Summary: Kyle POV at some point past S2, telling you the way it happened…(after TEOTW things changed.
From Part 7B:
“Sure, Kyle. It’s getting late you’d better go.”
I moved towards the window. Out of pure desire at that moment I grabbed her arm and pulled her in close. I wrapped my arms around her and kissed her soundly, fully on the mouth. I just couldn’t help it. I wanted to kiss her again and again. Just as I was about to release her, my world came apart. She came up on tiptoes, wrapped her arms around my neck and ran her tongue around my ear. She planted wet, open mouth kisses along my jaw and when she reached my mouth. Well she kissed me in a way I’ve never been kissed before. She rocked my world all right.
Lets just say it was much, much later when I left that balcony to go home…
To say the next morning at school was awkward would be an understatement. In my mind I knew exactly what I wanted to happen now. I wanted Liz and me to be together; and I wanted to get the hell out of Roswell.
Liz on the other hand, avoided me. I tried to catch her at her locker before first period. She was running down the hall just as the bell rang. I missed her.
I jumped up and rushed out of my 4th period class to try to catch her at lunch. No such luck, she wasn’t in the lunch line and nowhere to be found in the quad.
I was absolutely certain I’d see her in sixth period because we had British Lit together. She waited until just after the warning bell to come in. She sat in the very back of the room, totally ignoring the seat I’d saved for her. At this point I was ready to pull my hair out, or simply drag her out of class and tell the teacher it was very important for me to talk with Liz. I’d make up whatever excuse necessary.
I did manage to restrain myself. I was going crazy trying to figure out why she was avoiding me, a little awkwardness yeah, I expected that. I certainly didn’t imagine that she’d spend the day ignoring me.
I finally decided to take the hint and try to talk to her later at the Crashdown. As I headed down the hallway to my last period study hall, just as I passed the eraser room door, it opened. A pair of hands grabbed me and pulled me inside.
Before I even had time to look and see who had so unceremoniously dragged me into the Eraser Room, she kissed me. The room was small and dark…dark enough that because my eyes hadn’t yet adjusted to the light I couldn’t see my attacker. Attack me she did. The kiss was wild and ferocious. She was good too. Whoever this little vixen was, she knew exactly what she was doing. My arms went around her waist and drew her close. Her arms were around my neck, her hands in my hair. Our tongues dueled and battled for supremacy.
I began to think my lungs were going to burst from lack of air. As I was about to break the kiss, she moaned “Kyle.” I knew for sure then. I’d had a pretty good idea all along who had dragged me in here. Because with a night full of her kisses so fresh in my mind. It was rather hard to forget a girl like that.
“Kyle, why do I feel this way?” Liz asked. “I can’t get you off my mind. I see you everywhere. I dreamed of you and your kisses. I’m supposed to still be in love with Max. I mean it was just a month ago and we were so close to getting back together.”
“Baby, I’m all about making you forget,” I couldn’t help myself here. My ego was rapidly nearing the size of the Grand Canyon.
I mean what guy doesn’t want to hear a girl talk that way about him. I am definitely NOT the exception. I feel the same way about her, and that’s what made it all worthwhile.
So would you like to know how we spent the rest of the study period? You do.
We studied…each other. I became intimately reacquainted with Liz Parker’s most sensitive spots. I must say she has quite a few. There is this one, right behind her ear. She gets this chill when I kiss her there and well…
Same day at school – Liz POV:
I can’t believe Kyle and I spent last night on my balcony making out! Wait until Maria hears this. She’ll never let me live it down.
As I stuff my coat in my locker, I check my watch. I’m going to be late to class if I don’t hurry. As I head for class, I see Kyle headed my way. Got to hurry, can’t talk now.
As I sat in History, Trig, and Biology. I hear “Class”…. after that my brain turned to mush and I see Kyle, smell Kyle, remember kissing Kyle. KYLE is on the brain.
*At Lunch – in a far corner of the cafeteria*
“Girl, what is up with you? You’ve been zoned out all morning,” Maria asked.
I just kind of smiled and nodded.
“Is it something Czechoslovakian? Something Spaceboy intentionally neglected to tell me? If Michael is excluding me again, I’m going to kill him.”
“Calm down Maria. It has nothing to do with Max or Czech stuff.”
“Then what is it? Because the last time I remember seeing you so starry-eyed was the night Max first kissed you. That’s it isn’t it? YOU AND MAX ARE BACK TOGETHER,” Maria squealed.
“NO, Maria. Calm down okay, and I’ll tell you what’s going on,” I said.
“Okay, spill,” she said.
“Well you know Kyle and I have been spending a lot of time together right?”
“Yeah, what’s with all of that anyway?” Maria asked, looking slightly confused.
“If you’d hold on for a minute I’ll tell you,” I said.
“Kyle has been great with the whole Future Max thing, and with the being ‘changed.”
“Honestly we’ve been experimenting to see what kinds of powers we’ve got. You’ve got to swear Maria, not to tell Michael. Nobody needs to know right now. Anyway, he came over last night. I wanted to see if I could get flashes from him too, so I had him kiss me. One kiss led to another, we ended up making out and it was really late when he went home.”
“The thing is today, I can’t get him out of my mind. He’s so sweet and has been great about everything.”
By this time Maria’s mouth was hanging open and her eyes were huge. “You did WHAT? I can’t believe you made out with Kyle Valenti!” She squealed.
“Can you be a little louder Maria? I think the whole lunch room heard you,” I said.
“OH MY GOSH, check it out. Kyle is SO looking for you. Over there by the doors, see he’s looking for you,” Maria squealed.
“Quick I’ve got to hide,” I said as I slouched down against the wall. “I don’t want to talk to him right now, this is too confusing.”
The conversation then turned to why I was avoiding Kyle. It was just too awkward to talk to him right now. I mean, wasn’t I supposed to still be in love with Max? It had only been a month since I’d supposedly slept with Kyle. You didn’t get over heartbreak that fast right?
Kyle and I were walking out to the Mustang after school, he was going to give me a lift home. Just as we reached the car, we saw Max and Tess walking hand in hand towards the Jeep. Max leaned in and said something to Tess. She frowned and then nodded. They walked over to where we stood.
“Kyle, can you give me a lift home?” Tess asked.
“I guess,” Kyle said, definitely not thrilled at the prospect.
“Liz can I talk to you? I can give you a lift to the Crashdown,” Max asked.
I looked at Kyle and he nodded ever so slightly, as if to say, “Go ahead but I’ll be right behind you.”
As I climbed into the Jeep, I looked wistfully at Kyle and Tess as they got into the Mustang.
As we drove towards the Crash, Max said, “Liz what was the comment that Maria made at lunch all about?”
“What comment?” I asked, hoping that he wouldn’t ask what I was afraid he would.
“The one about you making out with Kyle?”
“What does it matter Max? You and Tess are together now,” I said, my voice laced with sarcasm.
“Only because you pushed me towards her,” he said quietly. I could see the hurt and pain in his eyes. Honestly it didn’t touch me the way it once had. I had changed the future, and it had changed me.
“Max, it’s over between us.” As he pulled up to the Crashdown I had the most liberated feeling. I could breathe again. Maybe there was life without Max Evans…
