For Lack of Better Words

Quietly entering Abbey's office, Jed went straight over to the couch, and sat down. Holding a copy of the transcripts of the meeting that took place no less than an hour ago. The same copy that was already in the hands of all of the White House reporters...
After getting absolutely no where with Abbey, remaining as silent as he was, Jed decided to smack the paper against the arm of the chair, over and over again.
Having been successful in drawing Abbey's attention, but not her voice, Jed raised a hand to his mouth and cleared his throat.
"Fine! I give in." Abbey said. "What?"
"Oh, I think you know what, Abigail." Jed adopted a tone.
"Jed, are you going to tell me? Cause if not..."
Jed stood up and walked over to her desk. Once there, he threw the papers down on her desk. "That's what the hell I'm talking about!" Jed shouted.
"Don't raise your voice to me, Josiah!" Abbey shouted right back, as she picked up the scattered papers on her desk and began to read them, just long enough to figure out what they were.
"What the hell were you doing saying that stuff, Abbey?"
Looking up at Jed, Abbey elected to keep quiet and quickly exit the room, before she blew her roof... Leaving Jed standing in the middle of her office staring out the door.
After a brief moment, Jed finally began to move his feet. One in front of the other, until they were at a fast pace, and headed towards Abbey. Coming up behind her in the middle of the foyer right near the press briefing room, Jed managed to grab her by the arm.
"Jed! You don't. You know damn well that what I said was right. I don't give a rat's ass if it causes you problems. I was right, and I will not apologize for it."
"Abbey!" Jed's voice echoed through the halls filled with reporters with audio and video equipment.
"Jed, I will not apologize!" Was Abbey's final word as she paraded away from him.
"Damn her!" Jed exclaimed as he maintained his look of extreme discontent, as Toby came approaching him at a fast pace.
