Notes: I know I just finished posting the last story just today, but I'm trying a new thing here. I'm gonna see how I like writing a little bit, then posting it. Instead of writing an entire story, then start posting it. Something to keep in mind when you read this story, you may end up reading something similar in another story that is being posted. Two of us had similar ideas around the same time, but we both decided to post now. Don't know if there will be any songs in this one. You may get a break for a while. But we'll see, cause I have no clue where I am taking this story.

Disclaimer: People can dream, can't they?

Spoilers: It's Roni's birthday.

"Hey Roni! What's up?" Sam asked walking up behind Roni in the halls.

"Nothin' much. Just chillin'."

"You coming to the party tonight?"

"You mean the party that is a surprise birthday party for me, that I'm not supposed to know about. The one that I'm supposed to think is for the assistant...something I can't remember?"

"It's your birthday?" Sam asked nervously.

"In a few days, yeah. Like you didn't know. I see it in your face expression, Sam. You can't lie to me."

"How do you do that?"

"I don't know, it's just a gift. It comes in handy a lot, as you can probably imagine. So tell me, does this party also double as a you're-about-to-start- college-soon kind of party?"

"I wasn't the one who told you, you just remember that."

"Okay. So you wanna help me with a few things?" Roni asked with a mischievous face expression.

"What are you planning? You're not going to get me in any trouble are you?"

"Trouble? Me? Never!" Roni exclaimed.

"If you say so." Sam said giving her a questioning look.


Trying not to laugh, Sam asked, "What is it? What have you got planned?"


"Are you sure everything is set, Jed?"

"Abbey, for the tenth time, I am sure. Now sit down and relax!" Jed directed his wife to a seat on his couch, then sat next to her.

"And she doesn't expect anything?"

"We're doing this days before her birthday, I really don't think she has a clue. Now relax."

"Relax? I can't relax. There is still too much to do. I have to call the..." Abbey began as Jed grabbed her face and began to kiss her very passionately.

"Relax. You won't do anyone any good if you're not relaxed Abbey."

"I know, but I still have a lot to do. I have to..." Once again Jed stopped her from continuing her rant by kissing her.

"Shh. No more about the party. If you start to talk about the party again, I'm gonna have to take action again." Jed said smiling.

"You'll probably keep going no matter what I talk about, so I might as well contin..."

"Abbey! Stop talking." Jed kissed her once again. As his hands began to wander about, there came a light tap on the door, followed by Mrs. Landingham entering the office. Upon her entrance, Jed ceased his actions.

"I'm sorry to interrupt, sir, but there is a call for you Mrs. Bartlet."

"If it's about that damn party, she isn't available, Mrs. Landingham." Jed said, giving his wife a very transparent look.

"Thank you, Mrs. Landingham." Abbey got up and went over to the phone, as Mrs. Landingham exited the office. "Hello?...Yes...You can!...Thank you...goodbye."

"What was that about?"

"I'm not allowed to say. Listen, I've got to go do a few things, so I'm going to go now." Abbey kissed her husband on the cheek and quickly retreated from the office before he could say anything.
