|Michaelís world was a sea of red. For a brief moment he thought the redness
was blood dripping into his eyes from the cuts on his face. As the fog in
his mind lifted he could clearly see that the red was coming from a point
out in front of him, Mariaís chest.
When Alex had grabbed Isabel away from the gunfire, the force field put up by the sisters, which was already weakened by their waning strength, collapsed. Maria didnít have a chance. The solitary gunshot that Michael had heard had struck her squarely in the chest, vaulting her backwards into him.
Michael was sitting on the floor of the van, his back against the seat behind the driver, his legs stretched out in front of him. Maria was lying on the floor beside him, her head cradled in his lap. Max sat behind him, Isabel on the floor to his left, and Alex on the seat behind her.
Liz knelt beside Maria on the floor, tears streaming down her cheeks. She felt for a pulse and then placed her hands directly over Mariaís wound.
Michael heard himself yelling for her to stop it. Stop hurting Maria, but no sound crossed his lips.
Beneath Lizís hands a small glow began to spread out across Mariaís chest. For a few seconds the van was lit up but then the light faded again.
A small cry escaped from Lizís lips as she lost her connection with Maria. At the sound, Isabel clumsily shifted her body closer to her sisterís and reached out to lay her hands over Lizís. The strength of the glowing light increased, but not by much. Max, figuring that whatever they were doing they were stronger together, called for Tess who was up front with Kyle. Earlier Tess had given all of her strength to her sisters so they could form the force field. It was slowly coming back but when she saw Liz and Isabel leaning over Maria she felt a new surge of power.
She hurried to Isabelís side and added her hands to theirs. Now the light grew with a fierce intensity. Michael, Max, and Alex were blinded by it but felt unable to tear their eyes away from the scene unfolding in front of them.
Michael thought his heart would stop when Maria opened her eyes and gasped for air. First Isabel, then Tess and Liz, collapsed on the floor of the van as the connection was broken and Maria was healed.
Maria sat up and gathered the three of them in an embrace as all four Parker sisters wept.
