"Will Baby Make Three?" part twelve.
Disclaimer: in part one.
I'll eventually learn to trust the computer again.

"I would love to."
"You would?"
She punched him gently on the arm. "Don't act so surprised! You know I
love you and I did say that I would eventually marry you when we both
thought the time was right."
"Yes, you did. I love you, too." He leaned in to kiss her. "I'm staying
here tonight."
"I wouldn't think of asking you to leave. Lay down with me."
"The nurse will probably throw me out."
"Oh, and you're worried about that, right? Try again, Daniel."
"You know me too well." He kissed her again. "So, we leave at a decent
time tomorrow. Get married that night or Saturday morning. Enjoy the
weekend and go back to work Tuesday."
"Tuesday?" CJ was surprised. Neither one them was in the habit of missing
work.
"Don't you think we deserve a honeymoon?"
"Yes, we do."
"What about the move? Who's going where?"
"My apartment is bigger then yours so you should move in with me. The extra
bedroom, well, we've already been fixing that up for the nursery. That
little room, in the alcove, can be the den. I do most of my work in the
living room anyway, so you could use the den if you like it better then the
living room. There's plenty of room for your belongings, Danny."
"Okay, that was easy."
"Because we talked about this before, albeit briefly. You're not gonna miss
your place? Your own space?" she asked a little apprehensively.
"No, how about you?"
"Not at all. I'm already used to having you around."

The nurse came in once during the night to check on CJ. She smiled when she
saw Danny in bed, holding CJ. They looked very contented. Even though she
wasn't supposed to, she decided to leave them alone. In the morning, she
came in before the orderly brought breakfast for CJ. Danny was sitting in
the chair next to the bed. He winked at the nurse. "Thanks for not chasing
me last night."
"Let's just keep that between ourselves, okay?"
"Absolutely."

The doctor came for one last checkup before he discharged her.
"You can go home but I really want you to remember what I said yesterday.
It's in your best interests and the baby's."
"I will, Doctor."
"Can she travel a little bit? We're going to get married but we're not sure
where."
"Yes, she can, she's fine. But make sure she rests wherever you end up and
try to make it close to home. Congratulations."
"Thanks."

The doctor left, leaving Danny and CJ the opportunity to talk while she
prepared to leave.
"Where do you think we should go and who's going to be our witnesses?"
"Josh and Donna would be perfect. They're used to keeping our secrets.
I'll speak to them and see if they're available."
"Great. Now we just need the place."
"Not as easy as it sounds, Mr. Newspaper Man." She smiled at him. He came
over to kiss her.
"Don't make too much fun of me. You're soon going to be Mrs. Newspaper
Man." He smirked at her.
"I know. Get back to the subject at hand." She was ready to leave.
"You going to work?"
"He didn't say I couldn't. Then I'll just leave early. We should get
married tonight. Then we can lose Josh and Donna and have the whole weekend
to ourselves."
Danny smiled. "I like the way you think." He winked at her. "Let's go."
