With shaking hands Maria tried to open the door to the Crashdown, but her hands were shaking so badly that it was impossible. What she was seeing could not be true. There was no way that Isabel was attacking Liz, but it was happening right in front of her eyes. She tried again to open the door, but once again with no luck. Her Best Friend was in trouble and she had to help her. She once again looked through the glass and what she saw made her blood run cold. "Michael, No" she whispered as she saw Michael grab Liz by the shoulders and push her back. Finally she got the door opened and ran inside. But Liz was nowhere to be seen.
"What the hell is going on here?" she screams as she runs up to Michael.
"Nothing that concerns you." he growls
"Nothing that concerns me. I find you both attacking Liz, while the Alien slut just sits here watching. Liz is my Best Friend and that makes it my concern. Now as I said before, what the hell is going on here?"
Michael remains silent and tries to walk away. Maria sees this and grabs his arm. "Oh no, Spaceboy you are not running away from me this time. Spill your guts or I will personally kick all of your Alien asses."
Isabel was the first to speak. "She cheated on Max with Kyle Valenti."
"Oh really" she screams now looking at Isabel. "So you thought that you would come down here and make her pay for her little indiscretion, right?"
Michael grabs Maria and spins her around "Your damn right. We trusted her, Max trusted her and look where it got us. I knew that we should have never trusted any Humans, they are." the next thing he knew he was falling backwards.
Isabel watched as he fell to the ground after Maria punched him in the face. She runs to his side as Maria starts pacing back and fourth. She is angry, no anger is not the right term, she is pissed. What should I do? Should I tell them the truth? Yes this has gone on long enough. Forgive me Liz, but I can't let this continue. It needs to be over. she thinks to herself. She turns to the three and begins.
"You have no idea what trust is. You have more to trust Liz Parker for then you know."
Michael holding his rapidly swelling cheek tries to get up, but the look that Maria gives him makes him think twice.
"It's all her fault." she screams, pointing at Tess. But before Tess can say a word, she continues.
As they listened to Maria retell the events of that night, guilt descends over each one of them. Liz was visited by a future version of Max, who asked her to help him fall out of love with her. Michael and Isabel had died because Tess had left. She had left because Liz and Max had "cemented" their relationship. So with out her the three of them were not strong enough to defend their enemies. Liz had tried everything to make Max fall out of love with her. As much as it killed her she had even gone to Tess and told her how she could make him notice her. Nothing worked. So she called Kyle and asked him to help her. She had to make Max believe that she betrayed him. He had to be with Tess and this was the only way that she knew to do that. It worked perfectly. Max came to her window and saw them in bed. The look on his face was almost enough to kill her. But that wasn't the worst of it, she had to continually lie to him each time he asked her if what he saw was true.
"So as you can see you owe her your lives. She gave up her soul mate to save you sorry asses and this is how you repay her? "You all make me sick." she screams while looking at the three of them. Realizing that there is nothing else to say she turns to leave. Just one more thing to say actually, she thinks as she turns to face Michael. "Oh and Michael, if you ever touch me or Liz again, I will kill you myself." and with that said she ran towards the back room to find Liz.
Isabel helped Michael up and they returned to the booth to find Tess crying. "It is all my fault. She did all of this because of me." she sobbed.
Isabel places her arms around Tess and tries to comfort her. What have we done. She sacrificed everything for us. As she continues to calm Tess she looks over at a very silent Michael. "We have to fix this. I don't know how, but we have to." she whispers.
Michael is not listening to anyone. He is too deep in his own thoughts. Liz gave up Max for my life and this is how I repay her, by pushing her around. Oh my god! What kind of a man am I? Maria....I have ruined everything between us, but I will do what ever it takes to fix this. I promise you that. He is pulled out of his thoughts by a hysterical Tess.
"I have to give Max up, NO! I WILL give Max up. She looks over at Isabel "I love you guys. I promise I will never leave, no matter what might happen." Isabel gives Tess and small smile and nods. They both look over at Michael who still has not said a word.
"Say something, Michael"
"Another reason to envy Max Evans." he states as he gets up. "We have to tell Max everything that just happened and take whatever consequences comes along with it."
Maria entered the back room and looked, around, But Liz wasn't there. She ran up the stairs that lead to the Parker's apartment and knocked on the door. When she didn't receive an answer she walked in. "Liz, where are you?" all she got as a reply was silence. She continued to search through the apartment and then entered her room. On the floor was her waitress uniform, but Liz was no where to be found. She noticed that the window was open and climbed out onto the balcony. Hearing a car honking she runs to the edge of the balcony and looks down. There she sees the retreating tail lights of Kyle's truck.
