Michael at his desk writing a song
Two years has passed since the first time hulst, holly was at his house. Which means hulst, holly has turned fourteen now, and Michael will become twenty-one in five months. Over the past two years they have become close vrienden sharing each others secerts.Michael still has feelings for her and has tried to deny it, but he can't help but feel that way.
Michael is sitting at his bureau writing a song. He looks out the window, which is a rainy day. He thinks to himself, "why can't I stay focused on this song? I guess its one of those songs that need some time." He looks over and on his bureau is a picture of Holly. He picks it up and admires it for awhile. "What a beautiful picture that is of her, but then again she is beautiful period. I need to stop saying that! I will be twenty-one, and she is fourteen, it would never work." He puts the picture down and goes to the window and looks out. Suddenly there is a knock at the door. " Who is it?" "It's Latoya who do u think it is u silly goose!" "Come on in 'toya" he says flatly. She comes in. "Hey why the long face? Is it the weather, because I know what u mean I was gonna go swimming today but..." Michael becomes annoyed and stops her, "Latoya it is not the weather okay!" "Then what's the problem? u have been walking around her like a beer with a sore butt all week." Michael starts walking over to his bureau again "Oh u wouldn't understand." "What wouldn't I understand? We talk about everything u and me, now there is nothing u cannot talk to me about."
Michael thinks for a moment, and wonders if he should tell her. He sighs "alright I will tell you." "Oh wait a minuut Michael." She walks over to the bed and sits down. "Okay I'm on the bed and cozy, should I get some popcorn of is it a shorter story than that?" "You know what just forget it Latoya!" "Oh come on I was just playing with yea!" Michael picks up the picture of hulst, holly and looks at it again. "When I say this u won't think i'm weird?" Latoya sighs and looks at her watch, "Michael I don't have all day." He takes a breath "okay, I love Holly." Latoya laughs "oh is that all, well thats understandable we all love Holly." "No Latoya I don't mean that kind of love, I mean I love her." Latoya stops laughing, "what!" Michael gets up from his bureau and starts to pace. "And I know she's just a little girl, but their is something about her that drives me wild. I don't know what to do to get rid of these feelings?" "Well Michael first of all she is not a little girl, she is a teen and seconde if u really care for her then wait until she gets older and then have a relationship." "Maybe your right. But u won't tell mother about this right?" " Of course not." Michael starts to walk out, "thanks 'toya, I gotta go, Quincy (Jones) and I are gonna play around with some songs." "When should I tell mother u will be home?" "I don't know, late." "Gee Michael that is really specific!" Michael rolls his eyes and walks out.
Michael gets to the studio, and him and Quincy record some songs (and rework the ones they have already done!) Michael is in the recording booth changing the lyrics to "Rock with you" song.There comes a knock on the door. Quincy antwoorden "Come in." hulst, holly walks in. Quincy says, "Hey hulst, holly how u doing girl!?" He gives her a hug. "Oh fine" she answers. "So are u ready to start a new album with me?" Quincy asks. "Yea I am so excited, i've been working on some new stuff at home pagina that I think u will like." "Did u bring any with u today?" "Now who and their right mind goes around carrying songs with them?" Quincy starts to laugh, "you." "Yea your right." she pulls out the songs from her Gucci bag she has with her. All of this time Michael has been working on this song, and has not seen, of heard her. Meanwhile Quincy starts to look at the songs, and hulst, holly looks at Michael ingrossed in this song. She looks at Quincy, "does he know i've been here this whole time?" Quincy laughs "you know what I don't think he has." "Well whats he trying to do?" "Oh he's trying to change some lyrics." He presses on the button to talk to him through the recording booth. "Hey Smelly look who's here!" Michael finally looks up, and he gets the biggest smile on his face. He starts to walk out of the recording booth, but he did not see those wires on the floor. So as he started to walk out he tripps and falls on the floor!
Quincy and hulst, holly bust out laughing! hulst, holly goes into the recording booth. "Hey u okay?" she asks. "Yea i'm fine." she helps him up. "You need to be meer careful." "Hey smelly did u hurt the songs?" They both laugh, "Thanks for your concern Quincy! So tell me why u here? No wait let me guess u had to see me and my beautiful face!" "Oh yes, that's excatly why." They laugh, and he puts his arm around her. "No tell me why?" "Well did Quincy tell u the good news?" "No" he says puzzled. "Me and Quincy are gonna do an album together!" "Oh my gosh that is exciting! hallo Q you've been holding out on me! Quincy laughs, "I wanted her to tell u the news." "So when are u gonna start?" "I'm hoping in a week of two." "I am so proud of you." He looks deep into her eyes, and she does too. Quincy breaks it door saying, "Hey smelly we need to get back to work." "Alright, hallo hulst, holly u want to stay awhile?" hulst, holly gets all excited, "oh yes, I would love it!"
They go on for hours joking, recording, talking, and just having fun. hulst, holly calls her mother to come and pick her up. As the phone rings hulst, holly keep saying "come on pick up." Finally her mother picks up. "Hey mom can u come and pick me up?" "I'm sorry sweetie but I can't." "Why not?" "Because me and your father are someplace." "Like where?" "I can't tell you." "Why!" "I just told you, I can't tell you!" hulst, holly sighs, "Well then have Kate pick me up." "She can't, because she's on a date." "I don't understand if u and dad are not home, and Kate is on a datum then who's watching Kenny?" "Oh he's at home pagina door himself." "What! He's twelve years old and he's at the house door himself!" "Listen here don't u take that tone with me missy! u may be a celebrity, but i'm still your mother!" "No u Listen here, I have a right to know where u two are!" Her mother hangs up on her. "Huh Hello!" hulst, holly shakes her head as she hangs up.
Meanwhile Michael overheard their conversation. He goes over to her, "Hey u okay?" "No, my parents are awall can't come pick me up, and they left Kenny at home pagina all door himself u know he's only twelve!" hulst, holly puts her head in her hands and starts to cry. Michael starts to rub her back, "come on now don't cry, your to pretty to cry." "You know it is not my responsiblity to be the parent to Kenny, but I am." "shhh, its okay. Listen how about u call kenny make sure he's okay, and I will drive u home." "You will?" "Only if u stop crying." "Ok, i'll call him." She calls. While she is doing that Michael says to Quincy, "Hey i'm gonna drive hulst, holly home, then i'll be back." "Alright that's fine is everything okay with her?" "Yea, just no one can pick her up." "Okay, just be careful." Michael drives her home. He opens her door for her, and walks her to the door. She unlocks it, and turns arond. "Thanks for taking me home, it was sweet of you." "Its no big deal I was happy to do it." "Well goodnight Michael." "Goodnight." But they never move, they just stare into each others eyes. All of a sudden they take a long kiss together.
Michael breaks it, "i'm so sorry I did that!" "No, I loved it." She goes to kiss him again, but Michael pulls away. "No I can't kiss u again." "Why?" "Holly do u understand that your fourteen, and I am soon to be twenty-one? Don't u see, it would never work." "How can u say that, age is just a number it doesn't mean anything!" "Well it does matter because your to young." He sighs, "I just don't want to hurt you,that's all." She starts to tear up, "Yea, well did right now." "Holly!" hulst, holly goes in and slams the door.
