Tess and Liz break the hug, and stand there looking at each other for a moment. Neither one wanting to break the moment that they just shared, but Tess is the first to speak. "So, you know?"
Liz looks at Tess with nothing but love in her eyes, "Yes, I know. I saw flashes of us when we were kids, and when I..."
"When you died saving me," Tess finished for her. "Lila, I mean Liz, I am so sorry for what happened. You should never have died. It should have been me." Tess began to cry again. Liz grabbed Tess and pulled her into a tight hug.
"Tess, it was not your fault," Liz began. "I do not blame you. You were and are my sister. I would do anything for you then, and now." Liz said while soothing Tess' sobs.
Tess breaks away from Liz's embrace to look at her sister in the eyes. "But, how can you forgive me for what I have done in this lifetime. Trying to take Max away from you...pushing you away time and time again. How can you ever forgive me or want to be my sister?"
Liz looks Tess in her eyes before speaking to her, "Tess, you didn't know. I would have probably done the same thing in your place. Besides, it does not matter now...all that matters is that you and I know the truth. We are sisters now and forever.
The two girls begin to hug again while everyone else looks on at them smiling. Tess and Liz break the hug and walk back over to where everyone is now sitting. While walking over to join the others Liz looks up and sees Max staring at her. "I am going to have to try and talk to Max later." Liz thought to herself.
"So, has everybody been introduced to Jennifer," Liz asked when she and Tess reached the booth. "Hey, where did Michael disappear to...and, where did Maria go?"
"To answer your first question we were just getting around to introducing ourselves to this beautiful young lady," Kyle said with a slight smirk on his face, which Tess quickly wiped, away from his face by pouching him on the arm. "OUCH! Anyways, as for Michael and Maria - Michael is the back working and Maria is getting dressed to cover your shift. She thought it might be a good idea for you to fill us in on your trip, so, why don't you two ladies sit and we can get started."
(Across the street from the Crashdown)
Sean/Kivar and Nicolas are outside talking. "I thought you said you would take care of this, Nicolas."
"Kivar, we almost had them but someone attacked us from behind before we could grab the book or any of them," Nicolas said trying to explain to Kivar.
"Excuses. Not only do they have the book but also they have the skin to help them. By the looks of it their precious Liz, knows who she use to be," Kivar stated angrily.
"We will grab the book before the translation is complete, we will grab the Princess too," Nicolas says trying to convince Kivar.
"How do you plan on doing that without getting caught my the Mighty King Zan. Once he knows the truth he will not let his precious princess out of his sight," Kivar demanded.
"We will grab the skin first before the translation can become complete...we will then grab the sister. If Liz is anything like she was in her past life she will do anything to protect her sister," Nicolas states confident that his plan will work.
"It better work your life might just depend on it," Kivar says with a sneer in his voice. "I must go this body is harder to control everytime I enter it. I will be in touch soon, and you better have some better news for me then.
"Oh, I will," Nicolas, says while watching Kivar/Sean walk away. "Not only will I have the book I will have our beloved Future Queen as well.
Everyone except Michael and Maria are sitting in the booth as Liz retells the events of the past week since Alex's death. The code Alex left behind, the dream Liz had about Alex's last night, and the urgency in the videotape telling her to get into contact with Jennifer.
"Oh, my God, Liz," Isabel said with a shock expression on her face. "How come you didn't come to us for help."
"I would have but it all just kind of fell into my lap before I knew it. I am still trying to understand it all myself," Liz said trying to explain to everyone at the table.
"What I don't is why did Alex keep all this away from us...and, how do you fit into all of this," Isabel asked to Jennifer.
Max was beginning to wonder this himself. "Jennifer how do you figure in on this? What do you know about our friend Alex."
Jennifer looks at the faces around her in amazement. In front of her is the Royal Court the individuals that would reunite all species on their planet and bring peace and prosperity to their world. "Let me introduce myself I am Jennifer and I have been on earth since 1947. Before you ask I was not part of the 1947 crash. I was not in any pod. You might know of my kind. The skins."
"You're a skin????" Isabel said with shock in her voice.
"Yes, now before you get me confused with Nicolas and his people I am not with them. The skins are basically split in half. There are those who are with Nicolas and support Kivar, but there are those who are in support of our original leaders and would like to see the balance of power restored. We have been in search of the Royal Family since we have landed here on earth."
"Why have you been looking for us," Max asked wanting to know what this girl knows.
"We have been in search for you, so, we could join you and protect you until you were ready to battle Kivar for your rightful places on our planet," Jennifer explained. "Until a few months ago we still had no idea who or where you guys were."
"How did you find out about us," Tess asked knowing this girl knew more about them and their pass lives than anyone else in the room.
"Your friend Alex. He and I met last quarter in the computer lab by accident," Jennifer started to explain. "Alex would work in the computer lab trying to decipher some mysterious language. One day I was walking behind him and noticed the symbols on his computer they are the same symbols that are in this book." Jennifer digs out of her bag and pulls the book that she showed Liz and Maria earlier.
"What's that," Isabel asks as she takes the book. She opens the book and notices the symbols inside. "Max, look at the symbols in here. They are same that are in the cave that we found a long time ago."
Max takes the book and looks at the writing inside. "What is this book about and do you know what it says?"
"No, I do not know what the symbols say, and as for the book it reveals your destiny. It speaks not only of your past lives but what your lives hold in the future," Jennifer explained to the astonished faces in front of her. "That is how I knew that Liz was Princess Lila. Her picture is present in the book along with yours."
Tess grabs the book away from Max and looks at it to see if what Jennifer saying is true. "You mean this book here can tell us what our past lives were like."
"Yes, unfortunately we haven't been able to translate the whole book yet," Jennifer, answers Tess.
"Wait, a second you said you saw Alex working on deciphering some symbols like this. Why would Alex be deciphering these symbols," Liz asked to Jennifer.
"Before Alex came to Las Cruses he was experience some weird and intense dreams. Dreams that were so powerful that he could not get them out of his mind. He never quite remembered what the dreams were about but he did remember seeing these symbols," Jennifer began to explain. "Las Cruses University has one of the best quantum computer labs in the United States. Hence, it is the best place to decode symbols and languages."
"So, Alex was trying to decode the symbols from his dream which happen to be in this book," Max said to Jennifer.
"Yes, when I realized what Alex was trying to do I revealed myself to him, and he in turn told me about all of you. You could not imagine my excitement when he told me he knew of all of you. After all this time I was just a few miles away from the Royal Family."
"How far did Alex get to decoding these symbols," Kyle asked getting more and more interested in the present conversation.
"I am not sure. I am pretty sure he got most of it decoded, but I haven't heard from him in a few weeks, and I hear now he is no longer with us," Jennifer stated with great sadness in her voice.
"You mean you can't help us decode the book," Tess asked disappointment apparent in her voice.
"See, Alex and I decided that it would be best to keep the book and the code separate for safety reason. Towards the end of our time together we started to get the feeling we were being followed and spied on," Jennifer stated. "One time on campus I spotted Nicolas. I spoke to him briefly asking him what he was doing there, but he never gave me an answer."
"When was the last time you heard from Alex," Liz asked Jennifer.
"I heard from Alex about three weeks ago. Said he almost had the code cracked, and he was going to fill you guys in as soon as he cracked the code. He did mention to me that code was written in an ancient Native American language that was extinct."
"Did he ever mention where he might have put the translation of his code in," Max asked.
"No, he didn't...wait, I didn't get a chance to go back to my dorm room before we left, but I received a box from Roswell today in the mail. I wonder if maybe it has the disks of codes that Alex was working on."
"Let's go get them," Tess says excitedly.
"Wait! We can't just go back to Jennifer's dorm room tonight. We have to fill Michael and Maria in on what is going on," Max says starting to go into leader mode. "Tomorrow, first thing we all drive over there to see what is in the box. If it is the disks then Jennifer can help tell us what this book says. Is everyone in agreement here." Max asks everyone.
Everyone nods their head in agreement. "Okay, when Michael and Maria get off we will fill them in on what we just learned.
