Chapter 21- Home life
For the first night the twins were home they were up at 1:15am, 3am and 5am. Ziva and Tony both got up all three times. Charlie slept through the whole night. Tony dropped Charlie off sat school then went back home.
At home Ziva was sitting in the floor with the twins. She held a teddy bear over them and tickled them with it. The girls gave their mother a gummy smile. They would sometimes let out a laugh. Tamara started to fuss so Ziva picked her up. She didn't need her dipper changed so Ziva fees her. Ziva managed to position herself so she could feed Tamara and rub Alisa tummy so she didn't feel left out. Tony came back in time as Alisa started to fuss.
"Hey. I'll burp Tamara and you can feed Alisa." Ziva passed Tamara to Tony and picked up Alisa.
Tony walked up and down the living room with Tamara. After burping Tony rocked her to sleep. With both girls sleeping they were up placed into their cribs. Tony had read in a book that when the baby is sleep then the parents should sleep. Ziva and Tony did just there. They were so tired from being up three times during the night.
The team went round to Tony's and Ziva's after work. Tony and Ziva had asked Abby and Gibbs to be godparents to Alisa and Jen and McGee to be godparents to Tamara, which they all agreed to be. Charlie was up in her room doing homework.
"You ok, Princess?" Tony said entering her room.
"Yeah." Charlie didn't look up from her homework.
"Are you sure? You have been very quiet since you came home from school."
"I just have a lot of homework and it's really boring."
"Do you want any help?"
"No thanks. I'm almost done."
"Ok. Well come down once you're done." He gave her a kiss on the head before he left and went back down stairs.
"Is Charlie ok?" Abby asked.
"I don't know. She says she has lot of homework to do but I can tell she's hiding something." Tony sat down next to Ziva who was holding Alisa.
"Here, I'll go talk to her." Ziva passed Alisa to him then went up to Charlie's room. "What's wrong Charlie?"
"Nothing." Charlie didn't look at her.
"Charlie, you never do your homework up here. You do it down stairs with me or your dad." Ziva walked up to her a crouched at the side of her desk. Charlie kept playing with the sleeves of her cardigan. Ziva spun her in her chair so Charlie was now facing her. "Charlie show me your arm." Charlie took off her cardigan. She had bruises around her left wrist. "What happened?" Ziva was shocked that Charlie hadn't said anything.
"I don't want to talk about it." Charlie looked away from Ziva
"I'm not going to be angry." Ziva put her hand under Charlie's head and turned it towards her. "Charlie, please tell me what happened."
"It was during recess. I went to the toilet as my friends went out to the playground. I was going to find them and this boy was sitting by himself. I tapped him on the back to see if he was ok. He grabbed by wrist and held it tightly."
"Did you tell your teacher?" Ziva rubbed her thumb over the bruise. Charlie shook her head. "Why?"
"Don't know. The way he looked at me was scary." Ziva sat with Charlie on her lap and held her tightly.
"You have to tell your teacher or me or your dad even anyone in the team if any one hurts you, understand." Charlie nodded. "Have you finished your homework?"
"Yes, I finished it a while ago."
"Why did you stay up here?"
"I didn't want youse to see my bruise." Charlie played with the hem of her top.
"Come on why don't you change into your pjs and come down." Charlie nodded then got up.
Ziva went down stairs and told the team about Charlie's bruise. When Charlie came down stairs no one said anything about her bruise. Charlie had asked Abby if she wanted to hear the song she had been working on. Charlie forgot all about her bruise when she was busy doing other things. Ziva got a picture of Charlie sleeping in the floor with her head resting on Pippa and her sisters sleeping on either side of her. Tony put the twins to bed as they let Charlie sleep continue to sleep on Pippa. Charlie woke up when the team left so Ziva read her a chapter from Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince. Pippa took her usual post on Charlie's bed before Ziva left the room.
"I'm going to talk to her teacher when I drop her off at school tomorrow." Tony said when Ziva came into their bedroom.
"Good. I don't want her to be scared to tell us things." Ziva rested her head on Tony's shoulder.
"I don't want that either. Why don't go take a bath since the twins are asleep." Tony massaged her shoulders.
"Why don't you join me in the bath?" Ziva stood up and took Tony's hand leading him into their bathroom
