So I've been on an NCIS kick lately. I think it's because Halloween is coming and Sean Murray was in Hocus Pocus... yeah, I'll blame that. This story has been floating around in my head for a VERY long time, so I figured I'd attempt to post it. =) Enjoy!


"It looks like your youngest, Admiral McGee," a Navy Lt told a man with salt and pepper hair, his face still stuck in stone, expressionless. Next to him, a small woman stood, her eyes rimmed red from her tears, clutching a hankerchief, and right next to that woman stood their middle child, Sarah McGee.

Admiral Ian McGee and his wife, Leanne, had three children altogether. The oldest being Timothy, the middle Sarah and their baby girl Valerie. And Valerie was in a load of trouble, it seemed.

"What is going to happen?" the Admiral asked. There was silence.

Meanwhile, Special Agent Timothy McGee was pulling off the coat from his suit. Gibbs noticed and made his way over to him.

"What do you think you're doing, McGee?" he asked him. McGee just looked at him for a second, rolling up his sleeves, he looked down again.

"You already know," Tim responded nonchalantly.

"She has a bomb attached to her body," Gibbs stated. McGee nodded.

"I know, boss," he said, swallowing hard. He finished rolling up his sleeves and looked up, straight into Leroy Jethro Gibbs eyes and said, "She's my baby sister, I can't just leave her alone." Gibbs mouth closed completely and he nodded. As much as he didn't want his agent to go in there, he knew there would be no point in trying to stop him, but he obviously wasn't the only one with the same concerns.

"Tim, what are you doing?" Sarah asked as she approached the two men. McGee looked over at her and took in a deep breath. He quickly looked from her to Gibbs and then back again.

"Sarah, she's scared," McGee began, but Sarah just shook her head.

"No, no, you can NOT leave me as an only child..." she said, trying to joke, trying to make light of a very terrifying situation. She couldn't believe Tim would go in there.

"Sarah..." he started, gripping her shoulders to make her look straight at him. She was terrified too. He pulled her into a tight hug. "You aren't going to be an only child. You're going to be stuck with me and Val for a very long time." He pushed her back out to arm's length and watched the tears fall slightly down her face. "I'm going to make sure she gets out of there, but she can't be alone now, with strangers." Sarah nodded. Tim was always so brave, so strong. If only their dad could see this side of him. "I love you."

"I love you too," she said, gulping back a sob. He pulled her into a tight hug again and kissed the top of her head. She pushed away from him, melting back into the crowd. Gibbs was still there, by his agent, waiting to see if his mind was really made up about this.

"Agent McGee, you ready?" said a short, burly man. He was wearing a padded outfit, an obvious statement that he was part of the bomb squad. McGee nodded and looked over at Gibbs, who nodded to the young agent himself. McGee started walking into the building with two other men, both of whom belonged to the bomb squad. Gibbs watched as his agent entered the building before pulling out his phone.

"DiNozzo, you, David, Ducky, Abby, Palmer, everyone, get your ass here," he said into the phone. "We may end up having a scene to process," and he looked over at the building, "but I'm hoping with no bodies."

Meanwhile, inside the building, McGee and the two men walked up to a girl sitting on the floor, tears flowing rapidly. She was terrified. McGee leaned down next to her.

"Val..." he said softly. Her face came up slowly. He reached his hand out to grab hers. "Val, you're going to be okay, these guys are going to get this off of you, alright?" She nodded slowly, her lower lip quivering. She gripped onto his hand, just as he did hers.

"Timmy, why is this happening?" she asked. He shook his head. The truth was, they didn't know, but hopefully they would find out.

"Val," he tried getting her attention back as fresh tears started coming down and she began sobbing. "Valerie!" he said very firmly and she looked up at him, instantly calm. "I don't know why this is happening, but I will be here every step of the way and I will make sure that we BOTH get out of this, alive and safe." She nodded. "I just want you to be strong for me while these guys try to get this thing off of you, okay?" She nodded again, their hands still interlocked.


So yeah, let me know what you guys think =) Thank you!
