N/B I know that Senior is a little OOC, but I needed it to happen for this story. Also my beta and I are having communication problems (we are not getting each other's emails lol). Once this has been checked over I will replace it with the newer version. Hopefully there are not too many mistakes. I am glad to see that I am improving lol.

Chapter Five

Ducky just stared at Tony, he watched as Maddie moved and placed a hand on her friends shoulder in a sign of support.

"I'm sorry Anthony I think I misheard you." He chuckled. "Could you please repeat that?"

Tony looked down at the ground he took a deep breath and then looked back at the elderly man. "I'm pregnant, Maddie found out by accident. We were hoping the three of us could sit down and talk this out, maybe figure a few things and then decided where to go from there."

"Is Jethro the….." Ducky waved his hand around.

"Yes, he is." Tony whispered.

Maddie walked over to show Ducky the medical results on Tony. They needed him to get past this shock factor so they could move on to other things.

"When are you going to tell him?" Ducky asked as he stared at the information, which seemed to be pointing to the fact that Tony was actually telling the truth.

"I don't know that I am Ducky."

Ducky's eyes flew to his. "Anthony, my dear boy you need to tell him. This could be the precise thing that saves him."

"Or it could be the thing that tips him over the edge. You do remember Shannon and Kelly? I can't do this to him. You saw how he looked at me, how do you think he is going to treat this child that he believes is the result of a rape?"


"Not now Ducky, are you going to help us or not?" Tony's eyes were wide with fear.

Ducky smiled and hugged him. "Of course I am going to help, anything you need just let me know. I'll keep this quiet for now."

"Thanks Ducky let's go and sit down so we can talk this through. I have to go and have a snack, doctors' orders." Tony laughed at Maddie's face.

"And quite correct she is Anthony. You have to take care of yourself now that you are going to bring a new life into this world."

"I know Ducky." Tony laughed as he headed into the kitchen.

Ducky waited a few moments to make sure the young man had left before he turned back to Maddie.

"How is he really doing?" Ducky wanted to know.

Maddie sighed. "I am not sure it has fully sunk in yet for him. But, you know Tony he always hides behind jokes."

"Yes I know how our Anthony can be."

"Did you find out any more information about the drugs that Tony and Gibbs were given?"

"Well my first conclusion was correct. Anthony's combination of drugs was all to increase the chances of pregnancy and Jethro well it was a combination of memory suppressant and aphrodisiacs."

"Ok, so it looks like it could be true that it was all aimed at Tony. Gibbs was used because of how much time they spent together."


Tony stood and ate the sandwich he had made and thought about everything that had happened. He jumped ever so slightly as his cell phone went off. Tony pulled it out of his pocket and grinned as the name that read on the display.

"Hi dad, how are things with you?" Tony's face fell as he listened to what his father was saying. "No, you can't have the money back….yes dad I know you gave it to me, but something has come up and I'm not sure if I can work. There are things that I need to look forward for, to plan ahead. Dad, listen…..what…" Tony pulled the cell away from his ear. Tony slammed his hand down on the table and knocked the plate that had his sandwich on it to the floor, it smashing upon impact. He stumbled back and hit the side. The tears fell from his eyes as he slid down the counter to the floor and started to sob.

Ducky and Maddie rushed in to find Tony in tears. They went down to their knees on either side of him.

"Tony, what's wrong?" Maddie asked.

"That was my father," he choked out.

"What did he want Anthony?" Ducky knew what Anthony DiNozzo senior could be like.

"He wanted the money back, when I told him that I couldn't do that because I couldn't work and needed to plan for the future." Tony paused for a moment. "He said he wanted nothing to do with me. He never even asked what was wrong with me so I wouldn't be able to work. My father didn't care." Maddie gently stroked his hair as he curled up and laid his head in her lap.

"We're here for you Tony." Her voice was warm and soothing.

Ducky moved grabbed the dustpan and brush and started to clear up the shards of broken plate. He hated that Tony's father had done this to him, again. In a time like this normally, Ducky would have called Jethro. Ducky believed more than ever that Jethro needed to be told about this baby. It would save his old friend, of this he was sure.


Even though, it was Saturday Abby was staring at the screen in front of her, music was blaring out. Gibbs walked in and noticed that Ziva and McGee were there and something was wrong. A frown looked out of place on the Goths normally sunny disposition.

"Abby." Gibbs shouted.

She turned grinned, turned down the music and then ran over to hug him. "Gibbs."

"What's wrong Abs?" He asked as she moved away.

"I'm worried about Tony."

Gibbs felt that hurt in his chest as soon as she said his name. "What's wrong with him?" He wanted to know, but was also concerned that he was about him.

"I know it's been difficult for him and you. You, I see. I've not heard from Tony, none of us has heard from him. Have you?" Abby asked her eyes wide with concern for her missing friend.

"No I haven't, he might just need time. He's been through a lot." Gibbs muttered through clenched teeth.

Just then Jimmy Palmer walked in and smiled. "Hi."

Abby spun to look at him. "Have you heard from Tony? Has Ducky?"

"Uhhh I haven't and Dr Mallard went out." Jimmy replied with a shrug of his shoulders.

"Out, out where?" Gibbs asked he was supposed to meet the old man here.

"I don't know he had an urgent phone call and had to leave."

Gibbs frowned his gut was screaming at him, but he didn't know why. Something was going on.


Maddie had put Tony to bed and came back downstairs to talk to Ducky.

Ducky was sitting there going through Tony's medical information that she had given him.

"How is he?" Ducky asked.

"Settled, writing a letter I think. He wants you to take it back with you." Maddie replied.

"Yes, of course I will. I have to go and see Jethro anyway."

"Do you think Tony should tell him?"

"Yes I do Maddie. There was always something unique between those two men. They just need a nudge to go in the correct direction. I think this could be it," Ducky answered honestly. "Jethro is suffering because of what he thinks he did to Tony. Until they communicate nothing is going to help him."

"I will continue to talk to Tony and see what I can do. I only want him to be happy."

"So do I, my dear. Now I had better go and see as I have to head off."


Tony sat on his bed and held a sealed envelope and waited for Ducky. The door opened and in walked the medical examiner.

"Hey Ducky, thanks for coming to see me and could you," he stopped for a moment. "This needs to be given to Director Vance."

"Anthony." Ducky whispered as he took hold of the letter.

"I can't stay there, not with this." Tony looked down at his flat, firm stomach.

"I know, but isn't there another way?"

"You tell me Ducky?" Tony shrugged his shoulders.

Ducky looked at him for a moment longer and sighed. He knew that was nothing else that could be done. "Very well my boy. I'll be back tomorrow."

"Bye Duck and thank you."

Ducky smiled at him and waved as he left.

Tony curled up on the bed and hugged a pillow and started to cry. He had never felt so lost and alone.


Ducky had finally made it back to the yard and was glad to hear that Director Vance was in his office. He hadn't wanted to get this over and done with. The only other problem was all the others were there, as well. His main concern was over Jethro and if this would be the thing that tipped him over the edge.

He knocked on the office door and waited until he heard the deep voice from within call out.

Leon Vance looked up as Ducky walked in. "Dr Mallard, is Gibbs ok?"

"Director Vance, I'm not here about Jethro, but saying that what I am about to do will not help matters." Ducky walked over and handed him the envelope.

"Is there something you want to tell me Dr Mallard?" Leon looked at him with a raised eyebrow.

"This is not about me Director. I think you better read it."

Leon nodded and slid open the envelope and pulling out the plain white paper. Once he opened it, he began to read, his eyes widening in surprise.

"Is this real?" Vance had to ask.

"Yes it is Jethro is here in the lab with Abby."

"I suppose this would be the best time to do this." Leon signed knowing there were going to be explosions.


Gibbs growled as he opened Vance's door. "What the hell do you want Leon?" He stopped in surprise as he saw Ducky sitting there. "This is not about my health again is it?"

"No Gibbs it's not." Leon answered.

"Please Jethro just listen to him. It's important."

Gibbs turned back and waved his hand at Leon to continue.

"Senior field agent Anthony DiNozzo has resigned." Leon said bluntly.
