Promise (A Michael Jackson Fanfiction; Seque...
Their life together had become perfect-too perfect.
I could feel my blue eyes shining, but not with their usual happiness and love. They were shining with sudden unease, worry, and sadness. "Do you really have to go?" I finally whispered in response, my voice small.
Michael ran his hand over the soft skin of my cheek. "I wish I didn't, but I do," he sighed. "But I won't be gone for long. I'm not letting them keep me away from you like that."
"What if something happens when you're gone?" I asked, my tone thick with worry.
"I won't let anything happen to you two," Michael told me firmly yet softly, leaning his face even closer to mine.
"You promise?" I questioned in a hushed tone, our lips brushing together.
"I promise," Michael responded, but I couldn't help noticing the slight unease that clouded his eyes as he fully pressed his lips against mine.
Michael and Maeve Jackson had the perfect life after Anthony Greene was sent to prison. The next few years had been peaceful and joyous for the newlywed couple. However, as Michael's management forced him to go on tour to promote his latest album, Maeve and their daughter Mirielle were left behind. As the distance between Michael and his family grows, the promise Michael's made becomes looser, to the point where it may be broken, no matter how much purpose is behind it.
