This is my first NCIS fanfic. I hope you like it.

I do not own NCIS!

The Song is from the movie "Narnia" and written by Regina Spektor.

Maybe it is a little to soft for Ziva but I like the lyrics.

Now enjoy!

The Call

It started out as a feeling
Which then grew into a hope
Which then turned into a quiet thought
Which then turned into a quiet word

Family. I didn't realise it at first, but these people I met and worked with, when I came to the NCIS, became my first real family in this world. Also we were not related at all I suddenly felt like I had two brothers, a sister and mother and father.

And then that word grew louder and louder
'Til it was a battle cry

Family. This word sneaked into my mind. And I didn't want it to be true, because back in Israel I already had siblings and parents. And I was taught, that the family was important. That I had always to be true to my family. If I only had known that it included to kill my brother and just obey my fathers orders.

I'll come back
When you call me
No need to say goodbye

Then something happened that chanced the image of my new family. Tony killed him… my love.

When we arrived in Tel Aviv, I was not sure if the feeling of a family still was right. Tony was not my brother, he could never be after that. And I felt betrayed by my biological father and the Mossad itself. I just had to figure out if I wanted to go back to America and I made the wrong decision. I stayed in Israel.

Just because every thing's changing
Doesn't mean it's never been this way before
All you can do is try to know
Who your friends are as you head off to the war

Yes, everything hat changed. And at the same time it was just like before I went to the USA. I was with my father and took his orders. I worked with the same people I had worked with before. But I didn't care about any of it. Not even about my live. And then I did the next mistake. I went into a war not caring about the people, that came with me. Who they were and what they were.

Pick a star on the dark horizon
And follow the light

The time they had captured me was dark. And painful and without hope. I had to admit to myself, that my father didn't care about me enough to help me out. To rescue me. And since I left the NCIS they would not care either.

You'll come back
When it's over
No need to say goodbye

You'll come back
When it's over
No need to say goodbye

But they did. They came for me. And they brought me home.

Now, we're back to the beginning
It's just a feeling and no one knows yet
But just because they can't feel it too
Doesn't mean that you have to forget

And now I'm back at the office. Me, McGee, Tony and Gibbs we all look horrible. But we are back and alive. When Abby hugged me I thought that maybe, just maybe everything is going to be alright.

Let your memories grow stronger and stronger
'Til they're before your eyes

I still feel strange when Tony is around, but I think deep inside me I have forgiven him. I'll never forget that he killed my love, but I will also always remember that he was part of the team that rescued me. Part of the family. The real family.

You'll come back
When they call you
No need to say goodbye

You'll come back
When they call you
No need to say goodbye

The family that cared for me and came when I was in trouble.

The End
