'I think that sounds a fantastic idea.' Tony smiled at her. 'Thank you for keeping me here.'

'Tony, if you left we would be the ones to miss out. You have many years of experience here at NCIS. Then of course the different police departments you worked in. I wouldn't like to see any other organisation take advantage of that, apart from us.'

'Well, I hope I manage to live up to your expectations?' Tony grinned at her.

'You already have. You are signed off until we get the courses sorted out for you. Cynthia will call you and let you know. When you finish with the first one come back here and see me. We then can discuss if you are happy with it all.' Jenny stood up and shook Jenny's hand. 'Congratulations on your promotion Agent DiNozzo. Let's go and tell Gibbs and his team the good news.'

'That definitely sounds like a good idea.' Tony chuckled as they headed out of the office.


Gibbs could feel eyes on him, so he looked up. Coming down the stairs was Tony and Jenny, a present and an ex. He smiled as he caught Tony's eyes. As much as he wanted him still to be working here, it didn't matter. They would make time for each other. Tony was worth the effort.

'Agent Gibbs, I thought I would come down, and you and Tony's former team-mates could celebrate the fantastic news.'

Just as Jenny was going to explain the elevator doors opened and in walked Ducky, Abby and Palmer. It was obvious that Cynthia had been on the phone to them.

'Director.' Ducky nodded his head towards her, and then he smiled at Tony.

'I'm glad that you are all here, I am sure Tony is as well so you can share in his happy news.'

'What news is that director?' Abby asked, bouncing on her the balls of her feet.

'Tony has been given a promoted to an 'Intelligence Specialist'. He will be starting this position, which will be based here after he has completed his courses. Tony will also be teaching some of our more promising recruit's investigation techniques. They will be going through cold cases. It will also teach them the paperwork, so once they are assigned they can jump straight in with whatever team they end up working with.'

'Yay Tony.' Abby jumped into his arms and hugged him tightly.

'Are you sure?' Tim asked.

Jenny turned and glared at him. 'Agent McGee, you may have excellent skills when it comes to computers. If you look at the other classes at Fletc, Agent DiNozzo was far above you. He has more experience in investigating, in dealing with people, and of course, the paperwork. I don't where this attitude has come from, but I don't like it. You treat everyone you work with respect, even if you don't like them. I will talk to you soon Tony.' She looked at Gibbs and nodded.

McGee's head was down as he stared at his shoes. Ziva stood by him and placed a hand on his shoulder.

'Congratulations, I was right all those years ago.' Gibbs grinned at Tony. 'I told you I didn't waste good, and you have never, ever let me down.'

'We have to go. Come down and see me soon.' Abby hugged him once more.

'You deserved it Tony.' Palmer grins and then pats him on the shoulder.

'Congratulations my dear boy, I always knew that we would see marvellous things from you.' Ducky told him.

Tony blushed at the compliment, and he couldn't wipe the smile off his face.

'Why do you say that?' Ziva asked.

'Well, our dear Anthony here. He is the only person that Jethro found, recommended and insisted that he join his team.' Ducky explained.

'What about us?' Tim asked angrily.

Stan stood and watched things quietly. He remembered the conversation that he had with Tony. How long did it take Gibbs to know his name, and with Tony he had always known it. What was so remarkable about DiNozzo?

'Well, I felt that I needed to do something for Kate. I mean it was our fault she was in trouble. If it wasn't for Tony, McGee you wouldn't be here. I couldn't stand how terrified you were of me, and the stuttering. Tony thought there was something about you. He felt you would do well. I trust him, so here you are. Ziva, you were not my choice and then I felt obligated. I thought that we all respected each other. I was wrong on that count. I have told you before; Tony is the best young agent I have EVER worked with. He has earned your respect. The fact that you think you are better, well that kind of attitude doesn't work here. It better stop. If I see any more of it, you will be booted of my team so fast it will make your head spin.'

'Yes boss.' Tim whispered. He had no idea Tony was the reason he was at the MCRT. He had always thought it was his skills.

Tony watched as Ducky, Palmer and Abby had finally moved over to the elevator. He waved at them one more time before they vanished behind the closing doors.

'Get back to work.' Gibbs ordered.

'Still on for lunch?' Tony whispered turned away from the team.

'Do you want to grab some food and wait for me at my place?' Gibbs asked.

'Sounds good to me, I'll see you there.' Tony replied. He winked at Gibbs and headed towards the elevator.

'DiNozzo.' Gibbs called out; he waited until Tony turned to look at him. 'You deserved the promotion. You deserved your own team a few years after you were on mine. I was selfish, I wanted the best, and that was you.'

'I'm glad you did. I learnt a lot from you, Boss.' Tony winked at him.

Gibbs grinned and shook his head as he walked towards his desk. Stan glared at DiNozzo's back. He just couldn't get rid of that man. It also seemed that the two men were closer now that they weren't working with each other. This is something that had to be stopped. There had to be something that he could do.
