DiNozzo to McGee: Last time I almost died someone blew up my car! So that's twice I've almost died, and this is the *third* time! And bad stuff happens in threes! And I'm out of almosts! I'm telling you, man! This time I'm *dying*! I *know* it!

Almosts

They made it to land and back to the Navy yard after their time on the ship called Chimera. Tony went to his car and he watched as his other teammates go to their own cars as well. Driving home he decided to order a pizza because he didnt feel like making something for dinner. Picking up the pizza and heading home he unlocked the door and then relocked it as soon as he shut it then threw his backpack by the door. He made his way towards the kitchen putting the box on the counter. He got out a plate and put two slices of pizza on his plate and made his way towards the living room where he switched on the T.V. and looked through the channels to see if there was anything interesting on. Finding a movie on he sat and watched it while eating his pizza. Getting up to get a few slices more he finished what he had on his plate and sat there staring at the screen not really watching the movie. He thought about the talk he had with McGee while on the Chimera.

You know, the last time you were dying of a horrible disease, you were a little more stoic about the whole thing. McGee said

I was younger then... carefree He replied..

It was two years ago. McGee replied back.

Last time I almost died someone blew up my car! So that's twice I've almost died, and this is the *third* time! And bad stuff happens in threes! And I'm out of almosts! I'm telling you, man! This time I'm *dying*! I *know* it! He said back.

Ok, but until you are actually dead, will you please help me fix this thing?

Was he really almost out of almosts? Since working at NCIS hed been drugged, kidnapped, his car blown up, being framed for murder three times. Who knew when something would happen that would cause his death? Was it true that one day his almosts will be up? Would one day a bullet have his name on it? Would one day he be kidnapped and only come back in a body bag? Would one day his car blow up and hed be in it? Or maybe one day he would be framed for murder and it would stick and he would die in jail, or prison? Maybe one day one of the people who he put away would come back and kill him? There was so many ways for him to die and he wondered what it would be and when.

He got up and put the pizza away and turned off the T.V.. He hoped that he could get some sleep as he made his way towards the bedroom.

The End
