You Look Familiar... Part 4

Author: Donna Moss

Rating: PG

Genre: Romance

Disclaimer: Short n' Sweet. They're not mine, they're Aaron Sorkin's.

Summary: "He looks familiar, not like I've seen him in the newspapers, but like something else." She thought as she walked into his office.

Spoilers: As I continue, I will add more.

Author's Note: If you don't read the first three, you won't get it. It'll just get more clueless by the letter. The ending to the You look familiar series. I was just looking at the boy of my dreams, and wondering what it would be like if I walked into his campaign office 20 years from now. Enjoy.

20 years earlier Alternating P.O.V.

"Donna, I need to talk to you about something. Something personal."

Oh God, Oh God, Oh God, Oh God, Oh God, Oh God, Oh God, Oh God, Oh God,

This doesn't sound good. I hope he's not still mad about that flippant thing.

"Donna, do you harbor certain...feelings for me?" Oh God, Oh God, Oh God, Oh God,

*mumble*

"What?"

"yes."

It wasn't even a statement, it was more like a squeak.

"Donna, I've seen the way you look at me. I've seen the way you stay after in class, because I'm always the last one out. I've even seen *that note* you have in your pocket. I think it's more than a mumbled yes." Full of myself much?

Full of yourself much? "More like a hell yes."

Silence.

"I'll be on my way then. I can tell this conversation is over. I'm sorry."

"What the hell is wrong with you?"

I grabbed her arm, but she pulled back.

'Jeez, man, I'm really sorry? It's a free country you know. It's right there in the preamble to the constitution." And secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity." I can like whoever I want."

"I know but...."

I grabbed her arm again.

"STOP!"

"Don't you get it?" this was going to take a lot of guts.

I kissed her.

He kissed me.

We kissed each other.

"Oh. My. God."

Present Day

"Josh, can I talk to you about something personal?"

"Yeah, sure about what?"

"About why I collapsed a few weeks ago."

"Oh sit down. I already know why."

"Really? Well, I'll have my resignation in by morning. I just have to finish up some things. I can tell this is going to be weird. Let me just...."

"Relax, you couldn't be more wrong."

"Oh."

"You broke up with me. You stopped talking to me, and wouldn't answer my calls either. You found someone else."

Silence.

"I'm afraid to ask."

"Madeline Laine Hampton."

"Oh God. I'm really sorry. I never meant to...."

"I knew it was going to be weird. I'll have my resignation in by tomorrow morning, but like I said, I have some things I have to..."

"There is no way you're going anywhere."

I kissed her.

He kissed me. We kissed each other.

It was the same kiss we shared on that rainy day 20 years ago in the 8th grade B hallway.

"Donna?"

"Hmm?"

"Who did start that rumor?"

"Me."
