"What are we doing?" I aske michael as we stood out in the middle of the desert. He drove me all the way out here and is telling me nothing. He leaned against my car and looked up into the beautiful night sky.
" I thought this would be the best place to talk." he said. I sighed and leaned against the car next to him. We have or had some kind of connection and I think he wants to see if he can get that connection back again.
" I think you want to do more then talk. You want to see if you can bring the connection back" I said.
" thats part of it" he said. I think he has more to say but he isnt sure how to say it. Lately we really have been on the best of terms. Things have been so different between us since the group has been dismantled. I looked up into the night sky watching the stars twinkle as silence fell between us. Finally michael turned to me and broke the silence between us.
" I miss you" he said softly. He reached over and touched my cheek and I suddenly felt and a wave of warmth go threw my body. He leaned in and softly brushed his lips across mine He stopped and his hovered over mine for a moment. It was like he was debating with himself he wanted to continue.
" Kiss me" I whispered on his lips. He leaned in and kissed me and I felt like the world was falling beneath me. He pulled me closer and our bodies met. Suddenly I was being pulled into time and space and everything was morphing around me and changing. watching him swim across the pool is not what I am suppose to be doing right now. What I am suppose to be doing is getting his afternoon meal ready. Of course he requested me personally to bring it to him after several times I have requested to have my duties changed.
" Want to take a swim?" He asked as she splashed around in the pool.
" I have work to do your meal is ready" I said as I placed everything around the table he asked for.
" Im not hungry" he said. Of course. I dropped everything and decided im not going to deal with this. I started to walk away but of course he stopped me.
" I know Im being a complete jerk but your the only servant that can handle me. Come take a break and swim with me. you know servants are allowed at least one break" he said with a smile. what is he doing?
"no" I said as I walked away. The next thing I knew Im being grabbed and thrown into the pool. I came back up for air splashing around frantically does he not realize I dont swim that well? I frantically Im trying to not to panic, he grabs and holds me tightly to his body.
"you could of told me you dont swim that well" he said. I want to hit him right now but all i could do was look into his eyes and fall blissfully into them. I wrapped my arms around his neck for safety. He never once took his eyes off me my heart is racing. Why is it racing like this?
" I can feel your heart racing against mine" he said softly. he leaned in and brushed his lips across mine. Just innocent brush with his lips and he looked at me as if he was asking for permission. I found myself saying yes and leaned in again and softly kissed me. I was suprised and shocked. He smiled and leaned his forehead against mine.
" I have been wanting to do that for a while" He said softly. I didnt know what to say or do, the second in command just kissed me.
"I...think I better Get back to my duties" I said.
Suddenly I was pulled back and michael was pulling at the hem of my shirt. I Pulled away and stepped back not sure as to what was happening. He looked me in the eyes and I knew he saw what I just saw.
" We have to control this some how" I said trying to control my breathing.
" I dont know what this all means or whats going on" He said as he leaned back on the car. All I know is I feel even more connected to michael then ever. Could have lived a past life as an Alien on his home planet? Was this what Serena was meaning by When she said talk to him? My mind is scrambling with questions and no answers.
" Maybe if serena can translate the Book It will tell us something" Michael looked at me curiously. I now realiz he knows nothing about the book or serena translating it.
" was that something you were going to tell me before we...you know.." he said. He is angry with me now. Everything was going so good until now.
" I have to get the group back together we are more powerful together" I said.
"now your withholding information from me?" he said getting upset with me. I didnt want ti fight with him not after what I just visioned and felt with him. I turned started to head to the passengers side of the car.
" Take me to max's" I said. He got in the car and we sat in silence for a moment.
"Dam it michael take to me max's place" I said. I dont want to fight with him.
" No" he said softly. he wants to fight now?
" I really dont want to fight with you" I said. I looked down and saw something red on my hand. I held my hand up and a glowing red symbol appeared on it. Michael took my hand and examined it and it suddenly disappeared.
" Drive" I said as he started the car and speed off down the highway.
Serena is exhausted from trying to translate the book she curled up on the sofa and Fell asleep. Liz curled up in my bed and went fast asleep and here I am not able to sleep a wink. I have so much weighing on myself right now I dont know how I am holding on. I sat and watched Liz sleep for the longest time hoping and praying that she doesnt just up and leave me again. Without her I am incomplete, its like I have this gaping hole I cant feel and its an empty void that only she can fill.
I reached over and brushed her hair away from her face. I know we can fight whatever is going to come our way. Im not going to let nothing or no one take away what I have with Liz. I will fight for my future and for her future.
"max" She whispered softly.
"Go back to sleep" i said softly. I climbed into the bed next to her and she curled up next to me and went back to sleep. Having her next to me is all I need to make myself complete. I closed my eyes and I suddenly found myself asleep and Dreams or started to invade my mind. Bodies everywhere, its a blood bath and there was no way to stop it. How was I suppose to stop this? I failed as a leader, a king, I failed and Ive lost everything. I look down and I see my queens Lifeless body laying on the ground. I fell to my knees in front of her no, she cant be gone. She cant be, I held her lifeless body in my arms. I heard a soft cry from behind me I turned around and saw My son standing there watching.
" Mommy" he cried. He started to run toward me But I stopped him. He cant see his mommy like this. I scooped him up and carried him back to the headquarters. All he did was fight me to try to go back to his mother. All I could do was hold him tight and never let him go.
I entered the head quarters and Michael looked up and saw me and he knew. All I could do was fall to my knees with my son in my arms.
"No!" I woke I screaming and scrambling in the bed gasping for breath. I reached over to the other side of the bed and it was empty. I put my head between my legs and tried to breath. Was that a dream or some kind flash from my past life? The image of Liz laying on that cold ground dead haunts me now. I took slow deep breaths trying to block out the images from the so called dreams.
We pulled up in front of max's place And i quickly jumped out I dont really care what time it is I need answers. Michael hestiated following me up to the door he stood back leaning against my car watching me pound on the front door. Liz came to the door and I pushed my way in. When I walked in I heard screaming coming from the bedroom Liz rushed to the room and I followed her.
We found max sitting on the bed with his head between his legs gasping for breath.
"max?" Liz said as she sat down next to him Liz tried to reach over and touch him and he lashed out furiously. Liz tried to push him down to keep him calm but it made him lash out more. Michael came into the room and rushed over to the bed and grabbed Liz and pulled her away from the bed.
"Maxwell!" Michael yelled as he tried to calm max down.
" Michael?" Max looked at him curiously and pushed off himself and sat up in the bed.
" What the hell just happen?" I asked. Liz looked scared out of her mind. Serena rushed into the room she went over to the bed and seemed to be examining max.
" Night terrors" she said.
" Night terrors?" I asked serena as we sat in the living room trying to process everything.
" something traumatic that happen to him is causing him to have night terrors" something traumatic? Could it because liz left and came back? Or is it something else? Maybe that is why he has been lashing out in anger and hurting everyone he loves? Or maybe its...
" The flashes" I blurted out. Serena looked at me curiously.
"Are you and michael having flashes?" She asked. I looked over at michael and then back at Serena. I lifted up my hand and showed her the glowing mark.
" We have alot to talk about" she said with a smile as she glanced at me then at michael. Oh god.
" Im not worried about that. Im worried about max" Michael said. Serena sighed.
" He is probably having dreams, or flashes of his past life. What ever happen in his past life stayed dormant for so long and Now its been brought back" Serena said as open the book and started flipping threw it.
" How do we stop it?" Michael asked.
" We dont" Serena replied.
" Then what do we do?" I asked her. Serena closed the book and looked up at me and michael.
" liz is the only one who can help him right now. The dreams are scaring him and he needs her to make himself complete. Without her it scares him, and not sleeping doesnt help matters either" She said.
" Im going to go check on Liz" I said. I found liz in the bedroom with max. He was sitting on the edge of the bed sobbing in her shoulder. Liz just held him tightly looking helpless as she tried to sooth him. I Decided not to bother them and I stepped out of the room and closed the door.
" hey" Michael said as he leaned against the wall watching me.
"They need some privacy. I need sleep" I said.
"you want me to take you home?" he asked. Before I could answer serena stepped in between us.
" We really have to talk" She said. My head is spinning and I am tired and talking right now wont get me anywhere.
" I need sleep" I said.
" Get some rest we will talk soon. I will keep an eye on max and I need to update Liz on some things" She said. Good. Michael drove me home and we were silent all the way there. He pulled up in front of my place and I jumped out and headed up to my front door.
" I really dont like whats going on with max. what if he hurts Liz like he hurt isabel" Michael said. I hate thought of max hurting liz but he loves her and I dont think he could ever hurt her. They need time to work through this and we all need time to figure out whats really going on.
" He wont hurt her" I said.
" All this is crazy to me and I feel like I shouldnt leave you alone" Michael said. What? Im not in danger? And I dont need a bodyguard, but if it makes him feel better he can stay.
" Im not in danger but if it makes you feel any better you can stay" I said letting him in. Am I going to regret this? I dont know. But in a way I do miss him and I wish things were different between us and they were for just a moment.
