Last chapter, so sad!!! I really don't like ending stories but it is nessicary. So here it is, the final chapter. T_T
William Marshall had not only been interrogated thoroughly, he'd also been denied any kind of medical attention for his eyes. Gibbs had pushed him harder than anyone had imagined possible, in fact, it bordered torture. The lab was back in order, Abby was back at work, using her "boys" to get as much physical evidence as she could. He leaned against the doorframe, watching her with interest.
Only Abby, he laughed to himself, would stay here willingly after the number of times she's gotten shotten at or threatened. He checked his watch, grimaced when it said that it was only 5:30, all he wanted to do was sleep. Sort of.
Unable to resist any longer, he stepped into the blast of the music, wrapped his arms around her as she focused on the screen in front of her. "What's all this?" He smiled as he tried to decipher tech-talk.
"Mcgee got his hard drive." She sipped the caf-pow that sat on the desk next to her elbow. "This guy was insane to the highest level. I mean, he had everything from pictures of all of us together to the brand of purple lipstick I wear. Only thing he didn't know about was us, that happened too quickly for him to realize what exactly I'd do for you."
"Abs," He whispered, just a twinge of regret in his heart, "You could have gotten yourself hurt, it was suicidal." She whirled around, stayed in his arms as she glared at him.
"Don't you think I know that, Tony? I didn't care, I thought you understood that. I don't care if I live or die, as long as your alright." Her hands rested on his chest, felt his heart beat under his shirt.
"I understand, that's what hurts. If you die, I'm not going to be alright. You'd have given your life for nothing." He brushed his lips against hers gently, steeped himself in the sensation. "I love you, Abs, so your going to have to swear that you'll not do something like that again."
"I won't, because you know what,Tony? I managed to fall in love with a movie-obsessed womanizer and that's fine with me." She smiled as she kissed his cheek. "Now, let's go home."
His arm stayed around her waist as she shut down all of her equipment and they stepped into the elevator. As the doors closed he pulled her against him, kissing her passionately before grinning at her with that charming smile he had. "Miss Sciuto," He was suddenly formal in his tone, "How would you like to marry that same movie-obsessed womanizer?"
"No." Her smile dropped suddenly, watched as he stepped away from her. His face was full of shock and hurt. "I said I managed to fall in love with a womanizer, I never said that I hadn't watched him change and fall even more in love with him. No, the man I will marry is a sweet man, who never fails to make a person smile." Her grin was back, laughing at him with her eyes.
"Oh, I see." He rocked back and forth on his heels, "Who's that?"
She threw her arms around his neck, squeezing him tightly. "You, silly," She laughed out loud now, "I would like nothing more than to become Mrs. Abigail DiNozzo."
What she didn't know was that Tony had told the others what he was planning a couple of hours ago. And Mcgee, in all of his nerdyness, hacked into the security cameras for the elevator. They were all watching and were waiting for them when they stepped out of the elevator. There was a great big grin on Mcgee's face, a tear in Ziva's eye, and a warm smile on Gibbs face.
As they all surrounded the happy couple Tony knew, you couldn't get a happier ending than this, at least not at NCIS. But Abby knew better, this was not the end, and it wouldn't always be happy, but happily ever now was good enough for her.
THE END -THANK YOU TO ALL OF MY LOYAL REVIEWERS, YOUR ALL SO AMAZING!!!
