"Yes, I'm more than ready!" Averi said as she grabbed Michael's hand and started walking to his car. "Later, Dani!"
"Aight A, have fun and don't get her pregnant Michael. We ain't ready for kids!" Dani yelled.
"I'll try not to!" Michael laughed while Averi just rolled her eyes.
Reaching the passenger side of his car, Michael opened the door for her. "After you, my lady." he said in a faux accent. "Why thank you, kind sir." Averi laughed.
She hears Michael's adorable giggle as he walks to the drivers side of his car. He gets in, cranks up the car, and drives off. While riding around the city, they talk, laugh and sing the Motown songs that are currently playing on the radio.
"So Mr. Michael Joseph Jackson," Averi said, "Where are you planning on taking me tonight?" Michael cuts his eyes at me, "Well Ms. Averi Yvonne Wilkins, it's a surprise."
"You know I hate surprises," Averi said as she rolled her eyes, "just tell me boy." She tickled Michael's side.
"Stop I'm driving," he laughed, "and no you're gonna wait this time." Averi huffed as she crosses her arms, "Fine. You get on my damn nerves sometimes." Michael smirked as he grabbed her thigh, "I love you too A."
As they rode further along, Averi took in the scenery. It was a beautiful night with the lights from the different buildings brightening the city. She and Michael rode in a comfortable silence, his hand still gripping her thigh. She turned to look at Michael, who was focused on the road.
"He's so beautiful." Averi thought to herself. She wished that he would realize that about himself. From his big beautiful brown eyes to his gorgeous smile that lights up anyone's day, he was pure perfection in her eyes. She thought about Dani's words from earlier, which they worried her because she doesn't want him to feel smothered by her.
Michael finally arrived to their destination. "We're here!" he sang which snaps Averi out of her thoughts. She noticed all of the cars parked and people walking everywhere. When he finally parked, she noticed different rides and booths. Averi couldn't control her excitement, "Michael, you brought me to the fair!"
"Surprise," Michael smiled, "I knew how much you wanted to come. It's all you been talking about for the past week."
"Thank you, thank you, thank you!" Averi screamed. She climbed in his lap and started kissing him repeatedly. "I love you so much!"
"I love you more," he said, "Now come on let's go! I'm ready to get on some rides!" They got out car and walked hand in hand onto the fairgrounds. It was such a beautiful night, and there were so many people out. Michael even signed of couple of autographs for people. The aroma of the different foods hit their noses making them hungry.
"Man, I'm hungry." Averi said while rubbing her stomach. "Me too, but we can eat later. I'm wanna go on a ride. Race you to that roller coaster over there!" Michael yelled as he released her hand and took off. She laughed as she ran behind him, "Damn, wait for me!"
Michael and Averi have rode every ride at the fair. From the scariest roller coasters to the kiddie rides, they were having the time of their lives. They were going wherever the wind took them, just enjoying each others presence. They couldn't get enough other.
Averi's stomach started rumbling. "Michael," she whined, "I'm gonna starve to death if we don't stop for some food." Michael hugged her from behind and laughed. "Alright, let's get my baby some food. We can stop at that booth, they have pizza over there."
"Yes, the best food in the whole wide world!" Averi said as they walked toward the booth. After waiting in line for around ten minutes, they paid for their slices of pizza. While they ate, they noticed an area where everyone was gathered around dancing to music.
"Now you know we have to go over there after we finish right?" Michael asked. Averi just laughed knowing how much he loved to dance. They've spent whole nights at different discos just dancing the night away. "Of course we do, let's head over there!" she said.
After they finished the pizza, Michael literally pulled Averi to the dance floor. Donna Summer was playing loudly from the speakers, making the atmosphere lively. They were having so much fun dancing with everyone, even though Averi was having trouble keeping up with Michael because his dancing was effortless. He was a dancing machine, spinning and kicking, everyone even formed a circle around him just to watch.
After a couple of songs by Diana Ross, Stevie Wonder, The Bee Gees and Marvin Gaye, "There'll Never Be" by Switch began to play. Michael took Averi in his arms and started to slow dance with her. He sang the words in her ear, causing her to smile. As they rocked to the mellow groove of the song, Dani's words started to creep back into Averi's mind. A lot of what if questions started to form in her mind.
"Michael?" Averi asked worriedly. Michael pulled away with his arms still wrapped around her waist. He looked at her concerned, "Is something wrong baby?"
"Well I— I just—" she looked at the ground as she struggled to get the words out.
Michael lifted her chin, forcing her to look in his beautiful eyes. "Don't be scared. You know you can talk to me about anything beautiful."
Averi sighed. "Well just be honest with me, do you think I smother you? Do we spend to much time together? Are you tired of me?"
Michael looked at her with a shocked expression. "Smothering me? Tired of you? No! Who or what would ever give you that idea?"
"Well when I was talking to Dani earlier, she—" Averi started to say before Michael interrupted her.
"Wait a minute, now you know not to listen to Dani. I like her and everything, but she needs to mind her damn business. She hasn't even been in a long-term relationship ever since I met her!" he said.
"I know that, but I was just wondering. I don't want you to get tired of me. You're such an amazing guy, Michael. You can have any woman in the world, and you chose me. I feel like I don't deserve you at times. I just love you so much." Averi said while looking at the ground. She felt a tear running down her face.
Michael lifted her chin again and wiped the tear from eyes. "Averi, don't you ever talk down on yourself like that. You are the most beautiful woman in the world, and if anyone's lucky, it's me. Hell, I'm the one that doesn't deserve you. You are the light of my life. You're my heart and soul. You complete me. Your love is what inspires me everyday. I love you with everything in me."
"Oh Michael," Averi hugged him, "I love you. You deserve me. You deserve the best in life. You deserve all of my love."
Michael kissed her cheek and pulled away slightly to face her. His arms were still wrapped around her. "I just can't get enough of you. Keep all of your love coming, baby. You don't see me complaining. Don't stop til you get enough."
They both laughed at his song reference. "You know I'll never get enough of you baby!" Averi said.
Michael grabbed Averi and kissed her deeply, topping off their beautiful night.
