Summary: Someone comes in to Liz’s life and changes it forever…
Hi, my name is Liz Parker and this is my life. You could say that I never really believed in anything. I never believed in love. I always thought it was just a scam played on the heart. I never believed in fate, or destiny either. I am not a believer. Wait, let me rephrase that I wasn’t a believer, but that all changed the day a certain Max Evans came into my life. We met three years ago. God, I remember the day we met like it was yesterday.
It was a Monday, back to school, it was his first day at West Roswell High. His family had just moved there because his dad got a job offer at the law firm here. I never really like going to school, my best friend Michael Guerin always criticized me on how smart I am but yet I never apply myself in school. I have known Michael my entire life, same with Maria Delucca, Alex Whitman and Kyle Valenti. We have been friends for as long as I can remember.
Michael loves art. Lately he hasn’t really worked with his art because he has been busy with working and going to school. I really wish he would pick up art again though because he is really good. Like I said we have been best friends for the longest time, my mom and his mom went to high school together and they were the bestest of friends so I guess it was written we were going to best friends or something.
Maria and Alex are the music type people. Maria loves to sing, and Alex loves to play the guitar. Put those two together and you have the best music ever. I mean they are really good, but they don’t pursue it because their parents don’t believe in their kids playing music. Both of their mom’s wants them to become lawyer’s and their dad’s don’t really care what they do.
Kyle is the daddy’s boy. He gets all the straight “A’s.” He is a goodie too shoos. He wants to be a sheriff like his dad one day. See major daddy’s boy. But it is kind of cute don’t you think. Kyle is really cool to hang out with, he is in to the whole Buddha thing too. It is really annoying sometimes but with Kyle everything’s annoying.
So yeah, anyway back to my story. I was sitting in Biology when Max walks in. I swear he is like the sexiest guy I have seen. All I could do was stare at him, I mean wow. I was snapped out of my daze by Miss. Hamen’s voice.
“Class we have a new student, his name is Max Evans.” She said. The class mumbled hi’s and hello’s. “Go have a seat next to Liz over there,” she said pointing to me. Max made his way over to me. “Hi I am Max,” he said as he sat down. “I um….hi….I’m Liz” I said stuttering.
I felt so embarrassed after that because I am usually not a babbling idiot. That is Maria’s job. From that day on Max and I got to know each other better. I introduced him to my friends, and we all got to meet his sister Isabel. She seemed really bitchy at the time but as time went on she became really cool.
Like I said before I never believed in destiny or fate, but at that exact moment when all of us were sitting there at the lunch table I had the feeling that we were supposed to meet. I am so glad we met too, because now I am actually focused on school work and I have pick up my life a lot since that day.
Max and Isabel changed all of our lives. Michael started to paint again. Maria picked up her singing career with Alex. Kyle started to work in law enforcement. Maria and Michael finally stopped picking on each other and fell in love. Alex and Isabel are working on a relationship, and Kyle is with a girl named Tess we met in college.
I bet your probably wondering what happened between Max and I. Well stick around and you will found out.
Feedback please…if I get a lot of feedback I will post more…thanx….

|Thank you for all of the feedback…here is the first part…|
They had all graduated from high school, and all applied to UCLA. They wanted to go to college in California. They all got in, and they had to decide who was going to room with whom. So since Maria and Michael where serious about each other they got a dorm together. Isabel and Liz shared a dorm room, and Max, Alex, and Kyle shared a room. They have been that way for about a year.
Liz walked into her dorm room after a long day of school and work. She was going on a date with Max tonight and she was really nervous because Max said it was a surprise. They had gone out many times before, but this was different. She got ready for her date with Max, she decided on wearing and lavender dress that came to her mid-thigh, with her lavender strapy sandals. She put on a little bit of make up that brought her face out and she put her hair up in a ponytail. Liz smiled to herself as she thought back to the first time Max had asked her out.
Max was pacing back and forth in his room, right before he had to go to school. “God, how am I going to ask her? What if she says no? Why would she want to go out with me anyway? Okay Max get yourself together, she will say yes, okay so just get your books and go to school” he said as he was walking out of his room. He met Isabel down stairs, and they were off to school.
“God Max what took you so long,” Isabel asked. “Sorry Iz, I was arguing with myself,” he said almost laughing. “What?” she asked confused. “Nothing,” he said as they drove the rest of the way in silence.
They got to school, and Max was really nervous. He got out of the car and started to walk toward the building, he went inside and the first thing he saw was Liz. She was standing at her locker with Maria, Alex, Kyle, and Michael. ‘God, she looks beautiful’ Max thought to himself. Him and Iz walked over to them. “Hey guys,” Isabel said. Everyone said hi back. “Um…Liz can I talk to you in private please?” Max asked as Liz turned to him. “Um..Sure,” she replied. So they went into an empty class room, “Okay, Liz I am going to ask you a question, you promise you won’t laugh.” He said. “Yeah I promise I won’t laugh,” she replied. She was really confused at this moment. “Um, okay look I was wondering…wouldyouliketogotothespringformalwithme?” Max asked in a rush. “What,” Liz asked blushing at what he said. She heard him she just wanted to make sure she heard him right. “Would you like to go to the spring formal with me?” he asked again slowly.
“Max, I thought you would never ask, of course I will go with you,” Liz said jumping up and hugging him while kissing him on the cheek. So they went to the spring formal and had a wonderful time, and they had been dating ever since.
Liz was snapped out of her daze when she heard a knocking on the door…’that must be him’ she thought to herself. She looked herself over one more time, and went to go answer the door.
She swung the door open, and on the other side stood Max wearing a pair of dark blue jeans, with a black button down shirt with a few buttons undone at the top, and the outfit was topped off with his spanking new leather jacket. Liz had just bought him that jacket for his birthday.
“I told you that jacket would look really sexy on you,” she said as she grabbed her purse closed her door and locked it. “Hey, I never disagreed,” Max said teasingly. “So where exactly are we going on this fine evening?” she asked. “I told you it was a surprise,” he said leading her out of the building. They made their way over to his silver eclipse convertible. He opened her door for her, but didn’t let her get in right away.
When she made her way to get into the car, he pulled her arm, and pulled her into a passionate kiss. They kissed for what seemed like forever, they stopped because they had to come up for breath. “Wow,” Liz said. “What was that for?” she asked. “Nothing, I just felt like kissing the most wonderful woman in the world,” he said. She blushed at this statement. They got in the car and drove off. They drove for what seemed like forever.
They eventually stopped and Liz noticed they were in the woods somewhere. “Max where are we?” she asked. “Come on follow me,” he said getting out of the car and grabbing her hand as she got out of the car too. They walked a little ways before Liz heard the sound of water. They walked a little further, until they came upon a sight that was really beautiful.
There was a flowing waterfall, and as Liz looked around she saw a blanket on the ground with a picnic basket, and lit candles. “Wow, Max this is beautiful,” she said. “I’ve seen better,” he said wrapping his arms around her waist. “I wanted to make this night special for you Liz because…” he was cut off by her kiss. She pulled away, “I know why Max and thank you, this is so sweet, it is like my deepest fantasies are coming true,” she said. “Liz I love you, you know that, but now I would like to show you,” he said looking into her eyes.
“Then show me…” Liz said as they both leaned in to kiss each other.
Feedback please…what do you think…more?

|Thanx for all of the feedback…here is part 2!|
Max slowly led her to the blanket he had laid out. He told her to sit, so she sat down and Max sat down next to her. “So Liz, how do you feel for some strawberries and whip cream?” he asked her in a seductive voice. “I love strawberries and whip cream,” she replied in the same tone. “Good,” he said as he reached over to pull the basket over to him. He pulled out a bowl full of whip cream and strawberries. He scooped up a little whip cream on his finger and brought it up to his mouth and licked a little bit off of it. “I want to try,” Liz told him as she grabbed his finger and led it to her mouth. She pulled his finger and sucked on it, causing Max to groan. She smiled to herself as Max slowly pulled his finer out of her mouth. “Liz your going to be the death of me you know that,” he said as he dipped his finger in again, put the bowl down, crawled closer to Liz, and smudging the whip cream on her neck. “My turn,” he said. He dipped his head down and started to lick can suck at her neck. “Mmmm…” was all Liz could say.
Liz slowly started to lay down, with Max on top of her. He kept nibbling and sucking at her neck. “Mmm…Max make love to me,” she said in between moans. “Your wish is my command,” he said and they both started to chuckle, but when they looked into each others eyes, things became serious.
“God, Liz I love you so much,” he said. “I know I feel the same way,” she replied. They leaned in to kiss each other. The kiss lasted forever, before they both pulled away. “Liz are you sure,” he said just to make sure she was comfortable with what they were about to do. “Max, I have never been so absolutely sure of anything in my entire life,” she said with such certainty in her voice.
They made love under the stars all night long. It was the most incredible experience for both of them. They eventually fell asleep in each other’s arms, and didn’t wake up till the next morning.
Next Morning Liz’s dorm room:
“So nobody has seen Max or Liz all night?” Isabel said. She called everyone this morning when Liz never came back to the dorm. “Last I heard Max had some mystery date planned for her,” Maria said. “Yeah well what would posses them to stay out all night long,” Michael said.
As if on cue they heard laughing from the hallway. Isabel went to open the door, and sure enough coming down the hallway were Max and Liz, they were giggling, hugging and kissing each other all at the same time. “Where the hell have you guys been?” Isabel asked/yelled at the same time. They stopped what they were doing and just looked at her. “Oh hey Iz,” Liz said. “Don’t hey Iz me, where were you guys, we were worried sick,” she said as she grabbed Liz away from Max and hugged her, then she hugged Max.
Liz walked into the room followed by Iz, and Max. “I’m sorry Iz, we didn’t mean to scare you guys, we just got caught up in the moment I guess,” Liz said hugging everyone else. (Everyone includes Kyle, Maria, Michael, Alex, and Tess) “What do you mean you got caught up in the moment?” Michael asked. Liz and Max just blushed, and Maria figured out what they she was talking about. “Okay, we have nothing to worry about, they are home and they are safe, isn’t that enough,” Maria stated. Everyone mumbled “yes” and “I guess”.
Eventually everyone left leaving Max and Liz alone again. They all had classes to go to, but Max and Liz had the day off from everything. “So babe, what do you want to do today?” Max asked as he hugged Liz. “Oh, I don’t know, I was thinking we could stay in bed all day, or we could go on a picnic,” Liz said kissing him. “I like the staying in bed all day, but why don’t we go on a picnic then come back here and stay in bed the rest of the day,” he suggested. “Okay,” Liz said.
They both started gathering things for the picnic, and they both were thinking that this was going to be the best day of their lives. But little did they know something is about to happen that will change their lives for a little while.

|Hey guys sorry it took so long for me to come back…I have been so caught up in school work it is unbelievable…thank you for being patient…here is part 3!|
Ps- thanks for all of the feedback…and sorry I keep doing one part at a time…
PSS-the parts in ‘’ is Liz’s journal entry…
Max and Liz had just gotten out of the car. They were walking towards the park hand in hand. They got to the park area and chose a spot, Max laid out the blanket, and Liz started pulling out the food. They sat there eating, laughing and talking about anything and everything. They were having the best time of their lives.
“Lizzie…” they heard a man say.
They both looked up at the man and Liz gasped. “Oh my god,” she whispered to herself. Max just stared at the two of them staring at each other, apart of him knew this man was dangerous, but the other part was jealous that Liz knew him. “Liz I missed you…” the man said breaking Max from his thoughts.
Max went over to Liz and helped her up from the ground she had gone totally pale. “Uh…Hi, I’m Max,” he said extending his hand to the mystery man. The man took Max’s hand but his gaze was focused on Liz. “Hi, I am Devon,” he replied back. “Max get me out of here,” Liz finally said something. “What, your not happy to see your own father,” Devon said. “Max please,” she pleaded. “Um it was nice to meet you, maybe we will see each other again sometime,” Max said as he gathered everything up and then led Liz away.
“Oh we will meet again soon my precious Liz,” he said smiling evilly then walking away from the park. The whole car ride back to the dorm Liz didn’t say a word. She looked really pale and was visibly shaken up. Max picked her up out of the car and carried her to the dorm. He took her to her room, and laid her on her bed. She fell asleep almost immediately. Max sighed took off his shoes and got in the bed with Liz, he scooped her up in his arms and held her. They stayed like for a while.
Liz was up late that night. She had taken out her journal that she hadn’t written in, in like 3 years. She opened it up to an empty page and just started writing. About and hour later she fell asleep with the journal in her lap. Max woke up shortly after that and walked over to her. He saw that she had something in her lap, he didn’t know if he should read it or not but he decided to anyway.
It is March 5, 2002, I’m Elizabeth Parker and today my life was turned upside down.’
Max finished reading the first sentence then looked at Liz. He sat down beside her and continued to read.
‘It has been ten years since I last saw him, and when he was here they weren’t happy years either. I hate him for what he did to me. He probably expects me to forgive him for everything he has done. I can’t do that. He left when I was about 11 years old, and I was glad to see him go. He broke my heart. He broke my mom’s heart for what he did to me.
I used to think he was the best dad in the world, he would take me to the park and push me on the swing. He would take me to the pool every summer. We would go to the carnival that came through town every year. I would always laugh when I was with him. When I turned 7 all of that started to change. My dad started to drink alcohol, I don’t know what possessed him to do it but he did. He started to get mad at me over the simplest things like whether I left the cup on the table or if I left my crayons on the floor.
One time he got so mad at me that he started to hit me. I yelled for my mom and she came in and pulled him off. I cried my self to sleep that night. The next day he swore it was an accident and asked me to forgive him, so what did I do? I was a dumbass and forgave him. He started to beat me on and off for the next year or so. Eventually I got so fed up I stopped talking to him, even though I was only a child I knew what he was doing was wrong.
One night he came into my room while I was sleeping. He was completely drunk. He pulled the covers off of me and stared at me. The next thing I know I open my eyes to see him hovering over me. I started to scream but he covered my mouth. “Shh, it is okay sweetie,” he said, I didn’t know what was happen then but I felt pain in my stomach and my vagina. It really hurt, I started to scream in his hand. But he wouldn’t stop’
Max stopped looking at Liz, so that is why she said she wasn’t a virgin. He just stared at her, he didn’t want to keep reading but he did anyway.
‘This “raping me” thing went on for about a year before my mom found out. I wanted to tell her so many times before but I just couldn’t bring my self to say anything. God Michael, Maria, Alex, and Kyle didn’t even know. I didn’t tell anyone. One reason was that he said if I ever told anyone he would kill me. The other was because I was scared because I didn’t want anyone else to get hurt. My mom found out and she kicked him out of the house. She wasn’t mad at me for not telling she was just hurt that the man she loved was hurting her only daughter. She also filed for divorce, so that got Devon really mad.
I don’t need this in my life. My life was just getting good, and then he comes back. I don’t even consider him a father anymore; I mean what the hell is he doing here. I am really scared and I don’t know what to do, or what to tell everyone else about him. I am so scared.’
Max finished reading and looked at Liz again. “Oh my god, she had to go through all of that pain alone.” He said to no one in particular. He pulled her into his body and she snuggled into him. He picked her up and carried her back to the bed. “I won’t let anyone hurt you baby, not while I am here, I love you,” he said as he laid down beside her kissed her goodnight and went to sleep.

|Hey guys thanks for all of the feedback…sorry it took me so long to come back with another part I have been caught up in schoolwork and the drama club…thank you for being patient here is part 4 and 5…I will try and have part 6 up tomorrow or later today…|
Liz woke up the next morning and felt warm…and surprisingly her neck didn’t have a cramp in it. She sat up and looked around and noticed that she was in bed with Max, she was really confused on how she got there, and then she spotted something out of the corner of her eye. She spied her journal lying on the floor where she was writing in it last night. Then a bizarre thought popped in her head ‘Did Max read my journal? No. He couldn’t have, he wouldn’t would he?’ She got out of bed and went over to her journal…and no sooner had she picked up her journal Max had woken up.
“Liz,” Max said aloud. “Hey Max, um I have a question it is a stupid question really, but did you read my journal?” Liz asked. All of the sudden Max was awake, he was scared of what she would say if he said yes, and he couldn’t lie to her, he just couldn’t. “Yes,” He answered quietly but loud enough for Liz to hear. Liz just starred at him for a few seconds before she blew up. “Max how could you? A journal is someone’s private thoughts not for other people to read…” Liz said. “I know that, but you were so shaken up after what happened yesterday I had to find out what happened, I’m sorry…I just,” Max didn’t get to finish because Liz had cut him off.
“What you couldn’t of asked me first before reading my journal, I can’t believe you of all people would do something like that, I mean seriously Max did you think I wouldn’t mind if you did, all because you’re my boyfriend or something,” Liz said. “Liz even if I did ask you, you probably wouldn’t tell me anyway, now would you.” He said. Liz didn’t even say anything, she just turned back to her journal. “I didn’t thing so, God Liz why didn’t you tell anyone what happened, someone could have helped you out…I mean not even Michael, Maria, and Alex know. How do you think they would feel because you didn’t tell them what was going on, they could have helped you, you didn’t have to go through it alone.” He said walking closer to her.
She turned around and startled him, “Max do you even know what it is like to be put in a situation where you can’t tell anyone what is happening to you because you scarred for your life. I didn’t think so. I wanted to tell someone so bad…I was scarred Max, I didn’t know what to do. I felt as though my whole world was turned upside down and there was nothing I could do about it. Do you know how it feels to cry your self to sleep at night after being raped, did you know that when I was around a bunch of people I still felt trapped and so alone. There was nothing that I could do Max, I tried telling my friends and my mom, but I couldn’t, I couldn’t let them go through the pain that I went trough…it isn’t fair.” She finished with tears coming down her face.
“Okay Liz, maybe I don’t know what you went through but I do know that you didn’t deserve to got through the pain either. And if anyone says otherwise then they don’t know what kind of person you really are.” Max finished and tried to step closer to her so he could pull her in his arms and hold her until all of the pain was washed away. “No, Max you don’t get it,” she said as she walked away and towards the door. “I want you to leave,” she said as she opened the door. “What? Liz you can’t be serious.” He said. “Max I need time alone, so I need you to leave, don’t call me, don’t check up on me, okay, I have to be alone to work things out in my head.” She finished. “Liz I…” he started. “Max please just go…” she said looking at the floor.
Max left and Liz closed the door. She had never felt so alone and so confused at the same time in a long time. She hated the feeling, she just wanted to crawl into a whole and die. She hated herself, hated herself for not telling anyone what happened, hated herself for kicking Max out when she needed him the most, hated herself for lying to everyone for all of these years. Liz eventually got up of the floor and went back to bed. Little did she know, that Max never really left, he was waiting outside the door for her whenever she would need him. Eventually Max fell asleep though, he was trying so hard to stay awake but couldn’t, and that is how Liz found him later on that night.
Liz woke up later that evening, she felt a lot better. She picked up the phone and called Max, she needed him more than anyone knew. She dialed his cell phone number, it started to ring, but then she heard the familiar ring from outside the door. She went to the door and opened it to find Max asleep in front of it. She almost cried at the sight. She had never loved more than she did at this exact moment. She gently shook him to wake him up. He woke up to find her beautiful face staring back at him. “Hey,” he said hoarsely. She didn’t even say hi before she crushed her lips to his. Max gently picked Liz up and carried her into the room. He closed the door with his foot and carried her to the bed.
He gently laid her on the bed, with out breaking the kiss. “Max, I love you…” Liz said once she broke the kiss to get air. “I love you too baby,” he said. He started to kiss down her neck sucking and nibbling eventually leaving his mark on her. Liz gently moaned Max’s name, and that urged him further. “Max make love to me,” Liz said loud enough for Max to here. “As you wish sweetheart,” he said. They made love for the rest of the night. Eventually they fell asleep in each other’s arms and that is how Isabel found them the next morning.
Isabel unlocked her door and walked into her room. She turned on the light and looked over to see if Liz was still in bed. Isabel smiled at the picture of Liz and Max curled up in the sheets holding each other as if their lives depended on it. She quietly made her way to the kitchen to get a drink. She didn’t hear Liz wake up and put some clothes on or even walk in the kitchen, so when she turned around she was scarred to death. “God Liz you scarred the crap out of me,” she said and the chuckled a little bit. “I am sorry, I didn’t mean to,” Liz said grabbing the coffee can so she could make some coffee.
“So were have you been for that last day and a half?” Liz asked Isabel in a curious manor. “Oh nowhere, just off with Alex somewhere, having the time of our lives,” she answered with the biggest smile that lit up her whole face. “Well I am really glad you found someone Izzy,” Liz said while hugging her. “Thanks,” she replied. “Hey Isabel, what are you doing later today,” Liz asked her. “Um, nothing why?” Isabel asked. “I was thinking that all of us could get together and have a picnic or something later, or even go to a movie,” Liz said while continuing tot fix the coffee. “That sounds like great idea, let me go call everyone okay.” Isabel said as she went to go call people. Liz just smiled and continued to make the coffee. She hoped this day would turn out like she planned; she wasn’t ready for another run in with a certain person she hated.
But little did she know this day was going to become a disaster.

|Hey guys…here is part 6! (Thanks for the feedback)|
Liz wanted to tell her friends what was going on, she did, she just didn’t know how to tell them, and she was also scared that they would think it was her fault about what happened. She was always considered the strong one of the group and she was afraid she would let everyone down by telling them this. So here she was sitting on the picnic blanket while Maria, Isabel, and Tess chatted away and the guys played basketball. She was really happy at that moment just to see her friends together, they hadn’t done that in a long time.
She was so lost in thought she never heard they guys come up to the blanket. When Max put his arms around her, she yelped because it startled her, but then playfully smacked Max on the arm for scaring her. They spent a few hours talking before they decided to leave. As they were getting ready to leave two guys in black suits came up to the group. They walked to Liz and said, “Are you Elizabeth Parker?” Liz just shook her head confused. “We would like to ask you a few questions concerning Devon Smith,” one of them said. Everyone, except for Max, looked at Liz wondering what was going on. “What about him?” Liz asked, and Max held on tighter to her. “Well maybe we should talk in private…” one of them couldn’t finish because Liz cut him off, “What ever you have to ask me you can ask me in front of my friends.”
“Okay well first my name is Agent P. and this is Agent Q.,” Agent P. pointed out. Liz shook each of their hands.
“Now first question, what is your relationship with Mr. Smith?”
“He was my stepfather,” Liz said.
“Okay did Mr. Smith ever do anything to hurt you or your mom physically?”
Liz just stared at them for a few minutes before answering, “Yes.”
All of her friends gasped at this statement, they never knew that her stepfather was hurting her. Maria kept thinking how stupid she was, all of the bruises Liz had, she knew Liz was never the klutzy type of person, so she never believed Liz’s stories of bumping into things or falling down. Max was thinking good for you.
“What kind of physical abuse did he cause?”
“He used to hit my mom, and when my mom wasn’t able to do anything, he came to me and started hitting me sometimes,” Liz said quietly as tears started to form in her eyes.
“Is that the only physical abuse?”
Liz silently shook her head ‘No’. Max held on to her tighter then ever to let her know he was with her every step of the way.
“Well that is all of the questions for now, if you have anything else to tell us please call us,” Agent Q. said while handing her a card.
The agents quickly walked away, got in their car and left. “Okay what was that about?” Isabel asked voicing everyone’s question. Liz just turned around and silently looked at them knowing that she would have to tell them now. Nobody ever heard another man come up to the group. When Max got one look at the man he had to hold back all of his strength not to run over there and beat him senseless. “Hello everyone,” Devon said. Everyone turned and looked at him. “What I don’t get a hello Mr. Smith?” he said smiling innocently. As if he was anything but innocent. “What do you want?” Max asked gruffly. “I just want to have a little chat with Lizzie here,” he said while looking at Liz.
“Yeah, well I wouldn’t talk to you if you were the last man on Earth. You have no right to come into my life asking me for things after what you did to me.” Liz said as the tears started down her face. “Oh, but Lizzie what could I have possibly done to you, I loved you like my own child,” he said trying to get closer to her. “You loved me, Ha, that is a joke if I ever heard one,” Liz said. Everyone just sort of looked between the two of them, it took all of the guys strength not to beat him down right here in this very park, because they all knew that this was Liz’s stepfather. “Oh come on Lizzie I just want to talk,” he said grabbing for her arm. Liz quickly backed away as all of the guys jumped in front of her. “Damnit, Liz why are you being such a stubborn Bitch,” he said only to be answered with a punch in the face. “Don’t you ever call Liz that again,” Max said after he punched him. “What she deserves it, she is nothing but a bitch and a slut, I mean come on, look at her,” he was cut off by someone else punching him in the face. Alex jumped up and down holding his hand because it hurt, Isabel tried mending it as much as possible.
“I suggest you leave, Mr. Smith, and if you ever come near Liz again, you will regret it.” Michael said picking him up and throwing him farther from the group. “This isn’t over,” Devon said. He walked away without looking back. Everyone turned to look at Liz but she had kind of fainted. Max rushed to her to check for any head wounds, but found none. He picked her up and carried her to the car. Everyone else cleaned up the up the picnic and then followed Max back to the dorm rooms.
Everyone got there and saw that Max had already put Liz in bed. “Okay what was all that about?” Tess asked. “I know, but it is not my place to tell you because it is Liz’s decision whether she wants you to know or not,” Max said not taking his eyes off of Liz. “And how do you know Max?” Michael asked. “I kind of read her journal,” he said quietly. “You what, Max how could you do that,” Maria didn’t finish because they heard Liz moan. She quietly opened her eyes and then looked around, “I guess you guys are probably wondering what happened,” Liz said sitting up. Maria quickly ran and got Liz some water.
“Okay before I tell you guys anything I am really sorry that I am not as strong as you think I am,” Liz said. “Liz what do you…” but Maria couldn’t finish because Liz cut her off. “Okay you know how I told the agents that Devon used to hit me, well he did more then hit me. Whenever I wouldn’t listen to him, he would hit me.
