Tomorrow came to early and it was now time for me to go home. In a way I was quite sad to be leaving Washington D.C. but I was a bit anxious to return home to start my new life. Many goodbyes were said and now as I hugged Aunt Kate I looked up at her and said, "You coming up soon?"

She smiled down at me and ruffled my hair like she always did, "Oh yeah."

We said goodbye with tears in our eyes and before leaving to get on the plane back home, I hugged Gibbs. "You take care of her 'kay?" I said to him, the tears prickling in my eyes. Gibbs nodded and then we were off. I sat next to the window Ianto at my side, our fingers twined together. He was my rock and I was really thankful for him.

When my mom had fallen asleep, I looked over at him and said, "Thank you Ianto." He looked a bit confused, asking for what. I then smiled and kissed him lightly, "For being my rock." Ianto smiled at me and I rested my head on his shoulder and we talked the entire flight home. After a while, the plane landed and we made our way through the bustling airport ready to go home and go to sleep. I saw my father waiting for me and my sister, Melanie, and also someone else. "Jack!" I screamed out loudly not caring who heard and ran to my older brother.

"Hey squirt!" He said with a smile on his tanned face. For over a year, Jack had been fighting in Iraq unable to come home but now, my big brother was home where he should be. It was at that moment that I knew that life was going to get better as I looked to each of my family members because now my family was back together again just how they should be.
