So, this is obviously the alternate ending! This probably wouldn't exist if I hadn't threatened Charlie for killing Xhail...Anyways, this is set before Gibbs gets back from the hospital.
Tony groaned at the sound of his phone ringing. He knew it was Vance, but he didn't know what he had done to get the director's undivided attention. Tony's heart sank. Had something happened to Gibbs and Ducky on the ride home from the hospital? He reached for the phone, only one way to find out.
"Very Special Agent Anthony DiNozzo," Tony answered.
"DiNozzo," Vance said. "I need you up here now."
Tony stood up and shakily made his way up the stairs, ignoring the questioning looks coming from Ziva and Tim. He made his way to the director's office, feeling that time had slowed down. Tony didn't know what to do if he was delivered bad news about Gibbs, he had been doing so well. Vance waited outside his door with the corners of his mouth turned up in an almost-smile.
"There's someone here to see you," Vance said.
Vance opened the door to reveal a little girl with light brown, almost blonde, hair that was tied back in a braid. She wore a pair of jeans and a white t-shirt with a pink hoodie. Tony was confused. Why would a little girl be there to see him? Then he caught sight of her dazzling green eyes.
"Xhail," Tony breathed, dropping to his knees and placing his hands on her shoulders. "How?"
Xhail smiled, but Vance answered. "The couple who owned the cabin you blew up went on vacation to find their house in ruins. So instead of calling the police, they decided to follow your tracks in the snow and they found Kylie."
"Xhail," Xhail said. "Kyle."
"Where are you staying?" Tony asked her.
"With my daddy and Ethan."
Xhail wrapped her small arms around Tony and squeezed tight. Tony hugged her back, tears threatening to spill over.
"I love you, Tony," Xhail whispered.
"I love you too, Xhail."
