Authors Note: I HAVE MADE ISABEL AND LIZ FRIENDS. NICOLAS WAS THE FOURTH ALIEN (OR IN THE TV SHOWS CASE, I GUESS IT WOULD HAVE TO BE THE FIFTH. HE IS FROM THE BOOKS.) HE KNOCKED LIZ UNCONSCIOUS, AND THEN MAX HAD TO HEAL HER. HE WAS BAD,CAUSE HE SAW HUMANS AS INSECTS, MUCH LIKE THE 4TH ALIEN ON THE TV SHOW. LIZ AND THE OTHERS TRY TO WARN ISABEL ABOUT NICOLAS BUT SHE STILL GOES OUT WITH THEM. NICOLAS DIES, I just wrote that because I have added him in the story, in the past tense, and it wouldnít make sense if you didnít know what happened.
Max:

Itís been a long time since I have felt anyone following us, so I let my guard down, and decided to act normal for once. Itís our junior year of college, and I have been going out with Liz Parker for about 6 months now. (I wasnít sure if sophomore was the second or third year. Iím using it in the third year sense.)

Ever since I had to take a step back, itís been very rough around Liz. Itís been almost 5 years. It was really hard when she started dating again. I was really jealous. Even more jealous than the time I got drunk and she went out with Mr. Shallow, or correction Chellow.

When I told Liz I didnít remember anything I was lying. I remember bits and pieces. Mostly when I was fooling around with Kyle is all I remember.

// (meaning flashback)

BEGINNING OF SENIOR YEAR OF HIGHSCHOOL

"God, Liz. You look so calm!"

"Thanx Maria. Iím actually sorta nervous."

"I donít know why your nervous. Before the whole Czechoslovakian thing you were fine around Kyle."

(hehehe. Remember from blind date after Max said Ďweíve got to win her back!í and Kyle says Ďwhat Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays,, alternate Saturdays?í that was hilarious! Max and Kyle should get drunk together more often!)

" I know but he was such a jerk after our break- up." Liz said.

"Yea, but remember when he apologized to you last month? And said that he had gotten over the whole thing, and that he at least wanted to be friends? And bought you a dozen roses? If only Michael would do something like that."

Liz thought to herself.

"If you didnít want to go out with him again, then why did you accept when he asked you?" Maria added.

" Iíve been seeing Kyle in a whole new light then when I first started going out with him before the shooting."

"What kind of light? A Grandma Claudia soulmates light, or a maybe just a friends/fling thing?"

" something in-between the two. I mean Kyleís always been sweet and nice to me, and you know he was always civil to you."

"Yeah, but whatís Max gonna do when he finds out about your date tonight?"

"What can he do?" Liz said suddenly angry." Kyle will be out with me so he canít drunk again, and besides he gave up the right to stop me from doing anything when he hurt me. I can go out with whoever I want to, whenever I want to! Max Evans does not rule my life!"

"OK. Just chill. I only meant it in the lateral sense. Meaning whatís Max gonna do to himself?"

"Probably listen to the Counting Crows for a week, and brood. Itís his own fault you know. Heís the one that wanted to take a step back." Liz said suddenly defensive.

"OK, letís just move away from the subject of our Czechoslovakian friend, and move on to a topic ,more Karmatic."

"Youíve been talking to your mother again havenít you?" Liz said.

"Sheís on this Quest for inner peace kick. She even makes me do Yoga with her in the morning, and makes me eat all of this health food stuff, like tofu. Some of itís not that bad." Maria said

"Like what?"

"Like the buckwheat noodles. Those are OK."

"What you donít like the 99.9% lard meals you can get at the Crashdown?"

"Iím surprised Michael, Max, and Isabel arenít as fat as sumo wrestlers with the amount of stuff they eat there."

"I know! I have always wondered that! But I asked Max once and he said that Isabel does Kickboxing."

"Wow! Kickboxing. From now on I am going to be nicer to Isabel, or else sheíll kickbox me all the way to the planet sheís from!"

For some reason that struck both of the girls as terribly funny, and they started laughing till their eyes were streaming.

"Liz! Now look what youíve done! Youíve ruined your makeup!" Maria cried.

"Hey itís not my fault! Your the one who brought on the laugh attack, with that silly remark!"

"OK, letís get you cleaned up!"

THE NEXT DAY AT SCHOOL

Max is walking in the Roswell High Quad, early for school because he has a question to ask the biology teacher.

"Well, well, well, if it isnít Max Evans!" Kyle said in that sort of sing song sarcastic voice he had reserved for Max only.

Max bristled as he heard it.

"Kyle, Iím really in a hurryÖ.."

"Well, arenít you gonna ask me where I was last night?" Kyle said.

"I donít know Kyle, itís your life."

"I was out with your stalkee. Me and Liz had a wonderful time last night. I had been expecting you and her wouldnít last long. We went to the carnival and we talked and I even won her one of those stuffed aliens. We actually get along better now than before we broke up!"

"Got nothing to say, Evans? Thought so. And if I ever catch you stalking or staring at her again, you better be ready for a fight." And with that Kyle walked off, leaving Max, staring after him.

THE NIGHT BEFORE AFTER MARIA LEFT LIZíS

Liz thought to herself after Maria had left Lizís house.

Liz couldnít stop thinking about everything after Max had healed her.

She couldnít stop staring after Max. right before he had left he gave her a tiny smile, a private smile meant only for her. She couldnít stop thinking What did you do to me? how?Öí

She remembered that her brain had felt like it was humming, vibrating at a really low frequency. That it had been hard to think.

And when the paramedic had knelt down in front of Liz, blocking her view of the fleeting Max, she had thought ĎNo!í and she had struggled to stand up. She remembered that she had needed to keep Max in her sight until she couldnít see him anymore, because he had made her feelÖ.. safer.

She had remembered that when she was lying on the floor, she had had the feeling of rushing away from the cafť, from her father and Mariaófrom everything and everyone familiar. And somehow Max had brought her back.

She had remembered when she had talked to Max in the art room the next day, and he had changed that sculpture all around. How she had had a list of Questions to ask him, and when she had asked where he was from, and he pointed up she just assumed he meant Up North. But then he had pointed up North still. He was from beyond the stars.

How the night of the Crash festival, she just couldnít hold it in any longer, and she had to tell Maria. How Maria had run screaming from the Crashdown, in her green alien Costume and green hair, and then they had met Max, Michael, and Isabel in the alleyway, how She had told them about her plan.

She remembered that she didnít think it would work, and then when Max had come up to her on the hill, and said that they should just be friends.

About when her Grandma Claudia had had a stroke. She remembered how he had been the one she had called first. About how she hoped he would come even after she had said in her phone message that it was a mistake to call him and that he shouldnít come. But he did anyway.

She remembered that her Grandma Claudia had said that if it wasnít complicated then you werenít soulmates. she thought.

About how Max had healed her for the second time, after Nicolas had knocked her unconscious. About how she and the others had helped Isabel get over him after Valenti had shot and killed Nicolas. (see authorís note)

About how after her journal had gone missing, she couldnít let Max see it, cause she had wrote down how she felt about him in there.

When she, Max, and Isabel had walked in on Michael and Maria in that hotel. About how she had felt when she and Max were in that car accident. Terrified, scared, and terribly worried. Her heart had wrenched when she saw him lying in the hospital bed, unconscious.

About only she and Max had gone to see River Dog, and that she had to Follow her own path.

About that Heatwave, when Max had saved her from that drunk, and how she had laughed with him, about how they had almost kissed.

About being in jail with Alex and she had to tell him the truth. Alex had been so brave to stand up to Valenti like that. About how she had Alex only a week before had gotten Ms. Topolsky fired because they had discovered her identity. How Alex had given blood to save Max.

She remembered talking with Isabel, and had realized that Isabel was just scared and wanted to fit in. not be different. That she wasnít always Princess Isabel.

When she and Max had broken up. About how she had been scared that the fever would happen to Max like it did to Michael. About being to scared to help Michael.

About going on the camping trip with her father, and then helping Max and Isabel get away, her and Maria pretending to be lost. About how her father had thought she was on drugs. How she and Maria had lied to Max and Michael, saying that they had College dates and that they were meeting them in Alberuque.

About how everyone had gone crazy about aliens at the UFO convention. About how Larry and Jennifer had always been watching her and Max. About how Max stared at her from the safety of his Alien costume when he thought no one was looking.

About the blind date and about when Max was drunk and he had painted that heart on her wall. M.E + L.P. about how he said he didnít remember anything. About how well Maria could sing.

But the one question that kept repeating in her head was, "What would Max think?"

The doorbell rang. Liz went downstairs.

NEXT DAY AT SCHOOL - LUNCHTIME

"Liz! Wait up!" Isabel Evans called.

"Oh, hey Isabel whatís up?" Liz said trying to act casually.

"You know whatís up. Iím just trying to get to you before Max and Michael do. Max is pretty upset, and Michael is very pissed."

"Youíve seen Max? Is he all right? Why would Michael be pissed? Hey, why arenít you mad at me?"

"Max will be fine, but I have no idea why Michael is pissed. Probably something to do with Maria. But Iím not mad at you, Girls have to stick together! You helped me get over Nicolas, and I helped you get over Max. Iím glad to see your dating again, but Kyle Valenti? You can do better, Liz!"

"I know. But he was always nice to you, because your a cheerleader, and heís always been sweet to me. We wonít have to worry about him finding out your secret because letís face it Kyle has the looks but heís not too smart. (I had to make Kyle a little dumber for this or else the plot line wouldnít go)."

"I hear ya on that one." Isabel said with a smile.

"Isabel!" Alex called from across the quad.

"See ya! Alex awaits!" Isabel called over her shoulder as she walked away to go talk to her boyfriend and leader of the Whits.

Then from across the Quad, Liz spotted Hurricane Michael.

Michael walked straight toward her, and sat down on the bench.

"Look, Michael. I know what your gonna say."

"Really?" Michael said with an interesting pique.

"Your gonna say that I really hurt Maxís feelings, and I shouldnít have gone out with Kyle, because heís Valentiís son." Liz stared at him, looking for confirmation.

"Actually, No." Michael said. His face not giving away anything.

"You were gonna say that you need help to get back together with Maria?" Liz said.

"Nope. Actually I was gonna ask youÖÖÖÖÖ"

TBC. And no I have no plans for there to be a L/M (Liz Michael) or a L/A (Liz Alex) or a M/M (Maria Max) or A/m (Alex Maria) or a M/I (Michael Isabel.) Your just gonna have to wait and see! I need Feedback so I can know if I should continue this fic!
