That was the only thought in Liz Parker's mind as she raced through the dark night.


The only thing she knew was that they were after her. And once they caught her, she would never see her parents again.

And they were getting closer.

"MAX!" she screamed into the night, panting. "MARIA! KYLE! MOM! DAD! ANYBODY!"

No answer, she continued the run, pushing aside the tree branches as she moved.

That was when she realized she was in the middle of Frasier Woods. Why was she there? Wouldn't she be safer at home.

No. Home wasn't safe anymore, no place was.

Know that they know.

Know what? she thought to herself. What had she done that would make them come after her. Who were they?

"SOMEONE HELP ME!" she screamed again.

Then, she stopped dead in her tracks. A bright blue light started to surround her, and then she looked down.

There, on the ground was the symbol. The same one they found there 2 years ago.the one that disappears.

"What in god's name is happening?" she asked herself.

"Don't be afraid Liz" a voice called out to her.

She quickly turned around, looking for the person who was talking.but there was no one there.

"Hello?" she asked the night. "Who's there?"

"It's ok, Liz" the voice called again. "You're one of us now."

"Who are you?" she called out.

"They'll hurt you," the voice continued. "Come with us and you'll be safe."

"Max?" she asked. "Is that."

"Max is gone"

A look of terror crept over her face.

"I don't believe you" she responded.

Then, she heard rustling in the bushes behind her.

.and then she heard the gunshots.


Liz sat up in bed like a shot, screaming at the top of her lungs.

"Liz?" her mother said, opening the door. "Are you all right?"

Liz was breathing heavily as her mother came over and hugged her.

"I'm.uh.I'm fine, mom" she lied. "I just had a bad dream."

Liz smiled at Mrs. Parker, reassuring her.

"Ok," her she gave it. "Just try to relax. It's your first day as a high school senior today, and I want my little girl to not be on edge".

"I promise" Liz told her, and climbed out of bed.

After Mrs. Parker left the room, Liz noticed a faint glow coming from her desk drawer.the same type of glow from her dream.

Quickly, the opened it, and pulled out the necklace Max gave her before summer started. Once she picked it up, it stopped glowing.

"Liz?" her mother called from downstairs.

"Coming mom," she yelled back.

My name is Liz Parker.and this is the first day of the rest of my life.

*********************** OPENING CREDITS BEGIN ***********************

Oh, I am what I am
I do what I want...
But I.
.can't hide.

I won't go.
I won't sleep.
I can't breathe.
.until you're resting here with me

I won't leave
I can't hide.
I cannot be...
Until you're resting here.

I won't go.
I won't sleep.
I can't breathe...
...until you're resting here with me.
I won't leave...
I can't hide...
I cannot be.
Until you're resting here with me.
