Todd: 18 Tali: 15

Graduation

"You two better get your butts down here or we're going to be late," Ziva called from the front door. Todd, dressed in a suit, and Tali, in a yellow sundress, came barreling down the stairs. Tony came up the porch stairs.

"That was Gibbs, everyone else is already there," Tony said.

"Everyone out to the car now," Ziva said.

Twenty minutes later, the quartet was in front of the school. Ziva hugged Todd and kissed him on the cheek.

"Good luck, I love you," Ziva said.

"See you later, mom," Todd said as he ran off to the back stage door. Ziva, Tony, and Tali headed in the main entrance for the school and walked into the auditorium and found where everyone else was sitting. Gibbs was sitting on the end of the row with Jenny next to him. There were three empty seats and then McGee and Abby. Abby was holding their new baby in her arms, wrapped in red blankets. Sitting in the row in front of them was Maddie, Sarah, Palmer, and Ducky.

Twenty minutes later, they had started handing out diplomas. Finally, Todd was called.

"Todd Marcus DiNozzo," the announcer called. Todd walked across the stage and took his diploma from the principal. Tony, Ziva, Tali, Gibbs, Jenny, McGee, and Abby all stood up and cheered loudly, causing Todd to give a celebratory air punch.

After everyone had been called, the announcer stepped back up to the podium.

"Ladies and Gentleman, may I present to you the class of 2026!"
