    What's with Keni? Why is he leaving Kristen? I understand he wants her to be with kids her own age but why now? Kristen knows it's something else, why isn't he telling her what's wrong?

    Great update!

    Red face A Note:

    @mjj4everinourhearts @barbee0715 @soulmum @Daryll748 @aazzaabb

    Thank you so much for all the wonderful reviews, for the first couple chapters... I wanted to let you know, I thought i had it in me to completely rewrite this story. But with everything going on in my life at the moment, I just don't have one more revision left in me with Jackson Nation. I'm glad i realized it now and not later halfway through the story,

    I wanted to explain why I've been away so much, A year ago on the 15th of May, We lost my Mom's Brother, My Uncle. He was the center of our family. The Rock. Its been alot for everyone to get through this. Been alot of struggles. Also; I've been dealing with some serious medical issues.. I have a surgery coming up. But not to worry, I'm going to continue posting, the original. just with the inconsistencies I mentioned before removed. So please be patient with me. I'll be posting as often as I can.

    I've gone back and reposted the original Introductions/ Prologue and Chapter 1. I encourage you to go back and re-read before moving forward.

    I apologize again for taking so long getting back to My Story!
    Sending lots of MJ Love to everyone,

    Red face Chapter 2 | michael.

    Mon. 6.28.76
    A few days later.
    Michael, sat tapping his foot nervously, slowly glancing up at his reflection in the mirror. He knew rehearsals were starting back next week. He was absolutely dreading the second leg of the summer tour. It wasn’t being on stage or the fans he adored. It was the long exhausting hours of being non-stop on the go, the time spent with Joseph while on tour just scared him. Joe was roughless in his parenting and managing skills sometimes. Had no consideration or respect that his Mother deserved. They had left Motown less than a year ago and signed with Epic Records, Michael was still feeling lost with the change--

    “Michael, mann!” his brother’s voice interrupted his thoughts.

    Startling Michael, out of his tired thoughts. exhaling deeply as glanced up at his doorway, Jermaine laughed,

    “Mother is on line 1 for you!” He told Michael, then walked away. Michael let a deep breath go, reaching over picking up the receiver, pressing 1.

    “Mother!” he breathed greeting her

    It had only been a week since he’d seen his mother and missed her motherly affection that she always shared effortlessly with her children.

    “Miss you, mother!” he said squeezing his eyes closed tightly.
    “Aww, I miss you too!” she replied.
    “How were your brother, his family?” she asked,
    “They are great!” Michael smiled…

    Michael got so quiet,

    Katie knew Michael well enough to know that his mind was on the tour. She wasn’t stupid she knew exactly what went on, while on tour… She wasn’t a fool, Katie knew how her husband acted and the things he did, things he pushed on his own son’s to do, to prove they were men. It was why there was no mothers or sisters allowed to ever go with them on tour and It was nothing new. She’s been in some pretty nasty fights with Joe over what went on while on tour and the fact that Michael never seems to come back the same as when he leaves. Happy and go lucky…

    “So, how are you really?” Katherine asked.

    Michael glanced up out his bedroom window out at the ocean, then back down at his hands, as he held the phone between his right shoulder and ear.

    “I'm okay really!” he replied,
    ”Michael!” Katherine said,
    “Talk to me,” she told him with concern. Michael exhaling deeply…
    “Just thinking about rehearsals and getting back on the road.” He finally spoke softly after a few moments.
    “I thought you might sweetie, But you know things well be alright, don’t you?” she said, asking.

    Michael let a small smile grow, “Yea,” he breathed.

    “Thursday, is the family gathering…” She reminded him gently.

    Michael’s smile grew bigger, he rarely got to see all his family and extended family in one place,

    “And guess what?” Katherine spoke softly.
    “What?” Michael raised up hearing the excitement in his mother’s voice.
    “Kristen arrived yesterday,” she mentioned,
    “Oh yeah?” he replied,

    Thinking nothing of it, they always hosted family and friends who would stop by for a few days. He barely ever got to see anyone of them,

    “Yeah, Keni Nation and his daughter, Kristen, you remember her right?” She asked.
    “Who?” Michael questioned.
    “Michael, thats not funny, you know who they are!” Katherine said. Michael giggled.
    “I Maybe know of them, yes from all the stories you’ve told. We were supposedly friends as babies, but then they moved away.” Michael said. “No, we moved away…” She corrected.

    “Michael, you two were inseparable!” She reminded him.
    “RIght, so everyone says, Its been what 8 years, I was what 10…? “ He remarked asking
    “My life has been a blur since we started performing, even since moving here.” Michael tried to remind her.

    Katherine realized he was right, He's done nothing but work since he was 6…

    “Then you’ll have plenty of time to get to know her,” Katherine said.
    “What does mean?” Michael asked.
    “Mother?” Michael asked glancing up,
    “It seems that Keni has been offered a job, there is no family left in New York that Kristen can stay with. He don’t want her alone,” she said.

    “Okay, I can understand that.” He said,
    “But, why not take her with, it would he a great learning experience for her!” Michael added.
    “That’s just it, Michael… Kristen has grown up on the road just like you, He thinks it's time for her to be in one place for a while, make friends, be normal.” she told her son.

    “She just graduated High School, “ she mentioned.

    Michael exhaled deeply. It wasn’t that he had completely forgotten Kristen, its just been so long. They were both so little when they left--

    “Keni really wants his daughter to have a real family environment.” his mother interrupted his thoughts.

    Michael laughed at the thought, a family environment…

    “With our family? Its anything but normal.” he chuckled.
    “Alright, smarty pants.” She said.
    “Sorry mother, but really.” he said smiling.
    “So maybe, you two can be friends again.” she remarked.
    “how long will she be with us?” Michael asked
    “As long as need be!” His Mother replied.
    “Michael, she's so sweet, such a beautiful woman now.” She told her son.
    “I got it mother, I can’t wait to see Kristen again!” He breathed.

    After a few more minutes of talking, he said goodbye to his mother, that he would see her tomorrow.

    Michael shook his head as he gets up from the table leaving his room. His thoughts began to wonder… he started to think of Kristen, he really did barely remember her, there was this little girl who he use to play with everyday. Then everything changed when he started doing rehearsals and performances all over Indiana with his brothers,
    When they left for California,he didn’t see her anymore after that..He let another breath go nervously.

    ~
    Thursday. 7.01..
    It’s my 18th birthday and Dad wasn’t here to share my day with me, hes been gone almost a week today. I just feel like i’m moving in slow motion this morning as I helped Katherine get ready for this Jackson family day in Malibu. I just had this nagging feeling lately that something was terribly wrong with dad, for a while now. Something he just couldn’t bring himself to tell me. Something he had to deal with on his own, uprooting me from my home in New York made it transparent. But all i could do is let go of deep breath and wait for him to be ready to tell me.

    Katherine is been very kind to me though, welcoming me back into their lives, treating me like I was never gone. Like a daughter. The last week in the Jackson home have been very interesting. I’ve learned allot of different things about Michael from the family. I learned very quickly that Michael was the Center of this family, they all depended on him deeply. I couldn’t help but think what kind of pressure and stress that must be on him. But, according to Randy though, it's something Michael’s been dealing with since he was just 11. I felt sad, I mean it great that they have had such success and early on in life, but it just don’t seem fair that his childhood was stolen away. I couldn’t even imagine the life that was yet still ahead of him in this industry.

    The phone ringing snapped me back out of my thoughts,

    “Kristen sweetie, can you get that?” Katie asked busy with making frying chicken for the potluck…
    “Sure!” I smiled, getting up from the dining table where I was cutting vegetables for Katie.
    “Maybe its dad.” I muttered as I walked just inside the kitchen on the left side where the phone was mounted over the counter top just under the cabinet…

    Picking up the receiver on the third ring,

    “Hello, Jackson Residence!” I greeted the caller.
    “Who’s this?” A soft voice on the other end asked,
    “Will you called here, who’s this?” I asked sarcastically…
    “Michael!” he answered,
    “Oh, Hi!” I felt winded hearing his sweet voice for the first time…
    “Hi!” he said so softly
    “Is Mother around?” he asked,
    “Ah,” I breathed as I turned to face Katie.
    “Yes, but she’s busy frying chicken!” I replied, trying to remember how to breath.
    “Alright!” He got excited. Causing me a giggle.
    “Can you tell mother, to please hurry, you're running late!” he said softly…

    I glanced down at my watch, it was nearing 10am… Katherine had been up cooking since 5 this morning. Trying to get enough chicken cooked up for the everyone who was expected to turn up at family day.

    “Sure, no problem!” I answered…
    “Talk to you later!” I added
    “Wait!” he gasped,
    “Yeah?” I asked gently
    “You haven’t told me your name?, Is this Kristen Nation?” he asked playfully.
    “And how do you know of this Kristen?” I asked playfully back, Michael smiled to himself, this girls voice was beautiful…

    “Mother told me about her!” he replied,
    “She’s just this girl, I use to know… “ He added. I let another laugh go.
    “Mother says this girl is sweet and Beautiful!” he added, I looked down at the counter top, smiling to myself…”Nothing like i would remember her to be.” He added.

    I felt my smile grow, at his playfulness.

    “Will, Mr. Michael Joe Jackson, You’ll just have to wait and see for yourself!” I informed him playfully, then hung up the phone…

    Michael smiled to himself as he hung up the phone, He didn’t know what came over him to flirt like that, especially with someone he certainly hadn’t seen since they were kids. But there was something about her, about her voice…

    “Michael, baby!” a familiar female voice squealed from behind him, he turned around seeing his ex-girlfriend,

    “Tatum!” He gasped surprised, he hesitantly greeted her with a hug. Honestly shocked to see her…

    Rebbie who arrived at Jermaine’s around 8 this morning, stood next to her baby brother in the grand living room. looked at each him, shaking head. She couldn't stand Tatum, Michael raised up,

    “What are you doing here?” Michael asked shocked to see her, considering she broke up with him months ago, prior to the first leg of their summer tour…

    “Was that Kristen you talked to?” Rebbie asked curiously
    “Ah, Yeah, lest I think so!” Michael smiled, she sounded so sweet…
    “Kristen? Who’s Kristen?” Tatum asked instantly becoming jealous.
    “Some silly girl Mother took in, gave her a home!” Latoya spat, everyone glanced in the direction of the voice, Latoya was standing in the doorway, with her arms crossed over her chest. She had showed up the night before just to get away.

    “C’mon Latoya you sound bitter!” Rebbie remarked,
    “Why shouldn’t I be? The house is constantly full all the time, now some girl we don’t know from adam anymore is moved in!” Latoya complained.

    “We do know her, since she was born!” Rebbie reminded her silly sister.

    Michael and Tatum watched them banter back and forth arguing.

    “Just shut up, Toy. count your blessings!” Michael raised his voice in annoyance…

    Latoya huffed in anger, storming off…

    ~
    I stood smiling to myself, Damn he even sounded as sweet as they described…

    In the dining room, Katie Glanced over seeing the incredible smile on Kristen’s face as she hung up the phone. It caused Katie to smile,

    “Who was on the phone?” Katie asked me as she walked back into the kitchen,
    “Huh? Oh, Michael!” I replied coming back to reality, turning to face her, she catching a glimpse of a smile slowly forming again…

    “And?” she asked smiling big.
    “And he said to tell you, Please hurry, you're running late…”
    “Oh he did, did he?” she replied laughing. “That Boy.” she muttered

    Katie went back to her last skillet of chicken. I went back to the veggies for the huge salad I was building. We had made two german chocolate cakes and cornbread. Everyone else was supposed to be bringing other sides and desserts also.

    It had been nearly an hour since Michael called, Katie and I finally finished preparing the food,
    We got everything loaded up with Jesse’s and Clara’s help. Got loaded up leaving the house, Jesse drove Clara, Katie and Me. Randy and Janet went with Rebbie this morning.

    It was about a 40/45 minute ride to Malibu, we came to this grand gated house. I felt my mouth fall open as I glanced up seeing this house. The gate opened for us, Jesse drove through parking. I hesitantly got out of the car, everywhere i looked there were people.

    “Kristen?” Katie asked joining me on the left side of the car.
    “Huhh?” i gasped.
    “You okay?” she asked,
    “Ah yeah,” I replied. “You sure its okay for me to be here?” I asked turning towards her.
    “Absolutely. Your family.” She breathed.

    I nodded, taking in a deep breath, then letting it go. Okay… I can do this…

    I helped get the food, followed Katherine into the house, my fell open again, the side was just grand like a mansion. It was all white stone and marble. Adorned with art and of course family photos. We got to the grand kitchen, Katie sat down the cornbread, started greeting family with hugs, saying hello. As i sat down one of the chocolate cakes.

    “And this,” she gestured towards me,
    “This is Kristen!” Katherine told everyone,
    “Kristen, this here is my mother, Martha!” She smiled from ear to ear introducing us. Causing me to smile, “Ma’am,” I greeted nodding, “Ma’am?” She repeated.

    “I’m Gramma, don’t you forget it!” She said pulling me into a big hug. I smiled, hugging her back. She raised up breaking our embrace. “I remember you when you were little girl.” she said. I smiled slightly, I was having trouble remembering her. I do remember she use to live in Chicago…

    The smells through the house was enough to make anyone hungry!

    “Mmm… Mother, dinner smells so good!” Jackie walked into the kitchen,
    “Thanks baby!” she kissed his cheek,
    “Kristen helped…” she informed him.
    “Really?” Jackie asked looking at me, I nodded smiling…
    “She made the salad and dressed the cakes and whipped up the cornbread all while i worked on the chicken!” Katherine informed him further.
    “Wow, I can’t wait to taste it all!” He replied with a grin..

    Family was starting to gather, Katie had said this was something they tried to do yearly, she loved gathering her children, grand children and family just for dinners or brunches whenever a free moment would present itself. I just smiled in reply. I understood the urgency to gather together whenever able. Because work was crazy and there was never any time to spare.

    Hearing the laughter in the house from all the voices and seeing all the cousins, kids and grandchildren running around. It was so surreal to be there and witness what really went on behind the gates of the family. The brother’s were introducing me to everyone. It wasn’t just family, friends were showing up also. Meeting a lot of people in the business. It was nothing at all what the media portrayed and made them out to be. I’ve learned the last week, This family was as normal as a family under these circumstances could be. Katherine tried her best to keep them all grounded…

    “They’re here…” Randy yelled out, referring to Kristen as he jetted towards her, grabbing her by the hand gently.

    Yanking me back to reality, as he pulled me from the counter in the kitchen. Pulling me behind him as he ran through the dining room to the foyer, it was hard to see him at first, with everyone gathered around him, welcoming me to the family, I smiled graciously, shaking hands, returning hugs and saying hello.

    “Damn!” Randy expressed, I laughed…
    “What is it?” I asked, through the crowd.
    “His DAMN ex-girlfriend is here, too!” Randy spat,
    “Girlfriend?” I asked, raising up on my toes, trying to see who he was speaking of. .


    “Yeah, Tatum O’Neil, my god she’s a witch!” Randy said in one breath…

    Oh he meant Michael, I had forgotten about her. I do remember something to the effect in tiger magazine last year. that he was dating her.

    “C’mon,” Randy said, pulling me in and out through everyone, through the sliding glass door out onto the patio. I exhaled, “Thanks I needed some air,” I breathed. “Forget them!” he said pulling out my chair for me…

    “Want to take a walk on the beach?” he asked.
    “Ah, maybe later I’m supposed to be helping your mom.” I told him.
    “Okay.” He replied in a melancholy tone. As his face fell with disappointment.

    I just smiled,

    “What is it?” I asked seeing the look on his face.
    “Its just we’ll never get through that bunch, so we’ll wait till they fall in for lunch!” he informed me,
    “Oh I see,” I didn’t mind, the foyer was really full of family members,

    So Randy and I sat and talked for a few moments, he took the time to warn me about Tatum. What type of person she really was, I had always heard she was a witch, so this wasn’t news to me. It just confirmed what I had heard…

    Then Katherine walked out onto the patio,

    “There you are sweetie.” She said, i stood.
    “I’m sorry, I just needed some air.” I told her.
    “Thats alright, sweetie!” She said.
    “Kristen, will you help Clara and I sit out the food?” she asked,
    “Absolutely!” I answered, getting up…
    “I’ll save your seat!” Randy remarked,
    “You too, Randall, get up make yourself useful!” She told Randy.
    “Okay!” I he replied, I had the feeling Randy was very sweet on me…

    Walking back into the house, I let a deep breath go. I felt overwhelmed weighing through the family again. into the kitchen, Clara had set out a big stack of paper plates.

    “Help me set up the dessert table?” she asked gesturing towards the far counter with free space. on the left. “Sure.” I breathed.

    I walked over grabbing two pies, walking back into the counter sitting them down. family had started falling in and getting plates. Tito & Dee dee grabbed a plates first. Then Janet she was inline on the opposite side of him. Then Jackie, his wife. Finishing up the dessert table, I glanced up as i turned around and the food line had gotten bigger, the line went on for days… I hadn’t even noticed that Michael was in there, I started to grab another cake and move it, when Katie called out at me,

    “Kristen?” Katie said,

    I looked back over my left shoulder, glancing up, seeing Michael.



    My heart raced, I slowly turned around, it felt like time stood still for a moment as I looked into his big chocolate eyes…



    Michael heart was pounding at the sight of her as she came towards them. Noticing her eyes first, made him feel breathless. They were so golden in color, he’d never seen anyone with such an eye color. she was definitely beautiful, not the little girl they left behind.

    “Hi!” Michael finally spoke breaking the silence between us,
    “Hi.” I couldn’t believe he was actually standing there, he was so unbelievably gorgeous, his big beautiful smile, made my heart skip a beat…

    “Kristen?” he asked dumbfounded, “Yea!” I answered giggling slightly…

    Katherine smiled as his brothers started laughing at his reaction.

    “Stop!” She swatted at her older sons,
    “Shew, let them get re-acquainted!” she gestured for them to get.

    I slid my right hand into his, gently. Goodness his hand is so soft and warm to the touch And big. He pulled me into a sweet hug, I returned it…

    “Its nice to see you, finally!” he said holding me, his arms we’re so loving.

    Michael exhaled instantly remembering her hug, kind and loving. Made him feel safe. He didn’t want to let her go, there was something about her, he instantly felt love. Kristen felt comfortable, he felt safe with her, something he rarely felt with anyone.

    He raised up breaking our embrace, then leaned in kissing my left cheek, I smiled, His eyes are glued on mine, as much as mine we’re on him as he raised up slowly…

    “MICHAEL!!!” a female voice interrupted us, startling Michael he jumped, both of us looked over in union, there she was, Tatum O’Neil…



    (Introducing, Tatum O'Neil.)

    She had gotten the entire family’s attention now with all eyes on us, we looked back at each other,

    “Will I should finish helping Katherine, I’m sure everyone is hungry.” I muttered.

    Then turned away from him, putting my attention back to the task at hand. I felt really embarrassed I reacted that way to him. He has a girlfriend, for crying out loud!

    I seen him step up next to me, start to pick up two dishes of sides as the room started to fill with Lunch chatter again.

    “Its alright, you don’t have to help!” I said sweetly, glancing into his eyes,
    “Thanks, but your not my servant!” he said, softly…
    “Michael, let her do her job!” Tatum yelled out, getting everyone’s attention again, Tatum looked around at everyone,

    “What? Isn’t she the new help here?” Tatum asked bluntly, I lowered my eyes from Michael’s,

    Latoya who had just join the family in the kitchen, burst into loud laughter…

    “Why don’t you sit down and shut up, Tatum, You too, Toy!” Marlon yelled in a blunt tone…

    Michael turned his attention back to me, with an apologetic face,

    “You're not hers either!” Michael informed me with a look of embarrassment.

    I turned away, picking up my last two desserts, walking them over to the counter top. While Clara And Katherine finished uncovering the rest of the food. She was the co-housekeeper, but not in the sense where she was the maid, She helped Katherine run the house. keep Katie on time made sure things got done, she was more like Katie’s Assistant, She helped out everywhere and was considered family. I learned that this last week too. I completely understood with having such a house full like this constantly.

    “Kristen!” Michael said, I turned towards him, “Yea?” i asked.
    “This is my brother, Jermaine and his wife Hazel!” He said, I smiled nodding, shaking their hands.
    “Kristen, welcome to our home!” Hazel pulled me into a hug.
    “Thank you!” I replied, returning the hug. Breaking our embrace.
    “Jermaine, Remember Kristen?” He asked.
    “Yes, you were a tiny tot then!” he answered. Leaning in peaking my cheek.
    “Guilty!” I replied.
    “You're certainly not now.” he remarked raising up. I smiled hesitantly.
    “C’mon you guys grab a plate..” Katherine intervened telling Jermaine and Hazel.
    “Welcome, again!” Hazel said as Jermaine was already dishing up a plate.
    “Thank you, really!” I smiled. She walked away getting a plate.

    Everyone was plating up, then falling out of the kitchen through the dining room out of the sliding glass door outside onto the beach. Where several picnic tables were set up for everyone to eat.

    “MICHAEL!” Tatum yelled for Michael, once more waiting at the door.

    He glanced back at me, “I’m sorry!” he muttered. “Its okay, go!” I breathed gesturing my head. He smiled. Taking both plates in his hands walking outside with Tatum.

    “Kristen, sweetie, grab a plate before it's gone!” Katie told me, I smiled grabbing a plate.

    I grabbed a chicken breast, with a scoop of smashed potatoes, some salad, a piece of cornbread and avocado. There was a mess of sides, but there just wasn’t enough room on the plate, I would just have to come back later. Grabbing a cold Dr. pepper from the ice chest on the patio, I left down the steps onto the sand.

    “Kristen!” Randy waved, I smiled.

    I wish he would stop doing that, so that everyone would stop looking at me. I walked over taking a seat at the picnic tables that were put together for Katherine’s family, Janet, Michael, Tatum, Latoya, Rebbie, her husband, Jackie and his wife, Tito and Dee dee, Marlon and his wife and Randy. Sitting down in the only stop avaliable, which was between Janet and Randy.

    “Lunch looks great!” Michael mentioned glancing up at me from directly across the table..
    “I only helped.” I replied.
    “Your mom is a fantastic cook!” I added.
    “That she is!” He agreed.

    Then took put his fork into the small pile of green beans and bacon on his plate, I watched as he took a bite of them. A smile grew across his face,

    “Mmm, that’s so good!” he breathed, causing me to smile…
    “Ms. Kristen made it!” Katherine spoke up, Michael looked over at me,
    “Its really good!” he breathed.
    “Thanks!” I replied. I seen Tatum narrow her eyes at me,

    Randy surely wasn’t kidding about Tatum, she was the only one besides Latoya this last week who made me feel like complete worthlessness. I suddenly felt someone touch my left side at my waist, I turned glancing down. then smiled to find baby Taryll standing there,

    “Hi, little man!” I said, He smiled his tiny smile at me, it melted my heart, getting uncle Michael’s attention. I felt his sweet gaze on me again,

    As Taryll held his hands up at me,

    “Aww… he wants auntie Kristen!” Michael giggled as I scooped Taryll up into my arms sitting him across my lap,

    “Hey, sweet baby boy!” Michael made over his nephew,

    I touched his tiny chubby cheek with the back of my index finger, causing Taryll to smile. Taryll yawned, laid his left cheek against my right shoulder and neck. I suddenly heard this ‘Aww’ around the table. I smiled big, rocking Taryll as I caressed his backside,

    “You want me to take him so you can eat?” Deedee asked,
    “No, no, he’s fine,” I answered…
    “You go ahead and eat.” I told her,

    Everyone went back to their conversations, Soon Taryll had falling off to sleep in my arms. I managed to eat enough food to get full. I caressed Taryll’s back, Michael glanced over at me allot.

    “So, you love babies?” I heard Michael ask, I turned my attention to him,
    “Absolutely! They are a beautiful gift!” I answered, Michael’s face lit-up bright in response to my words…

    “Ha! Right!” I heard Tatum,

    letting out a puff of air muttering it under her breath, but Michael and I both heard her. We both glanced at her in union, she rolled her eyes at us and went back to her Lunch. Both looking back at each other in disbelief…

    “I’m sorry!” Michael silently moved his lips to me,
    “Its ok!” I mouthed back silently to him, I got up from the table.
    “You ok, Kristen?” Deedee asked,
    “Yeah! I’m just going to take him inside, where it's more quiet!” I said almost choked up.

    “You sure? I can do if you want?” Tito asked,
    “No, its alright! sit here visit with family!” I replied softly leaving the table,

    Michael felt bad, he seen that Tatum’s pure meanness, had upset Kristen almost to tears…

    “She’s so sweet!” Tito said, once Kristen left the table,
    “She is a doll, very helpful!” Katie added,
    “Right, Sweet!” Tatum muttered under her breath, again,

    But Michael and everyone heard her this time. It was the last straw for Michael, he got mad. standing up grabbing Tatum by her right arm,

    “That’s it!” he muttered,

    Picking her up off her seat,

    “MICHAEL!” she yelled as he walked her across the beach, back up towards the house, inside.
    “Michael stop pushing me!” She said to him as they reached the foyer by the front door,
    “OUCH, MICHAEL!” she screamed pulling loose from his grasp,
    “That’s it Tatum, I’ve had enough of your snide remarks, You don’t even know Kristen!” Michael raised his voice,

    “I Know enough, she nothing but trash, she’s beneath us!” Tatum shot back,
    “No, Tatum she’s not!” Michael gasped.
    “How do you know?” Tatum asked,
    “Is she your secret lover?” she asked sarcastically,
    “WHAT?” Michael asked becoming flustered…
    “Are you sleeping with her?” Tatum asked next in a blunt tone…
    “WHAT?” Michael asked again, hurting from everyone of her impure accusations
    “Will, Your not sleeping with me!” she remarked. Michael glanced around he didn’t want anyone knowing thier business. “Are you kidding me with this?” he asked. Glancing back up at her.
    “I’m not sleeping with anyone!” He breathed.

    “C’MON MICHAEL, I SEEN HOW YOU LOOKED AT HER IN THE KITCHEN, LIKE YOU TWO HAVE BEEN LOVERS FOR EVER…” she raised her voice once more.

    “Like you have a HIStory with her!” She added.
    “I DO HAVE A HISTORY WITH HER, WE’VE BEEN BESTFRIENDS SINCE BIRTH!” He Yelled back.

    Tatum stood quiet as Michael’s Mom, brothers & sisters gathered at the entrance concerned, hearing the yelling all the way outside.

    “What are you even doing here, Tatum? You broke up with me remember?” Michael turned the tables on her, instead of answering her ridicules, childish questions about his love life…

    “I, I… I…” Tatum stuttered,
    “See… you don’t even know, You can’t just say Because I love you Michael, Want to be with you. You don’t have one lovable bone in your beautiful body, Tatum!”

    Michael told her almost choked up, knowing she was just too young and just didn’t understand the first thing about being in a real loving relationship yet…

    Tatum didn’t say a word, she just crossed her arms across her chest,

    “Its just over, Tatum! your not ready for this… You need do some growing up and learn to respect and love others & yourself before trying to be in a real relationship!”

    Michael added as tears escaped his eyes, his heart broke in two being put through another breakup with her. Michael opened the front door for Tatum, lowered his eyes from hers, waiting for her to leave. she uncrossed her arms,

    “FINE!!!” she yelled stomping out of the house, like a small child, Michael closed the door behind her….

    Turning back, Michael glanced up seeing his family standing in the doorway and spilling out into the foyer.

    “Go back to your lunch everyone, the show is over!“ He muttered, he was pretty much used to being humiliated in front of his siblings. Joe had done it so much…

    He walked towards the staircase, when he glances over towards the living room entrance, seeing Kristen. He stopped in his tracks, lowering his eyes from hers, feeling even more humiliated knowing she must of heard everything…


    I exhaled, Watching Michael walk up the stairs as his siblings turned their attention back to me. I lowered my eyes, leaving the entrance, I walked across the grand living room back to the couch where Taryll was resting so peacefully.

    I felt so embarrassed, I felt my cheeks burn with humiliation. I ended up hiding staying right there watching over Taryll. I sat next to the couch on the shag carpet, touching and caressing Taryll’s tiny right hand that was extended out in front of his resting body. Taryll slept about an hour then woke up as Taj and some other of the small children were being put down for a nap.

    ~
    hours later, Michael came down stairs feeling a little hungry, he didn’t really get the chance to eat all his lunch before. He came to the sliding glass door, glancing out seeing everyone standing, talking, drinking, eating, carrying on while the kids ran around playing. Michael walked into the kitchen,

    “Hey, honey!” Katie greeted her son, she’d just finished making herself a cup of tea.

    Michael smiled slightly as he grabbed another plate, “Hungry?” Katie asked..

    “Yeah!” Michael replied almost voiceless, hearing the pain in her son’s voice, she walked over pulling him loving hug. Michael returned his mother's love, he really needed that hug.

    “Hey, Mother we’re going to get going, the boys are getting fussy.” Tito interrupted,

    Michael and Katherine raised up, breaking their embrace…

    “Aww are my babies fussy?”

    Katherine took Taj into her arms, trying to love on him, but he wasn’t having it. With a pouting expression. Katherine loved on her grandbabies anyways, then handed them back to Mama and daddy. Said her goodbyes.

    “Ok, sweethearts!” Katie hugged Tito And Deedee goodbye,
    “Its always good to eat your cooking!” Tito told his mother. Causing her to smile,

    They left…

    “I’ll make you a plate, Why don’t you go keep Kristen company.” she suggested.
    “Oh mother, i’ve been embarrassed enough today, dont make me face her.” He said.
    “She was embarrassed, too!” Katie reminded.

    Michael exhaled deeply, “Alright, where is she?” he asked handing her his plate.
    “The Grand living room!” she replied.

    Michael left the kitchen walking through the dining room. Walking in around the corner, glancing over Michael stopped in place. Seeing Kristen asleep sitting curled up on the couch. A smile grew on his face, he felt so breathless, she was unbelievable…

    Kristen stirred slightly, waking up…

    I sat up on the couch, rubbing my eyes.

    “Hey!” a soft voice, startling me I gasped, glancing up there Michael stood…
    “Sorry..” he giggled slightly… I smiled slightly..
    “Hi…” I replied hesitantly
    “Sorry,” I breathed yawning,
    “No, its okay.” He said, as I sat up.
    “long day?” he asked,
    “Yea, I didn’t sleep well the night before nervous about today.” I told him.
    “Meeting the whole Jackson clan can be very overwhelming.” he replied sitting down a cushion over from me on the couch.

    “Your not kidding..” I breathed.

    Michael felt bad about Tatum’s outburst.

    “Kristen?” I heard Michael’s voice come closer as I felt him scoot next to me on the couch,

    “I‘m really sorry about earlier!” he apologized, I felt him touch my left shoulder. I looked over into his sweet face, he had a look of regret in his eyes…

    “Yeah, me too!” I said almost in a whisper.

    I turned my attention back to my lap, breaking eye contact with him again. it grew quiet between us again, I didn’t know what to say, I felt awkward after what happened.

    “Here you go sweethearts!” Katherine entered the room, breaking the silence. Sitting down a tray with two plates of chicken, with all the fixings, two small plates with a slice of german chocolate cake for each of us. And a tall glass of milk.

    “Goodness…” I breathed.
    “Whats all this?” I asked.
    “Well, neither one of you got to eat that much at lunch, so have some dinner.” Katie told us.

    I smiled,

    “Thank you, Katherine!” I said.
    “Thanks mother!” Michael breathed.
    “It all looks so good.” he added.

    She left us to eat… we sat and talked some while we ate. About an hour after we ate, Katherine was ready to get home and get her kids in bed, it was getting late. Michael went home with us, walking into the house back at the compound. I was exhausted.

    “I’m exhausted, I’ll see you in the morning!” I said, standing near the railing of the staircase, glancing over into his big eyes.

    “Okay!” he breathed, I started up the steps.
    “Goodnight!” I breathed,
    “Night!” He smiled sweetly.

    Michael walked into the Kitchen where his mother was putting leftovers away, Michael wanted to say so much to Kristen, but he still felt so embarrassed.

    Katherine walked over checking the voicemail machine, had one message blinking. She pressed the playback button.

    “Hey Its Keni, I just wanted to call and wish my daughter a Happy Birthday, today.”

    Katherine and Michael looked at each-other quickly,

    “Please have her give me a call!” Keni added, the message ended with a beep.
    “She didn’t mention her birthday once, today!” Michael breathed.
    “No she didn’t!” Katie exhaled feeling bad.

    But, she knew Kristen was just being respectful because of their religion and beliefs.

    “Where is she?” Katie asked,
    “She went up to bed!” Michael replied.
    “Okay, She's had a long overwhelming day, so I’ll talk to her about this tomorrow.” Katherine said in deep thought. “Okay.” Michael breathed in deep thought.

    Thank you so much for all the wonderful reviews, for the first couple chapters... I wanted to let you know, I thought i had it in me to completely rewrite this story. But with everything going on in my life at the moment, I just don't have one more revision left in me with Jackson Nation. I'm glad i realized it now and not later halfway through the story,

    I wanted to explain why I've been away so much, A year ago on the 15th of May, We lost my Mom's Brother, My Uncle. He was the center of our family. The Rock. Its been alot for everyone to get through this. Been alot of struggles. Also; I've been dealing with some serious medical issues.. I have a surgery coming up. But not to worry, I'm going to continue posting, the original. just with the inconsistencies I mentioned before removed. So please be patient with me. I'll be posting as often as I can.

    I've gone back and reposted the original Introductions/ Prologue and Chapter 1. I encourage you to go back and re-read before moving forward.

    I apologize again for taking so long getting back to My Story!
    Sending lots of MJ Love to everyone,
    K. :cheeky:
    No worries, Visions ♥ My sincere condolences for you and your family! I wish you a lot of courage and strength and good luck for your OP. You come back in your own time, yeah! I know what life can throw at you :blink: Losing someone dear can really knock you off balance but just hang in there, Hun and all will be alright :better:

    Edit: I do love chapter 2. It brings me back to my childhood where the Jackson Family 'felt' like an "extended" family! I hope they become good friends ♥ Thumbs up on the research of the family!
