The volgende dag I woke up pretty early in the morning. The sunlight went through my bedroom window. My eyes squinted when I tried to look through the glass. I held my hand over my eyes and got out of bed. I quickly got out of my pajamas and got into my casual clothes. My Mom was still asleep so I couldn't go outside of else I would wake her up, and trust me, if I wake her up she will be very upset. I just stayed in my room. I grabbed my drawing notebook and a pencil, then I jumped on my bed getting ready to draw. "Hmmm....what should I draw?" I thought. Suddenly, I had a quick flashback of Michael and I talking yesterday. I blinked a couple of times and smiled,"I know...." I drew a hart-, hart and wrote something in it. "Genesis plus Michael equals Love" I whispered to myself as I wrote it down. I had a warm feeling in my stomach that I've never felt before, It was a feeling that words cannot explain. Whatever it was, it made me feel fuzzy inside.
I was really getting into my drawing. I went ahead and got some colored pencils and started to color the heart. The finishing product was marvelous! I was so proud of my artwork that I couldn't stop smiling. All of a sudden I heard a noise near my window. I turned to see what was making the noise, but I couldn't quite figure it out. I walked closer to the window, but I still didn't see anything. I walked even closer so that this time my head was sticking out the window. I looked both ways and only saw the couple of houses down the block. "What the heck? Where's the noise coming from!?!" I zei to myself. I was starting to get mad. Then out of no where Michael yelled,"BOO!" I screamed so loud that the whole neighborhood could've heard me. I quickly covered my mouth with both hands and looked at Michael. He was laughing so hard he fell to the ground. I removed my hands over my mouth. I couldn't help but smile at him. Michael started to calm down,"I scared u pretty bad didn't I?" I didn't want to answer him, but I had no choice. "Ugh..yes..." He smiled at me,"Im sorry. I just wanted to suprise ya."
I couldn't stop staring at his cuteness, but thank God he didn't notice. Michael looked up at me with his brown eyes and smiled,"Hey Genesis, do u wanna come over my house?" I was a little confused,"Right now?" He giggled,"Yeah right now!" I stayed silent for a moment, but then I smiled at him,"Uh sure." I carefully climbed out of the window trying to go outside. I jumped off and luckily I landed on my feet, It kinda hurt though. Trying not to look like a fool I fixed my hair and dusted myself off. Michael looked at me,"You ready?" I laughed a little,"Yeah.." He started walking down the block, I followed. When we made it at his house I was so excited! My hart-, hart was pounding against my ribs. I could hardly breathe straight. Michael looked serious,"Whatever u do don't make a sound okay?" I interrupted him,"But-" "DON'T MAKE A SOUND!" I folded my arms,"Fine I won't make a sound..." He nodded at me and led me inside. He slowly opened the front door making a loud screeching sound. Michael looked a little worried.
We both tiptoed inside. Michael and I both headed inside the kitchen. I was a little lost,"Uh...what are we going to do?" Michael looked both ways checking if anyone was around,"Okay...so yesterday after I got back to the studio, my brothers and I all got ready to sing." "Yeah?" "So I started the first verse of the song and then I saw Jackie outside with a girl. So im thinking, why isn't he in here?" "Uh huh?" "So I paused in the middle of the song yelling Jackie's name so loud he turned to look at me. I thought I got HIM in trouble but I actually got MYSELF in trouble. Joseph started yelling at me, and when we got home...lets just say....he had a little 'talk' with me." His eyes were filled with anger,"So right now...it's time for a little payback!" My eyes widened,"P-payback?" He walked over to the fridge and took out a can of whipped cream and some chocolate syrup. He handed me the chocolate syrup and smiled,"Yeah it's payback! Come on don't be shy. This is where the fun starts!" I looked down at the bottle of chocolate syrup and smirked,"You're right...it's payback time!"
Michael and I both ran upstairs laughing. When we got up on the seconde floor everyone was asleep, I guess Michael was the only morning person in the family. Michael walked up to Jackie's bedroom door. It was a plain white door that had a sign that zei 'JACKIE' on it. How obvious. Michael put one finger on his lips telling me to be quiet. I nodded at him and smiled. He slowly opened Jackie's bedroom door. We both tiptoed inside trying so hard not to laugh. I slowly shut the door behind me and saw Jackie sleeping oh so sweetly. Michael and I were both standing over his bed. I was starting to have second-thoughts,"Michael are u sure about this? I mean what if he wakes up?" Michael smiled,"Trust me...Jackie is a DEEP sleeper, now will u be quiet please. Im gonna make the first move." Michael looked at the can of whipped cream. He closed his eyes really tight and started to shake the can. "Here it goes...." He whispered. He squirted the whip cream all over Jackie's afro. I wanted to burst out laughing, but I couldn't. I covered my mouth with my hand.
I can't believe Jackie didn't wake up yet. Michael put the last amount of whip cream on him then he stopped and looked at me,"Your turn Genesis." I slowly walked over to Jackie. I took the pet, glb off of the chocolate syrup bottle and opened the top. My hand was shaking, I just couldn't do it. I took in a deep breath,"Come on Genesis...." I thought to myself. I went ahead and poured the chocolate syrup all over Jackie's afro. I heard Michael giggling from behind me. I let out a smile. "Shutup Mike you're gonna make me laugh too..." When I turned to look back at Jackie I saw him moving. I quickly closed the top, boven of the syrup and crawled volgende to Michael. We were both scared and breathing uncontrollably. Michael looked at me,"Oh no...he's waking up!" We both heard Jackie yawning. "Come on! We gotta hide!" Michael whispered. Michael grabbed me door the arm and led me to the closet. It was really dark in there. I couldn't see a thing. I could hear Michael breathing, I could tell he was scared.
On the other side of the closet u could hear Jackie saying something. Then all of a sudden we both heard him yell. Michael and I jumped a little. We heard footsteps coming towards the closet. I closed my eyes. The closet door sprung open and we saw Jackie standing there mad as can be. I guess he didn't see me because he picked Michael up door his t-shirt collar. I could see Michael and Jackie from the closet. It was open just a crack. Michael was kicking and screaming,"Ugh! Jackie let me go!" Chocolate syrup was dripping down Jackie's face,"IT WAS YOU! WHY DID u DO THIS TO ME!" Michael didn't answer, he just kept on struggling trying to loosen up Jackie's grip. Jackie was getting madder,"ANSWER ME!!!" Michael flinched a little at his words,"BECAUSE I FELT LIKE IT JACKIE!" Michael kicked Jackie in the stomach making him scream in pain. Jackie let go of Michael's overhemd, shirt making Michael fall to the ground on his knees. Jackie yelled at him,"YOU LITTLE TWERP!!!" Michael was about to get up off the ground, but then the bedroom door sprung open.
Joseph was standing there. Michael's eyes got big, he looked really terrified. Joseph looked around the room,"WHAT THE HELL IS GOING ON HERE!?!" Jackie managed to say,"IT WAS MICHAEL! HE DID THIS TO ME!!!" Joe looked over at Jackie and then at Michael,"Why are u doing this kind of shit!?!" Michael didn't say anything. He just had his head down in shame. Joe looked Michael dead in the eyes. Michael's eyes got watery,"Joseph! Please don't!" Joe unbuckled his riem and took it off. He had it in his hand like a weapon,"Come here Michael!" Michael slowly backed away,"JOE! PLEASE!"
