You walked through the doors of the Neverland mansion, instantly being greeted by your boyfriend - Michael. He walked up to you and gave you a chaste kiss before making his way to the sofa. You followed him, sitting down beside the man you adored.
"Hi," you let out a breath, turning your head to look at Michael. He smiled at you, kissing your forehead before pulling away. You had to admit, he looked a little uneasy. "Everything okay?"
He inhaled sharply before shaking his head. "No, there's something I need to tell you," he sighed.
"Okay..." you urged him.
"I...had a discussion with Frank today - and he wants me to leave Los Angeles for a while, just to clear my mind,"
You nodded, frowning a little. "And...?"
"And...I don't know when I'll be back, or if I'll be back," he shook his head. "I can't say - but I won't be here with you for a long while,"
You widened your eyes and stood up. Michael brought his fingers up to pinch the bridge of his nose before standing up as well.
"You're going to...leave me?"
"Please, don't take it the wrong way-"
"Just like that?!" you cut him off. "What about us?!"
"You'd be better of without me, (Y/N)!" he growled. "The media, the invasion of privacy, the tabloids - they'll all be gone if we're not together. And you deserve that peace!"
"I don't care, Michael! I love you!"
Michael shoved his hands into the pockets of his pants and shook his head. From his expression, you could tell that he wasn't going to change his mind. With tears streaming down your face, you grabbed your purse and walked past him - and out of the house.
When you'd gotten back home, you had tossed your things onto the sofa - and made a beeline for your bedroom. Your face was a mess, and so was your mind. You couldn't believe that Michael was just going to leave - and without you.
You laid against your pillow, sobbing as the depression hit you. You didn't want Michael to leave - you wouldn't have been able to keep your sanity if he did.
But despite the amount of crying you did, you knew that it would not change his mind.
