God he hated it. Being gone for three years, so soon after he had celebrated his daughter Kelly's fifth birthday. Even more so being away from his beautiful wife whom he had married just that many years ago, while only seeing her for about two of them.

Oh yeah. He hated it.

Gunnery Sergeant Leroy Jethro Gibbs set his bags down outside his front door. Would she have stayed? Waited for him to return home? Or had she left? Run off with another man? He stood there, in front of the door, hand hovering over then door knob, mulling over these questions.

Shaking his head to rid his brain of these awful thought, Shannon's not like that. he thought to himself, and opened the door.


He set his bags on the ground upon entering the home.

"Shannon?" he tentatively called out to what seemed to be an empty house.

He waited a minute or two before he chose to try and find her. He walked upstairs first. Nothing. Downstairs, he checked down the hall. Nada. where could she be? he thought. Everything of hers was still where she had left it when he left. He walked into the living room. Zilch. As he headed for the kitchen, he caught his foot on something and stumbled slightly. Muttering a few curses under his breath, he looked down to see what on earth was lying in the middle of the floor.

A small model car.

Frowning, he picked it up and continued his trek to the kitchen.

And that's where he found her. She was sitting at the kitchen table, reading a book.

"Shannon?"

The young read-headed woman slowly tore her gaze away from the novel she was currently engrossed in, to find her husband, standing in the kitchen's entry-way.

"Jethro?" she whispered. She couldn't believe that after three long years, he was finally home.

Jethro watched as his wife drop her book and practically throw herself into his arms. Tears of happiness fell from her expressive green eyes.

"Oh Jethro!" she sobbed and hugged him tightly. "I've missed you so much!"

"I've missed you too Shan." he smiled as he felt his wife's arms tighten around him.

They stood there for a few minutes, in each others loving embrace, before Shannon slowly pulled away and looked into her lovers eyes.

Gibbs stared back at the woman. God how he had missed her. A small smile grazed his lips.

Then he remembered the car. Slowly, he pulled the hand that was holding the small toy in front of them both.

Shannon looked at the toy and saw the confusion in the blue orbs that were currently staring at her.

She opened her mouth to say something, when she heard a small yawn come from the living room. Jethro had obviously heard it as well, considering the quizzical look he shot her as the sound of small feet padded through the living room and into the kitchen.

Gibbs turned around to find a small boy with short brown hair and green eyes, dragging a pale blue blanket behind him, standing in the threshold.

He watched as the boy, who had to be no more than two by the looks of it, slowly raise his arms to be picked up.

Jethro glanced at his wife who gave him an encouraging smile.

Slowly, he went over and picked him up. The boy immediately wrapped his arms around the grown mans neck and rest his head on his shoulder and yawn.

He turned to Shannon "Who is this?" he asked.

"His name is Anthony."

He nodded.

"Who's is he?"

Shannon sighed.

"He's yours Jethro." she said quietly. "His name's Anthony Jethro Gibbs."
