McGee looked in the mirror, a smile on his face. Here he was wearing his own clothes instead of the ugly, orange jumpsuits from the hospital. One year ago today, he was a confused boy sitting in a hospital room thinking of how easy death could be. Now, a completely different person, Timothy McGee would re-enter the world a man of clear thought.
"So it's true then?" McGee turned around to see Alaska standing in the door frame, her arms crossed against her chest. Her curly hair was cut a bit shorter, it now reaching her shoulders. "My, my baby Flinch has grown so much in a year." She laughed and sat down on Kalvin's bed, "So you're leaving then?"
McGee nodded, "Yeah, I'm ready to fight the bad guys again." He smiled at her, "Aren't girls not allowed on this wing?"
Alaska shrugged her shoulders, "I dunno," she then laughed, "I still can't believe it, Flinch a NCIS agent." She laughed again and then pulled out a picture frame. "Kalvin and I don't want you to forget us, should've given Liam one too." Liam had gotten out earlier than expected and was now back in his high school a legend according to his letter. Alaska handed him the frame, it was of Kalvin, Alaska, and him all smiling. McGee was about to express his great gratitude when suddenly he was crushed in a hug. "Thank you." She said to him.
"For what?" McGee asked in confusion.
"For being a friend." McGee smiled at Alaska, both of them smiling past their tears, and crushed her into another hug. "I'll never forget you Timothy McGee."
"I'll never forget you Alaska Hanson."
"Oi! What about me?" Kalvin stood in the doorway, a mock glare on his features. His skin now held a light tan, his hair short and slightly spiky. He smiled at them, "Group hug." McGee and Alaska laughed but pulled together, three friends who conquered the unbeatable. Three friends that would never forget each other.
After saying goodbye to everyone he had cared to meet, McGee found himself outside in the sunshine. It felt different now, more bright and warm, like when you first see the sun after a long storm. To McGee, it couldn't get any better.
"Timmy!" He was crushed into a hug by Abby, he had missed her so much. McGee hugged her tightly, now surrounded by Kate, Ducky, and Gibbs.
" 'Bout time Probie," McGee turned to look at Tony, his facial expression a teasing one. He crushed the older man in a hug. McGee was so lucky, he couldn't count the amount of blessing's that he received daily. Now, surrounded by the family that loved him, Timothy McGee couldn't feel anymore fixed. This was his zenith, the highest point in his life. This is where he felt at home.
