Author's Note: I want to give credit and thanks to me beta alix33. I forgot to do it in the last chapter.
"You know how you said that you'd marry me if I let you," she said. Danny shook his head.
"Oh Ceej, I'm not trying to rush you," he said. She shook her head and put her hand up to stop him. "CJ, do you want me to ask you?" She just stared at him. She closed her eyes. This sounded a little better in her head. Danny took a chance and went down on one knee. "Look at me, Claudia Jean," he said. She looked down.
"Danny, I don't know what I was thinking. You don't have to do this," she said. He pulled out a small box from his pocket. "Oh," she said.
"I have come prepared," he said. He opened the box. "I was just looking for the green light," he said. The ring was beautiful.
"It's beautiful," she whispered.
"Just like you. It took me six years, but I finally broke you," he said with a smile. "Will you, Claudia Jean Cregg, make me the happiest man on Earth?" He asked. CJ dropped to her knees and kissed him. "I hope that's a yes," he said. She nodded. "I love you."
"Yes! Oh my god, yes!" He slipped the ring on her finger and kissed her. "I love you so much, Daniel Jonathan Concannon," oh it was going to be a great day.
Donna walked into Josh's office and closed the door.
"What can I do for you, Donna?" He said with a grin.
"What if the President and Leo don't want us to be together?" She said, plopping down on his couch. Josh shook his head. He went and sat down next to her. He put his arm around her.
"Everything is going to be fine. If they don't like it then we'll figure something out. No matter what we are not breaking up. Not for the job," he said.
"I hope you're right," she said. She leaned her head against his shoulder. He kissed her forehead. She draped an arm around his torso.
"So my mother called this morning," he said.
"Is that who you were talking to while I was in the shower?" She asked. He nodded. "How is she? I haven't spoken to her in a while," she said.
"She's good. She asked about you. I told her that we spent Christmas together and she said that you were an amazing woman and to get my head out of my ass. Then I told her that we were together and she shrieked, she was so happy," Josh said. He looked down at her, she was smiling.
"That's good because I love your mother. I have to call her and tell her that I love the DVD player she bought me," she said. She leaned up and kissed him.
"You know I don't think I've ever seen or spoken to your parents," Josh said as he leaned his head against the back of the couch
"I say this and with great love and respect for you, but my parents would greatly disapprove of our relationship," she said with a sigh.
"What? Why? Everybody loves me," he said. She looked at him.
"You're kidding, right?" She asked. "You're a Democrat and my boss," she said. "And no offense, but you're Jewish. My parents are Irish Protestant and Italian Catholic. You are not the kind of man they pictured me with," she said. Josh shrugged.
"Am I the guy you pictured you with?" He asked with a smirk. She smiled.
"Yes you are, Mr. Lyman." She said. She kissed him again. He pulled her closer. "We should get to work." She whispered on his lips.
"That's a novel idea." Leo said from the doorway with his arms crossed. Donna had never moved so quickly. She moved away from him and fell off the couch. Josh winced and helped her up.
"It's not what it looks like." Josh said. Leo rolled his eyes.
"Another one." He mumbled. "Were you and Donna just making out on your office couch?" He asked. They both nodded. "Then it's exactly what it looks like." He said. Donna stepped forward.
"Leo, I just want to say that—." She started to say, ringing her hands in nervousness. Leo put his hands up to stop her.
"Relax, Donna. I'm not going to fire you or him. Well I'm not going to fire him for the moment. He's bound to do something stupid today. Hey, you interested in his job?" Leo said. That remark somehow but the new couple at ease. "Danny accepted." Leo said to Josh. Josh smiled.
"Yes!" He said. Donna smiled. She was really happy for her friends. CJ and Danny were finally together and Josh had his other best friend in the office.
"He's going to be at the senior staff meeting at three." Leo said. "I don't care about this," he said gesturing to Josh and Donna. ", but try not to let me you catch you guys like that again." He said. "I'm happy for you guys. Tell CJ in case she hears about in the press room." He said and then left. Donna kissed him hard.
"I love you." She said. He grinned like he was the luckiest guy in the world.
"I love you too." He said.
CJ and Danny walked in.
"So you two, huh?" CJ asked. Danny intertwined his fingers with CJ's. Donna smiled.
"Yeah." Josh said, holding Donna close. The four of them just smiled at each other. It was going to be a very good year.
