The Letters

It was a sad day when Tim, Gibbs, Abby and Ziva made their way towards the lawyer's office. They had already buried Tony and had mourned. He had died when he protected Gibbs from getting shot. He had gotten shot instead and had died right there.

"Have a seat." The Lawyer said as his secretary led them in.

"I'm sorry for your loss." He said as he watched Tony's teammates sit down. He had talked about them when Tony was making his will and handing him the letters.

"Thank you." They all said at once.

"Tony left you each and everyone of you something besides a letter for each one of you. Tony's money will be divided up to each one of you. Abby will get Tony and Abby's favorite DVD's that they had watched together. Gibbs will get the DVD's that they both had watched and Tony's DVD player and TV. Tim will get some DVD's that they had watched together. Ziva will get the rest of the DVD's. Each one of you was left a letter. You can read it later if you want to, or you can read it here.

"Thank you." They had the letters in their hands and had left the lawyers office. Each one of them went home and opened their letters.

Dear Gibbs,

Gibbs I want to say Thank you for believing in me when nobody else did. Thank you for seeing through the mask that I put up to keep the world away and Thank you for putting up with me though all my jokes and movie trivia talk.

I also want to thank you for being the father that I've always wanted. You had always been there for me. You've let me stay at your house when I needed it. Thank you for listening to me when I needed to talk. You never told me I was worthless and by your head slaps you made me focus and you molded me into being a better agent.

Love your son,


Gibbs read the letter and tears ran down his face. He was glad that he was at home and nobody was around to see the usually stoic marine break down because his son was dead. He had often thought of Tony as his son, but he had never told him that.

Abby sat down and opened the letter that Tony had left for her.

Dear Abby,

I know we didn't get along for the first few weeks of my time in NCIS, but I'm glad that you finally saw the real me under my mask. I want to say thank you for being the little sister that I never had. We sure had good times watching movies and getting into trouble.

I love you little sis.

Love your big brother, Tony

Tim made his way to his apartment and sat down on his chair and opened the letter.

Dear Tim

I'm sorry for teasing you, calling you names and playing pranks on you. When I did it, it wasn't supposed to be a mean thing. It was supposed to make you a stronger agent ready to take nothing from anybody. That and you were like a little brother to me. I never had a brother, so I would never know how a big brother and little brother are supposed to act.

Thank you for being my little brother.

Love your big brother, Tony

Ziva sat down on the couch and opened the letter.


What can I say to you? When you first joined our little family I didn't know what to think of you. Then you grew on us. I'm glad that you are in our little family. I though of Gibbs as my father and Tim and Abby as my little brother and sister. You I thought of the exchange student. I want you to do me a favor. I want you to keep an eye on Gibbs, Abby and McGee. Make sure that Gibbs isn't too mean to the Probie and make sure that he's not mean to you too. Make sure that Gibbs gives hugs to Abby. Make sure that Gibbs is okay and make sure that you are okay too.

Take care of yourself, Ziva.



Ziva sat there with tears running down her face. She was glad that she was at her apartment and not in the bullpen. It would ruin her image of being a former mossad agent who didn't have feelings.

The End
