"is she dead?" I asked as I tried to check her pulse. There is a pulse she is still alive but the question really is why is she here and was she this whole entire time?
" She is sick Obviously something happen to her" Well, duh something has happen to her. I notice something on her shirt. I lifted her shirt up and I see what looks like a bandage on her stomach. I slowly lift the bandage and see what looks like a cut as I examined it closer I realize its not just a cut.
" oh my god" I said laying her shirt back down.
"What?" Michael asked.
" Looks.... like someone might have cut her open. We need serena now" I said. I dont know how I get myself in the middle of all this alien drama. I dont want to be a part of this anymore I dont want alien DN, blood or whatever it is inside me. I looked down at my hands and they started to glow a light green. I looked over at tess's lifeless looking body and lean down over her. I placed my hand on her arm and closed my eyes.
Tess's body laid on a table she was strapped down she pulled on the restraints but there was no use.
" No!" She screamed as she fought on the table.
" We have to take the baby out" Someone said as she tried to kick and scream.
"No! Dont take my baby!" She yelled.
" Cut her open!" Tess screamed in bloody pain as Someone cut open her stomach.
I gasped for breath as I pulled my hand away from tess's arm. What the hell is going on?
"Maria?" Michael asked curiously. I looked up at michael and Then everything went black and my head hit the floor.
Is this really happening How is this possible? Well I know its possible but I dont know if I can believe it right now. Ive been sitting in this bathroom for what seemed like hours hyperventilating as I wait. what am I going to do? This wasnt planned obviously and what will happen now? I dont even know how this will even work. Fear is starting to settle and suddenly Im starting to feel really sick.
" Liz?" I jumped startled by the knock on the bathroom door. Max is starting to worry oh god what am I going to do? What am I going to say?
"I'm fine" I quickly grab everything and put it back in the paper bag didnt even get a chance to even look at anything and I shoved the paper bag under the sink hopefully he wont look under there and find it. I open the door and found max looking at me curiously.
"you ok?" He asked.
" Yea. Im fine" I said as I walked out of the bathroom.
" Something is going on with Michael he has been blowing up my phone. And serena took off I dont know where she is. Are you sure your ok?" he asked me again.
" yea go find michael" I said hoping he would leave so I could get this done and over with. He just stood there looking at me curiously suddenly I felt really sick and I found myself running to bathroom and putting my head in the toilet. Max Came in behind me and pulled my hair back and held my hair away from my face as I got sick.
" Im fine max" I said as I tried to breath in fear of throwing up again.
" Obviously not" he said.
"Just a stomach virus or something" I said he handed me a towel and I wiped my mouth and face. I could see the concerned look in his eyes. He wasnt going to give up on this he knew I was hiding something. I looked over at the cabinet under the sink and pulled out the paper bag. He looked at me curiously then looked at the paper bag.
" There is something" I said as I opened the bag and pulled out the pregnancy test. I didnt need to look at the test to know what it said.
" Im pregnant" I said softly.
I slowly open my eyes and sat up Now I have a massive headache. Michael helped me up and I pushed him away from me.
" dont touch me" I said pushing him away. I dont want him touching me I dont want any of this.
"what happen?" He asked.
" She had a baby. Someone cut the baby out of her" I said as I tried to push the images out of mind. Now I have so many more questions I dont have answers to and I dont want answers to. I dont want any of this I just want to live a normal life alien free.
" your saying she was pregnant?" Michael asked.
" I dont know and I dont care. I just want to be left alone" I stood up but felt dizzy and ended up sitting right back down.
" Maria" he said softly. I pushed him away once more I held my head trying to get the dizziness to stop and the room from spinning.
" Just dont touch me right now" I said. Michael backed away.
I dont know what to say or do right We cant get Liz to a doctor because what if the baby is alien like me? And how do we know for sure she really is pregnant?
" you have alot of questions dont you?" Serena asked.
" Yeah I do" I said.
" We have trouble coming our way now max. Liz isnt going to be safe" serena said. Another thing I have to worry about now. I paced the room back and fourth not know what to do or even how to feel right now. Should I be Happy? Should I be scared?
" She is going to need medical attention we cant give her medical attention doctors will know something is up" I said.
" Her pregnancy wont be a normal human pregnancy. The baby may grow a little faster then normal because of the alien DNA. We have to keep her safe they are already out there watching and looking. Pretty we will have trouble at our door" serena said.
" Im not running I will fight to protect that baby and Liz. They can come all they want they will not get my child or liz" Suddenly flashes from my visions flooded my mind I wont let her die and I wont let my child grow up without its mother. I cant let that happen I wont let that happen.
" My brother can help us our father trained him to be the best he can help liz if he is willing" Serena said.
"Find him" I said. she shook her head and headed out the front door. I went into the bedroom and found Liz curled up on the bed sleeping. She had been sick practically all day and I have been trying to get her to eat but she wont.
" Liz baby lets try to eat" I said softly.
" I want peanut butter" She said softly. Peanut butter, I think I can handle that.
" Ok I think I can handle that" I said softly.
"apples put it on apples" She whispered.
"Apples" I said As I went to the kitchen. I dont know if I can handle all this I dont know if I can process all this right now.
I dont know how to process all this I dont know how to accept all this or even what to do now. I Just need some time alone to think to breath and process everything. Tess. Something happen to her when she left here but why did she return? why am I worrying about this? My head is spinning and I feel Like Im going to puke.
"You ok?" Serena asked as she came over to me.
"yeah I will be fine" Serena took my hand and I felt a shock wave and I pulled back.
" That's not good. Not another thing we have to deal with where's Michael?" She asked.
" At his place with..." I started to say.
" With Tess Lets go" She said.
" No" I said shaking my head.
" you have to help us Michael needs you we all need you" She said.
" No you dont need me. I 'don't want to be a part of this anymore" I said softly. Serena looked at me curiously.
" Maria we are all about to be in trouble Liz is pregnant your a part of this your connected to Michael in so many ways. He needs you Liz needs you " Serena said. Tears started to roll down my cheeks I shook my head yes and followed her.
Tess was finally coming around I gave her some water and she drank and was resting. I dont think she knows where she is at. The front door open and Serena walked in with maria I was worried about her. Our eyes met and she looked away and rushed over to tess with serena. Serena examined her and noticed the cut on her stomach.
" They took the baby" She said.
"So she was pregnant? By who?" Michael asked. Maria at me curiously and then looked away she knew something I didnt know.
" Its max's" She said softly. What?
"What? How do you know that?" I asked her.
" max slept with Tess after Liz left I confronted him about it and he said it was a mistake and That he thinks Tess mind warped him or something to make him think she was Liz" She said. This is news to me holy shit!
" Who took the baby?" I asked.
" I...don't know" maria said softly.
" wasn't aliens" Serena whispered.
" What?" I asked.
" I don't think it was aliens who took the baby They wouldn't have cut her open like this and then sewed her back up they would have just killed her and tortured her and killed the baby" Serena said. So what is she saying We have alien hunters after us now? Great just great!
" That doesnt matter because we have other fish to fry. Has she drank anything?" Serena asked.
"Water thats about it" I said.
" Good I know you guys don't really particular care for Tess but she needs to stay alive we all need to stay alive we have a battle we are going to have to fight" Serena said. We each took turns watching Tess and making she was comfortable. Serena didn't want us to use our powers on her because it would probably end up hurting her more. I say let her suffer but Serena had other plans. I cant believe Maxwell fell her bullshit now he has a kid out there and we don't know where it is or if its even alive.
I'm exhausted and tired Maria wont even look at me I need to know whats going on in her head.
" Liz is pregnant" She said softly not looking at me.
"what? Dam it Maxwell!" I yelled.
" I don't want to do this anymore I will stay long enough to fight and to make sure your ass doesn't die but I don't know if I can do this" She said. I stood in front of her took her hand in mine lifted her chin up and made her eyes meet mine.
"Don't you leave me don't do this to me maria" I said. she started to push away but I forced her to look at me.
" Don't please because I will break if I loose you. We do this together" I said. Tears were rolling down her cheeks I reached in and Kissed the tears off her cheeks and laid my forehead against hers and just took her in. She wrapped her arms around my neck and pulled me in closer and kissed me.
" We can do this" I whispered on her lips. I held her tightly not wanting to let her go I never want to let this dam girl go. I'm incomplete without her now I'm sure as hell not letting her go no where. We held each other for what seemed like an eternity all I want to do right now is go to sleep in her arms as corny as that sounds but That's how I feel right now.
"Are you going to tell her your here or just stalk her from the shadows?" Serena's brother asked me. He is a annoying little bug I just wish I could kill but unfortunately I cant because I love Serena way too much to kill her brother.
" I will when the time is right besides she has been running around town looking for you. She needs your medical expertise" I said.
" The queen is with child. dam it that means Kivar will be on his way were all screwed" He said.
" The alien hunters had one baby and Kivar wants the other" I said.
"Wait what? what do you mean had?" he asked.
" No worries there my friend. All is good we dont have to worry about the alien hunters all we have to worry about is Kivar and If this baby survives. The moment I saw tess and The moment I saw that baby I knew" I said.
" Where is serena now?" He asked me.
" Let her find you" I said.
" If she needs my help..." I stopped him from saying another word.
" Let her find you" I said once again.
"Ok your the boss" he said with raised hands.
I know what I am doing Its my royal duty to serve and protect thats why I am staying in the shadows until its the right time. Serena knows I will be showing up soon she is going to need my help soon and her brothers help soon too. Kivar wants them all dead and I Cant allow that I wont allow that its my job to protect until I can longer do so.
