Jesus H Christ Mecha! You just broke my heart here. I've got tears in my eyes and am fervently praying that you'll update this soon. I'm pretty dumbfounded why Gibbs and Tony didn't think to send protection for Ziva, especially after that telephone conversation! WTF Tony/Gibbs?! Had no doubt when you said Eli was missing that he'd come for her and that she'd sacrifice herself for Sara. That's just who Ziva is.
Can't wait for your next chapter. Incredible writing. Thank you for sharing. :)

What is going on - has the man gone bonkers?

Please let Ziva be all right! I hate Eli right now.

OMG! Where is Gibbs? Girls need you!

Oh noes! Oh, that evil bastard! Okay, let me see if I can calm down and get over the ending enough to talk about the whole chapter. Yay, Tony's home! I love him and Ziva spending the weekend together and making wedding plans. (And I *love* Tony grouching "Where's mine?" to Gibbs when he kisses Ziva & Sara - lol!)
Eli is one sneaky bastard. I think he purposely waited until Tony and McGee were home from Sana'a to go after Ziva, because he knew everyone would have their guard down then. (Gibbs obviously had his guard UP while they were away, greeting Tony with a gun like that!) Gah, why couldn't he listen to Tony's gut and get the hell home?
Wow, even for Eli, it sets a new low for him to attack his own daughter and threaten to kill a helpless little girl. I don't think she's going to die (because if that happens, I will track you down to Seattle and kill you - fair warning) but something this traumatic is probably going to take both her *and* Sara a long time to fully recover from.
That final scene where he's dragging her away and Sara's screaming her head off and Ziva's certain that she's going to die and still praying that Sara will have everything she didn't? Gah, that just kills me! I hope Gibbs gets home fast and makes Eli sorry he ever touched Ziva! (Ducky can get rid of the body, Abby can get of all the evidence, and no one will miss him!) For the sake our of sanity, update soon!

Jesus Christ. I've been in love with this story from the start (as well as Foundling and Treading Water) and never reviewed, but this chapter...seriously. I've cried exactly three times in the past five years: when I got hit by a car in April of 2009, when I stepped on a bullet-ant nest in August of 2011, and when I read the last paragraph of this chapter today. Thank you so very much for this story.

:( oh dear. I hope she turns out okay. This made me cry. more please?

I hope Tony and Gibbs find Ziva soon! I'm glad also that you made it more realistic than other stories in that Eli was kicked out of Mossad before kidnapping his daughter. I saw some stories that had him using Mossad resources to do so and appearing to not lose his job over it. I wanted to remind those people Israel is an ally and if the Director of Mossad pulled a stunt like that, especially if it got into the media, the director would have to lose his job or the alliance would likely be in jeopardy, especially if he killed Americans while kidnapping his own daughter.

It's so sweet how Ziva showered Tony with love when he came back home. I just really like the Tony scenes in this story, because he somehow brings a lot of energy whenever he's around, and it's so nice to see.
Wow, that phone call was bad enough, but I never expected Eli to be so ruthless as to personally come, beat Ziva, and drag her with him. I really, really hope Gibbs arrives before Eli backs out of the driveway or something. Is that wishful thinking? Oh well, I have no doubt that Gibbs, Tony, and McGee will find him either way. And poor Sara, her Zeeba's all helpless, and she's left alone. And she has like a sixth sense or something, so she can really feel, if not hear, something bad happening.

Oh my God! That was so sad! :'( I can't even tell you how much I hate Eli David for what he has done! Just please don't let Ziva die! :(
I don't know how you do it, writing two so complex stories at the same time... When I started reading a couple of minutes ago I thought I was reading "Treading Water"... :b
Hoping for a happier chapter next time!

Yay an update! And finally one when I'm not extremely busy! :D
Wee Tony's home!
(And Gibbs would be a jerk if he got that mad at Tony for staying with Ziva.. Cause it's not like Sara will be wandering in there in the middle of the night.. And Tony and Ziva needed it!)
Haha... they 'fled' before morning? nice! :D - I love the domesticity of the whole scene... And yes, I know it's special because Tony JUST got home.. But I guess that's also why I like it so much :) - And go Tony for just staying home!
Ugh! I hate hate HATE Eli! HE should try being on the receiving end of everything he's put ZIva through, just for that one phone call! :(
(I still love it though - you know that! :P)
And I'm glad Ziva's reaching the point where yeah, of course his words get to her.. but she doesn't let them destroy her! (And obviously having Tony right there helps with that too!)...
Aww! Cute! Perhaps Sara should get one of those kid friendly cameras that can handle getting dropped etc.. that'll give her something to do while she's not allowed to move much (since she can take pics of people from her beanbag. (maybe she'll just start thinking pictures on Ziva's phone is really cool... but obviously they wont let her just use the phone.. so they'll get her her own camera..).. And that'll make her feel special or something too (like she's accomplishing something), once she get's them printed out on paper and can show them to everyone.. :)
Ooh yikes! That DOES indeed sound like a bad problem! (Although isn't he the director, and not the deputy director?)
Yay! A Sara/Ziva scene! And a cute, cuddly one! :D
(Uh oh.. that concerned look Sara sent Ziva? could she FEEL Eli being there? :/)
ARGH! Evil evil Eli! (ever noticed that 'evil' and 'eli' look a lot alike?)
Gibbs needs to get home FAST!
Now you really really must update very fast! Preferably before I get home from practice in... 5 hours! :/
Loooooved it! :D :D :D :D

Okay, Tony got home safe and now this?! I love you but I am not happy about this right now! Z, again with the torment and the beatings and the abuse, it's the grown up version of what happened to Sara, and she never had the chance to defend herself. How did he get past everyone? And now Sara's all alone and Gibbs didn't get home in time to save Z and Tony...they can't be without each other, it doesn't work, it never has. *sigh* I should've waited until tomorrow to read this, I'm going to be all huffy going to bed tonight because I want someone to smack Eli David and tell him to go get a life and I want someone to rescue Z and let her have her own life and...oops, being kinda demanding, sorry about that. I know it's bad form to make demands of an author but Eli darn well better pay for this stunt, and it better not be with Z's life. *scowls* Anyhow, lovely job even if I'm going to be on pins and needles until the next time :) Don't mind my rant, it's almost 3am so hopefully I can be excused. *sigh* Poor Z :(
