Spoilers: None, it's totally AU.
Distribution: Ask me first! You'll most likely get it.
Summery: AU. I'm not sure about the aliens but probably none. Liz's parents had a divorce when she was in 6th grade and went to move in with her dad around the same time in Washington State. And Liz and Tess are stepsisters.
Authors Note: Hey! Let's try this again.... I'll do the whole fic this time.. there are 20 parts....
Feedback: NEEDED!!! One word is fine with me!

Part 1

Liz's POV (Point of view)
Great! I am sooo happy. Okay, I lived with my dad in Olympia/Lacey, Washington. Never heard of it? Well you probably did in 5th grade because (Olympia) is the capital of the state. Now, I'm on the plane headed to live with my mom in Roswell, New Mexico.
My mother lives there and so did I until the summer of 6th grade (before 7th), she got remarried in June to Edward Harding and its August 23rd. Ed is the father of Tess. She despised me throughout my grade school life so I don't expect anymore from her now. She is Miss Popularity, next to Isabel Evans. Sister of Max Evans aka my crush. Well he used to be.
I remember when I lived in Roswell my parents owned a restaurant called The Crashdown. Max would come in every day after school sometimes with his sister and her friends. So I would see him there and at school since we were in the same class from 3rd grade until I left. I did miss him though. He was really nice and sweet. But he was really shy (like me) so Maria (my best friend I think) would make fun of me. So I would say that she like Michael Guerin aka Max's best and seemed like only friend. I still don’t get why because he could be very popular if he wanted too. He has the looks, the personality, the skills, everything. The girls loved him and most of 'em had a crush on him at some point in the years and the guys liked him because the girls liked him and he was oh so good in sports etc... Oh well.
I wasn't the most popular either, but I did have a large group of friends. The best including Maria Deluca and Alex Whitman. I wonder if they still wanted to be their friend? Well I'll find out when I get there. When she (Maria) used to say that Max was always nice to me and stuff but he was like that to everyone! And that he would stare at me or something like that. She was just trying to keep my hopes up and then I'll get hurt! The plane has landed.

Tess' POV
I hate this!! My "father" remarried and to Nancy Parker no less!! He said that he needed to for some reason but I didn't listen to it. I still don't get why Liz Parker's mother. I mean I hate that girl and now she comes to live here!?!? Everything is messed up in my life.... Well except at least I have the guy everyone else wants a piece of!

Max's POV
I can't believe she is coming back!! Liz Parker is coming back to live with her mom. I got the news from Tess. She was over and talking to Isabel and told her while I overheard. Maybe I'll have a chance with her! Dream on, Max! Why would she want you? I had the biggest crush on her when she used to live here and saw a picture of her that was taken recently and I am in love all over again!
Another problem, Tess Harding. My sister's best friend! That girl thinks I like her and she says that I am her boyfriend. Where did that come from? I hate that girl! She shoves her chest in my face and thinks I like it! I hate when she does that or even talks! Her voice is one the most annoying sounds! She started this "trying-to-get-me-thing" in 7th grade. It's getting really old.
Now I usually keep to myself. I am the star quarterback and captain of the football team along with the basketball team but I am still one of the most shy people in the school. I stay out of the lame light. Aside from the games or practices I am just quiet, shy Max Evans. That's the way I am but I seem to get a lot more attention than I want. I don't want any!! Kinda strange, the star quarterback is shy. But I play well and I like to play them. Oh and I'm a straight A student. Yet another difference from the other jocks. Do I don't fit the normal jock.

Liz's POV
I am walking down the tunnel thing. I am in the airport and my mom is here. She is with two other people. A golden-blonde girl (not Tess) and a tall, lanky, brown haired boy. Oh my god! It's Maria and Alex! I haven't seen them since I left!!

Maria's POV
So my best friend is coming back from hibernation. She moved away to Washington State. Can we say cold? Now she's coming back to live with her mom. Okay I know, I know you heard this already so I won't go down memory lane with you. Jeeze pushy pushy. Well I am hoping that we will get reacquainted with each other. I'm gonna ask if I can spend the night or visa versa.

"Liz! I can't believe you're here!" Maria screamed
"I know! I wasn't sure if you would remember me and still wanted to be my friend!" Liz replied
"How could you think that? You are my best friend!" Maria
"Ditto" Alex said with a huge grin on his face
"Well it has been 4 years!"
"Group hug!!!"
Once they let go Liz turned around to hug her mother.
"Hey mom!"
"Well, hey yourself."
"This town has missed you."
"I would think it forgot about me!"

Max's POV
Liz is here. She's here. Don't ask me how I know but I do.

Authors Note: I'm sick so I got to go home from school early... at about 11 so here is part two
Feedback: NEEDED!!! One word is fine with me!

Part 2

"Where's your stuff?" Nancy asked
"Oh, they're at baggage claim. I brought all my stuff so nothing is being shipped here. But there are about 5 bags I think of my stuff." Liz replied
Back at Max's house

Isabel walks into Max's room and he is day dreaming again.

"MAX! Wake up!!!"
"Huh? Oh, hi Iz. Wusup?"
"Nothing much, so what were you doing?"
"Are you sure? I mean you were really out there."
"Yes I am sure."
"Well, you know Liz Parker is coming back today."
"Yea I know." Max said trying to hide his smile in which he failed to do.
"Well, what are you gonna do about it?"
"What do you mean 'What am I gonna do'? I'm not gonna do anything."
"C'mon Max. You're turning 17 in a couple days and you still haven't had a girlfriend! I mean every girl in school wants you! So by all means what's up with that?"
"Nothin. Just no one catches my eye."
"What about Tess?"
"What about Tess?"
"Well, she seems to like you and she IS my best friend."
"Yea I'm quite aware of that."
"Why don't you go out with her? Just once?"
"Because you know I don't like her. She is just annoying how she tries to get me and that’s the way it's gonna be."
"You know if you need anyone she'll be there. "
"And besides, she has a boyfriend. Remember?"
"Oh yea. Well she told me she is going to dump him tomorrow."
"That doesn't mean she's gonna go out with me you know. I'm not gonna go out with her...EVER."
"Fine, be that way but don't be crawling back to me when little Lizzy Parker rejects you."
"I won't."
In the car...

"...Oh! And we hafta have a spend the night! I missed a lot of your life so we need to get reacquainted! Like do you have a boyfriend?"
"That's a good idea! Can you sleep over at my house since it's my first day I don't think my mom will let me go. And no."
"What do you mean no boyfriend? I mean you're beautiful!!"
"Me? I am plain but I had a guy, not exactly boyfriend. His name is Sean Taylor and we broke it off before I left. You?"
"Nope. But I have my eye on someone."
"Ooo Ooo who is it?"
"If you must know it's..."
"Michael Guerin" Alex butts in
"I was supposed to tell her! It is my life!!! And besides YOU like Isabel Evans, Miss Ice Queen herself!"
Alex blushed
"Maria? You and Michael?!?! You guys used squabble (hehehe I just like that word!!) All the time when I was here! YEA!! I AM RIGHT!"
"Yea well.... I’m right too!"
"What is that supposed to mean?"
"Well if you must know, Max Evans has found out you are coming back and is asking me about you. And he was all mopey after you left and hardly came to the Crashdown but he does now."
"Well, he probably got over me by now! I mean it's been 4 years!!!"
"I wouldn't think so. I heard that he almost fainted when he saw a picture of you at your mom's place."
"And why would he be over there?"
"Tess and him are lab partners; he was probably doing homework."
"He could also be going out with her. So he could be taken."
"I don't think so chica. Max Evans hasn't gone out with anyone...EVER. Come to think of it I don't think he's even kissed a girl before."
"What?!?! He's what? 16? He has to have kissed a girl at least once!"
"Hey, I don't know much but if he has it isn’t from any school around here!"
"And why would that be?"
"Because he is hot priority! No one has gotten him so everyone wants a piece of him... Captain of the football team and star quarterback, Captain of the basketball team. Tall, dark, and handsome. The mysterious guy! Every girl has made a move on him before and some of the cheerleaders do it everyday so watch it."
"She's right you know. He's like his sister except he's the shy, quiet one."
"Oh sorry Alex."
"It's okay. I'm used to listening. I mean I'm friends with Maria Deluca!"
"Watch it buddy!"
Evan's Household

"Iz I'm going to the Crashdown."
"Sure, okay, bye!"
At the Crashdown
Max goes to a booth and Lindsey, a waitress comes over.
"Hey, Max" she says in a seductive tone
"What can I getcha?" 'Oh yea I'm getting to him now! Watch out Tess dear!'
"Cherry coke, Saturn Rings, and a Sigourney Weaver."
"Okay coming right up!"


"We're here!"
"My mom is here first so I'll see if she brought my stuff in yet."
She looks inside and there's only 3 BIG bags left.
"Okay Alex can you get one?"
Liz picks up both of the large bags and walks in the door when she falls.

Max's POV
Oh my gawd. There she is! She's falling! I gotta help her.

Max gets out of his seat to catch Liz. And she looks up, she sees someone who looks like Max Evan's. 'Wow! He sure grew up!'
"Here." He reaches out to get the bags.
"So do you remember me?"
"I think so...You're Max Evans, right?"
"Yea and you're Liz Parker! Welcome back!"
"Thx, so are you gonna bring that up for me or am I gonna have to risk falling again?" He blushes
"Oh, sorry lead the way."
When they get to her house she meets her mom.
"Hey mom, which room is mine?"
"You have the same room as before. Your old room."
When they get inside...

"You can drop the stuff down."
Maria comes in
"Hey beautiful people!" Max thinks 'Liz is beautiful'
"Max you can leave now, I need to get to know my best friend again."
"Okay well Bye. I need to go and do my lab with Tess now so I'll see you later."
"Yea okay! Bye."
