Chapter 5: Rescue?
Summary: Abby and Tony are kidnapped only to lead to a life neither one thought was possible.
"Abs, Zoe doesn't look so good."
"What?!? Tony, she's fine! Go back downstairs before our lover misses you! Besides, I will never forgive you if you leave him by himself!"
Tony had to smile; she knew which buttons to push and when to press them. Kissing his daughter's forehead, and his 'wife's' lips, he rushed back downstairs.
"Everything's going to be fine, isn't it, Miss Zoe? …Yes it is!"
Abby smiled as she placed her daughter next to her twins' sleeping form. If someone had told her two years ago she'd be a mother of twin daughters—not to mention two 'husbands'—she would have surely laughed.
"Shh, Chloe, your daddy will be down soon. He needs the newest evidence...and Mommy needs another Caf!Pow."
"Ok, you should know…before you…we—"
Abby felt the air knocked out of her as her back hit the wall. Her already injured head was screaming at this all to stop, but her heart…
"Look, whatever you want…just tell me, I can---"
"I said shut up!"
The black t-shirt she was wearing was already wearing thin as the man grabbed the neck of it and pulled. Left only in her black lace bra and pants, she began to panic.
Tony was going insane. First he and Abby are kidnapped, wake up in some dirty cell and now…now she was trying to MacGyver their way out of here. He literally could hear Gibbs screaming at him, asking him why he allowed Abby to take the brunt of something he should have---
"Agent DiNozzo…care to tell me where Ms. Scuito is?"
Tony thought of the only thing possible…'oh shit!'
"McGee! I need their cells traced NOW!"
"I'm trying, Boss. I It's just that---"
"I don't give a damn what it is! Find them! Ziva!"
"Use all of your contacts. I don't care, just---I want them home safe."
"I'll make the calls."
"Ok, I've picked up Abby's phone but---"
"But what? McGee?"
"It's at your address."
"Grab your gear!"
"What's up, Boss?"
"Dead Lieutenant found in a park. Tony, gas up the truck. Ziva, McGee, come with me."
"Hush little babies, don't you cry…your daddies and Mommy are gonna get the bad guys."
There were few moments when Abby found herself alone with her two girls. Since their births both Tony and Gibbs had been over-protective of all of them. But just at this moment…
Abby smiled as she looked down at her two twins. One was fair skinned with dark hair and the other was darker skinned with light hair. "Perfect anomaly", the doctor said…Abby loved it. After all, nothing in their lives up until this moment had been "normal", why start now?
"What'a mean my place, McGee?"
"Well, I mean…your, uh…house…address, Boss."
Gibbs rushed out of the squad room and broke every speed limit known to each state. He knew why she had gone there…he just didn't want to think he had any cause for her being taken.
"Well, you know what they say, if you can't take care of your own hostages then—"
"Do you honestly think I won't hesitate to shoot either you or the scientist? The way I see it, Agent DiNozzo…you are both important to the man I am trying to make pay. So if I were you, I'd—"
Tony waited for the punch line; however, their captor never finished. Looking up, he saw Abby "standing" behind the man---holding a pipe---and out of breath.
"See? I told you I could---"
Tony knew enough not to hesitate, stepping over the fallen man, he picked up Abby as she fell to the ground and ran. Even though he had no clue where they were being held, or where he was going, he ran.
"Tony, as I told you before, they are fine. Now…have McGee or Ziva bring me up the evidence. I don't think you or our fearless leader can do it without---"
"Without what, Abs?"
"Shit! Gibbs, you—"
Abby had spun around at the sound of the man invading her work space. Since she knew she was pregnant her senses had become quite astute…even to the point of knowing when Gibbs was there. However, almost a year later, she felt herself falter.
"I didn't hear you."
"It's fine, Abs. I---"
"It's not fine, Gibbs! I used to be able to! What if someone were to break in again? What if I couldn't hear them, huh?"
Gibbs watched as she rushed around her tables, bypassing her computers and specimen jars, picking up the most (in his mind anyway) precious items in the area…
"Gibbs, what if someone…we've got to find somewhere safe! I'm thinking a safe-room off my lab. Just for now. I mean, it'd have to be semi-permanent, but---"
Gibbs took in her worried look…most days he could forget the terror he felt whenever he learned both Abby and Tony were taken, but days like today…
"Okay. Whatever you want."
He seemed to live to see her smiled nowadays. Since getting them back he had learned how precious her up-beat positivity was to him and the team.
