Diane walked upstairs to abby's room to see Michael rocking her in the rocking chair that sat in the corner of the room. "She calmed down quick." Diane said. "Yea i think she just wanted to get out of her crib is all." Michael said as he placed Abby on the floor. Abby began to crawl towards diane. "Hey Abby" Diane said sweetly as she bent down to pick her up. "Well i got to go get ready." Michael said as he got up from the rocking chair. "Get ready for what?" Diane asked puzzled. "I have a meeting with frank in about an hour and my ride is going to be here in about 20 minutes." Michael said as he gave diane a quick kiss. "A meeting for what?" Diane asked. "Baby its just business ok." Michael said as he walked into his bedroom and began to get ready. Diane sighed and walked towards Rose's room. "Good morning mommy." Rose said as soon as Diane opened the door. "Good morning sweetie." Diane said as she gave Rose a kiss on her head. "say good morning to your little sister." Diane said as she bent down to Rose's height so she could give Abby a kiss. "Mommy im hungry." Rose said. Diane sighed "Come on lets go make breakfast." Daine replied. "O-tay" Rose said as she walked down the hall and down the steps towards the kitchen. "Rose hold on to the hand rail be careful on the steps honey." Diane said as she began to follow behind her with Abby in her arms. "O-tay mommy." Rose called back. Once Diane made it to the kitchen, she put Abby in her highchair. "Okay Rose what do you want for breakfast?" Diane asked as she stood in front of the fridge. "Waffles!" Rose exclaimed happily. Diane let out a little chuckle "Ok waffles it is." Diane smiled as she bent down to give Rose a kiss. Just then Michael made his way downstairs. "Daddy!" Rose exclaimed as she ran up to him and gave him a big hug and a kiss. "Hows my big girl?" Michael asked as he picked her up. "Good daddy...mommys make waffles!" Rose said happily. Michael laughed. "You love waffles dont you?" Michael chuckled. "Yep!" Rose said happily as michael put her down. "So michael do you want some breakfast before you go?" Diane asked as she cut on the waffle maker. "No thanks me and frank are going to eat on the way to the meeting." Michael replied. "Honey i you sure you dont want some coffee at least?" Diane asked. "No im good." Michael said. Just then there was the sound of a car horn. "Oh i got to go love you baby." Michael gave diane a quick kiss and made his way to the door. "Hey michael will you be home before dinner?" Diane asked. "Yes baby i will love you." Michael said as he walked out the door to the limo.
"Hey Michael" Frank said as michael climbed into the limo. "Hey Frank." Michael replied as he sat next to Frank. "So you ready to start this big tour of yours?" Frank asked. "Um yea i guess." Michael said unsure. "Why do you sound so unsure?" Frank asked. Michael didnt say a word, "Michael...you havent told Diane about this have you?" Frank asked. Michael shook his head. "Why not Michael i mean this is the biggest opportunity that you have had in years." Frank stated. "Yes Frank i know that but how am i suppose to tell my wife and my two children that im going on a 3 year tour and i wont get to see them?" Michael protested. "Look mike i know its going to be hard not being with Diane and your kids but you gotta think, this is a big deal you do this tour you'll be bigger than any superstar out there you hear me...bigger than any." Frank said. Michael sighed. "I just dont know how to tell Diane." Michael said as he rubbed his forehead. "Well Mike you need to tell her soon the tour is due to start at the begin of next month." Frank stated. "I know i just dont know how to tell her." Michael replied.
After a long days work, Michael Finally arrived home. "Hey honey your just in time." Diane said as she was finishing up dinner. "What are we having?" Michael asked. "Chicken and Dumplings" Diane said as she began to set the table. " Rose honey be washing up Dinner is alomost ready." Diane called. "O-tay mommy im coming!" Rose called back. "Remember hold on to the railing when you come downstairs." Michael called. "O-tay daddy!" Rose called as she made her way slowly but surely down the steps. "So honey how was the meeting?" Diane asked as she put Abby in her highchair. "It was...was fine i guess." Michael said. "Is everything ok honey?...you seem a little worried about something?" Diane asked with concern. Michael sighed, "We'll talk after Dinner." Michael said. "Ok honey." Diane said as she finshed setting up the table.
When dinner was over, michael nervously paced back in forth in his and Diane's bedroom as Diane was finishing putting the girls to bed. "How am i going to tell her?" Michael thought to himself as he contiued to pace around the room nervously. Just then Diane walked in the room. "Sorry honey it took a little longer than planned, had a little trouble putting Abby to sleep, whats wrong honey? why so tense?" Diane asked as she walked over to him. "Diane..baby i really dont know how im going to tell you this." Michael said nevously. "What is it? Just tell me." Diane replied. "Well im going on another tour the begining of next month." Michael said. "Honey thats good is that what you were nervous about?" Diane said. "But theres one problem..." Michael said. "Well what is it?" Diane asked. "Its a 3 year tour." Michael replied. "3 years?" Diane repeated. Michael nodded. "Michael you promised you wouldnt go on any tours longer than about a year, why do you wanna break that promise?" Diane asked sternly. "Diane...baby if i do this i will be bigger than any artist out there plus its what i do." Michael said. "Well michael you need to start thinking more of your family now...your a father you have a wife you need to worry about us more than your career." Diane said as she stormed into the bathroom. "Diane baby please lets not start with this...you were the one that told me before Rose was born when i asked you if i should give up my career or not you told me i shouldnt and now you wanna tell me otherwise." Michael said sternly as he stood in the door way of the bathroom. "Well that was before we were married, and had Abby and it was also before you promised me that you would never go on any tours longer than a year." Diane shot back. "Hey dont get mad at me im just trying to make money here" Michael shot back. "Well maybe you should worry more about your family than you do your career!" Diane shot back. Michael had enough, michael grabbed his jacket and phone and stormed out of the bedroom. "Michael where are you going?" Diane said rudely as she followed him down the hall. "Out" Michael said rudely. "Michael get back her now!" Diane shouted at him as she stood at the top of the stairs. Michael gave a angry glare before walking out the door.
Alicia sat in her room listening to Eminmen and cleaning her room when suddenly her dog Ginger began barking downstairs. "Ginger be quiet!" Alicia mom shouted. Alicia contiued to jam out to her music until Ginger began barking once more. "Hey Alicia i think michael's here." Alicia's mom called upstairs. Alicia quickly turned down her ipod speakers and headed downstairs, sure enough michael was waiting at the front door and Ginger was standing right in front of the door barking and happliy wagging her tail. "Ginger get back." Alicia said as she walked to the door. "Hey mj what are you doing here?" Alicia asked. "Me and Diane had another fight" Michael replied. "Man whats gotten into you two?" Alicia asked. Michael sighed, "I dont know Alicia i really dont." Michael shook his head as he took off his jacket and hung it next to the front door. "Mj this is like yalls third Argument in the past week and a half." Alicia said as she and michael began to make their way to the kitchen. "Well...she's upset that im going on tour agian." Michael said as he grabbed himself a water out of the fridge. "So im guessing you told her about the 3 year tour huh?" Alicia replied as she sat on a barstool. "Yes i did and she wasnt too happy, she was saying i should focus more on family than my career." Michael said as he took a sip of his water."Wow thats kinda mean if you ask me, she knew what she was getting into when she married you." Alicia replied. "I know thats what i tired to tell her...but she doesnt listen." Michael stated.............
