NCIS: Prank Wars
A/N: Yes folks, this, is the finale of the story. The ending. But, not the ending of the series, good right?
So, my next story will be posted either tonight, or first thing tomorrow when I get up. Cause, I'm already on like, the 7th or 8th chapter of it! Nice right?
I really hope you did enjoy this story, and I hope you pop in for my new one. It'll be worth your while.
The next day Ellie came in, without her laptop, her Zune, or her phone.
Tony glanced her way, and glared.
As Gibbs took his seat at his desk, she stood in the middle of the desks.
"Um, I have something to say. Yesterday, was a bad day for all of you. The virus on the computers, the pictures.. Well, that was me. I did it. I created a program, I hacked. I altered pictures. Nobody else was responsible for this, but me." She paused, seeing some confusion, and some anger on their faces, except for Gibbs.
"I didn't mean it to cause any harm, I just thought you guys could use some fun. You guys could, but I guess not in that way. So, I'm apologizing for what I did. If you can forgive me, thanks. If not, I completely understand."
She still saw both the confusion and anger on everyone's face.
Sighing, she knew everyone hated her now. They had a good reason to.
Turning, she headed towards the elevator. Pushing the button, she waited.
As she waited, she looked back to the desks.
Hearing the ding, Ellie entered the elevator, and let the door shut, slowly, taking her to the lab.
On the way down, she thought of what she would say to Abby.
Arriving, she realized, time was up to think.
Entering the lab, she looked for Abby.
Ellie followed Abby's voice to the back room.
Abby smiled. "Hi El."
"Look, I need to talk to you."
"Okay, go for it."
"Your caf-pow yesterday? That... was me."
"Yeah. I just thought you all could use some pick-er-up-er. Some fun. You all do, but not in that way."
She said, as she looked down to the floor.
"So, I'm.. saying sorry. You don't have to forgive me, cause Tony doesn't. I already dealt with Gibbs. I already apologized to the others."
Both were silent for a moment.
"I should go, before I cause any other bad things to happen." Ellie turned to leave the lab.
"I forgive you."
Ellie stopped and turned around.
"You forgive me? Why?"
"Because, I was once like you. I pulled lots of pranks on people. Just not the team."
She smiled a little. "Yeah, not a wise decision."
"You're welcome. Come here." Abby held her arms out, for a hug.
Ellie smiled and gave Abby a hug in return.
"I should go. I need to get out maybe, or go do something."
"Alright! I'll be here!"
"Of course Abs, you're always here."
"You got it!"
Ellie pushed the elevator button, and again, waited.
As it came, she entered and pushed the "close" button, to close it, but decided not to press any floors.
Instead, she took up the residence in the corner, like she did the night before.
Minutes later, she felt the elevator move up, getting ready to pick someone up.
The doors opened.
She looked up, and saw Tony.
She started to get up, and said something about getting out of his way, but he grabbed her arm, gently, and told her to sit back down.
Sitting back down in her corner, she watched as Tony flicked the emergency switch, and sat down as well, opposite of her.
"I didn't mean... for bad things to come of this entire thing. I just, meant for you guys to find it funny. Well, I definitely fucked that up."
"I guess, something just hit me. You and Gibbs are both right. I humiliated people. I'm even damn near like my father. A little secret, only him and I know, is the reason my parents are dead. My dad was a druggie. He couldn't pay up one time. The dealer made his life hell, and he snapped. Killed my mom, and himself, while I watched."
"Its alright. But, Gibbs is right. I really am, damn near like my father, and it'll always be the truth. Like father, like daughter."
"Not true. I think you have a mind of your own." Tony admitted.
"Maybe I do, maybe I don't. Who knows." She shrugs.
It was silent for a moment.
"I forgive you."
"Why? Cause I told you what happened to my parents?"
"No. I got to thinking earlier. I'm not innocent either, and I have pulled pranks on others. I guess I put myself in your shoes, and I figured seeing how pissed Gibbs was, it put you in your place." Tony explained.
"Yeah, it definitely did." She said, pausing. "So, are we..."
"Ok? Yeah, we are." Tony smiled.
"Thanks Tony. I do have to admit, you are like the cool brother I never had."
Tony laughed. "Well, I'm just gonna have to train you to be the little sister who can do things without getting caught for it."
Ellie smiled. "Really?"
"I can do with that."
Tony held out his hand, in a truce.
"Truce?" He asked.
"You bet." She shook his hand, sealing the pact.
"You're welcome." He said, getting up and flipping the switch again, turning the elevator on. He helped her up. "Now, let's go face Gibbs. He's probably agitated his office was out of order."
"You're right, he probably was." She smiled.
The doors opened to find, none other than Gibbs.
Both of them laughed together.
"Yup, he definitely wanted his office back." Ellie said, as she saw Gibbs smile.
From then on, no more pranks were played, and all was well at NCIS.
Until the next time.
Hope you all enjoyed!
