CJ sprinkled fish flakes across the top of Gail's bowl and felt laughter bubbling up again. It was such an utterly ridiculous present and yet so very sweet. Honestly, who made that kind of mistake?

Shaking her head at the absurdity of it all, she checked her watch. Another hour before she had to go do her song and dance routine in front of the press again. Any amusement she might have felt was quickly swept away. This briefing - and those for the next few days - was not going to be fun. Lillienfield was gunning for Leo, and her own gaff the day before hadn't helped anything. Danny had been right about that.

If she were honest with herself, she had to admit that he was often right. She might be the press secretary, but Danny still had many more years of experience with the Washington press corp.

Thoughts of Danny brought her back to the goldfish at her hip, and this time she gave into the laughter. Really, it wasn't so bad. She had a good friend in the press corp, a good fight to fight and a goldfish named Gail. It could be so much worse.
