Michael had a made a reservation for 8p.m. at Martoni's, he had the owner reserve a special seating area for him and Maris; in addition, to chilled wine to be served by the Maitre'd and candlelight added to in order to make the romantic. As he drove in town, Michael called the restaurant on his Blackberry saying he was on his way and they get there within an hour,"Everything's is ready, is there anything we can assist you with, Mr. Jackson," he asked, "No, That will be all," said Michael, and he turned off his cell phone. "Pardon me for repeating myself, but you are so beautiful and I can't take my eyes off of you," as he was driving down on Rodeo Drive, and she was at a loss for words Maris as baffled at the idea that Michael was interestred in her knowing other guys she's dated in the past were embarassed by size.
In Michael's eyes, Maris was special and he wanted to get to know her.
