Chapter 7 – Three weeks later

Gibbs and Lisa were standing in the doorway of the big mansion watching Tony down in the drive. He was just putting his father into the back of one of the FBI's cars.

"He didn't have to do that, we could have made the arrest."

"No Lisa, he did have to do it. He just needed us to be here while he did it. He'll be able to move on now."

"Do you know everything that man put him through growing up."

"No, and I doubt that you do either. I just know some of it. I can imagine though. Tony is strong Lisa, even though sometimes, heck a lot of the times it seems like he's not. He became a cop because of the things he saw his father doing. And he worked his whole career to bring a stop to it. He's been hurt a lot. Now it's time for him to heal. You've helped him a lot with that, haven't you."

"I just helped him get through this moment in time. But I think you're the one who helped make him strong enough to go through with this. You and your team. You're his family.

"Yeah, we are." Gibbs smiled at her. "He's going to miss you."

"No he won't, I put in a request for transfer to D.C. I'm planning on keeping him."

"Well then, welcome to the family."

They watched as Tony turned and came back towards them, a big smile lighting up his face.
