Song: "Wuthering Heights" by Kate Bush (As you may know, several artists have covered it.)


Chapter Fifty-One: Wuthering Heights

In response, the Goth turned away and headed over to CJ, thinking hard. After a few seconds, she made her decision, told it to the DJ, and went back to Kort's daughter. Abby grabbed her arm and dragged her over to the stage, ordering, "Get up there!"

Calista shrugged, mike in hand, and did as Abby directed. From what she knew of the forensic scientist, she could murder you without leaving a trace if provoked.

When the song started playing, she swayed a bit before lifting the mike to her lips and singing.

"Out on the wiley, windy moors
We'd roll and fall in green
You had a temper, like my jealousy
Too hot, too greedy
How could you leave me
When I needed to, possess you
I hated you, I loved you too

Bad dreams in the night
They told me I was going to lose the fight
Leave behind my Wuthering,
Wuthering
Wuthering Heights

Heathcliff, it's me, I'm Cathy I've come home
I'm so cold, let me in your window
Heathcliff, it's me, I'm Cathy I've come home
I'm so cold, let me in your window

Oh it gets dark, it gets lonely
On the other side from you
I pine a lot, I find the lot
Falls through without you
I'm coming back love, cruel Heathcliff
My one dream, my only master

Too long I roam in the night
I'm coming back to his side to put it right
I'm coming home to Wuthering,
Wuthering
Wuthering Heights

Heathcliff, it's me, I'm Cathy I've come home
I'm so cold let me in your window
Heathcliff it's me I'm Cathy I've come home
I'm so cold let me in your window

Oh let me have it, let me grab your soul away
Oh let me have it, let me grab your soul away
You know it's me, Cathy"

Ziva happened to glance over at Tony and saw his eyes were shining. She asked, "Are you crying?"

"NO!" he lied. "DiNozzos do not cry. I—I just had something in my eye."

"Right," she said sarcastically.

Gibbs head-slapped the two of them. "Shut up, why don't you."

Palmer and McGee shivered. This song was giving them the creeps, especially since both of them had read the novel.

Calista couldn't help but smile at the three of them before she had to sing again. Her eyes found her dad's held them. She couldn't look away.

"Heathcliff, it's me, I'm Cathy I've come home
I'm so cold, let me in your window
Heathcliff, it's me, I'm Cathy I've come home
I'm so cold, let me in your window
Heathcliff, it's me, I'm Cathy I've come home
I'm so cold"

When the final notes died away, she smiled slightly, hopped off, and walked over to her table, shoving the mike in Gibbs' hand as she went. The Bossman took one look at the microphone in his hand, looked up, and sighed. "You guys just love torturing me, don't you?"

Everyone on Team NCIS grinned evilly. DiNozzo said, "Yes, yes we do. Now, get on up there!"

He shut up when he felt the familiar stab of pain to the back of his head. Ziva let out a snort of laughter, which sent them all cracking up.

Gibbs andDevon—still hanging out with Sacks and Vance—facepalmed and said in unison, "I'm surrounded by idiots."


And yes, the fangirls are still there. Up next is Valkyrie-chick having Gibbs sing Fleetwood Mac's "Rhiannon," while after that I'm gonna have our favorite Mossad liaison sing Carrie Underwood's "Some Hearts."

Peace out!
