Just a little drabble that just popped into my head. Set after 200, but before 201.

A/N...left 1 word out, so I updated for 1 word!


Abby was working hard in her lab, trying to crack a computer program that Vance had come to her for help with.

"Abs?" Gibbs planted a Caf-Pow in front of Abby.

She turned and looked at Gibbs. A knot formed in the pit of her stomach when she saw his worried face and the fear in his eyes.

"Gibbs, what's wrong? Is the team ok? Ducky and Jimmy ok?"

He shook is head to tell her they were fine and continued in a soft voice. "If I ever leave here and try to distance myself from you, come and get me. Drag me out of that basement kicking and screaming."

"You don't even have to tell me to do that Gibbs. Why would you even say that to me?"

Gibbs saw the tears forming in Abby's eyes, which brought tears to his own eyes. He wrapped his arms around her and whispered into her ear "I already lost my two girls, I don't want to lose you either."
