Notes: so this is the end. I don't own the show or any of it's characters. There will be a sequel as soon as I write it and it will be set in season six. Thanks for all the reviews on this story I hope your all as pleased with the ending as I am. Anyway I hate to say goodbye to this story but every story needs an end right? So here it is the final chapter of Bonds of Baltimore chapter 14


Tony yawned stretching his arms above his head, though he quickly regretted the action when he felt it pull on his injured arm. He sat up and headed to the bathroom. He didn't bother to shave or shower as usual because it would be too much effort but he could at least brush his teeth and wash his face. He slipped into some sweats and an old Ohio State T-shirt and began to scourer his cupboards for something edible. When he found nothing he went to the fridge and searched, hoping he still had some of that chocolate pudding Dan's sister had made him. He did.

Grabbing a bowl full he slumped into his couch and flipped on the console. He hit play knowing very well that he had left Goldfinger in the player. A little Sean Connery and chocolate pudding would always cheer him up. Maybe he would watch Idiana Jones and the Last Crusade later, since that had both Sean Connery and Harrison Ford.

He was just getting to the part where Goldfinger was going to cut Bond in half when he heard a knock at his door. He didn't even bother to hit pause, he had seen this movie so many times it didn't matter what he missed he knew what happened, when he got up to answer. He looked through the peep hole to find a bouncing goth.

"Abby, what are you doing here?" he asked opening the door to let her in.

"Well I came by to make sure you were okay, cause yesterday you didn't look so pretty not that your ugly or anything I mean your like really hot and all…" She babbled.

"Abby, I get the point and I'm fine." he assured.

"Well that and I have to get my car because we're going back to D.C. and well Gibbs said you weren't coming even though he offered you a job so…" She said starting to sound albeit upset when she said the last part.

"You came to convince me to come with you," He completed and she nodded vigorously.

"Abby, I can't," He said sighing he didn't want to have to do this twice mainly because he was afraid he might crack and give in because well he wanted too.

"Don't say that," she scolded, "it is very much physically possible."

"Not what I meant and you know it," he said. She looked hurt that she hadn't been able to convince him so far and that hit him in the heart he didn't want to get close but he really wanted to say yes. She looked at him before hugging him and then she left defeated.

He sunk back into the couch not even registering what was happening in the movie. He was oblivious to the World around him until he heard his door open and close.

"Ever heard of knocking?" he asked the agent.

"Why?" Gibbs asked, Tony knew he wasn't talking about knocking but decided to go with that anyway it was better then the alternative.

"I don't know maybe so that I can have some privacy in my own home," He replied sarcastically.

"Not talking bout that," Gibbs said evenly, unfazed by what the detective had said.

"Doesn't matter," Tony replied unwilling to say anything more just hoping the man would leave it there, but knowing he wouldn't.

"Not gonna work," Gibbs said gruffly.

"I can't get close, not again." Tony spoke quietly, he hated to admit it, but Gibbs deserved an answer.


Gibbs froze at what he said. He wouldn't take the job because he didn't want to get close? For such a fine detective how come he didn't see that he would get close anywhere it, how come he didn't realize that the only difference would be if it was really true or not? Gibbs knew that with his team it was truly them caring for each other, well at least with Ducky, Abby, and even himself it was.

"Doesn't matter where you go, your always gonna get close." Gibbs found himself saying.

"Not true, not if you work with someone like Rick, or the chief." Tony spoke firmly shaking his head.

"Yeah but, even with the Ricks of the world your going to find a Dan." Gibbs said making his point the best he could.

"Maybe," Tony said seeming not to believe him.

"Would I lie to you?" Gibbs questioned. The detective looked up at him an seemed to be mulling it over before he shook his head in response.

"Good," Gibbs said, "Now pack your stuff agent DiNozzo I want you ready to go by the time I'm back from getting my coffee."

"Sure thing boss," Tony smiled, "just one question, why didn't you leave me, why bother?" he asked. Gibbs knew a lot of different ways to respond to that, but decided best to tell him the best truth he could, "I didn't leave you back in Ohio did I? Why would I leave you now?"

"Wait that was you?!" The kid was shocked by that, then again if he wasn't Gibbs would have been. He took his leave after that ordering over his shoulder that he better be ready when he got back.


When they arrived back in D.C. Gibbs gave him everything he needed, including his desk in the bull pen. His other agent wasn't it so he sent Tony down to Abby's lab to assist her, after all they had took Tony's car so it wouldn't be left behind, Ducky drove the truck back leaving Abby to be clueless.

When Tony walked into the lab he was greeted with loud music. He smiled.

"Hey, Abby." He called by way of greeting. The goth immediately turned and ran throwing herself into him for a hug. He almost went sprawling to the floor taking her with him from the impact, but managed to catch them both before it could happen.

"Tony!" she cried excitedly, "Gibbs didn't tell me he had convinced you, not that I didn't think he could it was just that I didn't know if he would and…"

"Nice to see you to Abs," He responded cutting her full blown explanation short, boy she could talk, "But I need to breath."

"Oh sorry," She apologized releasing her death grip, "So did you meet Viv yet?"

"Um… who?" He asked in answer to her question.

"Me," replied a woman who walked in followed shortly after by Gibbs, "and you are?"

"DiNozzo, Anthony DiNozzo," He introduced himself in his best James Bond voice. She rolled her eyes and Gibbs, well Gibbs whacked him upside the head.

"Hey what was that for?!" Tony cried rubbing the back of his head.

"I need a reason, DiNozzo?" He asked exiting the lab both agents quickly on his heel, leaving a giggling forensic scientist behind.
