A/N: Okay so I am so sorry but life has just been so hectic recently, I have had to deal with a few problems with my friends and family and between that and homework I just haven't had the time to update! I tried to update last week but my laptop was having none of it!

"How are you getting on?" Kevin Nicoleson asked his Director, nodding towards the book that was on her lap.
"Slow and steady!" Jenny replied with a small sigh.
"Slow and steady wins the race!" Kevin replied with a laugh.
Jenny smiled, "Yes, I guess that's true!"
And Agent Kevin Nicoleson was right, after six long, hard months of pure determination Jenny had done it, she had finally learnt sign language. She always had been a quick learner. Especially when it came to languages.
It was a Sunday. It was the one day that Jenny didn't have to work. The one day she could relax. The night before she had been to a restaurant with Ziva and Ducky and then they went to Ducky's house afterwards. The three friends had been reminiscing about the memories they had shared and as a result she had not got home until gone past midnight. She had got home laid in bed and literately fell asleep as soon as her head hit the pillow.
It was now 7am and she was fast asleep. Sleep had taken over and she was looking forward to having a nice, long lay in. She didn't plan to wake up until at least 10am. She was relaxed, at peace and totally de-stressed in the tranquillity.
But, as always, the peace didn't last long. Ring. Ring! RING. RING! The phone was gradually getting louder pulling her out of her deep and relaxing sleep. Jenny sighed, picking up the phone she looked at the caller ID, it was Cynthia, "Hello?" She asked, trying to sound cheerful and happy but instead she just sounded groggy.
Cynthia could here that her boss was tired and didn't want to take away her only day of rest, "I'm sorry Director, but SecNav wants you, you need to come in. It is something to do with the anti-terrorist operation."
"But that op wasn't planned for today. I though it was all going down on Thursday?" Jenny asked. She was annoyed. Couldn't she have one day of rest?
"I don't know Director. He didn't tell me the details. He just told me to call you and the MCRT in as well as Mr Mallard, Mr Palmer and Miss Scuito," Cynthia replied.
"Okay thank you Cynthia!" Jenny told her colleague as she pulled a suit out of her wardrobe and then she hung up. "Jethro will be in such a great mood!" She muttered under her breath.
Out of her wardrobe she took a black pinstripe skirt and matching waistcoat and a emerald green blouse. Then she put in her favourite emerald earrings, and put on the matching necklace. Then she put on some make-up, it was natural but noticeable and her eye-shadow made her eye stand out. She next put on her shoes; emerald swede heels.
She was just about to leave the house but as she walked through the hallway she caught a look at herself in the mirror and realised, in the rush of getting to work, she had forgotten to do her hair and was still wearing her 'bed head'. "For goodness sake!" She sighed, looking at her watch she realised that she didn't have much time so she just got her hairbrush and brushed her long, fiery hair. Then, for the first time since she became Director she left the house for work with her hair down; out of it's normal bun.
Jenny arrived at NCIS. She had been briefed by Ziva via text message and headed straight for Abby's lab.
As she walked through the Navy Yard, she turned heads. She looked younger, more beautiful and radiant than ever. Her hair, which was usually pulled up into a bun was flowing down her back, wavy and shining. She even gained a few wolf whistles.
She then got in the elevator which took her to the right floor, she got off it at the sound of the ding and headed for the Lab. She could hear the people in the Lab were in deep conversation. She walked in, unnoticed by the busy occupants of the Lab. She snook up behind her friends and colleagues and made them jump. She laughed and they turned around in awe at how great she looked. She looked like she was the fun loving self that they all knew and loved but only saw outside of work.
Gibbs was doing a double take. She looked just as, no, even more beautiful than she did in Paris. He turned and signed to Abby, 'She looks gorgeous! Just like when we were in Paris!'
Abby couldn't help but awe out loud and Jenny had to bite her lip to stop herself from awing to, she felt like she could melt! 'Please tell me why you haven't talked to her yet! And what happened in Paris?'
Gibbs smiled a bit. 'That is something that you will never know Abby! And I haven't talked to her because I can't!' He smiled a bit but then he frowned.
Abby was a woman on a mission, 'Gibbs, you love her. Why can't you just talk to her?'
'Because...' Gibbs tried and couldn't come up with a reason. He was stumped.
'Exactly!' Abby signed in triumph; she loves to be right!
Jenny felt like she couldn't breath, 'Jethro loves me!' She thought. She was on top of the world. She felt like she was about to faint. She was so happy that she felt that she needed to get out the room at the risk of everyone noticing.
But she couldn't leave. She had a job to do,"So why am I here at 7:30am on a Sunday morning?"
Gibbs snapped back into professional mode, "SecNav wants us to oversee the anti-terrorist op. As you know, it was meant to be on Thursday but circumstances have changed and we need to act today." Then he looked at the people around him, "Don't you guys need to go back down to the bullpen?"
Everyone nodded and left himself and Jenny alone.
Jenny was still smiling like a little girl in a sweet shop, "Okay. I guess these things never do go to plan..." She replied, "But I would much rather be in bed!"
Gibbs smiled and then Jenny finally realised what she had said, still smiling she corrected herself, "Asleep!" But while she wanted to sleep, that is not what she would much rather do in bed.
Gibbs raised his eyebrows, as if to say, 'Really?'
A/N: Thanks for reading... and hopefully reviewing! This Thursday I have a very important (or very, very important, as my three year old self would say) RE exam, so I will try and update before then or on Friday night but hopefully you will have a new chapter by the weekend!
JIBBS!... What do you think is going to happen next?
At the end of your review, lets try something new, put your country at the end of the reviews so I know who is reading this! I will start...

P.S. Who watched Eurovision! I was just sat there saying 'At least we have a point- Thank you Belguim!'... 'I think I am going to cry... we are last!- HANG ON A MINUTE! Estonia has given five points to Englebert. You know what this means? It means we're... oh, we're still last. Oh.' ... and ''Yes! Yes! I love you Latvia and your two points!... And Ireland too!' What place did you guys come at Eurovision?... If you live in Europe that is!
