|I am sooo sorry it's taken me so long to get out this last part. My life is just caos! Even before all the tragedy we faced recently. My job is sooo stressful and I've just had writers block so bad!|
But I finally sat down tonight to write and it started flowing. I hope this part isn't too bad. For some reason it's just not seeming to be what I wanted, but I didn't want to wait until I felt like writing again. Hope it's okay.
Thank you everyone for all of your feedback on this story and following it through with me.
I hope you enjoy the conclusion.
*** (There will be a sequel coming soon!) ****
The sequel is called.... "A Rebel's Heart"
Inside My Heart
Rating: PG-13 – NC-17
Category: M/L [Do I write anything else? ;)] and everyone else thrown in.
Summary: Liz’s Grandma was the first person near the Crash sight in 1947. What if she helped a wounded alien hide the pods and agreed to protect them? What if she knew the story of their past lives and how important they were to their planet? What if there were FIVE pods, only one was slightly damaged and opened six years earlier then the others were supposed to open, making this podster an infant when she emerged from the pod?
Author’s note: Other than the ship landing with the pods in 1947, everything else is my version of Roswell. Which means, among other things, that NOTHING in season 2 happened!!! THANK GOD!
Disclaimer: I own nothing. These characters belong to Melinda Metz, JK, and UPN.

Parts 1-44: Repost board
“Inside My Heart” and other stories of mine…
From Part 44…
Max growled low in his throat as he crawled on top of her, both realizing how long it had been since they’d been together. Max’s kidnapping had taken a lot out of them, and made their need for each other even greater.
Their eyes met and their desire blazed. “I love you Max Evans.” Liz whispered, as she gently caressed his beautiful face, never tiring of looking at him or touching him. She knew she would never get enough of him in this lifetime or any other.
“I love you back Liz Parker.” Max whispered back just as intensely and pressed a kiss into the hand that caressed his cheek.
“Max…the time…” Liz bit her lip thinking of the danger.
“We have another two hours. I want to love you all night and into tomorrow, but for now we’ll have to settle for this, cause I need you so much my angel.” Max answered hoarsely.
“Oh yes Max…please. Love me Max. Now!” Liz sighed and arched her back to allow their bodies to touch from head to toe. She purred as she felt Max’s hard erection against her own aching body.
Max growled and swooped down to cover her waiting warm lips once again as he began to remove their clothes.
Liz helped as they fumbled with their clothing in their hurry to have their bodies touching completely, skin to skin. Only when Max slid his hard body into Liz’s waiting one did they both sigh in relief.
Liz’s arms were wrapped around Max’s neck and she had tears of relief in them as she looked up at her one and only love. Her other half.
“Don’t ever leave me again Max.” she pleaded even knowing that what lie ahead could make the plea impossible for him to promise.
“Never! I swear Liz. No matter what happens, I’ll be by your side, or die trying.” He said seriously. “You’re my everything Liz. You’re my angel, my Queen, and my one and only love forever.” Max whispered softly and huskily against her ear and then kissed a tear off of her cheek.
“Love me Max! Make love to me before we have to leave.” Liz sobbed and wrapping her arms and legs tightly around Max, she reached for his hot mouth again. She needed his taste like she needed water to live.
Max slanted his mouth over Liz’s trembling one and groaned into her recesses as he drank from his angel.
Max moved slowly in and out of Liz until the need grew like a burst of energy ready to explode, and the pace quickened along with their breaths.
Max leaned up on his hands and began thrusting into Liz with deep quick thrusts that left them both crying out the others name as they exploded into ecstasy together.
Max collapsed onto the bed and rolled Liz onto his chest, never breaking contact with her. He tried to catch his breath as Liz clung to him, not letting him leave her body yet. Max was in no hurry to separate from her so he just ran a hand gently down her soft silky hair that he loved so much, and took deep breaths, his eyes closed as a small smile played on his lips.
Liz clasped Max with her arms and legs, not ever wanting to let go, as she too closed her eyes and just listened to Max’s heartbeat slow. Her heart matching his perfectly beat for beat.
Maria bit her lip as she walked into the living room where her mom was going through a new shipment of alien themed stuff for her store.
“Oh hi honey. You’re just in time to help me figure out what all I ordered this time and where I can put it in the store tomorrow.” Amy smiled glancing up briefly to see her daughter and Michael enter the apartment.
When neither of them said anything Amy looked up again and frowned when she got a good look at her daughter’s face. “Maria? What’s wrong? You look so pale! What? What’s going on? Michael?” Amy looked from one to the other. She’d known Michael for years as he’d been a childhood friend of her daughters for forever, and she was thrilled when Maria’s first real boyfriend turned out to be Michael. She knew he would take good care of her daughter.
“Ummmm…. Mom, I need to talk to you… but we don’t have a lot of time, so could you …. could you just…like listen to everything I have to say before you say anything.” Maria asked, as she sat down across from her mother on a two-seater couch and started wringing her hands.
Michael sat beside Maria and held her shaking hands to calm her.
Amy looked at the two teens and their clasped hands and their pale faces and her own face drained of color and then flooded with anger.
“Oh my GOD! You’re pregnant right!? Oh Maria! Michael! How COULD you! I trusted you two and if you couldn’t keep your teenage lust under control there was always a way to be careful! Maria I even gave you some protection and now you come to me with …with THIS….” Amy ranted and stood up to start pacing.
“Mom!” Maria interrupted, her face red with embarrassment since she hadn’t even slept with Michael yet. “I’m not pregnant!” Maria shouted to be heard over her mother’s ranting.
“Oh.” Amy said and took a deep breath and then let it out with a smile. “I knew I could trust you honey.” She said and sat down again.
Maria rolled her eyes at Michael who tried not to laugh. Maria’s mom was a character but he loved her and knew where Maria got her wild ravings.
“Mom, can you PLEASE just listen. Hear me out, and then…then you can…. well, respond.” Maria said suddenly exhausted and she hadn’t even told her mom the story yet.
Max and Liz hand in hand walked into Liz’s place quietly and saw Liz’s parents looking around the small apartment and hugging each other sadly.
Liz’s lip trembled as she watched her parents and she felt guilty. It was all because of her that her parents had to give up their lives, their home and their business.
“I’m so sorry mom, dad.” Liz swallowed and as they turned to her, she ran into their arms.
Nancy looked at Liz with surprise and then shook her head. “No Liz! It’s not your fault honey! Your dad and I don’t blame you are Michael, or any of you.” She said including Max in her look.
Nancy kissed the top of her daughter’s head and held her tightly and then held her at arms length to look into her daughter’s eyes.
“Your dad and I thank God everyday for having brought you into our lives. You are the most important thing in the world to us and nothing is more important to us! We will miss this place and the memories of watching you grow up here, but you and Michael are all that are important.” Nancy said seriously, wiping a tear from her daughter’s eye.
“Your mom’s right Lizzie. We love you so much. We don’t know what we would have done all these years without you. I’m going to have a close friend of your Grandma Claudia’s watch the business for us and it won’t close up. And someday we hope we’ll be back. But keeping you safe and being with you is all that is important to us.” Her dad agreed.
“Grandma Claudia has someone who can continue running the Crashdown?!” Liz perked up. She didn’t want her parents to lose all their hard work and money and time they had put into the restaurant.
“Yes, my friend Tim will be glad to help out.” Claudia said as she came from the guest bedroom with her own bags.
“Grandma! Are you coming with us?” Liz brightened.
“No honey Behr, I’m sorry. I need to get back to my work in Africa. But I will keep in touch with you all through Mr. Stewart, but it might be awhile before I can come see you. We don’t want anyone following me to you.” She said softly and with a gentle smile.
Liz’s eyes filled up again at the thought of not seeing her grandma for a while.
“Oh Grandma!” Liz swallowed and ran to the woman for a big hug.
“It won’t be for that long honey. Just until you are all settled in to your new place and we know for sure I’m not being watched.” Claudia explained and stroked her granddaughter’s hair softly.
“I am glad that I’m leaving you in such good hands with your parents and Max though.” Claudia smiled and then hugged Max too as he came closer to comfort Liz.
“You can count on me Grandma.” Max said seriously, meeting the woman’s eyes.
“I know I can Max. I’ve never doubted it. From the first moment I laid eyes on you.” She smiled and Max and Grandma Claudia shared in the knowledge of how much they both loved Liz.
“Okay Maria, for a moment you had me going there, now can you quit joking around and help me with this shipment.” Amy laughed after Maria told her about her friends being aliens and why they all had to leave immediately.
Maria looked from her mom to Michael for help. Her mouth open in astonishment that her mother’s reaction was so calm and that her mom didn’t believe her.
Michael could see Maria’s mother was in shock and denial and he swallowed as he looked at the time and knew they needed to leave soon! He knew they had to still pack up Maria and her mom for who knew HOW long a stay away from here, and he stood up to take care of that.
“Mrs. Deluca, I’ve never lied to you and I wouldn’t start now, not when this is something serious. I know this is a lot, but you have to believe us and start packing. You need to leave with us. You are in danger too.” Michael said as he started for Maria’s room to get her packed, leaving Maria to finish with her mom.
Amy’s mouth dropped open at Michael’s casual, but serious words and she stood up and then sat down again looking from where Michael had gone, to her daughter still sitting on the couch across from her very upset and shaken.
“Maria?” Amy swallowed realizing her daughter had not been kidding. She shook her head to clear it but still couldn’t get past the ringing in her ears as she tried to comprehend that her daughter was serious. Her daughter’s friends were aliens and in danger from another species that was trying to take over the planet and kill all of them.
“I…I…I can’t just leave! My business! Our apartment? My stuff? You… you have school tomorrow young lady and this is the worst excuse I’ve ever heard you use to get out of it.” Amy started again, still unable to take in all she’d been told.
“Mom please…you must start packing, we don’t have any time. I’m so sorry to spring this on you all at once, but we just don’t have any more time!” Maria exclaimed anxiously, biting her lip and wringing her hands again. How was she supposed to get her mother over the shock and packed within the next half hour!
“Maria…Tell me this is all a dream….or a sick joke?” Amy pleaded as she looked at her stricken daughter with her own stricken features.
“Mom…” Maria didn’t even know what to say anymore.
“Amy…” they both heard a deep calming voice and turned toward the door.
Maria sighed in relief at the sight of Jim Valenti. He was here to pick them up and she knew that he had come early to help her with her mom.
“Jim!? What… I…what are you doing here? We don’t have a date do we?” they had just recently started dating and Amy was hoping she had not forgotten a date with him.
“No…. I’m here to get you all so we can leave. We don’t have much time.” He said evenly as he approached Amy Deluca who now stood in the center of the room looking lost and still dazed.
Amy looked up at Jim Valenti like he had two heads and then realized that he was a serious as her daughter.
Amy swallowed and met Jim’s understanding eyes and then she fainted.
Jim caught Amy to him and sighing he told Maria to go pack for her mother.
It was still two hours before daylight would break though the stars when the group headed out of town in the four vehicles led by Eric Stewart in Max’s jeep.
Max looked back as the lights of Roswell got smaller and smaller as they drove away from their homes, maybe for good. He wanted to be positive and think they would be back some day, but was afraid. The future was unknown. He was the king of another planet with a very powerful enemy out there trying to hunt him and his people down and destroy them and Earth. How could he have faith in the future even being normal again.
“We WILL be back someday, Max. And we’ll all be okay.” Liz whispered softly up at him as she lifted her head from his chest and put a hand to his cheek.
Max swallowed down at the huge brown eyes that held his soul and he hugged her small frame to him tighter. So much strength in one little body he thought. It never ceased to amaze him and make him proud of his Liz.
He suddenly knew she was right. They would be okay. As long as he had Liz by his side they would be okay. No matter what the future had in store for them.
The Sequel will follow soon -
