Michael informed Gladys that he''ll be back within an hour following his lunch break and obtaining his passport. "Enjoy your lunch break, and I'll make the travels arrangements; as well, as the reservation," Gladys replied. As Michael walked to the parking lot, Quantrell stopped him, so he can ask some questions in regards to running the company in Michael's absence, "Hey, Mike, are going to leave a number where I can reach you," and Michael replied,"I'll have numbers available to you and the rest of the staff before I leave," and he got into into his SUV; in addition, to turning on the ignition and backing out of the parking lot. On his way to pick up Maris, Michael made stop at Kay Jewelers, so he can pick the jewelry set he had ordered for her.
While driving along Sunset Strip, Michael called Maris on his cell phone by way of his earpiece, "Hello," she replied, "Hey, baby, how are you? I'm on my way and I should be at your house within five minutes, and put on something sexy because I've got plans for us this afternoon," replied Michael, "Okay, I'll be waiting for you," Maris also replied and she hung up the phone. Maris couldn't stop thinking about Michael ever since that steamy impromptu lovemaking session in the backseat of his SUV even though it was their first date. As she was getting dressed, Consuela walked into the bedroom asking if she needed any assistance helping her get dressed. "Michael's taking me out to lunch, and he hasn't told me where," Maris replied, "Oh, that's nice, I don't about, but it sounds like Michael is crazy about you, Maris," replied Consuela; in addition, to zipping up her dress. "I don't know, Consuela, but I've fallen deeply in love with him," Maris replied. "Well, Michael does seem to have that effect on women," Consuela replied, while helping Maris with her makeup; in addition, to fixing her hair.
Just Michael drove up to the front gate, he spoke into the intercom, the gate was opened, and drove up to the main house. After parked his car, Michael rang the doorbell, and Consuela let him. "Hello, Consuela, it's good to see you again," he replied, "Hi, Mr. Jackson, how have you been? replied Consuela while letting him in the house. "Can I get you anything, Maris will be down in a minute," inquired Consuela, "Yes, glass of ginger ale would do, " Michael replied, "Would you like ice with that," asked Consuela, "Yes, please," Michael also replied, and he sat down in the living room on the couch while waiting for Maris. Consuela handed Michael his ginger ale, and sat down with Michael while enjoying a nice conversation with him. "First off, whatever happened between you and Maris remains a secret, and I saw the hickeys on her chest and neck, and I've noticed the blood seeping through your shirt collar," Consuela replied, "I know you're in very much in love with Maris, and I know she feels the same way about you, Michael, since she's met you, I've never seen her this happy in a long time. You're good man, Man." "Thanks, I appreciate that," Michael replied, "we didn't plan on that it just happened, she makes me feel like a man, and I can be myself whenever I'm around her." "As a matter of fact, when I got back home, I took long hot shower while standing underneath the water hoping it might stop the burning on my back, and Hannah, my housekeeper, rubbed peroxide all over the scratches," Michael replied.
