Nobody Wants To Be Lonely-3
After Danny finally giving up after 2 years of asking Cj out, he leaves D.C. for
Cj had been laying on her bed for over 2 hours, just staring at the ceiling
Cj awaited a response as she turned on the coffee machine.
"Cj, it's Josh."
"Hi," she said quickly.
"Um...i know we have to talk about, uh, what happened."
"Yeah," she hesitated.
She put in the blend of mocha in the aparatus as she waited.
"Yeah, well, we were both pretty drunk."
"Yeah. So, i don't think anything really happened."
"Are you sure?"
"Yeah, i was still in my boxers and i sleep nude."
"Ok, that was too much information."
"And i woke up under the bed."
"I woke up on it," she said moving around heading for the apple jacks.
"So, we can just put it behind us."
"Yeah, but you know i'm gonna bother you for the sleeping nude thing."
"It was eminent," he laughed.
Cj nodded as she pured the cereal into a bowl.
"Good, i'm glad you understand that. And we can move on, it was just a weird
"Like a sleepover."
Cj didn't answer that.
"you know, like when you girls get together and sleep at each other's houses."
"We don't do that at this age, Josh."
"Oh," he sounded disappointed.
"I mean, we have really big sleepovers in a, uh, in a big house," she said
"Yeah, and don't scare me like that."
"I won't," she laughed.
"Ok, then. I guess i'll see you on monday."
"You will," Cj replied sitting with her bowl.
"Ok then, bye."
Cj hung up the phone as she finally sat down to her apple jacks.
As Cj finished drying her bowl there was a knock on her door.
"Who could it be," she asked as she ran to the door.
Cj stood face to face with......a rose.
Cj grinned as she turned her head to see fishboy.
"Hey," she said as they awkwardly moved out of each others' way and entered
"thought i'd see what you were up to," he said as he looked around.
"What are you looking for?"
"A guy," he joked.
She playfully slapped him as she took his jacket.
"How'd you know where i live?"
"I asked Josh," he said while sitting on her couch.
"so he knows that we're-"
"He was very jubiliant, to give you a mental picture."
"Uh-huh," she thought.
"Do you want anything? I have cereal, eggs, whatever," she said.
"no thanks, i ate on the plane and it was actually pretty good."
"Ok," she said putting away her display of breakfast foods.
"Anyway, i thought we could catch a movie or if you're not up to going publicly
"What about both?"
Danny was surprised as he stood to face her.
"Are you sure?"
"Yeah. I know this theatre where like only 10 people are in the movie, and we
"Ms. Cregg, i am surprised at your zeal."
"Be surprised, Fishboy."
Cj grinned as she stepped closer to kiss him.
"w-wow..i mean, i am surprised."
Cj grinned at him as she grabbed her jacket.
"So, what movie?"
"....that was the most adorable movie ever," Cj said as she grabbed the soda
"Uh-huh, but i liked Jennifer Lopez more."
"More than the lady sitting next to you?"
"Of course not," he answered, leading her out.
Cj held onto his arm until the lights were put back on, and they both quickly
"We gotta get used to doing that, you know."
"Yeah, i know," Danny sighed.
"It's not that i don't want them to know that i'm falling for the man of their
"You and I both," he answered while opening the door.
Cj scanned the selections as Danny cracked his knucles while following her.
"You shouldn't do that," she said.
"And why not?"
"Because i don't want to be stuck with the old Danny complaining about the
"You don't wanna be stuck, or you don't want me-"
"The second one, you idiot."
"Oh," he said taking out the gum pack from his jacket.
"You shouldn't do that either," she mused.
"I'm going to here why whether or not i answer."
"Because i don't want to be stuck paying all my life savings to have to pay up
"Yeah, yeah, now will you just pick a movie?"
"How bout 'The American President?"
"Too much politics, let's save that for tomorrow."
"Sure," he said grabbing a copy.
Cj heard Danny's heart beat as she fell asleep in his arms.
"Cj?" Danny softly whispered.
"Do you want me to carry you to your bed?"
"Please," she yawned.
"Sure," he grinned.
Danny held Cj in his arms as he carried her to her room.
"left," she said.
"Here we are," he said putting her in her bed.
"Thank you," she said still holding onto his neck.
"Anytime. I mean it," he smiled.
"Come here, fishboy."
Danny leaned in as she pulled him down.
"What," he laughed.
"Here," she said kissing him passionately.
"You-y-you taste good."
"I've gotten that a lot," she chuckled.
"You bet," she said while moving next to him.
"Morning," Cj said while bringing in two plates.
"Food service? I am impressed," he grinned.
"Only the best in the Cregg suite. I made scrambled eggs."
"Yum," he said accepting the plate she handed him.
They both had bed n breakfast while watching MTV.
"This is really good," he said.
"My mom taught me."
"Lucky gal," he smiled.
"I'm glad you came back."
"Me too," he added.
"I mean, i don't feel this way often, you know, when you're by me i fell like
"The feeling's mutual," he said holding her hand.
"So, i'm not going anywhere without you by my side."
"Good," she said munching on some toast.
"Hey, you knwo when i hear this song, i think of you," he said pointing to
there you are
"That's a sad song," Cj said.
"Wait, this is the part that reminds me of you."
.....it's a serenade
"Well i didn't exactly fly down stairs."
"No, but if there were staris you would've."
"Yeah, i would," she said smiling.
