Title: Coming Back to Me
Author: Anniepoo98
Rating: Pg-13 (maybe NC17, later but not now)
Summary: Max and Isabel return to earth after five years. Read the rest.
Disclaimer: Now you all know that I don't own Roswell, so if you have seen them on Roswell, they are not mine. I do own the story.

This are the newest chapters... the rest is on the repost board or the other board.

Part Seventeen… This one is not a POV part…just thought I would let you know

Tess entered the empty factory about five miles south of Roswell on 285. In a corner to the left, she saw the iridescent glow of the Granolith. Some had thought it had equaled her death, but in reality it was her salvation. Because she knew the location to the Granolith, Kivar had sparred her life when he arrived on earth.
That is when a harsh voice brought Tess out of her thoughts. "Where have you been?"
"Spying," she answered without turning around.
"Are you really that stupid," the voice asked her.
Tess turned to face him. "What did you say, Nicholas? I am not stupid."
"What if you had been caught? You risked exposing us all just to get a look at your stupid obsession."
"So, you know that Max and Isabel are back."
Nicholas shook his head. "Of course we knew. A disturbance that great in the atmosphere does not go unnoticed. The great king is back, just in time to see his little family suffer."
"So what are we going to do about them," Tess asked. She had wait five years for revenge, and now it was with in her grasp. Liz would finally pay for the anguish she caused. "Alexia should have been my daughter," she thought. "Max should have loved me."
Tess could hear footsteps behind her. She turned and was face to face with Kivar. "Tisk, tisk. You shouldn't be thinking such jealous and angry thoughts. It causes one to be careless. You will have your revenge soon. We all will."
"But when," Tess whined.
"On the eve of the little princess's birthday. It marks when she will begin her accession to the throne. She will start coming into greater powers than anyone of us can possible understand. Either she will join us or we will kill her."
"And the others," Tess asked.
"We will kill them most likely, unless they prove to be useful."

Part Eighteen… Liz's POV

I think I fell asleep as soon as my head hit the pillow. I held Alexia in my arms and she was curling her fingers in my hair. But, by the time I woke up the next morning, those fingers had become permanently tangled in my hair. In fact, that was how I woke up. Alexia moved her hand and my hair went with it.
"Ow," I moaned, coming out of my deep sleep.
"Sorry Mommy," Alexia whispered.
"That's okay, baby, but why are your hands so sticky?"
"Uncle Kyle gave me some candy," she said with an impish grin.
I rubbed the spot where some of my hair was now missing. I now noticed that the hair that was left there was a bit sticky. "Uncle Kyle is a dead man."
Alexia giggled as she rubbed her eyes. "You always say that when Uncle Kyle gives me candy."
I patted her on the head. "I know, but Mommy lost hair this time."
"Can I see the baby? I want to see the baby," Alexia told me as she got out of bed.
"Only if Michael and Maria are awake and they say it is okay."
Alexia nodded and headed toward the door. "Where are you going," I called out after her.
"Uncle Michael and Auntie Mawia are awake. So is the baby. I'm going to go see them."
I thought for a second, then called Alexia back over to me. "Baby, you can sense that much?"
Alexia looked at me curiously. "Yes Mommy."
"Are your powers getting stronger?"
"I think so. I don't know. Maybe it's 'cause I'm getting older."
I kissed her on the top of the forehead. "I think your right. You can go see baby now."
Alexia bounced out of the room and into mine. I went down the hall to the bathroom. After taking a shower and changing, I decided it was time to make some breakfast.
I walked down the hall toward the living room. I saw Kyle sleeping on one of the couches. I was surprised that he wasn't at home.
That is when I notice Max sleeping on the other couch. He looked so peaceful lying there. I walked over to him, reached out, and moved a piece of hair away from his eye.
Suddenly, the connection formed. It wasn't Max that formed it either. It was me. I saw so many images, but not ones from memories. It was like see things that had not happened yet.
I saw Isabel with Kyle, each holding a baby. Next came an image of Michael and Maria with a toddling boy. Then, Max making love to me on my bed. I could stand all of these images, but then the last one came into my head. It was Tess. She was standing with Nicholas and a man I presume was Kivar. Tess was attempting to lure Alexia away from Max and I.
The images stopped. When I opened my eyes, I found Max staring into them. "What was that," he asked me.
All I could do was shake my head. I was too preoccupied thinking about what Tess was doing in those images. How could she still be alive? And what did she want with Alexia?
I could feel my head throbbing. How did I form that connection? I had never done that before. I could feel all my energy drain from me. Max must have gotten up from the couch and grabbed me, because the next thing I could feel was Max's arms around me.
"Are you okay," he asked, his voice full of concern.
Shakily, I attempted to regain my footing. "I don't know. What were those images, Max? Were they the future?"
"I'm not sure."
"But, you saw them, right?"
"Yes."
I walked into the kitchen and sat down on at the table. Max followed me. He knelt down beside me and took ahold of my hand. "Are you going to be okay," he asked.
I smiled at him. Even after all these years, he was still worried about me. "I'm fine, Max. I just have to sit for a minute."
Max nodded his head. His hand reached up and caressed my cheek. I closed my eyes, allowing myself to feel the sensations his hands caused just by touching my cheek. Then, I felt his warm lips press against mine. The kiss was short, but it was enough to take my breath away.
As our lips parted, I noticed Alexia standing in the kitchen watching us. She looked so content. Max blushed a bit when he saw her standing there, but I knew it was okay. "I'm going to take a shower," he told me as he got up and left the room. When Max passed Alexia, he patted her on the head, gently.
"So, did you get to see the baby?"
Alexia nodded as she climbed into my lap. "He was so little, Mommy. And his name is not baby, it's Colin."
"Well, don't we know it all," I teased her.
"Yep," she said matter-of-factly. "But I do have a question?"
"What is it, baby?"
"How long until my birthday?"
"You know the answer to this one. Three weeks remember. September 27." Then I paused for a second. "Why do you ask?"
"It's an important day."
I began to tickle her stomach. "Is it really," I teased her again.
She giggled. "Yep."
In that moment, I could help but thinking that Alexia was right. In more ways than one, that date was important. Her birthday was important.

here is the new part...part 19. hope that you all enjoy it.

Annie*big*

Part Nineteen… Michael's POV

It was wonderful to wake up to the sound of my baby boy crying. He is so tiny and perfect. For the first time in my life I feel truly complete. I had found a big part of what I was missing in Maria, but Colin finished the puzzle.
I could immediately feel the connection between Colin, Maria, and I. Just like Liz and Alexia. When I think about it, I feel sorry for Max because of all he missed. However, it is not enough for me to forgive him. He has given into all this destiny stuff. I had hoped that Alexia would change all of that, but she makes it worse. She has a role in it now.
"What are you thinking about, Spaceboy," Maria asks as she snaps her fingers in front of my face.
I look at her. "About how you tried to rip my arm off last night."
She jabbed her elbow into my ribs. "I was in labor. Therefore, you deserved it."
"How did you come to that conclusion," I asked her.
"Easy. Eight months ago you impregnated me."
"It takes two, Blondie. In fact, I think you seduced me."
Maria began to laugh and went to jab me again, but Colin started to fuss. I picked him up. "That's my boy."
That is when we heard Liz call out to us. "Hey, who wants breakfast?"
I yelled out to her. "We will be out in a second."
Maria threw on Liz's robe and headed over to the door. "Are you coming Michael."
I waved my hand at her. "I'll be out in a second." Then, I turned my attention back to Colin. "Hey buddy. It's your Daddy, but I think you know that. I promise I'll do everything I can to keep you safe and happy. You and your mom. You both are my whole life."
Colin mustered his best baby smile, which basically means he drooled on me. I smiled back at him. Then, I laid him back on the bed and surrounded him with pillows. "Now, stay where you are. Take a nap or drool some more, but let your mom and me get some food. Then, we will take you to our home. I think your going to like it."

By the time I had reached the kitchen, everyone else was already eating. "Hey, did anyone save me some?"
Isabel looked up from her plate of eggs. "Well, you are usually the first one at the table. We're just taking advantage of the fact that we can get some food too."
I just stood there for a second. It was the first time Isabel had sounded like herself since they got back. I saw the looks on everyone else faces. Apparently they thought the same thing. Isabel even seemed a little shocked that those words had come out of her mouth.
Alexia seemed to notice the awkwardness of the moment because she got out of her chair and climbed into Isabel's lap. "She's right, Uncle Michael. You eat everything."
Liz could help laughing, and soon the other had joined in.
"So this is gang up on Michael day, I see. Fine…fine. Just wait. I will get you all back for this."
Suddenly, I could feel Colin cry. So could Maria. "Michael, eat something. I'll take care of Colin." She got up from her chair and headed down the hall. A few seconds later, she came bounding out of the room holding the baby in her arms. "They've been here."

Howdy all. here is the new part. this is also the last part that I am going to post on the old board. I hope that you all like it.

Annie *smile*

Part Twenty… Maria's POV

I had never experienced anything like that before. I had going back to Liz's room because the baby was crying. I picked Colin up of the bed and walked with him around the room. As I passed the windowsill, I looked out the window, letting my hand graze the sill. Suddenly, I started getting flashes.
I saw Liz carrying Alexia in her arms standing in the bedroom where I was standing. Then, I saw a face I never wanted to see again. Tess. That very name filled my soul with hate. She was looking in the window at Liz and Alexia. Then, there were two shadowy figures standing behind her. I could make out one as Nicholas, but I didn't know who the other one was. Lastly, I saw Max and Liz kissing on the bed and I could feel Tess's jealously.
I had to get out of that room. I ran towards the kitchen where the others were. Michael stood up as soon as he saw me run in. "They've been here," I said aloud.
"Who has been here," Michael asked as he walked over to me.
"Tess, Nicholas, and someone who I don't know. Tess isn't dead. They know Max is here. They also know about Alexia."
"How do you know that," Max questioned me.
"I got a flash when I touched the windowsill in Liz's room."
Liz walked over toward Isabel, who was holding Alexia. "And you saw Alexia in the flash."
I nodded. When I did, Liz picked up Alexia wand walked out of the room with her. I could tell that Max wanted to follow her right away, but he had switched into leader mode. There were questions he needed answered. "Have you ever gotten flashes before?"
I handed Colin to Michael and walked over to Max. I made the attempt to stare him down, which was really hard seeing as how I'm about 3 inches shorted than he is. "Sometimes, but I have never opened the connection. This time it was me. But that is not the big issue right now. Tess is alive and she knows about Alexia. She knows you're here. And let me tell you, she is pissed. I could feel it with every fiber of my being. Liz is probably in her room packing to leave as we speak. She is my best friend, and I can almost sense what she is thinking."
Max tried to say something, but I cut him off. "Do you honestly think she wants to stay here when she know Tess knows how to find Alexia. Tess killed Alex. Liz has never completely gotten over that. She still can't visit his grave. She is not going to stick around and put her daughter in danger. Whether it is her destiny or not. You have to go to her."
Max looked into my eyes. He knew I was telling the truth. Without saying a word, Max left the room. Everyone else just seemed stunned. Either at the bomb I had dropped or that I stood up to Max. I didn't care. I wanted to go home with Michael and Colin as soon as possible.

Annie*happy*


Part Twenty-one… Max's POV

I realized what Maria was saying was right. I left the kitchen to find Liz and Alexia. Sure enough, they were in Liz's room, packing. "Liz, I'm sorry."
"I don't need an apology, Max," she said without looking up from the blouse she was folding. "I need to get Alexia out of here."
"You can't leave, Liz," I started to explain.
Liz placed the blouse in a suitcase and turned to look at me. "I can do whatever I want Max. And right now, all I want to do is protect Alexia. Tess is still alive. She will stop at nothing to harm Alexia, you, and I. I had that flash this morning. We both know that this only the beginning."
I walked closer to her. "But that is not part of the…"
Liz started to get angry. "Don't even say prophecy, destiny, or any of that other crap. I don't want to hear it. Stop being a leader and think about your family. Come with us… please."
Liz was pleading with me to go with her. The tone of her voice was enough to break my heart. "I would love nothing more to take both of you away from this. But there is more to it than that Liz. Tess is alive, and that means she has control of the Granolith."
"So," Liz snapped, trying to be callous to what she was hearing.
"Alexia and the Granolith are connected. It can find her anywhere, and she can find it."
Liz walked straight over to me. "What am I suppose to do Max? Let her hurt my daughter."
"I will never let that happen." It was all I could think of to say.
"How can you stop it," Liz yelled at me. "You didn't even know that Tess was still alive."
Suddenly, Alexia stepped out of the closet where she had been hiding. "Stop yelling," she cried.
Liz and I both turned to face her. Alexia walked over to Liz. "I wanna stay, Mommy. I don't wanna go away. Don't fight no more."
I couldn't help myself. The tears started flowing from my eyes.


Sorry that this is so short...it was kinda of an awakward part to write, so I cut it sorta short so I could change POV. heres a teaser... next part is Liz POV.

Remember...spread the love because we all need some right now. It is the only thing that will make things better.

Thank you all for all the feedback. You know that I love it lots. I am so sorry that it has taken me so long to get this part posted. Life has been crazy and this week looks like it is going to be the same. I hope to post at least one more part this week, but I dont know if I can. My 21 b-day is this thursday, and my friends are planning something. I'm not sure what it is, so I am just being prepared. But at least here is part 22.

Thank you all for reading...

Annie*smile*

P.S. Scifinut111...dont be mad at me*sad*. Lovin is in the works, but Liz and Max have stuff to work out first.

Part Twenty-two… Liz's POV

I just stood there not knowing what to do. These past two days have turned my world upside down completely. Now my daughter was in danger. All I wanted to do was get out of Roswell as fast as could be. But there was Max. In some ways he was right. With the Granolith, Tess and who ever was working with her could find us anywhere.
At that point I wondered if Max even cared about us. Was he here to protect us from what was going to happen or to love us? To be part of our family.
That is when Alexia began to yell at us. It is humbling to have a four-year-old yell at you and be right. Max's tears showed that he was feeling the same thing. Maybe it was something more. Max had started sobbing and collapsed to the floor.
Alexia climbed into his lap and gave him the biggest hug her tiny body could muster. "My daddy, don't cry. Things will be okay. I love you."
Max wrapped his arms around her tightly, like he never wanted to let go. With tears still in his eyes, he placed light kisses on Alexia's forehead. "I love you, baby. My precious little baby."
Alexia looked into his eyes. "I'm not a baby. I'm going to be five soon."
Max gave a little chuckle.
So what was I suppose to do? I could feel the love between Max and Alexia now. Their bond was forming, just like mine with her. Would leaving be smart? Deep down I knew the answer, but I hated to admit it. Finally, I gathered enough strength to say what I had to say. "We will stay Max. But, I promise to kill anyone who goes after Alexia."
Then, I walked over to where they were sitting. Running my hands through Alexia's hair, I gather even more strength. She was my strength. What would I do without her? I could feel myself losing control, and I didn't want to do that with everyone in the house.
"I have to go out for a bit," I told Max without looking him in the eyes. "Watch Alexia. Don't let anything happen to her Max." Those words came out sort of threatening. Max thought so too. His back became ridged as they passed through my lips.
"I will," he replied.
I walked to the bedroom door, grabbed the coat that was hanging on the doorknob, and walked out. I had to get some fresh air to clear my head. I wouldn't be gone long, but I needed to be alone.

Remember...I'm holding my stories hostage. My demands are feedback. Give me what I want and I will give you want you want.

Part Twenty-three… Alexia's POV

I'm only four years old, but I do know when things is wrong. Mommy is scared, really scared. She thinks the bad yellow hair lady is going to hurt us. I think that's why she went bye. Maybe its cause she's mad at Daddy too.
Daddy is really confused. I'm starting to get his feelings too. I know he loves me and Mommy. He just doesn't know what to do. That's why he is giving me a big hug. I'm not going to tell him I can't breath.
"Alexia, baby, is there something you want to do today," Daddy asks me after Mommy left.
"You want to play tea party, Daddy," I ask him. I point to the balcony. "Out there."
Daddy nodded his head. "Sure baby."
We climb through the window and sit down at my chairs. "Mommy says this was her balcony. Is that true?"
"Yes it is," Daddy told me. "She used to love to sit out here and write in a little book."
"Why?"
"So she could remember everything that happened to her," he said.
I wonder if Mommy wrote bout me. "Did she write bout me?"
I can feel Daddy getting sadder. "I'm sure…no, I know she did. You are the most special thing in your Mommy's life. She loves you so much. I know she wrote about you."
"She loves you too, Daddy," I tell him as I pass him a teacup. Boy, is he holding it all wrong.
"I'm not so sure Baby. Daddy has done some things that have hurt your Mommy really bad. I think she is really mad at me."
I look into my Daddy's eyes. "Did you mean to?"
Daddy looked at me funny. "What do you mean Alexia?"
"Did you mean to hurt Mommy? Cause if you didn't mean to, it doesn't count. Like when I spilled my milk one time. The glass broke and everything, but I didn't mean to do it. Mommy was a little mad, even though she said she wasn't. I could feel it. But she told me it didn't count cause I didn't do it on purpose."
Daddy got a smile on his face. "No, baby. I would never hurt your Mommy on purpose. But this is a little different."
"Why?"
Daddy tried to speak, but he didn't. His mouth opened, and closed, and opened again. He was lookin for an answer, but he didn't know where to find one.
"Mommy loves you Daddy. I can feel it here," I told him, pointing to my heart. "She missed you so much. She would cry and cry bout you."
Daddy just looked at me. Then, he got up and picked me up and hugged me tight again. I couldn't breath again, but Daddy really needed a hug. "I love you Daddy."
"I love you too Alexia."


Remember...I am holding my stories hostage. My demands are feedback. You get the rest*approve*.

Hey Scifinut...I just wanted to answer your questions....

One: Liz left to face some demons she had. Granted it wasn't truly logical, but when you have that much on your mind, you aren't really logical. Max knew that she wasn't really going to listen to him, not that you could blame her, so he let her leave. You will find out all the demons later...not to mention I really needed her to leave the apartment to face the demons. *smile*

Two: Max doesnt have all the answers he needs. He also just found out about Tess. See, he thought that the Granolith and Tess were gone. So did everyone on his planet. The predictions would have stopped when the Granolith was sent to earth. Therefore, he doesn't know much more than anyone else. He knows that Alexia is suppose to be the leader of his planet and that her mother would be his true love (aka..Liz). So Max is confused. He doesn't know what to do about the situation with Liz. He also is trying to figure out why Liz and Maria are getting powers to make connections on their own. They had never done that before. Also, there is one more thing that Max has not told Liz, but you will have to wait to find out what that is *smile*.

I hope that helped some. I like questions, keep asking*wink*

Here is the new part...I know it was posted on the other board, but I wanted to keep this one up to date too*happy*

Part Twenty- four… Liz's POV-again

I left the house, knowing full well that I was a bad
idea to wander around alone, but I didn't care. I needed
to think without anything or person interrupting me. I
knew that Alexia would be safe with Max, even though I
didn't want to admit it.
He just made me so mad. I know that there are things
he is not telling me. Max just needs to tell me
everything. Otherwise, Alexia could get hurt. I am willing
to fight anyone, even Kivar, to keep that from
happening.
All of this runs through my head, mixed with my vision
earlier and the sight of Max holding Alexia. So I just
keep walking. How much of it is my fault?
If I hadn't believed Future Max everything would be
different. Alex would be alive, Tess wouldn't have the
Granolith, and Max would have never left. Would I have
been married to him by now? But what about Alexia?
Future Max never mentioned her.
I stop at that thought. That's when I notice where I am.
The cemetery, with Alex's grave right in front of me. I
haven't been here for five years, since Alex died, but I
could still find it somehow. I look down at the marker. It
looks brand new.
"Isabel fixed it for me," a low male voice said from
behind me.
Well, I nearly jumped out of my skin. I turned around
only to find Alex standing behind me. "Alex," I gasped.
"Is that you? How are you here? Are you still alive?"
Alex began to laugh. "Still the scientist, I see. And no, I
am not alive, but I have a connection to you. We always
have, Liz."
I reached over and hesitantly touched Alex's form. He
felt real. Before I could think twice, I jumped forward
and gave him a big bear hug. I could feel the tears run
down my face. "How come I haven't seen you before?
Why didn't you help me to find your killer? I could have
stopped Tess…"
I could feel his fingers rubbing my back, trying to
comfort me as I cried. "You have to let go, Liz. Nothing
could have saved me. This is how things were meant to
be."
I pulled back to look at him. "No, it isn't. If I had just let
things run their course, you would be alive. Of course
the world would have ended. So what would the right
choice have been?"
Saying that was like lifting a weight off my heart. I had
often driven myself crazy with that question, but I had
never said it out loud. Now, I've sent it out to space
with the hope someone would answer.
However, Alex was confused. "What are you talking
about, Liz? How did you mess with the course of
events?"
I hesitated for a moment. I had only told Maria about
what had happened. No one else knew, not even Max.
After a moment, I decided that it couldn't hurt to tell
Alex. I hated keeping the secret, anyway. I always had.
"A future version of Max used the Granolith to come
back here. He told me that fourteen years in the future
the world would end because Max and I were together.
Tess would leave, and everyone would die."
Alex shook his head. "That's a lie. Nothing like that
would ever happen. You two were meant to be
together, meant to have Alexia. She is their chosen
leader and earth's savior."
I fell to the ground. How was it all possible? There
couldn't be two separate futures. It wasn't possible.
Which was the truth?
"She mindwarped you, that is the only explanation,"
Alex said firmly.
"She couldn't have, Alex. There were too many things
that only Max could have known."
Alex looked into my eyes. "Liz, I don't know how she
managed it, but that is the only way it makes sense.
You were always meant to be with Max, to have his
child, and so much more. You have no idea how
important you are."
"I'm not important, Alex. I mess everything up. In fact,
the only thing I have done right is Alexia."
"No she's not. You're special, Liz Parker. I have always
known that. By the way, thank you."
I looked at him. "Thank you for what?"
"Her name. It means a lot to me."
"You mean a lot to me, Alex."
"I know, and I am glad. But you have to face your
demons, Liz. Don't run from them. Also, allow Max to
help you. You need him now more than ever. He came
back for you."
"Thank you Alex."
"I love you, Liz. Remember that, please."
"I will."
As soon as I said that, Alex faded from sight. Not more
than two minutes later, I heard footsteps from behind
me. "Who's out there," I call into the night.

Hope you likes*happy*

Part Twenty-five…Max's POV

I see her kneeling in front of Alex's grave. She turns to look in my direction. When she sees me, she jumps a little bit with her hand pressed to her chest. "Damnit Max, you scared me. What are you doing here? I thought you were watching Alexia."
I walk closer to her. "I was, but you've been gone for hours, Liz. I was worried. So, I asked Isabel and Kyle to watch her, and I went looking for you."
An angry look crept across Liz's face. "You have to protect Alexia, Max. Not me. I am not as important as she is. She has a destiny, after all."
I cross the space between us. "You're important to me Liz. I can't live without you. Please just trust me."
Liz stood up in one quick movement. "How can I when you don't tell me everything? Why should I trust you, when you don't trust me?"
I look down at my shoes. That hurt. But Liz was right, how could she trust me, after everything? I force myself to look up, to meet her eyes. And I utter the phrase I've been eager to say since I'd returned. I clear my throat. "Because I love you," I say softly. My voice cracks with emotion.

Liz crumbled, her face soft. Tears fell down her cheeks rapidly, and she wiped them away. I stepped forward to embrace her, but she backed away cautiously.
"I need to know the truth," she said, looking me straight in the eyes. "I have to know what you know. How can you say you love me, yet not be completely honest with me?"
I know that she is right. I have to tell her. "Alexia's powers will start growing when she turns five. They will grow faster and more powerful than anyone could ever imagine. If someone wanted to hurt her or turn her away from us, now would be the time. Before her fifth birthday."
I felt a sharp sting across my face as Liz slaps me. I turn my eyes back to face her. The tears are flowing freely now. "How could you not tell me," she asked in a low tone, almost a growl. "How can I protect her if I don't know what is going to happen?"
"I didn't know how to tell you," I tell her as I feel the tears form in my own eyes. "I didn't want to lose the both of you. Destiny drove us apart before and I saw it pulling us apart again. I thought that this would finish us completely. But I see that I was just being selfish, that my keeping things from you was what is keeping us apart."
"So, is that all you know," she asked, seeming like she was not quite sure she wanted to know the answer.
"Yes," I whispered. I felt so alone in that moment. I could remember a time when I was able to completely open myself to Liz. But that was years ago. So many things had happened. Most of them were my fault. I had pushed her away to keep her safe many times before. I was just my first line of defense.
But this time was different. She needed to know everything. I hated keeping things from her. However, I hated this awkward pause even more. Everything was out in the open and I was waiting for Liz to pass judgment. A judgment she had the right to make. Whether to trust and love me again or not.
The silence in the cemetery was defining. My heart felt like it was beating a mile a minute as I watched her pace back and forth. I knew she was thinking everything out, just like she used to. She needed to do this. So, I waited quietly.
"I love you, Max," she said softly, looking at me from a few feet away. It was all the answer I needed. I crossed the grass and took her into my arms. I held her in the tightest embrace I could manage. I was never going to let her go again.
She placed a light kiss at the crook of my neck, where her head had been resting. I let out the breath I held for what seemed like forever. I looked down to see her dark brown eyes looking back at me. "No more secrets, Max," she whispered.
"Never." I tilted my head down and brushed my lips against hers. She eagerly met them. It was a light, tender kiss filled with more promise than any destiny could ever hold. And whatever our destiny turned out to be, I now knew we would face it together.

Annie*happy*

Part Twenty-six… Isabel's POV

I open my eyes. I know that it is morning, but there is still darkness all around me. My eyes slowly adjust as I register the warm body sleeping next to me. I roll over and look at the most angelic face in the world.
Over the past few weeks, Alexia and I have grown quiet close. A couple of times I have woken up in the morning to find her lying next to me. I want to stay in bed, but I know that I won't fall asleep. So, I decided to get up and get some coffee. I quietly got out of bed, grabbed my robe, and headed to the kitchen.
I was surprised to see Liz sitting at the kitchen table. "You couldn't sleep anymore," she asked as I walked to the cabinet to get a coffee mug.
"Nope," I told her as I poured the hot, black liquid into the mug. I then took a seat across the table from her. "How about you," I asked.
"No," she said as she took a long sip of her coffee. "I had another dream last night."
I felt my breath catch in my throat from fear. Since Max and I had returned, Liz had been getting visions and dreams left and right. So had Maria and I, but none as intense as Liz was having.
I will never forget the night Liz returned from the cemetery with Max. He had finally managed to tell her all about the prophecy. He had opened up to her. And she opened up in return. Liz told us all about future Max and what she knew about the Granolith. She also told us about Alex appearing to her. He said future Max was a mindwarp of some kind, but we didn't know how.
Therefore, these past few weeks, we have been trying to work out the answers. All we did know is that Tess had the Granolith, she was in league with Kivar, and she always had been. We also knew that Kivar wanted to get his hands on Alexia before her 5th birthday.
September 26. Today was the final day. Once the clock struck midnight, Alexia would begin to receive all her powers, and those powers would grow at an alarming rate. I looked Liz straight in the eyes. "What did you dreams about?"
Liz returned my gaze. "The same stuff. Tess was trying to coax Alexia away from Max and I. Kivar and Nicholas are with her. The Granolith. But this time, there was a big flash of light before I woke up."
I took a drink of my coffee before grabbing the Tabasco sauce on the table and pouring some in. Liz cringed a little. "What," I teased. "It's good, you should try it."
Liz shook her head. "Never, Isabel," she told me, sticking her tongue out at me.
I looked over at the couch in the living room. "Where's Max?"
Liz got up from the table and began pouring another cup of coffee. "Asleep in my room. He sensed my dream and laid with in bed with me, trying to comfort me. I guess he was more tired than I was."
"That makes sense," I agreed. "He has been up night after night, worrying. He is going to make himself sick. He can't do that if we face…"
I let my voice trail off. I knew we were avoiding this subject…of what today was. Liz sat back down in her seat. "Not if," she spoke up after a minute of silence. "When, Isabel. We both…we all know that they are coming. We just have to be prepared. Alexia is not to be along today, at all."
"I got it captain," I said, giving Liz a salute, in the attempt to lighten the mood. "Sorry, I couldn't help it."
Liz gave me a small smile. "I know Isabel." She got up and grabbed the cup of coffee. "I think that I am going to wake Max up. Michael and Maria should be here soon."
Liz headed down the hallway, but there was one question I still had to ask about her dream/vision. "Liz," I loudly whispered down the hall.
"Yeah," she replied, turning around.
"Did you see anything about Kyle and I?"
A wicked smile grew across Liz's face. "Yes I did. More than I ever wanted to know in my life," she teased.
I gave her a pouting look. "Liz, you're mean. Don't even get me started on you and Max. Talk about to much information."
Liz scrunched her face together. "I am going to wake your brother up now." With that, she turned and opened the door to her bedroom.
I sat at the kitchen table ponder things for a moment. Kyle and I… together… with a family. I could feel the smile creep across my face. I just thought about how time can heal many things, even deep scars. I hand unwilling traced the scar on my jaw. "This will heal too," I whispered out loud.
I got up from the table and walked back to the guestroom to check on Alexia. She was still asleep. I sat down on the edge of the bed, watching her chest rise up and down. Today was in one way or another going to change her life forever. I was just going to make sure it was for the better.

Wow everyone, thanks for all the feedback. You all are too good to me. Well, here is the next part. I hope that everyone likes it. Enjoy*happy*

Annie*happy*

Part Twenty-seven…. Maria's POV

I can feel Michael's hand on my shoulder, urging me to let go of Colin, but I don't want to. Time is passing and I know that each minute is precious, so I hand my baby over to my mother. Jim gives me a reassuring smile, but it is not enough.
I look at Colin one last time through the window of our car. He opens and closes his eyes while latching his hands on his left foot. He had just discovered that foot yesterday. I can feel the tears swell in my eyes. I turn to Michael. "I want to be there when he discovers his right foot, Michael."
Michael takes his eyes off the road for a moment to get me a reassuring smile, but I know that this is killing him too. "You will be. But you know that we had to leave him," he said, trying to convince himself as much as me.
"I realize that. I know that we have to be there to help protect Alexia. Trust me, I want to be there. I'm just scared that's all. I'm scared for Colin."
Kyle leaned forward and gave me a hug from the backseat. "Dad and Amy won't let anything happen to him. They will guard him with their lives."
Michael nodded his head. "And if there is anyone that could scare the life out of an alien, it's your mother, Maria," he joked. "Hell, she still scares me sometimes. That is one woman who's bad side I never want to get on."
I giggle a little bit. It was true, my mother could put the fear of God into Michael. Actually, she was pretty good at it. However, that was not enough to ease my fears for what today held. They were coming; Kivar, Nicholas, and Tess.
That name seethed through my mind like acid. I could never hate anyone as much as I hated her. She killed my best friend. She had murdered Alex in cold blood, and didn't even think twice about it.
Michael placed a hand on my shoulder. "You're think about Alex aren't you?"
I look into his eyes. "Yeah, I am. You know, that is the only good thing about this situation."
Kyle gave me a confused look. "What about this situation is good?"
"Payback," I tell him simply. "Tess is going down. I am going to be there to help. Payback is a bitch, and when it comes to her, so am I."
Kyle sat back against the seat with a big grin across his face.
"I can see you in my mirror on the visor, Kyle. What are you laughing at," I asked him.
"I was just thinking that your mother is the not the only one the aliens should be afraid of."
When he said that, all three of us burst out into a nervous laughter, which faded into an eerie silence. The rest of the car ride was spent in that silence. Michael pulled the car into the alley behind the resturant.
I grabbed Alexia's birthday gift out of the back of my car. Just because destiny was going to bite us in the butt today, did not mean I wasn't going to celebrate Alexia's birthday. Besides this little outfit was too cute to pass up, and it even came with a matching one for her favorite doll. She would love it.
I walked up the back staircase to the apartment, followed closely by Michael and Kyle. The door was lock of course, so I knocked. Isabel answered the door, still dressed in her pajamas. "Oh hey," she said as she allowed us in.
I looked around the room. Alexia is sitting on the couch watching cartoons, but there was no sign of Max or Liz. "Where are Max and Liz," I asked Isabel.
She walked back over to Alexia, sitting down next to her on the couch. "Liz went into her room to wake Max about twenty minutes ago, but she hasn't come out yet," Isabel said with a slight grin on her face.
I couldn't help laughing. By this time, we all had an idea about what Max and Liz were doing. Personally, I thought it was about time. After they both opened up to each other, things started to get pretty heated between them. I even caught them making out in the back of the resturant last week, just like they use to.
I looked at both Michael and Kyle, only to find them trying their hardest not to laugh. But that was before Alexia decided to speak.
"Mommy and Daddy are really happy," she stated.
None of us could hold our laughter in at that point. In fact, Michael fell on the floor because he was laughing so hard. Alexia just looked at us like she was not pleased with our actions.
"What is so funny," she asked.

Howdy everyone, I just have a question for you all. I was thinking of writing a sequel to this story once I am done with it. What do you think? Should I? I have a couple ideas, but I am going to wait to see what you think before I make any decisions. Let me know*happy*

Howdy all. I am so sorry that I havent posted this part sooner, but I wanted to make sure that everything was perfect. That is why it took me so long. Thanks for having patcience with me. Also thank you so much for the feedback... and answering my question. You all are too good to me, do you know that??? Thanks.

I think that I am going to do a sequel. Pretty much everyone was for it. Nana, I promise you that my stories will not stop coming. Just because I am writing a sequel to this one does not mean that I wont start others. In fact, I am working on a couple of ideas.... nothing solid yet, but ideas just the same.

BTW... this part is sort of a double part. It starts out with Max's POV then switches to no POV. I hope that doesnt confuse anyone. Also... this is the long awaited lovin scene. This is only the second NC-17 part I have ever done... so be kind in you comments. Let me know what you think of it.

Part Twenty-eight… Max's POV

I could feel her getting closer. Turning over in her bed, I look up into the most beautiful face in the world.
"Good morning, sleepy head," Liz said softly. "How are you feeling this morning?"
I just stare at her in awe. The sunlight filtering through the blinds makes her face practically glow with an angelic radiance. "I am better now," I tell her.
"I see you resort to flattery," she teased.
"It's not flattery," I said looking into her eyes. "It's the truth. I love you so much, Liz."
She placed the cup of coffee she had in her hand on the nightstand, leaned over, and placed a kiss on my lips. I wrapped my arms around her as the kiss deepened, and pulled her into bed with me. I shifted until the two of us were lying next to each other. By this time, my fingers had woven themselves in her glorious hair.
"Max, we can't," she moaned against my lips. "Not today."
Just like she asked, I stopped my assault on her lips. I looked into her eyes. They were burning with passion, but she was right. We needed to remain focused on Alexia.
I moved to get up from the bed, then I felt Liz wrap her arms around my waist. I could feel the warmth of her cheek pressed against my bare back. "What are we going to do," she asked softly. "How are we going to stop them?"
"Well, when Isabel and I were on our planet, our powers grew. I know that Michael's powers must have too. They were suppose to grow as we got older. I can sustain a large shield with little effort now."
I could feel Liz's warm breath as she sighed against my back. "There has to be more we can do."
"Kivar has weaknesses, Liz. Isabel being the biggest one of them."
Liz drew away from me. I shivered at the loss of her warmth. "We can't do that to her. She has been through too much already."
I nodded my head. "I said the same thing. The months that Isabel was held captive by Kivar were some of the most painful of my life, and I know they were much worse for her. But she won't listen to me. She wants to face him, she says she needs to."
I saw Liz wrap her knees into her arms and pull them close to her chest. "So, we use Isabel as bait and hope that everything else goes okay. Don't you have weapons or something to take them out? Your powers cannot be the only defense we have against Kivar, Nicholas, and Tess."
I know that she is adding up the odds in her head, and I hate the fact that I don't have anything else to offer her. Any weapon she could use to kill the people that have caused so much pain in her life. To kill the ones who are after our daughter. "I will do whatever it takes to keep Alexia safe. I promise, Liz. Nothing will happen to either of you."
A small tear slipped down her cheek. "I know that Max. I just hate all of this uncertainty. I like to have things planned. I guess that is still the scientist in me." She paused for a second, then her hand came up to cover her mouth. "Alex," she mumbled.
I was confused. "What about Alex," I asked.
"He said that I was important. More than being Alexia's mother, that I was special. What did he mean by that?"
The only part of the prophecy that I knew was that Liz was my true love, the mother of my child. But I didn't know if she had a further role in what was going to happen. I looked into her eyes. "I have no idea, Liz. I only know what I have told you."
Liz sprang from the bed and began to pace back and forth. "What if I have powers?"
I opened my mouth to speak, but Liz continued. "Ava said that you changed me, all those years ago. You saw me in New York, with Isabel's help, of course. Maybe, if I have powers, they will be stronger too. I can use them to help you."
I sat on the bed processing all that she was saying. "How could I have been so stupid," I say out loud. Liz just gives me a puzzled look. "There is no way that Isabel could have projected your image to me all the way in New York without getting extra energy from someone else. Especially then because we didn't even know full range of our powers. How could I have been so stupid?"
Liz reached out and began to caress my cheek. "You didn't know that this was going to happen. But now we know something they don't. We can use that to our advantage. Now all we have to do is figure out what I can do."
I was listening, but the way she was touching my face made me ignore everything else except her gentle touch. I reach out and place my hands on her hips. I could feel her shudder under my fingers.
"Max," she scolds, but I cut her off before she can say anything else. I pressed my lips firmly to hers, using my hands to glide her closer to me. I could feel her hands touching the back of my head, her fingers running through my hair. I nip her bottom lip, hoping that she will allow me access to her sweet mouth.
She does. Our kiss got deeper and deeper. Each moment bringing us to a point we have only been to once. "Max," she whispered against my lips.
"I know Liz," I reassured her. We can't be together right now. But Liz responds to me by continuing to kiss me. We are already too far-gone to stop now.

**********************No POV**************************************

Max slowly laid back on the bed, pulling Liz with him. His hands glided under her shirt, finding her breasts, and rubbing them gently though the soft material of her bra. Liz whimpered as her lips clung to Max's as though her life depended on it.
Max couldn't form a coherent thought as he enjoyed the sensations of kissing Liz like he wanted to, making love to her mouth with long, languid stokes of his tongue. However, they both wanted, needed, more than just each other's lips. They needed each other completely. Max continued to massage Liz's breasts through her bra, tweaking her harden nipples. Everytime he did this, Liz let out a little moan, but never broke away from his mouth.
Finally, Liz wasn't able to take it anymore. She needed to feel his hands on her bare skin. She pulled away from Max, and quickly pulled off her shirt. A second later, Max unhooked her bra. Her breasts fell free and he gasped to see this beauty before him.
"You are so beautiful," he managed to say as he brought his mouth to envelope one of her nipples. Max teased it with his tongue, making it painfully hard.
"Max," Liz gasped breathlessly.
He pulled away for a second. His chest heaving and his lips swollen from their activities. "Is something the matter? Do you want me to stop?"
Liz shook her head. "Never," she sighed. "I need you. I need you now."
Max lost control right then and there. Liz pulled off his T-shirt just before he went back to devouring her mouth. He then made his way down her neck while his fingers found the clasp on her jeans. In a matter of seconds, he managed to open them and pull them down as far as he could. Liz moved off of Max and rid herself of the jeans.
He used the moment to slide down the sweat pants he was wearing. Liz returned to him on the bed and Max positioned himself above her. All that separated them now was a pair of panties and boxers.
"Are you sure," Max asked. He knew deep down that is was probably the last thing they needed to do that day, but he could not deny the passion he felt for Liz. Yet, if she though they should stop, he would.
Liz looked intently in Max's eyes. "Yes. I needed you inside me."
With that, Max began slowly kissing his way down Liz's stomach, pulling her panties off at the same time. Liz's hands ran up and down Max's back, until she came in contact with the elastic on his boxers. She tugged on them, trying to be rid of their only barrier. Max helped her, and soon nothing separated them.
Max slowly slid into Liz's wet heat, feeling her tight walls around him. She moaned his name as he began to move in and out of her. Max leaned down and captured Liz's lips in a searing kiss. With each thrust, she whimpered against his lips.
After building a frantic pace, Max could feel Liz's was tighten around his manhood, pushing him over the edge. With a one last thrust, they both peaked, crying out to one another.
It was in that moment that they both knew they would be joined forever. This was different than the first time they made love. Then it had been out of a sort of desperation. A desperation to cling to each other when circumstances were pulling them apart. Now, even with the upcoming battle, it was more about them. They made love because they wanted to prove that they would be together forever, not because they couldn't be together.
They lay there wrapped in each other's arms, both completely undone. That is until they heard a knock on the door. "Are you two done," Maria taunted through the door. "We have some planning to do."


Please let me know what you think.... I am really nervious about this part*sad*

Part Twenty-nine… Michael's POV

"I hope that Maria didn't just walk in on them," I stated. I wouldn't have put it past her. But her boldness is one of the reasons I love her so much.
"Why can't Auntie Mawia see Mommy and Daddy if they were just playing," Alexia asked.
I bit my lip to keep from laughing. Isabel, on the other hand, couldn't help herself. I have to admit that it was nice to hear her laugh. Ever since she and Max got back, her smiles were few and far between. Most of the time, it was only Kyle or Alexia that elicited one of her rare giggles. I wonder if there is anything going on between those two?
I felt Alexia pull on my pants leg. "How come," she asked.
Well, I should have remembered that Alexia was not the type to forget anything. "Because sometimes Mommies and Daddies like to play by themselves," I told her, doing my best to keep a straight face.
Maria breezed back into the living room. "They should be out in a second. And "playing." Is that what you are calling it now?"
I walked over to her, wrapped my arms around her waist, and place a light kiss on her lips. "What would you have called it," I whispered in her ear.
Maria pulled back a bit. "I don't know, maybe the alien bop."
Kyle spit out the water he had been drinking. He managed to spray most of it across the coffee table, carpet, and himself. "Warn me the next time before you say something like that," he said as he got to get some paper towels.
"Ewww," Alexia exclaimed. "That was gross, Uncle Kyle."
Isabel motioned for Alexia to come over to her. "Sometimes guys do silly things. Uncle Kyle usually does the silliest things of all," she told Alexia as she pulled her into her lap.
"I heard that," Kyle called from the kitchen.
I saw both Isabel and Alexia began to laugh. Just then, Max and Liz emerged from the room. Maria turned around in my arms to look at them. "Did you have fun?"
Liz looked down and I could see the tips of Max's ears getting red. Alexia jumped out Isabel's lap and ran over to Max. "Daddy, what were you and Mommy playing? Was it the alien bop like Auntie Mawia said?"
Liz walked over and swatted Maria on the arm. I just laughed. "You are evil," she told Maria.
Max just bent over and picked up Alexia. "I guess so," he shrugged. I could tell that he just didn't know what to say. It wasn't like he had ever been caught in this situation before.
Then, he saw me laughing. "Just wait until you get caught in this situation, Michael," he warned. "I bet you won't be laughing then."
I let go of Maria and walked over to the couch. The one Kyle hadn't spit on. "I guess not, but I have some time before that happens."
Liz shook her head and took a seat next to Isabel. "Why don't we talk about what we are going to do. I do not want any surprises that we aren't ready to handle."
I thought about what Liz was saying. She was right. We had to handle this in a way that they, especially Tess, wouldn't be expecting. Suddenly, I think of the perfect idea. "The UFO Museum."
"What," Max asks, giving me a puzzled look.
"We should hide out in the Museum. I renovated last year, so chances are they won't know the layout. Not to mention, it is a bomb shelter which means only one entrance."
"But isn't it opened today," Kyle asked, walking back into the living room.
I shook my head. "No. I had to close it because the "Alien Aquatic" display busted. It managed to flood the entire of the front of the place."
"Oh," Maria chimed in. "Why don't you tell them why it busted."
I shot her one of those you're-going-to-pay-for-that looks, but she chose to ignore it. "Go on," she tormented. "Tell them why the case holding the display shattered."
I rolled my eyes. "I was practicing using my powers last week when a customer came in and startled me. Next thing I knew, the whole tank had shattered."
Maria just stood where she was, giggling. "Laugh it up," I tell her. "You didn't think it was so funny when I accidentally blew up the microwave."
Maria's smile quickly faded. "Spaceboy, that is because the microwave is useful, where as that display was ugly."
I got up, walked over to her, and stood straight in front of her. She tried to stand me down, but it wasn't going to work. "So, you thought my display was ugly."
She nodded her head. "Yes, I did."
I looked into her eyes, leaned over, and placed a kiss on her lips. What can I say, fighting seems to turn us on. I guess that our kiss was getting pretty out of hand because I heard Max cleared his throat. I pulled away from Maria's lips, then turned to face Max.
He still held Alexia in his arms, but she was covering her eyes with her hands. I could also see that the others were trying their hardest to contain their laughter. Liz got up from the couch and walked over to us. "Did you guys need to go play the alien bop in our room for a bit?"

Part Thirty… Kyle's POV

We all decided that Michael was right. The UFO Museum was the best place for us to hide. So quietly, we took shifts sneaking down to the Museum. I went first with Isabel to check the place out.
The place was dark and empty when we first entered the door. Michael had given me the key. I quickly unlocked the door, ushered Isabel inside, and locked the door behind us. Cautiously, we way down the steps. At the bottom, Isabel was the first to step on the carpet.
"Oh my God," she exclaimed in a loud whisper.
I must have jumped three feet in the air. "What," I cried out.
Isabel cringed at bit. "I sorry," she said quietly. "The water was cold and I'm wearing sandals. I didn't mean to scare you."
I could see the color rise in her cheeks. I gave her a smile and reached out my hand to her. After pausing for a second, she took it. We then made our way to the back of the Museum.
"I think that everything is okay," I told Isabel, my voice returning to normal.
"Me too," she agreed. "I'll head into the office and give the others a call."
I watched her as she walked to the office. Over these past few weeks, it hurt me to see how much she had changed. Her mannerisms were much quieter, more unsure than the Isabel that left us five years ago. I hated Kivar more every time I thought about it.
Isabel returned a couple of seconds later. "Max is bring Liz and Alexia over in about ten minutes. So I guess we should just double check to make sure that everything is secure."
I nodded at her, but didn't make an effort to move. "What," she asked after catching me looking at her.
"Are you sure you are ready to face him," I asked.
She winced at bit at the thought, but then nodded her head. "Yes. I can't hold on to what he did to me forever. It would kill me slowly. Facing Kivar is the only way I will ever be rid of him completely… one way or another."
I rushed to where she was standing. "I am not going to let him hurt you, Isabel. I couldn't bear it if he did."
I could see the tears running down her face. "Alexia is more important than me. She is the one who needs your protection, Kyle."
"Your important to me," I managed to say.
Isabel's head shot straight up when she heard that, looking me in the eyes. I could see that the tears were coming faster, rolling down her cheeks, one at a time. I reached out and carefully touched her face, wiping the tears away with my thumb. I knew in that moment that Alexia was right. I loved Isabel, and I couldn't let anything happen to her.
But I couldn't force her, not in a moment like this. She didn't need that. However, the funny thing was I didn't have to. Slowly, I saw her face coming towards mine. She stopped only couple inches away from my face. I could feel her warm breath against my lips.
"Isabel," I whispered, but she pressed her forefinger to my lips. A second later, she replaced it with her lips. The kiss was light and gentle, but it was enough for me to feel the love she had inside. Love for her family, love for Alex, and her love for me. This emotion came across stronger than the others, and I could tell that this was Isabel's way of tell me something. Telling me that she loved me.
As soon as the kiss broke, I told her the words I only just realized were true. "I love you, Isabel Evans."
Isabel wrapped her arms around my neck. I held her close, letting her cry. After a couple of minutes, I could feel her trying to speak. But I stopped her. "Isabel you don't have to say anything right now. Just let me hold you."
I could feel her nod against my shoulder. I held her like that until we heard someone knock on the front door of the Museum. I pulled away from Isabel and walked up the stairs to see who it was.
It was Max, Liz, and Alexia. I quickly unlocked the door for them, and ushered them inside. "The place looks pretty secure," I told Max. "I think that Michael was right. This is probably the best place to hold out."
Max nodded and Liz just tightened her grip on Alexia. I could tell that it was taking all of Liz's power right now to keep calm. During these past five years, she has become like a little sister. I know how much she loves Max and Alexia. I have watched Alexia from the day she was born. I was not going to let Tess or whatever alien power come in here and ruin the best things in Liz's life.
"Michael and Maria are going to head over in about 15 minutes," Max stated.
Isabel walked over to him. "Did anyone notice you three coming over? Did anything seem or feel strange," she asked him.
I raised an eyebrow. "Feel strange? You guys have some sort of super alien intuition or something."
Isabel turned to me and smiled. "Yeah… sort of. Sometimes we can feel when things are off balance, when there is something not right."
"Okay," I said. "So I'll mediate, you can do you Zen master thing, and we will kill them with our good vibes," I joked.
But that was enough to cause Liz to snap. "This is no time for joking, Kyle. Things are serious. This is serious."
I didn't even try to defend myself. It wasn't the time. Plus, I knew she didn't mean it. I saw Max walk over to her, but she shook her head and walked into the backroom of the museum, Alexia in tow. I walked over to him, placing my hand on his shoulder. "She'll be okay, man."
Max nodded at me. "I know, I just hate they both have to be in this situation."
"It suck," I told him plainly. "But kicking yourself in the ass is not going to help. Now, kicking Kivar, Nicholas, and Tess in the ass would."
He chuckled a little bit. "I like that plan."
I turned my head to look at Isabel. She smiled at me with gratitude. "All we need is Michael and Maria, then this little party can get started," I thought to myself.

Part Thirty-two… Maria’s POV

Well, it looks like the game is the same, but the location is different. We are waiting. All of us, just sitting here. Kyle is over by Isabel, doing his best to keep her calm I think. Michael and Max went to make sure that everything is secure. They have only checked all the doors and possible entrances five times since we got here. I guess that you can never be too sure.
However, Liz is the one I am worried about the most. She seems to have shut down, focusing all her attention on Alexia. I mean she is watching every step the little darling takes. She jumps at any little peep out of Alexia’s mouth. What the hell happened to her before I got here? I know that she was tense before, but this is definitely the extreme.
Quietly, I make my way to the backroom, the last place I saw Liz and Alexia head to. Sure enough, I find Liz sitting on a couch in the office, clutching Alexia close to her. “Chica, you gotta let her breath a bit.”
Liz jumped a bit and gave me a look. I am really glad that she hasn’t tapped into any of her powers because that look would have killed me for sure. “That isn’t funny,” she said harshly.
I went to the couch and sat down next to her, reaching out to stoke Alexia’s dark hair. “It was a little funny,” I told her, trying to cover her lack of humor. “Listen, I know that this is stressful, but you can’t stop anything by holding on to her that tight.”
“I know,” Liz whispered. “But I like to feel that she is still here.”
I gave Liz a sympathetic look. “I would do the same thing right now if I could,” I confessed. “I want to hold Colin so badly that it isn’t even funny. But that wouldn’t be what is best for him, and this is not what is best for Alexia. Look at her Liz. She hasn’t spoken a word since I got here and she is shaking like a leaf.”
Liz loosened her grip, turning Alexia around in her arms. I could see the realization hit Liz’s face. I hated to point it out, but it was true. Alexia was pale as snow and she was shaking so badly that I could see if when I was standing in the door across the room. Liz let out a gasp, then gave Alexia a little hug. “I am so sorry baby,” she whispered barely loud enough for me to hear.
“That’s okay Mommy,” Alexia managed to say, but her voiced cracked a bit.
“Oh no baby, it isn’t,” Liz continued to apologize. “But I am not going to do it again,” she told Alexia, leaning forward and placing a light kiss on her forehead.
I looked at Alexia. “Would you like to play a game,” I asked her, doing my best to break the current tension.
“Hide and seek,” she told me, her face brightening a bit. “It’s my most favorite game.”
Liz gave her a funny look. “I thought that tea party was your favorite game.”
Alexia giggled a bit. “Only cause Uncle Michael and Uncle Kyle don’t know how to play right. They always play silly.”
I had to laugh. Just the thought of Michael holding one of those tiny little tea cups in his hands with his pinky stuck out was an image the could make anyone laugh.
Apparently, Liz was thinking along the same lines because she laughed a little too. “Okay,” Liz finally managed to say. “You hide and we will find you. But stay in the main room and find me if anything seems weird to you.”
“Yeah,” Alexia exclaimed, getting a little more life in her face. “Count to hundred and find me.” With that, she ran off to the main room.
Liz and I followed her, counting loudly at first, but getting quieter as the numbers passed. After twenty-five, Liz turned to me. “Do you have a weird feeling,” she asked.
I gave her a curious look. “What to you mean?”
“Isabel was talking about alien intuition earlier, just before you got here. She asked if anything felt off. I was just thinking about it.”
“Is that why you were so upset,” I asked her.
Liz sighed. “It was part of it. Kyle also made a crack about positive vibes and I sort it snapped. I just couldn’t handle jokes at that point.”
“Joking is just a part of Kyle,” I said, giving her a smile. “I think that is how he handles things. Yet, I know that he doesn’t want to see a thing happen to Alexia. He really adores her.”
Liz nodded. “I know that, it’s just I was upset. But honestly, you don’t feel that anything is weird?”
I thought for a moment. Everything looked fine. However, deep down, my senses were telling me something was out of place. Like there was something that was altered. “I do feel a little weird,” I admitted outloud.
Liz raised her eyebrow. “How? What feels weird?”
I took a deep breath. “I feel kinda like something is trying to invade my senses, but everything looks fine,” I said, trying to cover up my paranoia.
“Looks can be deceiving,” she told me. “I feel the exact same way.” Liz closed her eyes for a moment. A couple of seconds later, they shot open, and Liz cried out. “Alexia.”
We both rushed further into the room, over towards the entrance. I think that we saw the same thing at the same time. Alexia was walking towards another version of Liz, who was standing close to the door.
I knew immediately who it was. “TESS,” I screamed outloud. The image around us began to flicker and the other Liz faded into the curly haired blond that I detested with a passion.
Both Liz and Max ran towards the door, the rest of us not two steps behind them. Tess grabbed Alexia. I could hear Alexia cried out. “Mommy. Daddy.”
But it was too late. She was gone. Tess used her powers to shatter the glass on the door and she ran into the street. Seconds later, a car could be heard screeching away.
Liz followed them out to the street. She collapsed in the street, crying. I could feel that Michael wanted to use his powers, but Alexia was in the car and he wasn’t going to risk hurting her. Max collected Liz into his arms, but he didn’t move out of the road. He watched the car take his baby girl further and further away from him. We all did. After a couple of moments, we all began heading back into the museum. Everything had changed. We thought that they were going to bring the battle to us. Now we had to take it to them.
Isabel was the first to speak when we had gather back into the museum. “She must have been here all along. Damnit,” she cried out in frustration.
Max gently put Liz back on the ground, but she held tight to him, trying to regain her footing. “She knew that this would be the first place we would hide,” Liz managed to say softly. “It was exactly what we did the last time, when the skins attacked.”
“So what do we do now,” Kyle asked. I could tell that he desperately wanted a plan. Hell, we all did. We were playing on their terms now.
“Well, know where they took her would be nice,” Michael said in frustration.
Suddenly the look in Isabel’s eyes grew brighter. She turned to Liz. “You can connect with her, just like you did with Max in New York. We can try to reverse the connection she has with you, so instead of her knowing what you are thinking and feeling, you will know what she is going on in her mind.”
Liz’s eyes grew wide. “How do I do it,” she asked, eager to do anything.
Isabel sat on the floor, motioning for Liz to sit in front of her. Liz did just that. Max was only a couple of steps behind her. He knelt behind her, rubbing her shoulders reassuringly, in an attempt to make her as calm as possible. Liz and Isabel connected hands as the rest of us watched. I have no idea how long passed, seconds or minutes, but they felt like hours. Finally, Liz’s eyes flew open. “I know they are taking her.”

So what did you think???? Leave me feedback so I know. The end is in sight and I have some really good ideas for the sequel*happy* P.S. I promise that I will have parts to my other stories ASAP*happy*

Part Thirty-two… Isabel’s POV

Sitting in the back of Liz’s car, I thought of the words Alex spoke to me almost a month ago. "You cannot let him control you." They played over and over in my mind as I tried to steady my nerves. Above all, I knew how right he was.
Then I thought of our plan. I actually couldn’t tell whether it was foolproof or foolish. In either case, it was the only plan we had.
Most of it was Max’s idea. After Liz connected with Alexia and found they were taking her to the old soap factory, Max began ranting to himself. A lot of it was incoherent gibberish. I had never seen him like this. In those years back on Antar, he had been so level headed, giving orders and adopting the role as king. That wasn’t the Max I was seeing now, pacing back and forth.
Yet, all of a sudden, he turned to face us, this expression on his face like a lightbulb went off in his head. He turned toward Kyle. "Do you remember how everyone go out of the factory when your Dad raided the party in tenth grade?"
Kyle thought for a second. "Yeah, I think so. Why?"
"Because chances are they don’t know about every way to get into the factory," Max began rambling again. "We find out which ones they don’t know about and sneak in."
Michael gave Max an unsure look. "Then what? I mean they have the Granolith and Alexia."
"All we have to do is get Alexia back," Max told him. "Then they will lose the upper hand. Forever."
I glanced over at Liz, who was now shaking her head. "No," she finally said. That one work contained more conviction than any other word I have ever heard her speak. "We get Alexia out, then we take care of Kivar, Nicholas, and Tess."
Max walked over to Liz and placed a hand on each of her shoulders. "It’s too dangerous, Liz. We can’t risk it."
We can’t risk them coming back to take her again," she told him. Liz was crying, and I could feel the emotion roll off of Max in waves. We all could tell that both of their hearts were near the breaking point. Max ran one of his fingers under her chin, raiding her face so he could look into her eyes. "Trust me Liz. I would kill Kivar, will kill Kivar, but now is not the time. Alexia is too weak. We need to get her and bring her home."
"Then what," Liz cried. "How do we know what they will go later, how often they will come back to haunt us. Please Max," Liz pleaded. "I want us to be safe."
Max took a deep breath and nodded. Liz lunged forward, clinging to him like her life depended on it. A silent understand came over the group. Alexia was top priority, but we were to kill if we got the chance.
Looking back on this, sitting in the back seat of Liz’s car, I knew what I had to do. Vilandra was no longer Kivar’s for the taking. She had become me, Isabel Evans, and I wasn’t going to let him destroy my family again.
We parked about a mile away from the factory, got out of the car, and reviewed the basics of the plan. I could feel Kyle looking at me the whole time, but I knew if I glanced in his direction I risked losing my resolve. I couldn’t afford that now. No matter how much I just wanted him to hold me and tell me that things were going to work out, I needed to remain level-headed.
Kyle passed out the weapons he borrowed from his Dad. There wasn’t much they would do against Kivar, but they might have some luck if we into any skins. Kyle took the rifle. Maria had a baseball bat because she was staying on the outside of the factory to keep an eye on the cars.
Michael and Max decided, in the end, to stick with their powers. Max had developed the ability of throwing energy. While Michael’s power was the more powerful, Max could still pack quite a punch. Liz took a small pistol, and Kyle gave me his hunting knife. "Do whatever you have to do to keep safe, " he whispered to me as he handed over the knife.
I looked into his eyes. Those big, honest eyes full of concern. "You too," I said softly. "I need you. You know that, right?"
Kyle quickly leaned over and captured my lips with his. He felt so warm and reassuring that it was breaking my heart to think he might get hurt. I could feel a tear slip from my eye, and I pulled back from him. "Promise that we will finish that as soon as this is over," I asked after taking a deep breath.
"Okay," he promised, smiling slightly at me. "It’s a deal."
I gave him a quick hug, then walked away. Over and over again I kept repeating my part of the plan. "Be the bait. Distract them long enough for everyone to sneak in. You can do this."
As a reflex, I reached up and traced the scar along my jaw. The slight pucker that contradicted the rest of the smooth skin was just as definite as ever. "I can do this," I stated out loud.
When I reached the common entrance for the factory, I opened up my senses to see if there were any immediate dangers just behind the doors. When I was sure it was safe enough, I flung open the door and strolled in, imitating my best Ice Queen attitude. "Honey, I’m home," I called out.
I noticed the Granolith standing off to the left of the entrance. However, when I turned towards it, someone stepped in my way. It was Kivar. "Vilandra, my sweet. To what do I owe this pleasant surprise? Have you come to change sides when things weren’t going your way, just like the last time?"
I took a deep breath, filling my lungs and holding the air there for a moment or two, then let it back out. "I doubt that," I told him, stealing myself for the backlash. "As far as I can remember, I died the last time. So, if I did choose your side, it didn’t do me much good."
A flash of anger flared across Kivar’s features, then died back down again. He moved towards me. I wanted to run in the opposite direction, but my feet failed me. "Ahhh Vilandra. Did you learn nothing while you were back on Antar," he asked. The next thing I could feel was a fist balling my hair at the nape of my neck. "It is not smart to aggravate those who are stronger than you. I guess you will have to learn that lesson again, Vilandra."
I could feel my nerve slip away. I started to think wasn’t strong enough to face him. Then, something flashed into my mind. I remembered Kyle’s face just before I came into the factory. He saw Isabel, not Vilandra. My head cleared and I noticed exactly what Kivar was doing. Back on Antar, he would call me Vilandra and punish me terribly when I tried to insist on being called Isabel. He knew I was a different person. But it had taken me until now to full realize that.
With a free hand, I reached around my back and pulled out the hunting knife. "My name is ISABEL, " I yelled at him before taking the knife to his face and cutting a long gash along his jawline.



Let me know what you think... I REALLY hope that you enjoyed it.

Just to clarify, she didnt cut his neck. She cut his face along the jawbone. It is higher up, about where her scar in this story is. I hope that helps. Scifinut... I promised that I was finishing this, and I promise that I will*happy*

Part Thirty-three… Max's POV

I saw Kivar grab hold of Isabel. I wanted to run out of our hiding spot that second and kill him. Apparently Kyle did too. I saw him take a step forward, getting ready to rush ahead, but Liz grabbed ahold of his arm. She held on to mine too.
I looked over at her, noticing that she was not focused on either of us. Liz was actually using us for support. I followed her line of sight and my blood boiled at what I saw. Tess was dragging Alexia away from where Kivar and Isabel were.
"Max," I heard Liz whimper from beside me. I turned to her, but a second later, we heard Kivar cry out. I watched as he clutched his face. Isabel was holding the hunting knife Kyle had giving her. She raised it again, but Kyle rushed forward from our hiding spot. Isabel saw him, lowered the knife and kick Kivar hard instead.
I ran out towards where I had last seen Tess and Alexia, Liz on my heels. Suddenly, an energy blast hit my side, sending me across the room. I opened my eyes and saw Liz running towards me. Then, I saw Nicholas. "Get away from here," I yelled at her.
She stopped in her tracks. And, as though she heard something, Liz turned around. She saw Nicholas coming towards her. I could see her struggling to move, but it was like her feet were stuck to something. A scream escaped from her lips as Nicholas got closer and closer.
Nicholas laughed. "Now you will get to watch me kill the only things that are important in your life, you highness."
Anger stirred in my belly. A primal force surged in me, and I cried out. "NO!"
The next few moments passed in slow motion. Both Liz and Nicholas turned to look at me. I raised my hand and sent out an energy blast. Nicholas backed away from Liz, and she was finally able to move. She ran towards me as the blast ripped through Nicholas's body. He cried out in pain, but only for a few seconds. Then, he fell to the ground… dead.
"Oh God, Max. Are you okay? How did you do that," Liz asked, the questions forming faster than she had time to voice them.
"I don't know," I told her, weakly. The world around me was blurry, and I knew it had taken most of my energy to kill Nicholas. "Go find Alexia," I ordered.
Liz bent over my head, placing a kiss on the top of it. "I'll be right back," she whispered, then ran off in the direction we that last saw Tess drag Alexia.
I lay on the ground, trying desperately to move so I could help Liz. After a couple of minutes, Michael came up beside me. "Maxwell," he questioned, not knowing whether I was alive or dead.
I opened one eye. "Yeah," I said as loud as I could. "Where have you been," I joked.
Michael leaned over and helped me to sit up. "I was helping Isabel and Kyle take care of Kivar. Well, actually, I was killing off a few skins while Isabel beat the hell out of Kivar."
"Is he," I managed to squeak out before a jolt of pain hit my body as Michael helped me to my feet.
"I think so," Michael said.
"What about the skins," I ask, slumping over slightly.
"Kyle and I took care of them. There weren't many." Then, Michael looked around. "Where is Liz?"
I stood up. "She ran off after Tess and Alexia. We have to get to her."
Michael nodded his head. I took off as fast as I could in the direction I last saw Liz go. Michael and I reached the Granolith. We heard shouting from around the other side, and then a shot rang out. We had got there too late.
Liz was slumped over on the ground. Alexia was pleading to Tess to let her go, so she could go to her mommy. And Tess… she was laughing. "You need to forget about her, girl," she scolded Alexia. "You should have been my child anyway. Maybe if you are good, I'll let you live."
Alexia flinched when Tess waved pistol Kyle had given Liz in front of her face. I felt Michael gripping my shoulder, trying to keep me from acting irrationally, from rushing out to kill Tess. "Hold on Maxwell," he whispered. "You can't risk hurting Alexia."
"But I can heal Liz…," I began to say, still trying to get out of Michael's grasp. However, we both stop moving when we see Liz open her eyes. "She's alive," I whisper to Michael.
I inch closer to her, but I notice that she is not focused on anything but the Granolith. Slowly, she pulls herself toward it. As she does, I get a look at her wound. Ironically, it is in the same spot as the gunshot wound that would have killed her eight years ago in the Crashdown. But that is not what I am thinking about. I'm thinking that if I don't get to her soon, it will be too late. Without even considering what I am doing, I pull away from Michael and rush towards her.
Tess sees me coming and raises the gun. It doesn't even register in my brain that she is going to fire it at me. Instead, I just keep running towards Liz. Liz looked over at me, then to Tess, and back at me again. "No," she cried out.
The next few moments happened so fast that no one would've had a chance to process them. Startled by Liz's scream, Tess dropped the gun and jumped back from Liz, letting Alexia go in the process. Liz lunged forward, reaching for the Granolith. As soon as her fingers touched the smooth, glowing surface, the room filled up with an eerie purple light. Liz turned to Tess and raised her hand towards her. A concentration of energy flowed from the Granolith through Liz, using her like she was a conductor, and to Tess. Tess let out a high pitch scream and fell to the ground.
She was dead. The power from the Granolith had killed her. I saw the light in the room die away and Liz began to fall. I hurried the few steps between us and caught her before she hit the floor. She smiled weakly at me, whispering, "I love you."
I put my hand over the wound in her side, but it was too late. I couldn't heal her. Alexia took Liz's hand, kneeling down next to me, crying. "I'm so sorry," I told them both. It was all my fault.
As though sensing my thoughts, Liz slowly shook her head. "No it's not," she said softly. Her eyes then looked to Alexia. "I love you baby," she mouthed as her voice failed her.
The tears ran from my eyes, dropping onto her forehead. "I love you, Liz."
With that, a clock somewhere began chiming. It was midnight. Liz drew in some air and exhaled slowly, closing her eyes at the same time. She didn't take another breath.
"Mommy," I heard Alexia whimper next to me. I wrapped my arms around her, pulling my little girl close to me. Alexia squirmed, wiggling herself away from me. I dropped my arms and watched her cling to Liz's lifeless body.
"Alexia, baby, it's too late," I told her, attempting to pull her away.
Alexia ignored me, placing her tiny hand over the wound. My eyes grew wide as they began to glow. Letting out a little gasp, Alexia slumped over Liz's body. The next thing I heard was Liz taking a deep breath.

I was looking over the story, trying to find the best way to end it and two more parts just didn't fit. So this is the last part. The End.

Part Thirty-four… Liz’s POV

Breathing, something so important that it’s funny just how quickly you can forget to do it. I had forgotten to breath when Tess shot the gun, as the bullet entered my side, even when I reached for the Granolith. The only thing I wanted to do was save Alexia. It’s even more ironic that she saved me instead.
The first thing I remember seeing when I woke up was Alexia out cold on my bed. Considering everything that had happened, my first reaction to her stillness was to panic. Max, who was cradling her in his arms, did his best to reassure me she was okay. "She fell asleep after she healed you. It took a lot out of her."
I curled up alongside Max. "We won," I asked, my mind racing with questions. Is everyone okay?"
Max leaned over and placed a tender kiss on my forehead, using his free arm to pull me closer to him. "Everyone is fine. Tired, but fine."
I let out a sigh of relief. Reaching out, I tangled my fingers in Alexia’s hair, rejoicing that I was able to touch her again, that she was safe. It turned into one of those instants, the kind that stay with you forever. I was here, holding my family, peacefully.
After a few minutes passed, Max broke the comfortable silence. "How did you know to connect with the Granolith, tap into it’s power?"
I looked down, thinking back on what happened. "Something that Alex told me. He said I was more important than I thought. I had a role to play. And when I was lying there, things sort of became clear. The Granolith was connected to Alexia, and she was connected to me. Somehow I just knew I could use it to get Tess away from her."
It was only then that I looked up and saw the tears in Max’s eyes. "I almost lost you, both of you."
I moved, sitting up more in bed. My other hand reached out to caress his cheek. "You will never lose me Max, not now." Then, I leaned over and kissed him.

That was five years ago, to the day. Max didn’t wait too long to ask me to marry him. Of course, I didn’t wait long to take him up on his offer. We walked down the alter about three months after Alexia’s birthday.
We weren’t the only ones. Sixth months after she confronted Kivar and killed him, Isabel finally got married… to Kyle. A year later, they had twins, James Jr. and Jerica.
What made those months so interesting was the fact that half way through Isabel’s pregnancy, Maria found out she was pregnant again. Five months after James and Jerica were born, Maria had a little girl named Catrina.
I also found out Max and I were going to have another baby right after we were married. We had another little girl, who we decided to name Taryn. Alexia was so excited to have a baby sister. Even though there is a six year difference in their ages, they are practically inseparable.
Like right now. September 27, 2011 was a perfect day, warm and crisp. Alexia wanted to spend her tenth birthday having a picnic at the park, so that’s what we are doing. As I look around, I see her pushing Taryn on the swings, undoubtedly using her powers.
Turning, I see that Max has noticed that too. "Alexia," he called out in a scolding tone. "Not here baby."
Her cute little smile faded, then re-appeared a second later when Taryn took her hand. They thought it was a secret they shared, but Max and I knew that the could communicate telepathically when they were touching. In fact, all the sets of siblings could do it. The downside was that none of the parents could pick up on what was being said.
"I think they’re plotting something," I whispered into Max’s ear as he sat back down.
Max gave me a wicked grin. "They’re our children. Of course they’re plotting something."
I started to laugh. Next thing I knew, our two girls pounced on us, tickling like crazy. Fits of giggling filled the air as Max grabbed Taryn and swung her over his head. I continued to laugh, mostly because Alexia had found the ticklish spot under my arm. Life was good, and no matter what happened, it would remain so as long as we have each other.
Now, looking back on everything that had occurred, I realize that Max and Isabel leaving was one of the turning points in all our lives. We had to lose our way before we could find it again. For those five years, we were all lost. Our family was incomplete. However, that’s changed. The family is growing, by leaps and bounds for that matter.
Watching my little segment of the group in this moment cause me to realize I had to lose Max for him to come back to me. True love is stronger than even the Granolith could possible predict. Which is why there are no true endings, only beginnings to a variety of life’s adventures. And that is our story. Well, so far.
