"What happened?" Sam asked again, trying to get a fuming CJ to tell him.

"Sam, if you don't want me to hurt you, then stop asking. We're fine." CJ said, trying to stay calm.

"Fine." Sam pouted.

"There he is." CJ said as Toby sped into the driveway.

"Can I go now?" Sam asked.

"Yeah, thanks for coming Sam." Toby said.

"Sure, but I better see some money coming my way." Sam mumbled to himself as he walked back to his car and drove home.

"Hi sweetheart." Toby smiled.

"Don't start with me. We are going to have a long conversation." CJ said too calmly for Toby's comfort.

"Ok, I think I owe you that."

"Oh, you owe me many, many things Toby." CJ grabbed Toby's ear and took him in the house.

"Ow, ow, ow! CJ, please stop pulling on my ear," Toby said as they walked into the living room.

She let go of his ear. "Toby, tell me what is going on."

"I think you should tell me what is going on. First you leave, then I go looking for you, then I call the house and you're there."

She looked him in the eye. "I went to see Ann Stark."

"You did what?"

"I wanted to see if she was really having an affair with you."

"CJ, I told you--"

"Shush. Anyway, she said she tried to hit on you this afternoon and you refuted her."

"I did."

"I know."

"Then why are you still interrogating me about this? I told you a million times, I love YOU, CJ. Not Ann, you." He took her hand. "Why don't you believe that?"

"I'm sorry Toby, it's just that I have had my share of heartbreaks, and I didn't want this to be another one." She squeezed his hand, but not too tightly.

Toby sighed, "I think we're going to need to do a lot of talking for the next few days, to just, you know, get things out in the open."

She nodded, "Yeah, you're right."

"Ok, good." Toby smiled.

"You start." CJ demanded.

"Why do I have to start?" Toby whined.

"Because I said." CJ said.

"Well, I thought we could get some sleep first..."

"Ziegler!"

"Ok, fine." Toby walked around for a little while.

"Let me see...Ok, when I was five year old..."

"Toby, what did I tell you this afternoon?" CJ screamed.

"I forgot." Toby looked around. CJ walked closer and started to move her hand up to grab what she did earlier that day. "Ok..." Toby jumped back.

"What about Ann?"

"She was just there..." Toby said, keeping his distance. "She told me that if I wanted to be with her, I had to marry her. So I agreed. But the day before the wedding, I freaked and ran out on her."

"Why?"

"Because I knew deep down I didn't love her. Now, every time I see her, she uses that against me. She even told Andy that we were sleeping together when we were married."

"Did you?"

"No." Toby yelled. "I loved Andy. I wasn't going to ruin that with Ann."

"And me?"

"CJ." Toby got closer, but keeping a good eye on her hands. "I love you. I think a part of me always has. I want this." Toby smiled.

He kissed her passionately.

"That's what I wanted too," CJ said as she looked at him and smiled. "I love you so much, Toby. I don't ever want to fight like this again." There were tears in her eyes.

"I know, I feel the same way," he said as he rubbed her back. "I love you too." He kissed her again
