"So tell me again why I'm at the mall on my day off?" CJ asked as she entered the mall.
"Because I don't know what to get Donna for Christmas. Don't you still have shopping to do?" Josh asked.
"Just Leo, Margret, and Danny." She said. The last name caused Josh's eyebrows to rise.
"Danny?" Josh asked. "You're getting Danny a present?"
"He said he wanted to exchange gifts like normal friends." She said with a shrug of her shoulders.
"Well what are you going to get him?" Josh asked with a smirk. CJ rolled her eyes.
"If I knew what to get him, then I would have bought it already." She said. She saw a small personalizing store. "Let's go in there." She said.
"Why don't you just admit that you love him?" Josh said with a smirk. They walked into the store.
"Because it would be unprofessional and complicated." She said casually. She saw a silver fortune cookie with a fortune sticking out that you could personalize.
"So you don't deny that you love him?" Josh asked looking at her. She froze and looked at him.
"No. I do love him. I think I always have." She finally admitted, shocking herself.
"Well Ms. Cregg, I think we've had a break through today." Josh said, smugly as he clapped his hands together. She rolled her eyes. She picked up the fortune cookie.
"Why don't you get her something from here?" She said. Josh spotted a necklace with a stoplight on it. 'Perfect.' He thought.
"So what are you going to do about you and Danny?" Josh asked. She shook her head.
"Nothing. We can't do anything." She said.
"So you're willing to give up the man you love?" Josh asked. She wrote down what she wanted on the fortune.
"It's what we both want. Both of us love or jobs too much to give up. We're both helping change the world in our own right." She said. Josh wrote down what he wanted and they both walked out. They walked around and finished their shopping.
They were getting ready to walk out of the mall when they heard laughing. CJ spotted Danny with his arm around a woman with light brown hair with red highlights. They were both smiling and laughing hard about something. CJ was shocked. The woman leaned in and kissed him on the cheek. CJ was heartbroken.
"CJ." Josh said after seeing that she was close to tears.
"I'm too late." She whispered loud enough for Josh to hear. She left the mall quickly. Josh sighed and followed her out.
