Toby walked into the White House and was stopped by all the press.

"No comment." Toby yelled as he tryed to get passed them.

"Toby, because of this, are they going to deny you the right to adopt Derek?" One man said with his camera in Toby's face. Toby stopped and turned around. "You know what..." Toby started to move closer to the man as Josh and Sam ran up and pulled Toby away.

"Don't lose it now man." Josh said as they led Toby into Leo's office.

"Where is he?" Toby screamed as he slammed the door.

"Danny got out this morning. Look..."

"No, I have a family I have to protect now. I am not going to let Danny ruin that just because he's jealous."

"I will take care of Danny..." Leo started again.

"No, I'm not going to let him make CJ feel like crap. He doesn't hold any power Leo. I want him taken out, and now!" Toby couldn't control himself. "I want..."

"Toby." Jed walked in.

"Sir." Toby stopped when he saw him.

"Can I see you for a minute?"

"Yes sir." Toby said while following him into the Oval Office.

Jed waited for Toby in the Oval Office. Toby walked in, taking slow, deep breaths. "I'm sorry for yelling out there sir, it's just that..."

"That's not what I wanted to talk to you about, Toby. Come, sit down for a minute.

"Okay." Toby sat down on one of the chairs in the office.

"Now," Jed said as he sat down, "I want you and CJ to know that you do and will have my full support throughout this whole mess. Don't let Danny get to you."

"Sir, thank you for your support, but with all due respect, Danny has those documents, and those documents can stop me from being able to adopt Derek. I don't know what other choice I have in the matter here. I need to do something..."

"You do know you're talking to the President of the United States here, right?" Jed said firmly.

"Yes sir, but--"

"But nothing, Toby. You have a family to take care of right now. Sam, Josh, and Leo will take this thing head on. Right now I want you to go back home and have CJ to come in. She won't believe this coming from you."

"Um, she's engaged to me sir."

"And that will make her believe you how?" Toby stood there and said nothing. "My point exactly."

"Yes sir."

"Go get her. You stay with Derek."

"I will do that. Thank you, Mr. President." Toby then walked out of the Oval Office and back into the hall where he was once again swarmed by the press. He just barely managed to get passed them without biting their heads off. He got in his car and headed home.

Toby pulled into his driveway and sat in the car. The first time something started looking good in his life, and someone was out to ruin it. But he swore that Danny would not get near Derek or CJ. Toby took a deep breath, and then saw Derek open the door and start waving. Toby smiled and waved back and got out of the car.

"Mom, dad's home." Derek yelled.

"Dad?" Toby smiled.

"Yeah, I thought I would get used to it." Derek smiled.

"Oh yeah." Toby ran after Derek and picked him up.

"Yeah." Derek smiled and kissed Toby on the cheek. Then Toby saw CJ come out.

"Derek, go get the drawing you drew for Toby."

"Ok." Derek smiled and went inside.

"Mom and dad." Toby grinned.

"He's been saying that ever since you left. What happened?"

"Well, I hope you're ready for another round." Toby said as he went into the house.

"What?" CJ asked.

"Leo needs you to go to the White House. They will tell you over there."

"Why won't you tell me?"

"I can't tell you, I don't want you to kill me in front of Derek."

"Why would I..."

"Just go to the White House." Toby looked down.

"It must be bad if you won't even look at me."

"Yeah." Toby didn't look up and started to walk upstairs.

"Toby." CJ said before he reached the top.

"Yeah."

"I do love you. No matter what."

"I love you too." Toby said then he walked the rest of the way up. CJ looked worried and walked out. She got in the car and drove to the White House, wondering what was so bad Toby couldn't tell her.

When CJ got to the White House, the press once again jumped on her. "CJ! Do you think Derek will be taken away from you because of what Danny has on Toby?"

"No comment." She said loudly. She walked into the West Wing, where she saw Sam and Josh. "What's going on that Toby can't tell me about?"

"Come with us, CJ," Sam said as the two led her to the Oval Office.
