It was graduation. Finally.

Liz rose as the principle called for the valedictorian to come up. She patted Max’s hand after passing his seat. He then realized she passed him a note. He would open later. Now, now he had to listen her speech.

The pathway is broken
And the signs are unclear
And I don't know the reason why you brought me here
But just because you love me the way that you do
I'm gonna walk through the valley
If you want me to

“I’ve realized high school wasn’t just something you had to do. You do it to get into college.” Duh’s, and of course’s rang out. “But, high school is also more than that. It’s the stepping stone to one of the biggest phases in your life. You’ll be growing up and going off to college, maybe without some friends.“ She gave Maria and Michael glances. “And you can’t stay here forever in this school. Not wanting to change.” She raised her hands to demonstrate. “But you can leave with the wonderful memories. Memories of your life spent here and the friends you’ve made.” She looked to her left, a big portrait of Alex Whitman, who died last year due to a car crash. But the 5 knew better. “And you’ll still keep up with your friends,” She sniffled a little. “Even though they are miles far from you..”

'Cause I'm not who I was
When I took my first step
And I'm clinging to the promise you're not through with me yet
So if all of these trials bring me closer to you
Then I will go through the fire
If you want me to “And maybe you’re thinking, I can’t make it on my own. It hurts to leave them. I should not have loved them.” She turned her stare to Max. It may not be the way I would have chosen
When you lead me through a world that's not my home
But you never said it would be easy
You only said I'll never go alone
He read her note as she continued. (Max’s voice and Liz’s in sync.) “However, a life without love, is a life not lived at all. ”

Max looked back up. “Now, I present you, the Roswell Class of 2002!!!!!” She stepped back and gestured her hand backwards.

The class stood, moved their tassels and clapped. Yeah’s and yippee’s were heard soon after. Liz moved her tassel too, but then she threw it up in the air and caught it. Her action was soon followed by many. Isabel ran up to the stage and kissed Max on the cheek. Gave a hug to Liz, Maria and Michael, and then went off with Jesse to follow the crowd awaiting the graduates. So when the whole world turns against me
And I'm all by myself
And I can't hear you answer my cries for help
I'll remember the suffering your love put you through
And I will go through the valley
If you want me to Max stood still, cap and diploma in one hand and note in the other. “Max?” A voice from in front of him snapped him out of his trance. “Liz?” He turned, and before he realized, he was kissing her. After awhile they took a breather. “Max? What does this mean?” He took her face in his hand and gave her that melting stare. “It means..” Liz looked at him with anticipation. “It means.. Screw Destiny……..” The End =)
