Tony DiNozzo sat at his desk writing in a folder that needed to be finished. They haven't yet gotten a case yet and he hoped that they would soon. Gibbs, Ziva and McGee were at their desks too writing in their folders too. Someone walked up to his desk and he hasn't noticed yet until they talked.

"Hello, Anthony."

Tony jerked his head up and looked at the person in front of him and finally got up.

"Hello, Sir."

"I need to talk to you, now."

"I can't. I need to finish these." Tony pointed to the pile of folders that he needed to finish.

"You will talk to me, now."

Gibbs was watching the two.

"Go ahead, DiNozzo you can finish them later." Gibbs said as he looked at Tony wondering who this man was and the four men with him.

"We can use the conference room upstairs." Tony said as he walked away from his desk and the five people followed him to the elevator.

The three people below watched as they entered the conference room and wondered what that was about.

The two bodyguards walked in first and then Tony and his father and the two other bodyguards walked in too.

"What do you want?"

Mr. DiNozzo walked up to Tony and slapped him across the face splitting his lip and a drop of blood trail down his chin.

"Nice one. How am I going to explain this one?" Tony glared at his father. Was he still his father since he disowned him.

"Like you always do lie about it. I do not like to be waiting you know that Anthony."

"Yes, I know. Why are you here? I haven't seen you since you disowned me."

"I want you to come home Anthony."

"No, I am not coming home. I like it here."

"You can't possibly like it here, Anthony. You'll screw up one of these days and the people that you work for probably don't like you either. You're worthless you have always been worthless."

"If I am so worthless than why are you here wanting me to come back?"

"Because you are an idiot Anthony. Somebody needs to look after you."

"No." I like it here. These people are my family." Tony yelled at his father.

"You are going to end up in the gutter Anthony."

"I haven't yet."

"No, but you did screw up didn't you Anthony?" You are responsible for your past Directors death are you not?"

"It wasn't my fault."

"Oh, Anthony it was your fault. You chose to go somewhere else instead of making sure your Director was safe. You disappoint me Anthony."

"Like that's so hard to do. You've never been proud of me even when I was a little kid."

"You are responsible for your Director's death just like you were responsible for your Mother's death."

"I was ten years old when you laid that guilt on me. What was I supposed to do? I was just a child."

"If you weren't at school goofing off then you would have been home to help your mother."

"You want to know why I was late coming home? It sure wasn't because I was goofing off it was because I was helping two people with their work. They needed help and I volunteered. That was why I was late coming home that day."

"I can force you to come home Anthony." His father said as he nodded to the guards.

"You mean you would have them beat me up? Like you did when I came home unexpectedly when I was sixteen and when I told you that I wanted to become a police officer? You just watched as they beat me up. You didn't even try to stop them. Not like you would have anyways. Once I became big enough to actually challenge you when you beat me up you had them beat me up."

"Fine, we will have this talk later."

"No, we won't. I never want to talk to you again and if you, or them ever try to beat me up I will arrest you. It is against the law to hit a federal agent you know."

His father stared at him and walked out of the room. Tony paced and then leaned his head against the wall and then pounded his fists on the wall then turned and slid down the wall. He stared into space for a minute and then got up. He straightened his tie and made sure his shirt wasn't wrinkled and then walked out. He made it to the bullpen and told them that he was going to get some coffee.

When he came back he sat down with a coffee cup in his hand.

"What happened to your lip, DiNozzo?" asked Gibbs.

"I saw a pretty girl in the coffee shop and forgot where I was going." He looked at Gibbs and flashed a grin and then returned to his work. Gibbs watched as Tony worked and wasn't really buying that story. Gibbs also noticed that McGee and David were watching Tony too.

Then they too returned to work. Finally it was time to go home and Tony was the first to leave they watched him leave and then he too got up and went towards the elevators. After Gibbs was gone McGee and Ziva mouthed the words Abby and they too took off to Abby's lab.

They got there as they heard Gibbs say to Abby.

"I need you to pull up the video from the conference room at 2:00 today. Tony had some visitors and I want to know who they were. He looked at the two who also entered the lab behind him.

"Okay, got it." Abby said as she smiled at Ziva and McGee.

They watched the man slap Tony across the face and they sat there in horror as they heard everything. They never knew that Tony was abused as a child. They didn't know what to think and they all went their separate ways after finding out that the visitor was Tony's father and he had hit his son.

The End
