This is excellent. I like the conversations with Abby, with Gibbs, Tony's looking up sites on the internet only to find that Ziva had already been to all of them, the sense of panic at even thinking about it , let along talking about it,, Ziva *telling* Abby she'd been raped, Abby telling Ziva about her fear when she was abducted...i just really like what you've done as you've developed this, up to and including Tony's pained response to really, finally *getting* what Ziva having been an assassin meant. Also...Gibbs walking in on them (mostly to make a point) makes me SO HAPPY. I just giggled at it. "You don't have to have all your important conversations in the bathroom." *grin*

The first time I read this a few years ago I remember thinking that Tony was being a self-righteous prick jackass moron for basically pushing and pushing Ziva into a relationship and getting her to open up to him and then crushing her by taking issue with her past. I've thought about this story often over the years and I'm glad I found it again (I'd forgotten to bookmark it the first time around). Those feelings still hold true the second time, only with more intense feelings of disappointment and disgust (probably because of the later part of S7, S8 and the whole EJ mess). Even though I know that they do eventually work things out in your stories, I just can't help by remember that this is just another in a long list of ways that Tony has hurt Ziva. Ray was a colossal jerk and I believe the writers dropped the ball by having him turn out to be a murdering sociopath instead of having them break up because it was Ziva's CHOICE but having said that, I'm quite certain that there wouldn't have been a Ray if Tony wasn't being pushing her away in the second half of S7 (need I even mention Obsession?). Once again, Ziva put herself out there for him and he broke her heart. I see it happening again this season (only she's not being as open as she used to be in the past, I think because she's too weary and wary of him now)...I mean Wendy? And the supermodel suspect? Ugh! I for one hope that Ziva hooks up with Stan Burley and leaves to have her much deserved happily ever after.
Anyway, thank you for sharing and for reading my review/rant. ) Am in the midst of re-reading your stories so I still have a few more chapters of angst...love your work lia!

Good night I'm behind! Sorry for the late reviews! This was a great ending to the story, very suspenseful and heartbreaking. I realy want to slap Tony, but at the same time, I love the conflict here. I can't wait to go read Making Mistakes :) thanks so much for this story, I absolutely loved it!

But until I know if I can live with who you are, I don't want to pretend this is forever - That even broke MY heart.
He practically dangled this happiness in her face and then changed his mind.
I don't agree with Michael W's answer to that (AN of last chapter) question because it was purely comical. The fact that she was an assasin is much more complicated than just KILLING people. And she took out the bad guys. Geeze.

So, first of all, there was a lot I was going to comment on but when I saw the name Eileen I forgot all of it and started singing 'Come on Eileen' in an endless loop.

Such a bad idea, considering Ziva is a self-proclaimed screamer (What episode was that? Boxed In maybe?). Seriously though, how hard is it to lock the door, I found myself asking my brother and his girlfriend the same thing one time.

I never thought of it before but it makes so much sense that hey would put her picture up on the wall. I love that idea
| LunaZola chapter 5 . 3/12/2010
The whole exchange after she got home was AMAZING. Wonderful, best day of my life. :D It's rare in TIva fics for Ziva to admit it first but I thinkyou did it flawlessly.

That was so bitter sweet. Loved it though some parts were a little sad.

Gibbs didn't interfer with anything... I don't think I get why Tony's angry about her talking to him. I get the thing about taking sides but that have anything to do with what set him off, did it? (I'm over analyzing, ignore me)
