"Abby Scuito, will you marry me?" Gibbs words burned in her ears as she stood
there in the bullpen, all eyes on her, Gibbs on one knee waiting for her answer.
"Yes! Yes! Oh G*d Yes!" Gibbs slipped the ring on her finger and stood up, hugging
and kissing her. The entire squad room erupted in cheers. Jenny stood on the stairs that went
up to her office and MTAC starring down. She was happy for them, but at the same time,
sad. Gibbs and Abby had been seeing each other for about four months, five months after she
and Gibbs had split.
She knew she had to tell him, but, she was scared. She wasn't for sure that it was for
the best, but, either way, it had to be done. She walked into her office and sat down, took a
deep breath, and called Gibbs desk phone. Five minutes later, he walked into her office.
"You wanted to see me Jen?"
"First of all, I want to congratulate you on your engagement. Second of all, we need
to talk." She adjusted herself in the chair and continued .Gibbs sat down across from her.
"Okay. Talk away."
"You're going to be a daddy."
"I am." Jethro looked at her with a confused stare. "I'm six months pregnant with
your baby, Jethro."
"You…You are pregnant?"
"And you are just telling me this NOW?"
"I know I should have told you a lot sooner. But, I saw how happy you and Abby were together. I guess I didn't want anything to split you two apart." Gibbs stood up and
walked around her desk. She stood up to face him. Gibbs hugged her gently, her belly
pressing against him.
"I may be marrying Abby, But I still want to be in my child's life."
"I want you to be there too. For your little girl."
"A girl…Do you…."
"Have a name picked out? Olivia Caitlin.."
"Hmmm. I like it."
"Yeah…if you need anything, call me."
"I will." Gibbs sauntered out of her office and back down to the squad room. Now he
had to break the news to Abby.
That night, Gibbs sat with Abby on the couch, enjoying the crackling of the fire. He
put his arm around her and she laid her head on his shoulder.
"Jens pregnant." Abby sat up and looked at him.
"She is? Aww…I bet she so excited and-"
"The baby's mine."
"Jens baby…I'm the father."
