Summary:

Cherell (Sher-el) is the secret wife of Michael Jackson. That is, until she and Michael decide to announce to the world their fourteen year hidden love affair via an exclusive interview hosted by Oprah Winfrey. During this interview, Cherell and Michael travel back in time, as early as the late seventies, and revisit the birth and growth of their love.

Summary:

 

Blair is a twenty-year-old woman who yearns for a normal life. Unfortunately, her life has been anything but that since the death of her parents thirteenth years ago. Since then, Blair and her sister have been under the wings of a possessive devilish man known as Ethan Riley. He owns a billion dollar business called the Dream House where upper-class men can meet their dream girl in person. No man leaves there unsatisfied, but Blair just wants to leave altogether. And the feeling intensifies when she becomes involved with Michael, who is a breath of fresh air and shows her a new way of living. But there are two problems here. Michael has no clue about his woman's night job and Blair is a precious commodity to Ethan, who hates losing things that belong to him. What will happen once truths are revealed and Blair tries to leave the Dream House for good? Will she ever get set free?


(Loosely inspired by Michael Jackson's music video to Who Is It)

Summary:

Scarecrow watched the mystery girl in awe. Was this really Dorothy? No. It couldn’t be. She looked like her in some ways but not enough to convince him. She was a lovely sight but…she wasn’t his Dorothy. However, he couldn’t shake the pull he felt towards her. Had they met before? Who was this girl? And more importantly, why was she watching him in amazement as if she did know him but it had been years since they’d last crossed paths?

“Scarecrow,” she crooned his name with disbelief and bewilderment.

He quickly took a step back and widened his eyes in surprise. Maybe it was her after all. Just somewhat. . .different. “Dorothy?” he asked hopefully. Had she returned to him? Returned to Oz?

The girl slowly got on her feet without taking those hazel eyes off of him. She spoke as if she was lost in wonderment. “I’m not Dorothy. You don't know me."

That crushed him so badly he could not hide the despair on his face. Dorothy was never coming back to him. He lowered his head and let that first tear slide down his cheek. When the girl spoke again, Scarecrow bolted his eyes back up at her again and everything around him went still.

“My name is Beatrice. I’m her daughter.”
