I really miss you.

By Clare

Rated PG. 2nd in the Parasdise series

Set three weeks after 'I thought she knew' This is
inspired I am ashamed to say, by the S Club 7 song 'I
really miss you' The words to which are at the end of
this fic. Characters are Aarons. Except for Donnas
family, they're mine. This is the second story in what
I've named the Paradise series.. This kind of jumps
from Joshs POV to what Donnas doing a little stupid I
admit so sorry. For Rel, Happy birthday hun.

We have the White house for 5 more weeks and then it's
over and we have to start looking for new jobs. Donna
has been gone 3 weeks to the day and I miss her like
crazy. I figure she's gone back to Wisconsin but those
oh so lovely people in personnel won't give me her
address or phone number neither will her room mate,
who by the way, can hit hard for a girl so I think if
she's mad enough to hit me then Donna's probably mad
enough to 'cause much more pain which I'd gladly
endure if I could see her again.


So my second plan of action (the first being to pester
the ladies in personnel) is to harass Sam and CJ for
her number 'cause I'm pretty sure she left it with
them. I think I'm gonna go with Sam first as he's, you
know, the proverbial weakest link.


So anyway the reason I want Donna back isn't so she
can organise my office, although that is going to hell
but I'm past caring. I came to a realisation when I
realised she'd gone. I'm in love with her and when I
shared this information with Toby he hit me round the
head (What's with the hitting anyway?) and told me
that they knew that already. Well, okay then. They
couldn't have maybe told me sooner?

Donna sat on the porch of the Moss family home with
her blanket from when she was a child around her
shoulders and watched her brother Nick play football
with his two sons, Daniel and Ross. She smiled softly
as the boys ganged up on their father knocking him to
the ground.


"They're fun to watch aren't they?" Donna looked up at
her mother who stood in the door way and nodded.


"I don't know where Nick gets the energy to play with
them for so long." Sarah Moss smiled at her daughter
and sat down next to her daughter.


"Well, Donnatella, one day you'll have children and
have to find the energy to play non stop." Donna
wrinkled up her nose and shook her head.


"I don't think I'll be playing football. I'd get
knocked down more than Nick."


Sarah laughed and looked over at her son and grandsons
before asking, "Are you ready to tell me why you left
D.C?" Donnas eyes misted over as Josh came into her
mind. For a few seconds she'd been able to laugh and
forget the pain but this wasn't going to go away for
awhile.


Taking a deep breath she turned to her mother and
hesitantly started to tell her what happened.


"When we found out that the President had lost the
election, Josh just snapped. He shouted at me and I
don't mean Joshs usual shouting about nothing. He said
some really cruel things and I just couldn't stay and
face him...I know it sounds like nothing but, well...I
guess you had to be their." Sarah sighed and pulled
her daughter into a hug as a few tears fell from her
eyes.


"Sweetheart, men can do some truly thoughtless things
when they're upset. I've spoken to Josh on a couple
occasions when I called you at work while you were at
lunch and I can tell he loves you, he just finds it
hard to say. You need to face him."


"And if you're wrong? And he really meant what he
said?" Donna pulled away and looked at her mother who
just smiled slightly.


"Then quite obviously we would have to send your
brother and father to Washington so they could talk
some sense into him." Donna laughed and thought about
it for a second before asking.


"You think I should go? Really?" Sarah nodded. "Then I
guess I should phone the airport." Nodding again Sarah
climbed to her feet.


"Go call the airport while I finish dinner and then
I'll help you pack." Donna smiled what felt like the
first real smile in years.

I called today just to hear you say
just to hear you say you were not around

When the message was through

though I wanted to
I couldn't make a sound

I wanna tell you the things I've seen
I wanna take you to where I've been
And wish you were here with me


I really miss you yes I do - yeah
I really miss you
Oooh yeah I do

I'm writing to say –

I had a wonderful day
Hanging with my friends
But the memory dies

as the sun reach the skies –

I'm alone again

I wanna tell you the weather is fine
When the night comes around

you were on my mind
And I wish you were here with me
Don't you know

I really miss you
Yes I do yeah
I really miss you
Oooh yeah I do
I really miss you
Oooh yeah I do

I wanna tell you the things I've seen
I wanna take you to where I've been
And wish you were here with me
Oh don't you know

I really miss you
Yes I do yeah
I really miss you
I miss you

I called today just to hear you say

just to hear you say you were not around
When the message was through

though I wanted to
I couldn't make a sound

I'm writing to say –

I had a wonderful day
Hanging with my friends
But the memory dies

as the sun reach the skies –

i'm alone again
