Author's Notes: I'm changing the rating of the next two parts to PG-13.

Two weeks later, she walked into her office and took a deep breath as she slammed the door behind her. She was certain Josh would be unable to resist the sound of the slamming door, and less than two minutes later her hypothesis was proven correct.

"You okay?" Josh asked, when he opened the door.

"Why would I be?"

"You slammed the door."

"Yes."

"Why did you slam the door?"

"Because Toby is an infuriating jackass."

"What happened?"

"We got into a fight."

"Fight or argument?"

"Well if it had been an argument I wouldn't be so upset, would I?"

"Why not?"

"Because an argument is something we could overcome, a fight is something Toby and I won't overcome."

"Are you saying it's over?" Josh asked, shocked.

"Yes." She replied, surprised that she was able to keep a straight face.

"I'm sorry." He didn't know what else to say.

"Not your fault."

"Yeah." Josh turned to go.

"I'm just going to throw myself into my work."

"Okay." Josh left.

As he closed the door, CJ tried to control her laughter.

Josh went to Sam's office. "We've got a problem." He said as he walked in.

"We do?"

"Yeah."

"And this problem would be?"

"CJ and Toby."

"Everything is fine with the two lovebirds."

"No, Sam everything is not fine."

"What are you talking about?"

"They got into a fight. CJ says it's over."

"What?"

"Yeah."

"Think there is anything we can do to push them back together?" Sam asked.

"I don't know."

CJ was lucky enough to be able to leave work early that day. She walked around her apartment making sure everything was the way she wanted it. Half an hour later, her doorbell rang.

She smiled as she pulled Toby inside. "It's about time you got here." She laughed.

"Well if I had known I would have this kind of greeting.." He grinned looking at her standing before him in a robe.

"I wanted to be comfortable."

"Yeah."

"I ordered dinner and it arrived a little while ago."

"Okay."

She led him into the dining room where they shared a candlelit dinner.

"I overheard Sam and Josh today." Toby said later.

"What did they say?"

"They're wondering if there is a way to put us back together."

She laughed, standing in his arms. "I would say we are together right now, wouldn't you?"

"Yes."

"So they want to put us back together?"

"Yes."

"I happen to think that's rather sweet." She smiled.

"We aren't apart."

"They don't know that."

"True." She whispered as she started to kiss him passionately. They made their way into the bedroom and were laying on the bed kissing when there was a knock on the door.

"Ignore it, they'll go away." Toby whispered.

"Okay." She replied. They continued to kiss, but the knock didn't go away. CJ sat up. "I'll go get rid of whoever that is, you should stay here."

"Okay." He watched her get out of the bed and walk towards the door. "CJ."

"Yeah."

"You forgot something." He was holding her robe.

"Yes." She said as he slipped it over her shoulders.

"Hurry back." Toby whispered, kissing her neck.

"I will." She went and looked out the door's peephole. She groaned when she saw it was Josh and Sam.

"What?" CJ asked as she opened the door.

"May we come in?" Josh asked.

"Yeah." She stepped aside and watched them come in, wondering why they were at her apartment.
