Part 1

Liz Parker sat outside on her balcony looking at the stars. Why can’t everything be as peaceful as this, she thought. Alex died a couple of weeks and she was still trying to figure out who murdered him. Max was pissed at her....well, basically everyone she knew was pissed at her for saying that it was an alien who killed him. If I could only find a way to prove to them.
“Liz!” Someone called her from below. It didn’t sound like Max’s voice so she cautiously walked over to the edge. She looked down and saw a man not far from her age. He had black hair with streaks of red. His eyes were dark brown, almost black, and they were mean and piercing. They didn’t look right next to his soft facial features. Liz stood there for a minute before she asked, “Who are you? What do you want?” Without answering he started to climb up the ladder. Liz backed away and started towards the window. “What do you want?” she repeated.
“Hello Liz,” he said. His voice was thick and raspy. He stepped closer and held out his hand. His fingers graced Liz’s cheek and she stepped back. “Tell me want you want or I’ll...”Liz started.
“You’ll what, Liz, huh. Will you scream your lungs off until till someone comes help you? It would be to late by the time they got here. We would already be gone.”
“ What the are you talkin....”Liz started.
“ What the hell is going on here? Who the hell are you?” Liz peered over the man’s shoulder and saw Max standing behind him.
“ Max, what a surprise. I was just up here talking with my new friend Liz. We were getting along just fine until you showed up. But hey, it’s like that famous earth saying, the more the merrier.”
“ Liz, what’s going on here.” Max looked at Liz. Liz was speechless, she knew who he was. The way he looked at Max with such hatred. The way he said that “earth saying.” He’s Khivar. He’s here, on Earth, and he’s come to kill Max. but why is he here. And why did he say he was taking me somewhere. Liz looked at Max. Max was staring at Khivar. He’s figuring it out, Liz thought. Max suddenly got this look of realization on his face but it was soon replaced with hatred.
“ So, you’ve figured me out. I’m back Max. But I’m not here to kill you. Not yet. I’m here for your pretty little girlfriend.”
“ Don’t you hurt her.” Khivar grabbed Liz and stood her in front of him while he held her hands behind her back. Tears were silently falling from Liz’s face. “ What do you want her for.”
“ Well, I can’t tell you my whole plan, but I can tell you that it does involve me taking her back to Antar with me. But now that you’re here it’s not going to be as easy as I thought. Or is it.” Khivar held out his hand and energy burst from his palm. Liz looked up and saw Max fly through the air and into a brick wall.
“ No!” Liz cried her voice suddenly found. “ No! Stop it! Let go of me! Get the fuck off of me!”
“Now, now, stop screaming. You wouldn’t want your parents to wake up and come and see all of this.” Khivar started walking towards the ladder taking Liz, who was struggling against him, along with him.
Max slowly opened his eyes and looked up. He saw Khivar taking Liz down the ladder. “Liz,” he said weakly.
“Max! Max! Help me! Max!” Liz screamed and tried to hit Khivar. Max looked up at her and tried to stand up. He reached a sitting position before everything started spinning. Max collapsed on the ground and blacked out. The last thing he remembered hearing was Liz helplessly screaming his name.

Part 2

Max’s eyes fluttered open and he slowly tried to sit up. Pain whirled in his head and back and when he brought his hand to his head it came back with on it. What happened? And, why am I on Liz’s balcony? Max closed his eyes as remembered bits and pieces of what happened the night before. Him going to talk to Liz, him seeing Khivar holding her, him being thrown up against the wall he was now leaning on, and him hearing Liz call his name for help just as he started blacking out. “ Oh, God,” he muttered to himself. “Khivar has Liz.”
Max stood up despite the pain and carefully climbed down the ladder. He had to get Liz. He had to help her. But the problem was, was that he couldn’t remember exactly where Khivar said he was taking Liz. Max walked along thinking, not really sure of where his feet were taking him, but when he looked up he saw himself in front of Maria’s house. It was about 5:00 am so Maria wasn’t at work or school. Not caring who he woke up, Max went to Maria’s window and knocked softly. When no one answered after a couple of minutes Max knocked again, this time louder. He heard shuffling inside and saw the curtains open to show that a very angry Maria was standing behind the window.
* * *
Maria opened the curtain to see who had woken her up at 5:00 a’ clock in the morning on a Saturday. When she saw it was Max she became very upset. Why doesn’t he just go to Tess the bitch with all of his problems. Unless e and Tess broke up. Nah, too good to be true. Maria just stood there until she noticed that Max had a big gash on his head and that blood was trickling down the side of his face. She quickly opened her window and watched him climb inside.
“What happened?” Maria asked, concern written all over her face.
“ Khivar’s here. Or he was here. At Liz’s house.”
“What! How did he....why is he....wait....did you say he was at Liz’s house. Why would he go there?” Maria asked surprisingly. Max sat on the bed while she went to the bathroom to get a towel. She handed it to Max and waited for him to tell the whole story.
“ I went over there to talk to here and he was there. He said he didn’t come to kill me, but to come and take Liz. I don’t remember where he said he was taking her but he started to leave and he threw me against the wall, I blacked, and the next thing I know is that I’m on Liz’s balcony covered in blood.”
“ Oh, God. Did he even tell you where he was taking Liz?”
“ Yeah, I just can’t remember what e said.”
“ Well, you best be remembering. I mean, he has Liz. They could be anywhere. He could be doing anything to her.” Maria said tears forming in her eyes.
“ Yeah, well next time you get thrown up against a brick wall you see how easy it is to remember what happened.”
“ Ok, I’m sorry. This is just a lot of news to take in at once.”
“ Call Michael, tell him to get the others and meet us at the pod chamber.”
“ K.” Maria left her bedroom to go get the pone. For the first time since it happened Max really thought about what had taken the place before. Liz was gone. Gone. He didn’t know if he would ever see her again. Sure, he wasn’t her boyfriend anymore and he was now dating Tess, but he still loved her. Nothing would ever change that. Why couldn’t I have attacked him before he attacked me. If I only could have figured out who he was sooner then Liz might still be here and not with some alien killer from Antar. Antar. “Oh my God,: Max whispered.
“What,” Maria said as she walked in the room with the phone. She saw the scared look on Max’s face and tears started pouring from her eyes. “ What is it Max? Where’s Liz?”
Max turned to her and looked her straight in the eye. His eyes were red and were glazed over from unshed tears. “Antar. He took her to Antar.”

Part 3


Michael slammed the phone on hook and walked out the door. Maria had called him she sounded really upset. She told him to call the others and tell them to meet at the pod chamber. What in the hell could be so important that we have to meet at the pod chamber, he had first thought, but he called Isabel, Tess, Kyle, and he tried to call Liz but she didn’t answer.. Man, it’s 5:30 in the morning. What could be important that we need to have a meeting at 5:30 in the morning. He saw Isabel, Kyle, and Tess pull up in front him and he hopped in the backseat.
“ So are we going to Liz’s now?” Tess asked, jealousy coursing through voice.
“ No, she didn’t answer,” Michael answered shortly. He didn’t know why she was jealous. She had Max. She should be happy.
“ What is this all about anyway?” Isabel asked.
“ Yea, I mean a man needs his beauty sleep,” Kyle said.
“ Kyle, get over yourself,” Tess said.
“ I don’t know. Maria called me and she said to call all of you and meet at the pod chamber. It must be important because she sounded really upset.”
“ Why was Max over at Maria’s house anyway? If it was that important why didn’t come to one of us?” Tess asked, looking towards the backseat at Michael.
“ I don’t know. I guess we’ll find out when we get,” Michael said. He starting to get an attitude. Tess was getting on his nerves. He leaned back in the seat, crossed his arms over his chest, and looked out at the desert that surrounded them.
* * * *
Max stood outside the pod chamber watching as a car approached him. Isabel got out of the car and ran up to her brother. “ Oh my God, what happened Max?” Max looked at his sister then at the bloody towel he held in his hand. Tears formed in his eyes as he thought back to the night before. “ It’s a long story,” he said quietly.
“Hey guys.” Max and Isabel turned around to see Maria standing behind them. There were tears running down her cheeks. Michael, who was standing behind Max, went up to her and took him in her arms. Maria silently cried in his arms, burying her face in his chest. Michael turned to look at everyone who was now standing by Max, “ What happened?” Maria looked up at him.
“Khivar,” Max said looking down. “ I went to go talk to Liz....”
“ Wait, why were going to talk to Liz?” Tess asked, anger gleaming in her eyes.
“ Tess, just shut up and let him tell the story. It doesn’t matter why he went to go talk to Liz,” Isabel snapped.
“ When I got there, I saw someone talking to Liz. Liz, she looked scared so I knew that something was wrong. I asked him who he was. He turned around and started talking about earth sayings. That’s kinda when I figured it out. The way he said my name. It all just kind of came together. I think Liz figured it out too. He had her...” Max stopped. Breathe Max. just get through it now. “ He was taking her with him, he said,” Max started again,” He said he was taking her back to Antar with him. He wouldn’t tell me why. He said that he didn’t want to me, or any of us yet.” There you got it. The group thought awhile as the words sunk in.
“ What do you mean not kill us yet. Does that mean he’s coming back?” Isabel asked, her voice shaking. She was surprised he didn’t come fore her. There were lovers in their other lifetime. Why Liz?
“ I don’t know. All I know is that we have to get Liz back.”
“ Get her back! How are we going to do that?” Tess said walking up to Max.
“ I haven’t thought that far ahead yet.” The group fell silent all thinking of some way they could get Liz back. Michael, who had said nothing, looked down at Maria who was still crying in is arms. “ We have to go to Antar. That’s the only way.” Everyone looked at Michael. He wasn’t all that close to Liz but he couldn’t stand Maria being upset like this. “We know how to work the granolith now so we use it and go to Antar.”
“ I’m all up for it,” Tess said.
“ Is there any other choice?’ Isabel asked, tears forming in her own eyes.
“ No,” Max said. “ We have to go to Antar.”
* * * *

“ What’s the point in having me blindfolded when there’s no way I can escape,” Liz asked. She pulled, well, more like being dragged along by Khivar. They have been walking since they left her house. Where Max was. Unless he had woken up already. I hope he’s ok, Liz thought.
“ Good point,” Khivar said as he yanked the blindfold off her face. For the first time she really looked at him. His face wasn’t as soft looking as it was last night. It was probably a coy to get me to trust him. He had a strong jaw and high cheek bones. His face was covered in scars. The most noticeable one was across the bottom of his jaw. It was about five inches long and it was deep. It looked like it was recently put there. “ What are you looking at?” He asked, a smirk forming across his face.
“ Why do want me? I’m not an alien. Why are you taking me to Antar”
“ Well, I guess there’s no harm in telling you. You see, Zan, he was a stubborn bastard. Even you would say so. He had it easy it up. Everything went his way, except when I killed him of course,” Khivar took a moment to laugh at what he did,” Anyway, I had spies all throughout the palace telling me what was going on. Vilondra told me everything she knew. She told me the plans that Rath came up with to defeat me. They were actually good and they probably would have worked but Zan was so pigheaded that he didn’t listen to any ideas that weren’t his.”
“ Max isn’t like that.”
“ No, you’re right there. Max isn’t like that but Zan was. Max had to grow up here, on earth. He was surrounded by people who would want him dead if they knew what he is. He had to learn to trust Michael’s and Isabel’s ideas and opinions to survive. On Antar everyone looked up to him so he wanted all the credit for all the plans.”
“ What does this have to do with you taking me with you?”
“ Everything, actually. See, I’ve been watching all of you for quite sometime now. I know that you Max love each other and would do anything to save the other. So, if I take you back to Antar with me, and he already knows how to work the granolith, then he would follow.”
“ And what if doesn’t follow? What are you going to do then?”
“ He’ll follow. I’m not worried about that.”
“ What exactly are you going to do with when we get there?”
“ I’ll have someone take you to the palace and tell Zan when he gets there that you escaped from the guards and the other slaves.”
“ Slaves? You have slaves up there?”
“ Well, yes, King Zan has slaves. They’re just people that have failed to follow the Antarian rules.”
“ Max wouldn’t do that. He’ll know who I am.”
“ Do you think I’m that stupid!” He yelled, “ I’ve thought of this already! He won’t remember you. Neither will Isabel, Michael, or Tess! Once they get to Antar they will fall into the roles they in before they died. Isabel will become my lover. Rath will become hard and rough. Tess will become a skanky bitch....”
“ She already is that.”
“ Well some people don’t change much.”
“ Why won’t they remember but you will?” Liz was starting to get scared. She was scared before but she had blocked the fear out and the walls she built around were slowly falling down. Max won’t remember me. He won’t remember anything that happened between us. Wait, maybe he’s just saying that to scare me. God, please don’t let what he’s saying be true. Tears started to fall from her face again.
“ Because I never grew up here. I’m strong enough to remember what happens in both worlds. Why are you crying. Don’t worry, you won’t be killed. You’ll just be worked really hard. I am so brilliant.”
“ You’re so self conceited,” Liz muttered to herself. Khivar jerked her around to face him.
“ You know, I could always just kill you here and hide the body. Max would think you’re with me, he would come to Antar, forget all about Max and what happened here on earth, and then I will kill them! Again! And this time I will make sure that they don’t send them back here and I will rule Antar! Now shut up if you want to make it to tomorrow!” Khivar started pulling her along with him. Liz looked behind her and thought, Max. I can’t let him go to Antar. I’d would rather die then see him not love me.
