff Valenti walks in.
“Afternoon Ms. DeLuca. Your mother said it would be okay if I talked to you. I’m sorry to have to show you these.”
He leans over to show her some pictures of a dead body with a handprint on the chest.
“ This man was found dead, no apparent cause of death. Except that. What do you make of that mark?”
“I’ve-I’ve never seen anything like that before.”
Valenti leans back in his chair.
“ Kyle said he saw a similar mark on your stomach.”
Maria looks at him.
“Well, he was wrong.”
“I’m sure, Kyle’s got a pretty wild imagination. I’m gonna need to see for myself Maria.”
“Come on sheriff, I mean, I told you that I spilled ketchup, and I, I said that like, a thousand and five times you know?”
“Maria, please?”
Maria stands up and pulls her shirt up to show him the mark. But there’s nothing there.
“The mark faded on the corps too. What do you know about a kid named Michael Guerin?”
She looks at Valenti for a minute.
“Michael Guerin?”
The sheriff studies her for a sec, then he responses.
“Mmmm Hmmm…”
“ Um….I don’t really know him that well.”
“Was he one of the kids at the Crashdown that day?”
Valenti looks at Maria harder now. Maria felt like his eyes were going to burn a hole through her. He then spoke to her.
“I see.”
“Can I go home now sheriff?”
Valenti then sets the book-bag that Maria had stuffed her uniform with the bullet hole in.
“Just one more thing Maria. Somebody turned in this book-bag , it is yours isn’t it.”
Maria just looked at him for a moment. She tried to hide the surprise on her face.

Michael is at wrestling practice in the gym. And Maria stops to talk with him. While Sheriff Valenti is talking to the government agent he has called in to help investigate this case.

“A shot was fired, there’s a bullet hole in the dress. I’m telling you, the girl was shot.”
The Agent stands and puts the outfit in his briefcase. Valenti looks at him.
“What are you doing?”
“I have a flying saucer sighting in Phoenix, an accountant in Barstow who thinks he’s Jesus. Both cases are more solid then this. I’ll have the dress checked out at the lab, call me sheriff, if you ever have anything…real.”
Getting upset the sheriff then lets it out.
“Listen, you guys told me to call you if I saw anything. Well, my son saw that handprint.”
“I’m sure he did.”
“What happens now?”
“Have the lab check out the dress. I’m gonna handle this case in the proper manner without getting to personal. I suggest you do the same.”
The Sheriff then puts his foot down.
“I’m not walking away from this. I’m gonna be a part of this investigation.”
“Sheriff, do you know what everyone used to call your father? Sergeant Martian. You don’t want to end up like him.”
“Agent Stevens, I was eight years old when my father discovered that corpse, my whole life I thought he was as crazy as everyone else did. Crazy to believe, now I’m not so sure.”
The agent gets ready to leave.
“Thank you Sheriff. Your work is done now, we’ll take it from here.”

Michael and Maria have gone into the art room to talk.
“Okay, here goes. I need to know the truth Michael. I need to know, everything. Or I’ll- I’m just gonna go to Valenti and I’m gonna tell him everything I know.”
Michael looked at her.
“You wouldn’t.”
“Try me.”
He then let out a breath.
Maria then pulls a piece of paper out of her pocket.
“Okay, all right. Here we go. Where did you come from?”
Michael’s eyes meet hers’.
“I don’t know. When the ship crashed I wasn’t born yet.”
“So there was a crash?”
“All I know is it wasn’t a weather balloon that fell that night.”
Maria was starting to get nervous.
“Okay, The ship crashed in 1947. But you’re only sixteen.”
“We were in some kind of incubation pods.”
Maria looked at him and raised her eyebrow.
Michael cleared his throat.
“Max and Isabel are also…uh…”
“Okay, well, that, answers, um, that question. Um, what powers do you have?”
“We can connect with people, as uh, you know.”
Michael then looked at Maria and saw that she was blushing.
“And we can manipulate molecular structures, and…we can…”
“Wait, what does that mean?”
Michael then walks over to a clay sculpture on a nearby table and moves his hand in front of it, the shape changes.
Maria just stares at it.

Hi all I'm working on part 7 as we speak I have aleast two or three pages to write. *happy*

**Part 7**

Maria looks up from the sculpture, and looks over at Michael.
“That’s, uh, that’s how I healed you.”
“Michael, who else know about this?”
“No one.”
“What about your parents?”
“We don’t tell anyone. We sorta think our lives depend on it.”
“So when you healed me you risked all of this getting out didn’t you?”
“It was you Maria.”
Maria smiles at him. She then starts to speak.
“Um Michael, Valenti showed me this photo of a corpse. A murder victim, it had the same silver handprint on it’s chest.”
Michael focus in on her eyes to see if she was lying. She wasn’t.
“That can’t be.”
Maria’s eyes refluxed back into his.
“The photo was marked 1959.”
“That’s impossible.”
Michael then sees the expression on her face change.
“What, what is it?”
“Kyle saw the handprint on my stomach and Valenti found my waitress uniform with the bullet hole in it. He just asked me if you were in the café during the shooting. Michael, he suspects you.”
Michael then starts to leave.
“I have to go.”
“Michael wait, go where? Where are you going? Michael wait! Michael!”
Maria runs out into the hall to stop him but loses him in a crowd of people who run by dressed for the festival.

Isabel is getting ready for the festival on her bed. When Michael knocks on her door, and then opens it.
“Forget the festival. It’s time to leave. Where’s Max? Grab some of his clothes and lets go we’ll find him on the way.”
Max is walking down the street from the local mart. When he sees Michael Jeep pull up and cut him off.
“Come on Maxwell, get in we’re leaving tonight.”
Max looks at him confused.
“What? Well what about my stuff?”
“Do worry Isabel packed up some of it.”
“Well, what about your stuff?”
“I’m wearin’ it.”

Maria is on her bed struggling through her geometry homework. Liz comes in and gets in front of her, dressed for the Crash Festival.
“Maria, before I go to the crash festival I want to know everything. And if you don’t tell me the truth right now, I’m going to Valenti myself and tell him everything I know.”
“What do you know Liz?”
“Well…uh, I-I know that Michael was in the diner that day, and I know that he went up you went you were shot and, did something to you. And I know that the one person in the world that I thought I could completely trust, is lying to me.”
“You have to promise me that you are not going to flip out.”
“Maria, it’s me Liz I don’t flip out.”
A few minutes later we see Liz, walking out of the Crashdown café. Maria follows shortly behind her.
“Liz where are you going? Liz!”

Meanwhile back in the jeep, Max, Michael, and Isabel are in a heated discussion. Max leans over the front seat, in the Jeep.
“So is this picture what we’re seeing is there’s more of us?”
“One more Max, at least there was in 1959.”
“Well then there’s hope. I mean if we can find him, he can tell us where we came from, what we are.”
Isabel looks over at her brother.
“Max calm down, we had one potential relative 40 years ago, all we know about him is he was a potential killer.”
“Yeah, Max for once listen to your sister. She has a point, I mean once a long time ago I would have done anything to find some one like me. But I’m not that same person anymore, heck Hank isn’t even the same person since he met Sarah.”

Back in Liz’s silver Volzwagon.
“Maria there has to be another explanation for all this. I mean aliens come on Maria. Aliens do not exist they are not real there is not way.”
“Liz, I know this is hard for you but its true.”
Liz just looks at her at shakes her head.
Then all of a sudden Michael, Max, and Isabel drive by them.
“Oh my god Liz that’s them. Turn around Liz!”
“Maria, I can’t turn here it’s against the law.”
“Maria what is going on with you? Who are you? I mean…”
Maria then grabs the wheel and turns the car around, in the middle of the road.
“Maria! Have you gone crazy? You have you’ve lost your mind.”
“Liz I am not! Please, just catch up with them its not like were in the Jetta. We’re in your car.”

Michael and company see Valenti patrolling and hastily Michael turns down a side alley, that is blocked another car, but before they get backup, Liz pulls in with her car blocking their escape.
“Great. Just great Michael.”
“Calm down Isabel.”
Maria and Liz get out and start to walk toward them, Michael, Max and Isabel follow suit.
“Maria, what are they doing here? You never said there was three of them.”
Maria looked at Liz.
“Sorry about that.”
“I don’t believe this. This can’t be happening.”
“Um, Liz knows.”
Max steps forward.
“I thought you said she wouldn’t talk? Michael.”
Liz looks at Max.
“Look I promise I won’t tell anyone.”
Max then starts towards Liz. Liz in return backs up a little bit towards Maria. Max then looks at them. Then says something to them.
“Move your car NOW!”
Max then became surprised by the fieriness in his voice and then added. “Please, move your car.”
Maria looks over at Michael I don’t think you should try to leave. It’s just gonna show people that you’re guilty.”
“Maria s’ right. You all would look guilty.”
Max looked over at Liz guilty of what? Saving your friends life?”
“Okay here we go. I think I may have come up with something. You know an idea. But we’re going to have to work together here. You know to throw Valenti off.”
Max looks at Maria and says.
“We’re not together. Our lives are at stake, not yours. Now move the car.”
“Max, this can’t last forever. I know I’m the last person you would think would say this. But I’m tired, of the secrets. And I don’t want it to last, anymore.”
Max looks over at Michael he can’t believe what he is hearing.
“Michael what are you saying?”
“What I’m saying Maxwell is that I’m tired of being the one who is always running.”
Maria looks at the two aliens as the argued with one another.
“Okay look I can’t change what happened. But if you run, Valenti will soooo figure out that I was you. You’ll be proving it for him.”
“She’s got a point Maxwell.”
“Michael I can’t believe that you’re going to side with her. I would expect something like this from Max not you.”
Michael glared at Isabel.
“I’m not taking anyone’s side. All right!”
“Well then pick a side Michael.”
Michael let out a sigh.
“She should move the car. And I’m going to turn myself into Valenti.”
“Michael we said we were leaving. We can’t leave without you.”
“Yes you can. Now go!”
Isabel looks at Maria.
“What’s your idea?”

Back at the festival, Liz and Isabel walked together through the crowd of people. Alex then passes them.
“Nice mask Alex.”
“Isabel, hey. Liz.”
Liz stops and looks back at Alex.
“Hey, Alex.”
“Nice hair Liz.”

Back at Kyle’s house.
“Maria you know we don’t have to go to the crash.”
“I know, but I’m already in costume.”
Maria and Kyle then leaned into a small kiss.
“It’s going to be fun Kyle I promise. Okay, I’m going to meet you in front of the podium in a hour and a half, right?”
Kyle looks at Maria and tries to smile for her.
“Right. Hour and a half.”
“You bet. See ya.”
Maria waits until she’s sure Kyle inside and not watching her. Then she turns to hide behind a tree to call Michael and Max. After a few rings Max answered the phone.”
“Hey, Max. It’s on. I’ll meet you and Michael in 20 minutes.”
