A New Life For Us

She sat at her desk, going through memos and news that she would have to brief the press about. She couldn't seem to stop thinking about him. After New York, they barely saw one another. He had been reassigned and did not have very much time for them.

"Knock, knock," came a voice from the door, causing CJ to literally throw all of the memos she was reading in the air. He couldn't help but to laugh.

She put her hand on her heart. "You scared me half to death! Don't do that." She got up to pick up the pieces of paper scattered around on the floor.

At the same time, he came into the office to help her pick things up. He bent down at the same time as her.

"Ow!" She said as she rubbed her head that had just bumped his.

"Ow!" He said at the same time. "Watch it."

"Me? What about you, Mr. 'I can't see you anymore.'"

"Hey, I never said that."

"I know. I had to say something to get my frustration out." She smiled a little as he handed her the papers.

"Oh, so now I'm your punching bag," he joked.

"Yep."

He smiled. "Well, okay then."

"So where have you been? It's only been a month since I last saw you."

He sighed. "You know I can't tell you."

"Jeez, even in an off moment you remember that." She crossed her arms. "I miss you."

He nodded. "I miss you too. But we'll be able to see each other again..."

"What do you mean?" She stood up.

"Well, my assignment is done. And I don't have another one for a while now. So I was thinking that maybe we could, you know, move on with our lives...together."

"Really?" She smiled and looked into his eyes. "I mean really? You can stay for more than a day?"

"Yes, really." He cupped his hands around her face and kissed her. "My next assignment is in DC anyway. It doesn't start for another month."

She couldn't stop smiling. Finally, they could start a life. Together.

"Have I ever told you how beautiful you are when you smile?"

"Yes, but I love hearing it."

"You look beautiful when you--"

"CJ, I need that memo on the..." Josh began to say from the doorway.

She looked over at him and frowned. "Can't you see I'm a little busy right now, Joshua?"

"Yes, it's always the perfect time to catch you." He smiled. He then looked over at Simon. "It's nice to see you again."

"Same here," Simon said, trying to be as polite as possible.

"Anyway, I need that memo, CJ."

CJ rolled her eyes and walked over to her desk and grabbed the memo and stuffed it in Josh's face. "Here."

"Ow! Dang, CJ, don't you think you could be a little nicer?"

She shut the door in his face and turned back to Simon. "So, where were we?"

"Is he going to be alright? You just slammed the door in his face."

She nodded. "Yes, he'll be fine. I do that to him all of the time."

"Okay." He put his arms around her and kissed her again. "Is that where we were," he asked.

"I believe so." She kissed him back.

"I love you."

"I love you more," she said with a smile.

"CJ, I've been thinking. Since we've been seeing each other for quite a while now, how would you like to... try a trial living together situation?"

Her eyes opened wide. "Really? You would want to do that?"

"Everyday."

"I would--"

"CJ, do you have that letter for me that I asked you to type up," Toby asked, opening the door without knocking.

She picked up the letter from her desk while still looking at Simon, shoved it in Toby's face, and slammed the door. "Where was I?"

"Is he going to be alright?"

"Who, Toby? Yeah, he'll be fine. He's used to me doing that. Now what was I saying?" She thought for a second and smiled. "I would love--"

"CJ, do you have the--" Sam began.

She picked up a piece of paper from her desk and gave it to Sam and slammed the door once again, locking it this time. "Anyway," she said, turning her attention back to Simon, "I would love to."

"I'm glad." He smiled and kissed her passionately. "Well, I had better let you go before the President comes in here and yells at you."

She laughed. "He would never do that."

"Claudia Jean Cregg!" Boomed a voice from outside.

"Maybe he would." She meekly opened the door and smiled. "Hello, sir. How are you doing?"

"Why have you been slamming the door in everyone's face? And if you give me one of those one-word answers, I'm not buying it this time. Got it?"

She smiled a little as she opened the door all the way to show him that Simon was there. "I'm sorry sir, but..."

"Simon, nice to see you again." He smiled and turned back to CJ. "I apologize. I will set the rest of them straight."

"Thank you, sir," CJ said.

"Have a nice day you two." He walked away.

CJ shut the door and smiled at Simon. "I think that is the last of the interruptions."

"Good." He smiled. "Now we can begin our new life...together."

"Yeah," she smiled.

"Okay," the President said as he walked into his office where Toby, Sam, and Josh were all waiting. "You all owe me twenty bucks." He smiled.

"Yeah, yeah," they said as they dug $20 out of their wallets and handed the money to him.

"Thank you. See? I told you she would be happy when he came back."

"Yes, you most certainly did," Toby said.

"I love you," CJ said.

"I love you too." He kissed her again and at that moment knew that they would be together for a long, long time.
