Summery: Okay, I don't really know what exactly will happen.... But there are NO ALIENS in this one. Liz and Maria are 8, Michael and Max 9 and Alex (who is Liz brother) and Isabel are 16.
Author's Note: Okay, I'm learning English. So maybe there'll be some mistakes.....
I want you to write Feedback! Let me know if you like it!
Oh, by the way, I'm not really a stargazer, so maybe I won't do any good at that.

Part one

Liz POV
I so do not want to be here! How could Alex come up with such an idea?!

Okay, maybe I should start at the beginning:
I wanted to spend the afternoon at Maria's but she has to visit her grandparents (poor girl, they are awful!!). So no Maria today.

My parents both have to work like every Saturday and they don't want me to stay alone in the apartment. But hey, I am 8!! I'm not a baby anymore!! So Alex has to look after me. He doesn't like it. Sometimes I think he just doesn't like me.....

Anyway, that's the reason I'm here. We are spending the afternoon at the Evan's 'cause he wants to be with his girlfriend Isabel. They are head over heels in love since last week. Well, he liked her since forever....

Anyway he wants me to play with her little brother because they want to be "alone". I so do not want to play with Max Evans!! I mean, I don't even know him. I only know his name because Maria has a crush on his strange friend. I'm always teasing her about it. Hey, don't look at me like that! I bet you would do it too. I mean he is a boy and boys are disgusting!!!


Max POV

"But Isabel, I don't want to play with a girl!!"
"Please Max! Alex has to look after his sister and..."
"NO!"
"I'll give you 5 bucks."
Okay, 5 bucks is a lot of money, isn't it? And I want to buy a new bike...
"Fine, but I want it now!!"
"Oh I love you so much!"
I believe her! Does she have to kiss me?! That's so disgusting!!

I hope this Liz is at least a little bit nice. Well, I know who she is 'cause Michael has this huge crush on her friend Maria. Can you believe this? Michael likes a girl!
Disgusting!

Part two

Max POV

So she isn't that bad. Hell, she's the only girl I know who can actually play Nintendo!
"Haha, I beat you again!"
Okay, maybe she is even better than I. How is that possible? She is a girl! That's just...unfair! Okay I know I'm not a very good loser.
She's biting on her bottom lip right now. She looks cute..... Stop Stop Stop Stop!!! It's me, Max Evans! I don't think girls are cute. They are strange, stupid and disgusting but definitely NOT CUTE!

Now I'm confused. Maybe I just need to cool down a little bit. Well a glass of Cherry Coke should help.
"Want something to drink?"
"Sure"
So I take her to the kitchen. She smells good, like strawberry? Stop!!! I will need a huge glass of Cherry Coke.
Great, Mum is in the kitchen. I bet she'll do something to embarrass me. She always does. The first time I brought Michael home she showed him the picture she took at Granny's farm after I fell from a horse. I was covered with mud. Michael laughed for an hour! He is a great friend, isn't he?

"Oh! Look at you! You two look so cute together!"
NO! There's this word again! Why Mum? Whywhywhywhy???
I glance towards Liz. She blushes and looks down at the ground. Great Mum, just great!
"Hello Mrs. Evans."
"Mum, can we have something to drink?"
"Sure Sweetie!"

Sweetie?! Please God, if you are somewhere out there, do something! Now!
"Max, I am just going to the store, okay? I'll be back soon. It was nice to meet you Liz."
Wow, that was quick! Thanx!

Liz POV

Great, she's gone! Oh God, she actually said we were cute together! That's disgusting!

Hey Max my man, what's up? You haven't talked for about 10 minutes. You'll stare a hole in that wall. Come on, I'm boooored!
"Max...Max?... MAX!"
"Hu?"
Yeah, he snapped out of it! Good job Parker!
"I'm bored"
"What do you want to do?"
"Dunno.....where are Alex and Isabel?"
He points at the door of her room. I jump down of my seat and sneak towards the door. No, I would never spy on my brother, I just want to know what they are doing. Really! Alex wouldn't mind.
I stop in front of the door, Max, who followed me, right behind me. We open the door just a little bit. Okay, so I open the door just a little bit.
"Ew!" I wish I had never opened that damn door! They are lying on her bed, KISSING!
"Disgusting" Max whispers in my ear. Hell, when did he get so close?
"Yeah, that's disgusting!" I don't even bother to speak in a low voice. Alex is so shocked that he just falls of the bed. Max and I start to laugh.
"What are you doing here?" Oh, oh, he is really pissed!
"Uh...uh..we, we wanted to know if you'd like some Cherry Coke?" Well Max, that was an extremely lame excuse. He knows it too, I can see it.
"Out here Maxwell!" Wow, and I thought Alex was pissed. Max ducks his head and whispers:" Let's get out! She throws things when she's angry."
I quickly close the door.
"I'll never do something like THAT!"
"Me neither! Never ever will I do that!!"

Thanks for the Feedback!

Part 3

Liz POV

"Where were you yesterday? I called you and your parents told me you were in the park with Alex, AGAIN!"
I look up at my best friend and smile innocently. "What are you talking about?"
"What I am talking about? What I am talking about? I can't even remember when we last spent an afternoon together!"
Okay, she's right. It's been ages, but what shall I tell her? What would she do if I told her that I spent the afternoons with Max Evans? Wait, I mean that I was forced to spend all the afternoons with Max Evans.

What? You don't know what I'm talking about? Okay, you need to be filled in. It's been a month since Alex took me with him to meet Isabel. Yeah, right that day I found them making out in her room. (I'm still having nightmares about it!)
Anyway, about a week later my parents decided that Alex was seeing Isabel way to often. He was so pissed! They wanted him to meet her once, maybe twice a week because of school, work ...

Well, he was pissed and had a fight with my parents. I can't see the problem at all! He sees her EVERY SINGLE DAY at school. But he thinks that this isn't enough. And now he takes me everyday to the park or to the cinema or I-don't-know-where. There we meet Isabel and Max and then the two "lovebirds" (great name isn't it? It was actually Max's idea) take of to spent some "quality time" together. (I don't know what that means, but believe me, I won't spy on them again!)

Max and I usually buy ice-cream at the store and then go somewhere, where nobody can see us. I mean, what if someone catches me hanging around with Max Evans?? I hate Alex for making me do this! But he said if I don't "go with him to the park" he would tell Mummy that I broke her favourite china-doll! Son of a b**ch!

But you see, I can't tell Maria about this. She wouldn't believe me. She would say that I'm in love with Max. But I don't even like him! Well, maybe I like him a little bit. But really just a little bit!!!


Max POV

Where is she? I haven't seen her all day. Ah, over there! She's talking to Maria.
Hey, what?! No, I don't like her! Of course not! She's a girl!

"Max, what are you looking at?"
"Hu?"
"I asked what you were looking at! What's so interesting?"
No Michael don't turn around, please! Oh great, he will say that I like her! I don't like her! I don't don't don't like her! Even if she smells like strawberry....

Michael turns around again. Please don't say anything about Liz!!! He looks at me with anger in his eyes. Wait, why is he angry at me?
"You were looking at Maria!"
What? Why should I be looking at Maria?!
"No, I wasn't!"
"Oh come on Max! You were looking over there."
Yeah, I was looking at Liz, but I won't tell you that Michael.
"No, I wasn't!"
"I thought you were my friend Maxwell!"
Great, now he's pissed! Because he thinks I like Maria. Me and Maria? Disgusting!

Wow, thanks for the feedback!! You really like my story? or are you just being nice?
Anyway, Part4:

Part 4

Isabel POV

"What's wrong Max?"
There's a problem, I can see it. Something's wrong with him. He has been moping around all day.
"Michael and I had a fight."
They never fight. It has to be a big problem.
"What about?"
I'm his sister, right? I'll fix it! There's nothing I wouldn't do for my little brother!
Max sights. "He thinks I like Maria. I don't like Maria! Why should I like Maria? She's so disgusting.... plus she doesn't smell like strawberries! Hell, she's a girl! I don't like any kind of girls!"
Wait, Maria? Maria who? I've never met a Maria. Why should Michael be angry with him because of a girl he likes (or doesn't like)? And what was that about strawberries?!
"Slow down Max, you aren't making any sense! So Michael and you had a fight because he thinks you like Maria, right?"
"Right."
"Why?" Suddenly it hits me. "Wait, Michael likes this Maria, right?"
"Right, well, sort of."
That's cute! Michael is jealous! That's so cute!
"Talk to him. Tell him that you don't like her because she doesn't smell like strawberries."
I still don't know what's up with these strawberries.....yet. I'm his sister. Sooner or later he'll tell me about the strawberry-thing.
He looks at me. "You think he'll buy it?"
"Of course! Talk to him! I bet he is as miserable as you are right now."
"Thanks Izzy!"
I give him an encouraging smile and walk to the door.
"Isabel?"
I turn around again. "Yeah?"
"What do you know about strawberries?"
He seems to be uncomfortable. Very uncomfortable! Interesting...
"Nothing. Would you like to tell me something about strawberries?"
He sighs in relief. "No, I don't know anything about fruits. Thanks again Izzy!"
Interesting....


Liz POV

"Play with me?"
Oops, I forgot to knock at the door.
"First: I told you to knock at the door, didn't I? And second: No, I have to do my homework."
"Please Alex? I'm bored."
Please? I make my puppy dog face.
"I told you NO!"
I don't know why he doesn't like me. I'm always extra nice to him! Hell, I even spend the afternoons with Max Evans!! Well, I admit, we had fun yesterday. He taught me how to play basketball. Suddenly Pam Troy came and we had to hide behind a bush. She nearly saw us! TOGETHER! I'm glad she didn't. She's the "Gossip-Queen" at school....
"Don't you have something to do?"
Hell Alex! You startled me!
"Actually no. That's why I came here to see you."
He sighs. "Go call Maria! Or "help" Mum and Dad downstairs at the Crashdown."
Now I'm hurt! Well, not really. He always says something like that.

Hey! Okay, I just want to tell you how sorry I am about all the mistakes I made/will make. I bet there are some. Anyway, I'm sorry.
Okay who thinks that Max is falling in love? Max isn't falling in love!! girls are disgusting*wink*

Part 5

Michael POV

Max came by yesterday. He said he didn't like Maria. But I'm SURE he was looking at her. Well, as you can see, I'm confused.
Hell, who wouldn't be? Something is up with Max. I can't put my finger on it but I know something is different.
I bet it has something to do with Mrs. Saunders. She's our new English teacher. Maybe he has a crush on her?! I don't know. Max isn't one to like older woman.....or is he?
Well, I have to think about it.
Maybe it's because of Billy. Billy used to beat him up when we were younger. But if Billy is beating him up again he would tell me. I'm sure he would.
So, what else could it be? Maybe he's ill?! I mean really ill, like never-will-get-better ill.... No, Mrs. Evans would have talked to my Mum about it. And he's still playing basketball.
So he's fine.
So, what's up Max?.....Oh my god! He was replaced by an alien. How could I be so blind? I have to go to the sheriff, no, the FBI! Oh my god!!!......What? Why are you looking at me like that? Okay, so maybe he isn't an alien. Hey, I'm living in Roswell! He could be an alien! Well, okay, you are right. That's nonsense! Max isn't an alien, but maybe he's in love with.....
"Ouch!" I collide with someone who's also walking down the street. I look at her. It's this girl, Liz, who's Maria's best friend.
"I'm sorry." She smiles shyly and runs away.
Okay, what were we talking about? Oh yeah, maybe Max's in love with Mrs. Saunders. Well, at least it's a possibility!


Max POV

I hate homework! And I hate Mrs. Saunders. She's so cruel! She's a witch, she's....
"Hey, sweetie! I'm going to the store. Do you need something?"
Yeah, someone to write this damn essay!
"No Mum, thanks."
She smiles and starts to leave when Isabel shows up.
"Hi Mum! Where are you going to?"
"The store. Do you need something?"
"Maybe some strawberries. I bet Max would like some."
I drop my pencil and look at her, shocked.
She smiles innocently. Isabel, what are you up to?
I'll never tell her anything again!!! I'll make her life a living hell!!!
...After I wrote this damn essay for stupid Mrs. Saunders.

Hey, it's me. Thanks for the feedback. I hope you like this part too.

Part 6


Isabel POV

I'm a girl on a mission! I'll find someone who smells like strawberries, even if that means that I have to go around and ask people if they are using a strawberry-shampoo!
Okay, maybe I should leave Max alone. It's just...
"Isabel? What's up? You've barely said five words tonight."
Alex seems to be concerned. Cute!
"Don't worry, I'm alright."
"What are you thinking about?"
He's the first boy who really cares about me. Being his girlfriend is definitely the best thing that ever happened to me.
"Max, I'm thinking about Max."
He looks surprised. "Is something wrong with him?"
"No, he it's just....he has this obsession...."
He laughs. "What is he obsessed by?"
What shall I say? By strawberries? Or by someone who smells like strawberries?
"Stra...." No, I can't tell Alex about the strawberry-thing. Max will hate me forever! "Well, I don't really know yet. But I will, believe me, I will."
He laughs. Okay, so maybe I'm a little bit crazy.
For now I'll quit thinking about my little brother and enjoy my boyfriend's company!


Liz POV

It's late. Well, it isn't THAT late.
I'm bored, again! Alex is out with Isabel, Dad is still working and Mum is watching TV. I had to go to bed an hour ago but I can't fall asleep. I'm not tired! Not even a little bit! I don't know why I have to go to bed so early. I'm not a baby! I'm eight years old!
Okay, so you want to hear the truth about why I'm not asleep yet? Well, I don't like the darkness. NO!! I'm not afraid!! Of course not! I'm a big girl!
But what if there's a ghost? Or a monster? Nobody will hear me!!
I'll turn the light on. No, I'm not afraid, I just don't want to be killed.
Okay, I turned the light on without being caught by a monster. Now I'm bored again. What shall I do?
Oh, I know! I'll call Maria. I take the phone and start to dial the number. But Maria has to go to bed early too. Even earlier than I.
So, who could I call instead? I don't really have a lot of friends you know. Well, of course I have some friend but they are probably asleep right now.
I could call Max..... He's nearly 10. I bet he's awake.
I slowly dial his number but before anyone answered the phone I chickened out and put the phone down again. I'm a loser!!
Well, maybe I should go to sleep. Goodnight Max!

Hi to everyone who posted feedback! Thank you! I love you guys! *wink*
Anyway:


Part 7

Liz POV

It's so unfair! I'm bored (as usual) and Alex doesn't want to play with me because he prefers spending time with Isabel. And do you know the worst thing? She didn't even bring Max. Why didn't she? That's so unfair!
Wait a minute, I don't like Max. I don't want to play with him! What's wrong with me?
It's all Alex' fault! He forced me to spend time with Max and know I think I like him. That's disgusting!
But Isabel is great. She's really nice. I hope they'll marry someday. Then she would be my sister-in-law! And maybe I'll get a niece...or a nephew.
I could dance at their wedding....with Max. That would be great. Nonononono! I don't WANT TO dance at their wedding with Max. Why am I thinking something like that???
"Hi Liz!"
"Oh, hey Isabel."
"How are you?"
"Why didn't you bring Max?"
I blush. Why the hell did I ask THAT?! Great, now she thinks I like him! She'll tell him and he'll laugh at me!! What shall I do? What shall I do? I could run away and hide. Why did I ask her?


Isabel POV

I like her a lot. She's a great little girl. Maybe she knows something about Max' strawberry-girl? The two of them got pretty close during the last two months. Well okay, that's mainly because of Alex and I. I'm feeling bad about forcing them to help us.
"Next time, I promise!"
She smiles. "Can I ask you something?"
"Spill!" What do you want to know?
"You and Alex, you are pretty close, aren't you?"
I blush. What shall I answer?
"Hm, yeah, I guess..."
She breaths in deeply. "Will you marry him?"
"WHAT?! WHY?" I'm shocked. Marry him? Hell, I'm sixteen! Where did she get that idea from?
She shifts uncomfortably. "Never mind. It was just...an idea. A stupid idea. I'm sorry."
She blushes and looks down. "I didn't mean to upset you."
"No Liz, it's okay. It's just.... I wasn't prepared for something like that. I'm not angry." I give her an encouraging smile.
She sighs in relieve. I laugh. "Anything else you want to know?"
She thinks for a moment. "Yes, well......" Suddenly she changes her mind. "No."
"Oh come on Liz! Spill!"
She seems to be uncertain. "It's silly.."
No Liz, you aren't getting away that easy. I look at her.
"Well, wh...what is, is it like, you know, ....to kiss a boy?"
A smile spreads across my face. That's adorable. So cute!!!

Part 8


Liz POV

Do you want to know her answer? The answer to my question, you know? She said I should just try it. Eww!! She wants me to kiss a boy! Can you believe this? Disgusting!
I bet you wonder why I asked her something like that. Well, I was just curious. Really! I don't want to kiss Max Evans.
Wait a minute, Max? Why the hell should you think I want to kiss Max? Nobody would think something as stupid, right? ......Okay, so, if I had to kiss a boy (you know, if someone forced me to) I would prefer kissing him than...I don't know...stupid Kyle Valenti. You know Kyle? He kissed nearly every girl at school. He even tried to kiss me! Ewwwwwwwwwwww!!!!!! He thinks it's "cool" to kiss. That's so disgusting!
So, if I had to kiss a boy, then yes, I would kiss Max. Bur really really really just if I had to. Well okay, I'm still wondering what it's like to kiss a boy. Maybe Isabel is right? Maybe I should just try it? I....
"Hey!"
Hell Max! You startled me!
"Something wrong? What are you thinking about?"
I blush. Great!
"I...I... nothing..."
He looks at me with this I-don't-believe-you look but he stays silent. Thank you Max; I appreciate it, really!!
Something is wrong with him too. He shifts uncomfortably and looks around nervously. What's wrong Max?


Max POV

I have to be careful. I don't want Isabel to find out who my strawberry-girl is. STOP!
MY strawberry-girl? Oh Max, what are you thinking? Anyway....
Isabel really wants to know who it is, but I really don't want her to know. She would make my life a hell...or worse, she would tell Liz!! Liz would never talk to me again! Please Isabel, just leave me alone! Please, please, please!
I shouldn't have come over here to talk to Liz. But she looked so lost sitting on the swing....she looked sad. I don't want her to be sad. I want her to be happy,..... 'cause she looks beautiful when she smiles.....
I look at her from the corner of my eyes. "We shouldn't be here..." What is she talking about? Does she want me to leave? I look at her confused. She blushes. "You know, someone could see us..." Her voice is barely audible. Okay Liz, I got it. You want me to leave, fine. I stand up. "Well, okay,...then, then I'll leave you alone, I..." Hell, when did my voice get so husky? I turn around and start to go away. "Wait!" She stops me. "Please don't leave! We could eat something at the Crashdown.....in the backroom?" A smile spreads across my face. I shove my hands into my pockets and try to act casual.
"Okay"

Okay, that was a lie! I wrote this part because I was bored and not because I was feeling guilty. But hey, I updated twice today!!!*big*
Anyway:


Part 9


Alex POV

I'm happy. For the first time in my life I'm really happy.
I just had a date with Isabel. Yes, I'm dating beautiful, intelligent, wonderful Isabel Evans. I bet I'm the luckiest guy in the world.
I try to make as little noises as possible 'cause I don't want to wake my little sister. It's late.
But I see light coming from her room. Hell, why is she still up? She should be asleep since 9 p.m. Mum will be angry with her.
So I open the door to her room. She's sitting at her desk, drawing a picture.
"You should be asleep right now, you know?"
She jumps up. I didn't mean to startle her.
She looks guilty. She knows that Mum will be angry.
"You won't tell Mum and Dad, will you?" She's really worried about it.
I sigh.
"Go to bed now!"
She slowly crawls under the covers. I turn around to turn off the light.
"NO! Please Alex, please, don't."
Oh my God! She's afraid of the darkness! I have to laugh. She's 8 years old!
"You really are a little girl Liz!" I have to laugh harder. "Afraid of the monsters? Poor little baby! They'll catch you tonight!"
I thought she would be mad by now but she's just sitting there with this horrified look. I shake my head, leave the room and turn off the light.


Liz POV

Sniff... he's always so mean! ....Sniff....I didn't do anything, really. I don't know why he doesn't like me.
I have to cry harder. I don't like the darkness...sniff... Call me a baby, but I really don't like the darkness.
But I won't turn the light on again...sniff... Alex will laugh at me...sniff...and he will tell Mum! I hate him! Why is he so mean?.. sniff..
I'm sobbing. I don't want to cry. I bet Max would laugh at me if he sees me like that... sniff...
My heart is beating really fast. I'm so afraid. I'm horrified.
I used to like the darkness when I was younger. I don't know what happened but now I'm afraid when it's dark. And it's getting worse. Hell, I don't know what's wrong with me. I mean, I KNOW that there aren't any monsters, it's just..... Maybe I'm not normal....sniff....
It's silent. Well, my sobbing not included.
I hate you Alex, I really, really do!!...sniff.. Hell, you are my big brother! You are supposed to play with me. You are supposed to save me from the monsters. You are supposed to be there for me......and to love me.....
I just want you to like me. At least a little bit!...sniff...Am I that horrible?
Do you know this feeling? Deep in your stomach? This feeling that hurts a little bit? That's how I feel right now. I think the feeling is called loneliness.
I cry until I'm too exhausted to.
I cry until I fall asleep.

Whooooooo!! Guess what! Part 10!!! 10 parts, wow! *tongue*
Thanks for the feedback! I hope I'll have more than 100 replies soon. It would make me sooooooooooo proud!
Anyway:


Part 10


Max POV

We don't even say "hi" when we meet at school. It's like we don't know each other when we aren't alone.
She's talking to Maria right know and I'm eavesdropping. I know, I know, I shouldn't do it. But hey, it's not my fault that she's sitting at the table next to me. Okay, so maybe it is 'cause she was sitting there before I sat down here.....
But they could lower their voices, right? Yeah, it's all their fault. I don't want to eavesdrop!!!
You didn't buy that, right? *Sigh * Okay, so maybe it was a lie. A horrible lie. BUT DAMN! You should have bought it!!
"He was so mean Maria."
"Huu?"
Maria!! Why aren't you listening to her? She said that he was so mean.....Wait, who's mean? Nobody is supposed to be mean to her. Whoever was mean to her better watch out!! I'll beat the hell out of him. I'll....
"I was talking about Alex, Maria! I said that he was really mean yesterday."
Shit! Alex? He is sixteen, six years older than I am. I can't beat him up........
She looks so sad. Why did he make her sad?
I'm pissed. And defeated. I can't do anything. He can be mean to her and I can't stop him. He gets away with it. That's so unfair!!! How am I supposed to protect her when I can't do anything?
"He's a jerk chica!"
She hugs Liz.
"Thanks Maria!" A small smile crosses her face. Great Maria! I owe you!
But Alex can't get away that easy. He could hurt her again. *Sigh * I have to do something about that.....
I could stay with her 24/7. I smile. That doesn't sound that bad.....but my parents wouldn't allow me spending the nights at the Parker's. And she properly doesn't want me around....and there would be a problem if she decided to take a shower..... I blush. I haven't thought that! You didn't hear anything, did you? ( Author's note: Max! I'm shocked!! Hell, you are ten! You can't even blame your hormones!*big*)
I'm still as red as a tomato. Anyway,....where were we?
Oh yes, Alex. There must be something I can do.....
A smile spreads across my face. I've got an idea!


Isabel POV

I'm putting make up on. I have another date with Alex tonight. Alex.....I smile
Suddenly the door to my room opens.
"Isabel?"
"Max, I don't really have time...."
"But it's important!"
I look up.
"Strawberry related?" He blushes and I smile.
"No." He says quickly. A little too quickly.....
"Spill!"
"Well,....it's ...it's TOP SECRET."
I laugh. "Spill agent Strawberry!" I can't help it. I have to tease him a little bit. He could tell me about the girl and I would leave him alone, really!
"It's about Alex. Could you talk to him?"
I don't get it. What about my boyfriend?" I look at him confused.
"Could...could you tell him.....nottobemeantoLiz?"
"He's mean to Liz?" He nods.
That's cute, my little brother in protective mood. I always thought he would make a great big brother. I'm just wondering what Liz repays him? Maybe she help him with the strawberry-thing? I have to talk to her. Maybe she'll tell me who the girl is.....
"I promise I will talk to him."
He smiles and hugs me. "Thanks Is!"
The problem is just: how should I tell him? It won't do any good to say something like "My brother said you are mean to your sister..."
I have to think about it....

Now it's done!

It's me again! And yes, another part! I'm so proud!!*big*
Anyway:


Part 11


Alex POV

Isabel acted wired tonight. She talked the whole evening about Max and their "good times" together. She told me that big brothers and sisters are supposed to be there for their siblings. She said something like "always look after your little sister". Maybe something's wrong with Liz? What a strange evening....
There is still light coming from her room. Hell, didn't I tell her yesterday that she's supposed to be asleep by now?
I open the door and see her sitting at her desk like yesterday. She looks kind of cute wearing one of Dad's huge T-shirts.
"Hi little one! What are you doing?"
She jumps up, like yesterday. "N....Nothing.. I'll go to bed....I'm sorry..."
I chuckle. But then I realise that she's really afraid.
"Hey, don't worry. I won't tell Mum." I thought she would be relieved but she's still so tense.
"What's that?" I look at the picture she was drawing.
"A blackbird.......Max likes blackbirds, you know?"
It's a beautiful picture. She loves drawing and is very good at it.
"Max hmm? So it's something like a present?"
She shakes her head. "No. I don't give presents to boys. It's just....a picture."
I smile at her. "Not even to your big brother?"
She shrugs. "You can have the picture." She still has this look on her face. She seems to be very uncomfortable.
"Thanks!" I take the picture and smile. "It's late. You should go to bed." She quickly lies down. I turn around to turn the light off. "Good night..." I remember something Isabel said tonight. "You have to make sure that they know that you don't look down on them." I sigh.
"I love you Liz."
She sits up again. "You do?"
I'm shocked. She seems to be really surprised.
"Of.....of course I do. You didn't know that?"
She slowly shakes her head. Her voice is barley audible "No, I thought you didn't care about me.". WHAT?? What are you talking about Liz? Of course I do! I really, really do! Why the hell......


Max POV

"Isabel?"
"Hell Max! You startled me! Why aren't you asleep?"
I close the door behind me and sit down on her bed. "Did you talk to Alex?"
I try to say it as casual as possible. I really hope she did. I don't want him to hurt Liz again.
Isabel sighs. "Yes, somehow..... I hope he got the message."
I look at her, worry written all over my face. Great, so much about acting casual.
"You hope he got the message?"
She gives me an encouraging smile. " I think he got it. And I don't think he treated her that bad before. What did he do to make you so angry?"
Well, I don't really know what he did. All I know is that he hurt Liz and that's enough to make him one of the worst persons in the world.
"None of your business....Goodnight Isabel and thank you.."
I open the door to leave the room.
"Max?"
I turn around again.
"Don't worry too much. He isn't that bad."
I nod and close the door behind me.
Okay, I'll give him another chance for Isabel's sake. But if he ever hurts Liz again.......

Did you see it!!*bounce* I have more that 100 replies!!!
I love you! I really do!
I just want to tell you something before you read this part: It's not like Liz "strawberry-smell" is THAT strong. You can just smell it when you are really close....e.g. when you hug her...or kiss her...or play Nintendo while lying together on a bed (that was how Max smelled it....)
Anything else?... oh yes, I couldn't re-read this part (lack of time) so there are probably LOTS of mistakes.....
Anyway:


Part 12


Isabel POV

I'm pissed. No, pissed isn't the right word. I'm upset....no, that doesn't sound right.
Confused? Hurt? Angry?....Well, I don't really know.
Wanna know what this all is about? Well, it's about Alex. I'm angry with him. And not only with him I'm angry with Max too...and I'm angry with myself. Hell, I'm even angry with Liz.
It's been three weeks since my last date with Alex. You remember it, right? Well, I don't know what happened between him and Liz afterwards but I'm sure my "mission" was a big success. Alex is so busy spending time with Liz that he can't go out with me! Can you believe that??
But the worst thing is that I know that it's my own fault. I should have never talked to him about the whole thing......but wait a moment! It was actually Max's idea. So it's his fault....I sigh. I've been through that numerous times. Hell, I even yelled at Max this morning. I'm so frustrated!
Poor Max......of course it isn't his fault. Nor is it Liz's. But damn, I WANT MY BOYFRIEND BACK!!!
"Hey beautiful!"
Hell Alex! You startled me! You have a special talent to startle people.....
I put my books into my locker.
"Hi!" I give him a quick kiss before I ask "Want to hang out today?"
He looks down. "Well, Liz and I wanted to....." Ouch! I can't believe it! I'm jealous because of his sister! How pathetic is that? I feel like crying.
Suddenly he smiles. "You could come with us! Please Izzy! It will be fun!"
"Humm, what are you doing?"
"Picnic. We want to make a picnic in the dessert."
Well, why not?
"Okay....."
"Great! You can bring Max if you want. I'll pick you up around three."
Bring Max...hmm... No, I have a better idea. That's my chance to talk to Liz about the strawberry girl! Well, that should be an interesting afternoon....



Max POV

Isabel yelled at me this morning. She NEVER yells at me. She's really unhappy about the whole Alex situation. I'm really sorry. It's all my fault.
But hell! I'm also upset about it! I don't get to spend time with Liz. It's so unfair!!! I just wanted her to be happy. Now she is happy....but I'm not.
I'm ready to beat someone up! That's sooooooo frustrating!
Well, at least I can see her at school. Even if she acts like she doesn't know me... Life's a b**ch.!
Shall I tell you something? I wouldn't even mind if someone saw us together, really. Hell, I wouldn't even mind if people think I like her..........but she does mind.......
Shall I tell you something? I even went to the store and smelled a strawberry-flavoured shampoo!! I nearly bought it! Can you believe that?? I definitely need a distraction.
Oh, who am I kidding? There's no way that ANYTHING could distract me.

Stop stop stop!!!
I'm sorry but that wasn't a spoiler! (But I'm not telling you that 'cause that would be a spoiler too*big*)
Anyway, I just wrote it because of something ps dreamer wrote (I think you can find it at page 10)

Have a nice evening!

Hi!
I'm sorry, I couldn't post earlier 'cause my Mum thinks her work is more important than my FanFiction! Nonsens!!!*wink*
I'm not really content with this part but I couldn't do it better.....
Anyway:


Part 13


Liz POV

It's too much! Okay, I know that I wanted Alex to be a "better" brother but that's just too much.
It was great at first. We were having lots of fun. Well, we still have fun..... I love spending time with him, you know? But I don't want to spend EVERY afternoon with him.
Maria is pissed 'cause I don't have time for her because of him again. (Okay, so the first time it wasn't because Alex and I were together, but I can't tell Maria. She would.... okay, I already told you that.)
Alex feels guilty and that's the reason he's trying to be the bestest brother in the world. It's quiet nice. Hell, it's great! He even bought me some presents! Just because he felt like it!
But it's too much. Well, I know I just said it's great, but it's also too much. Do you know what I mean?
Damn, I want to play with Max!....What?! What's up with this goofy grin of yours? Oh, did I just say Max? I meant Maria! I really did!! Hey, stop laughing!!! I really meant Maria!
Great, know I'm blushing. You are #⊕+%#!!!!
"Liz, are you ready? It's time to go."
"Yeah Alex, I'm coming!"
I jump into the car and Alex drives off.
"Where are we going to? I thought we'd go that way?"
"Isabel and Max are coming with us. You don't mind, do you?"
A huge smile spreads across my face. Of course not! That will be great!...Oh shit! I should have changed! I look like a baby with this pink teddy T-shirt.
Great, that's so embarrassing!


Isabel POV

I give Alex a small kiss and sit down next to him.
"Where's Max?"
"Oh, he already had plans." Okay, that was a lie. To tell you the truth he really wanted to come. Now he's pissed..... But that's my chance to ask Liz about the strawberry girl. I think she knows something. Well, at least I thought she did. I'm not so sure anymore......
Hell, you are crazy Isabel! That's none of your business! I would be mad if my sister was that obsessed by my crush......So maybe I shouldn't ask her if she knows who Max has a crush on?..... But I just want to help him!! Really!!
Truth to be told I'm afraid that I'm replaced. As crazy as it sounds, I'm afraid that I'm replaced by Liz. Do you know what I mean? I don't want Max to ask her about his problems with girls. I want to be the one who tells him how to win a girl's heart.
Hell, I love to be a big sister. But now that he's got a "girlfriend"...... It's crazy, I know. But Max used to tell me EVERYTHING. We were pretty close. And now as I'm thinking about it, that changed around the time he met Liz.
Maybe it was my fault? Maybe I didn't have enough time for him because of Alex? I sigh.
Know what? I'll just talk to her. She's a great little girl. The best "girlfriend" Max could choose........

Liked it? Let me know with FEEDBACK!!!

Hi and thanks for the feedback!
I'm in a strange mood right now and I just wrote this part. You have to know this before you read it.
What else? humm.... I think I made some mistakes, sorry.
Anyway:


Part 14

Max POV

I'm playing Isabel-darts. Did you ever play that? No? Well, it's an easy game. You play it like darts but there's a photo of Isabel pinned on the wall. When you hit her head you get 10 points. See, it's an easy game!
I'm pissed. She's out in the desert with Alex......and Liz......
I'll stop doing that. I'll stop thinking about Liz Parker. I'll stop spending time with her. I'll stop eating strawberries!
Suddenly my window opens.
"What doing?"
I throw another dart.
"We've got a door Michael, you know?"
He shrugs and then he looks at the wall. "Oh great! We are mad at Isabel! What did she do?"
He hits her head and smiles. 10 points.
Isabel is the meanest sister ever. She's in the desert with Liz....and without me! But wait a minute, I don't care remember? I don't like this girl. But then I don't have a reason to be mad at Izzy......but I'm soooooooooooo mad!!
"Michael?"
He looks at me.
"Girls are disgusting."
He nods his head eagerly. "Yes, they are." Then he adds "Except Maria."
I roll my eyes. My best friend is obsessed! Poor Michael, Maria doesn't even notice him. Well, in that case I'm as poor as he 'cause Liz doesn't want me around.......good thing I don't like her. I sigh. Okay, so I try not to like her. I helped her with Alex and know she ignores me. That's unfair! Life's a b**ch!
Stop Max, you don't care, remember?


Isabel POV

I tried to talk to Liz during the whole picnic. But no, I'm even too dumb to start a conversation with an eight-year-old girl. I sigh. Now she's sitting over there, drawing.
Alex sits down next to me. He looks over at Liz. "What are you drawing sweetie? A blackbird again?" She looks up and blushes. Then she shakes her head "No, an alien."
Alex laughs. "Poor girl, has to grow up in Alien-town Roswell. I bet she's dreaming about an alien king who comes, rescues her and takes her with him to his homeplanet."
I don't really listen to Alex's babbling about outer-space. My mind stopped at the word "blackbird". I'm always like that, you know? I'm always interested in things people say without much thinking. Like Max's strawberries.......Talking about Max, he also like blackbirds.
"Alex? What about blackbirds?"
He chuckles and lowers his voice. "Well, that's what she's drawing most of the time." He chuckles again.
"And?" What's so funny about that?
He has a goofy grin on his face as he whispers "She draws them 'cause Max likes them. I think she's got a crush on your brother." He laughs.
My face fells. Oh no!! Liz will be heartbroken if I tell her that Max likes this mysterious strawberry-girl. I can't do that! Poor Liz!!
I'm glad I didn't talk to her.....I should talk to Alex about it. Maybe he can talk to her. I just open my mouth when Liz comes over.
"Look." She shows us her drawing.
"Wow that's beautiful Liz!"
"Yes, it's great!"
She smiles and hands it over to me. "Here, it's a present."
"Thanks."
She's so cute! Max, I hope your strawberry girl is at least a little bit like Liz Parker.


TBC??


Liked it? I've been wondering about what I should write all day....Hell, I even thought about ending this fic (I thought about a really good ending) but then I started writing and had to laugh about some things I wrote, so I didn't end it....I hope you don't mind?
Have a nice evening/day!

Hey,
Zur Abwechslung mal auf Deutsch!: Danke für euer FEEDBACK!! (gibts ein deutsches Wort für Feedback? Rückmeldung vielleicht?)
Anyway


Part 15

Liz POV

I feel great. Haha, good try Parker. I feel like crying.
Wanna know why? I overheard a conversation between Alex and Isabel yesterday. Shall I tell you what they were talking about? Hell, I bet you don't want to know.
They were talking about my crush on Max and Max's crush on someone else. Great isn't it? Not only that they know that I like Max (Okay, so I finally admit it! Are you happy now?) but they also pity me because he doesn't like me back. I don't need their pity!!!
I bit on my bottom lip. No, I won't cry. Hell, I'm sitting with Maria in the middle of the shool yard....and Max is sitting right over there. I'm not a baby, I won't cry! Damn you Max Evans!!!
Maria knows that something is wrong and is a little upset 'cause I won't tell her what it is. She tries to talk me into taking these stupid medicines of hers. But it won't help, not in this situation.
I glance towards Max and sigh.
I'm strong, I won't cry! I won't, won't, won't cry. Damn!


Max POV

"But I don't want to Michael!"
"Please Maxwell! You are my best friend....and if you don't do it I'll beat you up."
He won't do that, I know. I shake my head. He wants me to...brrrrr....
Okay Max, next try. He wants me to go over there and give Maria a LOVELETTER he wrote!!! Can you believe that? That would be soooooo embarrassing. All the girls would laugh at me. Well, I don't really care about what the girls say....okay, so maybe except one special girl......
"Max please! I'll give you 5 bucks....I'll tidy your room....I'll buy you a new basketball..."
He is begging. Can you believe that? Michael is begging! That's something I'll tease him about forever!!
"Fine!"
I take the letter and turn around. Breath Max, breath! I close my eyes for a moment and start walking. One step and another step......I'm blushing. Great, I think everyone is watching me. Breath Max, just breath. I stop next to Maria and Liz but they don't seem to notice. I clear my throat and Maria turns around, a surprised look on her face.
"What do you want Max?....It's Max, isn't it?"
I don't dare to look at Liz. Great Michael, that's so embarrassing!!! You owe me!!
I nod and open my mouth but no words come out. Great!
"Cat caught your tongue?"
I glance at Liz for help, but she looks just down at the ground.
"Here." I give Maria the letter and run away.
Great! Remember me that I'll never do something like that again.
I hope Liz doesn't laugh at me....Oh stop dreaming Evans!

Hey,
THANK YOU Lucky Star, I feel really special!!!
This part took me an eternity to write.....
Anyway:

Part 16


Michael POV

I should have NEVER wrote this stupid, silly awful letter! Maria hasn't said anything about it and Max is soooo pissed!!! He said that all the girls were making fun of him. But that isn't true!!! Nobody noticed except Maria and Liz. You know Liz? She's her best friend you know?
Anyway, why should Max care if Maria and Liz were making fun of him? God, I hope they aren't 'cause if they laughed at him, they'll laugh at my letter too.....
Please dear God, let Maria like me and let Max forgive me!!
Hey, now I know why Max is so pissed! He's afraid that Mrs. Saunders hears about this! He's got this HUGE crush on her, you know.......


Liz POV

I guess I should be relieved. Why? 'Cause Maria told me that Michael wrote the letter and not Max. Yeah, I thought it was Max who wrote this stupid loveletter.
The problem is that I'm not. I'm not relieved. I'm thinking about it all the time. It's just..... Max looked so, I don't know,.....hurt? He looked like he didn't really wanted to do that. Maybe that was because he also likes Maria?
You know, Maria is beautiful.....AND she's blonde! Guys always like blond girls. Isabel is blonde and if what Alex's says is true nearly every boy has a crush on her.
Why am I not blond? That's so so so soooo unfair! I bet Max likes blonde girls better. Maybe I should dye my hair.....
Suddenly the telephone rings.
"Liz Parker."
"Honeybear! It's me, Grandma Claudia. How are you?"
I smile for the first time in days. Well, it's a halfsmile but it's a smile!
"Hi Grandma I'm fine. Listen, what do you think about dying my hair blonde?"
Grandma Claudia ALWAYS knows what to do.
"Oh my God NO! Why would you do that? You look so beautiful honeybear!"
I try to believe her, I really do!
"Maria got her first loveletter today."
She laughs. "That's great! I bet she's very excited. Do I know the boy?"
I shake my head. How stupid! She can't see me through the phone.
"No. He's just a boy....." I sound strange, I can hear it myself.
"Is something wrong Liz? I know something's bothering you."
I don't answer and there is a long pause...
"It's because Maria got a loveletter and you didn't, right? Don't worry honeybear, you'll find someone you like too!"
I sigh in frustration. "But that's the problem Grandma! There IS this boy I like but he doesn't like ME!"
I didn't just tell my grandmother that I like Max?! Well, I just told her that I like a boy, so it's not too embarrassing.
"Why shouldn't he like you? Just talk to him....or write him a letter!"
She sounds deadly serious. She can't be serious!!
Oh yeah, I can see this: Me giving a letter to Max and him having a good laugh.
"No Grandma, In fact, I KNOW that he doesn't like me.....he just likes blonde girls, you know?"
"Then he isn't worth it honeybear! You'll find someone better, someone who likes your brown, strawberry-smelling hair!"


TBC?


Liked it? Who else is wondering if Mrs. Saunders has blonde hair?!*big*
I don't know why but I DON'T like the idea of Max liking blonde girls!!!

Hey....
I'm sooooooooooo sorry. This part is again Liz/Michael POV (I didn't want to write same POV as last time, sorry I did) and it sucks!! But there are some things I had to write and the candies have to make some process...
I'm sorry! *sigh*
Anyway:

Part 17


Liz POV

I have to wear the green dress Mum bought me 'cause the Evans are having a barbecue. I don't really like this dress, you know? But Mum says it goes good with my brown hair. My brown hair.....I sigh.
This barbecue isn't really fun. Alex and Isabel disappeared half an hour ago and all the adults are talking about stupid things....and Max, well, I try to avoid Max, but I think he has to help his Dad.
I'm sitting in the living room, bored, and pity myself. I want to go home!!! It's so boring!! At home I could at least play computer..... Wait, Max's got a Nintendo in his room upstairs.
Would it be wrong to go there? What do you think? Hell, why not? Okay, so maybe not 'cause Max wouldn't like me being in his room. I mean, I would mind if someone I don't like was in my room.....
BUT Max is outside helping his Dad. AND I'm bored!
So I go upstairs. My heart is beating really fast. Damn!! It's not like I'm going to do something illegal, right?
I take a deep breath and open the door.
WHAT?! Why is someone in Max's room? I look at the person sitting on Max's bed.
Michael turns around. I blush. Great go Parker!! Michael will tell Max that I was in his room!
"I...I'm....so..rry....I didn't..know you....here." I'm so pathetic! I look down. Great, just great! I look down at the floor.
There's a loooooooooooong silence.
"Liz? Can I ask you something?"
I look up from the oh-so-interesting carpet. Michael shifts uncomfortably. Hell, he blushed too! I slowly go over to sit next to him.
"Okay?!"
He takes a deep breath. "Maria told you about the letter, right?"
Oh, I smile. So that's what this is about. "Yes....?"
Now he's the one who's staring at the carpet. I like it better this way.


Michael POV

I don't dare to look at her. "What....umm....didshesayaboutit?"
I wouldn't have ask her, you know? But it's been a week and Maria didn't say, or do ANYTHING! She didn't even laugh at me! I'm just soooooooooooo confused...
I hear Liz laugh a little. Great! I shouldn't have said anything. Why do I always have to do the wrong thing?
"......too, you know?" Damn, I didn't hear what she said. I look at her.
She looks back at me and then states, "You didn't listen."
She smiles and bites on her bottom lip. She looks kind of cute when she does this. But I like Maria! Damn, she's talking again, I think I should listen.
"...boys, right? Anyway, as I was saying, Maria likes you too. But please don't tell her that I told you!"
I blush but smile. Did you hear that? She said Maria liked me too!!! She said that, right? I'm not dreaming, right?
Liz, consider yourself as my new best friend!....umm...sorry Max!
"Wanna play Nintendo?" I'm glad she changes the topic. She's pretty nice....for a disgusting girl........But wait, why does she know about the Nintendo? I have to ask Max....
But hey, Maria likes me!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Liked it? I know, it's not THAT good....could you post FB?? Please??

Hey,
I LOVE the feedback! Thank you!
Anyway:


Part 18

Isabel POV

I'm feeling guilty. I can't get rid of the guilt, even now that I'm making out with Alex in my room.
I'm going insane! Yesterday when Max went to play basketball I went through all his things. I was looking for something that has to do with strawberry-girl. But no, nothing. Really, I couldn't find anything. Hell, I even looked in his waste paper basket!
If Max did something like that I'd kill him! Hell, I'm so crazy!!!
Why doesn't he tell me who it is? I think it's someone I know. He wouldn't care if it was someone I don't know, right?
So do I know a girl around Max's age? I don't think so......Wait, I think Carol's sister is 9. What was her name again? Jessica? Maybe that's it. I bet she is someone's sister. He's worried that I'll tell her sister......or maybe it's a brother?
Wow, I'd be a good Sherlock Holmes, don't you think so? I'm going to solve this case!
I giggle.
"What's up?"
Hey Alex, why did you stop kissing my neck? It felt sooooooo good!!
"Nothing you have to be concerned about right now, Watson!"
He looks at me strangle and I laugh.


Max POV

I hate it when my parents have a barbecue. I always end up running around to get Mr. Smith this or bring Mrs. Faigen that.....It's so unfair!! I'm not a maid!
Well, it's 7 p.m., most of the people already left so I can finally stop running around.
"Oh Max! Could you get me....."
Arrrrrrrrg!!
"...Michael?"
I turn around and sigh. "Of cause Mrs. Guerin."
She smiles "Thank you Maxwell. I'll just say goodbye to your parents."
I bet Michael is upstairs playing Nintendo. I don't know how he manages to disappear as soon as people start to order us around.
"Michael! Your Mum is loo...."
I stop mid sentence. What the hell.....?!
"Shh Maxwell!" He whispers and points towards my bed. "She just fell asleep, don't wake her up!" He smiles at Liz. What's up here?
"Your Mum is looking for you." I whisper angrily. What did he do with Liz in my room?
He's still looking at Liz, a huge smile on his face. I don't like it! I really don't like it!!
"Michael!" I squeeze his arm.....a little harder than necessary.
"Huh?"
"Your Mum is looking for you!!"
"Oh yeah, right. Bye Maxwell!" He slams the door shut like he always does.
What just happened here? Whatever it was, I don't like it!
I look over at Liz. She's still asleep. Not even Michael's way of closing a door could wake her up. That's good for you Michael!

Hey!
Thanks for telling me what you think!!
I know, Isabel is really dense. But hey, it's not my fault!!*tongue*
Okay, I really like this part, I hope you too. It's a little bit longer than some of the others. Do you mind?!
Anyway:


Part 19


Max POV

"You really don't mind if she stays?"
I shake my head. "No of course not. It's okay! I'll just take the sleeping-bag."
What am I doing? I just agreed that Liz stays the night in my room!
"Thanks Max. See you tomorrow.....oh, and take good care of her!"
Alex smiles and closes the door.
I'm just standing there, still shocked. I look at her and a smile spreads across my face. She's beautiful when she's asleep. Well, she's also beautiful when she isn't......Stop right there Max! Okay, what did I just say? Oh, right! So Liz is spending the night. It's no big deal, I can take it. Or at least I hope so.
She stirs and I don't dare to breath. Please, don't let her wake up before her parents leave. I want her to stay!! I go over and sit down next to her at the floor. I try to get close enough to smell the strawberries. Hesitantly I reach out to touch her hair. I'm not sure if this is a good idea. Liz would be mad if she wakes up. I mean how would you feel if you wake up and someone is sitting next to you and touching your hair?
And if Isabel walks in she would know.......
I don't care. I'll never get the chance to do this again, right?
I start stroking her hair carefully. It feels really soft.
She stirs and I jerk my hand away and sigh.
I sit there just watching her nearly half an hour. Then I take my bag and try to sleep myself. But it's not that easy to fall asleep knowing that Liz is just two foot away.


Liz POV

Where am I? I know just two things: I'm definitely not at home and it's DARK!
I shiver. I told you that I don't like the darkness!! And hell, I want to know where I am!
Okay, last thing I know.....WHAT WAS THAT?! There's something over there near the window. I could see it move!
I squeeze my eyes shut. I don't want to be here in the darkness!
"No, no, no, leave me alone, please! Leave me alone, I didn't do any thing just....go away! Please leave me al...." I shriek open my eyes wide in shock. I didn't imagine that! Someone (or better something?) was touching my hand.
My heart beats really fast. I want to go home!
"Liz?" It's a whisper, barley audible. I open my mouth but nothing comes out.
"Liz, is everything okay?"
"Max?"
"Yeah, it's me. You fell asleep on my bed while you were......playingwithMichael, remember?"
Oh yes, the barbecue! I sigh in relief. Okay, Max isn't a monster. But it's still dark.....
Suddenly I hear a strange noise. I grab Max's hand. "What was that?" I sound frightened, I can even hear it myself. Great, know he knows that I'm afraid in the darkness. He'll think that I'm a little baby!
"Do you want me to turn on the light?" He stands up and so do I 'cause I don't want to let go of his hand. He gently removes my firm grip and I open my mouth to protest but before I can say anything he turns on the small light at his desk.
"You okay?"
I slowly nod my head. He smiles at me.
"We can let it turned on. I don't care."
I resist the urge to hug him. Instead I just whisper "Thanks!"
"You're welcome."
I yawn. I'm still pretty tired.
He chuckles and I blush. Arg!
"You should try to sleep it's late.....I mean early."
I give him a small smile. I'm just about to climb back into the bed when I see the sleeping bag lying on the floor. He has to sleep on the floor because I'm sleeping in his bed?
"I'm sorry." He looks puzzled.
"'bout what?"
I point towards the bag.
"Oh, it's okay, I don't mind."
Maybe I should offer him to share the bed? I shake my head. He wouldn't want to do that.
I finally climb under the covers and he returns to his sleeping bag.
"Goodnight Liz, sweet dreams."
"Night Max."

Hey,
Thanks for the feedback and guess what! Yes, I've already written another part!! Part 20!!!!!
Wow, I'm good!*big*
Do you know that that's my first roswellfic??
Anyway:


Part 20

Liz POV

I'm feeling a little bit strange. Hell, I slept in Max's bed last night! Can you believe that?!
I'm still at the Evan's 'cause it's Sunday and the Crashdown is packed so nobody has time to come and take me home.
I'm sitting in the kitchen, eating breakfast and talking to Mrs. Evans. She's a pretty cool mum me thinks. She isn't such a worrier as my mum is. And hell, she allowed me to eat cookies for breakfast!!! How cool is that?! By the way, the cookies are delicious! I wish my mother could make such cookies. The ones Mum makes taste like sh*t!
"Hi Mum! Morning Liz!" Max walks into the kitchen and steals one of my cookies!
"Hey!! That's mine!!"
He just smirks.
"Say that you are sorry!"
Suddenly he turns serious. "I'm so sorry Liz. I didn't mean to upset you in any way. I hope you can forgive me someday."
What?! I see his eyes sparkle and realise that he is joking.
I start hitting him. "JERK!!!"
We both laugh until we are interrupted by a sigh.
We stop laughing and turn towards Mrs. Evans.
"I'm sorry it's just...you look so cute together!"
I turn pale and Max's face is bright red. Why do people always know what to do to embarrass me?
"Anyway, Max could you just go to the store?"
I sigh in relief. Great, she's changing the subject.
But Max doesn't seem to be happy about it. "Do I HAVE to?"
I stick my tongue out at him. He doesn't deserve it any better! He's a cookie-stealer!
"Thanks for the breakfast Mrs. Evans. Have fun at the store Max."
I give him a sugar sweet smile and go upstairs, giggling.
When I pass Isabel's room I hear someone talking. Is that Michael in there? I go closer to the door and try to hear what they say.


Michael POV

Help!! I just wanted to visit Maxwell. But as soon as I climbed through the window the Isabel-monster grabbed me and took me to her room.
Now I'm sitting on her bed, and I'm really nervous.
Could it possibly be that she found out about Max and me reading her diary? Or did Max tell her that it was us who ruined her favourite T-shirt? Hey, it's not my fault that this dog liked to play with it, right?
"Isabel, I....."
"Michael, I'm going INSANE!"
I smirk. "I know Izzy, I know......"
She hits me with her pillow. "It's not funny Michael!! You have to tell me who Max has a crush on!"
I smile. Should I tell her?
"And why do you think that I'll tell you that?"
"'Cause otherwise I will kill you." My smile freezes. She sounds deadly serious. Hell, I know what Isabel does when she's pissed at someone.....let's just say, it's not a pretty sight!!
"Okay, I'll tell you....." Max will kill me, but Isabel will too if I don't tell her.
"So?"
"So?!"
"MICHAEL!! Who has he a crush on?"
I take a deep breath. "Mrs. Saunders.....our English teacher."


TBC?!


Liked it?? Please feedback!!! PLEASE!!!!!!!!!

Hey,
how are you? Thanks for the feedback!!
Anyway:

Part 21


Isabel POV

"WHAT?!"
That's not possible! Max can't have a crush on his teacher. No, no, NO WAY!
I shake my head. "Are you sure Michael? I mean, did Max say exactly that?"
Michael thinks for a moment. "No, we didn't really talk about it. But he acted so wired.... I used my brain, you know!"
Oh, okay, I don't want to know how Michael's brain works. I bet Max is far from liking this Mrs. Saunders.....and I'm sure there isn't a women out there who smells like strawberries!!!
"I think you are wrong Michael."
"You are right Isabel, Max doesn't have a crush on his teacher."
I turn towards her. "Hell, Liz! What are you doing here?"
Now she knows that Max has a crush on someone else! Great Isabel!!
"I'm sorry.....but I know who he likes."
He told her, I KNEW IT!!
"Wait a moment, he told you, but he didn't tell me?! Why should he do that?"
Michael sounds upset. Liz walks over and sits down next to him. She looks down.
"'Cause.....'cause he has a crush on......Maria."
Maria? I know something about a Maria. When was it that Max mentioned her?
"WHAT?! I knew it. I'll kill you Max. You can't do that! You...."
Oh right! That was the girl Michael thought Max liked!

**FLASHBACK**

"He thinks I like Maria. I don't like Maria! Why should I like Maria? She's so disgusting.... plus she doesn't smell like strawberries! Hell, she's a girl! I don't like any kind of girls!"
(Part 4)

**End Flashback**

I interrupt Michael. "Did he say that, Liz?"
She shakes her head. "No...."
I sigh. They aren't very good detectives.
"I'm sorry but you are wrong too, Liz."
"Are you sure?" Michael is still worried. I smile. Michael jealous, that's just too cute!
"Positive Mickey."
Liz is still sitting on my bed, thinking.
"Who do you think he likes?"
"Well, I don't really know. But I think it's maybe Carol's sister Jessica."
Suddenly the room is silent. We are all thinking about it. Well, Jessica seems to be a good guess. I'm really, really good!!!
"No, I don't think so."
I glare at Liz. That's unfair!!! I wanted to be right so badly!!
"Why can't it be Jessica?"
"'Cause she isn't blonde. Max likes blonde girls better."
"Really? The only thing I know is that this mysterious girl smells......"
Michael interrupts "Let's make a pact! Mission: Who's Max's crush!"
I smile. "Deal!"


Max POV

Finally I'm home again! I hate going to the store.
Mum said Liz is in my room. Great! We can play Nintendo or something.
"Liz?" I open the door to my room but it's empty.
"Liz?" Maybe she's in Isabel's room? I hear someone talking in there and open the door. "Liz?"
What the hell.... Okay, what's up here? She's sitting next to Michael (why is Michael here? And why is he sitting so close to Liz?) on Izzy's bed while Isabel is sitting at her desk. AND they all look like dears caught in headlights! Okay, what's up here?
"Oh.....hi Max!"
I glare at Michael. I don't want him anywhere near Liz!!!
"What are you doing here?"
"Umm...playing Nintendo?"
Oh no, I so do not buy that Michael, forget it!!
"Well, the Nintendo is in MY room."
"Right, let's go. Liz, are you coming?"
She smiles at me. Hell, why is my heart beating so fast?
"Sure!"
I don't like it how they act around each other! I REALLY don't like it!!!


TBC?


Liked it? It was a little bit confusing, wasn't it? Please tell me!!!

I know I haven't updated the whole weekend, I'm sorry guys!
Anyway:


Part 22


Liz POV

I have to act like I'm okay with it. But truth to be told I'm not. I'm not okay with it. I don't want to know who Max has a crush on.
Isabel seems to be sooo excited about it and Michael thinks it's fun. Poor Max they won't stop questioning him until he tells them who he likes. They should leave him alone.
I sigh. That's just unfair!
Hey, shall I tell you something? I'm sleeping better since I slept at Max's. I don't know why, it's silly, isn't it? Yeah, I bet you are all laughing at me. You think I'm a stupid little girl who has a crush on a boy who thinks she's disgusting.
Maybe you are right. Maybe I'm just a stupid little girl.
I sigh again and hug my teddy bear. It was a present Alex bought me a month ago. I called it Max.....Stop laughing! I know, stupid, stupid little Liz.
What was that?! Someone is knocking at my window.
"Hello?"
"Liz?"
"Max? What are you doing here?"


Max POV

Oh Max, it was a bad, bad idea! I shouldn't have come here.
But Isabel was sooooooooooo annoying! It's awful! She's determined to find out who my strawberry-girl is......STOP! Not MY strawberry-girl. (Even if I don't like this fact.)
"I'm sorry...huh....I shouldn't have come here.......It's just Isabel...and Michael..." I wince. Michael....
"Oh!" Is she blushing? "The pact!"
What?
"What pact?!"
She whispers "Well, you know, they made a pact to find out who you've a crush on."
Now I'm blushing. Shit! What does she know about it?
"You.....you know about it?" She's staring at the ground. "Yeah, the day after I slept in your bed, remember?"
Oh yes, the day she was sitting WAY to close to Michael.
"That day in Isabel's room....we were talking about it."
Great, just great! Isabel, you are a dead woman! I can't believe you did this!! Why, why, why?!
It's silent for a long while. We are still standing at her window. Hell, I can't think when she's so close. I can even small the strawberries. I wonder why Isabel still doesn't know that Liz is the strawberry-girl! I mean, NOBODY smells as good as she does!
"And who?"
What? "What?"
"Who...who... have you a crush on?"
I get pale. No!! Please no!! Nonononono!!! I turn around and quickly climb down the ladder.
Run Max run!! Isabel, you are in trouble! You are really in trouble!! I can't believe it!
Hey, why are you looking at me like that? What should I have done? Tell her that she's the girl I like? Oh yeah, sure. That would have been sooooooooooooo embarrassing.

Hey People!
Missed me? *big**tongue**big**wink**big*
I'm in a good mood (really good mood!!) So I decided to give you another part!!
Anyway


Part 23

Maria POV

Guess what?! Tomorrow I'll have my first date. Well, it isn't really a date, like in "going to the movies" or "eating pizza". It's more like meeting each other in the park.
But hey, I'm eight! That's pretty good for an 8-year-old girl, right?
I'm really nervous. Liz tried to calm me down at school but it doesn't really help. I'm just soooooo nervous!!
Even Mum noticed that I'm hyper. She gave me a strange oil or something like that. She says it'll calm me down. But I don't really trust these things. What do you think? Should I try it? I mean, it couldn't hurt, could it? I look at the little bottle suspiciously. I'm not sure.....
AND I think I'm calm enough. Okay, so maybe my hands are shaking and my heart is beating really fast but hey, I have a date with Michael Guerin! That's normal, right?
Okay, I'll try it. I slowly open the bottle. Okay, ONE TWO THREE!!!
Hey, that really helps! Wow, this is great! I can't believe I could survive without it 'til now!
Now I'm ready for my date! Michael Guerin? NO PROBLEM!


Liz POV

I'M SOOOOO STUPID!! Why the hell did I asked this?
Max's gonna hate me!
Just tell me, why did I ask him? Hell, I don't even want to know who it is! I need to talk to someone! I really do!
"Hey little angle! Everything alright?"
I look at Alex and sigh. "No."
He sits down. "Tell me!"
NO WAY ALEX! I won't talk with you about Max. You may know who my crush is but that doesn't mean I have to tell you everything!
"Well,...I...I have this...uhm...secret...and I'm wondering if I should tell someone...."
"You are not going to tell me, are you?"
I'm sorry Alex, I really am...It's just..... I look down.
"Hey Liz, it's okay! You don't have to tell me. But I could help, maybe!"
"No, I don't think so. It's, well, a girl-thing. But not something I can tell Mum, you know?"
He's silent. I look at him from the corner of my eyes.
"Well, maybe you can talk with Isabel.....she's pretty good with this 'girl-stuff'"
I could do that, but it wouldn't help. I know what she thinks. She would just pity me. I don't want that.
The one I really should talk to is Max I guess. I'll look like a fool but hey, then I wouldn't have to worry anymore. Do you think I should do that? Would that really be a good idea?
Hell, who cares? I'll talk to him. Just like that!


TBC?

Liked it? Have a nice day and give me LOTS of feedback!!!



posted on 28-Feb-2002 2:07:12 PM by Lucy
Hey!!
I'm sorry! For what? Well, the last part ended with Liz going to talk to Max...and this one isn't about....well, you'll see!
Anyway


Part 24


Michael POV

She's late. Hell, I hope she's just late and that she's not not coming.
I look around the park, searching for her. Hell, where is she?
I'm glad no one from school is here. I'm nervous enough, you know?
Do you think I should have brought flowers? You do, don't you? I thought about it, but I spent all of my money on baseball cards. I don't know why, I don't even like baseball. I prefer basketball. I'm really good at it. Well, not as good as Max is, but I'm good.
Maybe I should have brought candies. Girls like candies, right? But all I could find was an old chocolate bar and I don't think she would like this, what do you think?
Maria, where are you?
"Michael?"
I turn around, a big smile on my face. "Hi Maria!"
"I'm sorry I'm late! My Mum wanted me to help her with this damn alien-stuff."
She smiles and shifts uncomfortably. This is....wired!
"So...." she starts but suddenly something falls on her head. What's that?
OMG! Hahahaha ....a bird...haha.. can you believe that? A bird....on top of her head...hahaha This is sooooooooooo funny!! I can't stop laughing!!!

Maria POV

Iiiiiiii!!! That bird....OMG!!!
Stop laughing Michael! This isn't funny!
"MICHAEL!! STOP LAUGHING!!"
He just laughs harder. I can't believe he's so mean!! Why is he laughing? Why is he making fun of me?! I thought he was a nice boy! I had a crush on him!! But he's just a stupid, silly, disgusting boy!! Liz was right. Boys are awful!!
"MICHAEL STOP LAUGHING!!" He doesn't! So I take my water bottle, open it and splash the water all over his head.
He's shocked. "Are you crazy DeLuca?"
Now it's my turn to laugh. He looks so damn funny! "It's your own fault Guerin! You shouldn't have made fun of me." I give him a sugar sweet smile.
"You are stupid! I can't believe I liked you!" After he said that he stormed of.
I look after him and shake my head. He wasn't a good boyfriend. He didn't even bring me candies!! I'll find someone better. And YOU Guerin will pay!! That's the beginning of a war!! DeLuca vs. Guerin!!
Now I'll go to Liz and have a girl-talk about how disgusting boys are. She's smart, she always knew. She'll never fall for a boy. I'm going to her. Yep, that's what I'll do!!


TBC?

Liked it?? Post feedback??
Please??

Hey!
Thanks for the feedback!
And, I'm sorry (again!) This part is,....well, teasing...And no M/L! Sorry!!
You'll see!
Anyway:

Part 25


Maria POV

Shit!! I'm at the Crashdown and I just realised that I've still the bird-shit on top of my head!
Great go DeLuca!! I'll ask Liz if I can have a shower.
I enter through the backdoor so nobody can see me. This is sooooooo embarrassing!!
"Hey Maria! What's up?"
"Hi Alex! Hello Isabel! Is Liz home? I need a shower."
Alex stands up. "I'll bring you a towel. But Liz just left I think." Then he goes upstairs.
"Don't you have a shower at home?"
I sigh and sit down next to Isabel. "I do but see, I was at the park...meeting Michael."
MICHAEL!! This damn, silly, stupid, awful, disgusting PIG!!! I can't believe I liked him!!
Okay Maria, breath!! Where's this damn oil??
Oh, there it is! Relax Maria, everything is fine. Just breath...... This oil is great! Wonderful! Amazing! My favourite drug!!
Isabel looks at me. "AND?"
I take a deep breath. "AND LOOK!!!"
I lower my head and squeeze my eyes shut. Please don't laugh Isabel, don't laugh! She gasps. "OMG! Is that...a bird...."
I look at her and nod. "And Michael laughed!"
"He didn't!"
"He did!" ....this damn, awful, stupid, silly, disgusting monster!! I'll kill you Michael Guerin! I'm your worst nightmare!
Okay DeLuca, calm down, just breath!
"And shall I tell you something? He didn't even bring me candies!!!"


Isabel POV

Poor little girl! Life's a b**ch!
I thought Michael really liked her. Well, he's a boy. Boy's aren't sensible enough......well, except Alex..... I smile.
Hmmm, and I'm sure Max wouldn't have laughed either. I hope he doesn't ask Michael to help him with his strawberry-girl! I'll have to talk to him about it.
Maria looks at me. "Are all boys so silly, stupid, damn, awful, disgusting?" I laugh. "Nope, but most of them."
She sighs in defeat. "That's why I came here. I need to talk to Liz, you know? She's not stupid, she doesn't fall for a boy."
Wow, now I'm surprised. Liz didn't tell Maria, her best friend, that she has a crush on my little brother? I'm about to open my mouth when Alex comes back with the towel.
"Here Maria. You can use Liz's shampoo, it's in the bathroom. That's just when you like the scent."
"Hey Maria, need any help? I could help you with your hair after you showered." I smile at her. I like this hair stuff.
Maria thinks for a moment. "No thanks Isabel. I can manage it myself......and afterwards I'm going to kill Michael!!"
A huge smile crosses her face. "See you later!"
Alex sits down next to me. "What was that about?"
"Michael did some REALLY stupid things, you know?"
At that moment Maria reappears. "Yeah, this stupid, damn, disg...."
I interrupt her babbling. "Need anything Maria?"
"Liz's shampoo is....?"
Alex sigh. "In the bathroom. It's the pink one which smells like...."
But Maria is already gone.

Hey there!
It took me an eternity to write this part. I hope you like it. I wanted to write it a lot different, but that's what came out, so deal with me!
Anyway:


Part 26

Liz POV

Okay, so now Isabel is at my house. I waited until she came before I went to have a talk with Max. Don't get me wrong, I think she's great but I don't want her to ask questions. I'm nervous enough!!
I've been standing here in front of Max house for an hour now. And it's really hot today. Nobody is as stupid as going out of the house when it's so hot.
My hands are shaking and my heart is beating really fast. I wonder if this was a good idea. I mean, I know that he has a crush on someone else but none the less I'm here to tell him that I like him.
I should go in now. I don't know when Isabel's coming come.
Hell, I've got nothing to loose, right? I knock at the door and wait.
"Oh, hello Liz!"
"Hi Mrs. Evans. Is Max home?"
What do I do when he's not?! What shall I say if she asks me why I want to talk to him?! What if he's in the kitchen and she's there too? What shall I do when he doesn't want to see me? I mean, the last time we met he ran away! That was a stupid idea!
Got, my heart is ready to burst!
"Liz? You okay darling? You are really pale. Something wrong?"
I take a deep breath. No, I'm not okay. I'm really not okay.
"Everything is fine Mrs. Evans. Is Max home?" Please, say just yes. I can't stand straight for much longer. The whole world is spinning.
"Oh, yes sure. He's upstairs in his room."
"Thanks."
I go upstairs. I move really slowly. When I reach Max's room I'm about to faint.
I softly knock at the door.
"Yes?"
"Hey Max. I'm here to tell you that...........I'm sorry. About you know...."
Please, stop! Everything is spinning. "I didn't mean to upset you, you know? It's really none of my business."
I'll loose my balance soon, I can feel it. I can't concentrate anymore.


Max POV

Hell, she doesn't have to apologise! It was all my fault.
It's time to show a little courage here.
"No Liz, it's okay. I should have just told you. It's just...I chickened out, you know? The truth is that...."
I look up. Hell, she's really pale! "Hey are you okay?"
"N..no, not really...."
She gives me a weak smile. "I probably stood too long outside in the sun."
Great, it's my fault that she isn't feeling well! If I had just told her that I like her back then, she wouldn't have left the house today! Hell, it's so hot, NOBODY should leave the house!
"Come here, sit down!" I lead her over to my bed.
She shuts her eyes and lies down. I hear her mumble something but I can't understand it.
"What did you say?"
Her eyes flutter open for a moment. "I'm sorry."
I sit down beside the bed. "Don't be!"
It's silent for some time. "You wanted to know who I like, right? Well......you."
There, I said it. I look at her. I don't know if she heard me or understand what I said.

Hey guys!
Liked it? Really? Well, I've got a new part for you, isn't that great? I'm sorry, it's again Liz/Max POV, but you don't mind, do you?
Anyway:


Part 27

Max POV

"Me?"
Great, she's shocked.
She looks down at the carpet, blushing. It's silent. Great, she's thinking about a way to tell me that I'm crazy. Then she'll go to Maria and they'll make fun of me.
"You sure about that?"
"What?" What were we talking about? Oh right, I just ended everything. I made a fool of myself. I...
"Are you sure, you know, that you like.....me?"
No, I was just lying. I've gone crazy.
"Huh,....yeah, pretty sure."
You are not going to chicken out now Evans, forget it! Even if she laughs, you won't take it back!
I look at her, uncertain.
Wait, is she smiling? She can't be, can she? I mean, why would she smile? Oh, right, she's laughing because I'm such a fool!
It's silent again. I hate the silence. It makes me just more nervous.
Hell, all I can think of are these strawberries!
"Max?.....Max?....MAX!"
"Huh?"
"Are you REALLY, REALLY, REALLY sure about that?"
I sigh in frustration. "Look Liz, I know that you think this whole situation is so damn funny but...just forget it, okay? I'm sorry, I should have never bothered you.... It's just.... I just wanted to tell you that,...It was selfish, I know and....never mind!"
She giggles. Great! I would hate her but she looks so damn cute when she giggles. Hell, she always looks cute. It's just unfair!
"Max, stop babbling!" She giggles again. I look down, blushing.
Suddenly she's standing in front of me. Hell, these strawberries are making me crazy!!!
She tiptoes closer to me and plants a small, sweet kiss on my lips.
Wait a moment, A KISS?


Liz POV

I'm wide awake by now. No, I wasn't half asleep when I kissed him, I was aware of what I was doing.
I'm still aware of what I'm doing. I turn around and leave a confused Max behind. A huge smile on my face.
Can you believe that? I JUST KISSED A BOY! And not just any boy, I kissed Max Evans! Isn't life wonderful?!
He said he liked me! You heard him say that too, right? I didn't imagine that, right? I didn't believe it at first. But he really said that!
I reach the Crashdown, still smiling.
"Hey Alex, isn't today a wonderful day?"
He shakes his head. "A little too hot in my opinion. What happened?"
I give him a sugar-sweet smile. "Nothing!" I just kissed Max, but that's all!!!!
I go to my room.
"There you are!!" Maria is sitting on my bed, eating ice-cream. "I have to tell you what happened! You won't believe it!"
Well, it can't be more unbelievable than the fact that I kissed Max!!
"Michael was soooooooooooo mean! Boys are DISGUSTING!"
I smile and sit down.
"Are they?"

Hi!
I want to thank you for the feedback! I love you!!
Okay, the end is coming closer and closer, isn't it sad?
Anyway:

Part 28


Isabel POV

I'm insane. That's it. I'm crazy!
I'm looking at the small pink bottle at the kitchen counter. Yes, you guessed right, I bought a strawberry- shampoo. Can you believe that?
I went shopping today, 'cause we needed some things. I was looking for some make-up and then I spotted the shampoo. And I bought it, just like that!
It's been 7 years. Seven years ago my little brother had a crush on a girl that smelled like strawberries. A lot of things happened during these 7 years. Alex and I graduated, went to collage in San Francisco together and got engaged. Yes, we are going to marry this summer, isn't it great?
Anyway, I'm still obsessed with Max's former crush. I bet Max has forgotten about it by now, but not me, no I'm still....arg!!
I grab the bottle and look at it closely. It's a shampoo for little girls. Well, I already knew that!
"Hey beautiful!"
Alex wraps his arms around me. I smile. I'm happy, really, really happy!
Well, I would be even happier if I knew who the strawberry-girl was!
I'm crazy, definitely completely crazy!
"What's that?" Alex takes the shampoo out of my hand. He looks at it and chuckles.
"Wow, it's been an eternity since I last.....wait, you aren't pregnant, are you?"
What? "No, Alex, I'm not pregnant! Hell, why do you think that I'm pregnant?!"
He sighs in relief. " Good! It's just, Liz used a shampoo like that when she was a little girl. I mean, I really do want children with you, just....."
"WAIT!" I turn around and face him. "What did you just say?"
"Well, I said that I want us to have children just..." "NO!" This is frustrating!!
"I wasn't talking about that! You said Liz used a strawberry-shampoo when she was younger?"
I AM SO DENSE!!! I never ever thought that there is the possibility that Max likes Liz! I'm sooooooo stupid! He always talked about her, he was so over protective and.....
I'm so, so, so dense!!
I grab the phone and dial a number. I wait unpatiently.
"Hello?"
"LIZ PARKER!!!"


Max POV

"What? Isabel? Is something wrong with her?"
I look around the Crashdown. I saw her just minutes ago!
"Max, don't play dumb!"
I don't play dumb! I really don't know what she's talking about. I'm just about to reply when Isabel starts talking again. "Oh come on Max! Remember the strawberry-girl you had a crush on about...humm 7 years ago? It was Liz Parker!"
Oh, that's what all this is about! I chuckle. Well it took her pretty long to figure it out.
"Isabel, you are calling me from San Francisco just to tell me, that...." I look around and lower my voice "I had a crush on Liz Parker years ago? Which, by the way, I already knew!"
"Max, I was so proud that I figured it out! Don't ruin it!!"
I laugh. Yes, that's my sister Isabel!
"Okay Izzy, I'm sorry. You are great!"
She giggles. "I really am, no? Bye Max, have a nice day!"
I shake my head and put my cell-phone down. Isabel is a strange person, isn't she?
I'm still smiling. Yes, I really had a crush on Liz. Hey, she was my first girlfriend! The first girl I told that I liked her and the first girl that I kissed! Well, it was the other way 'round, she kissed me.....
But when Alex and Izzy left for collage we kind of lost contact. Nobody knew that we were "together" and so nobody cared.
I think about that time quite often. We had a lot of fun, really! I still have to smile every time I see her. So does she. The strange thing is, that nobody notices it.
Well, we share a secret.


TBC?

Hey!
My computer is still broken but I wrote the part on the laptop for you! BUT I'm very unsure..... about the Max POV. Please tell me what you think about it? About my last part?
Anyway:

Part 29

Liz POV

It’s really strange. I feel pretty wired.
It’s been years since I last was at the Evan’s and now I’m sitting on the kitchen floor playing “Truth or Dare” with a bunch of people.
Why? Well, Max’s having a party and Maria told me that I’m supposed to be here, because his best friend was involved with my best friend (namely Maria) and that she needs my mental support. Yes, you heard right, Michael and Maria are back together after playing tricks on each other for years. I’ll never forget the day she stole his boxers and put them in the principal’s car. It was hilarious!
Anyway, now they are dating and they are the cutest couple ever.
But that means that she’ll disappear into a closet sooner or later this night. I smile, I like it when she’s happy.
But right now Michael is helping Max with the food or something and we ended up playing “Truth or Dare” with some people at the kitchen floor.
“Soooooooo,........Liz! Truth or Dare?”
I smile at Stella and then at Maria, who’s sitting next to me. “Dare.” I always take dare. I don’t like this truth thing. “Oh comeon Liz, you took dare the last four times!”
Yeah, I did and I had to do a lot of....wired...stuff.
“Okay, I dare you to take Truth!” I sigh. I don’t like this truth thing!!!
“Fine.”
“Tell us about....... your first kiss! When, where, how old.....”
I shiver. Well, that’s ironic, isn’t it? I laugh a little.
“I was 9....no, eight......”
Maria looks at me. “That’s not true! You were 12 when Billy Nicholas kissed you!” I smile at her. “Yes, that’s true, but she wanted to know about my FIRST kiss.”
Maria’s eyes grow wide. “Elisabeth Parker!! You, my best friend, didn’t tell me about your first kiss?! Okay, SPILL RIGHT NOW!!!”
All the other’s are laughing. “Well, Maria, I’m sooooooo sorry. It’s just, it used to be our secret, you know? What do you want to know?”
“EVERYTHING! Who, where, why, and if it was a good kiss!”
I laugh and all the others are looking at me curiously. “Maria, I was eight years old, how could it have been a good kiss?!”
“Hey, now I’m hurt! Do you realise that this is my first kiss you are talking about?” Max looks at me, his eyes sparkling.
Maria turns towards me, her eyes huge. “Max Evans?!” I blush. Great timing Parker! You just had to say that when he entered the kitchen, right?

After this embarrassing situation nothing really important happened. Maria disappeared with Michael and now I’m bored. Well, old habits die hard.
I wonder what Max’s room looks like? I mean, it’s been a while since I was here.
I carefully open the door. I hope I don’t disturb something!
No, it’s empty, good! I look around but I don’t dare to turn on the light. Wow, it changed a lot! Well, what did you think it would look like Parker? Last time you checked he was a little boy and now he’s a 17-year-old. A pretty cute 17-year-old by the way.....


Max POV

“What are you doing here?”
She jumps and turns around.
“Hell Max, you startled me!” She blushes. Well, at least I think so. It’s too dark to see anything.
I smile. “So, lovely Miss Parker, what are you doing here in the darkness? By the way, weren’t you afraid of the darkness?”
She hits me playfully. “No Mister Evans I was cured of that when I was eight.”
I laugh and turn on the small light at my desk, like I did years ago. Then I turn around, but that was definitely a very bad decision. Do you know how beautiful she looks in that kind of light? Well, she’s also beautiful when ...... Stop right there Evans!
She smiles and starts biting on her bottom lip. I wonder if she still smells like strawberries.....or tastes like them.
I decide that it’s been silence long enough. “Isabel called me the other day.....” I chuckle. “She somehow found out that I had a crush on you. It only took her 7 years, isn’t she great?” She giggles but suddenly she turns serious again. “Well,...I’m sorry about earlier, you know? When I told them that you were a bad kisser....” She blushes and now I can see it.
“It’s okay....” Damn, I hate this husky voice! “ I improved, you know?” I slowly walk towards her. Damn Evans, what are you doing?
I reach out and touch her cheek gently. “You did?” Her voice is barely audible and her breathing quickens. I don’t answer and lower my head. She doesn’t jerk away and so I gently press my lips against hers. Her arms move slowly around my neck and my tongue softly slides along her bottom lip, asking for entrance. I was right, she tastes like strawberries.
She opens her mouth and I deepen the kiss. Without breaking the contact she stumbles backwards and I slowly lay down on the bed with her, one hand still ON her cheek the other one resting on her waist.
After several moments we break apart, breathing hard. It’s silent for a long time.
“You were right!” I look at her questioning, my thumb softly stroking her cheek. She giggles. “You really improved.” I chuckle. “You too.”
“Can I ask you a favour?”
“Anything Miss Parker!” I really mean it, I would do anything for her right now.
“Do I get......another kiss?”
I tighten my grip around her, my head resting on my pillow. “Well, if you want me to kiss you, you have to do me a favour yourself. I want you to go out on a date with me.”
She smiles. “Deal!”
I bring her closer to me and move my lips towards hers, stopping just millimetres away.
“Max!” She wince, her lips brushing mine lightly. “Stop teasing!!!”
I smile and close the space between us. She immediately opens her mouth and deepens the kiss, her hands moving down my back until they reach the bottom of my shirt.
Suddenly she stops and jerks away. What’s wrong?
She starts laughing really hard. “Liz?”
“Remember the day we found Alex and Isabel making out in her room?”
Yes, I remember that day. It was the day we first met.
I nod.
“Do you remember what we said back then?”
A smile spreads across my face. “I’ll NEVER EVER will do something like that!!!”
She giggles. “And now look at us!”
I chuckle and put my arms back around her waist. I bring her closer, lean over and whisper in her ear,” That’s so DISGUSTING!!!”


THE END

Liked it? Okay, so that's my story "Disgusting". Please tell me what you liked best, okay?
