Author's Note:

Okay, so this is my very first attempt at a fan-fiction story, but since I'm addicted to NCIS and desperately need an outlet for my anxiety as I wait for Sept 22 (Season 7 premiere! Yay!) I figured I'd create a story out of my random musings and scribblings. This story is set after the events of "Aliyah" and it is about the team finding Ziva again. Not entirely sure of where this story will go, but I have a good deal of it in my head, so I figured I'd try to get it typed out and share it with you.

I've read so many good stories on this site about this topic, but I still wanted to try my hand at it, especially since my musings are somewhat different from those I've read. However, sometimes I've seen similarities in the things I've been thinking and/or scribbling down already and the things I've read, so I fear that what I have already read may affect my writing…and therefore I apologize if I inadvertently use anything someone else has come up with. As far as I know, this is MY thoughts and ideas…this is my own work.

So there you have it...hope you enjoy. Reviews would be greatly appreciated, especially suggestions and things that you like/don't like (constructive criticism only, please!) and maybe things you think I should add.

BTW: I don't know if I need to add this or not, but I see disclaimers on many stories, so I'll add one just to be safe...

DISCLAIMER: I do not own NCIS, I don't own the characters, I will be quoting some things from scenes in the episodes, but the story you are about to read is simply fiction, from my own thoughts. Okay. Hope that's good enough. :)
