Chapter Eight

Ducky just stared at Abby, his mouth open and eyes wide. "Please wait a moment my dear." He pushed a button and placed the phone next to his ear. "Tony, yes uhhhh something has come up." He paused. "Abby heard a few things, nothing specifically and she is currently, I believe the term is, glaring at me. Are you sure? Ok, I will let her know. We'll see you soon."

"Well at you going to explain?" Abby asked as she stood tapped her foot and her hands rested on her hips.

"You have to promise not to tell anyone anything about Anthony when you see him." Abby opened her mouth, but Ducky stopped her. "This is extremely important Abby, you cannot tell anyone, especially Gibbs. This is something you have to do for him, can you do this as his friend."

Abby nodded. "I can and I promise, what about Gibbs?" She asked as she chewed her bottom lip nervously.

"Jethro has had a difficult time dealing with everything that happened. He's going to go to Mexico for a bit, to try and sort his head out."

"How long? Is he coming back?" Abby fought back the tears; her family was falling apart again.

"I don't know Abigail, but it is something that he needs to do and we have to support him." Ducky watched as Abby nodded. He held out his arms and she walked into them wrapping her arms around his waist. "It will all turn out ok, my dear."

"I hope so Ducky, I hope so."

Gibbs couldn't say goodbye to anyone. He needed to get away now. He knew that Ducky was going to come by and keep an eye on his house for him. Gibbs bent down and laid an envelope on the table, he rubbed his thumb across the name. Tony. He hoped that his friend understood and that one day they could get back to the friendship they had once. Gibbs also had to deal with the fact that Tony had feelings for him, well ones of a sexual nature anyway. He wasn't sure how to feel about that.

This was something he had to do for himself, to save himself.

It had been two days before Abby and Ducky headed off to see Tony. She couldn't wait to see him and find out what was going on. Everything was different at work. Ziva and McGee had been put on a different team until things with Gibbs had been sorted out. She hated that her family was being ripped apart like this. Abby hoped that Tony had a very good reason for leaving them like this.

Ducky stopped the car in front of Tony's house and turned to look at the young woman. "Abby, don't forget your promise."

"I won't Ducky; it had better be a damn good reason though." She muttered and watched as Ducky smiled.

"It is." Ducky chuckled at the confused look she gave him.

Tony smiled as he heard the back door open. Maddie and Ducky were the only two with the key code to get around to the back. It was always left open so his two friends could come in when they needed to. They had started to do this as Tony had started to take naps during the day. He smiled when he remembered Maddie telling him that this was part of the way his body coped with being pregnant. This time it was different, Abby was here. He genuinely hoped that she was ok with this. Tony knew how hard it had been on her last time Gibbs, or he had gone. Their little Abby hated change.

Tony stood and watched her come in and to look around the homey room. He had now brought this place, and it seemed as if this was where he was going to raise his child. He held out his hands, and before he could indicate that he wanted a hug, she was in them holding him tight.

"I missed you so much Tony. What's going on? You look fine?" She pulled back and glared at him.

"You'd better sit down for this." Tony sat down, and she followed suit.

"Tony, you're starting to worry me." Abby's eyes were wide, her teeth nibbled at her bottom lip.

"Well Abby, we worked out why Gibbs and I were picked." Tony paused for a moment. "Actually Gibbs was only chosen because he spent a lot of time with me."

"Why did they want this horrible thing to happen to you?" Abby asked.

Tony looked at Ducky and smiled. He placed a hand on his stomach. "It's not a horrible thing. Abby, I'm pregnant."

Abby opened and closed her mouth and then turned to look at the elderly man. "Ducky?"

"It's true my dear." His voice was soft.

Abby turned and pulled Tony into her arms hugging him again. "Wait that means Gibbs is the father. Why didn't you tell him? He would have stayed."

"Abby, he still thinks that he raped me. How do you think he is going to see this child? He needs to get over that first. Gibbs needs to see me as Tony again, not his victim. We haven't even touched on the fact that he may not want another child after what happened to Kelly, let alone if he wanted one with me."

"Can you see why Anthony needed to keep this a secret?"

Abby nodded, reached over and laid a hand on his stomach. "Auntie Abby promises to help keep you safe and if that means keeping it all a secret that is what she will do." Abby whispered to his stomach. She looked up at Tony. "Have you had any scans yet? I have to be able to come and see you lots. If not we have to talk all the time and you have to send me pictures of you getting bigger. I promise I'll hide them so no one else can see."

"Breathe Abby; I'm having my first scan tomorrow. You're both staying here tonight, right? Of course, I'm going to keep in touch, and we'll see about the pictures." Tony grinned after he answered all of her questions.

Abby stared at him and frowned. "How are you going to get the scan? How are you going to get it out?" Her already pale face became whiter.

"Well, we are dealing with one problem at a time. We decided that Maddie's surgery needed some new equipment." Tony paused at the confusion on Abby's face. "Maddie is my friend, the doctor who found out I was expecting. There is something you can do for me."

"Name it." Abby grinned; she was so happy that she was now a part of all of this.

"Well now that you are here, and you will be quicker at it than me. I need to find relatives on my mother's side. Who they are and where, I need to find out if this is genetically linked to them. I don't really want to go and ask my dad, we're not on speaking terms."

"Why not? I thought you guys were getting closer." She liked his dad, Senior always made her smile.

"Well, he made a lot of money and gave me some. I have enough that I don't have to worry about working ever again, and this one," he taps at his stomach, "will never worry either. I found out I was pregnant not long after he gave it to me. I had moved here when he called and asked for it back for a business deal. It seemed as if he had already gone through his, I said no, and he is no longer talking to me. Abby I have to make sure that this one is going to be ok. That's why I bought the equipment for Maddie and this house. I" He stopped and shrugged his shoulders.

"You did the right thing Tony and it's your dad's fault for going through his own like that. You have responsibilities now." Abby's replied softly. "Ok, tell me where your computer is; let's get started on one Anthony DiNozzo's family tree."

Gibbs looked out over the ocean. It was beautiful here, but he feels empty. Something is off, and he's not sure what it is. He came here to deal with what happened so he could go back, to be able to see Tony and not feel disgusted.

"Hey probie, so what brings you back here? You lose your memory again?"

Gibbs turned to look at Mike Franks. "No, something happened, and unfortunately, I remember it all." With that, he looked away and stared back over the water again.

"Well, if you need to talk." Mike muttered as he walked away.

One of the things that Gibbs liked about Mike was that he didn't push and that was what he needed now. He loved Ducky, but that man would go on and on to get his point across. Gibbs had no idea on how to start working through this. Gibbs went to walk back to the cabin when he saw two people who walked hand in hand. He smiled and thought of Shannon as they got closer he could see it was two men.

"Love is love." Gibbs whispered and left the two men for their romantic stroll.

Tony sat down and stared at the family tree that Abby had made for him. It hadn't taken her long at all. Now he wished he hadn't asked because this meant he would have to go and see them. A lot of the family didn't live too far away. Tony was amazed by that, maybe he had walked past them and never knew.

Abby and Ducky weren't going to be there long tomorrow. Abby had a phone call, and they needed her in. She explained that she was out of town and would get back later tomorrow. It was good to see her, and Tony knew that she would keep this a secret. He couldn't help, but smile, Abby was so excited to be an auntie. At least that was now two people from his NCIS life that wanted to continue to be a part of his and his child's life. Tony would tell the others at some point, and he just hoped that they will take it just as well.

Tony reached over and placed the paper on his bedside cabinet. He snuggled down under his duvet and stared at the empty space next to him. He reached over and rubbed his hands over it wishing that Gibbs would be the one laying there. He had mentioned that he wanted to have sex with Gibbs, but he never told anyone how he truly felt. He was hopelessly head over heels in love with his ex- boss. The most stubborn, pain in the ass of a man to ever exist. Tony knew it wouldn't be long before his heart was going to be shattered, and he knew that it would never be whole again. His friends, the people he considered family and his child would have to be enough. Tony was at least honest with himself, which meant he knew hewas never going to have Gibbs. Even though his mind told him that, his heart still held a glimmer of hope which one day would be extinguished.
