I am so sorry for the long update. Enjoy.
Donna walked into her office, still not believing that SHE, Donatella Moss, was COS to the first lady. AND, she was married to Joshua Lyman. Yes, he could sometimes be a know it all, and yes he was a jerk; but he was HER jerk.
"Donna, the President would like to see you in the oval office, he claimed it was urgent." Said Charlie, interrupting my thoughts.
"Thanks Charlie." Donna replied.
Donna was greeted by the sight of Bartlet and Leo, both looking very grim. Also in the room were Sam, C.J., Toby and Will.
"Good morning Mr President, good morning Mr Vice President."
"Hello Donna, please sit down." Replied a stressed Bartlet
"At 6am this morning, the FBI obtained a video. It showed your husband, Josh Lyman, surrounded by four Gaza men. His condition was terrible, his clothes torn, bruises and marks everywhere on him. Then… he was asked to read something out, to which he denied. Then he was hit, and passed out. We have to release four of our Gaze prisoner, otherwise….."
The President trailed off, however his unfinished sentence hanged in the air.
"I am so sorry Donna; we are doing all we can."
Donna shakily muttered "of course."
"Donna, the FBI are tracing the call, we have until midnight tonight to decide what we should do. After midnight, we shall receive a new video, showing Josh's fate." He paused and took a deep breath. "Toby and Will please can you write a statement, and pass it on to C.J for the press brifing. Sam, please can you cover for Josh. And Donna, I think that you should go home, I personally shall update you every half hour."
Donna was sobbing by now. C.J sat down next to her and hugged her while Donna rocked back and forth.
"Thank you Mr President and I will go home."
The rest of the senior staff's faces showed shock, grief, and disbelief, that their confident, cocky Josh, was gone.
And with that, a grief stricken Donna walked out of the oval office, not knowing were her beloved Josh Lyman was.
So, what do you think? I AM SO SORRY FOR THE LAT UPDATE. I AM NOW DOING THE NEXT CHAPTER
