The Addition ~ 1

She looked at the letter that Carol had given to her when she handed her her mail. She was afraid to open it. What was it going to say? Would this work? Very slowly, she began to open the letter when there was a knock at the door. "Come in," she said, hiding the letter in the drawer of the desk.

"CJ, are you coming with us?" Josh asked, walking into the office.

"Coming with you where?"

"Don't you remember? We said that we were going to go to dinner after work. You, me, Sam, and Toby." Josh said.

She shook her head, "Oh...right. Um, yeah, I'm still coming." She smiled, trying to reassure him that everything was fine.

Josh looked closely at her. "What's going on, CJ? You've been in a daze all week. Come to think of it, you've been in a daze for the past month. What's going on?"

"Nothing, Josh. Nothing is going on." She said quickly.

"Okay...so are you coming?"

"Yeah, I'll meet you guys in the lobby."

"Okay," Josh said as he walked to the door. "You sure everything is okay?"

"Yes, Joshua, everything is fine. Thank you."

He nodded and left the office.

She opened the drawer and took the letter back out. She wanted to open it, but she knew that if she did, she would end up making everyone else worry. She put the letter into her purse, got up, took her coat, and left the office.

"What took you so long," Toby asked when he saw her walking towards them.

"I had to finish something up. I'm done now, so can we go? Please? I didn't eat lunch and I'm cranky."

"I'm ready if you are," Sam said to the others.

"Let's go then." CJ said as she walked out of the building.

Sam, Toby, and Josh looked at each other. "What is she up to?" Sam asked.

"How would I know? She has been in some weird daze during the past month. She says that nothing's wrong, but I think that something's up," Toby said.

"Hello? Three stooges, can we go now?" She asked impatiently.

"We're coming," Toby grumbled.

AT THE RESTAURANT...

"CJ, are you okay?" Toby asked for what seemed like the millionth time.

"Yes, Toby, I'm fine. Quit asking me."

"It's just that you barely touched your dinner...I thought you were hungry."

She saw the other two staring at her. "I'm fine, okay? Let's talk about something else."

"So Sam, how'd the meeting on the Hill go?" Josh asked.

"Same as last week. Nothing got accomplished. You would think that after three years, they would start listening to us..."

CJ sat there quietly, not really listening to their conversation. She wanted to open the letter. She wanted to open it now, but she knew she couldn't. It would have to wait until she got home.
