|That evening the six teenagers were extremely quiet all trying to comprehend
what they had found out during their visit with DR Turner. "I think we can
all safely agree the other aliens do exist." Max finally said trying to
break the silence, but every one else just nodded their agreement. Before
the silence got bearable Max tried once again. "I think it would be a good
idea that we give blood tomorrow to be placed in reserve for when the time
comes that it is needed and the doctor can freeze it for storage."|
Michael being tired of the silence finally began talking. "I agree with Max. I'll give as often as possible to help when the time comes."
"Yeah, me too." Isabelle added. Tess also agreed with the decision that Max had made.
"Good I'll tell the doctor tomorrow." Max concurred.
"What about the baby situation Max, what he said makes sense doesn't it?" Michael knew every one was thinking about it and he also knew he would have to be the first one to bring it up.
"I think that is a decision each of us will have to make on their own. Having a child is a personal choice Michael. The reasons are there, but it's the same thing about our destinies." Max turned to look directly at Liz as he finished his thought. "A parent can tell you who they expect you to be with, but in the end your destiny is your choice." Tess let out a sigh when she heard Max's words and knew they were directed toward Liz.
Liz who had been watching Max suddenly couldn't take her eyes off of the floor as he spoke of his destiny. "But, sometimes our choice is taken from us for the greater good." She spoke just barely above a whisper.
Max slowly approached Liz so he stood almost directly in front of her. "The greater good is important, but an individuals strengths comes from inside of them. From their heart and when it is taken away it becomes that individuals greatest weakness instead of it's greatest strengths."
Liz slowly lifted her eyes to meet Max's loving eyes that were full of love for her. Then the realization that the two of them were the center of attention to all the others in the room she quickly regained her composure. "Max, I need to speak to you in private." She grabbed his hand and pulled him toward her bedroom door. As soon as she shut the bedroom door Max motioned that they were probably being watched and their conversation listened to.
He knew Liz wanted to say something, but didn't know where to begin so Max spoke first. "Liz Parker, you can either be my greatest strength or my greatness weakness. Now what kind of leader would I be if I would allow the strength to be lost and replaced with the weakness?"
"Your greatest strength UH?"
"Or my greatest weakness!"
"God you are impossible you know that. Do you realize almost all last night and today all I could think about was if it would be possible to have your child and we aren't really together any more. Why do I have to love you so much Max Evans it's just not fair?" Her voice trying to sound angry as she pulled away from him and sat with a thud on the bed putting her hands to her face as she finished her ranting.
Max knew she wasn't really angry, she was simple has frustrated as he was. Her words kept repeating in his mind 'was it possible to have your child,' their child. Max sat down next to Liz, entwined his hand with hers. "Liz I don't know if it is even possible for us to conceive a child together, but the one thing I do know for sure. The only person I could ever have a child with would be you."
"You could have a child with Tess easily." As she said the words she wished she could take them back when she saw the hurt look that came over his face. So she decided to try to lighten the mood a little and joked. "Max I guess the other aliens wouldn't be willing to put everything on hold until after we finished say high school, college, a career or even wait to let us have a few good years of marriage before we had to start that future family that would eventually kill them all dead..UH What do you think?"
Max couldn't help but laugh. "I know how you like to make your plans. So with all your planning did you think of that honeymoon?" Liz threw him a look that said it all. Then Max's serious side took over once again. "You know I could never be with Tess like that. I am in love with you and only you. But for right now you know I could never ask you to do this?"
Just as serious Liz answered him back. "You wouldn't be asking me to do anything I didn't want to do Max."
"Liz are you saying what I think you are saying?"
"I'm saying Max we should at least find out if it would be possible for us to have a child before we make any further decisions."
In the living area Tess was fuming. She had heard what Max had said to Liz prior to her pulling him into her bedroom. "I would diffidently call Liz Max's greatest weakness, but how could he even consider her his greatest strength. Please....she's only human."
Michael and Isabelle both turned toward Tess and rolled their eyes. It was Kyle that had replied to her statement. "Only human. I know you have only been around for a short time, but even you can't deny their connection. Believe me I know."
"Do you think those two would consider trying to conceive a baby at their age?" Isabelle asked the question the others in the room were thinking.
I think if any one would be willing to do this for us, it would diffidently be Liz for Max. I mean Alex probably wouldn't have a problem helping you out Isabelle, but couldn't you just hear Maria's comments now "I don't think so spaceboy." Michael replied out loud.
Isabelle approached Michael and put her hand on his shoulder. "Michael, you know how Maria feels about you. Although I'm really glad the doctor decided to leave Alex and Maria out of this right now. A part of me wants Alex here with me. How selfish does that make me?"
"I know what you mean. When this first started I was really glad they didn't bring either of them into this, but as we find out more and more about why we're here I feel the same way."
"Well, at least with them not here, it looks like you guys will at least get to follow your destiny unlike some of us." Tess sneered.
"Shut up Tess. I am so tired of hearing you whine about our stupid destinies. I mean come on, do you really love my brother? You don't even know him that well."
As Isabelle said the words Tess couldn't help but look in Kyle's direction and wonder if she really did love Max or was it that she had just been told about her destiny to be with him so often by Nasedo that her mind convinced her she did love him not her heart. "Does it matter? We all know this stupid idea of alien/human cross breeding will not work. This is what that book and your mother was trying to tell us. The four of us were reborn on earth for a reason and that was procreate with each other." With that Tess ran into her bedroom and slammed the door shut.
"She might be right Isabelle. I can't help but think of those dreams we had." Michael stated quietly after Tess had left the room.
"Well, I'm not having a baby at seventeen Michael so it doesn't matter one way or another." She replied honestly.
Kyle who had been quiet during most of the evening finally found his voice. "What I don't understand is why they brought me here instead of Alex?"
"Don't you get it. They want a full rounded experiment. That means human male with alien female. Alien male with human female plus alien male and alien female. They want to see what the differences would create or not create." Michael spoke finally saying what they all had thought since they had been told about the breeding experiment.
"I understand that part. But why did they choose Liz and me instead of Maria and Alex?"
"Because if they had observed us at all they would have to know about Max and Liz's connection. Which left Tess out of the alien/alien match up so here you are? Do you understand now." Isabelle couldn't help but be a little snooty as she made her reply to him. Men could be so dense sometimes she thought to herself. Isabelle wanted to go to bed, but just couldn't bring herself to sleep in the same room as Tess so she asked if they would mind if she took the other bedroom. Both Michael and Kyle agreed it would be okay. She thanked them, said good night and then went into the last bedroom.
"Night Isabelle." Michael replied and then turned his attention to Kyle. "You better get some sleep too. I'll take the night watch again."
"No way man. You took it last night. I'll take the first shift anyway. I don't think I could go to sleep right now if you paid me. I'll wake you if I get tired though deal."
"Deal. And Kyle just remember they said they wouldn't hurt any of us. You are expandable in their eyes so don't try to be a hero, call if you need me."
Kyle knew what Michael was trying to say and nodded to him that he understood. He sat down on the couch once again lost in his own thoughts.
Max leaned over like he was going to kiss her and whispered softly into her ear. "I have my powers back."
Liz looked into Max's eyes and knew he was telling her the truth. So she leaned back into him kissing him gently on his neck traveling up to his ear to whisper back. "So when do we leave?"
Now it was Max's turn to kiss her trailing his way from her neck back to her ear again. "As soon as we have found out everything we can, we'll leave. Sooner if they try anything."
Liz weave her hands around the nap of his neck going back to his ear. "Do you think Isabelle and Michael have gotten theirs back too?"
Still pretending the make out session for any one that was watching (not that Max wasn't enjoying this). He ran his fingers through her hair, kissed her gently on the mouth and then went back to her ear. "I don't think so, but I can't very well get this close to them to ask. I know their watching us and more then likely listening."
Caressing Max's face she kissed him back and hugged him tightly going back to his ear. "I think your right."
Then Max pulled back and spoke out loud. "I don't want to leave you alone at night. I think it would be best if one of us stay with you and Kyle all the time don't you?"
"Would you mind staying with me or would you prefer to send Isabelle in with me?
"I would prefer to stay myself if that would be okay with you?"
"Max...I...Yes, please stay." She confirmed what he so wanted to hear. Then a smile came to her face as she said. "At least we got a change of clothes today. Max, I think we should at least find out if it would be possible for me to conceive your child before, you know."
Max could tell exactly what she meant. Any one who was listening probably thought she meant before they had sex. He knew she meant before they escaped. But, just the thought of Liz being pregnant with his child was causing havoc beyond his wildest dreams on his body. "Your safety is the most important thing to me. I can't let you do anything that might be dangerous." He stated trying to keep his tone even.
"I'll be fine as long as your with me." She spoke with confidence in your voice and Max was once again amazed at her strength and courage.
"No matter what happens we are in this together. I'll be with you through everything. What do you say we get some sleep now, I got a feeling tomorrow is going to be another long day?" To himself he thought about what a long night it was going to be for him lying next to Liz all night. Even though their make out session earlier was a game to enable them to communicate closely it still had its effect on his body.
Liz went into the bathroom to change into the night shirt she had been given earlier by one of the lab techs. When she came out Max was waiting for her. One look at her and he knew he was about to loose any control he had left. He quickly mumbled under his breathe something about a shower and practically ran into the bathroom. Liz couldn't help but giggle at Max's hasty escape into the bathroom for what she was sure was a cold shower. If the truth be known she was having just as much trouble controlling her own wants when it came to Max.
When Max came out of the bathroom in the sweat pants he had been given he saw Liz laying on the bed. All the relief the cold shower had given him floated away as soon as he laid eyes upon Liz. He approached her slowly trying to keep his control under wraps. When he laid down next to her she immediately snuggled into his arms. "Liz.." That was all he got out of his mouth before she reached up and pulled his head down to meet hers and placed a soft kiss on his lips. He returned her kiss with hunger and passion. Their bodies reacted to the kiss by entangling into each other. Their hands begun to roam over each others bodies.
Max caressed Liz's stomach where he had healed her and then continued his journey up to slowly rub the palm of his hand over her breast causing Liz to let out a moan and arch into his hand. The fire that burned inside of them was now controlling their actions. After exploring her breast Max found his hand traveling down her body. Over her hip and on ward to her upper thigh. As he continued his journey to where he so badly needed to explore he felt her hand brush lightly over his arousal. His erection stiffened more then he thought possible and he knew they would have to stop now or there would be no stopping them. He reached over for her hand that was upon his arousal. "Liz...we have...we have to stop." His voice was hoarse with emotion and it took every ounce of control he had to pull away from her and collect his thoughts.
"I'm sorry I should never have lost control like. But when your so close it's hard not to." He finally confessed.
"Max don't apologize it wasn't just you that lost control here. I want to be with you Max. Your the only one I would ever want to be with."
"I want you more then you could ever imagine Liz, but I won't take any chances until we know for sure you'll be okay when we do make love."
"Your right, we'll both know when it's the right time and when we do make love it will be for the right reasons."
"I love you Liz Parker, I always have. I always will."
"And I love you Max Evans. Now I guess we just have to figure out how either of us are going to get any sleep. I mean I don't think I could fall asleep without you holding me, but on the other hand how am I going to go to sleep with you holding me?"
Max nodded and Liz laid her head upon his chest. Hearing the beating of his heart soothed her into a deep pleasant sleep. Max's mind was racing so much he didn't think he would be able to sleep either, but soon he found himself listening to the small breathes coming from Liz. He was enchanted with her smell all around him, her body snuggled closely to his and the sound of her small breathes relaxed his mind and before Max Evans knew how it happened he was fast asleep content holding onto the beautiful creature that laid next to him. A slight smile tugged on both of their mouths as their dreams continued where the reality had halted their earlier encounter.
