The Only Fear, is Fear Itself -Chapter 32

A/N: My AN is at the bottom. :) I hope you guys enjoy, I'm so sorry for not updating sooner.

It was morning, and the sun was shining into the draft windows.

Yawning, Abby stretched, and first questioned where she was at, but remembered she had came to Mike's.

Getting up, she padded off to the bathroom to freshen up and shower, but the image of someone on the couch caught her attention.

"Gibbs? What the hell are you doing here?" Abby yelped, surprised, and a bit angry.

"Hey Abs. We, need to talk."

"Really? Well, sorry, I'm not in the mood for discussion." She said, turning around and heading into the bathroom, locking the door behind her.

Gibbs sighed, and shook his head. Getting up, he figured he could at least make the three of them breakfast. Maybe then, Abby would talk to him. Maybe.

Footsteps came into the kitchen, as Abby started to enter. "Mmm sounds good Mike, what's cookin'?" She stopped, as she saw who it was. Sighing, she stayed in her spot.

"Abby, it's just breakfast."

"Gibbs.." Abby whined. "What are you doing here? I'm here to think. Without you. I'm here for air, for space."

"You actually get that, with Mike here?" Gibbs asked, smirking.

She rolled her eyes. "Oh geez, get a grip. Mike's great. Fine. Doesn't bother me." She said, pausing. "You on the other hand-"

"Look, breakfast, and we talk. If you want me to leave after, I will. Only if you promise to come back to DC when you're ready."

Abby thought for a moment. Torn, but deciding she'd give him a chance, she nodded. "Fine. Breakfast. Talk." She paused. "Then I decide."

Gibbs nodded. "You decide."

Moments later, breakfast was on the table, and they both started eating.

Pancakes and scrambled eggs, her favorite.

"Abs, you have stayed away from the alcohol right?"

"Of course." She said, pausing. "I want this baby, whether or not you do, and I'm keeping it save. Even if it means keeping her heart from breaking in the future."

A moment of silence passed.

"Abby, I didn't mean what I said. I'm sorry. It was a bad case, and I was having a hard time, trying not to get too involved." He confessed.

Abby looked up at him. She saw the honesty in his face. "You're being serious."

"Yes. Abby, I want you, and I want our child. And I really am sorry, for what I said."

She kept her eyes on his face, and tears made it's way down her cheeks.

"Oh Gibbs..." Abby said, softly, as she got up and hugged him tightly.

"I love you, my Silver haired Fox."

"I love you too, Abs."

"You ever pull this again, I'll make sure Mike comes up to DC to give you a talkin' to."

Gibbs chuckled. He had no doubt. "I know. And it won't happen again.


From the front door, Mike watched the two, and smiled. They both deserved each other, and being happy. Chuckling, he turned back and headed back down to the beach.

A/N: I'm VERY sorry it took so long to update. Between being busy, Doctors, and being writers' blocked, that's what you get. I'll try to keep updating. Cause, this story WILL have an ending. One day. =]
