I dropped my phone and ran downstairs. I shouted to dad "Someone's in Abby's lab!" He got a scared look on his face and ran in Abby's lab right behind me. When I got down there I saw the door broken. I took my gun and motioned my dad that I will go in first. Going in carefully, I found Abby lying on the floor curled up and holding her knees crying. Dad checked out the last of the lab as I leaned over to Abby.
"Abby? Are you hurt?"
"No, Ann. I'm not hurt." She said while crying. "I can't believe what just happened."
"It's okay Abby. Calm down and when you're ready please tell me what happened." I hugged her and she let her tears fall. After a couple of minutes sitting on the floor and hugging dad left the lab. I think he knew I'll take care of Abby.
She pulled out of my hug and whipped her tears away. "Someone wanted to get your DNA tests."
"I don't know, he didn't say. He just said that he would kill you and then Gibbs to let your mom suffer from the pain. He said that your mother doesn't deserve to have a family. I'm so sorry Ann."
"Don't worry about me. I'll keep them safe. They both know I'm their daughter. I told them. Do you remember how he looked like?"
"I didn't see his face. He was wearing a mask and a black jacket with hood."
"That sounds just the same as the guy that tried to shoot her. You gave him the results?" I asked carefully. She nodded. "Don't worry Abby. You just did what you had to. What did he do with the results?"
"He said something about your mom. I don't know exactly what. Then he deleted these results and said to me to not try to make these tests again. Otherwise we will all pay for it." She looked at me with tears in her eyes. "But I stored the copy of the results so we still have them." Trying to smile, she hugged me again. "Thank you for coming in our lives."
"Thanks Abby. I think you should go with me back to my mom. Somehow I have to tell her. And then we will go find my dad, he has a right to know too."
"Okay." She said smiling again.
I helped her get up and we took the elevator up to my mom's office. I went pass Cynthia and noticed she was trying to stop me from going in. She will have to learn that I'm director's daughter and that I will not wait to see my own mom. I'll visit her whenever I will feel to and no matter what she will be doing. Abby smiled to me when she saw Cynthia's surprised look when I opened the door and said "Hi mom! Dad?"
"Ann, Jethro just came up to report what just happened. Abby are you okay?"
"I am, thank you director. Ann said that we should come up here to tell you what exactly happened and then find Gibbs to tell him too."
"Now that you are both here, we can tell you at the same time. Dad, mom, sit please." I continued.
They both sat down and Abby told them what happened. Mom was looking from me to Abby and my dad. At the end she was staring at her hands, wordless. I knew she was trying not to cry. She wouldn't cry in front of dad. She didn't want to show him how weak she is as she was sure that crying just shows people's weakness. She then said to both, Abby and Gibbs "Thank you for sharing information. Now can you please leave my office, I have work to do."
"Jen, talk to your daughter. You need to." Was all that dad said. I thought he would try to make her talk with him but he didn't.
She didn't say anything. When they left she looked at me "Don't… I'm okay."
"No you're not, mom. Dad was right. You have to talk to me."
"I already told you a lot of my life."
"But now you'll have to tell me what this is about too."
"You know why your dad didn't try to convince me to talk to him? Because he knows what this is about. We know who is doing this to me."
I was shocked. It was something from their past. Something they have been through together. "I'm glad that he knows about it. That way I won't have to risk your trust to tell him. Now please, I can help, tell me what happened."
"I don't know how much you can help."
"At least let me try."
She sighed. She knew she couldn't oppose me so she grabbed my hand and led me to sit on sofa next to her. "It was one of our operations together. We had to eliminate two married killers. I had to take care of a woman and he had to take care of a man. He did his job without a problem. I was hesitating. That woman told me she was pregnant, that she was expecting a child. I was pregnant at that time too. I couldn't kill her, I simply couldn't so. After all I shot but I missed her death point. I don't know if I missed on purpose or was I just scared too much. I just hurt her and because of blood loss she lost her baby too. Instead of killing her, I killed an innocent baby that hasn't even come to the world. Of course, she wants revenge. She's here to make me suffer." Mom leaned on me and started crying. I tried to comfort her. We were sitting like this for more than 10 minutes. I didn't want to say anything because I knew if I said anything about a baby or mother I would just make her feel her worse.
This time mom's phone rang. She answered
"Yes… yes she's here… I did… I'll send her." She turned to me "Gibbs wants to see you in bullpen. He asked me if I spoke to you and I said I did. Thank you for listening. Now go, don't make him wait."
Review please! Let me know what you think about it
