The Setup

The year is 2011, The Roswell 6 have been running from the FBI's special task force for roughly 9 years, ever since that fateful afternoon, when they disappeared during their high school graduation. Within the first year of their run from the FBI and Roswell, Max and Liz got married; Michael and Maria had gotten engaged. Kyle and Isabel regard each other as brother and sister. Being on the run does not allow for the forming of intimate relationships with others outside their circle. Over the years these 6 have been responsible for the saving of countless lives and averting disasters. The original van they used to flee Roswell has been replaced by a Ford SUV. The color is unimportant as is the license place as both keep changing as they travel around. Kyle still gets a kick out manipulating molecular structure and changing either the color of the van or the license plate and often both. As he once told his dad, "When I start crackling like tin foil in a microwave, I want to be with my own kind." He can still hear Michael saying to Max in a sarcastic voice, "Does he get to call us his own kind now?" So with that in mind he likes to show Michael as often as possible that he can be useful and help out his "Own Kind", when he wants.

Liz and Max are more in love today than they were when they left Roswell and even the day they got married, their bond has grown to the point where they communicate telepathically without thinking about it. When they kiss they still see what is in the mind of the other. Kyle and Isabel have adopted a saying, it is not original however it is valid in their minds as they tend to say it simultaneously more often than not, when they see the two start to get hot and heavy, "GET A ROOM!" .

During the third year on the road, Maria developed streptococcus pneumonia. They were in Los Vegas, NV because Michael decided they needed a break from the stress and since they were of legal age, he figured this time they could keep their winnings. It was a great plan, really it was he was going to assume the name Dr. Love again, much to Maria's delight and he an Maxwell were going to stick together and clean up at, Craps. Well, that was the plan until Liz decided that they would be better paired if she and her new husband could use the excuse for a honeymoon. Max agreed with Liz in the proverbial heart beat and Maria told Michael if he taught her how to play Craps, she would rock his world. At which point Isabel and Kyle went downstairs and played 21, each walking away with over $30,000. They would have won more but it seems the casino at The Luxor frowned on people who could count cards, Isabel was ready to argue, when Kyle diplomatically covered her mouth with his right hand and just nodded at the nice people as they got up from the table and went to collect their winnings, Izzy grumbling all the way to the cashers cage, muttering something that sounded like, "The nerve of some peoples children." Kyle just shot her a look and then burst out laughing. She in return shot him daggers.

Day three into the trip, found Maria and Michael, playing craps, she had been hiding the fact that she had been achy with a slight fever and a cough. Michael, was so happy with her rocking his world that he hadn't noticed. The few times he commented on her coughing, she just shrugged it off saying the dry NV air was bothering her throat. As she watched Michael throw the dice she began to get dizzy, her chest ached and she went into a coughing fit. Rust colored mucus, flooded her hand as she coughed into it. Her vision blurred as the room seemed to tilt to the left. Her eyes rolled up into her head as she crashed to the floor. Michael was beside her in an instant calling her name. The others heard his telepathic cry for help and made their way quickly to the couples side. Michael looked up at Max with terror in his eyes, he was scared to death. They were in a crowded Casino, there was no way Max could heal her, there was just too many people all staring at them. As if in slow motion, paramedics with a stretcher appeared at their side, Michael followed them to the ambulance and got in the back. The others got the name of the hospital and followed. Max telepathically tried to calm Michael, telling him she would be okay. On the way to the hospital, she was put on oxygen to help her breathing. It all happened so fast and Michael was sure he was going to lose her.

When Max and the others arrived at the hospital, they had to wait to see Maria, until the doctors could do the lab work on her blood and her exam. She had streptococcus pneumonia. The worst case they had seen in 15 years. She was unconscious and Max wasn't allowed near her for the first 5 hours. Even if he could get in to heal her, she was unconscious and he needed to look into her eyes to make his connection. The only good thing was, Maria was stable at the moment.

They needed a plan, so they all went down to the cafeteria to plan. Michael, had no patience for planning he just wanted Maria, healthy and back to her annoying self. So while he stayed in the room with Maria, the others came up with the way. Max decided, Kyle, would mind warp the nurses and doctors, Liz would go into the computer and purge all the records so as far as the hospital was concerned they never had a patient withpneumonia. Then they would get out of Dodge and head for Mystic Falls, VA. They needed a quiet and small town to lay low in. They needed to set down roots, they were emotionally exhausted.

Three hours later with a recovered Maria and a now calm Michael, a silver SUV was heading in the direction of Mystic Falls.

Maria's DNA was forever changed that day, 6 years ago. All 6 were now alien/human hybrids. Maria, has yet to come into her own powers, but none the less it is bound to happen. Time will tell…..

Mystic Falls: 2009. 5 days before the arrival of the Pod Squad…..

Elena Gilbert, sat in her bedroom, on the window love seat where she was more than likely to be found writing in her diary. It was 11:15p.m. she had just returned from a date with Stefan, her vampire boyfriend. Her hair was still damp from her shower as she started to write.

It is August 15th, Stefan just dropped me off from our pool date at the, Mystic Inn, where we met with Caroline, Bonnie, Jeremy and of course the ever annoying Damon. As usual I spent a good third of the night deflecting Damon's sexual innuendo's. As if that wasn't bad enough, I had to watch my brother and Bonnie make goo goo eyes at each other. It's weird, since Mom and Dad died last year in the car crash, I think my brother is finally happy. He has been drug free for about 6 months. I have Bonnie to thank for that. Caroline, seems to have a crush on my ex boyfriend Matt. It is nice to see them happy. My human and not so human friends have accepted Stefan and me being together. Which makes me happy since I am so in love with him. Tonight he told me he loved me and wanted us to get away for a weekend. It made my stomach do that flip flop thing it does whenever I am near him or think about him. I told him I loved him too. Then Damon had to ruin it by triing to compel and kiss me, thank god Stefan gave me that necklace with the vervain in it. I slapped him. I think that was truly the only time I have seen him shocked. Damon has turned out to be a really good friend, he has protected me countless times from evil vampires, which in itself is weird when you take into account he himself is an evil vampire. I am smiling as I write this because even though he is evil, mostly I get to see his good side. I remember hearing or reading once that when love shows itself, you just know it. Nothing else matters and you can't help loving the one you love. I love Stefan, so much it hurts. His touch and kisses set me on fire in a way I have never known before. Damon on the other hand is really one of my best friends, I just wish he would accept the fact that it is Stefan I love and that is not going to change. Alright it's late and I really need to get to sleep before Aunt Jenna decides to stick her head in and talk to me. I love her to death, but I just don't want to hear the lecture of I am too young to be this in love. So good night dear diary and I will write more in another day or so.

At that Elena, closes her diary puts it away in her lingerie draw and crawls into bed and within moments she is fast asleep.

Damon is sitting in front of the fireplace, staring into the fire, glass of scotch in his right hand as he thinks back over the night. A smirk graces his perfect features as Stefan comes in.

"So Damon, have fun tonight?" His voice is hard as he steps in front of his brother, clearly he is annoyed at his older brother once more putting the moves on Elena.

"Oh please little brother, we both know she loves you, just like Katherine loved you, it's always about Stefan! So here is the deal, you convince Bonnie to help me get Katherine out of the tomb and I will leave you and your precious Elena alone." Even though Damon's voice is laced with one of the few emotions he allows to surface, hate, his eyes tell a different story and for once Stefan, decides to trust his older brother.

"Fine give me a couple of days to run it by Elena and then I will approach Bonnie."

Faster then the human eye could follow, Damon moves and slam's Stefan against the far wall his hand on his throat, chocking him, his anger is a palatable thing come to life. "I hate you Stefan, can't you think on your own for once. Everything has to be about you and your damn, Elena. I am asking you for help. Not Elena, so why do you have to as you say, run it by her. You are either going to help me, free the woman I love or not." Taking a deep un-needed breath Damon, release the choke hold and takes a step back.

Stefan, rubs his throat, and takes in his older brothers stance, rigid, his body language screaming for help looking into blue eyes filled with pain he say's softly, "Look in one week the comet passes overhead, if we can believe the prophesy, that is the time, Bonnie should if she be able to open the seal on the tomb. But if I do this Damon, you have got to stop messing with Elena and Bonnie."

Looking into his brothers green eye's he see's something he has not seen in a long time, acceptance it elicits and emotional response that Damon quickly pushes back, he can't afford emotions not now, he has to be cold and calculating if he is going to get through the next week. So instead of returning with a smart ass remark, he sticks out his right hand waiting for Stefan to take it and say's, "Done!" Stefan takes his hand and pulls Damon into a hug then releases him. "Oh one more thing, there are 25 tomb vampires in there how do you propose we keep them in once you find Katherine."

"Stef they will be so weak and wasted into nothing from not having blood for the past 150 years that it should be no problem. All I want is Katherine, I get her and get out. The little witch does her mojo, reseals the tomb and all is right with the world." He smirks and goes to retrieve his scotch and downs it in a single gulp. "I am going to go out hunting, don't wait up."

"Damon!" Stefan say's as his brother moves towards the door. "If you kill anyone, Bonnie is not going to help you, you know that."

He cocks his head slightly to the left as he regards his younger brother. "Relax St. Stefan, who said anything about killing?" With that he is gone leaving a somewhat bothered brother in his wake. Thinking about all that was just said, Stefan goes upstairs and get's ready for bed. He will deal with it tomorrow.

In the town of Bradon, VA, 60 miles outside of Mystic Falls, a dark haired man sit's nursing a glass of scotch. Thinking of how he came to this point in time. He is so preoccupied with his thoughts that he doesn't see the blond headed girl take a seat next to him. She watches him for a few moments before she speaks, "Buy a girl a drink?"

The dark haired man looks up from his drink and fixes her with a look as he takes in her facial features before his eyes scan the rest of her. She appears to be in her mid-twenties, not hard on the eyes at all, he looks back up at her face, his eyes lingering on the strong column of her neck, before going to her brown eyes. "Sure, what would you like?"

"How about cranberry juice and soda?" She replies, playfully. Internally she can't help but wonder why she is flirting with him, she doesn't do flirting, but something drew her to this man, and for the life of her just once she is going to see what happens, she has been so lonely for the last few years, that just once she wants to do something out of character. Her 5 companions are sitting at a booth off to the side of the bar, watching her. The dark haired one starts to stand, but his dark haired companion, puts a hand on his arm and when he looks lovingly into her eyes he sit's back down. She smiles back with equal love in her eyes as the others stare at the blond at the bar and think to themselves, "What the hell!"

Feeling their eyes on her, she turns towards the table and flashes a look that tells them to leave her be, though it goes every fiber of their being, they comply. Out of the 6 she has been the loneliest and though it out of character for her to do what she is about to do, they decide as one, to let her have this.

The dark haired man, say's to the bartender, "A Sea breeze, with soda and lime!"

Smiling at him, she shakes her head no and say's softly, "No Alcohol, just Cranberry juice, with soda, and the lime." He looks at her and smirks as she continues. "Do you have any Tabasco sauce?"

The look the bartender gives her is one of confusion, he thought he heard it all, but Tabasco sauce, that's a new one. He simply nods his head, makes her drink and put's the bottle of Tabasco sauce in front of her.

Her dark haired companion, looks at her with curiosity before he speaks, "That's new!"

She flashes him a 100 megawatt smile and shrugs. "I am from New Mexico."

He frowns slightly then smiles, "What they don't drink in New Mexico?"

"I can't I am allergic!" She can't help herself, she is drawn to his blue eyes, they are just to, pretty. She has been alone for the last 8 or so years and now for the first time she wants to be selfish she wants something for herself. She wants him.

For his part when first he noticed her he was hungry and thought he had found a meal. Now, and he couldn't explain this if his life depended on it, all thoughts of hunger are gone, all he can think of are her lips. What they would feel like against hers and he leans slightly forward.

The taller of the three men at the table, get's up and walks towards them, as he sees the blonde also lean slightly forward her eyes hooded her body reacting to his, when suddenly she feel's a hand on her arm, "Princess, time to leave, we have to be in Mystic Fall's by morning."

The moment is shattered for them both, as the dark haired man, stands and takes her right hind in his left and lifts it to his lips. Still holding her hand in his, he says, "I am from Mystic Falls maybe I will see you there. Just ask for the Salvatore, Boarding House." Blue eyes lock with brown, as two souls that should never come together do none-the-less. He stands up still holding her hand and leans in to her ear and whispers softly, "I am Damon Salvatore." He then leans back and looks back into her eyes as she replies.

"Isabel Evans and count on it."

With that the young man takes her away and they head outside where the other four are waiting for them. Her brother is the first to speak, "What the hell Izzy, what was that all about?"

She has a dreamy look in her eyes as she finally focuses on her brother and says in a soft voice, "He's just so pretty, did you see his eyes?"
