Summary: AU!! Future fic, they’re all 25... guess who are the aliens!!!

Isabel looked at her surrounding and she smiled. She couldn’t be happier. She had her best friends and her first cover shot on Cosmo. hey were all at a club celebrating Isabel’s achievement.

“We’re celebrating, she says, it’ll be fun, she says,” Michael said glaring at Liz.

“Stop complaining, Michael, we’re here for Isabel,” Liz said.

Michael hadn’t had a good experience so far. The waitress spilled his drink all over him which resulted in him being sticky.

“I’m happy for her, I am... but I don’t see why I have to come along, there’s a game on tonight,” Michael whined.

“Michael, shut up and be happy for my sister,” Max said as he squeezed Liz’s hand.

“I am happy for Izzy. You know I’m happy for ya, right, Iz?” Michael said.

“Yes, Michael, and you didn’t have to come,” Isabel said.

“See,” Michael said to Liz as he got up.

Tess grabbed his arm and pulled him back down.

Michael opened his mouth to protest.

“Shhhhh... the performance is about to start,” Liz said.

Michael glared at Tess as she leaned against Kyle.

“And we have a new and talented performer tonight. Here is Maria Deluca and her manager, Alex Whitman!” a lady who was dressed very casually said.

The lights went off as the audience’s applaud died down. Everything was quiet and then they heard a pretty strum from the guitar. A spotlight turned on and revealed a cute dark-haired lanky man playing the acoustic guitar.

Isabel looked at him. Apparently this man should be Alex, Isabel thought. hmmm... he’s kinda cute...

Michael tapped his fingers impatiently. Suddenly a beautiful low seductive voice washed over the room and Michael’s ears perked. Another spotlight turned on and showed a beautiful blond-haired girl.

I wonder if he has a girlfriend, Isabel was still thinking about him, What are you thinking, Is? That girl, Maria, is probably his girlfriend.

Michael’s eyes roamed up and down Maria’s petite body.

My tea's gone cold, I wondering why I got out of bed at all
The morning rain clouds up my window and I can't see at all
And even if I could it'd all be grey, but your picture on my wall
It reminds me that it's not so bad, it's not so bad


Maria opened her eyes and she saw the many little candles in the center of everyone’s table. But she made eye contact with the person who was sitting right in front of her. He had messy spiky hair and she kept the eye contact.

I drank too much last night, got bills to pay, my head just feels in pain
I missed the bus and there'll be hell today, I'm late for work again
And even if I'm there, they'll all imply that I might not last the day
And then you call me and it's not so bad, it's not so bad and


Alex looked up from playing his guitar... and right in front of him was the most beautiful girl he’d ever seen in his life. A blond girl who looked like she belonged in a cover of a magazine.

I want to thank you for giving me the best day of my life
Oh just to be with you is having the best day of my life
Push the door, I'm home at last and I'm soaking through and through
Then you handed me a towel and all I see is you
And even if my house falls down now, I wouldn't have a clue
Because you're near me and
I want to thank you for giving me the best day of my life
Oh just to be with you is having the best day of my life.


Maria finished the song and the audience roared with applause. But Maria, Alex, Isabel and Michael were oblivious to it.

TBC.

... yeah... this is where you now leave some feedback *happy* please????

Thanks for all the great feedback! we appreciated it!

~*~Part 3~*~

knock, knock, knock

Maria opened the door rubbing her eyes.

“Alex!” Maria started to say, “What the hell, it’s 2:30 in the morning.”

“I know, I know,” Alex said stumbling in.

“I was worried about you,” Maria stated angrily.

Alex nodded and fell on the only bed there. Yet again, at another roach motel with unidentifiable things growing in dark corners and in cracks on the walls and bath tub.

“Alex, I was sleeping there,” Maria said.

Alex just looked at Maria, “Good night, Maria,” and with that he fell asleep.

Maria cursed under her breath as she grabbed the top covers and laid on the floor.

“When you wake up tomorrow, you better watch out.” Maria continued to grumble as she curled up into a ball to keep herself warm.

The Next Morning

“Wakey, wakey, Maria.”

Maria opened her eyes and groaned. Alex was lying there facing her.

“How the...” Maria started to ask.

“I felt sorry for you so I put you on the bed,” Alex stated with a smile on his face.

Maria smiled at her best friend. “You’re the best, Alex,” Maria said.

“I know, now c’mon let’s go get some breakfast,” Alex said.

Maria laughed, “Okay.”

Michael’s Place

Michael yawned as he stepped out of his room he walked to the kitchen.

“Hey Max,” Michael said sleepily. Michael did a double take, “What the hell are you doing in my apartment? Wait, how did you get into my apartment?!”

Max just looked at him.

“Dude! How many times...” Michael started to say.

“Yeah, yeah, yeah, I know... it freaks you out,” Max nodded, “I’m just telling you to be careful tonight, there’s something odd... I can just feel it.”

“They can’t be harmful if Liz was their best friend,” Michael said.

“I know... just be careful, I’m going to go see Liz now,” Max said while walking to the door.

“Lock the door on your way out,” Michael said as he ventured to the kitchen.

Isabel’s Place

Isabel walked into her apartment. Her hair was tied up in a ponytail, she had just come in from her morning jog.

“Hey, Max, what are you doing here... where’s Liz?” Isabel said looking behind him for Liz.

“I’m going to see her after this,” Max said with a serious tone.

She walked into the kitchen, followed by her brother.

“Listen, Max, I know why your here... and you know just as well as I do that they’re harmless,” Isabel said.

“I know... I just want you to be careful,” Max said.

“Hey, is Tess and Kyle going to come along?” Isabel asked.

“Yeah I would think so,” Max said.

Date Night

Liz and Maria saw each other and squealed.

“I still can’t believe we found each other!” Maria said.

“In Roswell, nonetheless,” Liz replied.

“Yeah, how did you end up in Roswell?” Maria asked.

“Well, I met Max in UCLA and well, yeah, long story short, complicated circumstances led us here.” Liz said her eyes reflecting in sadness and fear. “Why are you in Roswell?”

“Heh, just like you... complicated circumstances for both me and Alex led us here,” Maria said, looking into space.

Max slid behind Liz, “Hey baby.”

“Hey,” Liz said.

“C’mon we got our table, we can go in now,” Max said to both of them.

They walked into the restaurant. After a while after catching up on old times laughing at inside jokes and filling in one another on it, they paid for the check.

Once outside they noticed some men dressed in black suits wearing sunglasses walking straight towards them.

“They’re after us!” Isabel, Max, Maria, Alex said in a whispered scream.

“They’re after you?” They all said simultaneously again.

“Hurry up get into the car,” Michael said.

Thank goodness they had all arrived in Tess’ minivan. They all ran into the car as the men in black ran towards them. Tess gunned the engine and took off.

“Okay now... who are you?” Max started to threaten.

“We should be asking you the same question,” Maria shot back giving him an untrusting eye.

Suddenly Liz gave out a yelp in pain. She had twisted her ankle on the way to the minivan.

Without thinking Max healed her. His palm touching her ankle and that familiar tingle going through his hand.

Maria and Alex watched in wide eyes.

“You’re just like us,” Maria and Alex gasped.

TBC.

Part 5-(Christiana)-

“Listen, I don’t care what you say, I refuse to be like the Virgin Mary and be pregnant without ever having sex,” Maria complained to Alex.

“Well, have sex then,” Alex said, too distracted with the game on the tv.

Maria’s mouth hung open. Fire radiated out of her eyes, she raised her hand and slap. Maria hit Alex right over the head.

“Did you even hear what you just said brother?” Maria asked with her hands on her hips.

Alex was rubbing the spot that Maria slapped him with, “God, Maria, I was just kidding, can you please learn to take a joke?”

ring!

The telephone rang and Alex and Maria looked at each other, and they raced for the phone.

Alex got to it first, “HA HA I beat you I beat you.”

Maria glared at him, “What are you 5?”

Alex stuck his tongue out at Maria. “Hello?”

“Hey Alex,” It was Isabel.

“Oh hey Is,” Alex said.

“I just wanted to know if you and Maria would like to have lunch together,” Isabel asked.

“Uh... ye... yeah,” Alex stuttered.

“Okay, I’ll see you at 12?”

“Yeah 12”

“Oh and Alex?”

“Yeah?”

“I love you.”

Maria gasped and touched Alex’s shoulder.

“Oh my God did you feel that? I think hell just froze over,” Maria said.

Alex glared at Maria.

“I love you too, Is.” and with that they hung up the phone.

Maria bursted into laughter.

~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~

“Okay so what are we going to do if you guys are pregnant?” Max asked Maria and Isabel.

They were at the Crashdown eating lunch.

“Well, I guess the only thing we can do,” Maria said.

“Keep it,” Maria and Isabel said simultaneously.

“I have an idea,” Maria said. Maria got up to leave. “Meet me at my room Isabel, Alex will be able to let you in.”

~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~

Isabel found herself sitting on the couch 30 minutes later when Maria opened the door carrying 2 big brown paper bags.

“It’s amazing what you can do with a dollar and alien powers,” Maria joked when she saw Isabel.

Isabel laughed.

“What’s in the bags?” Isabel asked curiously as Maria threw her purse on the table.

“My big plan,” Maria said as she walked toward her bed. Isabel followed her.

Maria opened one of the bag and threw its contents on the bed. There had to be about 20 pregnancy tests spread across the bed.

“This, is your big plan?” Isabel asked.

“Well, seeing as we’re ‘part human’ I thought that the pregnancy tests would at least be able to tell us something,” Maria said.

“Maria, I don’t think I can pee that much, how many test did you buy? 20?” Isabel asked.

“24 to be exact,” Maria said as she walked to the other bag and opened it. She pulled out four 2-liter bottles of Cherry Coke, a bag of ice, chocolate cupcakes, a couple of movies, two bottles of clear nail polish, several magazines and an egg timer. “Sit down Izy, and make yourself at home, it’ll be a long day.”

The whole day Maria and Isabel had basically had a bonding day. They watched the movies, changed colors of the nail polish with their powers, read some articles and took some quizzes, ate some chocolate cupcakes, and drank Cherry Coke.

By the end of the day they had finish drinking all four bottles of soda. They found themselves in the bathroom.

“Okay are you ready?” Isabel asked Maria.

“Do I have a choice in the matter?” Maria asked.

“No, not really,” Isabel said.

“Then I’m ready,” Maria said.

After taking the tests they set the egg timer for 5 minutes.

Maria and Isabel sat on the bed in silence for the longest five minutes of their lives.

What if I’m pregnant? I’m too young to be pregnant, I’ve never even had sex before... Maria nervously thought.

I have a photo shoot for another magazine tomorrow, oh my god, what if I’m pregnant, I wouldn’t be able to do modeling for a while... I can just see it now, people asking me who the father is, all those tabloids... Oh shut up Isabel! Stop thinking so negatively! Isabel thought to herself.

buzz!

Maria and Isabel jumped, they snapped out of their stupor and looked at each other as the egg timer went off.

They nervously walked into the bathroom to see the fate of their future.

Slowly and cautiously they approached the tests Maria’s in one pile and Isabel’s in another.

Maria and Isabel took one look at all of their test and their eyes went wide...

TBC??

tell us what you guys think!!

I"M REALLY REALLY REALLY SORRY YOU GUYS!!!
