Author's Notes: This is a really short piece that I thought of years ago, like when Kate was actually still on NCIS so that should tell you how long it's been. I have been meaning to write this out for a long time but never got to it. I would like to have more of a story to go with this but I just can't think of anything else than this one scene. I finally wrote this out this morning but I don't have a beta reader so any mistakes are mine. I don't own NCIS but I do have a really cool NCIS ball cap, a real NCIS ball cap, not like the ones on the show, a real honest to goodness NCIS agent ball cap. Hope you enjoy, would love to see some reviews. Thanks! BTW, this will probably be my only NCIS fic ever.
The NCIS team were all sitting around the bullpen getting ready to leave for the night when Abby showed up catching their attention.
"Hey, Abs. What's up?" asked Tony.
"Check out the Duck Man," she said as she pointed over to their friend, Donald Mallard dressed in a full kilt.
"What's with the skirt?" Tony asked with a twinkle in his eye.
"It's a kilt, DiNozzo," said Gibbs as he walked up behind him and smacked the back of his head.
"Thank you, Gibbs. I have my reunion next week at the University of Edinburgh and I thought that I would try my old kilt on to see if it still fits."
"Well, Ducky, I think you look very nice."
"Thank you Caitlyn, dear."
Tony looked closely at Ducky then as he was talking to Abby and Gibbs, he turned to Kate and said quietly, "So, Kate, what do you think?"
"About what?" she asked.
"About what a Scotsman wears under his kilt."
"I am not going to ask," she said her voice just loud enough to get Gibbs' attention.
"Not going to ask what, Kate?"
"Nothing," she said hoping that they would drop the subject.
"Ducky, Kate has a question for you," Gibbs said.
"What is that dear?"
"Nothing," she insisted, not sure who she wanted to kick more, Tony for starting this or Gibbs for not letting the subject drop.
"Actually, Duck. I think Kate wants to know what is worn under the kilt," he said with an amused grin on his face.
"What's worn under the kilt?" Ducky asked.
"Tony was wondering, not me!"
"My dear, Caitlyn, nothing is worn under the kilt. Everything is in perfect working order," he replied with a wink.
Tony barked with laughter as Kate blushed furiously, Gibbs just smiled and looked down at his desk. Abby tipped her head from one side to the other, pigtails flipping about and just said one word.
