Ziva looked over at Tony and Gibbs, she knew neither of them would like the option but she was all for it. After all she could defend herself a lot better than a tight up eight year old. "Fine. I will go in her place. But you will first remove her gag and blind fold and then untie her."
Gibbs looked at his younger agent with a glare and a growl, but he would see where this went.
The man nodded as the pretty agent agreed to his conditions. "But you're not allowed to bring that gun with you. Maybe I should have your partner there do a cavity search on you to make sure there are no concealed weapons." He smirked, nodding at Tony as he removed the blindfolded from the girl. He then took the gag out of her mouth
Tony glanced at Ziva. He knew the guy might have been kidding, but there was an off chance that he really was going to make him search Ziva and prove she had no weapons. "I hope you know what you're doing" Tony muttered to Ziva as he glanced back at the room Gibbs had taken Tim to.
Ziva nodded and placed her gun on the floor and removed her gun from her ankle holster and her knife from her waist. "He can search me. Hell you can search me I do not care. Untie her and let her go and I will come."
Gibbs watched as his agent removed both of her guns and her knife. She was nuts and he really didn't like this plan at all. "Ziva. Don't do it. Don't play the hero we can do this without you going in."
Ziva ignored the older man which she knew could be fatal but she could die right now anyways.
Kayleigh opened her eyes and opened and closed her mouth as she started to breathe more normally although she was petrified for her life.
The man nodded watched as the agent took off her 2 guns and her knife. An offer to check her himself? That was an offer he couldn't refuse. He untied t he little girl and took her by the arm and guided her over to the agents. He handed her off to the younger one and took the woman by the arm, satisfied with his trade.
Tony knelt beside the little girl who had just come out of a hostage situation. The poor little thing looked scared to death. He slowly picked her up and took her to another room. Whatever was going to happen here, she didn't need to see it. He started checking her for any injuries. She probably needed someone to hold and protect her after that, and that should probably have been her father. He didn't want Tim to know Ziva was in danger, so he put his arms around the little girl himself instead.
Ziva went with the man as soon as she was sure that Kayleigh was in good hands. Once they were far enough away she looked back at Gibbs with a look and quickly ducked out of the way of the shot.
Gibbs knew what was coming from the look on Ziva's face so as soon as she ducked he took a shot shooting him in the head.
Tim heard a gunshot and his heart skipped a beat. Had that bastard killed his little girl? The parent in him came out again as he disobeyed his boss' orders and rushed to the apartment where all the action was. The chair was empty and Tony was gone. All that was there was Gibbs, Ziva and the body of the dead Kidnapper. He gave Gibbs a sheepish grin.
Tony tried to cover the little girl's ears when the gun went off. He trusted it was the good guys winning again. It sounded like Gibbs' gun anyway. He smiled down at the little girl in his arms. "What do you say we go find your daddy?" He suggested.
Gibbs looked up when he saw the man had rushed over and glared at him. "McGee! I told you to stay put." Just then his phone rang. "What is it abbs?"
"GIBBS, GIBBS, GIBBS I KNOW WHO DID IT! IT WAS George Hollister!"
"Yeah Abbs we know,"
Abby pouted how did he boss always know these things?
Ziva looked up at Tim and walked over to him and pushing him out of the room.
Kayleigh looked up at the older man and nodded to him, she was still terrified and wanted to see her daddy. She needed her daddy.
Tim took Ziva's hand softly. He wished he had known what had happened in the end. He looked into the other agent's eyes. Something had been on his mind lately. "Listen, I just want to thank you for everything you have been doing to help me with Kayleigh. She can be quite a handful. I was thinking that maybe you could move in with us? I mean... if you want to... it would be better to have two sets of eyes on her than one." Tim managed to get out.
Tony smiled and took the little girl by the hand. He led her back out to the hallway where he saw Tim had come out of hiding as well. He let go of the little one so she could run to her daddy.
Gibbs had already left the room to go and find Tony and Kayleigh and he saw them coming
Ziva looked up at Tim and smiled she was about to say something when..
"DADDY!" Cried Kayleigh as she ran to him.
Tim knelt down and wrapped his arms around the little girl when she came running. "Oh honey I missed you so much." Tim said as he scooped her up and spun her around. Nothing could compare to this moment. "I promise nothing like this will ever happen again!" He said, though he could never make sure of that.
Ziva smiled at the two hugging and walked up to Tim and whispered into his ear. "Yes." Before walking away from them a bit and going over to where Gibbs was to give them some time alone.
