Okay, so here's the final chapter of Where I'm From, Abby's letter. This one is a little more descriptive than the others, but I just kind of figured that that would be McGee. So here's the final. Hope you like it.
I'm watching you lay at my side as you sleep; I could watch you forever and never get tired of hearing the little things that you let slip in your dreams. I think about how much I'm going to miss your smile; the way your laughter fills a room, the way you could always make us smile (even Gibbs). And I can honestly say that I'm going to miss bringing you Caf-Pows every morning and seeing the light in your eyes as you take the first drink. I'm going to miss everything about you Abbs.
I am more than happy at the news that you just told me. I wish that I was lucky enough to see our child grow up, to see a little black headed child run around the bull-pin annoying Tony as we both do so well. I know that this isn't something that you planned for, especially not something you planned to do alone, and I wish that I could be with you every step of the way. But if I have no choice but to leave then I'm glad to know that I'm leaving you in capable hands. Tony, Ziva, Ducky, Jen, Gibbs, even Palmer, they are all going to have their own roles in our child's life, whether it be an uncle, an aunt, grandfather, cousin; and they all know what their roles are, and they've perfected them long before I left. There our family and they love you, me, and our child. They'll protect you all and keep you safe, when I can't. Please remember how much I love you Abby and as I told you, no matter how cheesy it sounds I'm always in your heart and I'll always be there for you. Please let our child know how much daddy loves them, and even if I never get to meet them face to face, I'm always watching. I love you Abigail Scuito now and forever.
P.s. I accomplished the one thing that I've been looking for since I started out on my own after high school, I figured out where I really came from; please make sure that our child knows it too.
I'm from the front pew of a wooden white church
A courthouse clock that still don't work
Where a man's word means everything
Where moms and dads were high school flames
Gave their children grandmothers maiden name
Yes it may not sound like much
I said it may not sound like much but it's where I'm from
it's where I'm from
Where I'm from
Amazing Grace, how sweet the sound
Abby turned her head into Gibb's shoulder as she tried to muffle her sobs, "He's really gone." She whispered as she looked back at the trembling paper in her hands.
Gibbs pulled her back to him and kissed her head, "I'll keep you safe Abby. I promise." She got up as she turned to look at the members of her family, one was missing, the one that would never come back. She looked at everyone before she spoke; they all had the same sad eyes, which held unanswered questions, guilt, and the need to fulfill his last requests of them all. "Remember where he came from." Is all she said before walking to the elevator; leaving behind the ones that she needed most. The ones that she would come to count on more than ever.
Well, that's that lol. I hope you enjoyed, I'm going to write the first few chapters to 'Love Lives On' before I post so that way I know I've got them ready, so be looking for it :) Please let me know if you really enjoyed this. Thanks for all of you who have put it on alert, favorite and the ones who keep sending me great reviews (keep em coming) Thanks again.
