Best Laid Plans - part 6

CJ watched them closely as Josh and Sam looked around her living room and then sat down.

"What did you need?" She asked.

"We were going to talk to you about the situation with Toby, but since you are obviously tired..." Sam replied, getting up.

"There has to be something we can do." Josh said, not moving from the chair he was sitting in.

"The relationship came to it's inevitable bad end. There's nothing more to say." CJ said, covering her mouth to stifle a yawn.

"I'm sorry." Sam said. "We really should go and let you get some sleep."

"It's only 10." Josh said.

"Josh how many nights do I get home before midnight!" CJ snapped.

"You have a point." Josh said.

"So if you don't mind I'd like to sleep since this is one of those few nights that I have gotten home before midnight."

"Okay." Josh said, getting up. "You know if you need to talk to anyone..."

"Yeah, yeah, yeah." CJ replied.

"Same here." Sam said.

"Thanks." CJ replied as she walked them to the door.

"Night." Josh said as he walked out. CJ closed the door behind them, breathing a large sigh of relief that they were gone. She turned the lights out and went back to the bedroom.


Sam and Josh walked down the street away from CJ's building. "Maybe we should go talk to Toby." Josh said.

"What?" Sam said. He was paying close attention to the car they were walking beside, even turning to look at the license plate as they walked past it.

"Go talk to Toby about the situation between him and CJ."

"He's not at home." Sam replied.

"And your clairvoyant powers are telling you that how?"

"We just walked past his car."


"That car back there was Toby. I'm thinking that since it's parked close to CJ's building."

"How do you know that's Toby's car?"

"The license plate."

"You know Toby's license plate number?" Josh asked.

"No, I don't. If you asked me right now I couldn't give you the numbers. I just recognize it when I see it."


"So Toby is parked near CJ's building, that would lead me to believe that..."

"Toby is with CJ."


"And they've been pulling one on us all long." Josh said.


"What are we going to do about it?"

"I don't know."


CJ glanced at Toby as she walked back into the bedroom, he didn't move at all. She walked over to the other side of the bed and saw that his eyes were closed. "I swear if he has gone to sleep." She muttered.

Toby opened his eyes. "What makes you think I've gone to sleep?"

"Maybe the fact that your eyes were closed."

"I was just resting my eyes."

"Oh you were?"


"Got to the point I couldn't seem to keep them open, but I wasn't asleep. I heard every word that Josh and Sam said."

"Well then you know they are gone."


She slipped the robe off and got in bed with him. "So where were we?"

Toby put an arm around her and pulled CJ to him. His other hand slipped the strap of her nightgown down so he could kiss her collarbone. "Right here." He murmured.
