For a reminder of part one see: previously on Roswell: What Might Have Been.



  1 INT. LIZ PARKER'S BEDROOM - NIGHT

Liz is dressed in her night attire, sitting on her bed, leaning against the pillows propped against the headboard. She is writing in her journal.

LIZ (VO)
Wednesday, March 1st. Yesterday I was pouring my heart and soul into this journal about my separation from Max, but was able to work out a solution and end on a note of hope. Now, just one day later, I'm wondering if I should be writing in this journal at all. If maybe I should hide it some place far away from any connection to me, or worse, destroy it.

Cut to:

  2 INT. EVANS HALLWAY - SAME

Max is pacing nervously in front of a closed door.

LIZ (VO) (cont'd)
I'm not sure I'm strong enough to give up my refuge, my source to express my innermost feelings and work out my biggest problems, but I also can't put Max, Michael and Isabel at risk.

  3 LIZ PARKERíS BEDROOM - CONTINUOUS

LIZ (VO) (cont'd)
There's a part of me that refuses to believe that my parents would invade my privacy so intrusively by reading my journal. If they do, they are not the people I've always thought they were. Is Michael just being paranoid? Did he just misinterpret what he heard? Am I at fault? Did my recent behavior push them to this limit? Can trust really be that fragile? I hate all these secrets so much that there's another part of me that wants them to read my journal, so I won't have to keep deceiving them, but I can't let that part of me make this decision.

Liz stops writing and looks out her window, up at the stars.

LIZ
(sighing)
Oh, Max ...

Cut to:

  4 INT. EVANS HALLWAY - SAME

Max is still pacing.

LIZ (VO)
How I wish Max's arms were around me, comforting me, right now. I can think more clearly when I'm calm, and I could make a more rational decision. If only his wish could come true and we could find a way to be together. I really need him right now.

Max stops pacing and approaches the closed door. He's about to knock, hesitates, then turns away.

Cut to:

  5 LIZ PARKERíS BEDROOM - CONTINUOUS

Liz closes her journal and gets off her bed to place the journal in its hiding place behind the loose brick in her bedroom wall. Returning to her bed, she crawls under the blankets. She reaches out to a picture of Max on her night stand, adjusting the frame so that Max's face will be the first thing she'll see when she wakes in the morning. Her fingers linger on his picture as a sad smile crosses her face. She then turns off the lamp and closes her eyes.

Cut to:

  6 INT. ISABEL EVANS'S BEDROOM - CONTINUOUS

Isabel is lying on her bed. She has the school newspaper picture of Kyle in front of her.

ISABEL
(to herself)
OK, Valenti, let's give you another chance to surprise me.

Isabel puts her finger on the picture and closes her eyes. We don't see what he's dreaming because she breaks from it immediately.

ISABEL
(irritated)
Baseball again!?

Isabel pushes the school newspaper aside and reaches for a fashion magazine at the end of her bed. As she is flipping through it there is a knock on her door.

ISABEL
Come in.

Max enters. It's obvious from the look on his face that he has something on his mind.

ISABEL (cont'd)
What's up?

MAX
Um ... I was just wondering something.

ISABEL
Wondering what?

MAX
Do you know if you can take someone with you on a dreamwalk?

The camera holds on Isabel's astonished look.
