At the house
Michael woke up an hour after Aislinn left and didn't see her. 'Where is she? Wait, what's this?' He thought picking up a note. He read it aloud. "Dearest Michael, I left with Kelly and Cory to get some things done before the wedding tomorrow. I hope you like what I did once you see it. I'll also be staying over at Cory's house for it is tradition that it's bad luck for the groom to see his bride the day of the wedding. Main reason why I'm staying at Cory's tonight, my dress is there. I hope you like the dress, too. It's modest, so you'll like it. Love you lots, my almost husband. With love, Aislinn." Michael smiled. "At least she left a note where I could see it." He told himself. His bachelor party was today and he couldn't wait. He heard knocking at the door and quickly got a shirt on and answered it. "Yes?" He didn't see anyone, but some people jumped out from behind the door. "Jackie, Jermaine, Marlon, Tito! You guys came! Where's Randy?" "He's busy with American Idol, Michael. You know that." Jermaine said. "Oh, right. I forgot. Come on in, guys!" He noticed they came in with boxes of party stuff and chuckled. "Guys, what's in the boxes?" "Party things, Mike. Like..." Jackie pulled out some games. "Guitar Hero!" Marlon shouted and took out another party idea. "Dance Mania! You still have the highest record on it, Mike. No one can beat it, but can you beat your own record?" Tito said. Michael rolled his eyes. "You guys think I can't beat my record? Plug it into the TV. Let's see about that." Michael got his game face on and stretched a bit before dancing.
After the game
It's true and his brothers witnessed it. Michael beat his top score. His brothers cheered and clapped and Michael bowed. "Thank you, thank you." Then they moved on to Guitar Hero. Michael admitted, he loved this game. He was up against Jackie first, because it now became a competition to see who's the King of Guitar Hero. Jackie chose the song and Michael saw it. "Beat It? Really, Jackie?!" "Yeah, Mike. I bought it off the store. That's your surprise from me." "Oh, your on, Jackie!" Then they started the song. Michael had the best solo ever and Jackie was trying his hardest to keep up with him. After the song ended, Michael won. "How did I know you'd win?" Jackie asked. "Because I'm the King of Pop and you love me, bro." Jackie shook his head and chuckled. "That's right." Then Tito and Jermaine went. It was nice seeing the Bass guitarist against the actual guitarist, Michael had to admit. It was pretty funny. According to Jackie, Marlon held the record of being the top guitarist on Guitar Hero. Michael waited for the contest to be over so he could verse Marlon.
After their rumble
It was up to Michael and Marlon. The duel to the death on Guitar Hero. Guess who won? Michael! He actually beat Marlon at his own game. To think he would do that, but he loves his brothers. "And the King of Guitar Hero is...drum roll please?" Jermaine gets out the small bongos and starts beating them and Jackie got out the crown and placed it over Michael's head. "Michael! You are officially the King of Guitar Hero!" Michael took it and smiled, keeping his hand on it. "Thanks so much, guys. You are the best brothers I've ever asked for." "That's not, it, Michael!" Jermaine said. "Huh?" Michael was confused. Jermaine took out a present and gave it to Michael. "This is from all of us brothers." Michael was curious and opened it up. He looked inside and his eyes went wide. "The mike from the stage we were on as the Jackson 5? How did you get it?" Michael took it out and held it carefully. He remembered being on that stage at the age of 9. He loved the mike they used. "I pulled a few strings. And told them that you were getting married, so they let me take it." Michael hugged each and every one of his brothers. "Thank you guys so much. It means a lot to me." "Oh, and look at the bottom, Michael." Marlon said, pointing to something at the bottom of the box. Michael took it out and saw the picture of the family, all together. He was about ready to cry. "Oh my god, guys...the family picture. I haven't seen it in so long. Did mother and Joseph let you guys give this to me?" "Mother did, Joseph wasn't home again." Tito said. "Speaking of mother and Joseph...here." Marlon gave the next box to him. "From mother and Joseph?" They nodded and Michael opened the box. He found a glove, the first record they ever made as the Jackson 5 with Steeltown Records, and the first trophy from the talent show that he won. He saw a letter in there, too. He took out the letter and Jackie was asking him to read it. He nodded and read it. "Dear Michael, I know Joseph may not say it, but he's happy that you're getting married. You know he loves you and that you should never forget that we all love you very much. Janet is a bit jealous of you, but she's happy for you. KC says that she is one of the bridesmaids for Aislinn, so she's excited for the wedding." He started getting tears in his eyes and wiped them away and continued reading. "I hope you have the same happiness with Aislinn that you had with us and your brothers. I can't wait until your wedding, son. I love you very much. With love, your mother, Katherine Jackson and your father, Joseph Jackson." He started shaking and crying. "I have to write them back and tell them that this letter made me cry. Guys, a little help here, please?" They gathered around Michael, giving him a group hug. "Thanks guys. This means a lot. I'll write back tonight and give it to them tomorrow. Since you guys are my groomsmen, and Chris is my best man...where is Chris anyway?" Then they hear a knock at the door and Chris came in. "Sorry I'm late. Had to do something with Jackie Chan. Did I miss the party?" Chris asked a little confused. Michael turned to his brothers and turned back to him, smirking. "No, you didn't, Chris. You made it just in time! Let's go guys! Pump up the music!" Jackie turned on the music and they started dancing around, Michael being oblivious that his phone was ringing.
After about a few hours of partying
They all left, Michael waving goodbye to them and went to check inside the house. No mess, thank goodness, but there was a voice mail on his phone. He picked up and dialed his code and heard the message that was left. "Hey Michael. It's Aislinn. I'm done today, but I'm gonna spend the night at Cory's. You know as well as I do that it's tradition for the bride not to see the groom before the wedding, for it means bad luck. Love you, Michael. Bye." Michael was about to cry yet again, but he texted her and told her that he got the message and was sorry that he didn't answer his phone. She replied back that it was alright if he didn't answer, but just as long as he got the message and her note. He replied to her saying alright and put his phone in his pocket. He had just eaten, and it was around 7 o'clock at night. He got a text from Jackie saying that they'd be by the house tomorrow morning to help him get ready, them being ready themselves. He replied ok and put his phone back in his pocket. He went to the bedroom and got ready for bed. 'It feels weird that I'm not gonna be with Aislinn tonight...but tomorrow is the wedding and I understand that. It's bad luck for the groom and the bride to see each other before and on the day of the wedding. I can handle this.' He thought. He got into bed, in his pajamas, and turned off the light. He turned the bedside lamp off and soon drifted into a good night's sleep.
