It has been three days since Michael was discharged, Holly has stayed with him at his house taking care of him. Michael and Holly are sitting on his private balcony taking in the beautiful day. "Isn't it a glorious day Michael?" Holly asks. "It truly is." She gets up and looks out. Michael is sitting there admiring her. He suddenly says, "Do you know how gorgeous you are?" Holly turns and looks at him, "Where did that come from?" Michael shruggs his shoulders, "I don't know, just by the way you were standing and the way the light was reflecting on your face." Holly goes and sits on his lap, "Oh that was so sweet of you to say!" They kiss. "And I also want to thank you for taking care of me these past few days." "Well I love taking care of you. Besides your a good patient." Michael laughs, "Well I don't know about that." He looks at her. "But i'm gonna be sad when you go, because you add so much life to this place." "I know but I have to leave sometime." Michael looks the other way in silence.
Holly gets up,"So are you in the mood for lunch now?" He looks up at her, "Actually I was in the mood for something else." He winks at her. "Well I see someone's feeling better" Holly says taken back. "No, i've felt this way for a long time and you know it. Plus you can't stand there and tell me you haven't thought about us too." "Yea, I have." "Then what do you say?" "Alright, but first did you take your medicine today?" Michael gets up and gets a big smile on his face, "Oh you want to play that game!" Holly starts giggling, "No Michael I was being serious have you taken you medicine today?" "No." "Well then i'll go get it." "Ok but you know that's a big romance killer." Holly smiles, "I'll be right back." She walks back in his room. Michael sits back down in his chair, and has this huge smile on his face. He thinks to himself, "YES, finally after all these years its finally going to happen! I just wish I didn't have this bandage on my head. Oh well I know she won't mind." He is positively giddy with excitment.
Holly is thinking to herself as she walks into Michael's bathroom, "I do wanna make love to him, besides he's the only person I know who hasn't hurt me." She grabs his medicine from his drawer, and walks out of the bathroom. As she walks out she notices books just thrown on the floor. She smiles and says under her breath, "Michael you clutter bug!" She goes over and starts to put the books back on the bookshelf. As she picks up one of the books a letter falls out of it, "Oops!" she says. She picks up the letter and it is addressed to Michael from Diana Ross back in 1981. "Hmm, I wonder what this is? I'm sure he won't mind if I read it." She opens it and starts to read, heres what it read.
Dear Michael, I know you have been avoiding me these past couple days by not answering my calls and I don't pretend to know why. Listen I know you must feel guilty for what happend the other night, but it doesn't change the fact that we made love. But if you want you we can forget the other night ever happened and you can just not tell Holly it happened. I know you love her and I don't want to come between you and her. But to be perfectly honest i'm not sorry that it happened, and I hope deep down you feel the same way too. I truly love you with all me heart, Diana
Holly looks up from reading the letter, suddenly a tear drops from her eye. She has mixed emotions between anger, and heart brokeness. She hears Michael say, "Hey what's taking so long?" She walks out to the balcony. "What's this?" She says angerly. He turns his head, "What's what?" "THIS!" She screams. Michael gets up, and turns pale when he sees her holding the letter. "Where did you get that?" "Where you hid it!" "Just let me explain first." "Huh I don't want to hear it!" She goes back inside his room. Michael follows her, "Holly please just listen to me." "Listen to what! How you didn't mean for it to happen, and it will never happen again! Well save your breath I don't want to hear it!" She goes to her bedroom and starts to pack her suitcase. "Holly i'm not gonna deny that what Diana wrote in the letter wasn't true. Yes we did have sex, but it meant nothing. After it happened and I was lying beside her I came to my senses and said 'My God man what are you doing, your not in love with her!' And for the next few days I was so racked with guilt, and then this letter came which made me feel better knowing she would just let it alone, and not bring the subject up. Please belive me in knowing that I never wanted this to happen!" "But you let it happen." Holly is trying very hard to hold back tears. "You know the thing that hurts the worst Michael? Is that all this time I thought you were faithful to me. And that before I left for my tour you said to me that 'Never in a million years would I do that', and I believed you!" Holly keeps on packing her stuff. "Holly stop this packing." "No, i'm going home. But the funny thing is that today I was finally ready to make love to you because I thought out of all the people in my life you have never disapointed me or hurt me, but I guess I was wrong." She closes up her suitcase and starts walking towards the door. Michael stands in front of it, "Holly please don't leave! Because if I don't have you I have nothing!" "Don't worry you have Diana." She pulls off the ring Michael gave her and hands it to him. "Here, I don't want it anymore." Michael starts tearing up, "Holly i'm begging you don't go. I know I made a mistake, but I would never do it again. Please!" "No, because I don't trust you now and if you can't trust you boyfriend that what kind of relationship is it?"
She opens the door and starts to leave. Michael is following her the whole way. "I will do anything to get you to stay, anything" Michael begs. Holly just shakes her head. She goes out to her car and puts her suitcase in the trunk and opens her door. Michael turns her around, "Holly I love you and I don't want to loose you." Holly scoffs and gets into her car, and rolls down her window. "You just remember one thing Michael, it was me who was at the hospital with you not Diana Ross!" Holly drives out of the driveway, leaving Michael standing there. As soon as she pulls out of the driveway, Michael looks down at the ring clutches it and starts crying.
