So, this has been in my mind for a while, and I finally got it out, hope you like it...

Harry sat on the backless bench alone. He shivered slightly, and pulled his pitiful coat tighter around him, as the cool October wind whipped through the playground. The other children didn't seem to notice the chill as they ran and played with each other.

Harry desperately wanted to join them, but Dudley's gang was watching him from across the playground. Harry knew the only reason they weren't hunting him were the recess monitors.

He watched in defeat as the other children laughed and shrieked in their games. A group of girls were playing with a jump-rope while some others had taken over the swings. The field behind the playground was devoted to multiple football matches.

Harry wished he had the courage to join them. He loved the game, and, with his speed and size, was one of the best players when they played during PE. He knew that, anywhere else, he would be playing half-back on one of the teams. But he knew that it would never happen. The other boys were just as scared of Dudley as Harry was.

"Why don't you go play?" a voice suddenly asked him. He didn't recognize it, with its American accent.

Harry turned in surprise to see a red-haired girl smiling at him. He looked around to make sure he was the only other one there.

"You're talking to me" he simply stated.

"Of course I'm talking to you" she giggled.

"Why?" he bluntly asked.

"Why not?" she shrugged in reply.

Harry glanced across the playground at his cousin. Dudley's face was dark, and he was cracking his knuckles. As Harry watched him, he started to lead his gang towards the pair.

"Bad stuff happens around me" he murmured.

The girl just laughed, and held her hand out.

"I'm Kelly Gibbs" she told him.

"Harry Potter" he replied, taking her hand.

"I just moved here" she told him. "My daddy's a marine."

Harry was just about to ask what a marine was when a voice cut in.

"Who's yer friend, Potter?" one of Dudley's thugs asked, when the group reached the bench.

"My name's Kelly" the girl replied, her tone slightly darker than before. "What do you want?"

"Just wanted to let you know you're sitting next to a freak" Dudley sneered as Harry, before pushing his cousin to the ground.

"Hey, that's not nice" Kelly objected, jumping to her feet.

Piers laughed from next to Dudley, and pushed her as well. She tripped over the bench, and hit her head on a rock.

Tears sprang to her eyes as she felt the back of her head. She pulled her hand away to see blood.

"What did you do that for?" Harry gasped, crawling over to Kelly.

Dudley's eyes grew wide and he ran off, his gang not far behind.

"Are you okay?" Harry asked Kelly.

"I think so" Kelly replied.

"I told you bad things happen around me" he told her, leaning against the bench. "You should go play with some other kids."

Kelly shrugged and grinned.

"Rule number one: never abandon your friends" she told him.

"What?" Harry asked.

Before Kelly could reply, however, a shadow passed over them. They both looked up to see one of the recess monitors. She looked at both of them, sitting on the ground, the blood still on Kelly's hand.

"What's going on" she asked.

"I tripped, ma'am" Kelly replied.

The woman nodded and helped her up.

Kelly smiled at Harry as she was led away, and Harry's heart lifted.

He had a friend.

So, I have thought of continuing, but its up to you, review, please, and tell me, if you want more, should it stick to canon? or should Gibbs save Harry? which ever you want!:)

Oh, and the rule Kelly tells Harry, is a modified version of the actual Rule 1, I just don't think Shannon would let Gibbs tell their daughter to never screw over her partner, you know what I mean? maybe, maybe not, whatever.

PS. I own neither Harry Potter nor NCIS, although, I do wish I did, hmmm
